# Buy Satoshi, not Bitcoin, to eliminate unit bias in investing. ## Yes Satoshi not Bitcoin ### Some of you are no doubt thinking Satoshi? not Bitcoin? Aren't they the same thing? #### Yes and No... ![1E2A2B63-8D03-4AD1-85AF-169A11DE2CB8_1_201_a.jpeg](https://cdn.steemitimages.com/DQmRXKsekLHzQGkX8ozzEgShZMxTWwgYJKhf2MWF9w4c1Kk/1E2A2B63-8D03-4AD1-85AF-169A11DE2CB8_1_201_a.jpeg) [source](www.pixabay.com) #### Unit Bias defined >Unit Bias: The tendency for people to want to complete a unit of a given item or task. People believe there is an optimal unit size and want to get through to the end because they get satisfaction from completing it. [source](https://lirio.com/blog/unit-bias-lirio-bias-brief/) I think in the case of investing, it becomes the strong desire to own at least one of something. #### Unit Bias as it applies to Bitcoin But I think when they see the price of one Bitcoin was 60k and is now 49k as I write this, they think **Bitcoin is to expensive**, but Doge is cheap! I can get a thousand of them, or ten thousand, or more... It's better to have 1000 or 10,000 of something, then it is to have 1 of something, right? *Actually no, quantity doesn't actually dictate value, value does.* For example, one diamond is worth more than 1000 lumps of coal. And one million flies are worth less than one golden retriever. While it is true that in the *market* things have value because people give them value, and 40 cent Doge is proof. But what would you rather have? One thousand lumps of coal or one diamond? **A lump of coal could become a diamond, but a diamond already is a diamond.** It doesn't have to do anything. It is the same with Doge and Bitcoin. *Doge could become the next Bitcoin, but Bitcoin is already Bitcoin.* So why not just buy Bitcoin. Even if you love Doge Coin memes, I think you get the point that Bitcoin has a better chance of holding its value. #### But we are still left with the psychological hurdle of one Bitcoin costs 49k. If you buy $500 dollars worth of Bitcoin, you get 0.015 Bitcoin. A tiny amount, and its deflating to the average person. But on there's a mother way to think of your Bitcoin! In Satoshi! #### There are 100,000,000 Satoshi in one Bitcoin Yes, so instead of 0.015 Bitcoin for $500, you bought about 1.5 million Satoshi! Wow! Now that's a big investment! Your already a Satoshinaire! I think that's a good start on becoming a Millionaire! #### So change your point of view, buy and save Satoshi! Bitcoin Maximalists are fond of calling their purchase of Bitcoin **Stacking Sats** and by Sats they mean Satoshi. I think this is a good mental framework for investing in Bitcoin. And when you buy Bitcoin you can see how its denominated with Satoshi converters like this [one](https://www.finder.com/satoshi-to-bitcoin-conversion-calculator) #### So buy Bitcoin and join our community ![1E2A2B63-8D03-4AD1-85AF-169A11DE2CB8_1_201_a.jpeg](https://cdn.steemitimages.com/DQmRXKsekLHzQGkX8ozzEgShZMxTWwgYJKhf2MWF9w4c1Kk/1E2A2B63-8D03-4AD1-85AF-169A11DE2CB8_1_201_a.jpeg) So I suggest you buy Bitcoin, and **Stack Sats** or **Save Satoshi.** Buy Bitcoin or Ethereum, and start learning about cryptocurrency. I also hope you buy a small quantity of Hive and Leo, and start blogging, video blogging or in some other way sharing your content on Hive or Leofinance.
