Stop claiming your proof-of-[whatever resource] is good for incentivising the extension of that resource for anyone.
We live in a scarce material world, where all these extension only eat away from these material resources. And you're gonna use most of them to build a pyramid scheme!?
What your idea of incentivising infrastructure extension is also missing: In a purely economic world – which is what crypto bros dream of – this only happens after all free tiers, shared and common/ communal resources are used up. Goodbye fair-use shared hosting, goodbye open CI services, goodbye community internet access.
Maybe it is time we figure out some structural system against the abuse of shared Infrastructure.
Something like a WoT that attributes Identities as ‚doesn‘t do abusive shit‘ which could also be used to prevent spam.
Maybe ReclaimID could be utilized to implement something in that direction.
We need to tax this crypto-cancer hard In EU and put the collected money into environmental projects.
