(Guitar World)   Megadeth launched their own crypto-currency, SMEGMA. Oh wait, sorry. That's $MEGA. The Band hopes that the value will inflate to the size of Dave Mustaine's ego   (guitarworld.com) divider line

Plenty of idiots will buy it once. The question, truly, is "who's going to buy it again?" If you can't use crypto as currency, and you can't exchange it for a currency you can use, what's the point?

"By buying, holding, and transacting with $MEGA, fans will gain access to exclusives and premium benefits," the band write

Ah - it's not cryptocurrency. It's just scrip & VIP access tokens with extra steps, just like what other bands are doing with NFTs.

Soon, you won't be able to listen to a band WITHOUT a proper token; won't that be fun?

I was waiting to help give money to a guy who is opposed to masks for COVID, against gay marriage, wants more god in school, is a birther, supports a southern border wall, a gun nut, a Rick Santorum supporter, and ascribes to numerous other rightwing lunacy.

Shrug - anyone that would buy/sell any other similar currency if it showed any promise?  Just like people will trade in Botswanan Pula in the hard currency world - regardless of the fact that it's a small and pretty low-end currency by international standards.  They do it because they can make money by so doing - in both cases

If you're done stroking out or whatever I was just going to mention that Dave was pretty pro-mask through the big COVID wave and was selling Vic Rattlehead masks on Megadeth's site, etc.

For the useless shiatcoins, maybe.  But projects like Bitcoin, Ethereum, Cardano, Helium, Solana, and Monero, etc aren't going away.   Look at it like the Dot Com bubble.   Yeah, lots of small companies blew up and died during that time.  It doesn't mean that all internet commerce died too.  There will always be crypto now, and it will grow.  Lots of shiatcoins will come and die but the bigger projects are here to stay.

It isn't enough for every damn store to have its own rewards/points/loyalty program, now music bands gotta do it too.

Also, Megadeth is nearly 40 years old.
