why do the you know whenever you're in london like we were for too many years what they always say is oh we love our royal family they bring in so much money because people tourists come to look at them so you're saying like why don't we start to make money off them like all these tacky hotels we could put those thousands and thousands of gifts that the president receives they're not allowed to personally keep it it's a product you know basically the taxpayer owns it but where is the. basement somewhere at the white house where you just put them in all these luxury condo right you. know a little low in the hotels replicas you can buy in the lobby and you know they have a fire recently in trump tower you can recreate the fire in properties all around the world to properties and call like a re not going to the american revolution so i know we're going to burn down the room parts are going to cause an insurrection let's set it on fire it could all be preprogramed to just be like a disney about disneyland where the fire of burst out on flight of four thirty nine a new cause just part of your package of staying out the white house but in order
for the american people to buy into this and they want the debt to be paid down in their taxes not to rise as you could put it over the head as you enter each building in the lobby you can have that american debt clock and then he also has a donation box like in the churches where i'd like to help fix up this building help pay down our national debt and have all those like junk presents that were given to the president oh absolutely or when you walk through the portals of the hotel it puts you further into debt anyway we got to take a break right after those don't go well. i've been saying the numbers. this matter to us is over one trillion dollars and. more than term going over. there. will be will you long for the old bridge eight point six percent. markets saw thirty percent of his finest year some
with the under the five hundred three first struck at first and decline rose to twenty thousand dollars. china's building two point one billion dollars a i industrial park but don't let the numbers overwhelm. the only numbers you need to remember is one one just shows you can't afford to miss the one and only seen but. you never know what's around the corner never know what's in the pub even to walk into a nice fat excitement is that not knowing that's where the adrenaline in much comes from. and you can use a move by definition an extreme so will support. the violence is a part and it's that almost a schizophrenia gang culture where you can do all these things and behave badly.
they're going to befall a whole disqualified all for the loss of focus on the last. punishment and infirmed their role and get on for less than the start. of a broader when the fire broke out really did a poll down down went up a little bit. of meaning in these images that beast if you don't win the involves it's constantly evolving and. welcome back to the kaiser part imax kaiser to speak with heart sonny. i owe him our cash welcome thank you so much for having us on is a huge fat zero s.
rat's ass ticket we are seeing is at conferences around the world because you've got something that is in high demand hotshot dot tell us about it as a whole show itself means security in japanese and we were looking for a short word that nailed exactly what our focus was which is cybersecurity within the block chain space and we felt like we hadn't seen anyone in the industry be laser focused on just block chain security especially one that's not doing their own i c.e.o. of course people when they are blocked and they are bitcoin one of the first things they hear about is that it's so secure it's also about that i mean what are people missing or what the add to the to the equation so code that's written on a block is referred to as business logic and business logic is very far from being secure and traditionally in the technology era whenever sophisticated code is written you always get a third party to audit it and the exact same methodology is now being implemented
in the block chain space that if you're writing code you need to have at least one professional third party who are technical audit of that code and then make sure that there's no hidden functionalities that you're not clogging up the block chain by potentially using too much gas and that the actual written words of the source of truth are actually married to the business logic is the code doing what the words say they're supposed to do a lot of money has been pouring into the crypto and blocked chain and when this money comes in ideally they do an audit of the technology is there enough technology auditing going on with all this money my question is is there more money out there now chasing projects that there are. is adequate amount of auditing yet there's not enough sophisticated auditing firms out there to handle all of the work in this space and we're seeing the asian crypto markets boil and become extremely exciting and they're seeing millions of dollars fund raised in a much faster speed of time in asia but none of them are valuing security the
