I sincerely hope enough people in Turkey had reserves in bitcoin. Maybe they will educate and encourage their peers. I hope it's not too late. My suspicion is that it is.
The only positive that can come out of a country expanding its money supply is exposing the central bank's deplorable control over the people and educating and offering them a sound alternative.


@Tbone Even with the Lira inflation, Bitcoin has not recovered from ATH.

@TeringNering But the Lira shows no sign of a recovery. As long as the protocol is protected, bitcoin has to increase in value relative to inflationary currencies at some point. Bitcoin also gives the people the last resort option of exiting the country with any sort of wealth.

@TeringNering @Tbone assuming everyone bought all their bitcoins in Dec17/Jan18 yes. But in reality just a small % did that.
