2/ Millennial's Guide to Bitcoin
*Get in their head. Speak in their language. Boomers borrowed against your future, too much student debt, can't buy land, this is your best chance to be wealthy, who cares about a shiny rock, buy bitcoin.
3/ Goldbug's Guide to Bitcoin
*Should probably be written by a goldbug, former bitcoin skeptic, recently converted. Should be "gold AND bitcoin."
1/ Bitcoin is the Antivirus that prevents the spread of our destructive financial hegemony. Can Bitcoin survive long enough to reach its full potential? Let’s explore Bitcoin’s survivability through the lens of fungi.
2/ Abstract: "The precursors of money, along with language, enabled early modern humans to solve problems of cooperation that other animals cannot – including problems of reciprocal altruism, kin altruism, and the mitigation of aggression...."
3/ England forced their 17th century American colonies to use fiat (coinage in short supply). Then Colonists discovered a better money - Native American Wampum (durable clam shells) and stopped using fiat. Finally, England issued coinage, and colonists dumped their Wampum bags.
2/ TL;DR: Bitcoin culture wars are a net positive.
A necessary mechanism to market test ideas. Failed divergences minimize attack surface and refine the core message. Ultimately this lowers user acquisition cost. Failed attempts become battle scars. Makes bitcoin stronger.
3/ Bitcoiners generally agree upon the important stuff: 21m supply cap, censorship resistance, ease of verification.
However, mutually exclusive ideologies emerge, ie: “cheap payments on base layer” vs “decentralization of node operators.”
2/ In my previous article, “Bitcoin is a Decentralized Organism” we explored bitcoin through the lens of mycelium. Decentralized consensus, the network archetype, adapting to environmental stimuli, arbitrage, bitcoin's role in ecology (immune system).
3/ Our fungi story is not yet complete. Next stage in fungal life cycle is to produce mushrooms (reproduction organs). After maturation, mushrooms release tiny mushroom seeds (spores) capable of producing new life. This parallels hype cycles in bitcoin.
1/ Bitcoin is a decentralized super-organism made of individually replaceable cells that share aligned incentives. Some of Bitcoin's best traits are simply copied from the Fungi Kingdom. Let's explore this...
2/ Bitcoin appears superficially simple at first glance, however true understanding is difficult. Observers are easily seduced into making hasty assumptions. Competing narratives make it even harder (digital gold, fintech revolution, etc).
3/ “What is bitcoin?” Like Fungi, bitcoin is a super-organism adapting to environmental stimuli, it unlocks stranded resources through PoW, absorbs proven competitor's advantages, and occupies a similar ecological role: the immune system.
1/ Just condensed The Internet of Money Volume 2 by @aantonop into 45 tweets.
2/ Children born today will likely never:
1) Have a bank account 2) Have a driving license 3) Use paper money
3/ Before Bitcoin…
