Coinbase and DropBox original HN pitch links
By - heldsteel7
Felt like witnessing history
Dropbox is a great example of pitching to the wrong audiance, a lot of people had doubts. It was to simple and not needed, not thinking like a consumer who is not going to setup an FTP server
Unfortunately for the Dropbox post, it no longer has a working link to see their application.
Why did you delete this?
Coinbase is a scam
Essentially taking advantage of a Ponzi to waste the resources of some of the smartest people in the world to create something utterly useless into money land grab.
Blockchain technology is fine. Crytpo is an abomination.
Dropbox is fine. But nothing too amazing.
