Meet The Taco Plebs is a show by the plebs, for the plebs. This is meant to highlight the plebs and give them a bigger audience to have their voices heard. All plebs have an important voice with interesting stories and strong beliefs. The Taco Plebs are the cyber hornets of Bitcoin, calling out scammers & bad actors while stacking sats and helping each other learn as much as they can. You will never meet a more real group of people than the taco plebs. They are all truth and no noise. Sat stacking legends.

Building Access To Bitcoin For Everyone w/ SeedSigner
To be frank, I didn’t expect this podcast to be so profound!
When I invited SeedSigner on to talk about his project, I was hoping to discuss all the cool technical aspects, his ideas for the future and Bitcoin 2022. While we touched on all of these awesome things, what I found really compelling in our conversation was the guiding principles of the project SeedSigner highlighted.
Having access to Bitcoin, an open monetary network that does not debase your wealth, is a human right. Many countries or jurisdictions may stifle the bitcoin industry, making it impossible for some people to acquire hardware wallets that are otherwise common in the world. This project is an example of open-source software and engineering coming together to provide ever increasing access to Bitcoin.
SeedSigner highlighted the importance of providing access to custody solutions that prioritize the DIY, verifiable and transparent aspects of hardware and software. While he did say that the project could potentially some day have a second form that would increase scalability and minimize self assembly, there are no solid plans for this now, as their full attention remains on the DIY side of things.
One thing that stuck out to me from the conversation was his highlighting of the importance of fungibility and privacy. The two go hand in hand — if certain UTXOs are being labeled as criminal, those UTXOs must be subject to scrutiny that would deem them so. We also discussed if he thought CoinJoin and other similar privacy implementations are the key to this.
Of course, I can’t help but ask our current guests about Bitcoin 2022 — especially considering SeedSigner will be speaking there! If you haven’t already, please check out his article on his experience at Bitcoin 2021. In it, he details how it was his first real Bitcoin gathering, introducing his project and more.
At Bitcoin 2022, SeedSigner expressed his desire to continue to discuss his project with other people, but also, to finally catch up on all the other projects and happenings in the industry that seem to be flying by. I can fully relate to this feeling.
Make sure to check out the entire podcast and follow SeedSigner on Twitter for more updates on this project. And of course, I hope to see you all in Miami!
The Bitcoin Freedom Ride Across America
Motorcycle riding – the smell of oil, burnt rubber and leather in the sun is an intoxicating experience. The open road laid out before you can take you anywhere and it's in this situation that true freedom can be felt. What’s a better idea than taking this maximally free form of movement and taking it across America, land of the free, to celebrate Bitcoin, the freedom money? I don’t think there is a better person to take on this journey than Captain Sidd, an author here at Bitcoin Magazine and Bitcoin pleb extraordinaire. He will be launching his journey at Bitcoin 2022, happening April sixth through the ninth in Miami.
Beyond his glorious journey, we discussed his views on home mining and how it benefits Bitcoiners. There are so many use cases and interesting routes for the technology to go, especially for those who can harness their own energy.

How Bitcoin And Food Are A Revolution
I felt truly lucky having had a conversation with Texas Slim on the food supply, bitcoin, and the Beef Initiative. It's almost as if I’m privy to a revolution quietly growing amongst our communities; a food revolution. As people’s eyes are opened in regards to the centralization of our money supply, so too will their eyes open in regards to the centralization of the food supply, Slim explained. It was his own journey down the bitcoin rabbit hole that coincided with his journey down the food rabbit hole. After learning about how he can connect ranchers to consumers, and how that can improve not only community relations, but eliminate the regression in our food supply — it became his mission. Be sure to check out his contact information below if you’re interested in participating in the Beef Initiative, and to give the full podcast a listen — it’s worth it!
Simple Steps You Can Take To Help Further Bitcoin
Bitcoiner Brian Harrington talked about how you can limit your exposure to fiat, bring Bitcoin into your community and plan for the future.
Hyperbitcoinization is happening in real time. For fiat, the end is nigh. And no one explains this better than Brian Harrington. For him, Bitcoin is a lifestyle. Every day, the actions he takes center around furthering Bitcoin. Brian and I discussed many interesting topics in this episode of Meet The Plebs, but none are as fascinating to him as the “get on zero” movement. Described as maximally limiting your exposure to fiat usage and holdings, Brian talked about how this movement is a part of making hyperbitcoinization the reality of today. We also discussed planning for the future, stress and many other interesting topics. Be sure to check out the written interview below, and the podcast as well.
Good Writing Is Critical To Bitcoin Adoption
Writing high quality Bitcoin material helps to educate audiences, promote best practices and bring about adoption faster.
Bitcoiners like to read. Something about the knowledge expansion offered by bitcoin is addicting — and in the pursuit of learning, there is no substitute for reading. And for all of the wonderful Bitcoin knowledge and related knowledge we have, it must have been written! As Shawn Amick explained, he takes his writing seriously because it may be people’s first encounter with bitcoin. In our interview, he talked about how reading is the best way for people to learn Bitcoin quickly — and only through effective writing can we provide people with the best information possible.
Bitcoin for Boomers
The last time I talked to a lawyer, it wasn’t this fun. Mark Maraia, author, contributor and now contributor liaison here at Bitcoin Magazine, has incredible insight into various industries that are all impacted by Bitcoin. As he explained, there was a nagging feeling of looming problems and inefficiencies in many of the industries he’d worked in — but it wasn’t until 2020 that he realized bitcoin presents the solution to many of these issues. We expand on his perspective on health, how he relates bitcoin to fellow boomers, and networking at Bitcoin 2022. Be sure to check out the podcast and written interview below.
