in #bitcoin6 years ago (edited)

Andreas M. Antonopoulos is an early pioneer, adopter & educator in the Bitcoin/Crypto space if you have not heard of him.


If you get a little lost listening to him, do not worry. The guy is SO smart and well spoken.

He routinely puts out some of the best information going. He speaks plainly and simply with some humour!

-- Andreas' Logo he uses for his branding, he is fun. That is the top of his head, looking down.


He travels the world preaching the Bitcoin, Liberty, Crypto and Blockchain gospel and is one of the most well respected lecturers and teachers in the crypto world!

Today's Video & Notes by Andreas:

Notes on this video from Andreas:

How do bitcoin ATMs work? How easy is it to spend bitcoin?

Some will allow you to transfer both ones, but ATMs in most countries are often one-way "vending machines." Circulating bitcoin helps grow the economy. I get paid in bitcoin and I pay others in bitcoin. There are many things you can buy with bitcoin, including flights, hotels, and products on Amazon. Bitcoin is first and foremost the currency of the internet.

I always include a library of AA's videos in these posts, just like he does in every one of his YT channel videos. These are things for you to use, save, watch, share, and learn from if you have time now or come back to later if you wish. It's here to help you, with extra resources.


This resource showed up in my email inbox recently, have a watch, share it with those who are learning.

Please note -- I will have limited internet access for awhile -- so PLEASE do not be upset that I cannot reply right away, or to everyone. I am dealing with some changes, and will have limited time online and will be happy if I get a few blog posts up a week.
This has really upset some people but I do not force my opinions on others, or need to communicate every detail of my life or issues, most people do not care anyways. I invested around 10 hours or more a day on Steemit most of my first 13 mths here, I just do not have that time in my life right now, and that includes for replies and voting/curation.
I have done my best, sorry if you do not understand like some are clearly having a problem with. It's a blogging platform, and I will do my best at everything, and to keep blogging.
Carry On.


Thanks for this I quiet like Andreas teaching/presentations. Recently watched one of his presentations in SA. I am going through all the videos one by one.
