One Bitcoin Dev was detained for 12 hours at a US airport after telling them he was there to attend a Bitcoin conference (Scaling Bitcoin last year.) After a shift change, nobody knew why he was being detained and then he was released.

Bitcoin – The Currency of the Internet

Bitcoin is distinct from all the centrally controlled securities (ETH, ICO’s and many other alts). Satoshi’s wisdom was not only in its creation but also in stepping back. Lack of central authority is why Bitcoin endures. Nobody to pay for marketing campaigns is a feature.

Bitcoin – The Currency of the Internet

Just a reminder that Genesis Mining is a total scam. Nobody should ‘invest’ with them.

There isn't a single 'investor' who has ever received a break-even ROI. This is a fact. Everybody who has ever given them money has ended up with less than they gave.

If the price shoots up, sure it feels like you're making gains. But the reality is that if you gave any crypto to Genesis, you will only ever get a fraction of your original crypto back. Not even 100% of the initial investment, let alone profit.

It is a clear ponzi. This company's operational costs are obviously in fiat. They rent IT spaces in various countries, buy servers and graphics cards and netwoking equipment, pay salaries, advertising, travel, etc.

So they're taking all your money in bitcoin and then what? Converting it to Fiat so that they can mine bitcoin again?

Marco Streng is a liar and a fraud.

Bitcoin – The Currency of the Internet

Nobody blames a currency when criminals launder money, but if they used BitCoin suddenly it’s a BitCoin problem

The same happened to the internet. If someone was murdered by someone they met on the internet, media blames the internet.

20 years later people are over it because they all use the internet now.

Will we ever get impartial news? When are people going to stop forgetting society always does this?

Advice from a nobody: Now that the price is going down, stop looking at your portfolio and spend that time building tools and services for the ecosystem, like we all did in 2014. Sharpen your skills, help the community, and maybe earn bitcoins.

Bitcoin – The Currency of the Internet

Bitcoin matters not because it’s fast, cheap, or easy; but only because nobody controls it. It grew spontaneously in the wilds of the internet without a central planner. After it, no alt could ever recreate this, as there’s no spontaneous market demand for a less secure Bitcoin.
