TBH, I think we should just start referring to blockchain fees and gas as "tax", because I can think of no better way to induce cognitive dissonance in crypto bros.

@MeDueleLaTeta Exactly! I am convinced that they think just calling it something else makes it not the thing.


They won't fall for it because they know the difference between fees and taxes.

A tax is something that's imposed onto you by force without requiring voluntary consent

A fee is something that you can choose voluntarily whether you want to pay it or not.

If you don't pay the fee, you don't get the service.

If you don't pay the tax, you'll eventually end up dispossessed of your property and/or thrown in prison.

@TakeV But then you'll need representation 😜

"No taxation without representation"
