If your BSV startup thesis involves: 1) Ushering in a new economic paradigm. 2) Reengineering human economic incentives. You sound exactly like a top down communist dictator that thinks he can engineer a functioning economy top down and your startup will fail.

Unless you're running a nude cam site, Tipping is a gimmicky pander to BSV investor users. We've already had changetip, yours, etc on all the prior BTC forks and they all failed. It's not experimentation if you're repeating failed experiments. It's wasting time.

Man artificially breeds and creates dogs to suit his ends. Dogs can't comprehend human intelligence. All they know is that if they're obedient and follow the commands of their human they get what they want and live a good life. Now apply this logic to the creator of man.

There's more to reality than the material and observable. To think otherwise is to put man at the top of the universe's hierarchy of intelligence. Yet man did not create the universe.

If you compare Kindom of Heaven's depiction of mortal enemies in Saladin (leader of the Muslims) and King Baldwin (leader of the Christians) treating one another with the utmost reverence and respect during the so called "dark ages" with how vile political opponents in America treat one another today, You'd understand how today's "progressive" society is anything but.

I wouldn't be concerned with appealing to the mainstream yet. There's still much to be built to be able to provide substantively better experiences than existing social networks. A Bitcoin-based forum for Bitcoin builders and early adopters to gather and socialize is enough for now. This will allow us to "use Bitcoin to solve problems in Bitcoin."

I come from the banking industry. In that industry there was a competition between the big national banks and the small local credit unions. The only way the credit unions could compete with the big banks was to cooperate by using interoperable systems that enabled their customers to access their money at any credit union. BSV companies need to use this same approach to compete with Big Tech. You should be able to access your money and data with any BSV wallet or BSV service.

I don't want a world where one wallet or social network rules them all. I want a world where people can choose from a variety of diverse services based on what suits them best. It's incredibly ironic how we despise Dictators yet unconsciously adopt Dictatorial ways of thinking. One size fits all is simply a lazy and selfish notion.

Entrepreneurs in BSV need to stop trying to "kill things" (i.e. killing Twitter, killing Twetch, killing this or that wallet). Since when was entrepreneurship about "killing other companies"? People that say that are envious meglomaniacs lusting over power imo. We need to go back to first principles where entrepreneurship was simply about solving problems for other people.

I think the algorithm for deciding when to tip and/or comment goes as follows: 1. If you like a post, But don't have meaningful comments to add, Then you should tip. 2. If you like a post, And have meaningful comments to add, Then you should comment. 3. If you REALLY like a post, Then you should either: Both comment and tip, Or TIP BIG if you don't have meaningful comments to add. 4. If you don't like a post, But have meaningful comments to add, Then you should comment. 5. If you

The powping handle squatting issue is a result of BSV'ers misguided belief that markets are the silver bullet to all of humanity's problems. The truth is that communities and markets are DIFFERENT social arrangements that allow people to cooperate at DIFFERENT scales. Communities are a collection of "long-term reciprocal relationships" that enable people to cooperate with people they trust within their Dunbar number. Markets are a collection of "short-term transactional relationships" that en
