Don’t be pedantic, no one cares about DoD computers talking to each other in 1977. The Internet as we know it (available to anyone with a connection, html pages with text, images, clickable links, etc.) started around the mid 90s. Its use case was clear 10 years into it. OP’s point is that crypto as we know it has been around for a while and no one really uses it other than for speculation.

have you considered that it took time to develop into "the internet as we know it" and went through a period where there were "no use cases" aside from what most people would consider stupid? the "internet as we know it" did not just appear from nothing in the 1990s. crypto today is basically in the same state as the internet in the 1970s

Almost nobody had heard of the internet in the 70s, and almost nobody could access it unless you worked at the DoD or in a university computing research lab. Almost everyone can access crypto and everyone has at least heard of it.

i used early ftp/vine/etc servers. the usability for the average person was not there. secondly there was nothing of interest for 99% of people. i don't see how that analogous to crypto.

you needed html to make the data attractive and available, what does crypto need? its just currency.

the better argument against it is that it has no convincing use case, i already have currency why would i switch.

why would anyone choose to TRANSACT in an crypto, instead of fiat? they're either:

1. engaging in illegal commerce in any country

2. making big purchase in a banana republic with serious inflation

there's no good reason. it has nothing to do with ui/ux. everyone in a developed country would rather use fiat

why would anyone choose to HOLD crypto?

1. speculation

2. crypto nerd having fun

zero interest rate comes to an end and suddenly there's no good reason to speculate. so you're left with crypto nerds having fun as the only reason to transact or hold

You clearly know nothing about crypto or just havent thought about it much. It is VASTLY better than fiat and has seen more progress and innovation in the past 5 years than tradfi has in the past few decades.

-transactions take seconds or minutes to settle, rather than days

-you have finality of settlement right away, which is huge

-no off-hours or off-days

-ability to have complete self-custody

-ability to deploy capital in a matter of minutes to earn a above-market yield

And the above are just practical advantages of stablecoins, which are only going to increase as they become more integrated with tradfi.

The most important aspect of crypto for me is a decentralized store of value, uncontrollable by governments. If you haven't noticed, the governments of the world are collectively becoming more and more oppressive and authoritarian. If you don't see the value in having an "insurance policy" of half a mil socked away on a thumbdrive (or committed to memory, with the ability to restore it on any computer anywhere), then you haven't thought about the future much and where everything could be heading.

CASH. Wire. Certified funds. I get INSURANCE. I can bond to get replacement certified checks. I get a bank to ensure I don't make an error.

-you have finality of settlement right away, which is huge

wut? no refunds? its cash. they can just say no. I don't understand. you can still get sued for a transaction in crypto.

-no off-hours or off-days

CASH.

-ability to have complete self-custody

CASH.

-ability to deploy capital in a matter of minutes to earn a above-market yield

...while invested in a risky asset. that's not new. thats all high-risk high-reward investments.

I have a stack of ~$12,000 in my safe. I can PHYSICALLY take it somewhere and buy something. I don't see how 12k in crypto would be superior.

I'm all for you people making money, I just dont understand the reason for this shit.

you don't have the slightest understanding of what people are trying to do. For example, settle in CASH in seconds! Are you retarded? have you ever sold fucking stock? shit takes days to settle. He is not talking about cash or money he is talking about securities and the entire point went over your head and i am sure that even though i point this out you are too dense to understand

The problem is that it's still too centralized because of the exchanges. In an ideal world, the exchanges would facilitate cryptocurrency exchanges, not USD/crypto. That's the biggest hurdle to overcome in the next 10-20 years. It's also the biggest existential threat to fiat, so you know (((they))) are doing everything they can to prevent it unless it's on their terms with their own central banking coin.

It’s a fucking joke and none of the arguments holds water. In a true shit hits the fan scenario fake internet money will drop faster than any other common store of value and possibly become outright impossible to access or use. The fact that the smartest minds in the space work around the clock to turn other people’s fiat into crypto and their own crypto into fiat, real estate and cars tells you everything you need to know.
