What are Stable Coins? USDT, TUSD, GUSD, USDC and USDQ
In this article, Slava Mikhalkin talks about USDQ, a fully algorithmic stablecoin that offers reliability and easy collateralization for Bitcoin. Working as a Blockchain Architect with PLATINUM ENGINEERING, Slava collaborates within the +200-employee team to develop bleeding edge solutions in white-label wallets, STOs and IEOs fundraising platforms, and full-cycle business models for crypto projects. A key value proposition, brought by PLATINUM ENGINEERING, is a holistic approach, where a versatile talent pool helps startups build up capabilities in IT, marketing and legal. A unique decentralized stablecoin USDQ features various price stabilization algorithms, an intricate system of incentives for traders and AI-driven predictive analytics module. This novel stablecoin is worth noting while it’s still gathering steam.
Foreword
It's clear that cryptocurrencies are gradually making inroads into the global economy, moving closer to mass adoption. Cryptocurrencies offer a number of advantages - decentralization and trust, lower commissions and disintermediation - that make it easier for users to carry out their daily transactions. Anybody can transfer value around the globe, winning from fast processing time.
In comparison, sending value across borders via legacy financial systems requires lengthy waiting periods and fees, while also making users stuck into highly complex processes. For instance, if a person from Japan wants to send some money to England, the fees can range anywhere from 5% up to 10%, depending on the system being used. In addition, there will be some currency conversion fees. It seems that centralized players, currently enjoying lack of competition, set up fees and commissions just as they wish.
And it's merchants that carry out cross-border transactions that find working with legacy finance institutions most troublesome. They keep losing hefty chunks from their potential profits, just paying out fees to payment processors. This makes businesses hike up their prices, passing these expenses to ordinary consumers. Crypto offers a paradigm shift change, bringing to the table lightning speeds and lower fees. Although cryptocurrencies have been winning more and more attention from merchants worldwide, there's still a number of roadblocks to wider adoption, among which are price volatility, scalability limitations and others.
Volatility is admittedly the biggest hurdle that prevents businesses from using cryptocurrencies more. Bitcoin can experience huge fluctuations in just a matter of hours or even minutes. In addition, major coins like Bitcoin and Ethereum present scalability issues, which results in high processing time. A merchant, who has to handle hundreds of payments on a daily basis, would not be able to conduct their business efficiently if transactions get stuck for days on end. On top of that, it's extremely hard for adopters to convert cryptocurrencies into fiat via the banks and other financial agents they usually work with.
Cryptocurrencies seek to offer solutions to all of these issues.
What is stablecoin?
A stablecoin is a cryptocurrency, whose architecture enables its price to always equal the price of another asset. Most of the stablecoins are pegged to USD. The biggest names in cryptocurrencies are Tether, Gemini Dollar, USDQ, TUSD and others.
How do stablecoins manage to be so stable?
As opposed to other coins that float freely, stable cryptocurrencies require that each unit is backed with a unit of the fiat currency. For instance, Tether (USDT) pegs 1 USDT to 1 USD on the one-to-one basis. In this way, stablecoins are somewhere between cryptocurrencies and regular fiats. Tether is based on its own blockchain that is built on top of Bitcoin, Litecoin and Ethereum systems.
Although Tether is the biggest stablecoin, there's a number of concerns as to its operations. The biggest one is the continuing controversy as to the fiat reserves, which the issuer is supposed to store on the one-to-one ratio to the number of issued Tether units. The company has been saying that the audit will be done in the near future, but just several weeks ago it started to claim that it's not only the cash, but also loans to other companies that can be recorded as fiat reserves. These statements resulted in growing distrust among crypto enthusiasts.
Another project is TrueUSD (TUSD). It also pegs to USD. The difference with Tether is the openness to audits and transparency. The company is open to third-party audits, it publishes the duly verified reports on the fiat reserves it holds. In addition, users enjoy legal protections.
USDC is another stablecoin that was created by the famous cryptocurrency exchange Circle. Just as TUSD, if offers regulatory compliance and transparency. The big problem about all these systems is the fact that they enable authorities to seize users’ funds, which completely negates the very idea of decentralization and anti-censorship, on which crypto is built.
USDQ is different from other stablecoins as it's not backed by the fiat currency, but by Bitcoin and other top-10 cryptocurrencies in the future. This enables the ecosystem to avoid dealing with legacy financial systems. Through the overcollateralization process, USDQ turns highly volatile cryptocurrencies into the USD-pegged USDQ that is perfect for storing value and processing transactions in the external economy without any risk of price changes. The coin is being developed by PLATINUM ENGINEERING with the small community slowly growing around the project.
Why do we need stablecoins?
Stablecoins have advanced as a new iteration on cryptocurrencies, enabling to address such issues as high volatility and interactions with legacy financial systems.
Coins like USDQ make sure that various mechanisms are used in order to stabilize the prices at the USD peg. Traders can easily change their Bitcoins into USDQ and thus prevent the negative impact on unwanted prices changes. Stablecoins are very easy to use, which is a boon for non-techy adopters. Any person from around the world can quickly convert fiats into stablecoins, without any need to think about future price changes and without worrying about potential risks for losing their funds. As a rule, you'll always find various stablecoins on crypto exchanges, enabling traders to quickly move around stables and other cryptos.
As we've spoken above, cross-border payments win most from using the stablecoins. This hybrid species between fiat and crypto will help open up the hidden value in global trade, amounting to trillions of dollars in profits for stakeholders.
USDQ is decentralized stablecoin, which uses algorithms to offer higher stability and reliability. Fully on-chain and monitored by high-speed AI robots, ecosystem offers reliable defences against malicious acts and attacks. First run in line of fiat-pegs, USDQ is brought by PLATINUM ENGINEERING Team, looking to edge together innovative solutions in collateralization, using stabilizing mechanisms and oracles for high-endurance stablecoins. Fully anonymous, USDQ breaks limits out of this legacy world.
PLATINUM ENGINEERING openly shares about its development and vectors for growth, enabling stakeholders to learn about cutting-edge solutions in the blockchains/crypto domain. PLATINUM ENGINEERING has already helped over 150 crypto projects to grow through emerging blockchain economy of the future. Businesses would be amazed at new capabilities they can obtain through tokenizing their business models, automating routine business processes and drawing investors on crypto markets. The team welcomes the community to contact directly via the official groups in Telegram, Facebook or LinkedIn.

Transcript of George Webb Video Series Part 303 "Hillary's Leakers, Hackers, and Henchmen" [@Georgwebb / #HRCRatline]

  • George Webb Delivers Imran's Bitcoin To Rahm - YouTube
    • George has a long live session for Q and A
    • Clowns around with with the idea of hangliding into the FBI building and stealing hard drives full of bitcoin to give to Rahm Emanuel
    • Truly, George is the new most interesting man in the world\
    • McCabe's dog is name Coup Coup Ka Chew. Or maybe it's not. (it's jeremiah. only stupid mccabe would name his dog jeremiah)
  • Day 167.1. 20 Saipov "Visa Lottery Winners", 20 Blackberries - Managing Deep Uranium Ratline? - YouTube
    • It's day 167 this is part 1
    • And I'm getting a tooth out back here molars coming out
    • So I appreciate that, for the wonderful contribution by the viewers to give me that for free--I appreciate it
    • Last night we tried to arrange a meeting between Task Force and Robyn Gritz
    • And it was in the area of Pleasant Prairie near the border of Wisconsin
    • We don't give away the exact location
    • Now, everybody's gonna say Pleasant Prairie Pleasant Prairie: oh is that where Paul Ryan did the FoxConn deal
    • The foxconn is is the manufacturer in China China China China that makes the iPhone
    • And that's a two hundred fifty billion dollar investment that Trump did
    • So that's that's nice when that goes into your district
    • I think I'm pretty sure Pleasant Prairie is in Paul Ryan's district--is that ways quitting, because that's enough money to live on forever?
    • I don't know who knows?
