Bitcoin & Co. Mastering Freedom

Todays guest is Dale Bewan. He is a married father of two, living in Germany. Since 2017 Bitcoin is the only money Dale is using. He does not own or hold any Fiat currency like Euros or US Dollars.

"2010, that's very early in the Bitcoin world, I discovered Bitcoin on a mailing list. It was probably one of the cypherpunk mailing lists, I downloaded it, I played with it, I mined some Bitcoin as far as I recall, I mined four blocks and then I made, what was probably the silliest mistake of my life, I said this isn't as interesting as "City at Home" so I deleted it. I thought why use my computing power to create these virtual coins I've got two hundred of them already [Laughter]." - Dale Bewan
