89. Disrupting the global payments industry with Jack Mallers

The Bitcoin Standard Podcast

In this episode Saifedean talks to Jack Mallers, CEO of Strike, about how the Lightning Network is disrupting the global payments industry. Jack explains how international remittances work, why they are so costly and why the industry cannot compete with Lightning-based solutions. He and Saifedean then discuss how bitcoin is helping El Salvadorians transition from using cash to using bitcoin, whilst bypassing commercial banks. They also cover Jack’s role in helping to introduce Lightning tips to Twitter and Strike’s new “Pay Me in Bitcoin” application. In the Q&A, Jack takes questions on Strike’s expansion into Europe, who he would most like to “orange pill”, and which countries are likely to make bitcoin legal tender next. THE BITCOIN STANDARD TOOLKIT The Bitcoin Standard Toolkit is a selection of the Bitcoin services I recommend to readers and learners on saifedean.com, as they upgrade from The Fiat Standard to The Bitcoin Standard. NYDIG NYDIG is a leading full-service financial services firm dedicated to Bitcoin, applying institutional wisdom and ingenuity to help clients access the unrealized potential of this emerging asset class. NYDIG offers the full suite of financial solutions needed for financial institutions to access Bitcoin, from custody, execution, financing, treasury solutions, integration partnerships, and more. Check their website here: https://nydig.com/ ================== Cyphersafe To secure your bitcoins, it is important to keep your seedphrase backed up safely, and for that, I highly recommend using the CypherWheel seed storage device, a gorgeous and brilliant sturdy piece of low time preference engineering from a fourth-generation machine shop in Maine. Check their website here: https://cyphersafe.io/ ================== OKCoin Whenever someone asks me how to invest in Bitcoin, my advice is to accumulate bitcoins periodically for the long run, or dollar-cost averaging. When you buy every day, week, or month, you play bitcoin’s volatility to your advantage. In the long run, this strategy will outperform every other bitcoin investment strategy, except for dumb luck, and lying about timing the market. For dollar-cost averaging, I strongly recommend OKCoin, the exchange with the lowest fees for recurring purchases worldwide. OKCoin is also the bitcoin exchange accessible in the most countries around the world. Check their website here: https://okcoin.com/ ================== Nodl I believe it is really important to run a node, but I don’t recommend running it on your work or personal computer, as it can compromise the performance of your computer and, more importantly, the security and privacy of your bitcoin node. A far better solution is to buy a dedicated hardware node, and for that, I highly recommend Nodl. Check their website here: https://www.nodl.it/ ================== Coldcard My hardware wallet of choice is the Coldcard. I strongly recommend only conducing bitcoin trades on computers that are dedicated to bitcoin and cannot connect to the internet. I like the Coldcard because it is a contained machine optimized for bitcoin and bitcoin only. Coldcard is basically a small computer that can only do bitcoin, which makes securing it more straight-forward. Use the code BITCOINSTANDARD on coldcardwallet.com to get a 5% discount.  Check their website here: https://coldcardwallet.com/ ================== CoinBits App CoinBits rounds up your everyday credit card purchases to the nearest dollar and invests the extra cents. 95% of your Bitcoin is stored offline for your safety. By making micro-investments over time you can use one of the most successful investment strategies known to mitigate the risk of loss called dollar-cost averaging.

“Sometimes all it takes to change the world is just care enough. That’s how I think about the bitcoin community, we wear hoodies, we’re weird, we’re nerdy, we don’t have girlfriends, all of the memes. But, you know what you can’t say is that these guys don’t fucking care. We care a lot.”— Jack MallersLocation: El SalvadorDate: Saturday May 8thCompany: Strike, Ed Carpenter RacingRole: CEO, OwnerEd Carpenter lives life at over 373 km/h. He’s worked his whole life for his dream of racing in the Indy 500. And now, with 18 Indy races under his belt, the finish line is within his sights. But Indy racing requires millions per year in funding, and the way people consume entertainment is changing.Ed’s team needed to do something different, and a dose of orange pills gave them an idea. A cold email to Jack Mallers may just have changed the game forever.

Jack Mallers vs The World

What Bitcoin Did

“We have banked the unbanked. We have given them free and instant international money transfers, we have provided them financial services that have had gatekeepers for hundreds of years.”— Jack MallersLocation: RemotelyDate: Tuesday 5th JanuaryCompany: ZapRole: CEOThis week Jack Mallers announced the launch of Strike Global, a Bitcoin neobank that uses the Bitcoin network and lightning to facilitate the sending of money anywhere in the world, in a matter of seconds, for free.The speed and cost of payments have often been a topic of debate in Bitcoin. While the basechain is necessarily slow, the Lightning Network promises to provide instant and low-cost bitcoin transfers. With Strike, Jack Mallers is taking this to the next level allowing users to settle in fiat currencies across the Bitcoin network. Fast and no cost transfers of fiat currencies solve problems across the world, especially in third-world countries. Strike aims to run a pilot in El Salvador to prove this. Strike has also enabled Caroline Panthers Offensive Tackle; Russell Okung to become the first NFL player to be paid in bitcoin, half of his $13 million salary.In this interview, I talk to Zap CEO Jack Mallers. We discuss the newly launched Strike Global, revolutionising global payments, neobanking with Bitcoin and helping to bank the unbanked in 3rd world countries.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.-----WBD296 - 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.
