Tik Tok and WeChat have just been banned for US users, over privacy and national security concerns.

There seem to be 2 takes on this ban that are equally bad:
Half the people are saying “they SHOULD be banned because they’re Chinese spyware”
The other half are saying “the security risks are overblown."

Let's be clear, these app collect huge swaths of data and are incredibly invasive. But does this mean we should ban them? Why not let users decide?

What are your thoughts?

"The Tor Project was a creation of the state that ended up becoming one of the few effective shields against the state’s surveillance." - Snowden

The Onion Router, or Tor, is a network comprising thousands of servers run by volunteers that protects your privacy by hiding your IP address and activities on the internet. It's an important tool for online privacy and freedom of expression in a digital age.

Not only does it make your searches more private, but it also allows you to access webpages on the dark web that aren’t available to regular browsers. While the dark web is notorious for being a hotbed of illicit/illegal activity, it is also used by whistleblowers, activists or political dissidents to anonymously distribute information. Tor is a great tool for all kinds of people, even everyday people who want to protect their personal data from advertisers and mass surveillance.

The largest darknet marketplace is suspected to have exit scammed with $30 million in crypto after going offline 3 days ago.

Fed Chairman Jerome Powell set to deliver ‘profoundly consequential’ speech during a virtual version of the Fed’s annual Jackson Hole, Wyoming, conference Thursday. Many say that the speech will reveal major inflation changes.

JP Morgan Coin, and Quorum, the blockchain that it's built on, acquired by Ethereum company ConsenSys. ConsenSys will now be supporting Quorum's blockchain efforts.

Yield Farming: Building a DeFi Plane While Flying

Is 2020 the Year of DeFi?
DeFi opens up access to capital like never before. No barriers to entry. No real-world identity. You can take out loans and earn interest, without anyone ever asking your name.

“Yield farming” is its crack cocaine.

C. Edward Kelso and I take a deep dive into the $7 billion world of DeFi:
- $15k for a YFI token??
- What are meme tokens?
- The Rise and Fall of Yam (may it rest in peace, and then rise again as V2 and V3)

A recent report by Chainalysis says almost 1 million bitcoins are owned by hackers, scammers, and dark web buyers. Many media outlets say bitcoin will never become mainstream until it shakes this “dark side” of its reputation permanently.

Is this true though?

Criminals use all kinds of other financial tools, and it doesn't affect their reputation.

Cybercriminals attack Internet of Things devices over 5000 times a month. But your router and connected cameras, which account for 90% of this activity, aren’t having trouble with mainstream acceptance either.

And what is the definition of "mainstream adoption”, because this term seems to be a moving goal post.

I talk about the recent Microstrategy announcement, Grayscale report, and news from the OCC about bitcoin allowed in banking.

The National Cyber Director Act was just passed by Congress as part of the NDAA which will create a "Cyber Czar". It's a disaster for internet privacy and freedom.

The "Cyber Czar" position has an unspecified budget, and a department of at least 75 people who will be unelected bureaucrats that remain in power regardless of who is elected into office, and who will get to determine internet best practices. They will also likely be in charge of enforcing anti-encryption bills like "EARN IT" and "Lawful Access to Encrypted Data Act" should they go through.

Congressman Thomas Massie was the only person who pushed back against the bill. I chat with him about why it's a danger, and should be stopped.

Tell your local representative you are against the NDAA because of the National Cyber Director Act, you're against the EARN IT Bill, and you're against the Authorized Access to Encrypted Data Act.

There are currently 2 bills in Congress that are trying to destroy privacy and freedom of speech on the internet.

The “EARN IT” bill would have internet “best practices” determined by a commission, and the “Lawful access to encrypted data act” would put backdoors in all of your software and devices.

Attorney General Bill Barr says the government should have access to everything, that “companies should not deliberately design their systems to preclude any form of access to content,”
If a company’s system is private and doesn't have a back door, according to these laws they can be required to redesign their system.

The “lawful access to encrypted data act” would create a chilling effect on society. When people know their actions and words are no longer private: They self-censor. They conform and live in fear. A surveilled society is a repressed society, and we are dangerously close to having every part of our lives observed.

