A reading of a touching BitcoinTalk post by the late Hal Finney, from exactly eight years ago.

This episode is sponsored by Nexo.io and Casper, and this week’s special product launch, NEM.

On this edition of “Long Reads Sunday,” NLW reads a BitcoinTalk forum from exactly eight years ago - Hal Finney’s “Bitcoin and Me.” The piece is about the origins of Bitcoin, and more broadly, life’s treasures.

Pictured with his two Rhodesian ridgeback "running buddies," Hal Finney in 2008, shortly before experiencing his first symptoms of ALS.
