The immutable problem with money -- and materialism -- as a whole is that everything starts with/in the Mind... the Principle Of Mentalism, which makes value subjective, hence the impossibility to have a stable currency... the bigger the mania, the bigger the bust... cryptomarkets have fallen prey to a mania, like many others, regardless of the complexity of blockchain in this case.
Because of the fluctuation of value, materialistic pursuits cannot bring about happiness but exactly the opposite. What is deemed "valuable" changes over time and depends on social trends. Once upon a time, plastic was deemed a very valuable material, which today is polluting the entire planet. We have even managed to pollute space. Incredible? Will space junk end our modern way of life? It works the same way with so many other material speculations on Human Lives and Nature.
BREAKING DOWN THE CONUNDRUM
We only have 2 choices: understanding the illusion of value and accept that money cannot be speculated on, zero-economic sum game (nobody can hoard money)... or going currency-free , with passion for what one does and voluntaryism become the only currency... which one is the simplest? Why Is Thinking Not Recognized As The 6th Sense?
A Stunning Look Inside The World Of South Korea's "Bitcoin Zombies" | zerohedge | The country's crypto-trading craze is so pervasive that the country has developed the term “bitcoin zombie” referring to people who check the cryptocurrency’s price around the clock. Even the country’s prime minister Lee Nak-yeon expressed concerns over Korea’s bitcoin craze, warning that “young people and students are rushing into virtual currency trading to earn huge profits in just a short period of time,” and that “it is time for the government to take action as it could lead to serious pathological phenomena if left unchecked" forcing young people into illegal activities like drug dealing..... As an example, as Reuters details in its just released deep dive in South Korea's crypto-community, on a recent weeknight at Sungkyunkwan University in Seoul, more than a dozen students crammed into a classroom not to study, but to share tips on investing in so-called cryptocurrencies, which have driven tales of fantastic returns for savvy investors.... But some in South Korea’s financial establishment say those hopes may be unfounded. Kim Yong-beom, vice chairman of the Financial Services Commission, said Monday that the only reason prices were going up was because each investor expected the next buyer down the line to pay a higher price. “That really is a Ponzi scheme,” he said.

WHY IS THE WORLD GOING INTO THE WRONG DIRECTION
Our day of reckoning isn't that far ahead anymore. There is no "if" but "when". All great spiritualists have warned populations against materialism in their own words. The Earth Custodians endorse them all.
The Fascinating Scientific Reason Why "Money Doesn't Buy Happiness" | alternet.org | According to the research, in modern America the average income required to be happy day-to-day, to experience “emotional well being” is about $75,000 a year. According to the researchers, past that point adding more to your income “does nothing for happiness, enjoyment, sadness, or stress.” A person who makes, on average, $250,000 a year has no greater emotional well-being, no extra day-to-day happiness, than a person making $75,000 a year. In Mississippi it is a bit less, in Chicago a bit more, but the point is there is evidence for the existence of a financiohappiness ceiling. The super-wealthy may believe they are happier, and you may agree, but you both share a delusion. (MORE AT THE LINK)
Money Spent On Life Experiences, Not Material Things, Brings Happiness | medicaldaily.com | In the pursuit of happiness, life experiences matter more than the acquisition of material objects. Scientists living in one of America’s most expensive cities — San Francisco — have come to the conclusion that money can’t buy happiness.But most people already know that. They just refuse to believe it. Rather than investing more to enjoy life experiences, many spend time and money to acquire material objects they believe to be tangible indicators of happiness, though always fleeting....... "There were just huge underestimates in how much value people expected to get from their purchase," Howell said. "It's almost like people feel they will get no economic value from their life experiences and therefore they feel this tension in spending money on them." (MORE AT THE LINK)
