Read_714 – Bitcoin’s Meme Wars [DerGigi]

“The question that the fiat system answers is the following: who is allowed to counterfeit currency, and how much? Further, who is allowed to have access to money, and who isn’t? The answer is political and enforced by violence.
The Bitcoin system is answering the same questions, and the answers are as simple as they are ethical: nobody is allowed to counterfeit money, and anyone can access it. No exceptions.” – Gigi

Today we dive into an amazing piece published at Citadel21, and by the one and only Gigi, on the ethics encoded in the Fiat and Bitcoin systems, and how they make or break the human soul. The rules of the game establish how we relate to it, and how we can understand the purpose and meaning in its play. The best way to demoralize a person & make their efforts meaningless is to “change the rules, change them often, and change them arbitrarily.”
