so random schmuck today finds himself in the following situation: if he goes anywhere, taking uber, all his travel is in [some usage database].
if he visits any website, both amazon and cloudflare have records, which can even be compared. how's that for ECC asciilifeform !
obviously if he pays anyone anything that's tracked. and in his dumbass case, this includes bitcoin
which he buys via amazon instance > cloudflare and he spends via amazon instance > cloudflare.
might as well use fucking visa rather than all this wastage.
then when i say bitcoin is not for the poor, people are like ‘oh noooo…’
why waste all the fucking cycles to do visa poorly ?
