Cleaning up after MassiveAdoption in Memphis! - a conference I failed at. https://t.co/hjLrwZr2ki - How to make Bitcoin newsletter

1/ Putting Bitcoin into the hands of kids has always been a huge goal of mine.

2 of my 4 kids are Bitcoiners.

Anyone who hangs out with 12 year olds & up knows that they know a lot more about $ than most of us assume.

Many of them already earn, save & lend.

2/ To 12ylds & 16ylds alike, Bitcoin is no more complicated to learn than our current archaic financial system.

'QT' is not easier to grasp than 'fixed supply'.

Knowledge of 'credit card charge backs' & 'pending transactions' is not something you're born with.

#satsforstudents
3/ To that end, we are designing a full student program at #MassiveAdoption - to allow young people, mostly from underprivileged backgrounds, to not only learn about Bitcoin, blockchains & digital assets, but to receive some BTC sats to start on the BTC path.

Announcing new speakers for #MassiveAdoption (Memphis,TN on November 7-8, 2000 attendees) and re-announcing speakers previously confirmed in an effort to build a single comprehensive thread. We're currently at about 50% of our roster.

👇🏽👇🏽
#MassiveAdoption is the first event focused on onboarding curious professionals into the world of blockchains & digital assets, including Bitcoin.

We do this through TEDx-style talks, workshops & real interactive crypto experiences with 🔥 partners.

And whiskey, music & BBQ.
Just today, @YahooFinance wrote that the average Bitcoin holder in America is older, a parent & more conservative (in many regards) than many of us had imagined.

They can also #stacksats at @Safeway (thanks @trylolli 🍭)

This is who #MassiveAdoption speaks to.

1/ One of the great privileges I have when putting #MassiveAdoption together is meeting #Bitcoin #blockchain #crypto enterpreneurs across the country building ways away from SF/NY.

So I'm going to do a state-by-state series highlighting them.

(investors, pay attention)
2/ This is just a couple of companies to get us started. I'd love all of you to add your own picks & to tag folks in this state who are building around Bitcoin or on Bitcoin, crypto and blockchains. Let's shine some light inside the U.S., not just on the coasts.

#MassiveAdoption
3/ We start with #NorthCarolina to honor one of the stars of #Libra #LibraInDC day, Representative Patrick McHenry.

Bitcoin & blockchain aren't the first thing that come to mind when you think of NC, but you'd miss out on a lot, so let's get started.
