False equivalence fallacy, otherwise known as “apples and oranges.” Do we really want as many ForkFests as there are cryptocurrencies? And by pointing out the problem, am I really becoming one-with-the-central-bankers? Puh-leeze, you libertarian dummies!
apples, oranges, but the analogy was your call for central planning.
If a central bank offered you a crypto to replace the dollar, would you accept?
I do believe you’re avoiding the question, SCM. Again…“Do we really want as many ForkFests as there are cryptocurrencies?” You suggested we do…
I have zero problems with a million forkfests. What I have a problem with is a central authority that wants control of them.
Now you may answer my question. If a central bank offered you a crypto to replace the dollar, would you accept?
A million Forkfests means chaos, dysfunction and inability to usefully perform an intended function. There’s nothing inherently immoral, irrational or anti-liberty about central authorities. Apple has one. So does General Motors. And virtually all other productive endeavors (where stuff like energy and food come from). As for the question whether I would accept crypto in place of dollars if a central bank offered it to me…the answer is no. Central banks are not to be trusted. They are not—wait for it—“productive endeavors”!
Well each forkfest can have their own central authority to manage their own affairs and the best/most competitive one, should help cancel out the little ones, (hopefully, not with the help of a bigger central authority (government) , just like apple, amazon, and google do in their “capitalist” space)
OK, so, how do you feel when the central banks are calling for a “digital currency”? I mean we “trusted” them with gold and silver. Two things that can’t be counterfeited as easily as something electronic, programmed by humans, could be.
They are using you (anarchists/libertarians) to help build THEIR system, Because they know you would NEVER of helped implement or accept a digital currency to begin with. You can’t be FREE by tying yourself to a device. (unless of course, you don’t mind being part of THEIR “digital economy”).

Are you guys not coming for Forkfest, too?
