115. The Pitfalls of the Fiat Standard: Marty Bent interviews Saifedean Ammous
The Bitcoin Standard Podcast
Fiat money doesn't just affect economic exchange, its impact on society is much wider. In this episode, Marty Bent, host of the Tales from the Crypt Podcast, interviews Saifedean about the ways fiat money encourages negative societal impacts ranging from climate alarmism to soil degradation to poor diets. They focus on the widely accepted need to transition to from fossil fuels to “renewable” energy and how government funding of science encourages the publication of studies that predict catastrophes and propose state intervention to avoid them. They also discuss how government statistics are manipulated to underplay the negative impacts of fiat and how people can opt out by adopting a bitcoin standard.ResourcesMarty Bent’s website.Marty Bent on Twitter.The Moral Case for Fossil Fuels by Alex Epstein.The Bitcoin Standard Podcast episodes with Alex Epstein here and here.The Bitcoin Standard Podcast episode Is CO2 the Climate Control Knob? with Tom Nelson.The St Louis Fed compares the cost and protein content of turkey and soy.Marty Bent podcast episode with Untapped Growth for discussion of regenerative farming.

Read_625 - The Cascading of Interconnected Risk [Marty Bent]
"This created a ticking time bomb with a very short timer. That money was going to "work" in completely artificial markets that were being driven by pure central planning insanity instead of actual fundamentals. As everyone and their mother who had excess cash was shoveling it into financial and real estate assets, global supply chains were quickly breaking down." - Marty BentToday we dig into what exactly is going on in the financial markets, why equities are crashing over a tiny increase in the Fed funds rate, what it means, and how on earth we found ourselves in this situation. It is core incentives built into our fiat monetary foundations that have created a world of leverage on top of leverage, and when the value of the collateral begins to correct, we witness "the cascading of interconnected risk..."

“Once you have international trade getting settled in Bitcoin instead of the dollar, I think that’s when you’ll know: alright, we’re under a Bitcoin standard. ”— Marty BentMarty Bent is the founder of the Bitcoin focused media company TFTC.io, Venture Partner at Ten31, and Director of Cathedra Bitcoin. In this interview, we discuss resisting centralised narratives around the Ukraine/Russia conflict and the push for ESG and renewable energy. - - - - The fragmentation of modern media provides access to a limitless supply of analysis, interpretations, and opinions. But rather than bringing clarity, this cacophony of commentary more often results in confusion. Into this mix, powerful centralised institutions mobilise significant resources to drive narratives. Over the past few generations, fearless investigative efforts have identified examples of deficient and deceptive institutions. This has resulted in such centralised messaging being treated with caution, if not explicit, cynicism. But does that mean we should be sceptical of all messaging emanating from centralised bodies? What are the implications for society if there is widespread distrust of such communication? The result is that there are different prisms through which to view events. The human misery caused by the Ukraine and Russia conflict is heartbreaking, but does that mean there are clear paths of action we can support? The forecasts of climate change impacts are worryingly bleak, but is there reasonable uncertainty, and what are the full implications of promoted mitigations?The only thing we can do is to remain engaged, and, as Marty Bent states, “bring back civility to these types of conversations.”This episode’s sponsors:Gemini - Buy Bitcoin instantlyBlockFi - The future of Bitcoin financial servicesSportsbet.io - Online sportsbook & casino that accepts BitcoinCasa - The leading provider of Bitcoin multisig key security.Ledger - State of the art Bitcoin hardware walletCompass Mining - Bitcoin mining & hostingLVL - Bank on BitcoinBCB Group - Global digital financial Services-----WBD480 - Show Notes-----If you enjoy The What Bitcoin Did Podcast you can help support the show by doing the following:Become a Patron and get access to shows early or help contributeMake a tip:Bitcoin: 3FiC6w7eb3dkcaNHMAnj39ANTAkv8Ufi2SQR Codes: BitcoinIf you do send a tip then please email me so that I can say thank youSubscribe on iTunes | Spotify | Stitcher | SoundCloud | YouTube | Deezer | TuneIn | RSS FeedLeave a review on iTunesShare the show and episodes with your friends and familySubscribe to the newsletter on my websiteFollow me on Twitter Personal | Twitter Podcast | Instagram | Medium | YouTubeIf you are interested in sponsoring the show, you can read more about that here or please feel free to drop me an email to discuss options.

