When Bitcoin crashes 50% there are no bailouts and mainstream finance is quick to label it a Ponzi scheme.

When Traditional markets crash 50% mainstream finance begs the FED to print trillions of dollars and bail them out.

One of these sounds more like a Ponzi than the other

There's some interesting recent back-and-forth on the bitcoin-dev mailing list about proof of stake. I'll add some links here as I come across them.

First, I love how simple Voskuil makes his anti-proof-of-stake-argument, albeit it's only one angle, it's kind of interesting:

This blog about attacks on proof of stake reminds people of the anti-DOS feature of PoW which is easy to forget:

#bitcoin #proof-of-work #proof-of-stake

You know what would really make this timeline spicy? If Peter Schiff does a 180 and comes out in support of against Musk's idiotic comments. 🤣

"Crypto" diversification must be the best litmus test ever for stupidity (or dishonesty). How dumb must you be (or your targets) not to see that shitcoins dump when famous people criticize Bitcoin? Or that "altseasons" are always perfectly in sync with Bitcoin's halving cycles?

I'm just lol'ing from the sidelines.

I have become numb to 's price. Anyone else feel the same way?

Looked at Twitter seriously for the first time in over a month and was quickly reminded how all that site seems to do any more is make me mad. So I decided on a late New Year's resolution.

There comes a time in every man's life where he finds himself wantig to manage his own keys and run his own node.

When do you guys thing the word "patriot" is going to get cancelled for upholding the patriarchy?

No lockdown measures since November. 🤷‍♂️
