We need to buy Bitcoin like our life depends on it … because it does!

With institutional actors just beginning to realize the value of Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies this the time to be bold.

Since the COVID-19 Pandemic began, United States billionaires have nearly doubled their money while more than 73 million people have lost their jobs, and are now struggling to get by. Recent events, including a widespread power outage in Texas during a particularly frosty cold spell, wildfires in California and abhorrent disaster relief efforts in Puerto Rico after the island was hit by Hurricane Maria in Sept. 2017, have called into question the ability and willingness of governments, even powerful ones, to mitigate the effects of natural disasters that have increased in frequency and intensity.

The planet is crying out for us to stop polluting it! As we enter an uncertain, volatile future, one where political and business leaders care for nothing more than lining their own pockets, it can feel hopeless at times. It can feel like the game is rigged against us. And, if I can be honest with you, I believe it is.

We don’t have to look for a grand Rothschilds-, World Bank-, Third Foundation-type conspiracy. The proof is all around us, out in the open. In the recent “GameStop fiasco”, which laid bare the greed of investors and speculative nature of the market. In the way the educational system is failing our children. In the homelessness. The dystopian wage slavery. The inequality.

Quite frankly, we’re being squeezed to death — suffocated, if you will — while some are selling us out for profit.

Ultimately, if conditions do not change, we could, sooner or later, be witness to a wholesale political collapse. The acceleration of climate change, resulting rise in sea levels and increasing natural disasters will likely put even more stress on existing governments and institutions. According to projections, costal cities around the world could be under feet of water, essentially uninhabitable, as soon as 2040. It is likely we will see mass migrations and increasing tension over natural resources. As governments become more unstable, the threat of nuclear war and violent crackdown become more likely. As a result of these factors, as well as the rise of artificial intelligence and bio-technological augmentation, humankind is set to face what may be the greatest threat ever to our existence.

In a future where the significance of national governments will wane in the face of rapidly changing geography and mass migrations, Bitcoin is ahead in the conversation of what currency will emerge as the value of fiat money continues to decline.

It is also an opportunity. An opportunity to move forward. Closer to a sustainable, equitable and just society. To see the greatest redistribution of wealth in our lifetime. With institutional actors just beginning to realize the value of Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies, as they continue to surge, this the time to be bold.

In this uncertain future, cryptocurrencies will undoubtedly play a part. Tesla recently bought $1.5 billion worth of Bitcoin and announced the company would start accepting payment in the cryptocurrency soon. Miami Mayor Francis Suarez also just announced the municipality is looking into paying city workers and accepting taxes and fees in Bitcoin. Last but certainly not least, just a couple days ago, BlackRock, the world’s largest asset manager with more than $8.6 trillion in holdings, announced the company would “start to dabble” in Bitcoin.

It is likely that, as more and more companies and governments get on board, Bitcoin will not only become more widely accepted but also skyrocket in value. In a future where the significance of national governments will wane in the face of rapidly changing geography and mass migrations, Bitcoin is ahead in the conversation of what currency will emerge as the value of fiat money continues to decline. Not only is cryptocurrency a good investment, but the potential for great reward is high as well (a friend i’ve been speaking with on the matter believes 1 Bitcoin could be valued as high as $150,000-200,000 by December). Bitcoin has already made millionaires and there’s no indication that a few more early investors won’t hit the jackpot. (Full disclosure: I invest in Bitcoin, Ethereum, Litecoin and a handful of other cryptocurrencies valued between five cents and 35 dollars a coin)

In order for us to have a fair shot in the world to come, we need to stake our claim now!

BILLIONAIRES ARE NOT GOING TO GIVE UP THEIR MONEY. And, it’s time to stop begging for the scraps! We need to flip the script somehow. This could be a massive boon for the masses, a way to relieve some of the financial stress we’re all under. To claim our piece of the pie before they wise up. To have them working for us! I encourage you to invest in a brighter future, one where we band together and say “we’re not gonna take it, anymore!” This can be achieved TODAY.

My goal, in preparing for this volatile future? Accumulate as much crypto as I can get my hands on in the next year or so. Hold the coin as more people come on board. Yes, of course, the rich have more to spend, (and they won’t be far behind the institutional investors, so we can’t hesitate!) but we have strength in numbers. Anyone with five dollars can purchase Bitcoin today. All you have to do is download an app like Coinbase, where you can buy and sell dozens of cryptocurrencies.

As inflation continues, and will likely increase as the rich attempt to maintain their dominance of the monetary supply, alternative, secure and finite currencies such as Bitcoin will only continue to rise in value.

Of course, the movement toward intellectual, emotional and bodily sovereignty does not end with tradeable currency. However, in order for us to have a fair shot in the world to come, we need to stake our claim now. If we can gain even the slightest bit of freedom during this reorganization, we will be in that much better position to take the next step.