Officials like to say surveillance is for the “good of the nation”, but they mean the nation state, ie it helps the people in power keep their power. They don’t mean for the good of the citizens. In fact, weakening the privacy of every citizen makes us all much worse off.

Luckily there are many people fighting this bill, including Crystal Rose, CEO of Sense chat, a private messaging platform.

She shares what is most insidious about this bill, and what she's doing to fight it. If you’d like to help also, reach out to members of Congress to tell them to leave our digital security alone:

Today Twitter was hacked, and thousands of high profile accounts began tweeting a bitcoin scam that amassed over $100k.

What if instead of tweeting a scam, they decided to leak everyone's DMs? People share private things on twitter all the time, like credit card details, home addresses, nude photos.

This hack is just the beginning of what is likely to become a crisis in digital identity management. Time to start using e2ee services for messaging instead. Protect yourself, because these platforms won't.

Saying you don’t mind surveillance because you have nothing to hide is like saying you don’t believe in freedom of speech because you have nothing to say. This was something Snowden said.

The fact is, privacy is fundamental to the fabric of our society, and we should all be concerned when people threaten to take it away.

Strong encryption is one of the most powerful tools we have for protecting our privacy. End-to-end encryption is particularly important.
Currently there are 2 bills in congress in the USA that are trying to make end to end encryption illegal:
There is the EARN IT bill which threatens crucial freedom of speech protections for online publishing platforms unless these platforms abide by “best practices” set forth by a very anti-encryption commission.
And there is the “lawful access to online data” act, which would force back doors into all our encrypted devices and platforms.

We need to stand up and fight against bad encryption laws before the balance of power tips irretrievably away from the individual.

This week China passed a controversial security law for Hong Kong. It's a chilling tool that suppresses political dissent, and may well destroy this international center of trade and what has been China’s freest city.

It is now illegal to wave pro-independence flags, have pro-democracy stickers, or voice your dislike of the Chinese government. Those who do face prison, and possible internment in labor camps or forced rehabilitation programs.

The introduction of the security law effectively ends “one country, two systems” 27 years early, and breaks the terms of the agreement Britain and China made about handing over Hong Kong.

The UK responded that they will offer a path to citizenship for HK people, and many other countries are considering the same.

This video discusses Hong Kong's complicated history with Britain and China, and the significance of the current protests.

The human rights abuses of China are well documented, and losing a bastion of freedom like Hong Kong to their system is devastating. China now has assimilated the city into the mainland.

There are dark days ahead for HK, and it’s tragic to see the light in one of the world’s most vibrant cities be dimmed. But the value of Hong Kong isn't in the roads, or the buildings -- it's in the people. So now the world needs to open their door and let them in.

Huge thank you to the people of Hong Kong who are fighting for their freedom.

I did some at-home genetic engineering, and turned yeast florescent by adding Jellyfish DNA to it. I used a Do-It-At-Home genetic engineering kit from The Odin (www.the-odin.com) and it was super easy and fun!

The process involves “transformation”. It’s where you genetically alter a cell by introducing new DNA through the cell walls. Usually cell walls stop cells mixing with foreign DNA. Transformation works by weakening the cell walls, and this temporary state is called “competence”, and it’s where the cell is for a limited time able to take up exogenous DNA from the environment.

If the cell demonstrates what’s called “uptake” and incorporation of this new genetic material, it’s called “transformation”, and that means I've successfully joined jellyfish with yeast and created fluorescent yeast!

The Odin makes fantastic bio-hacking kits which give people the tools to do all kinds of awesome science experiments at home. Check out my do-it-at-home CRISPR project: https://youtu.be/XLJqDXewAjM

This week a bill was introduced called the “lawful access to encrypted data act.” It would give the government access to your most private communication, and put backdoors in your devices and apps.
Companies must be able to decrypted all data upon request, and if a company’s system doesn’t allow for this decryption, they can be required to redesign their system.

End-to-end encryption enables us to have private, secure communications in an increasingly insecure world. It protects human rights workers, journalists, activists, citizens from hostile governments, governments from hostile foreign agents, domestic abuse sufferers: All levels of society rely on private communications.

But Attorney General Bill Barr says the government should have access to everything. He said “Companies should not deliberately design their systems to preclude any form of access to content.”

