    Owning The Entire Bitcoin Mining Stack w/ Alex Liegl

    Owning The Entire Bitcoin Mining Stack w/ Alex Liegl

    Today I have the pleasure of chatting with Alex Liegl, CEO of Layer1 Technologies. Alex and his company have made numerous headlines recently with the introduction of their turnkey, fully integrated Bitcoin mining data centers, or "Bitcoin batteries".   Alex explains how Layer1 is revolutionizing Bitcoin mining in North America by owning the entire Bitcoin mining stack, from chip to watt. We also discuss how setting up his facilities in west Texas allows them to sell energy back to the grid during peak demand, and stabilize the energy grid in hot summer months.  Alex gives us a view of what's in the future for Layer1 and how they plan to scale exponentially.

    Debunking the Bitcoin Stock-to-Flow Model w/ Jesse Proudman

    Jesse Proudman, CEO of Strix Leviathan, sits down with us today to discuss their newest research article exposing the fatal flaws of Bitcoin's widely accepted stock-to-flow model. He reveals the entire story, from when he became involved in cryptocurrency markets, to how he started Strix Leviathan, and why they became interested in the S2F model in the first place. Our conversation sheds light on not only the problems with the BTC model but also how these sort of unverified narratives can negatively affect the entrance of more institutional money into cryptocurrency markets.

Easy but Knowledgeable

Really enjoy listening to your team. I particularly enjoyed the one on OSL. Smart but a down to earth homeboy explaining the state of the (dis)union. Good stuff.

Best Crypto Podcast, even if you don’t mine!

This is my all time favorite crypto(blockchain) podcast. Through the lens of mining and this groups extended knowledge and experiences; countless golden nuggets and gems about how crypto works, markets, trading and the future of crypto are dropped for the listeners to find like easter eggs amongst tasteful jokes and commentary.

I highly recommend this podcast for anyone interested in learning more about crypto or for advanced initiates of the wild west that is crypto/blockchain. As they say DYOR and verify don't trust your information sources.
