Welcome to the B4B Blog

Providing tools, tips, and techniques for promoting Bitcoin for global economic empowerment. I claim no expertise. I read fast and write slowly. I hope you will find something useful. There are some older posts here from my deep dive into the Lightning Network. You can also follow me on Twitter @cstack.

Top 10 Voices in Bitcoin

I have been following Bitcoin and crypto for the past 5 years. I have spent the last 18 months in a COVID-induced deep dive. I have read all the Bitcoin books, bought some Bitcoin, listened to hundreds of hours of podcasts, mined some Bitcoin, downloaded and tested every Bitcoin/Lightning wallet, attended the Bitcoin 2021 Conference in person, created 5 Bitcoin/Lightning nodes, and launched a website – BitcoinForBillions.org. I have listened to hundreds of voices from toxic Bitcoin maximalists to extreme skeptics and everyone in between.

In order to help others along their Bitcoin discovery path, I thought providing a list of the most important voices I have encountered might be helpful. Twitter has generally become the focal point for most Bitcoin commentary, so in addition to name and role, I include each person’s Twitter address.

The next Bitcoin macro narrative will be the ability of the Bitcoin Lightning Network to deliver national, community, and individual economic empowerment.
