    I get what you're saying but that can't be an excuse anymore

    I found out about bitcoin on this very forum in 2013 after Silk Road. It was $300 at the time. Bitcoin wasn't some huge secret. Most nikkas just didn't understand or believe in it

    Information belongs to the world now. Its knowing where the info is and what we decide to focus on that matters

    Same as nikkas that complain about seeing thots all day on social media

    The internet exposes because 95% of the time it's giving you exactly what you were looking for

    And he didn't do it by himself. Microsoft was a team of like minded and skilled individuals that formed the collective Microsoft.

    People need to read Outliers by Malcolm Gladwell. He goes into all aspects of this very thing you're asking me.

    Steve Jobs apparently didn’t Even know how to unbox the Apple desktop and plug it in according to his daughter she said she realized that day he wasn’t the brains behind the tech :mjlol:

    a lot of these rich dudes just take credit for other peoples work. But vitalik is actually extremely bright.

    No one builds anything big by themselves. That’s a straw man breh. The job of a CEO is to hire, organize and lead a team of people and that’s exactly what he did

    Four years ago, it was still unaffordable unless you were buying fractions of a coin. Who has thousands to drop on ONE coin? By the end of the Summer, it had crossed the 5K mark and before the end of the year, it was in the five digits.

    People were talking about it on Niketalk as early as 2011. It just wasn't easy to buy. The early adopters ate. It's ok to miss out on a boat. I missed out on this, ETH and Doge surprisingly. I bought into XRP which is proving to be bullshyt after being speculated to be the next big thing.

    Yeah thats the reason I still don't feel like I "missed out"....cuz of what you just described. It's all still pretty random and nobody can explain why the prices are rising and falling other than "cuz people are buying it". But I still salute everyone who made some money...

    I did that to lead you to a specific point. People are formed and created by their environment, interactions and reinforcements.

    Also, those same kids did build a Microsoft but got put into courts by Microsoft and tossed into the bushes. It takes more than skill, business acumen and ruthlessness. The 90s that's all Microsoft was doing, absorbing tech and putting people out of business.

    Genius is a creation.

    We're saying the same thing in different ways really.

    That was a symbiotic relationship. Wozniak didn't have a lick of confidence in his work. That's where Jobs came in.

    Yeah I didn’t know much about Jobs history other then the fake created image given to him in the media and pop culture. But hearing his daughter saying he didn’t even know how to unbox the Apple computer was quite hilarious when people treat him like a tech revolutionary.
