A recent video surfaced of Bitcoin Core/Blockstream developer Luke Dashjr answering an interview question of why he was interested in Bitcoin to begin with. Spoiler alert: he doesn’t really have an answer. This video has caused quite a stir in the Bitcoin community, with one side chastising his inability to answer the question while the other side wonders why it matters. I don’t care much for “gotcha” politics and journalism, or Bitcoin’s civil war, but I will say this: that question should be absolutely easy to answer, and the inability to do so is worrying. I know exactly what turned me on to Bitcoin. Let me tell you.
