Don Tapscott – Blockchain Revolution

Pleasure to’ve met Don Tapscott who shared some great insights on the Blockchain and I’ve already gotten hold of his book Blockchain Revolution — his must read book #TEDSummit

After the workshop with some great insights from all three TED speakers — some issues still remain — maybe after I get done reading this book and a number of articles I’ve been referred to by the TED speakers — I might have a more comprehensive position to share – for now I’m still 50-50 a great technology but it is still is a longways away from being the ultimate


POST EDIT – AFTER READING THE BOOK
August 9th 2016
Have enjoyed reading Don Tapscott’s book on the Blockchain Revolution — Its an amazing concept and has tremendous potential.  The idea is in its stage of infancy but sky is the limit – akin to being in 1995 of the computer / Internet revolution and then as they say it’s all historyQuestion remains, how can each industry or person customise the Blockchain concept for his / her own arena. FYI keep in mind Bitcoin is “an implementation” of the Blockchain – the fundamental basis is the Blockchain

Thanks to Faisal Khan for being my sounding board

Smuggling of Foreign Exchange Legalized by Nawaz Sharif in 1992

The bread crumbs of flight of money from Pakistan – aka Tax evasion starts from 1992 – during the 1st premiership of Nawaz Sharif. The act passed on 28th July 1992 – stipulates

4. FREEDOM TO BRING, HOLD, SELL AND TAKE OUT FOREIGN CURRENCY:-- All citizens of Pakistan resident in Pakistan or outside Pakistan and all other persons shall be entitled and free to bring, hold, sell, transfer and take out foreign exchange within or out of Pakistan in any form and shall not be required to make a foreign currency declaration at any stage nor shall any one be questioned in regard to the same. (ref link)

No wonder Ayan Ali was mistakenly caught red handed (or not) walking away with $500,000, and is pleading innocent and shall walk away free as a bird

How perfectly scripted – merely by adding only two words — “take out” — in this law it legitmizes the flight of capital from Pakistan to many offshore locations without paying a dime of tax. All scripted / camouflaged under the garb of “for the economic benefit of Pakistan” – confidence building measures to encourage free trade around the world — yeah right

There is NO DOUBT that all mentioned in the Panama Papers in Pakistan need to come clean on if these offshore accounts are legit or ill legal – it starts from them showing the source of the wealth and if the taxes have been paid for the specified income, as the PML media is trying to portray other individuals also being in the list – that does not in anyway absolve the responsibility of the Head of State to come clean on this and show his innocence as and where possible.

Cricket Pitch Curation at Kolkata in Pakistan vs India T20 Match

Shoaib Malik almost says what he wanted to say “it’s not the curators fault — he can’t control the weather ”

But last two matches the ball was coming up and good, for seam, At the toss pundits were saying win the toss and bat first – but dhoni to the surprise of many opts to bowl first

While India plays spinners

It’s a match let’s play it, but historically ground curators have tweaked their pitches ever so gently to favor their own team ;) #PAKvsIND – shared by Awab Alvi on Facebook
