Dear crypto community and blockchain buddies across the globe welcome back to season TWO of Cryptonites! We are the no BS blockchain channel built with the community, for the community and we are here to give you another timeless interview with a crypto influencer and a wonderful girl, crypto Sara! Lovely to have you! Woooo! Ahhh you do it the proper way and it so old so come on guys you have to move with time Everything is moving on and the fist bump has to move on as well! Yeah right that's our signature thing but on to you Crypto Sara, you have done such amazing stuff for in this space, you're active on YouTube you're active on Twitter, you're educating people and you're becoming a role model in this space, so thank you so much for your contribution

Thank you so much for having me around honestly it's amazing to be a part of Cryptonites and have an opportunity to be interviewed by you, so thank you for that as well Thank you so much So my first question for you Yeah I would love to know what brought you into this space, why did you all of a sudden become fascinated or passionate about Bitcoin and altcoins and tell us a little bit about yourself The story basically yeah so I've always been passionate about traveling I've always enjoyed traveling when I was at university in the summer time I would go away like go interrailing in Europe and I actually ended up failing my second year at uni and I ended up working and traveling even more and then one day, I just sat down and I collected all the money that I had, all the coins all the ten thousand of something you know like I'm gonna Hungarian whatever currency they've got there that's worth like a penny and you can't even exchange it and I was sitting there I was like what am I gonna do with it it's just you know it's like you know my collection jar and then my boyfriend actually started talking about this thing Bitcoin died he was used to used that you can pay for stuff cheaper like a membership for example if you pay with bitcoins like cheaper so I start digging into it and then I was like oh my god this solves all the problems that I had with all the coins or this / money that I can never use the wasted Fiat basically and and I go passionate about it I was over two years ago now we're going to October so it's pretty much over two years now and ever since I just take on all kinds and honestly it changed my life and I am so glad I became a part of it with obviously so much going into the market there's so much to learn about it so this is just my start story of how I got involved into the space but I'm sure everyone's got their own story and whatever leads to you being a part of the community I think that's what the butters I always say that I'm sure you're married you've got a lovely baby but that's giving us all the toys whilst we're sitting here and I think that one thing that people should actually focus on is if you've got a partner tell them about crypto educate them you know people are complaining that there isn't enough women within the space you know and speak to your wife so your partner's about the space you know you're attending events tell them why don't you come with me a there's a lot of women I mean there isn't many women which is one of the reason I like the event crypto events because I can just go to a toilet and I don't have to queue but yeah I got a bit off-topic that yeah kupo is a great space and I want to see you were coming anyone getting involved in an issue it's just reading the white paper I mean that's a really good piece of advice just telling the people you love your partner or your siblings or something like that how do you frame it you know it's it's very complicated do you have any easy analogies on how you like to explain different parts of the block chain or how do you try to educate people who know nothing about this um so basically I think you have to have a little bit of understanding about how money works majority of people hasn't got it because at schools learn or the I don't know how it's all in English because I am NOT English I can't say all the mathematical terms but you learn everything at school by Jax you've learned a real life you leave school without knowing how to pay a tax you don't know how actually how governments work how money the voting systems know exactly explain to us you know that the important things are not really taught at schools and half tweeted ones of how would you explain Bitcoin to a six-year-old you know perfect yeah and people obviously gave you know that's it's digital money it's like you can exchange CAD disk with your friends and you don't have to ask mommy for a permission see their exact words that you can explain it to people so we see what I speak to my family members I don't give him a candy example but I basically tell to them that you're it's your money you don't need to get involved with a bank and obviously because my family is broad when they try and send me money when I was saying emergency but I was horrible you know PayPal charges 4% fees per transaction Western Union it's not much better so critical areas to give you this opportunity of just being your own bank and sending it over so very often I use that as an example but if that does work and it doesn't convince them that I just force it upon them and I'd basically do it by giving them a Christmas gift of crypto you know it's it's it's a concept I always try to inspire around Christmastime being like hey guys why don't you give crypto to your family you know just give them $100 worth of Bitcoin it's sort of whatever you believe in and just tell them you know just holla let's see how it goes and then your thing we later because they always end up thinking yeah so I've got some gifts for crypto last year and now everyone loves me and my family you know that is so 3k and it was 12 K like I'm like in your hero just listen to me did you just end up taking your mom's phone and