"Corey Smith at the kcbs editor's desk and with more news here's brat. Patty, data from the European Union shows that Twitter took longer to review hateful content and removed less of it in 2022 compared with the previous year. Twitter wasn't alone. Most other tech companies signed up to the voluntary analysis, also scored worse, but the figures could foreshadow trouble for Twitter and complying with the EU's tough new online rules after owner Elon Musk fired many of the platform's 7500 full-time workers and an untold number of contractors responsible for content, moderation, and other crucial tasks. There are a number of things being blamed on Brexit, after all, it's been a bumpy 6 years since the UK voted to leave the European Union and a growing number of Britain are blaming that exit on current economic woes. Here's quesadillas Jim Taylor. The British economy is in tatters. The United Kingdom is suffering quite heavily from the rising gas prices in the wake of the Russian invasion of Ukraine together with more broadly the inflation that's been generated in the post COVID environment. John Curtis Professor of politics university of strathclyde in Scotland, a leading British expert on polling. Voters are now more pessimistic about the economic consequences of Brexit. He points to the latest polls that show only 12% of the public think Brexit was a good thing. What the figure was, little more than a year ago. He says younger people in particular would just assume rejoin the EU, Jim Taylor, here's a sign of the times, Netflix is considering ending its DVD rental business. Butler says the number of people renting the disks has fallen dramatically since the company started service in 1998. Netflix was the first company to rent DVDs through the mail. At its peak, Netflix had something like 16 million subscribers to the DVD by mail business. And currently the estimate is something like 1 million to maybe one and a half million people rent DVDs through Netflix. Carnegie Mellon university professor Mike Smith says that's not a small number, but the company has more than 200 million customers streaming worldwide. I think it means they've been incredibly successful at transitioning their business from renting out DVDs to a streaming platform. Smith thinks the mail rentals don't hurt Netflix, but he says the company does have some challenges. Are they going to be satisfied with continuing to do movies? Are they going to expand how well is their gaming side of the house going to expand? And can it still compete with other streaming platforms like Disney ABC and HBO Max? But butler, kcbs. Cities, counties school districts and law enforcement agencies across the state are going to get millions of dollars in state funding to crack down on the illegal sale of tobacco to minors.

EU nations work on rift over gas price cap as cold sets in
"European Union and energy ministers have met at an emergency meeting on gas prices as winter approaches EU nations have not been able to agree on the question of gas prices, which are expected to skyrocket the soaring prices are a result of Russia's war in Ukraine with Moscow slashing gas supplies to all the European nations critical of Russia's actions. The meeting was focused on trying to break a deadlock between countries like Greece, Spain and France who want to cap on prices to ease household bills, and those like Germany and Netherlands that are insisting a price cap could cut supplies. Estonia's minister of economic affairs Leonard believes the price cap is necessary, but it is a tricky balance. I understand that we have kind of a long way and it is a real proposal on the table, but still the security of supply is paramount if the price is too high, we can compensate. We need to compensate. But we can not threaten the security of supply. I'm Karen Chammas

"And I'm Bruce Allen, Andrew allsbrook says our producer, the top story we're following for you this morning. President Biden is pledging the world will assist Poland in its investigation into a missile landing in Poland, which reportedly killed two people. U.S. officials have been cautious, and after huddling with G 7 and European Union leaders, the president stressed the importance of a full investigation. I'm going to make sure we figure out exactly what happened. Mister Biden was asked whether it's too early to say that the missile was fired from Russia. He indicated there's reason to doubt that. It's unlikely. In the minds of the trajectory, that it was fired from Russia. But we'll see. With score in the president noted, Russia has upped its barrage while meetings here at the G 20 summit have been underway. Stephen portnoy, CBS News, Bali. Well, with no clarity on who is responsible for that missile. National security correspondent JJ green explains why Russia will remain under scrutiny and the implications for NATO. This happened during the firing of dozens of missiles from the Russian military. That is confirmed and it happened not too far away from where some of the missiles landed. So this is a situation here where you're talking about a NATO country. And article 5 of the NATO charter says, you know, if one of us is attacked, all of us are attacked and we come to that once aid. So this is a very critical situation to figure out. It's 5 33 now. Former president Trump has officially announced he's running for president for the third time in 2024. I am running because I believe the world has not yet seen the true glory of what this nation can be. We have not reached that Pinnacle, believe it or not. Mister Trump made his plans official after teasing a potential comeback since before he left The White House in 2021. And the announcement comes as he faces blame for the party's underwhelming performance in the midterm elections. Some sea Florida governor Ron DeSantis has a rising alternative.

