JRR Token cryptocurrency

JRR Token cryptocurrency Can't Post

No, that's not a typo. I stumbled upon some online reports, including the esteemed American publication Entrepreneur, that the world is being graced with another digital currency. This time capitalizing on the good name of our beloved professor: $JRR.


I'm not linking to the actual sales website because this isn't an advertisement, and because I have no interest in such things (advertising or cryptocurrency), and because I don't want to suffer the wrath of the moderators!

But I do want to know two things:
1. Does this sound appealing to anyone?
2. Did the creators follow the proper legal channels? Having had a look at the website, there are many things - from the language, visuals, and music - that make me wonder about copyrights and trademarks.

Good to be concerned [In reply to] Can't Post

I have no idea about the legal cloud around something like this; but as someone who is quite a serious collector, I would not be interested in this. But it's not surprising that this would be pursued.

Thanks for the heads-up!
