Peak clown world = bitcoin
peak retarded = Dogecoin
The difference between the power usage of porn and say, video games and that of Bitcoin is that the former have, ahem, utility, that is to say they provide pleasure, whereas Bitcoin provides no utility in its power waste. Please note, I’m not criticizing those who made money off Bitcoin, if something absurd or bad happened to help our side, so much the better. I may break down and get some myself.
Gently entertaining show which ranged beyond what the title alone suggested might have been a somewhat dry treatment of crypto assets. However the definition given of NFTs (Non Fungible Tokens) was distinctly lacking even as to basics imo – I still don’t know if they are supposed to be representative of an underlying physical or electronic “asset” in the way a depositary receipt might be so as to confer ownership of that underlying asset; or of an undivided share in it maybe. If yes, that provokes further questions as to custodianship, bankruptcy risk etc. Do you own, or is it like you and your bank – you are its unsecured creditor for amounts deposited by you? If no, then it’s hard to see what value is to be had, beyond perhaps the “value” inherent in having the electronic equivalent of e.g. a paper copy of one book from a print run of 10,000. But there again, as the tokens are supposed to be non-fungible the name implies only one person can have ownership of one tokenised asset…? And as per usual e.g UK tax authorities’ only mention of NFTs in the manual on crypto assets is one line stating:
‘Non-Fungible Tokens (NFTs) are separately identifiable and so are not pooled.’
Overall one gets the distinct impression that like the Meta-verse, NFTs are part of an intended monetisation / IP capture of everything in the global landscape that isn’t already owned by the usurers and their offshoots (e.g. Big Pharma) so they can only be used temporarily in exchange for some sort of tribute, i.e. everything “as a service”.
Subject needs much more probing, but unlike crypto-currency (which can be benign like e.g. units in a LETS scheme) it seems somehow wrapped up in GlobalID, virtualisation of life, corralling into smart cities and the boot on face fantasies of the money “masters of the universe”
Enjoyed this vanguard discussion, especially the suggestion to help the group with sage advice on wealth accumulation and management. Especially for writers, many are going to need a day job… Chekhov, Dostoyevsky, Frost, and Wallace Stevens all did.
I guess I wince when the discussion turns to COVID. I can agree that it is unlikely to harm children, but I have both kids and frail older relatives. We don’t need our kids to kill off their grandparents or never get a chance to visit. I’d rather see Moderna and Pfizer turn a profit than left wing media outlets or misguided activists.
