New Issue: What are Stablecoins?

For many of you, this may seem like an elementary concept, but there are important key concepts behind their creation that should influence how and why you use them.

Today, we announced that ShapeShift is decentralizing.

Unorthodox, but it is the only way to maintain fidelity to the most important principles of crypto; specifically, self-sovereignty over money.

Without that principle upheld, we’re all just LARP’ing.

How to do it (thread) 👇

All centralized organizations are a chokepoint for hostile jurisdictions to exercise force on the less powerful.

In other words, if anything you're doing could disrupt an entrenched player with power, using services from centralized organizations is always a security risk.

Stick to crapping on plutocracy and crony capitalism when it comes to billionaires. Everyone in the normie world thinks going to space is cool.

Look, it's doubtlessly a decadent pleasure for billionaires to be racing to space, but honestly it's a more moral compulsion for a space race (ego) than the last space race (a stepping stone to mutually assured global destruction).

Hating on space exploration isn't a good look.

Nothing short of the stone age returning will ever stop Bitcoin. Every attack makes it stronger. Religion was taken from State, information was taken from State, now money is taken from State. Humanity is on course to peaceful anarchism long term.

The handwriting is suspect & I doubt the authenticity of the note. It reads more like someone trying to imitate John’s style of tweeting. And if this note was found in his pocket where are the markings of the note being folded into his pocket?

It's always super cool when wantrepreneur dilettantes in the startup scene ridicule those who actually take risks for their failures

And by super cool, I mean hurtful and toxic.

Why do we tolerate these people in our circles?