Have the 'Thatcherites' Died Out? Mike Graham Weighs In
"There enough decent real I would call if I were in the UK now? I call myself a Thatcher ride. At the saturates died out, are they living a good life in the private sector? Are there enough to have the back of the next prime minister if they're a real conservative? Well, do you know the ex Home Secretary, Sue a brave man who basically resigned her job because she wasn't being allowed to run the immigration policy and to stop the illegal migration onto the shores of our country from France. She wasn't allowed to do that so she resigned, the accusations made against Liz truss was that she was a far right leader. I mean, incredible stuff. This was coming from inside the Conservative Party because it is unfortunately has always been driven by the European question. And people have started to say that they want actually to make sure that there is still a relationship with the European Union, which is absolutely a basket case. I mean, inflation in France is worse than it is in the UK, having blacked out in Germany. You know, it's absolutely horrendous over any has never been a better science and lead the European Union. Donald Trump said Germany was too reliant on Russian gas. And so it proved. So we need to get to a return and there's plenty of thatcherites who are voting conservative and they're not getting the conservative government. They're asking for.
Sebastian and Mike Graham Discuss Liz Truss' Resignation
"Given the situation, I can not deliver the mandate on which I was elected by the Conservative Party. I have therefore spoken to his majesty the king to notify him that I am resigning as leader of the Conservative Party. No U turns this lady's not for turning, I remember that catch phrase from Margaret Thatcher when I lived in the UK well, this one didn't just do U turn. She got off the highway, a record 44 days in office, shortest serving prime minister ever, gone, goodbye, Liz truss. What does it all mean? How did it happen? We stay on top of international news as much as anything else. I'm your host Sebastian gorka, and you're listening to America first on the Salem news channel. Who do we rely upon? Our good friend across the Atlantic, the man who speaks truth and common sense on the fastest growing channel there. It is talk TV. It's our good friend. Mike Graham, welcome back to America first. Sebastian, thank you very much. Indeed, well, it's been quite a day. It's been quite a week. It's been quite a 44 days. You might say, as you said, the shortest period ever, some think this has been a remainder plot. There are those in this country who still can't take the fact that Brexit was a success and that we left the European Union. You know, we now have Jeremy hunt, who's had Chancellor, who voted to remain in the EU. Let's trust was a remainer who changed into a brexiter and is now out. Boris Johnson, however, is the big name on everybody's lips tonight because but hang on, hang on, hang on, didn't you just get rid of him, Mike? Yeah. We might be getting him back. It could be the greatest political comeback of all time. You know how he's very much like Donald Trump. They're trying to get him every single step of the way. They are terrified of Boris Johnson coming back because he is the one man who can unite the Tory party who can win an election against the Labor Party and who could actually restore everything for them. Nobody's quite sure if he's going to run, but he's already in the lead in the polls and he's already in the league in the House of Commons as far as MPs is supported.

Brendan O'Neill: 'The Left Lost Faith in Ordinary People'
"Put any thought to how that happened? How did the left that were burning brows and building barricades for freedom and whatever in the 60s, how they became the censorious, there will be no progress. We're going to control information. Is it because the revolutionaries left the campuses and became the ministers became the establishment became the editors. What was the key to that 180° reversal Brendan in your opinion? I think fundamentally the left lost faith in ordinary people. And I think there were two great periods in which that happened. The first was in the 1960s when the left became much more culturally inclined. So it gave up on questions of class and questions about the economy and questions about production, which is what the left had been concerned with for a hundred years before that. And in the 60s it became much more about cultural issues. The evils of advertising and consumer society and the brain dead masses going to work every day like a bunch of idiots. So the left shifted towards a cultural critique of mass society. And as a consequence, they lost faith in the masses who they saw as being a bit brainwashed in a bit stupid. And then again in the 1980s, I think there was another development in the left's break with ordinary people because of course the right was being successful across much of the western world, particularly in the UK with Thatcher and in the U.S. with Reagan. And that's really the time that the left loses faith in democracy and starts looking for other ways to affect change, whether through the judicial wing or through the European Union in Britain's case, they looked for ways outside of democracy to circumvent democracy in order to make things happen that they would like to see happen. So in the 60s and the 80s, there was a massive shift of the left away from ordinary people and towards state structures and they started to distrust us and in the process they gave up on the idea of freedom, I think.

