    Guy's Take #35 - The Next Domino...

    Guy's Take #35 - The Next Domino...

    We may have just seen the beginnings of central banks entering the Bitcoin game theory. The game is about to get real.

    Bitcoin has suddenly broken onto the political stage with the announcement that the Iranian Central Bank is officially purchasing Bitcoin from its licensed miners in order to use it to increase imports and get around the destructive US sanctions. Don't miss this Guy's take where we dig into this major development and exactly what it could mean.

    Read_455 - Bitcoin and the Rhythms of History [Brandon Quittem]

    "Individuals can opt-out of their local currency by joining the Bitcoin life raft. Protect purchasing power, rather than go down with the sinking ship that is their state." - Brandon Quittem

    A fascinating journey through the concept of the Fourth Turning and analysis of the incredible times we live in. More will change in the next decade than in the previous 8 combined. We are entering a time where our old institutions are torn down and built anew. Do we devolve into collectivism and totalitarian rule? Or can we find a way to protect and fan the flames of individual liberty and sustain a prosperous future for the next generation. Listen to this excellent piece to find out!

    Read_454 - The Last Word on Bitcoin's Energy Consumption [Nic Carter]

    Read_454 - The Last Word on Bitcoin's Energy Consumption [Nic Carter]

    "If your local energy cost is effectively zero but you cannot sell your energy anywhere, the existence of a global buyer for energy is a godsend." - Nic Carter

    What do all the "boiling oceans" alarmist miss about the nature & incentives of Bitcoin's energy consumption? Can we determine anything meaningful about Bitcoin's energy use by looking at the state of mining today, and the trends leading us into the future? Today we read a great piece from CoinDesk by the many times Bitcoin Audible author Nic Carter, on the fallacies of the general thinking, why Bitcoin gets picked on, & the simple thing the complainers could do to solve it.

    Read_453 - Lies, Deception, & Unnatural Money [Nik Hoffman]

    Read_453 - Lies, Deception, & Unnatural Money [Nik Hoffman]

    "money printing only “works” if the majority of people don’t even realize that it is steadily devaluing their earnings and savings. People must be deceived into believing a false ideology about this practice, but that can only work for so long; as we’ve seen throughout history, bad money doesn’t last forever." - Nik Hoffman

    What determines a good money and a bad money, and what exactly does it mean for a money to have value? A brief journey through the concepts that define a money, and the history that informs how and why money becomes a tool for lies and deception to the ultimate detriment of society. Are we doomed to forever repeat the past, or can Bitcoin solve this problem and close the book on monetary manipulation?  Find out in today's Bitcoin Magazine article from author Nik Hoffman.

    Check out the original at the link below to explore his other works, his monthly roundups, and of course follow Nik on Twitter:

    Read_452 - How Will Bitcoin Lead to More Freedom [Jim Epstein]

    "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

    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.
