    The Philosophy of Bitcoin with Professor Craig Warmke

    The Philosophy of Bitcoin with Professor Craig Warmke

    This week on the Bitcoin Magazine Podcast, host Christian Keroles sits down with Professor of Philosophy at Northern Illinois University Craig Warmke. Professor Warmke is quite unique in academia because he has fallen deep down the Bitcoin rabbit hole. As a scholar in philosophy, ethics, and human nature Craig is fascinated by Bitcoin's incentive structure and the implications of Bitcoin on society.
    Professor Warmke is saddened by the state of academia and laments about the broken incentives around tenure that force academics to hyper specialize rather than encouraging them to take more complete and wholistic world views and studies. Warmke believes it is this hyper focus in academia that causes most academics to miss Bitcoin altogether.
    Professor Warmke is currently managing a research collective around the ethics and philosophy around Bitcoin called Resistance.money with 2 fellow Bitcoin Philosophers Andrew Bailey and Bradley Rettler. The three write papers to demystify why Bitcoin is good as well as they are working on a book titled Resistance Money.
    Please enjoy this wide ranging conversation with Professor Craig Warmke .

    Banking on Bitcoin with Max Carjuzaa

    This week for the Bitcoin Magazine podcast, host Christian Keroles sits down with Max Carjuzaa the cofounder and ceo of Money on Chain. Money on Chain is a fascinating new trustless application built on the RSK side chain. RSK is a sidechain that pegs 1 to 1 with Bitcoin and allows users to leverage a turing complete computing environment. Money on Chain is part of the emerging decentralized finance and banking movement coming to bitcoin in a more native way. Money on Chain allows users to leverage their bitcoin collateral to mint dollar backed tokens as well as their B2X token that enables the users earn a 2x leveraged bitcoin position all with minimized trust on the RSK sidechain. 
    Carjuzaa explained the story behind money on chain and how he and his team conceived of the idea and leveraged RSK and learning from other ecosystems to build the MoC system in the most Bitcoin native way possible. Money on Chain is built to enable bitcoiners to express short and long sentiments on Bitcoin while also creating a dollar synthetic token that is permissionless and censorship resistant. Carjuzaa explains how RSK and Money on chain are thriving in Latin America where financial services and fiat currency are much worse and there is a substantial need for alternative banking solutions.
