17 Mar Friendly reminder: Please be nice to the new wave of noobs arriving here!
I’ve noticed an insane influx of noobs here very recently, possibly because of the stimmy arriving gradually in people’s hands.
They’re asking super basic questions like “How to buy a satoshi” not realizing that it’s a Bitcoin denomination, others asking whether exchanges can go poof, how to change fees for a transaction, or whether totallynotascam.com is a scam. Others want to start a mining side gig with Bitcoin Core running on their laptop and so on and so on.
Just a friendly reminder: it’s easy to think “Wtf are you talking about? You’re about to get REKT!” (and I’ve done that so often myself). And it’s probably true that they will get REKT one day (hey, that’s how you learn!) because being able to handle Bitcoin safely definitely requires some level of crypto literacy. But that’s exactly why we are here this week! We are here to help!
Let’s be nice to them, welcome them to our great community, and teach them how to be safe, trustless, and decentralized. How to stack sats, HODL them no matter what, and live a better life… and maybe they’ll spread the word some day as well!
TL;DR: Stimmy noobs incoming! Don’t jinx it!
