Attempting to write something coherent and concise for “This Week in Review” is a rather dauntless task. With so much unwinding so fast there isn’t really enough time to read, much less digest it all. We are faced with such a rapid rate of change on all fronts, currency wars, diabolical wars, lies and fake news are rampant as the bots ramp up, divert our attention and censor our searches for the real, the vital and the true.
Having simply plucked one article out of the brew that really says it all … It’s not just the crypto community that needs to grow up! The Community of Humankind needs to take that vital leap toward a more viable (life giving) trajectory or we are going to be condemned to repeating the same mistakes again, and again and again. Greed knows no limits, that is until the more of us simply stand up and hold our ground.
In the upcoming year it will be upon us, the awakened ones, to find a new trajectory where money isn’t god. A lot is being share within the crypto community (a term I dislike for it transmits something dead in it’s meaning) so lets go for Community as in communion, the life giving substance that lays beneath us all. We are presented with ideas about UBI (Universal Basic Income) which for myself is where we need to lead. That said, any system that is installed is subject to takeover, corruption and disease. So how are we the People going to break free and fully come into our divine inheritance? It’s going to take a whole lot of consciousness, a whole lot of reciprocity and the most important of all the knowledge of how all is connected. Without that we will flounder.
While we may not have the answer just yet it is coming as more and more people exit the system and stand their holy ground.
Once the lie of scarcity is disclosed then natural abundance factors can come to fruition. Are we ready?
The 23-year-old took to Twitter on Wednesday to lament the immaturity of communities across the cryptocurrency market. He said folks in the space should understand the difference between enacting positive change for society, and just moving a bunch of money around. Here’s Buterin:
Energies are being squandered on memeing about luxury cars and inappropriate jokes, according to Buterin. And if things don’t change he warned he would leave the space altogether.
The market for digital coins has exploded this year, with bitcoin and ethereum leading the way. Ethereum is up more than 8,500% since the beginning of the year. Also, ethereum paved the way for hundreds of initial coin offerings, a cryptocurrency twist on the initial public offering process. Autonomous NEXT, a fintech analytics firms, estimates over $4 billion has been raised via ICOs, which help startups raise capital outside traditional financial services. In total, the market for digital coins has exploded from just under $18 billion at the start of the year to a whopping $560 billion at last check, according to data from CoinMarketCap.com.
Still, Buterin has questioned whether such gains are grounded in reality. Here’s Buterin in a tweet soon after the crypto market surpassed $500 billion for the first time:
