Breaking news: Bitcoin bans China
While Facebook's Libra doesn't compete against any open, public, permissionless, borderless, neutral, censorship-resistant blockchains, it *will* compete against both retail banks and central banks. This is going to be fun to watch.
Elon Musk is the new John McAfee in crypto

Remove Whatsapp from your devices, it's spyware.

Whatever your reason for being in crypto, now is the time for:
Lot's of people have lost lots of money recently and it is not helpful to make empty promises, share shitty memes, or criticize others' choices.
On January 3, 2009, the #bitcoin experiment began. The world was changed forever. The separation of money and state became a real possibility for millions, billions. Thank you, Satoshi, Hal Finney, and all of the other earliest bitcoin experimenters.
Happy 10th Birthday, Bitcoin!
A more detailed explanation of the whole
"A double-spend broke Bitcoin" FUD that was circulated by an irresponsible publication.
Just FYI: The ICO, IEO, "influencer marketing", endorsement, "advisor" etc emails and DMs have started flooding in again.
People are offering me (and many others) $25k to $250k for endorsement, review, tweets etc. I say no, many say yes.
SCAMS are coming. Be careful.
Robinhood is fucked. They managed to piss off people so much that Ted Cruz agrees with AOC (!) to have them investigated. twitter.com/tedcruz/status…..
Today has been a very long day from the moment I woke up.
I think I was able to help with Bitcoin education and knowledge, but the FUD is quite exhausting.
Thanks to all who helped!
I've been offered 10BTC to do an interview about HEX to show that it is not a scam.
I was not asked to disclose the payment. Draw your own conclusions.
This announcement is free.
Oh no, I've lost 800 followers who objected to my political posts about police brutality.
How am I going to give them my free education?
Fuck off turdblossoms, bootlickers, statists and bigots.
Apparently, a German person called "Jorg Molt" has been showing a selfie taken with me and telling people that we are friends

Fortunately, it's so hard to pull off and so likely to fail that unlike banks, there won't be a bailout here.
Those who fail security get to eat the cost.

At first glance the "Bitcoin Law" that passed the legislature in El Salvador looks like an historic moment. It's impact may not appear for a while but the world has a new global transnational & supranational currency
Every 10 minutes, the #Bitcoin heartbeat of the internet beats
Time to regulate "outsider trading"
We are now officially in the "bargaining" stage of the 5 stages of grief for traditional financial services.
In order to bargain, the financial industry made a deal with the devil and got a fake blockchain in return.
I am profoundly grateful for those who stuck with me through the three year bear market, supporting me financially to continue to do educational work and build my team. We are ready for this wave of newbies because of you.

This whole "what is ETH supply" thing is a silly gotcha that doesn't make much sense if you understand how Ethereum works. It's no better than the silly gotchas Schiff and Roubini level at bitcoin.
We can do better. Let's look at the details...
Look beyond the price. Look beyond the volatility. Look beyond the fad. Bitcoin is a revolutionary technology that will change the world forever.
In case it needs to be said: no double spend happened.
Some very bad reporting full of incorrect information happened, but that's a common occurrence.
A block was reorganized, that's also a common occurrence.
