Banks Are SELLING Your Financial Data!

Banks Are SELLING Your Financial Data!

Financial privacy is essential for a free society, because it allows us to support causes we believe in without fear of retribution, to flee dangerous situations without being tracked, to live our daily lives without feeling like every choice we make is on display and needs to be self-censored.

How can we have a truly free society if the way we interact with the world around us is constantly monitored and controlled? But that’s exactly what’s going on right now. In this presentation I explain how surveillance of the traditional financial system works, and what solutions there are for reclaiming your right to financial privacy.

Traditional privacy tools like cash continue to dwindle in relevance, but cryptocurrencies like privacy coins present themselves as torchbearers of financial privacy in this new digital era.

But the level of privacy you get is contingent upon the choices you make — it’s not enough to use things like privacy coins, you have to know how to use them properly.
