Financial freedom is our only hope.

Money is a shared delusion. All money, in a sense, is a scam. But some forms of money are much more scammy than others.

The most valuable startup of the last decade didn’t raise money, didn’t have employees, gave away the cap table, and let anyone invest.

In 5-10 years when we look back and consider why the next big tech sector centered itself in Asia and not in the US, it will be the SEC's unwillingness to create new rules to regulate new assets that will be the cause

One of the biggest scams in crypto is the number of people that call non-scams, scams.

Funny how a bull market makes people believe in the underlying tech/ideas. Welcome back, seasonal friends of crypto. Our industry made a lot of progress since your last visit.

I’m part of the revolution. Long $BTC, short the bankers.

To advocate for crypto is to advocate for money to be subject to open competition, like any other important good or service in a market economy. The money monopolists (central banks and governments) will oppose this change, softly & curiously at first, and then with a vengeance.

Bitcoin is most important where the people are least free.

Crypto will disrupt tech like tech has disrupted everything else. There is overlap but it’s really a different sector — down to the base level of how organizations are formed, monetized, and exited. Like the desktop to cloud/mobile transition, will take decades to play out.

Unseizable, uninflatable, and uncensorable money is still the single most important application of crypto. Everything else in crypto is still looking for a product market fit.

People in Bitcoin love to talk about separating signal from noise but get caught up in the noisiest, short-term drama creating, clout chasing, bullshit nonsense that will have no effect on Bitcoin in the long-term. Do less.

If it’s not going to be completely and utterly decentralized, it doesn’t need a blockchain.

For many young people, Bitcoin is the first thing that they are truly responsible for. Everything else has a safety net, a way to undo things should you screw up. It's the antithesis of the "you deserve" BS that they've grown up with and the first real taste of reality.

Private blockchains are kind of like the country club of blockchains. You need an invitation to join, and once you're in, you realize it's mostly just a bunch of WASPy bankers sitting around the clubhouse talking about how awesome it is to be a WASPy banker.

By holding dollars you are ultimately trusting politicians. By holding Bitcoin you are ultimately trusting open source code. Trust in politicians tends to fall over time. Trust in open source code tends to rise over time. And so, with time, which system likely advances?

Bitcoin mining, in its 10 years of existence, consumed as much energy as US cars do in 3 days.

Crypto is maturing. It is now firmly in its adolescence.
