For this episode of Bitcoin Magazine’s “Meet The Taco Plebs,” I was joined by a longtime friend in the space, Saint Bitcoin (@Saint_BITCOIN). Saint is the host of the “Pleb Talk Podcast,” which is one of my personal favorites. Unfortunately, it is on hold at the moment until travel restrictions lighten up, and then Saint will be back at it doing great in-person interviews with loads of plebs.
In this podcast, we discussed how Saint got into Bitcoin and fell down the rabbit hole, and why Bitcoin is so important to him. He connected Bitcoin with his faith and sees both as a fountain of truth in which people can learn and guide their lives. Saint and I discussed what is missing from the world today and how people have become completely disconnected and lost. We got into detail about what we think most people are missing and getting wrong, and how Bitcoin is the beacon of hope that fixes these problems.
We discussed our appreciation and support for the Bitcoin taco plebs, who have been the all-stars of 2020 and the past three-year bear market. We shouted out some plebs and explained that the institutional investors getting into the space are cool but that honestly, the hard working, everyday plebs stacking sats is what really is amazing. Normal people putting in their entire life savings and then some to accumulate bitcoin is more respectable than millionaires and billionaires putting in 1 percent to 2 percent of their net worths into the corn.
Below are some of Saint’s best thoughts shared during the interview. And be sure to check out the full episode for more.
