It’s here, we can finally grow food, powered by cryptocurrency!

A currency depends on movement to sustain itself. It needs to be passed around from hand to hand so that it may function as something trusted to hold value. STEEM and SBD for example, mean absolutely nothing if they cannot be exchanged for something else. Yes of course as it stands right now, you can purchase FIAT currencies and many different Crypto-currencies through various exchanges, but what if we could acquire the things we need directly with our beloved Steem coins?
It is time to think about our economic freedom.
As our world seems to be slowly unraveling like an old sweater and we gain more ability to connect with like-minded people across the whole planet, we can learn to become independent or we can follow the masses, do nothing and wait for that brick wall.
If we chose independence, we can learn from one another to become self reliant and while this digital grid keeps us all together, we can achieve freedom from bank fees and waiting times to exchange the goods and services we are looking for.
The best part of it is that our political stance doesn’t matter in this space, all we have to do is follow our passions. Crypto-currency can be an extremely valuable tool for reaching economic freedom. It that can really save both entrepreneurs and consumers the many headaches that come with banks and regulations. Transactions become cheaper and cleaner… no greedy middle men involved!
This makes me think of Agorism, a term I have only heard recently but a term I hear more and more. Here it is in a few words, from wikipedia:
Agorism is a libertarian social philosophy that advocates creating a society in which all relations between people are voluntary exchanges by means of counter-economics, thus engaging with aspects of peaceful revolution.
With that being said, I am happy to announce my second time purchasing something with Crypto directly (I know it’s a small step but a step none the less)!!!
This year’s garden will be partially made of STEEM!!!! I am so happy, it’s a very exciting step in the adoption of cryptocurrency. Thank you for this abundance of seeds @sagescrub, I will enjoy growing this garden in a different way this time!
While I still plan on re-wildling last year’s tomatoes, I would also like to try new things…
I’d like to end this post by saying that homesteading and self reliance extends passed the walls of our homes and gardens. Sure we can barter, but know that bartering is just another currency. If the day comes, when exchanging a grown pig for carpentry work becomes too troublesome, be educated in the exchange procedures of crypto, you never know!
In hopes to on-board new crypto enthusiasts, I wish you all a happy day…
