Introduction

“The Scriptures are shallow enough for a babe to come and drink without fear of drowning and deep enough for theologians to swim in without ever reaching the bottom.”

- St. Jerome

“The principles of Bitcoin are shallow enough for a babe to come and drink without fear of drowning and deep enough for mathematicians to swim in without ever reaching the bottom”

Wisdom cries aloud in the street,
in the markets she raises her voice;
at the head of the noisy streets she cries out;
at the entrance of the city gates she speaks:
“How long, O simple…


This is a written statement declaring publicly the intentions, motives, and views of Mission:Bitcoin. Mission, to the extent that we are on mission with God, the giver of absolute Truth. And Bitcoin, to the extent that the intentions enumerated below are made possible uniquely at this time because of the truths and freedoms Bitcoin offers.

Being on mission with God means that we identify with the historical Judeo-Christian God, that He sent His Son, Jesus, to die for our sins, and that He rose from the dead and conquered death to give each one of us a new life in…


What Is The “Citadel”

“The Citadel first emerged as a tongue in cheek post on Reddit where a supposed time traveler from the year 2025 had come back in time to the year 2013 to warn Bitcoiners of what a Bitcoin future would look like. The future was a world where most world governments had ceased to exist due to a lack of ability to collect taxes as the world embraced Bitcoin. Early adopters, called “earlies”, became insanely rich and those of old fiat wealth who converted before the full takeover were at extreme risk of violence and sought refuge…


Whatever Bitcoin might be it undoubtedly is a force to be reckoned with. It has a life of its own, and thus arguably, it is best described as a living thing. * @dergigi

Can anymore be written about Bitcoin that we do not already know? Yes! Do we know all there is to know about Bitcoin? No!

In a recent podcast with Preston Pysh, Alyse Killeen discusses smart contracts on the base-layer of Bitcoin which was only recently discovered as a possibility within the past 12–24 months. — episode BTC031. It’s remarkable that a technology that has existed for over…


“There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heavens. The Lord has made everything beautiful in its time. He has also set eternity in the human heart; yet no one can fathom what God has done from beginning to end. I know that there is nothing better for people than to be happy and to do good while they live. That each of them may eat and drink and find satisfaction in all their toil — this is the gift of God. I know that everything God does will endure forever; nothing can be…


“Bitcoin has a correcting function. Understanding Bitcoin and the myriad of disciplines it covers and the problems it will fix, forces error correction in other areas of our thinking. However, man is not machine. He is not math. Man can be both rational and irrational. We can love and hate. We can choose or not choose. If man is math or machine, then A=A; B=B and A ≠ B. But that’s not how man works. Our current presuppositional thinking about man cannot explain why man does not have an internal mathematical correcting action. Bitcoin is a genius invention, but it…


Francis A. Schaeffer

“The madness of this world became obvious in an instant. Everything is changing way faster than most of us ever imagined — but I’m not worried. To the contrary, I’m weirdly optimistic — because of Bitcoin, and because of you.” [1]

This madness will likely continue when information coming from trusted institutions is contradictory, confusing, frustrating and eye-opening. Our institutions have failed us. Any semblance of trust has evaporated — overnight. Can we trust our governments, academic institutions, or our financial institutions? How much do we trust science and medicine now? How much do we trust big tech?

Bitcoin is…


Proof of work (POW) is the bridge between the physical world and the digital. It is a digital task and a mechanism of mathematics that proves you have a real cost in the real world… Bitcoin is a money defined and defended through physics with proof of work (POW) and the SHA-256 encryption algorithm. SHA-256 allows us to overcome a limitation of thermodynamics in the actual physical realm with the use of an insanely large number to defend the Bitcoin network.

The encryption of Bitcoin allows us to pick one number at random which no one can guess — ever…


The Apostle Paul at the Areopagus in Athens (49–50 AD)

“People of Crypto Twitter! I see that in every way you are very zealous. For as I spend time on Twitter and look carefully at your coins of devotion, I even found a coin with these properties: an immutable coin. So you are ignorant of the very thing you seek — a perfect coin that will bring human freedom and wealth to all and this is what I am going to proclaim to you.”

This is a “crypto” version of one of the most famous passages in the historical true life of the Apostle Paul (a 1st century Jewish convert…


To what extent can we know all things about Bitcoin? Can we know all there is to know? If we cannot know all there is, does that make our knowledge about it true or false? To what extent can we know all things about the origins of life? Can we know all there is to know? If we cannot, does that make our knowledge about it true or false?

Let’s start with Bitcoin. Most all who have a basic understanding of Bitcoin know of its origin story. A cypherpunk by the name Satoshi Nakamoto created the basic code and cryptography…
