In this video, I discuss Anthony Pompliano's apparent strategy where he poses as a Bitcoiner, and then uses the credibility to shill crypto projects and unsafe companies like BlockFi and FTX US.

Bitcoin affinity scams ("I love Bitcoin, buy my altcoin") are especially pernicious, as they often ensnare new Bitcoiners.

Pomp, Dan Held, and Peter McCormack are all guilty of leading their followers to their doom in BlockFi, in exchange for advertising dollars.

Pomp has an especially bad track record of giving a platform to scammers like Do Kwon, Alex Mashinsky, Muneeb Ali, and Sam Bankman-Fried.

Is Pomp not very bright, not very ethical, or both?

Do your own research and decide for yourself.

I have nothing against Pomp personally, I've never met the guy, and I wish him the best. I'm sure he's a great guy in real life.

The classy thing for Pomp to do might be to return some of his affiliate commissions to his followers who have gotten wrecked by BlockFi.

In this video, I discuss Dave Ramsey's recent takes on FTX, crypto, and Bitcoin. Dave seems to have a difficult time understanding the differences between the 3 topics.

Dave also pats himself on the back for somehow warning people about the space, while in fact Bitcoin has gone from $628 to $16,000 over that same period of time.

When it comes to Bitcoin or any other investment, it is important not to listen to financial gurus, but instead to do the hard work for yourself.

The whole ethos of Bitcoin is "verify, don't trust."

In this video, I discuss the famous Bitcoin inflation bug of 2010, where someone created an extra 184 billion Bitcoin ("value overflow incident").

This bug was patched by Satoshi within 5 hours of its initial discovery by Jeff Garzik, and Satoshi encouraged miners to build on top of the "good chain" that did not contain this block.

Inflation bugs are not a huge threat to Bitcoin, because there are so many eyes on both Bitcoin Core and the Bitcoin blockchain. Bitcoin does not need an official security audit for this reason.

Ultimately, Bitcoin's 21 million max supply is a social value that is enforced through the code by the social layer of Bitcoin. Without this strong social layer that holds the max supply cap to be sacrosanct, it would be relatively easy to change the supply schedule and cap by just changing the software code..

Bitcoin inflation bugs are easy to spot, unlike inflation bugs in Monero and Zcash, which have the potential to do a lot more damage before they are spotted.

It is absurd to compare Satoshi rolling back the blockchain in 2010 to Vitalik rolling back the Ethereum blockchain in 2016 in the wake of the DAO hack. The latter took place when Ethereum had a market cap of $1 billion and was done to protect Ethereum pre-mine beneficiaries.

Whenever someone talks about the Bitcoin inflation bugs of 2010 and 2018, it is almost always in the context of trying to sell you their favorite altcoin. Let the buyer beware!

In this video, I discuss how Ethereum continues to betray cypherpunk ideals around freedom and privacy, including the latest ConsenSys policy change that now allows Infura nodes to log users' IP addresses and connect them with Ethereum addresses whenever they make a transaction using Metamask.

In addition, Ethereum validators continue to actively enforce US government OFAC censorship with 75-80% of blocks.

This is what happens when running your own node is not part of your crypto's culture-- you end up outsourcing all privacy to large corporations like ConsenSys.

The dumpster fire that is Ethereum continues to burn brighter and brighter.

In this video, I discuss one of the most poorly constructed conspiracy theories that I've ever seen, which alleges that the Fed, Mastercard, and the Bilderberg Group somehow "compromised" Bitcoin through their investments in the company Blockstream.

This particular conspiracy theory betrays a kindergarten-level understanding of both Bitcoin and venture capital investing, and is being pushed mainly by BCH propagandists. It contains laughable lies like the assertions that Blockstream controls the Bitcoin transaction fee market and that Blockstream does most of the development work on Bitcoin Core.

What actual history, including the failure of the New York Agreement in 2017, shows us is that it is virtually impossible for Bitcoin miners and crypto companies to collude to try to force through unwanted changes at the Bitcoin protocol level.

In this video, I discuss the main things that make a cryptocurrency or digital asset like Bitcoin more or less decentralized.

The more actual independent human beings in different jurisdictions who run the software, the more decentralized the protocol is, and the more difficult it is for governments or corporations to shut it down.

Also, the more difficult it is for a small group of people to change the software and impose those changes on others, the more decentralized the protocol is.

Bitcoin is by far the most decentralized money protocol out there.

Decentralization is always slower and less convenient, but its main advantage is the ability to give users faith in its ability to remain censorship-resistant and scarce.

If someone has control over money, sooner or later they will censor transactions and/or print up more money to benefit themselves and their friends.

The base layer of money should not be easy to change. It should be secure, dependable, and change as little as possible, so that people can make long-term economic decisions and not worry about the foundation being altered by some small group of insiders.

