It is your opinion and it is respectable.
Thank you for setting up the civilised discussion, we wouldn’t go anywhere without it. Arguments must be made in full, and opinions allowed to shift as visions are broadened up. A hard environment weakens that.
However, I continue to believe that the cryptomonnaie MUST become a real alternative to the currency directed by our governments
and that it is not by creating hundreds of thousands of “altcoins” that we’re going to achieve it one day.
Actually, I envision it as exactly that. We’re going to get there by having a BitCoin, a ReddCoin, a PotCoin and a GayCoin, as well as an AuntMarryShopCoin or a BronxCoin. It’s not a question of opinion, it’s just looking at what’s on the road ahead. If in the midst of the newfound freedom of financial tooling, one particular coin rises above others for a very broad use case, it’s just a question of who maintains control, corporate power or Open Source ethos.
Because I bet there will also be a VisaCoin :-\
There’s an alternative future which we’ve escaped from, and is not happening right now. In it, instead of having a plethora of text editors to choose from a savage ecosystem, you’re forced to use Microsoft Word, because your employer or your computer supplier made agreements to have “A Text Editor included in your computer”. This unlikely future was supposed to be happening now, and only due to the OSS alternatives making a continued effort to maintain the original engineering openness of systems, it has been derailed and replaced by an open ethos - that by the way, gave rise to crypto.
For a world-wide acceptance and general the replacing of the currency - “fiat” must be a safe and above all anonymous.
I don’t understand what this means, is it supposed to tie to the case in point? We weren’t opposing anything to fiat, and fiat IS anonymous, when used as cash - an enviable property that’s kept ‘money’ as an acceptable means of exchange throughout the years - something cryptos still strive for. I don’t see where this ties in.
Sorry to go a bit on a philosophical tirade there, I just saw some assumptions there and wanted to make sure my point was clear.
I’m not out making a RedCoin competitor. If anything, I’m using its technology to make a hobbyist’s coin, the same way I’d do a custom Emacs theme for a university. Translation: not a threat.
Always, and appreciated. Best to all.
