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

in Project HOPE4 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"


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.
