@BitcoinBelle Ah, I see. Thanks for elaborating, that makes sense to me. I am definitely more paranoid about bitcoin transactions than I am about exchanging fiat with a random merchant; there is a gigantic “trust” component there.
I hate the term “crypto.” I think this move to Mastodon proves that bitcoin maximalists are ready to jettison this hopelessly-vague term.
Bitcoin alone is the only viable cryptocurrency; everything else is either a scam or inconsequential. Draw a line in the sand and start using bitcoin-centric terminology. It’s already confusing enough for the uninitiated to understand this stuff anyways, so make a point to say “bitcoin” instead of “crypto.”
@BitcoinBelle Care to elaborate more on why you believe it is more permissionless than trustless? I’m genuinely curious.
@vortex Welcome, glad you made it over here.
@BitcoinBelle Stoked to hear of the good things you were able to do with bitcoin. This segues nicely into a topic that I’ve wanted to discuss for a while now.
I want to start a discussion on how bitcoin will affect society as a whole once it’s more widely adopted. In what ways do you believe bitcoin will change society (either for good or bad)? Specific examples would be helpful.
@m I tried out Amaroq also but found it slightly more confusing than Tootdon. Couldn’t find user search button anywhere.
@mydogisahusky yep, I have a hard time believing it too.
