How you know people are getting bored of the #Bitcoin chop…

I’ve seen a lot of crypto interest recently. Oddly, I’ve also seen what seems to be contempt for the crypto-curious. Maybe it stems from past trauma or even appropriate caution in some contexts, but going forward, how we communicate is going to matter. This piece hits.
Crank up @MariahCarey , and let's celebrate with a trip down memory lane. Yangon Yultide discusses how we can infect more hosts with the righteous #crypto culture. bit.ly/3plWN0I

Wish I would have had this at the start of my journey…
Curious about #Bitcoin, but don’t know where to start? In the last few months, I’ve spent so much time reading, listening and learning about this fascinating new technology. And I’m just beginning to understand how powerful Bitcoin really is. Read on to learn why:

When an article muddies a previously simple (and erroneous) position... "Instead the point is, it’s complicated. QE and interest rates by themselves are significantly uncorrelated variables vs how much wealth concentration a country has, when comparing between countries."
My latest public article discusses the relationship between Fed QE and wealth concentration. It's more complex than common narratives often say, which is why I also dive into the fiscal details. lynalden.com/qe-and-inequali…
Nothing says lifelong, generational wealth like trading with leverage on-the-go. This makes me sad. People are going to get destroyed. I guess you gotta pay for ads somehow.

I just realized that over the course of the last six months, the daily image of a bull mounting a bear has become totally normalized for me. Thank you, #Bitcoin

I’ve never felt more inadequate than when I listen to @balajis… Balaji: Have you heard of…? Everyone else: I don’t think so… Balaji: Have you read…? Everyone else: No. Balaji: Have you seen…? Everyone else: …
NEW podcast episode is up! "Balaji Srinivasan (@balajis) on Bitcoin, The Great Awokening, Wolf Warrior Diplomacy, Open-Source Ecology, Reputational Civil War, Creating New Cities, and Options for Becoming a Sane but Sovereign Individual" tim.blog/2021/11/15/balaji-s… Enjoy! 🙌

“How you create money is very simple…” Putting aside the irony of this hilarious and frightening video for just a moment, I wonder if he’s ever thought about the premise of this idea as a problem.
Peter Praet, Chief Economist at ECB, attempting to explain how fiat money works. And they say #Bitcoin is complicated. 🤷 nitter.kavin.rocks/_d11n_/status/14…

Here’s the whole image…
The wealthy are least affected by inflation, they hold very little fiat money as a % of their net worth. It’s the lower income workers who suffer the most from this regressive stealth tax.

“Irrational optimism is as toxic as irrational pessimism.” Truer words. Both are evidence of a suspension of critical thought.
Replying to @SayBitcoiners
Engineers need to understand, absorb and *accept* problems. That's our only hope to find real solutions. Irrational optimism is as toxic as irrational pessimism, but far more alluring, as our self-worth is entangled with The Project. Thus continued vigilance. 4/6

So the reason a #Bitcoin futures ETF was approved was because it was operational and regulated to some extent under the CFTC. What in the hell does that have to do with “consumer protection” if it’s clearly a worse product for retail investors? piped.kavin.rocks/HIGskIcb7b4
While I appreciate the @BlockFi gesture of “rewarding” customers an equal share of 5 #Bitcoin, getting $6 worth of #BTC, which barely covered the spread they charged, is maybe the worst promo I’ve experienced. It will also be the last deposit I make on @BlockFi.

Ask yourself, who controls capital in the world right now? Then ask yourself, how are they positioning themselves? You’ll often hear how important it is to “exercise caution” as it pertains to #Bitcoin, but if you can’t see what’s coming, I don’t know what to tell you.
I really like that you parsed out the underlying implications of adopting a “step back from the line” narrative. If laws were serving people, not institutions or industry incumbents, what would they look like?
/1 The SEC has a very difficult task with respect to crypto. It hasn't been perfect, but it's a tough challenge. B/c of that, I do think it's important to be respectful and professional... but these "walk back from the line" comments are so worrying to me...

I think @saylor understands two things better than most when conveying ideas about #Bitcoin. First, the power of metaphor. Second, the importance win-win framing. Orange-pilling people is not about being right. It’s about appealing to the human propensity for narrative.

In honor of the $SQUID rug, my brother-in-law are going in… Unfortunately, neither of us are developers. You think @fiverr could save us?
@kevinjkuehn and I are working on the white paper for our new #memecoin Beta Uncapped Technology Transfer Holding Optimized Liquid Exchange - can't wait for it to release

Hey @Google, can we get a conversion from USD to #Satoshi? You’ve got it for #Bitcoin. It’s time.

This article is interesting though I don’t think #Bitcoin ’s value proposition changes even if the political system weren’t broken. Even if monetary debasement were not underway, #Bitcoin  is still the best money ever invented. yahoo.com/finance/news/peter…
