In Episode 21, we're discussing questions about bitcoin with Andy Flattery, CFP® from Simple Wealth Planning.

Andy is a Kansas City-based bitcoin enthusiast and local expert on the topic that is very involved in the bitcoin community.

The rise over the last decade of bitcoin has created a lot of interest, but even more questions.

  • What is bitcoin?
  • How does it work?
  • Is it money or an investment?
  • How do you value it?
  • How do you secure it?
  • What happens if you lose it?

These are all questions that have probably popped into your head at one time or another when thinking about bitcoin.

Being intrigued but still skeptical about bitcoin, Kyle sits down with Andy to ask his honest questions about bitcoin.

Before they dive into bitcoin, the Hill boys define money for you. Not bad for a 4 and 6-year-old!

To skip the fluff go to the 25:20 mark.
