Here on Yours, I'm sure I'm preaching to the choir but I didn't into Bitcoin to get rich. Nowadays that seems like what all of the "Bitcoiners" want to do. They're just "hodling" their coins to watch it rise in value. Like stocks. Or perhaps more like tulips. No, when I got into Bitcoin years back, it was because I loved the idea of a digital currency in an ever-more-becoming-digital world. A digital currency where I control my own money, no matter what.
The fact that the government (or anyone else for that matter) can't just print up more Bitcoin or that banks can't just pretend they have more money than they do is enough to sell me. My money gains value and maintains that value.
Nowadays I pay for pretty much everything with Bitcoin. My bank account usually sits damn close to empty with my money stored in Bitcoin (and moreso Bitcoin Cash). I pay many of my bills with Bitcoin. I pay for my groceries with Bitcoin. If there's a store I can go to that lets me pay with Bitcoin, I'll prefer that over a non-Bitcoin-accepting store. Or restaraunt. Or anything. Even if it costs me slightly more.
I got into Bitcoin to *spend* Bitcoin.

As a observer and learner, not long in cryptocurrency, but hungry for true, browsing online places, like Slack, occasionally Reddit, Twitter, Telegram, I am starting to notice some names and what energy they carry. I did certainly noticed you and your kindness, and I appreciate you are here for a higher reason then getting rich. May good things keep happening. :)

I got into Bitcoin because I was opting out of the Legacy system. I went 100% BTC years ago and avoided fiat wherever possible. I got sick of tyranny and too-big-to-fail banker bailouts. I was sick of regulations, permissions, and rules that were taking away my freedoms. I was being held back, and I knew the rest of humanity was being held back too. We were not being allowed to reach our ultimate potential. I was sick of a bunch of central bank scammers that can print the money out of thin air and give it to their scammer friends at my expense. Bitcoin for me was always about financial sovereignty and Liberty. It was about not being a slave to oligarchs that are continuously trying to eat out my substance, and change my country from the Land of the Free capitalist system, to a communist totalitarian state.
Bitcoin is freedom to use your money how you want without needing permission, and without it being manipulated by a bunch of crooks. With segwit, small blocks, and centralized 2nd layer solutions, AXA/Bilderberg funded BlockStream's plan is to create a Bitcoin system that requires permission yet again. A system that they can also manipulate, control, and inflate. Aware and awake people see right through this, and see that Bitcoin Cash is the true vision, and it has extremely strong grassroots market support from these enlightened economic players. The true honey badger is not a ticker or a name, or a github repo, or a bunch of losers in dorky hats. The true honey badger of Bitcoin is the market, and the market runs Bitcoin. This is why I have converted 100% of my segwitcoins to BCH. We are the pioneers of Bitcoin, the true rebels against the criminal money monopoly. Just remember the price of Liberty, and the Price of Bitcoin is eternal vigilance. Bitcoin has always been about Liberty, and getting rich is just a side effect.

I agree with many of the statement's and beliefs held here and i must say its great to see bitcoin cash working so well for this purpose. I must say its also great to see the lightning network functioning on BCH and i cant wait to see what comes out of this platform. Ryan x Charles seems like a very smart and genuine dude who cares deeply about growing this technology and community and i cant wait for future developments!
