The CDC and FDA have really screwed, more than I could have possibly imagined. It’s a long saga of incompetence, arrogance, and neglect.

First, the CDC decided to make their own test kits rather than using those provided by WHO. The tests didn’t work, leading to a huge delay in the start of testing, an incredible shortage.

But worse, they banned other organizations from making their own tests. So there wasn’t even anyone to pick up the slack.

This response is unforgivable, and has cost many lives and financially ruined millions.

The CDC creates bottlenecks by demanding doctors get permission before administering tests, most test requests are being denied, and they’re not allowing many laboratories that are equipped for testing to carry out this testing: labs all over the country have been trying desperately to get approval from the FDA to use their testing facilities for COVID, and are being denied over and over again because they are not certified as a clinical laboratory under regulations established by the centers for medicare and Medicaid services.
Furthermore the FDA is shutting down all kinds of innovation that would make testing pervasive testing available to all Americans.

Many organizations including the Gates foundations started offering home-testing kits that will allow people who fear they may be infected to swab their noses and send the samples back for analysis, which decreases the risk of exposing infected people to others.

Recently, the FDA banned at home testing, forcing startups who had already collected samples to destroy these samples.

The list of appalling behavior goes on, and banning competition, stifling innovation, and delaying emergency approvals has turned what could have been a manageable outbreak into an uncontrollable disaster that is killing people and financially devastating millions.

My only hope is that health care institutions, biotech startups, and non profits continue to innovate and succeed in going around the..

Make no mistake, the new “EARN IT” bill will effectively ban encryption.

We should have seen this coming, as key sponsor of the bill Senator Lindsey Graham said just a few months ago that if Apple, Facebook, and other tech companies don’t put backdoors into their devices “We will do it for you. You’re either the solution or the problem.”

On its surface the bill will save sexually abused children by setting up a commission that could dictate best practices for many different kinds of websites.
But the reality is, the Earn it bill isn’t about stopping child porn.
As the Electronic Frontier Foundations said:
“The bill deals with the very serious issue of child exploitation online, but it offers no meaningful solutions. … Rather, the bill’s authors have shrewdly used defending children as the pretense for an attack on our free speech and security online.”

It would give the government an open ended power to control content of apps, blogs, messaging platforms, basically a huge chunk of the internet. It does this by modifying the Communications Decency Act's Section 230.

Section 230 is the most important law protecting free speech online.  And threatening to take this essential legal protection away from platforms that didn’t comply with their guidelines is a direct attack on internet free speech.

Furthermore, none of the guidelines have actually been written yet. The Bill gives the commission a blank check to write whatever they want, and those behind the bill have made it very clear that they breaking encryption is at the top of that wish list. 

Snowden said "That such a law is even being considered by Congress, is a national disgrace."

Today the people of San Francisco were ordered to shelter in place, New York was essentially shut down, and Italy saw more deaths in a day than the deadliest day in Wuhan.

Currently there are 181,580 confirmed cases of COVID-19 globally, and 7,138 deaths recorded.

For over a month I’ve been seeing people shame those who are taking precautions, and calling their actions “panic”. From what I’ve seen, almost all of those being accused of “feeding the fear propaganda” aren’t running around with their arms in the air screaming, they are simply advocating taking small steps to limit spread. They are encouraging people to be prepared in advance so that they aren’t out last minute with hordes of others stocking up for social distancing.

These actions were called “panic” a month ago, but now those who had shamed others are the ones taking these precautions. And they’re calling the next level of preparedness “panic”.
And if we get through this because enough people practice social distancing, these shamers will say “see, I told you so, it wasn’t that bad after all”.
But these people are freeriders. As a colleague put in, “Being the last person to finally pick up a bucket and start bailing out the boat isn't something to be proud of, nor is admonishing those who are doing the bailing and then patting yourself on the back when you step ashore well rested unlike the rest.”

The most effective way to fight this so that the rest of the world doesn’t end up like Italy is by avoiding other people as much as possible.

There are about 135000 ventilators in the US, and if we predict 55% of Americans catching COVID, 10 million of them will need ventilators, which could mean 3 million on a single day if all these cases are spread out across the rest of the year. Old people and young people are being hospitalized, and there aren’t enough beds for everyone.
http://www.centerforhealthsecurity.org/our-work/events/2018_clade_x_exercise/pdfs/Clade-X-ventilator-availability-fact-sheet...

Today the World Health Organization declared COVID-19 a pandemic, and Trump banned travel between Europe and the USA.

