1/ In light of today's second political trilogue, we are sharing our position on #AMLR. We discuss our concerns & recommendations to strike the right balance between tackling financial crimes & fostering innovation in the #blockchain & #crypto industries. Image
2/ 🟣 We highlight the issue of double scoping of #CASPs as both financial institutions & a standalone category, potentially leading to legal confusion. We ask legislators to revert back to the EC's initial proposal for defining obliged entities under #AMLR.
3/ 🟣 We address the inclusion of #NFTs services as obliged persons, Metaverse, #DAOs & #DeFi arrangements. We urge legislators to remove unnecessary references, considering the diverse nature of NFTs & the nascent stage of the Metaverse and DeFi.

Using AI and sensitive information, such as voice or other biometric data?

Keep in mind: “machine learning is not a license to break the law.”

Here's what the FTC is reminding businesses 🧵…

#ArtificialIntelligence #privacy #AI #data
The Federal Trade Commission just released a new blog post that expands on the recent complaints against Amazon & Ring by providing some practical takeaways when it comes to AI tech, including natural language processing, and the collection, storage, & use of biometric data.
🔐 Be mindful of privacy when training and developing an AI tool. The FTC's enforcement authority under Section 5’s unfairness standard looks to both the benefit AND the cost to consumers for AI solutions.

@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.

Our first benchmarks implementing @AleoHQ on @WebGPU are in.

Our first goal is to speed up syncing within the @theLeoWallet .

The follow benchmarks are all run on an M2 Max Macbook Pro within @googlechrome
Checking encrypted UTXO ownership requires two top level operations: EC Point Scalar Multiplication & a Poseidon hash.

We're seeing a 20x+ speedup for multiplication Image
For Poseidon hashes, we're getting 10x+ speedups: Image

When the #EU passed its landmark #GeneralDataProtectionRegulation (#GDPR), it seemed like a #privacy miracle. Despite the most aggressive lobbying Europe had ever seen, 500 million Europeans were now guaranteed a digital private life. Could this really be?

If you'd like an essay-formatted version of this thread to read or share, here's a link to it on, my surveillance-free, ad-free, tracker-free blog:…

Well, yes...and no. Despite flaws (#RightToBeForgotten), the GDPR has strong, well-crafted, badly needed privacy protections. But to get those protections, Europeans need their privacy regulators to enforce the rules.

After 1 year of Monero Tail Emission practice, this monetary policy seems to be well designed and giving good non-inflationary results.
A year ago, and two months after starting Tail Emission in Monero, I published a critical article, about the proposed modification of Bitcoin monetary policy towards Tail Emission. Clearly, for $XMR to be non-inflationary is the right design. Image
My intellectual honesty does not allow me to delete my article.

1/3 How does #MONERO provide me with #privacy?
Monero has privacy technology that combines several protocols such as RingCTs, Stealth Addresses, Bulletproofs and Dandelion++
2/3 Ring Confidential Transactions (RingCTs) is used to obfuscate the sender of a transaction and the amount, while one-time Stealth Addresses are used to hide the recipient's address using a method known as DKSAP.
3/3 Bulletproofs is a protocol that improved RingCTs, reducing the size of transactions, resulting in faster verification times and lower fees.
Dandelion++ was developed to hide the IP address of the sending device.

1/4 In terms of profitability, while BTC took 900 days to reach 37x in its first bull market cycle, #Monero took 1279 days to give a return of 95x.
2/4 This is not a financial advice, it is a utility tip, because it is important to understand that price follows value, and the utility of Monero will become evident over the next few years.
3/4 Although no one can predict exactly what will happen in the future, #Monero may have a high demand for privacy in the coming years. Society is increasingly dependent on digital processes, and governments are using technology to increase surveillance and control over people.

Tackling the #crypto trilemma, #PartisiaBlockchain aims to address scalability, privacy, and interoperability with a dual-layer approach.

Ambitious? Definitely.

Let's take a closer look at the project and its distinctive #tokenomics. @partisiampc

🧵 by @FlorentPorrot

1/15 Image
Offering a dual-layer solution, Partisia features consensus, governance & interoperable Zero-Knowledge & Oracle services.

The 2nd layer is essentially a platform for ZK computations - on-chain, off-chain, inter-chain, bolstering blockchain privacy in a decentralized way.

Decentralized nodes ensure security and integrity. As #web3 leans towards transparency, control over information is paramount.

