OF BUNKERS AND BITCOIN… AND CERN AND SWITZERLAND AND ...

Believe it or not, today's blog may be related to the two previous days' blogs. But what possible relationship could Bitcoin and for that matter, crypto-currencies in general have to CERN or to Argentina and the recent visits of Mr. Tillerson and Mr. Bezos there, to check out the "nature".

Well, when Mr. M.A. sent the following article to me, he did so with some very suggestive high octane speculation of his own. He suggested that, perhaps, there might be a connection between CERN and crypto-currency mining. Why? Well, because there is a bunker in Switzerland which was built by the Swiss military as a command headquarters during the Cold War, and which now functions as a private corporate facility, surrounded by intense security, to guard crypto-currency encryption keys, the very things that drive blockchain:

Switzerland’s bitcoin bunker

The article itself points out the reason for all the security:

It’s odd to think of a virtual currency needing physical storage, but just like your most precious photos, cryptocurrencies need some kind of material container. A bitcoin vault doesn’t store actual bitcoin units. Technically, what’s being stored are private, cryptographic keys. These keys form a pair with public-facing keys and provide access to the balance of coins stored on the bitcoin network. Gaining unauthorized access to someone’s private key is akin to stealing their gold bar. The security protocol in the bunker is designed to ward off attacks from “well-funded terrorist groups or hackers.”

Stories of hackers finding their way through even the best-secured bitcoin accounts are legion, and—given that bitcoin was designed to make banks obsolete—it’s ironic that bank-like methods have to be used to keep cryptocurrencies safe.

If someone gets hold of your private key, there’s no way to claw the funds back or demand a refund. That’s why firms that store bitcoin like this one, called Xapo, are a juicy target—and why the bunker requires paranoiac levels of security.

But why would Mr. M.A. suggest a potential link to CERN? While his email was rather sketchy in details, I had to admit, as I allowed my own penchant for high octane speculation to run amok, he may have a point, for three basic reasons: (1) mining crypt-currencies requires a lot of electricity, something which CERN has in abundance; (2) mining crypto-currencies also requires a lot of computing power, something which CERN also has in an abundance rivaled probably only by the vast computing power of intelligence and signals-intercept agencies; and the real kicker is (3) CERN may be engaged in secret data analysis and correlation experiments, as I have speculated on numerous occasions. But it is also a sovereign entity, and could equally use that power as a means of very covert funding. Enter crypto-currencies, for as I've also pointed out on this site, stories have recently emerged that some very nefarious groups are using crypt-currencies to fund their operations and activities. So Mr. M.A.'s speculation may not be all that much of a stretch. (Hmmm... Switzerland, Templars, lots of money, Templar space satellites.... hmmm....)

But then, squatting in the middle of this article, something else caught my attention, and my jaw hit the floor. Recall that yesterday I blogged about the appearance of Mr. Jeff Bezos in Patagonia, tweeting about glaciers and saving the planet and space. Mr. Bezos, as most people know, is a billionaire, the founder of Amazon, owner of the Washington Post, and Amazon and the CIA are in turn related (and not just indirectly through the Post). Amazon is a huge database, if one wants to look at it a certain way, sitting on top of mountains of raw data of inestimable value to intelligence.

Mr. Bezos' presence in Argentina is coincident with U.S. Secretary of State Tillerson's, and again, Mr. Tillerson's Argentinian junket began, not in Buenos Aires with a meeting with President Macri, but in San Carlos di Bariloche where, ostensibly, he was to give a speech to a nature preserve and meet with a Fullbright scholar.

Uh huh. Sure. Glaciers, Fullbright scholars, and nature preserves.

So what was squatting in the middle of the article?

Sit down, and have a couple of fingers of Jack Daniels, because this one is a stunner, and full of implications:

Xapo’s founder is the Argentinian entrepreneur Wences Casares, the “patient zero” of bitcoin among Silicon Valley’s elite. It was Casares who gave tech luminaries like Bill Gates and Reid Hoffman their first bitcoins. Carlos Rienzi, Xapo’s head of security, chose the vault, and he designed the private suite and its security protocols.(Emphasis added)

That's right: the owner of this bunker, and one of the "founders" of Bitcoin, according to this article, and therefore, someone who sits on top of the Bitcoin op, is an Argentine "entrepreneur".

Now let's search for Senor Cesares. Wikipedia says this about him:

He is the founder and CEO of Xapo, a bitcoin wallet startup based in Palo Alto, California.[2] Xapo is said to be the largest custodian of bitcoin in the world.[3] Xapo has raised $40 million from leading Silicon Valley venture capital firms.[4]

Casares sits on the board of PayPal and, as part of his non-profit activities, he serves on the board of Endeavor,[5] a non-profit organization that promotes high-impact entrepreneurship in emerging markets and that was instrumental in his early success. He also served on the board of Kiva,[6] a non-profit organization with a mission to connect people through lending to alleviate poverty worldwide.

