Don’t Give Investors What They Want

If a seed investor says to come back when you have traction, it means you aren’t telling a good story. Investors want to see a compelling vision they can believe in, that they know other people will believe in too.

Quotes

There’s never been a better time to get into bitcoin on a risk-adjusted basis. So much infrastructure and education has come online over the past 18 months. We have an incredible entry point.
Right now there’s an estimated 7 million people around the globe that own $100 or more worth of bitcoin. We are going to try to create 21 million newcoiners with $100 dollars or more.
The biggest mistake people make when they’re in a hole is trying to take it out in one swing. Get on a program where you’re consistently paying down your debt every month. Your positive momentum will feed on itself and is likely to open doors for making more money so you can pay down even faster, and get back to saving and investing for your future.
It just didn’t seem like there was a solution until Bitcoin, because Bitcoin affects and fixes so many different things and settles so many different arguments, and it just opens up such a great bright orange future.
I’ve never been motivated to work harder, recruit more people, to save more people in the Bitcoin lifeboat. We are all here at the beginning of the Bitcoin Renaissance, and it’s more incumbent upon us than ever to recruit people to the cause and get them building, and get them working, and get them buying, get them holding, get them figuring out how to spend, how to store.
Swan Bitcoin exists to basically right wrongs done to Bitcoiners.
We’re in a position now with out-of-control money printing that our Founding Fathers thought would make the country fail.
In a complex system like a society you only need a small number of people to be totally dedicated to a cause or not accept an alternative to flip an entire society to their way of thinking.
One’s propensity to store value in the Bitcoin protocol is directly correlated to understanding. So Bitcoin marketing is just Bitcoin education.
I have dedicated my life to recruiting the other 99% of our intransigent Bitcoiner minority here in the United States. There are 100,000 of us already. We want to recruit the other 9.9 million.
Adoption dominates all other prior­i­ties for Bitcoin.
