"And use referral code breakdown to support the show. Speaking of regulatory practices, the other piece that we're going to read today is from coin desk, and it's by boaz sobrado, a London based FinTech analyst in cryptocurrency enthusiast. The piece is called crypto should disrupt current anti money laundering practices, not adopt them. Modern know your customer anti money laundering regulations are ineffective. Crypto represents a better option to address this problem. Until the early 20th century, highly respected doctors would routinely engage in bloodletting to cure ailments ranging from acne to tuberculosis. While we have left bloodletting behind, we are still engaging in putatively helpful, but variably destructive practices. Modern know your customer anti money laundering KYC AML regulations are equivalent to financial bloodletting today. They do little good and may cause a lot of harm. Yet whether we like it or not, the KYC AML nightmare is coming to crypto. A few weeks ago, news broke that a consortium of U.S. based crypto companies had formed trust, a travel rule compliance platform that expands financial surveillance. Incorporated companies must abide by the law of their local jurisdiction. Yet crypto shouldn't blindly follow legacy AML rules from the financial action task force. The global money laundering and terrorist funding oversight group. It should disrupt them. A recent phenomenon. The idea of money laundering is a relatively recent one. In 1970, Richard Nixon passed the euphemistically named bank secrecy act, which required financial institutions to spy on their customers. Keep in mind Al Capone and other U.S. mobsters had already been successfully prosecuted for tax evasion 40 years before, the bank secrecy act was passed. Since then, the scope of surveillance has grown exponentially. For example, banks in 1970 were required to report transactions in excess of 10,000. Today, the limit remains 10,000, but 10,000 in 1970 is equivalent to 73,000 today. Only after the 1990s did the rest of the world criminalize money laundering. Mostly because of U.S. pressure after the 2001 terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center and Washington D.C.. What have been the results of this policy experiment? According to financial crime specialist, doctor Ron Paul, very little. Current AML rules don't stop the vast majority of money laundering. The United Nations estimates that less than 1% of all criminal assets are seized globally, meaning that over 99% of criminal assets get laundered with impunity. Why would criminals use the relatively small cryptocurrency market to launder funds on a public record when they can easily launder billions through the conventional financial system without a trace? AML regulations also come at a great financial cost. Worldwide spending on AML and sanctions compliance by financial institutions is estimated to exceed a $180 billion a year. About a hundred times more than the 1 billion to 2 billion in criminal assets that get seized annually. Social costs are also high. The bureaucratic rules designed to keep criminals out disenfranchised millions of legitimate customers. More often than not, these are marginalized groups. If you live in a smaller poor country, you might find it impossible to jump through the arbitrary hoops designed by a San Francisco product manager on the advice of a London lawyer. The author has personally been locked out of accounts because a small EU government issued document was not accepted as a valid proof of address. The company's KYC service couldn't comprehend that there are places where people do not use utility bills to prove residents. AML departments and financial service companies are more about complying with AML legislation than actually stopping money laundering. A 2014 study found that identity verification quote principles guidance and practices resulted in processes that are largely bureaucratic and do not ensure that identity fraud is effectively prevented. In other words, fraud has been growing at astronomical rates worldwide. And KYC laws have already greatly contributed to this. People are now accustomed to share their personal identity documents with a wide range of actors ranging from banks to telecom providers to pornography websites. Is it surprising when their information gets compromised? Crypto is well suited. How can cryptocurrency disrupt AML regulations? Cryptography based systems are uniquely well suited for proving identity and source of funds. Moreover, they can do so in a privacy preserving and transparent way. For instance, you could open accounts at a centralized entity, pseudonymously, using a public key verified by a trusted authority. That way, you only have to trust one entity with your details. A similar privacy preserving method could be used in decentralized finance using zero knowledge proofs. Indeed, there is evidence that crypto is starting to disrupt sanctions enforcement. Coinbase announced it had limited access to its services in 25,000 wallets that may be related to sanction Russians. The non custodial privacy focus wallet wasabi has announced it will be blocking sanctioned addresses from its coin join pools, meaning that users can be confident they won't be mixing funds with sanctioned individuals. These measures while countering the censorship resistant ethos of cryptocurrency generate much less collateral damage than the blanket bans and creeping surveillance of the current regime. Although medical bloodletting was probably well intentioned over centuries, it caused a lot of unnecessary suffering. Came at great societal cost and did nothing to treat disease. The cryptocurrency industry was born from a realization that the modern financial system leaves individuals vulnerable to abuse by trusted third parties. Current regulatory hodgepodge of that of driven KYC and AML regulations have birthed ineffective systems that do little to stop money laundering. Instead, they enable political censorship, financial surveillance, fraud, and inequality. The cryptocurrency industry should lead by example through the use of new innovative and effective anti crime methods instead of forcing old ineffective ones. Now I think this is a good piece. I don't necessarily agree that the crypto industry's job is to willfully disobey the law. And that's not exactly what the author is advocating for. But I do think that the crypto industry could be a leader in a larger national and global conversation about the cost of financial surveillance regimes, and the potential these new types of systems actually offer more scalpels than hammers. I think in other words, if there is a positive, productive, future oriented conversation to be had that aligns financial sovereignty and the needs of a society as a whole. But inertia is a hell of a thing. So having that conversation will not be easy. For now I want to say thanks again to my sponsors next to IO, arculus and FTX, and thanks to you guys for listening.

