Is It Time for a Refresh at the FBI? Matt Whitaker Weighs In
"This as well as the vast majority of FBI DoJ is 99%. I mean, they're tired of this. I think, you know, I've talked to them, and I know you have, well, they're just tired of this. You're right. Do we go back? Because you were sitting at the top of the ladder there. You saw some of this play out, you've known some of these players, is it time just for, I mean, down to some deputy level, it's time for a refresh at the FBI, probably at DoJ as well. And how do we make how can we encourage that to happen? Because this has gotten singing grain. Yeah. It is. I think it's also time for Congress quite frankly to exert its really one lever that it has. And that is funding. There needs to, you know, the FBI has, I think, maybe 30 agents dedicated to lobbying Congress. They are very effective at building these relationships, explaining their mission, explaining how important their mission is and how they do their mission. But when you're priorities are taking people off of violent crime, international terrorism, you know, listen, we've had 50 people in terrorist watch list try to enter our country in the last year on the southern border. You know, all of these issues, Doug. I think it's time to start having a conversation legitimate conversation about funding for the FBI and their priorities because they always come and then they ask for more money. I supported, for example, them plussing up their cyber capabilities seemed important seems sort of forward leaning. But you know, what I think they're using those resources for instead of doing the issues I just described and so many other important issues, you know, child sex trafficking and just there's a million issues, as you know, that the FBI investigates. I think they're spending way too much time on these political cases. For example, this one against Donald Trump,
Pres. Trump: The Corrupt Establishment Wants to Keep Its Power
"But listen to what Trump said about the beast as I call it, the media, the Democrats, the machine, including Liz Cheney and the January 6th committee doing everything it can to stop him.

They want to damage me in any form so that I can no longer represent the hardworking citizens of our country so that I will no longer get a 99% approval rating from cpac. 99% approval rating from cpac.
Beyonce's New Album Is Causing Controversy
"Her latest album is called renaissance. It's the first one she's released since lemonade. Remember that hoopla 6 years ago? It's causing quite a stir in the business. Remember she's saying in the Super Bowl? Oh my God. A lot of shit in the business now because of this album. A couple of singles were secretly released. I don't believe that for a second. I'm sure it was coordinated without her consent. Yeah, sure. She knew what was going on. Another pop star, kelis, and the police, my milkshake brings all the boys to the yard and they're like, it's better than yours, right? That's kelis. Kelis went on Instagram to give Beyoncé some shit. 'cause her album has 16 tracks and it pays homage to dance music and she samples some iconic hits from Donna Summer and Robin S, Robin S recently said she was thrilled to have a work included. But now everybody's thrilled. Apparently, kelis is not thrilled because milkshake was incorporated to Beyoncé's album on the 5th track called energy. So now she's speaking out to claim that the song was used without her permission. And without getting too in the weeds, let me just say the production duo of Pharrell Williams because I'm happy and if you feel all right, Pharrell Williams and his partner Chad Hugo, they're known as the neptunes. They're listed as two riders of milkshake, which was released back in 2003, and kelis is credited as a sole performer. So she and the neptunes have a long and complicated history. We don't need to know that. They worked on a first three albums in 99, 2001, 2003. Who even knew, kelis has three albums. I didn't know. But either way, it's not my world. But according to new track credits for energy that you see on Spotify and Apple music, both Pharrell Williams and Chad Hugo are listed among the numerous co writers on the song while kelis goes on mentioned. And despite not being listed in the song's credits, her involvement in renaissance was teased earlier last week after Beyoncé released an official track list naming the artists set to be sampled in each song and as a fan account on Instagram that put up the list, she repulsed the list of Beyoncé put out. And that got a response from kelis, who said that this was the first time she'd heard that her work was being used on Beyoncé's album. And she wrote in response to this fan, it's not a collaboration. It's theft. So right away, shots fired. And kelis went on to say, my mind is blown because the level of disrespect and utter ignorance of all three parties involved is astounding.
We Are 99 Days Away From the Midterm Elections...
"Are 99 days away from the midterm elections, and I am here today to warn you to tell you what not what you want to hear, but what you need to hear. I've said many times on the Charlie Kirk show podcast, we are not hopium dealers, hope and opium feels good, but it's awfully bad for you. I'm going to tell you bluntly and plainly what is happening in real time. What I'm going to tell you happening is that Republicans are messing up the inevitable red wave and tsunami with gas prices inflation, open border, CRT war on kids, pedophilia widespread, vaccine mandates, the lying and the deceit of the unpopular president, all of that is true, but guess what? Democrats are adjusting and Republicans are asleep. Despite all of this, we right now are living through a moment where Republicans are already measuring the drapes of the speaker's office, they are trying to find out what offices they'll get if they take back the Senate there is work to be done, everybody, and the numbers are not good.

