Joberr, which is basically TaskRabbit on the blockchain, is conducting it's crowdsale starting today and ending on the 26th.
I liked it, until I read the actual whitepaper. This has got to be the single most anemic whitepaper I have ever read. It's a great idea, but the execution is shit.
The company subreddit is 6 days old. The alexa ranking has 1 outside website linking to the company homepage.
The 300,000 dollar sale for 50% of company profits amounts to a $600,000 company valuation.
Those guys pretty much spent 2 weeks and $800 on this "company" and they want $600,000 for it?
White Paper: D-
Someone actually donated $4000 to this half-assed weekend project? That's a 500% return on your $800 company. Kudos to them. I guess some people will fall for anything if you slap the word blockchain on it.
One of the most overly hyped schools of thought currently floating in the Manosphere is Machiavellianism. This is not to say that we should be generous and nice, but rather the fact that Machiavellianism is ineffective.
The hype around Machiavelli is similar to the hype around Satan. For all the hype around Satan being evil and dark, his actual job is to imprison bad people and send good people to heaven. For all the hype surrounding Machiavelli, we must consider the fact that the nobility read his book and SNUBBED him. It is a strange thing for the common man to hold him in high regard whilst the very nobility that actually holds power found his "talent" insufficient.
The problem lies in the premise of The Prince. It is a book on the manipulation of the masses in order to hold power. The book outlines a PR campaign towards the common people for the nobility and yet... nobility do nothing of the sort in practice. In fact, SUCCESSFUL nobility tend to do the exact opposite. They are reclusive, secretive, and operate almost entirely on informal social networks.
In short, there was a reason why The Prince was universally snubbed by the people actually in power. Machiavelli imagined a ruler as a virtue signalling public figure instead of a networking dealmaker on an exclusive country club.
We also see this play out in practice. The very best virtue signallers tend to be VERY bad rulers, if for no other reason than the disconnect between what one does and how that translates to power. A far better political treatise is The Dictator's Handbook: Why Bad Behavior Is Almost Always Good Politics. It gives a much better approximation of the secretive lives of the nobility that actually holds power and includes a number of real world studies.
