Today’s episode is the start of a new series about Bitcoin in Africa. I have been traveling to Zimbabwe and Botswana in February 2020 to find out if and how Bitcoin is known and used there. When I left the African continent at the beginning of March it was unclear how the pandemic is going to change the economical situation of countries that were already in a deep crisis like Zimbabwe or Nigeria and how it would affect the adoption of bitcoin in Subsaharan countries. With the upcoming episodes I want to give you insights into other African nations such as Senegal, Kenya, Ghana and South Africa. This episodes topic is Zimbabwe. My guest is Miss Aurra Kawanzaruwa. She is a digipreneur and the principal of St. Anne’s school in the country's capital Harare. Topics: Current situation in Zimbabwe Monetary repercussions Governments ban of EcoCash Shortages of basic supply goods Corruption and mismanagement Zimbabwean Lives Matter movement Coronavirus situation School shut down and distance learning Her first experience using bitcoin Translating "Bitcoin Money" book to Shona Getting into trouble for using Bitcoin How Zimbabweans use bitcoin DONATE for St. Anne's school: https://bitcoinundco.com/en/zimbabwe-donate/ Like it?

Todays guest is Gloria Zhao, she is a Bitcoin Core developer, former president of "Blockchain at Berkeley" and will finish her Computer Science studies at the end of 2020. We discuss how Bitcoin and blockchain technologies are seen by her fellow college students, why she chose to work on Bitcoin only instead of all the other Silicon Valley stuff and blockchain projects that are around. "Privacy and censorship resistance should be the default. We can't keep measuring technologies or applications based on how convenient they are or how cheap they are. We need to start thinking about how private they are." - Gloria Zhao Topics: Career expectations for college students in Silicon Valley Blockchain education at the college Why Bitcoin, not blockchain How she escaped the mindset of Silicon Valley How to become a Bitcoin Core developer Her Chinese roots Why privacy is so important in the digital era With Gloria's recommended learning resources in the shownotes.

Wondering what a Ponzi scheme is? Somebody told you Bitcoin is a Ponzi scheme? Listen to this episode of “The Context” where I tell the story of Italian born confidence trickster Carlo Ponzi. In 1920 it took him only nine months to defraud thirty thousand investors, who believed in getting rich quick, collecting 9.6 million USD in total. Ponzi promised 50% return on their investment in three months. His arrest in August 1920 brought down six banks and Ponzi’s investors were practically wiped out. In 1957, the Encyclopedia Britannica – the Wikipedia of it’s time – formally acknowledged that Ponzi’s name had become synonymous with swindle. The “Ponzi scheme” officially had a name. In this podcast episode you will also hear the reasons, why Bitcoin is not a Ponzi scheme. Like it?

My guest is Douglas Bakkum. He is the Co-Founder and CEO of the Swiss hardware wallet manufacturer Shift Crypto. Douglas holds a Phd in neuroscience and shifted his career from starting a scientific research lab in academia to building a hardware wallet manufacturer at a time, when no hardware wallets existed on the market. Douglas saw a problem and the need for a solution and started the company together with bitcoin core maintainer Jonas Schnelli in 2015. Shift Crypto is one of my sponsors, and after this conversation I have to say I am even more impressed with their work. The BitBox02 has some additional features that set it apart from the other hardware wallets in the market. Like the dual-chip approach. I did not know how that works before and as I want to have a general understanding of the concepts, his explanations strengthened my trust in this new technology even more. Topics: Robotics and artificial intelligence Parallels between academia and the start-up world Neuroscience, the brain and artificial intelligence Stress and routines to stay stable Launching SHIFT Crypto Trusting new technologies Bitcoin self-reliance, privacy and freedom How SHIFT handles user-data Gaining privacy with your hardware wallet Apple as tollgate What is more secure: using a hardware wallet on the desktop or on a mobile? How are hardware wallets more secure than software wallets? Paper wallets What is the dual-chip approach of the BitBox02 and how does it compare with Trezor and Ledger?

Today I am talking with Liam Ball a real estate broker on Maui, who tells us his story of how he got into Bitcoin, why it is interesting to him, the parallels of Bitcoin to his personal journey and also my journey, his real life use cases with Bitcoin and why Bitcoin is real. Bitcoin can allow person to person generosity over the entire planet. I think that’s an incredible thing. You’re taking these charitable organizations out of the middle and you’re just saying, I feel like being generous, here’s somebody who needs something and in 10 minutes they have it and it’s going right there. I think that’s amazing. – Liam Ball I do like some of the the ethical changes or ideological changes that one tends to feel when you dive into the Bitcoin space. Things like responsibility and not entrusting third parties or governments. I like that aspect of encouraging humans to take responsibility for their situations in a self sovereign way but also in a community way. I think at the community level, where you live and helping people around you is really the best way to offer that kind of help. – Liam Ball Topics: Bitcoin and Buddhism Being a Bitcoiner and coming out of the closet Use cases: supporting HIV outreach team for sex workers in Uganda paying rent for a friends mom in Venezuela Bitcoin is like property title Learning about Bitcoin with podcasts Like it?

