Present and Future of the Euro, ECB Annual Report Breakdown - E232
In this episode I read through some of the ECB's Annual Report and comment on the current state of the Euro, as well as their efforts to create a digital Euro. This is applicable to bitcoin because the ECB is a major incumbent in the current system, and is trying to launch a bitcoin competitor, which they call a Central Bank Digital Currency.

Q&A on Deflation & Bitcoin: Part 2 - E231
Hopefully this episode helps you understand the monetary system and some of the arguments for a future outlook that is deflationary.
Questions were sent in by long time supporter Rob. We covered the first three in this Part 1 and then tackle the last two here in Part 2, along with a general discussion on CPI and asset price inflation. I finish by explaining why bitcoin doesn't need hyperinflation or even inflation to get adopted.

Lastly, is a quick discussion on EIP 1559, the proposal in Ethereum to burn transaction fees as a way to deflate supply.

Triffin Dilemma: Quick Part 2 - E227
Full show notes and links: https://bitcoinandmarkets.com/e227
In this episode, I attempt to clear up why I think Lyn Alden is using a Triffin-style premise and my problem with the Triffin dilemma in general. I've noticed people using Triffin-style arguments even more in the past couple of weeks, and it is very important that we have the tools to evaluate if this is the proper framework from which to build an understanding of the financial system.
