So I have 2 cousins. One of them doesn't save and is a huge spender while the other is a saver and spends only once a year. So would bitcoin be a good way to teach them about saving? Since, mining bitcoin is the only way to make alot of bitcoin, I would use a alt wallet to show them what happens if you spend and don't save. What do you think?

yeah maybe we can give understanding to the children about the benefits and advantages of saving with bitcoin as an example

I don't think bitcoin would be the best way to teach kids about saving, because there's not a lot of opportunity for a kid to spend the bitcoin they've acquired...when you can't spend it you must save it!

It would be better teaching on how to save to use fiat currency because part of the teaching is learning to not succumb to the temptation to spend the saved money at every toy store, movie, iOS app store, etc.

You could use bitcoin to teach them about saving for retirement, long term savings and how investments can appreciate in value over time. Just my two satoshi!

yes it could use to important things and teach them how to save and value

But it's still complicated for them to learn how to use internet + money.
They should learn from how to use fiat wisely and then step by step , they will figure it out how to use bitcoin in proper way

I think it's a good idea to teach your 2 cousins about saving using bitcoin so they could buy the things that they wanted. They could also earn more money with it and they could help each other when they used bitcoin for their daily lives.
Kids are the future generation of each and every nation and bitcoin is the future of the world so it an appreciable and commendable idea to kids about bitcoin because these kids will become able to compete the upcoming challenges of the new world and definitely they will play a key role in stabilizing the financial status of their nation.
Kids are the future but at the same time you cannot rush their development if we were talking about teenagers then I think it could be a good idea to teach them about bitcoin since they are going to be introduced to bitcoin one way or another when bitcoin reaches mass adoption in the next decade, but kids do not have any need to know about bitcoin yet.

It will not help children save money because children do not care about money i think it will help teenagers save money because it can make them earn a lot and they can make a lot out of it.

Bitcoin can help children to learn how to save. Kids don't have much opportunity to spend there bitcoin. When they see there's nothing to spend they'll surly save there bitcoins .But first we have to introduce the power of bitcoin to our children which is hard part for us. Bitcoin is for teenagers and for adults. How a kid can learn about it .
We need to develop interest for the kids so that they can really indulge in bitcoins. A good option will be to start making games which give bitcoins in case of winning rewards.

Bitcoin could be demonstrated valuable for the children to spare their cash for their great future in light of the fact that Bitcoin could be the best sparing wallet for the youngsters' to spare their cash for the brilliant future and when they need to their cash back till then they would have earned much benefit on the grounds that the costs of Bitcoin is expanding quickly.

For me it is good to teach them how bitcoin works,just by holding it for a matter of time they will profit..but as a kid it really needs proper explanation but somehow almost every kid seems so extravagant most especially when they saw toys,and im pretty sure they'll get tempted on what they saw.All you need is to guide them through so that they will be able to understand what you are up to..to teach them how to save.

Saving should be learned at home and not some of like value like bitcoins or cash. So teaching it to kids... well we should teach them to be responsible in spending...

Why shouldn't saving be done with Bitcoins or cash. And how is Bitcoin not cash? I mean I guess what I am saying is are you trying to say fiat is cash and Bitcoin isn't? Because people are now saying BTC is a store of value, but in my opinion even still it is moreso like cash than fiat is. And also why can't Bitcoins be stored at home? Most BTC is spent on computers/ laptops etc from people's own homes so... yeah I don't think your logic makes much sense. Wink

I think not only in saving they can learn to on how to do trading,  yes I believe that through bitcoin they can learn how to earn and save money but it's up to them if they want to know or learn to save..  Bit for me they should learn to save money

Yes, it can, but at the same time, it can not. If a person has self-control, he can do what he wants. In saving, self-control is important. Controlling yourself not to spend your money is a thing. Even if you have already put your money in bitcoin wallet, there is still a tendency that you're going to withdraw it and spend it. The worse part of teaching save through bitcoin is that they might learn how to use their money in online gambling, especially that bitcoin is widely accepted in online gambling sites.

For kids to understand the working of bitcoin or any other cryptocurrency is difficult, so first we need to teach the basics of economics like what is investment, saving, profit and all to the kids once they understand that based on that we can teach savings by using bitcoin.

I agree! We should teach kids first the basic of investing and saving using paper money before investing in bitcoin because bitcoin different kind of invest and form of money. It may confuse them so its better if we teach them one step at a time.

That is true, like what I want to teach my kids is something like letting them have allowances and if they have excess they can give it to me and I would tell them that it can earn interest if they place the money with me. So they know that investing is a good thing and that learning it early on will prove to be something that can benefit them in the long run. Parenting is indeed hard, but as parents it's something as our duty.

Bitcoin is a good way to teach them how to save but it is also a way to teach them how to spend because they would know how to earn.
Teach them how to save by training them to save some money for the toys they want instead of buying all for them.

I dont think it could help the kids to save, but it could teach the kids to earn, but the kids wont too interested, since he cant spend the bitcoin, bitcoin is not suitable for kids, but it is good to introduce to them, so they know updated technology and different shape of money
Saving depends upon the person if he/she is truly a spender it will be hard to change that. But if she experience something about earning, like it is so hard to earn now a days I think if bitcoin will be the tool for earning it would be easy for them thus will only lead them to spending more.

So I have 2 cousins. One of them doesn't save and is a huge spender while the other is a saver and spends only once a year. So would bitcoin be a good way to teach them about saving? Since, mining bitcoin is the only way to make alot of bitcoin, I would use a alt wallet to show them what happens if you spend and don't save. What do you think?

It somehow teaches kids about savings. First, bitcoin is worth it when it is held for quite some time. The thinking here is while waiting for it's value to become higher, why not keep on increasing the amount of you want to trade, thereby increasing the chance of getting a higher trade. So, when we teach kids that, they will like saving.

I think it's a good idea because it's a good lesson, they can know what the benefits of saving and what's the disadvantage of not saving money
