PSA: please don’t give your local supermarket guy shit if the bitcoin ATM machine is slow/unresponsive

As a corner store clerk, please understand that we don’t own the bitcoin ATM machines, and we’re simply getting paid to let the companies rent out our spot. There is contact info on these machines for a reason. If you are ever in doubt about your transaction, please use the info that is available to you, your corner store guy can’t help you because he has nothing to do with it, and if you’re ever skeptical, don’t put $ 1000 in one shot into the machine. Where i am (Canada) the government can’t help you if anything goes wrong with your bitcoin account. I’ve had people yell at me, threaten me and kick the ATM machine before. I imagine most of this aggression comes from people who are working with dirty money, but I figure I put this message out there.

Thank you

Bitcoin – The Currency of the Internet

A gentle request for /r/bitcoin members: please upvote more liberally whatever you like or want to make visible on Reddit. It’s good for Bitcoin.

Reddit is a hugely important platform for helping pushing BTC into the mainstream and it all depends to you, the /r/bitcoin members and hodlers.

One upvote is not much, but nobody knows better than us how small notches can add up to huge results. Make a habit of regularly sifting through posts and upvote the relevant, constructive ones. A large scale bitcoin adoption depends of many factors, but one of them could be you habitual daily click on the posts you like. Yes, you are a hodler and technically cannot do much for the market to grow besides hodling – except this: help keeping Bitcoin on the front page of the front page of the internet.

Also, as a side note, the highly upvoted memes pouring at each crypto market downtick are a cancer for the large scale adoption. If you believe in the future of Bitcoin, focus on positives.

Thank you, and happy hodling!

Bitcoin – The Currency of the Internet

Please help us keep the Bitcoin (Arch Wiki) page clean from Bcash trolls

They keep trying to add bcash content to confuse people and I have to revert those edits:

https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php?title=Bitcoin&type=revision&diff=545517&oldid=545452

Please help me fight the spam.

There were flamewars on the Discussion page in the past (check the history).

The person whose comment I reverted just added this comment: https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Talk:Bitcoin#Links_to_software_packages

I cannot do this alone, so I need the help from all of you.

About me, I'm a Arch Linux and bitcoin user and I love them both, I don't like seeing the bitcoin page get hijacked by these people. So please help.

Dear Bitcoin App developers and hardware wallet manufactures “Please use warrant canaries” It won’t prevent governments from installing back doors in our devices but at least will know when it happens. And it will happen at some point. This is not Fud its reality.

I spent a year making a thoughtful Bitcoin explainer without all the rookie mistakes (script was edited by many experts & reddit users). Please share with those who need to be enlightened. (Now part of James Lopp’s edu guide)

Bitcoin – The Currency of the Internet

Guys come on. It took me two minutes. Let’s get this ETF approved. There are nearly 1 Million If us and yet there are a mere 90 comments. If you care about bitcoin’s development please leave a comment. Simple how-to guide in this post

Guys, this is a very important step for bitcoin/cryptocurrency. We all want growth, are you willing to spend two minutes of your time to help do something big? If not for the tech at least do it so your holdings go up in value :-p

For those of you who don’t want to read to figure it out, follow these steps:

1) Send an email to: rule-comments@sec.gov

2) Paste this into the subject line: Release No. 34-83520; File No. SR-CboeBZX-2018-040

3) Send a basic or wordy email about why you think bitcoin/cryptocurrency/Blockchain tech is good for the world. At the very least say, “Please approve this ETF because i believe bitcoin is an important creation and needs to have the chance to grow” or something like that, please don’t quote that verbatim.

Here is a really great comment to model yours off of if you want more things to say:

https://www.sec.gov/comments/sr-cboebzx-2018-040/cboebzx2018040-168298.htm

And finally here is the link to see others comments/how to submit on the official site: https://www.sec.gov/comments/sr-cboebzx-2018-040/cboebzx2018040.htm

From madbanker1, “Seeing as the SEC is mostly concerned about protecting investors, one angle to include in comments is the fact the lack of an ETF does not prevent people from investing in bitcoin, and that without an ETF, retail investors are currently required to take great risk when investing in bitcoin :)”

Similarly, if you want to go the extra mile, read this comment and listen to him.

PSA: New merchants please avoid bitpay, they don’t support bitcoin address’s which results in fewer BTC payments/clients. Alternatives: btcpay, coingate, globee (with btc + lightning support)

Its all, have a nice day🤗
