Imagine you are standing alone right in front of the goal of the other team and some idiot from the other team throws the ball right into your hands.

I have been in strategic corporate communications for two decades and if last week you would have asked me as a PR-guy what the best thing would be to happen to Bitcoin to show people what advantages Bitcoin has, I would probably have answered "the first country to start confiscating people's savings." I have to admit I could not have imagined that this could happen so fast.

This is just one rare great opportunity to trigger interest in Bitcoin. Just spread the meme 'Bitcoin user not affected'. People are talking about this everywhere and realise, that what happens in Cyprus can happen in their own country everywhere and anytime and that when it happens, it will be done without any notice and without any chance to withdraw their funds beforehand.

It is a point where you don't have to go through all the difficulties trying to explain crypto-currency alltogether, it is just enough to mention that the only people who escaped this plunder are the ones who keep their wealth in unseizable and unconfiscatable currency, namely Bitcoin. That alone will do to make people go "Wait, what!?" and go out to try to find out more.

So spread the word in any discussion with friends and workmates and plaster the comment-sections of news-sites reporting about this or on your favorite precious metals-forum or wherever.

I am reposting this image from the other thread on Cyprus, credits go out to whoever made it.



So carpe diem and spread the word!

Joe

I guess we'll see this meme more and more over the coming months and years looking at the global financial markets and the economy in Europe and the US. Especially with governments looking into your financials more than ever...

Everyone is just going to want to kick that guy in the teeth, it isn't good advertising imo.

Also, being "unaffected" isn't really anyone's goal. My dead great grandmother was not affected by the Cyprus robbery either.

Yeah to be honest it looks like "Ha ha! Those idiots just got robbed!". I guess we could go on with this "Bitcoin user not affected" meme but using different images depending on the event.

Diversifying could be a good thing, not putting everything in bitcoin.

Please: that was the pic that was around and that's why I used it.

It does not matter if you use that pic or another or none at all, this is about

THE FACT THAT NO GOVERNMENT CAN SEIZE BITCOINS IF PROPERLY SECURED.

The advantage of a currency not being confiscatable has so far been an abstract and theoretical issue to most people in the western world. They would usually see that as spreading FUD by paranoid conspiracy folks.

THIS HAS CHANGED NOW, as it is happening in front of the world for everybody to see, thus the actual possibility of this to happen enters the reality of populations in so called democratic countries.

We (the Bitcoin community) are not a corporation with a Chief Corporate Identity Officer who decides what pic or claim to use, use anything that suites you and that you feel comfortable with.

The community has communicated this property of Bitcoin as one of it's major advantages over other kinds of money for years now but to actually make people understand what that means in real life and for their own lifes:

now's the fuckin' time.


That's at least my 5 Satoshis.

I like that bitcoin meme, the face is epic, because it is so true. It express what a bitcoin user think. A government steal money from people saving? Ahahah, i have bitcoin, they can't steal them.

Ok, so the face looks like ignorant nerd? Is that the message you want to transport?

I actually just shared this meme as it is to be taken with a grain of salt but my facebook friends will have that grain of salt.

That Guy (as in Don't Be That Guy) is the Alfred E. Newman of the Bitcoin milieu. "What, me worry?"

Any significantly advanced cryptocurrency is indistinguishable from Ponzi Tulips.
