F**k Privacy. Facebook’s Terrifying New Lawyer is an Architect of NSA Mass Surveillance

By CCN.com: Don’t believe what Mark Zuckerberg tells you. Facebook is not remotely interested in protecting your privacy. The company just hired Jennifer Newstead as general counsel, a lawyer widely cited as co-writer of the Patriot Act, famously granting unprecedented snooping powers to the US government.  In other words, the architect of NSA mass surveillance now has the keys to the world’s biggest store of personal data on the planet. This should terrify all of us. Facebook promoted the lawyer that authored the Patriot Act to chief council. This law damages our civil liberties to this very day, so it’s

Is Bitcoin Fundamentally Incapable of Mass Adoption? The Economist Thinks So

An article out today in the Economist lists several reasons why Bitcoin may never have a “long-lasting” recovery. The unnamed author writes, in part: “The bust has been correspondingly brutal. Those who bought near the top were left with one of the world’s worst-performing assets. Cryptocurrency startups fired employees; banks shelved their products. On March 14th the CBOE said it would soon stop offering Bitcoin futures.” He or she neglects to mention that Bitcoin has previously been one of the best performing assets as well. An interesting point to make: Bitcoin over the past three years has been the best

I think we should definitely do it to accelerate mass adoption.

Now I give 5 satoshis to everyone

for free and without any conditions.

I have even created the twitter account: twitter.com/GiverOfBitcoin

So anyone may instantly start using and learning Bitcoin without any initial investment.

So anyone can play with these 5 satoshis a lot, moving their satoshis through different LN wallets.

Fortunately, Bitcoin LN payments are as fast as lightning and free!

(And scanning QR-codes and sharing satoshis with others are the purest fun.)

Here is the whole list of LN mobile wallets, lightningnetworkstores.com/wallets

For absolute newcomers there is the article on Medium:

(how to easily to create your first Bitcoin LN invoice)

Indeed, I think, now even 1 satoshi is enough to start using Bitcoin and to learn a lot about Bitcoin.

Since even the smallest amount (1 satoshi) shows anyone what is possible with Bitcoin right now and it is just amazing.

7 000 000 000 (people)*1(sat) = 7 000 000 000 satoshis = 70 bitcoins

So all we need is just 70 bitcoins in total for the whole world to really accelerate mass adoption to the max.

There may be multiple points of giving away.

Your thoughts?

Updated:

Thanks to everyone!

I need more retweets.

Please go on twitter and do more retweets so more newcomers will know about this possibility.

Binance Argues JPMorgan’s Dubious Crypto Project Will Spur Real Adoption In a new article from Binance Research, one of the world’s largest cryptocurrency exchanges deems JPM Coin a “stepping stone” toward mass adoption. By exposing large clients to a private blockchain structure, JPMorgan will indirectly increase interest in the wider crypto industry. “The rise of this third generation of stablecoins may only be an intermediate stepping stone for cryptocurrency mass adoption. Stablecoins running on private blockchains will contribute to increasing
