1) Did you know: Between 2010 and 2013 former Mike Hearn, then a tech lead at Google’s offices in Zurich, Switzerland, designed a security system that was later tapped by the NSA and GCHQ. The Snowden leaks revealed the existence of the surveillance taps in late 2013.

Bitcoin – The Currency of the Internet

I’m not bullish on Bitcoin. I’m bearish on USD. I’m not buying Bitcoin. I’m selling USD. Bitcoin is how I plan to protect myself from inflation, economic uncertainty, and corruption within the financial system.

Bitcoin – The Currency of the Internet

Bitcoins immune system is awesome.

Risk of Bitmain 51% attacking the network -> Antbleed, Dragonmint and others pushed it almost out of business.

Bitpay became a bad player -> BTCServer, opennode and others are making them obsolete.

Attacks of fear doubt and confusion -> people learn early "don't trust verify".

Hackers targeting bitcoiners computers -> Hardware wallets were born

Mybitcoin.com scammed users with half of their bitcoins -> motivation for the creation of the Electrum Wallet.

MTGoxxed and other exchanges hacked or scam -> People hodling to their own keys.

Coinbase supported many attacks on bitcoin -> decentralized exchanges on the rise.

Blockchain.info, bitcoin.com name squatting scam -> part of the user education program.

Scaling debate takeover attempts -> Segwit #UASF, Lightning network.

ElextrumX Server dev added an altcoin as default -> Electrum Personal Server and Electrs came shortly after.

Centralized shitcoins discourse 'more advanced', flippening' -> First large scale smart contract deployed is the Lightning network, others are sidechains and Simplicity.

Internet censorship getting stronger -> Blockstream Satellite, gotenna, locha mesh.

Bad actors, please keep those attacks coming.

Fellow bitcoiners, cheers!
