Here is the Graphical Representation of the Mess…


Well we must take into account that hacks done in years past would be much more valuable in the tokens at today’s values. Also hacks this year might now have values of 1/2 that which were reported.  None the less at first appearance these values would appear to be pretty large.  But then the worlds crypto economies are pretty large, say 1/4 to $1 Trillion.  I wonder what the established Banking Sector’s record is compared to the Crypto Space….


Lehman Brs. Housing Loans $600 Billion early/mid 2000’s
Madeoff Invst Sec Ponzi $64.8 Billion Dec 2009
Standard Chartered Enemy Loans $250 Billion Dec 2012
HSBC Mex Drug Laundering $1.9 Billion Aug 2012
Kabul Bank Fake Loans $861 Million 2012
USB Bad Investments $2.3 Billion 2012
RBS, UBS, CitiBank, HSBC, JP Morgan Fixing Foreign Exchange Rates $2.6 Billion FINE! Unknown 2014

Which brings us to the GRAND DADDY OF THEM ALL, the “LIBOR SCANDAL”.

Well the LIBOR (London Inter Bank Overnight Rate) is the base rate that sets just about every other interest rate in existence. It is the basis for Car Loans, Home Loans, Business Loans, Development Loans, Credit Card Loans.  The Banks were caught colluding on setting the LIBOR rate artificially high to get the extra interest. This went on for years, perhaps even decades, the absolute amount that the banksters stole will never be known, but it is a whopping HUGE number, perhaps in the $100’s of  TRILLIONS.  What we do know is that the Banks have paid $22 BILLION in FINES, only a drop in the bucket (yet 44 times larger than the LARGEST Crypto Hack).  The ASSETS (loans) out that are affected by the LIBOR rate are valued at over $350 TRILLION.  Add up the skimmings off of that over a few decades and see what kind of number you come up with…


Hmmm, looks to me like there is an order of magnitude $$$ difference here on the order of 1-10,000+ maybe even 100,000 times difference.  Is the “establishment” financial world really more than 1-10,000 times larger, maybe even 100,000 times larger, than the crypto financial space?  I don’t think so.  I think there is an order of magnitude more FRAUD in the TRADITIONAL and ESTABLISHED Financial System.  

This does not even consider the fact of TRANSPARENCY.  It can take years, even decades for the wrongdoings of the Banksters to come to light, take the LIBOR Scandal for example. To the contrary of this we have the CryptoEconomy, where TRANSPARENCY brings all to light quickly.  We hear about HACKS the same day or day after they happen.  Often the involved accounts get frozen and part of the funds are salvaged.  Even some 3ed Generation Blockchains have these types of Governance abilities built right into their foundation structures (EOS, TeLOS, WORBLI).  Indeed, this is a much safer and more honest environment than the traditional established banking system.


These are the EXACT REASON we need CryptoEconomies, so that people can get away from the FRAUDsters (aka Banksters).  If you don’t want your hard earned money to be swindled away, you best RUN to the CRYPTO MARKETS and save yourself, your family and your loved ones.!!!!

      This morning when I woke up I realized something important that I didn’t state in the article. It would seem the day there is a SCAM on the Blockchain,,, the news spreads like WILDFIRE. But in the “established” markets,,, it might take years or decades for bad actors to show up……. TRANSPARENCY !!!!! The Blockchain is TRANSPARENT,,, and the bad actors don’t have much time to hide…..

    Yes, it’s interesting that so few bankers go to jail (apart from a few scapegoats served-up by the banks to protect the people on the boards and what they knew) for the financial crash of 2008 and fixing the Libor rate, the very cornerstone of capitalism, while Obama and Trump are also pardoning various banks. Crypto is a gift from the gods.

    Unfortunately, the banks have their hands in everything and this includes politicians. It is precisely for that reason that we need to act as quickly as possible to switch to cryptos.

    Man this post should be bookmarked, printed and given to anyone who’s going to do a debate with people who are about to trash the sector.

    When it comes to fraud, it’s not even the same Zipcode!

    Well done @i-am! Amazing work.

    1. TRUTH(@i-am) Post author

      and that’s the EXTREMELY short list. The Bankster frauds have been going on for 100’s if not 1,000’s of years. Do you remember the “Keating 5” and the Savings N Loan scandals of the 1980’s? I do….. no respect for politicians or banksters.
