Vitalik Buterin sparks our debate on the merits of stock to flow and how it applies to Bitcoin. Is Vitalik right that stock to flow is a model that doesn’t apply to Bitcoin anymore or at all?

Recent discussions involving Gary Vanyerchuck have been active recently and the main topic has been around the true implications of blockchain gaining mass adoption. The real implication is the total demise of fiat currency which is when powers shift. Every 100 years a different currency rises to become the world reserve currency and the dollar is a few years over due to collapse. Now that cryptocurrencies is a possible option, we could be seeing one of the biggest fundamental shifts ever experienced by humanity. A currency not controlled by any one government is unlike anything that's happened before.

On today's podcast we interview Scott Gray, head of business development of Dev Protocol! We get an inside look of the economics of tokenizing open source software. With Dev Protocol, any developer can generate 10 million tokens as a way to capture and distribute value to their own community of supporters. Supporters can stake Dev tokens to support the development of different projects in order to participate and support a project so that devs can focus on their project. Supporters who stake mint new Dev tokens that are split between the staker and the project they stake with. We also discuss anonymous development and the chances of it becoming a more common and sustainable way to develop projects. Scott also gives his outlook of the long term application of Bitcoin.

Since the announcement from Tesla on purchasing $1.5 billion worth of Bitcoin, Iman and William have been discussing the potential snowball effect. What could the United States government do if a large portion of business start allocating a percentage of their reserves for Bitcoin? With Oracle, Apple, and Google likely on their way to make their announcements, the U.S. Government could pull the plug to slow the growth of this new asset. Maybe they understand the potential and decide to encourage development state side and have relaxed regulation. Tune in to see where you stand in this debate.

Summary

On today's podcast, we determine whether Bitcoin is going to break into a new all time high towards $50,000. We determine whether we're on track following the Moon Math of the stock-to-flow model and the non-linear regression curve. Then we discuss how there could be a chance that we might see a super cycle due to financial institutions adoption cryptocurrencies. Could we actually hit $1 million Bitcoin this cycle? Other indications show that retail investors are not in yet. Finally we debate whether or not the next wave of hyper growth is in the DAO sector tokens.
