Greg Foss on Canada's Bitcoin ETF, Valuing Bitcoin, and Where to Look for the Looming Global Debt Crises
Gregg Foss has 32 years experience in high-yield credit markets and has been heavily involved in the Canadian bitcoin scene since 2016.   In this show we discuss what the credit default swap market is saying about creditworthiness and default risk for governments around the world today, and how to interpret this market to come to a unique valuation for bitcoin.   We then move on to the recent launch of the bitcoin ETF in Canada, where the massive demand is coming from, what it means for the 'closed-end' funds, and what opportunities the market is throwing up as a result.   Finally, we discuss his involvement in innovative power generation and distribution solutions through Validus Power, with fascinating implications for the bitcoin mining industry.   Enjoy!   --   More from Greg:  TWITTER: https://twitter.com/FossGregfoss  WEBSITE: https://www.validuspower.com/   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.

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.

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.
