    "Much like the World Economic Forum’s Young Global Leaders program has facilitated the placement of its trained, ideological allies in positions of top political power around the world, groups like Endeavor and their equivalents help ensure that similarly controlled business leaders dominate the private sector and become the public face of emerging market monopolies that are, ultimately, part of a broader network." ~ Mark Goodwin & Whitney Webb
    What if a network of powerful governments and billionaires were quietly digging their tentacles into emerging markets around the world to hold sway over a publci-private partnership that shaped policies and governance around the world? Today we dive into a complex web of connections linking tech giants, "philanthropists," intelligence agencies and more to a broader network of institutions vying for control over the markets and political systems of developing countries the world over, and who have sunk their teeth into the Bitcoin world as well. A wild investigation by Mark Goodwin and Whitney Webb that is not to be missed.

    Chat_104 - Immutable Democracy with Carlino

    "You eliminate 99% of the attack surface to a single moment in time, which is the beginning. And when you do that, would-be attackers are forced to take risks and make mistakes. You know, when someone is planning on doing election fraud, this doesn't mean that it's impossible for them to do it. But it narrows the window so much that they are likely going to mess up. And when they mess up, you catch them." ~ CarlinoWhen people usually talk about alternative bitcoin "utility" they often mean NFTs, trash tokens, and "jpegs on the blockchain." But what if there really is another utility, one that doesn't suffer the damaging externalities and is closer to the core of what the timechain really is? Could Bitcoin protect the integrity of national elections? Diving into groundbreaking case study from Guatemala, we explore this idea with Carlino. Can this revolutionary approach be applied globally to ensure transparent and tamper-proof democratic processes?

    Read_833 - Between Bitcoin Layers - Boltz Builds Trustless Transfers

    "Submarine Swaps employ hash time-locked contracts (HTLCs), which in layperson’s terms, enable two transactions (both sides of the swap) to happen simultaneously by linking them together cryptographically inside of a smart contract. Using this technology, there is no way for one exchange to occur without the other occurring at the same moment.
    This is the most trustless solution that exists for moving sats between Bitcoin layers." ~ Frank Corva
    What role do trustless bridges play in connecting Bitcoin's various layers? Dive into the world of Boltz, a non-custodial exchange service that's quietly revolutionizing how we move Bitcoin between the base chain, Lightning Network, and Liquid. Discover how atomic swaps and submarine swaps are making cross-layer transfers more efficient and seamless. What implications do they hold for the future of Bitcoin's layered ecosystem?

    Chat_103 - Rethinking Bitcoin Education and Self-Custody Parenting

    "When you have a child, you care more than anyone else about that child. You're caring about their long-term success and happiness and their health. If you look at just a first principles basis, what is the school interested in? What is the state interested in? It's more about compliance and conformity. It's not about creativity. It's not about critical thinking. It is conformity and compliance." ~ Tali & Scott
    Can a board game teach Bitcoin better than a lecture? Join Tali, Scott, and me as we explore the power of storytelling and games in education, delve into the failures of traditional schooling, and discuss innovative ways to engage and educate about Bitcoin. Discover how a simple game can make complex economic concepts accessible and fun for everyone.
