    Dunno man (I assume you’re a guy, please correct me if I’m wrong), the link in the original post mentions a lot of other blockchains that seem to have all sorts of problems.

    Also, waiting impatiently for your insightful take on blacklisted wallets.

      A quick glance at the link only shows ethereum and solana related news as you know already ethereum has had a history of censorship since it’s inception and solana isn’t even a decentralised blockchain it utilizes a handful of beefy nodes to achieve consensus neither projects’ developers have ever really been known for being true believers in decentralisation in the fullest so none of them can be seen as guides of the best in the space.

      Also, waiting impatiently for your insightful take on blacklisted wallets.

      blacklisted wallets are terrible you can connect your own front end to the smart contract if you’re technical/use another front end to the smart contract done by someone else if you’re not technical/use another defi protocol

        How unfortunate that even freedom-loving cryptobros allow their projects to do such horrible things. Who woulda thunk it! It’s almost as if it’s more about financial stakes than “freedom” or whatever. 🤔

          I literally just said that they’re aren’t that and it’s a mistake to think of them as that the space like everywhere else is full of people with different values and to some it’s completely ok if projects do hardforks for bailouts because they don’t care about decentralisation

            No true cryptobro, gotcha.

            But also, it’s a mistake to think of the banking sector as a single thing, as that space like everywhere is full of people with different values. Right?

              some people like crypto to make big bucks

              some people like crypto because cool cryptography and decentralised solutions are interesting to figure out because they’re naturally inefficient

              some people like crypto because it’s really cheap to send money back home to Nigeria

              some people like crypto because government blocked them from the formal banking system

              some people think we will all use crypto

              some people think we won’t use all crypto but view it as another option to have if hyperinflation happens

                And yet somehow they all refuse to deal with the scammers in their midst, and many seem to react to any suggestion that this might be a problem with denialism, name-calling, and whataboutism.

                  how can I and other ethical people possibly deal with all the scammers in the space? can you stop all criminals from using your national currency to do illegal acts?

                    I can recognize this is a serious problem. I can push politicians to help regulate it. I can (and I have) work with NGOs and journalists to reveal corrupt banksters. I can then demand them being punished.

                    Or, I could call people names and try to change the subject to problems in some other kind of system.

                    One of these is ethical. The other is called “being an enabler”.
