The Reset: When Will Globalists Attempt To Introduce Their Digital Currency System?

June 20, 2023

This article was written by Brandon Smith and originally published at Birch Gold Group

I want you to imagine, for a moment, a future world in which everything we now know about functioning and surviving within the economy is completely upended. This world has gone fully digital, meaning people live within a cashless society where physical monetary interactions are abandoned or prohibited, replaced by CBDCs. All transactions are tracked and traced, nothing is private any longer unless you are operating as a criminal within a black market.

By extension, production is overtly suppressed and micromanaged. Small businesses are a thing of the past, and only a select group of major corporations working directly with government are allowed to operate. It’s not just that cash is outlawed and that everyone must rely on a digital ledger, the very data pathways and networks that we use to transfer funds are also controlled. Much like the SWIFT data network, the globalists have the ability to lock down internet payments, individual accounts and business accounts and deny people the ability to move funds from one place to another.

In the meantime, AI-based monitoring systems sift through millions of transactions every minute, searching for “anomalies.” The algorithm is designed to identify anyone who has found a way around the data tracking – People who want to remain anonymous.

The internet still exists, but it’s a shell of its former glory. The population uses it regularly to complete necessary tasks and to research information, but data providers are severely restricted. Cryptocurrencies are not an option as an alternative to the CBDCs because trading them online immediately sets off red flags for the AI-in-the-sky.

Only government approved websites are allowed to exist, with extensive rules limiting what they can do and what they can say. AI chatbots provide the public with most of their information, and the globalists control the parameters of the chatbots. People only ever hear the news that the elites want them to hear. All contrary data is eliminated. It’s not so much banned, rather, it is simply omitted from the record until the people who remember it are long gone.

It might sound like science fiction, but ALL of this technology already exists and is currently being tested by globalist institutions including the Bank for International Settlements and the IMF.

Not long ago during the covid pandemic scare, organizations like the World Economic Forum began widely promoting a concept called the “Great Reset.” It was an agenda sometimes whispered about in banker conferences as far back as 15 years ago, but now the Reset was being promoted openly in the media and at Davos.  It’s a new economic paradigm, a revolution in which AI runs everything, humanity is relegated to a limited number of vital jobs, and a new brand of technological socialism rules our lives. Private property would be cast aside and the populace would live day-to-day within a “shared economy” in which no one owns anything and everything is borrowed from the collective system.

The Reset, or the 4th Industrial Revolution as they sometimes call it, would be the start of a new terrifying age of feudalism. It’s a return to the oligarch and peasant model, a return to enslavement. The average person would only be allowed to work as a means to survive, never to accumulate wealth for the future. And each peasant’s survival would be utterly dependent on their access to the system, which could be taken away with the push of a button.

The primary stepping stone to this dystopian nightmare would be a global digital currency system. Without a cashless society, the globalists would have no power to enforce the other elements of their Reset. But when and how will they implement this monstrosity, and why would anyone embrace it?

Globalists tend to operate in stages of incrementalism, but sometimes they exploit dramatic crisis events in order to frighten the population into compliance with policies that would have taken decades to institute otherwise. We saw this clearly with the pandemic; most of the Reset concepts were revealed to the public during this time, perhaps because the globalists thought they had it in the bag and there was nothing anyone could do to stop them. This even included consistent talk of cashless systems to “prevent the spread of covid on physical dollars.”

But, covid with its tiny Infection Fatality Rate failed to frighten people enough and the opportunity fell apart. Today, the question is when will they try again?

Most globalist organizations consistently mention the year 2030 as their timeline for finishing the numerous projects they have in place, including the “Great Reset” along with multiple climate and carbon taxation goals. The WEF calls it “a social contract to transform our world by 2030.” The UN simply calls it “Agenda 2030.”

This means the establishment wants to have their control grid in place within seven years or less. That would be impossible without a bone rattling crisis of epic proportions, but first they would have to introduce a number of future mechanisms as a trial run. That way, when disaster does occur the public will be acclimated to the solutions that the elites will ask them to adopt later.

