Firstly, don't buy drugs on reddit (or even the clearnet). Secondly, CBD buds aren't legal.

2 things to get off my chest that eat at me most days I come to clear the modque. This is not a post to try and reinstate the rules, it is just some explaining.
edit 1: Apologies for getting heated in the comments of this one, this post is the outlet for the festering rage that increases every time I read about someone being scammed or claiming CBD flower is legal. I'm normally pretty chill, I promise x
edit 2: Adding some Q&A from the comments into the main body. Some of them I've included because they are good points that are a good idea to add, others are to stop others asking the same question.
edit 3: you guys who previously thought CBD flower was legal, and have now changed your stance and agree with what I'm saying, you guys are the real MVPs. Whether you commented or not, you're the real homies fr.

Don't buy drugs on reddit, or on the clearnet.

On average, we hear of one person on this sub being scammed by another redditor (and sometimes a clearnet site) every 2 days. I'd hazard a guess and say most people don't message us about being scammed out of embarrassment (in hindsight). That's a lot of money being wasted, money that (given our average age) we really can't afford to just piss away.
You know it genuinely makes us upset when we see someone scammed for a couple hundred quid. Not because it breaks the rules, not because the sub is at risk, but because someone has lost money they worked for and they are also encouraging the scammer to keep scamming.
So, this is me saying just don't fucking do it. Business conducted without connection to the sub is irrelevant to us, and this post isn't to protect the sub or us. If someone is here vending through PMs there is a 99.99% chance they are a scammer.
Imagine, right, you've got 10LBs of grass in 20 different strains in 3 different forms. You clearly have money through previous sales, and you're set to vend.
Do you, a, frantically PM people through reddit asking you to buy through Wickr. Or, b, setup shop on a market and continue to build rep.
Also, everyone who says they have a firrrrrrrre link (flame emoji x 10) who deals through Wickr you should message they are also a scammer. You will loose your money and your dignity. They will also have your address that you will more than likely be blackmailed with shortly after (which is also a common occurrence).
Every person who's been scammed messages us the same way 'I know it's stupid and I know it was obvious they are a scammer but u/WorthlessPieceOfShit scammed me and here's proof.'.
Hindsight is a bitch, so get some fuckin forsight and don't be a moron.
Also, clearnet websites, don't even touch 'em.
Instagram is like wading through a pool of shit to find a gold plated coin. Yeah the coin is there, but it is neither worth the trouble or time. It can be alluring to those who can't be arsed with learning to use the markets because of how easy it is, and then after the fact will justify why Instagram is better than any other alternative.
Not only that, think of your OPSEC for gods sake.
For those of you who struggle to keep your singular brain cell company who will still go on to piss money into the wind, if you contact us with proof that you have been scammed, there is no repercussion. Don't be afraid, we will only judge you in private ;).

Reddit Plug Comment Q&A

Q) So is there no way of finding a dealer on reddit?
A) Wherever you look, you will always be able to find a source. If you attend your local female only 60+ chrrurch group for long enough you will find a lovely old lady who knows a guy who knows a guy who comes through. All I'm saying is that, as an amateur, you will miss the obvious warning signs of a scammer and with no way to verify legitimacy of a reddit plug (other than PGP) you will fall victim. I say amateur, because those who know what they are doing don't buy through a damn social media platform, unless they know them personally or have an exceptional circumstance.
Q) So where do I find a plug online? You all talk of doing it but don't let up. or What market?
A) Right, this isn't the place for this sort of question, and truth be told there isn't a reliable single outlet for it any more. However, the one and the only search term you need is DNM. With this single acronym, you have the full capacity to go out and research every single aspect of ordering safely online. Where to go, who to buy from, how to keep yourself safe. It's all out there and very easy to do/find. Like seriously. Just do the research, learn the shit, learn how to use bitcoin and tumblers, learn how to use PGP, learn it all (like we all had to) and you'll be up and running in no time.
If you can't work it out, then you really should stick to street dealers. I don't say that patronisingly, I mean that if you can't work it out from there on your own, you will end up getting scammed or getting caught.

CBD Buds Are Illegal

Update: in another one of the usual shite and misleading responses to a petition our favourite home office shed some light on CBD products, too, and it's even more stupid than we thought:
In relation to industrial hemp, the Government has no intention of amending this policy. The Government operates a robust and risk-based licensing system to enable the cultivation of low THC cannabis (industrial hemp) from the non-controlled parts of the cannabis plant (i.e. seeds and fibre/mature stalk). Our policy enables the production of hemp fibre for industrial purposes or the obtaining of seeds which are then pressed for their oil. The cultivation of cannabis plants must be from approved seed types with a THC content not exceeding 0.2%. The ‘0.2%’ reference is used solely to identify varieties which may potentially be cultivated, within the scope of this policy. The current policy is in place to prevent misuse and diversion of the controlled parts of the cannabis plant, and currently, there is a large number of companies successfully operating under this industrial hemp policy.
Home Office
To be honest this contradicts some of the laws quoted below, so it should be taken with a teaspoon of salt, but even so.
End of update
No, it isn't a grey area. NO, CLEAR don't always get it right. Yes, you can get nicked for it. Yes, it is illegal.
Here is a link to the law in question. There are no 2 ways about it, CBD buds are not legal.
Here is another supporting sheet, and whilst it is produced by the government, it doesn't serve as a legal document, moreso advice, so take that with a pinch of salt.
Home Office policy provides that licences may be issued for the cultivation of cannabis plants with a low tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) content for the production of hemp fibre for industrial purposes or the obtaining of seeds which are then pressed for their oil. For both of these uses, licences are granted to enable the use of non-controlled parts of the plant (i.e. seeds and fibre/ mature stalk only). This policy is only applicable where non-controlled parts of the plant are used.
There needs to be a defined commercial end use and the Home Office only issues licences for cultivation of plants from approved seed types with a THC content not exceeding 0.2%. The ‘0.2%’ reference is used solely to identify varieties which may potentially be cultivated, within the scope of this policy, and to differentiate between the fee level is applicable under the Misuse of Drugs (Fees) Regulations 2010. The Hemp (Third Country Imports) Regulations 2002 also require, except in specified circumstances, that hemp from ‘third countries’ be imported under a licence an
Oil, tea, handbags and shampoo can be made from industrial hemp, and the plant that they were made from may contain low levels of THC and contain CBD as long as they are produced by licensed peoples.
Flower, however, is not legal under any circumstance. Theoretically, completely THC and THC-V free flower would be un controlled (legal). But that is impossible by current standards, and doesn't exist (yet). Every CBD heavy plant has atleast trace THC(-V). The bulshit 0.2% rule that ill-informed people and love toting is nothing more than the number that allows a company to grow that plant under license, and for that plant to be grown for industrial use. Nothing else.
Feel free to also brows 2001s misuse of drugs act in which you find nothing contradictory of the above.
So please, for the love of god, stop hounding us and eachother over whether it is legal and why you think it is.
If you can provide me with proof of the contrary, I'd love to see it, and would happily change my stance.

