Seed investors in the early FIAT boom that would change the world forever. Newer investors call them scammers while they shill their own system
Remember when Bitcoin was welcomed as the revolution against the evil old money? Those old scoundrels with their federal reserve controlled money, their petty wars, the thieving through banking and issuing of bonds. Everything was a scam, and for what - because we weren't taking part in it.
Much the same today, every shitcoin you are not in it and it is pumping, must be a scam. The generals and heroes of blockchain turns out that they have the same tendencies as the old money. Once they got a hold of some BTC they suddenly became economic overloads, finance wizards and expert advisers.
Meanwhile the ones waiting to be liberated, the common idiots, got fucked, yet again by the same DNA of people that would stand and defend free markets, liberty, freedom and all that crap because, well, they are rich.
Nothing changes with economies or people. The same games are played over and over, but the rules changes slightly. Instead of federal reserve making a sovereign country with plutocracy over the initial hodlers, we have projects that create their own states with their own plutocratic overlords. You found yourself in the collectible and rear BTC before 2011. Well, you are in for a treat. All your expertise and rule of dominion because you drew the lucky lottery numbers.
But the BTC overlords with never admit that. Since hindsight is always 20/20 they will see themselves as visionaries and excuse any ill moves as "necessary evils for the revolution" . Now where did we see all this bullshit before?
