Marty's Ƀent Issue #655: In defense of assholes Nice people looking to "do good things" should be met with heavy skepticism. They trend to ruin good things. Marty's Ƀent Issue #654: POWSWAP, REAL DeFi Truly smart contracts and DeFi brought to Bitcoin. Done correctly with minimalist design that doesn't rely on a 3rd party oracle. Bitcoin is the oracle. The haters are in disbelief!
