Do you use a cryptocurrency?

  • Yes
  • No
  • A crypto-what?

    Given the recent latest crash, perhaps "Do you use cryptocurrency" would be wise, to keep the poll more generic ;)

    • What is "use"?

    I have 0.50 BTC. I don't use it for anything; I mostly hang onto it for its ornamental value.

    use Moops; class Cow :rw { has name => (default => 'Ermintrude') }; say Cow->new->name

      I think "use" in this context means spend, acquire or trade in the currency.

      Update: you .5 BTC is currently worth ~250 Euro.

        It was more than double that a couple of months ago.

        Back when I acquired it virtually nobody had heard of bitcoin, so half a bitcoin was virtually nothing. Myself and some acquaintances were sending around fractions of bitcoins like 0.1 and 0.05 just to experiment with how bitcoin worked. (This was when I was writing Finance::Bitcoin.) Of course, these days it would be foolish to experiment with such large sums.

        use Moops; class Cow :rw { has name => (default => 'Ermintrude') }; say Cow->new->name