In this video, I discuss the very bad things that would happen to ETH, Cardano, XRP, Solana, and other altcoins if they were forced to register with the SEC.

Not only would there be large fines involved, but these projects would also need to disclose all material information related to the project's principals and their holdings, prospects, risks, etc. These disclosures would almost certainly lead to a rush to the exits by institutional investors and others who are already nervous after the FTX blow-up.

Altcoins today serve no other purpose than regulatory arbitrage and evading existing securities law. They are a way for venture capitalists and other institutional investors to fund a project and be able to dump the tokens on retail investors, without ever having to file for an IPO.

By contrast, Bitcoin is an asset without an issuer-- a true digital commodity.

In this video, I discuss how the unravelling of crypto exchanges like FTX helps to destroy both paper Bitcoin and paper Bitcoiners. If you thought you were holding your Bitcoin on FTX, it turns out that neither you nor FTX were holding any real Bitcoin.

If everyone withdraws their Bitcoin off the exchanges, it will cause the bad exchanges (who are not holding real Bitcoin) to go under, and it will also provide a lesson to surviving exchanges that they should never only partially reserve their Bitcoin.

Grayscale is refusing to provide cryptographic proof of BTC backing their GBTC product. I think that this is a huge red flag, and may suggest that the trust is not fully backed by real Bitcoin.

Why else would they be trying to raise new capital, while refusing to provide proof of reserves? This goes against the whole Bitcoin ethos-- to ask someone to trust you, rather than allowing them to verify your Bitcoin holdings for themselves.

When paper Bitcoin is destroyed (as it was in the FTX blow-up), it should (all else being equal) exert upwards pressure on the price of real Bitcoin.

In this video, I discuss the trade-offs that Monero makes in order to achieve better privacy at the protocol level.

Cryptographic innovations like ring signatures are quite cool, but contribute to huge blockchain bloat, and thus threaten decentralization, if Monero were ever to become widely used.

There is never a free lunch in engineering. You cannot simultaneously have high speed, decentralization, security, and full privacy. Bitcoin chooses security and decentralization first, which allows privacy and speed to be built on higher layers like Layer 2 and 3.

In this video, I discuss the US government's seizure of more than 50,000 Bitcoin from someone who himself stole that Bitcoin from the Silk Road dark web marketplace in 2012.

Bitcoin cannot be hacked or seized by anyone, including the US government, unless you give them your private keys. Law enforcement were unable to access James Zhong's Bitcoin until he cooperated with them, after having been put in jail.

Governments can single out individual Bitcoiners, but it's not practical for them to put 10's of millions of Bitcoiners into jail.

Tracking IP addresses, on-chain activity, and linking them to KYC crypto accounts is one way that the government can track both you and your Bitcoin.

A funny side-note: the US Gov just admitted in this report that Bitcoin is money:

"This case shows that we wonโ€™t stop following the money, no matter how expertly hidden, even to a circuit board in the bottom of a popcorn tin."

In this video, I discuss how critics of "Bitcoin maximalism" are looking quite foolish now, after criticizing Bitcoiners for trying to steer people away from "crypto." Anyone who got out of "crypto" before the recent FTX blow-up is feeling quite grateful at the moment.

Pushers of DeFi are also trying to spin the situation, to distract people away from how centralized and controlled the DeFi ecosystem still is.

I talk about the ongoing problems and sketchy past of Crypto.com, as well as the de-pegging of wrapped BTC and wrapped ETH on Solana.

Bitcoin maximalists have been proven right, and will continue to be proven right.

Bitcoin is the original decentralized finance (DeFi).

In this video, I discuss whether Bitcoin's image and value as an investment have been permanently tarnished by the FTX blow-up and contagion.

I argue that they have not, since nothing has changed with Bitcoin's fundamentals. I use analogies like the BusinessWeek "Death of Equities" magazine cover in August 1979, that marked the bottom of the stock market.

I also discuss how it was very widely considered that internet stocks were dead in 2002, even by very smart people living in Silicon Valley at the time.

Bitcoin will recover to new all-time highs, simply because it is a unique, scarce, extremely useful asset. The smart money knows that now and is buying, while the general public and others will have to play catch up, and buy their Bitcoin back at much higher prices.

By contrast, many altcoins will never come back. The Pets.com of today are dogcoins, Solana, XRP, Cardano, Ethereum, etc.

In this video, I discuss reasons why Bitcoin has under-performed stocks this past week, in spite of a much cooler CPI number.

Bitcoin's price is currently being driven by massive forced selling and contagion caused by FTX's collapse.

It is important to understand that none of this changes Bitcoin's fundamental attributes or bright future.

Bitcoin remains the only money in the world that was not issued by a government or corporation. Bitcoin is a bearer asset, with zero counter-party risk if you hold it on a hardware wallet.

By contrast, the crypto ecosystem is imploding, and even Ethereum stalwarts like Bankless are deleting their .eth markers and openly admitting that the ground is falling out below them.

