Early American bitcoin crusader, computer programmer, inventor, and an entrepreneur, Nick Spanos told Bitcoin Magazine he doesn’t see the number one cryptocurrency bitcoin, as an instrument for financial investment.
“Bitcoin for me is not an instrument for financial investment. Bitcoin for me is a declaration of our monetary independence.”
Mr. Spanos is the founder of Bitcoin Center Newyork which was founded in 2013, in downtown Newyork. This center started as a Bitcoin Christmas party and later became a place where people could come and learn about bitcoin. This learning center which is now Bitcoin Center Newyork is the first crypto exchange established across the globe.
Spanos who discovered bitcoin while working for Liberty minded political candidates told Bitcoin Magazine that his zeal for personal freedom prompted him to uncover bitcoin. He realized there was a need to push the digital currency out to the Wall Street for the world to see it as valuable.
The bitcoin crusader fought for a long time to achieve his aim, he was able to educate report writers, technologists, stockbrokers, students and groups who would support in projecting the cryptocurrency. He fought a tough battle to bring bitcoin to the limelight, but he has also come up to say that bitcoin is not a good investment tool.
The computer programmer sees bitcoin as a tool to set people free from government and institutional control and not for investment.
