SLP2 – How Bitcoin “mentally captures” people with Vijay Boyapati

Here is the show notes page for my interview with Vijay Boyapati. In this episode with Vijay Boyapati, we discuss the economics and cycles of Bitcoin. Most interesting is the concept that over time, more and more people are being ‘mentally captured’ by Bitcoin. Some other points discussed:

  • Bitcoin progressing through stages: Collectible, Store of Value, Medium of Exchange, Unit of Account
  • Hype cycles of bitcoin
  • Some recent debate on HODL’ing as freeriding
  • Confidence in Bitcoin strengthens over time
  • Remarks on where some Austrian economists miss the big picture on Bitcoin
