To put it quite simply, the problems with the world today that is clearly the solution to are so blatantly obvious that if you haven't done your homework and bought some bitcoin, I don’t have the time to try to convince you, sorry.

Chicago-based Athena Bitcoin set to install about 1,000 ATMs for the purchase and sale of #bitcoin in El Salvador 🇸🇻

If the majority were based on one-IP-address-one-vote, it could be subverted by anyone able to allocate many IPs. Proof-of-work is essentially one-CPU-one-vote.

One of China's biggest miners sent us this message after shutting off his Sichuan machines.

"This is good news. There is no policy that can influence #Bitcoin."

There's no better evidence of Libertarians loving losing than their need to hate on #Bitcoin.

Have fun losing.

Paraguay looks to follow El Salvador’s lead, will present a #bitcoin bill next month!

Slowly, then all at once.

Roger Waters reads an email live at a Free Assange event from zuckerberg asking to use Another Brick in the Wall song in ads.
His simple answer is "Fuck you!"

Apologies to who ever I sniped this from, I don’t recall your username.

Guys, there is literally no point in arguing with nocoiners - especially ones that have been nocoining for a decade. Nocoiners bring nothing to the table and just exist to hate Bitcoin. They're not going to understand what's happening in El Salvador or Bitcoin Beach.

University of Seville professor @isantiagoPhD: Bitcoin will mean "liberation" from foreign economic influence in El Salvador.

"Without a doubt, it can be replicated in many other countries."

We are experiencing the first real attacks on Bitcoin by TPTB. For years it was just gold bugs and finance guys. Now it's central banks, governments, MSM, and their useful idiots.

I think it's fair to have that temptation to get involved in shitcoinery. You see shitcoins going up 10x and you think I could buy that shitcoin and get more .

But you don't do it.

A) It won't work and you end up with less Bitcoin

B) You are supporting a system that slows Bitcoin adoption

Oil is breaking out of a 13 year bear market. Good news if you're an investor. Bad news if you're a consumer lol. $100 oil is probably going to be a thing this year. I'm old enough to remember how much that sucked the last time it was at those prices. Throw some inflation on top of that and we're going to be seeing some crazy gas prices.

This server was setup as a means to decentralize the Bitcoin social networking community in a small way. I came from The administrator there felt that the users should create their own Mastodon instances to keep the community decentralized so I created this instance.
