Trust is a humanitarian value cultivated by a dynamic meritocracy designed to strengthen our evolutionary excellence. Few produce such evolutionary values, and thus trust must be unevenly distributed proportionately to the discriminate delivery of those values. The higher-order reason why cryptocurrencies, in which trust is implicitly and without regard to evolutionary merit distributed evenly, are fundamentally flawed and poised to damage humanity, save for the lure of short to evolution’s “greater-fools”.
Given the above, one ought also not to confound a currency with an economy, as in consequence with cause. Or you too will sink into the debilitating depravity of reason that imprisons many. Get your fix from The bitcoin before the horse.
