Global CryptoCurrency, Encryption and Mass Audience Live Streaming
What does it mean for keeping kids safe from predators?
The past few weeks have brought together a glimpse of the future if we are willing to pay attention. Lost in all the chaos of Washington politics and Middle East violence is a trend that will affect each and every one of us for the rest of our lives, especially our young people.
This week the U.S. House Finance Committee, led by Maxine Waters, grilled Mark Zuckerberg about how Facebook et al will use encryption and their new Libra which is a global cryptocurrency tied to social media. It is currently looking like Facebook might back off the introduction of Libra on the same day that China’s Parliament has passed a law enabling cryptography to pave the way for the People’s Republic of China’s new bank backed global digital currency. Facebook’s Libra currency is based on block chain technology and designed to handle 1000 transactions per second. China’s cryptocurrency is centrally managed by China’s Central Bank and is designed to handle 300,000 transactions a second.
As Million Kids has reported recently all of this is happening while our kids are entering a whole new era of communications which we call “Mass Audience Live-Streaming.” Apps like Tik Tok, Likee, Live.me and soon Lasso make it possible for our youth to make a 15 second video that goes out to millions and any one of those individuals viewing the video can send a text to the maker of the video. It has truly become a world without borders for our kids.
In the near future our kids will be able to talk with millions of strangers and the messaging will be encrypted. Soon global cryptocurrency will be tied to every app out there and that means that our kids will be able to make selfies and sell them to make a little spare change. It is INDEED A FAST-CHANGING WORLD and we need to sit up and pay attention!
