For transparency,

after posting this SN post I see this:

He’s the scam. Investigate who you’re giving sats too. He’s full of shit not been there in YEARS and has been caught lying and scamming. Give to the Red Cross not this fool. He’s worse than a Nigerian Prince.


and this:

He’s been “isolated” from country aka ran out. He has zero power. Zero influence. Over 70% of their debt is to China. He’s not a friend. I’ve researched and documented on my time line extremely well. Your sats your decision but read the facts!

The 2021 recommendation by so-called legacy bitcoin gurus to borrow fiat dollars against bitcoin collateral to avoid tax consequences is ill-advised for all but the most sophisticated investors.

It is a fine way for the foolish to lose their hodl.

Many of these friends have chosen not to work and are living off their mortgaged hodl under the delusion bitcoin will go up to $100,000, $300,000, or even $1 million and are living off of dollars borrowed against bitcoin.

The legacy terms of borrowing dollars against bitcoin are simply not favorable for the average investor, especially now. And I say this without equivocation.
