everybody loves bitcoin, the badly designed cryptocurrency that sucks

@revenant Not surprised. Typical purchases on Steam are small enough that even the lower fees with SegWit can be 10%+.
@revenant #Bitcoin is the worst cryptocurrency except for all the others that preceded it.
@revenant Don't see any mention of the fact that most bitcoin is mostly mined by burning coal increasing global energy costs (likely by a small margin).
@revenant Really surprised that Microsoft is still accepting them for purchases on XBox
@mdm i didn't know they ever started doing that. wonder what the usage statistics are like
@revenant I didn't even know Steam accepted Bitcoin in the first place, mes dieux.
@revenant I didn't even know Steam were accepting Bitcoin...
@revenant I haven’t taken the time to truly understand how cryptocurrency works and this article makes it sound like it doesn’t. 🤭
@revenant Ahh, bitcoin, the currency of choice for white, rich trumpist folks.
