Let's talk governance, lipstick, and pigs.

I posted this not because it is a threat, but because it is an objection from folks that don't understand Bitcoin. I doubt many people thought America would win its War of Independence either. In fact, it didn't on a financial level. Bitcoin will win because it is the superior money system on every level. Still, there is good discussion here.

Any significantly advanced cryptocurrency is indistinguishable from Ponzi Tulips.

I welcome any criticism of bitcoin, any rational analysis of why it might not succeed. I have no problem at all that some don't like bitcoin, or even take it further and rail against it. I think bitcoin, in my opinion, is stronger than the critics.

However, I welcome any point of view that produces rational discussion and debate.

If we can't defend the basic tenets of bitcoin as a protocol and a payment system, then we have no business supporting it. For me, bitcoin is freedom that I never thought I'd see in my lifetime for financial systems that are beholden to their creators and governments.

  Why not simply use Bitcoin

Because Bitcoin already has 43% distributed.
