This is the first time we have heard about financial persecution for defending internet freedom in the Tor community. We're very concerned about PayPal's lack of transparency, and we urge them to reinstate this user’s account.
Anyone else see the pipeline hack and now the meat processing company hack and start to think it's time to go full prepper?
I'm thinking a propane generator, some space heaters, and a lot of non-perishable foods. Not enough to keep me going if the shit really hits the fan but enough to keep like my house from being destroyed if the next hack is an energy supplier (which seems inevitable).
Organizations like the WEF and central banks like the FED will have you work until the day you die if they get their way. You'll own nothing and the global elites will enjoy the fruits of your labor. Opt out of their system, be self sovereign, and use #Bitcoin.
If PayPal withdrawals actually come to pass I think it's absolutely huge. This is a legacy establishment that is properly supporting #Bitcoin ( besides KYC of course). It feels like the turning of the tides and a huge win for self custody.
If #bitcoin were at $320,883 per coin, the US government would need all of them to cover this years budget proposal. 🤡
Global Central Banks and their continued debasement into infinity. Look at Europe (ECB) go!
The whole "origins of covid" debate was a big redpill for me.
Do I *know* the origins of covid? No. But I saw in February of 2020 significant evidence from people smarter than me about the lab theory. I saw published papers disappeared from the internet. I saw medical professionals banned from twitter. I saw paid CCP shills on reddit (including moderators). I saw hastily written articles by "administrator" type scientists from NGOs with no scientific analysis and cursory reasoning.
Then, one year later, oops. Actually we should investigate.
Will the people who pulled papers apologies to the people who wrote them? Will twitter issue a mea culpa for banning people? Will the journalists that called other journalists conspiracy theorists promise to do more reasoned investigations in the future and focus on facts rather than pushing narratives?
No, none of that will happen.
While I can't conclusively tell anyone one way or another about the origins of covid, I can say that the system is broken. Dispassionately pursuing truth has been replaced with pushing narratives, character assassination and censorship. If you spend most of your time on big tech platforms, and read only "approved" media, you are just allowing yourself to have other people, with their own ideological motivations, shape your reality. I can't / won't do that.
I'm mostly trying to get increasingly comfortable with the idea that I don't know. Maybe what person A said is true. Maybe its person B. More likely some mix of the two. Hopefully time will tell. Less likely, but possible, that the people that tried to twist the truth will win the narrative war, and everyone will move onto the next battle. It is what it is. I'll be here building my house on rock and and raising the next generation, and the world will burn as it is wont to do.
How much exposure does average dev or coiner has to bitcoin?
Some there lives savings.
If #bitcoin fails, they screwed.
Billionaires laugh at that, they can play u on both sides, while never *loose* a thing, maybe a bit ego,
But there kids will still go to elite high school and they will not sleep in the streets.
What we need fast is a community pool non profit miner integrated in core of last resort we can spawn up at demand, and yield all our GPU or ASICS on click to, if censorship starts.
This "Elon Crash" was really needed. Shitcoins were reaching more ridiculous valuations than usual and there was too much leverage in #Bitcoin
If Bitcoin can't handle a sociopath billionaire's shitposts there were more weak hands that needed to be cycled out for true hodlers.
Just a bitcoin lizard trying to gobble up some sats.
This server was setup as a means to decentralize the Bitcoin social networking community in a small way. I came from bitcoinhackers.org. The administrator there felt that the users should create their own Mastodon instances to keep the community decentralized so I created this instance.
