    Read_396 - Crypto is Modern Alchemy [Meltem Demirors]

    "Early alchemy was concerned with purifying and perfecting certain materials, such as transmuting base metals like lead into noble metals like gold, creating an elixir of immortality, or creating panaceas to cure any disease." - Meltem Demirors

    How should we observe the "crypto" industry as a whole, and what, if anything, can we learn from the enormous ocean of altcoins that could find a useful application in the future of cryptography and networking systems? Meltem gives a very interesting analogy on how to look at the results of the "crypto" industry and a useful perspective in considering what we to bring with us, and what to leave behind.

    Check the original plus a ton of other great writing from Meltem at her blog "Meltem's Musings":

    Read_395 - The Bitcoin v Govt War is Vaporware [Jesse Lawler]

    Read_395 - The Bitcoin v Govt War is Vaporware [Jesse Lawler]

    "The world’s national currencies will offer Bitcoin only a sputtering resistance — more in word than deed — and they’ll dwindle into irrelevance as their defenders fail to defend, their battlements go unmanned, and the central banks’ centers will not hold." - Jesse Lawler

    Are we doomed for a massive battle between the monetary giants. The Federal Reserve and global powers pitted against the decentralized Bitcoin system? Or will Goliath simply fizzle out as the central banks fail to organize, find their personal interest at odds with institutional interest, and Bitcoin proves to be too distributed to even fight?

    Sci-Fi dystopia and a cypherpunk war, or no? A great, fun piece by Jesse Lawler, host of the Smart Drugs Smart podcast and fellow Crew member of the show, writes a really interesting piece on the potential conflicts, or lack thereof, in Bitcoin's future.

    Read_000 - The Bitcoin Whitepaper [Satoshi Nakamoto]

    "A purely peer-to-peer version of electronic cash would allow online payments to be sent directly from one party to another without going through a financial institution." - Satoshi Nakamoto

    To kick off the Third epoch in Bitcoin we are officially rebranding to Bitcoin Audible, and beginning with the historic Whitepaper by Satoshi himself, revealing this incredible system to the world. Solving the Byzantine General's problem, a breakthrough in consensus, a structureless, distributed monetary system incentivizing cooperation and truth. The Whitepaper is the earliest window into a groundbreaking network that already has, and will continue, to change the world.

iPhoneUser62 ,

Big thank you to you Guy!!!

One of the best podcasts that I’ve gone through since there was no iPod yet :)...

Listening to this is the best use of YOUR precious time!!!Thank you Guy!!!

So great-full for sharing sensitive info to tech us security. I’m roughly double your age but you are a great teacher for me.

You cannot turn back once you are here.

Guy does two things brilliantly:
1) Narrates some of the best ECONOMIC literary pieces published today, and
2) Gives consistently prescient opinions based on critical thinking and first principles.

I don’t know where the end of this black hole of knowledge and freedom goes, but there is no turning back.
