TL;DR: CoinSpice scours the Twittersphere to shine light upon the top crypto tweets of the week. Purse io announces rebirth. The author of Black Swan and AntiFragile tells the world to use cryptocurrencies. Former BTC maxi goes all-in on bitcoin cash (BCH), calling it better. Those and more in this packed installment.
#12 Purse io Not Dead
The demise of Purse io was a real blow to online cryptocurrency use. For those concerned with bitcoin used as a medium of exchange, Purse.io was a beacon of what could be done. They existed for more than half a decade, and didn’t mind offering customers payment options with faster, less expensive cryptos like bitcoin cash (BCH).
Good news everybody! It looks like Purse is here to stay.

The formula yielded users double-digit percentage savings on purchases from the likes of Amazon. For whatever reason, Purse announced recently it was closing up shop, complete with end dates and apologies.
We were sure it had something to do with Amazon cutting their affiliate margins, but Purse denied as much. Original investors like Roger Ver, however, hinted the company could be saved. At publication, there’s no more to go on that the above tweet, but we’ll take it.

#10 Shady Tactics
This is the exact line that Chain Analysis leeches use on governments & businesses as they create a problem only they can solve.
Same line Trace used to try and shill his privacy coin.

#9 USD is a Shitcoin
Its the USD longs' money. It's called a post-mine. The Foundation issues a load of new coins to itself, diluting all the existing hodlers. It uses those coins to buy a basket of its homies' failed 💩coins to pump the price. So, the value of each USD is down but 💩 is up. Buy 💩.

#7 I am Not Hiring
I am not hiring.
If you are talking about a job with me, you are communicating with a fraud who is impersonating me to steal your identity.

#6 Crypto People Look for Their Next Role
Put together a spreadsheet where crypto people that were laid off or just in between jobs can add to it (inspired by ex-Opendoor doc). Hopefully this will be a resource for crypto teams hiring. Please don't spam it so I don't have to lock down the doc 🙏 https://t.co/P48Ekxm7c4

#4 LBRY.io Got More Views Than YouTube
Today for the first time, a video on my @LBRYio got more views than the same video on my YT channel.
Today I also reached 10k subs on LBRY, compared to 35k on YT.
& my latest video made almost $300 on LBRY, while on YT it was demonetized.
We're starting to have real alternatives. pic.twitter.com/mT4WFZzxIg

#2 Always Assumed the Bitcoin Community was Smarter
There was a time when I didn't understand why CCN, The Block & Coindesk are the biggest news websites, while Bitcoin Magazine is ranked so low and gets very few views.
Now I think I understand, but I'm still disappointed. Always assumed the Bitcoin community was smarter, though pic.twitter.com/cEm7ayxWZr
