Welcome to /r/btc!

When r/Bitcoin moderators began censoring content and banning users they disagreed with, r/btc became a community for free and open crypto discussion. This happened long before the creation of Bitcoin Cash.

Over the years /r/btc became community of historians & torchbearers, preservers of Satoshi's Bitcoin for future generations. In this place you can learn what "Bitcoin" means and what it truly represents.

Bitcoin is the currency of the Internet. A distributed, worldwide, decentralized digital money. Unlike traditional currencies such as dollars, bitcoins are issued and managed without the need for any central authority whatsoever.

There is no government, company, or bank in charge of Bitcoin. As such, it is more resistant to wild inflation and corrupt banks. With Bitcoin, you can be your own bank. Read the original Bitcoin Whitepaper by Satoshi Nakamoto.

We welcome free and open Bitcoin-related discussion, Bitcoin news, and exclusive AMA (Ask Me Anything) interviews from top Bitcoin and cryptocurrency leaders. This subreddit was created to uphold and honor free speech and the spirit of Bitcoin; learn more about us.

See a list of past AMAs here. If you are interested in having your own AMA, please message the mods and let us know.

pos.cash error

If anyone knows who is the creator or owner of the https://pos.cash/ repository

I wish I could correct the decimals,

If you send 1.1 USD it does not reflect it in the history, it leaves 1 USD

Bitcoin whale donated 8 BTC to Julian Assange to covering private jet costs

Julian Assange, the WikiLeaks founder, has returned to Australia after an extended legal ordeal in the UK, significantly aided by the cryptocurrency community. A notable Bitcoin whale donation of 8 BTC, valued at approximately $492,000, covered the expenses of Assange's private jet back to Australia.

Furthermore, AssangeDAO successfully raised $53 million in Ethereum to support his legal defenses against charges by the U.S. government.

My biggest regret

Back when Bitcoin was around 4 USD, i first heared about it. I read the crazy ideas of it being at 10k one day and i believed it. I was convinced. At the time, i was not 18 yet, i earned around 400€ per month and had no credit card. Anyways i really wanted to buy BTC for one of my monthly wages and hold it for 10 years.

It just was still very difficult to buy BTC at the time and i had no credit card and so i thought about asking a colleague at work to help me out but didnt manage to say anything becouse i was worried about what the other colleagues would be saying.

So my whole Plan of holding almost 100 BTC for 10 years failed, i forgot about it for many years until i got my First BTC around 700 USD which i sold again for only little ~x2 profit...

Now today if i would have those almost 100 BTC, i could turn it into almost 6.000.000 USD, pay back my familys debt of ~1.500.000 USD and have some 4.500.000 USD for a pleasent rest of my life.

It would be the perfect moment now to do it, resolve any and all Problems and grant me my great travel plans. Instead becouse i failed to get the Job done, i now have to see how to make a living in a not so nice anymore Germany and deal with simple Jobs and day to day struggles...

So that i not got those 100 BTC early is the biggest regret in my life.

When BTC was in the $300's range, on Coinbase the volume was 30k-90k per week. BCH has been doing 300k-1m per week for long periods of time. BCH interest is much greater than when BTC was at BCH's price.

Even on other exchanges like Bitfinex, their volume was only slightly higher than Coinbase at that time but still nothing compared to today's trading volume of BCH on Coinbase alone. BCH seems to have over 10x-30x the adoption at least, of what BTC had at that time it was at BCH price range.

So it may stand to reason that if BTC with lower investor and user interest/adoption, at some point just went to 1k then jumped to 20k+, this could easily happen on BCH at some point as well. Especially now that we have an ETF precedent, meaning its just a matter of time until BCH also gets an ETF.

Now yes, next week starting Monday July 1st, MTGox holders will get like ~95k BCH, and some may choose to sell, but compared to trading volumes on Coinbase alone, the whales who trade BCH do so with much greater sums than a 1 time 95k BCH distribution.

Lastly unlike BTC at that time, we even already have brokerages that support direct BCH purchases, such as Robinhood, ETORO, WEBULL. Interactive brokers, and tastytrade. I think it is just a matter of time until we see the supply of cheap coins run out based on the high trading volume metrics, compared to BTC's historical metrics.

Fear & Greed Index at 18 month low - 30

The Crypto Fear and Greed Index for Bitcoin has dropped to a score of 30, a significant decline in over 18 months. This is largely due to concerns about potential market impacts from the upcoming Mt. Gox Bitcoin repayments and ongoing government sales of seized Bitcoin.

The Mt. Gox issue in particular could lead to a substantial release of Bitcoin into the market, potentially worth $8.5 billion. Additionally, sales by the German government contribute to the downward pressure on the market. This situation mirrors past sentiment lows, such as the one following the FTX collapse.

r/btc is also being censored.

I just made a post questioning Blockstream and the Jade, which has been removed without reason and without notifying me.

Edit: My post is up again after a little while, no mod explanations (yet): https://www.reddit.com/r/btc/s/NexXtyAoIG

Hello non-censored sub, is Blockstream really not to be trusted, and what about the Jade hw?

I’ve got a Coldcard and a Jade for two differently taxable incomes — Should I keep Bitcoin away from my Jade-made seed phrase?

(I know you’re all mainly Bitcoin Cash, but would love some non-censored source-backed information plz)

Wish you a great summer day 🌱

Today, we received a new monitor for the Satoshi #1 server room and upgraded the BitcoinCashMesh TOR relay. Additionally, we installed a new instance of TAILS (The Amnesic Incognito Live System) in the Satoshi #3 server room, all powered by Bitcoin Cash.
