So don't talk to me about proof-of-work vs proof-of-space vs proof-of-bandwidth vs proof-of-stake. It's not what this is about. Energy waste just makes something that is already bad even worse. I don't see any merit in making ponzi schemes more eco-friendly.
Folks raving about #cryptocurrency are not interested in the technology. They are interested in an unregulated financial system allowing them to pull off things that are downright illegal. That's why they are trying to get as many people on board as possible. It's predatory.
I write bugs for a living, pretty cool eh?