CBD Flower Isn't Legal Comment Q&A

Q) What do you make of this?
Specifically "The law states products ‘derived from’ industrial hemp can be exempt from the MODA if they have been ‘processed’ and contain less than 1mg of THC or CBN."
I always thought that was the loophole or grey area, that it is considered a processed hemp product by way of drying, curing and trimming, but I've not spent all that long looking into it and I'm not at all qualified to comment, I'm certainly not a legal professional.
A) Interesting point, and an article I hadn’t seen before.
Here is the government fact sheet they are referring to, in which it states:
'An “exempt product” means a preparation or other product consisting of one or more component parts, any of which contains a controlled drug, where—
a) the preparation or other product is not designed for administration of the controlled drug to a human being or animal;
b) the controlled drug in any component part is packaged in such a form, or in combination with other active or inert substances in such a manner, that it cannot be recovered by readily applicable means or in a yield which constitutes a risk to health
c) no one component part of the product or preparation contains more than one milligram of the controlled drug or one microgram in the case of lysergide or any other N-alkyl derivative of lysergamide.'
Do you mean to tell me that they prepare the CBD buds half a gram at a time? Not a chance. So that breaks rule b. So CBD if prepared in a quantity above half a gram (at any point if it was in contact with more than half a gram) , even if it is broken down into grams to sell). There will not be a single place that picks half a gram at a time, prepares it and then packages it in half gram quantities only. Thus, still illegal.
And the products are advertised and meant for human consumption. So, still controlled under the laws i originally stated.
Q) But it's legal under EU law, which we abide by, so that's where the grey area is isn't it?
A) CBD flower isn't legal according to the EMCDDA, in fact they don't even distinguish it from high THC weed as far as legality.
The only time Cannabis is Legal under EU law is if prescribed medically, be it THC or CBD strong. Even further, they only allow four brands of either to be prescribed: sativex, marinol, cesamet and bedrocan two of which are fuckin synthetic.
Are you saying that the legality of regular weed is a grey area because is can be prescribed medically by the EU? No. Are you saying that because the EU allow it to be medically prescribed you can appeal in court? I should hope not.
Further than that, the EMCDDA just set out the guidelines, i.e. if the country sees fit they can decide their own drug laws (such as in the case of CBD flower being legal in France and Italy, yet illegal in the UK).
Source 1 , Source 2 straight from the horses mouth.
Q) But it's sold in headshops, so it isn't your fault if you get caught is it?
A) This just isn't true, I don't know how else to put it. Less you show me the 'if I didn't know it was illegal, it's not illegal law lol'.
Just as a side note, why do you think Holland and Barret don't sell the flower, and only sell the oil eh? Cmon now use your noggin. Quite a few CBD shops have been raided too, so the fact that they exist isn't testament to legality in any way.
If you're local corner shop sold ketamine in its sherbert packets, and you knew what you were buying, and it says ketamine on the reciept, you're still getting nicked for having ket on you regardless of whether you can produce a reciept to say you bought it at a shop. Just because the shop gets nicked, doesn't mean you don't.

Sorry For The Rant

Now that these two things are very clear, I can stop getting twisted over people getting scammed and just laugh as the information is here and clear, and I can link this post whenever CBD is being debated.
The majority of you guys are sound, like really sound, and I know most of us would kick it if we met, so don't take it personally. Those who this is aimed at will know lol.

Weekly news review (November 16-22)

Weekly news review (November 16-22)
Hello, everyone! Happy Monday! Let's dive into last week's news highlights ;)
https://preview.redd.it/9aogvhaket041.png?width=1200&format=png&auto=webp&s=1d4bc9b6c06f1864aaa9aa50deb1c251f0d629f4
Earlier on Thursday, the National Assembly's Amendment Subcommittee on Parliamentary Affairs passed a legal amendment to the still-in-development Special Financial Transactions Information Act to force virtual asset exchanges to register with the Financial Services Commission (FSC). Those failing to do so would face up to five years in prison or a fine of up to 50 million won ($42,460).
Under the amendment, aimed to align the industry with international anti-money laundering guidance from FATF, crypto exchanges must also have so-called real name virtual bank accounts – sub accounts for users within an exchange's primary account – to avoid falling foul of the legislation.
Opposition lawmakers had expressed concerns that that exchanges without real-name virtual accounts would be forced to close, bringing further contraction of the domestic cryptocurrency industry.

Someone hacked the official website of the Monero cryptocurrency project and quietly replaced legitimate Linux and Windows binaries available for download with malicious versions designed to steal funds from users' wallets. The latest supply-chain cyberattack was revealed on Monday after a Monero user spotted that the cryptographic hash for binaries he downloaded from the official site didn't match the hashes listed on it.
At this moment, it's unclear how attackers managed to compromise the Monero website and how many users have been affected and lost their digital funds.

Having dropped to one-month lows below $8,000, bitcoin is now eyeing the first test of a key average support, now at $7,714, since April.
The top cryptocurrency by market value fell more than 2.4 percent in the 60 minutes to 08:00 UTC on Thursday to hit a low of $7,875 – a level last seen on Oct. 25, according to Bitstamp data. The drop marked a downside break of a 48-hour narrowing price range seen above $8,000.
Notably, with a slide to levels below $7,900, bitcoin has erased 80 percent of the rally from $7,293 to $10,350 seen in the second half of October.
On a month-to-date basis, the cryptocurrency is now reporting a loss of over 13 percent. Further, the cryptocurrency is trading in the red for the fourth straight week.
The dismal performance contradicts the positive seasonality factor: bitcoin has put on a good show in November in six out of the last eight years. Notably, prices gained for six straight years in November, starting from 2012 to 2017, before falling hard in November 2018.

