Greenfire supports blockchain business and technology. It is a belief held by Greenfire that business is growing into a blockchain technology based accountability system that will provide the move into a more sound money system. Aaryn Prettyman   Maybe you’ve heard the term “blockchain” but aren’t quite sure what it is. You’d be in good company. However you may want to start learning, as it just may be a technology platform that changes the ARM industry someday. In super-simple terms, blockchain is a decentralized way of keeping track of what is “true” (i.e. who owns what, who has signed what, who has paid what, etc.). This decentralized mechanism is called a “distributed ledger” – imagine a town checkbook, but instead of living in city hall, everyone in the town has a copy of it. Each time an entry is made it must be validated by everyone with a copy, and then everyone’s copy is updated. Each update is a new “block” in the “chain,” and each block needs all the other blocks to form the whole picture. The result is said to be a highly secure, transparent, interdependent chain.  Today, most information is tracked in major centralized databases owned by one company (or government) or another. As we know, these databases are often vulnerable to hackers, they are not at all transparent, and they can be difficult to get corrected when they are wrong. This has created a lack of trust in our systems, and makes it frustrating to do business. Blockchain was first used to manage bitcoin, the new kind of electronic currency that pretty much operates on the fringe. But many are now experimenting with a wide range of other, more mainstream uses. One example is that the State of Arizona has just passed a bill giving legal status to smart contracts and blockchain based signatures. Here’s what the bill says, "A signature that is secured through blockchain technology is considered to be in an electronic form and to be an electronic signature. A record or contract that is secured through blockchain technology is considered to be in an electronic form and to be an electronic record. Smart contracts may exist in commerce. A contract relating to a transaction may not be denied legal effect, validity or enforceability solely because that contract contains a smart contract term. For the purposes of this section: “Blockchain technology” means distributed ledger technology that uses (more…)

Published on Dec 28, 2014 Gerald Celente, Publisher of the Trends Journal, says, “All it takes is a shock wave to end the game. You don’t know where it’s going to come from, but the stage is being set for a shock wave. . . . On one end, they can keep the interest rates low. On another end, they can even invent another quantitative easing (money printing) scheme. But on the bigger end, you have volatility in the world commodity markets and geopolitics that could end this scam in a second. . . . All the pieces keep adding up into a very serious economic and geopolitical game changer for 2015.” On war, Celente says, “It’s getting so easy to take the people to war. . . . Hatred is very easy to build between and among nations. So, I believe as these economic house of cards continue to collapse, they will get the people’s mind off it in a snap by getting us into more war. As I say, when all else fails, they take you to war because you can see the path. Go back to the crash of 1929, recession: depression, currency war, trade war then world war. Sound familiar?

This is the basic information about the global economy. We all know that the global currencies, fiat currencies all of them, are going to collapse.

There are 24 clips from 2 minutes to 20 minutes long. You’ll be glad you did. The Crash Course has provided millions of viewers with the context for the massive changes now underway, as economic growth as we’ve known it is ending due to depleting resources.

Sanctioned Russian banks begin testing national payment system next week RIA Novosti / Maksim Bogodvid RIA Novosti / Maksim Bogodvid 367254 Tags Banking, Economy, Finance, Russia and the global economy Russia’s Rossiya and SMP banks, which fell under Western sanctions, are among the eight lenders that will start testing the country’s new national payment system on December 15. “The pilot project involves SMP Bank and Rossiya Bank, those for which the story is very critical and important. These are quite large banks,” the head of the Russian National payment system (NPS) Vladimir Komlev said in an interview with Rossiya 24 TV. The move comes as a part of Russia’s ambitious initiative to move away from the Western dominance of its financial markets. Last month the Russian Central Bank said it would have its own international inter-bank payment system, an alternative to the global SWIFT network up and running by May 2015. READ MORE: Russia to launch alternative to SWIFT bank transaction system in spring 2015 Gazprombank, Rosbank, Alfa Bank and Ural Bank for Reconstruction and Development are among eight other banks to join the pilot project. They were selected based on the size of business, location and technology platform, Komlev said. Another bank involved in NPS testing is Russia’s second largest VTB. Recently its management has been vocal about the need to make Russia’s financial system more self-sufficient and ditch the US Dollar, Vedomosti reports. READ MORE: Russia could ditch US dollar in 2-3 years – head of Russia’s #2 bank The bank will soon connect to the NPS to test the system and be ready for any potential difficulties with payments in the future. Komlev said the new system’s principle of operating will remain the same. The use of the existing formats will be more convenient for banks; they won’t have to reconfigure their software. The latest version of the NPS technology is being tested by the Russian Openway Solutions company. “The modules themselves are something unique, independent, only partly related to the Openway. Now all this belongs to us: our code, the knowledge of how the system is built, and its logic. We are able to develop it and provide support,” said Komlev. NPS was established in 2014 after a number of Russian banks were hit by US and EU sanctions. In March international payment systems Visa and MasterCard stopped servicing cards issued by the banks following the (more…)

TODAY’S NOTICE This is another attempt at the degradation of the people.  This agreement takes away all of your ability to create anything new and have it belong to you. The TPP takes your intellectual rights and makes it the “CORPORATIONS”.  The following countries have or are at the point of signing on the this agreement. Take Notice, do something! Tyranny exists only if you allow it. M Published on Nov 14, 2013 Mike Papantonio, Ring of Fire Radio joins Thom Hartmann. Wikileaks has released another bombshell – this time publishing a portion of text from the secretly negotiated Trans Pacific Partnership. Now that the text is out in the open – will lawmakers in Washington finally realize how devastating the TPP is to the American economy?   httpv://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bPIsjH25GHo More to notice The Trans-Pacific Partnership Agreement “The Trans-Pacific Partnership Agreement (“TPP”) is a free trade agreement currently being negotiated by nine countries: The United States, Australia, Brunei Darussalam, Chile, Malaysia, New Zealand, Peru, Singapore, and Vietnam. Although the TPP covers a wide range of issues, this site focuses on the TPP’s intellectual property (IP) chapter. The TPP suffers from a serious lack of transparency, threatens to impose more stringent copyright without public input, and pressures foreign governments to adopt unbalanced laws.”  http://tppinfo.org/ Alan Grayson On Trans-Pacific Partnership: Obama Secrecy Hides ‘Assault On Democratic Government’   “Unelected corporate officials are given access to negotiation documents by virtue of their positions on U.S. Trade Representative advisory panels. Corporate representatives account for about 500 of the “cleared advisors” on those panels, while representatives of organized labor, environmental and other groups account for about 100 others. These cleared advisers are not permitted to discuss provisions with the press or the public. On Thursday, Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) sent a letter to Michael Froman, Obama’s nominee to head USTR, asking the agency to release negotiation documents to the public. In the letter, Warren noted that the head labor advisory committee had complained of “severe restrictions” USTR had imposed on the panel’s access to negotiation information. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/06/18/alan-grayson-trans-pacific-partnership_n_3456167.html Share this:FacebookLinkedInTwitterGoogleTumblrPinterestReddit (more…)
