Running bitcoinhackers...again was here in Aug 2018 already. Let's see if it gains traction in 2021.

Thanks @bdrsquared and @KevinBasham for having me on your show!
With the new privacy intruding surveillance rules in the EU Brexit might have been a good thing after all. Depending on UK regulations of course.

1/Deal! After months of negotiations with the Council, we agreed the most ambitious travel rule for transfers of crypto-assets in the world. We are putting an end to the wild west of unregulated crypto, closing major loopholes in the European anti-money laundering rules. Thread👇

Someone in the @BFFbtc group in Zambia asked why bitcoin has lost so much value over the last couple of weeks. In my answer I give reasons, talk about ways to mitigate personal risk, positive aspects and the importance of self-custody. @bitcoinmagazine

These were the first lightning enabled podcasts in Nov 2020. Including mine.
That time is not even on the chart below.

There are now over 8,000 podcasts on the Lightning Network.

1,000+ Lightning-enabled shows were added in June alone, one of the biggest months ever.

The entire Rapids City/ Spearfish, SD area near the Black Hills is a real gem. But if you're camping at the city campground and need a good book to read, you can walk across to the Tiny Little Library at the DC Booth fish hatchery and find a copy of (L)earn Bitcoin.

I'm sure in Zim would exist without me. I've met Zimbabweans in 2020 who have been using it for several years already. Yes, I have been a catalyst, did the first talks and set up btc only groups. Thanks to you and @RunwithBitcoin @BFFbtc was able to support your meetup.

It‘s getting crazier. They also increased accommodation interest rates (whatever this is) and are introducing gold coins as a store of value.
Sure someone close to the government is running the gold mine.

Bitcoin is a digital bearer asset and can‘t be controlled or compromised.

As inflation runs riot, the Reserve Bank of Zimbabwe has increased interest rates from 80% to 200%. This is the rate at which the central bank will pay or charge commercial banks for their deposits or loans. It directly pushes up the interest charged by banks on loans.

But there are ways to mitigate it and in the long run bitcoin’s price has been increasing and the volatility went down. Especially for people in countries with weak currencies, a broken banking system and authoritarian rulers Bitcoin is life changing.

Show thread

Due to its finite supply of 21 million bitcoin’s price tends to swing to the upside in the long run, which gives it an advantage compared to emerging currencies, where the value tends to decrease due to inflation.

The volatility of bitcoin can be a huge problem.

Show thread

Comparing bitcoin’s volatility to that of emerging country currencies we can see that in 2016 and 2020, emerging currencies not only had higher volatility than bitcoin, but the volatility was often created by inflation.

Show thread

As the asset gains more volume, there are fewer large fluctuations in price. Assuming this trend continues, Bitcoin will become less erratic over time and therefore become more attractive to countries with emerging currency.”

…more in authoritarian or dictatorship settings. Let’s not forget that 54% of humankind live in these circumstances.

Agreed bitcoin’s volatility can be difficult to handle, but “bitcoin’s average volatility has decreased significantly from 2011 to 2022.
