#Bitcoin is only worth a little more than half of what the U.S. government created out of thin air in a matter of weeks.
We are still SO early.
Agreed, the shareholders letter is well worth a read, Røkke has clearly done his research and 'gets it'. This thread is a great break down of the key points and the letter is also linked at the end.
1/ The Aker shareholder letter from Kjell Inge Røkke is remarkable.
Having worked in Norway since 2008, IMO this is a major step towards more Scandinavian Bitcoin discussion + adoption.
Here's a 🧵 on the letter's unexpecte…
Norwegian energy giant Aker forms bitcoin unit, Seetee, funded with $58 million. It will invest in bitcoin as its treasury asset, invest in bitcoin projects and companies, and set up bitcoin mining operations.
For all my “#Bitcoin mining boils oceans” people out there:
Ladies & Gentleman, we got another corporation that puts 1,170 #Bitcoin on it's treasury balance alongside with more investment into BTC mining partnering with @Blockstream and further investments into the ecosystem.
Welcome @akersolutions and it's subsidiary @Seetee_io
Exactly! Including your bank acct. no doubt.
It's so weird when people pull out the "but what if the electrical grid goes down?" card when arguing against #Bitcoin, as if everything else in society, from the internet, to air travel, to the food supply wouldn't be totally fucked as well.
100%. In fact I'd like to be left alone and allowed to make all decisions about what medical services I use.
Trying to argue that case to most of my fellow Brits is basically seen as a thought crime at this stage though.
No lockdowns, no restrictions, no mask mandates, no travel bans, no mandatory vaccines, no vaccine passports.
Private property rights, and people are free to make their own decisions.
Selling #Bitcoin and trying to buy back in cheaper is like getting off a train and trying to outrun it to the next station.

Pro tip: no heroes. You can give respect where respect is due without needing to put people up on pedestals.
LOL. All your heroes turn to sell outs.
It's because they value $ over #Bitcoin.
