Then why, why, WHY, if someone wants to dip their toes into Bitcoin, do we tell them to first spend a hundred hours becoming a certified Bitcoin Self Custody Expert™ before they take the first step and join the network?
Or, possibly worse, we tell them to write down a seed phrase and self-custody from day one without proper foundational understanding and readiness for the gravity and responsibility of self-custody.
If I was evil
I work for government
Give me 10M$
Bitcoin unusable for months
Nobody would know
I'd just mint infinite shitcoins on BRC20
Call it "free market"
Use the bitcoiner's narrative of censorship resistance, free market and permissionlessness against them.
