Today the gaggle takes on cryptocurrency with all its good and bad.  We discuss the real power of cryto specifically as an agorist lies in what it can do and what it can’t be prevented from doing.

No matter where you are in your walk with crypto from total newbie to seasoned vet you are going love this one.  The real problem for many in the crypto community is they see it as a “silver bullet” vs. simply an arrow in the quiver of the agorist. We also talk about 3-D printing a bit today with our newest member of the Gaggle Sal the Agorist.

Show Notes:

  • What is Crypto?
    • Blockchain – tech that allows crypto to happen – goldmine, where you put a stake around each piece of gold,and give someone the key
    • Bitcoin is the key to the distributed ledger; no inherent value other than what the open market is willing to pay for it; gold has an actual use, bitcoin does not
    • Can code contracts into them
    • Selling a stake/piece of real estate onto the blockchain/open ledger
    • Discover new bitcoins using a cryptographic algorithm that changes based on the work the computer does. Once a certain amount of work is done, the location is open, and the blockchain is released.
    • People trade the codes with each other – selling a deed to a location on a distributed drive
  • Crypto is the most powerful counter-economic tool we have ever had
  • Sam Conklin – on one counter-economic tool will suffice to bring about the agora, but if we bring them together, we will get there.
  • Global, decentralized network without hierarchy – Anarchy in action
  • Anarchy all around us, all the time – decisions made without the coercive use of the state
  • Silver & Gold can be stolen – crypto cannot be stolen
  • Crypto faults
    • Creating currencies to digitally trade in – trading stock certificates, not a stable price instrument, value fluctuates
    • No recourse against those creating the value
    • No one actually owns cryptocurrency
  • Forms of crypto
    • Bitcoin, litecoin, dash, Arc token, proof of stake
  • How many provide service for crypto: All 6 panelists accept crypto in some way, shape, or form
    • Natural solution for selling Kratom
    • Not trackable, value rising, other ways to use crypto beyond the transaction
    • Peer-to-peer transactions that the state cannot censor
    • Non-traceable in theory
  • KYC – Know Your Customer law, customer id verification process
  • AML – Anti-Money Laundering
  • Government building a global economy based on blockchain
  • Wallet can be pseudonymous
  • Public Address = Account Number
  • Private Key = What you need to gain access/control
    • Ensure you are using a wallet (on phone, desktop, hardware)
    • Only you have access to private key
  • Coinbase Wallet has access to your private key
  • Bitcoin & Crypto ATMs across the world – You don’t need to have crypto, just put your cash in and send to the wallet
  • Back up your wallet
    • Seed = 12 word mnemonic phrase
    • Learn one phrase a day until you know them all
    • Write down and place in secure place – scrap steel or aluminum & scratch it in
    • Can export wallet file, or write down private key
    • Install wallet on multiple devices, then use key code to access your file
  • The point of crypto is to actually use it and circumvent the system
  • Just focus on the technology of cryptocurrency
  • Listener questions about the ledger nano, 3d printing, whether to buy gold, silver, or crypto, and how to convince local businesses to accept cryptocurrency

On this podcast

Show Notes

  • 2 types of people in this world – those who want to be left alone and those who just won’t leave you alone
  • Participate in small affinity groups, mutual aid groups, freedom cells
  • Problem is what is happening with the global culture, and the unprecedented levels of interconnectedness
    • The point of culture/community is to help people thrive and survive in a particular environment
    • The solution is always community; the difficult part is how do we get a grasp on the social environment in which we are going to plant these communities, and what are the seeds we are going to plant?
  • What is the purpose of forming these communities?
    • You don’t all have to agree on everything. You just need to agree on what you want to accomplish in your own lives. Example – Nicole’s community in the Holler.
    • Have a shared set of core values
    • Are we individualists or collectivists? And how do we best organize?
  • People don’t get attached to the mission, they get attached to the leader
    • Don’t make a target out of yourself or your group
  • At what point are you in the community, and when are you an observer?
  • Virtual versus physical communities
    • Can be global, with smaller, local sub-communities
    • Government cannot win a technology war
  • Leaders need to check their egoes
  • Be wary of revolutions – at the end of a revolution, you get more government
  • WHAT DO YOU WANT? Humans of Earth, what is it that you want?
  • “Only a fool would let an enemy educate his children.” Malcolm X
  • “Agorism in action creates its own institutions and builds the institutions of a free society within the shell of the old. When people start offering services, they create markets and prices. When they have conflicts, they find means to arbitration and protection. That’s what’s so beautiful with counter-economics. By withdrawing your support, stop feeding the beast, start acting economically and freedom, you bring about the market institutions we will need and must rely on when the state fails.” Dr. Per Bylund

Unloose the Goose is a podcast that was founded to bring great minds together to solve big problems that face our societies today. We aim to talk about what CAN BE without being fettered by what currently is so that viable solutions can be found that do not rely on the bad foundations of what has been tried — and failed.

Jack Spirko of The Survival Podcast provides the overview.

It all started with a challenge from Curtis Stone – How would we build our world today if we started with a blank slate?

 

He invited many people to answer and one of them was Jack Spirko. Here is Jack’s Response.

And from this came the idea for Unloose the Goose – a meeting of the minds and hearts of a gaggle of hosts who want to see the evolution of a better world. One where the individual is empowered to live life to its fullest – whatever that means to each person.
