Getting Started

Welcome to your Bankless journey.

Going bankless is a journey towards freedom, self-sovereignty and financial independence.

That means less reliance on central banks and commercial banks. We don't hate banks—we just don’t need them anymore. At least, we need them a lot less in our new crypto money systems.

But we’re practical. It’s too early to do this all at once. Too risky. Too difficult.

This open money system is just getting started.

That’s why it’s a journey.


Why go bankless?

Start with this 8 minute video to get the basics.


Westward for Gold!

Like all worthwhile journeys, this one isn’t easy! It takes effort. It requires risk!

We’re not just starry-eyed dreamers—we’re heading west because there’s gold! If we’re right—massive upside! New economies. New asset classes. The opportunity to become financially independent.

This is like learning HTML and buying .com domains in 1995.

Why go Bankless?

  1. To maximize your crypto wealth (independence & wealth)
  2. To become a crypto native (skills & knowledge)

It’s also about building a better system for future generations by rejecting authoritarianism, creating a hedge against the tyranny of money printing, and building greater access for the developing world.

Bankless means freedom and upside for each of us as individuals and an opportunity make the world a better place for future generations. If Bankless wins, the world wins.
