Deactivated my twitter. Fed up of being tagged there and messaged there after 2 years of zero public activity. I generally somewhat hate that site, all the more so because of the political bullshit, but even worse is that 90% of the bitcoin-related content has degenerated into lowest common denominator crap.
Only kept the account up till now because it's easier to read that way, and that 10% or 5% of stuff I want to know about is usually posted there first.

Watching eth stakeholders make every mistake bitcoiners have intentionally avoided is gold.
Provides clear context re: the value prop of bitcoin compared to altcoins. Now we have a perfect case study to point to when questioned whether bitcoin's current path forward is the best option:
-Move slow, and conservative.
-Prioritize censorship resistance and robustness.
-Scale using layers.
-Avoid hard forks at all cost.
-Don't fuck with supply schedule.
-Keep it simple, stupid.
Excited to announce a new weekly pod w/ @martybent. Plan is to record tuesdays and drop them on wednesdays.
It is complementary to his outstanding TFTC21 interviews and will live in the same feed. Basically a week-in-review style show w/ whiskey. Feedback is appreciated.