lowest numbers of security audits being done are by far in asia and for an investor to cut a check into a project and not make sure that this mark on checks been audited at least once and to review the actual audit report i think it's bizarre and there is not enough firms willing to even audit non if you're ian based projects so the theory i'm has been the main protocol in which most i.c.'s have been launched on their launching what's called an r.c. twenty token on top of the protocol and that's been the majority of i.c.a.o. is to date now we're starting to see people start to develop smart contracts on the newer protocols that are coming we see some interest in stellar neo and soon maybe e.o.'s but the current firms like consensus that have been doing smart contract auditing seem to be much more laser focused on just a theory and you know people when they hear the word auditing they think about auditing firms like price waterhouse cooper and these big auditing firms so is
whole show dot i know are you kind of a p w c block chain is that how you position yourself correct yeah we're looking to evolve and to becoming the do a lawyer or mckinsey or see if you will of this space right and how long is a company been around in a little less than a year ok so this is a start up start first year start up and what's the headcount we're at twenty four full time in las vegas and about eleven contractors we are hiring rapidly about thirty more people on boarding looking open up our first office outside of the u.s. hopefully looking to as you do. global business realize time zones now matter a lot and so when i've been in europe i've been realizing well europe is pretty interesting to do business in both asia and north america and so we're exploring where to go we're growing steadily month over month definitely a start up pace murdering the white combinator time paul graham used to say that
during y. combinator a startup grows an average seven percent week over week we can right around there actually as a tech start up growing at a rapid pace week over week ever since we started how many startups i've been involved with technically three i founded one before this is a this is called zaldy dot com we did mobile point of sale and integrating to legacy pos systems and implementing and if the payments and chip credit card payments and before that we were building a white labeled android app store for picks so let's talk about smart contracts just to connor real back for a second cars people talk about smart contracts you build them on a watch and excited about now is there a way to actually author this mark on track the way we operate a smart contract is you need to engineer who has a unique background the background has to be a security background a q.a. mind full stock engineer that's keeping up with solidity and solidity is the language of the theory and the protocol is built on it's a new language that very few engineers in the world are very well versed in it is
updating as a language on a weekly basis and so when we're doing a smart contract audit you need this engineer with a unique background to marry the code to the words to do a gas analysis to do a static analysis and to do a dynamic analysis such as you know you're talking about more money in this space than there is operating more money entering this space than there is engineering talent correct at what point does the industry start to level off in terms of the various under long underlying dynamic components if you will start to come into more of a balance if it will that ever happen i guess as a precedent it like. back to the dot com era or some other high growth areas but if that question kind of makes sense doesn't make sense what's your thought on that i think that a lot of dust has to settle in this industry in order for more sophisticated capital to come play active ball in the space and the biggest issue is
a lack of security and a lack of education when it comes to hiring new engineers and what's needed most in this industry isn't it is more academies to train high level engineering talent ourselves at hoshi we're building an in-house academy because the only way we're going to stack up our engineering team is by finding full stack engineers that we can train to become qualified auditors. if you're a qualified engineer today chances are you're building your own solution or you're being paid a ridiculous amount per month to work for some i.c.a.o. . and that's just the reality of it when you're offered eight hundred to therion for the month of my c.e.o. you're going to jump ship from whatever you are and go ongoing joke in the industry as if you're really qualified engineer in this space you might be too rich to get out of bed. yeah exactly i mean that's a real problem there at the top talent is is become fabulously wealthy and they're not really motivated to get their hands dirty correct yet so you've got to
grow talent from the grassroots and this is a brand new industry where even if you're hiring someone on the block chain side of things maybe they were an early employee at linked in and they've built out a big team of thirty people for but they haven't spent the time to read the bitcoin block chain white paper haven't heard the toshiba's white paper where it all started and i feel like most of the times people who are very experienced in business don't understand block chain one on one and that's also a big problem with hiring this is a true for anyone in this industry i'm sure they're all facing it that you found someone who can be a v.p. of marketing you know sales force or she know sales force and par dot. but they know nothing about block chain one hundred one and how to operate in this space what's the what's trust decentralisation really mean people bring their assumptions and their experience and they hear a few things and then they just kind of poured over what they know and they think they know stuff so what is like with the one thing that
