Imagine this: The year is 2014. You’re Satoshi. You created bitcoin 5 years ago and got it running. I’ll say for the sake of argument, you’re still alive at this time which is disputed.

How do you both ensure you never had an unfair advantage and effectively disappear from the face of the planet?

You format your hard drive, destroy your backups, and move on with your life, maybe even staying a key figure in bitcoin in another capacity.

The only thing I learned from Coinbase’s Learning thing is that all “crypto” is just trying to do 1 thing that bitcoin does better and ignore everything else

They’re laughing now, but I don’t want to see them get rekt

so im gonna hang out here for a while

dont ask what for and I won't have to lie

If you’re gonna let the rich tell you how your money works, why not just use fiat?

All it may take is the #2 coin becoming #3 for a while for everyone to start piling into BTC.

Few

I try not to post badly about things I don’t know about for fear of being “the Peter Schiff of” whatever

But the number of people shilling their 3 month old shitcoins on the other site with a bird logo?

Staggering

If you want to use a currency that has infinite supply, stick with the dollar.

Ether was created to pay to use the computers on the Ethereum Network

No one, and I mean no one, will want to accept it as money

dont sell your blood, sweat and tear-covered bitcoin to wall street this dip

rescue more

Your fortnightly reminder that CSW is a fraud and SV needs to be delisted

If the government actually sees bitcoin as a currency, they need to stop making us pay capital gains tax on it

They don’t charge capital gains on forex

Letting companies custody your crypto is like leaving a fat box of cash on a counter at a stranger’s house and making them promise to leave it all there and not take any

Bets on how many babies named “Satoshi” will be born in 2022?

Be very careful.

Big corporations WILL take advantage of people not knowing how bitcoin works to make the system work in their favor. PayPal is already doing it by making you sell your bitcoin to them for government money.

People who know how the system works need to call them out on it relentlessly.

I saw someone unironically ask if Tesla is going to buy ETH next

Tesla isn’t in the business of day trading shitcoins on Uniswap

Tesla, as a publicly traded company, is in the business of not losing money

Bitcoin fixes this

DAAAAAAAAAMN Tesla is out here stacking bitcoin while we’re stacking sats
