    Thanks, Justine. Extremely intelligent questions. As I watched your interviews, I couldn't help but injecting "great question". I don't believe in Bitcoin because I think that the governments won't give up their power to print money.

    Justine, I hope you will answer question: why Bitcoin vs any other crypto money?

    Really cool series of interviews, thanks for putting this together! It amazes me how so many people out there don't see the need to hold both gold & bitcoin as a hedge, independent of their convictions about each asset. If bitcoin fails, you still have gold. If bitcoin de-thrones gold, you have bitcoin.

      Bitcoin can't de-throne gold, it's an impossibility, It's kind of like saying "I hope the light bulb displaces the sun." BTC is a protocol, a software, not a hardware. It carries internal risks based on complex systems. Gold is a noble metal that does not decay, the "ultimate structural stability" - like the sun. BTC has a dev team that can form disagreements and lead to what are called "forks", splitting into different protocols - the outcome of which is always unknown and fraught with systemic risk (remember, it's software). BTC also lacks secure scaling, it requires side chains in order to become transactional on a larger scale, these side chains open up a whole new set of risks. I'm not advocating for or against, but the two investments are not remotely similar. Those who sell the theory of BTC as a Store of Value, simply don't understand the inherent systemic risks, or they choose to ignore it for ideological reasons.

    Hopefully, some of the quests will discuss how they actually invest in Bitcoin. One mentioned using a Hedge Fund manager, but that's not a universal option. Since it's not investable on platforms such as Schwab, Fidelity, e-Trade, etc, I think the element of real world how-to trade would be a worthwhile addition.

      Use a wasabi wallet, hold you own keys & run a full node. Do not use Coinbase, be a first class Bitcoin citizen and not a third class, meaning hold your own money and verify the truth through your own node. Wasabi wallet: download Bitcoin core software to run a full node: Coinbase looks a lot more pretty and slick, but behind the sweet UX hides fascism and behind the rigid wasabi hides freedom! Your choice my brother!
