"But there is something even more interesting that happens with mining and electricity. Not only does Bitcoin mining add revenue to existing locations of energy production, but it also makes other previously unprofitable energy sources profitable." - Rollo McFloogle A Guest post from both a patron to the show and host of the Rollo & Slappy Show, we dive into a Bitcoin Magazine piece by Rollo McFloogle. Often when you talk about Bitcoin as a future money, people attack back with the claim that it "doesn't work without electricity!" This is obviously true, but exactly how much should this matter to us, and what is the risk to the Bitcoin network really? Maybe they are just an idiot, like Grum... hear all about it in today's article, "Bitcoin Does Not Rely on Utilities."

"And replacing gold is just the start. Bitcoin isn’t just a better gold; because of its programmability, it’s a platform that will host the future of money. It will disintermediate many core functions in finance." - James O'Beirne For those new to Bitcoin, this is a great, short introduction to why the next year could be a massive shift, and why we don't want friends and family to miss it, for not having heard from those in the space. Unsolicited financial advise is always uncomfortable, but saying nothing at all might be even more so. Check out James O'Beirne's excellent piece to friends & family...

Want to hear all of the bullish cases for Bitcoin? Protection for pensions, the fiscal cliff we are speeding toward, capital movement for the wealthy, a safe haven for corporate treasuries, a dominant millennial investment vehicle, & so much more. Bitcoin has so many feedback mechanisms to increase its value, to make it a globally significant asset for every demographic, & potentially to fulfill the role as a new global reserve. All while having a perfectly inelastic supply. The only thing that can adjust, is the price.

"All you can do with Bitcoin once you buy it is sell it, but you need somebody else to buy it from you." - Peter Schiff James Woods shared a tweet with what is, in the end, a generally rational skepticism and common initial impression of Bitcoin. From an article at Fox Business, that based its argument on a few quotes from the king and queen of Bitcoin trolls, Peter Schiff and Nouriel Roubini. "You can't do anything with it but sell it," they claim, "its a huge scam and pump and dump" they added. As a Bitcoiner I would obviously argue this is completely false, but its not easy at first to see why, and it takes a huge amount of history, and close scrutiny to see the bigger picture. That's why in this episode, I hope to answer the article, and maybe shed some light on why its views are wrong. Maybe James will listen to it, maybe not, but hopefully some skeptic out there can find value in hearing answers to very common, but ultimately very wrong views as to what Bitcoin is. Todays episode, I get into all of it, with "Dear James Woods." The tweet and article in question: https://twitter.com/RealJamesWoods/status/1329513077654528002?s=20 As mentioned, a brilliant and extensive series hitting so many of these concepts in far greater detail, by the amazing author Parker Lewis, is the Gradually, Then Suddenly, series.

“Taproot will unlock a new range of possibilities for Bitcoin, improving privacy and expanding smart contract possibilities” The code has been merged, the client is on the way, and it's time for the miners and community to bring this to the next step. Led by the mining pool "Poolin," they and others are reaching out to other major pools to get confirmation on support for the soft fork upgrade, and how they would like to see it activated. With various options, risks, and time horizons, this is the beginning of finding a standard for the client release where taproot is finally brought to the Bitcoin network. Today's read is another great piece from Bitcoin Magazine author Aaron Van Wirdum breaking it all down. Listen to find out.

"It takes two nudges to convert a nocoiner. The vast majority of people got their very first nudge in 2017. These people are now primed for that second nudge, which is coming in roaring." - Eric Wall The new bull market is coming in hot, but it feels very different from previous cycles. What is it exactly? Can we see it in the data? Is this another FOMO, retail speculative buy in? Or is this something bigger? Listen to today's read from the Arcane Research blog of "Eric's November Thoughts" about what the foundations of this bull run are, and why this time, might actually be a little different.

"Bitcoin is more easily verifiable than gold, in terms of being a reserve asset and being used as collateral. It’s more frictionless to transfer than gold, and has a hard-capped supply. And I like gold too; I’ve been long it since 2018, and still am." - Lyn Alden With so many new eyes on Bitcoin, there are a large number of questions that the typical outsider has. Lyn Alden, in this excellent piece, breaks down the major misconceptions around Bitcoin and why she is bullish for 2021.

What does having savings, & the incentives reestablished by sound money, do to a person's *character?* How does it change who we are when we have something that we know is ours, and frees us of dependence on another human being?  With a short read of a Bank Ad from many decades ago  that shows an entirely different view of money and savings, we dig into how money affects us on a different level. Shout out to Marty Bent who I think is responsible for sharing out this ad and therefore my stumbling upon it. A huge thank you to our sponsor for the show, Hexa Wallet!