In the case of digital currencies, crypto has already received wide exposure in popular media. Most people don’t own crypto and hardly anyone uses it, but they have all heard of it. CBDCs will likely ride the crypto wave and will be presented as a “safer and more stable” crypto option.

For now, Australia seems to be the primary guinea pig for fielding CBDCs to a large western population. Their pilot programs are set to finish this summer and international transactions have been accomplished using the eAUD unit. Though, they have not revealed when they might introduce the currency to Forex markets or the citizenry. The point is, the system exists, and can be copied and adopted by any other nations.

At bottom, globalists know that countries like America will not accept a fully cashless system without a complete collapse of their existing currency and economy. It’s just not going to happen otherwise, and I have doubts that many Americans will accept such a system even after a collapse. The majority of Americans, 59%, say they like to have cash with them for various purchases.

Though western consumers make payments more often with bank cards, they still enjoy having physical money when they want it. The implications of intricate digital surveillance of every single purchase and transfer of funds is not lost on a large portion of the population. People know that if they give the government a telescope into their wallets eventually that information will be used against them. Take away the option of anonymity and millions of people will resist, even if they have nothing in particular to hide.

Conversion to a cashless system would require calamity and force, a full spectrum crisis throughout the US and much of the western world in the next few years, along with another few years or more of reconstruction to bring in CBDC mechanisms.  Small businesses would have to be removed from the picture, leaving only major corporations which could then refuse to accept cash as a means of payment from consumers.  This would be one method of expediting the cashless system, along with outright government confiscation of physical paper.

That said, there is another rather blunt way to push Americans into CBDCs that the globalists seem to be expediting – The death of the dollar’s world reserve currency status.  Only five years ago skeptics argued that the dollar would be king for many decades to come.  Today, those same people are eerily quiet as the IMF announces their own global CBDC called the “UMU” and BRICs nations quickly move away from the Greenback in bilateral trade.  If the US dollar loses a majority of its buying power through inflation and the loss of reserve status, it may be easier to convince the populace to abandon it for a digital replacement.

If we take the globalist timeline of 2030 as an effective limiter, this would mean another crisis even more pervasive than the covid pandemic would have to take place soon in order for the elites to get what they want. The longer they wait, the more people become educated on their agenda and the less likely it will be to succeed.

    I think the same thing.
    Also, remember this warning, 3 years ago:

    Last week, according to the Swiss press, hackers – Russian, of course! Who else?! – attacked the infrastructures of the Swiss Federal Administration and other targets.
    I remember that at the very start of the war in Ukraine, or “special military operation”, following the sanctions “taken” by Switzerland against Russian interests and individuals, some Swiss newspapers warned of future attacks or ” retaliations ” from Russian hackers…

  • UncommonSense June 20, 2023 at 8:27 am

    That catalyst to force people to gladly accept the CBDC could occur in Jun 2025 when the debt limit is no longer punted by Congress. How convenient of them to extend it 2 years instead of one: next year being an election year & they don’t want to be bothered…let it fall on the next president.

    Also Brandon, you should have mentioned that the US-version of CBDC called “FedNow” begins it’s IOC (systems engineering speak ~ Initial Operating Capability) next month. I’m sure they (the State and various banks & big companies) will have worked out all the issues between July & Jun of ’25 and will be fully ready for forced adoption when our gov’t defaults on the debt & dumps the dollar.

