The room provided to me by the Litecoin Foundation gave us the space to figure out how to do this, and the Wild West Crypto Show guys kindly helped us get the message out there even in the process phase. While I was making this piece, I re-discovered the Andreas Antonopolous talk about the five stages of grief for banks. It captures well in spoken form why the mission of Didi & his family has weight beyond any individual, company or group in this space.
There is a natural openness in Didi’s eyes in this piece. He holds the sign up like a beacon to passing ships. Not forcing it upon anyone, but inspiring people, through example, to see the benefits. The message is also attached to an ascetic lifestyle, important values, and family. The crypto space, sometimes for good reasons, is full of vitriol. What gets lost in the process is the vital aspect of new people coming in. The ones educating, working as ambassadors outward, are a lot rarer than we’d like to think. The mission is loftier than we, these days, give ourselves credit for. It would be interesting to know how many people toxic Twitter bullshit has turned away out of the people who wandered into CT through natural curiosity? This is why people like Didi deserve to be elevated even higher than where they already are. The ones with the big picture in mind, putting real skin in the game to inspire others, deserve all the respect for doing work for all of us that have lost our virginity a long time ago. In a sense, he also refers to things that can’t be taken away from us.
