We kidnapped the rich kid from the toy review videos, and it went sideways.

We weren’t monsters. We weren’t planning on hurting the kid. We weren’t even going to ask for all that much. A hundred k. Split up, that would be more than a year’s salary for both Lenny and me.
Meanwhile, the kid was pulling in 20 mil a year, or so we had heard. So that would be like somebody asking two hundred dollars as a ransom for my kid, proportionally speaking. Not a large sum at all… nothing, really, when we’re talking about the kid’s life. Which, again, we weren’t really, because we never meant to harm him really.
But now… well, Lenny’s funeral is going to cost a lot more than two hundred dollars, but it’s only right that I help pay for it. Not that it’s going to be much of a funeral, without a body. But what was I supposed to do? Run around scooping up the scattered bits of him as I stuffed them into my bag? With those… things swarming all around? No, I did what anybody would do. I got the hell out of there and told a thousand lies about what had happened.
Now I’m going to tell you the truth.
*
We were at the bar on a Friday night, outside having a smoke, when we first started talking about it.
“Heard this story on the radio,” said Lenny. “About some damn YouTube kid who plays with toys or some shit. This little fucker makes twenty million fucking dollars a year just sitting around playing with toys or whatever on camera. Can you imagine that?”
“Oh yeah,” I said. “I’ve heard about that. I’ve seen the videos, too. Sam loves them. Pretty mindless, if you ask me.”
“That’s what I’m saying,” said Lenny, taking a drag. “Why does this kid get to make twenty mil just pretty much pulling his pud all day while we’re out here working our asses off every day just to put food on the table? There’s kids his age out in India or wherever crammed into sweatshops that could collapse at any moment making pennies a day.”
“That’s just the way of the world, my man,” I said. “Some guys get all the luck, some guys get all the shit. And to those guys in India, we’re the lucky millionaires.”
“Yeah, well I don’t know about you, but I’m sick of getting shit on. And luck’s for suckers. Damn fools buy lottery tickets. It’s the real winners who reach out and take their just deserts.”
I stifled a laugh. Lenny was a good guy, but when he got a little tipsy, he always got too big for his britches. “You thinking of starting your own toy review channel, Lenny?”
“No, man, that’s not what I’m saying. I’m saying what if… well, what if we broke in there and robbed him?”
Now I couldn’t hold it back. I laughed. “Robbed him? You want to go into his house and steal his Paw Patrol toys? Or what?”
“No you asshole… his money. He’s been at it for years. He’s got to have a hundred mil by now.”
I shook my head in amusement. “Where do you think he keeps it all? Under his bed? Come on, man. Everything’s digital now, especially with these YouTube guys. I’d be surprised if that kid’s ever seen a real dollar bill.”
Lenny frowned, throwing his cigarette butt to the ground. “I was just… kidding around, you know? You didn’t think I was serious, did you?” He turned around to go back into the bar, and I tried my best to hold in a full-on belly laugh, thinking about how absurd his plan had been – and I knew that it wasn’t a joke at all, he was really serious about it. And that’s when it hit me.
“Lenny… wait.
He turned to look at me, still frowning. “I told you I was just kidding around.”
“What if there is something valuable in that house?”
*
Two weeks later we had the kid’s house all mapped out, inside and out. I mean, all you had to do was watch the videos. We knew where the kid ate breakfast, and where he slept. We knew where his parents slept, and where his little sisters slept too. We knew what his yard looked like, and where the back door was. We drew it all out, and worked on the plan.
“100% chance they got a security system,” said Lenny.
“So we get in while the system’s disarmed, and they’re distracted.”
“We wait til they go out the front to shoot a video there….”
“…and we go in the back,” I finished.
We spent the next week working out the details, gathering up what we needed. We told our families that we were going on a fishing trip at a lake near the mountains. We had six days to make it work. We would stake the house out, and wait for our moment. Then: in through the back door and down to the basement, to hide until everyone was asleep.
Lenny’s cousin had access to some pretty potent tranquilizers, which we’d shoot the kid up with when he started to wake up. Then we’d head right out the front door with him. This would trigger the alarm, so we had to be fast as hell, but we also had to park far enough away so that we’d be out of sight of any surveillance cameras around the house.
We’d call the parents from a burner phone, and arrange for a Bitcoin transfer. Then we’d drop the kid off at a park or something and let them know where he was, once the transfer went through.
It was a gamble, but we were confident. That family wouldn’t miss the $100k, and the kid would be conked out through it all. It would suck for them, but they’d get over it. And nobody was going to get hurt.
*
It took four days of staking the place out for our moment to come.
On the second day, they went out front to shoot a video, but when we tried the back door, it was locked.
Fuck,” whispered Lenny.
We crept back across the yard and over the fence to our positions. We weren’t master burglars or anything. We had to wait until that door was unlocked and they were distracted enough for us to enter.
On the fourth day, they went out back, filming the kid bouncing on a trampoline for a while. Then they went back inside.
“I don’t think they locked the door,” I said. “They were still recording on the way in.”
“Yeah, but how are we gonna get in with them right there?”
A minute later, I nudged Lenny and pointed up to a second floor window… the kid’s bedroom. We could see the dad in there, with his back to the window.
“I think this is our best shot, man,” I said. “It’s now or never.”
“Shit,” said Lenny, looking a little pale. I knew how he felt. “Are they all up there?”
“I don’t know” I said, “but if we’re going to do this, we do it now. It’s not too late to back out though.”
Lenny started muttering to himself. That worried me. But then he slapped himself in the face and said, “Let’s do this.”
We hopped the fence and slithered through the yard, like man-sized snakes, dressed all in black, from our boots to our ski masks. Then we were at the door. I took a deep breath and tried it. It slid open.
We entered, my heart banging away like crazy, and made a bee line for the basement. When we were almost there, I looked over and saw a little kid on the living room floor, playing with blocks. She was young, two years old at most. She looked up at me. I put my finger to my exposed lips, shushing her. Then I opened the basement door, and Lenny and I walked down the steps, carefully, as though walking on glass.
When we got to the basement floor, Lenny tore his mask off. His face was drenched in sweat. “Shit!” he said. “That little girl saw us. We’re fucked.”
I peeled my mask of as well. “Calm down,” I said, as much to Lenny as to myself. I looked around. “There,” I said. “Bring that ladder over to that window.” I pointed to one of the tiny windows that was letting some light in. “The second we hear any kind of commotion, like they’re on to us, we smash that window and make a break for it. But I think we’re okay. I don’t think she’s old enough to communicate what she saw, or even know it was wrong.”
“Yeah,” said Lenny, “good thinking.” But I could tell that neither of us was convinced.
After about an hour of pacing around silently, thinking the worst thoughts, we started to calm down a little bit. “I think we’re okay,” I said.
“Look at all these fucking toys down here,” said Lenny.
The walls were lined with shelves and shelves of toys, many of them still in their packaging. “It’s still not too late,” I said. “Some of these are worth a hundred bucks a pop. We could load up what we can, and get the hell out of here. Probably make off with a grand worth of shit between us.”
Lenny groaned. “That won’t even cover expenses.”
He was right, but the longer I spent in that basement, the more I started to feel how wrong what we were about to do was. Sure, it was true that the money was trivial to them, and that we had planned it out so that nobody would be hurt. But I’ll be damned if it didn’t feel just straight up wrong, while we paced the basement of someone else’s house, waiting for the kid to go to sleep.
“Too late for second guessing,” said Lenny. “We’re here. We’re each out a thousand if this doesn’t go through. Do you have some kind of inheritance you haven’t told me about? Because if you don’t, then I know you’re just as fucked as me if you go pissing a grand down the toilet.”
He was right about that, too. We had our household budget cut to the bone already, what with Sam’s treatments sucking away whatever money we could have spared before… and then some.
You’re doing this for a good reason, I told myself. For your boy. It’s a wrong thing to do, but for the right reason. That will have to be good enough.
*
We waited until midnight, and then made our way, slowly, up the basement steps. I hoped that we were being quiet, but it was hard to tell. My senses seemed distorted. Each of my own breaths seemed to sound like a hurricane whipping through the house.
Lenny opened the basement door, and I saw the front entrance to the house there across the room. I wanted to run to it… run out of it, into the night. Then I thought of Sam, lying in his bed, wheezing, and I shook the thought away. It was too late to go back. We were in it.
We crept up the main stairwell. The kid’s room was the second door on the right. When we got to the top, Lenny stopped and got down on the floor, looking for signs of light peeking out from under the doors. There were none.
Lenny stood up and grasped the knob to the kid’s room. He swung it slowly open, and stopped when it made a slight creak. I held my breath, but nothing happened. Lenny opened the door the rest of the way and we stepped in.
The kid was there in his bed. I could see the covers moving up and down as he breathed heavily in sleep, lit up, just barely, by the moonlight that filtered through the curtains of his window.
It was Lenny’s job to tape the gag in his mouth. It was my job to inject him with the tranquilizer when he woke up. Lenny shot me a look and I nodded slowly, not even meaning to. It was like I was no longer in control of things. It was up to The Plan now. The part of me that could still think only hoped that The Plan was a good one.
Lenny worked the rag into the kid’s mouth, and his eyes started to flutter open. I jabbed the needle into his neck and pushed the plunger down. Then the kid’s eyes closed again.
The Plan said that I was to carry the kid down the stairs and to the front door. Then I’d hand him off to Lenny, who would be fresh with strength, and open the door. Then we’d run like hell.
I gave Lenny the bag and lifted the limp kid over my shoulder. I was so full of adrenalin that it felt like he was completely weightless. For the first time that day, I felt like The Plan would work. We were going to make it. What that meant was up to God to decide. All I could to do was follow The Plan and pray we weren’t judged too harshly.
I left the room and walked back down the hall, the kid draped over my shoulder, with Lenny a step behind me. I stepped carefully down the stairs and through the living room, and then we were face-to-face with the front door. I turned to Lenny and saw him nod. Just as I was handing the kid off, I heard it:
“Peek-a-boo!”
Lenny let go of the kid, who slumped down to the floor with a soft thud.
“Be careful!” I whispered. “You’re going to hurt him!”
“What the fuck was that?” asked Lenny, too loud, looking around. “Who said that?!”
“It was probably the sister,” I whispered. “Keep your voice down, pick up the kid, and let’s get the hell out of here!”
“I see you!” said the tiny, high-pitched voice from the darkness.
“Who’s there?” said Lenny, now way too loud.
“Lenny,” I hissed, “pick up that fucking kid and let’s go!”
Then Lenny started laughing.
“What’s wrong with you?” I demanded, noticing that I was also being too loud.
“Look!” said Lenny, pointing.
At first, all I could see were two red dots in the darkness, blinking in and out. But as my eyes adjusted, I saw it. It was this blue fuzzy thing with a big red nose, like a Muppet or something, sitting a few feet away from us on the floor. That was the thing that was talking to us. A goddamn toy.
I laughed too. “Alright, come on, let’s get out of here, man.”
“We all see you!” said the blue fuzzy toy.
At once, I heard a cacophony of strange sounds. It was like there was a sudden rainstorm inside that room, and then a volley of scraping noises, coming from all around. Then Lenny was screaming. Before I could get a good look at what was happening, he seemed to fall down, and it was like he was being dragged away.
I looked at the front door. I looked down at the unconscious millionaire kid that we had come there to kidnap. I tried to look into the darkness that Lenny had been dragged away into, but I couldn’t see anything. Then I felt a sharp pain in my leg.
I didn’t know what else to do. I was terrified. Lenny was screaming non-stop. He was definitely going to wake everybody up. Before I left him there, I had to know why. I flicked on the light switch.
What I saw didn’t make sense. Lenny was covered, from head to toe, in… toys. There were Paw Patrol figurines, and PJ Mask figurines, and hundreds of others that I didn’t recognize. They were tearing into him, as he screamed and his blood splashed over everything. I watched in horror as one of his fingers flew through the air, with a Lego man riding on top of it.
I felt another sting in my leg and looked down to see one of the Star War guys stabbing me with a tiny lightsaber.
In a matter of seconds, Lenny’s screams turned to gurgling sounds, and then stopped completely. A moment later, his head was being carried away from the rest of what remained of his body. And not much recognizable remained. Those things had begun to pull out his colon, tearing it apart and yanking it in different directions. They had already stripped most of the skin from his body, leaving a glistening and sickening mess of fat and muscle and bone.
That was all I needed. I swung the front door open and started running, trying to swat the Star Wars guy off of my leg as the security alarm began blaring behind me. I got him off, but immediately felt a pain in the back of my neck. I grabbed at it as I ran, and when I pulled away my hand and looked at it, I saw that there was another Lego guy there, jamming a spear into my palm.
I felt dizzy, but I ran. I ran like my life depended on it. It did. I tossed the Lego guy into the darkness just as I reached our rental car. I got in and gunned it out of there.

