What the fiat system does to savings is a lot like encouraging or forcing everyone to drive around on empty all the time for the sake of "efficiency."
Fiat drains your tank whether you want it to or not. #Bitcoin fills it up.
Sometimes I just want to shake people and say:
HEY! While you've been distracted by orange Hitler and Kung Flu, your life savings is evaporating, your livelihood is in serious jeopardy, and everything you want to better your life is increasing about 15-20% a year with no end in sight while your salary increases ~5% if you're lucky.
WAKE THE FUCK UP
When working for government becomes a serious financial burden which requires asking for all funding & support - only then will we have good government.
Of course, "government" of that sort would also be completely indistinguishable from any other voluntarily funded organization that competes to serve people or dies.
I started listening today to @TheCryptoconomy podcast (http://cryptoconomy.life/) reading of Iterative Capital's “Thesis” paper (https://iterative.capital/thesis/) and highly recommend it.. great history and background of crypto and analyzed in a way I haven’t heard before, as a long time tech minion their conclusions really resonated
Bitcoin has to survive everything, including insider information and trading.
The world is full of people who will make a buck at any chance they get; of corrupt insiders, politicians and news media.
It's the world we live in. If Bitcoin can't handle this, then better off we start using gold covered chocolate coins that we can trade in the playground.
The hodler's who understand sound money, are making history at the moment.
Traders will just be making money, which is not the same thing.
@Shekelcoin I have tried Bisq - this is the future. Initially there was a surprise, however: for the first trade there needs to be an "escrow deposit". A user first has to fund his Bisq wallet with BTC before he can do a BTC trade. So get ready before the bear bottom 🙂
If you aren't podcasted out here is Trace Mayer speaking on the fork drama:
We still have a tech position open at the Freedom of the Press Foundation (a nonprofit): a Sr. Software Engineer position to work on SecureDrop, the open source whistleblower platform used by 65+ media organizations, originally developed by the late Aaron Swartz.
You get paid to work
✅ from anywhere in the world
✅ on a world-changing project
✅ that's open source,
✅ stewarded by a small team
✅ that's led by a woman.
Help spreading the word is much appreciated:

@Rejekts so you think a govt that employs more than 50% of the country either directly or via subsidy & breadlines hidden by snap & ebt, & politicians that get rich brokering power to politically connected corps & passing regs to squash their competitors, & hundreds of trillions of dollars in unfunded liabilities can all be walked back with votes?
