Bitcoins! Get Yer Bitcoins! Get ’em While You Can
The 'Window of Oppurtunity' to buy Bitcoin closes a little more every single day.
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 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.
This offer is available for a limited time only, and supplies arestrictly limited.”
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 or how much energy they put into mining Bitcoin, that number will not go up.
Third, the output of those mines — every last of them — will 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!
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, different, and 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 a price for very much longer!”
Nearly everyone 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. The more that people realize just how scarce Bitcoin is, the more they will 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, there simply was nothing like it for thousands of years of human history. 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 will be “selling” their Bitcoins in exchange for money that has trillions of units created at ever-increasing rates?
So don’t miss your opportunity to make a historic purchase.
There’ve been some other great historical 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 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.
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.
Endless imitators are trying to trick you into buying their imitation of Bitcoin.
There are “cheap” tokens that 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.”
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.
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.
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 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 the future would be bright for those of us who had Bitcoin. I knew we could make life beautiful, safe, and fulfilling for ourselves and the people we loved and cared about. I knew we could 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, and 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. At 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.
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?
