And MAID was listed on Cryptopia? It will cost 160 MAID to transfer out of Poloniex. 80 MAID to try a small amount, 80 for the remainder. Ouch.

If, oops, i meant when maid goes back up in dollar value, i feel pretty sure that the withdrawl fee will get lowered.
80 maid does seem ridiculous though.

Or try anti-surveillance makeup?

“Dreamed up by artist Adam Harvey back in 2010, the project explores how rich pigments painted in Cubist-like shapes on key facial features can prevent sophisticated facial-recognition algorithms from accessing your biometric profile. The concept was inspired by British marine painter Norman Wilkin’s dazzle camouflage technique, in which military ships were cast in dizzying stripes during World War I to warp the enemy’s perception of their type, size, and the speed at which they were traveling.”

Good article. Not a new theme but this needs repeating, endlessly, on a daily basis if necessary. And this guy does it well.

‘Lawful access’ [to communications by law enforcement] is the same bad idea that people knowledgeable about network and computer security have been attempting to stop for more than two decades. The desire for this access keeps coming back, because it sounds so reasonable on its surface…
