They didn't BURN the money, they USED it!

The dollars the early adopters got from me and others went to paying their bills, buying food, and LIVING while DEVELOPING a great new IDEA!

Remember, remember the 5th of November!(?)

..i mean the donation drive event... well it was/is kinda like that, all the work that needs/needed to be done to develop bitcoin needed hours and hours of programming by a bunch of programmer, and entrepreneurs. They got their BOOST of financing when Bitcoin shot up to $30!

Basically, if they sold at that time, even a small portion of their holdings, they could have freed themselves enough to devote 100% of their time and energy to develop more Bitcoin tools... it is genious the way the system was setup to help SELF SUSTAIN and DEVELOP without any central "investor" or "financier". It grew organically, and it still is!

That is one of the beautiful aspects of the whole thing...for me!

Just plain 'Happy'about the direction the world is taking! Especially if we live to reach LEV [Longevity Escape Velocity]
