Bitcoin is a grassroots movement, taking hold in all parts of the world, and as it begins to sink into the minds of those looking for a better form of money, it attracts people with different views, skills and motivations. Despite these differences in culture, language, in economic realities, we all agree on one thing, bitcoin is money, and it will remain immutable.
You don’t change bitcoin, bitcoin changes you, and as the orange pill begins to convert more people into believers, they begin to adopt the bitcoin culture. Bitcoiners not only have their own money, but they have their own language, their own inside jokes, and of course, bitcoin-native businesses springing up all over the planet. By having more businesses accept bitcoin for goods and services, it makes it easier for bitcoiners to realise the value they’ve been saving without the need to convert it back into filthy fiat.
By supporting bitcoin businesses, you not only encourage bitcoiners to create more economic value, but you support the circular economy and distribute sats to those willing to put in proof of work and push the bitcoin message around the world.
All aboard the BBC
Bitcoiners have a woeful reputation for being terrible sailors, unfairly plagued by all manner of unfortunate accidents. The Bad Boating Club seeks to comfort its members with small tokens of reassurance: reminders that while you might be a crap sailor, you’re probably doing something else right.
If you’re scratching your head wondering what boats have to do with bitcoin, you’re probably not deep down the rabbit hole yet and the plebs that orange pilled you need to give you a course in bitcoin boating. So for those who are not too familiar with the constant stream of satoshis being lost at sea, then let Michael Saylor give you the rundown of this very real problem bitcoiners are facing when you take on the personal responsibility to custody your funds in the hardest money ever created.
Purchase proof of work
Support a fellow pleb and bitcoin business by purchasing one of the hand-stamped messages that carry a special meaning to us plebs and carry the inside joke with you wherever you go. Flash your keyring that no one except a fellow bitcoiner would recognise, and you might catch the attention of bitcoiners out in the wild.
Pick your message, join the club.
The Bad Boating Club only accepts bitcoin as rightly they should, and you can settle your order in both on-chain bitcoin or the Lightning network with payments processed by Coincorner. The BBC ships worldwide if you enquire about it, but it primarily caters to the UK.
The BBC does offer free delivery for all orders that are delivered within the United Kingdom, so all you Brit Bitcoiners can pick up your merch and skip the physical routing fees. If you are thinking of ordering a keyring and want to skip the delivery fees, your order needs over BTC 0.001 (currently about £25).
“Wen moon“, they will drop prices accordingly. Alternatively, shipping will carry an additional fee of BTC 0.0001 (currently about £2.50)
