Gen Kelly - What Happens When a Soldier Dies, 1849 "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

Good morning, Im still reporting on: Gen Kelly - What Happens When a Soldier Dies, 1849 Synopsis: Yesterday, General John F. Kelly, took to the podium in the long thin White House press room and gently lambasted the assembled White House press corps for their coverage of a certain opportunistic, showboat congresswoman who outrageously criticized President Trump for telling the wife of a Green Beret who had just been killed in Niger. Ive had the extreme honor to known several Green Berets and other Special Operations folks one of whom Im related to - and I can tell you that these are not normal people. These are the most highly-trained human beings on the planet. They speak multiple languages. They keep their bodies in tip-top condition and at this high, high level, they know what they signed up for. They know that they are the very tip of the spear of freedom. These people live lives of self-sacrifice and selfless service to this nation and thats why when one of them falls in battle, this nation stops and comes to attention. They dont have to be where they were. They have skills that that they could cash in on in the American economy at any time, but they know they are on the leading edge and once you taste that leading edge, you just never want to leave. Ive been there, and thats why I do what I do now at an age when most people are happy to retire and just watch sporting events. To my friends and relatives still self-sacrificially living on that leading edge right now today I salute you, and you can be sure that as long as I have breath in me, I will do everything in my power to support and defend what you do. General Kelly lost a son in Afghanistan. I cant imagine the crushing loss of such a superbly-trained individual in whom you have put everything a parent can throw into a child all the hopes and dreams and love. Even a tough General like Kelly, almost breaks down twice recounting his loss.

Tucker - Theres Dishonesty in Here Somewhere, 1848 "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

SeaShell Diamond Gallery, Custom Fine Jewelry Made in Hawaii. 808-338-9988; SeaShellDiamondGallery.com For a copy of the report mentioned herein, request by email to: contact@citizens-4-integrity.com Good afternoon, Im still reporting on: Tucker - Theres Dishonesty in Here Somewhere, 1848 Synopsis: Tucker Carlson is the best reporter in TV journalism. Hes prudently cautious, but relentless when he sees the government being involved in deceiving the public. This is obviously true to anyone who has followed the tangled web of pronouncements from the FBI in Las Vegas, and it obviously troubled Sheriff troubled because he knows hes having to dispense information that is less than the truth. Tucker and columnist Mark Stein have a sometimes hilarious and sometimes tragically serious discussion of yesterdays so-called interview of Vegas security guard, Jesus Campos, and Mandalay Bay engineer, Stephen Schuck on Ellen DeGeneress afternoon talk show. [insert] By the way, there is a great new report from Citizens-4-Integrity on the Las Vegas mass shooting. Although I cant agree with a few of their conclusions I think their conclusions about the helicopter are wrong because they think it was much closer to the hotel than it obviously is. But other than that, this is THE best accumulation of the fast-moving events surrounding this incident around. These folks have done a great service to humanity. For example: Its conclusion is that there were at least two guns involved on assault type rifle that shot only 6 rounds/second, and a heavier machine gut that pumped out fire at nearly twice that rate. They also ask very common-sense questions: Why were there so many weapons 23 by some accounts? If he were going to commit this type of crime alone he likely would have brought 4-5 weapons at the most. More than that would complicate planning, not be needed, and would only increase the chance of being caught.

Bitcoin surges to over $6,000 setting new record "IndyWatch Feed World"

The worlds most popular digital currency, Bitcoin, has topped another threshold, reaching $6,031 on Friday. It comes less than a week after the crypto currency smashed the $5,000 benchmark.
.

Just two days before climbing to the new high, Bitcoin registered its largest one-day drop in a month, plummeting by more than 8 percent following a release of the Commodity Futures Trading Commission [CFTC] primer, envisioning tighter oversight over digital tokens.