The us mission to the un Deny director of national intelligence the cia The joint chairman of the joint chiefs of staff the chairman of the joint chiefs of staff. usa. Id and the national security agency. So all of these agencies at a minimum will be Will be looking at ways in which that they can enhance the battle Enhance the per-. The inner corruption fight whether it be ref- resources personnel sharing information. All of these types of things that are going to be an you know to take the anti-corruption battle To the to the next level now they also issued a fact sheet. Which i think was quite an interesting and we can get an idea here. at sort of where they're where they're heading in terms of On elicit finance for example. They're going to lead in from international efforts to bring transparency to the us and international financial systems so we may have even more regulation coming beyond that that or more attempts to regulate beyond that which was in the anti money laundering act which was enacted earlier this year and they want to focus on offshore financial secrecy seizing stolen assets and making it more difficult for those who steal to hide behind anonymity so there's a beneficial ownership registries There's going to be other sort of The ability of illicit actors to high behind anonymity. By let's say residential real estate and We're gonna see closing loopholes in the existing regulatory regimes. Now i think the other the other interesting idea is And i think we'll see sort of ramping up some of the sanctions activities to hold corporate individuals Accountable corrupt individuals accountable transnational criminal organizations and other actors in this means strengthening and building anti-corruption sanctions for example under the global magnitsky act and similar authorities and bolstering criminal or aunts or civil enforcement actions such as the doj's kleptocracy recovery initiative as. Well as the fcpa think we'll see more resources going to the fbi more resources going to The the justice department's fraud section which includes the fcpa unit And we may see some Legislative proposals To fix certain laws that are used for anti-corruption we may have for example an increase penalties for the fcpa which is of five year offense in comparison to the money laundering acts Statutes which are twenty year fences so we could see a big change their In addition we may see sentencing guidelines Adjusted and recommendations may to the sentencing commission to adjust the guidelines for criminal penalties In terms of financial fines And other things under the guidelines Cal calculation. I also think think we're gonna see another sort of plateau here in terms of building the international partnerships and coordination As a way to strengthen americans america's alliances and partnerships They're going to work with like minded international partners through the u. n. g. seven financial action task force and similar bodies to push Strategic you know fighting strategic corruption emanating from autocratic kleptocratic governments foreign state owned or affiliated enterprises. And of course transnational criminal organizations So that may be another part To this as well now. Interestingly we had the g seven meeting this weekend and Just released a late today. was a statement with regard to the g seven to announce joint actions on forced labor and global supply chains anti-corruption and ransomware but the commitment On corruption is that The statement that was issued a indicated that Obviously supporting president biden's efforts to cork to curb corruption which was a korir. Us national interest and corruption In the g. Savon members were urged to do more To stop the flow funds into untraceable accounts obscured by shell companies warren real estate and that the g seven partners resolved to taking more meaningful actions to combat corruption such as tackling the misuse of shell companies limiting the ability of bad actors to launder dirty money in real estate purchases. Improving corruption related information searing and reforming foreign assistance to focus on anti-corruption as a cross cutting pyeho priority so the this again is another statement that shows the g. seven members at least are going to make an additional effort here and i think we're going to see a pretty quickly. Some you know ramping up of enforcement in this area Legislative proposals as well as Additional resources and i think the department of treasury is going to play a big role with regard the sanctions In am l. Enforcement and the regulations that are coming out relating to the anti money laundering act and beneficial ownership. These are all issues to watch for But all in all an interesting development and You know as everybody says look it looks good on paper less dressy in practice what it turns into anyway.

