I am pleased to announce the latest in cryptocurrency. It's called Poetzcoinz. What happens is: you send me $100 USD, and I send you a poem of my choice converted into numerical format by an algorithm of my devising. This will be registered on a public, anonymized register that will record all transactions, making it uncounterfeitable. As with Bitcoin a fixed number of 21 million Poetzcoinz will be released over the next hundred years. Because only real poetry is used, this product resists the problem of large scale mining operations (since writing poetry is the real "hard problem"). And because only real poems are used, and everybody knows that real poems are increasingly rare, value is guaranteed to go up! So you should get in on the ground floor. Act now before you miss out on this cutting edge opportunity!