The report put virtual currencies in the same category with securities, thus making them a subject of the relevant securities laws. The newly released report echoes the stance of the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) on the issue, which said in July that digital currency sales should fall under the scope of the US federal securities laws. The debate over whether to view digital tokens issued through initial coin offerings as commodities has been raging in the US and in another countries.

Bitcoin plunged to below $3,000 in September after China shut down cryptocurrency exchanges. Russia, where Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies are not currently regulated by law, this month announced it would start regulating issuing, mining and circulation of cryptocurrencies. Russian President Vladimir Putin noted that it is necessary to diminish the risks associated with cryptocurrencies, as at present nobody can be held responsible for currency bubbles or other illicit activities with the tokens.

Recently, the Russian Central Bank said that it may block Bitcoin and other cryptocurrency exchange websites as the nature of their operations are akin to financial pyramid schemes.

We have seen how Bitcoin has transformed from a payment unit into an asset, which is bought in order to obtain a high yield in a short period of time. This is a definition of a pyramid, the first deputy governor of the Bank of Russia Sergey Shvetsov said in October.

Despite constant fears of a looming governmental crackdown, Bitcoins value has increased by more than 500 percent in 2017.

The Bitcoin Gold (BTG) User Activated Soft Fork Happening in Less than 5 Days Crypto Mining Blog

Earlier this month we have told you about the upcoming Bitcoin fork called Bitcoin Gold (BTG), but now just a couple of days before it actually happening there are much more details than at the initial announcement. There are still quite a few things that are not clear yet, but the user interest in this fork is growing and that is no wonder when users holding BTC will be getting the same amount of BTG on October 25 when the fork is expected to happen. Bitcoin Gold (BTG) forks at block 491407 where a snapshot of the Bitcoin blockchain will be made in order to credit Bitcoin holders with their Bitcoin Gold coins (the same amount of BTC they hold will be available in BTG). Bitcoin Gold promises replay protection, meaning that after the fork occurs the two networks will continue to function independently form each other and transactions of coins in one of them will not affect the other one.

One of the most interesting things about the new Bitcoin Gold (BTG) is that after forking from Bitcoin it will adopt a different mining algorithm and the chosen one is Equihash (the one introduced by ZCash), so the new coin will be mineable with video cards and not ASICs. This is what is essentially getting the attention of the many GPU miner out there that do not have any or just a little ASIC mining power. This is essentially eliminating the large ASIC mining farms from able to mine the coin as there are currently no known ASIC miners available for the Equihash algorithm, though it still cannot do anything about any large GPU mining farms and such also exist similar to the big ASIC mining farms. Still smaller GPU miners will be able to get into the mining of Bitcoin Gold (BTG) even with one video card, something they are not able to do with Bitcoin anymore.

There are still thing that are not clear about the fork such as what exchanges will support it and will credit the users holding Bitcoin with BTG after the fork. Some exchanges like HitBTC and Yobit, along with a few mining pools, have expressed their will to support Bitcoin Gold. The biggest and most used Bitcoin exchanges however are still to come out with off...

The Next Generation of Currency Wars: Private vs. State-backed Crypto "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

By: Tho Bishop
Cryptomoney-Cryptocurrency-Cryptography-Btc-Bitcoin-1813505.jpg

Recently Russia announced that it will be unleashing a CryptoRuble, just a week after Vladimir Putin strongly criticized Bitcoin and other private cryptocurrencies.  When announcing the move, Minister of Communications Nikolay Nikiforov acknowledged that it was in part inspired by the aim of getting ahead of other governments:

I confidently declare that we run CryptoRuble for one simple reason: if we do not, then after two months our neighbors in the EurAsEC will.

In doing so, Russia is following the lead of another country that too has become hostile to private crypto, China. Last July the Peoples Bank of China became the first central bank to announce it had developed a crypto-prototype that it plans to offer alongside the traditional renminbi.

That the first forays into state-backed cryptocurrency comes from two countries with a history of restricting a free and open internet is not surprising. While Bitcoin originated as a way to opt out of government control of money supply, increasingly governments see the underlying technology as a way to increase their control of the economy.

