#EXPOSE: #Blockchain HUGE 21st Century #Hoax - Here's Why...

"SPECIAL CLIENT REPORT"
January 24,2018



Complete Utter Hogwash! 

But, proves that ole smelly stuff, still baffles brains. 

The key to this massive hoax is, firstly, revealed at the point of data capture; in terms of the nature of information or transactions being collected in each block. Irrespective of any value-audit at the point of data capture, it goes without saying, that the value of any information or transaction; anywhere on this planet is constantly changing -  in fact, the laws of thermodynamics  support the reality of physical and abstract value fluidity through-out the universe and on this planet, largely because;  on  the whole, it is over time moving towards chaos, or for that matter, a ZERO VALUE condition under the second law of thermodynamics. Thus, the even the most complete, accurate and objective value audit is only somewhat meaningful just at the point of initial data capture.

"If it is too good to be true; it probably is... '

Leading to another massive hole in this  concept, in that there is also  nothing in this technology that provides for an on-going optic or measurement of the transaction or information values collected and contained  in any of the chained blocks within the chain (i.e. there is no innate or inside the block value thermometer) beyond the point of data capture - so by the time you go to open the block, some decades from now, ( or even next week) you could most likely find that there is actually little or nothing of any value there - which should come as no surprise to anyone, because we live on a finite planet that has less aggregate value with each passing moment, as its non-renewable resources are being concurrently depleted with growing populations. The opened empty block  would hence, conform as expected, with both the laws of the universe and noted planetary constraints.

In other words, you would have to insanely absurd  to think that you can defeat the physical universal laws and constraints of the planet with the high technology of mere snake-oil semantics, software-programming and mathematics, combined with zealous criminal propaganda - seeking bigger fools happy to buy your next invisible tulip bulb created and marketed with unlimited abundance???

So, as Shakespeare once prolifically remarked, "A fraud by any other name; would still be a ..." Hmm...

We would be pleased to hear any and all thoughts or comments on this short expose; particularly from anyone who still believes in such mystical software technologies - which clearly amount to being cleverly-disguised, high-tech schemes built by "Financial Wizards of Oz," aiming  to pillage the bank accounts of the innocent and trusting millions and their incompetent governments.

If you remain in doubt about about the perpetrators or nature of this hoax - have a look at their financial statementswhat is really interesting is how they convert their blockchain monopoly money (Bitcoin) into US dollars.   Surprised?

P.S.  Rarely do we ever agree with Paul Krugman, N.Y. Times; however, in this case, there is no doubt we share the similar belief in open, honest and fair financial dealings to uphold the substance and integrity of the economic system against fraud or other criminal abuses.

Earth's Future At Risk As Great Apes Face Extinction

Four out of six great apes one step away from extinction – IUCN Red List


Today’s IUCN Red List update also reports the decline of the Plains Zebra due to illegal hunting, and the growing extinction threat to Hawaiian plants posed by invasive species. Thirty eight of the 415 endemic Hawaiian plant species assessed for this update are listed as Extinct and four other species have been listed as Extinct in the Wild, meaning they only occur in cultivation.
The IUCN Red List now includes 82,954 species of which 23,928 are threatened with extinction.
Mammals threatened by illegal hunting

The Eastern Gorilla (Gorilla beringei) – which is made up of two subspecies - has moved from Endangered to Critically Endangered due to a devastating population decline of more than 70% in 20 years. Its population is now estimated to be fewer than 5,000. Grauer’s Gorilla (G. b. graueri), one subspecies of Eastern Gorilla – has lost 77% of its population since 1994, declining from 16,900 individuals to just 3,800 in 2015. 



Realty Check: The Whole Economic System Is On Welfare


Central Banks = Welfare for the Wealthy

Central banks can only do one thing, and that's provide monetary welfare for the wealthy.

The fact that central banks provide welfare for the wealthy is now entering the mainstream. The fact that all central bank policies since 2008 have dramatically increased wealth and income inequality is now grudgingly being accepted as reality by mainstream economists and the financial media.
The central banks' PR facade of noble omniscience on behalf of the great unwashed masses has cracked wide open. Even The Wall Street Journal is publishing critiques of Federal Reserve policies that suggest the Fed has no idea how the U.S. economy actually works because their policies have failed to help the bottom 95%.

