Today's guest on the show is @DaveBurner10 - or is it?

This pleb wants to share his real identity and connect professionally with more people in the space as he tries to figure out a way to give back to the #bitcoin community!

Join Dave and I as we discover what lead him to the mouth of the rabbit hole and how #Bitcoin has opened his eyes to what is wrong with so much of our financial system.

How did a sudden loss of a close friend help shape Dave's thinking and what makes him feel that #bitcoin is hope?

Is there a way Dave can match his skill set to ongoing or yet to launch #bitcoin projects and help drive a #bitcoin message to as many people as he possibly can?

Bitcoiner Book Club Explores Jordan Peterson's 'Maps of Meaning'
Maps of Meaning is Jordan Peterson's first book, written in the late 90's, and largely unknown to much of his following.  Nevertheless, it is an extremely profound book, dealing with the most fundamental of questions regarding the structure of reality, and how humans have attempted to comprehend it, and figure out how best to navigate it.   The book also had a profound impression on some other bitcoiners, so we decided to get together and explore it together.   It's a pretty ambititous endeavour to try to tackle this thing, and this is by no means meant to be an exhaustive analysis. I highly recommend you read the book.   Enjoy!   --   TWITTER:  Richard: https://twitter.com/rjames_BTC Robert: https://twitter.com/Breedlove22 Gigi: https://twitter.com/dergigi  Link to Book: https://www.amazon.com/Jordan-B-Peterson-Architecture-Softcover/dp/B084CTSZCH/ref=sr_1_1?dchild=1&keywords=maps+of+meaning&qid=1614369592&sr=8-1 More from me:        TWITTER: http://bit.ly/2P7PUjA         YOUTUBE: https://bit.ly/3aBbZxg         MEDIUM: http://bit.ly/2Zk0Dex         INSTAGRAM: http://bit.ly/30r7IqY             If you’re in Canada, and looking to buy bitcoin, Shakepay is an excellent option.

Tether, Powell Testimony and Bitcoin Hegemony - FED 42

Bitcoin’s price action has been quite volatile, but bitcoiners are used to that. After breaking out of January’s consolidation it rose 50% to threaten the round $60,000 level before pulling back and consolidating. There is some apprehension about this pull back, because many people were ready for price to go up and never come down again. Of course, there will be periods of gains followed by times of consolidation. Nothing to get concerned with at this point. Tether also had some very bullish news this week on Tuesday morning when it was announced that they settled with the NY Attorney General to pay an $18 million fine. But what exactly they are paying the fine for must be implied. Despite claims by the NYAG of wrongdoing, no convincing evidence was produced to justify pursuing the case further. This new appears to be quite bullish for the bitcoin industry as Tether provides a significant portion of liquidity on the fiat side of trades. Next the co-hosts breakdown some of Chairman Powell’s testimony given to the Senate on Tuesday. At the time of recording, the proceedings were just ending and the tweets about Powell’s bitcoin and “digital dollar” comments were already starting to fly. Ultimately, there was nothing new on this front from the Fed’s chief, he reiterated previous comments using very similar rhetoric, with the sole exception of adding that a digital dollar was a “high priority.” The basic position of the Fed on a digital dollar remains cautious. They are working with partners like the University of Texas and MIT on research initiatives but they take their role as provider of the reserve currency very seriously. They will not move quickly on a digital dollar. As comparison, the ECB is on the forefront of this movement for different reasons, but even they are admittedly still 4 years away. If there is to be a digital dollar, separate from the market provided digital dollars already very successful like Tether, it will be at least 5-8 years away. Powell also spoke on inflation. Much information can be gathered by a careful listening to his word choices. He says we may see prices picking up as the economy reopens. But that is not a strong statement, it is one made from a academic framework, not real world data. He also says the Fed has the tools to keep inflation under control. But no mention of tools to keep deflation under control, which is the primary atmosphere we are dealing with at this time. Lastly, in regards to recent rises in longer term Treasury rates Powell said rates are moving up because of expectations of economic recovery. This is a subtle but important point that Ansel emphasizes, Powell is not saying rates are moving up because of actual recovery, only the expectation of recovery. And what happens when those expectations turn negative? This wide ranging podcast episode ends with a foray into how bitcoin fits into the world of macroeconomics and even geopolitics going forward. We are aware that bitcoin is making an entrance onto the broad international monetary scene, but what will that look like later this year and going forward? Where does bitcoin fit?

