Bitcoins! Get Yer Bitcoins! Get ’em While You Can

Posted 3/14/22 by Tomer Strolight

The Window of Opportunity to Buy Bitcoin Closes a Little More Every Single Day

A One Time Only Event: The Issuance of Bitcoin

You can earn money. You can make money. You can save money. But it doesn’t really make any sense to ‘buy money’. What would you buy it with?

However, we are living through a unique time in history. The whole world’s money is changing from one form to another, and you can actually buy the new, incoming money with the old, outgoing one.

We’ve all heard those claims in count­less ads before, haven’t we? So many ads try to frighten us into immedi­ately buying. They warn us that their product is running out, that the price will go up soon, and so we have to “act now”.

Of course, we’ve grown wise to those exagger­ated claims. They never hold up.

New shipments arrive and new limited-time-only sales get announced to clear out that new inventory.

However, Bitcoin is not like any adver­tised product you’ve seen before.

“ACT NOW!

This offer is avail­able for a limited time only, and supplies are

strictly limited.”

A Brief Report from the Bitcoin Production Lines

I have been to the Bitcoin produc­tion lines. I have inspected them closely. They are seven short lines of computer code. My findings are unequiv­ocal and startling.

First, only 6.25 Bitcoin can be discov­ered about every ten minutes, across all the Bitcoin mines in the world (at the time of this article).

Second, no matter how many Bitcoin mines open up, no matter how much energy they put into mining Bitcoin, that number will not go up.

Third, the output of those mines — every last one of them — is going to fall by 50% in a few years. 

Then, four years later, output will be cut in half again.

Finally, there’s absolutely nothing anybody can do to change these lines to increase the output.

My conclu­sion: supplies of Bitcoin really are strictly limited!

You’re One of the Early Few

Over 90% of Ameri­cans have heard of Bitcoin. That’s not bad for a digital asset that nobody can see or touch; that isn’t a company; that has no employees; that never took a penny of invest­ment; whose founder vanished years ago and hasn’t been heard from since; and which itself has never spent a penny (or a satoshi) on advertising.

It’s even better consid­ering nobody knew what a ‘digital asset’ was before Bitcoin defined it.

How can Bitcoin have achieved such broad aware­ness, so quickly?

How can nearly everyone have heard of something so strange, so different and so new?

Here’s one reason:

People want scarce things, and will act quickly if time compels them to do so.

The claims of scarcity, and that it is increasing over time, are entirely true about Bitcoin. That’s why millions of people all around the world, without being paid to do so, are telling each other something along the lines of:

“Oh my god! There’s something whose quanti­ties really are strictly limited! And it’s not going to be avail­able at the price for very much longer!”

Nearly everyone in the world has heard of Bitcoin by now, but hardly anyone has any of it yet.

That is going to change!

Bitcoins are for sale, and they are truly, provably, irrefutably, avail­able only in strictly limited quanti­ties, and only for a limited time.

So as the saying goes, “get ’em while you can.”

This is not an adver­tising message. This is a fact of nature.

It’s still so very early.

Only about 10% of Ameri­cans own any Bitcoin, and around the world, less than 1% of people have any yet. The more that people realize just how scarce Bitcoin are, the more they’re going to be stampeding to get their hands on some.

You Happen To Be In The Right Place At The Right Time.

Do not take this all for granted.

Before Bitcoin was invented, for thousands of years of human history, there simply was nothing like it. There was no truly, provably scarce asset.

There will never be an oppor­tu­nity like this again. It’s only avail­able now in the 21st century.

The number of new Bitcoin just gets smaller all the time.

By 2032 there will be less than one Bitcoin mined every ten minutes.

By 2044, less than one bitcoin per hour.

And by 2060 less than one per day. That’s for everyone in the whole world!

At the begin­ning of the 22nd century, between the years 2100 and 2104, the total Bitcoin that will be mined will be 1.25 BTC. That’s not every ten minutes, that’s the total over the entire four-year period!

How much longer do you think people are going to be “selling” their bitcoins for in exchange for a money that has trillions of units created at ever-increasing rates?

So don’t miss your oppor­tu­nity to make a historic purchase.

History’s Greatest Purchases

There’ve been some other great historic purchases in American history.

