Alle Wege führen am Ende zu Bitcoin. Das liegt für uns Bitcoiner klar auf der Hand. Wir Menschen leiden jedoch unter Vergesslichkeit, und auch an den Weg der uns teilweise schon vor Jahren zu Bitcoin geführt hat, haben nur wenige noch eine klare Erinnerung. Dadurch ist es manchmal schwer nachzuvollziehen, wie Neulinge Bitcoin sehen. "Einundzwanzig - Der Weg" soll uns dabei helfen uns an unseren eigenen Weg zu erinnern zu können. Eventuell auch dabei etwas Verständnis und vor allem Geduld für Future-Coiner aufzubringen, welche noch einen langen Weg vor sich haben. Hierfür interviewen Fab und Daniel keine langjährig aktiven Bitcoiner, sondern stattdessen Menschen die sich noch auf dem Weg zu Bitcoin befinden und auf Ihrem Weg vor kurzem im "Bitcoin-Only-Modus" angekommen sind.

"The whole tokenize-everything-thing so far is one fast hype train. It is exciting not for the technical efficiencies it may provide but for the exact opposite: rent seekers seeking rent.

What Bitcoin Did
Mining Bitcoin with Nuclear Energy with Ryan MacLeod

“Bitcoin mining can be plugged into the existing nuclear fleet as it and shore up the economics right now, because a lot of the reactors that are being shut down are because they're not economically competitive on a grid that has a large share of wind and solar.”— Ryan MacLeodRyan MacLeod is a Bitcoiner working in the reactor research and safety programs at Canadian Nuclear Labs. In this interview, we discuss the importance and safety of nuclear energy, and how Ryan is trying to orange pill the nuclear industry by showing how Bitcoin aids the economic case. - - - - The growing consensus is that nuclear energy needs to play a critical part in providing society's energy needs. It is both a low-carbon energy source, energy-dense, and (dependent upon operation) reliable. And yet, nuclear only provides 10% of the world's energy needs, down from 18% in 1996. Whilst the IAEA forecasts only a 12% contribution by 2050 in its high-case projection.The issue to date has been the safety concerns regarding nuclear energy. High-profile accidents have clouded the public's perception of the nuclear industry and influenced anti-nuclear policies in numerous countries. The build-out of new nuclear capacity dropped significantly after Chernobyl, an accident that some feared had come close to making half of Europe uninhabitable. The reality is that Chernobyl was an accident unlike any other, which indicated the malaise of a waning superpower, rather than an industry that was inherently dangerous. Since then, reactor technology and the treatment of waste have continued to improve. We are now on the cusp of countries being able to roll out Small Modular Reactors that are cheaper, safer and more scalable than existing designs. It has the potential to revolutionize nuclear power just when we need it.And yet, the economics of nuclear energy are still challenging. High capital costs mean that nuclear facilities need to have a high capacity to make the investment worthwhile. Cheaper energy from solar and wind are adding to the complexity of the issue. There are other uses for nuclear energy that can be monetised, but these have their own specific infrastructure and operational requirements. This is where Bitcoin mining could provide a bridge. It eliminates the concept of surplus baseload generation, bolstering the economic bottom line of both old and new reactors. And it can do this from day one. So, could Bitcoin mining be the catalyst for a renaissance of the nuclear industry? If so, it will be young professionals such as Ryan MacLeod who are helping to lead the change.- - - - This episode's sponsors:Gemini - Buy Bitcoin instantlyLedn - Financial services for Bitcoin hodlersBitcasino - The Future of Gaming is herePacific Bitcoin - Bitcoin‑only event, Nov 10 & 11, 2022Ledger - State of the art Bitcoin hardware walletWasabi Wallet - Privacy by defaultTexas Blockchain Summit - Nov 17-18, 2022 | Austin, TexasBCB Group - Global digital financial Services-----WBD557 - 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.

