Patrick Miller, also known on Crypto Twitter as Brickstring Tech, is one big Bitcoin enthusiast who won’t take any compromises. When it comes to his opinions on altcoins, he is radical, demanding, and as skeptical as can be. As you are about to find out while listening to this 1-hour interview, Mr. Miller believes that anything except for BTC exists for the sole purpose of helping greedy actors acquire more BTC through elaborate schemes.
However, the discussion isn’t as one-sided and rigid as it may sound. The bitconer can see the experimental and scientific value in some altcoins, and can definitely understand some Keynesian considerations. Nevertheless, he will say that for every Litecoin and Bitcoin Cash willing to do cheap microtransactions there is WePay or M-Pesa to provide a better alternative.

Mr. Miller believes that the best use case of blockchains and cryptocurrencies is uncensorable and unconfiscatable sound money, and won’t let anyone tell him otherwise. In order to compliment this description, you will also find stories from various Bitcoin meetups that he attended, as a way of revealing human greed and the general poor understanding of Satoshi’s invention.
When he doesn’t express technologically-conservative ideas about blockchains on Twitter and during interviews, Patrick Miller writes blog posts on topics such as Bitcoin’s block size, the Lightning Network, and the intentions behind altcoin projects.
So if you would like to hear the opinions of a man who has been around the BTC space for longer than five years, then you will find this interview both interesting and informative.
