“Imagine you could keep your lawnmower idling in your driveway, and every once and a while a Beanie Baby popped of the tailpipe”
Me, explaining bitcoin
@RobinHood This is literally the best way to explain bitcoin I've ever heard.
@RobinHood this makes me understand it less
@RobinHood the esperanto of currencies
@RobinHood You can't even cuddle the Beanie Baby it pops out when the value crashes
@RobinHood “now imagine that, instead of letting it idle, you could perform meaningful work with the lawnmower instead, like mowing lawns, and earn real currency that you could use to earn several beanie babies instead of just the one, while using less time and fuel than if you just let it idle. but most people choose to let theirs idle instead of doing meaningful work because they look down on physical laborers.”
and that’s basically the cryptocurrency marketplace
@RobinHood "But why would you do that?" "Exactly."
@RobinHood everytime someone in a boosted supra two-steps younget paid
@RobinHood This is poetic. May I share it over on ?
good that we have proof of stake nowadays.
but the lawnmower runs at full throttle; it's never allowed to go back to idle when mining.
@RobinHood *gently hodls beanie babies*
@RobinHood i have never understood bitcoin more clearly than rn
@RobinHood Aaannd 'follow'.
A cool and chill place for cool and chill people.
