1/The BIS and the Bank of England shared the results of a very impressive retail #CBDC pilot called Project Rosalind. 

#Bitcoin maximalists will have a heart attack but central banks will rejoice. 

Too busy to read the 35+ pages of the report? Here are the key takeaways:

🧵👇 Image
2/ The project is named after British scientist Rosalind Franklin, whose work was key on DNA sequencing.

The goal was to explore practical features of a retail CBDC and how APIs could enable to interact with private sector providers to safely provide retail payments. Image
3/ There are various type of retail CBDC and the BIS chose a two-tier CBDC model. 

As I explain in my last book, there are also various types of two-tier retail CBDC models.

To simplify, it comes to whether the central bank has identifiable record of all transactions or not. Image

The litmus test for giving government power that could be irreversible is NOT what you think of those currently in power when you like them. It’s what your worst enemies would do with the same power because eventually they’ll gain access to it. #CBDC
If you’re progressive, imagine what Trump or DeSantis would do with CBDCs.

If you’re a conservative, imagine what Biden, Harris, or Newsom would do with CBDCs.

It’s not difficult to think these scenarios through. You must be ok with your political enemies having the power.
Government has no right to know what free people spend money on and who they associate with on a daily basis. Such invasion of privacy should require a warrant. With CBDCs, everything will be tracked. And if you think govt can be trusted, you haven’t been paying attention.

Lots of moving parts in this thread but I hope people will find it useful in understanding the #4IR, or Fourth Industrial Revolution.
Israel is at the nexus. Everything from #Covid, to the war in #Ukraine, to infrastructural sabotage like the #Nordstream act as delivery systems.
Most people understand there is more going on than what the #Zionist controlled news tells us. Stemming from long before Nixon and Chabad puppet Heinz Kissinger took the US off the gold standard, but that was a pivotal moment in transforming the US into an Israeli vassal state. Image
Just as 9/11 was a false flag pretext to usher in a surveillance state under the Patriot Act, Covid-19 and insidious forms of irregular warfare are being used to facilitate the planned demolition of the United States. And yes, it is indeed (((them))).

I've heard the saying "an ounce of gold would buy you a good suit in the 50's", but I'd never before seen that applied to a Roman toga 2,000 years ago 😂

This article definitely deserves a thread.…

I think a better way to word this would be to say that @JoeBiden is intentionally destroying America, that the Afghanistan withdrawal & the Russian sanctions had predictable results, and that the weaponization of the financial system took off after 9/11 Image

This prediction that a debt default is imminent was also echoed by @realDonaldTrump at his recent @CNN Town Hall event.

1. Zimbabwe's central bank is reportedly set to introduce a gold-backed digital currency #CBDC to function as an accepted means of exchange in the country.

This is also interesting since similar ideas were proposed for Texas only recently too:

👇🏻🧵 Image
2. The move comes as the country's currency, the Zimbabwean dollar (ZWL), has experienced significant depreciation against the US dollar in recent weeks due to volatility.

(Per @Investingcom) Image
@Investingcom 3. In March, the country's yearly inflation rate for consumer prices dropped to a one-year low of 87.6%, which is a decrease from 92% in February.

“The bad news is I’m a central banker and we don’t tend to speak for less than 45 mins. The good news is I’ll be about 25 mins today,” jokes Sir Jon Cunliffe of @bankofengland.

#IFGS #IFGS2023 Image
“As the use of cash has diminished, commercial bank digital money has come to dominate transactions in the UK,” says Sir Jon Cunliffe of @bankofengland. “But we will continue to issue cash as long as there is any demand for it.”

#IFGS #IFGS2023 Image
“Tokenisation and smart contracts offer many benefits,” says Sir Jon Cunliffe of @bankofengland. “This has major implications for us. We’re ultimately responsible for ensuring that each of the monies circulating is robust and uniform.”

[1/🧵] — #DCMA / #Unicoin / #UMU & the future of #Crypto & #CBDC

Let's look through the website and conduct some research before leaping to conclusions. 🧐

🔸 Did the #IMF make any comments regarding #DCMA?
🔸 Will this be the end of #XRP?

Let's find out in this 🧵👇 Source:

5M views for @RobertKennedyJr’s anti-#CBDC tweet👇. #FedNow isn’t a CBDC but all the criticism from different corners is interesting.

A big issue w/ FedNow=banks don’t have enuf cash to handle the higher liquidity demands of 24/7/365 pymts. Banks need to hold *a lot* more cash!
2/ Yest, while on a podcast w/ @CathieDWood, I said out loud for the first time: #FedNow may not actually launch in July. Banks will need *a lot* more liquidity to handle 24/7/365 pymts, & to raise that cash they’d need to sell assets at loss—which wld reveal the solvency problem
3/ And there’s another reason I said that as well: the sudden but inaccurate groundswell of “#FedNow is a #CBDC” criticism. It’s starting to come from multiple “strange political bedfellow” directions. The #FedNow critics are not wrong abt it in two ways tho:

FBI, CIA, NSA, DOD, DOJ, DHS, FDA, CDC are some of the most corrupt organizations ever in US history.

FBI and CIA have been used to weaponize the state. They’re helping the #DeepState and establishment to ward off anything that comes close to revealing or threatening it. Image
There’s no denying the fact that we are all slaves who work, pay our bills, taxes, eat, sleep, go back to work.

Freedom was a privilege. Now safety is your privilege if you follow their rules.

It’s going to get lot worse with #CBDC