The United Kingdom Jurisdiction Taskforce of the Lawtech Delivery Panel published a statement concerning the status of cryptocurrencies, distributed ledger technology (DLT) and smart contracts under English and Welsh private law.
U.K. entrepreneur network Tech Nation announced the paper’s publication on Nov. 18. The document attempts to address the legal uncertainties of cryptocurrency and recognizes crypto assets as tradeable property and smart contracts as enforceable agreements under local law.
Lawtech Delivery Panel director Jenifer Swallow noted that the worldwide smart contract market is expected to reach $300 million by 2023 while the World Economic Forum predicts that one-tenth of the global GDP will be stored on a blockchain by 2027. Due to this, she thinks adapting regulations on these new technologies is particularly important.

Institutional investors are aware of the risks that come with allocating a large percentage of their funds to a particular asset or market indices. For one, the downturn of such a market or asset would have a crippling effect on their returns. The same is true for investors that allocate the majority of their portfolio to asset classes that have strong correlations to one another. Hence, adopting a strategy that allows the allocation of funds to different asset classes, with little or no correlation, is the appropriate solution. This is where Bitcoin excels.
While other markets had moderate correlations to one or two traditional asset classes, Bitcoin maintained a very weak correlation to all of the asset classes examined. In other words, Bitcoin could fit nicely into an investment portfolio and boost returns.
VanEck’s study went further to prove Bitcoin’s eligibility as an investment option. This investigation entailed the assessment of the asymmetric return of portfolios allocated to varying percentages of equities, bonds and Bitcoin from January 2012 to July 2019. A portfolio with 58.5% of the fund distributed to equities, 38.5% to bonds and 0.5% to Bitcoin generated returns that surpassed that of a portfolio allocated solely to the S&P 500 by over 150% as of July 2019.

Have anything to say? Do so in the comments section down below!

Note that this link is a summed up version of the following full publication:

��+b� �


Points of Interest for the Introduction
Points will include info that provides social/legal background to the issue. These points may concern either the journey that blockchain/ Bitcoin has been on so far i.e. driving factors, 2008 crash etc, or it may concern the GDPR and what caused the legislation to be implemented. Just take notes as I see relevant from the articles.
Satoshi’s white paper referenced. This will also, most likely, be referenced in my introduction so this is the proper citation – S Nakamoto, ‘Bitcoin: A Peer-to Peer Electronic Cash System’ [2008] https://bitcoin.org/bitcoin.pdf
Could find a quote from Andreas M. Antonopoulos in one of his books with regard to blockchain.
According to International Data Corporation’s Worldwide Semi-annual Blockchain Spending Guide, worldwide spending on blockchain solutions is predicted to reach $11.7 billion in 2022. Citation – IDC, ‘Worldwide Semi-annual Blockchain Spending Guide’ [2018] https://www.idc.com/trackeshowproductinfo.jsp?prod_id=1842
GDPR Citation – Regulation (EU) 2016/679 of the European Parliament and the Council of 27 April 2016 on the protection of natural persons with regard to the processing of personal data and on the free movement of such data, and repealing Directive 95/46/EC (Data Protection Directive)
European Parliament has dictated the importance of GDPR compliance in blockchain system - European Parliament Distributed ledger technologies and blockchains: building trust with disintermediation (3 October 2018) http://www.europarl.europa.eu/doceo/document/TA-8-2018-0373_EN.pdf?redirect
Possibly look for a use case of each type of system (public/ centralised) to include in the intro.
Note that ‘blockchain’ can have many intended definitions. In Anne Rose’s article she defines it at a ‘fundamental’ level as a “distributed ledger based on cryptographic technology”.
European Parliament, Distributed ledger technologies and blockchains: building trust with disintermediation (3 October 2018) http://www.europarl.europa.eu/doceo/document/TA-8-2018-0373_EN.pdf?redirect – the parliament recommended that before general adoption of blockchain across the EU, trust must first be gained by the masses. This will entail education and proactive awareness of the field through training programmes etc. Note this is similar wording to Rose’s article so may need to change if used.
As another note on the definition of blockchain, Finck in her article “Blockchain and the general data protection regulation: Can distributed ledgers be squared with European data protection law”, defines it as Distributed Ledger Technology (DLT). She footnotes this by saying that there are a number of terms that exist, each with an emphasis on a particular aspect of the technology. She states “ given the lack of definitional consensus, the terms are use synonymously. – will need to include something along the same line as this.
NOTE – that in the same article by Finck, the intro includes discussion on BOTH the GDPR and blockchain so will be relevant when making points in the introduction about the background.
Again, in the same article above, Finck elaborates on the GDPRs effect on DLT. The right to data protection is a fundamental right as set out by Article 8(1) of the Charter of Fundamental Rights. Article 8(2) then goes on, personal data 'must be processed fairly for specified purposes and on the basis of the consent of the person concerned or some other legitimate basis laid down by law’. The Charter furthermore provides that everyone has a right to access personal data relating to them, including a right to have such data rectified (Art 8(2)). Article 16 TFEU moreover states that the Parliament and the Council shall lay down rules relating to the protection of individuals with regard to the processing of personal data by Union institutions, bodies, offices and agencies, and by the Member States when carrying out activities that fall within the scope of Union law (Art 16(2) TFEU). Most of this not my own words.
Further, suggests that the GDPR (replacing 1995 Data Protection Directive) has a dual objective; 1) seeks to promote fundamental rights through a high level of rights protection of natural persons and, 2) it pursues an economic aim in seeking to remove the obstacles to personal data flows between the various Member States (Art 1(1) GDPR and Recital 10 GDPR). The GDPR also emphasizes that whereas data protection enjoys the status of a fundamental right it is not an absolute right but must rather be considered in relation to its function in society and be balanced against other fundamental rights in respect of the proportionality principle (Recital 4 GDPR). Again, not my own words.
The structure of a network of nodes can either be centralised (one single central node), decentralised (a relatively small number of central nodes), or distributed (no central nodes). See Cf. Paul Baran, ‘On distributed communications: I. Introduction to distributed communications networks’ (1964) 1 www.rand.org/content/dam/rand/pubs/research_memoranda/2006/RM3420.pdf this link also provides a useful Figure to illustrate how these different networks look.
Before 25 May 2018, the central legal source for data protection at the European Union (EU) level was Directive 95/46/EC (‘Data Protection Directive – DPD’). Divergent ways of implementing the Directive in the EU Member States resulted in different legal standards and therefore different levels of protection (Recital 9 GDPR). The GDPR, which has now replaced the DPD, aims to create ‘a … more coherent data protection framework in the Union, backed by strong enforcement, given the importance of creating the trust that will allow the digital economy to develop across the internal market’ (Recital 7 GDPR) – found at https://poseidon01.ssrn.com/delivery.php?ID=963020092123086109000085120064025073033078047010022006094075126002103117011026115007006058039044111113028125000095120067006102123082069048092107121073092104088006125073013044098103127102072001127114102112085124104001090026091089121102031024083121109117&EXT=pdf

