  • crypto has pretty much hit critical mass for now because there’s too much regulation that has rendered it pointless. The creator of bitcoin established it under a fake name, which tells everyone everything they need to know about the true purpose of cryptocurrencies, and why they’re now a zombie.

    • I have sad it before and I will say it now.

      Crypto will be ‘killed’ by governments interference

      – controlling
      – taxing
      – other random BS
