Why Proof of Reserves is Important to Bitcoin

Why Proof of Reserves is Important to Bitcoin

“Bitcoin is a movement founded on individual monetary sovereignty, transparency and peer-to-peer auditability enabled by a breakthrough in technology. […] The technology to provide auditability and transparency for bitcoin held in custody has been inherent to the protocol from its inception. However, the industry has been slow to incorporate”  –Mauricio Di Bartolomeo

Bitcoin, as a new asset class, provides us with one of the most powerful tools for financial security in a custodial context: cryptographic proofs of reserve. We would be foolish to not make use of it. Let us not repeat the mistakes of the past.

Once BITten – down the Bitcoin Rabbit Hole with Daniel Prince

Once BITten – down the Bitcoin Rabbit Hole with Daniel Prince

I had an awesome time the other day with Daniel Prince on the new Once BITten Podcast. Diving into some of my own personal history with Bitcoin, what led me here, and the major changes I think we will see in the world over the next couple of decades. This was a really fun conversation and I think you guys will enjoy it. I was Once BITten, & here’s my story.

Don’t forget to check out Daniel’s new podcast, and the episode we mentioned where he spoke with Bruce about the best podcasts in the space, and the always bullish and existential DerGigi!

We’re All Default Keynesians Now

“Unless you began your Austrian economic education at birth in some unknown Austrian paradise, on this planet at this particular time in human history, I think we can safely say we’re all Keynesians by default.” – Brady Swenson @citizenbitcoin

Today we read a great little piece on how our economic understandings have become so skewed, why the default has become one of centralized, top down control over money, and how Bitcoin is set to right the world of our economic foundations. We’ve got a fun rant after this one too, so don’t miss it!

Check out the original article and drop some major applause. Don’t forget to follow Brady on Twitter and check out his show as well!

Why Proof of Reserves is Important to Bitcoin

Paying Yourself for Privacy on Lightning?

“The Lightning Network is best known for its fast and cheap payments. But the Layer 2 protocol could also offer more privacy than on-chain payments […] the developer thinks that “self-payments” could be an important part of the privacy puzzle.”  – Aaron Van Wirdum

Despite its focus on payments and scaling the Bitcoin system, Lightning may have incredible potential for privacy opportunities and improvements. Pseudonymous developer ZmnSCPxj has been detailing and expanding on these concepts in recent months, and who better to lay it all out for us than BitcoinMagazine, and Aaron Van Wirdum? Don’t miss today’s article on a new trick of payment privacy for Lightning…

Efficient Markets & Bitcoin’s Stock to Flow

“A first reaction could be that it is a great investment opportunity. A better reaction (from an EMH and non arbitrage point of view) would be that it is too good to be true.” – PlanB

If the efficient market hypothesis requires that known events be priced in, then how could the S2F be a model for Bitcoin’s price? When such an obvious and unchanging piece of information is available, shouldn’t the market price it in? Continuing with the foundation laid from yesterday’s article, we read Plan B‘s piece on what a risk & return model might tell us about the market’s pricing of Bitcoin ahead of the halving.
