Whats Bunker/tech/'s opinion on bitcoin?

also Is the bubble gunna burst?
alt-shite shit, popular with neo-nazis
i wouldn't touch it with a ten feet pole
It's either a speculative bubble with no added value, or what value it does have comes from exploited labor in the black market (drugs etc). no thanks
Idk guys I made huge money with bitcoin while
working my ass off for almost nothing.

Bitcoin coming from exploited labar like dealing drugs? Wtf dude, it allowed a lot of drug dealer to
actually live little more stress-free and make more money (aka make enough money for the risks it involve).

It allowed some of us to make great things without any gov restriction.
You know a comrade living in a country living a revolution? Wire him some btc for the cause.

Now I have enough money to actually live with enough food and heat AND fight.
I know it sound capitalist as fuck, but guys, how do you want to make thinks happen NOWDAYS without money? As shitty as it sound we need money to start anything.

BTC was the start, now drug dealers switched to monero, I don't care if btc go up again if it's a bubble or anything.
The fact is, I bought some "as if" I needed more anonymous money, and now I have a shitTon of money to give to struggling comrades and to do actions.
My gov doesn't even know I have littleral stacks of money waiting to serve us here.

Don't spit on anything just because some neonazi have some randomly.

So what? Dealing drugs is being self-employed. Now don't get me wrong, I think they should all be legalised and don't have a problem with dealing or using drugs. But attempts to liberate yourself from taxes and surveillance are fundamentally petty-bourgeois: they serve the interests of the small and non-exploiting class of self-employed people, not the interests of the workers as a whole.

Further back from dealers in the supply chain, at some point, are workers who harvest kush or who produce stuff. It's their exploitation I was referring to, not your work. If cryptocurrencies have any added value, it's from the contribution of both your and crucially their labour time.

This is entirely leaving aside the exploitation of other workers like prostitutes, but that's also true with regular currency: exploitation condemns both the light economy and the shadow economy in the same way. Just as there is no ethical consumption under capitalism, there is no ethical production either.
