F.A. Hayek in 1984: “I don’t believe we shall ever have a good money again before we take the thing out of the hands of government, that is, we can’t take it violently out of the hands of government, all we can do is by some sly roundabout way introduce something that they can’t stop.”

Bitcoin – The Currency of the Internet

Let’s take a minute to remember the Pineapple fund

https://pineapplefund.org

Tons of great causes were donated bitcoin, and it helped improve the image of bitcoin during the last bull run, and straight up made it more fun. Let's hope more long time bitcoin hodlers will follow that example. There's no doubt that it increases joy and morale in Bitcoin. Go out and micro-donate some mbtc to newcomers if you can. We're very insulated here in r/bitcoin and in reality too many people still think btc is only used on the dark web. We still have to change the perception. Happy hodling (and sharing)

Bitcoin – The Currency of the Internet

“I would take my salary in Bitcoin if merchants accepted it.” The way Bitcoin wins is if WE show demand for the merchants who ALREADY DO accept it. 10,000’s of merchants accept Bitcoin, but we can’t find them online. Screw another website tracking price. We need a website that facilitates trade.

If you think that this ecosystem is too big for you to make an impact, you're sadly mistaken. The guy who started Coinmarketcap.com was a college kid living in Brooklyn.

It's up to us to build the future. It's up to us to drive demand. Many merchants offer a discount for paying in Bitcoin – Fuck it, I'd gladly pay 5% more if you let me pay in Bitcoin.

Create a website. Make a little database search. Email merchants asking if they want to be listed.

Get popular, make a millino bucks no problem.

Microsoft was started in a garage. Coinmarketcap was started by a guy who bought a website domain sitting in his bedroom.