    • But I don't know if I'm be able to upload this that's why I had to do the live stream yesterday
    • So sorry that was a little haphazard
    • But I really want to get the blues sisters together
    • I think this is really important--Robyn Gritz has that nuclear--she did all these nuclear negotiations in Iran...I don't want her to give away anything obviously classified
    • But we have an expert--a top world expert
    • And then we have somebody who at the state and local level has been involved in all these domestic activities
    • So it'd just be great to put the blues sisters together at the International with the with the National to really lend more expertise
    • So I know Robyn doesn't necessarily want to become a blues sister
    • And remake the Blues Brothers
    • But--you could see I wish I could have done the whole Saipov--loop in one go--by the cop car with a cop shocks and the cop tires, and the cop engine
    • And a half a pack of cigarettes full tank of gas--go down to Raja Foods--get the hawala send it back on a plane to Pakistan, pull off the halal, cash it for chips, convert it to Bitcoin, take the Bitcoin down to Rahm
    • I wish I could have done that all one go--as a blues brother--kind of Saipov
    • Now, everyone says, "well George, 19 Saipovs, 20 Blackberries: did each Saipov get a blackberry?"
    • And that was why Saipov had all these trucking companies?
    • You found five trucking companies, but were there 20?
    • Was each Saipov really a Saipov, were they all from Tashkent?
    • Were they all recruited by Craig Murray in Tashkent?
    • And I was surprised to learn Saipov was from Tashkent
    • The other thing that came out of yesterday was the 16 tons of what-do-you-get
    • You get you get a hell of a lot of valuable over Uranium that never made it--that from that megatons to megawatts--never made it to the United States
    • The 16 tons was in the Ukraine
    • Now, it moved somewhere
    • Was Deep Uranium right again?
    • It was all moved to Astana
    • Astana was this deep underground
    • I mean the story as actually going toward Deep Uranium
    • I mean that's where it is if you add up the value of that by going by hot Bob highly enriched Mueller's--quarter pounder, eight million a quarter pounder
    • That comes out to 4.48 trillion dollars
    • So as they were taking little bits off the top--selling off the Uranium to different nuclear powers
    • They put the drugs in there Rahm--wants
    • Now, I'm not saying these aren't legal drugs legal quarter weight drugs to sell to our veterans
    • But that is what Deep Uranium said a year ago
    • So I just keep finding a Deep Uranium's credibility is just getting confirmed by all these experts along the way
    • We'll keep following this story, but I have this feeling that Robyn Gritz is expertise in Iran is gonna lend to the same kind of it's gonna be just yet another part of the Uranium ratline for their developing nuclear program
  • Day 167.3. KGB Agent In Next Room - Rahm’s Abbott Labs VeroPharm Agents? - YouTube
    • Day 167 the anesthetic is in
    • You can see over there is not on the x-ray
    • But you can see clearly there's no no identifiable information there
    • Before I numb up, this this nuclear cities program--there's a KGB--this gal she's in the next room
    • Her father is in the KGB now
    • I don't know if Rahm Emanuel sent over the KGB, but she told the dentist: if anything happens to me you're in trouble
    • True story she works for Abbott labs I believe the drug is called Respiral {? / respirol? -- that's for breathing George...bronchodialator }
    • I said immediately to him tell me tell me tell me if it's Verro Pharma
  • Day 167.4. Q’s Triple AAA Clue - Astana to Awans to Alexandria? - YouTube
    • Day 164 this is part excuse-me 167 this is part 4
    • Tooth is out: extraction is a little bit like extracting HEU from Ukraine and taking it to Astana
    • So Q's out with a clue with Triple A about the Awans--the Triple A and the kill box
    • And I again, I talked to Deep Uranium on the kill box
    • When a opponent goes around a corner that's the perfect time to ambush them, and then you bottle them up as they go around the corner
    • And then that's the kill box
    • You get them from both sides in a kind of a box Deep Uranium is the one that said that Astana was the starting point of the ratline
    • I think that's where the 16 tons of HEU goes
    • I published a piece about 128 tons was the total nuclear inventory of plutonium from the Russians in 1991, when the Soviet Union collapsed
    • It's about 700 tons of HEU
    • So could 16 tons of that huge amount of Uranium
    • And plutonium have been diverted to Astana? you bet
    • So I do think all clues lead to Uranium
    • And the clue this morning on on Triple A it could have been the start of the ratline a being the Astana
    • And then the Awans to a place like Alexandria or it could be the people involved Hina Alvi, Imran Awan, and also Adila, his sister
    • So there's a lot of aides that go from Astana to the Awans to Alexandria
    • But we don't know what they were
    • But Q definitely was dropping big hints today on the triple A's
    • I think Astana most Americans don't know where it is
    • Again, if you don't remember trip Astana, the capital of Kazakhstan is one of the key--I think I believe it's capital of Kazakhstan at the top of our ratline
    • Deep Uranium over a year ago saying that's the beginning the ratline for the Uranium coming to the United States
    • And the drugs went with it, underneath
    • The yellowcake was on top or whatever the HEU
    • And the bottom was the white cake
    • Weapons in the other direction
    • Also weapons going out of Pakistan to Isis through the Pakistan Ordnance Factory
  • Day 167.5. More Q Clue - Triple A - Astana - Awans - ARMZ? - YouTube
    • Day 167
    • And this is part 5
    • And you don't have to comment about Q to wait for feedback
    • Everyone's saying, "George you dum-dum dodo head {{ no one is saying that }} don't you realize the third A is ARMZ, John Podesta's ARMZ company for arms"
    • And that is supported by this Muller announcing this new memo
    • Muller was enabled as a special prosecutor in May of last year 2017 by Rod Rosenstein
    • But now, there's a secret memo that's come to light that came out two months later, in August, enabling him to look at the Ukrainian situation Ukrainian trade with Paul Manafort and who? Oleg Deripaska
    • None of the people we introduced you to ever are not a key part later on down the road it seems
    • So what do we know about Oleg Deripaska?
    • Well could it be that the Awans the it's Astana to Awans and ARMZ? Maybe...
    • And were the Awans just doing the Uranium layer with the one two three with with Manafort
    • And was Deripaska doing the arms and drugs below that with Rahm, with the 20 Saipov trucking agencies, with the 20 Blackberries? Could be
    • So that's a wrinkle I'm sorry I missed ARMZ
    • Please accept my apologies
    • AAA = Astana Awans ARMZ
  • Day 167.6. Sweet Home Chicago - Blues Sisters - YouTube
    • It's day 167 this is part one it's cold here in the Windy City
    • So we decided to stay a few more days in Chicago
    • And the reason being is (sorry about the wind) is the Task Force it's really not just Task Force our local and state police representative who you know as Task Force
    • But really we want to add to the Task Force we want to add professionals from the FBI, especially like a Roby Gritz or a Mike McMahan on this subject of vetting
    • Vetting is very much in the news (I'll pan around here a little bit) vetting very much in the news
    • Now, hopefully that helps with the wind' vetting very much in the news with 44 different Democrats not vetting the Awans--any of them
    • Three of them being on the Intelligence Committee
    • So we're going to talk about different techniques of vetting that professionals use
    • We're not going to disclose anything classified like simultaneous interviews, or corroborating interviews, or recursive questioning, or none of those things will be discussed
    • We won't give away any classified information
    • But what we will do is talk about vetting, and how we might go about vetting the Awans, because it's never too late to do an assessment a damage assessment of what actually was exfiltrated out of the United States
    • What was in those hundreds of suspicious activity reports (SARs) going to Pakistan?
    • What was in those terabytes going to Pakistan?
    • Now, still we don't know the question
    • Now, there's rumors that Jesse Liu of the attorney general's office in the DC district has gone back to the grand jury, and may be considering an up charge for the Awans
    • So we don't know if that's true or not
    • But that certainly would be something that would be with no vetting we have no idea now
    • Luke Rosiak I heard him on today on a on a radio show before Hannity's, talking about the fact that hardly any of them even had a college degree
    • So we know something went horribly wrong with them all having $160,000 a year jobs in Congress
    • So this certainly has to be looked into
    • We hear that Chuck Grassley is also asked for a list of all people with classified clearances
    • So we'll see if the Awans come up in that or any of the Awan gang if you will
    • So that's what we have here in Chicago
    • We're going to try to have the Task Force--the hopefully the first two members of the Task Force will be the Blues sisters the Blues sisters
    • We'll have one state and local police officer
    • We'll hopefully have one International law enforcement officer
    • And Robyn Gritz to get our Task Force started off with the Blues sisters
    • And we might even have a live broadcast from a famous Blues Brothers location a little bit later this evening
  • Day 167.7. Loop Capital - 111 Jackson. - YouTube
    • Why Boeing? Well there are a Washington-based corporation that moved because of Rahm Emanuel here in a beautiful Chicago
    • Well there's another company from Washington about ready to do the same thing: it's called Amazon
    • Why are we subsidizing Amazon?
