Some ethical questions about cryptos and the future

No.83466414 ViewReplyOriginalReport
1. Decentralization here and there, a good word, but who is stopping smart contracts or exchanges from becoming the new banks and loan sharks? All those who say "banks get into debt!!11! they print money from nothing!!11!!" but why would it change in better with crypto? Debts will always exist also in crypto world.
2. We have to agree on one fundamental thing: some say cryptocurrencies are useful to block and find money laundering or criminal acts but others say they will have to be more and more anonymous because currently "traditional" payment methods (with credit cards, bank transfers or also cash) are better for privacy (since there is no public blockchain and no public transactions). What do you think that will be the future of cryptos in this regard?
3. I noticed that cryptocurrencies are seen more as a type of investment (so they are kept by people hoping that in the future the value will grow to earn money) rather than being used as real exchange currencies to buy stuff. Also how can they be used as exchange currencies if for example in El Salvador a citizen does his shopping and costs "x" btc and then he arrives home and sees that btc has gone down and therefore he has lost money.... It's not very good.
4. What are the advantages of crypto in general. Why should it be an improvement?

I understand different languages have different purposes, but which path is best for zero experience users willing to learn basics of programming? Start with HTML then Javascript followed by python or jump straight into Javascript?

Is it still possible to make portable, 1-file interactive animations in 2021?

No phone apps that need to get installed. Just one file that contains graphics, sounds, scripts. Flash could do all that.
