Howdy, folks 🤠
Not saying I'm nodding or shaking my head at any particular "Hot take" of his, but in my humble opinion, they come off kinda cringe-worthy, and that indirectly reflects on Bitcoin too.
He's obviously not the spokesperson for Bitcoin, but with his book's popularity, he's got a voice and has presented himself as a leading academic.
Sometimes, I stumble upon his posts and think, "Whaaa? Dude, chill, you're in the big leagues now. This is so unbecoming!"
I'm all for folks having opinions, but when a bigwig starts Twitter fefor no reason...
I just don't get it.
Maybe he thinks hot takes and stirring the pot will boost his follower count (it's the Trump-era playbook), but when you're building the Bitcoin community... 😒😖
There are a few other Bitcoin personalities doing this dance too.
Take Mark Cuban, for instance. He's got opinions, but he serves 'em up with a side of grace and politeness. And The Rock? He's another champ at this.
