Why so negative ? You aren't obliged to play the game, just move on, if you don't like it. So why bother about a poorly run game ? There are enough other games you can play.
You can also lose money, if someone hacks into your online banking......so you better not use any money at all.
You are not gambling on any currency in the end. You don't need to be an agent or shareholder. You can be a manager, where you have to spend only very few money paying for transaction fees. On the other hand, as a manager, you will get a wage, which you can convert back to real money, if you like. Just wait for the game to be released and see, maybe you will like it in the end You seem to know next to nothing about cryptocurrencies, so save your judgement for later.
