I'm adding to the dumpster fire that is Bitcoiners commenting on the launch of Grin, a privacy-focused altcoin that went live this week. Let me be clear, I have no problem with individuals in a free market collaborating to bring something to the market. I do not think there was anything unethical about the launch, in fact, it is fairer than all of the launches one witnesses in this wasteland of a "space". However, I do not think Grin will have any lasting longevity because you can't manufacture serendipity, which is what every altcoin created in Bitcoin's wake has attempted to do since Namecoin.
Bartering, was it ever real?
I was a bit apprehensive to share this 🔥thread with you freaks because our boy Yassine has been getting an abnormal amount of tick in this rag, but I simply can't deny you freaks the high qual content you deserve. Definitely check it out if you get the chance at any point today, as Yassine does a good job of debunking some weak ass claims from David Graeber in regards to the history of barter and it's place in the pecking order of a monetary continuum. I have a feeling this thread won't be the end of this debate though.
GTA Miami Vice was a weak ass game.
