“Why I left Bitcoin” – All the best answers

Recently a Twitter conversation went viral among our Crypto Twitter friends, namely the question of “Why I left Bitcoin”. The hashtag #ReasonsYouLeftBitcoin had some joy but the conversation as a whole gathered more pace.

Some answers were humorous, some sarcastic while more were actually deadly serious about their reasons for moving away from Bitcoin and either out of crypto altogether or into alternative cryptos (most choosing to switch to XRP it appears).

Here in this post I’ll dig out and list all the very best responses.

Why I left Bitcoin
