Bitcoin as a store of energy

Since I've been into bitcoin, I've been thinking of it philosophically, if I can say that...

We know it is an 'internet magic currency', we know it's based on blockchain and cryptography.

That's neat and all, but it's bitcoin's deep properties that caught up my attention.

The amount of bitcoin available forever is only 21 million units.

That's it. No more.

Can't be printed or magically created out of nothing.

Why is this important?

Think about money. Money is what you receive in exchange for the value you create.

Being a freelancer, full-time employee, boss, CEO, investor, anything.

All the money you have is your energy stored in a way you can exchange for other people's energy.

And out of many problems fiat money have, one stands out the most to me.

It's not finite. Quite the contrary. It's infinite and at the hands of people who do not care about your energy or your work's value to the world.

These people can print money of out thin air.

Banks and governments around the world, no exception.

Every time they print money, your energy loses value.

Banks and governments are, in a very objective way, stealing your energy.

It's personal. It's your energy. It's your work they are stealing.

But for the first time in the history of mankind, we have a way out.

We can finally store our energy in a network that respects and values our energy.

1 BTC will always be 1 BTC

Your work and energy are safe in the blockchain
