Thanks for the show! I enjoyed the oversized load format, even if it took me a few days to get through it. Your discussion about commercial banking made me think of something. If/when bitcoin wins, won't that also cause big problems for the economy if commercial banking is cut out and isn't there to give out loans, etc? Will coinbase be the new chase bank? Enjoy the last of my sats until I refill my wallet.

straddling the Gen x divide with siblings that are definitively Gen x and definitely millennial, I see merit in both sides of the argument of where you can stick your Btc. i would rather selfhost that in my basement. however in case of fire flooding or foreign invasion I would much rather have it on the phone where I can just run off with it in my pocket. the problem of having it in your pocket it's still in your pocket when you fall in the lake. but that's what iCloud is for. bye 1st boost ever
