Cryptocurrency (and related fuckery)

You may be seeing some noise in your timelines about a private “space agency” offering free seats on a Blue Origin flight to folk from countries such as Nigeria & India through a competition & public vote.

Such generosity & such a lot of media attention :face_with_rolling_eyes:

Take a bit of a dive though & this tech bro word salad pops up on the webpage of a VC firm they work with :dollar:

As always, follow the money.

“Democratisation of space” it ain’t :grimacing:

While some Granbury residents are fiercely protesting the mine

There is no “mining” going on, it is not a “mine,” there are no “miners,” nobody there is engaged in any productive activity

Cryptocurrency is a form of gambling, they’re running a cybernetic casino :slot_machine: :slot_machine: :slot_machine:
