suggestion: 32-bit money
if you have over $4294967295, your balance overflows and you're back to zero.
@devurandom this should be twice more than enough:
@devurandom this is great because it’s all meritocratic so they’ll be back to being rich in no time, right?
@devurandom I believe it was Larry Niven who suggested recycling nuclear waste into money with a list of benefits: Makes it useful again, the need for lead lined wallets/purses and lead lined gloves for handling cash would bring an end to pickpocketing, and hoarding of money would become a self-punishing activity.
@devurandom Since all central banks strive for some inflation, the max amount of wealth owned by a single person then is reduced over time, which may or may not desirable depending on your political leanings. (Or the worth of money is practically reduced to zero given hyper-inflation, but that tends to be the case anyway.)
