No, your cryptocurrency cannot work

No, your cryptocurrency cannot work

Whenever the topic of Bitcoin's energy usage comes up, there's always a flood of hastily-constructed comments by people claiming that their favourite cryptocurrency isn't like Bitcoin, that their favourite cryptocurrency is energy-efficient and scalable and whatnot.

They're wrong, and are quite possibly trying to scam you. Let's look at why.

What is a cryptocurrency anyway?

There are plenty of intricate and complex articles trying to convince you that cryptocurrencies are the future. They usually heavily use jargon and vague terms, make vague promises, and generally give you a sense that there must be something there, but you always come away from them more confused than you were before.

Trolling Github's DMCA repo with their own security flaws.
Note: I don't know where does this thread belongs. If I'm on the incorrect section, move it to the correct one.
Many people are literally just selling this method and I feel like sharing this out so that you don't have to pay because the seller just don't do a minute of work to get you the drive.
So moving straight towards the method:
Step I:
Go to this link: https://td.fastio.me/ (mirrors to be left at the last)
Step II:
Type your desired drive's name at the first field and your Gmail on the bottom field.