John Zmirak Shares His Thoughts on Italy's New Prime Minister
"There's a new prime minister in Italy and she speaks clearly and firmly about the importance of borders of national sovereignty of answering to the will of the voters, not globalist elites. She is pro family, pro life as far as I think. I think she inherits a difficult situation, we should not get our hopes too high about what she'll be able to do in office because Italy like so many of the European countries is run from afar by the European Union. It pulls the strings controls the budget if Italy tries to rebel too much against the European Union's policy of managed decline and the gradual replacement of Europeans by immigrants mostly from the Muslim world. If she rebels against that policy too much, German bankers will pull strings and bankrupt Italy. Look what they did to Greece. You remember what the European you don't think there's something like a Brexit could happen? I don't know what they would call it. They would call it Feng wool or something. What would it be, what would you call it, but you don't think the Italians could conceivably. It would have to. They would have to pull out any country that wants to actually be sovereign. Has to get out of the suicide pact that is the European Union. And eventually get out of NATO, which is a nuclear suicide pact. Now,

The Significance of Giorgia Meloni’s Big Win in Italy
"Italy has had a free and fair election and the result is a big win for the right-wing or Conservative Party. And it's actually a coalition party. But the leading member of that coalition is a group called Friends of the fraternal order of Italy or Friends of Italy. And fraternal brothers of Italy and its leader is Georgia maloney, who will become the next Italian prime minister. Now, there might have been some leftists in this country. I mean, they were, they were warning against this result, and they might have been hoping that it just as here in 2020 you'd get like later results that would pivot away from maloney and give the election to the left. But unfortunately for these leftists here in America, Italy has voter ID. And also the only mules that you find in Italy are four legged ones. They eat grass. So this wasn't honest election. And now the left is dismayed at the outcome, and there's also a lot of screaming about the outcome at the EU. Why? Because at the European Union, they can see that this is a trend that is beginning to sweep across Europe. In the beginning, the trend was only in Eastern Europe and you may say at the periphery of Europe. So Hungary, for example, pivoted in a right wing direction Victor Orban, Latvia, Poland, Lithuania, Czech Republic, Austria, Slovakia. And so the EU said, well, the mainstream countries in Europe aren't going that way. France is okay. Even though we've got le pen, Germany is okay. England is okay. And Italy is okay in Spain is okay, but now Italy, one of one of the countries, in fact, sometimes described as the beating heart of Europe. Italy has decided to also pivot sharply to the right.

Where Do Things Stand With Brexit? Mike Graham Explains
"Is the status? Are you finally free men and women in the UK is Brexit finally done? Well, they still one or two nicer seats. I would say they have to be capped off the first, of course, the European court of human rights, which actually was something that was set up outside of the European Union. It was part of the Second World War settlement, if you like. But we need to get out of that as well, because as much as that was part of the idea of never having Nazi Germany, again, as much as it was all about making sure that countries didn't go to war. It hasn't become that. Well, it's become is yet another kind of strand of the European Union become like the dead hand of communism. It's become the thing that lefty lawyers use to protect the rights of scumbags. They want to protect the rights of Albanian rapists. Drug dealers, they want to stop it, stop us from deporting people through the likes of India and Pakistan and Morocco and all points east of there for both of us Somalia because we should respect the human rights. Well, you know what? We don't respect that human rights because they don't respect ours if you want to come to this country to commit crime. If you want to come to this country to commit terrorism, we don't want you and we don't want some ridiculous Strasbourg court to be able to stop it from happening. We want to kick you out. We want to kick you out. I'm hoping that this trust will do that. She will do away with the European court for human rights. And the reason Northern Ireland hasn't quite been fixed is entirely due to the intransigence of the French and the people in Strasbourg and Brussels. We need to take a very firm line with them and say, look, forget about it. We are going to do this and whether you like it or not. We're not trying to be nice. We're not trying to reach a settlement. We are simply leaving the European Union and that means every single part of Britain needs to do that.

You know, he was a man that completely revolutionized politics. He got tripped up by the system in the end. He had his faults. He did some things wrong. But those of us who wanted to leave the European Union, I think, well, don't forget that his legacy is simply Brexit. It's as big as that. It's as good as that. And that's all you need, really.

