Cobra Mocks BTC “Buy the Dip” Mantra
Anonymous crypto personality Cobra is a puzzle. Some say it’s a dude just rolling. Others believe the account is run by several trolls. Whatever the case, it sure is fun to read.
Can maximalists fucking stop telling people to “buy the dip”? You guys have been saying this every step of the way down from $19k. Bitcoin could go to $3k and stay there *FOREVER*, there is nothing guaranteed about Bitcoin rising, but many seem to think its a universal truth!

Bitcoin Girl’s Dating Advice
Next up, our dear friend Naomi Brockwell with an anti-statist couple counseling tweet. Brockwell took a popular meme floating around the sphere and gave an anti-government spin close to our hearts. Look for a special episode of Milk, the CoinSpice.io podcast, with Naomi coming up soon.
Ladies, if he:
– reads your texts
– gives unsolicited advice and hurts you if you don’t comply
– never respects your privacy
– takes money out of your wallet
– tells you what you can and can’t smoke
He’s not your man. He’s the government.

BSV and Replay Protection
And that Hash War reorganized the Bitcoin Cash community, with folks taking sides in some not-so-obvious ways. One debate seemed to rage more than others, and that had to do with actions conforming to principles.
So, @DanielKrawisz, now SV is shitting on the index and adding replay protection. Can you be done with them now?

Mow’s New Hat
The twitter mock account Lightning Hat Store advertises a fake store to lampoon Blockstream. Satirically, this time they have designed a good looking cap sporting the Bitcoin SV logo, directed to Samson Mow.
My Lightning Hat Store hasn’t been getting much business lately due to the bear market, and the user unfriendliness of the Lightning Network, but here’s a new hat with the $BSV logo, my new favorite Bitcoin. Enjoy, Samson. pic.twitter.com/VvT7CXpRpG
