I can already live off of my crypto earnings comfortably. The type of profits I suggested would be in a range where I could dump some 20~50m into the development of a game without even flinching about potentially never making it back.

That's a lot of BTC you're holding.

Not sure if this was already posted, please don't kill the messenger as i don't agree with lots of these points.
However, this shows where institutional investors (aka hedgies) are on this.

https://twitter.com/DoveyWan/status/1068573163670261760

In short: institutionals are shell-shocked and bewildered.
My take home message from this particular tweetstorm: small size institutional money will not participate from now on.

TL;DR she predicts that, similarly to how internet happened, blockchain will eat the world, but somehow traditional players (Fidelity, Paypal, etc) would be the winners and we would be the losers.
I disagree, obviously.

It's really frustrating because when the smoke clears on all the bullshit, shitcoin scams, and ICO scams, it's clear to anyone that gets involved with the crypto space that the entire industry/ecosystem hinges on BitcoinTM being successful. It begins and ends with BitcoinTM. All the other crap is just noise and nonsense. I think everyone realizes this by now.

If every company out there would just rally around BitcoinTM, create services and job opportunities exclusively for BitcoinTM, and integrate with it exclusively, there would be zero, I mean ZERO downside to that. Bitcoin would be fully supported, miners would get 100% behind it, R&D development would get behind it, investors would get 100% behind it, etc. End users would not be so confused on what to buy and why -- they would know exactly what to buy: BitcoinTM.

But no, everyone wants to recreate the wheel with their own one-off, co-opted and privatized blockchain and their own coin. Well good luck with that. All those efforts will fail massively and spectacularly.

It really is the public Internet vs. privatized Intranets battle all over again. Have we learned nothing from that?

Nope. We never will either.

Trillions of calories and dollars will have to burnt before it dawns once again. It's human nature to attempt to bend the unbendable to your own worthless will because you think you somehow know better.

Teslas will have zero long term resale value.

What about stocking up on batteries? Not sure what they cost, but if that's the only issue then those things could last longer than traditional cars. Not sure about the economics of this though.

What about stocking up batteries to resell them afterwards?  Huh

If we already know batteries won't last that can be a good deal...
