TL;DR: CoinSpice scours the Twittersphere to shine light upon the top crypto tweets of the week. Saifedean Ammous retreats to a Saif space, as someone dares to mildly praise bitcoin cash. Mike in Space asks a question no wants to answer, apparently. Lightning liquidity remains anemic. Quantitative easing from the Central Bank of Crypto? ShapeShift CEO Erik Voorhees mirrors BTC maximalists back to themselves.
Tweets of the Week #5 Saif Space
Well, that's our interview cancelled, then!
— Saifedean Ammous (@saifedean) August 16, 2019
Only personality Sal the Agorist made the fatal mistake of praising peer-to-peer trading of bitcoin cash (BCH) without the friction of know-your-customer (KYC) policies. The tweet was simple enough, “Join the counter-economy ~ Buy/sell BCH p2p, no kyc!”
Evidently, he’d previously booked noted BTC maximalist Saifedean Ammous for an interview. The notorious persnickety author and lecturer has a real grudge against BCH, and took notice. “Well,” Ammous commented furiously, “that’s our interview canceled, then!”
What one has to do with the other isn’t exactly clear, and Sal the Agorist was taken aback, writing, “You knew my beliefs when you agreed to come on the show! This seems like a cheap way of avoiding the hard questions.” Later, Sal would note how he and Ammous share the same economic intellectual lineage, the Austrian School. The Saif space cannot be moved.

#3 When the Books are Written
Hardly even $9M worth of BTC locked in Lightning & decreasing everyday.
When the books are written it will have been Blockstream that killed off Bitcoin.
There's a good chance BTC will go to zero in 5-10 years. pic.twitter.com/kPCzcM8FeC

#2 Quantitative Easing from the Central Bank of Crypto
Strange that the $BTC bull run stopped after tether stopped printing hundreds of millions of dollars per month. When’s the next round of quantitative easing scheduled from the Central Bank of Crypto to fight this terrible crypto recession? pic.twitter.com/f69yHuGyFO

#1 An Awful Lot Like Nocoiners
Maximalists disparaging all other cryptos sound an awful lot like nocoiners disparaging Bitcoin. Scam. Ponzy. Bagholders. It’ll never work. Whats the use? We already have X, why do we need Y? Blah blah blah. Embrace the diversity, this is what an open market in finance looks like

You should be taking out a loan right now.
Get as much money as you can from the banks. Fake some income if you have to.
Once you got the cash, go “all-in” #crypto and don’t look back 🚀
