“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 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

@Sapphicgiraffic @RobinHood actually sheeps, cause you wouldnt made beanie hat of off goats fleece

@Sapphicgiraffic @RobinHood Cryptobros think that IT engineers aren't real engineers, so they make godawful, unoptimized builds and then run unpatched Linux directly webfacing since using tech correctly is for plebs, not unicorn entrepreneurs like them. Fuck Bitcoin, but the only legit reason you should be mining crypto is because you have free gpu minutes at a rendering farm because you're literally already using dozens of GPUs for something else

but the lawnmower runs at full throttle; it's never allowed to go back to idle when mining.

@RobinHood i have never understood bitcoin more clearly than rn

@RobinHood Commodities futures but with an exponential carbon footprint and a percentage funds European and Mediterranean fascists.
