    Read_571 - The Quest For Digital Cash [Alex Gladstein]

    "The fight that the cypherpunks mounted was one of the main reasons that the U.S. government lost the Crypto Wars. The authorities tried to stop the code and failed.
    This realization would loom large in Back’s mind 15 years later, in the summer of 2008, as he worked through that first email from Nakamoto." - Alex Gladstein

    Today we are reading an incredible article about the decades long quest of the cypherpunks, and the enormous contributions from Adam Back in that journey, to create digital cash. Another brilliant piece by Alex Gladstein and published on the Bitcoin Magazine. The Holy Grail of the cypherpunk mission is here, succeeding more every day and working its way into the psyche of every citizen in the world. But where did it arise, from what philosophy was it borne, and who were the players that made this possible today? All this and more in today's amazing piece.

    Read_569 - Calculating the Intrinsic Value of Bitcoin [Greg Foss]

    "Wake up people, this is not a drill. Contagion risks are increasing due to potential global stagflation... The intrinsic value of BTC has increased from the beginning of this year when I originally calculated the value to be over $150,000 per coin." - Greg Foss

    If we removed the global payments network, we removed the hardest monetary unit in the world, we took out the programmability, and wanted to focus entirely on a key value proposition of Bitcoin - that it is a money external to the fiat structure, and therefore one of the only things that could act as insurance to its default, say a "credit default swap" on the fiat system... how could we calculate it's worth? Greg Foss brings us an excellent piece on Bitcoin Magazine, don't miss it.

    Read_567 - Revenge of the Nodes - Part 2 - 21st Century Autonomy [Aaron Segal]

    "Not only is the world experiencing greater dispersion of outcomes, it is also changing at an increasingly faster pace. Raw data is pouring torrentially down upon us, overwhelming our neural capacity more each day. We are confused, overwhelmed and looking for anchors, answers, and authority.” - Aaron Segal

    Continuing with Part 2 of yesterday's amazing Bitcoin Magazine piece on the major trends of today, the inevitably of the race to zero volatility, the incentives that will lead to infinite fragility, and why the only correction must come from outside the system. The only external force to an ever centralizing system, is one of complete decentralization. This is part 2 of a 2 part read, don't forget to listen to Part 1 before diving in.

    Check out the original at the link below, with tons of excellent data and graphics accompanying it that help give the magnitude of the situation we find ourselves in:

Never Miss an Episode

This is one of the few podcasts that I literally never miss an episode of. Guy not only reads the best Bitcoin publications, but he adds awesome breakdowns of the piece. If you aren’t listening to Guy you are really missing out.
