₿HS010: 10X Your Bitcoin Homeschooling


Talk to your kids about the four freedoms: time, money, relationships, and purpose.  Talk to them about their unique abilities.  You can start by teaching kids that there's an alternative to the fiat education and it fits perfectly with Bitcoin.  Tali and Scott explore these and other applications from the “10X Is Easier Than 2X” framework for Bitcoin Homeschoolers.

"HODL UP is a fun game. Almost as easy as playing Uno. Cool thing is that... it is all based on crypto-currency. Playing enabled my children and me to learn as we mined coins! Its accessible gameplay makes it both a family-friendly game and an educational experience. Highly recommend!"
