XRP working with the government against BTC? not that they’re lying about energy usage and what not. it’s that they’re working with an entity who caused them trouble. to hurt crypto, no less. ever heard of snitches get stitches? where i’m from that serious shit. RIP XRP.
You missed the point. Bitcoin spawned the crypto industry as we know it. If any project ends up being used as a trustless P2P currency now or in the future, then you could say that Bitcoin succeeded. The Wright Flyer is useless from a practical point of view, but You wouldn’t say it wasn’t a success, as it paved the way for the aircraft of today. (none of which helps Mike Hearn of course, RIP)
>Yeah real specific. I'm not obligated to share my purchase history with you. Why does it matter? >Again, I'm not saying Bitcoin is faster, or cheaper, or better at privacy. I'm just saying you can actually use it vice any number of other cryptos people like to imagine are better. No judgement passed on using BTC, but I think it's silly to say that it's objectively the best when it doesn't handle speed, cost or privacy particularly well. I use XMR out of principle and if the business doesn't accept XMR, I can atomic swap or use services similar to [xmr.to](https://xmr.to) (RIP). If/when something better than XMR comes to prominence, I will use that. To be clear, I'm not an XMR maximalist and honestly don't think it's a particularly great investment. I just think it's a great payment tool.
Gen Y/ Early Z, i think the majority of CC holders will be most likely crypto was talked about whilst we wasted our teenage life on RuneScape/WoW/MW2/ or anonymously browsing 4chan and checking BTC/LTC/NMC(RIP) prices we was born into the volatility, molded by it💀
