It won't be a surprise, but I honestly believe we'd have a better world if were to get a chance to replace part of these industries. And given the immense power these industries have over our policy makers, I don't see any other way to get rid of them. Bitcoin is unstoppable, it is 100% neutral and honest; it has no opinion that can be corrupted by wealth and power.
Anyone with internet can use it. Anyone with electricity can mine it. No permission required.

Bought a book for the kindle, started reading, and noticing the passages other people highlighted. And I realize what I had forgotten: to read on the kindle is to read before an army of bots, recording my every move. To read on the kindle is to play Dark Souls and see the scratched messages of the dead and dying who went before me. Welcome to the corpse book that brings no joy. I really need to dig out the forbidden Calibre wizardry. I should have pirated this book. 🏴‍☠️ #drm

This defeats the entire purpose of #DPKI.
