I am excited to have Kirk Phillips on this episode, he has been a long time supporter of The Tatiana Show and has helped me personally with my taxes. On this episode he joins us to speak about what you can do when you are getting SIM card attacked! He has been a victim himself and will tell us his experience and advise us on how to increase our security and how to step up our digital identity game.

Here are some ways to protect yourself:

The 7 Secret Weapons from Crushing a SIM Card Attack

Kirk’s Double SIM Card Attack Story

#1 on 1-18-19 and #2 on 1-26-19

First things first: Where are the enemies?

Three Main Enemies/Attackers

a) Yourself: In crypto you are your own worst enemy
b) The External Enemy (The Hackers)
c) The Enemy Within (The most dastardly of ALL)
1) “The Golden Thread Principle” Bifurcate your emails:

Communications email
Username email
Never the same for both
2) Password Manager: LAST PASS (A digital vault for all your sites and platforms)

3) Encrypted email service: PROTONMAIL

Jurisdictional power
Self owned and operated servers (no AWS-3rd party servers)
4) Email Aliases for Obfuscation

Special single use username emails
Examples: the protonmail login (creation email), icloud, ATT ie phone account, Last Pass, Mega-Dropbox etc., recovery emails
5) Cold storage is for more than private keys

2FA backup code
Anything else that has a back up codes
One time back up codes
Last Pass ie password manager emails and passwords
Protonmail main email and password
6) Bifurcate your phone numbers (same as golden rule above but for mobile numbers)

Communications mobile phone
2FA mobile phone
Google voice to obfuscate your communications # if you can only have one phone
Google Fi or pre-paid burner phone
7) Business vs. Personal: Add more obfuscation by creating business accounts

Biz identity points: Biz name, State of formation (WY privacy state), phone number and physical address
Create a mobile carrier account in business name
About the Guests:

Kirk Phillips, aka the TheBitcoinCPA, is an entrepreneur, Certified Public Accountant (CPA) and a self-taught woodworker therefore an artist of sorts in all areas of life. He brings the same attention to detail necessary for creating finely crafted furniture into the business world. He is fanatical about technology, business processes, fraud prevention, time management, learning and peace of mind. When Kirk discovered Bitcoin at the end of 2013 it magnified and extended his passions leading him down the Bitcoin Rabbit Hole, an experience described by many Bitcoiners. A friend of his asked for advice saying, “Kirk, my husband and I want to invest $800 in a computer to mine bitcoin and make some money. What do you think?” to which he responded, “I don’t know anything about Bitcoin, I’ll have to get back to you.” This simple question was the birth of The Ultimate Bitcoin Business Guide.

  • I was wondering if anyone had any experience with p2p lending with bitcoins? I can see there seems to be a bunch of cryptocurrency p2p lending sites. Does anybody have any experience with them? I’ve already mined some bitcoins and was thinking it might be interesting to capture a yield on them. Alternatively, I was thinking if the p2p bitcoin is crap and it’s too risky not to get paid back, to take the other side of the trade: borrow (maybe to buy some more mining equipment) and then default on the loan…

  • This company is basically a full reserved bank that would be fully approved by Murray Rothbard himself. Their metals broker-dealer business is their cash cow today but they are creating a payment network that disintermediates banks and saves their customers money. They have a crypto broker-dealer and storage business as well but as prudent financial advisors the company’s management tries to educate the public about the virtues of gold ownership. The company acts like a fiduciary and seems much more trustworthy than market leaders like coinbase. Expanding into China with a customary 50/50 JV with a local company. Tough to predict the companies FCF going forward but it trades under 2x book value. Let me know what you guys think.
