Cryptocurrency enthusiasts talk endlessly about anonymity and encryption. These are supposed to be antidotes to state control. The truth is that major payments systems such as VISA and MasterCard are heavily encrypted and all payments systems offer anonymity to the outside world unless you are the target of a criminal investigation or lawsuit.

For that matter, cryptocurrencies are not nearly as anonymous as their advocates imagine. The IRS and SEC have already demanded books and records from major cryptocurrency exchanges. Advanced forensic techniques can identify a cryptocurrency user from a single transaction and use that public key to unravel the entire history of transactions by that party.

So, there’s a lot less there than meets they eye when it comes to anonymity in cryptocurrencies. But, at last there’s a cryptocurrency that’s so anonymous and so encrypted that no one can find any!

As this article shows, the new cryptocurrency called the Petro, sponsored by Venezuela, appears to be nowhere in sight. No users, exchanges or transactions have been reported. That’s not because of superior technology. It’s because the Petro itself is a scam.

Venezuela’s main currency, the bolivar, collapsed into a cloud of 1,000,000% hyperinflation a few months ago. Venezuela has one valuable resource, which is oil.

Nicolas Maduro, the corrupt dictator-President of Venezuela invented the idea of creating a new cryptocurrency, the Petro, that would be backed by Venezuela’s oil exports and would exist side-by-side with the bolivar. This plan conveniently ignores the fact that Venezuela’s oil exports are already pledged several times over to pay for existing debts and that U.S. sanctions make transactions with Venezuela potentially illegal. Beyond that, the technology for the Petro is not even implemented.

This is what happens when a corrupt dictator joins forces with the global crypto scam. It’s just a way to steal hard currency from naïve early adopters. Don’t expect to see the Petro listed on your favorite crypto exchange anytime soon.

IF THE SCIENCE IS NOT ON YOUR SIDE, JUST TRY THREATS

It’s clear that good science does not support the extreme claims of the climate alarmists. Yes, there is such a thing as climate change, but it’s slow, difficult to predict and almost impossible to model because of the complexity of the process. The climate alarmists have grabbed most of the headlines for the past ten

WHY TRUMP WILL WIN REELECTION: NOT POLLS OR PUNDITS; JUST COMMON SENSE

Political analysts use polls, betting odds, historic trends and other inputs to make their (usually wrong) political predictions. We all remember that “experts” said Hillary Clinton would win the presidency in 2016 (they gave her a 92% chance on the morning of the election), and that the UK would vote to “remain” in the EU

KRUGMAN SHOWS HE KNOWS LITTLE ABOUT ECONOMICS AND LESS ABOUT FINANCE

We already knew that Nobel Prize winner Paul Krugman knows almost nothing about economics. Now, we see from this article that he knows nothing about banking either. Krugman claims that the repeal of Glass-Steagall and the actions of banks in general were not the cause of the 2008 financial crisis. The conventional wisdom is that Lehman Brothers,
