Finally, the #GoldacreReview is published! (During Parliamentary Easter holidays, mid-ping-pong on the #HealthAndCareBill...)

It's 221 pages - each PDF page is a double page spread - so this could be a lo-o-o-ong [Thread].

Here goes...
First point to note, in the Terms of Reference (p5), is that this is about "access to #NHSdata by #researchers, #commissioners, and #innovators" - i.e. #Planning and #CommercialReUse - so it is directly relevant to the operation of millions of people's #NationalDataOptOuts...

A significant #bond #buying opportunity is approaching.
As bond yields surge, history and #techncial analysis suggest that we should look at bonds for both #capital appreciation and a #risk hedge.…
In Dec 2018, we wrote why Jeff Gundlach was likely incorrect about 6% yields.
“Rates are at levels that historically led to some sort of event either economic, financial, or both, When that occurs, rates will go to 1.5% and closer to Zero.“
We got to 0.5%…
The surge in 2-year #bond #yields is unprecedented. Historically, such a surge in short-term yields coincides with either #recessions or #market events. With yields now 4-std deviations above its 52-week moving average, such has denoted peaks previously.…

Exactly four weeks since war escalated dramatically on Feb 24. This morning, I read every company "current report" (#SEC #EDGAR #8K) filed since that day with #Russia, #Ukraine, or #Belarus mentioned. I'll be sharing observations through the morning, esp. re: #tech or #finance
1/ I am struck by how few companies have disclosed thus far. For example, in prior research, I noted that 140 companies disclosed material #Russian #subsidiaries and #JVs in 2021 via 10-K Exhibit 21:…
2/ There have been, in total, 154 mentions of RU - many of which are simply blanket disclosures of risk related to OPEC+, which includes Russia. And many companies have manufacturing or personnel as disclosed in 10-Ks, even without "material" sub's or JVs

Hey, you! Are you interested in the crypto / DLT markets?

If so, did you know there are red flags that need to be investigated behind the $XRP lawsuit from the @SECGov?

It's called a conspiracy, but there is a lot of physical evidence that is being ignored.

Thread🧵 ⏬ #XRP
@SECGov 1. We did this for the #XRPcommunity because we stand for truth.
We stand for unbiased technology-neutral legislation.
We know $XRP is not a security. The only country in the world that thinks its a security is the USA because of biased officials in power.

See the facts below⏬
@SECGov 2. First of all a big shoutout to all #crypto citizens that are standing up and pointing out the red flags behind some SEC officials.

This thread and visuals are based on facts from @JohnEDeaton1 @CryptoLawUS doc library.

My theory with examples of how it can relate to
First of all, shout out to the writers as this was well written on global DLT @KingsCollegeLon

If you are into global law, regulated DLT, and G20 topics, this is a technical one to review as it has lots of good thoughts.…

The G20 is uniquely placed to implement policies that leverage the benefits of cryptocurrencies, in particular, DLT for faster and more efficient transactions process.

My Theory
#Ripple < #ILP < $XRP pay channels for settlement

This is very technical information for people interested in DLT and banking payment upgrades.

Not for the faint of heart.
Talks about Bank of England synchronized settlement of RTGS

I've seen that before and the common denominator was @Interledger #ILP #fintech #payments #settlement

3rd photo is the Bank of England document I read years ago on the ILP PoC success.

2. This document talks about $XRP and @ashgoblue states PNC hasn't adopted #XRP.

@ashgoblue do they still just use X Current?

If anyone found anything that shows they adopted XRP post in the comments.

Hey Citizens!🌎

I did some research on @Volantetech and put this image together to show you guys some insight into how they can settle payments with Ripplenet / $XRP and other payment rails.

Here's a visual I put together if you guys want to share with your #XRPcommunity how Volante can settle w/ $XRP

Here is one of the documents which lead to my confirmation

If you’re using an alternative #payments method like Neteller to fund your virtual casino account, make sure you transfer no more than that maximum and as soon as you’ve used it all up, you need to stop playing and not be tempted to transfer more #money .… In order to make your gambling budget go farther, choose casino games that are suitable based on what you have to spend. If your weekly or monthly gambling budget is small, don’t pick the high-roller American Roulette tables and risk losing all your money… in one shot or you won’t feel like you satisfied your desire to gamble. Instead, check out the Slot machines, Card Tables, Table Games or other casino games which allow you to wager small amounts so you get to play more before you reach your budget.

