@SpunkyStrings tweette voor aandacht op dit:
In dit HLN bericht lezen we dat de debit maestro kaart vervangen wordt de debit mastercard.…
U krijgt dus een mastercard, en wat lezen we op de website van mastercard :…
Op de website van mastercard lezen we dat mastercard samenwerking met o.a. de #VN en #WEF om de #CO2 voetafdruk bij te houden voor elke betaling, om "de impact van de klimaatverandering bij de consument te leggen". #doconomy
De vermeende #CO2 hetze, waar nog steeds geen bewijs voor bestaat wordt dus verder gebruikt om de #privacy te kunnen negeren en is een stap naar een mogelijke beperking op basis van uw #CO2 voetafdruk.

#IA - La tecnología #disruptiva que está cambiando todo 🧵

🟠 Key notes

🟢 Analistas / Grupos de #Research

🔴 Teorias relevantes indirectamente relacionadas al tema.
🟠 La tecnología disruptiva no busca "replicar".Usualmente, se elude y hace redundantes los viejos estándares y procesos.

🟠 Tendemos a subestimar el poder de la tecnología para convertir el trabajo en persona en trabajo escalable.

🟠En muchas profesiones “creativas”, menos personas ya pueden capturar una mayor participación del mercado que nunca. Considero que veremos lo mismo en las industrias donde IA logre desarrollarse más.

Coup d'œil sur l'état global du marché 👇
1/29 Pour ceux qui ont passé les dix dernières années dans une grotte, petit rappel.

You think #Putin is stupid & didnt think of anything west would do?
Read this on #Russia getting ready for tackling #Ukraine️.

On Dec 5th last year, Putin came to India for few hours & agreed to take Indian payment systems (RuPay) to Russia.
This is the same system which is giving sleepless nights to #Mastercard & #Visa.

It's a far better & cheaper payments system compared to any in the world.

In case of USA weaponising it's tech companies, sovereign nations will need something to keep their digital payments on
And this risk became an actual event as seen during #RussianUkrainianWar. USA blocked access to electronic payments resulting in severe inconvenience to Russian public.
But let's see what did Putin plan!

He asked India to setup RuPay system in Russia so that an alternative..

[THREAD] Les cartes de paiements #crypto

Qu'est ce qu'une carte de paiement crypto ? Quels sont les différents Types ? L'exemple @Cryptocom

Les cartes de paiement crypto fonctionnent de la même façon que les cartes bancaire traditionnelles.
La principale différence repose sur le fait qu'elles peuvent s'appuyer sur des cryptos OU de monnaie FIAT pour réaliser des achats.
Ces cartes peuvent être physiques, digitales ou les deux.

Les plus connues sont certifiées par des #VISA ou #Mastercard et sont donc utilisables dans n'importe quel point de vente ou site en ligne.

In several months past,there have been numerous reports of fraudulent transactions on clients' accounts via E-channels.

Here are a few of the reasons why banks are "hesitant to assist."

#Bank #Nigeria
1. INDEMNITY: When you want an E-banking Solution (ATM, Mobile/Internet Banking, etc.), you must fill out and sign an Indemnity Form. Simply put, you are accepting culpability for fraudulent transactions that occur on your account through such e-channels and absolving the bank,
of any legal repercussions.

Now, if the bank discovers that the fraud was due to your negligence, "OYO" is your name.

2. RESOURCE CONSTRAINTS: Even if the bank decides to assist with the investigation, manpower and time are not luxury "things" that can be spared.

De esta manera irrumpe con fuerza el #eugenismo, movimiento político e ideológico que predica una mejora cualitativa y biológica de la población, frente a una posible mejora moral o cultural. Image

#VISA outlines #Interoperability for #CBDC payments through a Universal Payments Channel (UPC)

Small thread on how it ties in to @quant_network.…
"The UPC protocol facilitates payments through an entity, called the UPC hub (or server — we use the terms interchangeably), which acts as a gateway to receive payment requests from registered sending parties and routes them to registered recipient parties,

UPC is acting as a 'Gateway' between both #CBDCs which is the method that quant have taken with their API gateway #Interoperability solution.
"Ultimately, Visa aims for UPC to serve as a "network of blockchain networks" to move digital currencies around."
