Tl;dr – I'm just a nobody who wants to thank /u/andreasma for teaching me the why of Bitcoin and crypto in general. Please consider supporting him through Patreon (aantonop).
If you are new to Bitcoin and the incredible world of crypto – Welcome! Relax, hodl, enjoy your profits, and look up the guy below.
If you're a veteran enthusiast – You already know
If you have ever struggled to excitedly tell someone what Bitcoin actually is, or a blockchain, or a ledger, or a decentralized exchange, or why this entire movement is going to change the world – It's probably because you heard it from Andreas but didn't explain it in the level of detail he did. If you were like me you were gushing about how this one thing could allow money to freely flow between borders, currencies and governments, while avoiding cartels of all kinds. How banking itself is a privilege, and the unbanked population is a number larger than imagination for anyone in an elite economy. How he stood up to Roger Ver shaming him with nothing more than an actual use case for Bitcoin (look it up, and fuck you Roger). You were optimistic about the future of crypto and why it is even important.
I won't make this long. Just wanted to express my sincere gratitude for everything you've done and continue to do Andreas. You taught me not only about crypto, but about money. The good, bad, and ugly of it all.
I would be humbled if even one person signed up to support him on Patreon because of this.
