Any 2nd amendment supporters here? I'm trying help Cody Wilson raise money for the lawsuits against Defcad.
Roger Ver is matching BCH donations and bitcoin .com is a partner.
I brought up the BCash issue with Cody on Twitter and we had this exchange: https://twitter.com/Ragnarly/status/1032043962314317824
Please consider donating some bitcoin. Defcad uses BTCPay Server instead of Coinbase or BitPay.
@Ragnarly Looks like he needs to raise quite a bit a fast, so, pecunia non olet. A questionable decision but hopefully BTC donations will far exceed bcash.
@dden Ahhh yes "pecunia non olet". Roger Ver's might be the exception 🤡
@zcopley Great video
@jeremy For all his fighting the good 2A fight, he doesn't seem very bright otherwise. Just angry and petulant. Not in his best interest to insult Bitcoiners, regardless of what he accepts or his dealings with Ver. Rednecks will redneck and you can only lead a horse to water...
Good luck to him.
Not saying he doesn't deserve support. But the 2A and my right to buy a gun will go on, regardless. I support the free speech aspect of this, as well. But the courts have already ruled in his favor, and if our decentralized tech is as good as we think, it wouldn't matter anyway. Shopify will seem trivial in 10-20 years. 3D code is out there. I just don't buy into the hero complex some have for him.
I live in California and the state has taken away many gun rights that are supposed to be protected by the constitution, but also Supreme Court rulings. These rights include concealed carry, open carry, 3-D printing, "assault weapons" and others.
The courts ruling in his favor could ultimately secure his case. But in the mean time, the state attorney generals are trying to drag him into court for hears. He had to take down the files.
Roger Ver is a known scammer and imo sociopath, who to serve his own greed and ego, attacked Bitcoin and betrayed the principles and protocol that made him rich in the first place. If we are the company we keep, what does that say about Wilson? I think it's valid to question Wilson's judgment. Perhaps Bitcoiners reluctance was wisdom, not miserly. Supporting the cause and the person are not one in the same.
@patmillertime @thewumbles @Ragnarly
Is this a serious question? Get a grip on yourself. If you want to donate Bitcoin to Cody, go ahead. Nobody is stopping you.
And your insinuation that if it doesn't make headlines, then it doesn't count, is immature trash lacking any broader thinking or context. Or if we don't kiss Cody's ass, we're all a bunch of sellouts, is equally dumb.
@jeremy @patmillertime @Ragnarly
@hiyitopatada @jeremy Cody is bright. His combativeness gives him the stamina and aggressiveness to fight the State. Yet this trait leads him to alienate allies sometimes, as in this case. OTOH he's right about bitcoiners not donating to his cause over the years and now - tough for me to hear, and disappointing.
@Ragnarly post an address.
@Sthaosin There's not static address to donate to Defense Distributed. They use BTC Payserver. Here's the website to donate: defcad.com/
@Ragnarly Seems to me Cody is lacking principle and doesn't care if he promotes morally flexible people who take advantage of other ppl. So for me he just demoted himself from an idealist trying to make things better to some troublemaker who doesn't care and just wants to play with his guns and be on TV.
@elcapitan I think Cody gets practical when he thinks it is the best option to accomplish his goals, which some would consider principled. I can't speak for him and can see the counterarguments to that line of reasoning.
@Ragnarly As far as I understand the thing he is doing, he is trying to shift the power of producing weapons from a central authority to everybody. Using a currency which is doing the exact opposite in terms of decentralisation and at the same time its proponents are scamming people shows that his priorities are somewhere else and everything he says regarding that should be talken with at least a grain of salt. This also shifts my prios regarding the time I spend following his project.
@Ragnarly I donated
@5tmgau Awesome! 🤠 Every bit helps.
The gun logo turning into a squirt gun is ridiculous. 🔫
@5tmgau Thank you. Did you have any trouble with BTC Payserver? It didn't work for me the first time. The transaction confirmed on the blockchain but not on BTC Payserver. Anyone here that can help?
@Ragnarly No, it went through fine.
There is a UX improvement opportunity when the payee (me) is using a mobile phone for both the btcserver payment request and to pay using a mobile wallet. Btcserver gave me a QR code, which is great, but because I was on my mobile already I could not use my mobile btc wallet to take a picture of the QR code. Hope that makes sense. I would be great if I could like copy the QR code and paste it in my mobile wallet.
@5tmgau I used the desktop app with a QR code.
@Ragnarly Why not make the donation through shapeshift or similar from bitcoin to BCasH. That way one can drain Rogers funds and its stille a btc donation as it registar from the shapeshit invoice it was really a bitcoin donation
@jacob Too much work. I just used bitcoin.
@Ragnarly That of course easier! I just like the thought of donating and simultaniatiosly taking some of Rogers money.
@Ragnarly heck yeah, I'm a supporter. I'll send him some BTC. I downloaded the blue print for the gun years ago, can't find it now :(.
