No-coiners don’t ‘get bitcoin’ because to understand it you have to own it and use it. It’s even better to mine it to make the mental jump.
For me it was mining as my old 1060 notebook could mine and so I switched on Nicehash software and it told me I was going to make $1.50 a day in bitcoin for just being me and my old notebook and being kind enough to run the software. Not that I was anybody who gave any private info. They didn’t want me to register, they didn’t want proof of my identity, my e-mail or my mobile. They didn’t want to listen to my microphone like Microsoft and a few others with their ‘fluffy’ clouds praying to prey on my ‘selfish ledger’ of data, they just wanted my hash address.
In that moment I went from very skeptical to a total convert.
My computer was at last paying me for nothing. “I was making money at home with my computer” for real just like the scammers had promised for the 25 years I had been online. The moment had arrived when I was going to be paid for merely existing and having a computer. The thermodynamics of money and economics had reversed, and money was going to flow to me from the world rather than flow from me. Existence was now an asset not a liability.
It’s a bitcoiner epiphany.
