Mark Cuban, the alchemist
Over thousands of years alchemists have come and gone pursuing their holy grail of creating money, or gold, out of thin air. In today's technology times alchemists no longer attempt to create gold through chemistry but through a technology meant to mimic gold and gold mining, ie Bitcoin.
The technocrats are flush with cash and the US government is passive in the mounting attack against the $USD, and the gold implicitly backing the $USD located in Fort Knox and West Point.
Mark Cuban, the billionaire who made his billions selling a worthless company called Broadcast.com he hyped to Yahoo in the go-go late 1990s, is at the forefront of today's alchemy. Mr. Cuban promptly sold his shares in Yahoo and purchased the Dallas Mavericks. Unfortunately Mr. Cuban ran the Mavericks like a frat house that resulted in several sexual assaults, according to many former employees, but faced no calls to sell the team. Mr. Cuban's Mavericks are still dogged by his apparent inability to reign in the sexual assault culture nurtured under his ownership, according to the Dallas Morning News...
What does all of this have to do with alchemy? Mr. Cuban just tweeted the following...
"We at http://Mavs.com will continue to accept BTC/Eth/Doge because we know that replacing Gold as a store of value will help the environment https://nytimes.com/2005/10/24/world/behind-golds-glitter-torn-lands-and-pointed-questions.html… and https://moneyweek.com/investments/alternative-finance/bitcoin/602678/bitcoin-energy-consumption… shrinking big bank and coin usage will benefit society and the environment"
Mr. Cuban is so interested in benefiting society that he wants to rid the world of gold as a store of value, but his basketball organization is the posterchild for sexual assault within a pro sports organization?
Beware the new alchemists.