"Gas in that key pipeline that supplies Germany and much of Europe. How much of a factor was that in this aid package? The erratic supply of natural gas from Russia was a big factor behind this relief package. For months, Gazprom has cut gas supplies through its pipeline to Europe and sometimes resumed those flows. We've seen this over and over and each time the company claims it's shutting down the pipelines for maintenance, but German officials roll their eyes at this and they say that Russia is obviously using energy as a weapon against the European Union, which is supporting Ukraine in which has imposed a range of sanctions on Russia. German economy minister Robert Hobbes spoke this weekend about the latest cut in gas deliveries to Germany through the Nord stream one pipeline. Here's what he said. And he's saying here that Nord stream one should be running at full capacity, but then there's the erratic decisions by the Russian government, which means that Germany should not count on any more gas coming through that pipeline this winter. And how much of a problem will that scenario be for Germany? Very big problem. But Germany's government has worked very hard to wean itself off of Russian natural gas prior to the war. Germany relied on Russia for more than half its natural gas supply in August that was down to less than 10%. Now August is not a month where Germany typically uses a lot of gas, but overall Germany has been able to sign contracts with other European countries like Norway and the Netherlands for alternative gas supplies in German energy experts I've spoken to say they will likely not be blackouts this winter for Germany's household sector, but that German industry may suffer. And that's probably not great for the German economy, which brings us back to this relief package. How is this going to help Germans I get through the winter? This is the third and largest relief package from the government of Chancellor Olaf scholz.

"Ukraine. Ukraine is making a diplomatic advance, and some small military retreats, the European Union yesterday officially made Ukraine a candidate to join the organization while its military may be pulling back from a city that Ukraine has struggled to defend for weeks, and Paris Greg myrie is covering the war from the Ukrainian capital Kyiv hey there Greg. Hi, Steve. I'm remembering at the very beginning when it seemed amazing that the Ukrainians had held out for a week or four weeks. And now it's been four months, but nowhere near the end, it seems. How's the country responding? Well, you know, it's still very subdued because of the war. They sort of got this big good news with the candidacy at the EU yesterday. And president volodymyr zelensky summed it up very concisely in a pretty emotional address last night. Let's hear what he said. And he's saying we will win, we will rebuild. We will join the EU and then we'll rest. He says it was a historic moment. The Ukraine now has a path to join the world's largest single block of peaceful prosperous democratic nations. In a normal time, this probably would have sent crowds into the streets to celebrate, but there is a curfew at night in this subdued sort of mood here and so there really hasn't been any public displays and the more immediate challenges this intense fighting in eastern Ukraine. What is this tactical withdrawal that we mentioned? Right, so a Ukrainian official says troops are being withdrawn from several because holding these positions, which have just been smashed over many months, doesn't really make any sense. Now, this is coming from the region's governor of sir he had died, and we should stress he's the governor, not a military official. And we haven't yet seen an official word from the military, but he has been providing regular daily updates in line with military assessments. The Russians already had virtually all of this city, except for a chemical plant where Ukrainian fighters and around 500 civilians are holed up were not yet clear if everybody's been able to get out safely. And this has been Russia's main target for weeks, part of this broader effort to take control of eastern Ukraine, the Donbass region, where Ukraine forces have just a few remaining cities and towns. Greg granting that we can't really predict anything with any reliability. There's a sense of where the trendlines are going. Where things are heading. Where is this war going after four months? Right, adding those caveats, as you mentioned. But in the big picture, most analysts thinks we are moving towards some sort of a standoff. As appears to be happening today, Russia is making some slow incremental gains. It does seem to have the momentum. Ukraine's military is outgunned. It's been suffering pretty high casualties recently. Now, that said, Ukraine is still vigorously contesting every Russian attempt to advance Russia has to concentrate its firepower in one area for weeks and weeks to make these limited advances. And Ukraine says it's now received these U.S. long-range artillery rocket systems known as high Mars. Ukraine says it will help. They'll need many more in the U.S. as more in the pipeline. Certainly an expectation of more fighting, but major breakthroughs are not really being forecast right now. Very briefly. Let's try to connect the war to the diplomatic advance. Can Ukraine continue moving toward the European Union at the same time that it's fighting a war? Well, it's going to be very difficult. In general, a candidate country needs about a decade to do this, if not more, even in peacetime, Ukraine has to get its economy back, deal with corruption, improve its judicial system, a lot of big challenges ahead, especially in wartime. And pierce Craig Miley, thanks so much. My pleasure

