, and have a lot in common IMHO. Artificial scarcity that has long stopped making sense in our modern world but is vigorously defended by those who stand to profit from it. Embrace sharing.

@jwildeboer do be quite honest, I don't get the similarity. Patents and copyrights protect intellectual property (which has it's ups and downs). A lot of people could profit from both being opened up. Cryptocurrency on the other hand has NO value besides scarcity - therefore the moment you take away the scarcity no one would profit. (I'm talking about cryptocurrency not blockchain in general)

@jannis_vll “intellectual property” is also just a fantasy, protected by rules to make them look more tangible. Just like cryptocurrency.

@jwildeboer
I disagree. They have nothing in common. Pseudo "Intellectual Property" is artificially forced upon all by a gang called government. (Open source) Crypto can be forked and us adopted voluntarily.
