They are using the money system as a weapon against countries and against journalists.
But don't worry. It'll be fine I'm sure. We don't need bitcoin. They'll never run the money into the ground or turn it into a social credit score. Why would they?
@pre PayPal has been dead to me since they cancelled WikiLeaks in 2010. I'll use a credit card through them when it's the only payment option, but they don't get a balance, and don't link to my bank accounts. PayPal has been stealing from their customers and freezing accounts for long enough that people should really know better by now than to trust them.
A gateway into the global open conversation in the fediverse for Boing folks and anyone they know.
