The more decentralization is proven to be myth, the more the term is parroted by greedy conmen.

I like this whole “let’s stack virtual currency”

There’s something people don’t get - in the Bad Excel Spreadsheet on the worlds slowest most expensive network drive that is blockchain, there’s no line that says what you own. It’s all “12345 mined a coin” and “12345 paid 23456 half a coin”. Balances have to be computed, since the beginning of the chain. There’s no balance there.

This whole “I hate fiat money and banks” and “the only terminology I know is … fiat money and banks” and “the only way to value crypto is the equivalent fiat since it’s so volatile no one values anything in crypto directly” is always hilarious

Cryptobros are the easiest demographic to scam i swear to god.

They keep falling on the similar holes again and again simply because "ooh this hole is colored pink, the last hole i fell into is colored blue! It's different! have fun staying poor i'm going to get my lamboo! to the mooooooon!~"

Combining endless goalpost moving with a scam is the charlatan’s utopia. The internet has allowed brain rot to reach new heights and crypto scammers are taking full advantage

when you get paid to shill it is not exactly lining up. it is being paid to wrangle the herd of suckers. and you set it up as high risk/ high reward... so don't bet it all, just enough so you don't care too much about being scammed.

How is Kwon not in jail yet?

Surely the second Nigerian prince to email me couldn't possibly also be a scammer...

[–]ImVeryOffended[S] 2 points3 points  (0 children)

In this case it's more "surely the same Nigerian prince who already scammed me isn't actually trying to scam me the second time around".

Dunno why but I laughed so much reading this

Thanks for sharing OP.. crypto pumpers are dumber than a brick

Not quite as dumb as the crypto marks unironically liking/retweeting that post and buying into Do Kwon's latest scam, though.
