Robert Breedlove | Blockchain Wellness: How To Use Bitcoin For Your Freedom, Health & Vitality

“Bitcoin is this pattern of pure honesty; there is nothing hidden. It's an open-sourced code and it's definable so that no matter which way you look at it, you see it in its totality. If money is such an important pattern for the human species, doesn't it make sense that an honest, truthful, sincere pattern like that would resonate with us? In the same way that fiat currency corrupted our character and our souls, doesn't it make sense that this incorruptible money would cleanse us of that?” – Robert Breedlove

PaleoValley's 100% Grass-Fed Beef Sticks

Paleovalley 100% Grass Fed Beef Sticks are the only beef sticks in the USA made from 100% grass fed/grass finished beef and organic spices that are naturally fermented.

Their 100% Grass Fed Beef Sticks are unlike anything else on the market. In fact, they were recently voted in Paleo Magazine as one of the top snacks of the year.

The reason is that they are committed to making the highest quality, clean products that are free from problematic ingredients.

Their beef comes from 100% grass fed cows raised entirely on natural grass pastures by family farmers right here in the USA. As a result they are healthy and happy.

PaleoValley's Pasture-Raised Turkey Sticks

Paleovalley Pasture-Raised Turkey Sticks were created to make healthy snacking easier.

Their turkey sticks are made from turkeys who are allowed to live as nature intended… on organic grass pastures with plenty of sunshine, fresh air and room to exercise. The result of raising turkeys in such a natural way is a much healthier, clean protein with higher levels of vitamins, minerals, and omega-3s.

Unfortunately, virtually all turkey in the USA is conventionally raised with a small portion being “free range” – a virtually meaningless term that simply means the turkeys were allowed access to the outdoors. However, most “free range” turkeys only have access to an outdoor dirt field with no pasture in sight.

Their truly pasture-raised turkeys are given full access to outdoor, pesticide-free pasture with plenty of grass and insects for them to nibble on.

Power Quotes From The Show

If the integrity of money is a core contributor to the integrity of civilization, that is one useful way to look at the value of bitcoin. We have for the first time in history, a perfectly predictable money. - @Breedlove22 Click To Tweet

The Integrity of Money & Blockchain

“If the integrity of money is a core contributor to the integrity of civilization, that is one useful way to look at the value of bitcoin. We have for the first time in history, a perfectly predictable money. It's a fixed supply of 21 million; no one can change it and no political force can do anything about it. No government can outlaw it, sanction it, or seize it. If it's custodied properly, it cannot be seized and that is very important. If it cannot be inflated that's very important. Bitcoin is the first property right that is independent.” – Robert Breedlove

What is Money?

“Money is a device for expressing value across spacetime. Gold was great for expressing value across time, but not space. Currency is great for expressing value across space, but not time. Bitcoin is the only money optimized for the expression of value across both space and time.” – Robert Breedlove

How Fiat Currency Controls Us

“Fiat currency is about control. It's about wanting to project a mental model onto the world and wanting everyone to be a chess piece in that mental model so you can be moved around like a cog in a machine. Humans are not cogs in a machine; we're dynamic, complex self-sovereign systems. To try and reduce someone to a piece on a chessboard just doesn't work. This idea of control has been with us forever and we've been wrestling with this as a species since the beginning of time.” – Robert Breedlove
