This article is great.
I always find it interesting that many of the harsh criticisms of cryptocurrency can be said of traditional currency and other assets. In the interview he even stated that the crypto world is speeding through the growing pains traditional markets had when they were not regulated.
But now traditional currencies are regulated and no longer suffer from those problems, but cryptocurrencies are going through the same problems causing quite a few problems.
It’s probably because he’s jealous. To the moon!
You forgot the /s, RIP
Damn it, I was hoping that it was obvious :(
anyone who thinks the stock and bond markets to be a positive sum game have skipped the last 100 years of financial history :)
It depends. For the stock market investor it is basically another way to gamble with the money, but for the companies getting the money it can be a very good source for bootstrapping needed investments. Of course only if it is used for such and not only to pay off extreme profits by early VC investors or founders.
What I do with my own time and money does not concern Mr Nicholas Weaver.
It absolutely does, because if you’re dabbling in crypto, it affects others too

But it’s true. I don’t need to justify how and why I spend my money.
You don’t need to, but it would be healthy.
Why are you taking this guy’s opinion so weirdly personal?
It’s the attitude I have a problem with: some people are so arrogant that they think it’s ok to decide for others.
I don’t think anyone is deciding for you. Someone commenting on a subject doesn’t inherently imply they’re making decisions for the people related to said subject.