Download the FTX app today and use referral code breakdown to support the show. So to wrap our heads around a little bit of what this means, we turn once again to Patrick or patty Hansen. He's the head of strategy and biz dev it unstoppable DeFi and has become the interlocutor of European Union politics for the crypto industry during these proceedings. He wrote last week, I hate to ring the alarm bell again, but the EU parliament leaves us no choice. First red flag, different from the initial proposal that only required to collect not verify personal data from transfers made from slash two and un hosted wallet, the draft now requires to quote verify the accuracy of information with respect to the originator or beneficiary behind the un hosted wallet. But it doesn't say exactly how a crypto service provider should be able to verify the un hosted counterparty. The consequence of this, in my opinion, is that most crypto companies won't be able or willing to transact with un hosted wallets anymore in order to stay compliant. Second for every crypto transfer from an un hosted wallet over one K Euro, companies are obliged to inform the quote competent AML authorities. For all these transactions, even if there is no sign or suspicion of money laundering, this is an absolute violation of privacy rights. Third red flag, one year after entry into application, the EU commission will assess the need of quote additional specific measures to mitigate the risks posed by transfers from or to un hosted wallets, including the introduction of possible restrictions. This means that the EU commission might be prohibiting transfers from and to un hosted wallets entirely, as was already suggested by some members of the parliament in an earlier draft. Fourth, while the financial action task force travel rule only requires these measures for transactions over a certain amount, one K USD, and the TFR for Fiat only requires the information sharing for transfers over one K Euro, the draft sets no minimum thresholds for crypto transfers. That means that soon every single satoshi transaction that is not purely P2P will have to be accompanied by the sharing of personal information. This is a totally unjustifiable double standard. If anything the AML requirements for cryptocurrency should be lower, since blockchain based transfers offer new and additional ways to track and monitor. There are more problematic passages in the text, but these are the main ones to focus on. This proposal cracks down on a hosted wallets and creates huge data honeypots for hackers. What's concerning is that this time different from the proof of work ban in the Mika regulation, the council or member states seem to be on the same page with the EU parliament on these issues. No threshold for crypto transfers and crackdown on un hosted wallets. Now to this thread Paul Tang, who's a member of the progressive alliance of socialists and Democrats for the Netherlands, responded, and Tang has made himself the chief provocateur on Twitter as it comes to this legislation. He writes, another week, another social media storm by crypto Bros. Now about the transfer of funds regulation. Just like bank transfers transferring crypto like Bitcoin should be accompanied with information about the person sending and receiving the funds. Now the European Parliament wants to cover also transfers to and from un hosted wallets. These are wallets where crypto assets are stored on your PC without the involvement or knowledge of anyone else. Similar to holding cash in your pocket. But cryptos are extremely mobile and operate in a borderless world. This means that funds from un hosted wallets often come from unknown sources. And money going to un hosted wallets may end up in the wrong place, for example, with terrorist groups. So the identity of unhosted wallet holders needs identification, just like you need to identify yourself when you deposit money at the bank. And we want authorities to be notified in case anyone person receives a total of €1000 plus from un hosted wallets. This is a red flag. The parliament also covers all crypto transfers regardless of their monetary value. The unstable value of crypto assets makes a threshold in Euros difficult to enforce. And smurfing allows for many small transfers to be coordinated so as to escape any threshold. These are important tools to fight money laundering and terrorist financing. Some crypto lobbyists won't like the extra work, but being part of our society comes with obligations. Banks already fight criminal money. Crypto Bros should step up to the plate and do so too. And so here in a single tweet and a quote tweet response, you have the gist of this argument. The great debate is about financial freedom and sovereignty on the one hand versus the boogeyman of crime and societal obligations on the other. On the side of the state or MPs like Tang and aurora le Luc, who said we are talking here about a serious subject. The fight against money laundering, the financing of terrorism crime, keto crime, a subject that deserves no controversy, no buzz. Avoiding new victims, defending the general interest, these are our values. On the other side are those who view these rules as overly strict, more strict in fact than the banks. More its corner from the liberal free Democratic Party representing Germany says, if we impose stricter rules on the crypto economy than on the traditional financial sector, we risk once again over regulating and innovative economic sector that will, as a result, thrive in markets outside the EU. Michael Hugh Gavin, a member of the European conservatives and reformists for the Netherlands says, the greatest asset of blockchains are traceability and transparency. The amendments to the transfer of funds regulation make transfers to a wallet unnecessarily complicated. Come with privacy risk and will hinder innovation. I will vote against it. Pure person again, though not in the EU parliament also articulated the position of many. Regulating the uses of crypto requires a good understanding of how it works. We can not transpose banking and financial regulation applied to a centralized ecosystem to a brand new ecosystem. We have to invent a whole new KYC AML model adapt to this new technology. This leads us to the determination of political objectives by the regulator. To date, the Fatah has not been able to adapt its recommendations to the new technological dimension. It needs to use tools enabled by this technology to work on a new framework based on the risk approach. To date, the presumption of guilt weighs on the centralized actors and users. The prohibitive approach seems to dominate in Europe. These choices will condemn these nations and financial competition. The nations that have the courage to work to learn without dogma will be the winning nation in this international competition. Not