‘The roaring 20s are upon us and Bitcoin will be the reserve currency of the world by the end of the decade.’

We’ve reached a cultural tipping point

‘The roaring 20s are upon us and Bitcoin will be the reserve currency of the world by the end of the decade.’

FROM tftc.io

Yesterday we made you freaks aware of the fact that the team at Zebedee had begun implementing its Infuse product into the popular vidya game CS:GO. Allowing players to compete for sats in-game in a way that has only been possible for indie games created by Bitcoin believers up to this point. With eSports being a huge market these days, the slow trickle of sats into that particular arena is a big deal from a cultural perspective. The ball has begun to roll in that regards. The major effects that sats will have on that industry will be witnessed somewhere down the road from where we stand today.

If we pan the camera over to another historically massively influential industry that is professional sports, Russell Okung got the bitcoin ball rolling a year and a half ago when he proclaimed, “Pay me in Bitcoin.” on Twitter. At the time we said, “The kings of clout are beginning to show up. Slowly but surely, Bitcoin continues to ingratiate itself into our culture. Digging its roots deeper into the psyche of the masses, potentially past the point of no return.” Well, as you can see from the tweet above, Russ’ demands are finally being met as he will now be receiving half his salary in sats thanks to a partnership with Jack Maller’s Strike app. The NFL pro bowler will now be auto-dumping cuck bucks for sats that will be sent to cold storage.

Your Uncle Marty believes 2020 has just crescendo’d with a cultural tipping point in regards to Bitcoin that there is no turning back from. Throughout the year we’ve seen a wave of adoption from all different types of individuals each adding a snowflake that, combined, are about to unleash an avalanche of FOMO on the rest of the world:

  • Paul Tudor Jones announces he put 2% of his fund’s assets into bitcoin
  • Michael Saylor buys $1B+ worth of bitcoin as an inflation hedge for MicroStrategy
  • Jack Dorsey’s Square announces they are adding bitcoin to their balance sheet for the same reasons
  • The big banks and funds start setting price targets in the mid-six figures over the next few years
  • TV celebrities start asking if they should accumulate bitcoin
  • Rappers start giving away bitcoin via the Cash App + Twitter
  • Bitcoin makes its way into gaming
  • Pro athletes start getting paid in sats

The onslaught of Bitcoin in the mainstream has been absolutely relentless this year…

Fertility App Told FACEBOOK When Women Were Ovulating…

WASHINGTON WSJ —The Federal Trade Commission reached a settlement with Flo Health Inc., the developer of a widely used period and fertility-tracking app, over allegations that it improperly shared personal data with Facebook and others, including whether users were ovulating.

The data shared by Flo Health often allowed online ads to be targeted to those users, despite Flo Health’s promises that the information would be kept private, The Wall Street Journal found in a 2019 article.

The FTC’s vote on the proposed settlement was 5-0, the agency said Wednesday. The proposed settlement with the FTC, if it becomes final following public comment, would require Flo Health to obtain an independent review of its privacy practices and get users’ consent before sharing their health information, the agency said. The company also must notify consumers of the FTC charges that it shared consumers’ personal information without their consent, commissioners said.

In a statement, a Flo spokesperson said the company cooperated with the FTC, adding, “We are committed to ensuring that the privacy of our users’ personal health data is absolutely paramount.”

Tiny-house sales boom…

Tiny-house sales boom…

Source: Yahoo

  • In 2020, the tiny-house movement saw an increase in interest and a boom in sales thanks to the coronavirus pandemic. 
  • Insider spoke to experts about what they think the movement needs to achieve this year for tiny houses to become a legitimate housing option.
  • Zack Giffin, the host of “Tiny House Nation,” said the movement’s main goal in 2021 is to convince more states and municipalities to legalize tiny houses across the country.
  • To do that, experts say, the movement must market itself as a great option for singles and couples with no children, it must rebrand itself as an affordable housing option, and it must distance itself from RVs and camper vans. 

When the coronavirus pandemic swept across the country in 2020, Nick Mosley didn’t know what would happen to his tiny-house construction business. 

In March, his business, California Tiny House, was operating out of a 12,000-square-foot warehouse in Fresno, California. Mosley braced for the worst, knowing he wouldn’t be able to market his company at festivals or offer tours for the foreseeable future. 

However, rather than see a downturn, Mosley was inundated with emails and phone calls from people inquiring about tiny houses. By December, Mosley had expanded his warehouse to 22,000 square feet and hired four more staff members to meet the demand and to keep his employees safe.

It ended up being a record year for the company, which built 30 tiny houses in 2020 alone. It was a direct impact of the coronavirus, Mosley said, as new groups of people became interested in the growing movement. 

“The pandemic created a new need or created a new customer base that may not have been there previously,” he told Insider. “There are a lot of people that need backyard offices so that they can work from home but have separation from their family. There are college students that don’t want to be in dorms because they’re not socially distanced.”