"This brings us to our fourth principle behind PoS, which is that **PoS relies on subjective truth**. There is simply no objective way to pick between two competing blockchains, and any new nodes to the network must ultimately trust some existing source of truth to resolve any ambiguity. This contrasts significantly with Bitcoin, where the “true” chain is always the one with the most work. It doesn't matter if a thousand nodes are telling you chain X, if a single node broadcasts chain Y and it contains more work, then Y is the correct blockchain. A block's header can prove its own worth, completely removing the need for trust." - Scott Sullivan With "The Merge" on everyone's mind, going through the specific mechanisms that make Proof of Stake "work" can be a very useful exercise. Especially when considering how things can go wrong, and where there is ultimately subjectivity in the consensus mechanism that sheds light on how certain disputes would fall in the politically tumultuous world we live in today. It isn't just that PoS is different than PoW, it's that many of their core principles are polar opposites of each other, and therefore they cannot accomplish the same goal. This piece by first time author on the show, Scott Sullivan, is an excellent breakdown of the inner workings of the ETH Proof-of-stake design, and will provide a solid foundation for the discussion of why I am Bitocin only in tomorrow's Guy's Take.

“Lightning opens up interesting things, if you're a programmer in a country, you can now get international payments directly from them without going through their country's banking system. It's basically peer-to-peer finance. And then they have a unit that is hard, that is harder than their local currency….basically it connects global labour, global work, global productivity in a way that didn't exist before.”— Lyn AldenLyn Alden is a macroeconomist and investment strategist. In this interview, we discuss her latest paper on the Lightning Network (LN). We focus on the importance of Bitcoin's base layer, how LN compares to Visa and Mastercard, and how LN is connecting the world in new and revolutionary ways. - - - - To understand the Lightning Network, you need to go back and understand money: what attributes does it need to have, and what are the best means of facilitating these attributes? Bitcoiners believe it to be the latest evolution in money. It has the best combination of features of any previous version of money: it is hard, auditable, portable, uncensorable, immutable, fungible, trustless and decentralised. Yet, Bitcoin's Achilles' heel, and the question that plagued its first decade, was how it could scale to become an effective medium of exchange. The capacity of the Bitcoin network is purposefully limited to ensure that the network can remain as decentralised as possible. For Bitcoin to operate as a medium of exchange, a transactional layer needed to be built on top of the network.This is the Lightning Network. It's designed to provide an instant and cheap payment system connecting the world.- - - - This episode's sponsors:Gemini - Buy Bitcoin instantlyLedn - Financial services for Bitcoin hodlersBitcasino - The Future of Gaming is herePacific Bitcoin - Bitcoin‑only event, Nov 10 & 11, 2022Ledger - State of the art Bitcoin hardware walletWasabi Wallet - Privacy by defaultTexas Blockchain Summit - Nov 17-18, 2022 | Austin, TexasBCB Group - Global digital financial Services-----WBD549 - 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.

"Many aspects of the Bitcoin mining industry are poorly understood and often misrepresented. But one practice in this sector stands apart for the misunderstandings and under-appreciation that surround it: intermittent mining." - Zack Voell One of the most under appreciated aspects of Bitcoin mining is its ability to be interrupted. As a buyer of last resort for energy that is curtailed or produced when it can't be consumed, and also able to turn off without losing its purchaser (i.e. the Bitcoin network), Bitcoin mining becomes a tool to arbitrage production times and smooth energy demand across the peaks and troughs around both production and consumption.

"A study of the hill tribes of Southeast Asia titled “The Art Of Not Being Governed” provided a fresh take. The author, James C. Scott, posits that the hill tribes were not “left behind” by the valley states but instead composed of refugees from the negative consequences of state-making down in the valleys: bondage, tribute, slavery, war epidemics and more. The rough terrain in the hills served as a natural impediment to absorption by the state." - Captain Sidd Today's article brings a unique perspective on history that sheds light on what is happening today. By showing how physical terrain kept the power of the state in check for thousands of years, Captain Sidd expands on the analogy to propose a technology today, that creates that same resistance to state power, in the digital space.

"The answer that matters depends on the context. The context you need to have is that cryptocurrency, i.e. Bitcoin, was invented/discovered initially to allow a money by the people that cannot be shut down by government. In that context, the most important element to be decentralized is the network of Nodes. -- If the nodes are not decentralized, nothing else decentralized matters. -- If the nodes are decentralized, then the other things kind of matter, but not as much." - Arman the Parman Today we hit a short, but important piece from the Bitcoin Reserve blog that breaks down the context of decentralization, which is what truly matters. There are all types of things we can arbitrarily decentralize, elements of the network, codebase, implementations, etc. But all of these things are secondary to the most critical decentralization, the one that matters, and the one that represents a once-in-a-millenia innovation that will change everything. Without that critical pillar, the decentralization of literally everything else is irrelevant... listen to find out.

