Starting today we are reviewing if and how our current policy on crypto donations fits with our climate goals. And as we conduct our review, we will pause the ability to donate cryptocurrency.
I am happy for whatever part I played in getting them to rescind that terrible decision.
So I hope that after they "conduct their review", the conclusion they reach is the obvious one: "Bury it in the desert. Wear gloves."
Please read the most recent thing I wrote about crypto grifters: "How The Cryptobros Have Fallen; or, the through-line from Assassination Politics to monkey JPEGs."
One of my favorite overall explanations of this nonsense is Blockchain's Two-Flavored Appeal: "Not surprisingly, the most enthusiastic bitcoin and blockchain proponents are the ones who understand neither databases nor economics."
Also highly relevant is "Cooling the mark out" an article specifically about antivaxxers, but also applicable to people who have been taken in by the cryptocurrency grift. They must continue to recruit others into the con even when it doesn't benefit them financially because that's the only way to save face.
And, of course I also recommend the entirety of my "Dunning-Krugerrands" tag.