As Xiong Yue explained:

For example, if the government plans to subsidize certain farms, say some corn farms, to support this sector of agriculture, they can directly add a certain amount of money to th...

  2. The Bitcoin Gospel
    Is bitcoin the blueprint for a bankless currency, or the biggest pyramid scheme ever? When the financial world collapsed in 2008, a mysterious genius under the pseudonym Satoshi Nakamoto presented the architecture for the perfect, bankless currency. Bitcoins cant be forged, and can be transferred worldwide with one click of a button, without transaction costs. Up till today, nobody knows who Nakamoto is, but his invention of the first decentralized cryptocurrency became world-famous within a couple of years. Bitcoin Jesus Roger Ver invested massively in bitcoins when they were still worth less than a dollar, and in 2013 he saw the bitcoin exchange rate reaching as much as 1000 dollars. Whats the bottom line, now that this globally disruptive currency has grown to maturity?

As shown above, we previously established a point of Preliminary Supply, a strong Buying Climax, a knee-jerk reaction into an Automatic Reaction low, and a weak rally that ultimately led to a Sign of Weakness that pushed us down several hundred dollars. The rebound from this low was strong and occurred on very high volume. However, over the length of the rally post-sign-of-weakness, the volume has begun to taper as the momentum indicators are showing signs of bullish exhaustion as it finds its local high at around the $5,700 values.

One of the following milestones for the Wyckoff Distribution phase is one last dip as it tests the previous support around the Automatic Reaction low. As of the the time of this article, the current market trend is showing signs of bearish divergence on the 120-minute candles.  Zooming in closer, we can see clear signs of a potential small reversal:

Both the RSI and MACD are showing signs of bullish exhaustion throughout the length of this rally. Any pullback will likely be supported by the Automatic Reacti...

Hardware Wallet Advantages

A cryptocurrency hardware wallet is a physical device that stores private keys in a protected area within the device.

To date, there really hasnt been any major incidents of large-scale hardware wallet vulnerabilities or verifiable incidents of funds stolen by hackers.

This Blockchain-Powered Platform Aims to Disrupt the Esport Gambling Industry

Esports wagering is a large and growing global industry at the intersection between gambling, technology and entertainment. In their 2017 Global Esports Markets Report, Newzoo found that China and North America will generate $362 million during 2017, or 52 percent of global esports industry's revenue. If the esports industry continues on the same growth trajectory, the global industry is expected to generate $1.4 billion in 2020.

Unikrns blockchain-powered platform is tapping into this growth industry, offering services such as skill and spectator betting applications, a tournament series, team ownership, a casino group and multimedia content for the esports fanbase.

Along with launching an initial coin offering (ICO) in mid-September, the company has expanded its offerings to the European Union through a joint venture with RBP, a key player in the online horserace and sports betting market, and plans to launch a new skills-based product.

Expanding across the European Union comes after the platform was granted a much coveted gaming license from the Malta Gaming Authority (MGA). As one of the first European Territories to regulate online gambling, Malta has reportedly become a staunch regulatory supporter over the past several years. Today, over 100 companies currently hold a license issued by the MGA including software developers, online casinos and Remote iGaming operators.

Though obtaining a gaming license from the MGA took more than a year, for Unikrn, it has provided an opportunity to enhance their reputation as a legitimate esports wagering platform; something critical for their successful expansion and token sale. They [MGA] are by every measure the gold standard and one of of the most respected authorities for responsible and ethical wagering, said Unikrn founder and CEO Rahul Sood in a ...

dstms ZCash Nvidia Miner v0.5.2 Available For Windows Now Crypto Mining Blog

The dstms ZCash Nvidia Miner is supposed to be slightly faster than the popular and widely used EWBFs CUDA Zcash miner that has not been updated for quite some time, so you might want to give the new miner a try. Our initial tests show a bit better hashrate with the same GPU settings as with the EWBF, though the difference is not huge. Do note that dstms miner has its own specifics that you need to get used with such as the use of a separate thread for each GPU and getting 6 separate workers on the pool from one mining rig for example. The interface could also use some improvements and some color coding can further help in readability, but in general it is quite Ok even at the moment. Do note that the 64-bit Windows binary is built with Visual Studio 2015, so if you do not have the Visual C++ Redistributable for Visual Studio 2015 installed you might get an error about a missing DLL.

