Digital currency, Digital I.D. plans being rolled out in the post COVID era

Authored/Edited- RS Hart

Plans for a Cashless society have been moving along for more than a decade now,as I’ve chronicled here before. But in the past handful of years & with the dawn of the post COVID era (2020-2030), those plans are beginning to accelerate. The world’s reserve Fiat currency(The US dollar) has been on some shaky ground for a while now,and we might be looking at another financial collapse sooner rather than later. While a cashless society isn’t an entirely nefarious plan,the fact is that’s where the trends with technologies were heading to anyway. What is nefarious is the agenda to exploit these advances in technology for the benefit of a small wealthy financial elite,and the agenda to consolidate this technology in the hands of central governments for greater control of their populations. Crypto currencies and the Block chain have been groundbreaking developments and have set the standard for cashless transactions. But now Elite’s of corporations and governments want to utilize this technology for greater social/financial control of mass populations.

A recent case in point is the IMF discussing the institution of Central bank digital based currencies(CBDC’s). 2019/2020 seems to be the year of accelerated promotion of CBDC’s.

In January, the Bank of Canada, the Bank of England, the Bank of Japan, the Sveriges Riksbank (Sweden) and the Swiss National Bank, together with the European Central Bank and BIS, announced they had formed a group to assess the opportunities for CBDCs in their home jurisdictions“.

Further: ” A Bank for International Settlements (BIS) survey published earlier this year. According to the survey’s results, nearly 80% of central banks that responded in 2019 indicated they are engaged in or plan to commence CBDC development“.

The IMF and BIS are big time players in the world of international finance and the overlords of the current Debt based fiat currency program. With talk of “The great reset” coming from the same financial elite’s in Davos,Switzerland,you can most assuradley see that there is a framework being set up for a one world financial system a.k.a New World Order. The push for Cashless has been going on for some time now.But now the COVID-19 “pandemic” has provided the most convenient justification for accelerating the cashless agenda,to promote “contacless” banking and exchange of currencies worldwide,all for your safety of course .Just like the same line was used to promote the “War on Terror” post 9-11,now we are in a battle with a new invisible enemy,and you need to give up some or (mostly all) of your freedoms if you wish to remain “safe”.

Another related front to the Digital Currencies being promoted is the idea of Bio-security, The use of Digital forms of ID,which in some cases (and the agenda is moving in this direction) utilizes biometrics to authenticate your “digital person”. Not only is cash a “dirty” and outdated mode of transaction in the post pandemic era,but so is the freedom to travel without digital surveillance.

Que up the United Nations and their announcement of a digital ID for UN personnel that combines Blockchain and Biometrics (See where this is going??)

UN launches Digital ID wallet with biometric security

“A solution combining biometrics, blockchain and mobile technology developed for UN personnel by the UN Digital Solutions Center (UN DSC) has won a technology challenge, the agency announced.

UN DSC is a pilot project of the World Food Programme and UNHCR with operational support from UNICC, intended to create digital solutions to help UN agencies with common operational and transactional tasks.

The UN Digital ID is a digital wallet that agency personnel can use for data related to human resources, medical status, travel, payroll and pensions, which can also be used for onboarding new employees, leaving or retiring from the organization.”

Good to see that the UN is on the “progressive” path of providing for it’s “personnel” from Cradle to Grave isn’t it?

As Spiros Skouras has pointed out at Activist post:

I can’t help but to raise the question, what kind of social controls could this possibly provide the technocrats if people decide not to obey certain restrictions or requirements? ForExample: If you didn’t get your latest shot, individuals may face travel restrictions. Or, you may not be able go to work, or your payments may be frozen until you comply.

They may not have to mandate anything if they can ‘encourage’ you to obey.

