    EP35.P2 Mark Moss - Crypto Scams, Bitcoin as a Banking Bridge, and The UnCommunist Manifesto

    EP35.P2 Mark Moss - Crypto Scams, Bitcoin as a Banking Bridge, and The UnCommunist Manifesto

    In this episode of Navigating Bitcoin’s Noise, Mark Moss and I discuss the opportunity Bitcoin offers, Crypto scams, and his book The UnCommunist Manifesto. In episode two we focus more on the uncomfortable reality of how money has added to the slow rise of socialism and Communism.

    Our October conversation was pre-FTX’s collapse. However, we discussed why and how venture capitalists used platforms like SBF’s to launch crypto scams and create Ponzi pools of capital.

    Additionally, we covered the opportunity of merging the traditional internet, Bitcoin rails, and banking. We chatted about the power behind major revolutions like this digital one, the legal plunder of wealth, the incentives of fiat, and the unfortunate comfort found by constantly hearing the message of, “you are the victim.”

    If you’re looking to better understand bitcoin’s past and its future potential as an economic network, then join us and listen in.

    For this podcast, we skipped the traditional intro and jumped right into the conversation. I hope you enjoy!

    EP34_Timothy Peterson Comparing Bear Markets, Recession Data, and Bretton Woods 2.0 with Bitcoin

    In this episode of Navigating Bitcoin’s Noise, I am joined again by Timothy Peterson from Cane Island Research. Tim and I discuss a few of his recent charts.

    One compares past Bear Markets to today’s market and another looks into the Leading Economic Index, the LEI. Tim shares how he looks at the LEI and what it signals about recession probabilities. Additionally, we discuss the potential for Bretton Woods 2.0 with Bitcoin acting as a form of reserve for smaller nations and we unpack why a Fed pivot may not be the best thing for markets. High rates for longer may be uncomfortable, but history tells us that lowering rates is likely not the best solution for this Fed conundrum.
