I just bought some Bitcoin for my newborn baby

I had the option to put it in a 529 plan, and I probably will from now on, but the initial seed money was put into Bitcoin. 17.5 years later, either I will have a very happy child who will be able to pay for college and get a debt-free education, or we will laugh about how her daddy thought a small seed investment was going to pay for her college :).

I hope Reddit will be around for the next 18 years so I can revisit this post and reminisce about this very day!

Bitcoin – The Currency of the Internet

I Gave People In The Office Some Bitcoin

So over the last few weeks I have given about 15 people in my office some BTC. All on paper wallets, laminated. Told them that there is a couple bucks worth of BTC on each wallet. I told them to put it somewhere safe and one day, when the time is right to them, pull it out and use it. Some looked at me like I am nuts, some thanked me, some have been asking me questions everyday since. Some have asked me how to get the money off, I tell them "you have to figure it out for yourself" every time I get a question I tell them to try to learn how to answer it themselves. It's been fun.

It has certainly gotten 15 new people intrigued, started a lot of conversation and two of them have gone down the rabbit hole hard, one sending me links at 11:30 pm on Sat night "Check this out" with a link. I love it.

Seriously all crypto exchanges: You all goddamn live and breathe on the back of blockchain technology, so why the ever living jesus fuck do I have to send a complete stranger on your support chats, all my ID details. Why can’t you use some other blockchain-based privacy method that’s less shit

Bitcoin – The Currency of the Internet

Coinbase wants to reward its users for “educating” themselves about some of the lesser-known tokens. The real intention is of course to create an illusion of competence – users are more likely to buy things they think they understand & feel in control.