    • We don't know Trump's on the case now, though, and that's changing the whole dynamic
    • A lot of these things were true, but just never got any attention
    • Trump tweets it out, even though Preet Bharara want Bezos to buy Twitter just so Trump can't tweet
    • Probably not gonna happen
    • So got a you beautiful Chicago taxi down here we haven't made contact with Robyn Gritz yet
    • But we want our expertise on all these vetting questions
    • So we're gonna talk to her about damage assessments that she's done do we need another Amazon
    • So we needed another Chicago headquarters of a company stolen from another state well we'll find out
    • But if there are no tax breaks,
    • And then we are on the Washington Street bridge, so it is a little shaky--I hope it's not Chinese Steel
    • So then there you go
    • And we're not far well you can't really see it we're not far from the Willis Tower
    • And 111 Jackson.
    • What's 111 Jackson?
    • I know everybody's gonna say the same thing that's got to be something AWAN because it's a-1
    • That's the one it's the one: Loop capital, Loop capital 111 Jackson
    • We'll get there tomorrow
  • Day 168.1 Q Drops Star Electric Clue - Our STAR Reactor? - YouTube
    • It's day 168 here in Chicago
    • And the shooters father Q had mentioned look into the shooters father at YouTube
    • And his name is Ismail
    • This is we talked about Ismail Aghdam, so think of an agricultural dam
    • And anyway his company is Star Electric
    • And you look at his clients they really range all over the country
    • They range a lot in California where the company is based in Orange County
    • So it's Star Electric OC like Orange County
    • Of course you would expect Disney to be a customer, united bank, Facebook, etc
    • That's probably the old LA part of LA companies at Facebook acquired
    • Edison energy
    • Kaiser Permanente is big down in Orange County in LA
    • Morgan Stanley
    • Toshiba
    • Toyota etc
    • But interestingly enough they're also potentially involved in the New York transit system
    • These are all massive consumers of electrical energy
    • And if you open your mind a little to Lawrence Livermore Lab being in the same state
    • And if again, if you think if you put any credence in Q, you can look at this paper that was certainly quite a while ago--15 years ago, called some secure transportable autonomous reactor or the star reactor, which was developed at Lawrence Livermore laboratories
    • And it's for exactly this kind of use, where it's portable, it's for mining applications oil field applications...you never need to change the fuel in the core
    • So that reduces a lot of the--a lot of the safety concerns, because opening the core up, closing the core up, transporting fuel to the core, taking out old fuel pellets etc
    • So the idea here is almost like--you use a can of shaving cream when you're done with it you throw it away, you never refill the can if you will
    • And central generation on small electrical grids here is good
    • If we had Jeffries Epstein's Island we could use a small core reactor there, and just have we could have lights on in the tunnels forever, right?
    • Oil fields military installations
    • And if you look at the Hillary emails
    • And I believe they were real-time exfiltrated--at least State Department emails--through the Awan server at the Navy Yard, or at the very close to the Navy Yard there on M Street: if you look at those emails they're gonna be relating to this kind of thing it's not just gonna be small energy reactors, but developing people's 1-2-3 plans for their nuclear development both for peaceful use in military use
    • I think this is going to hit me over and over
    • It's usually right around oil fields because you can use a lot of the waste products from Uranium mining...of sulfuric acid...to get the yellowcake to do leaching in oil fields
    • So this is I believe all the five hundred thousand emails are gonna be related to this type of thing
    • And you that this gentleman here was this is his house here in San Diego
    • So it's not a big outfit by any means
    • And he said he made $100,000 as a sole proprietorship
    • But there's this arrest that he's had
    • He was the CEO of a company for about six years from 2002 to 2008
    • And he's CEO again, for another four year period
    • So it's on and off, so it's odd
    • And if you remember earlier in our series we talked about the AP1000 this is a pressurized water reactor which Westinghouse makes
    • The light water the boiling water reactors are the ones that GE makes
    • So we don't know exactly, but we've talked about this many times before
    • And it can be brought in on a core just like this, and be installed in a modular method
    • So it makes it a perfect use for somebody like a Google or a Facebook
    • Somebody has a huge server farm
    • Disney would be another great one because they've got all these electrical rides, and all lighting--the costs are so staggering there
    • Nuclear fuel just makes a lot of sense of course if you are a Edison elec Drake or something like that it's it can help back up your power grid for those times where you have peak load capacity situations as well
    • As well as small developing nations,
    • As well as nuclear facilities for military installations around the world
    • So I'm gonna shift here briefly now, to talk about Andre Taggart
    • Andre Taggarts gonna be on the show, just before Hannity today on I believe
    • <>
    • I'm going to switch gears here a little bit to talk about Total Information Awareness
    • This was a proposal in about the year 2003 as you can see here
    • And was called Total Information Agency, then it got changed a couple of times, and then defunded
    • But the idea basically was a fusion center for the United States
    • And a lot of what was in Total Information Awareness--even though got defunded by Congress--still ended up being implemented at the NSA
    • So this is why I think the Doug Gabriel discussion is so interesting, because it kind of follows right along
    • Here Admiral Poindexter called Total Information Awareness the Manhattan Project for counterterrorism
    • Basically was a collected all approach as well as using the geolocation that I talked so much about
    • And then the other idea that it was gonna have was data mining software, so that it could do predictive policing
    • Sort of the thing you see in Minority Report with Tom Cruise
    • And they just basically changed the name of TIA, and they codenamed it basketball
    • And there was this New York Times article in 2012 that said, "it was quietly thriving at the NSA"
    • But the idea here is of the different agencies that support it and go into this TIA program
    • And you're gonna find here's I'll show these DARPA slides a little bit later
    • But if you I don't have people remember INSCOM
    • Now, we've talked a lot about NSA, DIA, CIA I would talk about Stratcom--Special Operations Command
    • And JWAC are just basically joint commands we'll get to those laters
    • But there was this group that was hacked, this is the Army Intelligence and Security Command at Fort Belvoir
    • This operation is based in Fort Belvoir
    • Now, I believe Andre Taggart is working in this operation
    • This is Fort Belvoir INSCOM
    • And this is the key infiltration strategy for MAVNI right here
    • And Taggart is going to be on this radio show later
    • And we have Taggard at the Hawkshead address at 2008
    • So if the Taggart was actually at the Hawkshead address by a couple of different sources now at 2008, it was definitely an INSCOM operation, and a TIA for Total Information Awareness
    • Again, why would Andre Taggart have lied on the video?
    • It must be not that he's lying because he's a bad person, but he's covering for an operation
    • He's still employed, and he's still covering this operation at Fort Belvoir
    • I think that's what you're gonna find later on this afternoon or maybe a little bit later
    • But this is coming the INSCOM is definitely coming for Fort Belvoir
    • And this Total Information Awareness
    • I just want to expose folks to the program this morning we can get more into it later
    • And then of course we're going to Chicago
    • And we're going to go to Loop Capitol to follow up on some other new stuff as well
  • Day 168.2. Is Doug Gabriel Aware of Total Information Awareness? - YouTube
    • It's day 167 this is part 2
    • And Total Information Awareness--I was not aware of Total Information Awareness
    • TIA Total Information Awareness
    • So I've apologize
    • But it apparently it's it's the big story it
    • So it ties everything together--the PROMIS software--the software for Palantir
    • It feeds Palantir
    • Palantir feeds TIA
    • This big effort was started in 2002, and basically just has been they just changed the name
    • So I guess there's a couple of really good documentaries and books about it
    • But what's interesting is this INSCOM, which really started this idea
    • This INSCOM started out at Fort Belvoir, and Fort Belvoir is also the place that probably that Doug Gabriel
    • Doug Gabriel of AIM is was at because he was Army Intel before he was NSA
    • So INSCOM was split between a Virginia location and Fort Meade
    • And was that Doug, before Doug became NSA as a cryptographer, cryptologist for NSA
    • Interesting how everything keeps coming back
    • That's where that we found the Nazi art
    • We found 30 foot by 20 foot panels of Hitler--Nazi art in Fort Belvoir in December of last year!