PART 1. Blockchain Technology As A Document Management Tool

PART 1. Blockchain Technology As A Document Management Tool

https://preview.redd.it/fywgs148q8w31.png?width=960&format=png&auto=webp&s=32941846f01ad676aa78a018132b592ddc9eb8fb
According to experts of the International organization for Standardization (ISO), “blockchain and distributed systems technologies are becoming an important new direction in the development of information technologies; they can be used in many industries to solve a wide range of problems. On the basis of these technologies, it is possible to create new solutions with great potential to accelerate business processes and significantly reduce costs, especially in cases where there is a need for reliable and unchangeable documents within the framework of transactions between individuals or organizations, without the involvement of a trusted third party for this purpose.
Interest in blockchain is growing, and almost every day around the world there are numerous new initiatives in the field of blockchain, distributed registries, and smart contracts”.
Membership: Countries in the International Organization for Standardization

Innovative Features And Potential Impact Of Blockchain Solutions

The following innovative features of blockchain solutions and their potential impact can be distinguished.
  • A key innovation in the use of DLT-systems is a new model of trust, which, unlike traditional systems, does not rely on the authority of the organizer of the system and trust in its participants, nor on the rules of a particular jurisdiction and generally does not require the use of trusted third parties, including certification centers and time stamp services. DLT-the system itself tends to become the universal intermediary who arranges direct communication between the parties to the transaction.
A number of states are already using blockchain solutions as an additional tool to ensure trust in electronic data and documents, independent from the state and from any specific commercial organizations. In principle, the mechanism of consensus in the blockchain system can be configured in such a way that all decisions will be made on the principle of direct democracy (with the “weight” of votes of participants, as a rule, differs significantly depending on their computing power, share in the system and/or other factors).
  • The important point is that in a blockchain system built on the type of Bitcoin, there is no official owner and jurisdiction, no operator to whom it would be possible to make demands and claims (which, depending on the circumstances and the tasks to be solved, can be both good and bad).
Such uncertainty may be useful where, for example, barriers to cross-border interaction related to state sovereignty need to be circumvented and the ability of individual states to interfere in the management of the system, to extract information and to impose sanctions. A blockchain solution can be intentionally created as a neutral trusted “stateless “intermediary. In the absence of an official owner and operator, it is difficult for the law enforcement authorities of a particular country to gain access to confidential information relating to the participants of the DLT system.
  • The principal distribution and/or decentralization of blockchain solutions makes them disaster-resistant, as well as resistant to the impact of certain States. Transactions in DLT systems such as Bitcoin are difficult to track or block, and in combination with the anonymity of participants, such systems can be used, for example, to bypass sanctions.
In the context of destructive sanctions activities of a number of countries that interfere with the normal operation of systems such as SWIFT, Visa, and MasterCard, the introduction of DLT-systems may be a measure that stabilizes financial ties between different countries, including conflicting with each other.
  • It follows from General considerations that solutions based on blockchain technologies and distributed registries can be very effective as a tool to support initially decentralized and not centrally controlled activities and processes. Conversely, traditional solutions are expected to continue to be more effective where activities are centralized or centrally controlled.
The analysis of available materials shows that innovators pay surprisingly little attention to distributed activities so far, all the while trying to replace successfully working traditional solutions with distributed ones in areas where the use of blockchain (under equal conditions) does not promise any special advantages.
  • It seems that the future of blockchain technology and distributed registries are likely to be associated not with “pure” blockchains, but with hybrid solutions that combine strengths and compensate for the weaknesses of traditional and innovative technologies.
As for the legal problems, the solution of which can most determine the further fate of the blockchain (primarily the issue of compliance with the legislation on the protection of personal data of different jurisdictions), such problems can be most easily solved in the case when decisions based on distributed registers are created or accredited by the state, and the rules for processing the same personal data can be established by special laws — as is done in Russia for the main state registers, registers, and cadastres.
Because the technology of the blockchain and distributed registries are very expensive from the point of view of computing and consumption of energy and — in the case of public blockchains will be greater legal uncertainty, their use is not very promising where traditional coping system. In the vast majority of cases, ostensibly indicating the advantages of blockchain, traditional systems are quite capable of reaching a much higher level of efficiency, provided that the existing business processes and the legislative and regulatory requirements for them are similarly revised.
The main driving force for the introduction of DLT technologies so far is the circumvention of existing, sometimes inconsistent, outdated and/or burdensome national and regional regulatory mechanisms and the creation of non-state-controlled transactional systems that support, inter alia, cross-border activities. At the same time, it is quite possible that States, for one reason or another, would prefer (at least for a while) not to get involved in the fight against DLT systems, but also not to revise existing norms, to close their eyes to the fact that the new technology bypasses these norms. It may be recalled that this approach has been and continues to be used in the implementation of, for example, informants and a variety of electronic payment systems that allow certain transactions to be carried out in a simplified manner.
Given the numerous legal problems, it can be assumed that blockchain technology and distributed registries are most likely to develop “under the wing” of the state — within the framework of state or state-accredited systems, the activities of which (including the very difficult issue of personal data protection) can be regulated by special legislation.

Legal Problems

From the point of view of the law, DLT systems are just a subspecies of information systems and business tools. The use of blockchain technologies does not exempt stakeholders from the need to comply with all relevant legislative and regulatory requirements. While the law is also likely to change in order to remove obstacles to the introduction of innovative technologies, these changes will be gradual and long-lasting. In the meantime, blockchain solutions will have to fit into the existing legal system, as well as interact with traditional (paper and electronic) systems used for the needs of public administration and business — for example, with centralized state registers, registers, and cadastres, with systems such as MADO and SMEV, etc.
Legal security of the blockchain system can be ensured if its development, implementation, operation and decommissioning are carried out in such a way that over time, despite changes in legal, technological or social conditions, the following requirements are met:
  • Documents that are stored (or managed through) the blockchain system must retain their business or legal value as long as necessary.
  • Interaction with courts and regulators in all jurisdictions (especially in situations where courts require documents and information or require them to be removed, modified or blocked) should not cause catastrophic consequences for the system (for example, because of a violation of the underlying principle of invariance of records).
  • It should be possible (technical and legal) to submit certain documents to the court or regulator (it should be determined who and how will certify them).
  • The authenticity, integrity, usability, and confidentiality of both the system and the documents stored therein should be ensured in a manner that can be demonstrated to the regulator and the court.
  • Comply with the existing legislative and regulatory requirements for the period of storage, protection of personal data.
  • It should be clear who is responsible for the correct functioning of the system and who compensates for the damage.
  • Operators (or a community of stakeholders) monitor legislative and regulatory changes and take appropriate action.
  • Efforts are being made to solve the problem of ensuring the long-term safety of information in the blockchain.