90% of U.S. Gun Owners Own to Protect Their Families
"Not a good Samaritan, this guy elisha dickon is a great Samaritan. And he illustrated a very important point that the left would prefer you not know. That by and large, overwhelmingly, 99% of law abiding gun owners in America. Only own a gun to protect themselves and their families. They may be hunters, they may be marksmen, but primarily people own guns to protect their families, and thank God that Indiana's concealed carry law went into effect otherwise we would have been talking about a massacre. And given more ammo for the left to go after an all out gun grab. Which is apparently coming possibly as early as this week.

Why Are People Still Wearing COVID Masks?
"So I mentioned the masks the other day. And this is a really smart question. So this is from Oliver. It's more of a comment, but I'm going to turn it into kind of a reaction to it. Charlie, you spoke the other day about young people being scared of COVID because you saw them voluntarily wearing masks. It's not fear of COVID. It's fear of not being seen as conforming. Young people don't want to stand out anymore, or they want to be seen as being a good Democrat. I also think they like covering their face as they are most likely to be very self conscious. That's exactly right. It's super smart. I say this as a millennial who does not use social media, or I guess it could be that they're all so dumb, they think cloth masks work. Oliver. I do want to expand on this, though, is that there are people that actually find comfort and having to cover up their face. Is there's people that find comfort in having to be not having to converse and having to show facial emotions. I am not a fan of masks for the same reason I'm not a fan of the Muslim veil. I think that it's dehumanizing. I think the lord gave us a face for a reason. And especially for young children to be able to develop the necessary social cues. They say that 99% of communication is actually not in regards to the audible. It's also in regards to the facial, let's just say responses and the intricacies of how we communicate visually and not just verbally. And the fact that most young people are wearing most of the people wearing masks are young people. I think it's very telling. For a generation that has been unnecessarily told to comply under the dogma and the regime of fear, but I think the self conscious thing is very, very true.

The Left Has Destroyed the Young
"I am so interested in getting people married. That when I said Wednesday, I saw the word we D in my brain. And I'll give you one more example of how committed I am to that. I do a fireside chat every week for PragerU. It comes out on Thursdays. You've got many, many hundreds of thousands of years each week. And it's quite popular. I know it because of it's the first thing most people mention when they see me at airports are in restaurants. And each week I feature a question, a video question from someone who watches, 99% of the time it's a young person. Because most of the viewers of my fireside chat are young people. So yesterday there was older than usual, she was 31. And she was obviously very bright. And her mode of presentation of the question was very classy. And she was very attractive, a young woman. And I, in my answer to her, said, I don't know if you're married, but if you're not, I may have a guy for you. Can you imagine how shocked she's gonna be? When she sees my response, she lives in she lives in the New York, the New York City area. Oh my Friends, my Friends, when I think of young people, I can cry, I know that's a cliche. The reason things become cliches is something because they're often true. And this is a true instance. Young people, what the left has done to them, the damage is incalculable.
The Economy Is What's Driving Voters to the Polls
"Right now as it stands, Donald Trump is the FrontRunner in my mind. He's the front ready for president. I'm sick of the drama that surrounds Donald Trump because of these leftist dickies. He can't stand them. I'm sick of them crying every day about him. But at the end of the day, I still want him to be the president. Now I will say that there's people that I've talked to in the lounge and people that are Democrats and never trumpers and they said that they'll vote for desantis and they wouldn't vote for Donald Trump. I want to know what you guys think about that. We posed this question on the show before, but I really want to know what you guys think if you want to call in and give some insight. We did a poll on my YouTube channel. And I'm going to look it up so I can get the accurate and accurate number of how many people actually participated in the poll, let me see community tab, look at the poll. We did a poll, it says, who do you want? To be the chosen Republican candidate to run for president in 2024. We had a 127,000 people participate in the poll. Obviously, 100%, maybe 99% of these people are conservative. But 55% of people said they wanted Donald Trump. 40% said they wanted Ron DeSantis. We did another. We did a few other polls on here. Just so you guys could be aware of what the people are thinking, especially on the YouTube channel. And these are significant amount of people on a poll. I mean, all of these are over 100,000 people polled. One of the things was, and I know some of you guys may have comments about this. What issue do you think would drive voters to the poll most in this year's midterm election? Gun laws, apportioned economy, social issues, other. 90% of people said that the economy, inflation gas prices and stocks. 90% out of a 153,000 people, they voted that the biggest thing that's going to make them turn out in the midterms is the economy.
