I got some Stellar Lumens for free a long time ago just for having Keybase ... And now they're worth $500 🤷‍♂️🤷‍♂️🤷‍♂️

Honestly... Cryptocurrency just seems like a bunch of stocks tracking the potential for cryptocurrency, rather than actually being used for anything else to their purpose.

I don't know of we've moved the needle at all towards an actually useful currency, but I'll take my money and donate it to something when the market turns.

@funnylookinhat We should just call them “cryptostocks” at this point, because the word “currency” implies... y’know... stability? It won’t be a currency until people are comfortable writing and signing leases for X BTC/month, and the like.


@Ateriath Hahaha yes true! Crypto-trading-cards is what I like to think of them as!