Experience In The Use Of The Blockchain In Document Management And Archiving

To date, a number of countries have gained experience in the real use of blockchain solutions in document management and archival business. Also within the framework of a number of international research projects, theoretical studies are conducted, as well as practical experience is studied and analyzed. In terms of the few actual practices, Estonia and Georgia are the most illustrative.
In recent years, a number of blockchain studies of archival and documentary orientation have also been carried out.
In Part 2 of the article, we will consider the experience of using blockchain technologies as a document management tool in some countries: Estonia, Georgia, Canada, and the UK.

What A Day: D'oh Biden by Brian Beutler, Priyanka Aribindi & Crooked Media (06/19/19)

"I was talking about farting"—Presidential candidate/world’s most awkward person John Hickenlooper

Bidenfreude

Joe Biden told an audience of donors in New York City that his tax policies wouldn’t “fundamentally change” things, including their quality of life, and waxed nostalgic about his working relationships with segregationists when he was a young senator. Guuuulp.
It has not gone over well! Here’s the full rundown.
Biden has been campaigning on his ability to reach consensus with Republicans. As evidence of this, he cited his relationships with now-deceased Sens. James Eastland (D-MS) and Herman Talmadge (D-GA). Biden said Eastland “never called me ‘boy,’ he always called me ‘son,’” and called Talmadge “one of the meanest guys I ever knew,” but added, “at least there was some civility. We got things done.”
Some problems with this!
Several Democratic presidential candidates have condemned Biden’s comments, including Kamala Harris, Cory Booker, Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren, Beto O’Rourke, and Bill de Blasio.
Biden went on to assure his donors that they won’t assume much financial risk by supporting him. “No one’s standard of living will change, nothing would fundamentally change,” he said. But, “when we have income inequality as large as we have in the United States today, it brews and ferments political discord and basic revolution.”
Some problems with this!
There unfortunately aren’t many generous ways to interpret these comments. They have raised concerns across the party about what kind of nominee and president Biden would be, and so far he hasn’t sought to explain himself or walk the comments back. The good news: he’ll almost certainly face questions about them at next week’s debate. popcorn-eating.gif

Under the Radar

The number of refugees—people who’ve been forced to flee violence or persecution—has reached an all-time high of nearly 71 million people worldwide, and includes an estimated 13.6 million people who became refugees in the last year alone, according to the United Nations. Most of the world’s refugees come from just five countries: Syria, Afghanistan, South Sudan, Myanmar, and Somalia, and the greatest number of refugees live in Turkey, Pakistan, Uganda, Sudan, and Germany, respectively.
While presenting the report, the U.N. high commissioner for refugees criticized “inward looking,” wealthy countries, many of which have sought to close their borders to these displaced peoples. That includes, um, us.

What Else

Trump administration officials have tried to convince Congress that Iran has ties to al Qaeda, suggesting the White House may try to use a post-9/11 war authorization as a legal justification for attacking Iran over Congress’s objections. There’s every reason to be skeptical of the administration’s claims, and House Democrats underscored their skepticism by voting to repeal that authorization.
At a House subcommittee hearing on reparations, the writer Ta-Nehisi Coates called on Congress to “reject fair-weather patriotism, to say that a nation is both its credits and its debits,” and to create a commission to study ways the U.S. government can make amends for slavery and its legacy. Coates also rebutted Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, who expressed his opposition to reparations on Capitol Hill this Tuesday.
President Trump’s former Communications Director Hope Hicks stonewalled Democrats during a closed-door interview with the House Judiciary Committee on Tuesday because White House lawyers barred her from answering any questions about her time in the White House. Hey Democrats: instead of hearings nobody can watch with witnesses you won’t force to testify, have you considered the opposite?
Speaking of which, House Democrats may have finally run out of patience with former Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s reluctance to testify, but they still haven’t subpoenaed him. Reminder, again: Republicans hauled former FBI Director Jim Comey up to the Hill within two days of his decision to close the Hillary Clinton email investigation. And you might have noticed Republicans are pretty good at this “winning elections” thing.
The Federal Reserve left interest rates unchanged today, resisting extraordinary and improper pressure from President Trump, who has suggested he might demote Fed Chair Jerome Powell, even though he does not have the legal authority to do so.
International prosecutors indicted three men with ties to Russian intelligence and implicated a senior aide to Vladimir Putin for shooting a missile at Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 over Ukraine in 2014, killing all 298 people on board.
The British research submarine Boaty McBoatface (this is what happens when you let the internet name things) discovered a significant link between Antarctic winds and rising sea temperatures. As the winds have grown stronger because of greenhouse gas buildup and the destruction of the ozone layer, they have caused more turbulence in waters, resulting in rising sea temperatures and sea levels. Not bad, Boaty. But, you know, bad in every other way.
Trans author, activist, and television producer Janet Mock signed a multimillion dollar deal with Netflix to write, direct, and executive produce projects that tell stories about underrepresented people. She is the first out trans woman of color to score a deal like this with a major studio.

Did You See That Thing?

Facebook confirmed this week that it has spent the past year working with 27 nonprofit, tech, and finance partners to create a cryptocurrency called “Libra.” Despite its classification as a cryptocurrency, Libra would be very different than Bitcoin. Facebook imagines it as a “new global currency standard” that’s stable, guaranteed by tangible assets, and part of a larger program that will be able to perform all the functions of a traditional bank (think accounts, loans, ATMs, etc.).
Facebook claims it wants to offer the service to benefit the developing world, and its 1.7 billion adults who don’t have access to banking. This, however, is the same logic it used to promote its plan to offer free internet around the world—a plan that came under fire for attempting to make developing countries dependent on Facebook for access to the internet. On top of that, Facebook’s laundry list of privacy scandals, the rampant misinformation on its platform, and the way it’s been used to subvert elections have naturally made people skeptical that the company should be entrusted with vulnerable people’s money. OTOH maybe we should just blindly trust Zuck again for the 40,000th time.

Is That Hope I Feel?

