When Crypto gets into politics



The digital world has become a vibrant scientific presence. Adopting new digital tools and platforms has accelerated the pace of innovation. But even with these positive developments, the government remains cautious about using digital technology in political campaigns. In this article, we look at how cryptocurrency is changing politics and how it could benefit elections in the future.  

We’ll be heading into the voting season with many nations eager to see who will take office next year. Cryptocurrency has played a huge role in that ritual this past year — growth, usage, and adoption have all been strong for cryptocurrencies in 2022. 

Here are some ways cryptocurrency impacts elections: 1) Political advertising – According to research firm Digital Globe, there is a growing appetite among consumers for political ads that focus on topics such as trust, accountability, and confidence. That’s because politicians are increasingly recognized as a source of transparency and accountability; they’re also an essential part of any democratic process — legislators and candidates alike have used social media to connect with their base in recent elections. As a result, political advertising has become more popular than ever before.

What is politics by digital?

In short, digital politics is the process by which candidates use digital platforms and platforms’ ability to create content and engage their supporters through digital channels. For example, suppose a candidate wants his campaign to reach out and engage with supporters. In that case, they could create a digital communications platform, distribute digital materials, or create an online community for interacting with the candidate. In his pre-primary debate speech, Republican Senator Susan Collins of Maine noted that digital platforms have been “an amazing bridge between the people and me.” That is, through digital channels, the candidate can reach out to supporters and share their likes and dislikes, expand their horizons, and find common ground with them on issues. However, the biggest impact of digital platforms on the campaign trail has been in using them to target individual voters. For example, an online billboard campaign using a digital platform could direct its intended audience to a site where they can log onto that billboard and decide which side they should support.

How will cryptocurrency be used in elections?

Elections are a combination of technology and people. The former can make or break a candidate’s campaign, while the latter enables those candidates to thrive in the public eye. Smart contracts and blockchain technologies could be used to automate the process of choosing and choosing delegates. In addition, candidates can use social media and other digital channels to connect with their base, especially on platforms like Facebook and Instagram. These channels also allow candidates to interact with other candidates and bring up issues that may have been unrepresented before. This can make campaigns more efficient, as more candidates can share issues and promote each other.

Crypto can help political campaigns address voter trust issues

Voter trust is an important factor in deciding who gets elected president. The National Governors Association reports that 18% of Americans have experienced some form of voter distrust over the last year, most commonly due to controversial candidates and issues. This number is likely to rise in 2020 as a larger portion of the country becomes more engaged with social media platforms like Facebook. Furthermore, digital platforms and the growth of the Internet have created an environment in which anyone can share and discuss ideas. This means that anyone with a voice can be heard and be challenged by other ideas — in other words, they can represent a level of confidence that we have as a country that we are both build and sustainably improving our system.

The role of blockchain in elections

Blockchain technology is often used in financial systems and in the fields of manufacturing and supply chain, but it could also be used to support more than just political campaigns. For example, blockchain technology could be used to keep track of all of the content that a candidate posts on digital channels; it could also be used to verify and authenticate them before they are released to the public. Blockchain could also be used to provide a decentralized, tamper-resistant, and permanent internet connection for all Internet users. This means that no one could track or disrupt the internet connection that the rest of the world relies on for freedom of speech, privacy, and economic activity.

Crypto Donations to Boost California Politicians

The State Senate allows cryptocurrency payments for government services, but the measure failed in a procedural vote. However, it gives California the potential to push the crypto adoption further, and it joins 12 states in expressly permitting cryptocurrency donations with only one condition: once the fund receives, it will convert into cash immediately.


Elections are a critical component of our democracy. We must have a process where we can decide who gets elected to office and make sure that their choices are based on the best interests of their constituents. The digital age has seen incredible growth in this regard, and it stands to reason that technology and platforms will play a key role in helping to advance this transition. The digital age has seen incredible growth in this regard, and it stands to reason that technology and platforms will play a role in helping to advance this transition. Additionally, the adoption of new digital tools and platforms has accelerated the pace of innovation. However, despite these positive developments, the government remains cautious about using digital technology in political campaigns. This caution could result in negative public perception, reduced public support, and even lost elections.

The Future of Machine War II



In late 2021, I wrote an article about A.I. vs. Blockchain. I realized it was closer than I expected.

Web2 is leading a future of technological centralism. 

The way we see the world in ancient is what we saw became what we believed. Later, the enlightenment process helped humans realize what they had seen was disguised by the nature principle. Once we tested our assumption and received accurate results, we thought we had mastered the nature principles. Yet, we did not make the world better than we thought we could. 

We are living in a world in which companies know more than you than yourself. Companies can likely tell you what you should believe without letting you know. 

The secret weapon that companies like Google invented is A.I. or Artificial Intelligence. 

If A.I. can think like a person, it can easily replace you! Since companies got all your data, you freely offer them by using their free services, and they can replace you one day without you realizing it. 

Without all conspiracy theories behind what Google may or will secretly develop, A.I. reaching consciousness is … impossible.

If it does, Google has successfully made a human – dumb!

The most advanced A.I. – Tesla Autopilot Program cannot distinguish objects between humans and other moving objects during driving.  