a newcomer even experience as a technologist ms missing about the block chain is if you will that the core belief system was that one day on a special sauce if you will that they're missing i don't think it's special sauce i think it's reading the bitcoin. read it understand it and if you don't start watching some videos from under it's antonopoulos. ses i think there are a little more of the saying i phone example is material easier to digest he invented the word smart contract the phrase and it's remarkable that people don't even know that now looking out to twenty eighteen twenty nineteen what are your thoughts on bitcoins emerging second layer like lightning networks. and how's that going well i mean we've been waiting for her a really long time for elizabeth and the lightning network team to give us a viable solution but we've all been very excited about side chains being the answer and site chains being the answer to us being able to go up against visa and
master card in the space because it's not going to happen on the the corbett going to block chain right so it's got to go off change yes it's a handle that volume and it gets back to you know the debate of twenty seventeen was really this debate about store of value versus means of exchange and the means of exchange was opened up competing blocks chains and talking about house to toasties vision is all about digital cash and that the store value argument is not really just be placed in the center of the discussion but it looks as though that store value argument kind of won out to some degree in twenty seventeen and. now or in twenty eighteen and it seems like the argument of the day is going to be proof of work vs proof of steak ok so explain the difference and then your view on the proof of work is not sacrificing security. as much as proof of steak
is that proof of steak is a great step towards leveraging less electricity and it's way more earth friendly but is it the right step for security. i would personally say in my personal opinion no first book proof of steak takes a step in the wrong direction for security at least right now it's sacrificing security in order to save electricity which of bring us right back to proof of work . the dust hasn't settled so therefore economic us all way back to back out again because it's the longest stay got the longest track record it's got. on on interrupted up down up time right and so do you see anything where maximalist to say that that's the reality is all we really have to right so as a security professional that's kind of your opinion to the industry folks are asking about that that we're you we're excited for proof of steak but they need to
value security and we need to as a community hash through how security won't be sacrificed so on the environmental issue. seems like a nonstarter in many ways because first of all i mean just off the top of my head i'm thinking like renewable energy and power watch i am in saudi arabia going to be one hundred percent renewables they've got a ray of solar panels that are the biggest in the world iceland is all geothermal energy the technology for photoelectric cells is going that ace of particular down to zero cost right so heading into renewables anyway and so why is this even an issue security is usually just someone. i don't think the issue is finding a way to have renewable energy be produced whether it's nuclear whether it's solar i think that's not the issue the issue is just being able to hash through how can security be then the utmost priority in order that so security is not sacrificed in an effort to make things proof of state versus proof where i get that but it just
seems that the common theme you hear from. a call to say paul krugman from the new york times hill hit on this it eased up a lot of energy issues and it just seems like a it's a nonstarter and doesn't matter right now it's ok if you still owe actress that you're right at this point there's a lot of things that you can lower tricity and honestly we don't even know if like the u.s. dollar she has sole goal though she is dubbed iowa is the name of the company this is how sonny is c.e.o. and founder i'm co-founder and president my co-founders yo kwan yo kwan his previous company was coined setter they found an exchange at a new york they sold coins that had to crack in and after that he launched launched where they got rid of passwords using multifactor authentication they sold launched a dietician lives and then you and i partnered up to start osho and to be laser focused on walks and security perfect thanks may have gotten so much max already but she had it all right well that's going to do it for this edition of the kaiser
report with may max kaiser and stationer well i think our guest saw me a whole show i owe generated on twitter this kaiser report and i saw. this when you factor in sentenced to public will. when the really close is protect themselves. with the flaming. lips and be the. we can all middle of the room stick. to the real news.
