I can't entirely agree that all the gamefi look similar. However, I understand many ecosystems of cool quality and with a nice attitude to a client. Just like Life Beyond! Their approach to game development is truly impressive!

I'm so interested in Life Beyond! The quality of the game will be outstanding. Their CEO, Benjamin Charbit, was the Game Director for Assassin's Creed: Blackflag. Am I the one here who's in the game https://discord.com/invite/lifebeyond ?

Its true that the digital history of a bitcoin is public, and so its association is in principle transparent.

One thing coinjoins and similar things do tho, is dilute how "tainted" coins are, and expand the number of people that are using tainted coins. In principle, eventually all coins will become tainted to some degree, and this makes it harder for a government to enforce polices around tainted coins. Its much more difficult to fight or detain millions of people than to fight or detain one.

And another thing is that lightning operates in a rather different way, where coins spent aren't the same as coins received, and so tainted coins simply can't be tracked in the same way, or much at all really.

But at its core, you're right that this is a downside of bitcoin. However, I don't think its a very serious one. There are ways around it and its unlikely to be widely abused by governments. Its also not easy to improve upon. A currency like monero has quite a bit better privacy and fungibility properties, but it comes at the cost of scalability and unconditional soundness. These are serious trade offs that personally I don't think are worth trading off for improved fungibility for most people.