I told everybody that Lenny had one too many and fell off the boat and into the lake. I made the call as soon as I was back at the cabin that we’d rented.
They all believed me. And it wasn’t like in the movies, where they dredge the lake to get the body. I was afraid of that. But no. Why go through all that trouble for every drunk that sinks down to the bottom? Makes me wonder how many dead bodies there are, down there, nothing but fish food.
Still, that’s a better way to go than the way that Lenny actually went. I’ll sometimes start to doubt that it actually happened, and then all at once it will hit me… the vision of those toys tearing through his flesh like it was nothing… like it’s all happening again.
We weren’t monsters. We weren’t planning on hurting the kid. We weren’t even going to ask for all that much. And this is what we got.

DIFFERENCE BETWEEN FIAT AND CRYPTO

• Fiat Currency is backed by Governments/Countries itself. What determines the value of a currency is the economic health, demand, growth, political stability to name a few, of the respective country. Before 1930, most fiat currencies were backed by gold and silver.
• Since 1971, U.S. citizens have been able to utilize Federal Reserve Notes as the only form of money that for the first time had no currency with any gold or silver backing. This is where you get the saying that U.S. dollars are backed by the “full faith and credit” of the U.S. Government - quoted in google.com.
• What backs crypto value is purely supply and demand. The demand creation of a crypto is its sole objective. To create demand, the crypto has to have a purpose. And most purpose commonly promoted is utility. The number of ways you can utilize the said crypto. The more utilization factors the more demand there is for it.
• There are other ways to substantiate value of a crypto and that is to back the crypto with a 1 to 1 ratio in assets or in USD. Then the question is, how 3,000 crypto currencies in circulation be monetary eco sustainable? Can anyone imagine walking into McDonald and view a chart of 3,000 different pricing? Which also means the crypto is a payment gateway pegging against USD instead of bearing any true characteristic of a currency.
• A country’s currency is in its own legit form of legal tender, the only currency acceptable under financial sovereigns of a country. People in the world must be made to understand that. Retailers in Thailand cannot put up products price tags in EUROS/USD, it is illegal. It has to be in Thai Baht.
• It is hardly imaginable for everyone in the world to retail with a Crypto-Currencies at a rate of 7 transactions per second. When mining nodes are reduced due to non-performing mining ratio, mining blocks in the Blockchain will significantly be limited too, rendering delays in transactions while usage increases.
• In time to come, as trends of crypto picks up, Thailand can issue BAHT COIN or UK the STERLING COIN, exactly what China wishes to do. Digital RMB, but would such crypto currencies be fully decentralized? We all have our answers. Absurd to even think of producing Thai Baht, Pound Sterling or Chinese Yuan at the cost of electricity. It is currencies in digital forms.
KRATSCOIN is not meant for that purpose. In some opinion, apart from utilization, a crypto can be for safekeeping, an entity for keeping money while allowing easy liquidation, at a click of a mobile button, not to mention sending or transferring without the trouble of going to banks, which was the original purpose of Bitcoin to begin with. Therefore, KRATSCOIN would be better termed as Crypto Commodity, sharing similarities as Metal Commodities.
An individual cannot use gold to make a purchase, neither can one eat gold. It can only be kept or invest in for appreciative value over time. Gold is being exampled for its scarcity which reasons for its higher value over its cousin, silver or bronze. Who or what determines the value of gold? Just like any other crypto, demand by humanity. As in all other commodities, it must also be placed in checks by governments. To put in checks, serial numbers are introduced to protect a country’s commodities outflows or illegal exports.
Humanity made Bitcoin a reality. Acceptance by the majority members of the public made Bitcoin to what is it today with the trust they entrusted it with, or is the majority public hopping on the band wagon to make a few quick extra bucks? Whatever the reasons are, the characteristics of Crypto Currencies are only matched by the behavior of Commodities.
SERIALIZED COINS - WHAT IT MEANS FOR THE PUBLIC: Every currency has its own remarkable name, design and colors. Dollars, Euros, Pound, Tugrik, Peso, Rupee, Rupiah, Dina, Ringgit, Baht and the list carries on. One thing every currency have in common - Serial Numbers.
In any crime, investigators will firstly establish motives and mode of operation, both of which are very likely related to money. So following the money trial is a natural thing to do for investigators/authorities and it has become a common practice. Crimes require funding ie robbers need money to buy guns to carry out its robbing activities. Cutting off financing will reduce criminal activities. That’s the approach governments of the WORLD have adopted for crime fighting.
Perhaps people do not realize this while most do not feel the pinch. Humanity tends to take life for granted until apocalypse happens. Take a minute to visualize the tallest tower in your homeland collapse into a pile of dust with thousands of casualties effecting everything else that comes to mind. Imagine a family member, just 1 is enough, is among those casualties.
• Imagine if monetary system is not in place and drug dealers, among many, roam the earth freely distributing what can be death threatening substance to your kids. What if you are mugged of your inheritance [items left to you by your father] that is beyond retrieval? As for crypto enthusiast, what if your wallet gets hacked as even the mighty Pentagon gets hacked. All the above can go away if the crypto system leaves a trail for hound dogs to sniff out. Money Trail or Serial Codes Trail to be exact.
• Citizens rely on governments and their countries to do what is best for them to lead their daily lives, flourish, advance, improve and strive but at the same time, citizens want to take away the single most important thing deemed crucial in the hierarchy of humanity from governments with additional boastful remarks such as “I transferred $400 million from one corner of the earth to another corner in a single transaction and no governments can do anything about it”.
• In-short, to boast unregulated financial movement is to arrogantly promote crime without realizing it while challenging the world’s monetary authority. Oldest advice in the book teaches us never to pick a fight we can’t win.
• Serial Coded Coins does not take away the financial movement freedom nor does it take away your privacy. It merely provides Authorities the necessary means needed for crime prevention and fighting. It only re-inforce security and safety. SERIALIZED COINS - WHAT IT MEANS FOR GOVERNMENTS: • Governments are relentlessly trying to find new ways to keep track of crypto transactions. Crypto Currency Exchanges, just like all other Financial Institutions and Banks, are required to practice the most stringent Know Your Customer (widely known as KYC) process. The KYC is designed to provide governing agencies and authorities with information pertaining to crypto ownerships.
• But no governments can have information on Peer-to-Peer (also known as P2P) transactions unless the government in question launch a full scale Federal Investigation on certain suspected individuals seeking Wallet Developers to unveil the ownership of certain wallet addresses. Do not forget, National and Global Security trumps Privacy Act. Refusal to co-operate under the pretext of Global or National Security will only result in an out-right ban, which is exactly what happened to Blackberry.
• Questions to Governments – What if Wallet Developers or Crypto Exchanges shuts down which can happen for various reasons be it foul-play, sinister or forcefully under threat? What if servers are damaged and ruined? An EMP strike or a simple magnet can make it happen. Information/identities of suspected customers of such addresses shall be lost forever and along with it the Money Trial.
• The most probable way of evading Authorities with crypto assets are developing an e-wallet for own illicit purpose. Since the cost of developing an e-wallet is relatively low in considerable cost to hiding, what can governments do to flush out these ants from the vast networks of tunnels?
• With Serialized Coded Crypto Assets, it doesn’t matter if servers of Exchanges or Wallets are destroyed. The Serial Codes of each token/coin enables governments of every participating country to track both origin and destination by identifying records of each token/coin in wallet address. It can disappear into a cold wallet but emerging some place later yet Authorities can still detail which particular token/coin has at one moment of time been into which wallet, on what day and date.
• If the battle of financial crimes can be resolved with a simple Serialize Coded Crypto Asset, the eradication of corruptions, money laundering, unlawful proceeds and terrorism financing will be made possible. Criminals can no longer exploit the genius creation of Sathoshi – Blockchain and Crypto-Currencies.
• Global Security, Anti-Terrorism Financing and Money Laundering could just be excuses granting government agencies the need to have access to financial information in the Monetary System. Nonetheless, it is in the interest of every nation that capital outflow is controlled. Capital Outflow is most frequent when the economy of a country is deteriorating. In the face of an economy meltdown, monetary flow is most needed and yet citizens tend to transfer monies further away illegally from their own country in an act of selfishness. This would not be tolerated by any country. Serial Coded Coin shall prove this attempt futile.
• In most part of Asian Countries, many crypto-currency mining operations are carried out illegally. The legality sits on thin fine line where Authorities can pin only stealing of electricity as a major concern to the respective country. Since most Power Companies belongs to the Country in one way or another, it is financially damaging to Power Producers and Utility Suppliers. Serial Codes can determine if the KRATSCOIN is mined legally or illegally making it difficult for miners or mining farms to mine crypto while avoiding making electricity payments. Will this deterrent disrupt the chain of KRATSCOIN supply? That’s not how Blockchain Tech works. TAXATIONS - WHAT IT MEANS FOR PUBLIC AND GOVERNMENTS: • Taxation cannot be imposed on “Illegal & Unlawful Proceeds” instead confiscation is enforced in many countries. Origins or proceeds of Serialized Coded Crypto Assets can be easily identified by the Serial Codes in-conjunction with the Blockchain. This exercise can evidently proof the legitimacy of the aforesaid token/coin. By “Illegal & Unlawful Proceeds” also refers to crypto coins obtained via illegal mining operations.
• Taxation on Crypto Assets are calculated on profits deriving from the sale/disposal of the crypto Assets. If we are small crypto believers, the amount of taxation rendered by Inland Revenue will be insignificant. Why risk Freedom of Life over Freedom of Small Monies. If we are big crypto believers, taxation on Serialized Coded Coins can be considered added security to your assets protection.
• By adopting Serialized Crypto Assets, declaration is made easily possible via proof of token/coin origin via the Blockchain. If the Authorities can know where our crypto assets come from, the Authorities will know where it will disappear to. It is taxation cum insurance in one tiny sum. This added security with freedom feature will encourage self-declarations of crypto assets to Authorities and Agencies. PRIVACY & ANONIMITY: • Many may be skeptical of their wealth being tracked and monitored. But in this era of technological advance society, everything we touches has our signature. Banks, iPhones, Samsung Mobiles, Google, Facebook, Whatsapp, WeChat, LINE, Viber, Facebook, Properties, Utilities. Almost everything. It is to this fact that there is a need for Privacy Protection Act.
• As explained before, Crypto Currency Exchange KYC procedures is designed to expose the identity of Crypto Assets ownership. The Blockchain is supposed to serve as a transparent information platform. The question of privacy over Serialized Coded Coins does not exist, it does not make Serialized Coded Coins ownership any less private.
• Ownership of wallet addresses shall always remain anonymous while the only way Authorities can get to it is through Wallet Developers by virtue of Global/National Security Threats or by a Court Order as per the Privacy Protection Act. SAFETY & SECURITY (CODED CRYPTO VS FIAT + COMMODITIES): • No human mind can memorize the millions of serial numbers printed on fiat currencies. The records of Serialized Coded Coins will forever be in the Blockchain embedded within each transaction from wallet to wallet.
• Serialized Commodities such as gold can be melted down. Diamonds recrafted. Fiat double printed. But not Serialized Coded Crypto Assets.
• Should an accessory system be added into the KRATSCOIN Blockchain, allowing reports on criminal activity be made within the Blockchain, notifying all ledgers of certain stolen Serial Coded Coins, enabling WARNINGS and forbidding next transaction of that particular Serial Coded Coin, wouldn’t this function enhance protection. A theft deterrent function which can never be achieved with physical gold, diamonds or fiat. KRATSCOIN SUMMARY: • Most crypto currencies have not reach a level of security alert for governments. This could be the only reason why a possible ban has not been discussed. China and India has begun efforts to control or ban crypto currencies in their quest to combat capital outflow, writer’s personal opinion. The EU has stopped Libra from implementation. “A company cannot be allowed Authoring Power for issuance of currencies” quoted the governments. KRATSCOIN is fully decentralized with no ownership nor control by any country, company or individual. Once again, the beauty of Bitcoin decentralization concept prevails.
• “There is no such thing as a world currency. However, since World War II, the dominant or reserve currency of the world has been the U.S. dollar” quoted in google.com.
• Most countries have “Foreign Reserves” as backing to a country’s fiat currency. It is a mean of “back up” attempt should all factors above mentioned leading to the value of their currencies collapse. Then what will happen if the Country of the Foreign Reserves collapse?
• Serial Coded KRATSCOIN belongs to no one, no country, no company and therefore theoretically shall not be effected by politics, war or global economy meltdown yet everyone, every country and every government is able to benefit from KRATSCOIN.

11-04 14:33 - 'DIFFERENCE BETWEEN KRATSCOIN AND BITCOIN' (self.Bitcoin) by /u/xia112 removed from /r/Bitcoin within 3-13min