Todays guest is Dale Bewan. He is a married father of two, living in Germany. Since 2017 Bitcoin is the only money Dale is using. He does not own or hold any Fiat currency like Euros or US Dollars. We will talk about his motivation for doing so, how his wife and children deal with it, why he is using different identities, what LSD has to do with it, his Silkroad experiences, if he gets paid in Bitcoin and much more.... Topics: Therapeutical benefits of using LSD Was Satoshi on LSD? Pseudonyms and Identity on the internet Discovering Bitcoin His silliest bitcoin mistake Buying bitcoin to buy LSD on Silkroad Spend and replace tactic Tools he is using for going bitcoin only The Lightning Network and wallet analogies Basic privacy tools and tactics Linking Bitcoin to political ideas Bitcoin adoption in Germany, Australia, Tokyo "2010, that's very early in the Bitcoin world, I discovered Bitcoin on a mailing list. It was probably one of the cypherpunk mailing lists, I downloaded it, I played with it, I mined some Bitcoin as far as I recall, I mined four blocks and then I made, what was probably the silliest mistake of my life, I said this isn't as interesting as "City at Home" so I deleted it. I thought why use my computing power to create these virtual coins I've got two hundred of them already [Laughter]." - Dale Bewan Shownotes: https://bitcoinundco.com/en/dale-bewan/ ---------- Thank you to my sponsors: LocalBitcoins.com - the peer-to-peer Bitcoin exchange.

Guy Swann is the host of the Bitcoin Audible podcast, where he is reading Bitcoin articles and essays by different authors. In 2011 Guy Swann found out about Bitcoin. Back then he used money he did not have to buy Bitcoin, just to watch it loosing it’s value in the following bear market. For him, this was not the moment for an exit, it was the moment, when he really started to investigate and learn what Bitcoin is. Topics: Why he started his podcast Bitcoin Audible His Bitcoin story The real value proposition of Bitcoin Digital scarcity The Bitcoin Reformation by Tuur Demeester Lightning as a global payments network The Bitcoin renaissance The agricultural revolution From decentralization to monopolies back to decentralization Bitcoin will change internet business models Coping with bull and bear markets What he would put inside an ad Filtering through Bitcoin information I truly think that what we saw as changes from the printing press and the oil revolution may very well be an understatement of the potential impact that Bitcoin could have on the world when you’re looking out 30 to 50 years. And like you said earlier, it’s about having patience because we need to make sure that we don’t lose what makes this thing so revolutionary. – Guy Swann Now that we finally have real value in the digital space and we can build open source permissionless payment systems and contract systems and ownership systems on top of this, I think it is going to change all of the models that we’re used to on the internet and open up access to so many things that just didn’t quite work before. – Guy Swann Shownotes: https://bitcoinundco.com/en/guy-swann/ ---------- Thank you to my sponsors: LocalBitcoins.com - the peer-to-peer Bitcoin exchange.

Lina Kather from the crypto-exchange BTCBOX Japan in Tokyo invited Anita Posch to do an interview about her Bitcoin experiences in Africa, the reasons why she is doing the work she does, her takes on Altcoins, privacy, the importance of the Lightning Network and why she believes that Bitcoin will stay the world’s dominant cryptocurrency in the future. “Bitcoin is here for 11 years now and it runs very reliable and it’s very secure in itself. The other system, the banking system, we have this for two or 300 years. We have gold for thousands of years. And, so people have also to see that they can trust in new technologies and new forms of money, like Bitcoin.” – Anita Posch “I think that Bitcoin will stay the most dominant cryptocurrency in the world, because its roots are like grassroots, its networking effect, it has grown from some nerds who used it at the beginning, to a worldwide known money, this is huge without having a company behind it or any marketing money or something like that.” – Anita Posch Shownotes and full transcript: https://bitcoinundco.com/en/anita-posch/ ---------- Thank you to my sponsors: LocalBitcoins.com - the peer-to-peer Bitcoin exchange.

