    #008 - Maximum Maximalism with the Shitcoin Insider

    We have got a great episode of Shitcoin Insider today, we bring the Insider himself back to the show today to discuss what Bitcoin maximalism even means, is it a "dying breed?" Is it just a bunch of meanies on Twitter? Or have we found ourselves fighting over a caricature that's equated to the lowest common denominator of the Twitterverse, while ignoring the actual set of principles behind the Bitcoin-only philosophy and what it truly means?
