Illegal capital outflow collectively costs nations around the world upwards of trillions in capital that is seldom recovered. Not to be confused with capital flight – which is an outflow of money that travels through the proper legal channels, illegal capital flight entails moving illicitly obtained wealth into another country in an attempt to obfuscate its origin and evade authorities. Illegal capital outflow affects both wealthy and poor nations on every continent aside from Antarctica. Cryptocurrency could either exacerbate this problem, or be the solution, depending on how it is adopted by the world.
“What everyone got really excited about was, hey, I can publish a paper and people will send me money.” — J. R. Willet, the creator of the first ICO.
This is a fascinating and revolutionary concept: pitch your product idea to the community, and if they like it, they’ll send you money to get your private business or decentralized application off the ground.
But an idea itself is worth very little. How an idea works in practice is of much greater importance. Unfortunately, this evaluation paints a story of scams, incompetence, recklessness, and greed.
If the American midterm elections have reminded us of anything, it is that electoral controversies easily spill beyond the politics between candidates, and into the election process itself. The integrity of the November 6 elections has been marred with claims of voter fraud and suppression tactics, discoveries of votes being misplaced or turning inadmissible after not physically reaching counting stations before deadlines, and official sources reporting that technical glitches had caused ballots to be counted for a different candidate than the voter specified or not counted at all.
The Great Digital Gold Capers: How Founders and Early Adopters Can Salt Cryptocurrency Mines for Self-Enrichment
Fast moving digital currency markets have seen their fair share of winners and losers who became so swept up by the promise of quick profit that their better judgement was gone with the wind. The long-term consequences of this mentality may be less apparent as the newly popularized digital currency industry rides a wave of public excitement, but as surely as all bubbles collapse, so too shall the bubbles that have been formed by the ‘tech-investor-esque’ mentality that has permeated the industry to its core. These aggressive early investors demand rapid growth and quick payoff, which has resulted in a litany of business failures throughout the industry.
Today, October 31st, marks the ten-year anniversary since the pseudonymous Satoshi Nakamoto released the Bitcoin whitepaper.

ICOs have been rightly criticized for being susceptible to scams, but a little basic due diligence can help any investor avoid potential trouble. And make no mistake; that due diligence is an absolute necessity, given recent history. After all, some cryptocurrencies have raised unbelievable amounts of money without ever producing a real product – just empty promises.
Vaporware is software or hardware that is announced publicly and actively promoted, even though it does not exist. Studies have shown that 81% of all ICOs have turned out to be scams, which highlights the lack of due diligence from investors who bought into these projects. The most striking factor in all of this is that even though an ICO turns out to be a failure or scam, the team behind it always walks away with money.
DNotes Global, Inc. today announced that company CEO Alan Yong has been invited to deliver a keynote speech at the Emerge ICO Summit on October 9 in Austin, Texas, in which he is expected to share his vision for the blockchain and digital currency industry.
The Emerge ICO Summit is being hosted by Ten Capital Group, and will bring together angel investors, venture capitalists, and crypto hedge funds from the Ten ICO Syndicate with cryptocurrency startups and other companies raising ICO funds. The event is billed as an opportunity for blockchain-based startups to interact directly with technology investors.
At DCEBrief, we are committed to providing the information that our readers need to educate themselves about the digital currency and blockchain revolution. As part of that commitment, we support the efforts of other groups and organizations that share that vision. After all, true mass adoption of this technology innovation required an educated and informed population.
We recently had an opportunity to interview Erica Stanford, co-founder of Cryptocurrency Simplified – a platform that shares our commitment to ensuring that people have the resources they need to understand and use digital currency and the blockchain. In that interview, she provided details and insight about her exciting project.
The distributed ledger system that most people know as the blockchain is a truly ingenious innovation with many positive world-changing implications. It not only enables digital currencies to thrive, but also provides new options for self-empowering digital payments and new ways to maintain time-stamped, immutable record-keeping. Merchants will be able to eventually use digital currencies for 100% of a new generation of debit and credit card transactions, while enjoying the benefit of a completely auditable transaction trail thanks to the blockchain.
