Welcome to our brand new website entirely devoted to Bitcoin and You! This very first “update” post is to introduce ourselves as well as to set out how everything will work on the site and why. We’ve spent over a decade educating people online and are real world experts in Bitcoin, IT, Software Development, Engineering and Science. So what do we do around here?
We help smart people like you learn how to safely and privately buy, use, invest and grow wealthy with Bitcoin 🥳
Who Are We?
It’s a secret 🤫
Fame is a one way door and we prefer privacy and to stay anon. We also prefer to focus on helping the world learn about Bitcoin and improve Wealth Inequality instead of flexing on Instagram 🙄
And yes, there are more than one writers here. From full stack software developers to telecommunication engineers and more, we fundamentally understand the core technologies that power Bitcoin (code and the Internet). Software and Networks are our bread and butter, which is why our content will always be a step above the rest.
Why We’re Here
To help smart people like you learn how to safely and privately buy, use, invest and grow wealthy with Bitcoin. It really is that simple.
We believe this decade is a fleeting window for you to build wealth. A shift unlike anything seen before in history and this shift is enabled by Bitcoin. For the first time people of all races, genders, locations and financial levels can do this, not just the rich white elites.
This is true, global, financial equality and inclusion and we believe this global adoption will happen by 2035 at the latest. By this point, Bitcoin will be as widely adopted and ingrained into every corner of existence as the internet and computers are now.
This asymmetric investment opportunity is akin to the Internet in size, but a crucial difference this time around is that investing in it is available to everyone.

The Different Levels
Understanding Bitcoin is a journey, so in order to help welcome different people at different levels all posts and newsletters are helpfully tagged into one of three levels:
- Beginner: A beginner is someone who knows either nothing or very little about Bitcoin. They will likely own no bitcoins at all or maybe have bought some on an exchange one time, but it’s a very small, non-life-changing amount usually around the “pocket money” levels. At this stage we mainly focus on teaching Bitcoin basics and guiding you through buying and taking self custody of your first sats
- Advanced: Now that you know more about Bitcoin than 99.9% of the population (sad we know), the main focus of the Advanced level is to significantly enhance your security and privacy. At this stage your Bitcoin investments will likely have grown through purchases or price appreciation and as a result should be around what you might keep in a bank savings account
- Expert: At this final stage you should know quite a bit about how Bitcoin works and have used it extensively. You’re also likely starting to or already are storing an appreciable amount of your net worth in Bitcoin. As such, the main focus of the Expert level is to fully ensure your significant investments are as safe and private as they can be
These different levels also help ensure those that aren’t ready for Expert topics aren’t confused and scared away just as those that are too advanced for Beginner topics aren’t bored and leave. For a more detailed outline on exactly what each of these levels are and importantly what abilities you should master before progressing onto the next check out: Understanding Bitcoin: The Irresistible Journey.

It’s pretty trivial for any spammer or Nigerian Prince to setup a rouge social media presence and pretend to be someone they’re not. They can do this hundreds of times per second now thanks to sophisticated bots, so to get a full list of other places besides https://www.athena-alpha.com that you’ll find us online, check out our official Social Media list. If it’s not on this list, it’s a fake account!
Who Finances The Content?
There are no investors, no share holders that we need to maximise profits for or sponsors that we need to obey. None of that bullshit. This website and it’s content is all funded by our Athena Alpha Pro paid members and us. This also means we don’t steal your data and sell it to privacy invading shitbox companies. If that ever changes, we’ll let you know.
Subscribe of course and get ready to take the orange pill! Many of your peers are already using Bitcoin, you just going to sit there and miss out on the greatest wealth transfer in human history over the next 10 years? Of course not.
Whether it’s to the Free or Pro newsletters it doesn’t matter. Subscribe and share with everyone you think might be interested. If you’re already a Bitcoiner then you can even subscribe with Bitcoin! Tomorrow, our first piece drops. A seminal deep dive into what a is Bitcoin.
