@dammkewl it does... and it's also shit
@sir lol, point me to this mythical specification you claim to exist.
@sir whitepaper != specification
@dammkewl fair enough. Bitcoin is still shit, though, this just makes it more so. Doesn't absolve Rust
@sir What about Bitcoin is it, that has you calling it that?
@dammkewl the code is terrible, it's a huge waste of electricity, it doesn't meet its stated goal, and it makes GPUs unobtainable for many people. And it doesn't have a spec.
I can't comment about the code (no pun intended)
The waste of electricity is a strawman argument
GPU's are only used for shitcoins since years
But i'm glad we agree it doesn't have a spec 😂 🍻
@dammkewl the waste of electricity is not a strawman argument. Electricity isn't free, it comes with a cost to society and drives up power for people doing productive things. GPUs might only be used by idiots but that doesn't mean *coin hasn't driven up the prices. And I failed to mention that bitcoin brings out the worst in people!
@sir Hah more strawman arguments. I don't think we're going to agree in this one though. Thanks for the fun talk!
