slip over telnet!!!

early demon internet, getting linux to connect. Those were the days.

But why use addons to etherium when monero has all of the privacy right now?

Meh. I have yet to find a legitimate use case for block chain besides heating the planet and keeping the electricity companies’ stocks high.

Whatever problems the Faster Payments system has, blockchain is not the solution. The protocol can be improved, as far as “trust” is concerned it’s enforced by the government and there has never been any issue with that so I don’t see the point of actually transferring “crypto” value (which has its own problems with converting it back to GBP) when updating a ledger works just as well.