'''
• The indivisible minimum KRATSCOIN unit is 0.00001 instead of 0.00000001 to denominate realistic currency rates in FOREX. Denomination cannot be determined or dictated by the value of a currency. If KRATSCOIN is valued at USD10,000.00 then the smallest unit of KRATSCOIN at 0.00001 = USD0.10 and nothing smaller than USD0.10 in KRATSCOIN.
Example: If USD1.00 = THB30.00 and the smallest denomination of USD is USD0.10, then a USD0.10 which is THB3.00, is unable to buy a piece of candy at THB1.00. Thus the USD must be converted into a smaller currency of THB in order to buy the THB1.00 candy.
• KRATSCOIN is in-line with standard International Foreign Currency Exchange Practice at indivisible minimum unit 0.00001.
• Each KRATSCOIN is equipped with a 13 digit “SERIAL CODES AND NUMBERS” and there will be a total of 2,100,000,000,000 SERIAL CODES in total.
Example1: 1st KRATSCOIN = AKDJFYRS.00000 Example2: 1st Fraction from 1st KRATSCOIN = AKDJFYRS.00001 Example3: 2nd Fraction from 2nd KRATSCOIN = AKDJFYRS.00002 Example4: Last KRATSCOIN = DLXVZKWR.00000 Example5: 1st Fraction from Last KRATSCOIN = DLXVZKWR.00001 Example6: 2nd Fraction from Last KRATSCOIN = DLXVZKWR.00002
• In Year 2015, Silk Road in DeepWeb utilization of Bitcoin in their transactions amounts to USD1.2billion spanning over 950,000 users. One may argue that Bitcoin is most utilized by the black market, which then maintains its value and worth among other factors. However, the USD1.2bil a year over 950,000 users are far fetch from the Legitimate Users in comparison. Bitcoin transactions runs into USD40.0bil in recent Legitimate Crypto Exchanges. In summary, legitimate transaction of crypto currencies is many times larger use in illegal transactions.
DIFFERENCE BETWEEN FIAT AND CRYPTO:
• Fiat Currency is backed by Governments/Countries itself. What determines the value of a currency is the economic health, demand, growth, political stability to name a few, of the respective country. Before 1930, most fiat currencies were backed by gold and silver.
• Since 1971, U.S. citizens have been able to utilize Federal Reserve Notes as the only form of money that for the first time had no currency with any gold or silver backing. This is where you get the saying that U.S. dollars are backed by the “full faith and credit” of the U.S. Government - quoted in google.com.
• What backs crypto value is purely supply and demand. The demand creation of a crypto is its sole objective. To create demand, the crypto has to have a purpose. And most purpose commonly promoted is utility. The number of ways you can utilize the said crypto. The more utilization factors the more demand there is for it.
• There are other ways to substantiate value of a crypto and that is to back the crypto with a 1 to 1 ratio in assets or in USD. Then the question is, how 3,000 crypto currencies in circulation be monetary eco sustainable? Can anyone imagine walking into McDonald and view a chart of 3,000 different pricing? Which also means the crypto is a payment gateway pegging against USD instead of bearing any true characteristic of a currency.
• A country’s currency is in its own legit form of legal tender, the only currency acceptable under financial sovereigns of a country. People in the world must be made to understand that. Retailers in Thailand cannot put up products price tags in EUROS/USD, it is illegal. It has to be in Thai Baht.
• It is hardly imaginable for everyone in the world to retail with a Crypto-Currencies at a rate of 7 transactions per second. When mining nodes are reduced due to non-performing mining ratio, mining blocks in the Blockchain will significantly be limited too, rendering delays in transactions while usage increases.
• In time to come, as trends of crypto picks up, Thailand can issue BAHT COIN or UK the STERLING COIN, exactly what China wishes to do. Digital RMB, but would such crypto currencies be fully decentralized? We all have our answers. Absurd to even think of producing Thai Baht, Pound Sterling or Chinese Yuan at the cost of electricity. It is currencies in digital forms.
KRATSCOIN is not meant for that purpose. In some opinion, apart from utilization, a crypto can be for safekeeping, an entity for keeping money while allowing easy liquidation, at a click of a mobile button, not to mention sending or transferring without the trouble of going to banks, which was the original purpose of Bitcoin to begin with. Therefore, KRATSCOIN would be better termed as Crypto Commodity, sharing similarities as Metal Commodities.
An individual cannot use gold to make a purchase, neither can one eat gold. It can only be kept or invest in for appreciative value over time. Gold is being exampled for its scarcity which reasons for its higher value over its cousin, silver or bronze. Who or what determines the value of gold? Just like any other crypto, demand by humanity. As in all other commodities, it must also be placed in checks by governments. To put in checks, serial numbers are introduced to protect a country’s commodities outflows or illegal exports.
Humanity made Bitcoin a reality. Acceptance by the majority members of the public made Bitcoin to what is it today with the trust they entrusted it with, or is the majority public hopping on the band wagon to make a few quick extra bucks? Whatever the reasons are, the characteristics of Crypto Currencies are only matched by the behavior of Commodities.
SERIALIZED COINS - WHAT IT MEANS FOR THE PUBLIC: Every currency has its own remarkable name, design and colors. Dollars, Euros, Pound, Tugrik, Peso, Rupee, Rupiah, Dina, Ringgit, Baht and the list carries on. One thing every currency have in common - Serial Numbers.
In any crime, investigators will firstly establish motives and mode of operation, both of which are very likely related to money. So following the money trial is a natural thing to do for investigators/authorities and it has become a common practice. Crimes require funding ie robbers need money to buy guns to carry out its robbing activities. Cutting off financing will reduce criminal activities. That’s the approach governments of the WORLD have adopted for crime fighting.
Perhaps people do not realize this while most do not feel the pinch. Humanity tends to take life for granted until apocalypse happens. Take a minute to visualize the tallest tower in your homeland collapse into a pile of dust with thousands of casualties effecting everything else that comes to mind. Imagine a family member, just 1 is enough, is among those casualties.
• Imagine if monetary system is not in place and drug dealers, among many, roam the earth freely distributing what can be death threatening substance to your kids. What if you are mugged of your inheritance [items left to you by your father] that is beyond retrieval? As for crypto enthusiast, what if your wallet gets hacked as even the mighty Pentagon gets hacked. All the above can go away if the crypto system leaves a trail for hound dogs to sniff out. Money Trail or Serial Codes Trail to be exact.
• Citizens rely on governments and their countries to do what is best for them to lead their daily lives, flourish, advance, improve and strive but at the same time, citizens want to take away the single most important thing deemed crucial in the hierarchy of humanity from governments with additional boastful remarks such as “I transferred $400 million from one corner of the earth to another corner in a single transaction and no governments can do anything about it”.
• In-short, to boast unregulated financial movement is to arrogantly promote crime without realizing it while challenging the world’s monetary authority. Oldest advice in the book teaches us never to pick a fight we can’t win.