What Lightning Will Look Like: Lightning Labs Has Announced Its User Interface Wallet

Development of the lightning networkthe highly-anticipated second-layer Bitcoin protocol for instant microtransactions, continues to inch forward.

Lightning Labs, major contributor to the lightning network daemon, lnd, announced its cross-platform Lightning Desktop App last week. The open-source lightning wallet is essentially a user interface (UI) built on top of lnd and powered by Lightning Labs new open-source Bitcoin light client, Neutrino.

This is the first functioning user interface for both sending and receiving lightning transactions with a light client mode, Lightning Labs CEO Elizabeth Stark told Bitcoin Magazine.

The lightning network is currently being developed by several teams working on different but interoperable implementations of the protocol. Several of these implementations are functional, though only on Bitcoins test network (testnet): a sort of copy of the Bitcoin network with valueless coins specifically designed for testing new applications and more.

But, while there are already several lightning daemons available for testnet, most are only usable via command line tools. Developers Olaoluwa Osuntokun, Bryan Vu and Case Sandberg collaborated to now extend lnd with the new Lightning Desktop App to provide a user interface.

What a Gold-Backed Yuan and Cryptocurrencies May Mean for the Dollar "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

By: Doug French
yuan.PNG

Amoungst all the crypto news this, and crypto news that, was a tiny item appearing in the Nikkei Asian Review on September 1st. Reporting from Denpasar, Indonesia, Damon Evans wrote, China is expected shortly to launch a crude oil futures contract priced in yuan and convertible into gold in what analysts say could be a game-changer for the industry.

Not bitcoin backed, not ethereum backed, g-o-l-d backed. How low tech of the Chinese. For the moment, oil is priced in dollars, whether its Brent or West Texas Intermediate.

Evans explained,

China's move will allow exporters such as Russia and Iran to circumvent U.S. sanctions by trading in yuan. To further entice trade, China (the worlds largest oil importer) says the yuan will be fully convertible into gold on exchanges in Shanghai and Hong Kong.

This will be China's first commodities futures contract open to foreign companies such as investment funds, trading houses and petroleum companies. 

China has wanted to unshackle itself from the dollar for a long time and now theyre giving yuan-denominated gold contracts a third try.

"It is a mechanism which is likely to appeal to oil producers that prefer to avoid using dollars, and are not ready to accept that being paid in yuan for oil sales to China is a good idea either," Alasdair Macleod, head of research at Goldmoney, said.

"It's a transfer of holding their assets in black liquid to yellow metal. It's a strategic move swapping oil for gold, rather than for U.S. Treasuries, which can be printed out of thin air," Grant Williams explained.  

If Saudi Arabia accepts yuan settlement for oil, Louis-Vincent Gave said, "this would go down like a lead balloon in Washington, where the U.S. Treasury would see this as a threat to the dollar's hegemony... and it is unlikely the U.S. would continue to approve modern weapon sales to Saudi and the embedded protection of the House of Saud [the kingdom's ruling family] that comes with them."

Say China buys into Saudi Aramco, the pricing of Saudi oil could shift from U.S. dollars to yuan, said Macleod. Crucially, "if China can tie in Aramco, with Russia, Iran et al, she will have a degree of influence over nearly 40% of global production, and will be able to progress her desire to exclude dollars for yuan," he said.

Gold Remains Goldman Sachs Refuge