Inevitably With the advances of technology,the world will continue to move away from physical to digital/biometric ID, As observed by Biometric update: Five years from now there will be more than six billion digital identity apps in use around the world, up from just over a billion today, according to a Juniper Research forecast. The research also suggests that those civic identity apps will be their predominant form, and that there will be 40 percent more digital ID apps than cards by 2025. But the consideration for digital surveillance and tracking of populations and individual privacy seems to fall by the wayside,Convenience and ease of use have become the prevailing paradigm.

Other Future related trends of concern that will further erode personal and digital privacy are Social crediting systems,As pioneered by Communist China. And Body activity based Cryptocurrency mining as patented by uber corporatist’s Microsoft. While future trends will continue to move into the digital realm,the public should remain vigilant. Meanwhile mega corporations and governments will never abandon their own history of predatory behavior.

Moving Towards a Cashless World Order?

At one point in recent history it was said that “Cash is King”, Well that no longer seems to be the case. in fact there is a concerted effort to phase out Physical money/assets, and to make the majority of the population dependent upon credit’s and digital money. Sure if you really know your research, you’ll already know that Federal Reserve notes, A.K.A. Dollars are simply notes printed to denote a Debt to the fractional reserve banking system. But the latest plan seems to be to phase out any kind of physical wealth and to replace it with digital credit, (Of course kept in the care of Government, or Government affiliated Banking institutions). And of course if you aren’t already independently wealthy, or economically independent (which most of us are not..) You are subjected into submitting to the coming Cashless World order


What the world saw in The Global Economic Crash (Nee,Swindle) of 2008 is proof that Governments will do whatever they can to prop up the (current) global economic system of profit and monopoly,And if those same governments that supported the bailouts of the financial industry were willing to mortage away their citizens (In)vestments,than they would surely be willing to use them as test subjects for a global cashless control system.

The phasing out of physical (Cash) assets has been a slow drip methodology, with the advent of credit and Debit payments citizens have been encouraged to rely on their bank cards rather than carrying a wad of cash in their wallet. And so Electronic payment has become a Global Phenomena,Many countries around the world are slowly instituting programs that either outright ban large amounts of cash or place a restriction on it’s use.

The current list includes Countries such as:

CANADA– In 2007 the Canadian government stopped allowing payment of taxes in cash at government service centers. In 2010 Passport Canada followed suit. In 2012 The Canadian mint introduced the Mintchip credit payment system, moving further away from cash to a credit based system.

MEXICO – In 2013 the Mexican government banned cash payments of more than 500,000 pesos for real estate and more than 200,000 pesos for cars, jewelry or lottery tickets.

U.K. – In 2014 cashless payments surpassed cash payments for the first time in the UK,and just last year the Bank of England’s chief economist made the case for negative interest rates and abolishing cash.

INDIA– India is one of the most cash-dependent economies in the world with a cash-to-GDP ratio of 12%, almost four times that of fellow BRICS nations Brazil and South Africa. Just recently in 2015 India pulled 86% of it’s cash assets out of circulation,causing a mass chaos across the country. The direct shortage of cash, with no reliable alternative system in wide use among the nation’s poorer majority, resulted in demand that outstripped supply on every front for physical cash and a means of exchange,which could bring the daily functioning of the Nations Economy to halt.

These same trends are incrementally taking place in many other nations such as China, The European Union,and Several South American nations. <em>While none of these countries have fully eliminated cash from circulation, the banks/government make is sound “trendy”,or convenient to never use cash. Why force a policy change when you can convince the people to hand over their freewill?

Alongside these internal Banker/Bureaucrat plans to phase out cash, The secretive “discussions” of the Bildeberg Group have also centered on the Abolition of cash economies in favor of a One world economic credit system.

A cashless Society could be the ultimate form of control, lorded over by Technocrats and Elitists. A “chipped” population would be the ultimate leverage in such a digital system,and if the people cant be convinced of that, they can always be forced.

If society becomes cashless, dissenters can’t hide cash. All of their financial holdings would be vulnerable to an attack by the government.
This would be the ultimate form of control. Because – without access to money – people couldn’t resist, couldn’t hide and couldn’t escape.
