#Bitcoin is doing America’s job for it by attacking China. 👍👍👍

The only way to attack #Bitcoin is to out-hash it and that is now a virtual impossibility. All central banks, banks, regulators; surrender now before it gets really ugly. #YouHaveBeenWarned 😀👍

I’ll be speaking at Block Blockchain “Satoshi Is Black” Sept 10. Tix avail.

People who are serious about protecting their privacy use long keys, and people who are serious about violating privacy try to pass laws restricting the length of those keys.

Prediction: Bitmain will burn some amount of their BCH instead of selling it as a way to promote BCH scarcity, avoid the low liquidity and as a gamble to pump the price.

Eventually the truth that Bitcoin/Ethereum blockchains don't scale becomes so obvious that you can't help but admit it.

Also, the actual threshold is a bit under 30%

[VIDEO] starting at 13:15 - - listen to young generation Puerto Rican’s talk about why new crypto wave means less are leaving the island and many are moving back. @brockpierce @RestartWeek @scottwalker99

Looking forward to #Brexit fail. Clan Maxwell is readying our armies to march South. For an historical primer, check out “Outlaw King” trailer.

I talked with a young entrepreneur in Puerto Rico about the new crypto wave (starts at 13:15 - ) One interesting point; many young people who might ordinarily leave PR are staying, and many are moving back. This is a definite positive.

Even if I needed to contact Temasek, I guess I would have used Wechat or something. Oversea phone call’s quality is very bad. I don’t have the convenience to comment most of the news related with Bitmain, but they are mostly as fake as this.

As the (unofficial) leader of Scotland’s Clan Maxwell, I side with the North. #Brexit crash-out will cripple London and Northerners will then march on Westminster and Buckingham Palace and finally crush these bastards. The North remembers. Our time is now.

Hash rate is price-insensitive. There is no relationship between cost and price, or even price and value in the case of #Bitcoin. Miners’ actions are locked in the protocol’s crypto (read: hidden) plan to dominate global computational capacity for reasons not yet entirely clear.

Hash rate never stopped skyrocketing. Price always hits new ATH. Price is a lagging indicator.

The BCH community should NOT compromise with Craig Wright to "avoid a split" and should embrace it as an opportunity to conclusively ostracize and reject him. Bitcoin Craig (BCC) can go take the ticker symbol from the now-defunct cryptocurrency to which it is a fitting successor.

Too many people think they have a vote in your decisions. In a truly free market you don't get to tell people what to do.

To me "market capitulation" is not about fear, but rather about disgust and indifference. Fearful investors still have hope, capitulated investors don't.

Paul Sztorc @Truthcoin obviously has not read @saifedean ‘The Bitcoin Standard’ #Bitcoin is the hardest form of money ever. This is what the book is about and yet Paul and other concern trolls seem more interested in perpetual English pedo scandals and miss the point. 😕

- ability to asymmetrically assess people

Tyler Whirty @twhirty_ misses an opportunity to let us know that @saifedean has convincingly made the case that #Bitcoin is the hardest form of money ever. This is what the book is about and yet Whirty gets bogged down in pedo scandals and misses the point. #WorthlessReview

State education is detrimental, not beneficial to society. It produces people who attribute good to the state for no reason.

1/ In "Good to Great", author Jim Collins uses the metaphor of the flywheel: disciplined people and a consistent vision eventually lead to extraordinary growth. Contrasts it with charismatic 'rockstar' CEOs who jerk the company around, causing it to lose momentum.

Oppression comes from concentrated power. The solution isn't to change the people in power, the solution is to decentralize the power.

Old laws are rarely able to resist new technologies.

Allowing strangers' words to affect you negatively is a hole in your Twitter game. Much as in hodling, not paying attention is a virtue.
