Why You Shouldn’t Be Afraid of Bitcoin

We Fear What We Believe is Dangerous.

The purpose of fear is to keep us away from that which will harm us. However, we have no way of automatically knowing what can harm us. That which is unknown to us may be dangerous or beneficial. We need to somehow learn which it is, and under which circumstances. A knife is a good example. It can be quite dangerous, but when we learn to wield it safely it is a tool we can use to prepare food, which is beneficial. We often start life fearing knives, but come to view them merely as useful tools.

Learning is a Gradual Process

The first time you tried to stand up, you fell down. But with practice you got better. The same happened as you learned to walk and eventually to run. When it came to walking you knew it was something you wanted to do. You could see all the other people around you doing it and you could see the benefit of being able to get to where you wanted to be.

Don’t Let Others Instill Fear in You

Someone could have tried to scare you off of learning to run — maybe someone even did. “It’s bad for your knees!” they might have warned. Some warnings are fair. But most are overblown. Most people can in fact learn to run safely without destroying their knees.

Why Learn to Use Bitcoin

Bitcoin is a new form of something that just about every human being needs to use every day — money.

Don’t Fear Bitcoin — Learn it. Perhaps Even Master It

When it comes to Bitcoin don’t let others scare you into believing that it is a scheme to take your money or that it is dangerous to the environment. It is neither.

Bitcoin is Also a Community of Teachers and Coaches.

You will find that the Bitcoin community is incredibly eager to share with you what they’ve learned and to help guide you on your learning journey. Bitcoiners, as we call ourselves, have enthusiasm and passion for a world of reliable, sound and honest money that welcomes everyone in the world to use it. We will explain things to you, answer your questions and try to protect you from hurting yourself too much (although some painful lessons may be in store for you anyways).
