    98: Gold Wars and the Gold Standard

    In this episode, Keegan and Mrugakshee talk about the book, Gold Wars by Ferdinand Lips. The book is about the history of gold as the base money for civilization and how we've arrived in the 20th century on a fiat standard. The podcast is about laying out some of the key points of the book and articulating the key points. Though we only scratched the surface, you can always get the real book and discover how gold is the original and supreme money of the people.

    97: Jamie King - Trust, Piracy, and Bitcoin

    Jaime King is a producer of documentary and films. His latest release is “This Machine Greens” a documentary busting myths and misinformation about the environmental impact of Bitcoin. Jaime gives us his story of how he found himself as a supporter of bitcoin, through his work on censorship resistant technologies like bit torrent. The discussion wanders form the history of the internet, to cipher punks, to bitcoin, to the present day war on free speech.

    96: Lava Wallet - Next Gen Bitcoin Wallet

    96: Lava Wallet - Next Gen Bitcoin Wallet

    Shehzan Maredia and James Taylor join us to talk about Lava, a next generation bitcoin wallet that they’re developing. The two noticed a disconnect in the bitcoin wallet space wherein there is no single wallet that combines safe storage of bitcoin, instant transactions with lightning, earning a yield, and buying synthetic assets such as stocks all through non-custodial means.

    Lava is an exciting and ambitious project made possible through a mechanism called discrete log contracts (DLCs). We discuss how the wallet is built, and touch on the bitcoin-based philosophies that the founders cultivated while in college.

    94: Married to Bitcoin (and each other!)

    94: Married to Bitcoin (and each other!)

    We (Keegan and Mrugakshee) are married to bitcoin, and each other. We sometimes get questions about being a couple with all of our money in Bitcoin. Does Keegan make the financial decisions? How did Keegan convince Mrugakshee to move their money into Bitcoin? Or, was it a joint decision? Couples finances is a tricky subject to navigate, so we decided to dedicate a whole episode to answer our listeners questions. 

     

    Thanks for the request, TJ!

Balance

Mrugakshee and Keegan provide a balanced perspective on finances and Crypto literacy. Between them you will get an understanding from entry level to higher end advance practices that can be applied on any level.

Pleasantly surprised

A welcome offbeat podcast. My main interest is understanding yield strategies. It’s informative from the hosts who are fully using crypto to learn from them. Encourage the hosts to be transparent if they have any sponsorships (not clear to me) and to keep exploring ways to be financially independent.
