3. Can Bitcoin be a cure for anxiety
The Reddit user that shared this bitcoin story was depressed and paranoid. He started his bitcoin story:
“A heavy interest in politics and economics combined with a public education can do this to people. I have wondered about the current public education machines… Why are things done the wrong way? It’s the 21st century and we live in the richest country in the world.”
Then Bitcoin came to be, but the user wasn’t really sure about Bitcoin’s potential at the time. But eventually, Bitcoin made it to the hearth of the Reddit user:
“If you truly believe in the core principles of Bitcoin then the free market must be pretty darn important to you. If you really believe like I do that the free market is the most powerful modern improvement to our lives, there will be no need for violence of any kind. Bitcoin is vastly superior to anything else on the market today and it can adapt as fast as we need it to, so Bitcoin will win!… It’s time for me to execute plan B. I announced my intentions to completely embrace cryptocurrencies and to cut myself from the fiat currency world. I will pay my bills in Bitcoins, I will get paid in Bitcoins, I will invest in the cryptocurrency and will secure my own Bitcoin investments.”
I guess that the potential of the free market and the revolutionary technology that challenges the status quo brought life and happiness back to the depressed Reddit user. The opportunities that blockchain technology and cryptocurrencies bring are enormous and you don’t have to be an early adopter to notice them. Also there is no age restriction for cryptocurrencies. If someone tells you that only millennials can understand and participate in the industry, well the next story from the bitcoin stories list will prove that it’s not like that.
4. There is no age restriction for cryptocurrencies
A Reddit user shared his story when he was 65 years old. Before that, he purchased his first Bitcoin when they were just 6$ and was completely won by the power of cryptocurrencies. He said:
“I believe that Bitcoin is the future. I also know that it is the greatest technology ever developed that empowers freedom. I am also excited to see the progress and development in the cryptocurrency industry. It feels great to live in such a time in history and is very empowering to see the impact of the technology on young people and how they think. I hope to see a better version of freedom in my lifetime”
An interesting thought is that freedom will not be won with revolution, violence or protesting. It will not be delivered by politicians or organizations, but rather it will evolve with the evolution of technology and the free market. Blockchain technology and cryptocurrencies have made a strong impact on the world, but the scale in which they did will be felt in time.
