So, Bloomberg just did a live event about Cryptocurrencies. 30 minutes in I heard this: "People are asking about other currencies, but we are focusing on Bitcoin."
And throughout the event they were sounding like real Bitcoin maximalists, at one point even pointing out that other currencies besides Bitcoin are useless.
@BitcoinBelle everyone is learning :-) it's amazing how it got there actually, I was expecting much more "Bitcoin is evil, private blockhains are possible" and it was the opposite!
@badger I am probably a jaded curmudgeon but I don't believe legacy and institutional banking is just going to capitulate. I see this time more as the sunny beach day between the tsunami and the flood that wiped everyone out.
@mydogisahusky At the time that I first published it, I had one of the top 5 most popular Twitter accounts in bitcoin. I also had 2 whales offer to buy 1000 books each for bitcoin to hand out to people at conferences. Sooooo. At .03 btc each, I would have done quite wellThat was the reason for my decision. It had nothing to do with not using my real name.
I get it. I'm just giving you my reaction, actually looked it up by that name on Amazon. When I saw it listed, saw the cover, my first reaction was NO. Don't want it. Crazy bitcoin people. Think they can write novels. (My family has a lot of authors, my sister and a guy named "Sir Walter Scott"- from the1800's)
I think you understand.
Anyway, I'll read the book, it will take awhile, I'll get back to you.
