Dropping out vs dropping fiat for bitcoin and FOSS

I had a conversation with Matt Rose – Head of marketing for Foundation devices about his entry into the bitcoin space after a career in traditional fiat marketing. Matt made the move to the bitcoin world after experiencing how fake the large corporations were and he explains in this episode how much ideas get watered down after going through all of the checklists to comply and stay woke.

Now that Matt is working for Foundation devices things are very different. He’s excited to be working with a team that genuinely cares about privacy, security, freedom and bitcoin. 

We also talked about the issues facing young people working in today’s world and how there is a movement in China called laying flat Where people are deciding to drop out rather than spend their entire lives working with no chance of progressing or having the lives they had been told they could have after working hard at school and going to university.

This is not just a trend in China is also happening in America and all across Europe, we discussed the ways that bitcoin can help and why this might just save an entire generation from living in quiet desperation.

Finally, we touched on the process of creating and organising our ideas. Matt and I both like to keep notes and continually work on ideas and Matt gave me a few tips on using open source free software like obsidian to improve and create links between different projects that might otherwise be missed.

I really enjoyed this conversation and I hope you enjoy listening for any questions. Please reach out and I’ll be happy to help.
