Bitcoin is down ~25% over the past 10 days.

But it has still outperformed gold by 66x and the S&P 500 by 11x over the last decade.

IMHO - Bitcoin is the world’s best savings technology.

Here's a thread on how to keep more of it. 👇👇👇
2/ First, look at what investors call CAGR (Compound Annual Growth Rate). It's a way to break down growth across assets, on the same time frame, and compare them.

Over the past decade, Bitcoin's is 132%.

Gold's is 2%. The S&P 500's is 12% (h/t @Case4Bitcoin)
3/ A 132% CAGR means that your money has more than doubled every year over the past decade 🤯
4/ However, growth isn't that smooth in real life. Bitcoin is still a relatively new asset (created just 12 years ago) and there will be volatility.

But if you believe in the long-term future of bitcoin, there is no need to panic when there are dips.
5/ And if you're a hodler who believes in the long-term future of bitcoin, the best way to do it is within an IRA with @choicebykt

Why? So you don't pay capital gains taxes on your trades, while you are still investing.
6/ There are two main types of IRAs -- Traditional IRAs & Roth IRAs.

The maximum annual contribution for most people is $6,000 for both (depending on your age and income, everyone's tax situation is unique - DYOR).
7/ If you open a Traditional IRA, when you withdraw the money after you turn 59½ it is considered income, so you have to pay income taxes on it.

However, you can deduct your contributions from your taxable income lowering your tax bill in the process.
8/ If you use a Roth IRA you don't have to pay ANY taxes on your gains, even after you withdraw your money.

Because you pay income taxes on the dollars before contributing, you can withdraw the money tax-free after the age of 59½.

Tax. Efficient. Bitcoin.
9/ Legacy retirement accounts limit your choices and encourage you to put your money in a target-date fund.

@choicebykt enables you to plan for your future how you see fit.

You can own bitcoin, other digital assets, alternative assets, & traditional assets all in one account.
10/ It's no coincidence that retirement accounts with crypto in them are more than 2x the national average.

National average for retirement accounts = ~$105K; 0% crypto allocation

@choicebykt average = ~$215K; 67% crypto allocation

Not advice, just facts.
11/ To summarize:

1) There will be volatility. Invest for the long term.

2) #bitcoin is the world's best savings technology.

3) @choicebykt is the best (and tax-efficient) way to save.
Oh, and @choicebykt also lets you hold your private keys.

That is why I am not only a user of the product for my own IRA, but Choice became a podcast sponsor a few months ago to spread the word about this great wealth hack.

1/ @Gemini recently launched a really comprehensive State of Crypto U.S. report and there are some really exciting and eye-opening stats:…
2/ According to @Gemini’s report about 14% of US citizens own crypto.

This is about 21.2 million US adults.
3/ While just 26% of current crypto holders are women, women account for more than half (53%) of those interested in getting into crypto soon.

There is an opportunity here and the industry should be paying attention.

Inflation is probably over 5% right now for the bottom 20% of Americans.

Time for quick thread 👇🏼👇🏼👇🏼
The bottom 20% experiences economic destruction very differently.

For example, "every dollar and more of aggregate gains in household wealth between 2009 and 2011 went to the richest 7 percent of households"…
"Recent research also shows that prices have risen more quickly for people at the bottom of the income distribution than for those at the top — a phenomenon dubbed “inflation inequality.”"…

Today I'm announcing that I have led the $5 million Series A round in @synthesischool.

Our current education system was built for the industrial age. We must teach our children to be prepared for the digital age.

More information in video and thread 👇🏽👇🏽👇🏽
Our children are forced to sit still, be quiet, and simply do what they are told in school.

We tell them what to think, rather than teach them how to think.

Synthesis does the exact opposite. Children learn problem solving and critical thinking skills.
The world needs many more innovators, entrepreneurs, and creatives.

The legacy education system literally teaches students how to do the exact opposite. This should be a national emergency!

Do you want your kid to be prepared for the future? Sign up:

My goal this year is to help 10,000 people get hired in the bitcoin and crypto industry.

We're making really solid progress, but have a lot more work to do.

The third cohort of the training course starts Tuesday. Sign up here:…
We know that what we are building won't be for everyone.

If someone has better ideas, we hope they build something that is more effective.

We'll be happy as long as we get more talented people joining the industry. This is going to require a team effort.
If you're looking for a job in bitcoin and crypto, you can use these resources today:

While these are a good start, there is a lot of work left to do. We'll be building more products in the future.
