Show Notes

Today I talk with Darcy Ungaro. Darcy is a financial advisor, a Bitcoiner, and he also hosts the NZ Everyday Investor Podcast.

This episode is very much a crossover where we talk about our views on Bitcoin and what the future may look like. Wealth and investment planning strategies traditionally involve things like real estate, stocks, and KiwiSaver, but for many people these pathways are no longer realistic options and more and more people are seeking alternatives, such as Bitcoin.

There is a lot going on out there. It sometimes seems like we are entering a brave new world where things will never be the same again. As the Roman Emperor Marcus Aurelius once wrote:

"Consider frequently, how swiftly all things which exist, are swept away, and carried off."

Perhaps it is the change presented by an unchangeable money called Bitcoin that will help us move in a better direction?

Privacy, Security, and Freedom Tech with Dash

Dash is part of the Tokyo Citadel Group, who I was able to meet when I was travelling through Japan recently. My impression from the Tokyo Citadel was that there was real interest in privacy, security, and the potential threats that Bitcoiners personally face from the nation state. Now this is not unfounded, and we have seen people being detained over things like coinjoins and through chain analysis. But I wanted to understand this perspective more and compare it with the situation in New Zealand.

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.