Deep inconsistencies over how States treat terror suspects families: UN rights expert
"Some countries are defining whomever they like as terrorists and exhibiting deep and problematic inconsistency of a how they treat family members of suspected extremists in places like northeast Syria and Iraq that's according to phenomena Nia loin the UN independent human rights expert dealing with counterterrorism. She says that many of the women and children associated with former isolate terrorist fighters are themselves victims and it's a big mistake to curb their rights or to find them simply by Association Misty Loin was at U N headquarters a few days ago to deliver her annual brought the general assembly she told mud wells what her main message had been the context of that report is that protecting and promoting human rights in the context of countering terrorism has never been more fragile and more precarious at the foothold of human rights remains very tenuous and the footprint extremely light there were two specific issues that my report addressed the first was the proliferation of what I call soft law in the area of counter-terrorism soft law seems like an oxymoron laws usually hard but in the absence of a binding treaty on terrorism since nine eleven no one can really clearly define it well it's cure that states have struggled to define it let's say but we do some very clear definitions of acts of terrorism but in the absence of a treaty states have not stood still they have chosen to enact large and proliferating amounts of law through these mechanisms of soft law and my concern is that much of that soft law is a human rights freeze on that there's almost oh substantive content and that there's almost no procedures to ensure the insertion of human rights and that is an enormous problem in the context of protecting and promoting human rights Hillbilly State get away with the fact that you know most people in the world see terrorism and the Lt leafy like terrorists are often named before the facts established. I think it's even more pernicious than that actually I think because we don't have a global definition of terrorism states have been left free to define whom for the like as a terrorist and so what we're finding at the domestic level is some countries for example consider women asking for the right to drive as terrorists and prosecute them under terrorism legislation some states consider persons who protest peacefully in the streets demanding their right political participation to be terrorists under there Domestic Law some for example legislation says any kind of insult or quote dishonor to the state constitutes terrorism so these definitions are so wide it means that in practice what terrorism anti-terrorism work in many states involves simply locking up or restraining or limiting or administrators sanctioning those who happen to disagree with you and that right the right to disagree the right to express the right to protest the right to participate freely in public affairs alright protected by our most fundamental treaties Covenant on seven political rights by the Universal Declaration so it's a huge problem so part from soft law is the other main point to make the second point was that increasingly much of this laws being made in new institutions institution sexually that sit outside of the UN institutions that are not part of the traditional multilateral ace and my report looks two of those one is the Global Counter Terrorism Forum the other is the FATF Financial Action Task Force these entities are small clubs of states come together through mutual south interest and but it's exclusive many states we know that lawmaking is messy for states and when you have lots of states it's even more messy that's part of the barter the fundamental notion that all states are equal and have sovereign equality in the lawmaking process when we create these new institutions and as those are the institutions that are producing much of the soft law who are actually not only excluding human rights because there's very little fundamental structural engagement with human rights by these bodies but also large numbers of states don't get to participate and I think that's a problem from the point of view of sovereign equality it's also a human rights mm-hmm oversee this week terrorists and those who are associated with alleged terrorists have been very much in the news when it comes to northeastern Syria and for many is also of course in Iraq as well I mean what are your concerns about how events progressing this week with special relevance to those families and commute children of alleged terrorists who are in great danger for the mandate is issued a public position it's on the mandates website at the opposite hey commissions ED page in that we make a number of observations and recommendations to states the first is to remember as many states are failing to remember that they have legal obligations to the citizens who find themselves overseas at those include not just human rights obligations but consular assistance obligations those are well entrenched and well established in international law the second thing is to remind ourselves that many of these individuals women and children are in fact victims they are also victims of terrorism. I had the good fortune the responsibility to be in Kazakhstan in May this year when Kazakhstan repatriated two hundred and forty-one citizens from women and children from Iraq and Syria and I interviewed many of those women and their children and what was painfully obvious is that many of these girls were in were went to Syria and Iraq when they were minors they first had sex often unconcerned pointingly as minors which many Western countries would be statutory rape under domestic law they gave birth to children in non consenting circumstances and those children themselves are children protected by the Convention on the rights of the child we cannot and should not ever define women by association to a particular man if that is is the departure of states that's a profoundly illegitimate and frankly undermining of the most basic notion of equality for women so for those who say well they they deserve what they got they went they made the decision to go and surely wouldn't apply that principle for example to women who experienced domestic violence or he wouldn't apply to women who find themselves in precarious circles chances in many domestic situations we wouldn't say you chose to marry that person or follow that person and therefore you have no protection under law it seems to me that that kind of McCurry slope is enormously dangerous not just in Iraq and Syria but on the fundamental notion that we treat