Cryptocurrencies

To reduce illicit trade, make licit goods available and accessible

Criminal groups have been exploiting the pandemic to enrich themselves through illicit trade and undermine global security.

In August, the US Justice Department knocked down three $2 million worth cryptocurrency campaigns involving the Islamic State. The terrorists were selling fake masks and protective equipment for hospitals online claiming that it was FDA approved and used the profit to fund terrorist attacks.

Illicit trade across the board is a devil in disguise that lures us with cheap prices at the expense of our safety, security, and wellbeing. In order to fight it, we need to guarantee access to and availability of licit goods, especially drugs.

Weak law enforcement and corruption among customs officials are often seen as the main reason why illicit trade flourishes. Both do help facilitate illicit trade but hardly explain its persistence. According to a research conducted by Oxford Economics in 2018, only 11% of illicit trade is seized on average across Europe. Tracking and tracing smugglers is an uphill battle not least because a lot of illicit trade is carried out through official retail channels too.

Yet curbing supply alone won’t help: reducing consumer demand for illicit products is key. That would include raising awareness among consumers about illicit trade and making sure that licit goods are available and accessible. The price does play a role in consumer decision of whether to buy illicit goods or not, but as the said research by Oxford Economics showed it is not the only reason.

At the beginning of the pandemic – which hardly any country was prepared for – many Europeans countries ran out of masks and protective equipment as demand had been spiking. Combined with export bans this has naturally created favourable conditions for illicit trade. For example, OECD data suggests that since March 2020, at least 100 000 new domain names containing coronavirus related words (e.g., Covid, corona or virus) were registered on the darknet to sell medical items.

Lockdowns, trade restrictions and generally global unpreparedness for the pandemic are some of the reasons why illicit trade has scaled up, and tackling these unintended consequences will be a major challenge for the years ahead.

We should start by strengthening IP rights and cutting the red tape to protect brands on a local level so their products are accessible and available to the public. COVID-19 is unfortunately not the only public health issue we have faced, and we have to keep in mind that every flawed policy of peaceful times provides criminals with an opportunity to strike harder in a crisis.

Since the beginning of the pandemic, there has been a 20% increase in enquiries for brand protection, most of which came from the pharmaceutical sector. Multiple European policymakers have made calls against intellectual property rights, while in fact in order to protect ourselves from fake PPE and drugs from China and alike, we have to safeguard IP rights at home.

A failure to mutually commit to regulatory harmonisation between the US FDA and Europe’s EMA is also one of the reasons why illicit trade has been booming. This would allow regulators on both ends to compete for better market approval procedures thereby gradually decreasing the bureaucratic costs for innovators.

We still don’t know how to cure 95 per cent of diseases, and it is crucial that as soon as a new drug is developed it becomes available on both sides of the Atlantic. To make it accessible though, the EU will have to allow consumers to access legal online pharmacies across the bloc.

Illicit trade of medicines puts the lives of millions of consumers in the EU and globally at risk. Reinforcing criminal responsibility for outlawed trade practices is essential but not enough. Curbing demand for illicit products by ensuring the licit ones are available and accessible should be the way forward.

Libra : Facebook va revoir sa copie sur sa monnaie virtuelle

Pour ne pas froisser les États et les banques, Facebook va changer la stratégie du Libra et proposer une solution de paiement global à l’image de PayPal. Le réseau social ne compte pas pour autant abandonner les principes fondamentaux de sa cryptomonnaie.

Lors de la présentation de sa cryptomonnaie Libra en juin dernier, tout s’annonçait pourtant bien pour Facebook. Gérée par une fondation suisse et épaulée par de grands noms de la finance, tels PayPal, Visa et Mastercard, le développement de la monnaie a très rapidement été freiné par des tirs de barrage provenant des États. La France, en premier lieu, considère illégale la création d’une telle monnaie par une société privée. La crainte de l’utilisation de la devise universelle pour réaliser du blanchiment d’argent a aussi pesé beaucoup sur la remise en question du Libra. Au final, les partenaires qui pesaient le plus lourd ont quitté le projet.

Le côté réglementaire a donc eu raison des premières intentions de la cryptomonnaie de Facebook. Pour le coup, le réseau social est actuellement en train de revoir sa copie. Selon les sources du site The Conversation, Facebook et les partenaires qui n’ont pas quitté le navire, comptent refonder totalement le projet.

Pour adoucir le courroux des États, plutôt que de créer une monnaie indépendante, la firme devrait plutôt proposer des déclinaisons numériques des devises, comme l’Euro, ou le dollar. Au final, pour se conformer à la législation, Libra pourrait tout simplement être assimilé à une plateforme de paiement de type PayPal.

