“I would take my salary in Bitcoin if merchants accepted it.” The way Bitcoin wins is if WE show demand for the merchants who ALREADY DO accept it. 10,000’s of merchants accept Bitcoin, but we can’t find them online. Screw another website tracking price. We need a website that facilitates trade.

If you think that this ecosystem is too big for you to make an impact, you're sadly mistaken. The guy who started Coinmarketcap.com was a college kid living in Brooklyn.

It's up to us to build the future. It's up to us to drive demand. Many merchants offer a discount for paying in Bitcoin – Fuck it, I'd gladly pay 5% more if you let me pay in Bitcoin.

Create a website. Make a little database search. Email merchants asking if they want to be listed.

Get popular, make a millino bucks no problem.

Microsoft was started in a garage. Coinmarketcap was started by a guy who bought a website domain sitting in his bedroom.

Bitcoin – The Currency of the Internet

If you haven’t already seen it, this will be the last chance for you to watch the short Cryptocurrency comedy film ‘Buy The Dip’. The film won an award for Best Original Story and it has been accepted to a major film festival which means it will be unavailable for public viewing!

Bitcoin – The Currency of the Internet

This is why we already have 17 million coins in circulation and the remaining 4 million only available over the next 120 years.

Satoshi was very smart.

He knew most new technologies usually take a minimum of 10 years to gain any real traction.

He wanted to issue as many coins as possible within the first 10 years to keep the price suppressed so as many average people as possible could obtain cheap coins during the bootstrapping phase.

What happens next is mainstream adoption and institutional demand run smack into severely reduced supply and the price explodes very quickly to a much higher "normal".

This was the most egalitarian way to introduce a new form of money. He honestly was also very aware of the fact that libertarians and programmers would be the first involved and would therefore become the new wealthy elite while banks and politicians tried everything to stop it, becoming less powerful in the process.

Bitcoin was ingeniously designed to transfer wealth towards libertarians, nerds and average citizens and away from corrupt incumbent politicians and financial institutions.
