they were a running joke for a long time because brands would attempt to shoehorn them into the public consciousness as a worse version of a URL

as a result, it's not exactly unfair to make a lazy joke about people not liking them

these days itís more of a ďoh right those existĒ thing, and theyíre less seen on advertising and more as shortcuts to online support in paper manuals so people are less hostile to them

No disagreement but it seems like the actual show has nothing to do with crypto at all, and it's only a "crypto" show because they're going to be selling NFT gifs ont he side.

So gently caress Dan Harmon is what youíre saying.

Also more people deleting their poo poo to try and make their NFTs worth something, forgetting itís the internet and as soon as they announce theyíre deleting it itíll be downloaded and mirrored all over the place.

Has this been posted yet? Ethereum says proof-of-stake is coming soon (I know they've been saying that for years, but the microscope over its power usage seems to be motivating them)

Theyíll get a few headlines from saying this then go back to not implementing proof of stake for another year because no-one is going to follow up.

I love that they're threatening legal action if people don't return this currency built on its untraceable nature

yahoo finance article says this is happening right as gold prices start to go up, so it could be the maximum comedy of all the hedge funds getting out of crypto and back into something real and all the musk diciples realising how tiny they are

also binance have apparently disabled withdrawls and a bunch of other crypto trading sites are down lmao

fun from the world of esports, a bunch of orgs are getting involved in crypto and TSM has made a supposed $210m sponsorship deal for its naming rights with a crypto exchange i've never heard of, only they can't use that name in the 2 biggest games they're involved with and this was known when the deal was made, so this is almost certainly just a money laundering deal

when someoneís a terrible poster and equivocating quoting their posts with doxxing I think itís quite right that they be mocked out of a thread

ďyouíre doxxing meĒ seems to have become a thing among crypto guys, someone in another thread said he was a Ďbelieverí in crypto and said I was stalking him when I quoted that saying it was incredibly unsurprising