downloading a wallet and I'm gonna send you something or how did that work out exactly so I basically uh yeah pretty much that's how it was so open my uh my wallet all my phone and I told him um download this app and sure it was Christmas Eve and she was like what are you doing I've got so much cooking to do what do you want me to do okay mom just downloaded i explained to you later and she was sitting there and I was like just open this app and then something came up and Confirmation good confirmed so what's happening what's this funny what is this and I was like I just send you some Bitcoin and she's like what no way so yeah it was fairly understandable to how easy and quick it is she doesn't understand it bless her but you know you don't have to understand it to actually use it exactly I mean majority of people has no idea how internet works and they use it every day absolutely until I bought the adoption so I just ended up sending it to her and then she said I'm a hero so that's one testing you know I love that kid's explanation that you have it's you know like being able to have candies to your friends without your mom confiscating it that is hilarious I remember back in the day actually my brother got me it's a crypto by doing the same thing he sent me some aetherium actually yeah and that just got me curious and what is this worth and I started looking into it and got interested so that's a great approach yeah exactly so just one of the ways they can bring it abroad the other day cuz I like to think of how an average Joe can get into criticals at the end of the day that's what really matters and I tweeted the other day @altcoinsara if people are not following me I'll promote myself and basically when you go to a store even though you know they're not accepting Bitcoin just ask like oh gee I accept Bitcoin they'll probably say no but you'll bring the idea to their mind you might possibly educate someone and you might improve their business and today I actually spoke to people about this idea as I'm around here in London there's lots of crypto people around so it was great a 14-2 mention my idea and they actually said is that they've done it once to a business and they said I actually changed their business no one paid in Bitcoin but because they started accepting bigger and they start appearing in the news newspapers and basically they stole grew as the place that it's the crypto store and people just go there to shop just because this Bitcoin accepted there even though no one pays within it it helped in business there are so many ways that culture can contribute without actually he's acting as a crypto so I think people need to actually realize that it doesn't have to be cross-border payments it can be something just as simple as hi she exited oh yeah that is genius yeah because maybe by asking in money many times there's one person is gonna be like maybe I should get a Bitcoin terminal or maybe I should find a way to to create a wallet or something like that okay the sort of curiosity and just you know if you go back to that story can ask the same question or they can ask you questions it's it's fantastic it's such a simple way it doesn't have to be anything complicated for people to actually get going with crypto that is fascinating I have to ask you obviously you're very active on Twitter you're sharing lots of really good information what in if you can recall what are the best tweets or the responses that you had that really you know made that light bulb go ding you know and really think oh that is a really interesting angle or have you learned any cool things through Twitter yes I did you have put me on the spot yes however I like to basically the way I am on Twitter is the way I am in real life so I often post daft ideas so just come to my head I'm like I probably shouldn't have to be at that but I just like to be sometimes Savage I took at the point across and before sometimes say oh that's way too much and I'm like well it's the facts you know like I like to roast some sort of communities that are like maxi's people say I'm a bit climax because I'm tweet about all conference but that's absolutely not the case but communities such as like XRP community a verge community they're very focused on their token and if you create a tweet about anything oh my god it can literally be like I had potatoes for dinner someone will come it XRP is the standard and that is literally the rule that's exactly what happens they just so focused on spreading the word out I think they need to calm down a little bit and because they such an easy target I like to laugh at them hello and people would have likely like they just don't like whether you laughs are they token basically so yeah it's it's really tribalistic right if you're almost like football hooligans here and in the UK ride my blockchain they said watching that how do you feel about so I was watching a video on Roger Ver the other day and he was really emotional about how Bitcoin maximalist are almost like the extremist religious people who are not open and really fixed minded and not open to anything else besides Bitcoin how do you view them in generally speaking these Bitcoin maximalist and so before I say anything I'll go huge respect to Roger Ver for he's one of the first people pioneers within the space so he deserves huge props from anyone and you have to respect them are regardless of what he tries to bake bacon cash us and I do agree what he actually said because you have to be open to the space at the end of the day everyone knows what Bitcoin is, barely anyone knows what litecoin is, maybe some people know what ripple is so bigger it's really all that matters but at the end of the day it's about the success of the blockchain and cryptocurrencies fear for the mass adoption so you have to broaden up a little bit you don't have to invest in it however you have to accept that there are different ideas smart