The metaverse is a pile of shit. Even assuming it is something people want long term, they don’t want what is being made. People don’t want to move to Facebook-burg and be stuck with no amenities but the company store.
Also there were gold atms which heralded the return to hard currency from fiat right?
i will also point out that there’s an atm down the street that has a $9 service fee. Just because some grifter sees a chance to make a buck doesn’t mean that’s the future knocking on your door.
I’ll be more excited when making it convenient doesn’t just translate to being rid of the bitcoin you have for a more recognized cash equivalent. Like tell me when we have the first big company offering refunds in crypto when you paid in crypto.
While that’s a good defense against cyber criminals on your personal accounts, I think the real worry here is attacks on infrastructure.
Its been well covered here and in other places, but our power grid is extremely vulnerable.
What about water, and NG? And other services?
Loss of those things tend to bring society to a grinding halt.
There's actually much larger lists than just that. Even bridgewater mall has crypto atms.
There's a reason every major credit card and payment software is making it assesible. It's because there is a demand.
We're hitting a world where people are exploring a "meta verse." Crypto will be a huge part of it.
I'm not saying dump your life savings in, but I would be surprised if it doesn't continue to grow.
