A Family Robinson Lifestyle in a Treehouse

Ever since I was young and saw the Family Robinson movie where a family gets stranded on an island and builds up a life in a treehouse over there I dreamed about living a life like that. I haven’t thought about that for a long time but when we yesterday walked to a viewpoint Koh Phangan and discovered that a family with a baby was living over there in a Robinson style tree hut it came back to me. I really enjoyed the walk to it but also the way this family built that house and is living there for already 10 years.  I started to question myself if I really could live like that nowadays and to be honest I think I could but I don’t think the family would agree with me.

Just imagine building a treehouse by yourself with an amazing view and then keep building another part for the kids and a part to kook and to relax and so on and on. Get water from a waterfall etc. Man, that would be amazing to accomplish. Ok to be honest the treehouse we visited had electricity and streaming water but still, everything was open and a 30-minute hike into the jungle away from everybody.

When we arrived at the treehouse nobody was there and I sat down on their view platform and took a look into their house. Everything was open. There was as TV etc but all out in the open. We sat down at the view deck to enjoy the view and suddenly the owner came home. Sawadee Kap and how are you was all he said. He took some stuff out of the room and just laughed happy at us. I complimented him on the house. He just replied with thank you, enjoy it and he left again.

Ok, this was for me the ultimate minimalistic feeling and I understood that this man was living as minimalistic as it gets and he didn’t care about the value of the things in his treehouse. He didn’t worry for a second that we would take something from his stuff and that is, in my opinion, the real feeling of trust in humanity and minimalism. I enjoyed the view some more and dreamed away about a life like this and how it would be.

Yes, we live a minimalistic life as well but we still travel with a laptop, iPhone and a few other things and to be honest you are always afraid to lose them. I don’t care about losing the phone or laptop but I do care about losing what’s on my phone and laptop. This is one of those things why I think that Blockchain will be the solution for living a decentral life where I will be able to safely save my data on a decentral unhackable system where other people can’t use my data for anything else. A decentral Facebook, twitter, instagram, online storage that can’t wrongly use your data and share it with other people. Totally decentralized so it can’t go bankrupt or offline and your data will always be safe and there for you 24/7.

The blockchain and Bitcoin are a solution for many of these situations but then again I wouldn’t need them if I was living in a tree hut on an Island where I can drink fresh coconut juice and eat bananas and other fruits for free. Could you live like this?

Watch our youtube movie about the treehouse and the hike to it.

Doge dog – The Bitcoin Children want one!

The Bitcoin Children want a Doge dog!

My kids have been begging for a pet dog for quite a while now. They even made a youtube video about it! They tell me it will be a great addition to our travelling troupe. Of course, being surrounded daily with crypto jargon their heart is set on getting a Doge dog! Yes, that cute yellow, pointy eared dog that stole the hearts of many when its humorous face went viral on the internet. It became so popular that it even got a crypto currency named after it – the Dogecoin! But is the Doge dog the right dog for us?

dogecoin the bitcoin family

What is a Doge dog?

Seems that the name “Doge” is not actually a dog breed! Doge is a misspelled version of the word dog and was used to refer to an internet meme that went viral in 2013. The Doge meme shows a picture of a female Shiba Inu with an expressive face and some funny text. People went wild over this meme and everyone started to make their own version of the Doge meme. You can make your own Doge meme here.  OK… back to business! So when my kids tell me they want the dog on the Dogecoin, they are really asking for a Shiba Inu.

How did a dog’s face end up on the Dogecoin?

By end 2013, the Bitcoin reached a value of $1,083.14 and people started to take it seriously. Billy Markus and Jackson Palmer thought that cryptocurrency should also be fun and not just about money and serious trading. So they decided to create their own fun altcoin community. They created the Dogecoin, partly as a “joke currency”, based on the happy-looking Shiba Inu pic featured in the Doge meme. The Dogecoin was born! The Dogecoin (DOGE) has gradually been building in value and can be easily traded on a wide variety of exchanges. You can buy your DOGE coins with Giropay, Ideal, Mybank, Sepa, Sofort, Trustpay at


Is the Shiba Inu a good match for the Bitcoin family?

