Bitcoin Changes Perception Of Money

The Root Of All Evil

For my entire life, to the best of my memory, I can recall one persistent narrative:

“For the love of money is the root of all evil, therefore selfishness must be the seed.” — M. D. Birmingham (which is a take on the quote from 1 Timothy 6:10).

In the most recent decade of my time among the living, I have learned how this belief is wildly misguided. Allow me to defend my reasonings why.

The Ultimate Currency

In the grand scheme of things, money has played a massively important role in the development and progress of history. From the use of seashells as a “money” to the gold coins of Rome or the first fiat currency — the jiaozi of the Song Dynasty in China — to the U.S. dollar today, money has played a pivotal role for humanity.
