"Cryptocurrency is one of the worst inventions of the 21st century. [...] It has failed to be a useful currency, invented a new class of internet abuse, further enriched the rich, wasted staggering amounts of electricity, hastened climate change, ruined hundreds of otherwise promising projects, provided a climate for hundreds of scams to flourish, created shortages and price hikes for consumer hardware, and injected perverse incentives into technology everywhere. Fuck cryptocurrency."
@v0tti well, to be fair with cryptocurrencies, that only true for those stupid enough to incentivize mining by making money generation depend on proof-of-work... (yes BitCoin, we're looking at you).
There are plenty of alternatives that are much better, such as Nano or (even better) G1
@v0tti can say almost the same thing about Internet. Literally, just replace "cryptocurrency" with the "internet": enriched the rich, waste of electricity, climate change, hundreds of scams, bla bla bla. Blockchain is very young and complicated technology, give it some time 😉