So… back to the dog issue! What does the internet say about this dog breed? What is the Shiba Inu like around family members and in the house, or rather, in a campervan?! Does it match our lifestyle?

shiba-inu didi taihuttu the Bitcoinfamily


The Shiba Inu characteristics

The Shiba Inu is a convenient size, handsome, easy to groom and quiet indoors but that is where the positive points end! Dog breed experts say it is a very challenging dog to raise and train. The Shiba Inu is a high-spirited, “big dog in a small body”, who’s hunting instinct will make it chase anything that moves. It has a mind of its own and will be oblivious to your calls if an interesting sight or scent catches his attention. Its high energy can make it quite destructive when bored or left alone too much. Its excessive suspiciousness can make it turn unsocial and aggressive to new people and dogs if not socialised enough. Not such a good thing for us, since we travel and meet new people all the time! The Shiba Inu will need a confident owner that provides a stable environment and consistent house rules. The worse pitfall is when the Shiba Inu is owned by a big family and each individual has a different set of rules. That’s another deal breaker for our family with three kids! The Shiba Inu`s coat also sheds a lot. Another negative point when living in a campervan!

The result is…

Ok… so that’s it! The Shiba Inu could be a cute dog but it is not for us! My children will not be happy… so maybe I need to redirect them to a breed that is more appropriate for our family. There are these online quizzes that will match a dog breed to your lifestyle. I will get them do a lot of these quizzes and see the outcome. A fun activity that should keep them busy for a while I guess! Haha!

Help us decide!

So what is your opinion about this? I reach out to all our dog savvy followers. Please send us your suggestions and help us decide which dog breed is best for The Bitcoin Family!
Follow us on Facebook, Instagram or YouTube to see what dog breed we will finally choose. And may God help us… two adults, three kids and a dog in one campervan! Yep… good times ahead!!

Yeahhhh Sweden accepts Bitcoin!

We visited Sweden and Bitcoin acceptance is at an average rate. In the big cities, you can find some places that accept Bitcoin or other currency. We still had some Bitcoin Cash left so we went to a bar that accepted Bitcoin Cash. We wanted to know why they didn’t accept Bitcoin so we asked. In the opinion of one of the employees, people are not spending their Bitcoin because they expect is to increase in value and because of the transaction speed and fees. Will in the feature Bitcoin become a store of value and will we use Bitcoin Cash for our daily Payments? I don’t know but we will probably know real soon. Maybe the Bitcoin Cash fork wasn’t because of a disagreement and maybe all the forks are well planned. Then Bitcoin will be the store of value, Bitcoin Cash will be used for daily payments and Bitcoin private will be used for the private transactions.

I hope it was all planned and if not in the future BTC, BCC and BTCP will understand that if they work together in the future and accept each other’s qualities and role in the new monetary system they will be the strongest. Let me know your thoughts!

Our adventure is now really getting started as we will soon start the European Bitcoin tour. Why a Bitcoin tour and not just enjoying some cocktails on the beach the rest of our life? The answer is quite simple. We want to contribute to the monetary revolution and support crypto and blockchain to the fullest.

Sweden, Norway, Denmark, Netherlands, Germany, Switzerland, Austria, Croatia, Italy, Malta, Spain, Portugal, France, UK. We have some time so we could add more places during the tour. You can see a roughly monthly schedule on but we will go with the flow. We will attend some conferences where I will be a keynote speaker. We will visit a huge ming farm, the village with the most BTC transactions of Europe, Hotels, and restaurants that accept crypto, Blockchain companies and for example Liberland. We will try to interview some interesting crypto people and much more. Check our website,, for our social media links and more information.

Coincidence or serendipity ?

