I'm really not excited for the future where cash is eliminated and you have to have an account on a dominant social media platform and a working surveillance device to buy anything. Also, in general, I find it very hard to care about how giant companies split the transaction fees.

@cstanhope I want cash to get better, not to go away. There's something good about making a transaction instantly without any third party being able to veto it. Maybe this is the only thing anarchists will agree with me on.


@CharredStencil @cstanhope fuck this cryptocoin bullshit techbros think is a good idea.

unless i can carry it in my pocket, instantly give it to a stranger on the street, it's not money and it isn't better than our current system.