    Lucis Trust which is the spiritual arm of the UN…2025 is the big lead in year for completion in 2030…with some corporate figure being a “christ” taking charge…18-24 months out…

    China is the globalist model…in terms of testing digital currencies, facial recognition, social credit scoring, etc etc etc

  • Gauntlet33 June 20, 2023 at 9:34 am

    Brandon: “Cryptocurrencies are not an option as an alternative to the CBDCs because trading them online immediately sets off red flags for the AI-in-the-sky.”
    You reminded me (perhaps by intention) of the song Eye in the Sky, a great song even if funded by the globalists.
    “CBDCs will likely ride the crypto wave and will be presented as a “safer and more stable” crypto option.” Totally agree that this was the plan all along. Never invested one cent, but I wish good luck to all who did. Anyway, I still strongly believe the globalists will fail, but that they’ll leave a tsunami of a mess in their wake, and hopefully things are much brighter after their attempt flatlines.

    Brandon, interesting article on 7 year acceleration from U.N.

  • Shay June 20, 2023 at 11:11 am

    Also, people don’t need to “imagine” anything- it’s already happening live on Earth in China. Have friends and family there- QR codes, Social Credit scores, microphones/cameras inside homes to track everything you say/do, and CBDCs that take money from you everytime you did something “bad” or “wrong” according to Mr. Big Brother Xi. Coming to your neighborhood very soon IF PEOPLE DONT STAND UP AND FIGHT.

    so the whole thing packs up when there is a power outage and its looking like we are going to have more of those going forward, what genius tried to set it up so we will be exclusively reliant on this stuff

    Have a look JHK’s last article:

    Wait and see, but this summer could be like 2008, only worse.

  • Farmer June 20, 2023 at 7:16 pm

    My thoughts on the currency reset timeline are:

    A market crash/decline begins next week into an August Panic. The actual crash occurs in the fall when all the major crashes have occurred. The Feds have caused the decline with rate increases. At some point they will pivot but it will be too late to save the markets or the economy. The lowering of interest rates will crash the dollar which will also coincide with a bond market crash. Then the stage will be set for global currency bailouts and acceptance. My 2 C’s.

  • Rodster June 20, 2023 at 9:36 pm

    Excellent write up by Brandon. Here’s another reason why CBDC’s are destined for failure. CBDC’s require massive amounts of energy to keep the system operating and on a global scale. The energy that crypto’s required are a drop in the bucket.

    The Globalists are moving the world away from fossil fuels and replacing it with green energy. Well green energy i.e. wind and solar are spotty at best. They also cause blackouts because energy is temporary and can’t be stored. So their hope of having a fully running and stable cashless system is doomed for failure.

    As Brandon noted, people who love liberty and freedom will resist. They will also use paper currency to barter. Eventually people will realize that they have been duped.

    At this point, all we have left is civil war, because they have stopped thinking of us as citizens, but as subjects to be used to fellate their masters. This administration, the Deep State and the Banking industry need to be reorganized at gunpoint. As Chairman Mao was noted to have said, “Political power comes out of the barrel of a gun”. Either we fight back with the same tools they use against us, (meaning law enforcement with guns on their hips) or we’ll live as indentured servants for their pleasure the rest of our lives.

    What is the matter with you young people? Did you get sterialized in some manner that you can’t see what is happening? Remember this my friends, “FREEDOM IS NOT FREE AND MUST FOUGHT FOR EVERY STEP OF THE WAY” !!!

  • Ikram Rabi June 21, 2023 at 12:52 pm

    As you said, They would need another crisis more pervasive than the COVID..’ Is that mean China and Taiwan will go into a full scale war, which like Ukraine would turn into Proxy War?? Another Obstacle, reaching this timeline (2030), according to WEF is that approximately 2 billion plus people are not yet stuck in this Web, I mean they are not part of “The Internet of Things….” So they have to trap them and make them part of The Matrix…

  • Roundball Shaman June 21, 2023 at 1:05 pm

    ‘Digital Currency’ is really… ‘DADDY’ Currency. In short, you get an ‘Allowance’ from Your DaddyGov!
    And Daddy gets to tell you when and how and where and IF you get to ‘spend’ it.
    ‘Daddy, can I buy a candy bar?’
    ‘NO! It’s bad for you!’
    ‘How ‘bout a hamburger?’
    ‘NO! That’s bad for The Climate! Cows are GOING AWAY!’
    ‘Can I buy a bow-and-arrow set?’
    ‘NO! Those are dangerous!’
    ‘Can I buy a book?’
    ‘ONLY what’s on the Approved List of what WE say…’
    ‘Daddy… will I EVER get to have my own money again?’
    (Daddy falls down in a heap of uncontrolled laughter…)

  • Linda June 21, 2023 at 3:05 pm

    Hi Brandon,

    I have been following your work for over ten years and your ability to predict future events is outstanding…..