    • So something is definitely going on
    • I call it the naughty NSA
    • Is INSCOM the naughty NSA? I don't know
    • But the NSA the NNSA is certainly the one responsible for all this nuclear material moving around
    • Now, this woman who ends up getting shot or shooting herself yesterday at Google, excuse me Google's company YOUTUBE, was not Turkish as first claimed
    • She lived on the Turkish border, but she was actually Iranian
    • And she there are reports that she may have Iranian military connections
    • So not only is her father working for Star Electric--five-star electric does the transportation system in Manhattan
    • But and then Star Electric out west doing these major Silicon Valley is that like MedStar?
    • Is that like AStar our transportation company in Virginia? I don't know
    • But this woman this AGHDAM woman spoke Farsi
    • What other young ladies spoke Farsi?
    • Mark Lambert's two daughters?
    • Was this woman Iranian Intel, as a translator? Iranian military as a translator? We don't know. We don't know
  • Day 168.3. Still Trying To Get Rahm His Imran Bitcoin - YouTube
    • Day 167 this is part three
    • Rahm wasn't at the other building with the other Picasso, so we found another Picasso
    • This is the county building here--the Cook County Building
    • Rahm: I have your Bitcoin
    • I don't really feel comfortable carrying your Bitcoin
    • Can you wave?
    • Can you just wave your Imran flag?
    • Can you can you wave your flag that says I love Pakistani farmers land?
    • Can you wave the flag that says I love USAID?
    • Alright we'll let you know if we get Rahm his Bitcoin
  • Day 168.4. The Teal Trump Rahm Imran Battle Is A Few Hundred Meyers. - YouTube
    • It's day 168
    • Over one year ago Task Force gave me the lead of the Chicago Tribune talking about Melissa Bean. Melissa Bean
    • She was a Congresswoman from Illinois from 2005 to 2011
    • That's how Rahm Emanuel inserted Imran Awan into the Congress of the United States
    • Of course a beautiful Wrigley building behind us
    • And this building here was the building that Peter Smith worked in, right here
    • Of course the beautiful Chicago River and the water taxis
    • And of course Trump Tower
    • This whole drama comes down to really a few few hundred meters between the Wrigley Building right there, where Peter Smith was
    • The Oppo research, the MIS Department and the Trump Tower
    • It's all coming to a head and you're all here to witness it
  • Day 169.1 Q Query - Did Rahm's Loop Capital Prey On the VA? - YouTube
    • It's day 169 this is part 1
    • And if you didn't see yesterday I was unsuccessful yet again, trying to get rahm emanuel his Bitcoin from Imran
    • Here's a excerpt from it--I'm yelling can you wave a flag of some type to let me know you're there can you wave a USAID flag, potentially
    • Can you wave a flag of Pakistani farmers can you wave a map of the Pakistani farmers land you might have stole I'm imploring him to wave some type of flag here, and he is not waving the flag
    • So it's it was unsuccessful
    • So moving right along
    • If you're not aware of the other article I referenced, which was a Chicago Tribune article of 2005, it's talking about this Melissa Bean and her Blackberry
    • And it's talking about hey her calendars sent directly to us here at the blackberry regardless of where she is I also get her documents we also send her PDF documents to brief her
    • So this is these are gonna be coming from all those SES folks
    • And of course, it's also gonna be going to Pakistan
    • And at that time, way back then, 2005 Imran was doing IT technology for 8 members of Congress
    • So you just have people send whatever document you want, and have any of course you forward terabytes on to Pakistan
    • This is going on since 2005 then you can see where they say how indispensable BlackBerry is
    • So this is not a new thing a lot of people talked about Total Information Awareness--this series on BBC--which was the Last Enemy if you want to check it out
    • This is the Benedict Cumberbatch played this part I referenced the Minority Report, where Total Information Awareness allows these precognitive kind of autists cops to predict crime
    • And I'm not sure that we didn't exactly end up with with this
    • Peter Thiel just won an 876 million dollar contract with the Army
    • You wonder if it's not out of Fort Belvoir under another name
    • I looked up a lot of the Peter Smith's because I walked by where Peter Smith worked at the Wrigley building, through our Plum book
    • And here's just a random sample of Smith's
    • And I just noticed this guy here at Social Security
    • And then he was still working in the administration this "Peter B Smith", not the Peter Smith that was dead died in the Mayo Clinic with the helium
    • But this Peter Smith is the Social Security Administration analyst...
    • I just thought I would show you
    • But he moves from Housing and Urban Development over to Social Security Administration
    • I don't know if that's a path that's taken very often
    • But again, it just seems like they all start out in Homeland Security as lawyers
    • And then they infiltrate across the board--I guess that's the point I'm making here
    • Pick a lane as I guess is what I'm saying
    • And become a deep expert in your lane rather than just be kind of coming this journey man lawyer that can be infiltrated into wherever a political party might want to infiltrate you
    • Here's another one here's Laura Smith
    • And she is providing expertise in NOAA we know NOAA
    • And even though she's SES she leaves the Government after you can see here after the election is lost
    • And you can see kind of how these titles go
    • Deputy chief to the senior staff of the Under Secretary
    • If you don't have one of those types of titles in Washington you're really not much of anything
    • And of course the ubiquitous George Washington in the University Law School
    • This I'm seeing over and over again, with the Masters of some kind of business training and then the Georgetown Law, and then you become kind of the CIA lawyer that can move and be infiltrated, at a whim
    • Here's a last one I'll do which is when dindi Smith
    • And again, you're gonna find he was one of these weapons of mass destruction people
    • And he actually moves up even though Trump, with the Trump election--sorry about that--he moves up the ladder he was the deputy assistant 2005 to 2017, and Trump actually ends up promoting him
    • But the real Smith that to talk to about as this guy here here he is in the plum book this is Michael Mayo Smith
    • And of course Peter Smith made me think of the Mayo Clinic
    • And made me think of these veterans integrated service networks
    • And there was a reporter by the name of Kimball--I believe it was Sarah Kimball that said it Oh everything everything is going wrong not just a worgen harvesting
    • But--appointments for friends they're bringing in people from other countries the veterans are waiting forever I'd be just about everything
    • And of course she died immediately after that
    • But this gentleman here was one of three regional VISN directors--this Mayo Smith--to lose his job
    • Shulkin right before he left was able to fire three of them
    • One was New England, the other was Arizona, of course Arizona is very famous Arizona, New Mexico and Southern California, and then West Virginia Maryland, and DC was also the other person to go
    • We have that horrific report about the DC Washington DC VA
    • So Virginia and Maryland--Virginia still stays in place
    • I'll get that name for you as we move forward
    • But you can see Shulkin was kind of trying to throw everyone else under the bus to try to save his job
    • But in actual fact we finally shucked Shulkin
    • So progress is made along the way in this series I just I every once in a while I need to stop and take an accounting of it
    • And just say we are being effective by getting facts out to the public
    • And getting whistleblowers names like Campbell's names out in the public
    • It is having the effect on the Trump administration
    • And we are getting out these these SES folks that are really clogging up the mill
  • Day 169.3. Corporate Welfare To Entice Amazon at United Center - YouTube
    • It's day 169
    • And this is part three
    • And we're following Rahm Emmanuel's investments all over California
    • And we're following his corporate welfare
    • We're still we still have the Bitcoin from Imran--we're trying to get Imran his Bitcoin
    • Rahm is not checked off yet
    • So we decided to start going to some of the different places where Rahm has arranged corporate welfare
    • Uber being one of them
    • Even Peter Thiel even ambrosia Mr. Peter Thiel I've never saw any blood too young for me--even he says Uber is the most ethically challenged company in this in Silicon Valley, if you could imagine that
    • So of course you're gonna have Eric Schmidt involved
    • We're gonna have some other key guys involved maybe Tim Geithner I don't know
    • But there is just something I found out about a couple of minutes ago--other parts of corporate welfare welfare called a tax investment fund tax investment fund
    • You're saying that's TIF that's not TI a you're not saying Total Information Awareness--you're saying tax investment fund you change things you said TIA yesterday
    • And then had a letter another letter George
    • Now, you've got tax investment fund what the tax investment fund is that scrape some money off the top of your property taxes here
    • And then build places like uber or builds a hotel for Marriott Hotel or down by Homen Square just to make sure that your guests are comfortable getting corporate welfare
    • They redo the super boxes down there at United Center
    • And oh by the way we're gonna have that neighborhood patrolled by University of Chicago Police, University of Chicago, University of Chicago Police
    • And they're going to patrol an area outside of the campus because we want our fake cops at United Center sitting in the luxury boxes with our executives from Uber, we want them to be comfortable, and we want to make sure that there's no...no Constitution
    • Only color-of-law is good enough for our corporate donors here at Uber corporation
  • Day 169.4. Q Clue Cues Me To Go To Loop Capital. - YouTube
    • Day 169 this is part 4
    • And here we are at Luke Capitol
    • Now, a lot of people say Luke Capitol isn't that that Q thing? That's that Q thing right?
