    Bitcoin is digital gold?Gold FAILED.The Gold Standard failed. Gold’s failure lead to fiat.Why? It was centralised. When governments ran out of gold, money decoupled from gold and we got fiat.Bitcoin is decentralised gold, it removes gold’s failures.

  • From PrestonPysh:

    @jokoono To put this on the record. We hire artists to do sketches – I don’t even know if they are bitcoiner. My team is having this fixed. Unlike you, I didn’t see this when my team published it. They are fixing it. Our show is a Bitcoin only show. Bitcoin cash is obviously a scam.