individuals individually we assess what they have done individually the mandate has clearly taken the view if certain women if women have been responsible for criminal acts as they are in any country in the world they should be held responsible under the criminal law but bree I'm home and and try them in under fair trial with due process not in states that will subject their axe to the death penalty not in states where other special rapporteurs for example the special return summary and arbitrary executions who visited Iraq in the last two years has has pointed out in situations where their deep fair trial concerns deep concerns about the conditions of detention and most of all I would say we don't we are long past the time where we should be producing circulars guidelines having endless conversations and and and unfortunate hand-wringing about what to do about this problem bear in mind that in other circumstances the UN for example and states have committed to addressing the problem of sexual violence in armed conflict the UN has a special offer for dealing with children in armed conflict so is it suddenly not that all of these rights and obligations that we say apply to women and children in certain conflicts are selective that we get to choose which conflicts we give the does in title mints and Benefits and Protections to it seems to me that would be an abrogation of the most fundamental kind and show a deep and and. and very problematic inconsistency with long term consequences for the notion of the role of the rule of law of equality under law and the right for any individual woman or child to be treated in their own right and to be assessed in their own right and to be treated humanely and with dignity not based on the person to whom they happen to be associated by virtue of birth or by virtue of marriage forced or otherwise

F. financial action task force they're taking action these crypto currency exchanges or what they're calling virtual assets service providers saying that not only do crypto exchanges need to begin passing information to and from one another about who holds which account numbers and such is when you have a crypto currency exchange do you the if you've got an account at one of them there's usually a a list of showing all the different crypt as they have been then your balances of each of those different kryptos and you can either deposit into that tripped over one of the coaches or you can withdraw from so if you have a balance you can take out and so what they're saying is if you're going to withdraw from let's say big Klein from exchange a into a different exchange that that other exchange needs to be informed both exchanges basically need to have information about who's holding which accounts on which you can changes I'm curious what are they going to do about a black market exchange rate because if they're required to cooperate with the other exchanges but there's an exchange of doesn't cooperate they wouldn't know that that they would have no idea where the black market exchange addresses were so the only way they they would know okay just looked let's talk more about how this works for listeners that are maybe new they'll get here there's a gentleman waiting here will on our discord line but when you generate a bit coin address or for most crypto currencies this is true when you generate a big point address no one has to know that that event has occurred okay so you don't have you not asking permission from anybody there's no you know you.

S. T. T. I don't know it would be easier that way now than sending a wire transfer but regardless back to the story here so they're saying that further countries should ensure the beneficiary institutions obtain and hold required not necessarily accurate originator information and required an accurate beneficiary information so they're saying basically you got to share information with one another under the new guidance the regular a required information for each transfer will include the originator's name meaning the sending customer the originators account number where such an account is used to process the transaction the originators physical address in a geographic address or national identity numbers like your social security number or customer identification number that uniquely identifies the originator to the ordering institution or their date and place of birth well so here's the question the huge private I want to know is when I send a wire transfer to some customer in Germany does the bank over in Germany get my social security number I don't think so so this is something that would be on top of and beyond what a bank all normal but I think the bank probably would would get it I mean I think you're right I think that's that's basically you think you might be right I think post two thousand something there that might be the true case yeah I know they're supposed to some information ones are already in place for back what I don't know is if if this was security number would be included but the name Sir well remember this slow there are Carmen is has a bunch of awards in it yeah so your physical address or national identity number or customer ID okay okay the probably sending my address to another bank getting you're not you're not the not my social security number the arresting to look where to ask well you and they may not be logged out telling bank is giving it a no I mean the it goes to a saving over they may not tell the TV I mean look look like your your bank closed every bank is it goes to some other like part of the bank basically to do the actual wire transfer that's right it's not being done by your like a local the branch or whatever they will also be required to transfer the beneficiaries name and beneficiaries account number we're such an account is used to process the transaction quote unquote calling the quote Fred of criminal and terrorist misuse of virtual assets a serious and urgent issue the FATF set in a public statement that it will give countries twelve months okay so I was wondering how long this is going to take to adopt the guidelines with a review set for June of twenty twenty users are not guidelines these are these are like laws actually for all effective purposes on a bright totally unaccountable yeah you know you can elect these people you can opt out of the system the so called travel rules a longstanding requirement for international banks are other money on customers behalf of blockchain industry I think it's are you to be onerous if not impossible to put into practice with crypto as well as harmful to user privacy which of course the the government's don't care about that yeah right and counterproductive to law enforcement.