New York lawmakers have agreed to one of the most ambitious climate plans in the world. The legislation, called the “Climate Leadership and Community Protection Act,” calls for the state to eliminate almost all greenhouse gas emissions with the goal of making the state's economy carbon-free by 2050. Currently, New York sources only 60 percent of its electricity from carbon-free sources.

UK Crypto Regulation Is Changing, Recognition Looming at Long Last

UK Crypto Regulation Is Changing, Recognition Looming at Long Last
https://preview.redd.it/r03lp3ztgcg31.jpg?width=2000&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=9e373dc7eb48f48e0f0b41997b504c1104730e6b
The United Kingdom has long been a financial mecca. Ever since the Big Bang and the arrival of Thatcherism in the ‘80s, Britain has cultivated a finance-friendly environment revolving around the city of London, with deregulation inviting a wave of foreign investment and trading activity. However, while it has even been suggested that London will overtake San Francisco as the fintechunicorn capital of the world, the U.K. has been less welcoming of crypto than it has of traditional finance.
As industry bodies like CryptoUK as well as other commentators have complained, the lack of regulatory clarity and the presence of suspicion toward cryptocurrency has been holding back the U.K.'s crypto industry. However, the situation has slowly begun to change in recent months, with the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) updating its guidelines on cryptocurrencies, and with a series of consultations on crypto regulation due to begin toward the end of the year.
While these are only preliminary steps, they will most likely go a long way in establishing the kind of standardized, rule-bound environment that will provide investors and the general public with the confidence that crypto is safe.

Cryptocurrency and the U.K.

At the moment, the U.K. probably sits somewhere between the middle and upper ranges of the international leaderboard for cryptocurrency regulations. It hasn't produced any specific crypto-focused legislation as of yet, but it nonetheless has taken a fairly lenient approach to crypto, despite most officials having nothing but bad things to say about Bitcoin (BTC) and other digital currencies. Most obviously, it hasn't banned crypto in general or any kinds of coins/tokens (e.g., privacy coins) in particular, while it also doesn't apply any existing financial laws too stringently to cryptocurrencies.
Related: Differences Between Tokens, Coins and Virtual Currencies, Explained
For the most part, the U.K.’s government, the Bank of England and other institutions haven't seen it fit to come down heavily on crypto simply because none of them — at least, not until recently — have really believed that the industry has been big enough to warrant dedicated measures. For instance, Bank of England Governor Mark Carney declared in March 2018 that the market for cryptocurrencies isn't a threat to U.K. financial stability:
"At present, in my view, crypto-assets do not appear to pose material risks to financial stability. Looking ahead, financial stability risks could rise if retail participation significantly increased or linkages with the formal financial sector grew without material improvements in market integrity, anti-money laundering standards and cyber defenses.”
And just as British authorities and lawmakers haven't been particularly scared by the rise of crypto, the government and Her Majesty's Revenue and Customs (i.e., the British equivalent of the IRS) have been comfortable taxing the proceeds of cryptocurrency trading and crypto-related business according to the current tax regime.
For businesses, for example, income tax is chargeable to the profits and losses that arise from transactions involving cryptocurrencies, while the U.K. also charges capital gains tax to anyone who makes a profit via crypto trading of over 12,000 British pounds (about $14,500). Added to this, a value-added tax (VAT) is also chargeable if anyone sells goods or services in the U.K. for cryptocurrency.

Gaps and uncertainties

Still, even though the cryptocurrency industry has been able to gain an initial foothold in the U.K. within the present legislative environment, industry groups and figures believe that specific crypto-focused regulation needs to be introduced, in order to provide greater clarity and support for anyone operating an exchange in the U.K. or holding an initial coin offering (ICO). Toward the end of July, CryptoUK wrote an open letter to the newly installed Chancellor of the Exchequer, Sajid Javid, in which the trade body's chairman, Iqbal Gandham, cited three reasons why the U.K.'s crypto industry was "falling behind other countries."
The first of these was the difficulty crypto exchanges and other platforms have encountered in opening bank accounts in the U.K., which derives largely from the fact that many aren't currently licensed by any regulatory body (there are a handful of exceptions, however). Gandham wrote in the letter:
"In our recent survey of crypto businesses, we found that 73% of firms have opened a bank account in another country due to complications with banking in the UK. More than half of those who tried to open an account have been rejected, with half receiving no reason from the bank."
Most significantly for the viability of the U.K.'s cryptocurrency sector, there is also the aforementioned lack of regulatory certainty, given that no specific regulations or laws have been introduced that directly address digital currencies. Gandham continued on:
"Secondly, we need a proportionate, well-designed regulatory regime for crypto assets in the UK to support the sector’s growth. Whilst the UK Government has made positive noises, other countries such as Japan and Switzerland have grasped the initiative more strongly. As the Government seeks to compete on the global stage post-Brexit, we urge you to take the lead in attracting crypto companies to base themselves here in the UK."
Lastly, Gandham ended CryptoUK's letter by urging Javid and the British government simply to be more proactive in nurturing the crypto and blockchain industry. And while Gandham reaffirmed that the industry "needs regulatory certainty to reach its full potential in future," he nonetheless told Cointelegraph that several positive developments have occurred in recent months, beginning with the FCA's July guidance on crypto assets.
In these new guidelines, the financial regulator confirmed that it wouldn't be regulating Bitcoin and Ethereum as assets and securities, although it would be regulating security tokens and some utility tokens as such, since they often confer investor rights comparable to shares and debt instruments. Gandham told Cointelegraph:
"The FCA’s recent update to its guidance on cryptoassets is broadly a step in the right direction. Following last year’s Cryptoassets Taskforce report, CryptoUK called for additional clarity to be added to the FCA’s taxonomy and a more comprehensive explanation of how the existing regulatory perimeter applies. We were pleased to see that the regulator’s updated guidance reflected our call for a separate category to cover tokens which constitute e-money under existing regulation."
Individual members of CryptoUK are also in agreement that the new guidelines are, in general, a welcome step forward. CEO and founder of the U.K.-based CEX.io exchange, Oleksandr Lutskevych, explained to Cointelegraph that industry players were involved in formulating the FCA's latest advice, saying:
"The current guidance implements the experience and knowledge gathered by crypto businesses from the international market over the last few years and represents the position of the major cryptocurrency businesses in the UK. It lays well on top of the existing financial regulations."
Encouragingly, Lutskevych also stated that the FCA was open to suggestions from the industry itself, and that it is listening to figures within it and trying to act on their advice. According to Lutskevych:
“When CEX.IO was consulting the FCA on possible ways to classify digital tokens, our experts proposed putting crypto assets meeting the definition of e-money into a separate category called ‘e-money tokens’ and placing them in the regulatory perimeter. We highlighted this in our submissions to the FCA and in consultations on crypto assets. We are delighted that the latest version of the guidance reflects our recommendation in full.”

