One of the nice things about Bitcoin is that it does give you what we in Bitcoin called low time preference. The tendency in our society today is to be very high time preference. We want things right now and consume things right now. This is how the monetary system is designed. It's designed to enslave you through that, it lets you consume first and pay off later.
But that unfortunately enslaves you in ways that you don't really understand until later. With Bitcoin, you get the opposite. It's about saving and then getting things afterwards. That's a lot more rewarding a lot better for character and a lot better for civilization.
I would say the real fruit of Bitcoin is that ability to think long term and, and if there's one thing that I would encourage your listeners to go figure out is how to think long term and how to change the incentives in your life. So that you're thinking long term because it's a lot better, a lot more rewarding. A lot better for society and civilization.