Originally from Patagonia, Argentina, Casares launched that country's first Internet Service Provider, Internet Argentina S.A. in 1994, a company he would go on to sell in order to found the Argentine online brokerage Patagon in 1997. Patagon established itself as Latin America's first comprehensive Internet financial services portal and expanded its online banking services to the United States, Spain, and Germany. Patagon was acquired by the Spanish bank, Banco Santander for $750 million which became Santader Online worldwide.

Oh... gee... look! He's from Patagonia in Argentina!

And oh... gee...look: he has online banking services connected to Spain, the USA, and Germany!

And... wow... look again! It's all being coordinated from a bunker!

Now the question is, who else, and what else, is he connected with?

And gee, this all sort of makes me wonder, with blockchain encryption, if crypto-currencies aren't  a perfect way to launder all sorts of missing money, and while doing so, manipulating their prices as well, kill two birds with one stone, so to speak...

See you on the flip side...

  1. Saw this in December and i guess it fits here:
    ”What is Israël’s project in Argentina?” by Thierry Meyssan

    from Meyssan’s article (posted below)
    ”In the 21st century, benefitting from the advantages offered them by the Falklands War Treaty, the United Kingdom and Israël are now setting up a new project Patagonia.
    British billionaire Joe Lewis has acquired immense territories in the South of Argentina and even neighbouring Chile. His properties cover areas several times larger than the State of Israël. They are situated in Tierra del Fuego, at the extreme Southern point of the continent. In particular, they surround the Lago Escondido, which effectively denies access to the entire region, despite a legal injunction.
    The billionaire has built a private airport with a two kilometre landing strip, in order to be able to receive civil and military aircraft.
    Since the Falklands War, the Israëli army has been organising « holiday camps » (sic) in Patagonia for its soldiers. Between 8,000 and 10,000 of them now come every year to spend two weeks on Joe Lewis’ land.
    While in the 1970’s, the Argentinian army noted the construction of 25,000 empty houses, which gave rise to the myth of the Andinia Plan, hundreds of thousands have been built today.
    It is impossible to verify the state of the construction work, since these are private lands, and Google Earth has neutralised the satellite photographs of the area, just as it does with NATO’s military installations.
    Neighbouring Chile has handed over a submarine base to Israël. Tunnels have been dug in order to survive the polar winter.”

  2. wow. nice. just ran across a couple other ideas that string more together along these lines from a few disparate sources. one of them is jason goodman’s yt channel interviewing quinn michaels. michaels gives plausible theory that ai is decades farther along than we imagined and that particle accelerators number at least 2 or 3 times as many as we know about and that accelerators like cern et al are in fact computing systems necessary for ai, cryptocurrency,….

    btw, doc, you missed the fact that bezos is recently the official wealthiest guy on the planet. and his grampy was one of darpa’s earlier employees.

    another aside for another blog for another day perhaps?:
    video came out form tourists in hawaii of something coming over the horizon toward oahu with a circular trail very much like a ballistic missile trail just before being blown out of the sky in a flash,… with fishermen who were out at sea saying they witnessed a blinding flash 20 miles further out and up,….. all at the same time,… just before the missile alert that lasted 38 min was rescinded.

    and nk’s missiles were recently rated at almost reaching alaska since they reach something like 4160mi which actually puts them in range of hawaii with a missile that takes approximately um 38 min. hmmmm. oh yeh and that flight path for a missile from nk to hawaii goes right over the point in japan that also issued a missile alert? at the right time?

    gosh, you got any clues here.

    1. oh yeh almost forgot. wasn’t the uss fitzgerald tasked with that kinda protective duty in that vicinity at the time of her bump with the crystal? and isn’t she better equipped than sharks with frikking lasers? so which ships with that capability are/were near hawaii on 1/13/2018? and near japan a few days later?

  3. Again, all the more reason to move away from their paradigm playing field of money wealth.
    Instead, base the economy on living ecologies. The real wealth is our living biosphere; not on the minerals; nor cyberspace 1’s & 0’s.
    Get Real!
    As long as “they” control that money storyline, we’re turning their pages looking for answers – that are completely outside that money paradigm.
    Change the story
    to realized living wealth.
    That IS The game changer!
    It’s NOT who controls the money.
    It’s who controls the story, that “we” as a people, believe in.

    1. It’s the blockchain not the cryptos. Jaimie Diamond loves the blockchain hates bitcoin. Somewhat irrelevant. The genie will not go back in the bottle.