contracts the platform's it's not just all about bitcoins so they have to calm down a little bit and I don't often agree with Roger however I do agree with him a bit and people say that crypto Twitter and the whole crypto space feels a bit like a religion like yeah and I it does a little bit you know because you end up having conversations with people that I understand this space and you dis aren't a little bit insane to them because they're like what are you even talking about like how is because because they don't understand the principles of money and I'm not saying I do it's only been two years something into space however you bring such a little but you've realized that their money actually doesn't work and the sooner people realize that the better will be for them and if it's gonna be big who's gonna be the solution then fantastic you know we're sorted if it's gonna be a different solution whatever solution krypter brings out it's what matters is that it works it helps people improve people's in property life and I think that's what people should really focus or not what's gonna be the best it's a maxi sort of a behavior and I am against it yeah that makes a lot of sense I saw comment the other day they're saying like bitcoin is the mother of all blockchain so no matter what you've made you need to respect Bitcoin because without Bitcoin we wouldn't have this as a new asset class do you agree that you know a lot of people tend to bash Bitcoin saying it's slow its costly etc but do you think we should all respect Bitcoin for creating this type of oh yes of course of course well like he said without bacon we wouldn't have been here there wouldn't be I don't know how many thousands of different cryptocurrencies there is Carole I think it's like 2600 right now market cap up the ridiculous amount however Baker hours like to compare they come and I think of it like to a big company such as Apple you know you get Bitcoin you get quality you know it's got a reputation everyone else will because everyone knows whether iPhone is and it's sort of same principle I used with the tech company and I do with with cryptocurrency you have to respect Bitcoin if it wasn't for it we wouldn't have been here it wouldn't be an idea of a smart contracts blockchain probably it did exist back in the day but it wasn't the same as that it's not the development wasn't there and even though that bitcoin is slow it takes forever to transact you know people joke about that if you were to pay for Bitcoin in a coffee shop your coffee would have been cold by the time the transaction got confirmed you know but I said sure because they're like the network is improving and there is development happening and Rickon has proven itself without having any sort of fun phrasing without having a CEO without having an office and that's why you have to respect it because it didn't had what every other project has I mean we don't even know who the hell created Bitcoin I love it I love the fact that we've done I think it's like the cherry on top that we don't even know whose Nakamoto is it's amazing like so actually my biggest fear Sara is the fact that if we see satoshis original wallet move like for me that would be the biggest fear because not just knowing who said she is but just seeing like a wallet transaction would worry me because then all of a sudden people start thinking that person's looking for money and it breaks down the principles and values and stuff like that do we need to know who was that so she is in your opinion absolutely fine without knowing god bless him whoever it is whether it's a group of people over there whether if it's a one person I really don't care god bless you thank you for Bitcoin is the best thing ever we we wouldn't be sitting here and having this chat so Satoshi some people who refer to them as a god yeah I think it's a little bit too much but yeah of course you can have it like that but I think most interesting about so she is if the all the crazy price prediction for bacon will become reality and bacon will actually go to 1 million per coin with his wallet value he'll be the first trillionaire in the world and I think this is a sort of title he deserves to have the first and only trillionaire really wish it happens because it'll be just a slap into all the billionaires face that would be so cool that'd be so cool in terms of Bitcoin itself like obviously you post a lot and I remember seeing up one of your posts talking about how money itself loses value through inflation but what is for you one of the best arguments supporting Bitcoin like if you have a girlfriend likes talking about Bitcoin like if you had to choose one thing that you love about Bitcoin what would you tell her him the exclusivity it's only you know it's only 21 million coins you're in the club get on the board get some Bitcoin I mean to have just the I think it's point not not to eight right now I'll have to calculate because I always forget a zero but it's point not to eight of Bitcoin you can have for every person in a world to have Sun that is worth around thirty dollars it's probably less with the current dip that we had the other day it's even less than $30 I mean that's how much it costs and I know I take away pizza as how much it costs you know instead of spending that money just put into Bitcoin and be part of the club you know they say that there's a 1 million club, there is a one Bitcoin club, there's six point to just be a part of it and I think that's what's fantastic I said before that I'm not gonna disclose how much I have but I will always have one Bitcoin within my world I'll never sell it ever I just want to be able to say that I've got one Bitcoin and I am happy with it maybe a bit selfish of me but it's sort of I don't know it's like it's not a collection it's so collectible but it's something that not anyone can have if I don't decide to move it it's not gonna move so that's why I think