Win a Coldcard Wallet on Proof of Keys Day

There’s a saying in Bitcoin: “Not your keys, not your coins”.

It stems from an ethos of self-reliance, minimizing trust, and holding counterparties accountable for their promises. From these values has come an important movement called “Proof of Keys”, championed by Trace Mayer. It is a yearly event encouraging individuals to practice secure self storage of their assets and exercise their monetary sovereignty on Bitcoin’s birthday - January 3rd.

Being a Bitcoiner is an arduous journey of hard lessons and personal discovery; one that we firmly believe breeds some of the most resilient individuals with strong convictions and skin in the game. Here at BTSE, we strongly support the Proof of Keys movement and want to do our part in conveying its message of self-reliance and self-sovereignty.
