Bank of America Stops Lending to Several Gun Manufacturers, Strengthening Case for Crypto – Dash Force News

Bank of America will cease providing lending services to companies manufacturing certain types of firearms.

As reported by Bloomberg, Bank of America, the second-largest bank in the US, will no longer lend to firearms manufacturers involved in selling semi-automatic rifles deemed “military-style” to the civilian populace. This comes after a wave of pressure on banks and payment providers to restrict their services provided to firearms manufacturers in the wake of recent highly-publicized shootings. Increasing financial pressure could cause manufacturers to cease production of controversial items or risk harm to their business.

Centralized payment systems have a long history of shutting out controversial projects

Payment companies and the banking industry, with centralized control over services, have long posed problems for businesses and causes that have attracted controversy over the years. PayPal froze the accounts of supporters of the Bundy Ranch, an agricultural community in the US which was engaged in a dispute with the federal government resulting in an armed standoff. Wikileaks famously also had all its payment providers shut down due to is exposure of government corruption, prompting them to seek cryptocurrency as a way to get around the ban.

Dash is making strong inroads in censored industries like marijuana and alternative media

As the top cryptocurrency for payments, Dash is focused on offering better and censorship-resistant money, which leads to applications in traditionally under-served industries. Independent journalist Ben Swann came back after a year of censorship thanks to an exclusive sponsorship with Dash. Dash point-of-sale and business solution Alt Thirty Six aims to service the legal cannabis industry, which at present is cash-only due to banking restrictions. Finally, Dash is taking off in Venezuela, which has experienced currency issues and regulatory barriers, with over a hundred businesses accepting it for payments as of time of writing.

The firearms industry would be wise to explore Dash for payments seeing present trends of hostility from banks.

First US Real Estate Transaction In Blockchain Completed: What’s Next? | Zero Hedge

Stories have been circulating about Vermont testing blockchain for recording real estate transactions.

A contact at Propy informs me that the city of South Burlington, Vermont, just became a global blockchain leader by locking in the first US real estate deed completely on blockchain.

In October of 2017, Business Insider reported Propy Announces World’s First Real Estate Purchase on Ethereum Blockchain.

Natalia Karayaneva, CEO of Propy said, “This is only the beginning. With this transaction, we’ve broken first ground in putting the $217 trillion real estate market on the blockchain. We’re starting with Ukraine, but over the coming year we plan to facilitate real estate transactions with the use of PRO tokens in California, Vermont, and Dubai.”

Business Insider posted this disclaimer “Propy is the source of this content.”

I make the same disclaimer.

My contact says “This first deal makes it much easier for the rest of the 49 states to iterate the process. In fact, Arizona and Colorado are next.”

I have some questions and will post an addendum when I have answers.


First, this is not unexpected. I have many times commented that blockchain is perfect for real estate transactions. Real estate is low-volume, high-value. Buying candy bars on blockchain is not practical. Blockchain does not scale.

Second. This does not change my attitude towards cryptos. At some point everything will be crypto, but it will be government-sponsored and it will not be Bitcoin nor Ethereum.

Finally, and most importantly, entire chains of business will vanish.

Think of the business of title insurance. Poof!
