Tuur Demeester must be one of the most socially active members of the Bitcoin community. 

Having shunned traditional education during university, he set about researching and teaching others about the potential for Bitcoin and alternatives to central banking at an early stage. 

Author and founder of financial newsletter MacroTrends, Tuur advocated Bitcoin to readers as early as 2012, and his expertise led him to become something of a young authority on the developing industry. 

Now, it's time to take stock and reflect, and Cointelegraph caught up with him during Bitcoin2014 Amsterdam to get the latest on his plans as well as some further wisdom on Bitcoin's future.
