Think of buying Bitcoin as an act of OPTing OUT.
No one should feed the monster by using its tool to become even bigger and even more reckless against its "own" ppl.
If you don't OO it's just like "bow down before the one you serve you're going to get what you deserve." (NIN)
Every single one has the duty to call out scams, build some stuff, educate and inform about #Bitcoin‘s potential to get some more folks on the right track leaning onto freedom and sovereignty.
Circumstances _are_ not set in stone...and never will if we are working on them tirelessly to change for good.
Give an open equivalent, #OpenNMT (Open Neural Machine Translate) a try! There's a live #translation page (similar to Google Translate) at:
Why risk everything on some sleezy ETF from Wall Street - when with a little learning you can learn to hold REAL bitcoin safely and securely all by yourself? Try the @Coldcard wallet and learn to store your Bitcoin properly. Encrypted SDRAM backup and BIP 174 compliant. Cold Card wallet needs no website or computer to operate, unlike Trezor or Ledger. The security chips use secure elements, and pins can be programmed to brick the wallet in a duress situation.

Very much worth the time!
"I like to be intolerant!"
A needed perspective on remembering to keep a laser focus on Bitcoin's use case.
The more we talk about the Ideology and politics around it, the more adversaries and attack vectors we create.
Bitcoin is code. It is a public database which solved the issue of digital scarcity.
It is a tool that serves its users and no other master.
Legal precedent states code is speech and speech is protected. Let's not forget.
@mydogisahusky @Strong_Hands_HODL FIAT The biggest scam in history. To create money out of thin air, and then to charge interest on it, should be a crime. And yet no government, in any country every tries to change it. I guess Kennedy was a clear sign of what happens if you try to change the 'System'. As George Carlin said .....
Seems like as if all big trade treaties were just installed to sell out human labour costs, to minimize those that far - combined w/ CB's interventions (QEs, Zero interest rates, "too big to fail" bail outs...) - to wipe out the middle class in western nations.
Compared w/ today the Golden 50ies have become an unreachable illusion!
Clinton sold out the US of A.
There is no world wide regulation possible as there is no world wide jurisdiction!
Those embracing new technologies will be the most prosperous nations in the future.
It‘s just as simple as that _and_ it is the 1st time in history for 3rd world nations to surpass the high developed ones... - the 1st time ever!
Imagine that shift being played out...
Desired by whom... your citizens...you liars!
"So you think that money is the root of all evil. Have you ever asked what is the root of all money?" - Ayn Rand #bitcoin
I'm just wondering...

Looks as if the newest TA tool for measuring Bitcoin's success is the 🤡 Indicator.
The more self-proclaimed BTC Rock Stars... known as Clowns entering the space the more the adoption cycle has progressed.
Less intellectuals more builders is what BTC needs
As Bitcoin _is_ software and software _is_ free speech Bitcoin as money _is_ an obvious vote; this time it‘s on you... - it‘s your choice.
A mastodon instance for Bitcoin Maximalists.
No scams, no shitcoin, no impersonation, no begging, and no illegal content.
Keep it civil and we should all survive :)
