I venture to say most of us didn’t enter crypto in 2009. But what if we had? I first learned of Bitcoin back somewhere around 2012. But did I do anything about it? No. I had heard of it and I thought well what is the point when I can use fiat? I didn’t realize most cryptocurrency in general is immune to inflation, immutable and peer to peer. Yet when I did learn these things in 2017 it was a daunting task of not only understanding it further but learning how to use it.
I have friends who have similar views. “What’s the point when I can use fiat?”, “Isn’t this dark money?”, “It’s worthless”, “You can’t spend it”, “It isn’t real”. I’m sure most of you have heard similar sentiments. I’d given up in despair believing that if they’re that ignorant then let them fail to reap the benefits of cryptocurrencies. Not only in their appreciation but in their usefulness as well.
There is a certain innate sense of power and freedom when holding private keys. What if someone had given you cryptocurrency back in 2009? Would you cherish that person today who had given you crypto? I think you would. It isn’t about the “I told you so” that is so often pushed in everyone’s face when they finally understand it. It’s about loving those you care about even when they’re so blinded to our governments, mainstream media and banking systems.
They’re lost in a sea of disinformation and lack of knowledge. We were all there at one time. That’s why in the coming weeks I plan to gift those I truly care about with cryptocurrencies. You can simply do it by funding a public address and giving them the private keys to store in a secure place. I urge you to do the same.
As our fiat economies collapse around us they’ll look back with joy and realize you came through for them when no one else could. By doing this not only are we spreading adoption, we’re opening a new door to freedom few understand. Ask not what Safex can do for you – ask what you can do for Safex.
