Guy’s Take #57 – Bitcoin Domino Theory

What if, sitting in the middle of a chaotic monetary environment, increasing capital controls, balkanizing political regimes, a failing petrodollar hegemony, collapsing institutional trust, increased sanctions & weaponized infrastructure, & aggressive, widespread inflation… there sat a global, neutral, decentralized, robust, & incorruptible network to store and transfer value? What would it look like if that…

Guy’s Take #41 – Gamestop is the Battle, Bitcoin is the War

Curious to know what the recent clown show of GameStop and r/WallStreetBets was all about? Well we get into it in today’s rant about the phenomenal arrogance and outright manipulation of the major players in Wall Street after retail investors made them cry. There is nothing that could more perfectly demonstrate the reality that average Joe’s only have freedom when they are losing, but when they make a win at the expense of billionaire hedge funds, you can bet your ass the stocks will be delisted, accounts will be frozen, positions will be closed for no reason, the SEC will investigate “manipulation” from the retail investors, & the big dogs will do everything they can to prevent from paying the bill.

What is value, what is money, & what would it seem like if it did seem like a money was emerging from zero?
