Re: Same as the blockchain hype

"Last year you could literally walk over the heads of investors at trade shows wanting to invest in anything that had the word "blockchain" in it, even if it was evident from the most casual informed glance that it was utter BS."

A classic from 2017:

"Non-alcoholic beverage slinger Long Island Iced Tea Corp, which is publicly traded and wasn't performing particularly well financially, decided to rename itself this week to Long Blockchain – and its share price soared 289 per cent."

It's a mad mad mad mad world, I tell ya!
