Marty has outstanding thoughts and cogent arguments. It is a shame that his "vocal fry" is as pleasant as rusty nails on a blackboard. It is most often young educated females who think that their ideas are more brilliant if delivered with raspy vocal noises imitating someone in the final stages of throat cancer. Marty Bent has compelling arguments...would be nice if he could talk without the overly contrived vocal fry that is obnoxious to listen to.

The U.S. Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen says that she has not made up her mind about whether the Fed should issue a central bank digital currency (CBDC). “There are some benefits” to a digital dollar, Yellen said, but noted that “there are also meaningful costs.” https://bitcoin-tidings.com/us-treasury-secretary-yellen-says-shes-undecided-whether-the-fed-should-issue-digital-currency

The interview with Lynn was very interesting apart from where she talks about BTC being decentralised and POS being equity, the problem with these types of argument is that they essentially take it’s read that the only real proof of stake platform is Ethereum, that’s simply not the case , Ethereum is still a mix of POS and POW , to see POS at work one should look at Cardano and Algorand they are decentralised to the extent possible, far more than BTC with its uneven ownership

Why complicate things so much 1. Your Ethereum guest seems to think Ethereum is the only proof of stake project. How about Cardano which is more decentralised than all the others , peer reviews and tested for security and highly scalable and rapidly developing an incredible echo system, Algorand likewise 2. You both seem to think that it should be taken as read that Bitcoin is the most decentralised project. That’s not the case if you look at the way in which mining is carried out , now many are public ally traded companies , how can you even argue it’s not centralised ? The reality is there are degrees of decentralisation , and Bit Lon has moved from being very decentralised towards centralisation 3. When your guest talks about proof of stake he should acknowledge that unlike Ethereum many other crypto projects do not have a lock up time and intricate rules around receding rewards , you stake your coins , you chose a staking pool you get the coins airdropped bingo T4.

I am new to bitcoin, and I always had been put off with community and the gatekeeping, I think that a more rational way of discussion would been more appealing to me and to other people entering into crypto. I think that Bitcoin is great invention and that people should be motivated by it is potentials but in the same time they should be more articulate in there interaction with the newcomers and the other people in the crypto ecosystem.
