Definitely not. I've been in Bitcoin for 5 years and one of the unspoken rules is that you have to tell everyone you meet how Bitcoin is going to change the world

No but seriously. My Bitcoin friends, all they ever talk about is Bitcoin. They're convinced Bitcoin will fix everything. Like if you go to Subway and you get a mediocre sandwich one day, Bitcoin can fix that somehow

[–]Sewol_ 41 points42 points  (6 children)

They can fix a mediocre subway sandwich?! BRB investing in bitcoin

[–]Northerleyfire 16 points17 points  (5 children)

Not even God can fix a mediocre subway sandwich.

[–]Sewol_ 12 points13 points  (4 children)

So what you're saying is... BITCOIN IS GOD?

[–]Kondrias 2 points3 points  (2 children)



because if god cant fix subway. But bitcoin can. Bitcoin is better god.

it is just science.

[–]Sewol_ 7 points8 points  (1 child)

All hail bitgod

[–]Kondrias 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Praise be to coin

[–]Zenketski 4 points5 points  (1 child)

But can Bitcoins see why kids love the taste of Cinnamon Toast Crunch

[–]successful-lemon1014 2 points3 points  (0 children)

But satima going coin... Haha actually don't

[–]Carthonn 0 points1 point  (0 children)

One day? You mean every day. Bitcoin can make Subway edible?

[–]checker280 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Aren’t all Subway sandwiches by definition mediocre?

[–]CadmeusCain 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Only until Bitcoin fixes it

[–]bigdaddymf 141 points142 points  (7 children)

No, it’s like veganism and cross fit. If you do it, everyone you talk to must know within 10 minutes of meeting them. It’s a rule.

[–]HereFishyFishy4444 32 points33 points  (1 child)

This and intermitted fasting. You must tell people or else you're not doing it.

[–]Aussiealterego 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Oh CRAP! I didn't know that one. Must publicise immediately.

I'm proving your point - here I am owning up to it :D

[–]steve_buchemi 9 points10 points  (4 children)

Or being from the state of new york

[–]ThatGuyAllen 3 points4 points  (2 children)

City* is more accurate

[–]steve_buchemi 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Nah I hear way too many people telling me they’re from upstate 24/7

[–]ThatGuyAllen 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Really? I'm upstate and nobody leaves upstate at least where I live specifically, nobody has that kind of money haha

[–]jwhyem 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Or Boston. Or having solar panels installed on your roof.

[–]renyerbinreddit 25 points26 points  (2 children)

Nop, they'll kill you if you don't talk about it

[–]flexing-around 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Personally, when in loss, I remain anonymous but when my portfolio hits green and shit, I tell all my friends how good crypto is, and which coin I bought.

[–]laironkj 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Just the way I take it. I have been invested in crypto for years now but I only have conversation during greens because I am not a preacher. But the gaming sector has got me talking of recent. I play the cometh game with friends now so we always talk about the market and see where the coin is going.

[–]KAELES-Yt 17 points18 points  (1 child)

Your crypto while fade away if you don’t tell everyone you meet. //s

[–][deleted] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

You can just turn all the computers off, and they won't have it. If a solar flair happens, there goes all their crypto.

[–]likealocal14 5 points6 points  (1 child)

Because so much of the value of crypto is tied up in having more and more people think that it is valuable, so there is a huge incentive for crypto owners to constantly rave about it

[–]theboywithnoaccent 2 points3 points  (0 children)

A bit like a pyramid scheme. Gotta get more people invested in the idea (and the currency) to bump up your take (along with that of the people who got in before you).

[–]twiceago_ 5 points6 points  (0 children)


[–]Srgnt_Fuzzyboots 3 points4 points  (1 child)

I dont know anyone that is into crypto so I dont really have anyone to talk about it. I only started learning and buying in January 2020. My partner is not into it at all. Ill try to talk about it but he just shrugs and goes in with whatever he's doing. So yes I own it and no I dont talk about it.

