Our goal was to sneak Bitcoin through the backdoor via opentimestamps, sidechains and tokenized securities and digital assets on colored coins (which anyway we planned on developing scalable protocols for if sidechains didn't work out).
To be fair I *never* advocated for blockchain tech or tokens. I was lucky to have visionnary mentors as part of a closed-door guild of early adopters.
I was complicit in my ambiguity and nonchalance though, and in using blockchain in my branding as a way to get banking relationships.
I intend on correcting this mistake though
High school reunion and some of my old friends were inspired by my Facebook Bitcoin posts and now looking into "blockchain tech" for their respective industries. "IOTA looks promising" "We're looking into ETH/EOS for healthcare automation".
We created a monster, inadvertently, like nuclear engineers with the atom bomb (well not really because those actually work). Is it our responsibility to destroy it, or does everyone have to take the hero's journey alone?
Bitcoin adopting protip: pretend you don't have cash at bar (or if you're like me forget your wallet at home) ask your friends to pay for you in exchange for bitcoins. Wallet setup takes 5 minutes and everyone gets excited, feels like doing something naughty.
Nocoiner becomes holder.
Gradually their brain rewires.
One of us, one of us.

Over 120 miles traveled to get Quebec's best Wagyu Rib steak, cooked religiously over 5h old hardwood fire, to discuss the future of Bitcoin. Good meat, good wine, good money.
This Quebec member of parliament elected in my riding is an actual communist. Years ago we battled him in court for the RIGHT to be reimbursed the coerced *mandatory* membership fees paid to ANTIFA student unions that *enforced* student strike against me my $ (and physical force)). We lost because he got backed by billionaire worker's unions. Now he's my "voice at the National Assembly".
Why am I still in Quebec?
Any communist-free country out there with lots of sun?
It's going to recover... Right... ?
From coup d'état probability assesment to steak talk in less then a few minutes. Typical Thursday night in bitcoinland.
I may just be using a bad UI app. I'm using mastalab right now. A bit hard to navigate compared to web

It's gotten too weird.
