#GM06 – Blockchain Tech Isn’t ‘Fetch’

GM Bitcoiners,

Why the obsession with ‘blockchain tech’? 

It’s pretty simple, really… 

Bitcoin has been enormously successful at separating money and state as a decentralised cryptocurrency.

It’s also designed so that no one party can control it.

So rather than fully supporting a revolutionary technology that benefits the world, many individuals give Bitcoin a head nod, then market ‘blockchain tech’ as some all-encompassing technological advance that can improve ‘anything’… including their own token/altcoin/ project. 

Bitcoin is fighting to be hard money. 

‘Crypto’ is fighting to take hard money.

Marketers use these buzz words to add a veil of trust and credibility on the back of Bitcoin’s name and reputation. This also piggybacks into more ‘innovative’ projects and technologies…

What’s so special about an NFT?

What’s so special about Bitcoin?

It actually has a use case that’s changing the world. 

The ‘blockchain’ part of Bitcoin wasn’t new. It was old. It was just used in the right way, with the right pieces. 

Outside of this decentralised money puzzle… it’s actually not all that useful, and in most cases, you would be better off using a centralised system. 

“Stop trying to make ‘blockchain tech’ happen; it’s NOT going to happen!”
