Wow this Bitcoin thing is pretty cool, I'm gonna buy drugs on silk road
Still think the tech is revolutionary, but now I also made a lot of money on this. Altcoins appear but don't see the point, they are basically just clones of BTC.
Finally some interesting altcoins appear. Especially smart contract platforms are very promising, enabling use cases that Bitcoin simply cannot do. Not to mention that the Bitcoin community has been kinda cringe recently with the big vs small blocker war.
Okay, after years of experience it's obvious that Ethereum is simply a much better chain than Bitcoin. Far more features with negligible tradeoffs. After the merge it will be far more efficient too. I wonder why more Bitcoiners don't see it. Still use other chains such as BTC, but less and less because there's really no point.
Only use Ethereum now. In fact, I now have come to see that Bitcoin is actually objectively bad, with its extremely harmful mining and toxic maxi community. The situation is far worse than I previously thought, to the point where I'm almost ashamed of myself that I didn't realize this sooner.
