In this episode, we're joined by Andrew M. Bailey, philosophy professor, Bitcoin researcher, and co-author of Resistance Money: A Philosophical case for Bitcoin.
Our conversation takes a deeper look at the psychological effects of Bitcoin, the journey to Bitcoin, and the concept of green mining. We discuss how Bitcoin can boost self-confidence among long-term holders and act as a safety net in unforeseen circumstances. We also highlight Andrew's journey from his philosophy background and teaching career to becoming a Bitcoin advocate. Finally, we delve into green mining, considering how an incentive structure could encourage eco-friendly practices without state intervention. Listen in as we discuss the trade-offs of green mining and the exciting future of Bitcoin.
