Our Private Data is Getting LEAKED!
By Simply Bitcoin
Join us in discussing why KYC & AML are a total scam used to control you. One of the major problems with KYC is that your personal information can be leaked. For example, a secret terrorist watchlist with 1.9 million records was leaked. Furthermore, T-Mobile released that data related to over 100 million people has also been leaked. Including the leak of social security numbers.
Afghans running to banks to withdraw all their money and attempt to flee Kabul… over the last few days Afghani currency completely falls to new record levels. Even the guy that runs the central bank, fled the country. If these people had Bitcoin, they wouldn’t have to worry about this and could’ve left a lot faster.
XSurge has been hacked… just another sh*tcoin. Over $4 million was sent to hacker’s address. This was a reentrancy-based price manipulation attack. Previous to this hack, XSurge promised no possibilities of a hack… listen to us and don’t trust the sh*tcoins!

OVER $4M HAS BEEN SENT TO THIS
In the same tweet XSurge noted that it had been a backdoor exploit, meaning normal processes had been bypassed. The team also tried to quell fears of a further attack by explaining that SurgeUSD and SurgeETH do not withdraw BNB and therefore cannot be exploited in the same manner.

Bank run in Afghanistan
Afghanistan’s currency extended losses to a record low as the departure of the acting central bank governor added to political turmoil weighing investor sentiment.
The Afghani fell as much as 4.6% on Tuesday to 86.0625 per dollar, a fourth day of decline, according to data compiled by Bloomberg. The central bank was told there would be no more dollar shipments on Friday, which curtailed its ability to supply currency and led to more panic, acting Governor Ajmal Ahmady wrote in a Twitter thread. https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articl…

Anti-money laundering: The world’s least effective policy experiment? Together, we can fix it
This paper uses anti-money laundering as a case study to illustrate the benefits of cross-disciplinary engagement when major policymaking functions develop separately from public policy design principles. It finds that the anti-money laundering policy intervention has less than 0.1 percent impact on criminal finances, compliance costs exceed recovered criminal funds more than a hundred times over, and banks, taxpayers and ordinary citizens are penalized more than criminal enterprises. https://www.tandfonline.com/doi/full/…
