If you are reading this article Bitcoin Magazine, Then there are probably many similarities between you and me. Apparently, we both fell into the bitcoin rabbit hole. See if it sounds like you:
Going to the gym? I’ll hear Guy Swann narrate an essay then be pumped about it (it’s the amazing energy that he brings to his podcast alone in the middle of the night). Got a bunch of monotonous work at work? I think I’ll listen to John Wallis talk about psychology, war and philosophy. Or maybe I’m going to a golf course that’s 30 minutes away. Perfect, I’ll start a Breedlove podcast and finish it on the way back. I hope Michael Siler is on. I love when he tells me how Bitcoin complies with the laws of thermodynamics and is the most efficient battery ever made. Oh, and my girlfriend wants to go out with some friends on Friday night? I have already downloaded Murray Rothbird’s “Anatomy of the State” and plan to listen to the audiobook on the porch with a glass of bourbon in hand.
Sounds like you? You get it. The bitcoin rabbit hole has endless intellectual stimulation. And financial gain. That’s what brought most of us here in the first place, didn’t it? Be honest.
So the title of this article is NGU. Number go up. Yes, the number of bitcoins is increasing. But I’m not talking about that. A chance to reflect on this: How many people do you have orange? Has your number increased?
Here’s why I’m asking: As a Bitcoiner, I think endlessly about Bitcoin, Sound Money, Global Economics, and so on. And for four years I also bought Bitcoin nonstop. And a week ago, I was transferred to a tax-friendly jurisdiction and by the end of the year I would be quitting my Fiat job. The plan is to travel with my girlfriend and work on my golf game to become a scratch golfer.
I’m also thinking of writing a short book to encourage hardworking people stuck on the fit hamster wheel to discover bitcoin and start saving with money. But why would anyone read my book? I am not famous and no one knows who I am. Do you read books under the age of under0 (besides us)?
I have worked hard over the last four years to transform cousins, uncles, friends, and even the CFO of the company where I work to keep Bitcoin on their joint balance sheet. But I have had limited success. My number was not increasing. That is, until recently; Now I was actually a total stranger to orange pilling! Here’s how it usually works:
When I go out to play golf, people around the second hole ask the usual question – what do you do, where do you live? My answer is that I just moved to Tennessee, but no, it’s not for work, it’s for favorable taxes. Then they ask me what I do and I tell them I’m quitting my job, but I’m a bitcoiner. I’m retiring fast and asking how old I am with a smile on my face. I answer: I’m 29 and, no, I’m just rescheduling my time.
I can see the light in their eyes. Now they know someone who, thanks to Bitcoin, doesn’t need to work anymore.
In the back nine, I’ll talk about their fold app and debit card and it’s a great way to start depositing bitcoin for the everyday things you purchase. No, the fold does not sponsor me (my wish). But the best way to get the horse into the water and drinking is based on recent signups!
My goal is to connect people with Bitcoin. From there, those who are intellectually curious will hopefully fall under the rabbit hole and find what we found. So what have we got?
I find that Bitcoin brings me hope, freedom and sovereignty in a world where governments force small businesses to close, a world of taxes – the worst of which is inflation – a world of incompetent governments that can’t balance their budgets, inadequate wages. , Fire in the west, flood in the south … the list goes on forever.
With Bitcoin, I hope for a future where people can make valuable contributions and save with money that efficiently saves that value for their lives and future generations.
With the help of Bitcoin, those who are fleeing the fire in California, or from the Taliban in Afghanistan or the overly restricted Australian government can all have freedom because they can take their wealth with them, wherever they go.
With Bitcoin, I have the highest power over my life. I am a sovereign person (yes, “sovereign person” is a must read book). Every day I can follow the path that makes me happiest. When I die, I will live intentionally and with purpose.
But this moment is unique in the history of Bitcoin and it will be fleeting. What am I talking about? Year 2021 and you can still buy bitcoin with Fiat money. I doubt it will last much longer.
I believe Bitcoin will become a global reserve currency. And right now it’s cheap. People can literally change the course of their lives by buying Bitcoin – that’s what happened to me. In the near future, maybe 10-20 years from now, Bitcoin will be worth 10 10 million but you can’t buy it with Fiat money. No one will give you bitcoin for dollars. Why? Because the marginal cost of printing another dollar is zero, therefore, it has no value (thanks for the lesson, Parker Lewis). At that point, the only way to earn Bitcoin would be to create a good or service that others think is valuable and willing to pay through Bitcoin.
My hope is to help as many people as possible to see the opportunity that Bitcoin is seeing at the moment. Maybe I’ll write that book and get lots of people to read it. But if this article helps my fellow Bitcoins introduce more friends and strangers to Bitcoin, I too will be very happy with that result.
