Nothing like reading a

Nothing like reading a "non-fiction" book, thinking that it's pretty good and expanding my thinking, then running into a couple of paragraphs that talk positively about cryptocurrency (specifically Ethereum).

Not quite throw it at the wall disgusted, but certainly taking the rest of the ideas with a little more skepticism than I was...

I've had a positive real world experience with cryptocurrency, former $work was having issues getting paid for work and materials out of both South and West Africa because of banking and government bureaucracy. And they were often government agencies/utilities. But they could get cash, turn it into bitcoin and send it in > $10k USD chunks.

and then it became an investment and money laundering tool..