    • Well it's guess we're 111 Jackson
    • Now, you may remember a few of these scenes that we're gonna show you rights out out of Luke Luke Capitol 1 111 West Jackson
    • Of course we're not too far from Willis Tower here used to be Sears Tower for many people who know that and
    • Now, you're gonna go down what sometimes is known as Chicago's Wall Street, by the Chicago Board of Trade
    • Now, you may remember the famous scene from Trading Places
    • Of course you've always have to have your obligatory statues to goodness light
    • And Sophia the GODdess of wisdom right
    • So we're gonna illegally cross the street
    • And show you kind of Chicago's little Wall Street
    • Now, did Rahm Emanuel in fact corporate welfare for everyone wearing wing tips?
    • Hard to say
    • Was it Luke Capital his financial vehicle to bring in Boeing
    • Was Luke Capital the financial vehicle that he plans to bring in Amazon
    • Is it going to be corporate welfare for the foreseeable future?
    • We don't really know
    • But all we can do is bring you the truth
    • It's really odd it seems like corporate welfare is had an all-time high
    • But real welfare to real people that are freezing below the bridges in Chicago is a lady I'm with
    • It's called Bernie Bridges--hashtag capital B Bernie capital B bridges she's above the bridge during the day with a message that the Washington Post can't print
    • She's above Washington Bridge saying, "hey no Amazon in in Chicago", right
    • And then at night they go below bridges burning below bridges
    • And she gives out we just gave some stuff to some homeless people
    • And she always carry six meals with her
    • Before major holidays: 12 meals
    • So here it is the answer is Rahm: how much longer with the corporate welfare?
    • When will some of the money go actually for the streets, rather than for the super boxes at the United Center?
    • And will the University of Chicago be the police force for Homen Square, for another foreseeable future, for 65,000 residents where they're not constitutionally-empowered to do any policing?
    • {{ 911: Robocop: OCP!}}
    • Is it going to be corporate welfare forever, Rahm
    • Is it going to always fall to the citizens to do what really is right for the people who live here in Chicago?
    • ...Who are in need?
    • That's the question
    • << rhetorical question: HONK! car confirms. >>
  • Day 169.5. Trebuchet For Rahm’s Bitcoin From Imran - Joking! - YouTube
    • It's day 169 part 5
    • There is the challenge this is the Rahm Emanuel challenge--the office way up there by that American flag
    • Rahm has not come down to get his bitcoin Imran's bitcoin
    • I'm getting a little tired of carrying it to be honest with you I realize it's billions of dollars
    • So what we've done here is we've jury-rigged this this Picasso to be sort of a trebuchet
    • Now, you remember in medieval times the trebuchet was one of the most feared weapons immediate history, because it used spring action, spring action
    • So we're gonna actually take the picasso, we're gonna mount the we're gonna mount the disc drives with all be with all the bitcoin from Pakistan, we're gonna mount it, and we're gonna pivot it directly toward Rahm's office
    • And we are going to fire it at a very high speed
    • Now, this is a very innocuous bag of just billions of dollars in Bitcoin
    • So it will only break a few windows
    • But there is just literally no other way to get Rahm his Bitcoin
    • Now, you may say, "oh you should get a historical reenactor, from the battles of medieval times, back in England"
    • And you may say, "Oh Tewkesbury. Go get a Tewksbury battle reenactor. Go get a battle reenactor for the Earl of Gloucester. Go get someone who can play Richard the third better than you who knows the first line of the movie or the play better than you."
    • Well we're just going to have to improvise
    • The next video you see roms roms Bitcoin will be flying through the window up there on that trebuchet
    • And this this functionless art will now, take on great significance getting Rahm his due from Pakistan
  • Day 169.6. Trump Tweets About Amazon Destroying Towns, Rahm Works On Tax Shelter - YouTube
    • It's day 169 this is part 7
    • And Trump is sent a clear signal to Rahm Emanuel
    • And amazon to stop the corporate welfare
    • And you can see this battle going on right over here between Trump Tower in the old Wrigley building--the Chicago Tribune
    • Chicago Tribune being very much like the Washington Post
    • And Jeff Bezos' Washington Post
    • The key lobbyists, the head lobbyist for Rahm Emanuel, and Jeff Bezos that's where the battles taking place--200 metres apart
    • And I think the message is clear << Ding ding ding Bridge Stop signal >> stop corporate welfare
  • Day 169.8. Robyn Gritz - We Are Not Insiders, But We Can Learn - YouTube
    • It's day 169 this is probably part eight
    • Right in there is Robyn Grits meeting with Task Force
    • And another supporter, viewer of the channel: I really appreciate it
    • And so three hours we had a long conversation
    • And see Task Force trade kind of experiences with Robyn Grits was really him
    • And I think an important thing
    • There's so much with both of them--with just the whole Robert Levinson
    • And the whole antiterrorism the whole Andy McCabe thing
    • And then Task Force with all of the parolee attacks
    • And the Becerra attack etc
    • It becomes there's a lot
    • And both people need to get to know both of those sides of the story
    • But I think for us on the outside
    • (And this is my attempt at a an extended analogy here)
    • They're on the inside talking about their insider experiences
    • We're on the outside
    • What we're trying to do out here is to extend the expertise, extend the experiences, extend the things that may have gone wrong
    • And create a bigger learning for all women who may be in this position in law enforcement, where they were kind of crushed by males who made pretty bad decisions
    • And one of the things I love--probing
    • And asking deeper and deeper questions

4/23/14 - Bitcoin into space, Atlas ATS pushes forward, & Dorian Nakamoto says thank you

Video: http://www.moneyandtech.com/apr23-news-update/
Here are today's top news stories in Money & Tech:
The blockchain is headed for space. Jeff Garzik’s Dunvegan Space Systems is partnering with Deep Space Industries to build satellites called ‘BitSats’ that will be launched into space as a backup bitcoin orbital system. From orbit, these BitSats will be able to broadcast out transaction data from the blockchain to any users with a downlink. Garzik made the first payment to Deep Space Industries via BitPay, where he is also a senior software developer, and is now accepting bitcoin donations to help complete the project.
Bitcoin trading platform Atlas ATS has formed a partnership with The National Stock Exchange to speed up regulatory approval. By partnering with this self-regulatory organization, Atlas ATS hopes to bypass FinCEN's money-transmitting license in favor of SEC-approved rules that are more tailored to digital currency exchanges. Kraken and CoinMKT are also taking this route, as several exchanges race to become the first fully regulated digital currency exchange.
Nine state banking officials from the US Conference of State Bank Supervisors (CSBS), including New York Superintendent Ben Lawsky, have launched the Emerging Payments Task Force. The new task force plans to investigate bitcoin and other virtual currencies in the hopes of developing state regulation best practices, as well as more educational resources. The discussion will begin with a public hearing on May 16th in Chicago.
