RE: VERY CONCERNING NEWS: What does new BAN ON CRYPTO means for Nigerian users?

in Project HOPE3 months ago

I was shocked by the memo too. I mean, many countries are already accepting crypto but here, a ban is being initiated. I just hope the cops will not start coming out to stop-and-search people's phones for crypto transactions. Well, let's see how it goes.
A friend of mine once said "no one can stop revolution"

Sort:  

Like search your computer? They'd have to take your computer. Then it would take immense manpower to go through it efficiently. Just seems unlikely. USA had a similar issue with copyrighted material. Their solution is not a solution. It's more of a mitigation. They

  • scan your internet usage (mostly through DNS). This is easy for a country where the country controls the utilities
  • block websites through the ISP

All of these things can be overcome with VPN or tor network, but that's why it's a mitigation and not a solution

Those memos do make comment section look like a mess @r351574nc3

And it does look super spammy ...

Governments can "scare" people, but that's the only thing they can do.
