Cryptocurrency goes pro-feminism with Masculinity Coin
The coin is called Masculinity Coin. It exists as a token on the Ethereum block chain https://etherscan.io/token/0x84abbb6fde5d95771a8115d90d99c4a587143c07
This is directly taken from the website http://www.masculinityresearch.com/masculinity-coin/
"Part cryptocurrency, part thinking tool, part art project, holding and trading of Masculinity Coin can be interpreted as either a celebration or critique of traditional masculinity.
Masculinity Coin draws attention to the masculine nature of the technological culture driving the rise in cryptocurrencies.
Masculinity Coin also highlights a structural commonality between masculinity and cryptocurrencies: the meaning and value of both are based upon an ever-shifting social consensus.
No other cryptocurrency simultaneously operates on such different levels as Masculinity Coin. It is both a tradable coin and a catalyst for exploring personal identity. Masculinity Coin aims to decentralize masculinity as part of a more sustainable future.
In the longer term, Masculinity Coin has the potential to become a crowdfunding mechanism: batches of Masculinity Coin can be released for sale and the proceeds used to fund specific masculinity-focused research and initiatives."
Interesting concept coming from an anti-masculinity website.
Despite the site name, this website and coin mission are actually anything but actually supporting masculinity and masculine based causes and research.
In fact rather the opposite - if such a thing exists at all.
Also found on their website is http://www.masculinityresearch.com/five-stages-overview/
This is an article where they define the "5 stages of masculinity".
Stage 5 is defined as “beyond masculinities” and begins to tackle the crisis of meaning opened up by Stage 4. Very few people consciously operate at Stage 5, although a larger number of people probably intuit its presence.
The bottom line of Stage 5 is the simple truth that masculinity does not exist.
So as can be seen from their own pages, despite any claim otherwise, this coin exists for exactly the opposite reason that they claim. It is not to promote masculinity at all.
Rather it is to bring people to the belief that "masculinity does not exist".
So how do you feel about political causes and cryptocurrencies mixing?
