Bitcoin in El Salvador: Why Would Cypherpunks Support Government-Mandated Bitcoin Adoption? - Ep. 37...

Nelson Rauda, Salvadoran journalist for El Faro, comes to talk about the impact of Bitcoin in El Salvador, the needs of Salvadoran people, Bitcoin City and the Bitcoin Bond, and much more.    Show highlights: ---Nelson’s story and how he began covering BTC ---what kind of politician and president Nayib Bukele was before BTC ---what the financial reality was for Salvadoran people before the implementation of BTC ---the reasons for the high rates of unbanked people in El Salvador ---how Bukele changed the monetary policy with what Rauda says was very little discussion ---why Rauda believes the BTC law is not meant for Salvadorans, but instead is a PR stunt ---how people reacted after the announcement of BTC as legal tender, and how it resembled the dollarization of the economy in 2001 ---how Nelson did not even understand BTC at the moment of the announcement and how he says there was not an effort from the government to educate the population ---whether BTC was successful in attracting investments and tourism, and how there’s no hard data about it ---why Nelson believes Bukele was trying to hide the scandals when he adopted BTC ---whether BTC has been used as a PR stunt ---why bitcoiners are enthusiastic about an authoritarian government adopting BTC as legal tender ---how Bukele might be undermining his own authority by adopting BTC, a type of money that is not controlled by a state ---whether the Chivo wallet is a surveillance tool ---why Nelson believes BTC does not represent a solution for the needs of average Salvadoran people ---whether the $30 dollar initial gift to download the BTC wallet was seen as just another subsidy ---the status of Bitcoin City and how Nelson believes it represents the most spectacular PR stunt from Bukele’s administration ---how the expensive prices of electricity in El Salvador make the country not the best place for mining ---the significance of Bitcoin Beach ---what the BTC bond is, what Bukele tried to achieve with it, and why it has been postponed ---whether El Salvador will default on its debt and what the impact of the BTC price has on the national finances and on how Salvadorans perceive Bitcoin ---how Nelson believes people in El Salvador do not have political freedom and how it contradicts the narrative of financial freedom that BTC aims to provide ---what Nelson thinks about Bitcoin and whether governments should adopt it as legal tender Thank you to our sponsors!

Post-Merge, If Lido Becomes Dominant, What Does That Mean for Ethereum? - Ep. 372

Ryan Berckmans, Ethereum investor and community member, and Alexandre Bergeron, Bitcoin investor, discuss Lido’s dominance as a liquid staking provider, whether that issue can be resolved, and how it could be a centralizing force for Ethereum. Show highlights: ---what stETH is, what the uses cases are for stETH, and why it is important ---how Lido had a first-mover advantage and how that kicked off network effects ---whether the liquid staking derivatives system is one of a “winner-take-all” ---how much of the staked ETH will be turned into a liquid staking derivative ---how Lido might have a huge MEV opportunity after the Merge ---what the proposer-builder separation is ---whether Lido's dominance will increase over time ---whether other competitors have been competitive with Lido ---why Lido is a natural monopoly because of the incentives and MEV opportunities ---what the implication of Lido’s monopoly is for Ethereum’s censorship resistance ---whether Lido is effectively a single entity despite having multiple node operators ---whether there could be a long waiting period for becoming a validator after the Merge ---how Lido is moving its staking derivatives to other chains ---how Lido’s new dual-governance proposal works, why it might be useful to decentralize Lido and whether it reduces the power of LDO token holders ---how Lido’s centralization is the biggest threat to Ethereum in the long term and what are the possible solutions ---why Ryan believes the value of ETH comes from its credible neutrality and whether Lido's centralization may jeopardize that ---whether finding solutions around MEV opportunities is a good way to reduce Lido’s monopoly ---whether Lido’s competitors could form an alliance and build a tokenized basket of their staking derivatives to compete with Lido ---whether Lido could airdrop the LDO token to all ETH holders to decentralize its governance token   Thank you to our sponsors!

In the Recent Crypto Market Meltdown, What Role Did Lido's stETH Play? - Ep. 370

Hasu, strategic advisor to Lido, and Tarun Chitra, founder of Gauntlet, explain everything about staked ETH, aka stETH, how it should be priced, Lido’s market dominance, and much more. Show highlights: ---the role of Lido, what stETH is, and what its benefits are ---whether Ethereum’s lack of delegated proof of stake contributes to the need for stETH ---why stETH is not mispriced and why it doesn’t necessarily have to be worth 1 ETH ---the inherent risks associated with stETH ---how there was not enough liquidity to handle all the liquidations, especially in automated vaults on, for instance, Instadapp  ---how automated market makers work and what Curve’s amplification factor is ---whether 3AC and Celsius had a significant impact on the stETH/ETH “de-peg” ---how does the Merge affect the liquidity of stETH ---Hasu’s and Tarun’s level of confidence that the Merge will happen this year and whether it will be a success ---what will happen to the price of stETH after the redemptions are enabled ---why Lido has achieved such a level of dominance ---how Lido decreases the cost of staking and helps improve the security of the Ethereum blockchain ---whether there is going to be a “winner take all” in the liquid staking derivatives market ---how liquidity fragmentation can cause the system to blow up ---why LDO tokenholders might not have the same incentives as ETH tokenholders ---what is Lido’s new dual governance model and what is it trying to achieve ---whether Lido should self limit its market dominance ---how Lido coordinates validators and the role of the LDO token in this coordination ---what are the lessons to be learned from the stETH situation ---how governance is a liability to DeFi protocols   Thank you to our sponsors!
