This is my response to @The-A-Man from a different thread as it has gone quite a way away from the original topic:
I’ve seen a lot of discussions and work and projects on exchanges between mutual credit over the last couple of years to address those and I do see it as a problematic issue but only one that can try to be solved instead of simply saying it won’t, and I believe that’s why I’m still spending time replying because throughout my life I hear people saying it can’t be done yet it is those who just get on and do it that prove the nay-sayers wrong, and what I see and feel from your replies, whatever your stance, is you’re saying things can’t be done when they are, and your only arguments seem to be random straw men examples like a youtube million views which, for a start has a foundation in the “let’s get as many views as possible” world, and one of earning “money” from it yet what I see in this community is people solving problems that are currently problematic more than they could be because of the current monetary system.
Take a community where they don’t have youtube or give a hoot about how many views they get, but instead they are focused more on collaborating better without the intervention of the “big boys” of tech who want to on the outside “help” these people yet it’s all about control. That’s what holochain enables, and whilst it can also be used for the opposite and even if deals are being done where it is, it doesn’t mean the good can’t be done too, so again I don’t understand your stance. If you believe something is a certain way just go ahead and build it, that’s what I’m doing and many others, whereas what I see here is you saying “it has to be my way or the highway”, for example your project idea for this currency, yet once again it’s a single point of failure because it’s your idea and someone else won’t like it. Just like holochain, and everything else. So, again with respect, I don’t see the point in your arguments, if you believe in something just go ahead and build it - the market always decides as Gary Vaynerchuk correctly says. A business starts with a paying customer, not a product.