Mais attention, Facebook ne compte pas pour autant mettre au rebut les principes de base du Libra. Il se donne juste du temps pour imaginer comment introduire cette cryptomonnaie. C’est pourquoi, la sortie de l’application Calibra, le portefeuille numérique du Libra, est décalée en octobre. De même, Facebook va restreindre cette application aux seuls États ayant émis des cryptomonnaies.

Pourquoi Libra est critiquée avant même son lancement ?

Comme prévu, Facebook a officiellement lancé sa monnaie virtuelle qui pourra être utilisée via Messenger et WhatsApp. Mais déjà, des voix s’élèvent contre cette cryptomonnaie accusée de faire le jeu du blanchiment d’argent ou de concurrencer les monnaies d’État.

Visa, Mastercard, Paypal, Vodafone, Free ou encore Uber et Lyft… Des dizaines de géants de la high-tech et du système bancaire, mais aussi des ONG, épaulent Facebook pour le lancement de Libra, une cryptomonnaie destinée aux utilisateurs de Facebook et de WhatsApp, soit plus de deux milliards d’internautes !

L’idée est simple : bénéficier d’un porte-monnaie virtuel pour acheter et vendre des biens, via la messagerie instantanée, sans passer par une banque. Le tout avec une devise équilibrée dont la valeur est indexée sur plusieurs monnaies en vigueur pour éviter toute spéculation. Date de lancement ? Début 2020.

La France et les États-Unis y sont opposés

Le projet est très ambitieux mais il s’attire déjà les foudres des administrations. En France, le ministre de l’Économie, Bruno Le Maire, a rappelé qu’une entreprise privée ne pouvait pas créer une monnaie, concurrente des devises d’État. Du côté des États-Unis, où Facebook est sous le coup d’une enquête judiciaire pour la collecte et l’exploitation des données personnelles de ses membres, une parlementaire, qui dirige la Commission des Services financiers, exige que Facebook se présente devant le Congrès pour répondre aux inquiétudes et aux questions des représentants.

D’autres craignent que ce ne soit le moyen idéal pour blanchir de l’argent. Réponse de David Marcus, qui dirige cette nouvelle entité, au micro de France Info : « Si un réseau tel que celui-ci émerge avec beaucoup plus de transactions numériques, beaucoup plus de traçabilité, je pense qu’on va grandement améliorer l’efficacité des programmes anti-blanchiment et notamment à travers les porte-monnaie numériques qui seront régulés sur ce nouveau réseau. »

Au consommateur de décider si c’est un bon système ou pas?

Du côté des consommateurs, Consumer Choice Center, équivalent de Que-Choisir à travers le monde, regrette que les législateurs réclament la suspension du projet : « Contrôler la réglementation sur Internet et les sociétés financières est important, mais la mentalité de “légiférer d’abord, d’innover plus tard”, qui est apparue en réponse à Libra, devrait mettre tous les internautes en pause. Si chaque nouvelle innovation Internet est désormais soumise à l’approbation du Congrès, ce serait un dangereux précédent pour l’avenir du choix du consommateur en ligne », a déclaré Yaël Ossowski, dirigeant de cette association de défense du consommateur. Les consommateurs ont le droit de choisir s’ils souhaitent utiliser des crypto-monnaies ou des réseaux sociaux, et sont conscients des risques et des avantages considérables qui en découlent. Les utilisateurs recherchent une alternative et s’intéressent aux nouveaux outils numériques en ligne. C’est pourquoi, il y a un tel intérêt. »

La cryptomonnaie de Facebook arrive le 18 juin

Une dirigeante de Facebook a confirmé l’arrivée prochaine de la monnaie virtuelle de Facebook. Elle sera indexée sur plusieurs monnaies pour éviter les fluctuations et parmi les différents objectifs du réseau social, il y a l’idée de mettre en place un authentique réseau de distribution semblable à celui des distributeurs de billets actuels. 

Différentes sources s’accordent sur la date de lancement officielle de la nouvelle cryptomonnaie de Facebook, qui porte le nom de code Libra, et ce serait pour le 18 juin. L’information a notamment été confirmée par Laura McCracken, à la tête des services financiers et des partenariats pour les paiements de Facebook pour l’Europe du Nord, dans une interview accordée au journal allemand WirtschaftsWoche.

Pensant l’information déjà publique, Laura McCracken a indiqué que Facebook publiera à cette date un livre blanc détaillant le fonctionnement de la cryptomonnaie, et a confirmé qu’elle serait liée à plusieurs devises différentes, plutôt que le dollar seul, afin d’éviter les fluctuations.

Des transferts d’argent sans frais

La cryptomonnaie est prévue pour passer outre les frontières géopolitiques et pourra être transférée sans frais via ses applications Messenger et WhatsApp partout dans le monde. La firme compte notamment en faire la promotion dans les pays en voie de développement, où elle pourrait constituer une alternative stable aux monnaies locales volatiles.

