At the time of writing, news just broke that Amazon is acquiring MGM for almost 9 billion dollars. This news has prompted me to finish writing this post that has been sitting in my drafts for far too long. The initial motivation for this piece came from my disdain for the entertainment monolith that is Disney. That sentiment remains, and is now accompanied by the news of this acquisition among many others.

Over the last few months, I've been really disheartened by the dialogue bitcoiners are having about bitcoin. Almost every notable voice in the bitcoin community has focused their entire attention on the increasing fiat value of bitcoin and obsessing over the notion of “number go up”.

I personally felt that after the cancellation and the near abandonment of Heroes of the Storm by Blizzard, professional Heroes of the Storm at that scale was not long for this world. Oh how glad I am to be proven wrong.
