Amazing listen. The information about the foundations of money is the best I have heard. I will listen again. So many points were made that I want committed to memory.
Thanks for reading my comment on the Bitcoin Basics episode. Survagro is an abbreviation of my new project website: My expertise is emergency medicine as a paramedic, movement through challenging terrain as a rock climbing instructor and backcountry living. I teach these in great part from the perspective of surviving aggression. Id love to hear your perspective on how Bitcoin may become the primary tool of human exchange without requiring violence as a foundation.
