Show Notes

Today I talk with Simon and Jason, 2 British Bitcoiners who are involved in organising meetups and events throughout the UK, as well as promoting merchant adoption of Bitcoin.

Simon also known as @hodlsolo, is part of the LaserEyesCards project, is the co-founder of Bridge2Bitcoin, and organises the Northhamptonshire Bitcoin meetup.

Jason is the organiser of the Suffolk Bitcoin meetup.

I think there is a lot we can learn, and this conversation provided some great insight into approaches to merchant adoption and engaging with businesses, as well as running successful bitcoin meetups and events.

If you want to get in touch, follow me on twitter at https://twitter.com/TTOVpodcast or send an email to hello@thetransformationofvalue.com and I will get back to you.

Kōura Wealth KiwiSaver and Bitcoin with Rupert Carlyon

I talk with Rupert Carlyon, Founder and Managing Director of Kōura Wealth KiwiSaver. KiwiSaver is the voluntary retirement savings scheme for New Zealand and Kōura Wealth offers a Carbon Neutral Crypto Fund KiwiSaver product, which is Bitcoin only. This is a way for everyday kiwis to get some kind of Bitcoin exposure with government and employer matched contributions and tax benefits. New Zealand was very late to the game with retirement savings schemes and the impact of this is beginning to be felt with very low savings, and old-age poverty issues. With all the talk about the Bitcoin ETFs globally, it is interesting to explore how traditional finance in New Zealand interfaces with Bitcoin, and the regulatory challenges they have had to overcome to get this product launched.

The Bishops of Fiat and the Enlightenment of Money with Bitkiwi Paul

I talk with Bitkiwi Paul about his ideas on how the emergence of Bitcoin represents for money what the Enlightenment was to science: a technology-driven change that led to fundamental shifts in society and the way we understand the world around us.
