The Bitcoin 5th column is real, and growing. Like deep cover Soviet moles but loyal to the ideals of a global individualist movement, not a socialist one.
We collect a regular paycheck, but watch the growing value of Bitcoin with more than idle interest. We might fit in as loyal corporate workers, but are secretly working to overthrow the economic system that allows the bourgeois management class to rule. Our manifestos come from Tim May and Eric Hughes. Builders of the world, unite!

The business owner of Tin Horn Flats in Burbank gets it: “This has never been about safety or the public. It's never been about that. This whole thing is about fear and control.”
I've been to this establishment (after their utilities were cut-off) and every customer and staff there were perfectly capable of making their own decisions about eating and drinking or working there.

Before WWI, you could travel wherever whenever. Passports were a "temporary" war measure.
The sad thing is by committing fraud - and let's be 100% clear, MobileCoin's advertising is already fraud - they're putting Signal itself at risk.
It'll be intersting to find out just how tightly linked MobileCoin is legally to Signal itself.
lololol They're actually rolling out Intel SGX coin.
"MobileCoin is a payment network with no central authority."
That is a lie. Intel is a central authority if you rely on SGX.
Be careful where you store your keys. Apparently in the US you are now guilty until proven innocent and/or have no right to privacy. In particular the FBI can raid and confiscate any safe deposit boxes they want.
