We heard in a couple of Pomp pods - this one and the one with Miltem - how it's "troubling" that the "early adopters" found Bitcoin by "luck" or "accident", and the host never challenges that. Perhaps, it's because he also believes this nonsense. Time magazine covered Bitcoin in 2011, and Chuck Schumer covered Silk Road for everyone that summer also on MSM. Bitcoin went down to 2 USD that autumn, while these and most other brainiac geniuses considered "thought leaders and influencers" now, were either ignoring or laughing at those of us building the Bitcoin infrastructure and ecosystem then. So this narrative that early adopters found and understood the importance of Bitcoin "by luck or accident" is a blatant falsehood, which continues to be repeated as a given on this and other so called "best" crypto pods.