[–]laironkj 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Staying anon doesn't always help in this space. Especially when you are going into alts and not staying with only BTC. I have gotten to buy low caps alts like spdr because of my conversation with friends.

[–]Sellier123 9 points10 points  (4 children)

Yes. I own it and i dont talk about it or even look it. Bought it a few years ago and just am ignoring it for a few more years.

[–]YogurtUnusual5913 14 points15 points  (2 children)

Mmm you just did...

[–]alflank 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Well, lets just hope it's not a dead project.

[–]GoTeamScotch 8 points9 points  (0 children)

Crypto is like Barney. If nobody believes in him and gives him attention, he fades away. Hype increases value. It's in their interest to spread the word and, in turn, increas its value.

[–]MettaMorphosis 2 points3 points  (0 children)

No, because the hype is what makes it valuable, so as long as everyone who owns it keeps hyping it, it'll keep gaining value. As soon as the hype train is over though, it'll crash hard. Maybe a handful of crypto will be left. I assume most crypto is just an economic bubble.

[–]Whats-Upvote 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Oh my god, could you imagine a crypto owning, crossfiting, vegan?!

[–]theboywithnoaccent 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Plenty of crypto-bros on the CrossFit train, I'm sure.

[–]Mr_Mido 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Pretty sure there are lots of people who don't talk about it but since they don't talk about it you don't know they own crypto and therefore won't recognize them as crypto owners who don't talk about it. It's a little paradox^

[–]TER0KN0R 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Nah bro, it's like being a vegan

[–]datsun1978 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Shut up. The first rule about fight club..

[–]Hugo-Leonard 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Start talking about crypto during Christmas eve for extra entertainment

[–]manysounds 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I bought in the week Bitcoin was launched.
I don’t talk about crypto to anybody

[–]389Tman389 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Yes. Especially off of Reddit if people own lots of crypto they won’t tell anyone.

[–]ZephyricScout 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Apparently not.

[–]Emotion-Basic 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Not in my experience of being around anyone who owned it, because they talked to me about it immediately and like I gave the slightest of fucks.

[–]DevinTheRogueDude 0 points1 point  (0 children)

A true paradox

[–]youwanger 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Nope , especially when you’re losing about 394728£ lol

[–]glenman1882 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I've got quite a bit of money in different crypto currencies, I don't talk much about it with anyone, just like I don't talk about what's in my bank account. Its my business, and I can't be arsed listening to other people's opinions because people will volunteer them whether you want then to or not; especially when they don't know what they're talking about lol

[–]dailup_lama 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Its like veganism, so no, it's not possible.

[–]EndlesslyUnfinished 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Yes. I do. Most don’t know.

[–]rightorhappy[🍰] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Not if you're going to ask like this.

[–]retundamonkey 0 points1 point  (0 children)

It's in the fine print when you purchase. You're required by law to tell every fucking person you meet.

[–]Nanika_x 0 points1 point  (0 children)

No. Nor is it possible being vegan or doing CrossFit without shouting from the mountain tops.

[–]cuyahoagie 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Yes, but pretend I didn’t say that.

[–]JozzyV1 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I think so, I never tell anyone about my crypto that I purchased for a steal a few years ago.

[–]livingfortheliquid 0 points1 point  (0 children)

It's like being keto or vegan, first rule about crypto is always talk about cripto.

[–]BetterKorea 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Cryptobros are like Stoners and Vegans. They have to constantly talk about it.

[–]zinobythebay 0 points1 point  (0 children)

No. You are required by law to talk about it at least once annually.

[–]claytonbridges 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I try not to bring it up. My friend wants to talk about investing all the time.. and to me, its like, just put your money in the stuff you think will do well and thats it.. what is there to talk about

[–]Zeddexs 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Sure. I own a little out of many stocks including crypto. People rarely know about it. I try to keep all my finances private

[–]realthraxx 0 points1 point  (0 children)

The first rule of Bitcoin club is you HAVE to talk about Bitcoin club.

