my life before bitcoin

F.A.Hayek Foundation - executive manager of the very first Future of Money conference in Central Europe
ViaGold - co-founder the very first online shop where you could buy stuff in exchange for your gold holdings via GoldMoney payment network in 2011

EUREKA moment 2012

GoldMoney, which was the gold payment processor for our venture - ViaGold, has decided to cut off it's payment network under heavy regulatory scrutiny conducted by tax authorities. That event has ruined our business model immediately and we started looking for an alternative.

We discovered Bitcoins unique uncensorable properties quite quickly, but it's high volatility at that time did not allow us to utilize it as a payment alternative. 

We went out of business learning an important lesson: 

"Trusted Third Party Payment Networks Are  Business Threats"

Bitcoin Courses & Consultations

Magic Internet Money better known as Bitcoin, is a nascent technology which has already been around for about a decade.

Bitcoin isn't new PayPal, it is radically new form of absolutely scarce money which never existed before. It is something entirely novel and very disruptive.

Bitcoin is uncensorable, unconfiscatable, ultra-hard type of money designed by engineers as an ultimate store of value instrument for 21st century.

Bitcoin is for everyone who has a low risk tolerance for worst-case economic scenarios. It protects its owners against price inflation, secures its owners against bank collapses and serves its owners as a safe deposit in the zeronegative interest rate environment globally.

Bitcoin behaves more like Digital Gold in longtime periods despite it's short term volatility. If you buy Bitcoin, you are putting your savings and faith in a mathematical framework that is free of politics and human error.

However endurance to hold it long term requires deep investment in education. I am ready to help.

Czech translation of "The Bitcoin standard"

Saifedean Ammous wrote spectacular compilation on the history of money putting Bitcoin brilliantly into the context.

Convincing my friends to read it and learn from it is a harsh task. They usually lack the ability to read scholar English. So I have decided to manage the translation it into Czech.

I will find sponsors willing to finance translation and buy the rights from Wiley. However there is plenty of work to do and I am looking for enthusiast collaborators with following capabilities:

  1. Translate the book
  2. Arrange distribution and sales
  3. Arrange marketing

hobby project: make delorean machine great again

Lambo, in my humble opinion, is highly overrated car in the Bitcoin community. Please consider these compelling arguments for the DMC machine before buying new car once we MOON: 

  • futuristic-ish design
  • appearance in the cult movie "Back to the Future"
  • manufacturer wasn't owned by FIAT. ever.

Martin mi skvěle nastavil firemní procesy, udělal migraci z naprostého punku do CRM (která mě bolela, ale musím si přiznat že přinesla své ovoce) a řídí vše co nemusím dělat já. Já se díky tomu mohu naplno věnovat technickým věcem a školením. Pokud budete potřebovat poradit s podobnými věcmi, zkuste požádat Martina.
