I moderate a local Facebook group where people post local job vacancies and job requests. As part of the group policy, we ban any sort of posts about investment, crypto currency, foreign exchange, and working from home jobs. This is simply because most of these kind of posts are scams, so we put a blanket ban over it.
A member of the group was not happy about this policy and wrote a strongly worded message to me as a moderator. He said that crypto currency shouldn’t be lumped in as a scam. That kind of mentality is so yesterday from a decade ago, he said. He said you can even buy bitcoins from the local post office, it is a legitimate digital wallet, and the future is heading towards crypto currency.
I’ve heard it all before, but never really believe it. I have not experienced any need to use crypto currency in my day to day transactions. It seems to be within the realm of a small handful of people only, largely irrelevant to the average Joe.
But what was new to me is that I found out that you can indeed buy Bitcoins from my local post office.
What are your thoughts on crypto currency? Is it really the future as these proponents claim it to be?
