Yet another “brilliant” scheme from a cryptobro. Naturally this caused a gold-rush for scammers who outsourced random people via the gig economy to open PRs for this yml file (example)

    If you think “crypto” people came up with this I have bad news for you, spamming is as old as the internet, and adding ads to repos is not new. Btw, “cryptobro” is a sexist term that excludes women.

      I’m usually that person getting downvoted for insisting on inclusive language so I totally get you, but girl I’ve never met a cryptobro who wasn’t a man.

            Damn, OneCoin was bad. Ruja Ignatova was the first crypto scammer I’ve seen talked about in national news and she was also made fun of in a news comedy show over here. A true scam pioneer.

            Technically not a cryptosis as onecoin wasn’t a cryptocurrency, that was part of the scam.

              There’s two kinds of crypto scams: Ones that actually involve crypto and ones that don’t.

              Vague, possibly impossible to implement promises about proposed future functionality are an integral part of the crypto sphere!

                Fair perspective. It is a scam happing in the crypto sphere but that doesn’t necessarily make her a cryptosis. I mean, it comes down to what makes a cryptosis a cryptosis, acting in the crypto sphere or believing in crypto or holding crypto?

        Are you one of the people who thinks what you don’t know doesn’t exist? How did you manage to find lemmy if you can’t use a search engine?

        Sounds like a sensible proposal, by domain or by tld.
