In this video, I discuss how difficult it would be for a government to ban the import and use of all hardware and software Bitcoin wallets.

If your government bans the import of hardware wallets, you could always build your own hardware wallet like the SeedSigner. If you can't do that, you could always use open-source software like the Sparrow Wallet or a PWA like the Mutiny Wallet.

It's impossible to stop open-source code from being shared. It's also nearly impossible to ban commonly available hardware like Raspberry Pi's.

It's impossible to stop people from memorizing 12 English words.

The easy solution is for the government, rather than banning these things, to instead just buy some BTC for itself.

In this video, I discuss the release of Martti Malmi's early emails with Satoshi Nakamoto from 2009 to 2011.

While the emails contain a number of tantalizing glimpses into Satoshi's thoughts on various matters, it's important to remember that Bitcoin has moved beyond its inventor.

Bitcoin is a complex emergent system. It is not a religious system that's derived from the exegesis of "the sacred writings of Satoshi."

In this video, I discuss the ECB's latest blog post on Bitcoin. This post fails the test of intellectual honesty, with the ECB attributing all bad things to Bitcoin, in an effort to deflect attention away from its own 2023 record losses and huge mismanagement of the Euro over the years.

Bitcoin keeps hitting new all-time highs in currencies all around the world. Could it be that the problem is actually with fiat?

Why do central banks and governments hate Bitcoin so much?

Because Bitcoin shines a light on their dark deeds. Bitcoin helps to defund these dark deeds. Bitcoin puts an end to government theft via money printing and inflation. Bitcoin stops bankers from funding endless wars.

Bitcoin routes around censorship.

Bitcoin empowers the individual.

Bitcoin gives people the financial security to speak their minds freely.

Bitcoin is a life raft for 8 billion people, whose lives are being ruined by the financial mismanagement of their governments and central banks.

In this video, I discuss Pierre Rochard's famous essay on Bitcoin speculative attacks.

By borrowing in your local fiat currency and buying BTC with the proceeds, you are actively helping to increase the money supply of your local fiat and thus devalue it against Bitcoin, which has a fixed maximum supply.

If you can collateralize these loans with things other than Bitcoin like houses, you can also avoid the problem of margin calls.

In this video, I discuss the doom loop that could be set into play if enough entities sell off some of their US Treasuries and buy BTC with the proceeds.

By doing so, they marginally push up the price of BTC vs the US dollar, thus attracting more people to Bitcoin-- while at the same time pushing down the price of US government bonds, and thus increasing the interest rates at which the US government is forced to borrow.

If the Federal Reserve, as the buyer of last resort, steps in to buy these Treasuries that no one else wants, it must do so with freshly printed USD, which further strengthens BTC against the USD, thus creating more and wealthier Bitcoiners.

The only way for a highly-indebted government to protect itself from this kind of doom loop is to buy BTC and hold it in government coffers.

Remember to vote with your own money and think long and hard about what entities you choose to fund with it.

I've chosen Bitcoin, the neutral and ethical money for 8 billion people.

In this video, I go into greater depth what a 6102 attack on Bitcoin in America would look like. Self-custody would probably be banned, along with all of the BTC on the exchanges and at larger custodians being confiscated by a desperate federal government.

I do not expect this to happen in the next 2 years, but it is definitely a possibility over the coming decade, as the US grapples with its finances and out-of-control debt.

Fortunately, Bitcoiners who hold their own private keys are mobile and able to take their money and families to jurisdictions where they might be treated better.

I would prefer if the US federal government embraces Bitcoin, as a modern digital expression of many of the principles of the founding fathers. But I'm not optimistic, unless things really change soon.

In this video, I discuss Elizabeth Warren's apparent about-face and endorsement of Bitcoin, as evidenced by a flag flown over the Capitol in honor of Satoshi Nakamoto.

This is obviously a troll by a Bitcoiner, who simply paid to have it done, and no one in Warren's office noticed (or perhaps there is a secret Bitcoiner who works there).

