A once-in-a-lifetime opportunity... every four years.

Before Bitcoin came around anyone would have told us that the opportunity to x10 our money in a relatively short period of time is a once in a lifetime opportunity that would require a lot of vision, research, and more importantly: luck.

With Bitcoin, this once a lifetime opportunity is now the standard, and the pattern keeps repeating itself over and over again. Unfortunately, many are so consumed by the day to day volatility that they can't see the forest from the trees.

And you can't smell your own shit on your knees.

It's not cha fault that you're always wrong
The weak ones are there to justify the strong.

Well, that escalated quickly.

There is so much information out there. Wrongful and otherwise. Propaganda. Hopium. Technical specifications. Impossible white papers. Ethereum killers. Money money money money money.

This emergent economy is something the likes of which the world has never seen. Flat-architecture is leveling the playing field for all parties involved. We are creating a new system that's more fair for everyone. However, many of the same toxic strategies of wealth-building are still highly effective.

The worms will live in every host
It's hard to pick which one they hate the most
The horrible people, the horrible people
It's all anatomic as the size of your steeple
Capitalism has made it this way
Old-fashioned fascism will take it away

Fear rules the world.

Be it FUD or FOMO, the masses get constantly tricked into gifting their money to the sharks no matter how fair the underlying system becomes. None of this matters if we don't start teaching people to more properly manage their money. Citizens will lose money when the market is down, and they will lose money when the market is up as well (winner's tilt).

We have a tendency to make stupid decisions when we have what we consider to be "disposable income". The thing about Bitcoin is that there is no such thing as disposable income until you've made it through an entire 4-year cycle. This new system requires us to be planning at least 4 years in advance and hedging moves in every direction so our finances are safely secured.

The veil is being pulled back.

Turns out the "wizard" of OZ was just some guy behind a curtain. Nothing special about him at all really. One thing is becoming certain: central banks have been siphoning these x10 gains into their own pocket and leaving very little for everyone else; just enough to keep the legacy system operational. Just enough to build as much value as possible. Capitalism is nothing but predictable.

Inefficiency of greed

This new cooperative economy is anything but predictable. Who knows what will happen 10 or 20 years down the line. Until now, these systems of greed have cannibalized themselves to an extreme. Before the central banks, it was kings and queens (royalty) taking all the spoils for themselves and the peasants with nothing.

Now an 8th grader can be a central bank. Mark my words: children will become billionaires, and no one is going to understand the new system: not even the people who benefit the most from it.

Hey, you, what do you see?
Something beautiful or something free?
Hey, you, are you trying to be mean?
If you live with apes, man, it's hard to be clean

Merry Christmas, ya filthy animals.

And a happy new year.


Bitcoin Doubling Curve

Yet another reminder...

That now is the safest time to buy Bitcoin, quite possibly moreso than when it was trading at $10k or even $4k. We are in a mega-bubble year during the safest time of the yearly-cycle to buy. Number go up.

Again, even though BTC is only worth like $17k at the baseline hardcore support, that doesn't really matter. History tells us that we will go up up up up until the mega-bubble is at max capacity. x3.5 the doubling curve isn't even close. Think x10-x15.

By the time this bubble deflates the curve will be above $50k, so even at these jacked up prices it's still worth buying more: and the corporations know it. They want your Bitcoin; don't let them have it until we get to those x10-x15 levels. You can thank me later.

Let's neutralize the palate of Marilyn Manson.

kek...

Even when Bitcoin was trading between $4k and $10k, the price didn't matter and the message was the same: You basically only need 1 BTC to "make it". Now that BTC is $60k this fact is much more clear. If we have proper money management skillz and good enough security, we're basically set for life with 1 BTC. The doubling curve shows no signs of stopping as the central banks can no longer siphon value out of it with their money printing and ridiculous derivatives.

Derivatives used to be necessary. How in the world could someone trade precious metals over the Internet without them? Now we have currency at the foundation controlled by no one. All other digital assets are obsolete in this respect. Solving the Byzantine Generals problem was a legitimate miracle.

Conclusion

Don't buy a lambo.
Lambos are dumb.
Secure your freedom.
We will have many chances to do so.
But the sooner we free ourselves the sooner we can free others.

I find this article extremely educative, broadening my understanding of Bitcoin. Thanks for the great efforts you put into this.

