Guy’s Take #59 – We’re Not Going Anywhere

“Bitcoin is not merely a network, it’s a foundation for an anti-authoritarian political movement in an increasingly authoritarian world. If you’re looking for why so many people are deeply passionate about Bitcoin & nothing else, start there.” – Guy Swann

Today I decide to rant about what Bitcoin maximalism means to me, why I am totally and completely focused on Bitcoin and nothing else, and why I think “crypto” has lost the plot. Crypto is interested in building a bunch of toys to be accepted by the establishment, Bitcoin is a declaration of independence from it.

The other episodes mentioned for diving deeper into this topic:
• My Path to Bitcoin Maximalism (by Sessions)
• How to Be a Bitcoin Maximalist (Pete Rizzo)
• Setting the Record Straight (Nic Carter)
