Dont think you will get credit if you place pixels in the wrong spot. It only rewards you if you contribute to the community's layout. If you want credit so badly by placing pixels, actually take the time to look at the map. I keep messaging people that are changing it and putting in zero effort.

I don’t understand people’s obsession with this ghoul. Just because she spits some pro-crypto narratives, doesn’t mean she isn’t an evil hag. She’s a hedge fund shill who voted against market transparency and stricter regulation at every opportunity. Every single vote on anything that would reduce institutional obfuscation was met with a „no”, with reasoning coming down to „it isn’t needed”. Crown jewel of those was „more regulation isn’t needed because regulators should work with the tools they have”. Spoken by a fucking regulator. SHE ISN’T ON YOUR SIDE, PEOPLE. SHE’S USING CRYPTO TO SHIT ON GENSLER SO THAT SHE CAN ULTIMATELY REPLACE HIM AND PUSH SHIT THAT’S BENEFICIAL TO INSTITUTIONS.

Someone said they were disappointed I didn't reply, so here is my reply for better or worse. First, I want to say there is no such thing as an impoverished class, a lower class, a middle class, or an upper middle class. There are only two classes. Those that work for money, and those that live of wealth / the work of others. > When I see right wingers, they want the right to own arms (for everyone, not just themselves) they want lower taxes, they want less government. IOW, they want human freedom. Many of these things are social issues, or missunderstood issues (tax for example, taxes at this point essentially are used to leverage revenue towards debt.) In regards to freedom, if I wanted to be a smarmy bastard I would point out how America has the highest amount of a population incarcerated in the world, and how monopolostic companies spy on your every move, as well as your government. America is arguably the strongest police state / authoratarian society ever known to man. I won't be a smarmy bastard though, and just point out that "freedom" is a word people like to throw around without ever actually defining it. In many cases, "freedom" means increased rights for one segment of a population, and decreased rights for another. Que... Reproductive rights. This is entering some hot potato territory specific to the USA though... I just find it amusing that the loudest proponents of "freedom" also seem the most heavily invested in restricting actions of others. > Leftist ideologies, in general, have a unifying concept that a central government should run things. For example, minimum wage laws, and universal health care plans. This is funded, in general, by theft: the involuntary collection of taxes from the people, and by regulations, which empower corporations to crush small businesses. Minimum wage in the majority of America isn't even enough to survive on. If the all seeing eye of Sauron that is "trickle down economics" is so infallible, and these businesses are so successful, why do full time workers need subsidies like food stamps merely to... stay alive? I think many of your arguments are based on a fundamental missunderstanding of how society in the west is organized, who benefits the most from that organizational structure, and who is cast as the villain (poor people). All of these issues are way larger than buzz words tossed around like "lower taxes", "more freedom", or "less government". Capitalism in essence drives hoarding of wealth, the building of capital, and the more capital one has the easier it is to accumulate more of it while pushing others away. We literally have individual humans riding penis shaped rockets into space ***AS A SIDE HOBBY***, because regulations have been worn down so thin that there is virtually zero barrier to their accumulation of wealth, while the ceiling that working class people need to break through simply to enjoy a modicum of an okay life increasingly becomes harder and harder to break through. There is a working class, and a class that lives off the work of others. > Wage slavery is a direct consequence of socialism: corporations are created by regulatory capture, then workers get reduced wages and then pay taxes on top of their reduce wages to fund government programs which largely benefit the rich. Wage slavery is a direct consequence of a system that rewards the accumulation of capital. The more you have, the easier it becomes to exert your dominance on everything around you (including politics, people, and regulation). There is a sarcastic subreddit called r/latestagecapitalism, it pokes fun at the end game. There was a point in time where governments regulated businesses heavily, and everyone prospered. Under "capitalism" those businesses have slowly gained ever increasing piles of wealth, and used it to chip away at regulations and worker rights. Their pile of dragon gold is growing bigger by the day, and people like you and me are squabbling about the scraps outside of the cave, while arguing about whether we should worship the dragon or not.

Fellas, THE SEC IS ON THE RIGHT SIDE OF HISTORY— STOP THE HATE. They are building a RICO case against CEX’s and large traditional finance players who are actively using CEX’s/crypto to manipulate ALL financial markets. THIS HAS BEEN ELEVATED TO THE DOJ. FTX, BlockFi, Celsius, Binance, etc are ALL CONNECTED. Something BIG is in play and the “manipulators” are attempting to paint the SEC/DOJ/Gary G as the bad guys. If you take anything from this comment, please tread carefully in the crypto markets.

Hi there. I have some questions about collaboration with Side Protocol and also Innovation Fund. ​ 1.How will Side Protocol enable bridgeless inter-blockchain swaps between Nym's blockchain (Nyx) and Side's testnet (SIDE)? 2.How will the integration of Side Protocol alleviate the challenge of inter-blockchain liquidity for Nym users? 3.How will Side Protocol leverage the Nym Innovation Fund's investor network for fundraising and achieving a mainnet launch?

Wait, so Cardano will have a SIDE CHAIN, and that side chain will have ZK ROLLUPS. What kinda wizardry is this?

I believe that BTC will back the USD or treasuries in the future and that it was designed specifically by the NSA as a global adoption trojan horse for global equivalent USD adoption. Research the "Make a Mint" paper from 1996 which could have been the original concept for BTC before there was global internet to support it. Strangely this paper also includes a Japanese name in it. The Petro dollar is failing and is under attack by BRICS (the Saudis won't pump when we ask them to anymore) and China/Russia own shit loads of gold which we will not allow to surge in value. This is a somewhat conspiracy theory view, but I don't see any other alternatives to protect USD hegemony where the petrodollar is constantly under attack, from Libya, Iraq etc . It would be hilarious if we massively devalued gold and rug pulled the living sh*t out of the new BRICS currency reserves. The Chinese government has more Bitcoin than microstrategy even though they have banned it for their citizens- almost as if they suspect it could be covert from the US. Russia is beginning to mine Bitcoin also seemingly as a hedge. AS A SIDE NOTE... I MADE A SIMILAR POST ABOUT A MONTH AGO THAT HAS COMPLETELY DISAPPEARED WITHOUT A TRACE FROM REDDIT. NO HISTORICAL UPVOTE OR COMMENT NOTIFICATIONS, NOT IN MY POST HISTORY, NO "your comment has been moved/removed" NOTIFICATIONS JUST COMPLETELY GONE AS IF I NEVER MADE THE POST. 🤔
