I'm joined by Andrew Bailey. He is an associate professor at Yale-NUS College, where he teaches classes on money, philosophy, and politics. His work with the Resistance Money research collective aims to understand and evaluate bitcoin in a way that integrates philosophy, politics, and economics.
In our chat, we discuss the foundations of bitcoin. We explore its origins and the deeper meaning behind its attributes. We touch upon both advocate and skeptic perspectives in our analysis. We untangle confused definitions and shallow concepts to reveal objective explanations that integrate various fields of study like technology, economics, philosophy, and more. Specifics include a close reading of Satoshi's whitepaper, the history of the scaling debate, etc. Please enjoy our in-depth discussion.
