Steven Stradbrooke’s long and varied writing career has seen him paid in all sorts of fiat currencies over the years, but he became fascinated by the potential of cryptocurrencies following his unsuccessful efforts to pay off his bar tab with Stradbucks™ back in the late 90s. He ended up transferring his allegiance to Bitcoin after the Federal Reserve began quantitative easing itself out of existence in 2008. His motto remains: if you need more than 21 million of anything, it’s not worth it.
