The old cliche that there are few women in Bitcoin is getting a bit tiring. Plenty of women contribute to the technology, community, and investment side of what we consider one of the most exciting human developments of our century. Alongside VPNs, of course.
If you’re on twitter and not already following these women, do so now!

Unpopular opinion: we need more bitcoin maximalists to teach journalists how to question blockchain projects (regardless of whether this view is correct).

3. Mir Liponi (@mir_btc)
Mir is a Bitcoin maximalist at heart and will call out all the scammers, posers, and wannabe thought leaders in the ‘crypto’ space. She’s at the heart of Bitcoin pop-culture, too!
When a cryptocurrency has a company, founders, a creator who isn't anonymous and is still around, a marketing/advertisement division, those are never good signs.
They're symptoms of possible scams and/or in the best scenario trivial single points of failure.

For Your Hydra, Bitcoin is mainly a tool to bring down the state. Her tweets are about politics and social issues and how Bitcoin fits in with them.
When I was a kid we collected stickers. Then we snuck into our camp's storage and discovered rolls on rolls of stickers and their value immediately crashed.
It's good to learn about inflation at 7.

Bitcoin will get to 100,000. It could be by 2018 at this rate! But, and this is a big BUT, the futures coming in two days is not long only. Nobody knows what impact we will see but can be very volatile. Be ready. #BitcoinFutures

I feel like I'm the last person to know what the price of bitcoin is currently. I think that's a good thing.
