Cryptocurrency is an abject disaster https://drewdevault.com/2021/04/26/Cryptocurrency-is-a-disaster.html
I can argue anologously that CI is a disaster because it gives bad actors access to free #Bitcoin. Or because it's used by botnets!
Maybe DNA sequencing should never have been invented because it can be used to create deadly viri!
I use Bitcoin every day and I wouldn't know what to do if it didn't exist. Save in gold? Gold is a real worse polluter than Bitcoin is.
And even in non-capitalist and free societies, currencies might be useful for performing international trade. Despite of gold's violent history, gold has also been used in peacetime.
I believe that in a truly free digital society, a digital bullion like #Bitcoin won't be needed. But we're not there yet. And for now it's better than the alternatives.
