Your whole post is full of inaccuracies. I will try to clear them up.

My current alt coin holdings are less than 0.02% of the USD value of my Bitcoin holdings.

Just like Segregated Witness, Z.cash doesn't exist yet.

I've funded Bitcoin protocol development to the tune of hundreds of thousands of dollars. I've funded the development of the Bitcoin ecosystem to the tune of millions of dollars. I've funded both with about 20,000 hours of my time.

The discontinuation of Shared Send at Blockchain.info was due to threats of violence made by strangers in government.

You are right. I don't know if you are an excellent programmer or not.

Bitcoin has value as money because it has better characteristics to make it money than anything that came before it. Here is a list of the characteristics that make something useful as money: http://i.imgur.com/M5tWqBM.png Because of the artificial restrictions being put on its use, it is losing those advantages.

Yes, I've taken numerous formal economics classes, but most of what I actually learned about economics came from reading primary texts by such greats as Adam Smith, Ludwig von Mises, Milton Friedman, Henry Hazlitt, Murray Rothbard, and others.

Should probably describe what you're talking about here, because as far as I know, you're taking direct credit for BCF's funding; and if that's the case, then perhaps you can explain to us why BCF bankrupted itself in the process of your funding decisions, and account for where all our bitcoins went.

Really? You were recently bragging on BCT that you 'funded development' by holding Bitcoin, and thats all you needed to do. Is that what you're referring to here? If not-- what protocol development work did you fund?

Do you have evidence of this? If so, it is very worrying.
