FYI— this is about some forked cryptocurrency platform, not the “crypto” many people would expect.

When I read "crypto" I default to assuming cryptocurrency, not cryptography, unless the domain is implicit. HN is mostly "nerd news" and I'd venture to say 10x+ cryptocurrency than cryptography articles have made it to the front page in recent years, so I think "many people would expect" cryptocurrency.

So it's a crypto platform coded in ruby?

What fresh hell is this

What in fresh hell does “fresh hell” mean?

I think the implication is clear, a "fresh hell" is something new and bad.

I hadn’t heard this before.

Also a 1995 album: https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/What_Fresh_Hell_Is_This%3F

And originally a quote from Dorthy Parker.

Dorothy Parker was very pithy, it's not surprising that she coined the phrase.


Seems very promising.


You have the code to run one. Then you're ready for the regulatory and banking issues, which are 90% of the work.
