You know there’s something a bit weird going on when it seems OK to start creating currencies based on a video game. Of course it’s all part of this new Bitcoin ‘revolution’, but even so it’s getting crazier by the minute.
The latest offering is FlappyCoin, which is based on the stupidest game ever invented, which netted its creator an absolute fortune before he shut the game down for some reason a month or so back. FlappyBird was awful in a terribly great way, and we suspect these crypto-coin currencies are going to end up the same way.
Luckily the huge majority of the real – as opposed to online – world doesn’t give a fig for currencies or birds (unless they’re angry), so the only real question is how long will it take before this stuff either takes off and changes the world or crashes into total oblivion? Hmmm…!
