Lifetime subscription option

Missed the deadline on Friday? Here's another way you can keep the old price

I’ve received numerous messages, emails, and comments from people who missed the deadline on Friday due to time zones, travel, etc, who wanted to signup and keep the old blog pricing, but missed it by minutes or hours. Unfortunately, Substack doesn’t give me an easy option to put a subscriber on an old pricing tier. However, it does give me an easy way to comp a subscription for life.

As you may know, I’m a big supporter of Bitcoin and want to promote its use as censorship resistant money. In general, I not only accept Bitcoin in every type of business activity and transaction, I typically give people a 10% discount for paying in Bitcoin and a 10% premium for those who let me pay them in Bitcoin.

Anyway, for those of you who still want to subscribe, I’m offering a lifetime subscription option for just $500 worth of Bitcoin - 2 years of annual fees at the current price. Just reply to this email and I’ll send you a Bitcoin address.

By the way, I recommend using Bitcoin “the old fashioned way”. I use the Mycelium wallet, which is an on chain, non custodial solution. That means nobody can ever freeze your account or steal your funds (though you can lose them if you don’t back up your private key). It means you never need to complete KYC. It means you can send a currency that hundreds of millions of people value to anyone in the world cheaply and securely with zero censorship. In an age of increasingly totalitarian government, it’s hard to overstate the importance of having a backup plan that doesn’t fit within the “traditional” economy.

The basis of individual sovereignty is having options. I believe property with low/no property taxes, residency in a place with low/no income taxes, and transferrable value that cannot be seized by the push of a button are all important options. I believe in a world governed by ideas and freedom of exchange, not by power hungry governments who want to control what you think, how you raise your children, what information you have access to, what you put in your body, how you worship, and who you can do business with.

Thank you!
