I gave Andreas 0.003 and I'm not gonna lie, feeling like I threw a raindrop into a swimming pool haha. Glad he is getting paid.
“On 6 December 2017, unsolicited donations of over 100 bitcoins were sent to Antonopoulos by over a thousand followers of his work, after Roger Ver publicly derided Antonopoulos' investment choices on Twitter.“
But without your raindrop that pool would not be quite as full 😊
What if this is him just moving his Bitcoin to his public account so he can cash in
If BTC reaches $50k, I will eat your balls.
Calm down, Mr. McAfee.
still give him props his opsec level is 11 then
I'm actually a she!
Wow, Ver has woken the sleeping giant, the Bitcoin community.
Looking at how things unfolded, I wish Roger Ver shamed me too on twitter. With my contributions to the Bitcoin world compared to AA, I expect a total of 2 satoshis above minimum transfer fee.
37 “Do not judge, and you will not be judged. Do not condemn, and you will not be condemned. Forgive, and you will be forgiven. 38 Give, and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over, will be poured into your lap. For with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.”
39 He also told them this parable: “Can the blind lead the blind? Will they not both fall into a pit? 40 The student is not above the teacher, but everyone who is fully trained will be like their teacher.
41 “Why do you look at the speck of sawdust in your brother’s eye and pay no attention to the plank in your own eye? 42 How can you say to your brother, ‘Brother, let me take the speck out of your eye,’ when you yourself fail to see the plank in your own eye? You hypocrite, first take the plank out of your eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck from your brother’s eye.

Looks good, nice work
He is not wrong, he is just an asshole.
Thanks AA and anonymous donor! Makes me so very very happy.

That would make him worth $1.33MM, or just above a million after short-term capital gains taxes (depending on where you live).
In most western places, that's enough to buy a very nice house.
Hell, if BTC goes past $20k-$25k, it's almost enough to retire. If BTC reaches $50k, he's set for life, with a house and everything.
Damn, I wish Roger Ver would pick on me too :(
whoa! that's... crazy. the dude took a few days off to "process"
he's probably overwhelmed right now.
this is nuts! happy for the dude.
37 + 42
Maybe it was SATOSHI himself!!!! ..B-)
And he deserves every penny for the amount that man has put forth for this community.
I'll eat your balls too, buddy.
I can't stand the guy, what he said was true yes, but he essentially poor shamed Andreas. Dick move all around.
If you have 45 million because this guy dedicated his life to educating the world, and thus helping you hit 45 mil, you give the dude a million.
Also, the news will probably turbocharge the price to make it actually profitable for however much they have left.
u mean an extra 5? for a TOTAL of 42? am i reading this wrong?
I gave him 0.005! It's not a lot, but it feels amazing to be part of this phenomenon. It's unreal!
1% of all bitcoin has been through this address ( 1NDyJtNTjmwk5xPNhjgAMu4HDHigtobu1s) which is linked, if you click far enough, to whoever gave andreas all that btc.
hey its me ur Andreas
Expect Andreas to do something valuable with this. THIS IS THE EXACT KIND OF WEALTH DISTRIBUTION I EXPECTED WE WOULD SEE ONE DAY
Just a reminder that Andreas raised a lot of money for Dorian Nakamoto as an apology from the Bitcoin community for Newsweek's rash reporting. He deserves every satoshi.
wtf this guy just gave him over a million dollars
Process is code for hookers and blow. He’s earned it.
Has to be an exchange which was the original.theory.
We are all ball eaters on this blessed day 🙏
I'm not a fan of Ver, but people are acting like he engaged some unspeakable evil in his tweet to Andreas. Ver told an uncomfortable truth. It wasn't nice, but it was true. Andreas basically acknowledged as much in his message.
Don't forget to put that tear in the pool too.
and just like that they made him a millionaire
He built this community. Many of us are here because of his talks.
start shilling harder or he'll fire you
Ι hope he doesn't sell everything. Selling half would be okay, but he needs to keep some bitcoins.
It'd be a good troll to sell them all
Number of donations is honestly probably more meaningful to Andreas than the total value; assuming most only donate once, every tx is another person that you've impacted through your work
Sorry, why are people giving him Bitcoin?
Someone changed “derided” to “complimented”
This was Ver plan all along. /s
Holy shit, I first thought it was just additional 5 btc, but you're right, it's 42 btc more! Awesome! So happy for Andreas. Tx: https://blockchain.info/tx/381215c6b6cc8fb280b6767bc325ff938ced89347670ff14bd2ea1f3a1ca6de3
