Ed Krassentein, one of the Krassentein brothers who were recently banned from Twitter made a Reddit statement where he noted, among other things, that they are financially independent because of their investment in Bitcoin.
Regardless of your political stance, it is illuminating how cryptocurrencies can lead to financial independence, which in turn creates freer and more politically engaged citizens. Without Bitcoin we would not have a chance to see the brothers’ epic Twitter battle against Trump.
Direct quote from the statement:
Don’t worry about us. We are just fine! Let’s just say that buying very large amounts of bitcoin 8 years ago was a good decision. We never had any motive to make money off of our tweeting. We sincerely did it for what we believe. There was no other motivation!
