Overheard on Twitter

Over on Twitter, here were the top tweets about Bitcoin:

  • From lawmaster:

    I love Ethereum and it’s still the largest portion of my portfolio along with Bitcoin. But if you swap Solana for Ethereum in ETH people tweets, it sounds exactly like how bitcoiners sound and exactly what those people used to make fun of.

  • From JeffBooth:

    In a free market, prices fall as technology does more of our labour. and because governments have chosen to disregard free markets and manipulate money to stop those prices from falling, #Bitcoin is bringing the free market to money.From there, everything changes.

  • From scottmelker:

    #Bitcoin is showing potential bullish divergence with RSI on each time frame I checked from the 4 hour to daily charts. The hope is to see it confirm on the 4 hour then each subsequent time frame. Unconfirmed for now.