• Serial Coded Coins does not take away the financial movement freedom nor does it take away your privacy. It merely provides Authorities the necessary means needed for crime prevention and fighting. It only re-inforce security and safety. SERIALIZED COINS - WHAT IT MEANS FOR GOVERNMENTS: • Governments are relentlessly trying to find new ways to keep track of crypto transactions. Crypto Currency Exchanges, just like all other Financial Institutions and Banks, are required to practice the most stringent Know Your Customer (widely known as KYC) process. The KYC is designed to provide governing agencies and authorities with information pertaining to crypto ownerships.
• But no governments can have information on Peer-to-Peer (also known as P2P) transactions unless the government in question launch a full scale Federal Investigation on certain suspected individuals seeking Wallet Developers to unveil the ownership of certain wallet addresses. Do not forget, National and Global Security trumps Privacy Act. Refusal to co-operate under the pretext of Global or National Security will only result in an out-right ban, which is exactly what happened to Blackberry.
• Questions to Governments – What if Wallet Developers or Crypto Exchanges shuts down which can happen for various reasons be it foul-play, sinister or forcefully under threat? What if servers are damaged and ruined? An EMP strike or a simple magnet can make it happen. Information/identities of suspected customers of such addresses shall be lost forever and along with it the Money Trial.
• The most probable way of evading Authorities with crypto assets are developing an e-wallet for own illicit purpose. Since the cost of developing an e-wallet is relatively low in considerable cost to hiding, what can governments do to flush out these ants from the vast networks of tunnels?
• With Serialized Coded Crypto Assets, it doesn’t matter if servers of Exchanges or Wallets are destroyed. The Serial Codes of each token/coin enables governments of every participating country to track both origin and destination by identifying records of each token/coin in wallet address. It can disappear into a cold wallet but emerging some place later yet Authorities can still detail which particular token/coin has at one moment of time been into which wallet, on what day and date.
• If the battle of financial crimes can be resolved with a simple Serialize Coded Crypto Asset, the eradication of corruptions, money laundering, unlawful proceeds and terrorism financing will be made possible. Criminals can no longer exploit the genius creation of Sathoshi – Blockchain and Crypto-Currencies.
• Global Security, Anti-Terrorism Financing and Money Laundering could just be excuses granting government agencies the need to have access to financial information in the Monetary System. Nonetheless, it is in the interest of every nation that capital outflow is controlled. Capital Outflow is most frequent when the economy of a country is deteriorating. In the face of an economy meltdown, monetary flow is most needed and yet citizens tend to transfer monies further away illegally from their own country in an act of selfishness. This would not be tolerated by any country. Serial Coded Coin shall prove this attempt futile.
• In most part of Asian Countries, many crypto-currency mining operations are carried out illegally. The legality sits on thin fine line where Authorities can pin only stealing of electricity as a major concern to the respective country. Since most Power Companies belongs to the Country in one way or another, it is financially damaging to Power Producers and Utility Suppliers. Serial Codes can determine if the KRATSCOIN is mined legally or illegally making it difficult for miners or mining farms to mine crypto while avoiding making electricity payments. Will this deterrent disrupt the chain of KRATSCOIN supply? That’s not how Blockchain Tech works. TAXATIONS - WHAT IT MEANS FOR PUBLIC AND GOVERNMENTS: • Taxation cannot be imposed on “Illegal & Unlawful Proceeds” instead confiscation is enforced in many countries. Origins or proceeds of Serialized Coded Crypto Assets can be easily identified by the Serial Codes in-conjunction with the Blockchain. This exercise can evidently proof the legitimacy of the aforesaid token/coin. By “Illegal & Unlawful Proceeds” also refers to crypto coins obtained via illegal mining operations.
• Taxation on Crypto Assets are calculated on profits deriving from the sale/disposal of the crypto Assets. If we are small crypto believers, the amount of taxation rendered by Inland Revenue will be insignificant. Why risk Freedom of Life over Freedom of Small Monies. If we are big crypto believers, taxation on Serialized Coded Coins can be considered added security to your assets protection.
• By adopting Serialized Crypto Assets, declaration is made easily possible via proof of token/coin origin via the Blockchain. If the Authorities can know where our crypto assets come from, the Authorities will know where it will disappear to. It is taxation cum insurance in one tiny sum. This added security with freedom feature will encourage self-declarations of crypto assets to Authorities and Agencies. PRIVACY & ANONIMITY: • Many may be skeptical of their wealth being tracked and monitored. But in this era of technological advance society, everything we touches has our signature. Banks, iPhones, Samsung Mobiles, Google, Facebook, Whatsapp, WeChat, LINE, Viber, Facebook, Properties, Utilities. Almost everything. It is to this fact that there is a need for Privacy Protection Act.
• As explained before, Crypto Currency Exchange KYC procedures is designed to expose the identity of Crypto Assets ownership. The Blockchain is supposed to serve as a transparent information platform. The question of privacy over Serialized Coded Coins does not exist, it does not make Serialized Coded Coins ownership any less private.
• Ownership of wallet addresses shall always remain anonymous while the only way Authorities can get to it is through Wallet Developers by virtue of Global/National Security Threats or by a Court Order as per the Privacy Protection Act. SAFETY & SECURITY (CODED CRYPTO VS FIAT + COMMODITIES): • No human mind can memorize the millions of serial numbers printed on fiat currencies. The records of Serialized Coded Coins will forever be in the Blockchain embedded within each transaction from wallet to wallet.
• Serialized Commodities such as gold can be melted down. Diamonds recrafted. Fiat double printed. But not Serialized Coded Crypto Assets.
• Should an accessory system be added into the KRATSCOIN Blockchain, allowing reports on criminal activity be made within the Blockchain, notifying all ledgers of certain stolen Serial Coded Coins, enabling WARNINGS and forbidding next transaction of that particular Serial Coded Coin, wouldn’t this function enhance protection. A theft deterrent function which can never be achieved with physical gold, diamonds or fiat. KRATSCOIN SUMMARY: • Most crypto currencies have not reach a level of security alert for governments. This could be the only reason why a possible ban has not been discussed. China and India has begun efforts to control or ban crypto currencies in their quest to combat capital outflow, writer’s personal opinion. The EU has stopped Libra from implementation. “A company cannot be allowed Authoring Power for issuance of currencies” quoted the governments. KRATSCOIN is fully decentralized with no ownership nor control by any country, company or individual. Once again, the beauty of Bitcoin decentralization concept prevails.
• “There is no such thing as a world currency. However, since World War II, the dominant or reserve currency of the world has been the U.S. dollar” quoted in google.com.
• Most countries have “Foreign Reserves” as backing to a country’s fiat currency. It is a mean of “back up” attempt should all factors above mentioned leading to the value of their currencies collapse. Then what will happen if the Country of the Foreign Reserves collapse?
• Serial Coded KRATSCOIN belongs to no one, no country, no company and therefore theoretically shall not be effected by politics, war or global economy meltdown yet everyone, every country and every government is able to benefit from KRATSCOIN.

