MicroStrategy CEO launches “Bitcoin for Everybody” a free crypto course.
The CEO of MicroStrategy continues to find fresh ways to spread the Bitcoin gospel.
If Bitcoin is a religion, Michael Saylor, MicroStrategy CEO is its high priest.
Since investing an important portion of his company’s treasury last year, he has been saying things like “God’s name is Satoshi,” and likening Bitcoin to a “swarm of cyber hornets serving the goddess of wisdom, feeding on the fire of truth.” He held a conference last week in an attempt to get other publicly-traded companies on board and predicted an “avalanche” of new investors that will join the crusade.
Now Saylor brings Bitcoin to his education-oriented non-profit, Saylor Academy. A new online course that promises to teach “Bitcoin economics, investment, philosophy, and history, and also its technical and practical components,” in a 12-hour package.
Course details seem to echo some of Saylor’s rhetoric: one section, interspersed with quotes from the likes of Coleridge and Mark Twain, claims that Bitcoin will speed humanity’s transformation into a Kardeshev Type I civilization. The Kardeshev system groups hypothetical civilizations into three categories, depending on their ability to tap the energy of the universe – the Type 1 can harness the full energy potential of its planet.
While there is plenty of evidence to suggest that Bitcoin mining is naturally more energy-hungry than the traditional financial system, this is not considered a good thing.
The course is a part of Saylor’s vision for long-term crypto dominance that shouldn’t be too surprising. Consider the origin: MicroStrategy now holds over $3 billion in Bitcoin.
