    Read_519 - The Key to an Abundant, Clean Energy Future [Square & ARKinvest]

    "Bitcoin miners are unique energy buyers in that they offer highly flexible and easily interruptible load, provide payout in a globally liquid cryptocurrency, and are completely location agnostic, requiring only an internet connection. These combined qualities constitute an extraordinary asset, an energy buyer of last resort that can be turned on or off at a moment’s notice anywhere in the world." - Square & ARKinvest

    The "Bitcoin destroys the environment" argument is over for anyone who hasn't lost the ability to think clearly. A new paper from Square and their clean energy initiative and how Bitcoin mining will change everything.

    For the full paper and links to further breakdown and discussion on the topic, check out the source below:

    Read_518 - Two Taproot Activation Clients! [Aaron Van Wirdum]

    Read_518 - Two Taproot Activation Clients! [Aaron Van Wirdum]

    "discussion about Taproot activation turned out to be a long and sometimes heated debate. Now, it has resulted in two different Taproot activation paths, embedded in two main software clients that could in some scenarios even become incompatible with one another." - Aaron Van Wirdum

    With a short introduction to taproot and all the mess around the True/False activation dilemma, we cover another great piece from Aaron Van Wirdum at BitcoinMagazine breaking down why we have 2 different clients, what the conflict is exactly and what it might mean for Bitcoin over the next year.

    Check out the full article below, with lots of links to other works and source for further digging:

    For the previous episode discussing the True/False dilemma in detail, here is Aaron's previous article covering the debate:

    Read_517 - Len Sassaman & Satoshi, A Cypherpunk History [Evan h]

    "Embedded on every single node of the Bitcoin network is an obituary. Hacked into the transaction data, it’s a memorial to Len Sassaman, a man essentially immortalized in the blockchain itself. A fitting tribute in more ways than one.' - Evan h

    In the never ending search for Satoshi, there is the opportunity to find the unsung heroes of the cypherpunks. those who are lesser known, but made a monumental impact on the cypherpunk movement and helped in laying the critical pieces that made Bitcoin possible. Who was Len Sassaman? Is there evidence that he could have been the man behind the Satoshi pseudonym? And why did we lose him so early?

    All this in more in this amazing piece from Evan h:

    Read_516 - Conclusion of the Long-Term Debt Cycle [Dylan Leclair]

    Read_516 - Conclusion of the Long-Term Debt Cycle [Dylan Leclair]

    "Human civilization is at an inflection point. Inflationary monetary policy against the backdrop of technological deflation means either that ever more power will become concentrated in the hands of the state, or that one by one, individuals will voluntarily opt into and adopt a superior monetary system, the rules of which cannot be arbitrarily changed." - Dylan Leclair

    We are at the precipice of the greatest change in our monetary system in nearly the past century. The long term debt cycle is in its endgame. What has led us here, and what future does Bitcoin make possible with its emergence coinciding with the conclusion of the legacy monetary regime. Taking a deeo dive on this topic with this new article at Bitcoin Magazine, written by Dylan Leclair.

    For other great episodes to explore and dig deeper into the relevant ideas, here are a few mentioned during the show:

    Read_515 - Utopian Dystopias [Alek Svetski]

    "Bitcoin is the alpha-omega of private property and voluntary exchange. It lowers the cost of defence whilst increasing the cost of attack. As such it is the central tool in helping us get beyond the great filter." - Aleks Svetski

    In tying together and expanding on the ideas touched on in yesterday's episode, on responsibility and freedom, we dive deep with Alek's piece from the Bitcoin Times Ed 3 on the nature of decision making, the fundamental truths of the world, & how we can deduce a harmonious path for the future. Bitcoin codifies the critical principles necessary for proper evolution of society. Let's find out why.

    Don't forget to check out the original and drop some massive applause, plus the other many great works from The Bitcoin Times:

    Another episode we've done discussing some related concepts and the nature of rights and how Bitcoin defends them is Guy's Take #32:
