This is episode 210 of You, Me, and BTC – your liberty and Bitcoin podcast.
Look, we're not all perfect. We love Bitcoin, but sometimes it's just too fat for us. And those hot altcoins won't stop flirting with us. It's a fatal attraction that can wreck even the strongest relationships.
But seriously, that's exactly what happened to me this week. Bitcoin wanted $14 from me and I'd had enough. For too long, this bloated crypto has been taking and taking from me. I decided enough is enough, so I used an alt.
And it was great. So great, in fact, that I later used another alt.
What the heck does all this mean? Is it a sign that Bitcoin will soon go the way of MySpace? How has the Bitcoin price been rising so fast in the midst of all this mempool carnage? Tune in for our thoughts on all that at tons more.
Also in this episode: We'll chat about a New York Times journalist who rejected crypto years ago and has since done a complete 180. He now understands Bitcoin's potential and wrote about everything he got wrong.
