Buy Bitcoin To Take Power, Not To Make Money

Bitcoin is not a get-rich-quick scheme.

The price of Bitcoin is now below $54K at the time of writing. This doesn’t shock you anymore, but now Bitcoin’s price is closer to $100K than it is to zero. All of the historical opponents of Bitcoin end up embracing the Bitcoin revolution one by one.

More and more people are realizing (finally) that the Bitcoin Revolution is here to stay. Bitcoin is not a scam or the pointless entertainment of a few geeks. Bitcoin is a true monetary revolution that will change tomorrow’s world for the better.

The record price achieved by Bitcoin is whetting the appetite of a growing number of people. This includes institutional investors, large companies, banks, and now more and more retail investors.

Over the past few days, I have been receiving more and more messages from people wanting to know how to buy Bitcoin. The same people who didn’t believe in Bitcoin when its price was struggling to break through the $10K mark last year are suddenly discovering an interest in the king of digital currency.

On Reddit or Quora, the questions of greedy people are multiplying:

  • How can I make a lot of money quickly with Bitcoin?
  • Is Bitcoin the best way to make money on the Internet?
  • Will the price of Bitcoin continue to rise forever?
  • Will the price of Bitcoin be X in Y years?

I’ll stop there, but you too must have seen this type of question appear more and more often. As a long-time Bitcoiners now, I spend a significant portion of my time trying to educate as many people as possible about how Bitcoin works and what is the why of Bitcoin.

My goal is simply to help as many people as possible understand why Bitcoin is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. My greatest reward as a Bitcoiner is to see that people that I have been able to help understand the value of Bitcoin end up becoming Bitcoiners themselves.

When I see all these questions, I take the time to answer some of them by explaining the good and bad reasons for buying Bitcoin.

If you buy Bitcoin just to get rich, I think you are on the wrong track. The majority of people who do this will never try to figure out why they buy Bitcoin. These people act only because of a FOMO (Fear Of Missing Out) feeling that is developing more and more. These people will not be convinced by the Bitcoin revolution. At the slightest sudden 30% drop in price, these people will sell their BTC in panic.

This happened in 2018, and it will happen again sooner or later.

Bitcoin is a NgU technology, but to take advantage of it, you need to have the patience to become a Bitcoin HODLer no matter what. This can only be done if you have total confidence in the Bitcoin revolution. This confidence can only be gained through learning.

You must understand that Bitcoin is not about money. Bitcoin is about power. Bitcoin was created to give back to the people the power regarding money. It is not for nothing that I keep repeating that Bitcoin is the money of the people supported by the people. This is a pure truth.

When you buy Bitcoin, you are voting for a fairer system. You are voting for a peaceful revolution that seeks to return money power to each and every one of its users.

So Bitcoin is not the best way to make money on the Internet as some people believe. The greed of some people will end up costing them a lot of money. In the world of Bitcoin, your greed is your biggest enemy. If you want to make money on the Internet, create a startup or produce content that brings value to as many people as possible.

With the money you earn on the Internet, you can then buy Bitcoin to protect the fruits of your labor from the ravages of monetary inflation in a way that is resistant to censorship.

Bitcoin offers you three fundamental freedoms that allow you to live your life on your own terms: the freedom to receive BTC, the freedom to send BTC, and the freedom to HODL BTC. With Bitcoin, you are the only master on board as long as you own the private keys associated with your BTC.

To achieve this level of sovereignty, you must avoid buying BTC via PayPal or banks. The latter will lock you back into a system similar to today’s system which is flawed and not fixable.

So beware of those actors who seek to steal the Bitcoin revolution from the people. In order for the Bitcoin Revolution to continue to belong to the people, you must become a Bitcoin HODLer no matter what. Don’t give up your BTC at the slightest drop in price. Institutional players will be happy to buy them from you because they have a better long-term vision than weak hands that sell out of fear.

Final Thoughts

If you want to regain power over the fruits of your labor, you are absolutely right to buy Bitcoin. Bitcoin is the best savings technology in the world. The price of Bitcoin is constantly rising due to the weakness of fiat currencies. The most important thing for you is to accumulate as much BTC as possible to protect your wealth from the injustice of the current system.

Once this power is regained, you will understand that only one number matters in the world of Bitcoin: the number of BTC you own.

As long as you keep this in mind, you will be able to detach yourself from the daily charts of Bitcoin’s price evolution. You will continue to accumulate Bitcoin in DCA (Dollar-Cost Averaging) mode so that you can enjoy your future as you wish.

This is the power that Bitcoin gives you. It’s up to you to use it wisely and not give in to greed.
