Massive government intervention in markets is underway, but what happens to Bitcoin as a result? In a recent episode of The Breakdown, host Nathaniel Whittemore interviewed “We Study Billionaires” host Preston Pysh about it. Along the way, Pysh spoke (below) about what he sees as the biggest misconception in the markets today. Preston Pysh: When you get […]
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 […]
A roundtable conversation about the current epidemic chaos and how it will impact Bitcoin, the global financial system, remote working, and more.
The top Bitcoin investment sites for buying Bitcoin. Going Bitcoin-only with automatic recurring purchases is a smart business decision.
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. For the same reasons that many people like holding gold, I think it’s a reasonable proposition that Bitcoin will wind up being valued at least as highly as gold.
The next Bitcoin halving is almost here. We explore whether the halving is priced in, if other coins are a model for Bitcoin, and fears of a mining death spiral.
Competing on the sound money front requires an above-all commitment to decentralization and properties that are truly hard to change and attack. Unfortunately coins cannot compete on this front by virtue of the fact that they are built typically by centralized teams with a profit motive, and not a happy accident of a slowly growing ecosystem that was built by cypherpunks.
Bitcoin represents economic liberty. If you own Bitcoin, you have portable wealth. You can walk away from a failing regime and not lose your life savings.
Unlike a stock split, where the resulting shares still refer to the original company, a Bitcoin fork is much more analogous to creating new unrelated digital assets out of thin air at zero cost, and gifting them to existing holders of Bitcoin. A Bitcoin fork does not affect the 21 million supply limit of Bitcoin itself.
If you could use tulips to transmit value across the globe instantly to anyone in any country regardless of whether they had a functioning government or banking system. If the government couldn’t come to your door and take away your tulips or control who you could sell them to or in what ways. If tulips could […]
As money rapidly turns digital, we must contemplate three possible futures of money: central bank managed, corporate issued, and decentralized.
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. When you give that money to another person, they […]
“We’re all Keynesians now.” Milton Friedman coined the phrase, often miscredited to Richard Nixon, back in 1965. And that hasn’t changed since then. 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 […]
Not too many years from now, the number of Bitcoiners in the United States of America will cross ten million. When we hit that milestone, it’s game over: Bitcoin wins.