More work ahead

Still, as with CryptoUK as a whole, CEX.io believes that more work needs to be done to improve the regulatory situation for cryptocurrency businesses. Because even with the new guidance, the environment is still confused and complicated for exchanges, platforms and other related businesses, with Lutskevych suggesting that the industry has been neglected in the understandable push to protect consumers:
"To us, 'fair' regulation protects customers and clears obstacles to crypto businesses who proactively cooperate with regulators and obey the rules. So far, the FCA has done a great job protecting customers. We are expecting the next steps to help businesses.”
Lutskevych also argues that some areas of the cryptocurrency industry are being neglected by recent advances, particularly those areas that relate to token sales and ICOs:
"While security and e-money tokens and the operators that deal with them can now play according to known rules provided by the MiFID (Market and Financial Instruments Directive) and EMD (e-money directive), there are components of the industry for which regulation must be rethought from the ground up. For example, we think it would be bad practice to apply crowdfunding regulations to ICOs."
But while the U.K. cryptocurrency industry is still being hobbled by an absence of supportive legislation and/or regulation, there is general agreement that, even beyond the latest FCA guidelines, things would appear to be slowly improving. The European Union and its member states will begin enforcing the fifth Anti‑Money Laundering Directive beginning in January 2020. While it's likely that the U.K. won't be a member of the EU by this time, it will still abide by the directive, with exchanges and other crypto-processing firms being required to register with the FCA and submit suspicious activity reports. The directive would introduce regulations for crypto wallet and exchange firms, forcing them to register with their local authorities.
This would go a long way in helping U.K.-based exchanges apply for bank accounts. At the same time, Gandham points out that several consultations on cryptocurrencies are due to take place in the U.K. toward the end of this year, which could ultimately also make the situation for crypto-related businesses considerably easier. Gandham added:
"This will determine the outlines of future crypto regulation and is the opportunity to ensure this is done in a way which is proportionate, fair and future-proofed. We would expect to see this lead to a Regulated Activity Order to specify cryptoassets as a new regulated activity, introduced through secondary legislation."

Recognition

For the crypto industry, those planned consultations cannot come soon enough. It's hard to say how such consultations — such asone regarding a ban on the retail sale of crypto derivatives — will pan out, but given the emergence of Facebook's Libra, it's likely that U.K. authorities will now proceed with extra impetus and resolve. Gandham hopes regulations come soon so that the U.K. would not lag behind the rest:
"The launch of business models with the scale and ambition of Libra illustrates why it is so important for jurisdictions like the UK to get crypto regulation right now, to create the right environment for encouraging innovation and protecting consumers, rather than attempting to regulate later in a retroactive way."
Likewise, Lutskevych agrees that the entry of massive corporations like Facebook into the crypto industry has convinced U.K. regulators that crypto is not only big, but will get bigger with every passing month and year. According to Lutskevych:
"If launched, Libra would have enormous implications on global finance, and local governments cannot ignore this. As a result, regulators at all levels are likely to adopt more specific rules on digital assets for organizations like Facebook. For example, the US already reviews a proposal to ban big tech companies from issuing digital money."
Related: Reasons Why US Government Won’t Ban Libra Cryptocurrency
Taken together, such developments indicate that the days of crypto being largely unregulated in the U.K. are severely numbered. To take another example, Her Majesty's Revenue and Customs recently began requiring crypto exchanges operating in the U.K. to provide it with user data so that it could crack down on potential cases of tax evasion involving cryptocurrencies.
If nothing else, this underlines how the British government has begun recognizing crypto as a significant and substantial presence in the U.K.'s financial landscape, one that could, at the very least, make a difference to the nation's tax receipts. And assuming that the cryptocurrency industry continues its steady rise to mainstream prominence, it's only a matter of time before crypto in the U.K. receives the regulation it has long demanded.

UK’s Tax Authority Requests User Data From Crypto Exchanges: Report

UK’s Tax Authority Requests User Data From Crypto Exchanges: Report
https://preview.redd.it/quxyhpyioze31.jpg?width=2000&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=0dea28f2ca47039fa33a8ab3d654493d8fe3cd93
The United Kingdom’s tax, payments and customs authority Her Majesty’s Revenue & Customs (HMRC) has reportedly requested that digital currency exchanges provide it with information about customers’ names and transactions aiming to identify cases of tax evasion.

Crypto exchanges come under fire

According to fintech-focused media outlet Coindesk, industry sources said that the agency has sent letters to at least three crypto exchanges in the U.K., including Coinbase, eToro, and CEX.io, requesting that they provide lists of users and transaction data.
HMRC is reportedly aiming to cooperate with crypto exchanges in a bid to identify individuals who evade taxes. According to the cited sources, the agency will probably only go back two or three years:
“If they [HMRC] do only go back two or three years, I think the interesting thing here is, that the individuals who went into crypto very early on in 2012-13 will not be affected. The ones who probably made the largest gains won’t be affected, it will be the people who came in around the time crypto peaked.”
HMRC reportedly confirmed that such requests are within the scope of its competence, specifically claiming:
“These exchanges can retain information on their clients and the transactions that they have completed. These transactions may result in potential tax charges and HMRC has the power to issue notices requiring exchanges to provide this information.”
Last December, HMRC published its first detailed tax legislation for private cryptocurrencyholders following a lengthy consultation period. Specifically, it demands that individuals paid either Capital Gains Tax or Income Tax depending on the type of cryptocurrency transactions they are involved in.

Matter of international significance

HMRC’s move echoes the United States Internal Revenue Service’s, when it sent letters to 10,000 crypto investors, asking some to amend their tax filings, while compelling others to pay back taxes and/or interest and penalties. The revenue service states that the letters should be delivered by the end of August.
Cointelegraph reported that beginning Aug. 1, Brazil citizens are obligated to report on their crypto transactions with the country’s tax authority, the Department of Federal Revenue. The measure applies to individuals, companies and brokerages, and includes all kinds of crypto-related activities, including buying and selling, as well as donations, barters, deposits, and withdrawals etc.