Was it serendipity?

A short story about how life can bring you together without even knowing it did. We have been on Koh Phangan for 3 months now and we met many very interesting people. A few days ago we again had a strange story of serendipity.

Our youngest daughter Jessa has been playing with Antalia, a French girl, for 2 months now. We met the parents but we just daily greeted each other. The family has been traveling for 5 years now and was in Nepal some time ago. In Nepal a friend of them told them about crypto and that there was a family that sold everything they had to buy Bitcoin. Since then they talked a lot about Bitcoin and whether to buy it or not. At that moment we have been staying for 2 months in the same resort without them knowing that we were this family they heard about in Nepal.

Society Paris

A few days ago a French friend visited them in the resort and brought them some French magazines to read. One of the magazines was Society and we were in it. They recognized Jessa from the picture and then realized they were greeting us for 2 months without knowing we were the family they previously heard of. They immediately came to us and told the story how they heard about us. We laughed about it and agreed that meeting each other was meant to be. Of course, they quickly started asking questions about whether to buy Bitcoin or not. I started to tell our story, our view on crypto and what we did.  They decided to buy Bitcoins because meeting us couldn’t be a coincidence.

It’s so strange how life seems to connect people to each other at the right moment. Why did I  share this with you? Because 1). To show you how huge Bitcoin is becoming and that even in Nepal in the mountains people talk about it. 2) How things, that seem to randomly happen, often happen for a reason, serendipity. 

Break the circle

If you take time to look around and pay attention to people, you are able to see amazing things you would not have seen if you just run the hamster wheel. If you walk the same circle every day and if you are continuously living in your head it’s not easy to spot the magic of life.

Start discovering the world and just break the circle you live in, create some space and open up to new amazing things in life. And no you don’t have to start traveling the world for this. You could, for example, next Monday after work, not directly go home but stop somewhere randomly on the way back and to take a walk in a village where you would normally not stop. Say hello to new people and have a short chat with them or offer to help somebody that needs it at that moment. Just see how it feels and if you like that feeling.  You wouldn’t have felt like that if you just drove past that village to get home as fast as possible to continue the daily routine. These small things will make you realize that there is more to life than just running the hamster wheel.

It’s important that our children experience other cultures

Respect someone for who he/she is.

This is not always easy since there are so many different people on this planet and not everyone thinks like you do. Although we can be so different, first try to understand why before you judge them. But how can you understand someone when you have no idea what his or her motivations are for acting in a certain way? 

A large part of one’s motives comes from his / her culture. There are many different cultures and by experiencing these cultures yourself it will be more easy to understand. By letting your children experience other cultures now, we believe that this will contribute positively to the rest of their lives. They will know why someone does or doesn’t do something in a certain way. Through this knowledge, understanding arises and this creates respect. You do not always have to agree with each other, but we can give each other the respect that everyone deserves.

Different countries different religions

When we travel through Indonesia our kids will discover the Islam religion, when we travel through Thailand they will meet Buddhism religion, In India and Bali, they will learn many things about Hinduism. In Australia, they learned which values the aboriginals religion has and in new Zeeland could see the Maori religion. Yes, there are many more religions but what the kids discover by taking them there is that they are all people and all the same. They just believe in different things and in our opinion that’s positive and we teach our kids what the positive things are of every religion instead of the negatives things because it’s only negative in your eye’s but not in theirs. Mutual respect is very important in life.

Let’s give an example. If you are eating in a restaurant in China you might hear people burping and making a lot of other sounds while they eat. In the western part of the world, we teach our kids that burping or slurping is not done and really rude. So your kids might end up thinking that for example, Chinese people are rude people but as strange as it may sound, burping is not considered rude in parts of India and China. Burping after a meal shows a sign of appreciation, satiety and being well fed. In Japan, slurping is considered polite. It’s also an indication that the food is good. You’ll look weirder for not slurping your noodles. Can you imagine how much fun it is to go and eat with your children and allow them to slurp and burp, hahaha. In some religions, it’s not ok for different genders to hug and in others, man kiss each other on their cheek when they meet. Kids need to understand why they do it like this and respect those people for it instead of making fun of it. The more people they see doing it all over the world the easier it becomes for them to understand it’s totally normal. These are just a few examples and we could name many more of them but maybe you could mention some in the reactions below this article.

