“It’s going to be really interesting to replicate some of the token-based authentication schemes that we already have with centralized providers but do it with self-sovereign identity, which is pseudonymous and which is persistent across the network.” - Chris Dannen An article by Peter Chawaga at BitcoinMagazine.com that touches on the many topics discussed during the Bitcoin Halving Livestream with many of the Lightning pioneers. With LSATs, keysend, LN messaging apps, and the new infrastructure layer for monetary applications. The future is bright, and today's episode is a great little morsel about what it to come. Check out the original article and the 2 great videos exploring all of this stuff further at the links below: https://bitcoinmagazine.com/articles/how-the-lightning-network-will-grow-following-bitcoins-third-halving Elizabeth Stark on BitcoinHalving - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CEim0y0Vw68 Jack Mallers, Will Reeves, Chris Dannen, & Alex Leishman - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z1mpftgg2Ls Auto-Fund with USD, Auto-Stack your BTC, & Auto-Withdraw to your keys.

"Early alchemy was concerned with purifying and perfecting certain materials, such as transmuting base metals like lead into noble metals like gold, creating an elixir of immortality, or creating panaceas to cure any disease." - Meltem Demirors How should we observe the "crypto" industry as a whole, and what, if anything, can we learn from the enormous ocean of altcoins that could find a useful application in the future of cryptography and networking systems? Meltem gives a very interesting analogy on how to look at the results of the "crypto" industry and a useful perspective in considering what we to bring with us, and what to leave behind. Check the original plus a ton of other great writing from Meltem at her blog "Meltem's Musings": https://meltdem.substack.com/p/crypto-is-modern-alchemy Bitcoin Audible is supported by an amazing group of Bitcoiners on the team with Swan Bitcoin.

"The world’s national currencies will offer Bitcoin only a sputtering resistance — more in word than deed — and they’ll dwindle into irrelevance as their defenders fail to defend, their battlements go unmanned, and the central banks’ centers will not hold." - Jesse Lawler Are we doomed for a massive battle between the monetary giants. The Federal Reserve and global powers pitted against the decentralized Bitcoin system? Or will Goliath simply fizzle out as the central banks fail to organize, find their personal interest at odds with institutional interest, and Bitcoin proves to be too distributed to even fight? Sci-Fi dystopia and a cypherpunk war, or no? A great, fun piece by Jesse Lawler, host of the Smart Drugs Smart podcast and fellow Crew member of the show, writes a really interesting piece on the potential conflicts, or lack thereof, in Bitcoin's future.

"A purely peer-to-peer version of electronic cash would allow online payments to be sent directly from one party to another without going through a financial institution." - Satoshi Nakamoto To kick off the Third epoch in Bitcoin we are officially rebranding to Bitcoin Audible, and beginning with the historic Whitepaper by Satoshi himself, revealing this incredible system to the world.

"In other words, Bitcoin already has little monetary inflation, which will drop even further."  - Dominik Stroukal Because I love discussion of markets, prices, and the EMH, I couldn't avoid one last article before the halving arrives. With another interesting take from the SatoshiLabs blog from first time on the show author, Diminik Stroukal, we get a breakdown of how to think about the halving, the stock to flow model, and predicting the future of Bitcoin. Plus, an unavoidable Guy's Rant to follow 😂- Don't miss it!

"In the absence of the gold standard, there is no way to protect savings from confiscation through inflation. There is no safe store of value. If there were, the government would have to make its holding illegal, as was done in the case of gold."  - Alan Greenspan Who would've guessed that the most succinct explanation of exactly how Greenspan caused an unsustainable credit bubble in the 90s, resulting in an inevitable economic collapse, would've come from Greenspan himself, almost 30 years earlier? Today we read a piece that was a major factor during my early years of discovering the Austrian theory and the importance of sound money. Greenspan's "Gold and Economic Freedom."

"It is axiomatic that printing money (or creating digital dollars) does nothing to generate economic activity; it only shifts the balance of powers as to who allocates the money and prices risk. It strips power from the people and centralizes it to the government."  - Parker Lewis If you were worried that the previous installment of the Gradually, Then Suddenly Series was its conclusion, then you will not want to miss today’s read. Parker is back with another bomb to drop on the unavoidable reality of our times. It is a simple and irrefutable common sense, that money which one individual must fight and labor to obtain voluntarily, and which is simultaneously created at zero cost by any other institution or person, grants no advantage to the former. Bitcoin is 21 million, and the realization that a scarce money is a better money for every individual, and more fair for society, will be self-actualizing. It requires nothing more than the persistence of the human desire for self-preservation. A huge thanks to Parker Lewis and Unchained Capital for this piece. The original, with links and charts demonstrating his argument, plus the entire incredible series is available at the link below: https://unchained-capital.com/blog/bitcoin-is-common-sense/ Mentioned in the commentary: https://chapwoodindex.com/ Don’t forget to start your Bitcoin savings plan at Swan Bitcoin and thank them for making the Audible of the Bitcoin space available for you to listen to these incredible works!