    You picked Brexit in 2015 and Trump in 2016 and in November 2019 you wrote an article stating that you thought that Elizabeth Warren would be the best candidate to take on Trump in the 2020 election. Because of that article I followed the 2020 US Election on a daily basis, to say that the election was odd was an UNDERSTATEMENT.

    I still think that you picked the US 2020 Election winner (Elizbeth Warren). I actually think that there will be a rerun of the US 2020 Election and Elizabeth Warren will win and it will be after the crash of the US Dollar/ economy….(Spoiler Alert, watch the Simpson episode when Lisa Simpson becomes President).

    I actually think that the crash of the US Dollar/ economy will be very soon. I’m unsure what will cause it there is a few powder kegs around at the moment, ie, China invading Taiwan, the US banks solvency etc……

    On another note I live in Australia and I can see that we will be the first cab off the rank to join the New World Order……But lately I have changed my attitude to Australian’s (which I am one of)…..We just had a Scamdemic and our government showed it’s true colours’ by going full authoritarian (it was horrible living in Australia during the scandemic) and now the government wants to hold a referendum for “The Voice” to parliament and the Australian public is showing virtually no interest in the matter…..You would have thought that during the many lockdown and forced injections someone would have wised up to the government but no, the majority of Australians still trust the government.

    Australia’s major internet news website is already posting stories about how “The Voice” particulars aren’t yet worked out and won’t be until after the referendum and still no one is really taking any interest in it.

    My question for you is that: I can see the writing on the wall in Australia and I still have a few more years left before the opportunity to leave Australia is closed. Which countries would you see as the best place to move to which in the following years?

      Brandon Smith June 21, 2023 at 4:35 pm

      I actually didn’t predict that Warren would win. During the Democrat primaries I argued that she was receiving the most positive coverage from the media and, being a woman like Clinton, I thought they would pick her as the next candidate. I was wrong. Surprisingly, they picked Slow Joe. As far as relocation, hard to say. I would argue in favor of a red state in the US as your best bet for freedom in the coming years. I can’t think of another place in the world I would rather be.

      • Kevin June 22, 2023 at 12:33 pm

        Always surprises me to read comments on various websites from Americans who are looking to move abroad to escape the global totalitarian buildup. Red states in the US offer the best hope. I’d consider myself lucky to have that option as an American.

        • Rodster June 22, 2023 at 3:40 pm

          Yup, I was born here and I plan on finishing it out.

  • Linda June 21, 2023 at 5:19 pm

    Thanks Brandon,

    I really appreciate you taking the time to answer my question.

    Montana looks great, I don’t like the cold but I wouldn’t like living in a 20 minute city in Australia even more.



    • Daniel Lubben June 21, 2023 at 10:07 pm

      I can only tell you that anyone I’ve ever known who moved to Montana (a cousin from New Jersey) or lived there for a while (some best friends) absolutely love Montana. Why? Freedom. Friendly people. Natural beauty.

    • Rodster June 22, 2023 at 10:36 am

      If you are coming from Oz then yes, Montana would be a drastic change in weather. I was born in NYC and lived there for 20 years before moving to Florida. I could adjust to the frigid cold.

      There are other places you could move too. Southern states such as Florida, Texas, Arkansas, Alabama, Georgia should be considered.

      • Gauntlet33 June 22, 2023 at 1:02 pm

        Rodster, I agree with your picks, but I would suggest that she stay away from Atlanta, GA.

