Greg Maxwell: "Anyone involved in Bitcoin development is at risk of being subjected to multiple multi-billion dollar lawsuits. ... In this climate I wouldn't expect any substantial protocol changes to get competent review". reddit.com/r/Bitcoin/comm…
As with any tech revolution, investment $$ are moving from early stage goods to later stage goods: Crude oil Drillers => Refiners => Electricity/Petrol => Cars/Plastics BTC => Miners => B2B hardware => Consumables twitter.com/IIICapital/sta…
Exciting to see Mike Hill & @Breedlove22 dive into Robert Pirsig's metaphysics while linking it to other contemporary thinkers. Great visual illustrations, too. youtube.com/watch?v=pEgpNG…
"You'd think they're looking for their 20x. No they're not. They want so much more. And it's worth believing the lie — just in case this is the time, this is the moment you got one of those [Amazon type unicorns]."
👇This clip imo explains why so many billions are invested in scamcoins: investors are greedily eager to replicate Bitcoin's 2010-2017 returns, and tricksters make them confident that their token will do it.twitter.com/TuurDemeester/…Z

Of course this is just me speculating—it'd be easy for Vitalik to shrug and say the poll was just for fun. However I believe he's more of a calculating strategist than given credit for.
Strategic move by VB. Poll shows which "ETH killers" are currently most favored by his followers, info that can be used to mine policy & buzzword ideas from. Note how the top 2 responses, TRON & ADA (Cardano), both have a charismatic leader & cult-like followings.
Great analogy in this thread: "Bitcoin is built differently. It's built to withstand the hostile environment called the public-facing internet." twitter.com/notgrubles/sta…
Governments and cities are profit-incentivized organizations, meaning that Bitcoin should prove irresistible for most of them, too. twitter.com/BitcoinMagazin…

2/ The loss of Sloane's masterpiece was a national tragedy in the UK, illustrated by the fact that the BofA today still openly lambasts its replacement, i.a. quoting Montagu Norman: "a hotch-potch, a pasticcio, a patch-work of symbolical odds-and-ends." bankofengland.co.uk/museum/online-….
1/ Soane’s Bank of England, completed in 1833, was a marvel of neo-classical architecture. Art historian N. Pevsner called it "the greatest architectural crime ... of the 20th century" when it was demolished in 1925-'39. In that same period, the UK abandoned the gold standard.
If they read "blockchain" in your project's name, bitcoiners will be on alert. Quick note:
One of the most rewarding things about having a reputation for trustworthiness in the Bitcoin space, is the pleasure that goes with introducing good people to other good people.
I agree with @Fidelity, of course, but still astonishing to read this on Bitcoin adoption game theory in such a mainstream financial report:

Of course! ... but maybe...
Interesting variant of the Nirvana fallacy: "We're all gonna die" twitter.com/nic__carter/st…
Agreed. Barring more damaging variants with higher R0 (unlikely but possible), this seems to be the beginning of the end of the pandemic. ✌️ twitter.com/adam3us/status…
One week after the White Paper publication, @halfin was the first to give the Bitcoin project positive feedback. The two things he specifically liked were: - proof-of-work based security - predictable issuance rate (digital gold) mail-archive.com/[email protected]
