Thanks to @TBCox for introducing me to this concept. It’s something that I hadn’t realized I was looking for, and now it’s something that I attempt to provide for others. It’s rare and so damn important today’s very ugly political environment.

Bitcoin is simply a technology that, if adopted, moves society to an economic coordination point that can’t be controlled or diluted by the powers that be.

There is just so much history, so many books, so many research papers... unfortunately, I find it hard to believe that this is ignorance. Looks to me like intentional misdirection.
Wondering why your Thanksgiving groceries cost more this year? It’s because greedy corporations are charging Americans extra just to keep their stock prices high. This is outrageous. businessinsider.com/big-comp…

I like to day dream about living in #BitcoinCity 😊 But I'm also very, very cautious of hyping the project because of these concerns 👇
@nayibbukele has been praised for his work on Bitcoin in El Salvador. While this work is exciting and deserving of praise, Bukele is also on the fast path to becoming another populist authoritarian dictator. A 🧵 on how Bukele is rapidly centralizing and abusing power: 1/

Dear cryptocurrency critics, Doesn’t it feel at least a bit weird to team up with China, banks, the IMF, Putin and Warren Buffet to save the world from #Bitcoin?

...I don't envy anyone trying to decide to work with the #ElSalvador gov or not. If you don’t want to be a hardline purist (which I don’t), then this is a difficult call. I don’t think there is a right answer.

You can’t know what’s in the hearts and minds of others. Let’s not focus on Bukele. Instead let’s do a thorough analysis of the incentives, and thus likely outcomes, of the #BitcoinCity project and make judgments on involvement from there.

With #BitcoinCity it’s not a question of if we like the concept or want this to work, of course we do! It is a question of how much time, energy, and resources we put into the project, and more specifically, the organizers of the project.

There are concerns about Bukele & that’s very fair. ...Central American is known for it’s corrupt and authoritarian governments. However, I am not anywhere near well enough educated on the issue to make a judgement on Bukele’s, or any other organizers, motivations or character.

I personally plan to simply carry on working on the infrastructure, software, and education that is required to make something like a #BitcoinCity a reality.

FYI, if you're flying out of #ElSalvador you'll need a negative covid test to check-in to your flight, vaccinated or not.
