Every once and a while, there’s a quirky little story that pops up about people who attempt to live on bitcoin.
Crazy concept, right? Not everyone thinks so.
If you recall, PYMNTS interviewed a newlywed couple in June 2015 who spent their first 90 days of marriage living and traveling on bitcoin and bitcoin only. Their conclusion: Glad they did it but glad it was only 90 days.
Now, imagine taking that number and adding about 1,000 to it. And try thinking about what it would be like to live on bitcoin for 1,095 days (three years). Well, you don’t have to imagine if you’re Olaf Carlson-Wee, a 26-year-old who works for Coinbase, a bitcoin startup.