Lyn Alden wrote a longform article about the 3 reasons why she is investing in Bitcoin. Lyn Alden is an investment strategist with a background in engineering and finance. She focusses on value investing with a global macro overlay. Why are you bullish on Bitcoin? "The first reason is, that, Bitcoin has demonstrated that it has a pretty strong network effect over time. The second reason is the halving, most of the bullish price action of Bitcoin tends to happen in the first year or two after a halving. And then the final reason was the macro backdrop, it pretty much, couldn't be better for Bitcoin and also for things like silver and that's because with so much money printing with so much bailouts happening, if you look at it historically, just whenever debt levels reach this high, there's usually some sort of a macro economic event like a currency devaluation that happens over the subsequent decade." - Lyn Alden When I first heard Lyn Alden speaking I immediately knew, that I wanted to have her on my show, because her insights are smart, concise and I learned a lot about the global and US specific economical situation. I think it is one of the best interviews so far on my show. I hope you can take as much away from it, as I did. Our topics: Her Bitcoin story Fitness and MMA The macro view on the economical situation The price to be the world reserve currency nation Reasons she is investing in Bitcoin Scarcity and network effect Why bitcoin is superior to altcoins Comparing Libra and gold to Bitcoin The thing nobody is talking about Shownotes and full transcript: https://bitcoinundco.com/en/lyn-alden/ ---------- Thank you to my sponsors: LocalBitcoins.com - the peer-to-peer Bitcoin exchange.

My guest today is Andy Edstrom from Los Angeles. Andy spent 17 years in the investment world on Wall Street, working for Goldman Sachs and is now a wealth manager at his familiy’s firm West Cap Group. In the course of his consulting work, more and more people asked him about Bitcoin, that’s why he wrote a book about it called “Why Buy Bitcoin – Investing Today in the Money of Tomorrow“. Andy Edstrom recently took on the role of “Head of Institutional at Swan Bitcoin” and as always this interview is no financial advice, please do your own research. “The banking industry has paid more penalties to regulators than any other industry and by a wide margin, right? It’s I think the figure in the book I have is something like $300 billion in fines paid within the last, I don’t know, a couple of decades, this is a staggering number.” – Andy Edstrom Our topics: The problem with money Central banks manipulating money Central banks manipulating money Paper claims against Bitcoin Price prediction for Bitcoin Can Bitcoin fall to Zero What nobody is talking about in Bitcoin Shownotes and full transcript: https://bitcoinundco.com/en/andy-edstrom/ ---------- Thank you to my sponsors: LocalBitcoins.com - the peer-to-peer Bitcoin exchange.

Joining me is Elena Tonoyan, she is the Chief Operating Officer at LocalBitcoins, the peer to peer bitcoin exchange that was founded as early as in 2012. We are looking into the history of LocalBitcoins, it’s growth, and optimistic outlook for the years to come. You will also learn about the values and usecases of Bitcoin that Elena finds important, because they solve real problems and have a positive impact on peoples lives. Our topics: history and growth of LocalBitcoins financial inclusion esp. for women bitcoin demand in Africa, India, Latin America supporting altcoins fraud in trading integration of the Lightning network the future of Bitcoin Expanding business P2P exchanges vs. centralized exchanges “Bitcoin provides financial inclusion. It is solving real world problems for many under-banked people across the globe, people who have limited access to a modern economy and empowering women is another big aspect for me. There are unfortunately still countries where women don’t have free access they are not allowed to open bank accounts without permission of, for example, a family member. And Bitcoin is obviously solving that problem.

My guest today is Gigi a software developer and computer scientist. Gigi wrote "21Lessons", a book in which he shares his learnings from falling down the Bitcoin rabbit hole. Two years ago he quit his job and started to work solely in the Bitcoin space. "Bitcoin already has all three functions of money. It is a store of value, medium of exchange and unit of account. It's just not evenly distributed yet." - Gigi "As I see Bitcoin evolve, I think it will be a global settlement layer for something approximating central banks. And since it's obviously superior to gold and every other form of money we had, like Bitcoin is by far the best money we ever had." - Gigi Our topics include: Building reputation in the Bitcoin space All mistakes he made How to educate people about Bitcoin The different entry points to Bitcoin Explaining scarcity The three functions of money Bitcoinization will happen in 10 years Lightning Network adoption and usability Why Bitcoin does not “move fast and break things” Current technical developments in Bitcoin Messaging on top of Bitcoin Shownotes: https://bitcoinundco.com/en/gigi/ ---------- Thank you to my sponsors: LocalBitcoins.com - the peer-to-peer Bitcoin exchange.