Selon The Information, la firme compte aussi encourager son utilisation dans le monde physique, en installant notamment des machines similaires aux distributeurs de billets, qui permettront d’échanger des devises contre des jetons de sa cryptomonnaie. Facebook compte également proposer des bonus à l’inscription, en partenariat avec des marchands qui accepteront cette nouvelle monnaie.

Taiwan’s quest to become a “blockchain island”

It has been over ten years since the world first heard of Bitcoin, but blockchain’s applications are still in their infancy. One legislator in Taiwan wants to change that. Nicknamed “Crypto Congressman” by Vitalik Buterin, Jason Hsu worked as a tech entrepreneur before getting involved in politics in 2016. Today, he’s on a mission to turn Taiwan into the world’s next blockchain island and crypto nation. 

Hsu believes that one of the main challenges for global policy making is bridging the gap between society and technology. He’s bringing his open-minded perspective to Taiwan’s parliament in an effort to promote a more tech-driven future for the country. A future in which blockchain plays a key role. 

Taiwan’s tech-forward governance

 “In September 2017 when China banned ICOs, I realized that Taiwan could capitalize on this opportunity,” explained Hsu in an interview. That’s when his quest to introduce blockchain-friendly legislation in the country began.

What followed was the launch of a fintech sandbox in Taiwan. The idea was two-fold: to attract more foreign investment and to encourage more homegrown tech startups in the financial sector. Favorable regulations coupled with a big pool of local engineering talent are hoped to put Taiwan on the map of world-class fintech hubs. 

But Hsu’s aspiration reaches far beyond the sandbox. He envisions applying blockchain to various aspects of governance: from the Department of Health, through Education, to Justice. The Crypto Congressman is currently involved in 25 different projects that aim to increase efficiency and improve people’s lives with blockchain. He also promised to develop an entire blockchain district in Taipei with a special community coin that would be issued to entrepreneurs. 

What can blockchain do for the people? 

Blockchain has gotten a lot of bad reputation in the last few years. When the Bitcoin bubble burst, skeptics were quick to proclaim blockchain a fad. Others, on the other hand, pointed out that the internet started with a speculative bubble, too. It was only after the dot-com crisis that the World Wide Web reached its maturity. Is blockchain’s real potential still largely unexplored? 

According to Hsu and other visionary legislators, the answer is yes. They see the crypto speculation as a distraction from far greater tasks ahead: improving public services and increasing trust in governments. 

The most important thing you need to know about blockchain is that it consists of a chain of immutable blocks, or pieces of information if you will. Every single transaction is recorded and the records stay in the system forever. You can’t delete, change or hide the data. 

For governments, this could be a real deal-breaker. All the mundane transactions between the citizens and the government bodies would be revolutionized. Birth and death certificates, academic degrees, deeds, proof of identity and any other paperwork could all exist in the decentralized system. This would prevent fraud and make safe online transactions a lot easier, including e-voting or online property exchange. 

The distributed ledger system can also be used to hold governments accountable and fight corruption. Blockchain could provide a permanent record of all public funds and spendings. In a utopian scenario, each citizen would be able to track where every penny of their taxes goes. 

Blockchain adoption worldwide

Taiwan is not the only country to experiment with blockchain. The small nation of the Marshall Islands is set to become the world’s first state to adopt a digital legal tender. Sovereign, or SOV, will supplement the US dollar, which is currently the official currency of the Marshall Islands. Following the launch of the national cryptocurrency, the country will transition to a new model of governance, based on blockchain. 

Another country incorporating blockchain for governance is Estonia. The Baltic state uses Ethereum to manage its e-residency program. Under the first-of-its-kind scheme, anyone can apply online to become an e-citizen in Estonia and legally start a business there. With cutting-edge initiatives like this one, it’s no surprise that the Estonian government was quick to embrace blockchain. However, the plans to roll out a national cryptocurrency, Estcoin, were paused indefinitely. 

And finally, there is a contestant for the “blockchain island” title eyed by Taiwan. Malta is known as one of the most blockchain-friendly countries in the world, thanks to a very favorable regulatory framework passed in 2018. The island country already managed to attract many large cryptocurrency exchanges: OKEx and Binance, for example, have established their headquarters there. 

Technology is the only way forward

More and more governments around the world are realizing what Jason Hsu already knows: that “blockchain is here to stay.” Implementation of blockchain-powered technologies is no longer an “if” but a “when”. In a fast-paced digital environment, legislators have a choice to move forward with the tech developments or become obsolete. The entrepreneurial spirit of “moving fast and breaking stuff” that Hsu brings to Taiwanese parliament might be just what contemporary policymakers need.

Attempts To Block Facebook’s Libra Cryptocurrency May Backfire

Consumer group: Congressional attempt to block Facebook‘s Libra cryptocurrency harms consumer choice and will backfire

Washington, D.C. – Days after Facebook announced its new Libra cryptocurrency project, federal lawmakers issued stark warnings to the social media platform, and have now requested the project be put on ice.

