Once BITten – down the Bitcoin Rabbit Hole with Daniel Prince

Once BITten – down the Bitcoin Rabbit Hole with Daniel Prince

I had an awesome time the other day with Daniel Prince on the new Once BITten Podcast. Diving into some of my own personal history with Bitcoin, what led me here, and the major changes I think we will see in the world over the next couple of decades. This was a really fun conversation and I think you guys will enjoy it. I was Once BITten, & here’s my story.

Don’t forget to check out Daniel’s new podcast, and the episode we mentioned where he spoke with Bruce about the best podcasts in the space, and the always bullish and existential DerGigi!

We’re All Default Keynesians Now

“Unless you began your Austrian economic education at birth in some unknown Austrian paradise, on this planet at this particular time in human history, I think we can safely say we’re all Keynesians by default.” – Brady Swenson @citizenbitcoin

Today we read a great little piece on how our economic understandings have become so skewed, why the default has become one of centralized, top down control over money, and how Bitcoin is set to right the world of our economic foundations. We’ve got a fun rant after this one too, so don’t miss it!

Check out the original article and drop some major applause. Don’t forget to follow Brady on Twitter and check out his show as well!

Paying Yourself for Privacy on Lightning?

Paying Yourself for Privacy on Lightning?

“The Lightning Network is best known for its fast and cheap payments. But the Layer 2 protocol could also offer more privacy than on-chain payments […] the developer thinks that “self-payments” could be an important part of the privacy puzzle.”  – Aaron Van Wirdum

Despite its focus on payments and scaling the Bitcoin system, Lightning may have incredible potential for privacy opportunities and improvements. Pseudonymous developer ZmnSCPxj has been detailing and expanding on these concepts in recent months, and who better to lay it all out for us than BitcoinMagazine, and Aaron Van Wirdum? Don’t miss today’s article on a new trick of payment privacy for Lightning…

Bitcoin is Not a Pyramid Scheme

Bitcoin is Not a Pyramid Scheme

“Not everyone understands what a pyramid scheme actually is, what the warning signs may be, or why such schemes always fail […] The distinctions should be glaringly obvious, but because bitcoin is complex and the very idea of money is not well understood, it can easily be confused.” – Parker Lewis

Today we are diving back into the Gradually, Then Suddenly series from Unchained Capital with an excellent breakdown of what Bitcoin is, and what it isn’t. Starting with the both obvious, yet not so obvious truth, that it is certainly not a pyramid scheme! Don’t miss another incredible installments by Parker Lewis.
