“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
and then you use the Beanie Babies to buy heroin
@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
@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
@RobinHood "But why would you do that?" "Exactly."
@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'.
@RobinHood Commodities futures but with an exponential carbon footprint and a percentage funds European and Mediterranean fascists.
@RobinHood your audience: imagine having a lawn.
@RobinHood Holy shit that’s good.
@RobinHood This is the most accurate analogy we've ever seen... o.o
A cool and chill place for cool and chill people.