DIFFERENCE BETWEEN FIAT AND CRYPTO

• Fiat Currency is backed by Governments/Countries itself. What determines the value of a currency is the economic health, demand, growth, political stability to name a few, of the respective country. Before 1930, most fiat currencies were backed by gold and silver.
• Since 1971, U.S. citizens have been able to utilize Federal Reserve Notes as the only form of money that for the first time had no currency with any gold or silver backing. This is where you get the saying that U.S. dollars are backed by the “full faith and credit” of the U.S. Government - quoted in google.com.
• What backs crypto value is purely supply and demand. The demand creation of a crypto is its sole objective. To create demand, the crypto has to have a purpose. And most purpose commonly promoted is utility. The number of ways you can utilize the said crypto. The more utilization factors the more demand there is for it.
• There are other ways to substantiate value of a crypto and that is to back the crypto with a 1 to 1 ratio in assets or in USD. Then the question is, how 3,000 crypto currencies in circulation be monetary eco sustainable? Can anyone imagine walking into McDonald and view a chart of 3,000 different pricing? Which also means the crypto is a payment gateway pegging against USD instead of bearing any true characteristic of a currency.
• A country’s currency is in its own legit form of legal tender, the only currency acceptable under financial sovereigns of a country. People in the world must be made to understand that. Retailers in Thailand cannot put up products price tags in EUROS/USD, it is illegal. It has to be in Thai Baht.
• It is hardly imaginable for everyone in the world to retail with a Crypto-Currencies at a rate of 7 transactions per second. When mining nodes are reduced due to non-performing mining ratio, mining blocks in the Blockchain will significantly be limited too, rendering delays in transactions while usage increases.
• In time to come, as trends of crypto picks up, Thailand can issue BAHT COIN or UK the STERLING COIN, exactly what China wishes to do. Digital RMB, but would such crypto currencies be fully decentralized? We all have our answers. Absurd to even think of producing Thai Baht, Pound Sterling or Chinese Yuan at the cost of electricity. It is currencies in digital forms.
KRATSCOIN is not meant for that purpose. In some opinion, apart from utilization, a crypto can be for safekeeping, an entity for keeping money while allowing easy liquidation, at a click of a mobile button, not to mention sending or transferring without the trouble of going to banks, which was the original purpose of Bitcoin to begin with. Therefore, KRATSCOIN would be better termed as Crypto Commodity, sharing similarities as Metal Commodities.
An individual cannot use gold to make a purchase, neither can one eat gold. It can only be kept or invest in for appreciative value over time. Gold is being exampled for its scarcity which reasons for its higher value over its cousin, silver or bronze. Who or what determines the value of gold? Just like any other crypto, demand by humanity. As in all other commodities, it must also be placed in checks by governments. To put in checks, serial numbers are introduced to protect a country’s commodities outflows or illegal exports.
Humanity made Bitcoin a reality. Acceptance by the majority members of the public made Bitcoin to what is it today with the trust they entrusted it with, or is the majority public hopping on the band wagon to make a few quick extra bucks? Whatever the reasons are, the characteristics of Crypto Currencies are only matched by the behavior of Commodities.
SERIALIZED COINS - WHAT IT MEANS FOR THE PUBLIC: Every currency has its own remarkable name, design and colors. Dollars, Euros, Pound, Tugrik, Peso, Rupee, Rupiah, Dina, Ringgit, Baht and the list carries on. One thing every currency have in common - Serial Numbers.
In any crime, investigators will firstly establish motives and mode of operation, both of which are very likely related to money. So following the money trial is a natural thing to do for investigators/authorities and it has become a common practice. Crimes require funding ie robbers need money to buy guns to carry out its robbing activities. Cutting off financing will reduce criminal activities. That’s the approach governments of the WORLD have adopted for crime fighting.
Perhaps people do not realize this while most do not feel the pinch. Humanity tends to take life for granted until apocalypse happens. Take a minute to visualize the tallest tower in your homeland collapse into a pile of dust with thousands of casualties effecting everything else that comes to mind. Imagine a family member, just 1 is enough, is among those casualties.
• Imagine if monetary system is not in place and drug dealers, among many, roam the earth freely distributing what can be death threatening substance to your kids. What if you are mugged of your inheritance [items left to you by your father] that is beyond retrieval? As for crypto enthusiast, what if your wallet gets hacked as even the mighty Pentagon gets hacked. All the above can go away if the crypto system leaves a trail for hound dogs to sniff out. Money Trail or Serial Codes Trail to be exact.
• Citizens rely on governments and their countries to do what is best for them to lead their daily lives, flourish, advance, improve and strive but at the same time, citizens want to take away the single most important thing deemed crucial in the hierarchy of humanity from governments with additional boastful remarks such as “I transferred $400 million from one corner of the earth to another corner in a single transaction and no governments can do anything about it”.
• In-short, to boast unregulated financial movement is to arrogantly promote crime without realizing it while challenging the world’s monetary authority. Oldest advice in the book teaches us never to pick a fight we can’t win.
• Serial Coded Coins does not take away the financial movement freedom nor does it take away your privacy. It merely provides Authorities the necessary means needed for crime prevention and fighting. It only re-inforce security and safety. SERIALIZED COINS - WHAT IT MEANS FOR GOVERNMENTS: • Governments are relentlessly trying to find new ways to keep track of crypto transactions. Crypto Currency Exchanges, just like all other Financial Institutions and Banks, are required to practice the most stringent Know Your Customer (widely known as KYC) process. The KYC is designed to provide governing agencies and authorities with information pertaining to crypto ownerships.
• But no governments can have information on Peer-to-Peer (also known as P2P) transactions unless the government in question launch a full scale Federal Investigation on certain suspected individuals seeking Wallet Developers to unveil the ownership of certain wallet addresses. Do not forget, National and Global Security trumps Privacy Act. Refusal to co-operate under the pretext of Global or National Security will only result in an out-right ban, which is exactly what happened to Blackberry.
• Questions to Governments – What if Wallet Developers or Crypto Exchanges shuts down which can happen for various reasons be it foul-play, sinister or forcefully under threat? What if servers are damaged and ruined? An EMP strike or a simple magnet can make it happen. Information/identities of suspected customers of such addresses shall be lost forever and along with it the Money Trial.
• The most probable way of evading Authorities with crypto assets are developing an e-wallet for own illicit purpose. Since the cost of developing an e-wallet is relatively low in considerable cost to hiding, what can governments do to flush out these ants from the vast networks of tunnels?
• With Serialized Coded Crypto Assets, it doesn’t matter if servers of Exchanges or Wallets are destroyed. The Serial Codes of each token/coin enables governments of every participating country to track both origin and destination by identifying records of each token/coin in wallet address. It can disappear into a cold wallet but emerging some place later yet Authorities can still detail which particular token/coin has at one moment of time been into which wallet, on what day and date.
• If the battle of financial crimes can be resolved with a simple Serialize Coded Crypto Asset, the eradication of corruptions, money laundering, unlawful proceeds and terrorism financing will be made possible. Criminals can no longer exploit the genius creation of Sathoshi – Blockchain and Crypto-Currencies.
• Global Security, Anti-Terrorism Financing and Money Laundering could just be excuses granting government agencies the need to have access to financial information in the Monetary System. Nonetheless, it is in the interest of every nation that capital outflow is controlled. Capital Outflow is most frequent when the economy of a country is deteriorating. In the face of an economy meltdown, monetary flow is most needed and yet citizens tend to transfer monies further away illegally from their own country in an act of selfishness. This would not be tolerated by any country. Serial Coded Coin shall prove this attempt futile.
• In most part of Asian Countries, many crypto-currency mining operations are carried out illegally. The legality sits on thin fine line where Authorities can pin only stealing of electricity as a major concern to the respective country. Since most Power Companies belongs to the Country in one way or another, it is financially damaging to Power Producers and Utility Suppliers. Serial Codes can determine if the KRATSCOIN is mined legally or illegally making it difficult for miners or mining farms to mine crypto while avoiding making electricity payments. Will this deterrent disrupt the chain of KRATSCOIN supply? That’s not how Blockchain Tech works. TAXATIONS - WHAT IT MEANS FOR PUBLIC AND GOVERNMENTS: • Taxation cannot be imposed on “Illegal & Unlawful Proceeds” instead confiscation is enforced in many countries. Origins or proceeds of Serialized Coded Crypto Assets can be easily identified by the Serial Codes in-conjunction with the Blockchain. This exercise can evidently proof the legitimacy of the aforesaid token/coin. By “Illegal & Unlawful Proceeds” also refers to crypto coins obtained via illegal mining operations.
• Taxation on Crypto Assets are calculated on profits deriving from the sale/disposal of the crypto Assets. If we are small crypto believers, the amount of taxation rendered by Inland Revenue will be insignificant. Why risk Freedom of Life over Freedom of Small Monies. If we are big crypto believers, taxation on Serialized Coded Coins can be considered added security to your assets protection.
• By adopting Serialized Crypto Assets, declaration is made easily possible via proof of token/coin origin via the Blockchain. If the Authorities can know where our crypto assets come from, the Authorities will know where it will disappear to. It is taxation cum insurance in one tiny sum. This added security with freedom feature will encourage self-declarations of crypto assets to Authorities and Agencies. PRIVACY & ANONIMITY: • Many may be skeptical of their wealth being tracked and monitored. But in this era of technological advance society, everything we touches has our signature. Banks, iPhones, Samsung Mobiles, Google, Facebook, Whatsapp, WeChat, LINE, Viber, Facebook, Properties, Utilities. Almost everything. It is to this fact that there is a need for Privacy Protection Act.
• As explained before, Crypto Currency Exchange KYC procedures is designed to expose the identity of Crypto Assets ownership. The Blockchain is supposed to serve as a transparent information platform. The question of privacy over Serialized Coded Coins does not exist, it does not make Serialized Coded Coins ownership any less private.
• Ownership of wallet addresses shall always remain anonymous while the only way Authorities can get to it is through Wallet Developers by virtue of Global/National Security Threats or by a Court Order as per the Privacy Protection Act. SAFETY & SECURITY (CODED CRYPTO VS FIAT + COMMODITIES): • No human mind can memorize the millions of serial numbers printed on fiat currencies. The records of Serialized Coded Coins will forever be in the Blockchain embedded within each transaction from wallet to wallet.
• Serialized Commodities such as gold can be melted down. Diamonds recrafted. Fiat double printed. But not Serialized Coded Crypto Assets.
• Should an accessory system be added into the KRATSCOIN Blockchain, allowing reports on criminal activity be made within the Blockchain, notifying all ledgers of certain stolen Serial Coded Coins, enabling WARNINGS and forbidding next transaction of that particular Serial Coded Coin, wouldn’t this function enhance protection. A theft deterrent function which can never be achieved with physical gold, diamonds or fiat. KRATSCOIN SUMMARY: • Most crypto currencies have not reach a level of security alert for governments. This could be the only reason why a possible ban has not been discussed. China and India has begun efforts to control or ban crypto currencies in their quest to combat capital outflow, writer’s personal opinion. The EU has stopped Libra from implementation. “A company cannot be allowed Authoring Power for issuance of currencies” quoted the governments. KRATSCOIN is fully decentralized with no ownership nor control by any country, company or individual. Once again, the beauty of Bitcoin decentralization concept prevails.
• “There is no such thing as a world currency. However, since World War II, the dominant or reserve currency of the world has been the U.S. dollar” quoted in google.com.
• Most countries have “Foreign Reserves” as backing to a country’s fiat currency. It is a mean of “back up” attempt should all factors above mentioned leading to the value of their currencies collapse. Then what will happen if the Country of the Foreign Reserves collapse?
• Serial Coded KRATSCOIN belongs to no one, no country, no company and therefore theoretically shall not be effected by politics, war or global economy meltdown yet everyone, every country and every government is able to benefit from KRATSCOIN.

