👣︎ FOOTNOTES
  1. Look this is the drama timeline and this is part of the drama. I am not really interested in this story, kinda sickening but here we are. LINK ↩︎
  2. Despite research from Mononaut, Mechanic is on a warpath to make Oceans empty blocks justified rather than their teams fault. Interesting story line. LINK ↩︎
  3. Read this tweet from Tucker “Import the Third World, become the Third World. That’s what we just saw. This won’t stop Trump. He’ll win the election if he’s not killed first. But it does mark the end of the fairest justice system in the world. Anyone who defends this verdict is a danger to you and your family.” Wild shit. LINK ↩︎
  4. I don’t know what I don’t know. This is why following autistic schizo’s on twitter is helpful. In the wake of Trump’s conviction, Goodwin surfaces a masterful froggy tweet showcasing Goodhart’s Law. What is Goodhart’s Law?

    “”When a measure becomes a target, it ceases to be a good measure.” This principle implies that when a particular measure or metric is used as an indicator to guide decision-making or policy, people tend to optimize for that measure, which can lead to unintended consequences and distort the metric’s original purpose. Essentially, the effectiveness of the measure is compromised because individuals and organizations alter their behavior to achieve the target, rather than genuinely improving the underlying processes or outcomes the measure was intended to represent.”

    So what does this have to do with Trump conviction? See the tweet first. We see the talking heads pumping Trump’s brand bags in the wake of his conviction. So trump is dominating the media and has been. You gauge someone’s success by how much the public is interested in them and the media covers them, especially in an election, but here we have a Presidential candidate dominating the newsfeed not on natural interest in his position or policy but because of something else. This is Goodhart’s Law, that the measure of his popularity is being skud by this “current thing”. Wild. ↩︎
  5. This is per a spaces hosted by TEM and Breedlove’s ex wife. She made amny allegations on the spaces including her Swan account which she DCA’d into for 3 years was blocked access to her by Robert’s buddy and CEO/Owner of Swan Cory. CLASSIC. ↩︎
  6. King Mike made a fool. 21 days before he was on stage saying that no ETH etf would be approved, and here we are. LINK ↩︎
  7. Michelle Weekly and many other shitting on psuedonyms. Feels weird man. LINK ↩︎
  8. Noticing the use of “marks” as in targets for scams being used as well as the “CP” framing. All from the Tether guy. Also the Tether guys telling you to calm down and don’t worry about Samourai… wtf is happening? ↩︎
  9. Is Cory Tether Funded? Is his whole anti ordinal shitcoin stance a grift if he is funded by Tether? ↩︎
  10. Neil kills with this meme. Fuck the suits. LINK ↩︎
  11. Man the algo gives and takes. This time the algo is finally feeding me S&D again. This tweet is so based, highlights some delusions some bitcoiners have. LINK ↩︎
  12. Who is the source? ODELL is the fucking source. LINK ↩︎
  13. Patrick has some of the most retarded takes on Twitter. This one is incredible to see. I would have never thought we would see the inlike frenemies of Ordinal Enjoyers and Samourai Gang united as enemies of the Filter Bois. LINK ↩︎
  14. I have a personal folder on my desktop of soyjaks so I appreciate this meme. LINK ↩︎
  15. Thinking through ways to communicate more information in smaller space. Braille could be a solution? LINK ↩︎
  16. Incredible to see. I thought Isaiah was losing it early in the week, but this is an actual thing. So weird, search his TL. LINK ↩︎
  17. Slay your hero. One of those moments. The moment he opens his mouth it was like wtf is this shit. Then he posts a manifesto. Read if you want but whatever. I am more just amazed how an artist can shit on digital art, this is coming from a guy who uses digital tools to make many of his own pieces. The virtue signalling and moral police is what is cringe for me. ↩︎
  18. Finally, Craig gets the justice he deserves. I am so glad this is coming to an end. God bless all the devs that have been harassed and especially Hodlonaut. ↩︎
  19. The fact he tweeted this is such a chef’s kiss. LINK ↩︎
  20. Excellent tweet from my friend Ti. LINK ↩︎
