This is episode 149 of You, Me, and BTC – your liberty and Bitcoin podcast!
First up today, we cover one economist’s serious theory that Bitcoin could save Zimbabwe from another currency disaster. The country has used a variety of foreign cash for several years and now has a shortage. Apparently, it’s not so easy to stay afloat when you can’t just print more of your own money.
We’ll dive into the details and share some thoughts on the news. Why do people even need a national currency? Why can’t they just use whatever money the choose? How can we support private currency competition?
Then later in the show, we’ll chat about a little Twitter debate that began after last week’s episode (http://ymb.tc/e148). Some people bugged BCoin for making a different Bitcoin implementation, while others say we need the competition.
And to wrap things up, we’ll touch on an education sale over at Udemy (http://ymb.tc/learn). For the next few days, every single course (on coding, animation, cryptography, and more) will cost less than $20 and we just think that’s cool.
Tune in to learn how Zimbabwe can avoid becoming another hyperinflation lesson! Your hosts are Daniel Brown, Tim Baker, and John Stuart. Enjoy!
