I just want to throw some clarity to my previous comment on cryptocurrency.
I think the future won't have 1 universal cryptocurrency, it will have hundreds of them, each for each tribe and its sect of believers.
Crypto does not have any inherent value at all other than faith...yes so it is true of most things nowadays that "fashion" regulates, what you call market trends...but the system of believing is more and more volatile. The middle man on crypto will be the one that gains from a previous believer becoming a nonbeliever and want to swap via converting his tribe crypto to the next tribe crypto, or to the next trend super duper crypto...whatever he converts his crypto into to get to the new promise land crypto doesn't matter, be it gold, art, sheep...the middle man is not in the daily transaction via crypto but in converting to the next pop culture crypto...things change but patterns repeat and everything stays the same. My point is the faster the currency, the more abstract and mobile it is, the more overheat it brings to the system and with it a war on propper information on its actual value. People lie on average 200 times a day, nobody wants the truth sadly, they want deception and belonging to a tribe narrative...that used to be the State and Religion...if those go something else will fill the void. Fashion money scares me!
The thing is "money" was always information...but proper information is becoming more and more intellectually expensive!