Why we visit temples?

This is one of the reasons why we visit temples and many other religious spots with our children. This time we were in Koh Phangan in a very nice small temple, Wat Paa Sang Tham which we would recommend visiting with kids. You will get some free bananas and water and of course, in return, they love you to buy a lucky bracelet or do a donation etc. The kids were dressed in sarongs to hide naked shoulders and they got to light up incense sticks and offer them. They learn that they always need to use three sticks when offering. In Thailand, it’s often said that the three incense sticks pay homage to the Triple Gems: Buddha, Sangha, Dhamma. They learned that in Buddhism, incense acts as an offering to Buddhas, or enlightened ones, as well as a symbol for various aspects of Buddhist belief and an aid to positive thoughts and actions. So basically they learned that these sticks are not just used to give your house a nice smell, hahaha.

So we had some fun while they learned some things and that is in our opinion the best way to educate kids while traveling and again teach them that yes we all have different believes and live by them but at the end, we are all just humans which need to respect each other.


A typical bitcoin beach day

Bitcoin Beachday

I was on the beach yesterday in Koh Samui and I a somewhat older German guy started talking to me. I think he was late 60’s and black painted hair with a too big golden necklace in my opinion hahaha. You can’t judge the package from the outside as I learned and I love chatting to all kinds of people so I did. He was talking about so many things that I got dizzy. What he was doing here, bla bla bla and eventually the question came how do you earn money?  And bam that was the moment I started talking but my answer was short, “ Bitcoin” . The man started laughing and was like, man thats fake, thats something what will disappear very soon. You and your family will go bankrupt and will end up with nothing. Pointing at his real beautiful and big gold necklace he said, this is worth money and will never go away. Bitcoin isn’t backup up by anything and so it can’t be worth something. Its only for computernerds and will never be accepted as a standard payment method.

I needed to control myself and so I just responded with lets see what the future will bring us. Off course I could have responded in a other way because I really don’t agree with him. The thing is that I have had these discussions many times now and I learned that when people react this aggressively negative they are just afraid off the changes they need to face. I think this is the problem with many people, companies, governments etc. They are so afraid of revolutionary innovations that wil change the future that their first reaction is aggressively negative.

The same way they reacted when internet came in the 90’s. It was just for criminals and porno and they where sure that nobody would send all there post by e-mail in the near future. Maybe office Clercqs and nerds would use email but not the average person. Watching television on a mobile was never going to be possible and was just for star wars movies. Looking at the earth or even streets with google maps was a ridiculous idea and could only be seen if you were an astronaut. I could mention 1000 things like this and so could you. It seems tat every time a revolution is born the first few years 80% of people fight against it and 20% of the people understand that it will change the world and support it.

Why fear?

Why is this ? Why do people always fight against the unknown? Why do people not embrace the unknown and live by the day and support innovative exiting new things?

FEAR is the answer. People lost contact with their inner-self and are just to afraid to follow their guts of which they know it is right in most of the cases. This is something that schools should teach our children. They should teach our children how to feel and how to live life and embrace exiting new things instead of walking around like small Robots repeating what third parties told them. Kids should be taught to use their creativity and passion instead of suppressing it and replacing it with lust for materialism. When Kids finish schools they think they are only successful when they have the best job, a big house, a few cars and 1.000.000 instagram followers that want the same life. Is this really how we want our kids to be ?

