Seeing Core supporters for what they are: hypocritical cultists
Every day I see posts from Bitcoin Core (BTC) supporters who say Roger Ver bought @Bitcoin or /r/btc. It’s a false claim and is never backed up with evidence, and usually gets tweeted and posted many hundreds of times; mainly by bots and fake Core accounts, with some real accounts sprinkled in here and there.
When I turned the tables on Core supporters yesterday and said that Adam Back, the CEO of Blockstream bought /r/bitcoin, they went crazy, as I imagined they would.
The funny thing is, this behavior clearly shows how cult-like Core supporters have become. They are completely oblivious to the irony of this entire exercise.
You see, they make these same claims every day. Just search Twitter or Reddit and you will find hundreds of similar posts like the ones pictured below.
But when a non-cult member makes the same claim but reversed upon them with someone they idolize, the same logic they used previously is now considered “delusional, loony, weird” and so on.
Core cultists did everything they could to try to disparage me in my tweets as to make me look crazy so any outsider would think I’m a conspiracy theorist nutbag, as shown below.
When in reality, they are the ones doing exactly what they say is crazy.
This is why many in the crypto space have come to the conclusion that Bitcoin Core (BTC) supporters have become nothing more than a cult, who have exploited the name Bitcoin into a perversion of HODL and lambo memes.
What is a cult?
" Cults are a “self” or ego-based community of people who are brought together by a belief system [...] All cults will have a basic requirement and you will not be allowed entry if you don’t meet it. Cults often draw people in emotionally." Source
If you need more reason to understand that Core is just facade of bots, pump and dumpers, and cultists, I recommend you watch a fantastic series by long time Bitcoiner Daniel Krawisz who discusses in several videos how Core has become a cult. This is a good start:
Other recommended reading is from Derek Magill, who breaks down in several posts how the Core cult works. Here is a good start: https://derekmagill.com/2018/05/30/crash-course-bitcoin-core/
