Blockchain is Amway for nerds... change my mind.
@TheGibson It is possible to have a blockchain/currency with a temporally and spatially symmetric issuance algorithm.
@TheGibson It would function as a means of exchange. But not necessarily relating to "pretend scarcity".
@thegibson I have a nephew who is hyper-enthusiastic about both MLMs and blockchain and I don't think this is a coincidence.
@signal9 yeah, the difference is that one of these is damaging the climate, and the other sells dishsoap or something.
@thegibson How can you trust it if it isn't measured in kWh? How can you trust it if it doesn't dim the lights of 6 or 7 equatorial countries? You need to see the bigger picture.
@thegibson Amway actually sells products. It's not the main point, it's still a grift, but you get something, unlike blockchain.
MOTHERFUCKER. XS Energy? I know some people who were pushing that really hard, gave me a free can, and got really upset when I told them it tasted like licking carpet full of carpet cleaner, with a faint hint of whatever animal effluent they were cleaning up. I didn't know they were doing it to pay off their mob vig^W^W Amway payments.
A bunch of technomancers in the fediverse. Keep it fairly clean please. This arcology is for all who wash up upon it's digital shore.