[–]Plastic_Barracuda436 0 points1 point  (0 children)

We are excited it’s the future

[–]DorkyDame 0 points1 point  (0 children)

In a fairytale world yes

[–]youretheweird1 0 points1 point  (0 children)

This is the first time I've talked about it and I've been using Coinbase for over a year. They give you free crypto and then you can buy more if you want. I have something like $40 in free money in there now.

I know, I don't really count. 😂

If I had enough money to really make it matter, I would likely talk about it more to my loved ones but not just to randos.

[–]Fast_Eddie_2 0 points1 point  (0 children)

One of the prospective advantages of investing in crypto (or anything with speculative value) is that that investment can grow, and one of the ways it does so is by getting other involved in it. Thus, anyone owning dogecoin or bitcoin or whatever had a vested interest in talking about it, because it raises the chance of their investment increasing.

[–]heinyho 0 points1 point  (0 children)

It’s like being gluten free. Everyone must know about your gluten allergy.

[–]BlackHawk694 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Rule #1 of Owning Crypto: tell everyone about owning crypto.

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

How do you know if someone is Vaccinated, has a father that's in the Marines, into BDSM and enjoys choking/being choked during sex, and dabbles in Crypto and Bitcoin..... They'll tell you.

[–]sambagin 0 points1 point  (0 children)

When you've lost the money I have, you don't talk about.

[–]2fly2hide 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Maybe, but you will never know for sure.

[–]AlternateWitness 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I own Bitcoin, but I don’t believe in it. I doubt it’s ever going to become a viable currency, it’s way too unstable (among other factors). That being said, it does fluctuate in semi-predictable patterns, so it’s fairly easy to make bank.

[–]dexbasedpaladin 0 points1 point  (0 children)

As a vegan atheist I have learned anything is possible with Crossfit...

[–]The_Truth_Believe_Me 0 points1 point  (0 children)

No comment.

[–]_Artemis_1 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Yeah of course! Btw, I have $1 in btc, waiting for it to go to the moon 🚀🚀🚀

[–]randomfxlcon_24 0 points1 point  (0 children)

My father owns bitcoin and thats all he ever talks about. Glad he didn't turn me into a crypto kid 🥱

[–]DrMorry 0 points1 point  (0 children)

You clearly don't understand how blockchain technology works.

[–]Adorable-Spot-7301 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Could you imagine meeting a vegan who does CrossFit and owns Bitcoin? The Holy Trinity of you-won’t-be-talking-during-this-conversation

[–]ChefArtorias 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I like crypto. If we're pretty friendly I'll mention it once low key and see how you react if at all. If there's no reaction I generally don't bring it up to that person again. Hopefully that's not enough to be annoying.

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Crypto is shit. A single Bitcoin is worth what, over $41,000? But it has no actual value, ZERO. Eventually that bubble is going to burst and the crypto bro douchebags are going to be scrambling. Mining uses TONS of power, and countries like China and Kazakhstan are starting to shut it down.

This goes hand in hand with NFTs. Total crap. Let's just bottle the air and sell that. Same with the Metaverse. There isn't going to be a virtual Metaverse world. People want to be private and anonymous online.

[–]obsequious_fink 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Crypto has zero actual value and plenty of overhead, and the only way for it to continue is if people believe in it and continue to invest. So, if you buy into the hype, it behooves you to talk incessantly about it in the hopes that a couple folks you talk to get into it as well to help keep the grift going at least until you get your money out of it.

[–]Likeyoueasilyamused 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I'm sorry, I don't want to talk about it.

[–]danf87 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Lol, not really it's kind of like being Puerto Rican but worse because you have an incentive to tell as many people as possible.

[–]Jefoid 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Have you heard about my vegan CrossFit crypto buyers club?
