Revisiting Bitcoin 2021 And The Connections Made There Today

Posted on

I have some very fond memories of last year’s Bitcoin Conference in Miami. On the first day, I grabbed an Uber from my hotel in South Beach. It was the first Uber ride that I had ever ordered on my own phone. This boomer was going places! Later, Elliot Chun, a new friend that I met at the conference, would remark that it is crazy that I owned bitcoin for five years before I had even downloaded the Uber app. Such are the crazy priorities of a 58-year-old!

The Uber driver was Haitian, so we spoke in French. I asked him if he knew about Bitcoin and he responded that he had heard of it but did not own any. I told him to download a wallet and I would send him some. I gave him my cell number to text me his wallet address if he downloaded a new wallet.
