TL;DR: CoinSpice scours the Twittersphere to shine light upon the top crypto tweets of the week. Brenna Sparks makes the case for Proof of Boobs (PoB). Professor steps out of Ivory Tower to protect levers of power, and is shocked to learn the plebs are displeased. The defendant in a former BTC developer’s sexual assault defamation lawsuit accepts BCH donations. Reminding folks bitcoin was all about P2P digital cash is not allowed, and fiat has a real money laundering problem.

#4 When Tenure Cannot Save You From Public Opinion
All day with these tweets. Just because I said like 2 critical things about bitcoin does not make me a warmonger and a lover of banks! https://t.co/7kNPaBzxvD

Dr. Baradaran recently testified as an expert witness before the US Senate Banking Committee on the issue of cryptocurrencies, and while there presumed all debate about privately issued money has been litigated; it’s over. The government has won, that’s that. So when it comes to cryptocurrency, those who advocate stateless digital cash better get in line and bow to regulators. She agreed with everything senators put forth, acting as intellectual cover for their expanding power over the ecosystem. She was shocked to learn some crypto enthusiasts had a different opinion. Go figure.
#3 Insult, Meet Injury
update: as per many requests, we’ve now got Bitcoin Cash and Monero addresses for donations
thank you everyone again!

#2 Not Allowed
Reminder: You're not allowed to remind people that Bitcoin was supposed to be a p2p electronic cash system, and that Bitcoin Cash exists because BTC's was manipulated in the direction of "digital gold".
I believe in both BTC, & BCH, because I was there before the "NY Compromise"

#1 Should Fiat Be Outlawed?
Fines for 𝗷𝘂𝘀𝘁 the laundering of money:
Wachovia – $160m
Deutsche Bank – $670m
Bank of Australia – $700m
ING – $900m
Citigroup – $237m
Standard Chartered – $967m
Commerzbank – $1.45b
HSBC – $1.9b
JPMorgan – $2.05b
And they all used the US DOLLAR, not bitcoin. 🤔
