Show 45: Saifedean Ammous - The Bitcoin Standard

Show support appreciated: 35iDYDYqRdN2x6KGcpdV2W1Hy3AjGje9oL Matthew & Fernando interview Saifedean Ammous, economics professor and author of the new book, The Bitcoin Standard.We discuss Saif's background and why he decided to write "the book we all wanted to have written" covering Bitcoin, banking, and economics. Saif explains the importance of Bitcoin's supply schedule and the difficulty adjustment; the anatomy of monetary demand versus monetary supply; the proper comparison of Bitcoin to the current international payment system (as opposed to purchasing coffee on-chain); and a Bitcoin standard. We discuss the competitive landscape of mining and centralization risks. Also, what does it really mean to say Bitcoin is a medium of exchange? Saif gives his view on Dr. Selgin and White's position on fiduciary media, and concludes on what it might actually look like if Bitcoin "fails" in the banking world.Links for more info:https://twitter.com/saifedean http://saifedean.com/ https://thesaifhouse.wordpress.com/ https://thesaifhouse.wordpress.com/book/Hosts: Matthew Mežinskis, Fernando UlrichMusic: New Friend Music newfriendmusic.com/Site: cryptovoices.com/Podcast & InformationCryptoeconomics & LibertyThanks for listening!Show content is not investment advice in any way.

We explore some of his prior writings, and get his latest perspectives on difficult topics (in the world of Bitcoin) such as roadmaps, scaling, technical upgrades, and consensus.

We discuss some economic and risk-topics surrounding Bitcoin and other cryptoassets (such as ICOs).

The 2nd annual celebration is coming up on 3 January 2020.Trace covers from A to Z on what Proof of Keys is all about, how to partake in the initiative, best practices, and his personal recommendations in climbing the mountaintop to monetary sovereignty.

Show support appreciated: 35iDYDYqRdN2x6KGcpdV2W1Hy3AjGje9oL Matthew & Fernando interview Patrick Byrne, founder & CEO of Overstock.Fascinating discussion with a busy executive, we are grateful for the time Patrick spent with us covering everything they are doing at Overstock with blockchain technology. We begin with Patrick's background, moving from philosophy to Wall Street. We discuss the complexities of running a publicly traded company, and the many dealings (and battles) Patrick has had with the SEC. He overviews their TZero platform, how they plan to disintermediate the broker-dealer business, and in general cut the inefficiencies and lack of transparency plaguing modern finance. We move on to his work with Hernando de Soto, an important Peruvian economist who has done monumental work on the history of property rights. He, Patrick, and the team at Medici Ventures are (among others) investing in the lofty goal of bringing a true property rights system to the developing (and developed!) world through the blockchain. This could offer those in desparate environments a fighting economic chance at establishing their title and property, potentially opening up access to credit and other entrepreneurial tools. We conclude with another great free-market economist last-named de Soto, Spanish economist Jesús Huerta de Soto, who Fernando studied Austrian Economics under, and whom Patrick would like to meet!Links for more info:https://twitter.com/OverstockCEO https://www.overstock.com/ http://www.mediciventures.com/ https://www.tzero.com/ https://youtu.be/JlnbDdPsY58Hernando de Soto: http://www.nytimes.com/books/first/d/desoto-capital.htmlJesús Huerta de Soto: https://www.mises.org/library/money-bank-credit-and-economic-cyclesShow sponsor: https://hodlhodl.com/Hosts: Matthew Mežinskis, Fernando UlrichMusic: New Friend Music newfriendmusic.com/Site: cryptovoices.com/Podcast & InformationCryptoeconomics & LibertyThanks for listening!Show content is not investment advice in any way.

We discuss Bitcoin in 2018 and beyond.We start with Nic's bearish (correct) call back in March, as well as social media reactions to his kidney joke if the price hits $4,000. Nic reflects on the correct theoretical positions from the Bitcoin Core side 3-4 years ago, as the layered approach is now working and adopted more and more each day. We ask if the legacy systems of Visa, Mastercard, Fedwire, etc. are correct comparisons to Bitcoin's system. Nic comments on Ethereum, Ripple, and EOS in this context as well. Nic continues on Bitcoin's "full stack" approach as a currency and payment system that's self-sovereign, and speaks to other projects' trade-offs in this regard. He speaks to proof-of-work and its tendency to consolidate on the dominant chain. We discuss other great articles that Nic has written, such as Bitcoin's ontology and its identity as a currency/payment provider/social consensus system. Nic discusses the pros and cons of alternative implementations on Bitcoin. We take a look at the monetary policy of Bitcoin. Is it really inflationary? Is it more like authorized and issued corporate stock, where the totals are generally known? Will bitcoin ever become a unit of account under such a system? Will bitcoin ever become a global settlement asset among major institutions? What about Bitcoin's security model?
