wait, if you just made a copy of a coin ledger and then used a different encryption method, couldn't you just clone a coin with the same amount of "scarcity?" the addresses that aren't claimed would act as "burner" addresses (basically think of burning as having diamonds in a warehouse.)

and if that doesn't have the same value as the original coin, then crypto bros would have some explaining to do, considering it is effectively a new coin with new randomly generated encrypted numbers.

there could be some reason why this doesn't work, considering I'm not a blockchain or encryption expert.

but also, like, if people could just duplicate bitcoin over and over, then the market for it would crash, and you could just do the same with every coin.
