Bitcoin is Not Too Volatile

Bitcoin is Not Too Volatile

To think that a hard monetary asset, with a perfectly inelastic supply, could go from a $0 market with no infrastructure, liquidity, or demand, to a global monetary instrument with vast infrastructure, the highest market liquidity, demanded by billions, but that this could somehow occur *without* volatility in the price, is an absurd & deeply ignorant claim.  Thoroughly debunked by Parker Lewis in the continuation of his amazing “gradually, then suddenly” series at Unchained Capital.

Bitcoin Can’t Be Copied

The BitTorrent Lessons for Crypto Series [Parts 1-4]

The BitTorrent Lessons for Crypto Series [Parts 1-4]

Bitcoin is an incredibly novel technology, there are few technologies that can boast the revolutionary impact that Bitcoin potentially has. However, there is still much to be learned from its predecessors and benefactors.  One of those being the resilient and disruptive ecosystem of the BitTorrent protocol.
Simon Morris, a 10 year veteran of the company, BitTorrent Inc., brings us a 4 part series exploring exactly what we can learn from our Peer-2-Peer history, and the challenges that faced an industry breaking technology.

Find Part 1: Why Bitcoin Mattered, on Simon’s Medium page below, along with the rest of this excellent series.  Don’t forget to drop some claps on this one!

In the context of Part 2, knowing that the true value of decentralization is in “breaking the rules,” Simon Morris now explores the consequences of a systems “intent,” the incredible complexity and balance it requires to sustain them, & the paradox of making changes to a system whose power resides in its capacity to resist change.  Listen to Part 3 of Simon’s series on the lessons we can learn from BitTorrent.

Lets see if we can’t add 300 claps to Simon’s series by heading over to the original article and going trigger happy on the applause button at:

So what is the outcome of decentralized disruption?  Who are the winners when there is a shift to an entirely new paradigm? Don’t miss the conclusion of Simon Morris‘s excellent series on the lessons #Bitcoin & Crypto can learn from the history and challenges of the BitTorrent ecosystem.