Before that vision can become a reality, however, there are many challenges and obstacles that need to be overcome. Fortunately, DNotes Global Inc is committed to identifying those challenges and creating viable solutions that overcome obstacles. DNotes’ Blockchain Integrated Invoicing is one clear example of that commitment.
Capitalism’s distinction from economic ideologies is that anyone can enter a market, leverage their skill set and have an equal chance to climb the ladder based on their performance. A dictator, ruler, or union doesn’t decide how much your work is worth; the free market does. Some proponents of economic ideologies often mislabel free market capitalism as just another ideology, but they couldn’t be more wrong. Free market capitalism means that the economy is devoid of the regulatory environment required to enable groups or individuals to impose their theories on how an economy should be run through regulation, coercion, or force.
The Dogecoin cryptocurrency was Founded in late 2013 with branding that played on a cartoon dog. It quickly became a hit among the younger participants in the cryptocurrency community. Based on an internet meme, Dogecoin’s founders exploited this brand recognition among their target audience, and it worked! The website Dogecoin.com was first published as a joke, but after it went live the website’s publishers were approached by a developer who offered to compile them a Dogecoin-branded QT client.
One of the things that makes DNotes truly unique in an industry packed with rival digital currencies is the fact that the DNotes currency doesn’t exist within a vacuum. Instead, it exists within an entire ecosystem of products and services designed to support and facilitate its overall mission. The components of that ecosystem were all specifically created to further DNotes’ goal of achieving mass acceptance and adoption, while simultaneously providing invaluable services to the industry and public. Our innovative CRISP offerings are a perfect example of how that works.
As a core component of the DNotes ecosystem, CRISP is strategically linked to that system and was created to help us achieve DNotes’ ultimate objective: becoming an inclusive digital currency in global commerce, for the benefit of everyone. In this article, I will explain how CRISP fits into the DNotes and DNotes Global model in a way that benefits everyone on the network.
“If at first, the idea is not absurd, then there is no hope for it.” – Albert Einstein
In recent years, Initial coin offerings have become a popular way for many blockchain-related projects to obtain needed capital. In fact, 2017 saw ICOs bring in roughly six times as much capital as traditional venture capital funding rounds. And while some observers might have expected that fundraising success to taper off as cryptocurrencies declined in value in 2018, ICOs have continued to attract substantial investment. Unfortunately, that success has also attracted attention from regulators, and calls for greater oversight of the cryptocurrency industry and its fundraising efforts.
Recently, DCEBrief had the opportunity to speak with DNotes Global Inc co-founder and CEO Alan Yong and we asked him to share his thoughts on the current issues surrounding initial coin offerings. Below is the transcript of that conversation.
Aside from the painstakingly obvious differentiating factors such as total supply, algorithm, and name, there are several distinctions between Litecoin and Bitcoin. Although Litecoin’s leadership and community often sells itself short by dubbing Litecoin as ‘the silver to Bitcoin’s gold’, it has several distinct advantages over Bitcoin.
“If at first, the idea is not absurd, then there is no hope for it.” – Albert Einstein
True to the words of Albert Einstein himself, DNotes global digital currency – a perceived underdog among industry peers – has often received short thrift from naysayers who have yet to formulate a valid argument against the currency. That’s primarily because they haven’t taken the time to fully understand it. After all, DNotes is not just another cryptocurrency, though it is easy to overlook the uniqueness of DNotes’ path because of the sheer massiveness of its scope. DNotes is not just simply targeting niche markets like apps or software, but instead is focused like a laser on becoming the global digital currency of the future
Governing bodies have been the sole arbiter of sanctions and stimulus for too long now, and the people have very little control over economic matters that affect their own lives. Ordinary people often lack a voice on the stage where these matters are discussed, and even if they had a voice, they have no real leverage to bring to the negotiating table. Most ordinary people face heavy burdens from debt, liabilities, lack of liquid assets, many fail to grasp basic economic concepts, and there are a lot of people who couldn’t care less. It is high time that people who do care take back control of their own lives, begin reducing nanny state economic controls, and embrace the free market on a society wide level.