This week a doctor in Italy wrote a chilling post about what it’s like in hospitals there at the moment. Coronavirus moved slowly at first and then suddenly it overwhelmed hospitals in the blink of an eye. There aren’t enough beds. People are treated in the hallways and some people aren’t be treated at all. Doctors in Italy currently have to choose who to treat depending on their chance of survival. Doctors and nurses there no longer have shifts or schedules or departments: it’s just all hands on deck treating corona patient after corona patient. These medical practitioners have been isolated for months, and have been weeks without seeing their families. Many break down from exhaustion, some have died.

Yet despite testimonials like this from medical practitioners all over the world, people still have their heads in the sand and say “it’s no worse than the flu”.
As the Italian doctor said, “tell me which flu virus causes such a rapid tragedy … Let's stop saying it's a bad flu”

The only way to help the situation is to make sure that we slow the spread of the virus to a level where medical facilities can keep up. That means keeping as many people home as possible, The sooner you self-quarantine, the more lives you’ll save.

Some people are upset because their holiday has been ruined, or their workout routine interrupted. But doctors around the world are pleading: “Try to have mercy on that myriad of older people you could exterminate. It is not your fault, I know. It is the fault of those who put it in your head that you are exaggerating. And even this testimony may seem just an exaggeration for those who are far from the epidemic, but please, listen to us, try to leave the house only to indispensable things.”

Should we be freaking out about Coronavirus?
Today in a press conference, Trump said no, everything is fine, live your life as normal, don't change your routine. 

Is this irresponsible advice? 

Coronavirus, (“COVID-19”) is a highly contagious virus that kills about 2% of people. But the most dangerous part about the virus is that the rate of new cases is increasing exponentially across the world with no sign of slowing down.

Until there's a cure or vaccine, we should absolutely be changing our routine to minimize contact with others, to slow the spread of the virus, because it's so contagious. Many companies in San Francisco are already encouraging their employees to work from home if they can, due to an expected outbreak there. Officials say “There’s almost assuredly going to be a significant number of people testing positive” in California, due to a woman being left undiagnosed there with the virus for weeks.

For 80% of people who contract the coronavirus they just have symptoms of a common cold or the flu. Doesn’t seem so bad. But 20% get a more serious infection, and end up in ICU on oxygen support. Older people and those with other ailments are at a higher risk, so most younger people will be fine. But hospitals all over the world are already overburdened.  We can expect this situation to worsen, so this is not a time to get sick with anything, not just Coronavirus.

In this video I talk about the numbers we've seen so far, what coronavirus is, and what we can be doing to protect ourselves.
But the main takeaway: Stay safe, and try to avoid contact with others!

Today Warren Buffett told CNBC that he didn't own Bitcoin or any cryptocurrency... So what happened to the Bitcoin and Tron that Justin Sun gave him at their lunch? Either the Oracle of Omaha wasn't being entirely honest, or he's quite confused, because inbuilt to the 2 Samsung Fold phones gifted to him by Sun are wallets containing crypto.

There were some other strange things mentioned during the interview that I point out. Let's not forget that this man is in fact a Wall Street Shark, so it's probably good not to underestimate him and presume confusion. But then again, given how he was talking about Bitcoin during the interview, maybe there's more confusion there than I realized...

Is BCH going to be the next in a line of coins that die from lack of care? There seems to be a funding crisis, but this isn’t an issue that’s just affecting Bitcoin Cash. We see it across the crypto space and in the open source world at large. In crypto we’ve seen different projects experimenting with all different funding solutions. What can we learn from those that have succeeded and failed?

Many projects just rely on developers donating their time voluntarily. But if you’re just asking a developer to volunteer their time, you’re actually asking them to donate hundreds of thousands of dollars a year. Actual money doesn’t change hands, but the reality is there’s a HUGE opportunity cost for these developers to give their time to a project.

By comparison it has been very beneficial for projects like Zcash to have a founders reward. Zcash community members like Minezcash, remark that the founders reward was absolutely necessary to get Zcash off the ground, but the sunsetting was the best part of it, because it allowed the community to evaluate the project down the track and potentially change direction if needed.
Meanwhile Dash has a successful Dao that is operational and distributes earmarked funds according to community consensus.

Recently a new funding plan was proposed for BCH: the CEO of one of the largest mining pools on Bitcoin Cash released a proposal to use 12.5% of BCH miner rewards to support Bitcoin Cash infrastructure. This would sunset after 6 months, and would go towards critical infrastructure development, and the idea is that this development needs to be done now because they anticipate an upcoming bull market and want to make sure the chain is ready. In order to make sure the whole community does this and there’s no tragedy of the commons, miners will orphan BCH blocks that do not follow the plan.

