I am no Bitcoin expert. I read the papers on how it works (years ago) and some news from media outlets I trust (definitely not Bloomberg and CNN). And that’s about it. I do not mine. I do not trade. I have yet to done my first Bitcoin transaction.
The idea of having a non-centralized, unregulated currency fascinates me.
Large banks, developed countries, and wolves from Wall Streets (Goldman Sachs might set a new stage for Bitcoin exchange) might not love it because that means end of world control and currency exploitation over smaller developing countries.
This epic article reminds me of my early days (which is already 10 years ago!) when I quitted my day job. It's hard to explain why we are working 80 hours a week to escape that 40-work-hours day job. If you are considering quitting or starting a new venture right now – this is a good read.
