Read_499 - The Bitcoin Black Hole Effect [William Clemente]
"If the US Dollar really was to reach an uncontrollable level of inflation, a last move by the Fed may be to do this same trade on a Federal level by printing dollars to acquire Bitcoins to stack on their balance sheet. Only time will tell." - William Clemente III Today we read an excellent piece from bitrawr.com by William Clemente on the various feedback loops that could lead not only to the qualitative loss of trust in the fiat system, but a quantitative pull to earn a near risk-free position in the Bitcoin collateralized lending markets. Edited in part by Preston Pysh who has discussed this idea in greater depth, what happens when multiple feedback loops within the Bitcoin markets converge to make it an increasingly liquid, low risk, high yield asset? It creates a Bitcoin Black Hole.

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.

Techemy Capital launches DeFi ETP on Balancer
Techemy Capital has launched Decentralized Exchange-Traded Portfolios (ETPs) on Balancer, starting with a DeFi ETP. We’re joined by Techemy Capital CEO Fran Strajnar, and Balancer CEO Fernando Martinelli who discuss why these ETPs are a potential game-changer, how to invest, and what this means for DeFi. Guests: Fran Strajnar and Fernando Martinelli Why you should listen: “Digital asset investors and traders are seeking more advanced ways to gain exposure to popular DeFi assets,” says Fran Strajnar, CEO at Techemy Capital. “BNC’s DeFi Index and ETP provides this, all with industry-leading security, transparency, and speed. Rather than having to pick one DeFi winner and hope for the best, investors can now get exposure to the success of the entire sector.” Fernando says it is validating to see funds such as Techemy Capital be early adopters of Balancer. "We're about to launch Balancer V2 which will bring massive gains in cost efficiency for gas fees. It's an exciting time for crypto and for DeFi and brilliant to see Techemy Capital provide a use case for Balancer that we foresaw from day one.” Key takeaway: The DeFi ETP is a physical representation of Brave New Coin’s Blue-Chip DeFi Index ( a portfolio of 8 key assets). The DeFi ETP gives traders non-synthetic exposure to assets in the BNC DeFi Blue-Chip Index: Yearn Finance ($YFI), Compound Finance ($COMP), Aave Protocol ($AAVE), MakerDAO ($MKR), Synthetix ($SNX), Uniswap ($UNI), SushiSwap ($SUSHI) and Uma Project ($UMA). Issued on Balancer Protocol, the new DeFi ETP mimics the constitution and weights of the BNC Blue-Chip DeFi Index. It is rebalanced in alignment with the index, providing traders an opportunity to get non-synthetic exposure to the assets that make up the index, and/or to speculate or arbitrage between the price parity of the index-powered perpetual swaps [offered by third parties such as BTSE] and the spot market for the ETP. The DeFi ETP is non-custodial, transparent, on-chain, wholly collateralized, highly liquid, and instantly redeemable.

Ep 34 - The Revolutionary Phenotype & Emergence of Life on Earth with Jean-François Gariépy (JFG).
Ep 34 of Wake Up is probably the most educational I've done to date, at least in relation to biological evolution, how humanity came to be, and where it may be headed if we're not careful.  Jean-François Gariépy, YouTuber, biologist and author of the revolutionary phenotype joins me to discuss his new book, alongside the biological evolution of humanity and life on earth. We look at his elegant theory of how DNA has become the dominant life form on earth, and his extremely sound challenge to Dawkin's and others claims that Memes are actually a "real" replicator life form. We also discuss: - Quantum Darwinism and how that may be the base state - What a Zombie apocalypse would look like, and why it would fail. There was soooo much more in here too, including: Definitions of: - Phenotype VS replicator - General VS revolutionary phenotypes - Genes - Memes - Tremes - Qenes - Cremes Why Not all Qenes are made equal Problems for revolutionary phenotypes - Forgetfulness - Naked Warrior Problem - Trickster printer & fool replicators How 1 & 2 are Both solved with the Replicator Tango, and if a draw emerges in #3, then it leads to problem #4.  In this model, we discover where Memes fail.  - Replicator tango’s are a form of delegation. - Memes work with problem 1 & 2 - Memes fail on #3. - This is because Memes are Fool replicators & fail if they compete with the trickster printers. Cancer is a great example.  JFG calls this the "Principle of mutational servitude". Our genes are the trickster printer for the fool replicators that are memes.  Problem 4: The printer replacement problem. DNA won this battle (clearly).  It's proven by: “The principle of everlasting fingerprints”  Adding layers to the genetic code. The upper layer encodes the lower layer. Each genetic code layer is the remnant or evidence of a prior phenotypic revolution. We also dig into the idea of Quantum Darwinism (fascinating stuff). The idea of proteins encoding quantum states.  Abiogenesis VS Proteins & Quantum Evolution Phenotypic Revolutions all the way down. We discuss the The Phenotypic Separation Theory of Sex - The origins of sex - The 2 step process of Meiosis, and how it emerged despite it's unlikelihood. - How through separation it somehow solved problem 1, but done away with problems 2 - 4. Toward the end we discuss the warning of the book, ie; "The End of DNA", and teh story of the Natural's VS the Chosen's. The Path to QNA I pose some challenges to JFG, ie; - Problems with genetic adjustment. - Could the geneticists just fuck themselves up more? - Is the complexity too great? Where does it lead? Quantum World?? -- Proteins — RNA — DNA -- ??? Lastly, we cap it off with discussions on: Where does the idea of “god” or the “divine” fit and the idea of humans being of the divine ? So are proteins created in the image of God? Rebuttal against the guys who think Darwinism & natural selection is mathematically impossible  What is Consciousness? Soooooo much to digest in this one. Listen, enjoy, learn & share.
