I submit this as evidence of BTC being primarily speculative
@Elizafox Okay... so my ~$20 of BTC that someone gave me a few years ago is now (for the moment) worth almost $1k.
Unfortunately, my current wallet is broken (hard drive got full, client apparently munged something) and I may have to restore (again) from a 4-year-old backup that takes about a week to catch up... so can't cash in exactly now.
This is a Mastodon instance run by the Interlinked Foundation, a 501(c)(3) non-profit devoted to eliminating discrimination. We are an instance that blocks authoritarian political violence, ultra-nationalism, fascism, the alt-right, Stalinism, and authoritarian ideology in general. It's intended to be a safe place for those tired of violent rhetoric as well as a place safe from discrimination.