I happened to get started in payments & banking, because the technology company that I had founded, went bankrupt. Totally broke. For many years I told people, I decided to move on. That's not the truth. We were as broke as fuck by 2008. By 2010 it was time to packup.
By the time I turned 40 in 2010 (yes, do the math as to how old I am today), I was looking for a place to start anew in. One colleague in @StateBank_Pak gave me the challenge to find an ACH processor (in the US) that would process remittances for #Pakistan.
How hard could that be? Well, it was fucking hard. Every time someone heard the word "Pakistan" the phone went dead, the email communication ceased or I was bluntly told, PK is not a territory they can work with. Fuck that I said. I keep on trying.

Some #casinos do have specific policies regarding their withdrawals, so all players should verify the Terms and Conditions in order to determine how long it will take to receive a #cashout from a casino. Often, alternative #payments methods and credit card return requests… can be processed almost immediately; but requests for wire transfers or checks may take additional time, as the online casino may need to take more steps to verify the identity of the player making the request. At anytime, if a casino suspects fraud,… they can request for additional identification to verify that the cashout is being requested by the account holder especially if it’s the first time that a withdrawal has been made on the account.

What is #XRP? How might it affect #globaleconomics? Let us tell you everything you need to know about XRP at the Feb. 3rd @linqtoinc Learn:
The cross-border #payments we know today are slow, expensive, and opaque. It goes through the 600-year-old correspondent #bankingsystem facilitated by #SWIFT. In short, this takes a while.
#XRPpayments are nearly instant removing #credit and #liquidity #risk from the process, lowering bank costs considerably. The network finds the best price for exchange and liquidity, and customers are no longer locked in, eliminating the settlement risk.

With the #cryptocurrency market collapse, a #CBDC outage, and rumors of the largest #stablecoin project folding, January brought bad news for #digital currencies of all kinds. ⬇️ some takeaways. (1/n)
1. As #crypto prices collapsed, narratives of each coin need to be reevaluated. Fixed supply alone does not make for an inflation hedge. Claiming that a project is "Decentralised" does not make it so. Technological promises remain elusive:… (2/n)
2. A live #CBDCs had an outage. One of the use cases for a retail #CBDC is as a resilient payment rail that can act as a backstop to the payment system in cases where other electronic means of payment fail. Engineering should focus on this aspect:… (3/n)

CBDC's in Cross Border Payments - World Bank

So I read this 46-page document

I found some interesting pieces of information so this thread will dive into some of my thoughts

I also found some errors the @WorldBank needs to fix in regards to $XRP

#XRP $XLM #XRPCommunity #XRPL
First of all, thank you to the writers that created this

There was a lot of great information on CBDC's and possible structures that the infrastructure could be built on.

But I am not going to cover the CBDC stuff in this thread.

#Project #Ubin #Stella #Jasper #R3
Great description for beginners of what Distributed Ledger Technology is.

World bank mentions lack of interoperability but there are two great solutions for that:

2. @Interledger - Interledger Protocol ILP

$COTI Mega Thread....

If you love $Coti or are invested in it, this is all you need to know about your favorite coin.

@COTInetwork $ada $djed #cardano #staycoti #bitcoin #crypto #altcoins #cryptonews #payments #visa #cryptotwitter $ocean $ctsi $egld
1/ Background

It has been long believed that #crypto will significantly alter the payments landscape and several blockchain based tokens have attempted to enter this space but hv met with little success so far considering either the TPS was not high enough or fees were too high
2/ Industry Overview

The online payment industry is currently having over 2 billion users worldwide with an annual transaction volume of over $6.7 trillion and this is only going to increase in coming future. Thus the potential of digital payments providers like $Coti is huge
