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.

China, Nostr, Bitcoin, and Humanity's Potential with gSovereignty

I talk with gSovereignty, based in Hong Kong, going deep into questions about individual sovereignty and freedom. We also discuss the relationship with the legacy nation state and how Bitcoin and Nostr may interface with collectivist societies such as China. We talk about the Hong Kong protests, the dynamics of state and media, and Bitcoin’s eventual showdown with the Cantillon Pyramid. We also talk about G’s work in Nostr, including running the Nostrovia podcast, and building nostr.rocket – helping Bitcoiners organise projects in a way that is not beholden to the state.

Exploring Bitcoin, Nostr, and the Lightning Network at Callaghan Innovation's Web3 Team with Kevin Whitmore

I talk with Kevin Whitmore from Callaghan Innovation. We discuss payment innovations with the Lightning network, Bitcoin, Nostr, and more. I am encouraged to see an interest in Bitcoin technology from the New Zealand Government. I welcome Callaghan’s approach of objectively looking at everything that comes their way and making judgements based on first principles. Ultimately having a vehicle like Kevin’s work at Callaghan Innovation could be one of the ways New Zealand becomes a first mover in adopting Bitcoin. I am quietly encouraged to see the label "Web3" reclaimed by genuinely decentralised tech such as Nostr, Lightning Zaps, and Fedi.
