Crypto News: Swedish Pirate Rick Falkvinge Brings Humor and Profundity to Bitcoin Cash Debate

Swedish Pirate Rick Falkvinge Brings Humor and Profundity to Bitcoin Cash Debate

Satire of the European variety is said to have begun second century with Juvenal, who used parody to expose those with whom he disagreed. In this regard, Jonathan Swift popularized the form in his legendary A Modest Proposal, thoroughly juvenalian, an early 18th century piece suggesting poor Irish should sell their children bundled as food for the upper classes. It was so outrageous, but postured seriously and set to type, that as many got the joke as didn’t, and it managed to spark debate generally about the Irish plight relative to British subjection.

Official takes a Swiftian bent immediately, playing into the hands of BCH’s most ardent critics by displaying a letterhead, complete with logo, hilariously and impossibly titled in English and French, and dated 12 November 2017. The logo alone has been an object of fierce debate, from its use of the dollar’d B, to the color scheme, to slanting the letter itself.

Mr. Falkvinge is perhaps best known as creator of Sweden’s The Pirate Party. He has since become something of an unofficial spokesman, lecturer on the subject of cryptocurrencies.
