Archives TodayI was interested in Bitcoin the currency, but since I’m not in charge of anything I have the choice to accept Bitcoin is now a settlement network or I leave. I’m not sure, what to do . . . but I have some suggestions for this sub:
change the sidebar from “Bitcoin is the currency of the Internet” to “Bitcoin is the settlement network of the internetdelete posts that say “X accepts Bitcoin” until lightning is ready. By now this is useless and sucks users in believing wrongly that Bitcoin was a currency
stop talking about bitcoin as a cryptocurrency. Allmost every altcoin is a cryptocurrency, but since 2016 we know bitcoin is a settlement network.
Edit: Considering many comments it would have been better to say: Bitcoin is no payment network than bitcoin is no currency. But the fact remains that Bitcoin is no currency that many people can use on a daily basis to pay (I think the term “currency of the internet” implies something like fast and modern money which you can use to pay. That is a wrong assumption and should be corrected.