The plan was received largely with hostility in the West and with support in the East, but it has kickstarted a lot of conversation about alternat..

At Anarchapulco Chris Pacia (lead developer of Open Bazaar) and I had a fireside chat about the current funding crisis in BCH, how to make decentralized projects sustainable, and how different cryptocurrencies are approaching this issue. We look at the experimentation in the space, what we can learn from other coins, and what we can learn from the non-profit and open-source communities.

Justin Sun placed the winning charity bid for a lunch with Warren Buffet: $4.5 MILLION dollars. Every major media outlet in the country was talking about it and about bitcoin, which was an incredible publicity coup. Then a few weeks ago the lunch finally took place, so I sat down for an exclusive interview with Justin Sun at the Satoshi Roundtable to answer my 4.5 million questions:
Did they eat gilded caviar?
Was there juicy gossip?
Does Buffett still think Bitcoin is rat poison squared and a "delusion"?
Was it a buffet with Buffett?

All of these questions were answered, plus I got the low-down on how Buffett really feels about Bitcoin. I also talk about what really happens at the Satoshi Roundtable each year, an event that is often shrouded in mystery but is hands down the best event that I attend each year.

Privacy Tip..

I visited Hong Kong to find out what is actually going on there with the protests. The Hong Kong government says the protests are violent riots. Many media outlets say that the Hong Kong protestors are the most polite in the world. I decided to visit myself, chat to locals about how they feel about the protests, and take a look at the cryptocurrency scene there.

Thank you to cliffc2 who provided a lot of the protest footage.

HUGE thank you to Leo and the Hong Kong Bitcoin Association for their help.

Recently there was a vulnerability related to Zerocoin protocol, which came about after this interview was filmed, so it's helpful to elaborate on its relationship to Zcoin:
Zcoin currently uses the Sigma protocol, developed to improve scalability and remove trusted setup from the original Zerocoin protocol (not to be confused with the Zerocash protocol used in Zcash).

In April 2019, while already in the progress of migrating to Sigma, a cryptographic flaw was found in Zerocoin (https://zcoin.io/further-disclosure-on-zerocoin-vulnerability/) so the Zcash team decided to replace it completely with Sigma, which went live on mainnet in July 2019.

Zcoin is currently is set to release Lelantus, its next gen privacy protocol in 2020. Lelantus builds on the Sigma protocol and improves privacy by removing the need for fixed denominations and also allowing direct anonymous transfers. https://zcoin.io/direct-untraceable-anonymous-lelantus/

Last year Crypto Brekkie and I recorded and filmed an entire crypto album in the space of the week. It was... creative.
My original upload of "Satoshi Baby" accidentally had broken sound (vocals only in left channel) so here it is again.

Please don't unsubscribe. I promise not all of my videos are this cheesy.

Merry Christmas

Listen to album here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jjTWjliv_VA&list=PLt3zZ-N423gVWo682EZzhrgAJYVS1yYde

Lyrics:

Satoshi baby, slip a crypto under the tree for me
Been an awful good girl
Satoshi baby, and send me a green candle tonight
Satoshi baby, a 2018 Lambo too, light blue
I'll wait up for you, dear
Satoshi baby, and bring me a green candle tonight
Think of all the Fud I've missed
Think of all the OGs that I haven't kissed
Next year I could be also good
If you'll check off my Christmas list
Satoshi baby, a bull run too, and make it big, for me
Been an angel all year
Satoshi baby, so give me a green candle tonight
Satoshi honey one thing I really do need, the deed
To a bitcoiner mine
Satoshi baby, and bring me a green candle tonight
Satoshi cutie, fill my bags, here’s a smart contract on a dex
Sign your 'x' on the line
Satoshi cutie, and bring me a green candle tonight
Come and trim my Merkle tree
With profits out of reach of the SEC
I really do believe in you
Let's see if you believe in me
Satoshi baby, forgot to mention one little thing, a private key
I don't mean for a door
Satoshi baby, and send me a green candle tonight
Send me a green candle tonight
Hurry, tonight

The internet is centralized in many ways. DNS is a particularly centralized part of the internet, and we're required to get permission from organizations like ICANN before we're allowed to register certain domains.
How do we take back the internet, and make it permissionless, the way that the internet pioneers in the 90s wanted it to be?
Unstoppable Domains has an idea, and it involves using blockchain technology to decentralize trust.

