The Bitcoin Matrix

Feb 13, 2023

In this episode Cedric sits down with world-renown economist, investor and long-time bitcoin analyst Tuur Demeester to discuss making haste slowly, bear market psychology and The Bitcoin Reformation. 

Tuur is on the board of the Texas Bitcoin Foundation and he’s an advisor to Blockstream. 

At the end of the 16th century, a rag tag group of rebel intellectuals and entrepreneurs founded a country on some of the least desirable land in Europe—so often flooded that it needed hundreds of miles of moats - while fighting an eighty year long war against the largest empire in the world.

From this struggle and melting pot of ideas emerged the Dutch and British golden ages, innovative economic institutions that changed the world, as well as one of America’s most successful socio-economic experiments: New York City. Tuur Demeester makes the case that the 21st century emergence of bitcoin, encryption, the internet, and millennials are more than just trends; they herald a wave of change that exhibits similar dynamics as the 16-17th century revolution that took place in Europe.
