Why do I bother trying to EDUCATE here about BITCOIN?Submitted by happygeorge on Wed, 11/28/2012 - 21:11
Allow me to tell you my short personal story with Bitcoin. If Ron Paul supporters embraced this libertarian alternative to the Federal Reserve and International Banking Cartels the citizens of the world would be free of their enslavement to the banking system, a freedom which they surrendered many hundreds of years ago to the money changers. We could be even more at the forefront of the change that is coming! We now have a tool to use to take take back our free right to an honest monetary system. I wish to start a positive thread on Bitcoin here on the DailyPaul! :)
I really think it is all about EDUCATION! That is why I am posting so much about bitcoin here... I actually don't care so much about educating everybody all over the world, I am really not one of those "do gooders" on a personal level... it really doesn't matter to me how many people "catch on" here, but I LOVE the Daily Paul so much, I thought I would do my little bit to "educate" those who are ready for it. I learned so much from you all, I know this is information that has to be spread here.
Interestingly enough, I found out about Bitcoins RIGHT HERE, while reading comments to a post (that was back in March 2011) Bitcoins were $0.30 each, and because of complicated distractions at the time, I didn't bother to just go and INVEST in it a few hundred dollars (which I wanted to) at the time... so I ended up missing that boat completely!
I did buy 10 of 'em through www.coinPal.com (this was a service that offered easy purchase of bitcoins using paypal) by the time I got around to spending time figuring out whether it is better to mine them or if it would be better to buy them, Coinpal was shut down! (Paypal actually stopped allowing purchases of Bitcoin!) :)
Anyhow, I just hope folks here learn about it, and get onboard if they want to before it goes up to... well, who knows where it will skyrocket to...
Lemme tell you though, I am sure the "skyrocketting" has not happened, yet!
IT IS COMING SOON! :)
