There are no rules for spending Bitcoin. You simply do what is right in your situation:
Want to make payments otherwise subject to censorship (drugs, sanctions, donations...)? Spend now.
Want to protect value from confiscation or speculate on future demand? Spend later.
If you only knew the magnificence of the 3, 6 and 9, then you would have a key to the universe.

If you approach Bitcoin like you would a technology startup, you are bound to misunderstand it. Money has no equivalence. You can’t substitute thinking about money by thinking about something else.
I’m not in Paris and it might be really bad there (as can see from some comments below), better ask friends in Paris about the actual situation.
developing a theory that earth doesn’t actually exist
Bitcoin reimagines money & private property which is the biggest building block society is built on, and therefore has massive financial & political implications.

This @jack thread is peak Silicon Valley: prioritising mindfulness spiritual blather over any concern for human rights.
This is why there's so much wellness bullshit in tech now: it helps turn your mind off from asking difficult ethical questions.
Many believe the stock market represents the collective confidence + valuation of equities.
I tend to believe that the stock market exists purely to move money from a lot of people to a few ppl.
Right when one group thinks they figured it out is when they will lose the most $.
The #ParisProtest is a great example of the next generation that will discover #bitcoin.
Bitcoin is for the underserved and the underrepresented of the world.
It's a global check on corrupt government, because they have to earn your money.
1/3 Thoughts on Decentralized Governance. Blockchain projects and protocols that are decentralizing their governance too early will come to regret it, or they will need to deal with its shortcomings.
2/3 Decentralizing governance isn’t a ticket to paradise, nor a shot in the arm to insulate you from oversights. It is for the more mature and stable stages of operations because growth via decentralization is messy. You need to build the rails before putting the train on it.

Diego 'Not giving away Crypto' Gutierrez-Zaldivar@dieguito
@el33th4xor Depends on the timeframe you want to store value. Fiat money is designed to be stable in the short term sacrificing long term value preservation (USD lost 90%+ value in the last century). Scarce money (Gold & Bitcoin) is designed to preserve long term value sacrificing stability.
Makes perfect sense… in an alternate universe where jobs are hereditary and the basis of social class, engineers are undervalued and face slurs, and the whole conversation is about status rather than mitigating the harmful effects of Silicon Valley's technotopian fantasies. twitter.com/patio11/status…
What are the best non-gaming streams?
One of the reasons why gaming is fun to watch is learning strategy.
Similarly, programming, trading, handy man, etc. style streams (all areas where tools + apprenticeship is in use) feel like they could be a compelling niche.
michael lewis in ‘99: “a stunning ignorance of mass tastes was a common problem in high tech - overestimations of the average person’s willingness to learn how to use some new machine and underestimations of the cost.”
what’s old is new again
@mdudas @TheBlock__ I do believe @TheBlock__ are the only credible #bitcoin/crypto publication to do this: investigative journalism and willingness to expose inconvenient to individual company or project info.
Interesting how it’s Canada, and not US, facing the wrath of Khan over #mengwanzhou. It’s b/c Canada made the arrest and nothing, not even a US prosecution of her later, will trump the fact that Canada made it possible in the eyes of China. Brace yourself, Canadians.

@_Kevin_Pham @Ragnarly maybe he means that Coinbase will convince the Fed that they're a bank holding company so they can qualify for a future bailout?

Excellent example of good sales & marketing right here. Remember... nothing kills a sale faster than CONFUSION! There is absolutely NO confusion as to what this business is all about and who should come here...
#Bitcoin is ded, we ain't never coming back from this.
Synonyms for 'no' for those confused by subtle social signals:
No way: A strongly negative no
No: A negative no
Nope: A neutral no
Nah: A reluctant/slightly positive no
No thank you: A positive no
No thanks: A slightly sarcastic positive no
About to try buying coffee at Starbucks with Bitcoin again. Crossing my fingers... 🤞
Finalist 2. Snarsma built a plasma-based scalability solution on Barry Whitehat's snark-based compression tech. Deposit, transfer, and withdraw state transition functions all implemented in snark circuits and verifiable by plasma operator. Cool!
