"Eric Weinstein is not really an academic, he is an academically-oriented performer, and there is a large part of this entire debacle that is purely performative.
...spouting off grand and all-encompassing theories without having understood it, and without offering anything workable as an alternative, will make you no friends and will influence nobody.
...Your theory of everything is a subset of Bitcoin."
Anyone who didn't have enough insight to tell you to buy #Bitcoin doesn't have enough insight to give good advice on if or when to sell it.
If a greedy attacker is able to assemble more CPU proof-of-worker than all the honest nodes, he would have to choose between using it to defraud people by stealing back his payments, or using it to generate new coins. He ought to find it more profitable to play by the rules, such rules that favour him with more new coins than everyone else combined, than to undermine the system and the validity of his own wealth.

When is the last time you heard an altcoiner talk about multisig? Security? $5 wrench attacks? Yea, they gloss over it at best. Actions speak louder than words.
#Bitcoin holders are obsessed with security because they value it highly.
As a podcaster my job is to go promote my show to an audience wherever I can find that audience. If that means I have to go on normie platforms (LinkedIn Facebook Twitter YouTube etc) to try and teach them bitcoin and orange pill them, so be it.
But where I see opportunities to shill bitcoin fediverse, I will do it. I hope more people will be open to the idea as twitter continues its downfall.
