Can cryptocurrencies play a role in socialism? Obviously labor vouchers could be a digital currency on a centralized computer. One of the great things about bitcoin is it's a decentralized network. Could labor vouchers, or some other socialist currency, be a p2p network?

I think the blockchain behind bitcoin technologies can be used for distributed data storage in a cybernetic economy. As far as cryptocurrencies go i think theyre a bit of a meme but Maduro did try to start a state crypto currency in Venezuela if you guys have heard about that.

If you mean something similar to Bitcoin's concept specifically, I don't see the point of it. It's a concept for a low-trust society and it wastes a ton of energy. If you just mean "something on computer networks to mutually evaluate contributions in some way", then you should already know the answer.

Yes, but do it in a way that doesn't require central planning or trusting people you don't know. That's where bitcoin excels, it's just a shit concept in every other way.

>The marketing term “blockchain” means:

>anything not covered by the above, but it needs a marketing buzzword today.
