TL;DR: CoinSpice scours the Twittersphere to shine light upon the top crypto tweets of the week. Millennial Bitcoin ownership seems sleight of handish. Binance CEO judges a project’s determination by its founders’ body art. Poloniex is getting awfully chummy with Tron. Well-known BTCer reluctantly considers Bitcoin Cash, and our favorite sh*tposter gets two nods this week.
Tweets of the Week: #8 Millennial Bitcoin Ownership Ain’t
Permissionless means exactly that. There is no one, right way to interact with Bitcoin. However, if the point is to own Bitcoin, to effectively possess it as best we understand the concept, that requires not sharing your private keys. Not your keys, Bitcoiners are fond of chanting, not your coins.

Whereas the above statistic is indeed encouraging, depending on your definition of progress, what it proves is only that Bitcoin is entering the retail investment market as part of some younger folks’ portfolios. The point of crypto for many Bitcoiners is a kind of financial sovereignty, overcoming trusted third-parties. This isn’t that, and perhaps what it does suggest is crypto education has a long, long way to go.
#7 Party Foul
I'm glad I took everything off Poloniex. Not a good look. https://t.co/ITnIFXSUgI

#4 Without Even a Hint of Irony
The story behind the Binance tattoo, exactly a year ago.
Since then, I ask 2 questions to see how determined founders are: 1, are you willing to move to a different country? 2, have you tattoo'ed your logo yet?

#3.5 Not to be Outdone
Well it looks like #BitcoinCash blew up while I was gone.
Perhaps it's time to fill in the tat 🤣

#3 The Virus. It’s Spreading.
*Pomp calling former gf's…*
Pomp: Hey, I know it's been awhile…I'm calling to tell you about the virus. It's spreading and I thought I should let you know
"Oh my god. Seriously? *crying* What is it? What did you give me"
Pomp: Check your Coinbase account

#2 Humble Investor
.@Poloniex 's decisions are made by the team independently. As a humble investor of #Poloniex, I respect and support their decision. As a HODLR of $BNB, $HT, $OKB and other platform tokens, I always support and partner with all mainstream exchanges. Always BUIDL!