By harnessing a global network of ZK computation nodes, Partisia enhances privacy and security, opening doors to secret voting, secure aid, etc.

⚠️ A browser extension is always a double-edged sword.

In general, there isn't much to disagree with in what @panosmek has written in this fantastic thread, but here are few additional thoughts:

🧵👇 [1/13]
[2/13] Browser extensions in and of themselves can easily be the source of #exploits.

So, rather than securing your #browser session, increasing your #privacy, or acting as a warning tool before signing transactions, it may turn out to be your worst enemy.
[3/13] — Attack Vectors —

🧐 There are merely two malicious concepts that will be exploited by #hackers to harm you while using #browser extensions:

🔸 Supply-Chain attack
🔸 Man-in-the-middle attack

#DelhiHighCourt to hear today a suit filed by Amitabh Bachchan's granddaughter, #AaradhyaBachchan, seeking directions to @YouTube and government to take down/block access to videos that violate her #privacy and tarnish Bachchan family name.

@SrBachchan @juniorbachchan Image
The suit argues that these videos make a fake claim that Aaradhya is in bad health. One of them even said she has passed away.
The videos further said that Bachchans did not take any steps to provide prompt medical attention to the child.
#AmitabhBachchan #abhishekbachchan
The court has been told that Aaradhya and her family members’ images have been morphed and misused for disseminating false information and generating profits.

Have a great weekend! Below everything you want to know about #ChatGPT. Thank you Vered! I will add my #thread, with some information about #EU's reaction to ChatGPT.
#ChatGPT created by #OpenAI can carry out conversations, write texts on many topics, perform complex tasks: writing code &planning an event. #Italy's privacy watchdog asked to temporarily ban ChatGPT since the information collected & sent to #chatbot is in violation of #GDPR. 1/1
#ChatGPT unlawfully "fed" the personal data of millions of users to process its replies. @GPDP_IT opened an investigation against #OpenAI: the lack of information to users whose data are collected,absence of a legal basis justifying the massive collection/storage of #data 1/2

Today, we @zama_fhe are releasing Concrete 1.0, our open source homomorphic encryption compiler. It can convert python code into FHE, while guaranteeing the exactness of the result. 🧵… #fhe #privacy #ai #cryptography #Python #mlir
Concrete converts Python code into TFHE circuits. TFHE is a homomorphic encryption scheme that support encrypted arithmetics and table lookups, using a new cryptographic operator called “programmable bootstrapping (pbs)”.
Homomorphic table lookups are a big deal, since any multivariate function can be represented as a linear combination of univariate functions (which is just a LUT!). This means we can now compute *any* function in FHE, without approximations: add, mul, div, comparisons, ReLu, …

Ho letto tutto e il contrario di tutto in merito al blocco da parte del #GarantePrivacy dei servizi #OpenAI #ChatGPT qui in #Italia a garanzia della #privacy
Da sottoscrittore pagante del servizio #ChatGPTPlus dopo aver accettato sotto mia responsabilità la #policy sono indignato: trovo lesi i miei #ConsumerRights
Ad ogni modo, per chiunque si trovasse nella mia medesima situazione, posso consigliare, di usare il browser #Opera e il suo servizio #VPN integrato che seppur limitato in velocità, per #ChatGPT è più che sufficiente.

🔒 Understanding Zero Knowledge Proofs: A thread

🤔 Have you ever wondered how you can prove you know something without revealing any information about it? This is where zero-knowledge proofs come into play!

Continue reading👇👇👇 Zero knowledge proofs
1️⃣ Zero-knowledge proofs are a type of #cryptographic protocol that allows you to prove knowledge of something without actually revealing the info itself.

This is done by using complex mathematical #algorithms to check the validity of a claim without learning about its info.
2️⃣ One common use case for zero-knowledge proofs is in password authentication.

Instead of sending your actual #password to a server, which could be intercepted by an attacker, a zero-knowledge proof can be used to prove that you know your password without revealing what it is.

Списання вийшло з-під контролю: Росія зняла зі зберігання Т-54
Команда CIT отримала фотографії потяга, який везе військову техніку з Далекого Сходу. Ми ідентифікували їх як радянські середні танки сімейства Т-54/55: в одному ешелоні були і Т-54, і танки, які могли бути пізніми Т-54 або Т-55 (див. ілюстрацію).
Як стало відомо, нещодавно цей ешелон вирушив з Арсеньєва Приморського краю, де розташована 1295-та центральна база резерву і зберігання танків.
