eric_lombrozo In this moment in history, do you want to be remembered for helping build it? Or for engaging in petty arguments on social media?

@alansilbert Instead of screwing around on broken Reddit platform, perhaps @rogerkver could collaborate w/@YoursNetwork? Build the future!

@SatoshiLite @rogerkver Twitter often provides insufficient context to distinguish between lighthearted satire and spiteful vitriol. 😩

Girlfriend asked why I carry a gun @ home.
I said: the CIA
She laughed, I laughed, the TV laughed, I shot the TV.
Only the paranoid survive.

If SEC denies rule change for COIN ETF, Bitcoin’s utility won’t change.
If they approve, a new market w/new demand opens.
Trade accordingly.

Bitcoin is a communal concept.
Bitcoin is Cypherpunk.
Bitcoin is philosophy.
Bitcoin is freedom.
Bitcoin is money.
Bitcoin is.

@arronschaar @MrHodl @alansilbert @Excellion I never made that claim; you’re somehow inferring it.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to arronschaar

@arronschaar @MrHodl @alansilbert @Excellion No, but that’s a different issues altogether. I’m focused on single variable of fees here.

@ziggamon @Excellion @spair The economic pressure is rising and incentivizing such efforts; probably only a matter of time.

@ssoeborg @Excellion Well they can… if you aren’t paying for much security. 😬

via Twitter Web Client in reply to ssoeborg

@ssoeborg @Excellion 30% to 50% savings generally. Fees have already risen more than that just in the past month. Thus it’s a weak argument.

My @lyft driver was kind enough to offer to recharge my phone, but I had to politely decline because I didn’t have a USB condom on me. 🤓

@MrHodl @alansilbert @Excellion You should try letting go of your dogma once in a while and just envision /potential/ futures.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to MrHodl

@alansilbert @Excellion Yes, it’s unfortunately that SegWit has become a contentious block size increase b/c that’s not the primary goal.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to alansilbert

@MrHodl @alansilbert @Excellion I’m not advocating BU. I’m simply saying BU could create 8MB blocks that drop fees immediately. Simple math.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to MrHodl

@Technom4ge @Excellion Definitely - SW is a step towards long term fee relief via off-chain transactions. Won’t offer much short term relief

via Twitter Web Client in reply to Technom4ge

@alansilbert @Excellion SW is good but immediate fee relief is a weak argument. BU actually has a better argument for immediate fee relief.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to alansilbert

@Excellion This is a weak and divisive argument. Even w/SegWit, fees would be higher than they were just a few months ago. I’d focus on LN.
