Bitcoin's story cannot be told without the inclusion of both its strongest believers and disbelievers. Healthy skepticism of revolutionary technology is vital because it speeds up development and adoption.

I created bitcoinisdead.org in hopes of playing a (tiny) role in telling its eventual story by tracking its most notable skeptics and documenting important pieces of its history. (Also as a longtime hodler, I think freezing cold takes are pretty funny.)

It tracks notable skeptics, quotes, dates, the price of Bitcoin on those dates, how much the price of $BTC has increased since, etc. and I'm planning on updating the database about once every two weeks. I made the Bitcoin Skeptic Hall of Fame and another section called Well Actually where I cataloged the most common criticisms of Bitcoin and made rebuttals to each.

Hope you guys enjoy it! Definitely open to feedback on how I could improve it as well.

Before you mention it, I'm aware that the obituaries section on 99Bitcoins exists. But in going through their posts, I noticed that ~30% of their entries were incorrect - dates were off, quotes were taken out of context, source links were broken, and obituaries were attributed to the wrong person. The information also just isn't displayed in a way that's clean and organized or easy to absorb in any way. So I decided to make something better.

I randomly came across a crypto project called Augur on Reddit; they had posted in r/startups for some reason. Then I looked into what cryptocurrencies were, read the Bitcoin whitepaper, and the rest is history.
