Regulation 1506-AB47 requires financial institutions to verify the identities of recipients and senders for transactions involving self-hosted crypto wallets or wallets that are not provided by a financial institution or service. Examples of such wallets include hardware wallets or a wallet running on a user’s computer.
Brian Armstrong, CEO of cryptocurrency exchange Coinbase, had tweeted about the regulation last week. He stated that it could have “unintended side effects” and that it would “kill many of the emerging use cases” for cryptocurrencies. Four US congressmen urged the Treasury Department to consult with Congress stating:

I’ve rewritten this post several times over the years. It’s hard for me to present both sides fairly. I’m completely biased because I’ve been through it, so keep that in mind. This initial post does NOT describe how to cope with the aftermath of this choice. Here I’m trying to provide someone who is considering this operation with the knowledge I wish I had before the surgery. If this post has a positive response, then I’ll publish a followup where I describe how my life changed as a result of the surgery.

I decided to take Google’s Technical Support Fundamentals course online via Coursera because I wanted to encourage another close friend to finish this course. I’m at the end of week 4 and up to this point the content was very good. But as everyone knows, there’s nothing more frustrating than taking a multiple choice quiz when some of the answers on the quiz are wrong. Please Google Developers, Coursera, and Design@Coursera fix these questions.
I want to try to find the hardest thing I can think of and have GPT-3 respond to it. So I figure I’d give general relativity a go.
When you are trying to win over the other side arguing is not the way.
Forget what you value and believe. Focusing on what is important to you will not allow you to convince others of anything. Find out what the other side values and leverage their values to show them that that their argument is in conflict with their own values and beliefs.
Sometimes I hang out with people from diverse backgrounds. Two of my friends start arguing about pornography. The following question comes up, is pornography bad? …
TandaPay can allow any community of people to submit and verify their own insurance claims locally within their group. The protocol was designed to provide a guaranteed attestation to outside parties as to the validity of an insurance claim. It excels as a system which provides outsiders a record as to how the community reached consensus on a claim’s validity. It can allow communities to verify the contents of a whistleblower claim while simultaneously providing anonymity to the whistleblower. If an invalid claim is approved for payment then the community should collapse. The protocol provides specific guarantees for a group’s…
