PRIVATE CRYPTOCURRENCIES: How to Buy, Own, and Use Non-KYC Bitcoin Like a True Radical




Access will be provided to course over email or Telegram

YouTube intro to the course


Your bank accounts are frozen, as is your crypto in that online exchange you trusted. You must flee the country with only what you carry. Gold and cash can be confiscated and computers can be searched. You cross the world and find a public computer, download a single program, and type from memory a sequence of twelve words. You now have access to a stash of bitcoin—unattached to your identity—tucked away for just this scenario, and the knowledge to use it anywhere in the world.

Cryptocurrencies are the ultimate exit strategy for inflation, social collapse, and other disasters. But only if you acquire and use them correctly, which 99% of people fail to do. And only if you understand what Bitcoin actually is. Bitcoin is not a stock. It’s not an online account. And it’s not a physical device. In its rare actual (and purely digital) form it is the most self-sovereign financial tool you can imagine. In this five-module course privacy consultant Gabriel Custodiet explains step-by-step multiple ways to legally buy bitcoin with no attachment to personal information: non-KYC bitcoin. He then explains how to actually own it, how to use it, protect it and convert to other crypto for speculation or added privacy. The course doubles as a “Bitcoin 101” class and includes everything you need to understand this process from A to Z. No prior knowledge required.

As authorities crack down on cryptocurrencies it is critical to have up-to-date, tested methods for private Bitcoin. There is much confusion about this process. The aim of this course is first to correct the damaging false narratives (by many Bitcoin advocates no less) about what Bitcoin is, and then to show you how to use a purely digital asset to its radical potential. No confusing tech vocabulary. No idealism. No hacker-level computer skills. Only the focused steps to teach you how to make the most radical personal finance decision of your life.