Dealing with the police

I can't talk about this to my former friends (Who I no longer speak with because I don't want them to feel like they could have done something) so I guess I'm dumping it all here.

Every night this past week, with one exception (Thursday night), I went out driving around looking for a place to Long Drop that's the perfect distance from a hospital for every vital organ except my brain to be saved. Long Dropping is a method of hanging where you fall so far that the rope snaps your neck, rendering it almost completely painless; but not far enough that your head decapitates. It's the method of hanging that was used for official executions in the 19th and early 20th centuries. Unfortunately for normal people without special apparatus it can be logistically tricky setting it all up right. I'm pretty tall and I need an unimpeded vertical space of 14 feet within which I can drop. What's more, I want to make sure the ambulance arrives on the scene RIGHT as the 6 minute mark passes (the point of brain death). This way my organs have the best chance of being harvested for other people's use. https://www.cicm.org.au/CICM_Media/CICMSite/CICM-Website/Resources/Publications/CCR%20Journal/Previous%20Editions/March%202016/ccr_18_1_010316-37.pdf estimates 30.6 Quality Adjusted Life Years (QALYs) saved over doing it in my apartment (which has such a drop). That's a big deal to me. I don't want to live, but there are plenty of mentally healthy individuals undergoing critical surgery, who are loved and needed by their families, friends, spouses, children, communities, employers, all of whom desperately want them in their lives - and who themselves wish to continue living. If I have perfectly functioning organs untinged by drug abuse or medical issues, why shouldn't I give them that opportunity??? I want them to have the freedom to continue their fulfilling lives as greatly as I desire the freedom to end mine.

So around I went through the southern neighbourhoods (Colonias) of my city, in the dead of night, keeping an eye out for any stiff horizontal beams onto which I might tie my knot. Not to do it there and then, mind you; my baby sister is still in undergrad exam period, and I still need to visit the States one more time to probate-proof. I was just in the research phase. I soon realized that the climb itself was a major consideration, and that while I could have a ladder shipped out to anywhere, it'd be much easier and less suspicious to drive up and scale it on the spot. Isolation and the correct distance from hospitals were also key. This effectively whittled my options down to an abandoned water tower in Miramar just south of where the main city starts, and the various unguarded transmission towers even further south. (All the towers in the main city are cordoned off from access, but the newer and poorer districts haven't had that luxury.)

On Tuesday or Wednesday I bought some measuring tape and on Friday night I bought a rope from Home Depot - again, just to see where it hangs. On Friday in the Colonia Arcoiris I find the PERFECT string of towers, way in the outskirts of town and absolutely enormous, their legs lifting them a full 30 feet off the earth. What's more, they're on a dirt road specially made for transmission tower access - there's NOTHING there, just towers and weeds. Most of the other towers here, I have to watch out for passersby, cops, cameras, not to mention how hard it was to get a clean drop with zero obstruction from lower beams. But the Arcoiris towers have joints with nothing under them but bush and bramble, anywhere from 10 to 30 feet. I find the leg with maintenance footholds and hoist myself up to the first beam that I deem high enough, where when they cut the rope, my body would still fall a good 8 feet into the bramble. I love climbing and heights and it's exhilarating being up there. I think about my secretly suicidal middle sister (who doesn't know that I know, I snuck through her high school diary one day) who's taken up rock climbing as an adult. I know exactly how she feels and what she's been plotting all these years. The first thing I think is how tight would it be to climb the whole damn tower, see the entire city from 200 feet above. The second thing I think is Damn I wish I had her skills. I wonder if she failed once and took up rock climbing so she would know exactly how to do it the second time. Then I wonder if rock climbing gave her a reason to live. Being able to climb that whole tower might give me that reason, although I'd probably get thrown in jail or deported.

