Against Kleptocracy Through Cryptocurrency: Harapan Coin

Assalamualaikum and greetings,

Friends and fellow Malaysians,

The 14th General Election is right at our doorstep. It is time for the people to choose a new government and punish the ones who have acted in a manner that is unjust to the people. This is our golden opportunity to work together and unseat UMNO/Barisan National. In order for that to happen, we need to be fully prepared, not only in our manifestos and promises, but also with sufficient funds for the upcoming election.

Just like Sun Tzu wrote in the Art of War, “To rely on rustics and not prepare is the greatest of crimes; to be prepared beforehand for any contingency is the greatest of virtues.” Building a winning team indeed comes with a high price tag. The success of a campaign can be contingent on the amount of funds invested in it. We, unlike UMNO/Barisan Nasional, have have limited funds.

Take a moment to recall the purported donation money for the previous election amounting to RM2.6 billion which was credited directly to the Prime Minister’s personal account. Does that sound realistic to you? If that was the bar set for the last election, surely this year the amount collected would reach a record high! Why? Because this coming election is predicted to be the fiercest election in our nation’s history.

Friends and fellow Malaysians,

There are so many followers and supporters of Pakatan Harapan overseas who want to contribute to our fight against the corrupt regime. They consist of professionals with corporate backgrounds, SMEs, and not to forget Malaysian students who are currently studying overseas. Yet, in all previous elections, they had great difficulty in making their intended contributions due to a variety of reasons.

Recently, a group of progressive youths living overseas came to see me. They had a proposal to make the contributions easier and more difficult to intercept. They wanted to launch a campaign to raise funds through Initial Coin Offerings (ICO). For those who are unaware, ICO is a new method to raise funds via cryptocurrency and Blockchain technology. As they presented their proposal, I became attracted to it due to its simplicity and more importantly, potential to raise the amount needed to unseat UMNO/BN.

They came up with the idea of a token called “Harapan Coin”, which signifies a new hope for the future of our nation and beloved country. This cashless method of raising funds could be the solution that we’ve all been waiting for, a safe and easy solution to allow supporters from overseas to help Pakatan Harapan win this election.

Transactions using cryptocurrencies are recorded on open ledgers accessible to anyone, and this ensures integrity and transparency of transactions made. In my opinion, it is the best solution that we have and I fully support their effort to make this campaign successful. It must be understood that we are using this currency purely for the purpose of raising funds. It is not for speculation.

I also pledge to ensure that the funds collected will be transfered to Pakatan Harapan and when we make it to Putrajaya, I will commit to making Harapan Coin the official digital currency for Pakatan Harapan.

I would like to end with a quote by Wael Ghonim, “The power of the people is much stronger than the people in power.” Let’s change Malaysia for the better, starting with buying Harapan Coin.

Change Malaysia, buy Harapan Coin..

Lawatan Kerja ke Kilang Carlsberg

Tajuk posting saya kali ini barangkali akan memeranjatkan sesetengah pihak. Lanjutan daripada perbincangan berhubung Terminal Bas Shah Alam , saya bersama beberapa Ahli Majlis MBSA telah melawat kilang Carlsberg pada hari Khamis 5 Ogos, jam 3 petang. Kami disambut oleh Dato’ Chin Voon Loong, Timbalan Pengarah Urusan Syarikat berkenaan. Beliau memberikan penjelasan dan latar belakang syarikat serta prestasi perniagaannya semenjak ianya mula beroperasi. Untuk makluman semua, kilang Carlsberg Shah Alam telah mula beroperasi pada tahun 1972, iaitu 38 tahun dahulu. Ia merupakan di antara kilang yang terawal di kawasan tersebut dan semasa ianya dibina, hanya hutan dan belukar di kelilingnya.

Oktoberfest dan Pendirian Saya

Temuramah saya yang dibuat oleh ISMA berhubung isu Oktoberfest telah banyak menimbulkan kontroversi. Mungkin kerana ramai hanya membaca tajuk. Sepertimana biasa. Malas untuk membaca dan faham tetapi teringin sangat mengutuk. Lebih-lebih lagi bila yang memberi komen itu adalah diri saya. Malang sungguh nasib mereka ini. Tidak faham dan terus menceritakan mengikut selera mereka. Sampai ada yang mengatakan saya ‘sokong’ dan ucapkan tahniah. Biasalah. Kalau semua sudah faham, kurang pulalah kerja untuk saya!

Menjawab Najib Razak

1. Bekas SU Politik saya Ahli Lembaga Penasihat DBKL. Ianya jawatan non-executive dan hanya berfungsi menasihati Dato Bandar dalam isu-isu dasar. Lembaga tersebut tidak memberi kelulusan untuk apa-apa permohonan. 2. Ya saya yang lantik kerana dia berpengalaman sebagai Ahli Majlis MBSA selama dua sesi dan merupakan seorang profesional lulusan Kejuruteraan dari sebuah Universiti Amerika. Dengan Pengalaman dan ilmunya dia dipercayai boleh menasihati Dato Bandar DBKL dalam banyak persoalan. 3. Ya dia juga Ketua AMANAH Kawasan Shah Alam sejak 2015 dan merupakan pimpinan pelapis yang insyaAllah akan gantikan saya. 4. Saya Ahli Parlimen Shah Alam sejak 2008, kawasan 80% pengundi Melayu yang telah menangkan saya dengan majoriti sebanyak 30 ribu lebih pada 2018. Shah Alam kawasan Melayu dan mereka inginkan wakil dan kepimpinan yang bebas rasuah. Jho Low (kanan) bersama keluarga Najib Razak.
