What is Podcasting 2.0? It is ground breaking new technology for content creation. I show, how we can build a self-sustaining decentralized ecosystem for podcasting and other forms of independent content creation with bitcoin.
2020 has been a rough year for all of us. The only thing that has been running unimpressed by the crisis is Bitcoin. It is following its distribution path exactly as planned with halvings every 210,000 blocks. If only we could stick to our plans to reach our goals as focused as Bitcoin does. But we are not machines and its quite natural that we are anxious in uncertainty. I think people who can deal with uncertainty and anxiety are having the best chances to fulfill their dreams. And to hodl bitcoin through bear markets. Because it is easy to be in favor of Bitcoin in a bull market. 2021 is going to be c-r-a-z-y!
“If you see too much drama happening around the price, switch your focus. It always works for me. Go back into the technology. Focus on education. There’s billionaires on Twitter and on TV going: blahblah blahblah blah. Turn them off.” — Andreas M. Antonopoulos
Regarding price action, I am on the same page as Andreas. I am more interested in what Bitcoin can do for society, freedom of transaction and in its technology. Not saying, that I am unhappy, if bitcoin‘s price is rising. But I do not do price predictions and weekly chart analysis or trading. I think that‘s gambling or in the best case like predicting the weather 14 days ahead.
But, this chart is incredible. It‘s done by „Trololo“ dating back to 14 Oct 2014. Trololo predicted a price of $10,000 in Nov 2017 and for summer 2021 a price of $100,000. I will leave it up to you, what you are making of it. For me, looking at the development of the Bitcoin ecosystem and the interest of institutions there is no way back. But we will never know. Just think about the proposed FinCEN regulations that want to control the cryptocurrency space more and more. There is still the chance that single countries will ban bitcoin or at least they will make it more difficult to use it. Then we will see, what bitcoin is worth. Still, the chart is impressive.

2/ The rule would impose new obligations on virtual asset service providers (VASPs) like exchanges & custodians.— Jake Chervinsky (@jchervinsky) December 19, 2020
For deposits & withdrawals > $3k involving a non-custodial wallet, VASPs would have to record the name & physical address of the wallet owner.https://t.co/H4UR4t11GX
1/ FinCEN is now accepting public comments on its proposal to extend AML regulation to non-custodial wallets.— Jake Chervinsky (@jchervinsky) December 23, 2020
The deadline is January 4. We have an unfairly (maybe illegally) short time for this, so we have to use it wisely.
