I wrote about the recent wave of social media censorship, the community's search for alternatives, and the importance of not ceding the public square.

Thank you to the fine folks at @bitcoinmagazine!

Sorry everyone; this dip is my fault.
I finally got around to putting my govt bribe checks into bitcoin this morning and it's been dropping like a rock ever since.

I know that it's not great for decentralization, but I like the idea of bitcoiners all staying together on the bitcoinhackers server.

@nvk, is there a way to mirror your server so if you go down ppl can still connect? Maybe do a little load balancing?

It's interesting that no one seems to even know what format all the people want who are fleeing Twitter and FB censorship.

To any coders out there trying to make a decentralized app for them to flee to, why not start by cloning FB & Twitter, binding them together, and just make that app node-based like bitcoin is?

Hey @bitcoinhackers, I was permanently banned on Twitter over the weekend and I refuse to create a new account.

Can you guys please boost this so I can find and reconnect with people, thanks!

Our Satoshi who art unknown, Pseudo be thy nym.Thy block come, Thy Tx will be confirmed on chain as it is in mempool. Give us this day our daily sats, and forgive us our address reuse, as we forgive those who attempt double-spends against us, and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from fiat. For the blockchain, the scarcity and the sovereignty are ours,
For now and ever.
Hodl. []

Somebody tell Spencer Schiff that he should join BitcoinHackers and talk all the shit about his dad he wants without Peter seeing it.

The key use case of twitter is red pilling normies. What will the key use case of bitcoin mastodon be?

Just after Christmas I polled Twitter to see when people thought Bitcoin would have its first $10k daily candle. Most people said this summer:

In fact it happened on Jan 10th! (Just in the wrong direction)

Now that firefox is showing signs of censorship, a quick search shows me two mostly decentralized internet browsers that look pretty solid...

Anyone use these guys? Which do you prefer?

Now that we've got a Twitter replacement, wouldn't hurt to try Briar, a fully P2P chat replacement:

Anyone ever ask you how, why, or since when has Bitcoin been a Store of Value? Show 'em this:

Why should I stick on Facebook if they're doing what they're doing? Why should I keep giving them data, when data is their business model?

Because they've shown what data they don't want. They banned The Free Thought Project. They banned CopBlock. They unpublished independent journalists...

So if this is what they seek to ban, it's because they want to sanitize their platform. And that's where everyone who could be a corrupting influence has power.

Inundate them. Be the bigger storm.

Unpopular opinion: bcash is the best thing that happened to Bitcoin

It has been a very bad execution of one of the most dangerous attacks Bitcoin could receive. Thanks to its inevitable failure, now also other better executed internal attacks are very likely to fail, increasing the robustness of Bitcoin

Naomi's done it again... Although I am firmly in the camp of pronouncing HODL as "Hod-l," not "Hoe-dl."

Finally releasing the first episode of my animated series exploring common Bitcoin topics from an approachable (and maximalist 😉) POV.

Bears are trying to get us below $5800 tonight... Best game in town.

For those not following the market, if they win tonight, we could go much lower. But if they can't break the 5800 line, we'll very likely never see these prices again and you can expect a lot of buying tomorrow.
