In 2017 I first learned about Bitcoin through a series of Medium.com blog posts and from the Tim Ferriss Podcast with Nick Szabo. I got the general gist of bitcoin’s value proposition back then, bought a small amount, and forgot about it.
Then in 2020, Michael Saylor came into the picture with his first purchase of $250 million dollars worth of bitcoin for his public companies’ (MicroStrategy) treasury. His company has since accumulated over 129,000 bitcoins. In addition to that, the country El Salvador purchased 400 bitcoins and made the digital currency legal tender. Upon learning about this, I started to dive deeper down the bitcoin rabbit hole. I subsequently bought and read the book The Bitcoin Standard and became all in on the asset and its computer network.
I believe that Bitcoin has the potential to become as impactful as the printing press or the internet in our civilization — hence my fascination with it.
