Bitcoin & Co. – Bitcoin in Africa Part 4: If Bitcoin Works in Zimbabwe, It Works Everywhere

Bitcoin & Co. – Bitcoin in Africa Part 4: If Bitcoin Works in Zimbabwe, It Works Everywhere

The fourth part of the six-part series about Bitcoin in Africa is an interview with a young woman from Harare. She calls herself a Digipreneur and is working as a teacher, too. With her organization that is focused on the digitalization of Africa, she aims to bring Zimbabwe forward. As the use of Bitcoin is outlawed and the state of human rights and free speech is rather poor in Zimbabwe, we agreed to not mention her name. We are talking about:

The opportunities for bitcoin adoptionShutdown of Golix, the only Zimbabwean crypto exchangeThe philosophy of Ubuntu and how it relates to bitcoinHyper-inflationFuture of Bitcoin in AfricaHow cryptocurrency feels like luxury in ZimbabweHow to design bitcoin for use in AfricaLibra, a game changerMost used social media toolsThe need for even more accessibility and ease of use

„If I have a Bitcoin, I can send money to my relatives, who are in Malawi or in Namibia or in Ghana. Currently I can’t with our own currency. I can’t send money out freely and quickly, but if we can sit down as a community and say okay, we need to buy a new borehole and we can do that just by using our phone. That’s an amazing thing. You know, if we look at it from a place of development, if you look at it from a place of helping the community and taking care of each other, if it allows us to take care of each other without having to create so many barriers and so much red tape to get stuff done with money, I feel like when you change that narrative, you speak to something very deep within an African.“ – Teacher and Digipreneur, Zimbabwe

„Cryptocurrency feels almost like luxury. It’s sad because I don’t think that’s what it’s supposed to be, but it was also bearing in mind cryptocurrency was designed in a functioning environment. It was designed by people who maybe haven’t spent 12 hours in a fuel queue?“ – Teacher and Digipreneur, Zimbabwe

„We need to start having more conversations about the future with the people who are actually affected by the future. Hold workshops under a tree in Binga and have someone who is there who can translate into the local language and have a conversation.“ – Teacher and Digipreneur, Zimbabwe

The Social & Economic Impact of Coronavirus with Raoul Pal – WBD207

The Social & Economic Impact of Coronavirus with Raoul Pal – WBD207

Location: SkypeDate: Thursday, 26th MarchProject: Real VisionRole: Co-Founder & CEO

The coronavirus pandemic has led to a global economic crisis. With the movement of people heavily restricted, businesses forced to close and supply chains disrupted.

Stock markets around the world have crashed, leading many to question if the restrictive measures to limit the spread of the virus are worth the economic impact. Donald Trump has stated that the ‚œcure‘ cannot be worse than the ‚œproblem‘.

To fight the recession and help those in need, most major economies, including the US, UK, Canada and Germany, have announced unprecedented economic stimulus packages to support the economy and those out of work.

The severity and duration of the impact coronavirus will have on the economy is almost impossible to predict; however, this event will likely alter the world forever.

In this interview, I talk to Raoul Pal co-founder & CEO of Real Vision and macroeconomist. We discuss the political and economic impact of coronavirus, the role of the state and the societal change that will occur.

The Block Crunch – Why „Scalability“ is Misleading for New Blockchains – Emre Tekisalp (O1 Labs)

The Block Crunch – Why „Scalability“ is Misleading for New Blockchains – Emre Tekisalp (O1 Labs)

With more „high-throughput“ blockchains launching in 2020, each promising to change the world, is transactional throughput the best way to think about these projects? Emre Teki…Ÿalp (@etekis) from O1 Labs joins me in discussing:

  • The new layer 1 chains: Coda vs. Solana vs. Polkadot
  • When „transactions per unit of decentralization“ is the right metric to compare blockchains
  • How Coda creates a constant-size blockchain that fits in your phone
  • How blockchains can differentiate as competition heats up

Coronavirus: The State vs Civil Liberties with Aleks Svetski – WBD205

Coronavirus: The State vs Civil Liberties with Aleks Svetski – WBD205

Location: SkypeDate: Monday, 23rd March Project: AmberRole: CEO

In late January, when the Chinese City of Wuhan was placed into a government-enforced lockdown to prevent the spread of the COVID-19 coronavirus. All non-essential businesses were closed, travel restricted, and people could only leave their home to buy food. While the measures put in place appeared extreme, they helped to ‚˜flatten the curve‘ and reduce the spread of the virus.

Since then, the disease has spread rapidly throughout the rest of the world. Some governments have chosen to follow China, opting for widespread lockdowns. Italy implemented a nationwide quarantine in early March, Spain followed suit shortly after and the UK announced yesterday it was placing the country into lockdown.

There are now 17 countries with lockdown measures in place. The hope is that by reducing the number of people infected, it will, in turn, lessen the strain on local healthcare systems and reduce the number of people dying from the disease.

What is the cost of these draconian measures? Is it worth the impact on the economy and the erosion of civil liberties? Many Bitcoiners align themselves closely with Libertarianism and are against state intervention and therefore disagree with the restrictive measures put in place across the globe. We do though live in a democracy; if the will of the people supports these measures, then should they be supported?

In this interview, I talk to Aleks Svetski, CEO at Amber and a passionate Bitcoiner. We discuss the COVID-19 coronavirus, state response to the pandemic, the economic impact and the threat to our civil liberties.

Chain Reaction – Dan Held and Paul Sztorc: Debating Bitcoin’s Security

Chain Reaction – Dan Held and Paul Sztorc: Debating Bitcoin’s Security

Host Tom Shaughnessy talks to Dan Held, Director of Business Development for Kraken Digital, and Paul Sztorc, an independent Bitcoiner. They debate the Bitcoin security model, with Paul feeling skeptical that fee rates will climb and Dan believing that fees are already growing and could subsidize Bitcoin security solutions.

Dan’s post (Bitcoin’s Security is fine) and Paul’s original post (Security Budget in the Long Run) for context on the episode.

Key Points

There’s a significant debate about looking at transaction fees alone versus the full cryptocurrency exchange fee structure.It’s important to look at volatility as a potential cost when transacting cryptocurrency.The network effect of an asset is one of its most important components.
