Someone said: “Accepting bitcoin is BS, too volatile, no one will be paying with BTC. It is like paying with gold instead of fiat….businesses need to start accepting stable coins, that would make much more sense and would speed up crypto mass adoption.”
Another follower posted this: “I got into btc because of the fundamentals and the fact it would benefit us all. Especially those who do not and can not have access to traditonal banking. If we sell we endanger that possibility . HOLD”