By contrast, Bitcoin has a much stronger social layer, composed of what Stanley Druckenmiller called "religious zealots" who continue to buy and hodl.

Bitcoin is not crypto. Bitcoin is not fiat. Only Bitcoin has a bright future.

In this video, I discuss the ongoing contagion from the FTX implosion, including the fate of FTX US and BlockFi halting withdrawals.

As I've argued for almost 2 years, it doesn't make any sense to me why anyone would risk their Bitcoin in exchange for a measly 1-6% yield.

People who left their money on BlockFi are waking up this morning to discover that they may now not be able to get their money back.

I also discuss Michael Saylor's great quote: "We (Bitcoiners) feel like we're trapped in a dysfunctional relationship with crypto."

In this video, I discuss the rapid implosion of the crypto exchange FTX, and Sam Bankman-Fried's fortune. Binance has submitted a letter of intent to purchase FTX, but the situation is still fluid.

There is, unfortunately, a very good chance at this point that some customer funds will not be recovered-- especially if they are being held in BTC, crypto, or stablecoins. Customer money held in fiat may benefit from deposit insurance programs like the FDIC in the US.

Crypto continues to be a huge distraction from the real revolution, which is Bitcoin.

As FTT continues to fall, there is a very real chance now that both FTX and Alameda Research may encounter solvency and liquidity issues. If you are still holding money there, you may end up not being able to withdraw your money, as happened with Celsius.

Meanwhile, the SEC continues its crusade against unregistered securities masquerading as crypto. LBRY just lost its case against the SEC, and now it appears that the SEC is collecting evidence to go after Richard Heart and HEX as well.

There's only one significant, neutral digital commodity-- and that's Bitcoin.

Alameda has been largely collateralized by the token FTT, which was issued by SBF's other company FTX. This could create solvency issues, especially if FTT continues to fall in price.

CZ seems to be pouring gasoline on the fire by threatening to dump his FTT at the same time.

Bitcoiners can rest easy, as long as they don't leave their BTC on the exchanges.

In this video, I argue how bizarre and irrational it is to single out a particular energy or activity for its energy usage, as people do with Bitcoin.

Rather than arguing about their energy mix, Bitcoin miners should probably just tell everyone else to mind their own business.

There's a strong double standard at work: when Google uses Texas renewables to power its data centers, that's a good thing; while if Bitcoin miners do the same, they are accused of wasting electricity and driving up consumer prices.

Stop judging how other people use their electricity, unless you are currently living in a mud hut and using zero electricity in your life.

Bitcoin provides fair, neutral money to the world and ends the grip of central bankers, which is an excellent use of electricity.

In this video, I discuss the bank Santander UK's decision to limit customer withdrawals to cryptocurrency exchanges, in the greater context of UK financial repression.

Santander UK is a poorly rated bank with a very poor history of stock performance and capital allocation, as well as a history of paying fines for doing things like holding on to dead customers' money. They are in no position to assume the moral high ground on anything.

The big picture is that the UK needs to inflate its way out of its debt, and may be starting the process of sealing the exits. Bitcoin is the best place to hide from financial repression, and the banks and government know it.

We are rapidly moving to a situation where people will no longer ask how much a Bitcoin costs, but will be willing to pay or do anything to be able to move their savings into Bitcoin, as a way of hiding from government financial repression.

The Fed continues to tighten and sound the hawkish alarm, even in the face of a deeply inverted yield curve.

Is what we're seeing actually economic warfare against Russia and China, rather than simply US domestic economic policy?

The speed and severity of the rate hikes, in the face of a collapsing US economy and stock market, would seem to indicate so.

Meanwhile, Bitcoin continues to hold up much better than stocks, and may be already discounting a Fed pause or pivot.

We're NOT all on the same team, because we don't all have the same incentives. Lots of crypto founders have large holdings of their coins that they printed up for themselves and their VC backers. Large coin holdings plus proof of stake are a toxic cocktail.

Altcoins are not neutral. They are always social attacks on Bitcoin and/or pump and dump schemes for VC's and insiders.

Those who are creating and selling altcoins (which are always just unregistered securities) are actively delaying the inevitable move to a Bitcoin standard. They're de facto on the same side as the central bankers, whatever their rhetoric may be to the contrary.

Those who buy altcoins are also actively delaying a Bitcoin standard and impeding human progress, whether they recognize it or not.

Not everyone will make it onto Satoshi's Ark-- choose your money carefully.

In this video, I discuss Harald Malmgren's prediction that the Fed will need to raise their long-term inflation target from 2% to the 3-4% range in the coming months.

If this happens, it would be a huge admission by the Fed that they are resigned to letting inflation much hotter than the market currently believes.

This would be bad for bonds, ambiguous for stocks, but almost certainly extremely bullish for Bitcoin.
