selling my soul for bitcoin, a terrible copypasta i made
I wanted to eat Bitcoin. All of it. Just the sweet taste in my mouth was enough for me to sell my soul for it, you know. And so, I did it. I sold my soul for Bitcoin. No regrets, nothing! I am very proud of my decision. Now all of my meals are made out of Bitcoin and only Bitcoin. Bitcoin pizza, Bitcoin pancakes... I think you get the point. This sweet, mouthwatering Bitcoin changed my life. For real, dude. My IQ has become way higher than before! So in conclusion, you should sell your soul for bitcoin.
Hey guys and girls, I just want to give a shout out to the Pizza Guy. I've seen a lot of posts lately poking fun at him so I want to address just how important this man is to Bitcoin. When Bitcoin started no one knew what it was capable of. It's hard to believe that people weren't even sure if it was worth ANYTHING. Keeping in mind people were speculating and at the time 10k BTC was trading for ~$41. Pizza Guy changed all this! Single handedly this man created the first real world value use case for Bitcoin. This Pizza represents so much more than just 10,000BTC for a pizza. Bitcoin went from nerdy digital tokens to "money" with that purchase. For the first time Bitcoin could be used to purchase real world items! So I just want to say thank you Pizza Guy for growing the ecosystem, for creating the first real world transaction for Bitcoin, and helping to bring BTC to the mainstream! Thank you!

Why does anyone here call Bitcoin a currency and compare it to currencies when no one here would spend it? (change my mind)
Yeah... this is going to be an unpopular opinion, but I really would like someone to change my mind. It clearly isn't a currency, or we wouldn't commemorate the day that Laszlo Hanyecz actually spent 10,000 BTC on a couple of pizzas! Currency isn't for HODL'ing! Sure, it is a great idea to save, but generally and most commonly, a currency is for SPEDN'ing! Transaction fees for small amounts are ludicrous! I can't imagine every spending Bitcoin on a cup of coffee because the transaction fee (the last time I checked on getting it out of Coinbase) was $20+... if I'm understanding the thing correctly. I'll admit I know very little about it but I have to also admit I'm more than a little pissed at being able to purchase it in Canada and not actually change it out... oh wait... there was that one exchange in Canada where the guy died and all the Bitcoin was lost, wasn't there? So perhaps I am a tad annoyed, but I think I'm mostly annoyed that I would never use Bitcoin as a currency! Even if I could, I wouldn't for fear of having another "Bitcoin Pizza Day", but this time in my honor! And I am serious. How can we still refer to Bitcoin as a currency? It was there as an ideal, but I feel it's just an investment vehicle now and not a counter-culture currency. Change my mind?
