By his join date it was obv. he's been banned before (probably in LVL).

Just salty he was actually someone that BTC was useful for and he still sold way too early in the mega bull.

If he cleaned the salt from his eyes he'd see that he could get back in @ 70% discount to ATH and rolllllllllllllll onnnnnnnn

Decentralized. Not a pro for everyone. For nerds probably, but for regular people not. I'm glad someone else is looking after my money, I might lose it on my own. A bank has never lost any of my money, but I have lost ripples which I cannot get back in any way. And a lot of people have done the same. There are millions of bitcoin lost forever, that is quite a big percentage gone. So decentralized is rather a con than a pro.

How is current price a pro? It just isnt. Or that it was established in 09?

And many others. Just a bad overall.
If you think XRP and BTC are in the same ballpark you need to reset your views on crypto and start from ground zero.

You also need to study basic economics (supply & demand) if you can't see why all those lost BTC is a monsterous bullish feature.

It's like, part of what makes a Vermeer painting valuable is the scarcity of supply, but there are a lot of equivalently scarce objects which are not valuable. The supply side of the equation is important, but so is demand, and demand is driven by more than scarcity.
Most scarce things that have ever existed in human history have been easy to take from another human (my weapon bigger than your weapon).
BTC is not easy to take from someone (assuming you aren't bragging about owning some in public).

And yet people seem to be having them taken from them, or losing them, right and left.

RIP bgrif

You either die a nocoiner or live long enough to see your bags get too heavy.