WBD: Live in Nashville with Preston Pysh & Marty Bent
What Bitcoin Did with Peter McCormack
“The price appreciation on bitcoin is not coming from an ETF, the price appreciation that’s going to make bitcoin scream over $1 million a coin, is going to be when the fixed income market comes to the realization that the 5% inflation is not going away.”— Preston PyshLocation: Nashville, TNDate: Thursday 30th SeptemberCompany/project: The Investors Podcast & Great American Mining & TFTCRole: Host & Director of Business Development & Host2021 has been a year of significant disruption. Trillions in deficit spending are ongoing. Many countries are experiencing the highest consumer inflation seen in decades, while assets and commodities prices have soared at a phenomenal rate.Meanwhile, China kicked half of Bitcoin’s hashrate offline by instituting a country-wide ban on mining. However, the Bitcoin network has demonstrated its antifragility as thousands of ASIC machines migrate to other countries and come back online.While many Bitcoin naysayers have lambasted the energy use of Bitcoin’s mining industry as being environmentally unfriendly, mining is driving more efficient use of low-cost, renewable, and otherwise wasted energy sources.In a world that is full of distortions, is Bitcoin the answer to society’s problems?In this live interview, I talk to Preston Pysh, the host of The Investor Podcast, and Marty Bent from Tales From the Crypt and Great American Mining. We discuss rising inflation, why bitcoin mining is good for global energy use, and why bitcoin is this answer to many problems.This episode’s sponsors:Gemini - Buy Bitcoin instantlyBlockFi - The future of Bitcoin financial servicesSportsbet.io - Online sportsbook & casino that accepts BitcoinCasa - The leading provider of Bitcoin multisig key security.Exodus - The world's leading Desktop, Mobile and Hardware crypto wallets.Ledger - State of the art Bitcoin hardware walletCompass Mining - Bitcoin mining & hosting-----WBD407 - Show Notes-----If you enjoy The What Bitcoin Did Podcast you can help support the show by doing the following:Become a Patron and get access to shows early or help contributeMake a tip:Bitcoin: 3FiC6w7eb3dkcaNHMAnj39ANTAkv8Ufi2SQR Codes: BitcoinIf you do send a tip then please email me so that I can say thank youSubscribe on iTunes | Spotify | Stitcher | SoundCloud | YouTube | Deezer | TuneIn | RSS FeedLeave a review on iTunesShare the show and episodes with your friends and familySubscribe to the newsletter on my websiteFollow me on Twitter Personal | Twitter Podcast | Instagram | Medium | YouTubeIf you are interested in sponsoring the show, you can read more about that here or please feel free to drop me an email to discuss options.
This episode is an impromptu bonus episode of the Talk.Energy Podcast that I live streamed with Marty Bent late night at the NAPE conference in Houston Texas. After a long day of walking the conference floor and attending multiple happy hours we decided to do a stream of consciousness live podcast. We covered a wide variety of topics including, energy, bitcoin mining, the Afghanistan situation, the ESG movement, and a bunch of other topics. Hope you enjoy the show!

Meanwhile, Bitcoin’s development, hash rate, and adoption are all increasing.ESG is about control; it’s an attempt to manipulate access to capital and make it contingent on meeting ESG subjective criteria.The state picking winners and losers is the slippery slope of ESG, eventually controlling how businesses run their operations. Including energy mix, board room diversity, etc.It’s dangerous to enforce using unreliable energy sources for securing the electrical base load, with consequences evident in rolling blackouts and rising electricity pricesReliable energy that can handle peak demand during adverse conditions is essential to electrical grids.Bitcoin energy mix already has the highest penetration of renewables of any industry in the worldThe mining industry is engaging in a losing battle to appease ESG guidelines. However, social and governance regulations will follow environmental onesGreat American Mining (GAM) uses waste gas that would otherwise be flared to mine bitcoin. It isn’t always possible to transport this gas. Instead, GAM brings the market to the molecule.Proof of work with difficulty adjustment melds the physical and digital worlds together, bringing to fruition the century old idea of a currency backed by energy.By contrast, Proof of Stake (PoS) rehashes our current system into another one in the blockchain space.
