The "Central bankers" (blood suckers) own america... but they are F***ed in china... they cannot come in, it is over.
That is why they are fighting the "Blockchain" technology world wide... it is over for the "Money Changers".
First we need to take out the "paid" politician out of office and put the bankers in Jail for life...
I never made a god damn deal with anybody

Good discussion overall, to-the-point, non-dogmatic, from EU, China and US perspectives. Thumbs up!

Is this the same system of payment that was invented. By Empassa in Keynia
set forth principles of guidance and teaching for economic readjustment.
Regulations were revealed by Him which insure the welfare of the commonwealth.
As the rich man enjoys his life surrounded by ease and luxuries, so the poor
man must likewise have a home and be provided with sustenance and comforts
commensurate with his needs. This readjustment of the social economic is of the
greatest importance inasmuch as it insures the stability of the world of
humanity; and until it is effected, happiness and prosperity are impossible.

The West practise the Worst kind of human behaviour. Whatever Asia and China do is bad and whatever the West do is human rights and democracy while they are responsible for history colonialism and slavery
As an sme in Canada, i'd rather use the Chinese payment model than the parasitic credit card system. Cash payment also cuts into our overhead although not as much. I don't mind bank debit cards however.

Oh, they stole in USA technology. Tunnels were invention of the usa and they did not pay for the Copyright. This is why trump started the Trade War. Making USA great again.
How is this talk from June 2019? You would expect this is from 2016...

Two reasons stop US from improving their payment system to the internet way. One is Credit Card companies and the Banks don't like it, and the other is the reliable network. You can use Alipay or Wechat Pay in a small village of China, but you may lost the network connection in a town of US.