Reality set in. I had work to do. Trembling, I tied the rope to a beam at 17 feet. I knew if I fell that night I would wind up in a hospital and be asked a million questions not to mention my plan would physically be fucked for months. Carefully I clambered back down. My fall would be clear, alright; I just needed to trim the tops off some bramble. This was simply the perfect place to do it. At last after nights of scoping the ghettos, I had found my spot. I couldn't help but keep admiring how perfect this tower was. At last. It was just perfect.

Then I heard a truck roar past. I'd parked on the side of the dirt road. That's funny, I thought, obviously that's not a utility worker. I remembered there being some abandoned looking signs and fences further down the road. Maybe they weren't so abandoned after all. Then I heard the truck roar back. Stop around my car. I saw lights. Blue and red ones.

This wasn't good.

You really don't want to mess with the police in Mexico. Actual criminals, at least the ones I've encountered or heard of, don't care about civilians. It's not Brazil and they have bigger fish to fry than kidnapping gringos. But the cops, you have no idea what they'll be up to, who they know, or what they want on any given night. Every single interaction I've had with them has been them stopping me for no reason, questioning what I'm doing, searching my pockets, or trying to rob me. I'm out here all by myself in the prairie with the Estatales. Do I have my Bitcoins with me? I'm pretty sure I left my flash drive at home, it has all the real goods. My laptop's still here. In any case, this is bad.

'Hola, que pasa?' I shouted.

'Que pasa contigo?' What's up with you? one of them asked. He was younger than me and slightly built. His partner was older, gruff and thick-set.

I'm just walking around, exploring, I said in my best attempt at casual Spanish. They tell me to put my hands on the car and separate my legs. Holy shit.

I do so. They pat me down and proceed to ask me whether I have drugs or am drinking. Whether I'm there with anyone. I assure them I'm alright and I'm just out, touring around like a dumb tourist. No particular destination. I live in Centro and I work online doing computer stuff. Here are my IDs. You want to search the car? Be my guest.

The younger guy starts talking to me, as the older guy walks off to the tower with a flashlight. We're here to help you and protect you, because at this time of night, there are some bad people around, and we want to make sure you're not in trouble. I'm not, I say, I'm doing just fine. I just like walking around seeing what's out here. Facially, I'm cool as a cucumber; mentally I'm scrambling to figure out how to explain the rope still tied at 17 feet to his partner when he returns. I know the truth will get me 5150'd immediately, possibly deported. Don't these guys have drug dealers to catch? I think to myself.

To my surprise, they let me go without further questioning. 'I strongly advise you to go back home,' the young guy says. I nod, pretending to pretend to understand. What's your name? I ask. Brayan, he says. Have a safe night, Brayan. They drive off.

Whew. That could have ended a lot worse.

I return to the tower and resume thinking. I'll need to practice tying that knot. I'd be better off buying a bike lock with the rope pre-attached and draped around my neck, so I can just clip it on. That way I can try out the strength of all materials at home. I have plenty of space. My biggest fear, bar none, was fucking up. Being a cripple for decades, prevented by well-wishers from ever doing it again, being forced to lie in bed or drink through a tube. That could not happen and would not happen. I could always decap from a pedestrian overbridge I knew downtown. But it would be so ugly for my parents. Not to mention the first responders. No, I had to do what I could to drop hang. And that meant dealing with my fear of falling and retrieving that rope so I could measure out its length from the knot point.

Just as I was about to climb back on, I heard someone pull up slowly behind my vehicle.

I quietly strode back to my car. The real bad guys this time?

It was the same cop, now with all lights off. I stretched out my arms. What? I demanded. You know it's kind of weird, you guys coming back here like this?

No, the weird one is you, the young cop said in English. You're the one being weird.

I just think I left something back there, that's all. Something fell out of my pocket... My measuring tape. I tried looking around in my car but I couldn't find it.

The young guy said he'd go with me. Erm, what kind of gun is that you got? An M-4 (assault rifle), he said. You know I don't have a lot of money on me, I said. Don't worry, he said, we're here to help you. We're here to make sure you're alright.

I got my tape measure, on a rock, a few feet from my rope, and swiftly turn around before he could ask any awkward questions. I immediately get in my car and say, Thanks for your help, Brayan. Have a good night. Ignoring the troubled expression on his face, I drive off ahead of them, happy to be alive. But only so I can tidy up my estate and bequeath my Bitcoins so I can come back and kill myself in a week. Of course. But happy to be alive nonetheless.

When I get home after 20 minutes, I notice there's a truck driving very, very slowly, several blocks behind me. I turn around to stare at it. Presently it approaches where I'm standing. It's a police truck. It speeds up as it passes me, but I distinctly see Brayan and his partner through the windows.

It dawned on me that even the scumbag Mexican state police was for some reason fundamentally and sincerely invested in preventing my death. Had I explained that it would save hundreds of lives in Africa - not to mention ameliorate the exploitation of thousands of their own Mexican countrymen in the fields and factories - they would still have 5150'd me. Had I explained that the only thing they were doing is forcing me to decap, or even worse, ruining the postmortem donation value of my organs, they would STILL have 5150'd me. I'm 100% sure of this. Sure, it's called doing your job. Sure, it's called a protocol. But somebody high up in the ranks of the police force decided to include my life in that protocol. Decided that I should not die so that others may live. Decided that the proximity of my death to that community gave it more weight than the deaths of labourers and farmers in Mexico and Africa. Decided that my organs are worth more together than apart. All without knowing me and everything that's wrong with my evil soul.

No matter its consequences, the thing I intend to do is detestable and absolutely unacceptable to society; everybody is going to do everything they can to oppose it. What Brayan represented was the implicit rejection of my desires by Western society. I saw through his words and actions that no one will ever trust anything I say, regardless of how jovial or relaxed my mood appears to be. In fact there is an invisible barrier of distrust separating me from every other reasoning functioning human being on earth which no amount of logic or ethics will ever break down, no matter how indisputable and obvious it becomes that the world will be a better place if I'm dead. I've tried to hire people to help me, to no avail. I met a couple, boyfriend and girlfriend, who both claimed they supported voluntary euthanasia, the right to leave this life with dignity and choice. But when it came to a specific person, me, they could not even be paid to help. It's like I've become a place where logic itself frays.

I truly don't understand it.

Do Not Go Into The Black Room On The Dark Web! You Have Been Warned!

