My perspective on Bitcoin is one of personal freedom and accountability. This new currency and payment method is a tool for individual liberty. The peer-to-peer transactions allow for decentralized networks to flourish. It encourages and sustains the transfer of currency from person to person.
As a single mom with 5 kiddos to love and support, the option of using bitcoin is appealing.
I bought a few when they were still pretty low and have been adding to my collection as funds allow me to. I kept my wallet on Coinbase and was in the process of transferring the majority to a paper wallet.
Understanding how it all works has been a challenge for me, as I know it is for many people who hold Bitcoin. Before putting most of my usable Bitcoins into a paper wallet, I wanted to make sure that I understood how to access them. Not fully understanding, I had not completed the process.
For anyone whose bitcoins are not secure yet, please let my delay and misfortune be an encouragement to you: get your bitcoins secured!
