Read_696 - Currencies Today are "IOU Nothings" [John Exter]
"Today no money in the world fully performs all three services. National currencies are being used as means-of-payment and standard-of-value money, b u t none in this inflationary age is an assured store-of-value money. In fact, a foremost concern to voters and politicians everywhere is that so many currencies are so rapidly losing their value in terms of commodities and services. Commodities like gold and silver, which are being used as store-of-value money, are not being used as either means-of-payment or standard-of-value money. Thus the world we have so long known, in which most currencies were redeemable at a fixed price in a store-of-value money like gold, is in disarray." - John Exter, at AIER Today we take a trip into the past, back to 1972 for an image of what happened to money so we can rid ourselves of our normalcy bias and see our current monetary age for what it truly is: a volatile, failed experiment in baseless, politically manipulated currency that is stepping into its endgame. And also to see Bitcoin for what it truly is: the first money to be both digital and have the fully necessary characteristics to serve all major functions of a sound and global monetary good as we have had in over a century.

Basics_01 - Bitcoin... What is it?
Sure, everyone tells me that bitcoin is a new technology. That it's magic money for the internet and tokens you can buy and stick in an app that will probably be worth more later. But seriously... what the hell does all of that mean? I get that Bitcoin is a thing, but 'What is it?' Well let's get into it, with the first episode of Bitcoin Basics.

Read_695 - Central Banks are Inflation Creators, Not Inflation Fighters [Josh Hendrikson]
"All of this is important because there has been a resurrection of Burns-type positions in the current debate about the cause of higher inflation rates. Senator Elizabeth Warren blames the rising inflation on greedy corporations raising their prices. Others have blamed rising prices on the greater prevalence of monopolies. Antitrust is apparently an anti-inflation tool. Make no mistake, these ideas are wrong. A belief that greed is responsible for inflation requires a belief that firms waited 40 years to collectively and simultaneously raise prices—an amazing level of planning and discipline." - Joshua Hendrikson ITs important to have context and break through the noise when it comes to the inflation debate. As it becomes a dominant talking point in politics, media, and on Twitter, it's important to be able to identify and understand the principles being argued about, because almost everyone will be arguing form a set of premises that simply aren't true.

Read_694 - Locked Out of My Digital Life [edent]
"Last night, lightning struck our house and burned it down. I escaped wearing only my nightclothes. In an instant, everything was vaporised. Laptop? Cinders. Phone? Ashes. Home server? A smouldering wreck. Yubikey? A charred chunk of gristle. This presents something of a problem." – Edent Today we read a story told from the perspective of someone who's entire life changed by the strike of lightning, and suddenly they were locked out of everything. A great short read to start thinking about the failure modes of our security setup, and which definitely got me to reconsider a couple of elements of my own system.

Read_693 - Lightning & The Airport Analogy [Danny Scott]
"But as with all new technology, it can be incredibly hard to explain what’s actually happening, without getting too complex. This got me thinking about Bitcoin education and how to ELI5 (Explain Like I’m 5) with Bitcoin Lightning, enter… Bitcoin Lightning: The Airport Analogy" - Danny Scott Today we hit a short piece but a really great analogy in order to make sense of the lightning network. Since I've recently had a few people ask me about this and a fellow audionaut made a great suggestion for a short article, I thought this would be good to hit especially in the spirit of trying to get back to covering some of the fundamentals of Bitcoin and how it and many of the tools around it work, in simple, digestible explanations.

Guy's Take #63 - Anatomy of a Scam, The IMF and World Bank Empire
Today we break into the racket that is the IMF and World Bank monetary imperialism. Piggy backing off Gladstein's remarkable piece detailing the horrific consequences of this system and the clear intent and disregard for human life and basic freedoms, we discuss the fundamental principles of sound money that would be a basis to prevent this, how the fiat system gets around this balancing forces and corrupts the incentives, and how Bitcoin and a global neutral standard may finally bring about its end.

Read_692 - A Quick & Dirty Explanation [DerGigi]
"Bitcoin is paradoxical. It is simple yet complicated, ever-changing yet unchangeable. A novel machine without any novel parts; a technological innovation that isn't really about technology. You can't touch it, yet it is hard money. You can't see it, yet it will show you a vision of the future. You can't possess it, yet thousands of people seem to be possessed by it." - Dergigi In the spirit of getting back to some of the basics, I want to open up a series of hitting basic concepts around bitcoin and how to use and interact with its network and many moving pieces with the opening chapter of Dergigi's forthcoming book, 21 Ways.

Read_691 - A Native Protocol for Social Media [Jack Dorsey]
The problem today is that we have companies who own both the protocol and discovery of content. Which ultimately puts one person in charge of what’s available and seen, or not. This is by definition a single point of failure, no matter how great the person, and over time will fracture the public conversation, and may lead to more control by governments and corporations around the world." - Jack Dorsey Jack Dorsey makes the case for a native social media protocol in this short, but important piece reflecting on the failures of Twitter, and the potential hope for fixing its problems indefinitely into the future. One of the most important issues today, sparking a long Guy's Take in this episode on what I think lies ahead of us, and what I hope I can contribute to the cause in this coming year.

Reboot - The Use of Knowledge in Society [F.A. Hayek]
Bringing back one of my favorites today that I mention often but we haven't covered in a very long time. This is an essential piece diving into the complexities and profound depth in the market establishment of a price. And why the very notion of the price being "wrong" or fixing it, is self-evidently impossible, as the only information we have to make a comparison, is given to us by emerging prices in the market. Hayek takes us on a journey in this incredible piece that is not to be skipped.

Guy's Take #62 - Dear Peter Zeihan...
How much economic ignorance can you fit into 1 minute and 54 seconds? Well apparently its quite a lot. Peter Zeihan confidently embarrassed himself on Joe Rogan's podcast recently by going on a short rip regarding Bitcoin's negative value and how a reliable, fixed money causes economic disaster but the inflated, debt drowned political currency is more valuable. And how counterfeiters have rightfully earned the wealth they steal, but savers gaining some purchasing power as the economy grows is "unviable." We dive into a short clip of Peter Zeihan and take it apart, piece by ignorant piece, in today's Guy's Take episode. Strap in.

Green Eggs and Ham - Decentralized Finance, the Good, the Bad, & the Ugly
"This is the root of our cultural concern for crypto DeFi. The cultural, and arguably even structural, commitment to financialization is extremely difficult to reconcile with this core purpose of securities. In a sense, none of this is surprising given the foundations of crypto DeFi. If you jump straight to “decentralized securities” without first nailing down decentralized money and peer-to-peer technology, the urge to financialize is obvious, because what other value or utility can you even attempt to provide?" - Allen & Anders Check out the full write up with numerous links and references for digging deeper into the ideas discussed: https://www.uncerto.com/green-eggs-and-ham Don't forget to check out our amazing sponsors: • Dive into the Bitcoin only wallet, the cypherpunk calculator, and a company that has built secure Bitcoin products for nearly a decade.
