Bitcoin v The Banks with Simon Dixon & Bill Barhydt

What Bitcoin Did

“I’m truly blessed to be able to be involved in the disruption of the entire financial system one product at a time, until eventually Peter can just say Fuck the Banks.”— Simon DixonLocation: RemotelyDate: Tuesday 13th AprilCompany: BankToTheFuture, AbraRole: Co-Founder, CEOThe banking system is a regulated Ponzi scheme driven by leverage and debt with onerous rules and powerful gatekeepers. When you are in the system, you are a slave to it, and worse still, the banks can freeze your payments and shut down your accounts.Simon Dixon envisions a future where we aren’t beholden to deputized authoritarian institutions to move and store our money; he thinks we can achieve it by plugging decentralized and centralized systems together. And Bill Barhydt is helping build that future.While Bitcoin is a savings based economy that may help rid us from a world drowning in debt, there are still questions about how people with one foot in the old system, and another foot in the future, will make the transition while maintaining their privacy. While many promising solutions are in development, it’s not clear exactly how we will be borrowing, transacting, and securing our wealth.In this interview, I talk to Simon Dixon, the Co-Founder of BankToTheFuture and Abra CEO Bill Barhydt. We discuss the legacy banking system, the fight for privacy, and the future of banking in a bitcoin world. 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 wallet-----WBD334 - 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.

#bslPodcast [42] with Bill Barhydt of ABRA, about bitcoin bull run, financial institutions, public companies, and Latin America

Blockchain Summit Latam Podcast

👋 Bienvenidos al episodio N°42. Episodio especial llevado a cabo en inglés. Understanding the current moment that we are living with bitcoin and the cryptocurrency market is extremely important, but it is also important to compare it with what happened in the last bull run of 2017 and to know the differences between both moments. What has been the turning points that have marked the entry of traditional financial institutions and publicly listed companies to Bitcoin is what we discussed with Bill Barhydt, founder & CEO of Abra, one of the first cryptocurrency applications created globally. Bill is a professional with more than 25 years of experience working in companies such as Goldman Sachs, Netscape, and was part of the CIA and NASA. We also talked about the role that MicroStrategy CEO Michael Saylor has taken in all this growth in Bitcoin as well as what could be the next public company that could be announcing the purchase of Bitcoin for its treasury. I asked him if the Bitcoin market could have been manipulated by the USDT and Bitfinex case, as well as if big whales could move it today. We talked about ABRA and the growth they have had in the last year, where he told me that they already have operations in more than 75 countries and that in Latin America they are implementing pilot programs in Central America for the acquisition of cryptocurrencies with paper money in convenience stores through ABRA. Finally, I asked him about his vision of the traditional financial system, the CeFi ecosystem, Defi, and what we might be seeing in the next few years.

$50k Bitcoin, What’s Next? With Bill Barhydt

What Bitcoin Did

“It’s like saying I can’t handle the internet in 1995, and there were many people that couldn’t. Do you know what happened? The internet ploughed ahead, and eventually, you caught up… the world is going to catch up to this because there is going to be no alternative.”— Bill BarhydtLocation: RemotelyDate: Thursday 18th FebCompany: AbraRole: Founder & CEOIn the last week, bitcoin broke $50,000 for the first time, a significant milestone, helped by corporate adoption. Tesla’s $1.5bn bitcoin buy was a watershed moment. Still, it would likely not have happened without MicroStrategy, who themselves announced this week that they would be raising another $900 million to acquire more bitcoin.Using Bitcoin as a corporate treasury asset is only expected to grow, with some bitcoiners suggesting that as many as half the S&P500 will hold bitcoin in their balance sheet before the end of 2021.The next logical step after corporate adoption of Bitcoin is the nation-state. With India looking to ban Bitcoin, it is clear there is still a large amount of scepticism from nation-states. However, the first country to embrace Bitcoin will likely see the same benefits as MicroStrategy did.In this interview, I talk to Bill Barhydt, the CEO and Founder of Abra. We discuss what $50k bitcoin means, increasing corporate adoption and which nation-state will be the first to embrace Bitcoin.This episode’s sponsors:Kraken - The best place to buy, sell & trade BitcoinBlockFi - The future of Bitcoin financial services Sportsbet.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 wallet-----WBD312 - 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.
