Episode Highlights

The Bitcoin Standard: The Decentralized Alternative to Central Banking: “When a pseudonymous programmer introduced “a new electronic cash system that’s fully peer-to-peer, with no trusted third party” to a small online mailing list in 2008, very few people paid attention. Ten years later, and against all odds, this upstart autonomous decentralized software offers an unstoppable and globally accessible hard money alternative to modern central banks. The BitcoinStandard analyzes the historical context to the rise of Bitcoin, the economic properties that have allowed it to grow quickly, and its likely economic, political, and social implications.” (Amazon)

‘Bitcoin Is Dead’ Google Searches Register 12-Month Peak – Is Bitcoin Really ‘Dead?’ : “Moreover, the obituaries list posted on 99bitcoins.com suggests that bitcoin recorded its 15th death of the year. Peter Schiff, a gold enthusiast and economist, wrote the obituary via Twitter. Meanwhile, Bitcoin has once again reclaimed the $20,000 level, sparking speculation of a gradual recovery.” (Bitcoinist)
