Signal app is not a panacea. Be careful. Two strikes against it:
1) unnecessary phone number KYC 2) it's vulnerable to OS level logging via soft-keyboard. Signal knows the vulnerability but doesn't warn users. Why is that?

Hey @bitcoinhackers, I was permanently banned on Twitter over the weekend and I refuse to create a new account.

Can you guys please boost this so I can find and reconnect with people, thanks!

The only bitcoin that is 'unfairly distributed' is that which has been stolen from its rightful owner - the owner who mined it with their own electricity, or acquired it through voluntary trade.

@nicstheses
Bitcoiners are:

1. Gamblers playing with magic internet tokens

2. Greedy people who won't share their wealth

3. Ocean boilers

4. ISIS enablers

5. 'Eco-terrorists'

Guys, this guy says will never be a true currency.

Guess it is time to call quits. His opinion is obviously very important!

Imagine a future with an organization that:

- Oversees every transaction you make
- Controls where and how you can spend your money
- Can just take your money and use it as it wish

That’s the future central bankers plan, and you only have one alternative.

@jeremy @Bitcoinlabrador @LaserHodl A land tax alone won't pay for lazy bastards to sit at home scratching their asses.

@jeremy @Bitcoinlabrador @LaserHodl Bitcoin can also be plausibly deniable. Very different from the mob breaking into your home and seizing the gold stashed under your bed.

@hn

Bummer.

Guess it's less drugs, more stacking sats for now.

I am increasingly perplexed as to how a Left even exists.

They build custodial bitcoin solutions. Don't make the mistake of inviting in the trojan horse of inflation. Any custodial solution can run fractional reserves, and it becomes easier the bigger they get.

When they are auditable might be a different story.

@TkRoots Not all companies have high profit margins. In fact, if some companies with tight profit margins changed their unit of account to Satoshis, they'd probably realize they're making a loss compared to simply holding.

Unit of account bias is real. Your brain on fiat is losing you money.

If you have the fiat to buy the car, buy bitcoin instead. Get the car on finance. Pay the monthly repayments from your day job.

Every dollar not put into bitcoin is a lost opportunity. If you pay$10k for a car now and bitcoin does 10x over the next 4 years, that's like spending $100k on a car. If you get credit for 4 years you'll probably end up paying about $4k in interest.

Bitcoin only needs to appreciate by 40% in 4 years to break even