With the reluctance of Irish banks to accept bitcoin, ATM provider BitVendo and safe deposit box facility Merrion Vaults have partnered to provide cold storage to BitVendo's local cryptocurrency users. The service allows users to store their bitcoins safely in Merrion Vaults' high quality and secure safe deposit vault in Dublin.
Butterfly Labs has been on rocky ground since this month's lawsuit against the bitcoin mining hardware company, accusing it of collecting payments for false orders and using customer equipment for their own mining. This recent lawsuit is only the latest accusation of fraud against the Kansas-based company. What's more, co-founder Sonny Vleisides has been found in violation of his probation since pleading guilty to one count of mail fraud in 2010, which will likely extend his probation another two years.
Dorian Nakamoto, the man famously falsely identified as bitcoin's creator, has filmed a YouTube video with Andreas Antonopoulos to thank the bitcoin community for its support. Antonopoulos led a fundraising campaign for Nakamoto that raised over 47 bitcoins - worth nearly $23,000 dollars - in a new bitcoin wallet that Nakamoto says he will keep open as a new bitcoin user. Watch that YouTube video at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w7YmJZ-qVW8.
Bitcoin documentary The Rise and Rise of Bitcoin premieres today at the Tribeca Film Festival in New York City. Money & Tech will be attending the screening, as well as the film’s after-party hosted by Charlie Shrem. We will be bringing you video coverage and interviews from that event soon.
We will also be attending the next major digital currency event this Friday, Dogecon SF, which will be San Francisco's first dogecoin conference. The event is hosted by Follow The Coin, and will feature prominent industry speakers such as litecoin creator Charlie Lee, industry expert Andreas Antonopoulos, and of course, Dogecoin's own creator, Jackson Palmer. We sat down with Tina Hui and Matt Schlicht from Follow The Coin to talk about what we can look forward to at Dogecon SF. Find that interview here: http://moneyandtech.com/follow-the-coin-dogecon-sf/

4/23/14 - Bitcoin into space, Atlas ATS pushes forward, & Dorian Nakamoto says thank you

Video: http://moneyandtech.com/apr23-news-update/
Here are today's top news stories in Money & Tech:
The blockchain is headed for space. Jeff Garzik’s Dunvegan Space Systems is partnering with Deep Space Industries to build satellites called ‘BitSats’ that will be launched into space as a backup bitcoin orbital system. From orbit, these BitSats will be able to broadcast out transaction data from the blockchain to any users with a downlink. Garzik made the first payment to Deep Space Industries via BitPay, where he is also a senior software developer, and is now accepting bitcoin donations to help complete the project.
Bitcoin trading platform Atlas ATS has formed a partnership with The National Stock Exchange to speed up regulatory approval. By partnering with this self-regulatory organization, Atlas ATS hopes to bypass FinCEN's money-transmitting license in favor of SEC-approved rules that are more tailored to digital currency exchanges. Kraken and CoinMKT are also taking this route, as several exchanges race to become the first fully regulated digital currency exchange.
Nine state banking officials from the US Conference of State Bank Supervisors (CSBS), including New York Superintendent Ben Lawsky, have launched the Emerging Payments Task Force. The new task force plans to investigate bitcoin and other virtual currencies in the hopes of developing state regulation best practices, as well as more educational resources. The discussion will begin with a public hearing on May 16th in Chicago.
With the reluctance of Irish banks to accept bitcoin, ATM provider BitVendo and safe deposit box facility Merrion Vaults have partnered to provide cold storage to BitVendo's local cryptocurrency users. The service allows users to store their bitcoins safely in Merrion Vaults' high quality and secure safe deposit vault in Dublin.
Butterfly Labs has been on rocky ground since this month's lawsuit against the bitcoin mining hardware company, accusing it of collecting payments for false orders and using customer equipment for their own mining. This recent lawsuit is only the latest accusation of fraud against the Kansas-based company. What's more, co-founder Sonny Vleisides has been found in violation of his probation since pleading guilty to one count of mail fraud in 2010, which will likely extend his probation another two years.
Dorian Nakamoto, the man famously falsely identified as bitcoin's creator, has filmed a YouTube video with Andreas Antonopoulos to thank the bitcoin community for its support. Antonopoulos led a fundraising campaign for Nakamoto that raised over 47 bitcoins - worth nearly $23,000 dollars - in a new bitcoin wallet that Nakamoto says he will keep open as a new bitcoin user. Watch that YouTube video at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w7YmJZ-qVW8.
Bitcoin documentary The Rise and Rise of Bitcoin premieres today at the Tribeca Film Festival in New York City. Money & Tech will be attending the screening, as well as the film’s after-party hosted by Charlie Shrem. We will be bringing you video coverage and interviews from that event soon.
We will also be attending the next major digital currency event this Friday, Dogecon SF, which will be San Francisco's first dogecoin conference. The event is hosted by Follow The Coin, and will feature prominent industry speakers such as litecoin creator Charlie Lee, industry expert Andreas Antonopoulos, and of course, Dogecoin's own creator, Jackson Palmer. We sat down with Tina Hui and Matt Schlicht from Follow The Coin to talk about what we can look forward to at Dogecon SF.

Questions Answers
As someone who creates content, do you think there's a solution for middle class content creators? It seems that they're the most hurt by piracy, yet free-culture proponents almost exclusively focus on large corporations. Kickstarter, Indie Go-Go, and their brethren aren't picking up that slack- tales of success seem to be the outliers, and many of the poster-children (Radiohead, Amanda Palmer, etc.) rely on past success and marketing dollars. So, will this pick up, and will there be a middle class of creators? Or are we now living in a world of (sometimes skilled, but still) amateurs? This is a smart question and demands a much longer answer than i can give here. but the short of it in my opinion is that it's a misunderstanding to assume it's harder for 'middle class artists' in this climate. it's always been very very hard. there have always been obstacles and gatekeepers. the digital landscape has opened many many doors and closed some doors. it's in many ways easier, but you still need that magic combo of talent, tenacity and luck.
Man I'm sorry but I've gotta ask...what happened to you man? Why did Keanu make it out and why did you disappear into obscurity? Haha. not an offensive question at all. I quit acting professionally in 94, after Freaked to focus on writing and directing. I'd been acting professionally since I was 10 years old and I wanted out of the public eye. It's really only been in the last couple of years that i've intentionally been slipping back in front of the camera. But I think it's important for child actors to spend time away from constant exposure. I tell a lot of kids this in that field.
Be honest…has Keanu admitted his immortality to you? I could tell you but then I'd have to kill you. And then he would drink your blood and live for another millenia...
Did you buy any Bitcoins before they blew up in value recently? Haha, I did not. The Winklevoss twins got them all :)
Since George Carlin has died, will there be some new character coming in to replace Rufus in helping the Wyld Stallyns? We've spent a lot of time and thought on making this work. all i can say right now :)
On a scale of 1 to 10, how likely is it that B&T 3 will be financed and actually get made? I'd say 10 but it's Hollywood... so 9.9?
Did you ever use the SR before it went down? I honestly did not. I am a dull family man and most of what i need to purchase online can be found in the toddler section of Amazon :)
Your stepmom is cute. Remember when she was a senior and you were a freshman? Do You get BnT references constantly and do they annoy you? No, thankfully I like the movies a lot. I have some friends who acted in movies that they can't shake that they hated. that is an existential nightmare from which one can never awaken!
Thanks for doing this AMA, and for being part of one of my all-time favorite films. You've been quoted as saying "[Bill and Ted] was a happy accident. No one thought it would ever see the light of day." Could you expand on that? Both BnT movies were made independently. The first one was really low budget and kind of under the radar when we made it. then it sat on a shelf for a year after being made, when the producing company went belly up. So we kind of gave up on it. Then it was bought up and released and was a big hit :)
What was it like working with Mr. T? Is his public persona accurate as to who he really is? It is! Exactly! He's a really great person, into community outreach and helping people. A wonderful guy.
