Literally the only real reason anyone cares about anything blockchain-related is because they think if they speculate, it'll make them rich. There's literally no other reason. And they're willing to risk the future of this world to become rich off of pure speculation. Ugh.

@zkat I think crypto currency has a real shot at making governments become more honest and quit with the funny money. I think it’s very valuable to the world

@nickchuckwalter no, it's literally just going to be another thing that governments tax because it's not actually currency, it's speculation tokens whose value is solely based on how much money people think they can make through HODLing it.

@zkat what gives government money value? That’s speculative too. I think people will choose money that can’t be made out of tin air in the end

@nickchuckwalter people actually use government money for exchanging goods and services. They derive their value that way, primarily.

@zkat true! Both government $ and crypto has value
