E220: How to Survive in a Bitcoin World: War, Hackers, and Scams

Bitcoin for preppers

In this episode, we sit down with Joey King; BitCoin blogger and developer. He’s going to tell us all about BitCoin and the fate of money as we know it.

Several years ago, Joey left his fortune 100 job to pursue his passion for BitCoin. Since then he’s become a figure and influencer in the movement. And he’s just getting warmed up.

The world of cryptocurrency is a huge subject. And this will be the beginning of many episodes on the topic. Although, we were the first in the survival podcast community to talk about Bitcoin for preppers and say “we’re in” long ago. But it’s been so long since our first episode on the topic we’ll need to start at the start.

So, we pick back up where we left off all those years ago. We’ll discuss what crypto-currency is, Bitcoin for preppers, the existing scams, pitfalls, politics, drama, and possible futures.

This will be a high-level episode. We’ll stay out of the deep weeds of daily use. And there’ll be something to learn and enjoy for everyone regardless of your interest in owning cryptocurrency.
