Jack seems to back cryptocurrency—and Bitcoin specifically—as day-to-day cash transaction instruments…
…Though I would still personally weigh Jack’s position on BTC against the positions of career economists such as Paul Krugman and Nassim Taleb etc.
Yes yes both fiat currency (currency backed by governments/nation-states) and cryptocurrency (currency backed by cryptography & blockchain records), all only have value because *we think* they have value.
Fact remains though, it’s easier to buy groceries using fiat currency.
The transaction costs of purchasing groceries using Bitcoin, Ethereum, or any other cryptocurrency is still way too prohibitively expensive compared to conventional currency.
No matter how many pizzas have been bought by BTC in the past.
I’d love to have the Engage app, and use it on my main Twitter account.
Not that I’m a “celebrity”, but that yes at times (if not often) reading the Twitter timeline leaves me feeling quite upset.
…But thing is I don’t have an iOS device, and I loathe to get just one more gadget or replace any of the ones I already use, just for the “pleasure” of “engaging” a version of Twitter that’s somewhat less “upsetting”.
I’ll wait till they release an Android version. (Or a Web-app version, maybe…)
