As an athlete, you’ve got to do the hard work… i.e. getting in the weight room even if you don’t feel like it.⁣ ⁣ As a bitcoiner, you’ve got to do the hard work… i.e. increasing your daily DCA buys when #btc drops.⁣ #StackSats ⁣ cc: @SwanBitcoin @coryklippsten

I’m bringing on @Bquittem tomorrow to chat #Bitcoin and talk to him about his latest article. What else should I ask him?

Blockchains don’t inherently produce immutability, censorship resistance, etc. Bitcoin’s desirable properties *emerged* from the system. Satoshi’s genius was combining existing tech in a novel way. Each component is required and “the whole is greater then sum of its parts.”

Understand the constellation of technologies which enabled Bitcoin’s valuable properties to emerge 👇
Satoshi Nakamoto cites 8 references in the Bitcoin white paper. Each one uniquely influencing the design of the Bitcoin protocol. In this thread we’ll explore what they are and why they’re important. 🔎

" I'm done with COVID" is short for: "Continuing draconian restrictions at this moment is inflicting far more damage on vulnerable populations (especially kids) than benefit, and I will no longer participate in your inability to consider trade-offs" 🧵

If you can think, and speak, and write, you are absolutely deadly. Nothing can get in your way.

The “elites” view YOU as an impediment to their plans.
The World Economic Forum's Great Narrative Conference: "The good news is the elite across the world trust each other more and more... the bad news is that the majority of people trusted that elite less..."

Understanding why bitcoin is net positive for the environment is tricky because it requires a decent grasp of energy/energy markets AND proof of work. This article is a great overview bitcoinandenergy.medium.com/…

Fact check: Bitcoin consumes a small fraction of 1% of global power today compared to the WEF's 2017 statement that it would consume all of it by now. A lot of these estimates and articles unfortunately come from folks who don't understand how Bitcoin works.
In 2020 Bitcoin will consume more power than the world does today wef.ch/2BsYlOh
