‘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…

Costco issues toilet paper warning

Costco Wholesale is having trouble fulfilling toilet paper orders.

The membership-only warehouse retail chain is issuing a warning to customers that have purchased the common household item online, saying they may face delays in receiving their orders.  

“Due to increased volumes, you may see a slight delay in the processing of this order,” Costco’s customer service team said in a purchase order confirmation email viewed by FOX Business

The retailer noted that the company is “working to fulfill everything as quickly as possible” and that customers will get a follow-up email with tracking information once an order has shipped.

The warning notice comes after the company indicated that it would reinstate purchase limits at some of its store locations as customers reportedly stockpile goods once again – mimicking the early days of the COVID-19 pandemic last year.

Mark Levin smashes 1M sold for American Marxism, top 2021 book

Mark Levin smashes 1M sold for American Marxism, top 2021 book

Conservative talker Mark Levin’s record-selling new book, American Marxism has raced past the 1 million mark and is now America’s top seller despite receiving little to no attention in the establishment press.

“We are thrilled about the astounding success of American Marxism and its enormous appeal to the general public,” said Jennifer Long, deputy publisher for Threshold Editions, a division of Simon & Schuster.

Levin told Secrets on Thursday that his book has led to a movement he hopes will turn the 2022 midterm elections into a huge victory for conservatives and a rejection of President Joe Biden’s leftist policies.

“We’re running out of time. You know, there are tens of millions of people in this country who have no voice in academia, the media, Big Tech, even in politics. And we’re not going to roll over and play dead,” he said.

“This is a movement. And it’s a movement that’s not on too many radar screens from a strategic perspective,” he added.

His book tackles the Left’s attempt to rewrite U.S. history, take over American institutions, and erase conservatism.

Here’s how Threshold described it: “In American Marxism, Levin seeks to rally the American people to defend their liberty, traditions, families, and the Constitution from a counterrevolution to the American Revolution that seeks to destroy the existing civil society. Levin explains how the core elements of Marxist ideology have been uniquely tailored to and applied to American society and are now pervasive throughout the culture, forming a variety of sub-movements surrounding such issues as ‘climate change,’ ‘genderism,’ ‘critical race theory,’ etc.”

States Rationing Liquor

Why Liquor Shortages Caused By The COVID-19 Pandemic Persist In Some States

States Rationing Liquor

A fair warning for your next trip to the liquor store: Several states across the U.S. are still experiencing booze shortages related to COVID-19, and it’s unclear when supply will be able to meet demand.

Early in the pandemic, it was common to find libations low in stock after some liquor stores briefly closed amid statewide lockdowns and skyrocketing consumer demand for alcohol.

But continued reports of shortages from Vermont to New Jersey to Ohio persist more than a year later, and some states are rationing their liquor supply amid ongoing supply chain issues.

The Pennsylvania state board in charge of consumer liquor sales announced last week that it was limiting customers to two bottles of certain alcoholic beverages per day. The Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board said the purchase limit on select items — including Hennessy Cognac, Buffalo Trace bourbon and Patrón tequila — will be in place for the “foreseeable future.”
