  1. tldr; Crypto exchange Binance, the world’s largest exchange, was asked by Russia’s financial intelligence unit to hand over client data, including names and addresses, to help them fight crime, according to text messages sent to a business associate. The agency, known as Rosfinmonitoring or Rosfin, was seeking to trace millions of dollars in bitcoin raised by jailed Russian opposition leader Alexei Navalny, a person familiar with the matter said.

  2. For the US State Department, this propaganda attacks two enemies at once: bitcoin and Russia.

    And we can trace the roots of this military-grade propaganda to the dismantling of the Smith-Mundt Act in 2014 which allowed sophisticated propaganda once only broadcast overseas to our enemies to be transmitted directly to the American people.

    As a result, brainwashing you with fake plagues and cow fart climates is all too easy.

  3. So first there are news Binance sets a 10k Euro limit for Russian users then that blocks some Russian users assets. Now the news they gave ALL the user info to Russians. I assume it’s not about Russia after all – it’s just the way they do business.
    Something tells me it’s not a reliable platform at all. Mb could be ok for a short shitlist of shitcoins but nothing more than $100. If you’re ok with your personal data handed to Russians and any other agency from whatever country of course.
    Remember – not your keys (or wallet in this case) – not your money.
