The last time I talked to a lawyer, it wasn’t this fun. Mark Maraia, author, contributor and now contributor liaison here at Bitcoin Magazine, has incredible insight into various industries that are all impacted by Bitcoin. As he explained, there was a nagging feeling of looming problems and inefficiencies in many of the industries he’d worked in — but it wasn’t until 2020 that he realized bitcoin presents the solution to many of these issues. We expand on his perspective on health, how he relates bitcoin to fellow boomers, and networking at Bitcoin 2022. Be sure to check out the...

Mark Goodwin describes his bitcoin initiation, the relationship between energy and bitcoin and more. In a perfect universe, energy could be stored with zero degradation over time, a perfect battery. While the laws of thermodynamics deny this possibility, Bitcoin is the best representation of an entropy resistant monetary system that humans have ever seen. Few explain this as well as Mark Goodwin can, and he did so in our most recent episode of Meet The Plebs, the first on Bitcoin Magazine Live. Check out our interview where he explains how he got into Bitcoin, its impacts on the world and...

Competency in any subject can take hard work and dedication. But Bitcoin, being both technically oriented and encompassing so many disciplines, can be especially challenging. I discussed this idea and much more with Chris Alaimo, one of our recent employee additions here at Bitcoin Magazine. His work in multimedia made him a perfect fit for the video side of our magazine, and it was excellent to hear how he first got into bitcoin, lessons learned and what he’s looking forward to.

Art and Bitcoin — both draw in some of the most creative minds in the world. I discussed this and more interesting intersections with Bitcoin Magazine’s PhoenixBTC. We touched on how bitcoin affects time preference, and how Bitcoiners can be more receptive to newcomers to the space.

Meet the Bitcoin Taco Plebs - Bitcoin Magazine

My conversation with was one of my favorite pleb interviews I’ve conducted so far. Whether you believe in the power of political advocacy or not, you cannot help but understand and appreciate the passion he obviously has for advancing Bitcoin. In this interview, we discussed what spurred this passion, and how he envisions Bitcoin’s impact on the political world. While particular to the United States, I think everyone can see the benefit of grassroots organization and change McCarty describes in the interview. It was quite compelling, at least to me, to hear from McCarty that the...

Music is a wonderful thing. Bitcoin, too, is a wonderful thing. Combine them and you have a simply fascinating mixture. One of my favorite people to work with here at Bitcoin Magazine, , discussed this and much more with me in our latest episode of Meet The Plebs. His time in bitcoin has been spent combining two of his passions, and it eventually led to work in the industry. I believe that this combination of passion and professionality is what makes the bitcoin space truly special — every single person working in it is driven by a unique desire to enact change in the world. This was quite...

I can’t help but take pride in the Bitcoin community’s relentless optimism. In many other industries, whether it be through the direct decline of the industry, or a sense of general nihilism that so often accompanies our fiat based world, optimism is not nearly as present. But Bitcoiners wake up each day, ready to work on solutions to the world’s toughest challenges, not in a vain attempt to “save our planet” but in true belief that we are creating the world’s next Golden Age, the best times humanity has ever known. My discussion with Q Ghaemi was a fantastic display of this...

Meet the Bitcoin Taco Plebs - Bitcoin Magazine

Something about the way Bitcoin Magazine’s Nick W. described the previous bull run instilled a sense of peaceful confidence in me. His emphasis on self-reflection in order to learn about the future was a great perspective that I had not yet heard on the show. Along with discussing his previous experience in the bitcoin market, we touched on his fantasy football gateway into being orange pilled, how his previous creative work has helped with work he’s done for Bitcoin Magazine, his expectations for the future and much more. Be sure to check out this magnificent conversation with one of the...

While on the journey to understanding bitcoin — which never really ends — one might find themselves confronting beliefs they’ve held for a long time. Ideas, whether they be related to the economy, history, politics or self sovereignty, are all reflected in bitcoin in a particular-to-bitcoin way. What bitcoin offers us is a nontraditional base unit, both in the network and asset, upon which we can expand ideas which were normally unchallenged, at least in the mainstream. These could be ideas like the future than the mainstream media may represent. Or the idea that will help improve our...

“Go to college. You won’t ever experience success if you don’t go to college.” I, as I’m sure many others have, heard this or variants of it hundreds of times. In a world where everyone is encouraged to attend secondary education, a large emphasis is placed on credentials and whether or not people have them. But the Bitcoin industry is different. The impact of one’s work in the space is entirely judged by the value you provide. If you can submit a body of work worthy of appreciation, then you will have a spot in this industry, regardless of prior credentials. I discussed this...

While on the journey to understanding bitcoin — which never really ends — one might find themselves confronting beliefs they’ve held for a long time. Ideas, whether they be related to the economy, history, politics or self sovereignty, are all reflected in bitcoin in a particular-to-bitcoin way. What bitcoin offers us is a nontraditional base unit, both in the network and asset, upon which we can expand ideas which were normally unchallenged, at least in the mainstream. These could be ideas like the future relying much more upon fossil fuels than the mainstream media may represent. Or the idea that incentive alignment will help improve our political system. I explored this idea-challenging attribute of Bitcoin with our very own Louis Shulman, another new addition to the BTC. Inc team.
