I listened to a clubhouse debate about real estate and it seems obvious to me that real estate goes toward zero because you can make more and repurpose existing uses.

Been browsing the threads on the Satoshi Nakamoto Institute...

Made me wonder: if someone had a software invention on the level of bitcoin in the year 2021, where would they announce it?

Seems like you'd want a place with a high signal to noise ratio. Want to generate high quality criticism, yes?

Also, once you solve DNS you still have a problem with IP addresses being centralized, yes?

How do you solve DNS without shitcoinery?

I don't know why, but I really enjoy reading nocoiner / precoiner HN comments on Bitcoin. A special blend of ignorance and confidence. It's a very similar to any discussion on HN, but because I know more about Bitcoin than most topics I understand the shape of the bullshit more easily. hackerdaily.io/25814995/commen
