Money for Nothing (Vicky Osterwell/Real Life)

lol - excellent. i enjoy the tone of that piece. 

This effect is only strengthened the more people there are agreeing that the matter at hand is “cool,” “interesting,” or “complicated” — a process of mass, self-inflicted intellectual gaslighting.

Nonetheless, if the popular press is full of explainers “clarifying” what a “very complicated” investment phenomenon is all about, hide your wallet: You are being shilled into a game of Three-Card Monte.

NFTs are so fundamentally offensive as a concept when I was reading some article giving a primer about what they are and how they work I just gave up and said "man, this is so fucking stupid."  L

raise the minimum wage at an excruciatingly slow pace over the next few years? lol absolutely not that's too much. buying a pixel for like a billion dollars? hell yeah man, fucking Stonks dude. s

The dumbest trend of 2020s (so far). I feel like I should just unfollow every label and artist who pushes this bullshit.

wonderful. now I'm starting to feel repulsed by patreon for how it's creator praises facebook, twitter, and the rest of the brainwashing machine for "trying to be the best at getting creators paid" and says that now 75% of kids aged 6 to 17 years old want to be an online video creator like it's an amazing thing while calling it a cute "naive optimism". where the hell are we headed?
 

 

this guy loves the smell of his own farts... or drinks his own piss.. or both. 

headed? lot's of people making shit fighting for attention on line. people soaking it up and being tribal about it. 

feedback loop? wtf. "passion economy".. ugh. 

how many music tech youtubers do shoutouts to their followers to thank them for the new couch they put in the studio? all of them i think.

Came across tezos and hic et nunc which runs on proof of stake rather than proof of work so uses a fraction of the energy.

Put a couple of bits up to have a play around with the technology.

Decentralisation could be a great thing if done right.
But yeah, popped into a cople of the bigger NFT discords for research and it's pretty gross what's going on.

To be fair, that tweet is quoting an article that was corrected shortly after its publication two years ago. Bitcoin still uses a ludicrous amount of energy in terms of its user base (far more than fiat currency), but the stat quoted is vastly exaggerated and completely untrue.

the most recent thing i read said bitcoin is equal to the amount of energy used by Argentina. not sure if that's still true or if it was true at the time.

real question: could they find a way to create a currency out of the act of planting trees or something like that? do altcoins neccessarily need to come into existence by way of massive cpu energy expenditure?

there is one, but currently in its infancy and more about trees you smoke for medical purposes.

"What [investors] do is they buy the coin and as it gets utilied by the pharmaceutical industry, or, maybe one day, it might be even be by law that you have to buy it through this. For the people that bought that coin, the demand goes up that that coin goes up.

"As of 2022, my company is the largest producer of medical marijuana in the world. If I was to force all of my customers, from your pharmaceutical people down to your Joe Bloggs, to use my cryptocurrency, for example. This coin will go through the roof. And eventually, the coin would be a marijuana-backed coin.

"At the minute the service that it does is very medical. Obviously, the reason that I bought into the company is because yes, I want to push more to the medical marijuana."

also, maximillian white is an investor so you know its going to be lit

fiat currency requires the largest militaries on earth and exploitation on an unthinkable scale.  it requires coups and assassination of leaders threatening fiat currency.  this statement you made is absurd to me.  when leaders of countries threaten US petrodollar dominance, all of a sudden they get murdered and their plans cancelled.  the vast apparatuses necessary to make that happen require far more energy than bitcoin.  yes, even in terms of the user base.

could the technology behind NFT's, or whatever it's called that identifies a digital artifact as the original, not serve some other purpose, like identifying a digital document as the original? like a digital contract or something? I had a discussion with someone recently about NFT's, and we both agreed the concept of paying thousands for some stupid jpeg is ridiculous. but it came up that this sort of technology could be implemented in other avenues. 

and apologies if this was already discussed in the past 12 pages...I saw this thread again and this came to mind.

      It is now very important that all internet-using people know how to communicate securely, even over insecure channels like gmail, and with no fear of being spyed upon by e.g. the NSA. Fortunately there is a way to do this. It is called PGP.
       
      This thread is a brief explanation of PGP and how to use it, with an interactive component. Your challenge is to send me an encrypted message!
       
      HOW PUBLIC KEY CRYPTO WORKS (VAGUELY)
       
      Everyone makes their own public key and private key. You keep the private key to yourself, but advertise the public key widely (website, email signature, etc.), so that anyone who wants to message you securely uses your public key. The encrypted message can only be read by the person with the associated private key, namely, yourself.
       
      Remarkably, this allows you to communicate securely with complete strangers who you've never met before, without exchanging a secret key.
       
      HOW TO DO IT (in 5 minutes)
       
      1. First, download the software. By googling "PGP client" you can find an assortment; I prefer gpg4win for Windows. Macs might try GPGtools. My tutorial will focus on gpg4win, but the steps will be similar for other clients. Worst case scenario, you have to read someone else's tutorial.
       
      2. Open Kleopatra.
       
      3. File, New Certificate, create an OpenPGP key pair.
       
      4. Enter your details, and in Advanced Settings chooseRSA 4096 bit (for maximal security).
       
      5. Create the key. Make sure to use a long (>16) password which is generated randomly using special characters. random.org has a generator you can use, but I recommend KeePass as a generator and a way to store your passwords (so no memorization needed).
       
      6. Now, from my experience you may want to close and restart Kleopatra at this point, because usually it doesn't immediately list your new key. You want to see, in the main interface, the key with your name, email, etc.
       
      What to post here (to complete the challenge)
       
      1. First, you want to right click the key you've created, and click "Export Certificate". This makes an .asc text file (which may be opened e.g. with WordPad) containing your public key. It will look like the block of text at the bottom of this post. This is the public key; other people need to see it in order to communicate to you securely. Now, post your public key in this thread (as I've done).
       
      2. Second, you need to practice by sending me a message. To do that, copy/paste my public key (which is below) into a blank text document, and save it as a .asc file. Then, in Kleopatra, go to Import Certificates, and select that file. Once my key is imported, you may send me an encrypted message. First, type the message you want into a .asc file. Then in Kleopatra, go to file, sign/encrypt files. Choose the file, choose encrypt and select "Text output (ASCII armor)", next, select my name as who you want to encrypt to. Voila! Kleopatra will make a file which contained the encrypted message. Place the encrypted message
       
      3. If you did everything correctly, I am the only person in the world who can read your message (with the private key corresponding to my public key). When I read the message, I will write a response and send an encrypted message back using your posted public key. To read it, you will go to File, Decrypt/verify files, and the rest should be obvious by now.
       
       
      --------------------------------
      I'm anxiously awaiting your responses! Please tell me if anything is unclear in the above, or if you have any questions.
       
      Here is my public key:
