Show Notes

"This is a fancy way of saying that you need money to make markets, and you need decentralized, open, digital money to make decentralized, open, digital markets. Furthermore, higher layers require lower layers to exist, but lower layers benefit from the value created at higher layers. However valuable layer one Bitcoin can be as a new global money, it can become significantly more valuable if we recognize it as a crucial technical building block to building markets with the potential to disrupt many other human networks."

~ Dhruv Bansal, Ryan Gentry & Allen Farrington

 

How can we think differently about what is actually occurring at the base layer of Bitcoin and what it enables, to extend it to the more tangible and understood problems of internet centralization, abusive platforms, censorship, and so many other prevalent problems in our networks today? If we can break each of these problems down into their smallest, and simplest parts, and one-by-one solve each of those problems, can we begin to actually solve the broader concerns of permission-less communication, scalable decentralized payments, service provision, and global openly accessible networks of all kinds? Can we re-decentralize the internet, with Bitcoin? Find out in a fantastic new piece from the crew at AxiomBTC and written by the incredible set of authors, Dhruv Bansal, Ryan Gentry, and Allen Farrington. You'd be a fool to skip this episode.

“The curious task of economics is to demonstrate to men how little they really know about what they imagine they can design. To the naive mind that can conceive of order only as the product of deliberate arrangement, it may seem absurd that in complex conditions order, and adaptation to the unknown, can be achieved more effectively by decentralizing decisions and that a division of authority will actually extend the possibility of overall order. Yet that decentralization actually leads to more information being taken into account.”

~  Friedrich Hayek
