"The difference between the Linden Dollar, World of Warcraft Gold, Fortnite V-Bucks, the Euro, and the U.S. dollar is in scale, not in nature. While V-Bucks are created and controlled by Epic Games (the company that created Fortnite), the U.S. dollar is created and controlled by the Fed. One impacts millions of people, the other billions. The mechanism that keeps these monies in check--the rules of the game, if you will - is the same in both cases: central decree."

~ DerGigi


For those who are new to the show, there are so many phenomenal pieces we have covered that deserve to be heard. One of those that gave the most approachable arguments for understanding the difference between the multitude of *virtual* monies we experience in the digital age, and Bitcoin, the first truly *digital* money, was absolutely, Gigi's incredible piece, "Bitcoin is Digital Scarcity."

If you haven't heard or read this one, stop what you are doing, and turn this on.
