Western Bitcoin critics enjoy civil liberties and stable currencies. But billions lack their privilege. I spoke to @ireaderinokun, @SudanHODL, and @KalKassa to find out why millions in Nigeria, Sudan, Ethiopia and beyond are escaping fiat for Bitcoin: bitcoinmagazine.com/culture/…

Remember that the anti-bitcoin crowd is openly advocating for the continued suffering of tens of millions of people around the world. Another great read from the Human Rights Foundation’s @gladstein bitcoinmagazine.com/culture/…

Incredibly worrisome development that sets apart the current conflict from previous Israel-Gaza wars. Palestinian and Israelis are attacking each other in the streets, torching holy places, shops. Israel hasn't witnessed such inter-communal violence in decades.
Arab-Jewish violence raging across Israel in multiple locations: Lod, Jaffa, Bat Yam, Tiberius, Acre, Haifa.

This argument will only get louder as we move into the future. Just remember: Proof-of-Work is the innovation and the escape from the Proof-of-Stake system that runs the world.
JPMorgan on why ETH > BTC: "Ethereum 2.0 shifts from an energy intensive Proof-of-Work validation mechanism to a much less intensive Proof-of-Stake validation mechanism. As a result, less computational power and energy consumption are needed to maintain the ethereum network."

Despite what many privileged Western elites would like you to believe, Bitcoin is providing incredible utility to millions of people around the world. We need to make sure they protect themselves by holding their own keys. tftc.io/martys-bent/issue-99…

Lukashenka's regime napalmed the independent space in Belarus. Authorities are closing newspapers and media, galleries and bookstores, businesses and shops, parties, and trade unions. All those who spoke out against the government are outlawed. This lawlessness must be stopped.

China’s far west Xinjiang region had the sharpest known drop in birthrates of any territory in modern history, a new analysis shows, beating out declines during the Syrian civil war and the Rwandan genocide. The 2017-2019 plunge hit largely Uyghur areas. apne.ws/v6o1vNh