Temtum project

Temtum project
Hello my fellow crypto lovers, today i have came up with a new interesting and reliable project as usually known as Temtum, in this i would like you to look into it and you will be amazed with what you will get and understand from this platform but before going forward i would like you to watch a brief and self explanatory video about how this project is being operated.

bounty campaign is live!!
Temtum is a successful quantum-agreeable, amazingly expedient, non-asset concentrated and earth lovely charge coin (the utilization of the abbreviation 'TEM'), and to traditional fiat money (specialists discovered cash). It might be utilized on an independent premise wallet-to-wallet, and furthermore can be covered into value frameworks global, filling in as a value stage for every client and organizations.
Temtum has embarked to cure every single characteristic issue stood up to by methods for the utilization of now not just many blessing cryptographic forms of money anyway shared blockchain arranges as a whole both now, and in the most mechanically unrivaled of fates, where in pace, versatility, wellbeing and over the top advantageous asset necessities are most relevant and hold to confine selection.
The Temporal Blockchain created through Dragon Infosec, mixed with temtum's dynamic Consensus Algorithms and AI controlled Performance Integrity Protocol, disposes of system resistance, widely improves network effectiveness and utilizations a supply of moderate for quantum sway arbitrariness. The outcome is a speedy quantum quiet, naturally charming and similarly adaptable rate coin that has been formed to each consolidate into current
value frameworks and supply as an independent digital currency, allowing even
the most under resourced individuals to advantage from moment, feeless exchanges, paying little mind to whom or in which they might be inside the worldwide - TEM.
Our Sight.
It shows the top notch openings that should this point scarcely been addressed.
For cryptographic forms of money to flourish, blockchain now needs to make the consequent stride in its advancement.
Also, that is wherein temtum is accessible in. Temtum can help calm a totally apportioned, decentralized and vote based predetermination for fiscal exchanges.
It is a future that doesn't crush the environment. A future for obviously everyone, anyplace they live in the worldwide, in which the advantages of cryptographic forms of money are accessible and helpful for all.
We have not handiest seen this awe inspiring predetermination, we have planned the time, assembled it, tried it and mapped out how it'll be connected in view of the handiest exchange.
Temtum's aspiration is to be tons in excess of a cryptographic money that for all intents and purposes preferences examiners and that is least difficult definitively used by tech-focused blockchain organizations – it has a fundamental rationale empowered with the guide of the most extreme popular and powerful blockchain age accessible in the commercial center: Temporal Blockchain progressed and ensured with the guide of method for Dragon Infosec.
Temtum expands on the significant chances of blockchain innovation and beats some of the current impediments stood up to by means of front line shared systems, which implies that they have just been received in a restricted manner.
Advantages
Our coordination adaptation is a pioneer inside the cryptographic money around the world, taking into account that, in evaluation to phenomenal digital currencies, temtum is in effect especially intended to exist together straightforwardly with various fiat abroad money, on the off chance that you need to get the most ideal charge of appropriation.
Guide
first Stage
To screen the specialized capacities of the temtum network – and what a small number of assets a hub is needed so as to partake in the blockchain – we sent custom code at the top unit (HU) of a BMW i8 as a piece of a versatility focused mission. This enabled the car to work as a thoroughly working hub, equipped for affirming exchanges as the auto changed into pushed. The stacking of the code into the auto did now not have any effect on its usefulness and transformed into equipped for keep running inside the foundation. Indeed, even despite the fact that the registering power inside the i8 is considerably significantly less than traditional workstation structures, it always analyzed the possibility to check 500 TPS.
We remember that is an around the world first wherein a car has had the option to go about in general hub without the prerequisite of more prominent equipment.
Further inclinations of the portability venture have focused on premier territories:
The approach of a work network the utilization of engines as hubs, encouraging hub to-hub correspondence
How this can be covered into the more extensive temtum network.
Two check cars, a BMW 220i, and the hotshot BMW i8 were utilized all through looking at. As inside the past improvement cycle, we didn't include any additional equipment and just the product program programming on the iDrive frameworks have been changed. We found that the BMW 220i, in the meantime as a remarkably a great deal considerably less progressed in expressions of virtual frameworks than the i8, changed into by and by able to do totally take an interest and procure the indistinguishable level of execution as a total hub (equipped for spare the Temporal Blockchain and affirm exchanges while required) as the leader i.
next Stage: Car-to-vehicle
Subsequent to showing that an entrance certificate BMW is totally ready to take an interest inside the temtum arrange as a hub, we additionally accomplished a work organize between autos. This permitted the BMW 220i to have it's close to home portable system association crippled, leaving it without net get right of passage to and as an elective gather data right now from the i8.
Getting certainties from the i8 to the 220i at the present time, in which Temporal and all exchanges are additionally the utilization of cryptography, couldn't blessing a strike vector. The usefulness to talk with cars that don't have a functioning net association will expand the likelihood for more established autos to partake inside the system, while disposing of any cell data costs and diminishing expenses for network investment.
Sideloading our product into the common amusement gadget of the more seasoned model BMW affirmed no presentation debasement to the main impetus. Testing is underneath way to utilize this plan to additional car makers, which fuses a 2018 Renault Megane, as an approach to allow for direct move-stage (i.E. From brand A to mark B) verbal trade.
Mutiple/2 of-a-million BMW vehicles had been enrolled inside the UK from January 2014 to January 2017, with each car more than ready to taking segment in and helping the temtum arrange. With system scale expanding strike costs, support through current versatility framework need to at last quiet temtum past stages seen with current systems, without the requirement for expensive vitality consumption.
In spite of the fact that the natural effect of fuel-controlled autos is of a couple of circumstance, utilizing age that is as of now being used and lessening the heaviness of such systems as Bitcoin on worldwide vitality resources is a positive flow ahead of time than increasingly feasible vehicles start partaking in the temtum arrange.
Use case - In-vehicle pockets
The fate of motoring is advancing as fast as rising enterprises like Blockchain and AI. This opens up huge potential outcomes when every one of them are mixed to decorate wellbeing, execution and standard execution.

Temtum is effectively investigating utilization of Temporal time and temtum as a mechanized value device inside the car venture. In its best shape, a vehicle having its very own wallet opens up circumstances – from ANPR charges on toll streets to pay-in accordance with-mile inclusion; from incar recreation bundles to mixes with conveyance commitments at each business and legislative range.

Here’s a look at the state of state-based altcoin legislation as of May 29, 2018. United States Bitcoin Regulations. On a national level, the Federal Reserve and the Internal Revenue Service have taken the following positions: Bitcoin – and all altcoins, for that matter – are not currency, but a taxable commodity akin to stocks.
