Cyberpandemic Seems to Follow COVID-19
The following is a direct excerpt from Marty’s Bent issue 1088: “Watch out for the cyber pandemic” Sign up for the newsletter here.
Are you tired and / or down enough from the COVID lockdowns and the vitriol and confusion that came with them? Ready to go back to some semblance of normalcy? Well you might not have that luxury because it looks like we may be entering another pandemic. A cyber pandemic that was choreographed by the World Economic Forum and its lackeys.
As most of you are probably aware, Facebook, Instagram, and WhatsApp have experienced global disruption today that has made the services completely inaccessible. So inaccessible that Facebook employees couldn’t even enter the company headquarters because their access badges were not working.
These disruptions can be added to a list of disruptions that started with the oft-reported ransomeware attacks targeting critical infrastructure earlier this year. Who knows what the autopsy of today’s events will surface, but your crazy Uncle Marty’e antennae are raised high in the air as it seems the cyber pandemic conveniently predicted and played war by them. Parasites at the World Economic Forum earlier this summer appear to be coming to fruition.
Be on the lookout for this growing narrative moving forward. It will be used as yet another reason why citizens around the world must relinquish more freedoms and hand them over to a kleptocratic elite who have “our best interests at heart”. It might sound conspiratorial at the moment, but I won’t be in the least surprised when the ghouls controlling the governments and banks of the world start to loudly beat that drum.
When they do, make sure to push back as hard as possible on their attempts to tighten their grip on your life a little more. Start diversifying your tech stack away from the massive tech giants that will be “targeted” throughout the cyber pandemic and into more robust and distributed applications. Here is a good list from our friend LaserHodl.
It’s not directly related to the cyber pandemic, but it’s something you should be aware of. Just days ago, Coinbase let the world know that 6,000 of its users were swapped with a SIM card and their accounts were emptied earlier this year in a sophisticated phishing attack. This is another reminder that you must eliminate the risks of storing your bitcoin with a third-party custodian by taking full control of your private keys and keeping them offline in a cold store. Cold storage requires extreme ownership, but it’s something every person who owns bitcoin should strive for. In fact, you really don’t own bitcoin until you’ve taken possession of your UTXOs. You only have a claim on bitcoin until you control your own keys.
It’s a scary world out there, the monsters. Prepare accordingly.
“We must sterilize the Internet against the looming specter of the cyber pandemic. It’s time to connect your ID to your IP address.”
… soon in a dystopia near you.
