For this episode of Bitcoin Magazine’s “Meet The Taco Plebs,” I was joined by BtcCasey (@BtcCasey), a young gun who loves to write about Bitcoin.
The other week, Casey flew into town with the rest of the Bitcoin Magazine team and I got the chance to meet him in person. Casey, the team, and I hung out all week and got to know each other a lot better, and I knew I just had to get him on the show.
Casey is a Bitcoin zoomer, writing about Bitcoin and making a career out of it. I think it’s fantastic to see other young people pursuing their passions and aiming to be successful. Casey has a bright future and is making really smart moves right now that are building a foundation for his future self to really excel from. If you’re not reading his articles, you probably should be.
In this interview, Casey discusses how getting involved in Bitcoin changed his career path, as well as his educational goals. He was previously in the healthcare industry and realized he wanted to leave to pursue writing, and he did just that. His time preference has lowered which has influenced the way he thinks about this future. He knows adopting a low-time preference at a young age comes with lots of benefits, and he’s trying to capitalize on all of it.
He shares his thoughts on the leverage that Bitcoin gives individuals to view the world in a different light. Bitcoin is extremely powerful and has the ability to give people freedom from that leverage. The task of achieving financial freedom is pretty difficult under a fiat standard, but Bitcoin fixes this.