"As a friend of mine likes to say: Bitcoin is pieces of super-gold flying inside an unstoppable PayPal. It is the best money we ever had."  - Gigi Another great piece by Gigi (@Dergigi on twitter) that takes a step back and just tells the message of Bitcoin without all the usual over-complication. Ignore the monetary history, don't explain the underlying technology, lets not cover the crucial cryptographic imperatives or the game theory, and lets address the common sense reasons that Bitcoin exists, and how we should be think of it as we move into the future. A brilliant piece as usual from Gigi, check out the original below, "Dear Family, Dear Friends" and drop some applause on Medium ALSO don't forget to check out the additional resources I forgot to talk about at the bottom of the article: https://medium.com/@dergigi/dear-family-dear-friends-6ef7ee7a1a2b Gigi's comprehensive resources to explore further down the Bitcoin Rabbit Hole: https://bitcoin-resources.com Much love to our amazing sponsor and the incredible team over at Swan Bitcoin.

"Mycelial networks act as a resource transport layer and communications network connecting organisms in the biosphere. This enables organisms to voluntarily trade resources and knowledge across species lines. Increasing trade leads to increased specialization (division of labor), further increasing biodiversity (wealth and resilience) in the ecosystem."        - Brandon Quittem After the long wait, we are finally covering Part 4, the conclusion, of Quittem's incredible "Mycelial Money" series, exploring Bitcoin as a catalyst for the evolution of our species.

"What the State fears above all, of course, is any fundamental threat to its own power and its own existence"                        - Murray N. Rothbard The epic conclusion to Murray Rothbard's Anatomy of the State. What is the ultimate end of state power? Can we test to see if the State is in fact interested in its own survival, or if its interested in the protection of its citizens? And how does Bitcoin alter this ancient dynamic?

Rothbard Another piece made available thanks to the amazing team over at the Mises Institute, we dive into the first half of the essential work by Murray N. Rothbard, Anatomy of the State.

"I think of Bitcoin as a conservative investment because it’s so superior to gold. The value of it should wind up at least equal to gold’s..." - BitcoinTINA Reading a piece by BitcoinTINA summarized from the BitcoinMagazine series on how Bitcoin is a fundamental shift in the nature of money, and how quickly everything could change despite how difficult to imagine it may be.

"We Hodl these truths to be self evident" - Brady A Declaration of Independence for the age of the separation of money and state. When a monetary system becomes a burden, a means not to help the public good, but to sicken and destroy it, it is the right, and the duty of the people to throw off such system. This is why we are here, and this is why we run our nodes, defending the network from those that would alter the money for their benefit, and our expense.

If finding out how the banking system is systematically ripping you off doesn't make your angry, then you're already dead. Had an awesome discussion with Josh of Bottomshelf Bitcoin fame! Going through the incredible theft and engineered fragility of our monetary system. How it induces the boom and bust cycle, builds unsustainable imbalances, fuels irresponsible behavior, rewards those who waste resources, lies to us about our wealth, and manages to have us owing all of our life's work to a banking elite that never earned any of it. Josh and I have an awesome chat, and you don't want to miss it!🔥 If you haven't heard it yet, Ep. 53 with Carlos from Satoshi's Games is excellent: https://anchor.fm/bottomshelfbtc/episodes/Lightnite-with-Carlos-from-Satoshis-Games-Episode-53-e8fstc A huge thanks to Swan Bitcoin for supporting the Audible of Bitcoin, supporting the education on the principles and philosophy behind Bitcoin, and making it accessible to all!

"As the crypto industry makes progress toward Web 3.0, we’ll come to realize that it’s hard to beat the security and network effects of Bitcoin." - Muneeb Ali Another great article from Bitcoin Magazine, this one by the founder of Blockstack, Muneeb Ali, on the superior security and foundation that Bitcoin can provide to Web 3.0.  How its perceived "limitations," may be what makes it the best foundation we could have.   It also sparks a long Guy's Rant on the value of on-chain vs off-chain contracts, the doubts on the "tokenization of everything," & why smart contracts are only as good as the token they contract in (not the other way round). This isn't to be missed.
