The Bitcoin 5th column is real, and growing. Like deep cover Soviet moles but loyal to the ideals of a global individualist movement, not a socialist one.
We collect a regular paycheck, but watch the growing value of Bitcoin with more than idle interest. We might fit in as loyal corporate workers, but are secretly working to overthrow the economic system that allows the bourgeois management class to rule. Our manifestos come from Tim May and Eric Hughes. Builders of the world, unite!

.@Bisq v1.5.5 shipped with support for charting USD-denominated trade volumes.
Previously volume charts were denominated only in BTC.
Toggling to USD gives a better sense how much more value is being transacted over time.
If anyone still doubts the home of the free and land of the brave 🇺🇸 is becoming an authoritarian dictatorship....

@jon @orionwl @max_1337 We really need people to be facing criminal fraud charges for this nonsense. The difference between 99% survival and 99.9% is very significant for society. Lying about things like that to pad your own pockets is evil.
If we don't, it will happen again. And it has happened before: H1N1 turned out to be overhyped.