because they will be the lowest bidder, but because they will have known how to regulate intelligently. So there are obviously a lot of specifics to this debate. While at company ledger wrote a blog post, for example, pointing out using figures from chain analysis compared to figures from the UN that Fiat currency money laundering is 232 times as large as crypto money laundering. Another starker way to put it is that the amount of money the UN estimates was laundered last year through traditional means, it's around the same size as the total crypto market cap. These are the types of details that should be debated with more time. But I don't think those specifics are really why this issue gets so hot. I think why these debates are so triggering is that there are a microcosm of the great and central conceit of really all modern politics. The rights of individuals versus the obligations of participation in a society. I point that out as a way of saying that it is not only fair but good to have those debates. Especially when they are had in good faith. This is a precarious balance that is constantly shifting. New threats and new circumstances do require new evaluations, but so too do threats to individual sovereignty. If we really decide as a society that we have zero tolerance for any financial crime, then yes, we can also put human financial surveillance to 100 and financial sovereignty to zero. But that would also necessarily mean the end to cash, among other things. What it seems strange as it admittedly outside observer is the way in which two major issues now of dramatic importance to the cryptocurrency industry have been pushed into legislation at the last minute without a lot of time for the industry to comment and engage. Now I will admit I could have the wrong of that. It could be partially on the industry that we haven't been paying enough attention or engaging enough. But it's still feels strange and hurried. This sentiment was sort of validated by silk Noah, a lawyer at gnosis, who pointed to Russia's invasion of the Ukraine as an accelerating force for, well, everything. She writes, since 2021, negotiations have been ongoing to extend the scope of the TFR to crypto. IE virtual asset service providers must collect and make accessible info about the sender and beneficiary of crypto transfers. Due to the Russian invasion of Ukraine, the drafting of amendments has been speeded such that it now represents a masterclass in how to kill the EU's most promising industry. Whatever the case, unlike the Mika proof of work ban, this one did not go our way. At ten 21 a.m. this morning, east coast time, Patti Hansen writes, breaking the econ and lead committees of the EU parliament voted in favor of the FTR compromises D and E that cracked down on quote unquote un hosted wallets. The entire regulation draft to be voted on later today, but will certainly go through. So what happens from here? Well, one, I will not pretend to understand the EU legislative process at all. But again, here's what Patrick Hansen had to say about it. After the vote today, the econ proposal will be announced in the plenary session probably sometime in April. If no one challenges that by requesting a plenary vote, the between the EU parliament commission and council will start shortly after. The trial usually takes a couple of months and offers the last chance to introduce changes. Individual voices from the council and commission make me optimistic that we can still achieve changes. But the situation is undoubtedly more difficult than with the proof of work ban. Now, what about partisanship? Obviously I talk about that a lot in the U.S., monitoring, if and how crypto is becoming more or less partisan. And I've described how I believe that it is to crypto's benefit, how it seems to be bucking the tide of rampant partisanship. In the EU, it would be tempting to look at these results and see it as a left alliance for this identity verification and a right alliance against it. But even here, that's not fully true. If a Cali is the vice president of the Euro parliament and is from the progressive alliance of socialists and Democrats and a member for Greece, she wrote on March 29th, head of the vote for AML, it seems necessary to not put EU in the backseat of DeFi and innovation, but to support the initial approach of TFR. Proportionality and smart regulation for innovation friendly principle should be the spirit. Hopefully EU will make the right decision. Ever kept up for tweeting this morning, she retweeted Cameron winklevoss from Gemini who said when it comes to AML efforts, the inherent attributes of the blockchain, traceability, auditability, and transparency, allow it to be an effective tool to combat illegitimate activity. Subject to protecting privacy and other individual rights. She also added transfer of funds from un hosted wallets to EU crypto asset service providers should be possible in a proportionate way, otherwise EU risks circumvention of EU infrastructure via non EU providers to fight crime and corruption while remaining tech neutral and innovation friendly. And finally, no matter what happens today, there is a need to discuss further in the European Parliament. We will host workshops with experts and work with colleagues that have the best intentions for a proportionate responsibility of European Union, crypto asset service providers. So there will be a lot more ink spilled on this. There will be debates in the EU around the specifics of wallets around the practicality and legality of requiring parties to provide KYC of third parties of crypto's relevance to the EU economy and more. There will be a temptation by many in the crypto industry to say screw them all to believe firmly that this means that the regulators in the European Union do not have the best interest of this industry anywhere near their priorities. But I think that it would be a mistake. It may be late in the game, but the process isn't over, and what's more, even if it's a slim chance, changing laws before they're made is a hell of a lot easier than changing laws after they become laws. I will, of course, be keeping track of this and sharing resources where I can. For now I want to say thanks again to my sponsors, nexo IO, arculus, and FTX, and thanks to you guys for listening.

