Cryptocurrency reality shows are awful

Share This Post

Someplace on the market, maybe in a wholly alternate universe, there’s a actuality present primarily based on crypto that doesn’t make you wish to scratch your eyes out and gag as quickly as you flip it on.

Sadly, up to now all now we have is 2 Shark Tank discount bin rip-offs not match for air, and you have to keep away from them.

Fortunately for you, Protos is right here to speak about The Subsequent Crypto Gem and Killerwhales so that you don’t need to hassle watching them.

The following (very well-hidden) crypto gem

The Subsequent Crypto Gem, created by the team behind such hits as Magnificence and the Boss (?) and Actuality of Love (??), billed itself as a crypto model of Shark Tank meets The Apprentice and featured three controversial judges — Layah Heilpern, George Tung, and Brian Evans. The trio have largely made cash by advertising cryptocurrencies and being social media influencers.

The essential idea is {that a} bunch of initiatives compete for a US greenback money prize — one thing all of them desperately want.

According to a CoinDesk article, the present was imagined to be out there for Amazon Prime customers however doesn’t seem on the platform. You possibly can, nevertheless, discover it on George Tung’s (aka ‘CryptosRUs’) private YouTube channel, the place the modifying staff unintentionally left in a break for commercials that fairly actually simply says “Break.” Clearly, manufacturing worth is excessive on the agenda for Crypto Gem.

When requested what he hoped the present would supply for its viewers, director Justin Bellow stated, “Individuals can lastly get educated about what cryptocurrency is,” including, “I feel as soon as sufficient folks be taught concerning the business they’ll be just a little bit extra inclined to wish to participate in it… as a result of many of the information you hear about crypto is unfavourable.”

Spoiler alert: it doesn’t accomplish any of this.

As an alternative, The Subsequent Crypto Gem is an embarrassing exposé of a handful of unhealthy cryptocurrency initiatives being judged by three individuals who know nothing about beginning a enterprise from the bottom up.

The judges spend time arguing, however any variations between these poorly thought-out initiatives can be imperceptible to anybody in anyway: they’re all bullshit!

Killerwhales’ killer fails

Subsequent up is Shark Tank-like actuality present Killerwhales, which options each poisonous crypto influencer you by no means wished to listen to from once more. In an unlimited set, serial scammer Mario Nawfal, pump and dumper Ran Neuner, SBF bestie Anthony Scaramucci, and lots of equally atrocious ‘influencers’ sit on large leather-based chairs and decide contestants who convey to the desk such ground-shaking improvements as “reimagining water” and “the artwork of recycling.”

The trailer reveals the judges spewing throwaway traces, many fairly actually ripped from Shark Tank (as an illustration, “For that cause I’m out”), contestants suggesting “if we fail, the world is f*cked,” and, after all, folks getting upset and excited.

Sadly, once more, the present does nothing to assist clarify what crypto is or why it’s vital. It fails to clarify why the judges they’ve chosen are the tumors of the business they’re pretending to talk on behalf of.

As an alternative of constant to do Shark Tank-style pitch-a-thons it’d behoove the crypto business to provide a unique sort of present subsequent time they’re seeking to create successful that places eyeballs on Bitcoin, blockchain, and crypto normally.

Maybe a To Catch a Predator-like present the place a Chris Hanson-esque host brings cryptocurrency entrepreneurs to a home the place they’re provided half 1,000,000 in laundered cash. After they present up, they’re met by a few law enforcement officials who calmly say, “Sit down. What was on the agenda for tonight?
