Show Notes

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.” Article: SPONSORS // In Wolf's Clothing: Hardware Wallet (use discount code BITCOIN23): Wallet: Me At Bitcoin 2023 in Miami (use discount code BREEDLOVE): (use discount code BREEDLOVE): Apparel (use discount code BREEDLOVE): Feel Free Tonics (use discount code BREEDLOVE): https://botanictonics.comCarnivore Bar (use discount code BREEDLOVE): OUTLINE // 00:00:00 - Coming up 00:00:44 - Intro 00:02:18 - Helping Lightning Startups with In Wolf's Clothing 00:03:04 - The Number Zero and Bitcoin 00:06:16 - Zero is Special 00:12:33 - The Economization of Math 00:16:55 - Functions of Zero 00:28:07 - Philosophy of Zero 00:41:07 - Secure Your Bitcoin Stash with The iCoin Hardware Wallet 00:42:03 - Take Control of Your Healthcare with CrowdHealth 00:43:05 - A Bitcoin Wallet with Privacy Built-In: Wasabi Wallet 00:43:57 - Power of the Church Falls to Zero 00:54:24 - Zero: An Ideological Juggernaut 01:04:09 - Modernity: The Age of Ones and Zeros 01:10:52 - The Path-Dependence of Bitcoin 01:17:53 - A Chance to Win Discounted Tickets to the Bitcoin 2023 Conference and 10M SATS 01:18:48 - Hold Bitcoin in the Most Secure Custody Model with Casa 01:19:36 - Finite and Infinite Games 01:25:47 - A New Epoch for Money 01:34:50 - Fiat Currency Always Falls to Zero 01:39:27 - The Zero Hour// PODCAST //Podcast Website: Podcast: Feed: SUPPORT THIS CHANNEL // Bitcoin: 3D1gfxKZKMtfWaD1bkwiR6JsDzu6e9bZQ7 Sats via Strike: via via Paypal: via Venmo: "What is Money?"

I was just looking for the audio version of this on Fountain a few days ago, but had to settle for listening to it on Spotify via Bitcoin Audible. Thanks for putting it up here as well and looking forward to the commentary episode!
