Bitcoin is Digital Gold – Thoughts on it becoming the world’s reserve currency and owning some today

Bitcoin is digital gold. It will become more significant to the world’s economy when it replaces the US Dollar as the world’s reserve currency. Owning some bitcoin, even a little bit, is a good idea.

Geoff’s thoughts as of August 7th 2021:

“I have become fascinated by bitcoin in the past month. From both the technology perspective as well as the social and economic perspective, it is very interesting. Having studied economics at an undergraduate level, a great deal of what bitcoin shows promise is to give people a way to preserve the value they generate through their labor over time, into the future. At the current moment, as governments are printing money like crazy, inflation is growing, and interest rates are at an all time low, there are not many accessible ways to prevent your earnings and savings from losing value. By having bitcoin as a potential store of value, it gives people a way to extend their time preference into the future and start thinking more long term in their decision making.”

I am still learning my instrument (the voice) and consider myself to be pretty new to singing, as I only started singing in 2013 (8 years ago). Special thanks to my current vocal teacher, Spencer Welch Vocal Studio, and my previous vocal teacher, Mark Downey Vocal Studio.

I am much more advanced on piano than singing, as I started playing piano when I was 3 years old, and I’m 39 years old now! I am excited to be learning the voice and feel that it’s never too late to start learning an instrument. I just wish I had done choir in high school because it is so much easier to learn an instrument when you start when you are young. However I have no regrets and am grateful for my singing teachers for taking me step by step through learning the voice, and have a goal of keeping on track and gradually improving well into my senior years.

Technical notes:
Audio was recorded using a Zoom H1 and Sennheiser ME-2 lav microphone, and “mastered” in Audacity using High Pass filter and W1 Limiter.
