Although the general feeling of the Bitcoin community and Bitcoin Magazine One of hope and optimism, the real world is often not so straightforward.
Our recent post discusses the reality of addiction, and how it relates to the Fiat world and .n. I believe this is an important issue that touches almost everyone. As drug and alcohol addiction spreads widely in the United States, almost everyone knows friends or family members have been affected. Addiction can also be found, similarly, in our financial system and the debt cycle it spreads.
OtterBTC, a former castle and alcohol addict, and I’ve discussed these two topics in this podcast episode, so be sure to listen to it, check out his article and read our interview below.
What’s the story of your bitcoin rabbit hole?
I became quite familiar with Bitcoin during the bull race in late 2017. I bought a small coin and then saw the price drop in the bear market in 2018. At some point, I wanted to know more.
I started trying to find content where I could learn. I remember listening to a podcast with Tim Ferris, Naval Ravikant and Nick Sajabo and then another where Vance Cassares was interviewed. I fell under the rabbit hole. I felt as if the veil was being lifted from my eyes. I was previously interested in gold and silver coins as valuable collection materials, but it was different. The impact of massively accepting bitcoin at a convenience for every person on the planet has fascinated me ever since.
How has Bitcoin changed your life?
Today I am more optimistic and optimistic for the future because of Bitcoin. Even in the midst of all the chaos around us, knowing that Bitcoin exists, there is a twinkle in my eye and there is advocacy everywhere and more people are being enlightened every moment. I have always intuitively believed that centralized control over anything valuable – money, products, services or even the people themselves, was the cause of so much oppression in the world, but I did not dig so deep to understand the mechanisms behind how this control was managed. And it all starts with money.
My eyes are more open today. I take more responsibility for my feedback in today’s life and I like to verify before believing any person or organization to be presented as true. Encourage me …
Your recent part about addiction, fiat, debt and bitcoin was really interesting. Can you discuss some of the parallels you see between these things and why you were able to write this article?
As I mentioned in the article, our global economy is addicted to cheap fiat debt in an unstable way. The result is widespread distortions in the market that have far-reaching effects on society. The majority of the population works to meet high-time priority (short-term satisfaction) goals. We are always afraid that the price of what we want will go up, so we have to get them now, so we take out debt to get these kinds of things.
Debt can be thought of as another form of slavery. It may seem like getting a hamster wheel inside a cage at the bottom of the Debt, where you stay active but don’t realize that your main purpose is to serve only the responsibilities that you have fulfilled. It is a soul-sucking effort and leads to the degradation of the individual.
I was once a slave to drugs and alcohol. This is a frustrating and frustrating place. At many points I survived just to serve the mantra of the addiction I was under. I received a moment of grace and the opportunity to change my life, for which I will be forever grateful.
At the time of writing this article, I wanted to share some of my story and give the community a perspective. Social illness affects all of us. Misinformation about money and the negative effects of debt seem as vague as ignorance as we as a society deal with drug / alcohol addiction and related stigma. I want to help shed light on both.
What are you most looking forward to in Bitcoin space?
I look forward to receiving and learning more widely. Millions more “lightblob” moments. I want more people to have their brains brighter when they interact with Bitcoin, send them their first transaction and see their savings increase over time. I am waiting for people to value their time more and instead spend that time with their family or do whatever they like.
Prices forecast for the end of 2021 and 2030?
I will say, we see $ 100,000 before January 1, 2022.
