Money 2.0. Once you get orange pilled, the fiat blinders are off and you’re now an active participant in Satoshi’s revolution for hard money, decentralization, and freedom.
My name is Reid Walley, and I got orange-pilled in 2017 by one of my brother’s long-time friends. They had me install Bread App (later purchased by Coinbase) on my phone, sent me $5.00 of Bitcoin via QR code, and told me to educate myself by following Andreas M. Antonopoulos (“Not your keys, not your coins“). I also read The Bitcoin Standard by Saifedean Ammous, and really learned about fiat money and Bitcoin.
Then I learned about mnemonic phrase (recovery/seed phrase) and private keys, and the difference between hot wallets on exchanges and hardware wallets like Ledger. As of January 2023 I started learning about Nostr (via the Damus iOS app), which lead to learning how to use Bitcoin Lightning to make micropayments in sats. Then learned the difference between custodial and non-custodial Lightning wallets (non-custodial is the way to go).
I’ve been a graphic designer for decades and t-shirt design is a favorite medium. For me, Bitcoin designs on t-shirts is a natural fit for my skillset and interests. T-shirts have always been an extension of the wearer’s ideas and ideals – even if those ideas and ideals align with some and are at odds with others.
