Prior to the Bitcoin 2021 conference, “Bitcoin Magazine Podcast” host Christian Keroles sat down with keynote speaker and incredible Bitcoin thinker Allen Farrington for one of his very first podcasts appearances. This interview covered two of Farrington’s seminal works and why Farrington prefers to investigate Bitcoin’s cultural and literature alignments over the typical framing of economics, trading and technology.

First, Keroles and Farrington dove into the latter’s article, “The Capital Strip Mine.” The article is a roughly 30-minute read and it dives into why the current fiat system is effectively strip mining the U.S. and current financial system of its resources. Farrington compares what is going on in capital markets to the strip mining techniques that have become popular in the modern day. Farrington laments that, because of fiat money’s poor incentives, civilization has taken on a growth-at-all-costs mentality and has thrown away all regard for long-term thinking and preservation.

Second, they got into Farrington’s blockbuster article” Bitcoin Is Venice, Bitcoin Is.” In this article, Farrington educates the reader about the anomaly that is Venice, Italy at its peak. Venice was a magical mixture of sound money, capitalism and free society when many of its neighbors were still operating in futility. Venice, in contrast to other large cities, was a bastion for the arts, wealth and thought. Farrington details how Bitcoin’s sounds and fair monetary properties provide a framework for humanity to return back to Venice-like conditions and hopefully prosperity.

Lastly, Keroles and Farrington discussed Farrington’s plan’s for his now live Bitcoin 2021 keynote presentation titled, “The Milk Of Paradise: Bitcoin And The Western Canon.” The speech discussed how Western literature, culture and historical lessons can all be fit into the values and properties that Bitcoin codifies into a physical network on nodes that maintain consensus in a decentralized way. Please enjoy this fascinating conversation with Allen Farrington.

This podcast episode was recorded as a primer for Greg Foss’ appearance on the Bitcoin 2021 “The Bitcoin Macro Landscape Panel.” If you couldn’t make the conference, be sure to catch the Bitcoin 2021 YouTube live stream for day one and for day two.

In this podcast recorded on May 25, Bitcoin Magazine Head of Research Dylan LeClair had a discussion with credit market expert Greg Foss to discuss the macroeconomic landscape surrounding bitcoin.

Foss has over 30 years of experience in credit markets, and his breadth of knowledge was put on full display during the podcast as the two discussed leverage in the financial system; investment strategies and hedging optionality using a small, long VOL allocation with a majority bitcoin position; and bitcoin as the ultimate solution to the fiat ponzi. The two also discussed the recent event of legendary macro investor Ray Dalio saying that he would rather own bitcoin than a bond, and what that means for the investment community.

This discussion is not one you want to miss. For more of Foss’ work, check out his report tilted, “Why Every Fixed Income Investor Needs To Consider Bitcoin As Portfolio Insurance,” and tune into his panel discussion with Preston Pysh, Jeff Booth, Mark Yusko and Trey Lockerbie from the main stage at Bitcoin 2021 in Miami.