To be clear I am not blaming the schools for this fear, that is rooted deeply inside all of us, but schools could make a difference and start changing their approach. Our children have the future is a saying and thats why we chose to show our children a different life and we just hope they will follow and pass this on to their children. And yes of course I understand that we are part of those 20% in the world that embrace new things but we think blockchain, crypto and many other applications on this amazing technology will soon contribute to a shift in these percentages. More and more people will realize that life can be lived different.

Blockchain and Crypto are real game changers. I understand the old German guy and I feel his fear but he and many other people need to understand that blockchain and crypto are here to stay and will change this world like the industrialization and the internet did. Just take some time every day to read about how crypto and blockchain are changing things and just google a bit and see how many websites, companies, foundations, shops etc are being build because of crypto and blockchain. read about how big companies like Expedia, Microsoft, Virgin, Wikipedia, Tesla , Subway and Shopify already accept crypto as a payment method. Why would they do this ? Because they think it is something that will soon disappear?  And please understand that all the negative news is needed to slow down this (r)evolution so everybody has time to adapt to this new technology.

Believe me this change will even be bigger than the internet and will influence our lives in a way than we can’t imagine at this point.

But what are we so afraid of and what can we loose ?

Yes off course you can loose some money but there also is a chance you will win some because of crypto. More importent is that you will win freedom, independency and control of your own money by supporting this crypto revolution

Just question yourself if this 2nd car, new laptop, life savings plan or bigger house is so important ? Or is it more important that you support our freedom, independency and control on money? Maybe you should diversify a bit and invest a % of your capital in crypto or buy a cheaper 2nd car so you won’t miss this boat, or train, no let’s call it a spaceship that soon will launch and change our world.

Start opening doors and look behind them to see what is there instead of waiting in front of this closed door because you are afraid that if you walk through, that ……… ………. Yes tell me how should I end this sentence? What are you afraid of, if you walk through this door?

Are you afraid that if you close the door, everything you left behind, will be gone if you return ?
Are you afraid that the door doesn’t open again if you want to go back ?

Nothing will change, you will only discover that after every choice you can make new choices again and again and again.

I really don’t understand this FEAR but it must feel like for example bungee jumping. You are climbing up that stairs and then at the top and even if you know nothing can go wrong but you still you get a bit afraid of jumping (yes there is a small risk that the rope will break). You feel the tension building up and a crazy feeling in you stomach and your mind starts to play games with you and you start talking to yourself. You start doubting to jump or just walk back. But then you jump and feel this amazing feeling of joy without thinking of anything else. Just joy and you are proud you did it. So yes new things can be scary but most of times if you take the step the result is amazing. Now the same situation, you again walk up this stairs and at the end you don’t jump because of fear. Your friends do jump and afterwards tell you how amazing it was. How do you feel then ?

With crypto there is no chance the rope brakes and that you die but just a chance that you loose some money. As you probably know money comes and money go’s. Yes we as a family took a huge jump and I am not telling you to do the same, but we just think that if it go’s wrong we can always start over again and start a new adventure. We were not afraid of opening this door and looking behind it and we were sure we didn’t want the things that we left behind. We wanted a new life. Maybe that’s what made it more easy for us.

Lucky later that day on the beach I met some dutch guys and girls, around 29 years old from Rotterdam and The Hague (den haag). Ik chatted with them as well about crypto and they understood the need and meaning of crypto and have way less fear and even now one or two things about it. Man that I could chat some dutch about crypto made my day hahahaha. Oh yeah and not to forget the hand reading fortuneteller on the beach who offered to read my hand. I said, sorry I don’t have money, only bitcoin and even he new about bitcoin and what it was and was positive about it. So at the end of the day I had a satisfied feeling of more and more people knowing what Bitcoin is and even understanding the importance of it.

Yep, just a typical day on the beach which used to be so relaxt but now not a day go’s by that somebody speaks to me about Bitcoin and to be honest I am glad they do.

