Bitcoin is Freedom with Russell Okung – WBD157
‚œThere are real issues that we can solve and the more people that get into this the better it is. It’s money for the people.‘‚“ Russell Okung
Location: Los Angeles
Date: Sunday, 1st September
Project: Bitcoin Is_
Bitcoin’s value lies not in its price but in its innate qualities and the freedom that those qualities offer. It is decentralised, trustless, secure and the hardest money ever to exist. It’s irreversible, scarce and accessible to everyone.
But many new to Bitcoin fail to understand these qualities. Usually, a first entry point is a fast-moving bull run where Bitcoin’s price is rapidly growing. Whether a newcomer makes gains or gets rekt, not all will stay, and those that do usually venture down the rabbit hole to learn more.
So how do you encourage mass adoption from people who might not understand the full capability of Bitcoin?
Russell Okung is an offensive tackle for the LA Chargers and he’s trying to do just that. In September he launched Bitcoin Is_, a conference in LA to help encourage mass adoption of Bitcoin.
This show is the fireside chat I hosted with Russell Okung at his event. We discuss what Bitcoin means to Russell, negotiating his own NFL contract, asking to be paid in Bitcoin and controlling your wealth.

Matthew Meinskis on Bitcoin as Base Money – WBD156
‚œI would not deny that purely an ideological reason of keeping a currency decentralised, out of the hands of any government is absolutely a top reason why I would hold it, and a benefit would probably happen where it would accrue value anyway.‘‚“ Matthew Me…inskis
Date: Thursday, 3rd October
Project: Crypto Voices
The monetary base is the amount of currency in any one country. It is a combination of both the circulating supply and money held in reserve at the central bank. In the 1900s, the global base currency was gold; however, in 1971, the U.S severed all ties with the gold standard and the monetary base changed to being government-issued fiat currency.
In a government-issued fiat-based monetary system, the government controls the printing and inflation of its currency. This allows governments to increase the monetary base at will. Whereas previous base money, gold, was hard to inflate, with fiat money it is easy. This leads to, for example, the U.S global base money rising from $100 billion to $19.2 trillion since 1970.
With Bitcoin, however, issuance and supply are fixed. There will only ever be 21 million created, with the issuance dropping every four years and no ability to inflate the supply. Could this lead to Bitcoin becoming the next global base money?
In this interview, I talk to Matthew Mezinskis from CryptoVoices. Matthew explains what base money is and if Bitcoin will ever become the worlds base money. We also discuss what money is, the gold standard, central banks holding Bitcoin and decentralisation.
