A one-year retrospective from a Canadian Bitcoiner who lived through the Freedom Convoy in Ottawa and found a lifeline in the Bitcoin community.
This is an opinion editorial by Boomer, a long-time and active member of the financial independence/retire early (FIRE) movement and a contributor at Bitcoin Magazine.
It has been exactly one year since I started my Bitcoin journey, and after being inspired by meeting several amazing Canadian Bitcoiners over the past few weeks, I want to share my story. In some ways, my orange-pilling has been the greatest thing to ever happen to me, but it has also been extremely trying. I guess you can compare it to “The Hero’s Journey.”
