This week in bitcoin. Straight to the point. No bullshit. Every Saturday.
Thought of the week from Marty Bent:
Imagine being an adult today, seeing all of the rapid change that has happened in your lifetime, and writing Bitcoin off based off mainstream media coverage. You really hate to see it.
Also, the Lightning Network is going to trigger a bunch of people and a massive amount of innovation this decade. The haters are going to be even more irate.
Thought of the week from Matt Odell:
I hate KYC but understand it is required for compliance. I personally try to avoid services that require KYC as much as possible but appreciate that more options for bitcoiners in general is a net benefit. That said, I take issue with lack of transparent policy. Users should be able to make an informed decision without funds held hostage when they try to withdraw.
Please practice responsible stacking. They aren't really your sats until you withdraw them to your own wallet(s). Bitcoin held on exchanges and custodial wallets can be lost without warning. Not your keys, not your coins.
