Show Notes

Prices are relative, Bitcoin is infinitely scalable, stability for the sake of stability is undesirable, maximal instability in prices maximizes resilience in the markets, and so much more. Today we dive into a bit of a wandering Guy's Take to follow El Gato's piece on the idea of a free banking system and what it might look like in a future with PBDCs, instead of CBDCs. I break down where he has some wonderful ideas, but fundamentally misses the foundation necessary to get us there.

Wouldn't be surprised to see speculation with water the same way is done now with housing in a few years if we don't start using sound money right now.

With unlimited money, our scarce resources will become extinct. With scarce money we will have abundance in the appropiate things. Its fucking insane wealthy people are buying houses to just buy houses and not even live in them to maintain their purchasing power