So we are here again. Back just a couple of weeks after our last EU crypto show, and I'm going to try to unpack what's going on as dispassionately as possible. There are a lot of heated emotions right now for good reason. So let's try to understand what's actually been happening. As we discussed before, the markets in crypto assets directive or Mika has been in the work since 2019, but it's recently had more momentum and more focus. For the last couple of months, the crypto industries attention was on an anti proof of work provision in the Bill. In February, there was a bit of a back and forth where first this anti POW provision was removed and then just before an important last minute vote in the econ committee of the EU parliament, a version was added back, which said, quote, crypto assets shall be subject to minimum environmental sustainability standards with respect to their consensus mechanism used for validating transactions before being issued offered or admitted to trading in the union. Crypto assets that are issued offered or admitted to trading in the union shall set up and maintain a phased rollout plan to ensure compliance with such requirements. So effectively, this would have been a ban on Bitcoin Ethereum and other proof of work chains. Not on mining mind you, but on trading exchanges wouldn't have been able to list these assets. At the time of that debate, peer person who's a French politician who is not in the EU parliament summed up the feelings of many saying, Mika regulation will be voted on next Monday. As it stands, it definitively condemns the future of crypto assets in Europe by banning Bitcoin and ether by complicating the use of NFTs and DeFi, the European Parliament is mortgaging our monetary and financial sovereignty. Once again, we are going against history. Once again, we are leaving opportunities to others while boasting of having good regulation. If this text passes as it stands, we will pay the price in terms of our competitiveness and the interests of European citizens. Now, this took a lot of people myself included off guard, but in fact, folks who pay attention to regulations in the U.S. like Jake travinsky, the head of policy at the blockchain association, had in fact warned late last year that the industry as a whole might not have been focused enough on Europe. On December 1st, he tweeted, I fear we've been underestimating the potential impact of Mika on the crypto industry globally. In the U.S. it feels like we've buried our heads in the sand, thinking it isn't our problem and hoping it doesn't affect us. If GDPR is any example, that may be a big miscalculation. So let's zoom forward to today. What's going on? The European Parliament was hosting an important vote on new AML legislation with a focus on targeting crypto. Specifically two committees voted today on amendments that are focused on un hosted wallets or as we call them in this industry, self hosted wallets, and yes, the distinction between those names is a political one that matters quite a bit, and the idea of this AML legislation would be that it could block EU based exchanges in crypto service providers from interacting with those wallet owners that weren't identity verified. The rule would require that the quote provider of crypto asset transfers report the identity of the owner of un hosted wallets to the exchanges that they're transferring funds from and exchanges would be required not just.

"Sharing space. That's what that's the Key idea, and this isn't it? It's not about sort of claiming this territory that terrifying words about we were human beings to share with space. And and that was the real. Violence of the threat of Brexit right, which was stuck. It was being done by people who just didn't know anything about that on if they did know about it just didn't care about it. You know, the sense off. Just we were really, You know, that's your problem is not our problem. You know, we're putting up this border and, you know, just deal with it. That was very offensive. Actually. You know, Andre, I think I don't feel any sense of schadenfreude or any sense of triumph out of anything because it zasada story the Brexit story, but from an Irish perspective This'll is a step relatively young state, a small state, a weak state state that, for most of its existence was incredibly poor. And there is a real sense actually saying, Wow, you know, this is maybe the first time in our history we were faced with a major international crisis. We want way actually got the thing we really needed to get Andrea got against the wishes of Britain. That's not an anti British point at all. But simply a Z was saying earlier. You know, the history of the relationship is Country, Little country Well, who usually wins that when there's a conflict of interest, the big country wins. This is the first time a small countries one for much of the 20th century. Um Ireland was still intermeshed. With England and Scotland. Certainly In ways large and small that a lot of the outside world didn't know about. I mean, it was. It was pretty easy to move to the United Kingdom from the Republic of Ireland. You could vote in local elections. It was pretty frictionless. I met a lot of Irish people in Liverpool. I knew a lot of Irish people in London. Uh, And yet There was a lot of residue of that old conflict between the two countries. With the republic in the EU and Britain out of it does the Relationship with Brussels and Strasbourg, with Paris and Amsterdam and And Berlin continue to solidify continue to integrate with Irish kids going to universities on the continent, but not as easily. Going to London or Edinburgh or Cardiff. Does Ireland now enter into a new phase of its relationship to Europe? Because it's no longer kind of Bobbsey twin with its closest neighbor. I think it does, And I'm not sure we have quite, you know, internalized just just yet, Quite what That means. So again, you're absolutely right. You know, for good and ill. There's been a lot of ill, but it's also been a lot of good. You know, the fate of the two countries has been intertwined. You know, probably since the 13th century, you know, which is quite a long time. This is