ArkAngel: What is a Juggalocoin?


A bit off?

If you can't buy Faygo w/ it, it ain't a real JuggaloCoin.

I met one the other day that was all excited about The Gathering this year because they had never been before.

I hear you get a mean discount on baby coffins if you use them to buy one.

Yes, and the FBI has classified them as a "proto" or "pseudo" gang or something.

Staffa Kar Therma: How many Tila Tequilas does a JuggaloCoin get ya?


A dozen. Tilas are small.

And this is where the system breaks down... Juggalos can't count.

What a Juggalo watershed may look like.

How many bees does it take to make a dollar? Now, to take the ferry cost a nickel, and in those days, nickels had pictures of bumblebees on 'em. Gimme five bees for a quarter, you'd say. Now where was I... oh yeah. The important thing was that I had an onion tied to my belt, which was the style at the time. You couldn't get white onions, because of the war. The only thing you could get was those big yellow ones...

My local gun shop just opened a BitCoin ATM.

$15 to transfer weapons from the interwebs to them, to me!

/need more Faygo.
 
2014-04-10 03:12:19 AM
So, is it backed by reserves of meth and Faygo?
 
2014-04-10 03:29:09 AM
No mining?

Crypto. How does it work?

Isn't that just an EBT Card?

Send magnets, Meth, and Faygo.

pseudowho: No mining?

Apparently it works by either magic, or you pay some guy named "Papa Nutt" in bitcoins to get juggalocoins. And the exchange rate is like .1 bc to 2700 jug, so....juggalocoins have about the same relative worth to bitcoins that juggalos do to nerds.
 
2014-04-10 04:45:23 AM
On JuggaloCoin.org, Papa Nutt, the innovator behind this enterprise, promotes the currency as a means of "keeping funds in the family," "promoting the positive aspects of the Juggalo lifestyle," "supporting Juggalo charities," and "promoting recognition of February 17 as international 'Juggalo Day.' "

My nose started leaking blood by the end of that sentence.

Really?  20-something posts and no one whining yet about bitcoins not being controlled by the overlords?

Bitcoin seems like some bullshiat to me, so I couldn't care less whether or not it's controlled by the "overlords".

It largely is. Lots of money HAS been made, though. And these threads are always full of whiners complaining about how it isn't gov controlled/it's tax free etc etc. It IS the middle of the night, however.

Yeah, it's kind of confusing. They seem to be claiming there's only a small premine, yet it seems like the only way you can get them is through a giveaway... which would suggest a 100% premine.

Although I just re-read it and it looks like they're offering a bounty for pools so I guess there will be regular mining after all.

Juggalos are idiots. The two guys in ICP are idiots. Yet I find much of their music weirdly enjoyable. Go figure.

"Juggalo Lifestyle?"
What, smoking meth in a trailer while dressed like a clown is a lifestyle now?

The ACLU is helping them fight that.

I bet its just dime bags of meth with some sort of sticker pasted on.

Is that a styrofoam beer cooler? Honestly, I wouldn't be surprised if it was.

You are watch the start of the Juggalo Nation. The Dark Carnival is descending this week. A new nation of no laws is being begun.

We all will live in love and peace and no more mom telling us to get of the couch and quit playing games just cuz it's getting nice out & maybe
go out and go get a job so I can pay for gas and my own Faygo.

And no more Chad, cuz that guy is a dick and the nation will fix that.

GO Juggalo Nation!

I agree with your assesment of Juggalos, but the two ICP guys may be geniuses.
