This is an opinion editorial by Gabriel Vazquez, a contributor for Bitcoin Magazine.

Bitcoin Maximalism is perceived by many as a “toxic” trait, a brand of culture war waged by veteran holders, OGs and whales who will do anything to pump their bags. In this brief piece, I explain how this couldn’t be further from the truth. I cover my journey to maximalism and how Bitcoin has taught me to HODL through hardship, readjust my aspirations and lowering my time preference. Finally, I will make the case that Bitcoin is a beacon, not only for the OGs, venture capitalists, CEOs and all those other wealthy acronyms, but for the poor, the tired and the huddled masses.
