Nobody Cares Which Crypto You Vote For

It’s Presidential election season again, and as always Nobody is going to end the wars, Nobody is going to fix the economy, and Nobody cares about you. So, once again, Bitcoin Not Bombs is endorsing Nobody for president. In addition, polls now show that Nobody cares which cryptocurrency you vote for. So, you can stop asking us what we think about Bitcoin vs. Bitcoin Cash, because now we’re giving the opportunity to vote with your crypto. If you’re going to vote, vote with your wallet, and if you’re going to vote with your wallet, make it a crypto wallet. That ratty old leather bill fold you’re hanging on to is just sooo… 2016.

For most, the Great Debate began on Armistice Day, 2017, but here at Bitcoin Not Bombs we never saw any reason to take a side. The reason is simple, whether you’re a Bitcoin Maximalist, or a BitcoinCash Minarchist, or even a Dogecoin Dominionist, if you’re not using War Dollars, you’re not funding the war machine. Money is money because both parties agree to the medium of exchange, not because Uncle Vader takes a cut. Meaning, if you’re using any state-free currency, you’re not supporting government forced fiat and the violence that backs it. Here at Bitcoin Not Bombs we say, let a million cryptocurrencies bloom. A truly free market economy is decentralized, and free to take a different direction at any time. Let every individual make their own decision what kind of money they want and why. In the open-source world of cryptocurrency, a fork is a feature, not a bug.  

But that’s not the goal of our Cyber Monday campaign. In fact, this may be The Most Important Election In Cryptocurrency History™.  With your help we can finally answer the most important question facing the cryptocurrency community today: What color is Bitcoin anyway? 

From now until Bitcoin Black Friday (November 27, 2020) the Bitcoin Not Bombs store is offering our new 2020 Bomber design, for the first time, in both Orange and Green. That way you can cast your ballots, and let us know which color you support. At midnight on Bitcoin Black Friday we will tally the votes, and the payment methods used, certify the results, and announce the official winner of the 2020 crypto wallet election. Once the winning color is sworn in, we’ll be launching a variety of exclusive new products, available only in the color elect. The inauguration will be on Cyber Monday (November 30, 2020), with the launch of the new products. 

Your participation in our crypto demockery is more vital than ever as we fly the world’s first decentralized aircraft into the future. 

Crypto Details and shop specifics.

Update: 10/21 The shirts are now shipping internationally to Most of Europe, Australia, Mexico, Canada and Japan.

While the campaign shirts are currently only for sale in the US, we are looking into international shipping options and intend to make this one of many firsts in the realm of international voting.

The Bitcoin Not Bombs shop currently accepts Bitcoin, Bitcoin Cash and War Dollars in the form of major credit cards, but we look forward to providing more options in the future. 

So, vote early, and vote often, because Nobody cares which crypto you vote for.

You can lead a horse to two factor…

… But you can’t take away their false sense of security.

With the news of recent thefts in the bitcoin community it’s important to recognize who is truly at fault: the thieves themselves. That said, the news released today by Davi Barker about the theft of ShinyBadges.com’s Porcfest funds is a good opportunity to remind people about the best security practices available.

Two-factor authentication is an important tool to understand and properly implement for your bitcoin wallets and your email accounts. But as seen in the case of Fr33 Aid and Nourishing Liberty, two-factor authentication isn’t always enough. Please do not rely on two-factor as the only way to secure your bitcoins. Learn how to create and store offline wallets and diversify your funds on multiple accounts, wallets and cold storage options. For some tutorials about creating offline wallets, Please see:

To be completely clear, no funds managed by Bitcoin Not Bombs have gone missing. Bitcoin Not Bombs takes bitcoin security very seriously, not only for our clients but on behalf of those who would accept bitcoin donations based on our example. Despite the robbery of his ShinyBadges wallet, Davi made good on all of his arrangements with vendors and contractors, including Bitcoin Not Bombs. The fact that this was no small amount, and the speed with which he honored these commitments despite his loss, are a testament to Davi’s character and one of the reasons I’m happy to have him as both a partner and a friend.