Is the Economy More Important Than Abortion and Gay Marriage?
"Now my guy Nick that does my videos, he's in the background, and he's saying that the economy is more important than people worrying about abortions. AKA genocide, a poll was done, and this article came from breitbart, it says that a poll was done. It was about a thousand respondents and you know how I think about polls. I don't know if there's a thousand responders or impartial in the first place. However, this poll was done in 66.2% of the respondents said that the economy is more important than abortion rights. I did a survey on my YouTube channel of close to 2 million people and what was the numbers 92% said that the economy is more important than abortion rights. Now, 99% of the people that follow me probably are conservative or at least conservative leaning. So my polls are biased and it's probably going to be about a 100,000 people that participate in that poll, but like I said, it's biased. Now the question for you, ladies and gentlemen, gentlemen, ladies, is if clarence Thomas and the Supreme Court Justice overrule the protections quote unquote of gay marriage, meaning that the states will begin to make the decision of whether or not gay marriage is acceptable. Do you think that the numbers will be just as important or just as staggering, meaning that more people would care and vote based on the economy than vote based on gay marriage?
Why the Uvalde Police Couldn't Have Prevented School Shooting
"If a person with an AR-15 is in a room of children, these children are not blocked by any kind of ballistic barrier. More than likely they're huddled in a corner as they're trained in one portion of the room. He standing and shooting hundreds of rounds into teachers and children in two classrooms, unobstructed. This has occurred before police ever arrived at the door or the hallway. I'm not the smartest man in the world. But there's a possibility and I'll tell you why the investigation believes this as well, that there's a possibility that no matter what the police responds was, at least 99% of the children that were in the room could have been completely murdered before cops ever showed up to the scene.
Sebastian Welcomes Gordon Chang of 'The Great US-China Tech War'
"He is the author of numerous works. You have to check out the most recent being the great U.S. China tech war. He is, of course, Gordon G Chang Gordon. Welcome back to America first. Thank you so much, doctor G. Gordon, let's start. Can I start with a kind of very prosaic kind of layman's question? We'll get into all the very technical and deep national security issues. But in the summer of 2022, did you expect for a nanosecond that we'd be where we are today in terms of China and America after the last two years? It seems as if just one issue. It seems as if culpability for COVID is not an issue anymore. Yes, this is astounding, because we don't know a 100% where SARS CoV-2 came from. 99% it came from a lab, but that's not a hundred. But there is something that we know 100%. And that is that Xi Jinping, the Chinese ruler, made decisions to deliberately spread this disease beyond China's borders. Now, for at least 5 weeks and maybe longer, they lied about contagiousness. They knew that this was highly transmissible human to human, but the told the world it was not. And then they pressured other countries to not protect themselves while they were locking down their own country. You put those two things together, it shows that they definitely wanted this disease beyond

A block of european countries embarked on a pretty wild experiment. They decided to get rid of all their money and replace it with a single common currency today. The euro is something we take for granted but thirty years ago. It was an extraordinary and risky idea. Twelve different countries who spoke different languages different cultures and economies all using the same paper money. Nobody was sure if it would work and yet despite the risk there were some really good reasons to try this. Is jacob goldstein. The author of money the true story of a made up thing. Jacob hiram so let's talk about the euro specifically were going to talk about the design of the paper money. But let's start with the idea of the euro itself yet. You can start that story with the fall of the berlin wall. How do you measure such an astonishing moment in history. The east german government's said tonight they were going to make more openings in the wall. At least a dozen more put bulldozers right through the wall so that more people could cross to the west east germany and west. Germany had been separate countries since the end of world war two and in nineteen ninety. Germany was about to become one country again which was in many ways a joyous moment. You know the fall of this repressive regime in east germany the reunification of families and communities but in the postwar era west germany have become an economic powerhouse and europeans. Were afraid that a united germany might be a little too strong which you know. They had some really grounded historical reasons to be worried about this kind of thing. So the president of france francois mitterrand came up with a plan. He proposed this deal with the german chancellor he said we will support a reunified germany. If you germany agree to give up your national currency and join with your neighbors in this new shared money basically. He wanted to put germany in this big european bear hook and germany said yes because who doesn't love a bear hug sure especially at european bear hug in green in the euro involved all kinds of decisions like. How do you replace all the money and the atm machines. And what is the exchange rate between the old differences and the new one and there was this one seemingly small question that took up a lot of attention. What was the new money gonna look like. That's my favorite dilemma. It's a very you question. It's a very hard question because paper. Money had been this kind of nationalistic thing. The place where a country would put pictures of their heroes and their landmarks but the point of the euro was to transcend nationalism to build this single unified europe. So if you put say the reichstag on the hundred euro note and the eiffel tower. On the fifty. The french would be like how come the germans got the hundred and we only got the