Disclaimer

I strongly believe that every writer, blogger, journalist or reporter should disclaim what their believes and ambitious are. To lead by example, I want to do the same and give you as much information as possible.

Opinions and Sources

All views and opinions stated on this blog are mine and to be treated as such. They're not be treated as financial advise. Any opinions from content provided through interviews, shares or external guests are their own.

It doesn't matter if I publish a review or analyze the current market, I always aim to add link, notes and my sources to the article. If links were removed or sources are missing, don't hesitate to reach out and let me know.

Funding and Holdings

As of March 2022, I'm self funded and intend to stay this way for the foreseeable future. Readers will have the option to donate to my work, obviously by sending some Sats, but shouldn't feel pressured to pay for the content. There might be a premium newsletter on the horizon, however you would be the first to read about this.

In terms of payment, I intend to pay for every trip I take or service I need to do my work. This is how I can be most relatable and give my honest opinion, by paying out of my own pocket. Most of the work I do is either paid in Fiat, BTC, USDC, USDT or the token of the corresponding projects.

The only decentralized currency I hold is BTC. For projects where I get paid in their own tokens, I'll allow to hold them for a short period, but will exchange them into BTC after 12 months. If I were to be given tokens for free, I would disclose it in the article or review.

Political Views

I don't believe in the 'Left or Right' narrative. As this isn't objective. It's heavily depended on where in the world you are. For example, my views on healthcare might be looked at as extreme in the US, but normal in Europe.

Generally speaking, I try to be as moderate as I can. Meaning I always try to listen to both sides of the isle and be as open as possible to different views. There might be times where I agree with a more conservative view and other times where I agree with a more liberal view. I try to look at politics from a present standpoint and decided what's best for me at that given moment.

I oppose a government heavy society, where no individuality has room. However, on the other end, I think certain rules have to apply. I don't oppose constitutions or laws, but I look at them as incentives and not as the holy grail. We need a framework to operate in. Otherwise you would find yourself in total anarchy.

In economical terms, I'm a strong believer in an open market and think government should be there to aid that market, not hinder it. Everyone should have the ability to look after themselves and make their own decisions. Whether they're up to this task, is a totally different question. But at least they would have the option.

Bitcoin Maximalism

As a Bitcoiner, I have to address this. Whenever I speak of Bitcoin Maximalism, most people think of narcissistic, shouting idiots on Twitter. You've seen them for sure, the ones who call everything else but Bitcoin a shitcoin and argue with other maxis for days.

I don't identify with that kind of 'maximalism'. I use Bitcoin as an education platform. Whether I show it to a friend or family member, I always utilize it as something apolitical. Bitcoin has no central entity, like a company or CEO. It's the result of a vibrant community worldwide, who's contributing to it by HODLing BTC or running a full node.

Most maxis abuse Bitcoin with their aggressive stand. We all have the goal of orange pilling everyone around us, but there are different ways of going on about this. I believe in Bitcoin as an ecosystem and try to educate as many people as I can, however not everyone shares my opinion. Some folks have to look at it from a different ecosystem.

My upbringing was very simple: Respect the hustle and never be lazy. If builders in other ecosystems are hustling and building something to not only help their community but also the Bitcoin community, why should I be mad at them?! There is one thing I'm agreement with the hardcore maximalist. All roads eventually lead to Bitcoin, how people get there is their decision.  

It's very simple to me : Bitcoin is more than just a crypto currency, it's a whole ecosystem. For it to grow and expand, we need people from all spectrums.  If it happens, that there's another ecosystem, great! Use it to make the point why Bitcoin is so unique and leave the choice to the individual.