I discuss how Bitcoin can actually contribute to the progressive cause, by helping to end bank lobbying and demonetizing housing as a store of value. If Warren held true to her principles, she would actually be endorsing Bitcoin instead of fighting it.

Bitcoin's hash rate has been skyrocketing, and Bitcoin has been officially granted institutional access through the launch of major spot BTC ETFs in the US.

Large asset management companies will corral no-coiners into owning some BTC whether they want to or not.

The best is yet to come. This cycle, expect BTC to eat tech stocks and precious metals.

In this video, I discuss Adrian Orr's controversial comments coming out of the Reserve Bank of New Zealand. Orr brags about how central bankers can just print up fiat money and people naively accept it.

Orr goes on to criticize Bitcoin as not being real money, when it's clear that fiat itself doesn't function well as a store of value.

Most people just go along with the fraud that is fiat money and tell themselves that inflation is something natural and beyond our control like wind or rain--

When in fact, inflation is created by politicians spending too much and central bankers printing money to fill the gap.

Fiat is imposed on us from on high.

By contrast, Bitcoin is ethical money. Bitcoin is a completely voluntary system with no coercion.

BTC will continue to eat fiat and Treasuries as it begins to replace them as a global reserve asset and currency.

Bitcoin is unique and valuable because it is:

1) Outside of the fragile banking system
2) Immune to central bank monetary debasement

In this video, I discuss whether very high energy prices or very low energy prices can hurt the Bitcoin mining industry.

Thanks to Satoshi's automatic "difficulty adjustment," there is no BTC price or energy input cost at which it becomes impossible for Bitcoin miners as a whole to mine profitably.

Inefficient and unprofitable miners may drop off the network, but then the protocol will adjust to make it easier to mine blocks for those miners that remain.

In this video, I discuss why everyone is pro-Bitcoin.

Governments tell you not to buy Bitcoin, but they themselves own Bitcoin.

Altcoin scammers tell you that Bitcoin is outdated tech, but then they end up eventually converting the proceeds of their crypto scams into BTC.

Degen traders try to trade alts to get more BTC, but never to get more ETH, XRP, or HEX.

It would seem that there is something truly special about BTC that sets it apart from every other asset and currency.

Bitcoin is not "a community." It's not something that you have to "believe in" or "accept" or "legalize" or "make legal tender."

Bitcoin is cold hard cash that everyone wants a piece of, because it cannot be censored or inflated away. Bitcoin is the digital gold that bankers, governments, pirates, regular people, and weirdos are trying to get their hands on.

The sooner you wake up to this fact, the sooner you can stop listening to those same groups telling you why YOU shouldn't buy Bitcoin-- all the while they themselves are accumulating Bitcoin.

Everyone who opposes King Bitcoin will eventually bend the knee, or get taken out of the economic game completely by the stupidity of their choices (holding "crypto," bonds, fiat, etc).

In this video, I discuss Fed president Neel Kashkari's recent comments on Bitcoin, in which he criticizes it for not already being a globally accepted medium of exchange, while inadvertently shining a light on the terrible mismanagement of the US dollar by the Federal Reserve.

Kashkari is like a dinosaur or fax machine business owner who has no idea how things are about to change. And he lacks the intellectual curiosity to dig deeper. History will not judge people like this kindly.

In this video, I discuss Binance delisting Monero (XMR) and the negative implications for Monero's future. Closing the regulated on-ramps and off-ramps to an asset is definitely not a way to spread adoption.

Unfortunately, Monero has been unable to build a robust global circular economy even while it was listed on major exchanges. As holders of Monero continue to lose purchasing power, they will jump ship and swim to Bitcoin, or allow themselves to be removed completely from the economic game through impoverishment.

Monero folks are smart and privacy-minded and deserve better than this. Bitcoin could really use their talent, since too few Bitcoiners care about privacy.

Monero folks should come over and join the winning team (Bitcoin) while they still can.

In this video, I discuss the coordinated assault on Bitcoin mining by the state and by state-controlled journalists who serve as mouthpieces for the regime and apologists for central bankers.

Much of the attack on Bitcoin mining is also being funded by shipcoiners from Ripple and Ethereum, who seek to attack Bitcoin's proof of work in order to promote their own captured, proof of stake tokens.

