Bitcoin Magazine: Mr. Pseu on Getting A Bitcoin Education

Bitcoin Magazine: Mr. Pseu on Getting A Bitcoin Education

In this episode, Dave Hollerith talks with A Boy Named Pseu (Phil Gibson). He is a libertarian writer and podcaster whose journey in understanding Bitcoin is more recent yet rooted by a longterm interest in Austrian economics and agorism.

To test his understanding of what actually happened to Bitcoin in 2019, Pseu recently wrote a Medium post, „Bitcoin Is Dead.“ In it he argues why Bitcoin’s growth stands out as uniquely different from how it has been portrayed by mainstream media outlets such as The Wall Street Journal.

Let’s Talk Bitcoin! #423 Decentralization Philosophy Part 1 ‚“ From Buddha to the Conquistadors

Let’s Talk Bitcoin! #423 Decentralization Philosophy Part 1 ‚“ From Buddha to the Conquistadors

The best Sundays are for long reads and deep conversations. Earlier this week, theLet’s Talk Bitcoin! Showgathered to discuss decentralization in blockchain projects, the historical context of decentralized organizations, the robustness it conveys but also the difficulties it engenders.

Episode Sponsors:Brave.comandeToro.com

In today’s episode, we apply concepts and stories from„The Spider and the Starfish: The Unstoppable Power of Leaderless Organizations“, a formational book on pre-blockchain decentralization written in the early 2000s, as the centralized US military struggled to effectively dispatch a much smaller decentralized force in Afghanistan. While the battlefield is different, the insight is perhaps even more relevant to the world of blockchain projects, their decentralized origins, and ambitions.

Later, we discuss the similarities betweendecentralized organizations and Buddha’s concept of self.

Chain Reaction – Blockchain Capital’s Spencer Bogart: A Bold Outlook for 2020

Chain Reaction – Blockchain Capital’s Spencer Bogart: A Bold Outlook for 2020

Host Tom Shaughnessy talks to Spencer Bogart, general partner with Blockchain Capital. Spencer discusses the current state of crypto, his predictions for its future, and more.

FYI: We’re looking for long term show sponsors. To be considered as a sponsor this show, contact Tom@DelphiDigital.io

Key Points:

  • Crypto is becoming increasingly relevant to global macroeconomics.
  • It’s difficult to pinpoint exactly where in the crypto development arc we are, so some believe it’s growing more slowly than expected and others believe it’s moving faster.
  • There is an overall shift in crypto from horizontal competition to vertical construction.

Episode Highlights

  • Blockchain Capital has over 300 million assets and 80 portfolio companies.
  • Spencer got into crypto after buying some Bitcoin, which led to him getting more and more interested and eventually writing some research pieces on the crypto space.
  • Bitcoin is just starting to become relevant on a macroeconomic scale.
  • Political unrest globally could be a driver towards crypto to avoid government regulation and interference.
  • Technological developments and the best tech are not what establish standards.
  • Spencer predicts that rather than a new protocol launching and becoming number one, more success and better standards will be established by people building on top of existing protocols.
  • People will build for the chains that have the most end-users, and those options are Bitcoin and Ethereum.
  • Now that it has become easier to build up the stack, Spencer predicts we will see more innovative and creative solutions.
  • Tom thinks given new involvement in crypto from China, Facebook, and other places, that we’re maybe moving slower than expected, but Spencer disagrees.
  • Spencer points out that asset value is not the only way to assess a crypto’s success, but that you can also look at the transaction value.
  • Spencer suggests when pitching to a VC, don’t overrepresent what you’re doing.
  • Be cautious about assuming that what you see online, on crypto Twitter for example, is representative of everything that’s going on in the industry; some of the most knowledgeable and impactful people aren’t on crypto Twitter because they’re too busy building.
  • Spencer’s long-term view of the industry is that there’s an overall shift from horizontal competition to vertical construction.
  • Bitcoin probably does not need vertical construction to grow because it is focused on a specific market and specific use cases.

Quotes

‚œKeep in mind that any kind of venture investor that you’re going to go and talk to, they just see a lot of opportunities, so they’re looking for reasons'“as much as they’re looking for reasons to invest in something, they’re also looking for reasons not to invest.‘ ‚“Spencer Bogart

‚œIt’s only because of fee pressure that we started to get innovations on things like lightning. So the other option would have been to increase the block size to try to keep transaction fees low, but the reality is there’s unbounded demand for cheap block space.‘ ‚“Spencer Bogart

‚œWe’re seeing a shakeout in terms of trying to establish standards. So I think these standards are trying to basically create the foundation for programmable assets. And standards are almost never set by best tech.‘ ‚“Spencer Bogart

The Beginner’s Guide to Bitcoin Part 4: What is Bitcoin with Stephan Livera – WBD185

The Beginner’s Guide to Bitcoin Part 4: What is Bitcoin with Stephan Livera – WBD185

Location: Skype

Date: Tuesday, 14th January

Project: The Stephan Livera Podcast

Role: Host

Welcome to the Beginner’s Guide to Bitcoin:

Bitcoin can be intimidating for beginners. The protocol is complicated, the community can be aggressive and unforgiving, silly mistakes can lose you money, and it is easy to succumb to altcoin marketing.

