Why Veterans Find Bitcoin Compelling – Bitcoin Magazine

This is an opinion editorial by Luke Groom is a West Point graduate, Army Engineer Officer, JD-MBA Candidate at Northwestern and part-time strategy associate at Marathon Digital Holdings. His views do not represent any of his organizations.

Within the Bitcoin community, U.S. military service members are sometimes viewed with suspicion. I don’t know where this suspicion comes from. Maybe the libertarian elements of the community are against things that remind them of Big Government. Maybe Left elements of the community are against things that remind them of guns and violence. Maybe people think we are infiltrating the Bitcoin ranks to secretly further the interests of the Military Industrial Complex. I can only speculate. For me, the transition from service member to Bitcoiner is obvious. I will outline three reasons: freedom, responsibility and code. Throughout, I will refer to “military service members” and “Veterans” interchangeably, because they are the same people, just at different periods of life.
