I would prefer to mail puttitout $10 each month or $120 each year. Or maybe a bank transfer. I suppose I am just old school but I imagine it is easier for me to lose a few percent purchasing Swiss currency and mailing it to him or bank transfer to him rather than any crypto.

The only parts of crypto that have to be hard right now are the gateways to fiat because government demands it.

Once you have it, it's really quite simple and there are very easy use wallets now.

Securing large amounts can be more difficult, but most people wouldn't even attempt to store such large amounts of wealth in any other form on their own.

Cryptocurrency has the potential to be way more secure and easy to use than any other form of banking system currently known, but significant effort into making things easy to use hasn't happened until more recently.

I entirely support your words. I have nothing to go against them but it sucked when my 1.08 bitcoins disappeared when instawallet went down.

Remember silkroad? Had 0.2 bitcoins in there too.

Those numbers are here and there but why trust crypto? I don't think you know that a government can completely censor or shut down the internet. I am curious why you think crypto is more secure and easy than any other form of banking system. Let's pretend that USA Walmart could not accept US currency in the United States. Tell me, what do you think would happen. So let's pretend that all any server that can be accessed in the world stopped processing bitcoin transactions.......

We know that internet is censored in a major country like China. We know that censorship is coming towards us, why crypto?

I hear ya! What do you do when your only source of income is Social Security direct deposited into an old fashion bank account? I didnt understand 50% of the lingo that VOAT just used trying to explain this. It's kind of scary for us oldsters much as it was when paper currency was introduced as a substitute for coins - except I'm not that old!

hey @puttitout i hope you get raped and murdered for what you've done to speech here on voat. you're a 2-bit spez wannabe takeover shill for militant criminal sjws.

puttitout has:

  • removed CCP manually from multiple users' accounts after claiming they never mess with users' CCP

  • promised to not ban more users until clarifications on the bans were made transparent. never made clarifications; has banned hundreds of accounts since that promise.

  • manipulated the userbase in a witch hunt against a user, lied to the userbase about that user, and took punative action against many users, without basis or cause, simply to silence dissent.

  • coded censorship - - hard censorship - - into voat

  • supported and protected criminals

  • again, and i can't stress this enough: repeatedly lied to the userbase, and repeatedly got caught lying to the userbase

source: my lowest rated comment has all the sources.


megalist of censorship on voat:
