Ethereum Creator Asks "Do Rothschilds Control Cryptocurrencies?"

In December, the Rothschild family reportedly purchased bitcoin exposure, via the Grayscale Bitcoin Trust, for the first time. They were not alone as later in the year, as we detailed here, Venrock, the official venture capital arm of the Rockefeller family, has partnered with crypto investment group Coinfund to support cryptocurrency and Blockchain business innovation, Fortune reported April 6.

So the involvement of some of the oldest-money-families in the world in what Warren Buffett and Charlie Munger call "unproductive turds" has raised more than few questions about whether the Rothschilds and the like can control crytpocurrencies.

The conspiracy theories around Rothschilds’ cryptocurrency control are being heated up by a 1988 publication in The Economist, a magazine controlled by the family.

Thirty years from now, Americans, Japanese, Europeans, and people in many other rich countries, and some relatively poor ones will probably be paying for their shopping with the same currency. Prices will be quoted not in dollars, yen or D-marks but in, let’s say, the phoenix. The phoenix will be favored by companies and shoppers because it will be more convenient than today’s national currencies, which by then will seem a quaint cause of much disruption to economic life in the last twentieth century...

The biggest change in the new world economy since the early 1970’s is that flows of money have replaced trade in goods as the force that drives exchange rates...

The alternative – to preserve policymaking autonomy- would involve a new proliferation of truly draconian controls on trade and capital flows. This course offers governments a splendid time. They could manage exchange-rate movements, deploy monetary and fiscal policy without inhibition, and tackle the resulting bursts of inflation with prices and incomes polices. It is a growth-crippling prospect.

Pencil in the phoenix for around 2018, and welcome it when it comes."

And now, as RT reports, the founder of the world's second biggest cryptocurrency Ethereum, Vitalik Buterin, has questioned whether the Rothschild conspiracy theory extends to digital money.

“Are 'the Rothschilds' even well-coordinated enough to be worth caring about as a group these days?” Buterin asked on Reddit.

Buterin raised the issue as cryptocurrency enthusiasts are discussing the opaque IMMO blockchain project the banking dynasty is reportedly investing in.

Reports about IMMO first surfaced in the local cryptocurrency industry press last week. While all information is based on rumors and leaked information, the crypto-society has said it can be a digital token backed by natural resources like gold or somehow related to real estate.

The project is reported to be watched personally by Alexandre de Rothschild, the newly-appointed head of the family’s banking dynasty.

After fielding responses from Reddit users about the knock-on effect for sentiment regarding cryptocurrency should the rumors be true, Buterin, however, remained unconvinced of the Rothschild dynasty’s providence.

“[M]y updated view after seeing the replies is that they are just people born into various old-money-type high-society positions, and the theories that they are anything beyond that are fairly baseless,” he added in a later edition of his original post.

Will we ever really know?

> Are 'the Rothschilds' even well-coordinated

Yes, Trump was bailed out by Wilbur Ross who worked for Rothschild Inc.

In exchange, Trump named Wilbur Ross as Commerce Secretary.

Hillary also once asked Lynn de Rothschild, "Let me know what penance I owe you".

Basically Trump and Hillary are both pwned.

How oh how will we make cryptos unhackable?? We will need bioverification!  Want to cash in and use your cryptos?  Oh, well, you have to get the bioverification chip!  Sure the biochip can track you and alter your moods and maybe implant the occasional thought, but it is unhackable and allows you access to your cryptos!

Do the Rothschilds do everything themselves?  No, of course not.   They just position themselves at the top of the pyramid.  They control 10 lieutenants, who control 10 underlings, who give orders to the heads of Central Banks, and Prime Ministers, and Wall St executives, and MSM execs...

They're in control of the pretend money we use now

-------

Bravo.

And just as before when money changed from paper and coin to mostly electronic digits, credit, debit, direct depisits and ACH transfers, money is once again transforming. 

And they same people are crying foul over it. Yet, society is now using that electronic system of credit, debit, direct deposits and ACH.

Exactly. Vitalik is missing the forest for the trees.

“[M]y updated view after seeing the replies is that they are just people born into various old-money-type high-society positions, and the theories that they are anything beyond that are fairly baseless,”

you don't even know. You don't realize that the multi-billion dollar logistics you just waltzed in are something altogether different when old-money high-society type people are born into a centuries-old tradition of power management. You have no idea of the power deployed through a terrible variety of means.

Agree

But bear in mind that the Rothschilds are simply the front, the tip of the spear, the bankers for the true elite

They have money; but in the world of global control, money may take a back seat to power & to Intelligence & to history

There are idiot bloodlines that may well extend back to the original Roman republic; dozens of family fortunes now closely entangled with ancient European royalty

These trash, these rent-seekers pull the strings from within enclaves in Europe & elsewhere

For Man to live, the idiot bloodlines must die

To die, they must first be exposed

From the Once & Future Republic~

Let's not lose focus. The War on Terror will not end until:

1) Rothschild is ended.

2) Rothschild's private fiefdom Israel is ended.

3) Rothschild's Central Banking Cartel and the BIS are ended.

After that we can end other bloodlines - Bush, Clinton, Soros, Warburg,...

“The Rothschilds” are so massively irrelevant in todays financial markets that this continued conspiracy theory is laughable. Like the Rockefellers, the wealth amassed by the original family has been so dissipated throughthe THOUSANDS of descendants they no longer even have anyone on the rich list, save maybe one who even has holdings of $1 billion. Theyown some fine wine properties, and are unquestionably rich, but hardly in any position to control the global banking system, or even Bitcoin.

The Safra family, for example, is far wealthier than the Rothschilds today, but similarly as they reproduce, the wealth gets diluted.

The chief Rothschild bank has about $450-500 million in annual revenues, which makes it a mid-tier merchant bank.

I know the Rothschild cousins would LOVE it if these theories about their wealth and power were true, but, alas they are a anti Semite fantasy.

Bill Gates, any one of the Walton kids, Jeff Bezos, Buffet, Carlos Slim - ANY of the NOT JEWISH richest could buy and sell the entire Rothschild family ten times over before lunch and not even notice.

Many of the Rothschild men have married non-Jews, so the current generation is barely even genetically Jewish any more. Life’s a bitch.

Merchant banks?   What about their control of CENTRAL banks?  Forbes, The Economist, Reuters, all are, or were, owned by them.  And if they sold them, it was strictly under conditions to not discuss the Rothschild 'control grid'. 

JP Morgan was their front man, as were the Rockefellers.  As are numerous of the (((Russian))) oligarchs.  Like Khodorkovsky was famously revealed to be, upon his arrest.

They own an entire country, by the name of Israel, not sure if you have heard about it.   But if you wanted to hide your wealth, how would you do it???  Using front men, control of central banks, and control of entire 'sovereign' nations?

The Rothschilds financed the gold dredges in the Yukon. Those dredges operated until the 60's and pulled out untold riches of gold out of the ground. So I would say that While they maybe suffered during the war they still were laughing all the way to the vault with their gold from Canada.

What's hilarious about the 'lesters' of the world, whose only argument is to frame the entire crypto space as:

 

- fiat

-ponzi

 

Is that their alternative (for not participating), is the biggest fiat/ponzi that the planet has ever seen, and is squarely in the hands of the fewest (((families))) that the world has ever seen.
