I've been doing a lot of research and learning about cryptocurrencies, specifically Bitcoin.

Honestly, I completely ignored it over the past few years, even when it kinda blew up in 2018. I thought it was a fad.

But a few things have changed:

  • I have less trust in U.S. gov to manage the economy and the dollar
  • I have less trust in corporations to do the right thing. If Google and Facebook are evil, are the banks not?
  • I have more money (thinking about what could happen to it)
  • Many of the people I look up to are invested heavily in it
  • Bigger financial institutions are starting to take Bitcoin seriously

Right now, it feels like an exciting time, like cryptocurrencies are on the cusp of something big. I can't miss this.
