    Why is Stellar a shitcoin?

    - 1. Too centralized to ever be truly censorship resistant.

    - 2. Will probably be regulated into obsolescence eventually.

    - 3. Airdrop required KYC.

    - (4) Centralized tokens running on your chain don't add value, they can switch chains relatively easily.

    Stellar famously brags about distributing 20% of Stellar to Bitcoin holders but required us to tie our Bitcoin addresses to our identities to claim them. They also blocked all U.S. users from participating through a FB-based KYC method, if I recall correctly. Stellar is a joke.

    *yawn* Stellar is a joke.
