The Number Zero and Bitcoin | Episode 1 | (WiM302)

The Number Zero and Bitcoin | Episode 1 | (WiM302)

The "What is Money?" Show

Many believe that Bitcoin is “just one of thousands of cryptoassets”—this is true in the same way that the number zero is just one of an infinite series of numbers. In reality, Bitcoin is special, and so is zero: each is an invention which led to a discovery that fundamentally reshaped its overarching system—for Bitcoin, that system is money, and for zero, it is mathematics. Since money and math are mankind’s two universal languages, both Bitcoin and zero are critical constructs for civilization. In this series, we explore Breedlove’s written work: “The Number Zero and Bitcoin.”
