For this episode of Bitcoin Magazine“Meet The Taco Plebs” was joined by The Littlest Bitcoin Boomer (@littlesthodler), an optimistic pleb with stacking.
We started this interview by looking at the history of The Littlest Bitcoin Boomer and delving into what brought him to Bitcoin. Littlest shares that he went through a difficult period in his life, made bad decisions and was dishonest. Then he found Bitcoin and his life was 180. He shared how Bitcoin changed him and why Bitcoin strengthened good habits. He jumped on Twitter to look for more discussions about Bitcoin, found the plebs, and joined in. I want to say that the taco plebs are like a pack of wolves. The wolves take care of and take care of each other while defending themselves against and attacking any threat that exists.
Littlest also shared some of his insights into what is going on in Canada, with the $ 2,000 monthly stimulus checks and its “shaky liberal government.”
He then shared how he loves Bitcoin’s equality and why it’s great. He stated that everyone stacks the sats they deserve. It’s another form of proof of work where you earn fiat (or bitcoin direct) and then buy bitcoin and buy HODL. It’s up to you how much effort you put into stacking, and no one has an advantage over you. Everyone plays by the same rules and nobody can change that. It is now up to the individual to stack as much as he wants.
We’ll go into the importance of rules, not rulers, for Bitcoin. We talked about how Bitcoin improves the playing field and why I think the plebs will dominate in the future. Why? Because they are hardworking, smart and passionate people who do what is best for us and Bitcoin. That conversation made me really bullish, and I know it will make you bullish too.
Below are some of Littlest’s most interesting thoughts shared during the interview. See the full episode for more information.
How did you find Bitcoin and fall into the rabbit hole?
The short version is, a series of bad life choices a few years ago set me on a path where I was slowly realizing that I wasn’t going to get my life where I wanted it and wasn’t going to offer the life that my wife had and deserve children. Poor self-discipline and no financial knowledge set me on a path to ruin that affected my relationships, which came to a head in 2018. I met with council members (mentally and financially) and got my expenses under control and it was amazing how quickly my mental health turned around – things got better.
As I started moving forward in life, I started thinking about the future, which led me to learn more about bitcoin and some altcoins. I’ve always been a technician, so I knew about Bitcoin, but when I jumped into Bitcoin Twitter and YouTube, I opened my eyes to how corrupt the fiat system was and what it would be like if I didn’t keep my money in a safe place Place would drop when I turned my life around or not when my savings were worth $ 0. Like many others, I’ve gotten into a few alts under this get-rich-quick mentality, but after a few months of podcasts, articles, etc., it was clear that the vision of Bitcoin is vital and that has it to something Made special different from the shitcoins.
I dumped my bags in bitcoin and have been a maximalist ever since. I was very lucky, but some people have told me it’s strange that I could get in during a bear market when the hype is low. What made a enormously The difference, and I cannot emphasize this enough, was the imminent halving. While I like the “NGU Tech” memes as much as everyone else, the halving events are the best time to learn about Bitcoin from the outside as the chatter focuses on the “why” of halving and why those events are Bitcoin make the best money the world has ever known.
How has Bitcoin changed your life?
This is explained in a thread I did a few weeks ago that seemed to really resonate with people. The biggest way Bitcoin changed my life is simple: if you hope for the future, you can escape nihilism and become who you are supposed to be. At one point I came to the conclusion that Bitcoin is the only thing that will save us from corrupt governments and disastrous Bundesbank guidelines I was involved in this revolutionIt allowed me to keep focusing on myself and my relationships and kept me from returning to bad habits that threatened to destroy the life I wanted to have. If you have hope for the future, work hard to keep the future bright. Bitcoin did that for me.
What is the most amazing thing about Bitcoin for you?
Equal rights. You can reference 1,000 ways the Fiat system stacked up against ordinary people. Call it the Cantillon Effect, nepotism, elitism, whatever, even if we are lucky enough to be born into a middle class in a western country, so many things about our system are piled against us. With the hard cap of 21 million coins, ordinary people have the chance to become part of a system that doesn’t care whether people were born millionaires, have a parent who runs a central bank, or millionaire athletes. Grab your Sats and HODL, and Bitcoin’s deflationary rules will keep your wealth growing.
What are you most looking forward to in the Bitcoin space?
I look forward to new businesses and services being built by people in the bitcoin space. Sure, it’s cool that PayPal and Visa are coming into play, but it’s because of their old rules and assumptions that came from a fiat system. Companies like BTCPay, Fold, CryptoCloaks, Privacy Pros, BitPiggy and projects like the Lightning Network are building their models around Bitcoin and using it as a starting point. These are the companies that will stay ahead of the curve with strong community support and great models going into the future. I think my answer is: I look forward to more companies from Bitcoiners for Bitcoiners.
What is your price prediction for the end of 2021 and the end of 2030?
Ah! How can you answer that without being yelled at for being bearish?!?! Since the price flattened a few weeks ago it has moved from $ 73,000 to $ 75,000 here in Canada, so I don’t see it going well over $ 100,000 in The Great White North by the end of 2021 In the year 2030 I can honestly say that I don’t care. It’ll be a foolishly high number, “we told you,” and we’ll all look back with fondness on those days of shit posting on Twitter while smiling softly at nocoiners spending thousands of dollars on a handful of sats.
