The fact that one is able to buy/sell #cryptocurrency is because someone mined it in the first place. This is what proof-of-work(#PoW) basically is. There would not be any proof-of-stake or proof-of-authority cryptocurrency models, had PoW not conceptualized in the first place.👇
Banning #mining means banning proof-of-work, which is the fundamental pillar behind generating all #cryptocurrencies. Many gamers in India use their computers to earn some pocket money through mining as well as #NFTgaming. For many, it is how they feed themselves.

Overcoming #EpistemicInjustices in the biomedical study of #ayahuasca: Towards #ethical and sustainable #regulation. New paper for “Cultural context and ethical issues in the therapeutic use of psychedelics” special issue of Transcultural Psychiatry 🧵1/
We (me and non-tweeter 🇧🇷 PhD lawyer Konstantin Gerber) reviewed 4 decades of biomedical research about the sacred and ancient vine of the Amazon, documenting how biomedicine systematically commits a specific kind of injustice: against indigenous people as givers of knowledge. 2/
The powerful concept of epistemic injustice was introduced 15 years ago by Miranda Fricker (University of Oxford) and greatly helped us frame and analyse some past and current trends in ayahuasca research, which is also important to psychedelic science in general. 3/ Image

Germany implements FATF travel rule for crypto and adopts new crypto transfer regulation.

Although there are small improvements compared to the initial draft, this is a perfect example of how regulation in the crypto space should not look like

Since October 1, CASPs (crypto asset service providers, i.e. exchanges, custodians etc.) in Germany have to comply with the new regulation. That means they have to record & exchange information (name, address etc.) about the originator & beneficiary of every transaction.
When transacting with unhosted/non-custodial wallets, they are also asked to collect that information, unless they can assure the traceability of the transaction in some other way.

1/12 A thread on #ANT and how to read #China #PBOC Governor speech on Fintech(#ANT) yesterday. The headline says only FinTech, but Wink Wink, ANT is all over. Get strapped because I will sprinkle some wide guesses and rumors in the end.…
2/12 My quick take on Fintech (Ant) SINS: 1. Monopoly power 2. Winner takes all 3. Payment system seeping into finance, insurance, small loan and asset mgt. 4. FIN must be separated from Tech, Payment from FIN. 5. Data Security 6. Global Coop on Fintech regulation
3/12 Points 3, 4, 5 has been addressed! I'v written on ANT credit scoring JV+ SASAC take stakes in the three private credit scoring companies. And Alipay has been ordered to be separated from financial services, because FinTech is more Finny than Techy!

(1) Watch some of the comments from Sept 14th 2021 where SEC Chair Gary Gensler testifies before lawmakers on the plan to regulate crypto.

You and I need to understand the comments and lack of education coming from regulators.

#crypto #usa #regulation
(2) Gary Gensler repeatedly focuses on "disclosures", protecting the public, making sure human capital is assessed for fair wages, etc.

All of this is a ruse to control organizations and decentralization where two things have changed.

- Capital Allocation
- Risk Allocation
(3) If governments, banks and financial institutions are not providing capital to crypto markets and are not taking risk where #defi takes place of legacy systems, controlling all of this..... Makes. No. Sense.

FACT: Gensler taught course "Blockchain & Money" at @MIT in 2016

⚠️ GROSS COI REVEALED: In an extraordinary and fantastically written investigative report, @theintercept's @rose_n_adams unveils how @UHC co-opted @zackcooperYale's #surprisemedicalbill study, all while #Congress embraced it as "academic" and "unbiased" work to write #SMB law.
1⃣ This lays bare how #UnitedHealth has manipulated #surprisebill "research" to enrich itself at the expense of all #patients and the frontline #medical providers risking their lives over the past few years of #Covid.

2⃣ The study was foundational in the #SMB debate, and...
...Congress was duped. We believe that Congressional #investigations are now warranted by the #House and #Senate #Judiciary Committees. @HouseJudiciary @JudiciaryDems

So what *is* this "Digital Regulation: Driving growth & unlocking innovation" policy paper? Another "strategy"? A white paper for #DPA2022?

If it's about #regulation, then how will @OliverDowden's "unashamedly pro-tech approach" protect people's #rights?…
In his introduction to "#ThePlan", @OliverDowden says he'll "shortly publish a #plan for a pro-growth data regime" 🤔

If he has an ACTUAL plan, or frankly a clue, then why not just #publish the damn thing? Why all the waffle?

Hand-wavy platitudes like these 👇 ain't worth Jack:
Just so we're clear, this "#Plan" is supposed to "start a #conversation" about "#TenTechPriorities" that @DCMS published on a "shorthand stories"(?) page that DOESN'T ONCE MENTION PEOPLE'S #RIGHTS!!…

Does this Government think it can take us for fools?

Let’s talk about the economy.
You agree: “A logical next step.”
Would you mind if I’m blunt?
“Fire away.”
It’s shit.
“The economy?”
“Well, that is blunt.”

You ponder for a moment, then ask, “Is this another of your enemies?”
The economy?
An enemy to humanity and the biological world?
I hope, by the time this thread is complete, you’ll tell me.

We’re talking about the supply-and-demand, producer/consumer, deregulated/lightly-touched, invisibly-handed, limited-resource-distributing, market-based economy that prevails across much of the world.

“And it’s all entirely shit?”
Well, perhaps I need to qualify that.

The ICMR DG and some other experts have argued that phase 1 and phase 2 data is enough for restricted emergency use approvals, and that phase 3 efficacy data is not necessarily required.
Dr T Jacob John also makes an argument in this regard, though also clarifying that there might have been some early safety data from those vaccinated in the phase 3 which is ongoing as well
BUT if we were going to base a regulatory decision on just phase1 and phase2 data, why did we have to wait till 02nd Jan 2021. That data was available a few weeks earlier, and in fact was considered in the 09th December CDSCO SEC meeting. Why not take the decision then itself?
