Description

This is episode 205 of You, Me, and BTC – your liberty and Bitcoin podcast. This is also another one of Tim Baker’s (in)famous rants.
Today’s episode is all about some heavy topics like materialism, inflation, society, and creativity. In some ways, Tim loves materialism because it drives people to accomplish stuff so they can have stuff. But at the same time, some people are never happy with stuff. Maybe they should find pleasure in actually creating things?
And believe it or not, inflation is an important factor in all this. As dollars rapidly lose value, people are driven to spend or waste money. If our money was deflationary instead (like Bitcoin), would we be able to spend less and create more?
Tune in now to learn Tim’s thoughts on all that and tons more!

  • Hi there! Can anyone give me some initial advice on where and how to purchase and store physical gold? I’ve never done this before and I figure this is probably the most trustworthy forum for such advice. A bit about my situation. I’m from the UK (Northern Ireland) and have bought gold coins in the past but these were always delivered to me and are in my own possession. I want to buy and store a much larger amount as safely as possible because holding this gold myself is not really an option. My reasoning is that I am considering selling my house and travelling around the world on a motorbike. Ultimately I would like to buy a rental property somewhere that would provide me with some passive income while I travel but would probably rule out the UK. This means I need to put the value somewhere in the mean time and it certainly is not going to be put in a bank! Thanks

  • does the 16-1 gold silver ratio make any sense or matter/? If so, the current 70-1 ratio may represent an opportunity

  • And we thought we were excited when ETH was 2.00 USD per ETH. 10 USD and up! Market cap is larger than all other crypto-currencies combined (minus BTC). Wouldn’t be surprised to see some pullback for a bit while short term traders take profits. https://coinmarketcap.com/currencies/ethereum/ https://coinmarketcap.com/

  • Speculators, Take a look at the recent Precious Metals Summit for 2016. It has a vast amount of company presentations but consider paying particular attention to the Ross Beaty interview and the other keynote presentations.   http://www.gowebcasting.com/conferences/2016/09/14/precious-metals-summit
