sure, because it's monopoly money. And after it's "made", then what? Bitcoin uses the kWh to run it's entire transaction and verification system and it can do it with a level of accuracy, accountability and real-time overview that is totally unimaginable for any fiat currency. At least compare apples to apples
I briefly dabbled in counterfeiting in the 80s and while it was very lucrative, there were some downsides. First off, having effectively infinite money gets to your head real quick. At one point I had 10 houses and probably 20 cars. Everyday I partied and every night I worked the press. I decided to quit when I flew into a rage and jammed my business partner into the counterfeiter press, squashing him beyond recognition. I really didn’t have a choice about quitting though since the press was broken. At that point I had more money then I’d ever need anyway. Now I just sit back and create new cyptocurrencies, which ironically makes me even more then counterfeiting and is semi legal
And then immediately sold at a gigantic profit.
This is close to the worst "Gubment spending is bad m'kay" comment I've seen in a long time. It costs 13 cents to make something the government sells for $100.
Like what the hell is this comment even supposed to be talking about? There's no lack of buyers for $100 bills. There aren't stacks of hundreds laying around unsold in some warehouse somewhere. The 13 cents it costs to print a $100 bill is a complete triviality compared to the value of the bill itself.
Hmm. I can understand why different denominations cost a different amount -- anti-counterfeiting measures are more stringent on the higher denominations... but why is the $50 more expensive than the $100?
Yes. By making $1 bills, you would have $5.40 in expenses on $100 gross income, for an ROI of about 18.52. By making $100 bills, you would have $0.54 in expenses on $100 gross income for an ROI of about 185.19.
