Interesting piece about how a new cryptocurrency called "intimate" will allow for easier transactions within the sex world industry. The main focus of the article is how a cryptocurrency bypasses/solves a bunch of problems such as anonymity, payment, and financial services that are usually denied or at least "an issue" within the sex/porn/escort/stripper industry. But it doesn't delve anywhere near or deeply as it could in using sex as an intrinsic value that cryptocurrencies desperately need.
This is not too far removed from reality in that sex, or the pursuit of it, has ordained and made/broke different industries. VHS vs. Betamax, the internet, high speed internet, not to mention...ALL OF FREAKING SOCIETY...was built and came into existence because of the porn industry and/or the pursuit of sex. Gold only has intrinsic value because it (in the olden days) could be made into jewelry which would woo the opposite sex. Matter of fact, some savvy entrepreneur could make billions, perhaps trillions, if they find a way to monetize sex in the form of a cryptocurrency.
I'd like too. But that would take effort. And I'm much too busy enjoying the decline to expend such effort. But by all means, one of you crypto-experts get on it. The results would be amazing to watch and would certainly cause such upheaval in society, it would beat any movie Hollywood could possibly produce.