fifty and then the dutch would be like at least you got the fifty. We didn't get anything on any bill. So when the architects of the euro announced a contest to design the new banknotes they added a rule no national heroes or national symbols or national landmarks. Which doesn't leave a lot of options still designers from fourteen different european central banks submitted ideas and on december thirteenth nineteen ninety-six. The head of the european monetary institute had a press conference to announce the winner. We wanted first to inform the heads of state and government About this choice because this is a choice is clearly for symbolic major symbolic significance. The winner he said was an austrian banknote designer named robert kalina. In the kalina designs there was no eiffel tower. No famous author or general or queen instead. Kalina chose the most inoffensive symbols imaginable. The design emphasizes remain architectural elements windows gateways and bridges the metaphors right themselves. You know openness connection exactly what you want at this moment. When a big chunk of europe was joining together to use a single kind of money for the first time since the roman empire and for the metaphors to work they had to make sure these inoffensive symbols didn't represent a particular country. So the pictures on the bills weren't actual windows and gateways and bridges. They were pretend. Bridges imaginary gateways. The images on the paper money were supposed to exude european-ness but not spanish nece or frenchness or german das. Everything went fine with the windows and gateways. The problem was the bridges. The person who figured out that the problem was the bridges was a bridge. Loving british journalist named russ swan. He was the editor of a magazine. Called bridge design and engineering. I talked to him recently and he told me that of course. He was delighted to learn that. Pretend bridges we're going to feature prominently on europe's new money. We are the rich people and using our thing that thing and you know. That's so russ figured he would do a little story for his magazine about the paper money. He requested a press pack with pictures of the bills. This was the mid nineties you know the web was just getting going and the euro people send him pictures the bridges on the bills. Go in chronological order. So the oldest bridges are on the smallest bills. It's like a little tour through architectural history. And as russ's looking at these pictures the first thing that catches his eye is the five hundred euro note. Which is the biggest bill and the most modern bridge. The five hundred euro has a cable stayed bridge. It's a modern style bridge where there these straight cables holding up most of the structure. It's graphically very striking and lovely again. This is supposed to be a generic example of abridge not a real landmark but russ notice something wrong with this supposedly fake bridge. It looked like a grid had been to visit six seven weeks earlier in in northern france. It's called the the pond nominee normandy bridge. And i thought i i. I think that's the normandy. I think that's i think that's not the fictitious structure that the european union have said it was so there are a lot of cable stayed bridges and they all kind of look like this. But i don't eat the bridge at the science are these pillars. And there's this one spot where you'd expect to see a pillar but there is no pillar and it's drew upon normandy and it's also true.

He's a huge like they just can't financially support the infrastructure to protect against it. So it's i mean it's a complex problem in. There are all kinds of things driving it. So i think it's an interesting conversation but i understand why we're here and the challenges of I don't. I don't know how we're not here. I think i think it's about. How do we protect resiliency. And understand the interdependencies better. So that one service doesn't kill another one and again we're back to talking about failure. Domains right blast radiuses. Those things we talked about for years and years is just a different context. I think though that part of this is driven like what you're talking about. Their yvonne is part of this is driven out of complexity. And like i was just talking to somebody who's going to start up. And they said our idea of our startup is we're going to do network. We're gonna do network on a campus without all the complexity of routing protocol. And i didn't say anything but of course i was like Yeah we'll see how that turns out because kuba needs actually started with the same mindset to write that we're going to get rid of routing protocols to make things simpler and in the end what they built was so hard to deal with that people are now starting to put routing protocols back in the communities because it's simpler but this this drives back to the whole concept of being the trash can of the internet all the stuff we just throw things out there and make things so complex for ourselves and then we wind because things are complex. Well i like this this idea. And the article about The concept of using public cloud is inseparable from trusting your cloud provider. I think it shows the you basically have to do those things at the same time. You have to trust them if you're going to use them and that comes back to the economies of scale conversation that we're having if you have one thing that works then you just keep using that one thing that works and then as it gets as it gets bigger it gets apparently better at solving your problem and then i think that as things consolidate than we we come into now where we have all these dependencies as seems like a sort of inexorable thing that's going to happen just wonder if there's a way to break it apart or it's this is just how just just how it works and is it possible to have multiple failure to mainz in this environment or they just intertwined. I think the gogo article that. Tom just reference is very critical. Because as you said you know you you convoy this. Because internet consolidation centralization has its benefits it is useful and striped on cost and is actually saver full for love small businesses as well but It's just that when we use these kinds of launch scout network. We also have to maintain this kind of skepticism towards them. Because i i my problem. Is that when..

