Glad to see DHH slightly pulling his head out of his ass: https://world.hey.com/dhh/i-was-wrong-we-need-crypto-587ccb03
Exhibit 2 in the context of some(!) trucker funds being in custodial wallets and/or hard to liquidate.
What he's not noticing: the other funds, the option to just HODL through it (assuming the situation in Canada isn't permanent, the fact that a supply of Bitcoin that can't be sold on a KYC exchange will eventually meet demand.
And then he retweets this asinine thread, in which an AWS engineer claims that "Computationally cheap cryptographic currencies with privacy are actually a solved problem."
He then points to Chaumian E-cash (which did not solve the double-spend problem for fucks sake) and digs even deeper by referring to zero knowledge systems, without pointing out that every current efficient design is either a trusted setup or too experimental cryptography for money.
