Happy 10th Birthday Bitcoin

Bitcoin is 10 years old today.

Hundreds of obituaries. Dozens of rage quitting economists. $Trillion+ transacted.

10 years of a decentralized uncensorable currency available to anyone, anywhere. Even if you don’t agree with the power it brings, you can no longer ignore it. It’s here to stay, and will change everything. Its impact will be huge.

Happy birthday Bitcoin, you red-pilling, hope-giving, savage son of a gun! You are one of the most important steps towards freedom that we’ve seen in the last 100 years.

The first Bitcoin block was mined on January 3rd, 2009.

Bitcoin Poem for a June morning

Bitcoin
Dropping like a dot com stock
Made by a computer jock
Smarter than Mr. Spock
Boat’s leaving the dock
Shock

Sexier than your wife
Sharper than a knife
Heavier than gold
Underbought not oversold
Hold
