TL;DR: CoinSpice scours the Twittersphere to shine light upon the top crypto tweets of the week. Never a dull day in the land of cryptocurrency. Famous because he’s famous for being famous, EOS’s Brock Pierce hints at governance manipulation by Chinese oligarchs. Cranky, irritable dudes out at Samouri Wallet, BTC maximalists to their core, are even put-off by the @Bitcoin account change in tone. BTC LN maxi assures just 18 more months! Influencer Nye looks for actual, real cryptocurrency adoption and usage, and Crypto_Deleted_Tweets grabs two top spots.

#4 18 Months!
Agreed, but we have 18 months to improve Lightning Network to the point that it can support this demand! Alternatively I could order the Dept of Treasury to nationalize Coinbase and do everything off-chain there. 🙃

#3 We Might be Able to Help
I have traveled around the world for $crypto events for the last 1.5 years and one thing has stood out:
No one actually uses crypto.
I have met maybe 5-10 people in this time that actively use Bitcoin/crypto beyond trading.
We have a long way to go before adoption. 🤷♂️

#1 Favorite Part About Bitcoin
My favorite part about Bitcoin is buying a $100 hardware wallet and a $300 node to secure and verify $50 worth of bitcoins.
