I want a smart currency based phone where the caller has to send me BTC to get me to answer, if I talk to them more than 120 seconds the phone automatically sends them back the BTC. That would effectively end spam calls..

Bitcoin – The Currency of the Internet

Bitcoin is stable. It has survived a civil war, spam attacks, 1 exchange by volume shutting down (Gox), and will survive a nuclear apocalypse. The price in fiat/BTC fluctuates because it’s the volatility of the world entering the stability of Bitcoin in ebbs and flows.

Bitcoin – The Currency of the Internet

I’ve sent a transaction with 0.00001 btc fee (~0.03 USD), it confirmed slowly but it confirmed. Bitcoin still works. Don’t give in to the FUD, let’s fight mining centralization and spam attacks on the mempool!

We need SegWit, we need Lightning, we need UASF! Miners don't care about the Bitcoin's vision, they will only try to maximize profits (for example by demanding bigger blocks). We shouldn't listen to them, neither should we pay attention to their representatives. We decide the future of Bitcoin and they decide whether they want to take part in mining our coins.

Bitcoin's core value is decentralization. I hope everyone appreciates what this means for us and for the future of value exchange.

r/btc is encouraging their users to spam reddit admins en masse in order to have our current mods removed and/or ban the sub entirely. Link and highlights inside!

See: https://np.reddit.com/r/btc/comments/5d3s26/if_enough_of_us_report_to_the_reddit_admins_and/

For the extra lazy, here's what you're missing out on by not clicking through (no loss to you:)

If enough of us report to the Reddit admins and cite John Blocke's post on r/bitcoin's censorship, CSS abuse and comment manipulation, maybe they will help

Surely this can't be allowed to continue.

Highlights include…

  • Idiot's guide to spamming reddit admins:

Click this and send admins a message: https://www.reddit.com/message/compose?to=%2Fr%2Freddit.com&subject=Complaint

  • The 'scorched earth' suggestion:

Deleting /r/bitcoin from reddit.com would be the most viable way to heal to community and stop the censorship (again things that you don't seem to have any problem with)

  • Spam count (as of this post): 7

Now, I'm certainly not suggesting we fight spam with spam (by sending messages of support,) but it may not be the worst idea in the world to get ready to field some hostile takeovers of the sub.

The level of politicking going on right now is, quite frankly, fucking insane.

Let's shoot for a prompt activation following Friday, friends. To the moon!
