Let's see in 2030.

2019-01-06 11:17:00 UTC  

sorry Paradox 😛 but i had to

2019-01-06 11:17:09 UTC  

While people do overhype crypto way too much, it does have its uses

2019-01-06 11:17:18 UTC  

No one is arguing that

2019-01-06 11:17:31 UTC  

I never said they were

2019-01-06 11:17:35 UTC  

That was just my opinion on the matter

2019-01-06 11:17:52 UTC  

oh i'm not arguing against you, i was agreeing 😛

2019-01-06 11:18:00 UTC  

o

2019-01-06 11:18:18 UTC  

Owen Benjamin says crypto is like gold for kids with autism lol

2019-01-06 11:18:32 UTC  

rip typo

2019-01-06 11:19:11 UTC  

but crypto advocates conveniently forget that crypto is tied to standard legal tender currency

2019-01-06 11:19:46 UTC  

"bitcoin is worth 4000 dollars"

well the dollar is worth 0 now, hence bitcoin is worth 0

2019-01-06 11:20:36 UTC  

cuz no american company can buy your bitcoin in exchange for what you wanted to purchase, since their dollars are useless

2019-01-06 11:20:45 UTC  

Well, that could change, but it would require exchanges to be made with crypto, which I don't see happening on a mainstream scale.

I can't go into walmart and buy a gallon of milk with crypto

2019-01-06 11:21:07 UTC  

exactly

2019-01-06 11:21:28 UTC  

its essentially
"I get your crypto, and i pay with my real money for your goods to an equal amount"

2019-01-06 11:21:36 UTC  

"I buy 1 bitcoin, and you get to spend 4000 of my dollars"

2019-01-06 11:22:23 UTC  

Ofc, I can't go into walmart and buy a gallon of milk with a chunk of gold either.

2019-01-06 11:22:54 UTC  

ye, but if shit hits the fan, atleast you'll have a block of gold

2019-01-06 11:23:05 UTC  

if electricity fails, you'll have billions on a harddrive you can't access 😉

2019-01-06 11:23:12 UTC  

until someone kills me and takes it and then eats my corpse for food

2019-01-06 11:23:16 UTC  

Crypto is retarded

2019-01-06 11:23:30 UTC  

you can't eat gold, get food and supplies for your bunker instead

2019-01-06 11:23:35 UTC  

It will never take off an only idiots ride the hype wave

2019-01-06 11:23:40 UTC  

fun fact:

If electricity fails, you literally become the crypto prince of nigeria

2019-01-06 11:23:47 UTC  

lol

2019-01-06 11:23:54 UTC  

"I need money to power up my crypto drive, after that i can pay you back in crypto"

2019-01-06 11:24:18 UTC  

money and a connection

2019-01-06 11:24:21 UTC  

also you can't eat gold, but you can beat someone over the head with it 😛

2019-01-06 11:24:29 UTC  

gold is freakin' heavy

2019-01-06 11:24:50 UTC  

For real idk why people think crypto will be real. We have eDollars. Its called a fucking credit card

2019-01-06 11:25:04 UTC  

same reason you have flat earthers

2019-01-06 11:25:10 UTC  

or those conspiracy nuts

2019-01-06 11:25:21 UTC  

People need to believe something to maintain the idea they have some control in life

2019-01-06 11:25:24 UTC  

cuz reality scares them

2019-01-06 11:25:26 UTC  

Yeah but financiers buying into it

2019-01-06 11:25:48 UTC  

Potential

2019-01-06 11:25:49 UTC  

People are just making tonnes of cash off idiot basement dwellers

2019-01-06 11:25:52 UTC  

ofc

2019-01-06 11:26:10 UTC  

crypto isn't the only way people are making tons of cash off idiots