The idea that government “can’t catch the bad guys” unless they break our end-to-end-encryption is false.
As Apple said: "Law enforcement today has access to more data -- data which they can use to prevent terrorist attacks, solve crimes and help bring perpetrators to justice -- than ever before in the history of our world. ... We believe it would be wrong to weaken security for hundreds of millions of law-abiding customers so that it will also be weaker for the very few who pose a threat."

Officials like to say surveillance is for the “good of the nation”, but they mean the nation state, ie it helps the people in power keep their power. They don’t mean for the good of the citizens. In fact, weakening the privacy of every citizen makes us all much worse off.

Cointr.ee helps you earn money by making it as easy as possible for people to support your work.
You list all your crypto donation addresses in one place, people can personalize their donations with a message of support, and it links all your websites and social media platforms on one page so people can follow and support you everywhere you are.

It solves 2 problems.

1) Crypto addresses go stale. This means you have to swap out every donation address on every video you’ve ever posted, or risk someone sending money to a stale account. Instead you can post a single Cointr.ee link which contains a list of all your active addresses.

2) People want to be able to personalize their donations with a message of support. For some people, adding this message feature was the different between earning $0 and earning $100s of dollars in a few months.

It’s really easy to use:
Use any coin you want
Use any wallet you want
Cointr.ee doesn’t keep your wallet keys, never touches your funds, and it’s free to use. You don’t even need to set up an account to use it.

Add your Cointr.ee link to your profiles so that people know where they can find you and send you tips!

Many protestors fear they will be tracked and targeted for their involvement in the protests. Our cell phones are portable tracking devices that we carry around with us everywhere, and facial recognition software is incredibly advanced these days. While some people are glad the police can track people, because they want those who have been violent or looting to be apprehended, others are concerned. Protesting is a protected right in America, and peaceful protestors should be allowed to exercise their free speech without fear of retaliation.

We don’t know yet how this will turn out, how many protestors will be apprehended, and how many peaceful protestors will be targeted. One place that has protested police brutality and dealt with surveillance and tracking of protestors is Hong Kong. It is one of the most technologically savvy protests we’ve seen: What can we learn from the surveillance and counter-surveillance measures used there?

Today the SpaceX rocket, Falcon 9, launched 2 Nasa astronauts into space!
It’s the first time in 9 years that astronauts have been launched from American soil and SpaceX is the first private company ever to fly humans to orbit.
But today wasn’t just another launch. It was the first step of a radical new vision: Commercial space travel.
It's human nature to want to discover and explore new things, and today’s leap towards commercial space exploration was an expression of that on an epic scale.

As our lives get further thrust into the digital realm, what we need more than ever is robust digital security to protect the increased activity we’re doing online. Unfortunately we're actually going backwards. Surveillance has become normalized, and people were never given the opportunity to opt in to this increased tracking. This is what Adam Back, Blockstream CEO, said in an interview with me at the Satoshi Roundtable earlier this year.

Unfortunately the internet is not nearly private enough, and not nearly decentralized enough. To help solve this, his company built a Satellite that gives people more privacy for their bitcoin transactions and also helps freedom of speech.

Adam and I discuss how the Satellite works, why it's important, and whether it is possible to take back control of the internet and try to preserve some private space in our digital lives.

Full 1-hr interview with Adam Back available on my "NBTV Members" page.

We’re in the midst of an economic collapse.
By March 20 the markets had fallen over 33% from their highs. A huge amount of money has been printed by the FED. There's been trillions in corporate bailouts. Millions are unemployed.

When the economy crashed in 08, people were angry and wanted financial change. Now the economy has crashed again, people are as angry as ever and looking for change once more. But this crash is different from '08, because now we have cryptocurrency: a choice in money.
What are the implications of this?
Crypto devs Amaury Séchet, Chris, Pacia, Tobias Ruck, and I chat about the economy, the role of cryptocurrency in the current economic climate, and why decentralized tech is more important than ever.

In the last few weeks, yet again a bunch of influencers were kicked off their video platforms. This has led many to search for alternatives where their content and their channels are safe and can’t be deleted. One platform that stands out well above many others is LBRY.com, a truly decentralized, peer-to-peer app that doesn’t rely on a central server to store your data.
I discovered LBRY years ago when I covered the platform in a segment for the Stossel Show about the importance of keeping information free.

