I’m not exaggerating when I say that I’ve seen thousands of websites in the last few years, countless just the last few weeks, which appear like they were auto-generated by a computer. They seem to take words and phrases such as “global world”, “future”, “blockchain”, “change”, “platform”, “innovator”, etc., and just generate word salad sentences which then somebody makes a visually slick-looking website for, with generic photos/colors/illustrations vaguely related to technology.
Just one example out of so many I don’t even know where to begin: https://cardano.org/
No matter how long I spend on these websites, I can’t make any sense of anything that’s said. Where is the software to download? What do they actually do? What do they want? Is this actually a “thing”, or does it have zero users and is just trying to make it seem like it’s a thing?
I gave up on Ethereum today. I simply don’t believe that it’s real. Seriously. It just doesn’t have any software to download, and the (apparently) previously existing C++ implementation of their wallet/fullnode just links back to the “official” website, which in turn doesn’t list any desktop applications.
I no longer believe that any of these websites are real. I use Bitcoin (Bitcoin Core), so I know that at least Bitcoin is real, but all these other cryptocurrencies and related websites seem entirely fake.
I did my utmost to find out information or get information from a human being, but nobody wants to answer any question. Their chatrooms are ghost towns. Even the Stack Exchange category is dead.
Unless I’ve gone crazy, or I’m in some kind of fake Internet bubble, it doesn’t seem like there exists any other actual cryptocurrency besides Bitcoin. And even that, virtually nobody has even heard of in the real world.
I’m not talking about obvious scams such as “send Bitcoin to this address and we will double it!”. I’m talking about all these seemingly professional and wildly promising (but vague) websites which seem to be nothing but vaporware…?
