I was first introduced to Bitcoin in 2011 while living in New Hampshire as part of the Free State Project and co-hosting on Free Talk Live. Although my discretionary monies were confiscated by the CA Tax Franchise Board and my trading account levied by the I Ruin Souls gang, which precluded me from purchasing Bitcoin, tips and gifts drew me into the marketplace earlier than otherwise would have been possible. So, despite thieves shutting down my ability to transact as I had for two decades, providing jobs and blessings with the fruit of my labor voluntarily, patience and staying-the-course rewarded me.
Bitcoin has enabled me to be productive in a way that the political system, that is intertwined with the USD would otherwise deprive me of, to the loss of not only the robbers I refuse to pay, but also those who benefit from my willingness to conduct commerce and trade. In other words, the doers. And it is just the beginning. The very beginning. Cryptocurrency is the most exciting, revolutionary, and important contribution I have witnessed in the 34 years I’ve been an advocate for freedom.
The following are my current favorite videos, and along with Satoshi Nakamoto’s love letter are what I recommend to people who want to understand what I consider to be the highest potential for Bitcoin- the ownership of the fruit of one’s labor.
1) Bitcoin Crash Course with Andreas Antonopoulos @aantonop
2) How Bitcoin Will End the Nation State @jeffreyatucker
