We currently have govern­ments and central banks all over the world stepping up to try to save their economies from imploding. But as we know, the reason they are imploding is because every­body’s on lockdown and produc­tivity is grinding to a halt. There’s going to be a lot less stuff produced. There’s also going to be a lot […]

We are living in hyper­bit­coiniza­tion, a process which is basically repricing the world in Bitcoin. This is because Bitcoin is actually much better than gold as a store of value.

What is Bitcoin?

By Yan Pritzker

Bitcoin is a peer to peer electronic cash, a new form of digital money that can be trans­ferred between people or computers without any trusted inter­me­diary (such as a bank) and whose issuance is not under the control of any single party.  Think of a paper dollar or metal coin.
