∞ 🌎 Death, taxes and... bitcoin?

If you understand bitcoin, you pity its enemies. Its decentralized and open-source nature makes it an unstoppable force. Come get some.

People hold money because they are uncertain about the future. They save to buy groceries, pay rent, and other future expenses.

An essential characteristic of money is its certainty. Money is certain when its monetary policy and future purchasing power are predictable.

The monetary policy that determines the future of fiat currencies is not certain. Central banks can create more money at any time, inflating away purchasing power. Thus, fiat currencies are both unpredictable and uncertain.

Thankfully, bitcoin provides us with a sound alternative. Its monetary policy is fixed and verifiable.

Critics might point to bitcoins’ current significant price fluctuations, but creating new money without a volatile monetization period is impossible. After the rapid adoption period subsides, bitcoin’s volatility will likely decline significantly.

Then, all thats left is a fixed, predictable and immutable money. Bitcoin is the monetary upgrade we’ve been waiting for. Today represents an opportunity to get in early and acquire the most certain money we’ve ever known.


🎉 Happy birthday to bitcoin

14 years ago, on January 3rd 2009, Satoshi Nakamoto set the monetary revolution into motion and mined the first bitcoin block.The digital currency has since taken off, as millions save in bitcoin, and the network settles trillions of dollars in transactions worldwide. Many have tried to imitate bitcoin, but to this day, it remains king.

Hidden in the code of the first bitcoin block ever mined was the newspaper headline "Chancellor on brink of second bailout for banks." The quote references an unfair monetary system where the masses bail out politically connected banks and financial institutions. As its original intention states, bitcoin fixes this.

In response, Maher stated he's anti-bitcoin, to which Cuban replied, "I want Bitcoin to go down a lot further so I can buy some more. If you have gold, you're dumb as f***."  

Cuban also stated that investors don't actually own the gold they buy, implying that only bitcoin provides true ownership. Nice to see from someone who initially was anti-bitcoin himself.

Learn one key idea about bitcoin each week. This week: Bitcoin is unstoppable.

Enemies of sound money have their work cut out for them.

As the title of this newsletter suggests, there are few certainties in life.

It may surprise you to find bitcoin on that list.

Yes, bitcoin's price is volatile.

Unfortunately, everything is hard to price in a credit-based economy. Central bankers continuously create, destroy, and then again create even more money in the great balancing act known as the Federal Reserve System.

The fact that bitcoin is a novel monetary revolution that exists in this current monetary system means there will be plenty of volatility in its adoption cycle.

Yet despite any short to medium-term volatility, the Bitcoin Network continues to live. And thrive.

That's because no one can turn it off.

Unlike fiat, bitcoin is open source. Anyone can access and suggest modifications to the code, making it more secure and efficient over time. Nothing in bitcoin is done behind closed doors.

Bitcoin's monetary policy could not be more different than the existing system - where a few unelected central bankers make decisions from the top down.

The open-source nature of bitcoin makes it much harder for any single person or entity to control or manipulate the system. Every participant in the network is therefore incentivized to only implement changes that are good for the network as a whole.

And with no one in charge, there is no central point of failure, which makes bitcoin virtually impossible to shut down. Even if one node (computer running the bitcoin software) goes offline, the network will automatically continue running because someone else in a different location will also be running a node.

If bitcoin is such a threat to the existing fiat money regime, you might wonder why certain powers that be haven't shut it down.

It's simple: they can't. And that's a good thing, because it gives us options... May the best money win.