      • Linda June 22, 2023 at 3:00 pm

        Thanks, you read my mind….I was thinking about Florida as an option….I grew up at the Sunshine Coast….

        • Rodster June 22, 2023 at 3:38 pm

          Just stay away from the big cities like Miami, Ft Lauderdale, Tampa, Jacksonville. When the SHTF things will get chaotic pretty quick.

    I have been reading your material for quite some time. Every time I read your articles it reminds me of prophecy I once read in a book. So freakin’ awesome. I know, it is all bleak and stuff, but man, if you think about it… what an amazing time to live in! It’s all about the food and finding a local community of like minded people. I need to find a way to stay connected when we can’t access materials like yours.. mesh network? Anyway, I hope we can keep in touch as things progress.

  • GLMK June 23, 2023 at 7:20 am

    Brandon, for the liberty minded that don’t want to opt into a CBDC system… What do you for see as the tone of daily life? I mean constant fear of a gunshot to you or your children’s head because you bartered some beef for some fish lends its own set of concerns. Still they leave us no choice… Just don’t want anyone romanticizing the notion of opting out and how easy that’s going to be. I don’t think it will be. Just interested in your thoughts on how economies like that could actually work. Maybe that’s another article. .. I’m a keep to myself person pretty much and so networking is hard for me. I was the five-year-old child who ran and hid when well-known aunts and uncles visited and have barely grown out of it. It’s just a hard thing for some of us to lean into that community. Still it’s necessary. The world you describe… Well I just don’t know. I’m glad I’m ready to meet my maker… But I’m not rushing things either. And I certainly don’t believe it’s OK to do nothing just because you have a firm belief in here-after life. Awesome unthinkable scary unbelievable times.

      There will be war in the US before CBDCs are ever allowed. I don’t think most red states will accept them. They will probably form their own separate economies and commodities based currencies. If the feds try to stop them, it will mean a shooting conflict. I think really what we have to think about is what kind of system will be in place for the next generation – The kids who are 10 years or less today. That’s who the globalists are targeting, the kids who will grow to be adults in the next 10-20 years and not remember the way things were. That’s who we’re fighting for.

      • Farmer June 23, 2023 at 5:07 pm

        You’ve written about the future replacement of the global reserve currency with an IMF/BIS/SDR kind of currency.

        You’ve also written about forcing citizens to use a digital, traceable currency for all their purchases.

        Do you see these as the same currency?
        If not, then do you see different timelines for their adoption?

        I personally would believe a new global currency could occur within this year, but a citizen digital currency might take much longer.

  • GLMK June 23, 2023 at 12:11 pm

    A great answer. Thank you. .. It makes me think… How one generation doesn’t really know how it was before…how things get progressively watered down until we are where we are today. And I think for the globalists… This is the crown jewel of them all… The last generations and frontiers to conquer until they’ve won. I’m sure that’s why God told Moses that he was to instruct the people in God’s ways and laws and that they were to tell their children and their children’s children. That is a crucial component of any lasting moral civilization. And it has been slowly eroded for a long time. .. and I do believe that’s why the childhood vaccine schedule has amped up so much along with targeting young kids with psych meds along with all of the grooming that’s going on in schools. … If they get these next generations they win.

    Thanks for the perspective on how alternate economies may happen/work. .. Your words actually gave me some peace and hope. Because I want to think that many of us will fight to keep CBDCs from happening.

  • Roserval Parkund June 26, 2023 at 12:01 am

    AI can only control the virtual space, not the physical aspects of the real world. If, or when, the above-described scenario occurs, a secondary (black) market will develop where people, and to an extent businesses, will trade stuff on a barter basis, or using an unofficial currency.

    For a global scheme to work, everybody has to be complicit. The lower down the hierarchy, however, the more the ‘enforcers’ will be on the receiving end too and the less willing to enforce it they’ll be.
