Are we ready to drop the “Bitcoin is a fiat investment” narrative and get on with the revolution yet?

I may just be talking for myself here, but feel like we Bitcoiners are starting to wake up from this bizarre narrative (THEIR Narrative, and we all know who THEY are) that Bitcoin is some kind of digital asset 'investment' made in fiat to buy and sell (hopefully) in return for fiat profits.

It seems like the shortest time ago, Bitcoin was all about a peaceful silent revolution where, by simply buying what we could afford to lose and encouraging others to do the same and HODLing, we had a chance – maybe the only chance in human history – to remove the power of a select few to create money out of thin air to lord it over all of us and throw endless fake wars with it.

Then suddenly, we started 'getting rich', in fiat terms of course (our meager Bitcoin HODLings staying the same).

We got drunk on the euphoria. 'Real traders' with suits, the talking heads, the IMF, the rothschildes for god's sake – everyone in fact – raving on about the ROI of Bitcoin 'investments'. TA, buy low sell high, price predictions, lambos etc dominated our feeds and our thoughts.

We were duped.

THEY (and again, we know who THEY are) fooled us into viewing Bitcoin not as the revolutionary leaderless, censorship/gov resistant, borderless, permissionless and transparent form of exchange this world has NEVER had, but rather just another thing to buy with substanceless, permissioned fake fiat currency to 'get rich'.

In short, we all, bitcoiners and nocoiners alike, viewed the whole phenomena from the perspective THEY decided for us.

Not the perspective we were employing at the time – our perspective, our narrative. We allowed, in our own hearts and minds, OUR narrative to be replaced.

Then came the divide and conquer – the apparent 'scaling debate'. It took us by surprise. We hurried to study up on it (some more than others) and consequently chose 'our team' without ever realizing it was THEIR idea, this debate.

Their 'agreements', their fork, their version of Bitcoin ensued. We got sucked into battling with the gullible few who fell for it and who consequently (and understandably) dug in their heals to defend their erroneous decisions. We got side tracked, again, inTHEIR narrative. It bought them a lot of time and strengthened their successful narrative that made us view this phenomena as a fiat 'investment'.

Guess what, we are still standing, Bitcoin, the money badger don't care, it's still moving forward. When will we ??

Are we ready to drop THEIR narrative, THEIR perspective and get on with the revolution yet???

Our children, grand children etc are still depending on us.

Bitcoin – The Currency of the Internet

One year ago my manager said “No way in hell this investment firm will trade bitcoin”. Today my manager said that we will start soon!

I don't want to disclose any names, but I am really happy! I can finally understand something at work! A company came in to educate directors and management about digital asset trading and they agree'd to start by testing the waters on bitcoin. I know its not a big deal because there are bigger players in the game but the more the better! Its a small-mid investment firm with $ 1 billion capital. I loved how it took one year for my manager to change his mind.
