In this episode Saifedean talks to Knut Svanholm, author of Bitcoin: Sovereignty through mathematics and Bitcoin: Independence reimagined. They discuss what a “hyperbitcoinized” world might look like, to what extent it might reduce the need for human labor, and how quickly its economy might grow. Both Saifedean and Knut also talk about Austrian School economists Mises, Rothbard and Hoppe, and how key concepts in their writing – such as time preference and scarcity – can be applied to bitcoin. In the Q&A, Knut shares his views on the likelihood of greater sovereignty on the high seas, whether global government control is increasing or decreasing, and why the next big battle within the bitcoin community could be over the design of the satoshi symbol! ResourcesKnut’s Twitter account.Knut’s book Bitcoin: Sovereignty through mathematicsKnut’s book Bitcoin: Independence reimaginedHuman Action by Ludwig von MisesMan, Economy and State by Murray RothbardEconomic Science and the Austrian Method by Hans Hermann HoppeBitcoin is Time by GigiKnut’s video Bitcoin’s Adoption Curve Will Not be S-shapedThe Austrian Theory of Money by Murray RothbardThe End of Socialism and the Calculation Debate Revisited by Murray RothbardThe Anatomy of the State by Murray RothbardEnjoyed this episode?