"Now, the financial action task force, according to Bloomberg is plotting to destroy crypto currencies. They have two hundred countries that will enact whatever bureaucratic nonsense that they come up with. And can they do it? Can they take down crypto individual cryptos? Yes. Can they take down the concept? No. The concept is an idea ideas are bulletproof. Well, they can't even really take down individual cryptos, because like with bitcoin, there's ten thousand nodes. How are they gonna stop all ten thousand of them? Well, I mean they don't necessarily have to stop all of the nodes. They have to stop it from being viable system, or stop it from being useful, right? And then because vile the value of bitcoin is based on bitcoin being useful. Anything that stops it from being useful, if they out if they made it illegal for bricks and mortar shops to take the stuff than that would change things. Now you could still use it on the internet. And they can't entirely shut that down, but it would be relegated to smaller market segment. Then again, it might do better in that market segment. If it wasn't trying to cater to quarter corporate in interests and, and incorporate KYC and all your customer know you're yeah, I mean, maybe it's for the best that cryptocurrencies corporate. America, go their separate ways, which is what the effect of this would be. You know, you're not gonna stop the guy selling. It was selling weed for crypto from taking crypto by naked, the great. Oh, illegal because the winds legal already, you know. But, you know, that's not going to get you necessarily, but amazoNcom will not take it micro. Soft will not take if it's.

And if it's harder for them to, you know, to get their hands their digital hands, if you will on crypto that could affect the price, it will definitely affect the availability. If you have to by person to person it's going to be a lot harder to to acquire it. Absolutely. And the other thing is a mining problem. I mean if they if they made the declaration that the entire concept of clip crypto was, if they just made it money laundering, which they could do by simply passing laws that they could, they could say the whole thing is conspiracy to, to wander money. So we're just gonna outlaw the whole meth if that happens then that it's definitely problematic problematic for us because any any minor could be it would be like starting the war on crypto, as like the war on drugs. And that would be fought by the same means a lot of a lot of people would be killed. A lot of people would go to prison. Here's some more information about the story or about what they say may happen. They say the guidelines will require companies now, I don't know how they know this, considering the meeting hasn't happened, yet, it's going to happen on the twenty-first of this month. But they're saying the guidelines they come up with will require companies ranging from exchanges like coin base and Creighton to asset. Mass asset managers Fidelity Investments to collect information about customers initiating transactions of over one thousand dollars or one thousand euros as well as details about the recipients of the funds and to send that data to the recipient service provider, along with each transaction..
Pakistan leader criticises Modi of stoking 'war hysteria'
"Imran Khan was praised action quickly to avert conflict with India last month after flareup intentions that followed a terror attack in Cushman, but Pakistan's prime minister says he is worried his Indian counterpart Narendra Modi may be stoking unimpressively to beast, his electro prospects, Stephanie Finley our South Asia correspondent spoke to Mr. Khan and Johnston. I sing discusses the interview with Stephanie and with Amy Kazman our South Asia bureau chief. Chose to India to try and have civilized relationship and resolving all shoes through dialogue. But the response. I got early on. I realized that because of the Indian elections we should not expect anything positive, but we were apprehensive that some incident would happen and Paloma happened. I felt that Mr. Modi's government used that to build this war hysteria. It could have gone anywhere once the jets bombed us, and we want them. So fortunately, it stopped. But I'm still apprehensive before the elections. I feel that the something happen Amy has anger in India over the pharma terror attack in February east off or is Mr Hun right to worry about another flare up during the Indian election period, the Indian missile strike at Bala coach was obviously a very significant event because it ended this long tradition of India's strategic restrain. Paint in the face of pug, sunny provocation and terror attacks believed to emanate from Pakistan in the past no matter what had happened, including the horrific Mumbai terror attacks in which one hundred sixty six people were killed in Porsche five star hotels and a two thousand one tack on the Indian parliament in. None of these cases to India turn to military retaliation, the situation is different now because prime minister Narendra Modi has really tried to adopt a much more muscular stance towards Pakistan. But the thing is that part of the reason that India was able to conduct this missile strike without triggering international. Outrage was because of the previous nearly two decades of serious strategic restraint. So as some commentators said India was kind of spending the political capital that had been accumulated by previous leaders. Now, I do not think given the current situation where I mean, the immediate crisis is over. There was an initial attack Mody said, we're not gonna take this anymore. And we're gonna teach you a lesson. There was a flare up of stability and the shooting down of the plane, but after the handing back of the captured Indian fighter pilot back to India and an immediate de-escalation. It looks to me and to most strategic analysts that the phase of hostilities is over and I don't think India could just all of a sudden out of a blue suddenly strike at Pakistan, again, the international community would react very strongly to that. India actually had support from the international community for doing it. There have been signaling from the United States that they would accept something like this. But that is only because they felt India had behaved so responsibly and with such restraint in the face of past provocations. So I don't think like suddenly out of the blue. We're