@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.

@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.

If you just started following me, know that my goal is to shamelessly spread pro-bitcoin propaganda to whomever and in whatever capacity possible.

If that offends you, please unfollow me right now. Thanks!

You think bitcoin is cool because you can exchange it for fiat? Take a step back and look at the bigger picture.

Bitcoin is cool because it will eventually pressure the world’s governments to adapt decentralized, distributed-consensus governance models.

@m I tried out Amaroq also but found it slightly more confusing than Tootdon. Couldn’t find user search button anywhere.

Using Tootdon on iOS. Notifications are pretty crappy. Doesn’t even alert you in the app when someone commented on your post. Anyone else having this problem?

tfw you remember that your friends kept telling you to buy bitcoin but you wouldn’t listen
