Although the general sentiment of the Bitcoin community and that of Bitcoin Magazine is one of hope and optimism, the real world is often not so straightforward.  One of our recent posts discussed the reality of addiction, and how this relates to the fiat world and debt. I believe that this is an important topic that touches nearly everyone. With drug and alcohol addiction widespread in the United States, almost everyone knows a friend or family member impacted. Addiction can also be found, in a way, in our fiat monetary system and the debt cycle it proliferates.  OtterBTC, a former...

Meet the Bitcoin Taco Plebs - Bitcoin Magazine

Austrian economics is a very common topic of discussion and study within the bitcoin community. Being the base economic theory upon which we find bitcoin resting, it makes sense that understanding this would be a primary lead for someone to get into bitcoin. Josef Tětek, one of our regular contributors here at Bitcoin Magazine, is an example of this.  Tětek has written some fantastic articles for us, including “,” “” and “”  Bullish on both bitcoin and on life, Tětek maintains an optimistic outlook that bears witness to the good bitcoin is capable of doing.  In...

In this podcast, Bap shares his rabbit hole story and his journey coming to Bitcoin after hearing about it a couple of times. He in particular has an interesting background in traditional finance and after working there as a Bitcoiner for a while, he just couldn’t do it anymore. He needed to break free from the constraints of his old job and pursue his interest in Bitcoin, and he has done just that.

Bap explains that growing up he had always been a pretty frugal dude, saving whatever he could. He even shared an interesting story about receiving bars of silver as a graduation gift for college! Later on we discuss the unique saving strategies of Bitcoiners who put most of their income straight into BTC. I talk about how you can allocate 50-60% of your paycheck and Bitcoiners will say “what is that? An allocation for ants?”. It’s funny to think that anyone outside the Bitcoin space would think you’re crazy for saving that much but, Bitcoiners know there is only 21 million bitcoin and everyone in the world is competing against each other for them. We have to stack as much as we can.

Bap explains that a beautiful thing about Bitcoin is that there are rules without rulers. The network is run on consensus, leaving no room or anyone to control it. I touch on the importance of how strong the network is against bad actors who have tried to control the space in the past couple of years. Many of tried to control it, all have failed. There are many great leaders in the Bitcoin space but as Bitcoiners have shown, if they try anything malicious, then Bitcoiners would (and have before) wage war on them.
