Now Go and Get Your Money Lil Duffle Bag Boy
Monday January 23, 2017
My first big boy job was at TSYS back in September of 2011. I was still in school as a super senior, but also working practically full time on prepaid card systems. Back during the early prepaid card era, we saw some crazy things…unsurprising though given the amount of people who are “underbanked”, even in the 20 sq. mi radius of the office. As the world turned, I learned the plan of using KYC to create another layer of capital controls on top of prepaid cards. In the name of anti-terrorism of course. In 2013 I could no longer bring myself to care to contribute anything or even collect a paycheck from the company, so I quit.

Due to the nature of the New York Bitlicense, buying Bitcoin can result in physical harm. This war on Bitcoin has resulted in a significantly less cash deals occurring, funneling users en masse to KYC checkpoints. Cash deals now require a significant amount of trust, but allow for extraordinary financial empowerment if due diligence is applied correctly.
Each tier of trapping has different caveats, but similarly aligned strategies. They all aim to preserve anonymity and incentivize recurrent relationships to develop trust. All scenarios require a TRB node to generate addresses with funkenstein’s import/export privkey patch applied.
Coppin Louie Loafers Just to Thug in Em

After talking with mod6 on IRC a lot, he recommended I listen to Young Jeezy, stating, “Jeezy changed my life.” This was back in 2013, so I started listening to some Jeezy, from Trapstar on Thug Motivation 101 (TM101), to the more recent Put On. Inevitably, the words of Jeezy changed my life as well, and the realization of the sheer amount universal street wisdom in his recordings taught me valuable lessons.
Well fast forward to 2014. Jeezy releases the single Holy Ghost which would appear on his album The Autobiography. This single is probably one of the most important Jeezy tracks I’ve ever heard, it talks about the fleeting nature of success, and the tragic sacrifices one must make to achieve greatness.