"The logical construct behind the dissection of today’s evils is actually very simple: money is broken; fix the money, fix the world." - Thibaud Marechal The systemic imbalances of our monetary system are far deeper than most realize. It is the very foundation of our consumerist culture, its the course of our bloated, corrupt financial industry, it props up the impossible size of the advertising giants and surveillance capitalism, it creates a monetary premium on goods that should be valued by their productive capacity or actual use, & it betrays the very people who need money most to be a stable, wealth preserving tool. Fix the Money; Fix the world. Another brilliant article at BitcoinMagazine.com and by returning author Thibaud Marechal on the poisonous consequences of a broken money system.

"If any of these forks had meaningfully gained ground relative to Bitcoin, the critics would have had a point. What’s the point of a monetary network which is undergoing a constant state of fragmentation?" - Nic Carter Another great article from Nic and this one is right in line with the second episode of Shitcoin Insider, also now available for a deep dive into the sad state of Bitcoin forks! They said it would dilute Bitcoin, they claimed it would prove Bitcoin was, in fact, not scarce, but as infinite as any digital database that can be replicated over and over again. But what came of the forks? Did they really dilute the value and core attributes of the Bitocin network? Nic lays it all out in another excellent article at Coindesk.com. Don't miss it! Check out the original to find Nic's other works and numerous great graphics and charts to illustrate his argument: https://www.coindesk.com/bitcoin-trounces-bch-bsv-fork-wannabes The mempool is nearly empty again!

"I believe Bitcoiners have this in common. They recognize that they have undertaken a near-hopeless task. Creating a global, neutral, apolitical settlement medium and standard of value will not happen overnight. We have barely begun the project." - Nic Carter Bitcoin represents a hope for a better future, and the longest time horizon in building a sustainable solution for the generations to come after us. Like the cathedrals that took centuries to build, those who labored placed bricks into the structure and toiled their lives knowing they they may never see the completion of their project, but that they were building something far bigger than themselves, that would last for centuries to come.

We may have just seen the beginnings of central banks entering the Bitcoin game theory. The game is about to get real.

"Individuals can opt-out of their local currency by joining the Bitcoin life raft. Protect purchasing power, rather than go down with the sinking ship that is their state." - Brandon Quittem A fascinating journey through the concept of the Fourth Turning and analysis of the incredible times we live in. More will change in the next decade than in the previous 8 combined. We are entering a time where our old institutions are torn down and built anew. Do we devolve into collectivism and totalitarian rule? Or can we find a way to protect and fan the flames of individual liberty and sustain a prosperous future for the next generation.

"If your local energy cost is effectively zero but you cannot sell your energy anywhere, the existence of a global buyer for energy is a godsend." - Nic Carter What do all the "boiling oceans" alarmist miss about the nature & incentives of Bitcoin's energy consumption?

"money printing only “works” if the majority of people don’t even realize that it is steadily devaluing their earnings and savings. People must be deceived into believing a false ideology about this practice, but that can only work for so long; as we’ve seen throughout history, bad money doesn’t last forever." - Nik Hoffman What determines a good money and a bad money, and what exactly does it mean for a money to have value? A brief journey through the concepts that define a money, and the history that informs how and why money becomes a tool for lies and deception to the ultimate detriment of society. Are we doomed to forever repeat the past, or can Bitcoin solve this problem and close the book on monetary manipulation?  Find out in today's Bitcoin Magazine article from author Nik Hoffman.

"It had a big impact on May, who melded the "Other Plane" with "Galt's Gulch" from Ayn Rand's Atlas Shrugged, which was a safe haven for rational and productive people protected from government coercion and taxation by an invisible shield. Instead of the Colorado mountains, May's cyberspace Galt's Gulch would exist on the internet, with cryptography providing protective cover." - Jim Epstein The argument between the "blockchain technology" and the "Bitcoin anarchists" happens to be a lot older than most know. Whether this is a technology that's outside the system, built to replace it, or one that is supposed to work within the system to make it faster and cheaper, can be traced all the way back to a debate between Eric Salin and crypto-anarchist Timothy C. May. What can the origins of the cypherpunk movement tell us about teh direction of Bitcoin today? Hear this amazing piece from Jim Epstein at Reason Magazine to find out!

"When compared to gold, real estate, stocks, bonds or "fine art" that act as stores of value for many individuals, bitcoin that is held in a multisig wallet is an obvious step-function improvement in many regards." - Marty Bent Reading another short Bent from Marty on multisig and how its fundamentally a powerful tool for Bitcoin that isn't shared with any physical store of value. Guy gets into the concept of "deep" vs "shallow" protection in his take following the piece and how Bitcoin represents an order of magnitude improvement over the security & preservation of value. We should remember to tout multisig with more enthusiasm, its not "just another feature."