  21. I think Bob sends this from a well meaning place but he is an Ocean miner so it is clearly biased. The framing is bad. Please propose a change besides your moral standing. ↩︎
  22. This is melting so many bitcoiners brains, people who have completely missed the plot. They see bags, not who is holding them. Yes I realize open protocols means anyone can participate, but let’s please call out what the fuck is happening. Now I am questioning my negative feeling towards the filter guys, they are framing narrative the same way I am with the bankers. FML. What is happening. Here’s my proposal, fuck the bankers, fuck saylor, fuck cia, fuck paypal mafia, fuck tether. Also I am ok with inscriptions. ↩︎
  23. These things are usually cringe but I think the accent makes it acceptable. ↩︎
  24. Of course not, I can’t believe you checked this footnote. But they are spreading the memes. There’s Not Enough Coins ↩︎
  25. Jeez what do you think his legal team is thinking when he posts this lmfao. It has been interesting to see how River has been building while others are just talking shit and letting Ripple hold their coins. LINK ↩︎
  26. Alex Thorn rips a long tweet on his case for BTC to continue pumping. LINK ↩︎
  27. ZH continues to shoot shots LINK ↩︎
  28. Maybe Vivek has been whispering in his ear, or maybe the inscriptions NFT collection his team dropped changed his mind. Unlikely lmfao. LINK ↩︎
  29. Mononaut has been watching the mempools, and observing below dust threshold transactions, turns out is was Marathon flexing their muscles. LINK ↩︎
  30. Francis has been chewing on ways to scale Bitcoin for a while, and he’s landed on Liquid as being the best option (currently). He has been in Costa Rico doing work, so he knows a thing or two about onboarding and user experience. It’s just always interesting when people side with spooks. LINK ↩︎
  31. Magoo deep thread on the US Bitcoin nuclear bomb to dollarize the planet. LINK ↩︎
  32. Always has been? Well when you put a flag in the ground this happens. People generally want their memes to propagate and will shit all over competition memes. ↩︎
  33. You love to see it. He could have worn anything in the world but Dorsey is so on brand. LINK ↩︎
  34. Incredible to see how people react to the cover of the magazine. The same people that tell you that bitcoin is freedom will tell you how you are supposed to use the open protocol. So weird. The market is going to use the open protocol how it wants, it always has been and always will be this way. If that changes then it is no longer open. LINK ↩︎
  35. The boys had a good run. Bad ROI but fun nonetheless. LINK ↩︎
  36. I don’t know if this is an eye roll or interesting, but this is where we are at in the cycle. This is Bitcoin Twitter. LINK ↩︎
  37. The POTUS account is one big gaslight. When you see shit like this you know Biden has nothing to do with his comms team. I think it goes to support the theory of manchurain candidate etc. LINK ↩︎
  38. You love to see the hubris on display. You publish a couple mini documentaries and then you’re saying shit like this. LINK ↩︎
  39. Norbert has been sharing play by play from the courtroom. Cruise his timeline. It is really incredible to see how many lies. It has also been great to see Hodlonaut‘s take on all this. Praying for justice in this one. ↩︎
  40. Bitcoin Mining And ERCOT – The Data Tells The Story
    The EIA Emergency Information Collection Is Alarming ↩︎
  41. Rage quit, good job Deniz. LINK ↩︎
  42. We knew things were going to get weird, but I was not expecting French Montana X Maye Musk collaboration. LINK ↩︎
  43. Nitter Is Shutting Down Following Changes to X Guest Accounts ↩︎
  44. This is the uncomfortable truth the filter bois don’t want to talk about. They will ignore the fact that filters pave the way for way more insane filters. LINK ↩︎
  45. Dr Craig Wright Offers Settlement To COPA in Legal Confrontations Over Bitcoin ↩︎
  46. Despite all the bad PR… Cory is “re-engaged” to fight jpegs. Get over yourself. LINK ↩︎

  52. BTC price risks $40K breakdown as GBTC ETF steps up Bitcoin outflows ↩︎

  67. RW twitter is on fire with memes right now. So weird and creepy. LINK ↩︎
  68. Bitcoin Twitter lost it’s mind. SEC twitter got hacked and said ETF approved. Gensler then has to come in and save face saying nothing is approved. Markets dump on the news. The memes flow. ↩︎
