Anti-Government Insurance, Crowdfunded Whistleblowing & Assassination Markets
Anti-Government Insurance, Crowdfunded Whistleblowing & Assassination Markets by Chris Campbell – LFB.org
“The thing I especially like about cryptocurrencies,” IT security specialist Pavol Luptak said yesterday in Part One of our interview, “is that their future does not depend on the opinions of democratic masses or politicians. The potential for intervention is highly limited.”
Today, he’ll talk about the consequent rise of, whether they are happily embraced or not, a whole host of worm-filled cans, bursting at their tops. Wild things like assassination markets, crowdfunded whistleblowing and even anti-government insurance.
Most importantly, Luptak will provide us with some actionable steps anyone can take to capitalize on the burgeoning crypto-scape.
Before we get to that, though, here’s a little recap of yesterday’s conversation, in case you missed it.
The mainstreaming of dark marketeering
Although governments will still have control over the physical world, said Luptak, thanks to decentralization and anonymity, they’ll lose what little control they have today over the virtual world.
Most people will switch over to the decentralized anonymous virtual markets not out of principle, but because everything will be far cheaper.
“No taxes, no expenses related to government regulations — prices in the cryptoanarchy world may be 30-50% lower than in the case of the government-regulated e-shops.”
We’ll gain liberty in the virtual world, but will likely continue to fight an uphill battle in the physical world.
“Governments,” Luptak said, “will lose their ability to tax businesses in the global virtual world. They’ll need to cover this loss. I think that property taxes will be significantly increased in the future.”
And, of course, there will be victims along the way. People will step over that thin “red line,” get snagged and made an example of. (See: Ross Ulbricht)
Now that you’re all caught up, here’s Part Two of our interview.
Part Two: Assassination markets, crowdfunded whistleblowing, anti-government insurance and more…
CC: As a result of this transition, you believe some really interesting things will take place. For example, you’ve made predictions about crowdfunded whistleblowing which will incentivize government leaks, anonymous prediction markets, anti-government insurance and even assassination markets.
