It's always fun to have Spencer on, especially when he helps shame stingy Bitcoin SV people into tipping. 😁
Imagine your favorite restaurant won't open because the workers are suing, but you have to keep paying them or the cops will throw you in jail.

I asked Jeremy some tough questions about the long-term viability of the LBRY blockchain, and the LBC token, and he happily answered. Fascinating watch, IMHO.

There's a barebones proof-of-concept here:

A really advanced version is being built on Platform:
Have you ever tried to change yourself? It's really hard. Most people only have a couple of major changes in them during their lives. Now imagine how hard it is to change the world.
A few years ago no one even knew that the obscure internet money I was living on even existed. Now celebrities casually name-drop it on podcasts. 🤯
This is exactly what I think makes a perfect podcast too good to last only one hour: tons of honesty and controversy, and ultimately excitement as to a bright future. Enjoy!

If you aren't criticizing El Salvador's new Bitcoin law, then you support (or are complacent to) government forcing a new product/service on people that don't want it, and who will incur costs to become compliant.
The crypto revolution isn't just about money. It's about decentralizing everything. Imagine almost anything run by a centralized structure, then imagine it radically transparent, permissionless, and decentralized.

Thanks so much for the Dash, Anonymous! Glad you liked the interview with Arden ("Mrs. Dash")!

Huge because one of the biggest barriers to content creators getting tipped in crypto is the donor not having any to begin with. Now the "normies" can donate.
What's the Bitcoin scene like in Miami? I'll be there this weekend and I'm especially looking for merchants that accept it, especially Lightning Network. Let me know!

Yes we mentioned it, and you noticed it too: IMHO too many liberty people didn't know enough about crypto to understand what was going on and sort of faded away.
Whenever you wonder why I'm still so excited about Dash after all these years and all these other new exciting projects, just read these threads.