gonna wake up and find that, you know, motive for some domestic political reasons without any provocation has launched a new attack on puck. Stan, However, I do feel and many fear that if there is some kind of next terror attack in India between now and the end of the election or even after the election that India has set a new threshold, and it will be really compelled and determined kind of react once again with military force, which could then lead to a whole 'nother cycle of esscalation on violence. So spy gunman came into power in August, two thousand eighteen we immediately resolved that you know, we cannot take the stance anymore where you have these armed groups in our country a legacy of the von jihad in the eighties. We cannot afford being blamed for any terrorist activity like Barama like what happened. So we've already cracked. Down on them. We all these dispensing the whole setup in a state. The monopoly of force arms has to be the state. You can't have groups operating here. Because whatever the reasons of creating the groups, and we know the militant groups were created to fight the jihad it makes no sense right now. So it's for our own self interest that we need to get it of the groups Stephanie Mr Hahn was insistent that he has done more than any other recent Pakistani leader to disband militant groups in Pakistan is this convincing. He has made an effort he has closed. A lot of the Madras says the schools he has shut down around two hundred of those. He has also arrested scores of people linked to terrorist groups, and we have seen this before from Pakistan. So the question is whether or not he'll be able to keep up the momentum. That is what everybody is watching and one. During about because in the past we've seen similar crackdowns only to scale back once the international pressure is off something that is encouraging though is that Pakistan is working to meet the condition set by the financial action task force which works to control and stop financing to terrorists. And this is something that is new for Pakistan, and it's designed to target financial flows to terrorist groups, and they were put on the grey list and in order to get off the grey list. They have to meet certain conditions, and they have made changes. However in a recent review fat of said, look, you're not doing enough. You know, the legislation may be there, but the action on the ground or an essence the enforcement of these new policies is not being done enough. So Pakistan wants to get off the grey list. They really want to bring investment in. In their economy is in dire straits. So hopefully, this provides enough pressure to see some reform in an area that has been a big issue the link this is a moment, but the dash mobile that India, the boy who blew himself up nineteen year old boy was a Kashmiri Indian boy, and he is better and said how he was radicalize. Some abuse by the security force. So it was it was an Indian boy Indian operation Indian car and then explosive why was Pakistan blamed Michigan says he doesn't have enough evidence to arrest Masud as head of the Pakistan based Jesse Mohammed. Does he have a point when he says the Paloma attack was planned and carried out in India itself, the Pam attack happened in Indian administered? Kashmir, the attacker is believed to be a local man, but the responsibility for the attack was claimed by j Muhammad which is a group operating in Pakistan, India handed over a dossier on Jewish Muhammad leader Masuda czar, prime minister controlled me, in our interview that he had the dossier, but still there was not enough evidence to bring the leader to court and in the absence of that he was doing all he could to crack down on terrorism in Pakistan and. He redirected blame to India and the security situation in Kashmir it's been

"I don't think once inherently better than the other they serve different purposes and different uses. But it's not just that. We're lacking good decentralized credit scoring systems decentralized identity systems that makes. This way that we do things there's always the risk, even if you have a strong credit scoring system if somebody has their identities stolen than you would end up not lending to who you think you're lending to and what this ensures is as a lender. Even if the person who's borrowing acids from you has their keys stolen, her has aspects of their identity stolen. You're still not exposed to the risk of the person who's committed after fraud on the other end. And so now, let's dive into superfluid collateral. Like what how does that work? Exactly, walk us through an example. So one example for this would be looking at the the makeup of the maker dial clutter allies deposition kind of landscape right by the definition in the protocol. Today, you need to have a minimum of one hundred and fifty percents of the loan value in east locked collateral. If it drops below that your CDs at risk of liquid nation at thirteen percent penalty. Now thirteen percent penalties pretty bad. So a lot of people maintain these really really high like basically collateral to loan value ratios, and it's typically around three hundred percent on average across the system. So that means even in an overclouded I system twice as much collateral as strictly necessary is currently being locked up. So some Jane the critter instep proposed a system that they're building to actually pull the CD peas together and create almost like a giant CD where there are still essentially individual accounts within that, but any excess or a certain portion of the excess ethan's locked up would actually be deposited into compound and would be able to earn the supply APR essentially interest from being available through compound. But then whenever any the. The CPS got close to being danger of liquidation. The it could easily automats pull out that eath from compound and put it back into the CD to ensure it doesn't get liquidated. So that's the way where you would see a ethan's currently essentially deadweight loss in the Qasim is then instead made available to other people to borrow while still ensuring that the maker system doesn't take on significant additional risk by having under-collaterised piece. In a moment. We're gonna discuss more of the risks inherent in the system. But first a quick break from our fabulous servers ready or not the financial action task force anti money laundering recommendations soon, go into effect globally..
