 GOOD MORNING, NOSTR ONLY 🫡 
 Good morning, Microstrategy Orange is the fiat version of NOSTR. 

We don’t need more third parties, we need less.

Curious how NOSTR can implement some sort of Orange check and if that’s even necessary. Hope you discuss this on RHR 👍🏻 
 Good morning!

Let programmatic monetary policy ring 🎉 

Cheers to another epoch 🥂

I wish for many blessings to you and your families 🙏🏼

 Good morning!

The halfing is nigh 👀

 Looks like an infinity symbol, take advantage of this and draw a line underneath it and write 21 million below the line.

The halving is coming!

 How much longer will the ‘FED Put’ keep working? 
 Depends, do you consider number-go-up as “working”?

What if number goes up too fast?

 A protocol is never done being developed and worked on. It's a living and breathing thing. Callin... 
 I think there is a difference between ongoing maintenance of a protocol and anti-ossification. 

This seems like a straw man towards ossificationoors.

I’m not sure what bucket I fit into, but I understand the protocol needs ongoing maintenance. Also, I’m okay with taking our time with big “improvements”. 

I wouldn’t call myself an ossifioor, but I understand that we don’t want to break the thing too. 

If adoption is at less than 1%, and devs make up less than 1% of that crowd, we are missing a wide swath of brain power that can potentially come up with some novel way to help or hurt bitcoin with current code.

Imo, moving slow and not breaking things is Bitcoin’s greatest feature. Especially now. 
 Good morning, 

I appreciate you speaking out about Saylor.

Onward 🫡 
 Good morning, 

Working hard is a virtue. 
 Good morning,

Relationships are a big part of life. 

Cultivate them and share your experiences with ones closest to you.

 No cash app options on robosats right now :(

Anybody want to sell me some nonkyc corn??? 
 Is Strike still an option? That’s what I have used in the past. 
 If bitcoin measures the deflationary aspects of innovation over time. 

That means you can give someone bitcoin for something they want and they are then forced to hold it until they can afford to purchase.

Not sure the ramifications of this, but seems important for incentive structures.

 GM!

Bitcoiners will bring back meaning to these buildings. 

Permanent structures need a permanent bedrock infrastructure.

 Pretty cool to see a @Mullvad VPN ad in the D.C. airport!

If you haven’t used their service, it’s fantastic!

Some food for thought 💭

 Why are you still an active #nostr user?  
 Be the change you want to see in the world. 

Rules, not rulers.

Curating your own life 🤙🏼 
 The overarching point is that the govt can arbitrarily dilute your savings without any recourse. That is literally god mode in any video game, just being able to literally print money. Why do we pay so much in taxes if they can just print the difference?

Bitcoin fixes all of this. 
 GM!

The reason you know financial advisors don’t put in the proof-of-work is because they rarely come up with some technical limitation of bitcoin.

Their go-to line is that it’s speculative and/or volatile. Pure cope. 
 Good morning!

 Good morning 😌 
 The expansion of credit, cannot form a substitute for capital. #BTC 
 There is a finite amount of credit that can be pulled forward before it begins to feed on itself. 

That’s what we are running into today with exponential increases in global credit.

There is a pretty strong illusion in fiat world that credit is capital. My hunch is that illusion crashes in the next 10-20 years. 
 Good morning,

Common sense is a straight line and society veers away from it over time.

But it always comes back.

I read this quote from Thomas Paine a few times yesterday. Hits different every time.

 GOOD MORNING 🌅

Come to the MPLS meetup sometime! 
 Good morning! 

Bitcoin meetups are the way 🤙🏼

Always feel more energized after ⚡️ 
 Good morning!

You can’t escape worship.

Inside every non-believer is a god sized hole that gets filled with something.

I clipped this from @walker and @DzambhalaHODL's conversation. 

Enjoy!

 Good morning!

The race against CBDC’s continues. 

Keep fighting the good fight 🤙🏼

 Shoot, missed my GM note…

Good afternoon, 

Sats are on discount ⚡️ 
 I'm over here zapping like a mad man.  
 Shoutout to you 
 GOOD MORNING NOSTR, LOVE A GOOD PROTOCOL WAR, THIS IS HOW OPEN SYSTEMS IMPROVE, LETS FUCKING GO 🫡 
 GM, I’M JUST HAPPY TO BE HERE 🙏🏼 
 GM, YOUR FRIENDS AND FAMILY NEED BITCOIN. 

HELP THEM! 
 What if every halving, we cut the amount of sats considered 1 bitcoin in half too? 

Or would bumping it down an order of magnitude be better?

This would eliminate unit bias and make bitcoin more “affordable” in people’s eyes. 
 Locking in my halving guess at $93,780…bullish or bearish? 🚀🚀 
 Bear, happy birthday! 
 GM! 

Bitcoin is a power law! 
 Bitcoiners are incentivized to help nocoiners secure their own Bitcoin in cold storage for no charge.

Less Bitcoin on exchanges means number go up. 

Help your friends and family secure the hardest asset of all time. 
 Good morning

You don’t own Bitcoin, Bitcoin owns you. 
 GOOD MORNING NOSTR, STAY HUMBLE AND STACK SATS 🫡 
 GOOD MORNING, YOU DONT OWN BITCOIN, BITCOIN OWNS YOU!

 GOOD MORNING! STAY HUMBLE AND STACK THOSE CHEAP SATS WITH MONOPOLY MONEY! 💰 
 If it takes years to grok bitcoin for the autists that obsess over it, how long will it take normies to grok it?

Twice as long? Order of magnitude longer? Does it even matter? 
 Good morning, 

Bitcoin is fun. 

And fiat is not fun. 
 Good Morning 🌅 
 GOOD MORNING NOSTR, ZAPS ARE LITTLE BITS OF BITCOIN. YOU CAN SAVE THEM OR USE THEM TO BUY ANYTHIN... 
 GOOD MORNING - If you are your bitcoin, sats are the power house - MITOCHONDRIA 
 It’s hard to believe it, without seeing it.

And Bitcoin is no exception.

It will empower the intellectually hungry, and devalue the intellectually blind. 
 Is there a reason we don’t have push notifications with Primal?

Would love to see those notifications vs other social apps. 

To my understanding, you can only get notifications within the app. 
 Just got a special delivery 👀

Ordered some #Bitcoin art from the one and only @Bitcoin Apex 

Will post a follow up when I have them in some frames.

 Bitcoin will humble everyone. 

You don’t have a choice.

 Welcome @Quincerooni 🫡⚡️ 
 Why am I getting this error when I try and zap someone? 

I have sats in my account and so do they. They recently changed their username so that might have something to do with it?

Tony, Sam, Connor, you there? 
 There are going to be many “#Bitcoin detractors” that really just love the attention. 

Be aware and constructive to those who seek knowledge. 

Ignore the rest.
