Re: <nettime> Ethereum: DAO - "The Attacker"


   Hi,
   Just looking over Morlock's comments now and, Jaromil, I'm wondering if
   you had any more comments or links about criticisms of Popper's book
   about BitCoin. It comes up a lot as a reference and I'd appreciate some
   more perspective.

   Best
   Fen

     Oh c'mon, the NYT is just bringing forward the next Hearn / Craig /
     Whatevs shilling operation. Just like the book by Nathaniel Popper:
     a marketing operation to carefully eliminate all sort of uncomfortable
     facts from the history of Bitcoin. If you call yourself critical and
     then follow this line of history, well then... good luck, you may even
     find a freelance job working for the Central IA Sinophobia department.
     ciao
