Today's episode is a solo show that I wanted to push out because of how fast the market is moving, and I breakdown the topic of "WHO is actually buying Bitcoin" at these prices. There are 4 distinct groups of buyers. I give you the stats and how much each group is playing a role. Thank you for listening to the show.

Read_489 - The Cantillon Effect 2.0 - Bitcoin is the First Truly Fair Money [CK_snarks & Deniz Saat]
“Because of Nakamoto’s deliberate actions and Bitcoin’s permissionless, free & open-source nature, bitcoin is the first truly neutral money. Bitcoin eliminates the inherent unfairness that comes with all previous monies as well as any need to trust a third party in order to use Bitcoin.” - CK & Deniz Saat The inherent problem with our monetary system is a systemic & inescapable unfairness. Bitcoin is provably, the fairest money that has ever existed. If you actually believe in equality, that everyone should play by the same rules, then there is no defensibility of our current money. For justice & equality, Bitcoin isn’t just a better option, its the only option. Today’s amazing read from Christian Keroles & Deniz Saat, another amazing Bitcoin Magazine piece: “The Cantillon Effect 2.0 - Bitcoin is the World’s First Truly Fair Money” https://bitcoinmagazine.com/articles/cantillon-effect-2-0-bitcoin-is-the-worlds-first-truly-fair-money Another great episode was our recent reads, both from Bitcoin Magazine, first on “Winning Hearts and Minds for Bitcoin,” by Andy Edstrom & Peter McCormack: https://anchor.fm/thecryptoconomy/episodes/Read_487---Winning-Hearts--Minds-for-Bitcoin-Andy-Edstrom--Peter-McCormack-ep6s5k And then CK’s previous piece on the podcast, “The Sovereign Company Thesis”: https://anchor.fm/thecryptoconomy/episodes/Read_475---The-Sovereign-Company-Thesis-Christian-Keroles-env68o Don’t forget to explore our awesome sponsors and their products at the links below: BitBox - Minimal, user friendly, secure, Swiss made, open source, hardware wallet (guyswann.com/BitBox) LVL.co - The first Free, no-fee exchange & Bitcoin banking services!

Pantera Capital CEO says institutional bitcoin adoption is changing the crypto narrative
Pantera Capital's CEO Dan Morehead says initial coin offerings (ICO) aren't dead, but the narrative is gearing towards a bitcoin and ethereum ruled world for investors. "Crypto as a market is so volatile that the narrative changes," said Morehead on this week's episode of The Scoop.  That narrative lately has been all about bitcoin's growing adoption. From Microstrategy to Stone Ridge Holdings — and maybe soon the city of Miami — big players are allocating millions into the cryptocurrency. But as the money flows towards bitcoin adoption, ICO's aren't over, according to Morehead. Pantera is still pitched one every two to four months, and the firm's initial coin offering (ICO) fund ended 2020 up more than 500%.  Still, that's a sharp decline from the 50 pitches a week Pantera sifted through in 2017, and its bitcoin fund closed 2020 up nearly 300%. The crypto narrative for investors is trending towards bitcoin amid institutional adoption, Morehead told The Scoop. "We’re really seeing an inflection point with more coming into the market over the last couple of months....I think the reality is they’re looking for managers that manage multi asset funds sometimes both tokens and venture and they ultimately want that all to be within a handful of managers," he said. Lately, he's getting calls from many endowments, putting the industry at an inflection point with so many entering the space. Driving the interest in bitcoin is the current macro backdrop as well as bitcoin's spring halving last year—which the firm said could play a role in bringing its price to $115,000.  He broke down what that means for the coming year on this week's episode, along with: Why the market is so focused on BTC and ETH this time around compared to the focus on initial coin offerings in 2017. What institutional investors want out of a bitcoin or crypto fund manager  Why Coinbase's initial public offering will kick off a wave of crypto companies going public. How the industry is going to consolidate in the coming years, and why many exchanges are in a prime position to get rolled up. Why Pantera is "much more bullish on Ethereum" than other parts of the space.

Ep 27. The REMNANT. Francis Pouliot, Dave Bradley, Svetski, Wake Up Podcast
Ep 27 is a no holds barred, raw, honest and "straight to the core of the issue" podcast which pierces right through all the bullshit. You know that when you've got myself, David & Francis on a podcast, you're going to get real talk - and no pussy footing around. The world has been drowning in increasing levels of stupidity, and whilst the number of people willing to speak up is growing, they're all being censored left, right & centre. In this podcast we cover the following: * How the world is a disaster right now due to the renunciation fo responsibility, or in Francis's words; Ass covering & Plausible deniability. * How Taleb succumbed to his theories and didn’t put them in practice. He took his skin out of the game * Why Ayn Rand's Atlas Shrugged was an instruction manual, not a fictional story. * How she was 100% accurate in the way she described the disillusionment of society. * Why disputed Taleb's recent lunacy, his did accurately point out that people don’t actually care about inequality - they care when they know that the game is rigged. * The problem is, the game IS rigged, and EVERYone is disillusioned, AND responsibility has been renounced. * How the free market is being criminalised. * Why the "public system" has perpetuated the removal of personal agency & responsibility  This is a killer podcast> I wouldn't be surprised if this episode gets deleted, but time will tell. In the meantime, listen, learn, share. Follow the guys at: @FrancisPouliot @BitcoinBrains _________________________________ Thanks again for listening.
