Bitcoin Power Users – mrkozak

This is the final article in a series where we interviewed real users to understand what Bitcoin SV (BSV) applications are using, their pain points and what it takes to scale and achieve mass adoption. This series intends to seek the views of those with “boots on the ground” rather than just entrepreneurs and developers.

I interviewed a power user mrkozakThe person I observe uses a variety of BSV programs and has very interesting ideas about what can be done with technology.

What is your favorite app built on Bitcoin and why?

Mrkozak: DuroDogs, Haste Arcade, PayPistol, CryptoFights. I don’t have a favorite, but these are the ones I liked when I first heard about BSV. I think they are on to something. I think having the characters on my chain or wallet was the most interesting for me.

I don’t like spending time on a game and then having all my progress wiped out if the company closes up shop. I guess I can keep my DuroDogs and CryptoFights characters forever and hopefully show them off years or decades from now with the work I put into them. This idea is disgusting to me personally.

PayPistol is fun to spam people with and I think it will become a great tool in the future. Haste Arcade is just great, it could use some development or just go into arcade machines ASAP. People either like or don’t like to throw quarters at toys sometimes, but I think they’re on to something.

What app(s) do you use on a daily basis and why?

Mrkozak: I was going to say that I don’t use any BSV apps on a daily basis, but I think I use Twetch by tweeting to the chain on Twitter. Earning sats (satoshi) there doesn’t do anything for me, but maybe it can attract people interested in blockchain from Twitter. I also spam my HandCash handle on every post I request on Twitter.

How long have you been a digital currency user?

Mrkozak: I first played with cryptocurrency maybe three years ago, I was skeptical and played with doge as a meme, but unfortunately I didn’t invest. About a year later (close to an all-time high), I started getting more involved with crypto. I was attracted to cheap fees because I didn’t see how anyone but early adopters could use and spend $btc and $eth.

I got on Twitter and followed the Algorand, Stellar Lumens and Celo guys, it was fun but somehow it didn’t stick. I then got into BSV the same way on Twitter, followed a bunch of people, tried PayPistol and was hooked. BSV offered more benefits than NFTs and tokens offered by others.

If applicable, what other digital currencies do you use?

Mrkozak: I slowly sold most of my small bags of everything but $BSV. I enjoy being poor.

What do you think the Bitcoin SV space needs most?

Mrkozak: Stoic positivity. I think the internal stoicism about typical cryptocurrencies that exists even in BSV, the external positive attitude towards the technology and the future. We’re in a space where money is involved – budget, be smart.

Are you still bullish on the BSV price?

Mrkozak: Yes. I am not a trader at all, I have lost quite a lot of money in this space. After missing out on Dogecoin, despite loving it as a meme, I told myself that if I really like something, there’s no harm in having something just in case. I think BSV has more potential than dogecoin and I like it so I’m holding some.

What overall impact (positive, negative, neutral) do you feel Craig Wright and Calvin Ayre have had on the space?

Mrkozak: I don’t know much history about them other than what I’ve seen online and a few videos I’ve seen of Craig. Craig is louder so I hear him more. I wonder if cryptocurrency needs the same concern as Craig does, or if it can continue to fool people and Bitcoin can be seen as a sad joke to most people.

People in charge of organizations probably need to be careful about public speaking, especially on social media. I see Calvin in a neutral light, the hate he gets isn’t from his social media, he’s a businessman doing what he thinks is right. I think my answer is: POSITIVE. They’re breaking cryptocurrency, that’s why they hate it.

Do you believe BSV needs better marketing?

Mrkozak: Probably yes, maybe Christen does it, but let’s not put all the pressure on one person.

If so, why?

Mrkozak: People need to see that there is more that can be done on chain than selling jpegs and chain loyalty for the chain with the most bags. Bitcoin is a technological revolution, not pump and dump.

What are your pain points and frustrations when using applications that integrate Bitcoin SV?

Mrkozak: We are early adopters. We fund people’s experiences. The app appears, we assume they are legit or will continue to develop, they close our store and move on. That’s understandable, but maybe we need real companies, not app developers.

Maybe we need BSV WordPress plugins or simpler programs. A program I will use a lot is, an encrypted note and password manager, but I don’t know how it works so I can’t trust it.

What do you think is the biggest risk to mass adoption of Bitcoin?

Mrkozak: People may not actually want the technology. Therefore, it probably needs a lower core technology running in the background.

What kind of hot relationship do you have in space?

Mrkozak: I think everyone here wants the best for each other, even the NFT cheaters. That doesn’t mean you have to buy every jpeg out there.

Are you interested in an RPG (role playing game) set with Bitcoin, can you give us your thoughts on it?

Mrkozak: I think the main idea is that an RPG is like an imitation of real life. I’m not very serious about it and I’m not a gamer at all. I think it would be fun to have simple cheap or free stuff for existing NFT tokens and simulate what a real life exchange would be like.

Spam the chain, but since some protocols block sales on NFTs, people might actually have to have a plan when minting. Imagine an NFT drop like Gopniks where everyone is around, but large and affordable enough to attract everyone to the space. Someone should send me a rock NFT with the description “Your fell on a rock, decided to pick it up”. I think it’s fun.

Thanks for taking the time to answer my questions, mrkozak. I hope readers have gained a better understanding of the space from the perspective of everyday users.
