    "Coming off the Bitcoin 2022 conference, you might feel a little down from the high of meeting and spending time with Bitcoiners. I've also found that going to these events leaves you with an additional sense of urgency to do something more, or to become more involved somehow. One way to do that is to participate in Bitcoin projects or work in a Bitcoin job." - Stephan Livera

    Reboot - Why the Yuppie Elite Dismiss Bitcoin [Croesus]

    "When I thought about what is the defining difference between the Bitcoin maximalists and my yuppie elite friends, the surface level distinctions that popped out were political (e.g., libertarianism, Trump support, second-amendment rights, Black Lives Matter). But these stem from a deeper divide: the degree to which a person has trust in the system." - Croesus

    Read_626 - Digital Alchemy, A Post-Mortem of the Crypto Crash [Lyn Alden]

    "Several exchanges in the industry fuel bubbles for a quick buck as well. If something starts to get momentum, including meme coins like DOGE or SHIB that don’t realistically have a substantial future, they promote those coins to their users, which can suck retail investors into buying the bubble top. Plus, a lot of Youtube and TikTok influencers pump small coins, and use their audience as exit liquidity." - Lyn Alden

    For those of you who may be unaware, there was a recent blow up of a deca-billion dollar LUNA and TerraUSD algorithmic stablecoin. Essentially the entire market capitalization of UST and LUNA vanished in a matter of hours in a spectacular economic death spiral. How did this happen and what was the source of such an incredible risk of what had recently become one of the most promising "crypto" projects in recent months? Find out in Lyn Alden's Post-Mortem of the Crypto Crash.

    Read_625 - The Cascading of Interconnected Risk [Marty Bent]

    "This created a ticking time bomb with a very short timer. That money was going to "work" in completely artificial markets that were being driven by pure central planning insanity instead of actual fundamentals. As everyone and their mother who had excess cash was shoveling it into financial and real estate assets, global supply chains were quickly breaking down." - Marty Bent

    Today we dig into what exactly is going on in the financial markets, why equities are crashing over a tiny increase in the Fed funds rate, what it means, and how on earth we found ourselves in this situation. It is core incentives built into our fiat monetary foundations that have created a world of leverage on top of leverage, and when the value of the collateral begins to correct, we witness "the cascading of interconnected risk..." Don't miss this excellent piece from Marty Bent & Guy's rant to follow on today's show.

    Guy's Take #55 - On the Economics of CTV Batching, & Where I was Wrong

    Guy's Take #55 - On the Economics of CTV Batching, & Where I was Wrong

    So what exactly did I get wrong in Guy's Take #54, and why? Let's dig back into the economic of CTV and transaction commitments, to clear up what I was misunderstanding around unrolling large batch transactions and who pays the cost of doing so. Are the incentives aligned or not? We discuss in today's Guy's Take episode.

    Read_624 - Riding the Lightning Network [Sam Callahan]

    "Despite all of these constraints, the free market finally provided the competition these incumbent banks so desperately needed. Bitcoin and the Lightning Network have arrived to show the world that we finally have the technology available to bring cheap global payments to everyone in the world." - Sam Callahan

    Today we dig into the absolute mess of differing standards, wall gardens, high fees, jurisdictional conflict, & liability risks that abound in our global financial and payments infrastructure. Why are cross border payments so slow and so expensive, and why specifically is it so much worse in the areas of the world where it is most higher needed? We explore all of this with Sam Callahan and the SwanBitcoin blog and dig into the fundamental reasons why Bitcoin and Lightning are here to finally, after decades of failed attempts and half measure, finally bring competition and innovation in a sphere that is absolutely ripe for massive disruption. Don't miss this episode
