The Dash instamine and why it doesn’t matter

When a digital currency is mined before it’s released to the public, that may be a symptom of a scam – but it doesn’t prove without a doubt that it’s a scam. It may be an indicator that the creators just intend to boost up the value of the currency a little, sell their holdings, and leave. However, if we find that the creators continue to work on the coin long after any get-rich-quick scheme should have expired, is it still reasonable to say that the coin is a scam?


A message of peace – Kurt Robinson Raps

Kurt delivers a divine discourse through acappella rhyme, conveying to the audience that they are powerful, reminding them of their essence.



You might have seen me burn a stage, ruptured with earthquakes
But you never saw when I put first feather to first page
Thousands of hours going unshowered fighting with a pen
Writing, rewriting, editing, and writing again

Creating complex metaphors with such force
Well-articulated thoughts given physical form
Imbibing forgotten mystical shamanic medicines
Performing sacred rituals to show the proper reverence

I spent time analysing logical and philosophical premises
How to develop prosperity, how to avoid pestilence

Studying holy texts that are so complex
They made my brain flip my solar plexus and soul flex
Alongside entrepreneurial biographies to get a clear view
Of how to integrate the spiritual and the material

So when you hear me spit it’s not just any rhymes
It’s a perspective of a man who has lived many lives
Who has dug deep into the spirit to autodidactically verify
Peeled back layers of onions to find what it said inside

I’ve jotted mountains of lyrics of found-within-ness
That condense the epiphanies of powerful visions
It takes a scholar to make the division between my witticisms
My pseudo-intellectualism and my wisdom

In past lives I ate fools whole and chewed bones
Barefoot face of the sun, walked through snow
Killed men and raised dead for a cool show
Wrapped space around time in a cute bow

I outlived universes’ entropy till it grew cold
Waited through the heat death till they anew growed
All the skills from my past selves, all of my cast spells
But nothing compares to the power to move a human soul

God’s fingers touched my lips so let me speak
For I come from beyond time with a message of peace
These things I know heaven is high, hell is deep
And nothing will fill your heart like service to your fellow being

So what lies within your heart tell me please
Tell me what you hide inside that’s seldom seen
Suffering makes you live, you bled, you breathe
Embrace your divine nature and set yourself free

You’ve been blessed with will and pure intellect
A chance to love yourself or ignore and neglect
The need to decide your own meaning of life
Within your forty more breaths divorced from death

You can be Me easily reborn in the flesh
With an earth with soil so well-formed and fresh
So I humbly present you a choice with all respect
These are yours to wreck or yours to protect

You were born with a divine melody, a holy tune
Singing the sweetest song a soul consumes
Look into the eyes of a child and you’ll know it’s true
Your earthly brethren have such high hopes for you

Life can be like a hall of mirrors
We get obsessed with the surface like a sort of sickness
Take a look – what’s behind all those visions
Pure space, the space to transform into brilliance

All those millions of possibilities the universe spins through
You came from nothing, so you’ve got no more to lose
Everything that’s within me is within you
So please stand up, and do what you were born to do

Kurt Robinson Raps “False Flag” at Anarchapulco 2017

This is a track about how large governments like to threaten, scare and even murder the people they are supposed to represent, in order to achieve political, military or imperial goals. The video is from my performance at Anarchapulco 2017. If the audio isn’t clear enough, you can also listen to this version I recorded in my bedroom years ago.

Thanks Again to Doug Scribner, Ryan Herbison, Dan Dicks of Press For Truth, Nathan Freeman, and everyone who made this event possible.


if you want people to accept anything
first they’ve got to believe it’s for their benefit
if you can scare them, strike fear in their hearts
then you can start cutting their freedoms apart

they’re lonely, afraid, need leadership
show them you’ll be shepherd to their sheep again
give them the motivation which they surely lack
show them they need you with a false flag

nero wanted to rebuild Rome in his image
and turn the populace against the Christians
he took a torch to realise his fiery vision
playing the lyre for anyone who would listen

1915, Lusitania cruised the Irish Sea
100 Americans on her, loose & free
Germany warned, we know you have ammo on board
US ignored, it got torpedoed and torn

Times said Germany took the day off to applaud
perfect excuse to enter the First World War

1933 february
Nazis built a fire at parliament’s feet
hitler issued a decree, saying we’re under attack
that was his version of the PATRIOT act

six years later, Gleiwitz radio station
Himmler’s operation, set up the Polish invasion
SS troops in Polish uniforms, stormed the building
Found the Polish sympathiser and killed him

Broadcast some hate speech in their supposed language
Left the body as evidence for the cameras

40, mccollum wrote a memo, strategies and all
on how to lead Japan to an overt act of war
FDR fired the admiral wanting to leave Hawai’i
He knew if they stayed they did it suicidally
Then the Japs attacked at Pearl Harbour
Sending the boys home with caps on their caskets
doing exactly what it was sure to do
that’s how the US got into World War Deuce

Now 9/11 might have been a fine deception
you have an opinion what happened, i won’t question
the next day they passed the Act, hardly had to write it down
500 pages, they just had it lying around

if you want people to accept anything
first they’ve got to believe it’s for their benefit
if you can scare them, strike fear in their hearts
then you can start cutting their freedoms apart

they’re lonely, afraid, need leadership
show them you’ll be shepherd to their sheep again
give them the motivation which they surely lack
show them they need you with a false flag

Kurt Robinson Raps – “Free” Verse

freedom of movement and a free life
free love & compassion can free minds
free thinking your thoughts can be free
free association and freedom of speech

free to be emotional free to be calm
the right to self defence free to bear arms
while the kids demand a free education
shit ain’t free, you must be freebasin

i know you heard this one it’s some deep stuff
there ain’t no such thing as a free lunch
free mp3s downloaded we handle
i’ll steal the beat for this track a free sample

monogamy polyamory and free lovin
live your whole life think you’re in a free country
constitutional republic as long as it lasted
abolish gov. for a strong free market

wander through the hotel get free wifi
free your imagination through your mind’s eye
make freedom so common it seems boring
i forgot my clean underwear i’m freeballin

none of those phony laws you should believe in
victimless crime spree derrick j freeman
drug dealin free enterprise you can be the boss
and that reminds me man – free ross!

Bitcoin vs Dash – Security & Bitcoin as blue chip

An interesting argument people make for the long-term viability of Bitcoin is this: It’s fine to use Dash for fast transactions and private transactions, buying cups of coffee or whatever… but for big transactions people don’t need fast confirmations, and so they will probably continue to use Bitcoin for certain large, cryptocurrency clearing-house transactions. My question is always, okay, they don’t need fast confirmations, but they don’t really gain anything by having slow confirmations. So why are people going to continue to use Bitcoin?

The forthcoming answer is security. It’s true, Bitcoin has been around longer, has had more tests, and so the network is more secure. However, having a secure network resistant to hacking is actually only one part of security. Another part is, how many people have lost thousands or millions of dollars over the years due to negligence or malicious actors? A lot.

If you have to be a tech nerd to secure your Bitcoins, that means it’s actually not secure, and it’s definitely not ready for mass adoption.

The other thing is, if you’re trying to defend Bitcoin compared to Dash, you’re fighting a retreating battle. Sure it does privacy, speed, user experience and adaptation to a changing market better than Bitcoin, but other than that, what does it do? If Dash has the incentives in place to improve in all these areas, then surely it has the potential to improve in security as well. After all, security is one of the most important parts of user experience. If your coins are constantly getting stolen or the network is going down, that gives the worst possible user experience.
