TOP CRYPTO TWEETS of the WEEK: Vitalik Doubts Off-Chain L2s, Garzik on Extremism, Maxi-ish

TL;DR: CoinSpice scours the Twittersphere to shine light upon the top crypto tweets of the week. CoinEX CEO and founder Haipo Yang breaks down block limits. Bitcoin pioneer Jeff Garzik gives some historical perspective. BTC Maximalists continue to be exposed by holding them to their own silly standard, and Ethereum co-founder Vitalik Buterin dares to tweet heresy.    

Tweets of the Week #6 Can’t Make it Right

#5 It Really Does Get This Extreme

CoinSpice is fond of documenting BTC maximalism because it is untenable. Literally no one believes in it or has ever truly held to it — among those who actually live and work within crypto, that is. There are as many reasons for embracing cryptocurrency as enthusiasts, and it is that very market of ideas driving innovation and progress.

There hasn’t ever been just one store of value, medium of exchange, nor unit of account in human history. Sure, aspects of each variation have dominated, but it is precisely that working out, experimenting, and freedom of choice that is so very valuable when it comes to potential of having money separated from state control.

A good rule of thumb in crypto, if you’re relatively new to the space, is to realize most of the loudest, most obnoxious voices in tweets are paper tigers, goldfish with fake shark fins. They’re clueless, out there agitating and shilling like the peers they claim to hate. BTC maximalists wouldn’t be so laughable if they weren’t closed to basic reality; but, then again, that would go against their maximalism. As most now are discovering in plain sight, BTC maximalists are simply crafted personas for social media, “ish” on their principles, and a lot of fun to poke at.
