I started listening today to @TheCryptoconomy podcast (http://cryptoconomy.life/) reading of Iterative Capital's “Thesis” paper (https://iterative.capital/thesis/) and highly recommend it.. great history and background of crypto and analyzed in a way I haven’t heard before, as a long time tech minion their conclusions really resonated
A bit late to the party... Hollywood is getting it's own shitcoin:
Sounds like an interesting topic for the next SoHo forum:
"Governments of the advanced industrial economies should phase out the use of paper money in the form of large-denomination notes and sharply restrict the use of cryptocurrencies."
Wish I was in NY so I could attend:

Really good intro to Bitcoin Edward Snowden wrote for his lawyer.
What strikes me is his enthusiasm for the technology.

only 0.04 transacted on LBC, but this new top entry is AOA at a price premium of $18324.00 USD equiv. Coincident with the recent 400k Congolese expulsion in Angola?
@nic seems like a good time to prototype solution in more overtly totalitarian countries like China, Venezuela, etc. so we're ready.
Shower thought: Only people that receive payments should run full nodes. People who run LN relay nodes receive payments. The best way to run a LN node is on a stand-alone RPi system that also has a fullnode. Ergo more people running LN nodes increases the number of economically interested full nodes.
USD monetary based has quadrupled twice...
1974 - 2008
2008 - 2015
Worst part is most don't realize the criminality in our government allowed the second quadrupling. QE is but a mask.
@PaulTroon That's awesome. I'd like to plot this all on a map soon with more data to visualize over time.
@christinabahk Thank you! this is such interesting data.
I did a quick and dirty analysis of this data looking at ratios against GDP and population.
I would say the GDP ratio identifies countries most economically motivated by BTC and the population ratio is more about overall popularity and interest.
