Stephan interviews Saifedean Ammous, Austrian Economics Professor and author of The Bitcoin Standard. In this podcast episode we take a deep dive into the case for Bitcoin as sound money, and what is potentially the hardest money the world has ever seen.

We discuss:

  • Bitcoin as Sound Money
  • Why using the hardest money is not a choice
  • Why Bitcoin is difficult to change, and why that’s a good thing
  • How Bitcoin may proceed through various stages on a path to becoming the global standard for value
  • Fractional Reserve Banking vs Full Reserve Banking in a Bitcoin Standard world
