One of Bitcoin’s pioneers offers a DIY on-ramp for people unsure how to enter the crypto world.

Brock Pierce has been part of Bitcoin from its infancy, and few people have had a better seat to watch it grow from the inside. Suddenly there's not a person around who doesn't know what Bitcoin is.

“It's as simple as buying $20, $100. It doesn't need to be this thing that you spend, days, weeks, months, or years thinking about, it's not this incredibly intimidating hurdle.
