Bitcoin: The Secrets They Don't Want You To Know

By johnwege | johnwege | 23 May 2024


There is the reality that you think you know, and then there is the reality of how the world actually works. Throughout our childhood and while growing up we have all been lied to. We’ve been told that you need to go to university, that you need a car, buy a house, and the newest electronics. We have been fed a constant dose of capitalism, and you’ll be able to become happy by finally obtaining them. While having money can reduce stress in your life, the truth is that “things” will never make you happy in the long term. 

We have been trained to be constantly wanting and having an appetite or thirst that can never be quenched. As soon as you have bought that new iPhone or pair of shoes you’ve been wanting for ages, you are already thinking about the next thing you want. Most of us understand that companies will do anything they can do, even if it means lying, in order to convince us to buy their products. After all, many of us do live in a capitalist society. However, it is this type of attitude that has gotten many people in such a rough financial situation. Going to university and taking out a huge loan on a degree that they don’t end up using. Using their credit card to spend money that they don’t have. It’s a never-ending cycle.

And so the people who are in the direst of situations look to the government for help. For them to finally pay attention to regular people. Often you will see the President or other politicians declare how things are incredibly difficult for people living in poverty. That they want to help them and level the playing field. However, nothing ever happens.

The simple fact is that these leaders only want your vote. They want to be elected, or they want to be re-elected. While they will publicly say that they want to help people living in poverty, the reality is that they want to keep people poor. For example, if everyone were middle class or even well off financially; there would be no one who works the jobs that lower-class people generally do. Societies rely on these jobs being filled, and without them would quickly fall apart. 

The government will tell you that they want to help you or protect you. However, they just want to keep the status quo going. Meaning the rich get richer, and the poor get poorer. Whenever there is a product or service that could be a real asset to retail buyers and put them on equal footing with wealthy people, it is quickly removed. If you have been paying attention to the cryptocurrency market recently you will have been able to see this happening all around you. Staking and earning a yield has been deemed too dangerous. Investing in the newest coins and ICOs are off-limits. No matter what they say, the truth is that they don’t want you to get ahead. They want you to stay right where you are.

One of the best examples of this is the inflation of the US dollar. Those who save in cash or have little to no savings are hurt the most by this. Typically their salary stays the same, but their cost of living is always increasing. That’s why it seems like you are never able to get ahead. On the other hand, inflation allows rich people to become even richer. This is because they don’t keep a large portion of their wealth in cash. Instead, they buy assets, which often outperform inflation significantly.

There used to be a time when all you needed to do was go to work, and save what you could. During this banks offered high interest and just keeping your cash in a savings account was a smart investment. Nothing else was required. Fast forward to today and to have any chance at retiring, we all must become investors.

That is what is so attractive about Bitcoin. With a set supply, an inflation rate that is always decreasing, and being incredibly secure makes it the hardest money the world has ever seen. It presents the opportunity where people could once again just work hard and keep their savings in Bitcoin. By doing this, it would be enough to get ahead in life. People would no longer need to become expert investors. 

The world seems to be transforming into a dark and difficult place. Just making ends meet is becoming increasingly difficult each day for the normal person. Bitcoin is the life raft and the escape valve. Once you have seen how the world actually works against most people, that is the day you have finally escaped the Matrix.

How about you? When did you finally see what is really happening in the world?
