Santiago Varela was a Bitcoin miner and writer from Mexico City. When his sister turned eighteen this year, he wanted to give her an unconventional gift that would set her on the path to financial freedom. He knew that his sister would be surprised by this gift, but he was sure she would understand the value of it in the long run.
Santiago wrote a letter to his sister explaining the gift he was giving her. In it, he outlined the reasons why he thought this was the best gift he could give her. He wanted her to be a sovereign woman in a fiat world where dishonest relationships have been normalized. He also hoped that Bitcoin could provide her with the opportunity to explore potential career paths for her future.
With the letter, Santiago also gave his sister a copy of “The Bitcoin Standard” by Saifedean Ammous. He asked her to read the prologue of the book, which he thought was the perfect starting point for her orange-pilling journey. The prologue is a quote which states that the book does not offer investment advice, but aims to help readers understand the economic properties of the network and its operation.
To go along with the book, Santiago also gave his sister a hardware wallet. This was a physical device that stores cryptocurrencies. He wanted her to be able to protect her coins and understand the basics of how to use them.
Santiago was sure that his sister would find value in his gift. He knew that it might take her some time to fully understand the concept, but he was confident that she would eventually come to appreciate the gift he had given her. He hoped that it would help her become financially free and provide her with a potential career path for the future.
