    "It had a big impact on May, who melded the "Other Plane" with "Galt's Gulch" from Ayn Rand's Atlas Shrugged, which was a safe haven for rational and productive people protected from government coercion and taxation by an invisible shield. Instead of the Colorado mountains, May's cyberspace Galt's Gulch would exist on the internet, with cryptography providing protective cover." - Jim Epstein

    The argument between the "blockchain technology" and the "Bitcoin anarchists" happens to be a lot older than most know. Whether this is a technology that's outside the system, built to replace it, or one that is supposed to work within the system to make it faster and cheaper, can be traced all the way back to a debate between Eric Salin and crypto-anarchist Timothy C. May. What can the origins of the cypherpunk movement tell us about teh direction of Bitcoin today? Hear this amazing piece from Jim Epstein at Reason Magazine to find out!

    Chat #50 - Dawn of the Age of Bitcoin with Erik Cason

    Chat #50 - Dawn of the Age of Bitcoin with Erik Cason

    Bitcoin and the cryptographic systems that empower it, are not merely another new tech to make use of. They are a fundamental shift in the ability to defend value from organized violence. The impact on the world will be impossible to measure. We go deep down the rabbit hole in this excellent chat with Erik Cason, author of the cryptosovereignty.org blog.

    Read_451 - Multisig Appreciation Day [Marty Bent]

    Read_451 - Multisig Appreciation Day [Marty Bent]

    "When compared to gold, real estate, stocks, bonds or "fine art" that act as stores of value for many individuals, bitcoin that is held in a multisig wallet is an obvious step-function improvement in many regards." - Marty Bent

    Reading another short Bent from Marty on multisig and how its fundamentally a powerful tool for Bitcoin that isn't shared with any physical store of value. Guy gets into the concept of "deep" vs "shallow" protection in his take following the piece and how Bitcoin represents an order of magnitude improvement over the security & preservation of value. We should remember to tout multisig with more enthusiasm, its not "just another feature."

    Check out the original and subscribe to Marty's Bent at the link below:

    The tweet that inspired it all:

    Guy's Take #34 - TAPROOT IS MERGED!!

    Guy's Take #34 - TAPROOT IS MERGED!!

    A major step toward the next era of Bitcoin was made today. The code is final, and it is now in the Bitcoin codebase as of today. The next steps are an activation method, and a full client release for the network to begin the process of adding it to the global consensus.

    But before that happens, let's talk about where we are today, what advantages Taproot can give us again, & what the future of Bitcoin, privacy, & Lightning are with this new tool at our disposal. Today's Guy's Take is all about Taproot, so let's get into it!

    Want to check it out on Github and be a nerd?
    https://github.com/bitcoin/bitcoin/pull/19953

    For a deeper dive into Taproot check out Aaron Van Wirdum's piece digging into it on Bitcoin Magazine:
    Taproot is Coming:

    Read_449 - Deeper Down the Rabbit Hole [Knut Svanholm]

    Read_449 - Deeper Down the Rabbit Hole [Knut Svanholm]

    "Value is a strange concept because while it is arguably very real, it is entirely subjective, and because of this there is no yardstick or kilogram to measure it against." - Knut Svanholm

    Another from the amazing collection over at Citadel21.com, we dive even deeper down the rabbit hole with Knut's piece. What does it even mean to measure value with Bitcoin as our totem? What happens to prices in a perfectly finite monetary good? What would a future where the growth and productivity of the economy were captured by the money, rather than stolen by our money masters?

    The world is going to be a very different place in a Bitcoin future. The right questions can help us see it, and it's something that we cannot unsee. So lets dig into Knut's work, "Deeper Down the Rabbit Hole"
