Check out my true real life short story "BIG MOUTH" in the latest and greatest edition of RAW's "The Walls Came Tumbling Down."
Out now from Hilaritas Press!  :fnord: :fnord: :fnord:

So, it's been a couple years.  I guess P3nt doesn't hang around here much anymore, but, whatever.

Couple of years and anyone not accepting crypto payments will be finding it as hard to turn a trade as anyone not accepting card payments does now. Couple of years. You can hold me to that.
Wrong.  :lulz:

Not only is it unnecessary to accept crypto, but it's still practically impossible to buy anything with it.  Why?  Because no one wants to.  The transaction fees are still absurd, and the very nature of cryptocurrencies ("be your own bank!") means that you're far more susceptible to losing everything to a typo, or having your wallet drained by hackers.  It's harder to use than money in practically every way. Cryptocurrency's main use is as a speculative instrument, and as a means for siphoning funds from Greater Fools.

I've been watching cryptocurrency for the last couple years, doing a bit of research, and I've frankly fallen in love with it.  Not as a store of value, or a means of exchange, but because it's such a hilarious, stupid, obvious disaster.

Bitcoin is burning a vast amount of electricity to achieve a mind-staggeringly abysmal 3 transactions per second.  Blockchain has been dismissed by everyone with an ounce of technical knowledge as useless.  DeFi has never realized its promise of being integrated with global finances; rather, it's only been used to trade shitcoins with other shitcoins, and maybe sell the occasional ugly monkey jpeg.  The layers of scams upon scams transcends Charles Ponzi's wildest dreams.

Over the last several months, all of that is coming to fruition.  Cryptocurrency exchanges are going bankrupt, the biggest fraudsters are being charged and arrested, and governments are stepping in to impose regulations (if not outright ban them).

It will yet take a while for the dust to settle, but settle it will...and then society will move onto a different get-rich-quick scheme.

Anyone holding dynocurrency a couple of years from now is in serious danger of getting burned and, even before then, you're in for a hell of a heatwave.
Also wrong.

It's settling down, reducing in volatility by the minute. Another couple of years and you'd be as well buying bonds.
Well, that aged well.

Bitcoin is shaping up to be the new gold. It's also going to be the new gold standard
:roll: :lol:

If I'm right then it'd make sense to at least hedge some of your savings in this space. Yanno, just in case?
Very wrong.

I found out today that a friend of most(!) of my friends, someone I didn't know, was detransitioned to death. The story is available if you want to find it. It's not mine to tell.

That said? The people who did this should have holes put in their fucking heads and be dragged through the streets in sacks.

Transphobes are murderers whether or not they raise a hand, or even say a fucking /word/ against us. Their hands are all red with fucking blood. Their souls are withered husks.

I am of the mind now that the only option is overwhelming, outrageous violence. If they walk away under their own power they must be maimed beyond recognition. Take fingers. Gouge eyes. Embody the Doom Slayer, because there is no other god of sufficient wrath.

And I'm done with the fucking cis "allies". I haven't been able to go two days without running into Nazis pulling guns on us in public, a new expose of just how fucking stacked against us fucking everything is, and now a dead girl I never met or heard of, but was only a SINGLE FUCKING JUMP removed from.

This isn't even the /first/. Last year, last fucking year, it was Elise Malory.

And what do the cis people in my life do? They sing to their stupid tiny dog that shits everywhere and bites all the other dogs for no reason, and they talk about how I have it /so good/ because I don't have a job (because of disability) and just laze around all day (false as fuck).

I have a hate like an oxyacetylene flame. I have a head full of names written in blood. I have enemies all around and no respite from hostility and violence. I have a community they're killing in plain fucking sight and no one even sheds a fucking tear.

If a transphobe has an unbroken bone in their body, it had better be because you're taking it for a FUCKING trophy. Good fucking night.

I think in her case asmr stands for Auditorily Subdued Murderous Rage.

Meanwhile a friend went to the anti-SFP (A Scottish christofascist group) protest and got scolded by the organisers for flipping them the bird because it might "antagonise" them.

Glad we understand the scale of the threat.

Cops watching Nazis, actual full blown swastika-flag-waving armed insurgent Nazis, point guns at queer people and just shrugging about it.

This shouldn't be a surprise to anyone here (I would 10000% think less of anyone surprised by it at this point), but it's a datapoint.

Acumen Nation's Gun Lover is the song you should listen to.

Hey, remember when a disabled autistic it/its furry transfem leaked the TSA no-fly list? Look what it found now!

Now will the NYT report on this? No. Of course not. Nor will any of the TERFy rags of the UK. This will have no broader repercussions at all. This will hurt no careers, it will do no damage, it will be buried with all the pomp and circumstance of a mouse turd in a cereal box.

But it's there.

yup. none of this requires a degree in journalism to find. read another article posing as news today which gleefully repeated anti-trans talking points from SEGM. who are they i wonder without any wonder, and yeah, this was on the first search page result for just "SEGM" without any additional terms:

journalism is under threat from its own ranks only - they don't want to acknowledge that war either