Bitcoin does though, offer you the opportunity to hold a new type of monetary asset, one which can’t be seized by the government and is censorship resistance and It has the potential to change the way the world.

The goal of What Bitcoin Did has always been about making things simple; there are no stupid questions, and the show is here to help beginners navigate this new world. To kick off 2020, we are launching a special series to help beginners understand Bitcoin. We will be looking at the basics from breaking down the protocol to explaining the economics and discussing the potential societal shift.

Beginners Guide Part 4 – What is Bitcoin with Stephan Livera

Despite being considered a high-risk asset, there are many reasons why people continue to buy Bitcoin. For some, Bitcoin is a speculative tool, for others, it is a means of payment, and for some, it is a hedge against local fiat currency risk and hyperinflation.

It is the unique features of Bitcoin, which is driving adoption, and it is the growth in adoption, which is driving speculation. One key feature of Bitcoin is that it is censorship-resistant, this means that anyone can send anyone else a payment which no third party can block. This was important to Wikileaks when PayPal froze their account and Visa and Mastercard stopped processing payments. Bitcoin became a lifeline for Wikileaks.

The key features of Bitcoin are open to everyone. With a smartphone and an internet connection, anyone can enter this new financial system without requiring permission from the government or an account with a bank. How is this possible? Because Bitcoin is decentralised.

So what makes Bitcoin censorship resistant? What is decentralisation, and why does it matter? And why are trusted third parties security holes?

In Part 4 of The Bitcoin Beginner’s Guide, I ask fellow podcaster Stephan Livera, what is Bitcoin? We discuss how Bitcoin works, its key features such as decentralisation and censorship resistance and the reasons why people might want to own it.

4 Minute Crypto – Tom Lee Calls For 100% Bitcoin Returns

Lee claims that Bitcoin will shine largely in part to increase geopolitical risk, notably a potential war looming between the US and Iran, and the fact that nearly all global economies are hanging by a thread, printing money to only further put off an inevitable market collapse.

Welcome to the Beginner’s Guide to Bitcoin:

Bitcoin can be intimidating for beginners. The protocol is complicated, the community can be aggressive and unforgiving, silly mistakes can lose you money, and it is easy to succumb to altcoin marketing.

Bitcoin does though, offer you the opportunity to hold a new type of monetary asset, one which can’t be seized by the government and is censorship resistance and It has the potential to change the way the world.

The goal of What Bitcoin Did has always been about making things simple; there are no stupid questions, and the show is here to help beginners navigate this new world. To kick off 2020, we are launching a special series to help beginners understand Bitcoin. We will be looking at the basics from breaking down the protocol to explaining the economics and discussing the potential societal shift.

Beginners Guide Part 3 – Aaron van Wirdum on Bitcoin’s Pre-History and the Cypherpunks

Founded by Eric Hughes, Tim May and John Gilmore the cypherpunks were a group of hackers, privacy enthusiasts and crypto-anarchists. The group consisted of some of the most prominent cryptographers including Phil Zimmermann, Adam Back, Nick Szabo and Hal Finney.

The cypherpunks had its factions; some focussed on privacy tools, others on encryption and some on building decentralised monetary systems. It was on the cypherpunk mailing list and during their meetups that the building blocks of Bitcoin were born.

On October 31st 2008, Satoshi Nakamoto emailed the cypherpunk mailing list, telling them „I’ve been working on a new electronic cash system that’s fully peer-to-peer, with no trusted third party.“ In the 11 years that followed Bitcoin has proven to be the most successful attempt at creating a censorship-resistant and trust minimised digital currency.

Each previous attempt at creating a form of digital money had solved parts of the puzzle, but Satoshi was able to put these pieces together along with his innovations to create Bitcoin. The previous attempts included:

In the 1990’s eCash, headed by David Chaum, attempted to make online payments anonymous.

In 1997 Adam Back created HashCash, a proof-of-work system to reduce email spam and prevent denial of service attacks.

In 1998 Wei Dai proposed B-money to allow for an „anonymous, distributed electronic cash system“.

Around the same time, Nick Szabo proposed Bit Gold where unforgettable proof of work chains would share properties of gold: scarce, valuable and trust minimised but with the benefit of being easily transactable.

In 2004 Hal Finney built upon the idea of Hashcash and created Reusable Proofs of Work.

When Satoshi released the Bitcoin whitepaper, rather than a revolution, Bitcoin was an evolution of all that had come before it with Bitcoin being the most trust minimised, censorship-resistant and hardest currency that has ever existed.

In Part 3 of The Bitcoin Beginner’s Guide, I talk to Aaron van Wirdum, a journalist and Technical Editor at Bitcoin Magazine. Aaron explains the cypherpunk movement and the digital money projects which paved the way for Bitcoin.
