Bitcoin has now been operating for ten years without confirming a single fraudulent transaction, and without deviating from its original monetary issuance schedule. Deal with it!

Such an important theme for people to be prepared for. Bitcoin and cryptocurrency isn't about "making banking better." It's about building an alternative to *inevitable* ubiquitous surveillance, the current default.

Crypto is software eating finance.

It used to be that testing out macroeconomic theories required winning a war, a revolution, or an election. Now a college dropout can start a new economy from a laptop for free, if they can find users. The reduction in upfront cost is so immense that it’s a true 0-to-1 leap.

Crypto winters exist to weed out the opportunists; white blood cells for the evolution of the decentralized world.

Self-control is priceless in the modern abundant world. If you have it, you're winning.

I doubt that there is going to be a direct mass-adoption of Bitcoin. Nobody mass-adopted gold. The coins that were made out of it were the killer app. People used coins in their daily lives because it was easy. And they will do the same with things 'made out of Bitcoin'.

How do blockchains die? They either break at consensus-level (e.g., deep reorgs) or market cap goes to zero (tech works but no one cares).

The only job security you'll find in the 21st century is within yourself - your own ability to adapt to dynamic market conditions.

Just a friendly reminder, every 24 days the US national debt grows more than the entire market cap of bitcoin.

The last bubble saw a lot of people that didn't bother learning about economics, money or security. They learned an expensive lesson.

Once you give the power of money to the state, you become a slave to the system. Bitcoin is the only money where you don't give control to someone else.

I am often surprised by how many semi successful people there are who suffer from a complete failure of imagination and inability to see a future in which things might be in any way different from how they are presently

The underlying driver of most crypto narratives is that it has a lot of smart/quiet people working on it and a lot of loud/dumb people investing in it.
