Slavery or Freedom?

As humanity is transitioning into a more and more purely digital, cryptographically protected, decentralized, censorship- & seizure-resistant, unconfiscatable, and borderless zero-to-one technologically advanced civilization, it is time then to reflect upon a possibly cruel reality human individuals are about to be confronted with.

We have a huge challenge to make the literally untouchable structures of monopolies on aggression, violence, coercion, wars, ….and systemic theft
(taxation, inflation etc.) obsolete.
In short: Humanity needs to get ouf of this horrendous slavery (read the fantastic article by Robert Breedlove.

For all born and unborn Children of Humanity

Some of the standard questions I often ask my guests on my show TotalBitcoin:

  • How do you envision humanity´s future with Bitcoin as the monetary rootlayer?
  • How could the life of the average person look like or be transformed in a society or civilization based on Bitcoin?
  • How can you imagine a (hyper-) Bitcoinized world on a monetary, economical, social, structural, scientific-technological, and spiritual level?
  • What is your imagination, dream, and comprehension of a monetary evolution, rooted in Bitcoin?
    etc.

Hardly any of my interviewed guests can describe a concrete (!) idea, dream, vision or a realistic individual “testimonial” in…


After more than a week sitting on my ass, I finally managed to turn my Casa2-hardware (Raspberry Pi4 etc.) into a “mynode”-Full Node with approximately 80–90% of all the available & integrated functions, features, and apps (Lightning & Samourai wallets; HWW etc.) activated and connected to my own full node.

Even before I started to read and watch tons of instructional materials and prepare myself for this techy-nerdy-geeky mental masturbation procedure,
I thought to myself: how the fuck is an average (non-technical) user, customer, shop-&business-owner, or merchant supposed to use this technology, its applications & payment-infrastructure (Full Node; Hardware Wallet…


We live in a time of unprecendented changes, transformations,…and fear- at least what most people on this planet are concerned.
The politically untouchable, legally unaccountable, and criminally immune entities of monopolistic or oligarchistic governments, Central Banks, and other enslaving structures have started to undress the last fig-leaf.
This time it means that the Central Bankers with their subservient governmental puppets — who sold out their soul a long time ago — don´t give a fuck about humanity´s reaction. The systematic violence, aggression, coercion, and theft in action is in our face.

Still, the tendency of any arrogant and blindly executing…

Bitcoin: The Monetary-Technological Root-Key for Human Freedom

Can Bitcoin free the infinite number of suppressed technology within the military-corporate-industrial complex…and serve total humanity?

The former US-President, Dwight D. Eisenhower, explicity warned the people in his Military-Industrial-Complex Speech in 1961:

“…This conjunction of an immense military establishment and a large arms industry is new in the American experience. The total influence — economic, political, even spiritual — is felt in every city, every State house, every office of the Federal government. We recognize the imperative need for this development. Yet we must not fail to comprehend its grave implications. Our toil, resources and livelihood are all involved; so is the very structure of our society.

In the councils of government, we must guard against…

Reading and listening through the infinite twitter-threads, articles, podcasts, videos, and other truly precious “educational” materials aint easy for the curiously minded Bitcoin-newbie. Expecting that the fresh user and hodler starts educating himself on how to “mix” his newly acquired Satoshis with the definitely appreciated mobile&desktop-wallet-applications (Samourai´s Whirlpool, Wasabi etc.) before transferring them to his/her hardware-wallet, cannot be taken seriously, especially when we are talking about the average, technically inexperienced, and insecure user.

Now, I am conscious of the reality of time, patience, and the necessary process of development, in order to make technical/technological applications truly easy and userfriendly. I…

Buy and Hodl Satoshis.

If you are a total newbie to the space of Bitcoin, let it be said: No, you do not need to buy one whole Bitcoin. Thanks to Satoshi Nakomoto, who set the core-principals of Bitcoin in stone, there will only be an absolutely limited amount of 21 Million coins, the last one to be minted around the year 2140- with a pre-programmed disinflationary difficulty adjustment.

Bitcoin is the scarcest money ever created in human history, which makes it harder and scarcer than gold with its relative scarcity (every year, an additional 1–2 % of gold is added to the existing…


By now, most people- even in the mainstream media — have understood that the total amount of all Bitcoins — to be mined until the year 2140 —
is predetermined, absolutely limited, and set in stone with 21 Million Bitcoins since the release of Satoshi Nakomoto´s coded version 0.1 in 2009.
Various analysts have estimated that approximately a minimum of 2.7 up to a maximum of 4 million Bitcoins have been “lost” due to a number
of possible reasons: lost private keys, owners died without taking care of inheritance-issues and not leaving behind the access to their private keys etc.
Since there are approximately 3.2 million Bitcoins still to be mined and considering the amount of Bitcoins lost forever, the fascinating question arises
as to how many Satoshis or what (smallest) fraction of 1 Bitcoin every human being could own or “hodl”?
Hypothetically, if we should assume that 3 Million Bitcoins have already been lost, then there would only be 18 Million Bitcoins in totality.
If every Bitcoin is divisible and made of 100 Million Satoshis, then 18 Mio. x 100 Mio. = 1.8 quadrillion Satoshis.
Even if we had assumed no lost coins whatsoever, here my question to the mathematically talented (Bitcoin-) experts.
Considering the already “hodled”, mined and to be mined Bitcoins until the year 2140, what is the realistic amount of Satoshis or fraction of 1 Bitcoin to be owned by all 7.5–8 billion human beings on this planet?

Last, but not least-out of curiosity- do you (theoretically) think that the 1 Million Bitcoins, which Satoshi Nakomoto had “reserved” for himself in the early days of the birth of Bitcoins, could be “evenly” distributed equally to all human beings in the future?

The Keyvan Davani Connection

Imagine a world where the human civilization has matured and evolved on every level you can think of- on the “soundest” monetary rootlayer of Bitcoin: the hardest, scarcest, open, neutral, censorship-resistant, borderless, uncontrollable, unstoppable…and totally decentralized monetary rootlayer will have finally become part of our nature in the creation of exponential value and servitude to humanity in totality.

Let us try to understand the questions together. After understanding the question “Why Bitcoin?!”, we should ask ourselves what is the overall purpose, intention, vision, and wish behind all these complex talks on Bitcoin within the infinite circles of intelligence and knowledge…
