    Idk but here's a tweet saying 30 minutes left on the pre-sale on 4/30/21 at 5:30pm



    4/27 saying pre-sale ends on 4/30




    Day 2 of 7 of the pre-sale




    Pre-sale ends 4/30

    "Well actually-ing" straight Nazi propaganda is not something I expected to see today.

    BAYC was inspired by Hitler to also make terrible art, it makes sense now

    Weird, looks like they knew on 4/25 that the reveal was 4/30.

    Ok thanks for the long cat user here's the Twitch stream if you wanna keep educating yourself and geek out over another video about crypto



    Of all the things posted in the video, you're really making a big deal about the least convincing evidence. And you're taken the timeline out of context. Move on to the logo and the many other reasons that are much more convincing.

    I haven't even gotten to that part of the video, had to pause and do other things. I just responded to you bc you brought it up.

    Did you even watch your video? He said @ 2:10 that it was set to reveal after 1 sale after 6pm. It wasn't set for like 500 or 1000 sales. It was literally 1 sale after 6pm on 4/30. It was 100% going to reveal on 4/30. So apparently you don't know as much as you think bc I learned all this in 15 minutes.

    *4/30 was just coincidence bc it was set to reveal after X sales

    *Yea it was set to reveal after 1 sale after 6pm on 4/30

    the former followed by the latter when he's shown to be wrong (which the video goes into detail on if PTD would have kept watching) is hilarious

    Bitcoin I can at least understood the narrative and why people buy into it so hard even if it's silly.

    Still just speculative investment system as part of an anarcho capitalist project.

    I don't see April 30th as some cryptic connection to say happy birthday to their leader.
    That date was for a pre-sale. The main mint and sale happened on May 1st, which I already posted a screenshot of.

    I don't see April 30th as their cryptic connection to say happy birthday to their leader, of all the things discussed in the articles in January or the same evidence that was posted in the video today. There are more interesting and convincing examples than the pre-sale before we take my words out of context again.

    i agree there are much more convincing examples but to deny that it is AN example is weird, they literally told media outlets that was the day it launched

    You are in some serious denial if you can watch the breakdown of just the handles used by the founders and then know 4/30 was set as the reveal day and not see a connection. I mean come on man.

    I wasn't denying anything, it appears I was just wrong. The pre-sale was not hyped and then suddenly on May 1st, everyone was talking about BAYC.

    That's why I don't think anything of the April 30th connection. Again I was wrong about how the pre-sale reveal occurred and was announced.

    Watching Philion's video gave me what I imagine is the same rush Q Anon people get to feel all the time. I can see how it would be habit forming.

    But like Phillion doesn’t make random logical leaps from leaving the gold standard to underground lizard people running the planet. Maybe the video would be better if he did.

    My favorite part might have been how the CEO of The Bored Ape U-Boat Society used her being Cuban as evidence that there is no Nazi or racist thing happening. Like she is aware that Cubans have been marginalized in some way by some group so how dare the interviewer even bring the Nazi shit up to begin with.

    I'm not surprised there are Nazis in the space because why would someone be but I don't really get a self describe centrist defending them. By his own admission he doesn't even own one.

    If I were a Bored Ape Stan, I’m not so sure I’d be able to get around the use of the same unrounded circle in the logo of the totenkopf. Why even use the skull logo at all considering the symbolism skulls provide don’t seem to be at all relevant to the rest of the project? The fact that they haven’t scraped the logo definitely points to the subversive trolling being the entire point of the project.

    The video is pretty damning. Maybe one can write off a couple pieces of it but there's just too much there to walk away thinking it's not a racist troll. If you watch it and you're still ok with the project, you should stop and ask yourself why that is.

    I wouldn't mind picking through the capitulation at the end of this cycle.

    It resembles the early dot com mania where there is an underlying technology that is promising but it needs to find its direction first.

    Somehow ended up watching a short Solk Road documentary. During the investigation, a DEA agent stole 20,000 btc. Idk what the price was at the time but that's $400,00,000 now. :laugh:

    Let's continue to ignore that the BAYC video wasn't a publicity stunt or shill, either (this isn't the first time this happened which was my reason for dismissing the video early on when they shilled Ryder Ripps and ended the video shilling his project)





    I think the word you're looking for is Ponzi'd not Nazi'd
