What if we made a system of money where we trusted absolutely nobody? No institution and no person!

Then, what if we made it completely out of human control, so it can never be modified to meet anyone's needs!

And what if it was deflationary, so it always seemed to go up and rewarded early adopters.

And what if it had a lottery system within it that randomly rewarded people who spent time paying attention to it.

And what if it had an enormous, incomprehensibly huge carbon footprint.

And what if it's value was based entirely on people convincing each other that it must be valuable because group identity and sunk cost fallacy.

Who would be drawn to this sort of thing? How would it encourage people to change their political view? Who's interests and ideologies would this serve? What kind of politics are embedded in the tool? How would this radicalise people? What material effects would it's popularity cause?
