We also should ban cash as it is commonly used for criminal purposes.

Oh and credit cards, checks, bank transfers, and gift cards as they are commonly used for criminal purposes.

I know you're being sarcastic, but you're also absolutely correct. We really should ban cash (all forms of it).

The problem is that until our AI can take over all our jobs, getting rid of money would also cause our economy to collapse, as people wouldn't want to work anymore. How many people are willing to work hard every day tilling the soil and caring for livestock, if they're not getting anything for it? And how many people would starve to death, if farmers chose to only grow what they personally need?

So while we should ban cash, we can't just yet.

Crypto is cancer to the power grids and power consumption of countries, which causes all kinds of negative effects, this is the reason it should be banned everywhere.

Also top contenders for reasons to ban crypto would be the ridiculous additional strain it puts on the electronics supply chain and all of the additional e-waste generated along the way.

Do we remember not too long ago, the proposal of extremely strict rules for video hosting sites went through in EU because of the music industry ?

When politicians vote on such things, it wouldn't be a surprise if they see this proposal, and suddenly all CPU manufactorer have to remove the cache memory to sell the product legally 💩 :sneaky:
