People new to Bitcoin commonly think that Bitcoin is for crimi­nals. They think it is for hackers, kidnap­pers, and drug-dealers, not for normal people like you and me. This idea arose because Bitcoin was indeed used as currency on an early online drug market­place, called the Silk Road. And it is true that many computer hackers now demand Bitcoin as a ransom payment.

Tell Me About Bitcoin

By Preston Pysh

You know there’s something system­at­i­cally wrong. The world you knew 20 years ago is not what you have today. Guess what, the fiat money, fiscal spending, and infla­tionary monetary policy are causing it. Future bailouts and a further debase­ment of fiat currency will only strengthen this trend because it’s applying more of the same policies that brought us to this point. Bitcoin is the answer to this runaway global policy and broke incen­tive struc­ture.

We are living in hyper­bit­coiniza­tion, a process which is basically repricing the world in Bitcoin. This is because Bitcoin is actually much better than gold as a store of value.

Competing on the sound money front requires an above-all commit­ment to decen­tral­iza­tion and proper­ties that are truly hard to change and attack. Unfor­tu­nately coins cannot compete on this front by virtue of the fact that they are built typically by central­ized teams with a profit motive, and not a happy accident of a slowly growing ecosystem that was built by cypher­punks.

Unlike a stock split, where the resulting shares still refer to the original company, a Bitcoin fork is much more analo­gous to creating new unrelated digital assets out of thin air at zero cost, and gifting them to existing holders of Bitcoin.
