Vice interviewed Dan Olson about his NFT video. He is insufferable, which isn't to say he's wrong about NFTs and most cryptohype being pump and dump schemes. Just that he's a piece of shit. (link/archive)

I watched it, just to have something in the background, and you're right, it is INSUFFERABLE. Not that anything he says in it about crypto is /wrong/ but everything has been translated into intellectual jargon to make him seem more educated. Every paragraph is in woke academia speak. It's the exact opposite of an Internet Historian or Ordinary Things video, which drags a concept down to funny laymen's terms and makes it interesting.

This feels like those old scholastic fucks of the Middle Ages who wrote everything in Latin.

It's worse. Educated people wrote in Latin back then because that's what all the other educated people spoke, so using Latin allowed scholars and scientists to communicate with one another using a shared language, while writing in the country's home language would sharply curtail how many people they could corresponding with.

Olsen is doing it to imitate whst he thinks intelligent people sound like (while in reality a hallmark of intelligence and understanding is the ability to communicate complicated topics in a way that non-specialists can understand), or to intentionally render his arguments immune to critique and rebuttal by his audience.

Having heard some of the talking points in his video he doesn't seem to even understand the basics of crypto. Like he claims crypto can't be private since it has a public blockchain record, which is just untrue. There is a reason criminals still use the crypto for transactions its private unless you are a retard e-celeb who dumps his wallet address on twitter. I'll agree with Dan that the original goal of bitcoin as a new stable digital gold have been dashed by its transformation into a meme stock bro asset, but the whole thing just reeks of the weird modern lefty trends to deny inflation is even real. I've seen multiple tweets from big name blue checkmarks claiming there is no inflation only companies raising prices because capitalism decided to be extra evil today.

Modern western socialism, AKA antiwork socialism, requires the tacit belief that we alreadly live in a post scarcity society.

Olson is truly the establishment's golden boy. His video is being recommended relentlessly. I haven't watched a single one of his videos and I haven't watched anything on Youtube about NFT's or crypto, yet there it is. Would be really cool if he'd make like Ellis or that Alt Right Playbook cuck and go the fuck away.

When you find yourself hating someone (who did not directly hurt you) with blinding rage, know for certain that it is not the person you hate at all, but rather something about them that threatens your identity. Find that thing.

One thing I've wondered about these people who are so worried about NFT scams. Why do they care? Anyone who believes in NFT's is a goddamn moron. I'm guessing them or one of their friends got scammed?

It's absolutely not about protecting consumers, there will ALWAYS be a bag-holder in the end. It's about lashing out at the people that make him feel impotent

For Dan, it's fear that the wrong people will use NFT's to get rich. That's his real motive. Not that people will get scammed, he doesn't actually give a fuck about that and probably secretly thinks they deserve it, but that "Nazis" will be able to make money. He briefly admitted as much in the VICE interview. Stonetoss used NFT's to make 2 million dollars in an afternoon. Leftists were furious. That's what this is really about to them.

Dan wants a social credit system. He wants it so badly he thinks about it when he faps in a futile attempt to give himself an erection. The idea of people who commit wrongthink being able to be successful drives him crazy.

Nothing about his involvement in the campaign against NFT's is altruistic.

Giving this dude 2 hours of your time is a bad idea, I don't know why anybody would trust Dan Olsen to properly and honestly inform them. Just use common sense when dealing with NFT's and Crypto and keep in mind that there's a whole lot of scamming going on.
Now he's apparently getting cited.

So pretty much everyone.
Nope, just the ones who are just as nerdy as him, but managed to become more powerful despite their seeming lack of education. Dan Olsen wasted thousands of hours in videogames around the 08 recession, and he was comfortable believing that it was the the one flaw he could blame for making him a life loser. He was comfortable thinking of himself as an underperforming genius, constantly rationalizing why the world was too fucked for him to do anything. But then dorks with the same social flaws and even lower IQs managed to start moving and shaking the world in ways that he felt entitled to. And so he stews in impotent rage that people are breaking the rules of the identity he had cast on himself and others

Here's a story: in 2011 I did a school report on Bitcoin, which was less than a year old at the time. It wasn't even a tech class, but a public speaking class, and I chose it because I randomly read about it. My report made all the same conclusions Dan does- that cryptocurrencies were a highly-volitile asset that will inevitably crash and waste a lot of electricity along the way. And I was 100% right. At the time the Bitcoin community was so much smaller that a couple of somethingawful goons were able to crash the price from like $100 to $20 by posting fake charts around the internet. And yet it was still a $20 asset that eventually became worth $50,000 and every "moron" that bought into it for the next 7 years was able to make a killing.

Also none of it even indicates anything remotely like a deliberative process where he thought this shit out. He's just a boring NPC repeating everything every other idiot who has been told to have Two Minutes Hate against crypto thinks. You've heard this dumb shit this child pornography distributing moron a thousand times before. How does this guy even have a Patreon? What is wrong with these people? He is less relevant than Pete Coffin.
