Nope... as long as humans continue to build house of cards on
quicksand this sort of stuff will always happen. You do realize
it's all fake nonsense? If the only sort of currency that existed
was what you could immediately do with your own body, then it
would be impossible to ever steal anything(except for slavery,
which is essentially still fake).
Basically this is how the story goes: Someone comes up with some
scheme to gather resources from others. The scheme is complex and
designed in such a way that only those that have created the
scheme or invested enough time to understand the scheme benefit
from all those that don't but were to stupid not to buy in to the
Eventually those at the top win. It's called a pyramid scheme and
it exists in all forms of currency, employment, governments, even
in most relationships, etc.
Only when all participants equally share complete responsibility
can the scheme be fair... but that never happens, too much to
gain when it becomes unbalanced... and the more unbalanced it
becomes the more those that unbalance it get.
I wouldn't doubt that most of these people who create these
currencies are the ones that ultimately are behind these thefts.
After all, they are the ones that know most about it and why else
would they spend their time developing it? For the benefit of
human kind? Yeah right! What a joke!
