I do not hate bitcoin. I find it difficult to imagine a bright long-term future for a decentralized digital currency in a world full of centralized governments with strict, soulless and utilitarian laws that monopolize physical currencies. But since anything is possible in the short term, I do not shorten bitcoins.
