We live in a world of what should be rather than what is.
The creation of more money shouldn’t cause inflation.
Inflation should be transitory.
Bitcoin shouldn’t work.
Proof of stake should be better than proof of work.
Crypto should be the future of blockchain tech. We should be able to trust the central bank…
Things can always be better, but nothing can ever be perfect.
Bitcoin isn’t perfect. But it IS working.
Perhaps people should value me, you and everyone else for who we are, but in reality, value IS backed by work.
There are certain things about human nature that will never change to a ‘should‘ (at least in our lifetime).
This is partially why fiat money and even gold would forever be stuck in the same cycle.
Much of crypto is a ‘should‘ running face first into what is.
Bitcoin is working because it’s based on cold hard reality.
Crypto should work because it’s based on how we wish the world were. And then the ‘is‘ rug pulls the ‘should‘. Literally.
Stop trying to fix human nature.
Stop trying to fix Bitcoin.
Focus on making the world better, focus on building upon the Bitcoin foundations. But don’t waste your time trying to push back waves. Reality will always win. The truth will always win.
Buying low and selling high should work… except it doesn’t for pretty much everyone. This is why we recommend auto-saving Bitcoin. It’s far less exciting, but it is proven to be the most effective way to save sound money over time.
