Welcome to the Monthly Skeptics Discussion thread. As the title implies, the purpose of this thread is to promote rational discussion about cryptocurrency related topics but with an emphasis on skepticism. This thread is intended to be an outlet for critical discussion, since it is often suppressed.
Please read the rules and guidelines before participating.
This discussion thread has much higher standards compared to the Daily Discussion thread. Please behave in accordance with the following rules.
All r/CC rules apply.
For top-level comments, a minimum of 250 characters will be imposed as well as a minimum of 1000 comment karma and 6 months account age.
Discussions must be on-topic, ie only related to critical discussion about cryptocurrency. For example, the flaws in a consensus algorithm, how legitimate a project is, missed development milestones, etc. Discussions about market analysis, financial advice, or tech support will most likely be removed and is better suited for the daily thread.
Low-effort comments promoting coins or tokens will be removed. For example, comments saying “Buy coin X!” or “Coin X is going to the moon!🚀”, showcasing the current composition of your portfolio, or stating you sold coin X for coin Y, will be removed. In other words, no shilling.
Offensive language, profanity, trolling, and satire will be removed. This thread is intended for mature discussion.
Most of the above rules will be promptly enforced upon top-level comments by AutoModerator.
Share any uncertainties, shortcomings, concerns, etc you have about crypto related projects.
Popular or conventional beliefs should be challenged.
Refer topics such as price, gossip, events, etc. to the Daily Discussion.
Report promotional comments or shilling.
