Indeed impossible to prove. But I still maintain that going through the cycle of doing a transaction out of your cold storage is of particular value significance, even if you don't spend it. It allows you, for a moment, to truly experience Bitcoin's optionality.

Every move of coins realizes value, even if it's your own coins. It's a psychological marker because you could have sold.

Welcome! My suggestion for people with a bit more financial means would be: consider going to therapy to dig into the origins of the inner critic.

Dale Carnegie's "How to Win Friends ..." comes to mind, as well as "Think and Grow Rich". For me the most important part of absorbing (audio)books was to develop a positive inner critic, so that I could start inhabiting an optimism about the direction of my skills & life.

You'll find out soon enough when you have it ;-) Again, my disagreement is mostly with the language of the dialogue rather than with the content of the arguments.

To illustrate, see this thread. People are afraid to get mobbed for having "the wrong opinion".

Perhaps Neil is talking about core dev culture, and not so much about what we're seeing in BTC at large. About the latter, I personally don't identify with most of the current tone of the Bitcoin debate. (Not content, tone.)

Good point. I may have slipped into group think here.

Personally I recoil from cynicism and confrontationalism, and much prefer empathy and conflict avoidance. I could be misunderstanding Neil, but the fact that the crypto space has bad actors is not an excuse for bullying behavior.

It still amazes me that I'm invited to speak on popular podcasts and conferences. Goes to show that perseverance can pay off - I used to be a dreadful public speaker with stomach-churning stage fright.
