'The Bank has pitched Britcoin as “a new form of digital money issued by the Bank of England and for use by households and businesses” and said it would “exist alongside cash and bank deposits, rather than replacing them.”

And which nation is most advanced with tests of its own CDBC, including for cross-border payments, while admitting it likes digital cash because it will let it surveil transactions?

“Twitter has profited from the knowing distribution of child sexual abuse material depicting these two young men when they were children, and it must be held accountable. Twitter cannot sweep under the rug the fact that it both allowed child sexual abuse material on its site and refused to remove it,” blasted Peter Gentala, senior legal counsel for NCOSE.