Last year I did something really bad. I got onto the dark web with a few friends and I'm telling you it is real. There's a certain site and I'm not giving the full name. Let's just call it "The Black Room." Me and my friends waited until their parents went to bed and all three of us pulled up chairs to the computer.
It was a live streaming site that read ливе превиев which translates to "Live Preview" in Serbian. There was a black screen and people were typing into the chat box in another language. We just watched and waited for something to happen.
A topless woman with long dark brown hair appeared in a chair. She was wearing blue jeans. Her hands were tied with what looked to be thin blue ropes and duct tape double wrapped. I guess it was to make sure she didn't get out. Her feet were cuffed together with what looked like metal leg cuffs. She had a blank look on her face. The camera flashed off to dark again. It looked like someone was covering the camera with a towel.
Then I heard the sick sound of a drill being turned on. The towel was removed. I heard her shouting in another language probably begging for her life. Screaming and crying, but she could not move. There was a shirtless man in a BDSM mask. If you don't know what that is I suggest you look it up.
It was a black leather looking mask with eye holes and a zipper where you could zip up your mouth. She began screaming and I wanted to turn away, but curiosity got the best of me.
He put the fat metal tip of the drill straight into her damn eye. It made a sickening squishing sound and she was moaning and screaming as the drill went directly through her eyeball. Dark red blood began oozing out and it looked liked the poor woman was going into shock, she was shaking so bad.
The camera had zoomed in. Her eye was still attached and had major blunt force trauma. It looked liked a big black bloody hole, her eye was half there somewhat. It was really hard to look at. Then the camera lens went black again.
We heard 2 loud pops that sounded like a gun. It was silent. No more sound, no more video. The viewing was obviously over. Oh my god I told my friends I just think we witnessed a murder, they shot her they really f%king shot her. My friends and I agreed we would never watch anything like this again!
I went home feeling disgusted with myself. I hoped and prayed it was not real. Sadly it may have been. I promised myself no more, I would never watch anything like that again. That lasted til about the next weekend.
Next Saturday night after playing the PS4 for a few hours we began to get tired and smoked a few joints to wake us up. Then my best friend we will call him "Rob" suggested we get on the dark web again. Rob is a computer genius and knows how to get deep into the dark web. He used a VPN We decided to click on the "The Black Room" again.
Rob told me that only 4% of the internet is visible to the public and 96% of the remaining is made up of the "Deep Web". That made me feel a bit sick to my stomach. What a disturbing thought.
It took a few hours and the site wanted us to pay with bitcoin and we did. I don't know how we easily got in the first time without paying, I guess we just got lucky because they wanted us to pay next time. This time the screen was not black and there was a concrete looking room and a bucket.
A big heavy set man had this white pillowcase around his head with holes cut out for his eyes and mouth. You could not see his face. He picked up the bucket and began laughing, showing us the bucket and then showing what was in the bucket.
I almost threw up! It was a bucket full of body parts. Human body parts floating in this clotted red goop. I was assuming it was coagulated blood I just remember seeing bloody teeth, a few fingers and what looked like a couple of eyeballs or what was left of them. This couldn't be real I thought, but by the way the man was laughing it was no joke. It had to be animal parts I thought. Please let it be animal parts.
The camera zoomed in and on the bucket was a white piece of paper that read "Victim # 12". It was written in permanent marker. Was this the remains of some poor unfortunate soul who got brutalized like the first victim? Was this the remains of the poor lady we saw last week. Ugh I had really hoped not.
I wasn't prepared for what happened next. The screen went black again and in a chair sat another woman, this time with blond hair and her eyes were covered with a black scarf. She was bounded by her hands and feet with the same looking thin blue rope and I felt very sorry for her.
Her waist was strapped in with some sort of belt holding her down onto the chair. A white sheet was hung up behind her. I wanted to help her and felt like there was nothing I could do.
The fat man began dipping his hands in the gooey mess and trying to shove it in the woman's mouth! She tried to hold her mouth shut, but the man got angrier and slapped her in the face. It sounded like he was telling her "Eat it" "Eat it" She began to chew and cry and then vomited the whole mess up on her pretty white silk blouse. The chat box was going wild! People were typing in different languages and the chat box was going wild! Then I heard it. The cranking of a chainsaw.
There standing beside the poor girl appeared the same man from the first video.He was holding a chainsaw, shirtless black mask and all. I got a sickening feeling in my stomach. This is not going to be good. I had seen what chainsaws do to people. Chainsaw accidents are horrible. I wanted to stop viewing right then in there, but my friends were eager to watch and I didn't want to seem like a wuss.
She was screaming her guts out, flailing trying to get out of the chair. Good thing we all had our headphones on because this was really loud.
I watched in horror as he begin to try and cut off her arm. The chainsaw went through a little and then kicked back in a jerky upward motion coming close to knocking her attacker out. He must have hit her arm bone I thought. I think this really angered him, I could hear him screaming in another language so I assume he might have got nicked by the chainsaw.
Suddenly he shoved the blade directly into her stomach area. He pushed in and began to cut vertically upwards, her faint screams muffled by the chainsaw.
Droplets of blood began spraying into the air onto the sheet, little pieces of meat and tissue flew all over the room. She began convulsing her eyes rolled to the back of her head and she was gone. Just like that. The man slowly pulled the chainsaw out and as he did I could see what looked like her intestines hanging out. The screen went black .
I ran to the bathroom to throw up. I think I threw up for 15 minutes. I almost passed out. My friends laughed at me and I knew behind the laughter it disturbed them too.
All I know now is there are some really sick people out in there in different parts of the world that will do anything on the web for money. These people have no heart or soul. They are inhumane and sick in the head. So stay off the Dark Web! There are just some things you can never forget that will disturb and your mind forever. You will not be able to undo what you have seen. Remember that!

Do Not Go Into The Black Room On The Dark Web! You Have Been Warned!

Last year I did something really bad. I got onto the dark web with a few friends and I'm telling you it is real. There's a certain site and I'm not giving the full name. Let's just call it " The Black Room" Me and my friends waited until their parents went to bed and all three of us pulled up chairs to the computer. It was a live streaming site that read ливе превиев which translates to "Live Preview" in Serbian. There was a black screen and people were typing into the chat box in another language. We just watched and waited for something to happen.

A topless woman with long dark brown hair appeared in a chair. She was wearing blue jeans. Her hands were tied with what looked to be thin blue ropes and duct tape double wrapped. I guess it was to make sure she didn't get out. Her feet were cuffed together with what looked like metal leg cuffs. She had a blank look on her face. The camera flashed off to dark again. It looked like someone was covering the camera with a towel. Then I heard the sick sound of a drill being turned on. The towel was removed. I heard her shouting in another language probably begging for her life. Screaming and crying, but she could not move. There was a shirtless man in a BDSM mask. If you don't know what that is I suggest you look it up. It was a black leather looking mask with eye holes and a zipper where you could zip up your mouth. She began screaming and I wanted to turn away, but curiosity got the best of me.

He put the fat metal tip of the drill straight into her damn eye. It made a sickening squishing sound and she was moaning and screaming as the drill went directly through her eyeball. Dark red blood began oozing out and it looked liked the poor woman was going into shock, she was shaking so bad. The camera had zoomed in. Her eye was still attached and had major blunt force trauma. It looked liked a big black bloody hole, her eye was half there somewhat. It was really hard to look at. Then the camera lens went black again.

We heard 2 loud pops that sounded like a gun. It was silent. No more sound, no more video. The viewing was obviously over. Oh my god I told my friends I just think we witnessed a murder, they shot her they really f%king shot her. My friends and I agreed we would never watch anything like this again! I went home feeling disgusted with myself. I hoped and prayed it was not real. Sadly it may have been. I promised myself no more, I would never watch anything like that again. That lasted til about the next weekend.

Next Saturday night after playing the PS4 for a few hours we began to get tired and smoked a few joints to wake us up. Then my best friend we will call him "Rob" suggested we get on the dark web again. Rob is a computer genius and knows how to get deep into the dark web. He used a VPN We decided to click on the "The Black Room" again. Rob told me that only 4% of the internet is visible to the public and 96% of the remaining is made up of the "Deep Web". That made me feel a bit sick to my stomach. What a disturbing thought.

It took a few hours and the site wanted us to pay with bitcoin and we did. I don't know how we easily got in the first time without paying, I guess we just got lucky because they wanted us to pay next time. This time the screen was not black and there was a concrete looking room and a bucket. A big heavy set man had this white pillowcase around his head with holes cut out for his eyes and mouth. You could not see his face. He picked up the bucket and began laughing, showing us the bucket and then showing what was in the bucket.

I almost threw up! It was a bucket full of body parts. Human body parts floating in this clotted red goop. I was assuming it was coagulated blood I just remember seeing bloody teeth, a few fingers and what looked like a couple of eyeballs or what was left of them. This couldn't be real I thought, but by the way the man was laughing it was no joke. It had to be animal parts I thought. Please let it be animal parts. The camera zoomed in and on the bucket was a white piece of paper that read "Victim # 12". It was written in permanent marker. Was this the remains of some poor unfortunate soul who got brutalized like the first victim? Was this the remains of the poor lady we saw last week. Ugh I had really hoped not.

I wasn't prepared for what happened next. The screen went black again and in a chair sat another woman, this time with blond hair and her eyes were covered with a black scarf. She was bounded by her hands and feet with the same looking thin blue rope and I felt very sorry for her. Her waist was strapped in with some sort of belt holding her down onto the chair. A white sheet was hung up behind her. I wanted to help her and felt like there was nothing I could do.

The fat man began dipping his hands in the gooey mess and trying to shove it in the woman's mouth! She tried to hold her mouth shut, but the man got angrier and slapped her in the face. It sounded like he was telling her "Eat it" "Eat it" She began to chew and cry and then vomited the whole mess up on her pretty white silk blouse. The chat box was going wild! People were typing in different languages and the chat box was going wild! Then I heard it. The cranking of a chainsaw.

There standing beside the poor girl appeared the same man from the first video.He was holding a chainsaw, shirtless black mask and all. I got a sickening feeling in my stomach. This is not going to be good. I had seen what chainsaws do to people. Chainsaw accidents are horrible. I wanted to stop viewing right then in there, but my friends were eager to watch and I didn't want to seem like a wuss. She was screaming her guts out, flailing trying to get out of the chair. Good thing we all had our headphones on because this was really loud.

I watched in horror as he begin to try and cut off her arm. The chainsaw went through a little and then kicked back in a jerky upward motion coming close to knocking her attacker out. He must have hit her arm bone I thought. I think this really angered him, I could hear him screaming in another language so I assume he might have got nicked by the chainsaw. Suddenly he shoved the blade directly into her stomach area. He pushed in and began to cut vertically upwards, her faint screams muffled by the chainsaw.

Droplets of blood began spraying into the air onto the sheet, little pieces of meat and tissue flew all over the room. She began convulsing her eyes rolled to the back of her head and she was gone. Just like that. The man slowly pulled the chainsaw out and as he did I could see what looked like her intestines hanging out. The screen went black . I ran to the bathroom to throw up. I think I threw up for 15 minutes. I almost passed out. My friends laughed at me and I knew behind the laughter it disturbed them too.

All I know now is there are some really sick people out in there in different parts of the world that will do anything on the web for money. These people have no heart or soul. They are inhumane and sick in the head. So stay off the Dark Web! There are just some things you can never forget that will disturb and your mind forever.