To the old German guy I just wanna say;

Wir werden sehen wie der Zukunft aussieht aber Bitte hab keinen angst fur neue Sache und verkauf die Golden Kette und kauf Bitcoin davon. Innerhalb ein par Jähr können sie ein par golden Kette kaufen hahaha. ( we will see how the Future will look but don’t fear new things and please sell that golden necklace and buy bitcoin. In a few years you can probably buy many necklaces from the profit.

So here we are at week three after our first news coming out on business insider. Man, our life has been a thrill ride since then. It’s really amazing to see how life changes after some media attention. It’s a really unusual situation for us and the kids because we didn’t start our adventure to become world news. We are just a normal family that is really relaxed and grounded. But at the moment we daily receive invitations to shoot documentaries, radio and television interviews, late night shows, participate in television shows like parents changing family’s, start to vlog etc. The next step will probably be that someone offers us to write a book hahaha.

But why did we really start this adventure?

The main reason for the steps that we are taking is that we experienced life can go fast, referring to Didi’ s deceased mom (48 years) and dad (61 years). We were running the hamster wheel so hard it almost started to roll with 220 km/h. We felt we needed a real change of lifestyle for ourselves and the kids. During the traveling we discovered we didn’t need so much stuff and that the situation we had been creating at home the last decade was making us noxious. We were really getting sick of having all the stuff and that’s why we decided to sell almost everything. How does it feel to get sick of having stuff? It just makes you want to scream and run as far away possible from your house and all the stuff in it.

Being with the kids

We wanted to stop running and miss out on the kids growing up and spend more time with them now they are still young. We would love to teach them that life isn’t all about having but also about giving and helping each other. There are people in need of help all over the world. We want them to know they are free individuals that are allowed to follow their passions and chase their dreams instead of becoming small robots. That they are in control of their own lives. With the steps we took we hope to set a good example for our kids.

Next step, selling everything

We decided to start selling all of our luxury belongings like our house, cars, electric bikes, quads, toys, computers, clothes, shoes etc. just everything we didn’t want/need anymore. We moved to a campsite to live in a 50m2 chalet with two bedrooms a kitchen, bathroom and living/study/bedroom.

What now, what do we have to do with all the money from these sales?

Put in a bank? Keep it at home? Put it in crypto?
This decision was made really quick because we partly lost our trust in the banks and keeping it at home was not safe (the amount is too big). We don’t trust the banks is a big word but let’s look at our investment mortgage. At the point of selling our house this was less then we invested into it in the last 10 years. Secondly, banks start to ask interest for having savings. So our conclusion was that the banks weren’t doing a good job. If you combine this with the situations we saw in Greece and Cyprus, the devaluating of money in many other places in the world and maybe an upcoming crisis we thought cryptocurrency was the safest option.

The positive part of crypto is that if it booms we will make a fortune, but again that’s not the main reason for the life-changing things we are doing at the moment. It’s just that to live a life we need something of value to pay for our basic needs and we chose to trust blockchain and decentralized digital money like bitcoin.

Another reason for this choice is that we are aware of what is happening in the world. Our belief is that we are part of a revolution of the monetary system and that the current money as we know it will evolve to cryptocurrency. We don’t think we are alone in this movement and that more and more people are losing trust in the current monetary system and the ones that rule it. Let’s be honest they haven’t done a great job for many in the last decades.

To answer the question we received a lot in the last weeks

Question: Don’t you think it’s a bit controversial that you want to live a minimalist life and become a millionaire as well?

Answer: First of all to be very clear. We never said to anybody we wanted to be a millionaire family. We just said that crypto could make it possible that our money could go times 5.  Yes, we understand we can become crypto millionaires, but mind you, we also understand that we can go bankrupt because of crypto. It’s just not the main reason for our decisions we are taking at the moment.


So we hope that this clears up the question of “the minimalist family that wants to become a millionaire”, hahaha. What the future will be we honestly don’t know and don’t care. We live in the moment and day by day. We enjoy every day to the fullest because you never know when it will be the last day of this life.
