    Ansel Lindner: Bitcoin History, Maximalism, Ethics and Renaissance

    Ansel Lindner has been one of the most important people in my bitcoin journey, his Bitcoin and Markets podcast was the first staple of my bitcoin podcast rotation. In this long, ranging, late night discussion with Ansel we get into his bitcoin history, discuss Bcash, Ethereum and the bitcoiners who lead those communities. We discuss why bitcoin is different and what bitcoin maximalism means. We talk Austrian economics and the ethics of money production. Toward the end we get cosmic, discussing how bitcoin affects the human spirit and the coming bitcoin-fueled human renaissance. Discussions like these are what I’m here for and why I’m a dedicated bitcoiner.
