What’s Your 20, BitCoin?

A Potentially Heartbreaking Timeline if you don’t expect it

The following timeline-of-success was written in an ironic email on August 15, 2022 to cheer up [0: in the words of Notorious B.I.G.], “all the [lads] in the [BitCoin] struggle, you know what I’m sayin’? It’s all good baby, baby. Ahh…”

It’s also a timeline worth viddying when having one of those days which seems like you, your product, or just BSV adoption in general is moving backwards or in wicked slow motion. If we pan out very far, BitCoin adoption will look like an “S-curve” [1] which is half exponential and half logarithmic, but panned up close, it looks like a price chart for a stock, with spikes and peaks and valleys every second, minute, week, month, and year of the decade.


Email is invented. I was born (I’m 51 for reference). Nixon “nixes” the gold standard. What a year. I’ve always felt very tied to both of these events


“TCP” (Transmission Control Program) is released by Vint Cerf & Mr. Kahn


“IP” (Internet Protocol) joins TCP in version 3 of TCP. “TCP/IP”

I watch “Convoy” and revel in the 1970s CB-lingo phrases:

‘Keep on Truckin’


‘What’s your twenty?’

‘Keep on Truckin’ expression precedes the “Convoy” movie & by that time Steve McQueen, the “the coolest goddam mother-f-er on the silver screen” has already “fucked Allie McGraw”. [2]


IPv4” begins.

Matthew Broderick “breaks the internet” for the first time, by hacking into the US Military’s Nuclear Missile Defense system in “War Games.” (it’s important you watch the clip) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AByemfK_qD4


Matthew Broderick “breaks the internet” again, by hacking his “times tardy” number from 9 to 2 on his high school principal’s computer in “Ferris Bueller’s Day Offhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OSRigsskFR4

Thankfully REAL BitCoin is already well past 30,000 users, as we can see from Money Button user numbers, Twetch user numbers, and HandCash users reported. [3]

It is at this point, you acknowledge the cold hard fact that Matthew Broderick invented the internet, not Al Gore.
