What Is The 'Spirit' Of Bitcoin? - Broadening The Discussion On 'Upgrades' w/ Guy Swann
Bitcoin Rapid-Fire

Guy Swann is a friend, bitcoiner, and creator and host of 'Bitcoin Audible', a podcast where he reads the top articles in the bitcoin space, and provides extensive and valuable commentary on them.  

Last week Guy and I recorded a podcast in which we discussed the recent 'banking crisis', and the individual psychological dynamics that are involved (both cause and effect) in a financial system like the one we currently have.

We ran out of time to cover the other topic which I was hoping to discuss with Guy, which was the upgrade process to bitcoin. In my opinion, there is insufficient discussion of the logic or rationale of potential upgrades to bitcoin, no clear framework on how one might balance known and unknown risks and rewards, in the process of forming their opinion on, ultimately, how they 'define' bitcoin for themselves - what they believe it should and could 'be'.

So, we spent the bulk of this episode covering that topic.

great talk guys, bitcoin survives despite us rather than because of us. The fact that bitcoin lives in a hostile environment will prevent the hubris that you talk about from taking hold of ‘bitcoiner’ if bitcoin can be killed it will be killed. If it can’t stand up to thr attack vectors then we go back to the drawing board. However, unintended consequences are a given. Taproot will bring in SCoiners in the droves as they are mercenaries but it is still good for bitcoin.
