Stephen Diehl follows me, I can reply to his thread. What should I say lol. Probably will just get blocked.

I would say I’m more concerned about how fiat has been historically used to fund the military industrial war machine, and sound money has the opportunity to create a more peaceful society. But I guess opining on energy use and pyramid schemes is all critics have had for the past ten years. Yawn.


I like Steven, he’s a really good Haskell programmer. It’s a shame people don’t realize how bad the money printing is and why this technology exists in the first place. It’s going to be a struggle in the next couple decades for no coiners, I just feel bad for them. The fiat experiment is coming to an end, like it always does. If not Bitcoin hold hard assets, just do something or HFSP.

@jb55 If you want to actually engage with him I'd invite him for a 1 on 1. People tend to get defensive when your points publicly refute their entire worldview. Far more open to exploring implicit assumptions in a "off the record" environment.

@kekcoin blockchain money really soiled the Haskell community (strongly typed, pure functional programming was all the rage for smart contracts in the ICO boom). He’s just butthurt from that I think. He’s probably a lost cause. I used to try harder to make people care but now I just stack sats and enjoy the ride.

@jb55 @kekcoin Explanation probably a lot simpler, there's conflict of interest, he's working for a company in the financial industry.

@jb55 He may be a great dev but he is a fucking retard. And a statist on top of that since he want Biden to prevent Americans from being involve in Bitcoin (lol)

@jb55 @Seccour It's easy to be (unknowingly) lured into statism if the state has mostly worked out well for you. Also, non-centralized alternatives are generally speaking hard and you might still need to rely on the centralized status quo in the meantime.

@jb55 @Seccour We’re going to see a lot of communists push for the banning of Bitcoin as the price rises. Bitcoin is fundamentally at odds with their principles.

@alan8325 @jb55 @Seccour Call them feudalists already. *They* want *their* bitcoin, but you're not supposed to have *yours*...

You could fund stuff that hurts them, and you know they're making that illigal wherever they can.