"financial action task force" Discussed on FinTech Insider
"As always unregulated recaptured. Does certainly seem like it's one of those issues that we're going to have to keep dealing with on the closeness of the banking industry to regulate. This does sound very familiar to the financial crisis. But it is of course, the challenge because you find former regulators want to get that big job, the the buying can make a lot more money. You find that the banks themselves are at the cutting edge and genuinely have the most information about what's really going on as well. So there's this constant double edged sword. It's a really challenging one. Those not like dansko bankers come out of this completely unscathed. Either. Even though there is this relationship that works both ways they've definitely suffered. As a result of the scandal. The share price hit five five year lows. They've issued most for profit warnings and ten people have been arrested by studying prosecutors on suspicion of helping clients transfers suspicious money through the Bank in a step systematic and coordinated manner. It was definitely something that seems pretty planned. It's certainly good to see at least something happening in that space. But then the scale of this two hundred billion is just still I watering large. I mean that is more than all of crypto that would build you four hundred hospitals that is an absolutely phenomenal sum of money. And I come back to the processes for how you prevent this still a piece of paper with questions like where did you get that money? I wouldn't gambling great. We follow the process, but it really encourages me. The financial action task force the global body that works with governments to manage AML risk as now moved from do we have a process to how effective is your process and you'll see them starting to lean on sovereign through the twenty to start to tweak that I think historically had been okay for a bike to say to a regulator up, but I have a process, but actually what that meant is the same old crappy process that was done in paper in which customers hated would get more. And more entrenched rather than somebody sort of saying actually, can we do this differently? Can we do something that's more secure? And the better experience is the Bank sang going to process, you Mr. regulator to follow this process because we're that powerful. That's the way it goes. I think that's I think that's kind of the the sentiment. I drew when I read read about this read about this news in particular feels to me, this is a hang on a minute. You know, they just too big too big to fail and all that sort of stuff. But actually, they say that this demanding of the regulators to allow them to to do what they will with their processes that. They've put in place, and I think that's that's coming out here a little bit, which is actually who who's in control. And I think that too big to fail. Absolutely. I mean to be to jail apparently not because of ten arrests. So far think sort of reminds me the end of the big short movie where the raiders have says. Then were under duress. And that was that was Justice everyone. And then actually it's like actually just joke. No, one got arrested pretty much to arrested, and they would build up by the taxpayer. Hopefully with the the rest we're seeing now then you will that accountability is not replication of what we saw the financial crisis. I think it's more question of. Accountability on what scale because we know that ten people have been arrested. But we don't know who they are dansko said they've identified forty two former employees that were possibly volved in it. But that you executive he just stood down. Now might be setting up another company probably going to get away scot-free manager stonier. I think he used to be. Head of international initials, head of international markets. He used to have oversight over the operations in Estonia before he became the gun for nine years or something. Right. So the amount of people would have had fingers in this guy is much more than ten people. It's weird. How falling on your sword. The we is seen as kind of almost honorable even committed massive or ledge to have committed massive crimes. It's really concerning to me though, that the solutions to this the doable. But historically, this has been seen as a compliance problem..
