Etherium is doing another fork. This one looks to be about smoothing transaction fees and making miners obsolete. Maybe they will actually eventually make it "eco friendly" and instead you'll just have to convince the richest guy on the network your transaction is legit.:waycool:

You see, it was inevitable that human CEOs would become obsolete. With a human, there will always be, well, some humanity left in them that cannot be eliminated or selected against. There is always a possibility, however small, that they may in fact not make perfectly optimal financial decisions for the firm when faced with moral externalities. But with a virtual CEO? Oh baby, the sky is the limit! Whoever puts on the mask is an extra step removed from their human culpability and even better ,they're publicly anonymous!

Eventually AI technology will advance enough that we can remove the human behind the mask. Imagine the AI algorithm, coded entirely in Etherium smart contracts on the blockchain attached to an NFT of the virtual CEO's likeness. A future where AI CEOs act as independent agents, capable of being hired by different firms. The best programmed AI CEOs will be in high demand and make their creators fabulously wealthy while the poorly programmed CEOs will bring shame upon their family. The market forces at play will eventually produce the optimal CEO program and usher in the Age of Aquarius.

The future is bright.

the lawyer who supposedly forced them to tweet the monkey loving was also a joke account

the monkeys loving was not actually a NFT. the whole thing is a fakepost making fun of NFTers, by pretending to be slightly more ridiculous than NFTers already are

the entire thing was fake from the very beginning.

why do people put .eth on the end of their twitter name

i mean i guess it warns others not to interact but surely it's not intended to be so altruistic

I think they do that because it's their website or wallet address in the .eth domain. If you aren't already aware there are several crypto specific domain names now, and you can own them on the blockchain!

im blessed that the closest ive come to a real life interaction with a bitcoiner was someone coming in to the tech place i worked at in 2014 and asking if the laptop her brother sent in to be recycled a few months ago was still around since he realised he left some bitcoins on it.
it wasn't:allears:

I'm cursed that my brother has gotten really into crypto and messages me bullshit about it nonstop. He hasn't gotten to NFTs yet but I know it's coming. Naturally he's also gotten sucked into Tesla BS. He's really excited for the cybertruck. I told him it's vaporware and never coming to which he says, "vaporware is like crypto so I like it 😁"

It's hard discovering your family member is an idiot late in life.