the first time really in the all of that period when you can say that, Actually, these two countries are on different different trajectories, you know? Um, on That was that was actually actually It's about independence, you know? This is one of the strange things that in in in England's particularly Brexit is seen as an independence movement and in Ireland, not doing an Irish marginal Brexit to signals empty. Expression of Irish independence. You know, we're independent country now because we make our own decisions. One of the reasons we make is that we're not tights, Britain and we're way are going to deepen and continue our relationship with Europe. That's a that's a very big thing. You know, we still live very much of an Anglophone world memory. Course I understand with complicates. This is the rest of America which is so close. You know, we we will remain. Anglophone will remain part of Part of that. What used to be called the Anglo Saxons. Fear is gonna have to become something else. I think now, maybe maybe the Irish American works, you know, but, you know, like just to take a real example of this I mean, Who's Who's America's best and you're speaking friend in the European Union now You know, that's not. The question you would even have asked five years ago is obviously but you know the special relationship, another historical ties and Joe Biden, who I think of the personnel of some consequence. I'm given to understand the United States, You know, I mean, Biden said a couple years ago he was talking about about Brexit is one of the big problems with the Brexit is that you know, we as Americans are losing our voice within Europe because that was the bricks. Who's going to be the voice of America in in in in the European Union? Well, you know, I want it. I'm not saying it's going to replace the special Ladyship of Britain, which is offered military and security implications, which, of course Island is not really involved with. Politically speaking, You know, maybe the country and European Union that understands America best is violent and Maybe the country in the European Union that has The closest historical ties still to United States is Ireland. So so island's position as a sort of, you know, I don't overstate this. But you know, as a sort of medium between between the European Union on the United States is certainly going to become more important. But also our European. This is going to become more important. I mean, it's it's you know it has. It has sort of And its colors to the European flag on bond. That, as you say, is gonna have huge implications. Where do you Where do your students go? Just really simple Example. You know, One of the great programs European Union has been running For 20 years. I think all the Erasmus program which means that basically, if you're a student in Dublin, you can study in Copenhagen. If you're a student in Milan, you can. You can study in Berlin, but you can also study in Dublin or cork or go away. It's a fantastic program. This is really gives, you know, just give students it's they don't have to pay anything extra. You know they can. They can move between European universities. That is a huge impact on people's lives on who they married, you know. You know, I'm I'm 62. I have two sons. They both of their girlfriends. And what one of them is Danish and one of them A Spanish. You know, my my one grandson is in Copenhagen. You know his mother's Danish. You know, just the stuff that happens in real life. You know, it's not big politics, but it's very profound in terms of People sense of who they are and how they connect S O. It is one of the paradoxes of Brexit that it's definitely going to make Ireland um or European country We're turning back to what you said about the United States. You can't help but be struck when you travel through Ireland to see all the American corporate names and us familiar corporate offices. Ah, lot of Commercial activity went to the United Kingdom after you membership because Americans saw that as the soft option for getting into the EU. Now That's not going to be the case anymore with Will Ireland. Get some of that action, or does geography stand in the way of that? I think I will get a lot of that. Actually, As you say, You already have huge hubs of American owned companies in Ireland, and this is a relationship between goes back to the 19 sixties, but it's particularly from the 19 nineties. If you if you go around Dublin, you know, you just think of an American tech company and you will see their European headquarters in the in Ireland. You know, it's be very You know, much easier to this the ones that don't The same with areas like like pharmaceuticals like medical devices, which which is incredibly important. I mean being a fiver, for example, is a hugely important hub and in county cork. So it's already a huge factor in the arse, economy and and in our society. And So we know as a matter of fact that American corporations are very comfortable in Ireland. You know, Some of this is protect station reasons, which will be controversial on grand. Rightly so, but some of it's his cultural legal. Remember, you know, the the Our Ireland and Britain had this advantage, too, of course, operates a legal system which is pretty similar to the American. We we share a common law break British common Law, Of course, the history of that which you know, but so you know, there are lots of reasons and, of course, the language, But you know that they're just people feel comfortable in if you're If your advisor or your apple or your Twitter you know your your employees, they're going to feel reasonably a home if they're in Ireland. So I think it's inevitable that you know those kind of investment decisions are often very just very fine balance, isn't it? You know it. Z most European countries, Western European countries there. Highly sophisticated, the good lots of educated populations that lots of good things going for them on. So it's fine things about convenience, you know, is it Is it easier on? It's hell of a lot easier if you're an American company. Lost. It seems you're an Australian company or a Canadian company, T O base yourself in Ireland's.