Alaska was purchased from Russia for $7.2 million, or two cents an acre.

The Louisiana Purchase cost $15 million and included the entirety of Nebraska, Kansas & Oklahoma and signif­i­cant portions of Montana, Wyoming, Colorado, New Mexico, North Dakota, South Dakota, Texas, Minnesota, Iowa, Missouri, Arkansas and, of course, Louisiana.

It’s no accident that people often refer to Bitcoin as digital real estate. Early adopters of Bitcoin, like you, are staking their claim on the Bitcoin blockchain.

Don’t be Fooled by Knock-offs and Scams

At this extra­or­di­nary moment in history it is absolutely crucial that you not be taken in by one of the oldest tricks in the book.

This scam is extremely widespread. There are endless imita­tors trying to trick you into buying their imita­tion of Bitcoin.

There’s “cheap” tokens which take advan­tage of ‘unit bias’ by creating a supply that ensures they cost just a few cents or dollars per token, but are not Bitcoin. They are not provably limited in supply. They may be avail­able for only a limited time, but that’s not because they’re scarce like Bitcoin. It’s because nobody is going to want them at all soon. They are ‘here today, gone tomorrow’ projects that will vanish when the supply of suckers runs out.

There is, in fact, not a single other project like Bitcoin. Only Bitcoin contains the features neces­sary to operate a truly decen­tral­ized, global, scarce, digital asset that can be sent around the globe in seconds (and these are just a few of its unique qualities).

Only Bitcoin has an anony­mous creator who gave the inven­tion to the world despite the fame, fortune, and power they could have had in return. Only Bitcoin had a creator who vanished, leaving the project uncon­trolled by any person or small group of people.

“Psst, buddy, you wanna buy a watch? It says Rolex on this one hanging from the inside lining of my trench coat. You can have it for $50, even though a real Rolex is 30 grand.”

Only Bitcoin.

Bitcoin is for you precisely because it has no leader to lead you and no one in power to exercise control over you.

Beware of imita­tors. They have leaders who are in control. They want more than just control over your money. They want control over you.

Choose Your Own Adventure

Recall the regretful story at the start of this article about the kids asking their grand­fa­ther about the times we live in now. Consider this alter­nate ending:

“Grandpa, what about you? Did you buy real Bitcoin with pretend, made up money?” asked the children, their curious eyes wide open.

Grandpa was old now. He was no longer the strong young man he’d been in his prime. But at this question, he seemed to suddenly grow younger. His neck straight­ened. His gaze focused. He stood up taller and straighter than they remem­bered in their whole lives. And when he spoke, his voice rang with a clarity and convic­tion they’d never heard from him.

“Kids!” He said, boldly and confi­dently, and also with just a hint of a chuckle. “In those days, I stacked Bitcoin every chance I got. I stacked when I got paid. I stacked when I sold invest­ments. I stacked when the price crashed and I stacked when it mooned. I stacked when Bitcoin was under attack and I stacked when hundreds of millions of people were buying.

“I was a Bitcoiner! Full on. I didn’t care whether people laughed at the idea or insulted me. I didn’t panic when they tried to scare us, and I didn’t waver when they tried to stop us. I knew that the future was going to be bright for those of us who had Bitcoin. I knew we would be able to make life beautiful and safe and fulfilling, for ourselves and for the people we loved and cared about. I knew we would be able to protect and preserve the things that mattered most to us.

“So you better believe I bought real Bitcoin with my dollars. I started saving for my future, for your parents’ future and for your future even though you weren’t going to be born for decades to come.

“And now, today, look at all we have. All the wonderful choices of where to spend our time, what to do with it, who to spend it with. Bitcoiners forever kids! Bitcoiners forever.”

Grandpa looked back down at the kids and he saw admira­tion in their faces — the admira­tion of a hero. In that moment he knew it had all been worth it. That every­thing he had done, he had done to make a beautiful future for them.

Make Yer Choice

Every day you get to choose between buying Bitcoin and passing on it. It is a choice offered to you only because you live in this narrow window in history where the choice exists.

It wasn’t avail­able twelve years ago, and it probably won’t be avail­able in another couple of dozen.

So what choice will you make?
