The news cycle is a confusing space sometimes;

Eg1.
- #ElectricCars are the future for the planet
V's
- Mining #Lithium batteries is destroying parts of Bolivia/Chile/Argentina

2.
- Decentralised #Cryptocurrencies are the future
V's
- Mining #Bitcoin = huge energy consumption
The narrative around everything nowadays is all about #Values

Corporates latch onto every opportunity

Individuals the same (just read some of the stuff on LinkedIn) 🧐

Life & business is essentially a game
#Winning is always key! (Be nice tho)

The rest is Perception=Reality
I'm a #football fan & I see a footy angle in almost everything I read! 🧐

Not sure if these connections stand up, but here's what I saw;

- #Bolivia former President #EvoMorales was ousted in 2019. Evo a #SimonBolivar anti-imperialist styled leader

@ArmitageJim @premnsikka 1/ Some quite astonishing replies from Graeme Biggar (Head, UK National Economic Crime Centre) to extremely focused + knowledgeable questioning from Dame Eagle on the endemic levels of #Fraud & #MoneyLaundering in the UK + links to ...
2/ organised crime. This Treasury select committee session caught the headlines for the infamous “only 1%-3% positive outcomes from ActionFraud reports” but before being cut off by Dame Eagle was Mr Biggar really going to deny that there are often links between organised crime .. Image
3/ + pensions/investment scams?. Mr Biggar would go on to compund this by poopoo’ing reported comments from front line NCA officers who reportedly stated they “believe that targeting corrupt businessmen with expensive QCs + claims of private wealth is a waste of time”. ImageImage

1. Faith is meant for spiritual things.

Faith is misused and abused.

Using faith on earth w/o rigorous testing is damaging that what God gave you to connect you to Him.
2. Think of #Gambling...doesn't the house always win?

What is going through the mind of those who sit at the #SlotMachines?

Whoa!!!!!!! Think of the #Internet.

Shouldn't we #GuardYourHeart?

What of #Hope?

I often think of the #BookOfJob #OldTestament.
3. Are you tossed around by the wind and waves?

Ephesians 4:14
"Then we will no longer be infants, tossed back and forth by the waves, and blown here and there by every wind of teaching and by the cunning and craftiness of people in their deceitful scheming."

Former financial planner Gavin Fineff lost $8 million of his own and other people's money #gambling on racing and sports with three of the big online betting agencies. #abc730 @SteveCannane
Gavin Fineff says it took more than 3 years for @tabcomau to ask him for proof of his income. Instead of being asked if he could afford to bet tens of thousands of dollars a day, he was granted VIP status & offered incentives to gamble even more. His income was c. $130k. #abc730
In 2017 @AUSTRAC fined @tabcomau a record-breaking $45 million for not properly reporting suspicious betting. More than a year later the TAB finally asked Gavin how he could afford to make such massive bets. By then he’d lost close to $4 million. #abc730 #GamblingAddiction

I have been asked how this would work. I welcome you to join me on a journey how #cashless #casino's could operate in 2020. I'll explain it based on the example of "Awesome Casino Vegas" or "ACV" which I made up for this example.

This is the exciting future in a thread... (1/x)
ACV is a #casino in #vegas and needs to go cashless. They choose to issue a stable #token on the #CSCL. $1= 1ACVT. They have their own branded #whitelabel version of the #casinocoin #BrankrollManager. Their customers can purchase #tokens at a cash cage... (2/x)
...or via #debit/#credit (and #crypto 😉) via the wallet. Customers get #KYC'ed on the fly when onboarding during the wallet setup. All transactions can be pinned down to an individual. They know exactly who is who and who did what and when. (3/x)

SFI President David Krakauer introduces our annual board of trustees symposium on New #Complexity #Economics - follow this thread for live coverage of talks by @EricBeinhocker @AKStanger @ole_b_peters @JacksonmMatt @cmoncap & W. Brian Arthur today...
"I think we have to be aware that we're not just discussing financial systems. We are discussing the future of the stability of the planet."

- David Krakauer
on #Complexity #Economics
"What is the #economy? I would argue that it doesn't exist in the physical world. It is a product of our #imagination. It is made out of #ideas. It does have an effect on the physical world. But the imagined order that we have is not succeeding."

ETH vs EOS.

Clear trends.

source: diar.co/volume-3-issue…
Just admit it, it's OK. #gambling
It is rumored EOS stats are inflated. How inflated? I'd like to know. Something a developer could estimate. The Diar report is good nonetheless. Diar has an excellent track record. Disagree with the data? Express so politely, share your analysis. Get triggered and I'll block you.
