On an episode of ‘Besogan TV,’ which roughly translates to ‘demon basher TV,’ Mikhalkov claimed the patent number of Microsoft’s cryptocurrency system – WO/2020/060606 – alludes to the occult nature of the technology.
Oscar-winning Russian director, Nikita Mikhalkov, has espoused a bizarre conspiracy theory on local television. He claims that Microsoft’s recent patent for a sensor-based cryptocurrency mining system using body activity data comprises the first-step in a satanic plot to microchip the human race.
“The 060606 part is somewhat alarming. You probably understand this, right? Is this a coincidence or an intentional selection of such a symbol, which in the Apocalypse of John is called the ‘number of the beast’ – the 666”, he stated.
Russian director promulgates coronavirus conspiracy
Mikhalkov claims that the system will manifest as a global program to microchip the population under the guise of the Bill Gates Foundation’s efforts to develop a vaccine for COVID-19.
He claims that the program will be executed by Gates’ global “co-conspirators”, accusing Herman Gref, the head of Russian state-owned bank Sberbank, of being in on the diabolical scheme.
The episode was aired on the Rossiya 24 TV channel on May 1 before being removed from the channels schedule – prompting Mikhalkov to claim “censorship” on the part of the channel. After being posted online, the episode garnered 700,000 views in less than one day.
The conspiracy theory even garnered support from Russian politician and retired Tennis player, Marat Safin.
Conspiracy goes viral
The theory ignores the absence of any mention of microchips in Microsoft’s patent, obscures Gates’ affiliation with the company after having stepped-down from the conglomerate’s board, and provides little explanation of the purpose of the microchipping program advanced by Mikhalkov.
As stated by RT. “Those who fear being forcefully microchipped by an evil corporation should probably first check their own pockets for a little ‘tracking device’ called a smartphone, which they have purchased and carry around voluntarily.”
One of World’s Richest Firms Joins Blockchain Trade Platform Vakt After $5M Investment
Announced in a press release Tuesday, Saudi Aramco Energy Ventures (SAEV) now joins 11 other investors in Vakt. The oil giant also intends to become a user of the Vakt platform via another subsidiary, Aramco Trading Company.
SAEV parent firm Saudi Aramco, according to Wikipedia, has the second biggest daily oil production and the second larges proven oil reserves globally. Its $25.6 billion IPO in 2019 was reported to be the the world’s biggest to date.
“VAKT has demonstrated that their platform has the potential to digitise what is currently a very manual process and be truly transformative to end users and customers,” said Hans Middelthon, managing director of SAEV Europe. “Leveraging blockchain theory and applying it to the complicated world of post-trade processing, VAKT has made a compelling pitch to become an integral part of market infrastructure.”
Vakt is already active in the North Sea crude oil market. The new deal will see Aramco Trading bring its own North Sea trading volumes to the platform, according to the release.
The blockchain-enabled firm said the new investment will assist continued development of its platform, as well as expansion into new markets – with a particular focus on Asia.
“SAEV – part of the most profitable business in the world – has a strong track record of investing in industry innovation,” VAKT CFO Richard James said. “We were not proactively seeking further investors; however, we could not miss the chance to bring on-board a partner of this calibre, which is a tremendous show of faith in VAKT’s vision.
