Description

This is episode 256 of You, Me, and BTC – your liberty and Bitcoin podcast.
First up today, we’ll introduce our genius guest and share his story. Rob Viglione helped found ZenCash, one of the most respected privacy-oriented cryptocurrencies out there. But his team hopes to turn the project into an entire platform packed with anonymous features. Rob is a serious liberty lover, so we’re excited to learn how he’s making the world more free.
Then later in the show, we’ll dive into a privacy-related topic that’s always hot in liberty circles. After last week’s foray into free speech (ymb.tc/e255), we learned that we’re experts. We know everything there is to know about our right to say what we want to say, so we’re gonna say what we want to say. And this week, we want to cover freeze peach… *ahem* …free speech again.
This time, it’s all about banning books. Lots of people think computer code is speech. And with that in mind, lots of people think computer code should not be censored, even when it’s printed in a book. But that’s exactly what Amazon did when they banned a physical version of Cody Wilson’s code for printing guns.
Of course, many people argue that there are all kinds of gun-related books and manuals sold on Amazon daily. The retailer also sells PGP code in print form, and apparently that was once considered a weapon. So what gives, Amazon? What do you have against our precious Bill of Rights?
Of course, we have our own, completely original, independent hot takes on the matter. So tune in for all the fun tonight at 9PM Eastern and check the list below for some of the specific stuff we’ll cover!

  • Lots of young people have been called ‘snowflakes’ recently. This group likes ‘safe spaces’, appear easily offended and ‘call-out’ micro aggressions. But sadly all of this is about shutting down ideas and curtailing freedom of speech. This is not the work of a tender snowflake but of a militancy that appears to have taken a hold of many universities. Calling them snowflakes surely let’s them off the hook?

  • This company is basically a full reserved bank that would be fully approved by Murray Rothbard himself. Their metals broker-dealer business is their cash cow today but they are creating a payment network that disintermediates banks and saves their customers money. They have a crypto broker-dealer and storage business as well but as prudent financial advisors the company’s management tries to educate the public about the virtues of gold ownership. The company acts like a fiduciary and seems much more trustworthy than market leaders like coinbase. Expanding into China with a customary 50/50 JV with a local company. Tough to predict the companies FCF going forward but it trades under 2x book value. Let me know what you guys think.
