    @stoolpresidente A lot of people are bagging on you, Dave, but it sounds like you genuinely don’t understand why #Bitcoin is valuable. I’m happy to spend an hour helping you understand why it is (it’s a hard topic).That hour you spent with the Winklevii was a huge waste of your time.

  • From BCBacker:

    I was recording a video two days ago issuing the statement that we are now “playing with fire” in regards to Bitcoin. Obviously, with power loss, it never made it to my channel.IMO, it still is playing with fire. A ~50% correction is looming now that we have approached $52,000.

  • From TheBlueMatt:

    I first learned about bitcoin ten years and a week ago, and started contributing in March. So much has been accomplished in ten years, and some of what was discussed back then is being built out todayBitcoin isn’t a race, but it’s great to see so many developers building on top
