To be a “good citizen” of bitcoin you need to take personal responsibility for your education. There is so much to learn. Computer science, networking, economics, game theory, cryptography, security and much more. We were overwhelmed when we started, too. Still are.
But we’re fascinated. And we know that bitcoin education is already and will only become more important. With Citizen Bitcoin we are taking the leap from learn to teach.
We are still learning, too. We’ll make mistakes. But we pledge to learn from our mistakes and to seek clear understanding. We invite you to join us on this journey so we don’t have to do it alone.
Bitcoin has the potential to change society in fundamental ways. These could be new protocols for global trade, business, organizing and governing. Clear understanding will be needed to make the most of the opportunities before us.
We’re excited to take this next step. We welcome any and all constructive and respectful feedback, critiques and corrections and look forward to getting to know many of you along the way.
You can expect takes on news, discussion of bitcoin and society, how bitcoin works and various bitcoin how-to’s. We hope to help the newly bitcoin curious move more efficiently along the steep bitcoin learning curve.
We’ve just published our first weekly YouTube video. Check it out and let us know what you think.
Note: just to be clear and to manage potential expectations, we’re doing this in the time we can find in already busy lives. But so is pretty much everyone in bitcoin.
