The Sat Standard
This week in bitcoin. Straight to the point. No bullshit. Every Saturday.
Thought of the week from Marty Bent:
It may be hard for people to believe, but we are witnessing the disintegration of the nation state right before our eyes. Things will be chaotic in the coming years but the grass will be much greener on the other side. The world is ridding itself of the wretched clown show known as modern day politics dominated by sociopaths. This process would be sped up if individuals realized their emotions are being manipulated by this dying class as they attempt to cling to power. Dividing people who have much more in common than it would seem at the moment. 

Thought of the week from Matt Odell:
Coinbase is now selling surveillance software to the US Government. Brian Armstrong can virtue signal all he wants but actions speak louder than words.

If you use Coinbase, you should delete your account.
If you work at Coinbase, you should find a new job.
If your name is Brian Armstrong, you can kindly fuck right off.