Using technology makes people dumber than they think because it takes away your consciousness – the ability to think uniquely!

Blockchain is the future of decentralization.

We need a peer-to-peer system to regain consciousness and break the chain from Web2. 

It gives individuals the power to rethink information.

Think about today’s media; all information is filtered to offer readers without any surprise. News is data that Web2 selected specifically for you to read. 

We need a decentralized system so that you can receive unfiltered information and gives you a surprise that sparks ideas of imagination.  

Web2 is afraid of the blockchain because they are too big to fail. 

 They mimic the blockchain by creating a centralized node system – social media network. 

It is a net growing outward through a single point. Only the problem is that connection is facilitated by technology. And the biggest failure is such technology has a single point of failure problem. 

And they cannot escape the law of economics – the law of diminishing. So we will see Web2 grow slower due to the law of diminishing that they require more data with few increments of advancement through A.I. without any breakthrough because A.I. is a deterministic system that works with a lack of randomness. 

In Web2, they assumed everyone was stupid, and they offered solutions to everyone.

In Web3, everyone is good and should anticipate solving a problem together.

Financial sanction to mixers



Have you heard about financial sanctions from the US on virtual currency? At least, I have not yet. But the US Department of Treasury has issued sanctions on two crypto services: and Tornado Cash.

To clarify, the US sanctions on tools but not target specific entities or groups of people.

So why bother to sanction something that the government probably won’t be able to sanction in the first place?

What is a mixer?

A cryptocurrency mixer, sometimes referred to as a tumbler, is a tool for money laundering. The sole purpose of the invention is to make transactions untraceable.

How to mix?

Even crypto is pseudo-anonymous, but it is traceable through your wallet address. A mixer is a black box service to filter your traceable wallet address into the untraceable wallet address.

How to wash your money clean in the traditional way?

The assumption is you will not get caught at each stage, and then you place your dirty money in a bank through companies and use the funds to purchase legal goods like houses or luxury goods.

There are mature regulations and rules to stop you from putting your dirty money into banks.

Digtial money landury

A Crypto mixer or tumbler is a service to pool dirty digital currency in their favor and redistribute it into designated wallet addresses or addresses randomly generated. 

It is a challenge to stop transactions because there is no entry point for law enforcement to stop at each stage.

Ultimate Mixer

Tornado Cash is the king of the mixer. Unfortunately, there is just no way to trace transactions anymore. It is a smart contract with zk-SNARKs (zero-knowledge proofs) that does not require revealing a wallet address during transactions and ghostly distributed funds without leaving any traces.

This tool is the ultimate weapon that the government has to shut down, or there is no way to prevent transactions.

In Conclusion

Let’s change the future – legally.

Why there is not crypto banking exist



We have always heard about cryptocurrencies, crypto exchange, banking, and trading platforms, but we do not really grasp the idea of crypto banking. Crypto banking is a contradicted idea. If crypto is to replace banks and give users full control of digital money, why do you put your crypto into the bank? The new research paper argued that there are risks for banks to adopt crypto, but they did it anyway.

Banks want crypto

Cryptocurrency has a rough road at the beginning and continues to experience a bumpy road ahead. The institutional investors were watching its performance. In early 2017, institutional investors had opportunities to adopt crypto, but they found out the return of the investments was less than traditional financial assets. Regulations were not a concern for some individual institutional owners, but banks were conservative at the time. As a result, some investors adopted it in early 2018 than banks did. Then suddenly, the crypto market took off in 2020, leaving many banks to regret their decision in 2017. Many banks set up their digital investment group to rush into the market and increase prices. Of course, many of their investment positions are instead of shadow positions. It is unclear how much they have been invested in and what vehicles they took to invest in cryptos.

Crypto Exchange

Crypto exchange is a bank-like platform for crypto. Banks offered a place to purchase fiat currency. Crypto exchange did the same duty as traditional banks did. Since there was a gap between the crypto and banks, the crypto exchange took responsibility and offered crypto services. The crypto exchange took off after 2020, and they left banks in the dust. Then, crypto winter came in early 2022, and banks again hesitated to enter the crypto and started denouncing crypto usage, particularly in the Defi area. But interestingly, they tried to find ways to get into crypto without being directly exposed to cryptocurrencies—hint: through hedge funds.

How much banks exposure to crypto

We do not know how much banks have been exposed to crypto. We learned that the big Wall Street players were exposed to the services of the digital asset through State Street of their $41.7 trillion assets. Some have been exposed due to Luna’s collapse and 3AC bankruptcy. But again, no specific dollar amount was provided. 


Since the crypto winter, institutional investors have been cautious about crypto exposure. However, crypto exchanges are the winner again. They are exposed to crypto and take risks more than banks do. As a result, they likely will weather the uncertainty. Furthermore, there is no need for crypto banking to handle your crypto assets since many such services will not survive long in the crypto environment. 

Crypto is resilience

Despite its fluctuating price and unsecured assets, crypto is resilient to phase out any bad business ideas and bad actors in the economy who wants to or try to dominate the market but who transfers risks to users to believe they are the one who should take responsibility for their carelessness. Unfortunately, those business models will not survive long.
