Reddit Roundup – June 2020 1

Ladies and gentlemen, we bring you the first ever edition of Reddit Roundup by Nik and Flip of Bitcoin Magazine!

This contains 50 links to most of the best quality content that was uploaded to Reddit for this month. Most links come from the popular r/bitcoin, but we also retrieved posts from other one as well such as r/BitcoinMining.

In this roundup there are 10 different categories each link falls under, and the categories are: Privacy, Adoption, Development, Security, Mining, Business, Education, Regulation & Politics, Archaeology (Financial Incumbents), and last but not least Memes, Fun, And Other. 

Big shoutout to Sam Wouter, creator of BitcoinSnippets. From October 2016 to October 2019, he was creating these monthly link summaries to help everyone keep up to date with Bitcoin. He’s kept adding to his plate and has less time to put these together, so we decided to pick up the torch where he left off.


While the price was absolutely stagnant this month, the Bitcoin builders have been moving faster than ever.

It reminds me of the quote by Bill Gates who said “most people overestimate what they can do in a year and underestimate what they can do in ten years”. In real-time, things can seem slow, but over time they happening extraordinarily fast.

Two of our favorite highlights from this month were seeing over $300,000 in bitcoin grants being raised to support open source development and seeing bitcoin out-perform the price of gold by 100% so far this year.

We also had protagonists from the antiquated financial system flip flop and bend the knee to Bitcoin. Shark Tank billionaire Mark Cuban has been very vocal on Twitter about his disinterest in Bitcoin, then decided to backtrack. Now he’s recommending people to “put 10% of their money into Bitcoin”. How ironic considering all the hate he’s given Bitcoin in the past.

Also, it was revealed this month that US president Donald Trump has ordered Steve Mnuchin to “go after Bitcoin” to try and destroy or stop it in any way possible. Unfortunately for orange man, orange coin has an impenetrable defense of nodes and miners all around the globe, outside of the reach of the US government. 

So without any further ado, here is the round up for this past month, enjoy!
