    The Big Short Squeeze with Willy Woo

    The Big Short Squeeze with Willy Woo

    “We’ve had massive amounts of little guys buying, they bought the covid dip, they bought this 2-month bottom, they’re like little geniuses; the hodlers are outdoing the so-called whale-trader conspiracy...the little guys are really nailing it.”— Willy Woo
    Location: RemotelyDate: Thursday 29th JulyProject: HypersheetRole: Co-Founder
    Since mid-May, Bitcoin has ranged between $30k-$40k, following a build-up of negative news, from bans in China to concerns about energy use. While on-chain analysis showed strong signs of accumulation during this time and pointed to the bull run not being over, the price kept grinding lower.
    By July 20th, the price again dropped below $30k and held below this crucial level for the longest period since the dip began. With sentiment heavily bearish and many calling for a further dip to ~$20k, what started as a small rally turned into a $10,000+ move after shorters were forced to close their positions. The price on one futures exchange hit as high as $48k on the back of the liquidations.  
    Bitcoin has been sat at $40k, another crucial level, for several days now, and with on-chain metrics showing a massive influx of new entrants and FUD wearing thin, market sentiment seems to be flipping positive.
    So has the bull run recommenced? And is this cycle different?
    In this interview, I talk to on-chain analyst and the co-founder of Hypersheet, Willy Woo. We discuss accumulation by small holders, the recent bullish move and why this might be the last cycle.

    Nassim Taleb’s Bitcoin Black Paper with Lyn Alden

    Nassim Taleb’s Bitcoin Black Paper with Lyn Alden

    “We’re seeing bitcoin monetize in real-time, what gold went through over thousands of years Bitcoin’s going through in so far 12 years, so it went from zero to a $trillion market cap...it’s trying to find its total addressable market.”— Lyn Alden
    Location: RemotelyDate: Tuesday 27th JulyProject: lynalden.comRole: Macroeconomist
    Nassim Taleb is a well-regarded author and statistician and one-time bitcoin bull who has since turned critic, claiming that it "can be neither a long or short term store of value" and that "its expected value is no higher than 0."
    Taleb recently wrote a black paper criticising bitcoin's ability to function as a store of value, questioning its ability to protect against oppressive governments and claiming bitcoins distribution is unfair. 
    Several key points in the paper were without merit, and it led to bitcoiners questioning whether the article is Taleb being intellectually dishonest or ignorant.
    In this interview, I talk to Lyn Alden, a macroeconomist and investment strategist. We break down Nassim Taleb's "Bitcoin Black Paper" and discuss his misconceptions and whether it offers any valid criticisms.

    F**k You Passports with Katie The Russian

    F**k You Passports with Katie The Russian

    “As the world becomes borderless for us remote workers and people with borderless money...we don’t see the borders anymore; and because of that the borders will start to fall.”— Katie The Russian
    Location: RemotelyDate: Monday 19th JulyProject: Plan B PassportRole: Founder
    Bitcoin and libertarianism go hand in hand. As such, avoiding tax and limiting reliance on the government is a significant goal for many bitcoiners. Plan B Passport, a company set up with bitcoiners in mind, aims to make that happen, and through their work, they want to accelerate the 'Sovereign Individual' thesis.
    By enabling people to obtain a second passport and removing their dependency on any single state, it empowers the individual while taking power away from governments. People can now vote with their money and their feet.
    So how easy is it to obtain a second passport, and what are the pros and cons?
    In this interview, I talk to Plan B Passport Founder, Katie the Russian. We discuss flag theory, the state as a service provider, why some nation-states will fail to compete in a free market and how Bitcoin enables all of this.

    Bitcoin Tech #6 - The Threat of Internet Centralisation with Shinobi & Dhruv Mehta

    Bitcoin Tech #6 - The Threat of Internet Centralisation with Shinobi & Dhruv Mehta

    “The price of freedom is eternal vigilance…’how prevalent is an attack’ is not really an important question, ‘how possible is an attack’ is the important question. When the value is 10x of today or 20x of today what people are willing to spend to attack it also goes up.”— Dhruv Mehta
    Location: RemotelyDate: Wednesday 21st JulyProject: Block Digest & Bitcoin CoreRole: Host & Developer
    A core fundamental feature of Bitcoin is decentralisation. Being a distributed and decentralised network, Bitcoin allows anyone to transfer money to anyone else without relying on a third party or intermediary to authorise or facilitate the transaction.
    For years bitcoiners have fought to keep Bitcoin as decentralised as possible. A segment of the Bitcoin community wanted to increase the block size to allow for more transactions in each block. However, the tradeoff of this proposed change would increase the size of blocks and thus the size of the blockchain, making it harder to run a node on standard hardware.
    While the debates around decentralisation are generally around the protocol rules, Bitcoin also relies on the Internet, something outside of bitcoiners’ control. Some aspects of the Internet are highly centralised and could potentially be used to attack Bitcoin.
    So, how significant is this threat? And, what can be done to stop it?
    In this interview, I talk to Shinobi, the host of Block Digest, and Bitcoin Core Developer Dhruv. We discuss the importance of decentralisation, the protocols that power the internet and how a centralised internet threatens Bitcoin.

    Lightning Series: Privacy and Security with Christian Decker & Carla Kirk-Cohen

    Lightning Series: Privacy and Security with Christian Decker & Carla Kirk-Cohen

    “Lightning is built on top of the main chain, so you are bringing your on-chain privacy with you, although there’s a transactional increase in privacy...if you send a UTXO from Coinbase to fund your channel, Coinbase knows you sent that to fund your channel.”— Carla Kirk-Cohen
    Location: RemotelyDate: Monday 19th JulyCompany: Blockstream, Lightning LabsRole: Researcher, Infrastructure Engineer
    The Bitcoin blockchain is an open public ledger, thus building privacy solutions on-chain is challenging. However, the Lightning network’s design is a massive improvement in privacy as the tradeoffs are different.
    Lightning removes transactional friction with significant security and privacy assurances today. But what are the potential attack vectors, and how might they be mitigated?
    In this interview, I talk to researcher Christian Decker and infrastructure engineer Carla Kirk-Cohen. We discuss the current state of privacy on Lightning, potential vulnerabilities and most likely solutions.

    Debt Cycles & the Rise of Bitcoin with Greg Foss & Dylan LeClair

    Debt Cycles & the Rise of Bitcoin with Greg Foss & Dylan LeClair

    “The reality is that Bitcoin will outcompete every other money going forward...at this point during the monetization process is going to increase 10, 100, 500-fold maybe.”— Dylan LeClair
    Location: RemotelyDate: Thursday 15th JulyCompany: Validus Power Corp, Bitcoin MagazineRole: Bitcoin Strategist, Director of Financial Markets & Research
    In Ray Dalio’s video How the Economic Machine Works, he explains the concept of deleveraging long-term debt cycles. Currently, central bankers have pulled all the levers they can to avoid unwinding the supercycle of global debt, but eventually, something has to give.
    The final tool that central bankers have to avoid creative destruction is inflation, and it is now a mathematical certainty that a devaluation of fiat currencies is coming. Is the rise of Bitcoin the only logical conclusion to the fiat money system?
    In this interview, I talk to Bitcoin Strategist Greg Foss and Dylan LeClair from Bitcoin Magazine. We discuss crony capitalism and perpetual bailouts, why debt cycles spell inflation, and how the world will turn to Bitcoin.
