Home Defense Primer by Casa

> It’s unlikely that law enforcement will arrive at your home in less than 10 minutes if you report a physical security breach, so you must ask yourself: what will I do to keep my family and property safe if I can’t rely upon anyone but myself?

Trump administration to release new FinCEN requirements

https://www.theblockcrypto.com/post/55734/trump-administration-to-release-new-fincen-requirements-for-cryptos-mnuchin-tells-congress

> Mnuchin offered few details on the move when speaking before the Senate Finance Committee. However, he remarked that "specifically on cryptocurrencies, we are spending a lot of time on this, on both an interagency basis and with the regulators."

> “We're about to roll out some significant new requirements at FinCEN," he said during the hearing, though he offered no specifics on the timing of the move.

> “We want to make sure that technology moves forward, but on the other hand, we want to make sure that cryptocurrencies aren't used for the equivalent of old Swiss secret number bank accounts,” he added.

> Later in the hearing, Mnuchin remarked that the effort is being undertaken “so that law enforcement can see where the money is going and that this isn’t used for money laundering.”
Dropbit users should withdraw all funds asap. The bitcoin wallet is non custodial so those funds shouldn't be at risk but the lightning wallet is custodial. Click the "withdraw from lightning" button then send all funds to a different wallet.

Since we have had multiple people reach out asking to donate as well as people offering to pay for posts we want to make our position clear.

We will never accept payment for posts on this channel. We are a small group of bitcoiners who are tired of all the noise and believe bitcoiners should have an easy way to stay up to date without it.

Fortunately operating this endeavor as a telegram channel will keep costs low but if you want to buy us a drink you have multiple options.

Lightning: tippin.me/@nobsbitcoin or @lntxbot
Samourai Users: paynym.is/+tinygrass555

If you want to donate on chain and don't use samourai then DM us and we can provide you an address.

As always, we appreciate feedback through DM as well -- @nobsbitcoin. Hope you find this feed useful. Our PGP key is attached to this message.