The lawmakers issuing the warnings were Rep. Maxime Waters, chair of the House Financial Services Committee, as well as ranking member Rep. Patrick McHenry. Sens. Mark Warner and Sherrod Brown both stated independently that Congress “cannot allow” such a project.

In response, Consumer Choice Center Deputy Director Yael Ossowski says the lawmakers’ threats are harmful to consumer choice, and will ultimately backfire.

“Overseeing regulation on Internet and financial firms is important, but the ‘regulate first, innovate later’ mentality that came in response to Libra should give every Internet user pause. If every new Internet innovation is now subject to kneejerk congressional approval, that sets a dangerous precedent for the future of consumer choice online,” said Ossowski.

“Consumers have the right to choose if they want to use cryptocurrencies or social networks, and are aware of the great risks and benefits that go along with that. People want an alternative and they’re interested in new digital tools online. That’s why there is so much interest.

“Allowing political figures to freeze future innovations and projects because of temporary partisan politics will keep millions of consumers from being able to enjoy regular goods and services they enjoy online, not to mention being able to connect with thousands of their friends and family online.

“And it won’t stop here. If these threats continue, Bitcoin and dozens of other cryptocurrencies, as well as other social media platforms that millions of users have adopted, will also face well-intended but flawed regulation.

“We must have smart regulation that encourages competition, protects privacy, and ensures consumer choice. Prior restraint of innovation would be the opposite of that,” said Ossowski.

Consumer body challenges US lawmakers over Facebook crypto

A consumer advocacy group has challenged US lawmakers over their threats on Facebook’s new crypto-currency, Libra.

This, after Facebook was summoned to appear before the US Senate Banking Committee over its plans to launch a crypto-currency next year.

On Tuesday, the social media doyen shared plans for Calibra, a newly formed Facebook subsidiary, whose goal is to provide financial services that will let people access and participate in the Libra network.

Just hours after Facebook announced its new Libra crypto-currency project, US federal lawmakers issued warnings to the social media platform, requesting the project be put on ice until lawmakers have had a chance to review it.

In response, consumer advocacy group Consumer Choice Centre’s deputy director Yaël Ossowski says the lawmakers’ threats are harmful to consumer choice, and will ultimately backfire.

“Overseeing regulation on Internet and financial firms is important, but the ‘regulate first, innovate later’ mentality that came in response to Libra should give every Internet user pause. If every new Internet innovation is now subject to kneejerk congressional approval, that sets a dangerous precedent for the future of consumer choice online,” says Ossowski.

Political opposition to Facebook’s Libra harms consumer choice and will backfire, warns consumer body

Just hours after Facebook announced its new Libra cryptocurrency project, European politicians issued stark warnings calling for tighter regulation of the platform. Some of the most vocal opponents are French Finance Minister Bruno Le Maire and Markus Ferber, a German member of the European Parliament.

In response, Fred Roeder, Managing Director at the Consumer Choice Center, said that “these political threats were harmful to consumer choice, and would ultimately backfire”.

“Overseeing regulation on Internet and financial firms is important, but the ’regulate first, innovate later’ mentality that came in response to Libra should give every Internet user a reason to be concerned. If every new Internet innovation now needs to be approved by lawmakers, that sets a dangerous precedent for the future of consumer choice online,” said Roeder.

Roeder believes that consumers have the right to choose if they want to use cryptocurrencies, or social networks and are aware of the great risks and benefits that go along with that. People want alternatives, especially with new digital tools, which is why there is so much interest from consumers.

“Allowing political figures to freeze future innovations and projects because of temporary partisan politics will keep European consumers from being able to enjoy the goods and services they enjoy online, not to mention being able to connect with thousands of their friends and family online,” he says.

“And it won’t stop here,” he warns. “If these threats continue, Bitcoin and dozens of other cryptocurrencies, as well as other social media platforms that millions of users have adopted, will also face well-intended but flawed regulation.We must have smart regulation that encourages competition, protects privacy, and ensures consumer choice.

Federal regulators should trust progress, avoid blockchain red tape

THE HILL: The U.S. must embrace new technologies and marketplace innovation but also acknowledge that the price of progress includes occasional wrongdoing. The solution for said wrongdoing is not through paternalistic regulation and government intervention, but is best fixed through innovative responses that directly address the problems at hand.

Cryptocurrency Regulations Should Not Stifle the Innovative Potential of Blockchain Technology

By Nur Baysal | 12. February 2018 Recently, the prices of cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin and Ethereum made new headlines: After reaching a staggering all-time-high of $19,783 in December, the price of Bitcoin lost more than half of its value in January and February, dragging the price of other cryptos down alongside it. During this time, a plethora […]