special position for western countries makes it possible for all opposition groups to use the chemical weapon to pretend that this is the fault of human governments because in this situation like today. western countries. do not sweep for any investigation. aside the for the responsibility and the body should. die and is getting international recognition with the help of israel at least in the world of zoos remember wolf it was dismissive to do it long before your committee this is my compass of years ago in our local study hall maybe. there is no charge. over there should be only palestinians who gets the most help from its
jerusalem counterparts i don't think there's some of those who in the world under the oak vision did not only could give us. and the earth is all of your knowledge the heart of this lady of the muscle that you had i know if you continue muslims you know do more commitments last don't piss off. a. camel is one of the most controversial products of our time it's a sobering vegetable fact firth's very true. twenty seven to the production grew to sixty three million. it sounds that rapid growth in international demand for cheap oil has led to the massive expansion of plantations which it means the destruction of rain forest. get into these you know a lot more than ten million hiked as of unique rain forest has been destroyed and
it's a process that just keeps going. lucian founded u.s. house intelligence committee clears donald trump of allegations that his presidential campaign was working with russia. continues to fuel those allegations those a new interview by the russian lawyer who met with campaign officials back in twenty sixteen she admits to being a russian government informant we look at the revelations to see if there's anything new also to come in the city from looters struggles with the horrific consequences of chemicals and radioactive materials used by the u.s. and its allies fifteen years after the iraq war started. and while the new u.s. secretary of state might pompei of says nato ally germany is not spending enough on defense early and seems to be changing as it resents new military hardware it's not
just the professionals that get to sort through the year using this tactical simulator of a helicopter i can even fly your mission over this small german town albeit rather a bumpy ride with me in charge. there are six pm here in moscow you're watching r.t. international now our top story this hour no collusion that's the verdict of the u.s. house intelligence committee which found no evidence donald trump's twenty sixteen presidential campaign had been working with russia however the democrats still refuse to endorse the findings and of to continue the probe with more now on the report his. if you've heard it once you've heard of a thousand times but here it is once more for those of you in the cheap seats the
russian active measures campaign against the united states was multi-faceted they leverage cyber attacks covert platforms social media third party intermediaries in state run media the house intelligence report begins with a novel idea the american people rightly want to know what the russians did and how and well each section starts off with accusations of what the kremlin did where the evidence is meant to be there is just a bunch of blacked out text nevertheless the committee concludes that russia's goal was to sow discord in america and cast doubt on the democratic process that's apparently with point zero zero zero two percent of u.s. election related advertising on google and with an equally huge amount of ads on facebook twenty five percent of which were never seen by anyone that's in the report still the aim was apparently achieved and is the sole reason for the expanse of divide that has grown in america since the election approaches active measures campaign achieved its primary goal of inciting division in discord among americans
for more than a year us politics have been consumed by busy recriminations charges and countercharges about the attacks it's wholly unclear how russia's alleged actions are responsible for the political chaos that has ensued since trump took the white house it wasn't russia reporting that terms former campaign manager has connections to ukraine spelled out collusion one of the many theories that the report shoots down the charges against paul the for president tom's former come pain manager or sieved more than seventeen million dollars in secret payments from a kremlin link to political party in ukraine but it was the american media that hypothesize that trump jr is meeting with a russian lawyer proved moscow was supporting trump donald trump son think he was about to get help from a russian lawyer with ties to the kremlin this is looking more and more like treason all these strange behavior from the president it's all explains now a stream of lee. by the intelligence community condemned by the report as damaging national security wasn't orchestrated by the kremlin they were also learning from
your sources that intelligence officials they denied n.b.c. news is learning from intelligence sources u.s. intelligence sources tell c.b.s. news or even taken by. half of team trump was accused of meeting with him and that threaten their jobs but the report says there was nothing sinister there also there the controversial russian ambassador sergei look of course of the pictures in the course is shameful picture where the united states press corps was kept out by the russians were there is an open question whether there was collusion cooperation between trump associates during the campaign and russian officials all of that discord was home grown so after a year of searching that included seventy three interviews nine hearings and briefings and the review of countless documents were left with the conclusion of no collusion and as much proof as we had before the report was released meaning little to none checking think of reporting no talk of russian meddling almost always involves a mention of this channel to you is a so-called to kremlin influence and this time the apparent reason is