Bloomberg's ETF whisperer says the SEC could approve a BTC ETF
Regulators in Canada approved two bitcoin exchange-traded funds (ETFs) in recent days, marking the first approvals of their kind for North America. Since launch, the products have seen considerable inflows. With the demand for a bitcoin ETF now proven, many wonder what a Canadian approval could mean for a U.S. offering.  The Scoop spoke with Eric Balchunas, a senior ETF analyst at Bloomberg, about what an approved bitcoin ETF means for the landscape. During this week's episode Balchunas broke down the winding road to approval and why Canada was always likely to be a first. Now that Canada has its BTC ETFs, he argued that an approval from the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) is just around the corner. "I think it's just a matter of the SEC coming around, and then once they come around mentally, I imagine it will happen pretty quickly," he said. "But again, I'm not in that bubble. I'm not a regulatory analyst. That's just my sense from talking to people." How Canada has historically been a proving ground for novel financial products. The differences and similarities in the Canadian and U.S. approval processes. Why Balchunas thinks 2021 will be the year of a U.S. BTC ETF approval. Why it's only a matter of time before a meme ETF launches.

Motion: Ethereum is too early for institutional money (Lyn Alden vs. Qiao Wang)
Guests: *Lyn Alden (**twitter.com/lynaldencontact**)* *Qiao Wang (**twitter.com/qwqiao**)* Host: *Richard Yan (**twitter.com/gentso09**) * Today’s motion is “Ethereum is too early for institutional money.” Quite a few institutions have voted with their feet on Bitcoin. This ranges from corporate treasuries to money managers. At what point will Ethereum catch the attention of non-crypto native capital allocators? Our debaters today are Lyn Alden and Qiao Wang, both well known in crypto circles. Lyn wrote a well-researched article arguing that from an institutional perspective, Ethereum feels like an unfinished product and isn’t likely to pick up significant interest in the short run. Qiao has been looking at Ethereum as an investment in its early days, and it’s fair to say he has been a perma-bull.  If you’re into crypto and like to hear two sides of the story, be sure to also check out our previous episodes. We’ve featured some of the best known thinkers in the crypto space. By the way, we're planning episodes on CBDC, centralized lending versus de-centralized lending, the fad of NFT or non-fungible tokens, whether Bitcoin is good for America and whether Bitcoin is good for the environment. So if you're interested or know someone that would be interested in debating, please feel free to DM me at @blockdebate on Twitter.  Please note that nothing in our podcast should be construed as financial advice. Source of select items discussed in the debate (and supplemental material): * Lyn's investment strategy website: https://lynalden.com * DeFi alliance: https://defialliance.co/ * Grayscale ETHE trust: https://grayscale.co/ethereum-trust/ * John Pfeffer paper on crypto value accrual: https://medium.com/john-pfeffer/an-institutional-investors-take-on-cryptoassets-690421158904 Guest bios: Lyn Alden runs an investment research service for both retail and institutional investors at LynAlden.com. Her focus is on fundamental investing with a global macro overlay, with a specialization in currency differentials and equity valuations. She also manages financial operation of an aviation simulation research facility. Qiao Wang is a macro and crypto investor. He is one of the founders for DeFi Alliance, an accelerator for decentralized finance projects. Previously, Qiao Wang helped build Messari, a startup aiming to create Bloomberg for the crypto markets. Prior to that, Qiao was a quantitative trader. He ran R&D teams and helped build two trading businesses at IMC and Tower Research.
