After a bit of a break from the Bitcoin world, former Bitcoin Core lead maintainer Gavin Andresen recently re-emerged on an episode of The Bitcoin Podcast. In one of his first public appearances since publicly backing Craig Wright as the creator of Bitcoin, Andresen discussed a variety of topics related to the current state of the Bitcoin ecosystem.

One of the more interesting segments of the interview had to do with further adoption of bitcoin as a currency. When asked to comment on this topic, Andresen responded, “The big problem with massive adoption is this chicken and egg problem of: How do people earn bitcoin?”

If I need input from a gullible developer with a poor sense of character judgement -- I'll email him.

Who the fuck listens to Gavin anymore, ... XT Fanboys? Mike Hearn apologists? R3 Consortium flacks?

The only real roadblock with Bitcoin is when developers go rogue and start getting delusions of grandeur.

It is better to burn out, than to fade away.

Ok, We will explain it slowly to him... Use BitPay or any other third party service to do the conversion back and forth into fiat, if you are a

fiat fanboy. We prefer to stay in Bitcoin, but unfortunately people used the fiat system for 100s of years, and it is still forced on people by

their governments... so this is not a flaw or roadblock created by Bitcoin, but rather a flaw or roadblock caused by the fiat system.  Roll Eyes
