But you profit off your own hardware with bitcoin. I think he was saying that someone will make a network where the network creator will profit off of everyone else's hardware.

When you uninstall it there is a survey of pre-populated answers to pick from as to why you decided to bin it. It's a good catalog of everything that's wrong with the project.

You bloody idiot. Pure research projects are never about money.

Crypto-currencies are a fool's errand for a profit. They are operate like a pseudo-Ponzi scheme. The early adopters try to hype uo and sucker in more and more people and cash out when SHTF for a quick profit. While the majority are completely SOL since there's is no near enough collateral to cover what is on "paper".

It is also becoming more and more difficult to convert those "x coins" into real-world currencies as more major financial institutions avoid crypto-currencies like the plague. Even If you want to deal with one, you have to give up anonymity.