"Weinstein story. Ronan farrow was doing a story on harvey weinstein. Who is accused of sexually harassing women in the hollywood movie industry. While his investigation uncovered that harvey weinstein had hired black cube to spy on his victims that he sexually assaulted to try to find information on them. And discredit them. Somehow weinstein discovered that ronan farrow was working on this story and hired black cube to also spy on pharaoh to try to discredit him too eager realized that he was wrapped up in all this and that yeah he was actually working for harvey weinstein. I felt very being sent to surveillance journalists. Because you know these publications that i respect the new yorker and the new york times i've ever eaten the new york so high school was very. It was a very important thing in my life. Like i enjoyed the. I thought it's very you know. It's a very good informative paper I always thought it's a cool motto. All the news. That's fit the print. So i felt uneasy and in my mind i was thinking to have to follow through with this. But i think what we're doing could potentially be a negative thing because i i was told that our job was to ascertain sources and they knew the for looking for sources of the different journalists into different publications. Either you know it's could be used to scoop them but it could also be probably used to basically killed a story or damage in some way already knew that we're working for a company. That's a little bit iffy kind of was on guard but they went through with an anyways and they said okay. whatever. I'll continue low problem week. We we continue to work together. We were doing other jobs for black and I tried to contact law enforcement with very little success. I tried to get advice from friends who knew people in law enforcement and like nothing panned out of it so at some point default. There was no outlet for me to go to to kind of expose this problem of private intelligence company following journalists for a rapist to be able to kill their story. And i decided to call ronan farrow. So i contacted the pharaoh and we met up and they said have been following georgia. Kantha was assigned to follow you. Wow to be assigned to spy on ronan farrow but then completely flip and actually call ronin to tell him that you're spying on him. That must've been some meeting. As the to talked. Ronin did confirm. He was receiving a lot of spam taxed and ego. Explain that's how they knew where he was so rolling fair. I thought i was gonna talk to him and say. Hey we followed you your hunches. Ride careful black. Cube seemed like bad people. Nice to meet you. good luck. Maybe next time. If i receive sign the book that you wrote what his book and he says i'm writing a book about this weinstein thing. You want to stay in touch and can help me. I said okay. i'll help you. Ucla seemed like a nice guy. He convinced me a little bit. Then i it's a very noble cause so this is how ebor sort of switched sides. One day doing dirty work for harvey weinstein and the next helping journalists like ronan farrow out after the after meeting with farrell. I'm talking to shapiro. The clinton i'm sharing information of what work on doing with hake for black cube. And i mean i'm sharing with him almost like immediately whenever i have something for black cube share with pharrell. He tries to figure out if this is relevant to him or something. He's working down or whatever. One day in january. I get in on with hakin. And hakin tells me that he has to cover a job for black cube but can't make it because he has plans with his daughter and i said hey you know i'm free i you know it's it's an evening job or whatever. It's a late after job. I said if you want the phillips for you know it's a very important job. I have to be there by selfish. We'll why don't you told klein. you'll go there with me and when you have to leave you go hang out with your daughter and i'll go and i'll stay in your place and we. We agree on this plan. We head into the city so the peninsula hotel and hakin tells be the agent will be there you already. He's the guy that you saw less. Somber that wears a golden plus. That's basically kind of how you described. Because they didn't use names they. They never told the names. There were very secret about that. And i said okay. I know that i've seen him multiple times. I said okay. Roman i recognize who you're talking about. Then he showed me a picture of john scotrail. -ten you said this is the so. This is who is going to be at the meeting. Who blood cuba start. Oh john scott rail raritan gs are is the target. That name is very familiar. Actually inducted episode. Seventy nine called dark basin. I interviewed john. Scott tend to hear about how a private intelligence company tried to hack and steal information from certain targets. John works for citizen lab and does investigative work to try to uncover hacking campaigns and of course when he published this work those companies he exposes probably get pretty mad for having their cover blown. Jason in citizen lab does amazing investigative. Work but still. I'm surprised that he's being targeted by black cube. Oh man this is just getting deeper. Well we've got a call j. Sr now to find out what happens what happened is one of my colleagues was usually pushed by somebody who claim to be interested in financial solutions in banking for refugees. Which is really important problem if you're refugee and you flee conflict you probably don't flee with access