it's so special that's why it's special to me I think that that makes a lot a lot of sense you know since you're such a great educator Sarah so you're talking about contracts earlier and I love your analogy of the candy thing with kids it's so cute if you had to educate people watching out there about a smart contract you have any other analogies that you use to explain different types of of what's happening here in the crypto space I don't have an analogy for smart contracts so sorry about that I don't have no I have never thought of it however he can expect a tweet and I'll let you know I heard one interesting angle the other days one of my buddies actually this was more than two years ago but he was saying that what do you think about this tell me your opinion he was saying that a smart contract is like a handshake with cameras all around where the entire world could see where that handshake is happening and a public court because it's open public source well what do you think about that analogy I mean sounds proper creepy I thought you're gonna go into some like you know people cannot cut their hands and connect or like internally some sort of blood being the block and be verified but I do like the idea you know as creepy as it sounds I'm showing publicly making a business you know cuz you always you should always have a witness of the business that you happen which is basically what smart contract is yeah you've got all the knows I confirmed a year the contract happening yeah it's not about analogy I'll give you that yeah came up with that it was one of my buddies in Tokyo he was like what about this it's a handshake people don't know each other and cameras in a public court and everyone can see I like that right so they can't go back and liar or change anything so I got a question for you Sarah in terms of finding Bitcoin or cryptocurrencies Cryptonite as in what is the biggest barrier we have as of today that you feel is hurting us and something that we need to go through there's actually quite a few things I can think of the user interface is not the easiest it's not hard to purchase Bitcoin however the steps that follow afterwards you know you shouldn't keep your cryptocurrency any sort of crypto asset in exchange not really on your wallet either because there are cabinets are coming up with ways of taking it out of you on it the whole security you know it's not very attractive for someone who doesn't know much about space to hear about all the hacks and all the scams that are happening within it so I think unless something happens with that and it gets stopped or people are always situated about it then it's not going to move much further I mean understanding how it all works is one thing but being safe with your investment because that's what crypto is right now it's still an investment and you you you can't have a possibility of being scammed you can have a possibility of pump and damp those sort of things unless they're gone I think the adoption will take far longer because of that because the products work they weren't sometimes slow something's expensive you know but the opportunity is there and if the security is out there I think I'll work and we'll be fine ah so user experience security scams hacks those are those are the kind of the topics that if someone tells you like all but bitcoin is a scam or cryptocurrencies a scam how do you usually respond to that type of like concern or objection if so earlier I always used to care and respond but now I just turn around and walk away if someone tells you bitcoins just calm just stop talking to them because you don't need that sort of negativity in your life so that's what I do right now but no because I try and ask them like YG's saying it's a scam why do you think this wines got a value of five dollars five less probably I found sorry five pounds Wireless and costs something got a value and they usually can't answer that and if they can't answer that and I sort of say like this is a conversation for a different day we're gonna talk about it here now let's go out and I'll explain to you a little bit more why bitcoin is nice gown that is a really good I think that's a really good question like what value do you think this bill has I remember reading somewhere that a hundred dollar bill actually only costs about twelve cents to print yeah so you know there's $99 point 80 you know eights that is actually just a belief you know just believe that this has value between us yeah exactly so I I've wondered that long before crypto I just looked up money and I was holding two different bills like five pounds and ten pounds for example and I and I was thinking like the only difference between this and this is that this one's got printed five on it and this one's got ten on it nice the only difference that it has within it see like for example I'm I'm polish they got made official on polish and actually the equivalent of one Grosh which is like one cent but far less than one set is worth it's actually more expensive to make it than the value of its they actually going to stop making it because it's just not worth making it so I think that I – shows they sort of an indicator of the Fiat actually starting to slowly fall I mean obviously the situation with even Venezuela that's absolutely horrible what's happening and I wish somehow we could help and also like indicators such as Google Trends searches for example you know like the countries are usually searching are the ones who are needing and sort of begging for help the most like Nigeria is one of the leaders securely with the Google searches and it's really interesting to see that people are looking for the solutions the problem is there and what's fascinating is not the first world countries that are looking for the solution because I think oh it's all good we don't have any problem no it's actually the countries that are perceived as not the most involved ones