“Coming Soon: The Biggest Crypto On-Ramps Ever”
tl;dr in thread below
1/ We tend to think that the biggest potential catalysts will have three primary ingredients:
- A link between crypto and where capital resides today
- A familiar form factor to minimize adoption friction
- A highly engaged international user-base
2/ we think we’re about to witness the emergence of the biggest crypto on-ramps that have ever been established.
3/ Specifically, the two trends we’re watching are fiat coins (“crypto USD”) and social media networks (e.g. Facebook’s secretive project). In short, fiat coins bring the capital link and familiar form factor while social media giants bring their vast, highly engaged user-bases.
4/ Yes, fiat coins are the crypto equivalent of “putting magazines on the internet”, still they’re useful in that they provide a familiar, unintimidating form factor. They’re a gateway drug to going full crypto
5/ & while providing a direct link to capital and a familiar form factor is helpful, users need a reason to adopt and jump over to the crypto world
6/ A scaled userbase would go a long way to accomplishing this — once the majority of your network is onboard, there’s greater utility in the ability to quickly zap money around
7/ Social media behemoths are catalyzing this shift today: Facebook, Telegram, Kakao, and Signal (to name a few) are all introducing their user-bases to crypto. This sets the stage for massive growth in the number of crypto users.
8/ Still, even if we assume a unique user-base of 1.5 billion across projects currently in progress (or rumored to be), it would only take a 7% adoption rate to more than double the number of crypto users over the next couple years.
9/ Ultimately, I’d expect established global networks like Bitcoin and Ethereum to benefit substantially from these new onramps.
10/ Bitcoin & the crypto ecosystem have a strong value prop that will continue to attract users over time regardless of whether large tech or financial companies catalyze adoption but it’s hard to imagine anything that will be as additive to ST adoption as these projects
11/ In the end, the outlook is bright: Greater adoption means more financial freedom for all users — something we can all get onboard with.
Could Amazon rival Rakuten's decision to launch a bitcoin exchange trigger the next bitcoin bull run? We won't have to wait long to see: on.forbes.com/6012EeHji by @BillyBambrough via @Forbes
Almost each time someone is trying to produce a very large block on the $BSV chain, there’s a reorg. Just an hour ago our @Blockchair engine has witnessed a 3-block reorg (I think that's a record)! 🙈 Blocks #578640–578642 got orphaned by a longer chain because they were too big.
With over 500,000 transactions in the mempool, the SV node (we run the latest version on top grade hardware with 256 GB RAM) becomes quite unresponsive (even simple `./bitcoin-cli help` query takes time to execute).
Someone’s asked what was the point of this tweet — the point was to warn people that they shouldn’t accept important payments on the $BSV network unless there are 5-6 confirmations. And that 2 GB blocks aren’t really a good idea without some groundwork first.
"In the medium to long term, I want to see a really *bad* proposal be voted down." -- @JacobArluck on demonstrating the network's resiliency.

FWIW, if CSW *did* actually sign a message or move coins with a Satoshi key, I would be much more inclined to believe he somehow stole, bought, or extorted the key, than it proving anything about the Satoshi identity.
Real q: what is the point of crypto debit cards?

Balaji S. Srinivasan@balajis
One of the most important long term effects of crypto will be the use of digital currency as a scarce system resource similar to RAM, CPU, hard drive space, and the like.
With digital currency a program can now dynamically make build vs buy tradeoffs. It can decide whether to run a given computation locally or to pay another computer to execute it.
With #defi and other emerging crypto primitives, programs will gain the capability to set up arbitrarily sophisticated financial infrastructure on the fly, just like they can now orchestrate complex remote deployments.

PSA—if you are based in the South Bay and *you* request a meeting with someone based in San Francisco, don’t offer a mid-day meeting time in Palo Alto.
Imagine if you said you were going to be in New York and someone suggested that you meet but come out to Greenwich.
It may be easier to do a day trip to LA than to do SF-South Bay-SF trip.

@CryptoScamHub @business @olgakharif Hey @olgakharif can we please get this resolved?
Fans of big government and high taxes don’t donate extra to the IRS. Almost no one does.
Because in our hearts everyone knows that the government uses resources poorly.
Those not willing to donate extra, ask men with guns to steal wages from you.

US making fentanyl a WMD ... bloody brilliant. Forces banks, exchanges, casinos, realtors and everyone to step up their game or face prosecution.
Slowly but surely, Bitcoin is becoming more efficient, more scalable, more private, and more robust of a network.

Social attacks trying to deplatform on gunowners are an attack on liberty. Here are some historical takes on guns: twitter.com/sunny_hundal/s…
"A free people ought not only to be armed, but disciplined" George Washington
"What country can preserve its liberties if their rulers are not warned from time to time that their people preserve the spirit of resistance. Let them take arms."
- Thomas Jefferson
“They that can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety."
- Benjamin Franklin
"To disarm the people...[i]s the most effectual way to enslave them."
- George Mason
"Before a standing army can rule, people must be disarmed, as they are in every country in Europe. The supreme power in America cannot enforce unjust laws by sword; because the whole body of people are armed, and constitute a force superior to regular troops."
- Noah Webster
"To preserve liberty, it is essential that the whole body of the people always possess arms, and be taught alike, especially when young, how to use them."
- Richard Henry Lee
“The great object is that every man be armed. Everyone who is able might have a gun."
- Patrick Henry
The balance ofpower is the scale of peace. The same balance would be preserved were all the world destitute of arms, for all would be alike; but since some will not, others dare not lay them aside.”
- Thomas Paine,
"The Constitution shall never be construed to prevent the people of the United States who are peaceable citizens from keeping their own arms."
- Samuel Adams
Whenever Governments mean to invade the rights and liberties of the people, they always attempt to destroy the militia, in order to raise an army upon their ruins."
- Rep. Elbridge Gerry of Massachusetts
If the persons intrusted with supreme power become usurpers [states] can take no regular measures for defense. The citizens must rush tumultuously to arms, without concert, without system, without resource; except in their courage and despair."
- Alexander Hamilton
