REMEMBER: There will NEVER be enough BTC for all of today’s existing millionaires to own just ONE.

There will only ever be a maximum of 21 million bitcoins.

Ever.

Total number of millionaires (in USD value) worldwide is around 33 million (source: https://www.cnbc.com/2016/11/22/12-million-new-millionaires-will-be-minted-over-the-next-five-years.html)

The math is simple: there simply isn't enough Bitcoin in the world for every one of today's millionaires to own even ONE SINGLE BITCOIN. Much less all the future Millionaires waiting to be born.

If you are able to acquire even one BTC today: Enjoy the feeling.

You are an early adopter. And one of a select few.

If every millionaire wanted 1 BTC, they couldn’t have one.

According to this study, http://publications.credit-suisse.com/tasks/render/file/index.cfm?fileid=168E2808-9ED4-5A5E-19E43EA2A731A4ED

there are 35.9 million USD millionaires in the world. With 21 million BTC max in existence, they could each only have at most 0.585 BTC (even less if 2-4 million BTC is lost forever.) And that's if no governments, banks, or other corporations wanted any.

Think about that. They couldn't each have one. It doesn't matter how rich those people are. How many millionaires are you preventing from owning a whole BTC?

buy and HODL

Bitcoin – The Currency of the Internet

Every day that goes by I realize that Bitcoin is much more of a social revolution than a financial one…

• It has presented itself as a way to make huge profits quickly but I believe it’s just a way to attract as many people as possible. To outsiders, this looks like a cult, naive and short sighted.

“I’ve seen this before” many say.

But they haven’t. It’s not 1999, it’s 1929.

• Every major revolution comes once in a generation. No one fully lives through two, which is why they repeat themselves. Over and over. Approximately every 80-90 years. (“The Fourth Turning”)

• I don’t know what will happen with Bitcoin price or any crypto for that matter but I do know this – there is something brewing with geopolitics, with the economy, with inequality and with how things currently are. Travel around the world – you feel it

• This is why I urge everyone I know to buy some crypto, mostly Bitcoin, because it is a hedge against that macro force. The price will go up and down. Maybe it pops then comes back. But that won’t matter in 10 years – the seeds have been planted.

• Beyond the profits and the daily dopamine rush, this is infinitely bigger than people think – not because people will spend Bitcoin on groceries but because of what it represents – freedom from the system.

Only when we look back will we realize what it is we were a part of.
