Speeding up the BRICS - SCO payment systemA new, "cutting-edge" payment system for the currencies of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO) and BRICS countries should be established as soon as possible, according to the chairman of Russia's National Economic Development Organization VEB.RF, Igor Shuvalov.
In his remarks at a Russian-Chinese Business Forum on Tuesday in Shanghai, Shuvalov emphasized the need for Russia and China to hasten the development of an effective payment system.
"We urge the government of the Russian Federation and our Chinese partners to act as actively as possible.
An independent and efficient infrastructure of payments is necessary not only for ensuring the "ruble/yuan" pair but also for carrying out the most serious transactions in SCO and BRICS currencies," said Shuvalov.

I want to first thank my team of dedicated lawyers and others for their tireless work upholding justice and defending truth.
My deepest thanks as well to all of the United States Senators and Members of Congress who stood proudly for the Constitution we all revere and for the sacred legal principles at the heart of our country.
Our cherished Constitutional Republic was founded on the impartial rule of law, the indispensable safeguard for our liberties, our rights and our freedoms.
It is a sad commentary on our times that one political party in America is given a free pass to denigrate the rule of law, defame law enforcement, cheer mobs, excuse rioters, and transform justice into a tool of political vengeance, and persecute, blacklist, cancel and suppress all people and viewpoints with whom or which they disagree. I always have, and always will, be a champion for the unwavering rule of law, the heroes of law enforcement, and the right of Americans to peacefully and honorably debate the issues of the day without malice and without hate.
This has been yet another phase of the greatest witch hunt in the history of our Country. No president has ever gone through anything like it, and it continues because our opponents cannot forget the almost 75 million people, the highest number ever for a sitting president, who voted for us just a few short months ago.
I also want to convey my gratitude to the millions of decent, hardworking, law-abiding, God-and-Country loving citizens who have bravely supported these important principles in these very difficult and challenging times.
Our historic, patriotic and beautiful movement to Make America Great Again has only just begun. In the months ahead I have much to share with you, and I look forward to continuing our incredible journey together to achieve American greatness for all of our people. There has never been anything like it!
We have so much work ahead of us, and soon we will emerge with a vision for a bright, radiant, and limitless American future.
Together there is nothing we cannot accomplish.
We remain one People, one family, and one glorious nation under God, and it is our responsibility to preserve this magnificent inheritance for our children and for generations of Americans to come.
May God bless all of you, and may God forever bless the United States of America.

New Bills Filled with Real GoldNew Private Currency Uses Bills Filled with Real Gold.
In 2019, Goldback president Jeremy Cordon said he had a dream in which he saw people paying for groceries using golden bills.
Gold is the best money, but it can't buy a loaf of bread.
To solve this problem, Cordon used new technology to create a bill that sandwiches a particle-thin gold layer between two layers of polymer.
The result can be worth as little as $3.80.