Suncor Energy Seeks Permission to Abandon Some Oil-Sands Assets

Suncor Energy Inc., SU -0.58 % Canada’s largest oil producer, is in talks with government officials for permission to “strand,” or abandon, some high cost and greenhouse gas-intensive crude-oil deposits, the company’s chief executive said Wednesday. The Calgary-based company is seeking an easing of rules designed to maximize oil-sands production from leases on government land, CEO Steve Williams said at a Barclays BCS -0.66 % energy conference in New York, reiterating a strategy he first announced in July. “We’ve begun to have conversations with the government of Alberta and the current regulators about the design of their policy, which actually requires the maximum amount of resource to be extracted regardless of the economic or environmental value,” he said. The request comes as Suncor and other oil producers struggle to cut costs...

  Top Global Bonds Manager Positioning For Higher Rates


Unusual move sees manager Richard Woolnough protect £15 billion M&G Optimal Income fund from high bond prices and rising inflation.



Woolnough moves to 'negative duration' on UK bonds

The country’s leading bond manager, Richard Woolnough, has moved to ‘negative duration’ on UK debt for the first time in response to the rising threat of inflation and the surge in bond prices since the EU referendum.
Expressed in years, duration is the measure used to show a bond fund’s sensitivity to interest rate changes.
The current overall duration  for  Woolnough's  15 Billion M&G Optimal Income fund is currently at a low 2.6 years, reflecting the view that interest rates in the developed world are expected to slowly rise following the first increase in US rates at the end of last year.




Rigged Stock Markets Won't Signal Economic Collapse


These are the signs of an economic collapse

What does the beginning of an economic collapse look like?
Do you see grocery stores closing? Do you see other retailers, like clothing stores and department stores, going out of business?
Are there shuttered storefronts along your Main Street shopping district, where you bought a tool from the hardware store or dropped off your dry cleaning or bought fruits and vegetables?
Are you making as much money annually as you did 10 years ago?



Future Grid Electricity Cannot Rely On Intermittent Renewables



Many people are hoping for wind and solar PV to transform grid electricity in a favorable way. Is this really possible? Is it really feasible for intermittent renewables to generate a large share of grid electricity? The answer increasingly looks as if it is, “No, the costs are too great, and the return on investment would be way too low.” We are already encountering major grid problems, even with low penetrations of intermittent renewable electricity: US, 5.4% of 2015 electricity consumption; China, 3.9%; Germany, 19.5%; Australia, 6.6%.
In fact, I have come to the rather astounding conclusion that even if wind turbines and solar PV could be built at zero cost, it would not make sense to continue to add them to the electric grid in the absence of very much better and cheaper electricity storage than we have today. There are too many costs outside building the devices themselves. It is these secondary costs that are problematic. Also, the presence of intermittent electricity disrupts competitive prices, leading to electricity prices that are far too low for other electricity providers, including those providing electricity using nuclear or natural gas. The tiny contribution of wind and solar to grid electricity cannot make up for the loss of more traditional electricity sources due to low prices.

ALERT: Top Global #Bonds Manager Positioning For Higher Rates


Unusual move sees manager Richard Woolnough protect £15 billion M&G Optimal Income fund from high bond prices and rising inflation.




Woolnough moves to 'negative duration' on UK bonds

The country’s leading bond manager, Richard Woolnough, has moved to ‘negative duration’ on UK debt for the first time in response to the rising threat of inflation and the surge in bond prices since the EU referendum.
Expressed in years, duration is the measure used to show a bond fund’s sensitivity to interest rate changes.

The current overall duration  for  Woolnough's  15 Billion M&G Optimal Income fund is currently at a low 2.6 years, reflecting the view that interest rates in the developed world are expected to slowly rise following the first increase in US rates at the end of last year.
Rising interest rates are bad for fixed interest bonds as they make their returns look unattractive. Rates also tend to rise when inflation is increasing, which erodes the fixed returns from bonds. An inflation or interest rate ‘shock’ can cause bond prices to fall quickly, as in 1994 when an unexpected series of US interest rate rises caused the bonds market to temporarily collapse and hit confidence in broader stock market.

Tax Office data shows that unpaid tax obligations are expected to reach 7.618 billion euros from January to July. Each month, foreclosures increase while more tax payers are crushing under the burden as they enter the state’s “black” list.

Equity valuations between Japanese and European banks will converge with quantitative easing (QE) programs and negative interest rate policies set to continue for the long term, according to a team at JPMorgan.


With euro-area inflation stuck near zero for almost two years and Brexit now threatening to undercut the region’s recovery, economists see European Central Bank President Mario Draghi as highly likely to lengthen quantitative easing for a second time. That would take the asset-buying program beyond its current end-date of March 2017 and above the target of 1.7 trillion euros ($1.9 trillion).
