Bitcoiners have the curse of Cassandra – Bitcoin Magazine

This is an op-ed by Mark Maraia, Entrepreneur, Author of “Rainmaking Made Simple” and Bitcoiner.

Legend has it that there was once a Trojan princess named Cassandra, daughter of King Priam and Queen Hecuba, sister of Hector, the Trojan prince who fought Achilles (of heel-related fame). The god Apollo fell in love with her and in an attempt to woo her, he gave her the gift of being able to see her future. Unimpressed, she rejected her love. A god could not take back a divine gift once he had given it to her, so in her anger, Apollo could only give her something else, this time a curse. Cassandra was destined to always see the truth of the future, but no one she told of her vision ever believed her.
