It finally occurred to me that a real cryptocurrency would be one which didn’t require a network to validate transactions. While bitcoin was a giant leap, it has been legislated out of popular use. I believe something even more decentralized might come along and sweep it away.
A real crypto would consist of some kind of token that can be proven to be unique and to be “owned” only by the holder. I guess it would be associated with a wallet. Spending it would simply change the token so that it’s associated with a different wallet. I wonder if anyone’s discussing this.
BTW, could this question be any more obnoxious? :-]
