I can't stop reading the www.ecocoin.com white paper. Honestly how are we supposed to satirize corporate tech bros when they roast themselves so comprehensively with their own ideas like this
If this weren't real it would truly be the Mona Lisa of tech satire
This is ART
What can you spend eco on? WELL
This is a real thing made by one of the guys behind uber. I could not make this up if you gave me a fucking lifetime to work on it
How does it all work, you ask?
Wait hold up I own two trees but if every tree is an ECO doesn't that mean they own all trees ever
Am I bringing up other people's currency
Fuckin gall of capitalist tech bro wankers
@sophia i'm surprised that they don't describe the intentional devaluing of their currency by planting trees as "quantitative treesing"
@sophia going without meat for... a little under a week: exactly as good as installing solar panels
@BestGirlGrace someone would have to be with you to make sure you don't cheat, mind
@sophia I threw a brick at an oil exec and now I'm owed ten million ecobucks. the computers needed to mine all of it are causing more climate change than ever. I tell them to stop, and now I'm owed even more
@sophia This definitely seems like it was birthed at a "jam pad"
@sophia this is a goldmine O_O
@sophia this just looks like capitalism with extra steps.
@sophia just saw “tree owner” in your name and I cackled 🤣
@moritzheiber I have precisely 1 (one) tree and dammit I will flaunt my eco
@sophia WE‘RE LOUD, WE‘RE PROUD, GET USED TO IT!
@sophia yes... a closed system, no contingencies. brilliant
Well that clears everything up.
@sophia I honestly don't even have words.
@sophia If you don't stop with this nonsense I'm going to blockchain myself to a tree
@lastfuture how many eco coin do you get for that
@sophia a pinus rigida
@sophia please tell me it's a meme
@sophia "If you are a tree owner" is an incredibly funny phrase to me
doubly so because that's not some buzzword, they're talking about the wood things
@BestGirlGrace I own a tree and would like to know when it will beginning paying its own way so I can go to the cinema
@sophia finally, no more freeloading trees AND I can cancel moviepass
@sophia somebody somewhere: "this could work"
@sophia "every ECO coin in circulation is backed by a tree"
@sophia wtf-ing my way through this
@sophia which 50% of a roadster do I get? And of course their goto car is a tesla 😂
@sophia pouring my gas into round containers so it's more circular and thus better for the eco-economy
@sophia that must be the least fun secret bar and club
@sophia I'm dying
@jack this is the result of someone introducing their head to their colon and calling it a green initiative
@jack that this tech brain genius has his head up his ass?
ecocoin, capitalist nonsense
I assume that "each ECO coin is backed by a tree" means that I can actually redeem them for trees somewhere. That's what backing means in this context, right?
Did they just effectively claim ownership of *every tree on Earth*?
@sophia my eyes opened so wide that when i physically recoiled they fell out onto my phone and landed sqarely on fave and boost
sparkle sparkle, bitches
