The fact that it can never be an effective or stable currency because it is a commodity foremost? The fact that it is inevitably and inextricably tied to criminal activity? The rampant speculation that has destroyed lives and families? The devastating carbon footprint? So much to choose from! Good to link up with you here, too! XD askalis 12th December, 2018 at 8:58 pm Don’t forget that the foundational ideologies of cryptocurrencies are fundamentally antisemitic! That’s always a “fun” one! >_> lj_writes 12th December, 2018 at 10:37 pm The critique about cryptocurrency’s ties to criminality came from a Jewish blogger and they got a ton of antisemitic hate for that, predictably. *sigh* askalis 13th December, 2018 at 9:11 am ðŸ˜ðŸ˜ðŸ˜ Comments are closed.
