Ali Hamam from Tahini's Restaurant on Go Full Crypto

Ali Hamam from Tahinis Restaurant Converts Cash Reserves to Bitcoin

By Keegan Francis | Go Full Crypto | 1 Sep 2020

Episode 10 of the Go Full Crypto podcast is with Ali Hamam from Tahini's Restaurant. Tahinis Restaurant recently caught the mainstream crypto news' attention when they converted their cash reserves into Bitcoin. Go Full Crypto managed to snag an interview with Ali Hamam, one of the founders of Tahini's. Ali tells us the story of how he got into Bitcoin as recently as January 2020. We don't typically see such a rapid and total adoption of Bitcoin, on an individual or business level. This whole story comes just weeks after NASDAQ traded company MicroStrategy converted $250 million of their reserves into Bitcoin. Although Tahini's is a much smaller business, it is still quite the decision. The interview is about an hour long, and Ali walks us through his decision making process behind converting his cash to Bitcoin.

Go Full Crypto at it's Core

When Ali was telling Mrugakshee and I his story, it struck me that Ali represents much of what Go Full Crypto promotes. We want people to get into crypto, but not dive in for the wrong reasons. Ideally, people educate themselves, research cryptocurrency somewhat thoroughly, dip in their toes, then step into the cryptosphere. We want to give people the tools and education they need to not get taken advantage of in this space. That includes educating people about the emotion of FOMO (Fear of Missing Out), and what a dangerous emotion that is to have when investing. What Ali did, was go through the process of entering the cryptosphere in a span of about 3 months. Then Ali went Full Crypto 8 months in, when his business converted its cash reserves into Bitcoin.

Here at Go Full Crypto, this is just the sort of thing we love to see happen, but for the right reasons. Ali is extremely down to earth, well spoken, articulate, and well educated on the subject of Bitcoin. He was influences by an article many of us have probably read. Robert Breedlove's: The Number Zero and Bitcoin was one of the influences that Ali himself mentioned on the podcast. What Ali ended up doing was get Ready to enter crypto. Then he found himself Set, being armed with the tools of knowledge. Then he hit Go when he bought the dip in March 2020. It seemed like a natural progression from there to convert his businesses reserves into crypto. Go Full Crypto loved having Ali be our first guest, and welcome Ali back in a couple of years to see how this decision has changed his life.
