My millennial coworker when she saw my bitcoin themed zoom background, "Why all the little 'B's?"

We're still early.

Bitcoin solved my hatred for many things. Instead of hate, i can opt out of taxes, opt out of this Financial collapse, opt out of banks freezing my fucking accounts, opt out of my wife stealing half my money if she leaves me, opt out of estate/death tax, opt out of lawyers and Financial planners! Just opt out now!

@jimmysong do you have plans for a Thank God For Bitcoin audiobook?

I follow a lot of anarchists and agorists on the bird site. I'm leaving them behind, not following them here. Why do they all gotta be shitcoiners?

Peaceful non-cooperation has brought about two revolutions (that I know of) Gandhi in India and MLK In the USA. I'm here for the world wide peaceful non-cooperation revolution courtesy of Satoshi Nakamoto.

Unlike many braggadocious maximalists, I'm not 100% confident bitcoin will succeed. I live a mostly normie life. I stack sats when I can, but never more than I can stand to loose if it goes to zero tomorrow. I do it partly in the hope of a better world and partly as a hedge against money printer go brrrrrrr.

For me, Bitcoin has be er been about getting rich quick. It's always been about hope. Governments and powerful elites use fiat money for evil. Bitcoin is a hope for the separation of money and state.

We're still early. None of my IRL friends are remotely interested in bitcoin. I have stickers on my laptop and most of the time I wear a bitcoin cap. In the past 5 years, I've met six people who' heard of bitcoin--3 shitcoiners, 2 blockchain not bitcoin boomers, and one who bought a single bitcoin on coinbase after watching some mainstream news show.

The American experiment failed not because humans are incapable of governing themselves, but because they can’t mind their own business. They insist on governing others.

I haven’t been here in a while. I figure censorship is only going to get worse so I better make sure my account here is active. I don’t want to miss the real news once bitcoiners start getting booted from Twitter.

My teenager asked if I would show him how to use @Bisq today after work.

I have a lightning node that currently has no open channels. Is there a strategy I should be using to open channels? Should I find a shop on 1 ML that I think I’ll be likely to business with? Should I find a node like me that doesn’t have a channel open and open a channel with it? Should I open one with tippin.me?

What a bad (frankly, embarrassing) day for constitutional and fiscal conservatism. The Senate confirms Bill Barr as attorney general, congressional leaders conspire to advance a $333 billion wasteful spending bill, and @[email protected] plans to declare an emergency for a non-emergency. 🤦‍♂️

I used a Coinstar machine to convert change into bitcoin. The user experience was poor and I got raped in fees, but had fun anyway.

@402PaymentRequired I’ve been watching your Wasabi videos. Suppose someone has coinbase coins on a Ledger Nano S. They send those coins to Wasabi for anonymizing. Is generating a new wallet with the ledger sufficient to store the Wasabi coins, or does the ledger need reset or is an entirely new hardware wallet needed to ensure anonymity?
