What is, anymore? 

They have eyes in the sky watching entire cities, and once they find you on that grid, they can track every move you make. Of course, WE empowered them with that technology.

Yes, private, but not totally un-traceable.  ( at least not that i have seen )

not only that... once they find you on the grid, they have infinite "rewind" of the video (ISR).  they map the path you took to get where you caught their attention. AI is used to "cursor" you from then on.

That is why we have monero.  So far, its not been broken.

Not just the crypto itself but the payment networks. There's a lot involved and not everyone has the same objectives. Some people do want all payments to be anonymous and untraceable, and that's worth pursuing. Others just want to establish a stable international currency that no one has the power to manipulate or inflate.

I'm in the latter camp. I would eagerly switch to a currency that the government can't simply print more of. (Yes I know, commodities ... but they're not stable.)

I support both really. 

None of the government's business what i buy/sell.  And since they cant properly manage fiat ...

That is, in my opinion, the more important part. The value of crypto as a commodity is, from what I've heard, currently suffering from a crash. I don't really care, because the get-rich-quick stuff doesn't interest me. I just want control of the fiat out of the hands of the governments.

The quick rich crowd about ruined crypto.

And speaking of, having issues with the current wallet i use, its not picking up recent transactions ( which i have validated on the blockchain, they happened, and they didnt get stolen back out ) .. So going to change.   But, opinions on import /vs/ sweep are welcome.

 

( and ya, did the typical refresh, reload, even a new install on a 2nd machine.. no luck.)

Linux foundation is wanting to create some 'universal open crypto wallet thing'. Just in time for crypto to be banned, except for government controlled ones.

I wouldn't worry about it. Successful open source projects happen by accident.
The ones that are created with the intention of being huge end up orphaned in the Apache Foundation (the OSS equivalent of being acquired by Attachmate or Micro Focus).

Told ya.. its coming.  Federally controlled crypto:   https://www.investopedia.com/inside-the-new-white-house-framework-for-regulating-digital-assets-6674517

"and laws against unlicensed money transmitting" 

Will be mandated by the time this term is over.

"Federal Reserve Chair, Jerome Powell has said many times that the main reason for digital currency under a central bank would be to eliminate the need for cryptocurrency."

LOL, did you know that that's what the cryptos are saying about you?

We already have "digital" currency. It's called Visa and MasterCard, and the ability for Bad People to abuse payment systems is already well-known enough to demonstrate why all currency should move to crypto. Central banks and fiat holders cannot and must not be trusted.

"Cash Is King" and will continue to be until secure, digital, *anonymous* payment systems go mainstream.

Enter my problem with crypto: don't we have to assume it all is? The ledger works based on this voting system. What guards it from sybil attack? Who controls most of the ledger? How do we really know it isn't China?

I dont think it is at this point. Or they would not be so hell bent on eradicating it.

From the point of view of anonymous/non-fiat currency, the US government and the China government are considered equally bad actors. Might as well throw in the IMF and all of the other central and commercial banks.