a growth in artie's popularity according to the report moscow uses google and it services to spread propaganda via r.t. accounts and notes that i see is reach two million subscribers on you tube the law makers the rule so disturbed by the fact that r.t. is taken in the same manner as quote the news sources media and this line all things that congress is mistaking in and an alternative point of view for interference the only thing that we can maybe point to is that these people called the russians russian government russian actors people with russian names i don't know but these people that we will collectively call their russia. put out a tweet facebook stories that did not encourage armed revolt by the american citizens i want to think it merely presented allegedly the point zero zero to whatever percent of this but presented stories that other american
actors and politicians in folkson and activists were alleging as well so it just so happened that this horrible russian exile bill of dissent or whatever was a story discord happened to me are exactly the same thoughts and sentiments of actual americans who may have had a different opinion from hillary clinton it's the only story in town and the american public has been so had better waited to this mean that they want to hear more of it they believe there is evidence when there is no evidence oh no no i'm sorry to say this isn't stopping i hope it does but i'm afraid it will and that seems to be the case too because right after the report was published a new media frenzy to code a russian lawyer who calls to stood over her meeting with the campaign officials back in twenty sixteen is making the headlines again mainstream media claim she's confessed to having connections with the kremlin. the russian lawyer who promised
dirt on clinton to the campaign worked with latimer putin's kremlin this is natalia vessel that sky as she was twenty sixteen meeting at trump tower acknowledging that she's a lawyer but that she's also an informant listen to what she's telling us now about her ties to the chief prosecutor of russia in front of mark that i. have not got them. even in front of this story of course they were back to twenty sixteen as we heard in that meeting between verse and it's going in trump tower between her and trump jr paul modify and jarrad that story subsequently hit the headlines in summer of last year much media reports are on the story as a smoking gun all rather one of the battery of smoking guns here in that russia collusion probe now. is a top attorney she's worked for the prosecutor's office before something which she's admitted in congress that's the million other interviews as well and she has stated before links or rather her contact with the top prosecutor general and
russia with government agencies in a professional capacity as a lawyer this for example is one piece she gave to the wall street journal last year i now the general prosecutor personally in the course of my investigation i shared information with him now as we say diverse in this case has worked for the prosecutor's office she's represented clients from various countries nationalities interest groups both. perhaps russian government linked groups as well as private clients who have fought the russian government in financial and criminal cases now she gave an interview to us also quite a few months ago in which she stated that her visit to the united states her meeting was in a capacity as a private citizen as a lawyer and in no capacity as a representative of the kremlin in any way shape or form this is what she had to tell us then is that i had to have that meeting as part of my job as a lawyer citizen in the us it had nothing to do with politics it didn't have
anything to do with russia. i think it's beyond a doubt here that person is. very well connected and she has come into professional contact it's fair to say with russian top prosecutors with russian government bodies as she has in her role as you know as an attorney for the prosecutor's office at the beginning of her career the way this has been presented was she some sort of representative. coming on behalf of the kremlin to lobby to influence some of the election certainly that narrative has come under question of course the other question is why this is coming now this comes out after that report what congress denying any links between collusion was between trump and the russian government it's interesting to see now what impact this will have on investigation and hawkins with the details there will and russia are expert martin mccauley just think there is nothing special in the so-called revelations that a lawyer sometimes works the prosecutor's office this. the tell you
bill it is very criminal agent doesn't stand up because as a lawyer she can give advice to the prosecutor general's office. members of the prosecutor general's office as a lawyer that's quite legal nothing there's nothing illegal about it and you can go to the united states and represent a client it's just another meeting and tribune you met her. and he said it only lasted twenty minutes they didn't speak about very much if the opposition of. them can find evidence that they were conspiring together they were trying trying to undermine hillary clinton so it's up to them to do that but on the face of it just no duty. would have to prove that it had other. rover objectives in the meeting and they find it very very difficult. to prove.
