In this episode with Neil Woodfine, we talk about the changing face of Bitcoin education and common errors in reasoning about Bitcoin and token economics. Some topics we touch on:
- Bitcoin in Beijing
- Bitcoin education in the early days vs Bitcoin/Crypto education now
- Incentives of unnecessary tokens
- Bitcoin is not ‘backed by’ stored energy
- Intolerance of bitcoin versus it merely being a superior money
- Skin in the game of Bitcoiners versus other projects such as Ethereum

1/ People are commonly using the term “backed by” wrong in a bitcoin context. I’m probably guilty of a bit of this myself.
