Just kidding, but there's more to it: I think we should lean in to Monero being the people's coin, the one that's actually used for payments, which is built with security in mind but won't win a beauty contest.

And of course, our favorite marketing tool is pasting a sticker on a lamp post. I have more such photos, which I never posted here, because I didn't want to preach to the choir. I snuck them into a story about walking to the university campus, also posted to the local subreddit for Utrecht.
