If time is money, then you should put EOS on your watch.
This isn’t financial advice; it is time advice. What good is a Lambo, if you don’t have time to ride around in it? What good is a beautiful house if you’re barely spending time in it? The most important thing money can buy you is time – time to kick back and enjoy the life you’ve built. That’s why you get people who retire early and those who can’t afford to retire.
Most people wish they never had to work another day in their life. They go to work so this can one day become a reality. I can even argue that no one likes to work, and those who seem to love it only do so because of the benefits they gain as a result, such as the beautiful house, nice car… financial freedom basically. Very few can even afford to do the kind of work they enjoy.
Otherwise, most of us would rather do without it. But due to responsibilities we’re sort of forced to go out and be productive from 9am-5pm each day. Finally, we get paid, only for money to quickly disappear as we spend it on kids’ school fees, groceries, transportation, mortgage, and healthcare, should you be so lucky. Don’t have these responsibilities yet? Don’t worry time always has a way of piling them up the older you get.
However, this is slowly changing.
We are entering an age where most jobs will be conducted remotely. First of all, the global economy is realizing how fragile current systems are and how this is affecting the progress of our world. Secondly, workers have been personally affected and have to now rely on government assistance in order to support their own families. Except for the kids, they are loving it! They get to play online video games with their friends from school and around the neighborhood. As far as they’re concerned the world just got better.
Welcome to the future!
You and I know where the world is headed with blockchain and cryptocurrencies. Baby boomers don’t get it yet, but millennial’s and those that follow them understand this world. They grew up in it through video games, TV shows, and movies. It’s a reality that hasn’t come to pass yet, but we’ve always understood its inevitability. Since we are already here – ahead of most our peers – it means we’ve been fortunate enough to afford the time to be learning about the future as it unfolds. Fortunate to be reading this article in real-time, yet ahead of when it all becomes a reality for the world.
They say history repeats itself, which is true because although the years might change, time in our day-to-day lives is measured in seconds, minutes, and hours, before it resets to start all over again. The only difference about tomorrow is that we would have achieved some things today that make past time a measurement of our progress. Put bluntly, all things have an expiry date. Events come and go, so do systems that govern society. Life is ever evolving; our language, the way we travel, money, culture, and the way we live in general. Blockchain is here to revolutionize most of those things.
Ever since the world’s economy stopped backing fiat currency with gold, society has been in a race against time. While the ownership of gold meant people could afford more time in the future; fiat currency took away all that wealth and placed society in a never ending rat race. Which is to wake up, go to work, earn money, pay the bills, and then repeat the cycle all over again. It’s sounds more like imprisonment – you aren’t afforded time to do anything else.
EOS flips the entire script and sends us back to a time when money was a scarce commodity. A time when saving meant you’d be able to afford more in the future. Since money was scarce it meant prices would continue to decline over time, or perhaps a more accurate perspective is that the value of money continued to increase over time. This is back when time used to be a dear friend, unlike the present where money can be your worst enemy as it loses value overtime.
Time this, time that. You may be getting Fed up of hearing about time, but that’s the point. Nothing is more valuable than time because he who has it is truly living. Don’t get me wrong we all have time, it’s just that if you’re not spending it doing the things you’d rather do, then is it really yours?
The beauty of EOS is that it is more of a money than fiat could ever be – it’s not even close. Fiat is controlled by a few individuals whose goals are to enrich themselves with more time to do as they please, while getting other people to spend their time chasing this fiat illusion. Thus, in a fiat system, we all are servants of these few individuals. To make it harder for us to escape the fiat illusion they implement taxation and rates and rising prices, until the only way to survive is to partake in the system.
90 percent of the population works for money, in other words are servants of money. Only 10 percent of the population get money to work for them. EOS once again flips the script. EOS works for its owner, doing all the work necessary to enrich them. As a holder of EOS you are left with a whole lot of time to do other things. You can use this spare time to invest it in getting more EOS or spend it with family and friends. Just as long as you can still afford to pay bills in the real world, because the unfortunate reality is that the physical world is still under the spell of fiat and it’s ever rising demands. Where if you don’t have enough money to last a lifetime, then you’ll get thrown back into the rat race to try and make more.
There are blockchain systems that have a mechanism that’s terribly familiar with that of the fiat system. You know; systems that slowly eat away at your net worth until you have nothing left. And just when you’re out of money they throw you out to the streets because you can no longer afford to be in the “system”.
Putting EOS to work
EOS is a system built for the people by the people – that truly liberates people in ways they can’t begin to imagine. Unlike other blockchain systems where each time you transact you give up a bit of your net worth, in other words, give up your ability to continue to have access to their systems. We’ve seen it happen before; the more people partake in the systems, the more expensive it becomes for the average Joe to stick around.
Such a blockchain system means your days on it are numbered, as soon as you can’t afford to pay the bills (fees) then you get kicked out of them. Sending you back to slaving away for money so you can gain access once more. This sounds awfully familiar to the cycle of the fiat system – 90% (or more) of the people pay fees to the 10% (or less) who control it i.e miners. In a free society people shouldn’t be charged, either through taxation or fees, in order to interact with its systems.
Whereas making EOS work for you is as simple as saving it; not in a bank or any third-party application, but in your own account which you have complete control of. While there your EOS never sleeps, it’s always working to keep the system in which it operates safe and secure. And every time it does its job it comes back and gives its salary to you, while taking nothing for itself. Every day, EOS goes out, puts in all the hard work, only to bring all of what it earned back to its owner. This might sound cruel to some people. Good!
That’s exactly how the fiat system works, except the cruelty is against real humans – beings that are capable of much more than slaving away for a system whose mission is to keep it that way. Each morning we wake up to go make money that by the time we have it in our hands, millions more has been printed to lower its value. Thus, the question to ask yourself each morning is whether you’ll be working to fuel a system that oppresses society or one that’s trying to liberate it.