Why does MSM coverage of Bitcoin mining always fail to mention that it can help to stabilize electrical grids, reduce vented flare gas and methane emissions, and create local jobs?

Also why does MSM fail to cover the huge human and negative environmental impact of wind and solar energy? All forms of energy production come with their own tradeoffs, and it's important to cover these as well.

Could it be that the MSM cares less about the environment than it does currying favor from central bankers and their political puppets?

In this video, I discuss the Biden Administration and Elizabeth Warren's attack on Bitcoin mining in the US, using a data collection order from the DOE (Department of Energy). This sets the stage for onerous regulation and is an attack vector on Bitcoin that can be carried out by ordering US electricity providers to limit electricity supplied to on-grid miners.

This order unfairly targets a single industry (Bitcoin mining), and makes no effort to also weigh the ESG impact of data centers, US wars, and central banker capitalism. This order is also unconstitutional and should be clearly fought against.

This year I hope that Bitcoiners around the world will begin to throw their political weight around a bit more. Please don't make this a left/right, Democrat/Republican issue. Let's unite as Bitcoiners and vote for the candidates that support Bitcoin-- or who are at least not as brazen and openly hostile to Bitcoin as Warren and the Biden Administration are.

In this video, I discuss why US and EU bankers have chosen ESG as an attack vector against Bitcoin.

For some reason, these same bankers and politicians never apply the same ESG critique to fiat money and the huge amount of environmental damage and human suffering that it causes.

Could it be that they care much more about retaining power than they do about the environment?

Fortunately, as Bitcoin makes its way into institutions like BlackRock, this type of ESG attack is weakened and delegitimized.

In this video, I discuss how constraints can help to encourage creativity, whether in the realm of traditional poetic and musical forms, corporate management, or Bitcoin.

When Bitcoin encounters issues, the immediate reaction should not be to propose a fork, but rather to work within Bitcoin's existing consensus constraints to find creative solutions.

Most of all, we need to make sure that we don't screw up the precious gift that Satoshi has given us.

When considering making any fundamental changes to Bitcoin that might affect the incentives of the various groups involved, we need to embrace humility above everything else-- and move slowly.

In this video, I discuss why it is quite likely that the SEC will continue to delay its decision on a US spot Ethereum ETF.

Not only is there a political calculation being taken by SEC chair Gary Gensler, but also ETH clearly passes the Howey Test and as such should be considered an unregistered security.

The first step on the path towards an ETF would be for Ethereum to register with the SEC as a security. This would involve disclosing many unsavory things about insider holdings, conflicts of interest, and risk factors that Ethereum does not want the market to know.

So Ethereum will remain in the worst possible position, losing market share to digital commodities like Bitcoin and also losing market share to centralized VC-coins like Solana.

As such, I expect ETH to continue to bleed out value relative to BTC.

If an ETH ETF were ever approved, it would be an amazing teachable moment on the differences between proof of stake and proof of work. Under proof of stake, an entity like BlackRock or Coinbase that owned more coins would indeed have more control over the network. This would inevitably lead to an escalation of the OFAC-imposed censorship that is already taking place on Ethereum.

In this video, I discuss the implications of a constantly declining XMR/BTC exchange rate.

If people don't want to hodl your coin, a circular economy can never develop around it. Even if your coin supports very private transactions, the need to move into a difference currency like BTC in order to preserve your purchasing power negates much of this privacy.

Money is a winner take all game. Bitcoin has already won this game, and I would like to welcome all Monero refugees to Bitcoin. We could use your intelligence and focus on privacy.

In this video, I discuss how the Bitwise Bitcoin ETF (BITB) has chosen to reveal the Bitcoin address where it is holding the BTC that supposedly backs its ETF.

I discuss the implications of this for transparency, proof of reserves, OFAC compliance, as well as the reason that you want to build a new financial system on a transparent foundation, rather than an obscure foundation.

I also show on-chain how BITB is now apparently over-collateralized thanks to donations of meme amounts of sats to the address.