There's one VERY simple strategy to fight fear and volatility. If you believe in on the long run just dollar cost average... I've bought bitcoin at 20K and at 4K, the trick is taking emotion out of the equation, lay your plan and stay consistence.
It Baffles me who people don't realise how easy investing can be, it's boring but it grants great rewards without the emotional rollercoaster.

Did I forget to talk about DCA? lol
was def thinking about it while writing

Yep yep it consistent wins as a strategy. I was think it while reading the article too.

Love the optimism. 1 BTC to change my life huh?? Cool!

Just being here is probably enough.

"Just being here" as in just being on Hive?

These are interesting times, dips are beginning to excite me, especially of projects I particularly follow. If I had a lot of cash reserve, I think I'll make a killing out of buying lows and selling highs...the patterns are almost obvious. Lord help me not to get carried away.🙏🙏🙏

I've made some stupid decisions also and lost BTC and funbox USD on the way, years back.

Good post. Genuine and open!

Thank you for telling it like it is!

Very strategic content and at the same time good advice. Even no some children are a millionaire when today's world is just a beginning of a new era of money. How much more later. How I wish I can buy Bitcoin as what you said today is the safest to buy.

Well for sure you are right, that the opportunities to x10 your money have increased since the rise of Bitcoin.
However, I would not all in Bitcoin at the moment - but maybe that's just my risk-averse being.

Where is the limit for the BTC Price? Only future can tell that! Let's see!

1 BTC is great but my goal is grab as much as I can while it’s still faitly possible! For counties like mine where it’s close to a million a coin in our currency it’s slowly slipping into impossible territory for a retail investor

If I can bag another 2 I’d be stoked and then I’ll be happy to go and speculate with the rest of my fiat

There will be a great opportunity to get more when we're at the peak of the next mega-bubble and every alt is outperforming BTC.

When is your prediction of that?

Freedom is what so many people have in mind. Hopefully many will succeed getting to that spot

I’m sorry I skimmed the article but the Guns n Roses bit made me stop, smile and laugh. Then repeat.

Hey @edicted, here is a little bit of BEER from @jackofcrows for you. Enjoy it!

Thanks for making crypto content less lame.

Disclaimer: Off-color humor alert. The above line is only a joke.

A post made around an audio track, why not.
I swear you wrote this in 19 minutes.
Not that I disagree with you.
Have you calculated your hourly wage here? No including curation rewards or comments, just your post payouts divided by how many minutes they took? :P
Cuz I have a feeling you don't need to "invest". You could already have a lucrative career in posting stuff like this.

Eh you'd be surprised how long it takes me even when half the words are copy paste. Not like I can just choose to work more hours for more pay either. Diminishing returns.

Okay, but I mean, $100 a day at the very least, for a few hours of typing.
And that's not likely to go down. It's very likely to go up, perhaps a lot.
At some point that's going to pay the bills...

So true to the core

yeah, it's crazy alright. Free money... makes you think about money and value and how the system is rigged to favor the ones with a lot of capital. Making 100k from 1 mil is super easy, yet making 100k from a 9 to 5 Job is super hard and will take you years. That doesn't sound fair to me. But I guess crypto for the first time has the power of bringing that power to the "common" people. But then again, it takes years of understanding cryptos and learning from mistakes. Nevertheless, it presents an opportunity!

1 BTC to a 1 million:).

1 BTC is a big goal of mine. It won't be straight away but i will keep DCA every week and keep stacking alts. Eventually that will turn into 1 BTC for the future.

"This emergent economy is something the likes of which the world has never seen."

True @edicted. Combine that with what else?

Human nature. In all of its uhhh ... "glory" ... it is not at all new. Ancient in fact ... And what do we get when we combine these two "fundamentals?" We are living it out now. And your post touches on that ...

You and I live at a remarkable time in human history. I've told my beloved lifemate that I am personally glad I am experiencing it later in life. Can't imagine going through all of this as a younger man, due to whatever discernment I might now have vs. what I know I had then ...

"But the sooner we free ourselves the sooner we can free others."

We'll see soon enough! 👋

Secure your freedom - Rightly said and I guess Crypto can help you big time to do it

Freedom is not free.

Maybe the price is 1 BTC, or 0.1 Btc?

Eventually everyone will embrace it and the late joiners will always have this feeling why did they not think about it a little earlier.

Lambos are dumb.
Plus, it will eat the dust behind Tesla roadster.

Something silly, while reading the Bitcoin Doubling Curve, in my mind was saying "Wait! , aren't those memory values? 1GB, 2GB, 4GB, ... , 512GB???" 🤣🤣🤣
