Bitcoin Must Burn The Ships – Bitcoin Magazine


This is an opinion editorial by Interstellar Bitcoin, a contributor to Bitcoin Magazine.

Whether we like it or not, Bitcoiners still live in a world built on fiat currency. Fiat rules everything around us, from the food we eat to the houses we live in. Until we “burn the ships,” we are not prepared to realize our eventual victory.

hernan cortes leading Spanish army

In 1519, Hernán Cortés led a Spanish army to modern-day Mexico to conquer the Aztec Empire. Upon landfall, two leaders mutinied to return to Cuba at the order of the governor who had commissioned the fleet Cortés led. In response, Cortés scuttled his fleet to forestall any future mutiny by closing the sole path of retreat.

Against all odds, Cortés went on to defeat an opposing force of over 300,000 Aztecs, a few thousand Spaniards, superior military technology, an unforeseen smallpox outbreak, and shrewd political alliances ultimately prevailed.

Many of those on the expedition had never seen combat before, including Cortés himself. Historians will point to August 13, 1521, as the final victory of the Spanish campaign against the Aztec Empire. However, Cortés truly won the moment he “burned the ships.”