"Back when the iPhone was introduced in 2007, few people thought, “wow this could really disrupt the taxi industry a decade from now.” A few technologies had converged by that the point to where everyday people could have a pocket supercomputer with a big touchscreen and a high-bandwidth mobile internet connection, and this served as a set of building blocks that could exponentially eat into many other industries, including allowing Uber to come along and change how we move across cities. All manner of individual hardware electronic devices became mostly-obsolete as they became applications on a smart phone. I view the Bitcoin/Lightning stack as being similar. The network is still tiny and has a lot of development work still to do, and nothing is for certain. But to me it looks like a powerful monetary network with a ton of upside potential over the next decade." - Lyn Alden We are diving into the third and final part of "A Look at the Lightning Network" by Lyn Alden. This will round out a lot of what the future of lightning may hold, how it is being developed and its process of growth, and answering some of the both valid and the deeply misguided criticisms of the network. Most of which that come from the crypto space, where so many projects' very reason for existence depends on Lightning Network not working. We get into all of it, in Part 3. If you haven't yet go back and listen to Part 1 and 2, or you are going to be lost, I warned you. Otherwise, enjoy!

"But more broadly, one must ask, “at what point would someone want to permanently exchange their self-custodial scarce money (bitcoin) that has a 1.8% annual supply inflation rate that is exponentially shrinking, for a soft money (fiat currency) that typically has a 7% annual supply inflation rate or higher?” The answer for many people, is never, as long as the Bitcoin network is still working." - Lyn Alden What is up we are digging into Part 2 of Lyn Alden's amazing piece "A Look at the Lightning Network" - and we have a rather ridiculous Guy's Take after this to cover the rest of the groundwork laid in Part 1 that I didn't get to cover, a lengthy tangent about proof of stake and the total meaningful loss of anything considered independence or decentralization of ETH 2.0 before the merge even happened (that I hadn't actually intended to get into, but you'll get it anyway), and of course, Lyn's amazing breakdown of the trade-offs, the philosophical reasons & practical reasons for layered engineering, and how Lightning is fulfilling the promises of P2P electronic cash.

Fractional Reserve, Base Money & Bitcoin with Matthew Mežinskis

“Credit needs no money; it needs no barter, it needs no commodity, it needs no intermediary, credit actually needs nothing and it can work… and that is actually the thing that has allowed civil civilization to grow well in excess of money.”— Matthew MežinskisMatthew Mežinskis is the creator of the Crypto Voices podcast and Porkopolis Economics website. In this interview, we discuss the definition of money, the importance of credit and fractional reserve banking, and how “not your keys, not your coins” equally applies to bank deposits. - - - - WBD528, “Everything You Know About the Economy is Wrong with Jeff Snider”, was one of our most discussed shows of recent months. Jeff presented a number of challenging and yet fascinating ideas, that have now spurred a second interview responding to some of the issues raised.A principle issue was Jeff's assertion that the system lacks understanding and control. When asked whether he could define money Jeff replied “No, I actually don't. That's I think that's the general problem. Even the Federal Reserve or central banks, economists, they can't define money either.”Matthew Mežinskis respectfully disagrees: he thinks that there are tried and tested specific definitions that make money comprehensible to all. Matthew promotes the idea that money is chiefly a medium of exchange, and that there are two distinct types of money: base money that confers ownership, and fiduciary money which is a claim for ownership. Further, Matthew is of the opinion that, whilst criticism of the Fed is valid, it isn't the ignorant and inefficient organisation some portray it to be. From this cascades a series of additional opinions that are at odds with the mainstream narrative within Bitcoin circles: credit is a natural means of human interaction, that has enabled civilisations to flourish; whilst fractional reserve banking is a necessary part of capital allocation within the economy, and cash use continues to be vibrant.And yet, in line with the truism that Bitcoiners are a broad church, Matthew is a strong advocate for Bitcoin. He sees that it promises real improvement to the current economic system. He just sees it through a different lens.
