Fiat Maximalist Fun
When does humour hammer home the reality of our status quo?
I’ve spoken before of my admiration for the founders building startups upon Bitcoin, a genuine signal amongst all the noise for future value creation, of which Zion is an excellent example. What Justin Rezvani and JP Sears bring to the table, is the critical ingredients of complimentary skills, specifically a large and engaged community with previous idea-to-exit experience.
“If Fiat Believers Acted Like Bitcoin Enthusiasts!” really made me chuckle, a brilliant use of ironic comedy, cleverly catching the attention of thousands. Equally I enjoyed the succinct problem solution statement, helping potential users understand their value proposition, and educate them on why signing up is of value to them.
Some highlights: “Fiat always and only works for your government. Never against them”, “I am a control maximalist”, “Mmmm just checking the price of my money again… It’s gone down further.” LOL. What great hustle, to marry humour, with education!
Sovereignty Through Mathematics
Why do people’s personal journeys enhance our lens of understanding?
What an enjoyable 90 minutes it was reading “Sovereignty Through Mathematics”, by Knut Svanholm, an author who’s work I am starting to rate as some of the very best Bitcoin education out there. In a relatively short space of time, I was able to get a grasp of critical concepts, in a simple yet direct message.
I felt like I was reading the conclusions of a fascinating life story, in which Bitcoin had come along and solidified many previous un-answered questions, then gone on to shape answers that gave a new-found clarity of the world. Distilling the enormity of the technology, is no mean feat, so I laud any Bitcoiner capable of helping us all to understand this innovation more clearly.
This resonates strongly with me, in terms of how pre-bitcoin I now feel I didn’t really understand what was going on around me, or what world-view I held un-biased to the traditions of family or schooling. This highlights nicely how important people’s personal journeys are, we are a sum of all our experiences to date, which give everyone a unique and rich lens to view the discovery that is Bitcoin.
Encouraging Difficult Questions
What happens when we start digging a little deeper?
Mark Moss creates content that regularly makes this newsletter, for the very simple reason, it’s informative and thought provoking. What does a monetary reset actually look like? Are we heading for a central bank digital coin? Which industry insider insights can we utilise?
None of the answers to these questions are straight forward, especially given the long history public opinion deception, when it comes to our monetary system. What I like however is the willingness to ask hard questions in the first place, really digging into the details, in an attempt to decipher one’s own strategy.
As you will have guessed, I am firmly of the opinion that Bitcoin is the solution to many of the problems we see, critically empowering the individual. Debate over monetary policy, constant monitoring of central bank behaviour, and reckless insider profiteering; would all be relegated to the history books…
