Show Notes

Today I talk with Nicki and James in El Salvador.

The couple left New Zealand, buying one-way tickets to El Salvador just over a year ago!

We talk about what it is like in their new home and the hope and optimism that they see around them. El Salvador made Bitcoin legal tender in September 2021, paving the way for using Bitcoin in everyday life, and since then the country has begun to attract people from all over the world.

Bitcoin as a Religious Phenomenon with Rigel Walshe

I talk with Rigel Walshe, who gave a speech at the Baltic Honeybadger conference this year titled “Bitcoin as a Religious Phenomenon”. We explore this topic and how in many ways Bitcoin provides meaning and purpose in a chaotic world. Whether it is the rapid growth in local bitcoin meetups post-covid, the spread of ideas such as self-sovereignty and rules for moral action, or the state of Bitcoin Culture on Twitter, the development of the social layer of Bitcoin is undeniable in recent years.
