UK serial Fraudster Michael Watkins pretending he is being harassed to get me taken offline - he is desperate.

He has not been harassed.

Hes done the bogus "tip off" to the @FBI @FBICharlotte

And multiple vexatious reports to UK Police forces.

All in order to intimidate me
Of course it hasn't worked.
In each case I have contacted the relevant Police department and sent them the blog.

I am none of the people he keeps claiming I am - its a new one each week.

Michael Watkins theholistictrader will say im Scott Schink - no idea who he is.
Each Police force needs to do Michael Watkins for perverting the course of justice.

They also need to get a grip and get a case together for the multiple criminal acts he has carried out against me and others over the last 3 years.

They will uncover a trail of fraud.

What started as a health crisis is likely to lead to an economic crisis the likes of which humanity may not have experienced for nearly a century, rivalling the Great Depression.

In the US, 17m unemployment claims in the last 3 weeks, the highest in history, looks like this: Image
Closer to home, I was speaking to @VALRdotcom's accountants who serve hundreds of clients in SA and the CEO said "People don't understand what's coming. March was fine because companies just made payroll. But wait til April, 80% of my clients are going to have difficulty.

Because of the highly increased volatility my way to scalp changed. Most experience this volatility for first time, so I would like to give out some tips and Ideas on how to manage this.

However, I dont know how long this series will be yet.
#BTC #cryptocurrencies #trading
Part [1/?] "Big Wicks, Flash Dumps/Pumps and Orderbook Wipes"

As a scalper you are usually looking for predictable move that you wanna take out a bit of. !!Your are not!! trying to catch whole move from the bottom to the top. When market is free falling, you let it fall!
Part [2/?]

High Volatility means, every single Level you see on 1/15/60 or daily means nothing. If a market is approaching a high timeframe Level without any volatility drop, you know no body respects it, dont fade it.

As a scalper you scalp a move and do not initiate it!

The Bank of England @bankofengland just issued an excellent paper on retail Central Bank Digital Currencies and proposes a new form of money which would enable to make electronic payments using central bank money.

If you just have 1 minute, this is what you need to know:
1. BofE proposes to issue a UK CBDC, a digital pound sterling and allow anyone to hold an electronic form of central bank money - similar to a digital banknote. This would be a risk-free asset as does not involve any counterparty risk to traditional banks.
2. The CBDC would be recorded as a liability on the BofE’s balance sheet (just like bank notes and reserves) and matched with assets held by the BofE.

1/ Why I'm betting on #Chainlink instead of other #cryptocurrencies, reason 1/100: It's the main infrastructure for smart contracts, the data layer. Whats the other main part? A blockchain. Whats the main blockchain platform for smart contracts right now? Ethereum. Will it stay?
2/ I have no idea! Maybe another #blockchain becomes no #1 because #Ethereum won't be able to scale. Maybe PoS won't work. Maybe Solidity is not the fitting language for smart contracts. When I came into the DLT space, my bet was purely on smart contract platforms, mainly ETH.
3/ Now, 3 years later with a ton of knowledge and overview, I stopped betting on a single platform, but rather invest in the data layer of the smart contract systems. I have no idea which platform will be king in 5 or 10 years, but I do know that the leading platform depends on

.@repfranklucas makes the obvious point that one of the issue with people being "underbanked" is lack of institutional trust. He asks Zuck why people who are distrustful of banks would trust FB. Zuck - in contradiction of earlier media statements - basically says people trust FB.
@RepFrankLucas .@RepGregoryMeeks asks Zuckerberg if FB has worked with any minority-development depository institutions, given that he cares about the "unbanked" so much.

Zuckerberg admits he has no idea if FB has done this.

1./ #auspol the vacuous & fanciful premise of the Government's Cash Ban Bill (aka Currency Bill) is that we need to ban cash in order to stamp out some supposedly problematic "Black Market" that is plaguing us and is careening out of control @danieltbar @phenrikand @BCAssetsFund
2./ In all the docs provided tho, Govt shows no evidence whatsoever of this supposed Black Market existing in any form that cannot be managed with the powers Govt already has, let alone any evidence that the Black Market is growing at all. For all we know it might be declining!
3./ The main statistical figure the Government presents as evidence of the urgency of this matter is an ABS 2012 point estimate of the "underground production market" of 1.5% of GDP

1/ The Senate Banking Comm staff reached out last week regarding @Facebook @Libra pursuant to my @ForbesCrypto article. During a conf call they indicated interest in receiving formal testimony from me. Here it is + summary follows 👇:… @DoWithCare
2/ Big takeaway--politicians that weaponize the US banking system (blocking access to disfavored industries/countries) are modern-day Herbert Hoovers bc these barriers block both unlawful & LAWFUL commerce, & these barriers caused the invention of #stablecoins in the first place.
3/ (OK, I didn't actually call them modern-day Herbert Hoovers the testimony, but I digress...) If Congress isn't happy about @facebook @Libra, it can immediately make #stablecoins irrelevant by letting #banks bank the #crypto industry (& I give v specific recommendations here:

1/ 6 PREDICTIONS about what @Facebook's #cryptocurrency means. Grab the popcorn bc I analyzed publicly disclosed info to make 6 predictions, of which 2 will be controversial (#2 and #6). @ForbesCrypto #Libra #bitcoin…
2/ First prediction: @Facebook's #stablecoin will be a positive force in developing countries. Second: @Facebook will pay #interest to users of its #cryptocurrency, which will eventually lead to populist calls to repeal subsidies at the heart of the US banking system.
3/ It's true that #stablecoin issuers generally pocket the float on the assets backing the coins, but I go out on a limb & predict there's no way @Facebook will be able to pocket these big profits w/o sharing them with users. To be clear I haven't seen @Facebook disclose this.