When will we have a new Bill and Ted to watch any plot details You can share? What got You so interested in Bitcoin? Also, Thank You for being so Excellent! Party On! I first got interested in Bitcoin in '09, when it magically appeared out of the ether. Much like Napster appeared out of nowhere 10 years prior. I recognized that Bitcoin felt like the next big thing to come out of peer-to-peer.
What can I do to get into the Bitcoin World. I don't know much about it. Start at blockchain.info. that will lead the way.
Do you think the Tor network is forever tainted due to the Silk Road takedown, or does it still remain a viable method of obtaining true anonymity on the Internet? Absolutely not. SR accounts for a tiny fraction of TOR use and is not going to impact Bitcoin much either in the long run. As Wozniak so perfectly put it, you don't shut down the whole highway when one car is speeding.
What was the funnest thing about making The Lost Boys? Having dirt kicked into my eyes by the two Coreys in my death scene. Actually it wasn't funny at the time; i had full eye contacts in and my cornea got scratched. had to go the hospital. Loved those guys tho...
Any cool memorabilia you kept from Bill and Ted? I had my evil robot head from BnT 2, but it eventually rotted. I used it as a doorstep. My kids loved it :)
What motivated you to be one of the first films to educate those about the online blackmarket? why exactly do you need the funding from the kickstarter? Because, like the Napster story, there is a lot of noise but not a lot of context. I think we need some context and our film will be one form of providing that. We are using Kickstarter for some of the funding in order to begin to build our community for the film. We want people's input, the changes occurring through the Web are part of a global movement.
Are you actually going to provide any information we don't already know from all that's been written about this? Is this just a movie version of a bunch of news articles? Our doc is an expansive examination of a movement that began decades ago and is now hitting a peak of global impact. we are interviewing the core players in this story. It's not the kind of thing news articles do in any capacity. join our kickstarter, be part of the process and of the movie's community :)
How did you do research for the script? How did you get a script just a few weeks after SR was busted? It's a documentary :)
Alex, as someone who studied Napster so much for Downloaded, what would Bill & Ted have thought of it: Most Excellent or Non-Triumphant? They would have said 'huh???'
Is a melvin a synonym for wedgie, or a completely different maneuver executed from the front? You answered your own question :))
Is there any fond memory that stands out from making The Lost Boys? Honestly the most fun i ever had 'working'. Joel Schumacher knows how to create an amazing environment to work in. It's one of my fondest memories of my crazy youth! :)
On the kickstarter page, under the "Silk Road" header, the phrase "trading mostly in drugs and weapons" is used. Don't you feel that claiming that weapon sales were a large part of the silk road's operations is misleading? especially since weapon sales were specifically banned from the site shortly after its creation? Certainly the part about mostly trading in drugs is spot on, but also weapons? Come on, that's just untrue. Sorry if that seems misleading. As the Armory only lasted a year. But SR was built for that purpose wherever it ultimately landed.
I don't know if you remember me, but I went to school with your son in LA, me and my brother stayed at your house a few times. Kinda funny how I never got to thank you for being so excellent in Bill and Ted back then, so I figured I'd do it now! Hey Dante! Hope you guys are well!
I suppose I should ask a question, so what drew you to the idea of the deep web? What made you want to make this movie? The Deep Web lies at the heart of the digital revolution, that has impacted every corner of our lives. There are huge changes that have occurred in the last decade, and many more around the corner. Examining the Deep Web in detail allows us to closely examine this revolution and its implications.
Do you think that the high prices that bitcoins are experiencing right now is actually a bad sign, since it indicates instability? Where do you think the value of Bitcoins will ultimately fall once the bubble bursts? No one knows where it will settle. It's not unlike gold in this regard. But once it's been around a bit longer and more people are taking it, the value will increase within that framework but not in such a wild manner. this form of currency is here to stay, of that there is no question.
How did people find silk road online? That always boggled my mind, because I assume it wasn't as easy as googling it haha Did you have to like, "know" someone in the business to gain membership? It's not hard to find these sites, it's just dangerous. don't go hunting for scorpions unless you are prepared to get stung.
So Deep Web... Do you have a script already? Are you dealing with the actual events, or fictionalizing them? If the former, are you worried about having to pay folks for rights? If you have a script, how does it toe the line between being too simplified to please the target demo/actually tell the story and too esoteric for the mass market? It's a feature documentary. please join our kickstarter :)
I don't think the story is too esoteric at all, just as the details of the Napster story weren't. These are universal stories about global communities.
How much about the deep web did you investigate? I have done some looking into it recently and there is some pretty disgusting stuff out there. To be honest I kind of wish I never heard about it. Silk road is only the tip of the iceberg and to me doesnt seem like that big of a deal compared to some of the other stuff out there like the hitmen websites and human dolls for sale etc. What is your take on the rest of it outside of silk road? There is a lot of dark and horrible stuff in the Dark Web. The Deep Web is a much broader world, and in my view needs to be understood as separate from the much smaller Dark Web, and in need of protection.
When did you get into directing? I realize I could easily find this out on IMDB but it's just cooler to ask the source! Hah, thanks for asking! I actually went to NYU film school to study directing before I acted in all the movies. It's always been one of my passions. I started directing professionally in about 86. Shooting music videos and commercials and then our show on MTV, The Idiot Box.
So I'm guessing MTV/Viacom or somesuch own the DVD rights to The Idiot Box? There was a fair amount of comedy from that era of MTV that I'd love to be able to watch again… MTV owns it... why no DVD... yet...
What was it like working with a big star like Larry "bud" Melman? He was awesome of course. RIP.
Wait, does Satoshi = Stations??? Ahhh you cracked the code!!!
Excellent job on Downloaded! I enjoyed remembering a time in the not so distant past when 'regular people' could not envision a world in which their music lived on a computer. Today, regular people cannot envision a world in which their money lives on a computer. I was also surprised to learn about your early connection with the world of MP3s. Could you elaborate on what you think we can learn about Bitcoin based on your experiences with Napster and the MP3 scene in the late 90's? The world is responding to Bitcoin and a new awareness of the Deep Web much like they responded to Napster, with fear and demonizing. Our film aims to put these things in some context.
What made you want to do this documentary? I've been following the story myself and it's certainly one worth following but how did you yourself first get interested in the topic? I have been interested in global web-based communities and emerging technologies since the mid 80's. There is a revolution occurring in global culture at the moment, that will change everything. and it's only just beginning. what's not interesting about that?? :)
I don't have a question but Excellent Adventure made me who I am today. Thank you. Fuck it, uh. Do you agree that Cinnamon Toast Crunch is hands down the best cereal? My kids do. it's evil.
off, I want to thank you for posting my Rasta Eyeball with a machine gun tattoo on your blog. It made getting it completely worth it. I just want to know which of the characters from Freaked is your favourite? Stuey Gluck!!
And your tat is amazing!
Hello there, thanks for doing this! I just wanted to ask if by making a movie that sheds light on the dark web/bitcoins etc. It will shed more light on an area of the web that generally dislikes the attention. In other words could it create a misaprehension of the mission and possible positive effects the darkweb community tries to provide? I think the current media spin has that effect; in that it tends to paint the entire deep web and bitcoins and cryptography with a negative brush. this is both inaccurate and destructive. Our movie does not paint dark things in a positive light, it gives context to the entire arena.
Will the Silk Road be back? Also, can you say hi to my smokin hot babe Sherry? It is back.
Hey Alex, A quick glance at your wikipedia page has made me realise you directed Knock Me Down by RHCP! Did you have much contact with the band? How was it working with them? Thanks for the AMA; Looking forward to B&T3! I love the chili's and have known them for decades. they are still great, but in the mid 80's when I had the fortune of doing some work with them, it is hard to quantify how amazing they were. the best live act on the road, by far!!
So when are you planning to bless the world with Bill & Ted 3? Soon as we get it up and running!
If you could star in any movie from any time, what movie would it be and what role would you have and why? Buster Keaton in anything probably. No one in the movies ever had a better time.
