In “One of a Kind: Why Bitcoin is ‘The Next Bitcoin,'” Andreas addresses the speculation about what will be the “next Bitcoin” or the “next Ethereum.” Echoing previous talks like ‘Invest in Education Instead of Speculation,’ he argues that the focus on searching for the best investment or time to buy amid a sea of pump-and-dump schemes is a worse way to spend your time than gathering knowledge about how these systems work. He also tells the story about how he bought bitcoin for the first time, why it is not the get-rich-quick scheme you may think it is, and the ways they could fail.
This talk took place on July 12th 2019 at the Athens Bitcoin and Blockchain Tech meetup in Athens, Greece.
This series is called ‘Unscrypted’ for a reason: all of Andreas’ talks are performed without slides or notes. You can find any necessary corrections and clarifications in the podcast description.
