WBD309 - Tesla's $1.5bn Bitcoin Buy with American HODL & Preston Pysh
On Monday, Tesla made the announcement that Bitcoiners had been anticipating. In their annual report to the SEC, Tesla disclosed that they had invested $1.5 billion in Bitcoin and the Bitcoin price soared to a new all-time high of over $47,000. In 2020, Michael Saylor and MicroStrategy paved the way for corporations to add Bitcoin to their treasuries and since then several companies have followed suit, including Square and MassMutual. However, as the richest man in the world and one of the most influential in the tech industry, Elon Musk's could prove to be the most important in the history of Bitcoin. It has sent shockwaves through the corporate world and will make the CEO of every publicly traded company question their treasury strategy. But, what does this mean for Bitcoin? And does this mark the beginning of the corporate race for Sats? In this interview, I talk to American HODL and Preston Pysh, author, engineer & the host of The Investor Podcast. We discuss Tesla's announcement, MicroStrategy's influence and corporations scrambling to buy Bitcoin.

WBD308 - The Path to a Bitcoin Standard with Dan Held
The Gold Standard was a monetary system that linked the value of a country's currency to the amount of gold held in reserve. The Gold Standard placed restrictions on a governments ability to print money. Still, in 1971 Nixon announced that the US would sever all ties between the dollar and gold, and would no longer convert dollars to gold at a fixed value of $35. Nixon's decision severed all links to The Gold Standard, and since then the world has been in a fiat monetary system. Many Bitcoiners believe that the fiat monetary experiment is failing and it is inevitable that, at some point, the hardest form of money will win out - bitcoin. Hyperbitcoinisation is when bitcoin becomes the world's dominant form of money and the entire financial system's base asset. But how do we get there? And what are the implications on society? In this interview, I talk to Dan Held, the Director of Business Development at Kraken. We discuss the implications of a Bitcoin Standard, onboarding, adoption, decentralisation and layer one ossification.
