I love a good caper, and these young guys pulled off a great one

Two South African brothers and Bitcoins Worth $3.6 Billion Have Vanished
Africrypt, a cryptocurrency investment firm in South Africa, run by two brothers — CEO Raees Cajee and COO Ameer Cajee — is under global scrutiny right now after up to $3.6 billion (roughly Rs. 26,700 crores) worth of Bitcoin disappeared from it. What's even more shocking is that there is no trace of the two brothers who ran the firm, that included even celebrity investors.

The two brothers, then, implored cryptocurrency investors not to alert the police about the matter, adding doing that might jeopardise the recovery of the “stolen” digital coins worth $3.6 billion from the company's wallet. The company website is not operational either.

Twenty-one-year-old Raees and 17-year-old Ameer are nowhere to be found... The last communication to investors from Cajee brothers came on April 13.

I don't know about you, but when I hear the phrase 'African cryptocurrency', I think 'buy buy buy!'

I wonder which celebrities invested in this scam and for what reason.

Deep Dive into the source of food and commodity prices, that keep going up
https://theconservativetreehouse.com/bl ... ve-created

The bottom line issue is the national supply (in this example ‘harvest/yield’) is not driving the national price, because the supply is now controlled by massive multinational corporations...................

Expanding the federal subsidy(food stamps) for food purchases is part of the corporate profit dynamic.

With increased taxpayer subsidies, the food price controllers can charge more domestically and export more of the product internationally. Taxes, via subsidies, go into their profit margins. The corporations then use a portion of those enhanced profits in contributions to the politicians. It’s a circle of money..................

The process of charging the U.S. consumer more for a product, that under normal national market conditions would cost less, is a process called exfiltration of wealth. This is the basic premise, the cornerstone, behind the catch-phrase ‘globalism’...............

highlighted in the example of taxpayers subsidizing the food sector (EBT, SNAP etc.), the corporations can charge U.S. consumers more. Ex. more beef is exported, red meat prices remain high at the grocery store, but subsidized U.S. consumers can better afford the high prices.

Of course, if you are not receiving food payment assistance (middle-class) you can’t eat the steaks because you can’t afford them. (Not accidentally, it’s the same scheme in the ObamaCare healthcare system)

Wallstreetbets is saying China housing crash, time to make $$$$$$$$$$$$$$
https://www.reddit.com/r/wallstreetbets ... _ewh_mchi/

Ok stfu so how do I make some fuckkkinn $$$$$???
Based on my DD, I am taking up bear positions on:

ASHR: Shenzhen / Shanghai A-Share ETF - Direct exposure to Chinese Stocks

EWH: Hong Kong Index ETF - A lot of Chinese companies list here due to better liquidity

MCHI: China broad ETF - A catch all ETF for Chinese exposure

WYNN: An overleveraged 116% debt-to-equity US headquartered Casino where over 50% of its revenues come from Macau China in midst of a gambling crackdown and potential recessionary implosion (This is affected by consumer discretionary sector swings)

Others: See image below

I've been saying for years that the housing market has been artificially kept up... if this is the first domino to fall, if it is true that is. If this is true, I expect to see the first "sacrifice" to keep things going is the pension system.

Crypto Crash ?

China made Crypto illegal, I suspect most nations are going to be rolling out their own crypto fiat currencies.
They will crush the private Crypto.

The portfolio was funded with about $390 and the hamster's trades are automatically made in 20 euro increments. As of Friday, the hamster has profits of 77 euros and its portfolio has hit a high of almost $580.

Currently, the hamster holds Ether, Tron and Ripple's XRP.

Moving on, Republican Sen. Pat Toomey - the committee's Republican ranking member - waxed poetic about profligate spending by Congress, prompting Yellen to retort that there's nothing more damaging to the dollar and its reputation than failing to raise the debt ceiling. Toomey also discussed the 'FedCoin' - the stablecoin being explored by the Fed - saying he would be a fan of it...but insisted that "we shouldn't design a digital dollar that allows the Fed to spy on Americans' every transaction.

Here is comes - do what we say or you won't be allows to get paid or spend money.

For fuck sake - how can anyone at the top think this is a good idea.

I'm sorry, Carl, but it looks like you exceeded your government authorized limit on booze and hookers for the year - we're restricting your FedCoin Account...

Don't play their game in this case, play the game...

Use the currency, deposit it into a bank account as USD, remove it via cash, then go to your bank and deposit the cash. They can't trace without a warrant.

There's going to be no cash - FedCoin is Uncle Sam's proposed crypto.