other ones were actually understanding that this current system is a failure you touch upon so many awesome topics there there's there's one that just made me think of one of the recent sauce of Andreas Antonopoulos about you know Bitcoin being your own private Swiss bank account and he says that you know some people say that okay bitcoin is a store of value for developing countries you mentioned Venezuela, Nigeria where they can't really trust the local authorities Do you think that in terms of people who live like us in developped countries, there is a true need for Bitcoin and cryptocurrency What is your angle for for that? Of course there is of course there is because the system is still exactly the same wherever in the world you are you put your trust into the government you just believe this values go the bills got the value because it's printed it says so whereas we come to currency it's like for example bitcoin is proven itself as an amazing store of value and people say how can you say that they drop down from 20 K to 3 K within a year well a bit over here but it dropped down in value and it's actually incorrect people are focusing people are being people with this they focus on the wrong thing you have to focus on for example on the yearly lows and see that every year even though the price dropped the value of it keeps going up and that's not seen in any other market you know you could have bought like I've bought a gold bar quite a while ago well hey you just say go like five years ago and only doubled a bit more than doubled in its value I mean yeah it's fine it's a steady game and gold has proven itself it's a value years of use however you can't go to a store and actually pay with a gold bar I mean I actually tweeted a while ago is like when was the last time you bought something with a gold and no one actually could answer the back are you being ridiculous you can't look at it like I'm like yes but that's what gold was used to be like it was used to be a payment method until the Federal Reserve came over and all the revolution happened but now bacon is sort of proving itself in the point and even though that's not primal goal a name of bitcoin want to be a peer-to-peer payment method it can also do that and I think that's what people really need to understand that Bitcoin even though slow expensive after mine it work all that related to it it's just one little bit that refers to Bitcoin and I am NOT become a consumer eyes I know we're talking a lot about bitcoins but that's basically because I haven't bought much all coins recently and I don't feel it's fair for me to talk about all coins when I haven't invested in myself so that's why we're talking a lot about Bitcoin all concern you know that makes a lot of sense that makes a lot of sense um and especially like you said you know in terms of gold not only you can't pay with it but you know I'm pretty sure if you give someone three types of gold one that's pure one that's mixed with copper or one that's fake it's very difficult for us to actually identify which one is real or not right and not let alone transferability right like Bitcoin is even though it's expensive you know one dollar which is not that expensive compared to banks and not that slow either to send something across the planet so yeah I agree with you 100% so one question that I'm dying to ask you Sarah is recently there's a lot of buzz I mean for the past three months it's been Facebook Libra everywhere on every headline and you know that of course Facebook Libra was banned in France France took a very strong position against it what is your overall take is this good for Bitcoin is it bad how do you see this and yes so first of all before we say anything about Libre I think people need to realize and the whole concept of Facebook Libra it is just a concept all that is actually there is just to buy paper I mean anyone can write a white paper you know you can copy-paste and just change couple of words and claim it's yours you know it's just an idea and people need to realize that there's nothing happening they've just got a concept here's they've got some partnerships going on potential partnerships but it's nothing actually stabilizer it's nothing for sure why not go through so as much as we focus on it I think we need to always keep that in mind but when I first heard the news about Libra I thought was sort of I'm biased you know it's the first word that comes up to your head you know is what a shit it is this why would they just go away you know we don't need that service in a space but then I actually put a bit of thought of it and I saw it before actually saying on Twitter and I actually realized that even though it just might be stable coin the purpose of it might not be what the end goal is of cryptocurrency it will bring people into the space it will somehow make the adoption happen you know they'll they'll have this shitty Libra thing but then they'll be like what's it on blockchain well there's no it's Bitcoin no and then you start following the steps and I think they'll sort of step of investment will be a little bit different because we're usually do you just get pick on first and then you go into old coins you know you branch out with them well be still sell with a stable coin and they realized that stable coin is nothing basically and especially not Libra it'll bring people in and I think that's a positive thing and regulation is happening around it I mean it is interesting to look at it and what's interesting see how they're much marketing about it and they just said that's good there's an idea about what is stable coin and everyone seems to be listening over it so I'm a bit chilled I don't really care about it you know it's just an idea just an idea that's really well put crypto sorry you're a champ you're posting super active on YouTube scratch on Twitter what is your Twitter for those who don't know you yet where can