to your bank account and so this is a huge problem issues face. My colleague was extremely sympathetic to this issue agrees as to a meeting. Meese this guy and what the guy really wants to do is not talk about refugees in banking but to quiz my colleague on his background his family his family history and then ask questions about the citizen lab and my colleague. Rosa very thoughtful. Smart guy immediately recognized that something was amiss. Played it cool. And then as soon as he left for meeting called me up and said look something really strange is going on here. I think i was the target of some kind of an operation so immediately after this happened at the lab we began trying to figure out who did. Pardon me with was this guy. Didn't take long for us to determine the digital identity that the guy had created was almost paper thin there was like accommodation address somewhere in spain. Some company flame tag but it all looked fake and this gave us the impression that we were looking at some kind of an operative some kind of an agent again ask ourselves so who would. Who would do this and going through the questions that he asked the heart seemed like the main objective was learning about citizen labs work and then potentially finding something that could be used against the lab maybe to discredit our work as we were moving on with our medication. We got in touch with a reporter. And well you know we should really interesting story. Researchers working on nso targeted by this kind of like.

What they can get out from blockchain based technologies and how they can create meaningful products with blockchain to discuss the topic. I invited feted. Spencer from any volk analytics. Hey freddie. I'm glad you're with us today so i start. What led you to blockchain. So basically i studied computer science business and that's more than twenty years ago but the thing is why i mentioned is that i always like to work on the building bridges between different compartments. Are you know science studies. Whatever network as a project manager internet agency for almost two years as the head of project management than the internal consulting education and stuff like that so it was always like translating save agency. Translating the marketing requirements into developers Can prevent whatever and online shop or website. Or something like that. And i guess you could say that this is sort of an also too much in that the actual one was my co founder. Peter in twenty fifteen and told me auditorium and like this is a cryptocurrency is good made make fiat Obsolete ambience great vision and all on. I got interested. And i want a couple of coins and basically just seeing coats and do we got to find on rabbit hole as a say in the year and reading more learning more about it fascination grew and so this was eating out my my evenings and nights and everything in life was sort of like well you know can be. It can talk on something else and things like that eventually in two thousand eighteen. I did the jump and said okay gonna do full-time crypto. Always a great experience with making my hobby. My job right. So that's one of the dream come. True trump basically. If you can do what you love to do to pay it. So and that's what i did and taking the jump and basically what fascinates me about blockchain is again that is bridging a lot of different disciplines and means different things one. If people give the economic things could be speculation financial assets could be technology agrees society change be making the better place because the losing potential south is higher than the north. It's just i. I liked to compare to the internet and the ninety s is like what is the internet and back then. There was a difficult question. Maybe someone answer and you can have a website. Their emails of analogy no more against the giants of this world came out of it and having business models that nobody ever dreamed of potential marching. And that's basically making fascination thank you. That's an amazing journey. You have the skills to understand. High-profile technologies like blockchain. Because you have the background in set technologies but for those who didn't how would you explain and this is like the more general question that anyone can get. I guess what blockchain case and what it can do for you as a business so. The obvious answer is to answer the for blockages ledger technology. So alleger where facts are noted. Let's put it most journal way possible. And it is saved a lot of different places and all participants of this network agreed on this on the state of that information which means also that. It is always complete the orders. The same order which is in in bookkeeping accountants would be great and understanding blockchain's the always the sole disagreement network much like the internet servers. Talk to each other and then recording append only information so they can never be any deletion. What is occasions. So there has been consensus reached and this high-tech and there's different technologies. Actually there is not one much of many different blockchain's because it's a nascent technology and the standard as we know it it's on the internet is not there yet so racist open which one's gonna be the predominant standard and the two to come back to businesses. Is that like i said with the internet. The use cases are pretty much limitless. Or i think all the begin. Think about maori. Or i in the process of developing is just the tip of the iceberg.
