    Read_526 - Check Your Financial Privilege [Alex Gladstein]

    "only 13% of our planet’s population is born into the dollar, euro, Japanese yen, British pound, Australian dollar, Canadian dollar or Swiss Franc. The other 87% are born into autocracy or considerably less trustworthy currencies. 4.3 billion people live under authoritarianism, and 1.2 billion people live under double- or triple-digit inflation." - Alex Gladstein

    Another brilliant piece from Alex Gladstein and Bitcoin Magazine, this one on the incredible privilege of those inside the dollar bubble, looking out and claiming Bitcoin is useless or is bad for the world. They stand like hypocrites living without any of the problems that Bitcoin is specifically designed to fix, and is fixing. Three stories of those who live and experience the *real* world, give us a very different view of Bitcoin, & why it is critical for all of our futures that we stand behind it and see it succeed.

    Read_525 - One Does Not Simply Censor Bitcoin [Grubles]

    "How does anyone censor something abstract and intangible; something that can consist of an arrangement of numbers and letters, and can be transported via any medium? What do you do? Ban pen and paper? Phone calls and the spoken word? Smoke signals? Morse code? To what end?" - Grubles

    Are you hoping to censor Bitcoin? To stop people from transacting, or to prevent Bitcoin from being useable inside your country. Good luck, Bitcoin was built for just such a scenario. You certainly have a task ahead of you.

    A great piece today from Grubles on why its not quite the easiest of tasks to censor Bitcoin:

    Read_524 - The 7 Primal Elements of Bitcoin [Paulo Sacramento]

    “one of the main reasons for Bitcoin’s success is something that resonates with us as humans on a much deeper level: the primal elements of its brand, which when combined, turn it into a belief system." - Paulo Sacramento

    Today we go deeper than the technical aspects of Bitcoin, less about the code and innovation itself, & more about the human element. What is it about Bitcoin that connects it to the primal elements inside us? What makes Bitcoin not a mere technology, but an ideology? And what can it tell us about Bitcoin's long term staying power?

    Guy's Take #45 - A Mental Framework for Scaling

    Guy's Take #45 - A Mental Framework for Scaling

    No matter how often we cover these ideas, it still seems astonishingly common for new people to fall into the same old fallacies and the same misguided thinking. In this episode I try to cover all the major problems with the "raise the blocksize" mentality, and why its thinking incorrectly about what the system even provides, and most importantly how it provides it.

    We cover 7-9 key points and ways to think about scaling, the Bitcoin network, & what the future of it might be given enough time. Bitcoin is the tortoise, not the hare. And the problem isn't about building a VISA competitor, its about building a state-proof monetary base. Lets jump in!

    Read_523 - Fiat, Fascism, & Communism [Aleks Svetski]

    "Bitcoin’s security guarantee comes from the direct conversion of unforgeable energy into a fixed supply unit on an incorruptible monetary network. There is no alternative that exists that is more sound, efficient, effective and rooted in the physical laws of the very universe itself." - Aleks Svetski

    What is the true nature of our government systems and what are the consequences of collectivism. These are not only fundamental questions to understanding the problems of society today, but their exploration also enlightens how these very fallacies & failed systems are propped up by the nature of fiat money itself.

    Read_522 - The Hidden Costs of the Petrodollar System [Alex Gladstein]

    "It is truly impossible for the petrodollar system to be green when it is based on black gold." - Alex Gladstein

    Today we have another brilliant piece by Alex Galdstein, published on Bitcoin Magazine about the Petrodollar system, how it came about, why it has stuck around, & the horrible costs of maintaining it that so few are willing to acknowledge.