I chat to CEO Jeremy Kauffman about how LBRY.com works, and why decentralization is important.

If you’d like to see the extended version of the interview where we talk about the secret algorithm and rating system exposed by “reclaim the new” of a major video platform that is shadow banning certain users and promoting others, please head to the members content at NaomiBrockwell.com/memberships

Hot tip to content creators: setting up an account on LBRY.com takes 2 mins, and it’s a great side-revenue stream.

Did COVID19 come from a lab in Wuhan?
That’s what a new study called “Project Evidence” explores. It examines evidence that the virus may have been present at a biolab in Wuhan, and was introduced into the greater Wuhan population by an infected lab worker or animal.
What the study doesn’t do is attempt to investigate whether the release was intentional. It also doesn’t attempt to provide concrete conclusions. Instead it encourages the reader to make up their own mind, and hopes to bring more awareness to safety protocols in research labs to give us the best chance of avoiding the next outbreak.

Coming from a lab doesn’t necessarily mean engineered in a lab, or that it is a bioweapon. These are extreme claims, and scientist Trevor Bedford who studies viruses provided a great explanation of why this is unlikely.

I go through all the evidence presented in the study about why the virus might have come from a lab, including missing researchers, coverups, a sensitive cable leaked from US diplomats about the Wuhan Institute of Virology, the mysterious lack of bats present at the market and the data that shows that 34% of initial patients weren’t expose to the Huanan Seafood Market in any way.
And the fact that no epidemiological link was found between the first patient and later cases.
The list of strange occurrences goes on. And although the evidence is all circumstantial, it is interesting to consider. I remain curious and skeptical, but there sure are a lot of coincidences here.

What will the future look like post COVID19? Snowden said in an interview this week that right now the system we live under is so stressed that we’re in a position to make not just reformative changes, but revolutionary changes.

Which changes are reasonable to expect and which are wishful thinking? I give my predictions.

Decentralization of the workforce will create a more profound and sweeping change than people realize.

Software and biotech will continue to thrive.

And there will be a tremendous loss of privacy. We’re actually in a precarious position where encryption is threatened, and surveillance tech is taking the front seat. Technology used in the name of contact tracing today will be capabilities that continue to exist for surveillance tomorrow. The intrusion we will allow into our digital lives during this time of crisis will live on long after the crisis has ended. So any policy that demands backdoor access to our devices or data should be categorically shut down. Anonymous tracing is completely feasible, and trying to push for government back doors is irresponsible and will cost lives. The future after COVID may be an exciting decentralized one, or an Orwellian surveillance one. The choice is partly ours, determined by which decisions we allow to be made today.

What about the economy, hygiene, and systematic collapse? I go into my predictions, and would love to know yours. Please write them in the comments!

“The virus will pass, but the decisions we make today … will last” said Edward Snowden in an interview this week.

The long list of bad decisions that led to the current health crisis goes on and on, and as governments around the world scramble to make up for their early mistakes, they’re passing all kinds of policies that have created enormous damage.

There are many heroes who have picked up the slack: those 3d printing face shields, donating computing resources to research facilities, and transforming production plants to make emergency goods.
Tech can be used for tremendous good, but right now as we decide on policies about how to handle this crisis, it’s really important that we remember that tech can also be used for bad. Especially in an atmosphere driven by fear, it’s crucial we remember that “stop gap measures” introduced in emergency situations usually remain in place well after the “emergency” has passed. So we need to be very careful about what kind of a future we’re creating with the measures we take today.

Governments can already track our movements with ease. Knowing this, it’s important that we don’t let a crisis like COVID-19 normalize and legitimize this tracking of citizens. Also we may trust who is using this data now, but someone else will have this data eventually, says Snowden.
“Some other country will have this data eventually. In your country some other president will have this data, and someone will abuse it. … Do we truly believe that after the first wave, the second wave, the 16th wave of the coronavirus is a long-forgotten memory that these capabilities will not be kept? These data sets will not be kept? What is being built is the architecture of oppression.”

Snowden remarked that we are currently at a pivotal moment in time where the system is so stressed that we are in a position to make not just reformative changes to society but revolutionary changes. We can change the structure of the system that controls and influences our liv..