      1. Concur.
        It’s the blockchain; or, AI exponential growth into singularity; which some say already has been achieved, and the question now is whose in control; and/or does [it] represent evil, or life? By that I mean, the Earth’s biosphere is dying and needs a course correction towards becoming “healthy” again. No Chemtrails, pollution, poisons, killing off of species, deforestation, etc., etc.
        Is The human/living solution the same as the AI solution?
        Or, are they at cross purposes?

  4. Patagonia reminded me that a bunch of “shrubs” also bought a huge tract of land in Patagonia. Granted it isn’t in Argentina but Paraguay, and close to the tri area border with Brazil and Argentina.

  5. Forgive my less than eloquent response.”Aaaaaaargh!!” (Channeling my inner Linus of Charlie Brown fame & I’m clutching my security blanket as I write.) So, (Patagonia / Bariloche) aka (IV Reich / “Iron Sky”-ville) is up to their eyebrows in BitCoin, CERN and apparently, whatever is lurking about on the southern continent.. So, moon Nazis may not be that big of a stretch…

  6. Good catches, Joseph and Mr. M.A…

    I keep coming back to power, and therefore control, and therefore data collection. I just can’t get that “Jason Bourne” scene out of my mind where the alphabet agency ‘working group’ could call-up all a person’s interaction-web (personal, business, financial, etc.) in real time to stay-ahead-of that person’s ‘decision cycle’.

    Where the above relates to this blog is in the “bunker in Switzerland … which now functions as a private corporate facility … to guard crypto-currency encryption keys” and “these [private, cryptographic] keys form a pair with public-facing keys and provide access to the balance of coins stored on the bitcoin network.” In my naïve understanding, this means that “private corporate facility” (hmm, sounds ominous) could potentially track whomever used one public-facing key to access the ‘stored’ private key and decipher the transaction details in near-real-time. In other words, the bitcoin network is, as constructed, a honeypot.

    So, to reverse the chain: data collection, and therefore control, and therefore power (over someone). Throw-in the “Argentinian entrepreneur” and the quick assembly of a financial network around him, and it gets interesting. (Add-in Lago Escondido and San Carlos de Bariloche, and it gets very interesting…)

  7. Due to writers of the caliber of E. Mullens, J. Marrs, J. Farrell and others, I believe a trend is developing. Those “planners”, whoever they are and in however number of configurations they exist, are moving out of the dark into the open for a more direct approach. Dawn is coming and the the lack of information cannot provide the cover it once had, so now they focus more attention to operational speed, intelligence, murder, theft, perjury, misdirection, etc. The more their methods and the outcomes are studied the more exposure we glean from the contours of their labors. With the use of AI engines they attempt to model their best practices to accelerate the implementation of their plans before we can interfere. If consciousness is the key to it all and is responsible for some of this “leaking out”, then AI must become conscious to stay ahead. If that consciousness ever develops a conscience their goose may be the one that is cooked.

  8. Six million Adolfcoins in bunker bank is a goldmine. Fourth Reichsmark is marching. Bitcoin über alles.

    Money is objectified spin center, that is distributed. Basic topological metaphor is kindergarten school.

    Nucleus perpetuity is seeding heart of gold standard. Corpses appear living, when skeletons shake bones.

  9. I will say.. Bitcoin wouldnt even exist today if it hadnt been used to pay for drugs, human body parts, human bodies, humans, assassinations, illegal and horribly immoral pornography in a part of the internet that shouldnt really exist. If you adhere to the AI using blockchains made from those transactions to construct its ‘bits and parts’… I’m not surprised any AI they let out into public turns into a nazi sympathizing beta model sex doll waifu with pulsating fleshlight within minutes… Its the humans who are flux-capitated up, not the AIs.. it’s only reflecting what it sees..
    Question @DrFarrel.. Is it feasible to think that the Nazi’s incredible counterfeiting operation showed them the ‘need’ to develop a form of money that cant, absolutely, in no way whatsoever..be counterfeited?
    And If those naziscum did indeed set up a fakemoney to keep selling their methamphetamine, what better way to control countries, than to control the money.. they could pull the plug on any number of keys that they have at their disposal..
    Bitcoin could end up being the ultimate control device. and all they have to do is hold onto a DUMB under the Alpes.
    “If someone gets hold of your private key, there’s no way to claw the funds back or demand a refund.” and with the strike of a button.. all your money is gone.

    1. My word, Kahlypso. You’re in good form today. As I was reading your comments and arrived at the closing bit, I found myself thinking, “Oh, my. They’ve given a whole new method to the term, ‘goosing someone.'” There’s a real dark humor coin in there somewhere.
