I don’t know anything about The Hoff’s coin but something about seeing David Hasselhoff as a Roman Emperor brightened my morning …
Makes me think about why crypto weirdness is such a good thing: Like, yeh, I want to (and like to) make money but having fun along the way is more important than just having a laugh.
I like that crypto can be super weird: from PotCoin and porn coins to TrumpCoin and PutinCoin. I don’t just like it, I think its actually important. Yeh, yeh it sounds preachy but stay with me …
Humor, by definition, is irreverent, and irreverence is the most frightening thing in the world to autocracy and to the autocrat. Irreverence strikes at the heart of their power, their power to intimidate, their power to control through fear, and ultimately their power to control, to hoard and to monopolistically distribute resources.
Isn’t that the whole point of crypto? Democracy? To put the power and responsibility of currency in the currency holders’ hands? I know it solves real world issues but, at its core, solving those challenges stabs at the heart of governmental and corporate control.
I think we all should have more fun: it’s good for us and good for the world.
But, enough my rambling morning thoughts … enjoy David Hasselhoff as a Roman Emperor:
(Have an awesome day all)
