Second day of Chinese New Year. I’m at my wife’s colleague’s house, supporting her by keeping an eye on our children while she yaks merrily with her colleagues. Sounds like a recipe for boredom.
But it got me thinking about how much of Chinese culture is influenced by money. Look at what we give children as a good luck token, wishing for their health and prosperity:
Children are taught from young to give their elders two mandarin oranges and receive red packets in return. Guess that our love of money is intertwined with our DNA. 🧬 LOL.
I have spent enough time on Stacker News that the thing that Stackers value most may not be the appreciation of BTC. It is the liberation afforded by receiving and spending sats in an environment you create yourself, removed from the chains of fiat.
So, my culturally money-obsessed mentality prompts me to ask: are there better interest-yielding opportunities that you willingly give up so that you can go all in on BTC? Say, S & P 500? That you can’t be bothered to diversify because BTC is the only asset that matters to you?
