Money

If you don’t believe it or don’t get it, I don’t have the time to try and convince you. I am sorry. - Satoshi Nakamoto

Crypto Currency, The greatest tool we have.

Financial privacy is largely being wiped away across the world, while governments simultaneously destroy the value of our currencies through inflation and sanctions. With the invention of Bitcoin Satoshi Nakamoto gave us what is probably the single greatest tool for freedom in the history of the world. With decentralized crypto currency we have the ability to fix our money and fix the world. While some people believe that all non bitcoin crypto currencies are a scam we do not agree. We believe in competition for all freedom tech. Bitcoin isn’t perfect and shouldn’t be treated as a religion. The best counterpoint to bitcoins imperfection is its inherent lack of privacy and its current difficulty with scaling. Monero provides the best and simplest use case for privacy and is a great alternative to bitcoin. Likewise we believe that other crypto projects may have real utility in pursuing freedom. That being said the crypto industry is absolutely saturated with scams and grifters. As always do your own research and invest carefully. Hold your own keys and continue your journey to being financially sovereign.