So what is the "untold" story of Bitcoin/Silk road? Isn't most of it public knowledge by now? Or we'll we have to wait and see the movie? You don't have to wait if you join our Kickstarter and become part of the making of the movie! It is hardly public knowledge as no one has framed this story up yet in one film, and the story itself is unfolding every day. :)
What was the most surprising thing you found out about the Silk Road? That's in the movie :)
Hey Alex, What will Deep Web be like? Sort of a CNN special or does it have a bigger ambition, i.e. are you making it on a scale for wide distribution in movie theaters? If the latter, what documentaries would you compare it to in terms of style and storytelling? Our doc has a broader ambition than reportage. We are making a film about a technological revolution that has been brewing for decades.
Hm, don't know you but this does sound interesting. When can we expect this movie to come out? Anything interesting about these topics you learned? Every day I learn something new and fascinating. We hope to finish within the next year. Join our kickstarter and be part of our community :)
What ''good'' is there in the deep web? I only hear stories about horrific things like drugs, black market stuff, assassins, etc. Also, were you fortunate enough to had invested in bitcoin in it's early stages? The Deep Web is being demonized somewhat in the press, which is a misunderstanding of what it is. DW represents all content on the web that is not indexed. this doesn't mean people are doing bad things. it means they are unseen. the Dark Web is a term that has come to characterize people who use the web for illicit means. the dark web represents a fraction of the Deep Web.
On your Kickstarter campaign, you say, "Bitcoin has the potential to create a level of global disruption that will make Napster look like child's play." Can you expand on that? BitCoin is a peer to peer crypto-currency. Like any peer to peer technology it is decentralized and operated by a wide user base spread across the net. As such it is here to stay, and being an unregulated currency that exists outside the control of banks and governments, it is poised to have a massive impact on the world. That's what I mean :)
Why are you focusing on the darker side of the deep web instead of the good side? Its virtues clearly outweigh the illegal stuff. As someone who appreciates the privacy benefits of Bitcoin, TOR and the Deep Web, I am concerned about the public's disproportionate focus on its negative and illegal uses. Do you plan to address this bias at all? Question 1: I am absolutely not only focusing on the dark side of the Deep Web. In fact one of my key points is that the Deep Web is misrepresented, and inaccurately represented. It is mostly just a reference to all the content on the web that is not indexed. Most of which is not dark and a lot of which is frankly boring private data :)
Are you accepting Bitcoin for the financing of this film? If not, why not? Again, thanks for doing this, but I am concerned that your focus on the negative side of TOR will continue to twist the public's perception in the wrong direction. 2: We will absolutely be accepting BTC for the movie. But Kickstarter does not accept BTC so we are doing that separately. Stay tuned!
3: Yes the bias is a big problem and we will debunk the myths, just as I did with Downloaded. People like to hold onto their preconceptions tho, so I have no illusions about turning the world around :) A lot of people loved my Napster movie, but there were many in the mainstream press who were outraged that I didn't spend more time castigating the Napster architects for being thieves who created piracy software, when clearly that is not the truth, just the well-spun myth. but myths die hard.
How concerned are you with getting all the details right? You plan to talk about things happening in the more obscure and less legal parts of the Internet. The people who use those parts of the Internet are often pretty knowledgeable about the fine technical details, and are annoyed when people get them wrong. Even the term "Deep Web" has a whiff of "Information Superhighway" or "Series of Tubes" about it. Aside from just wanting to get the details right for the sake of having an informative and accurate documentary, are you concerned at all with upsetting the wrong kinds of people by doing this? After all, the guy behind Silk Road is rumoured to have tried(?) to have people killed. Our film isn't a Silk Road movie but an exploration of the history and evolution of the Deep Web, as told by its architects. That is the story that I believe matters most :)
Are you covering other crypto currencies? Also, I didn't think porn hid on the internet. I am yes. This movie is largely about the crypto-revolution.
What are your thoughts on the rather dubious "hired a hitman" charges against DPR (Ross Ulbricht)? Do you think law enforcement used parallel construction to identify the SR server or otherwise make the case against SDPR? Looking forward to this documentary, and I'm a huge fan of Bill and Ted! It's a really fascinating case that is unfolding and changing constantly. No one knows the full story at the moment outside of the Feds, and I'm sure they're chasing some crazy leads trying to iron it all out!
Hey Alex I was just wondering if you used Silk Road for movie research and what the movie is gonna be about? The site used to pride themselves on anonymity so is it a lot of speculation about what goes on behind the curtain or were you able to actually talk to and interview the people behind the scenes of the website? I didn't use SR for research but am in contact with many people close to the world and story.
Can I donate to the Deep Web movie via Bitcoin? I loved the Napster doc, and am super excited for this one, since judging by your prior work I think it will be very high quality. There was no bitcoin address listed on the kickstarter page! Yes Kickstarter does not allow BitCoin pledges. We will have a BitCoin option soon!
Bitcoin is seen as a "dirty" term by the media as it usually relates to illicit activities, what could make it a more clean and friendly method of payment to Joe Smith who runs a small florist in a mid size town in Washington? Time. people need to get used to crypto-currency. it's here to stay and perfectly legitimate unto itself.
I've always been a fan of Bill and Ted, however this question does not related to your career. You actually grew up next to my Dad (His name is Nick) in St. Louis/Clayton. He said your family loved television, and that he always joked your television might blow up one day. As ridiculous as that sounds apparently it actually happened to you guys one day. So did this actually happen? Is my father a liar? How much television does it take before it explodes? Wow that is some ancient history! Yes when I was five my brother and I got into a fight and someone hit the tv with their body, hard (such is the way of fraternal skirmishes, my bro and I have actually always been super close). We didn't know we had blown some of the electricals inside the TV and the next time it was turned on it exploded into flames (for real!) and burned the whole house down (totally true story!!)
What are your thoughts on other cryptocurrencies like Litecoin? I think it is early days for crypto-currency and eventually one will rule the roost. Whichever proves to be the most stable, trustworthy and provides the best ease of use.
I just hope that it's objective and that it doesn't needlessly throw BitCoin into dis-appeal. I mean, there have been other digital currencies which had been used for drugs, hitmen, child porn, whatever else. Sigh. Just don't slander it, k? <3 I totally agree with you, that's the movie :)
Are you worried about how Deep Web will portray bitcoin? Us bitcoin folks are already rather irritated about how much people make the point that bitcoin is used for illegal things, without pointing out that cash is used for the same thing. Oh we are making very very clear all the legitimate uses for Bitcoin.
Alex, do you think that Satoshi Nakamoto has any sort of link or relationship to Ross Ulbricht? Yes some people have been saying that. There are other people believed to have created Bitcoin that we are talking to.
What are your personal thoughts on the deep web and how it operates? Do you think the bit coin business model is the future of personal commerce? I do yes.
Don't you think it is a little early to start writing a story before the truth is completely released? I've been following the take down since day one and there are still so many things that haven't been answered. Absolutely. Our movie is about the Deep Web, it's not a Silk Road movie.
What do you think about Silk Road 2.0 being open? Inevitable.
Have you been able to get any key actors in Bitcoin, Silk Road etc to go on the record unanonymously? BTW...San Dimas HS football rules! Yes we have :)
I live in San Dimas. Do you know what you've done to me any time I meet people from out of town? Sorry. truly. We didn't shoot there, we shot it in Phoenix, so I never thought about San Dimas one way or the other. Until many years later I made the mistake of taking my kids to the water park there without thinking about it. Very very very VERY big mistake for "Bill" to waltz into a water park in San Dimas...
What do you think George Carlin would have said about Bitcoin and Silk Road? Link to www.youtube.com
Can you please make sure that bitcoin ends up not getting the image of "crack dollars"? I'd like if people didn't associate bitcoins with just silk road. Agree!!
Bill& Ted 3: elaborate please! We have the script and our producing team on board, in finance mode now... :)
What is socrates like in real life. A windbag.
New Idiot Box sketches on YouTube please. Burrowing Bishop, If I Had My Way, etc.etc. I think everything we shot has made its way up there :)
I have yet to ever have a question answered in an AMA, not a question but a simple acknowledgment of my existence would be fantastic. Love BnT BTW. You exist!!!
We demand a sequel to Freaked. That is all. Me too! One day... many many eons from now... it will happen...
Can you give me 3 words that will best describe the movie to me. Join our Kickstarter! :)
