crypto (I'm sorry I've been hyperfocused on ways to dismantle it)
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.