Caitlin Long is a former member of the Wyoming Blockchain Taskforce who has done tremendous work being a trailblazer for good crypto regulation. Over the past few years Wyoming has turned into a crypto haven, and Caitlin explains why.

Out of the 13 blockchain laws Wyoming has enacted over the past 2 years, one of the most exciting developments is the "Special Purpose Depository Institution" - a 100% reserve bank, that would not require FDIC insurance, would have their own FED Master account, and would allow crypto companies to handle their own wire transfers and not have to rely on other institutions who frequently deny the crypto industry services. More reliable banking relations is a huge win for crypto. But these institutions would also become State Chartered Banks, and there are federal laws that prohibit discrimination against State Chartered Banks in other states. This could potentially override the need for a Bitlicense in order to conduct business in NY for the example.

We will have to see how all of this plays out once people start applying for these licenses, but Wyoming definitely seems to be doing some awesome things for crypto.

On Tuesday, Congress said it intends to pass legislation to regulate encryption if Silicon Valley doesn’t give the government complete access to everyone’s private communications.

Attorney General William P. Barr demanded that no one should have to right to private communications, and that the government should have access to everything.

Senator Lindsey Graham said: “You’re going to find a way to do this, or we’re going to do this for you ... You’re either the solution or you’re the problem.”

WeChat and Facebook Messenger executives responded to the government letter, saying that a “backdoor” would make their users less safe: “The ‘backdoor’ access you are demanding for law enforcement would be a gift to criminals, hackers and repressive regimes, creating a way for them to enter our systems and leaving every person on our platforms more vulnerable to real-life harm."

Also, end-to-end encryption is the only way that we can have private communication online.

The entire tone of a society changes when people know they’re being surveilled. We self-censor. We 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.

Facebook has recently begun a transition to a more privacy-focused platform, with Zuckerberg saying “Privacy gives people the freedom to be themselves and connect more naturally, which is why we build social networks.”

Let's hope they succeed, and the government doesn't get in their way.

Data breaches are getting more common, and passwords are constantly exposed. To make this problem worse, people reuse their passwords across multiple websites, which is a huge danger. The easiest way for hackers to access your accounts is to find a site whose data has been leaked, and then they try using the same password on a bunch of other websites.

Your passwords are only as secure as the sites to which you entrust them. And if any one of those websites gets breached, every single place you’ve used that password or variant thereof is now in danger. That is not a good system.
You should ALWAYS use a unique password everywhere, and a password manager is the best way to get this done, so that you don't have to remember 100 different unique logins.

I go through what to look for in a good password manager, how to create a strong password, and the common mistakes people make.

This week Checkmarx released a video exposing a vulnerability in android cameras that allows hackers to use your camera, record your conversations, and find your location, all without you knowing.

I explain how the hack works, and what you can do about it.

Biggest takeaway:
Always update your apps and your phone's OS!

This is part of my ongoing privacy series inspired by Snowden, to teach you about the vulnerabilities in your devices and give you tools to help you live a modern, privacy-conscious lifestyle.

Here is the full video and report of what the checkmarx team discovered:

If we want to take back our financial power, we need to stop using things like banks and credit cards, and start using cryptocurrency. Private online transactions are difficult, and so people are increasingly using privacy coins. But if you want to use non privacy coins like bitcoin and bitcoin cash, tools like coinjoin are great privacy layer that you should add.

In a previous episode I explained how you can use coinjoin with wasabi wallet for btc and electron cash wallet for bch:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A2Gm5yPFMWY

But unless you’re careful when spending your newly mixed coins, you can undo the privacy that you’ve just created.

The new tool "CashFusion" might make this easier though, and developer Mark Lundeberg walks me through how it works.

It's not enough to just rail against government and companies stealing our data and spying on us: We need to use the tools already around us that are helping to give us back our privacy. Showing our support also encourages other companies to work on solutions in this current surveillance age. CoinFusion will launch soon, and I can't wait to check it out!

“A mobile phone is a tracking device that also makes calls.”

I love my phone, but there are risks to carrying one everywhere, and it’s important we understand them. Hopefully this video helps educate you about some aspects of how your device works, so that you can make smart choices that will give you back some of your privacy.

I look at how WiFi probe requests are used to track you, what Snowden and Bunny Huang’s "Introspection engine" is and how it allows you to monitor signals going in and out of your phone, and I share some important tips for making your devices more secure,.
Big takeaway: turn off your wifi when you’re not using it!
