Let's look at cryptocurrency consensus and distribution mechanisms.

Proof-of-work-Let's give the money to the jerk who wastes the most resources and destroys the planet.

Proof-of-stake-Let's give the money willy nilly because distributing a new coin fairly is not important. In other words, let's scam people and give all the money to ourselves.

ICO-Let's scam people.

Useful proof-of-work-Let's give the money to the person who solves a useful problem. This will create a valuable cryptocurrency. But we cannot have this because we deny science.

USEFUL POW PROBLEMS ARE THE ONLY WAY TO FAIRLY DISTRIBUTE A CRYPTOCURRENCY. CRYPTOCURRENCY MINING HAS SO FAR BEEN A DESTRUCTIVE WASTE. CRYPTOCURRENCIES WITH THEIR DESTRUCTIVE MINING OPERATIONS SCAM ICOS ARE A MARKET FAILURE DUE TO SHEER STUPIDITY.
