Orwell's dead so we see how well it worked out for him!Taleb: Bitcoin Is "An Excellent Idea" And "Insurance Against An Orwellian Future"
Was Orwell so bad? At least you knew where you stood with him.
But, if anything, I'd say bitcoin is an Orwellian future given all the ways that the miners, wallets, exchanges, and bitcoin hodler's computers can be subverted and money irrevocably stolen. Bitcoin is abject insecurity wrapped in a cryptojargon doublespeak mantle of security.
