    This is the big one!  



    Today, we put some Bitcoin (1,432,047 Satoshis to be precise) in the hands of kids. It’s theirs, they own it, and we don’t have any say in how they save it or spend it.  



    I’ll not spoil the results here, but I do have some thankyous to give.

    EP98: Weekend at Bernie's

    EP98: Weekend at Bernie's

    We’ve always wanted to do an “Orange Pill Live” episode, to test our abilities in answering the questions of a precoiner and to see if (during the course of a podcast) we could convince someone to buy themselves their first Bitcoin. 

    That was the intention of this episode, but in the time it’s taken us to schedule the pod with Bernie, he’d already got himself off zero! 

    However, Bernie is Brendo’s mate, so we thought we’d go ahead with the call and press record anyway, and only publish it if we thought it might help someone out there. 

    It turns out, Bernie has gone from zero to well down the road of hero in 2 short months, but he gave us a great perspective on the issues and questions a new Bitcoiner has right now. 

     

    We discuss: 


    Bulked-up Brendo 


    “Crypto” misconceptions 


    What made Bernie take the first step into Bitcoin 


    The challenge of buying a home and deposit requirements 


    University (HECS) debt indexation 


    Lack of government support, lies about inflation, stimulus cheques, UBI and something having changed 


    Trying to outrun inflation 


    Savings accounts, stocks, risk taking and having a go 


    What Bernie did practically when he decided to buy some Bitcoin 


    Hot and Cold wallets 


    Understanding a non-physical asset 


    Personal responsibility, 2FA and key storage 


    Steel Seedplates 


    Speaking in Bitcoin or Sats 


    The gradually then suddenly event horizon 


    Volatility, risk taking and bag pumping 


    Rewards programmes 


    Why does Bitcoin crash and is it a buying opportunity 


    Murrurundi golf

    If you’ve not heard Peter Dunworth’s valuation model for Bitcoin (frankly, what are you doing with your life), go back and listen to episodes 70 and 77, but although he’s been spruiking it all over town and asking someone to challenge it, no one has...until now. 

    We, completely unfairly invited Pete back on under false pretences and then hit him with “his nemesis waiting in the green room”.  We wanted to see if we could shake his conviction or rattle his composure.  Listen to find out if we could. 

    Settle in with a coffee. This is long one.  We discuss: 

     


    Exponential rise of Bitcoin and fall of Fiat 


    Positioning and wealth preservation 




    The distinction between risk and volatility 


    Resistance to change 


    The opportunity of buying in a SMSF 


    The importance of mobile 


    Kids with Bitcoin wallets 




    Never needing a bank account 


    Blackrock, ETF’s and what does Larry Fink 


    Liquidity drain 


    Client’s will demand Bitcoin exposure from their financial adviser 


    Banking restrictions 




    Why does the bull run ever stop and the point of no return 


    Taking profit, a risk on behaviour 


    What happens when AI and the machines start draining liquidity 


    Why ransomware only ever wants Bitcoin 


    Uber 




    ELI5 and ELI2 


    The Bitcoin Adviser 


    Starved of original thought 


    Unit bias 


    Moving towards self-actualisation 




    Lambos and Yachts 


    Holy Moly and It’s a Knockout 


    An App Store for Keys
