EP62: While We Wait with @danWilcz
2-Bit Idiots

Bitcoin is a game of patience.  Daniel has been here a while and has shown more patience than most.

Founder of HardBlock.com.au – Australia's oldest Bitcoin only exchange – he's stayed true to his principles since finding Bitcoin in 2013.  There have been hurdles and challenges along the way.  Brendo and I sat down with him to hear his story and seek his advice.  It left us with plenty to consider.  We discuss:

  • What it’s like being in Bitcoin full-time for 9 years
  • Starting a Bitcoin business 4 months after discovering Bitcoin
  • Jumping in on the 2013 price spike, and being underwater for 2 years
  • Coming from a computer system engineering and economics background
  • His rapid fall down the rabbit hole
  • Never really having a “real job”
  • Seeing a Bitcoin therapist
  • Being part of a social revolution
  • Managing risk in a Bitcoin business
  • Being de-banked more than 20 times
  • Building a service you’re happy to recommend to family and friends
  • Encouraging customers to self-custody
  • Shitcoin casinos
  • Can you build a Bitcoin only business and why
  • Industry bodies
  • The ethics of advertising
  • How you reach decisions
  • Can a business outperform Bitcoin
  • Local not global

Therefore, it is worth noting that Bitcoin's volatility can also work against traders, leading to significant losse
