But the case is bigger than almost anyone realizes, and will set the precedent for how the ENTIRE INDUSTRY is regulated.Here is what the SEC argued in court:It doesn't matter if 75% of purchases are for utilityIt doesn't matter if the work isn't being done by sellerIt doesn't matter if the seller never uses investment languageAll that matters is where the token price is moves on the open market.This would mean that basically every cryptocurrency is a security.If the SEC wins, every person who works in the industry or has ever bought or sold crypto is guilty of trading illegal securities.Written by Joël Valenzuela and Naomi BrockwellInterview footage from Joël Valenzuela and John DeatonSee John Deaton's full interview with Jeremy Kauffman here:https://odysee.com/@CryptoLawTV:9/sec-v.-lbry-summary-judgement-arguments:9See Joël Valenzuela's response to the hearing for Digital Cash Network here:https://odysee.com/@DigitalCashNetwork:c/LBRYcaseYTS:eSupport the show

Most of us have had our cell phone numbers for many years, even decades, and we hand it out to everyone: to merchants, healthcare providers, social media accounts. That number can become associated to us like a social security number, and it allows all our interactions to be correlated.We need to ditch the idea that we have just one number our whole lives, that we give to everyone. In this video we're going to give an example of a clean up strategy you can use to lock down your existing number, and create multiple VoIP numbers not associated to your real world identity, that don't tie all your activities together.00:00 Why Handing Your Cell Number Out Is Dangerous02:36 VoIP vs Cell Number05:16 New Phone Strategy Overview05:47 Porting Existing Number to VoIP06:17 Number Porting/SIM Swap Attacks07:23 Google Voice Porting08:24 VoIP Communications are NOT PRIVATE10:10 New SIM10:26 Creating Multiple VoIP Numbers12:02 MySudoNote: The specific products mentioned are available in a few countries including America, but the overall ideas that you should never hand out your cell number, should lock down existing cell numbers by porting to voip, should get a new sim phone number you don't share with anyone, and should only use voip numbers going forward, are universal concepts.

    EU's TERRIFYING Mass Surveillance Plan - w/ Matthew Green

    A leaked document from the EU, proposing new regulation, describes the most sophisticated mass surveillance machinery ever deployed outside of China and the USSR.The proposal is for a new mass surveillance system that will read private text messages, not to detect CSAM, but to detect “grooming”.It would mandate scanning of encrypted messages for CSAM material.Once you open up “machines reading your text messages” for any purpose, there are no limits.Matthew Green, renowned security expert and cryptography professor, says:"Let me be clear what that means: to detect 'grooming' is not simply searching for known CSAM. It isn't using AI to detect new CSAM, which is also on the table.It's running algorithms reading your actual text messages to figure out what you're saying, at scale."Matthew and I dive into everything you need to know. 0:00 Pre-roll0:53 Intro2:00 The EU SILL SCAN Your Computers2:23 Matthew Green4:12 System will READ text messages between people to try to detect "grooming".7:52 "This is not voluntary."18:47 Targeting dissidents and election disinformation23:40 Apple's CSAM-scanning proposal27:38 Decentralization: "They can't win."30:55 Quiz Winner: Congratulations SpeedRacer111!32:40 Show Out and ThanksEU report:https://ec.europa.eu/home-affairs/system/files/2022-05/Proposal%20for%20a%20Regulation%20laying%20down%20rules%20to%20prevent%20and%20combat%20child%20sexual%20abuse_en_0.pdfBrought to you by NBTV members: Sam Ettaro, Will Sandoval, and Naomi BrockwellTo support NBTV, visit https://www.nbtv.media/support(tax-deductible in the US)Sign up for the free CryptoBeat newsletter here:https://cryptobeat.substack.com/Beware of scammers, I will never give you a phone number or reach out to you with investment advice.

    Once the most trusted search engine for private and neutral search results, Duck Duck Go, just announced that they will now be censoring and filtering content. It may have lost them their core userbase. We'll dive into some alternative search engines, and share Brave CEO Brendan Eich's responses about how Brave Search works.Also, it turns out that one of NYC's most iconic skyscrapers, shrouded in mystery for years with no publicly available information about it, is actually a giant NSA surveillance center. Codenamed TITANPOINTE, the center is hidden in plain sight right in the middle of Manhattan, but is actually one of the most important NSA surveillance sites on U.S. soil.Ryan Gallagher and Henrik Moltke wrote a couple of great pieces for the Intercept a while ago diving into these, which recently resurfaced again on Hacker News, that we'll explore on the show.Read the full investigation here:https://theintercept.com/2016/11/16/the-nsas-spy-hub-in-new-york-hidden-in-plain-sight/Laura Poitras, Henrik Moltke documentary:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SOJugaGK0eU0:00   Show Preroll0:53   Naomi's Show Intro1:29  Welcome2:30  Duck Duck Go's announcement4:46   The "Brave" Alternative6:26  Brendan Eich replies to Naomi on Twitter11:55   Intro to Main Story:  The NSA's Spy Hub In The Middle of NYC13:42   Background of the building's construction14:31  "The Intercept" reports 17:01   AT&T24:45   Domestic surveillance revelations26:28  The Blarney Project30:00  What the whistleblowers revealed33:02  AT&T and NSA respond37:06  NSA spying on Americans39:50   Opt out of surveillance services43:19   Show Out and ThanksBrought to you by NBTV members: Sam Ettaro, Will Sandoval, and Naomi BrockwellTo support NBTV, visit https://www.nbtv.media/support(tax-deductible in the US)Sign up for the free CryptoBeat newsletter here:https://cryptobeat.substack.com/Beware of scammers, I will never give you a phone number or reach out to you with investment advice.

    THIS 2-Factor-Authentication method is NOT secure!!

    If a hacker gets access to your email, bank, or crypto account, they can turn your life upside down. How secure are YOUR accounts?One thing that can help you secure them is to use 2fa (2-factor-authentication) where you have to use multiple methods to sign into an account, rather than just a single password on a website. 2FA makes your account MUCH more secure.But not all 2FA methods are create equal. For example SIM swaps allow hackers to intercept certain 2FA methods, so if your account is tied to a phone number then you're more vulnerable to being hacked.We dive into various 2FA methods, including SMS verification, TOTP apps (authenticator apps), and security keys (like YubiKey), explain which is the most secure, and also talk about the tradeoffs of each.For more info about 2FA, check out this awesome article from Paul Stamatiou: https://paulstamatiou.com/getting-started-with-security-keys/Brought to you by NBTV members: Lee Rennie, Will Sandoval, Ogar, and Naomi BrockwellTo support NBTV, visit https://www.nbtv.media/support(tax-deductible in the US)Sign up for the free CryptoBeat newsletter here:https://cryptobeat.substack.com/Beware of scammers, I will never give you a phone number or reach out to you with investment advice.

    Bank of America just released their “Digital Assets: In the Flow” report.
