An audio newsletter taking a closer look at how money works and how it affects the world around us.

Hi All,

Today’s newsletter issue is about Bitcoin.

To those who don’t think about how money works, Bitcoin might not make a lot of sense. Why would we need some weird internet money? Bitcoin is different though. It’s something that has never existed before - a non-sovereign, decentralized, global, and natively digital store of value. The concept can be difficult to comprehend.

So what actually is Bitcoin? What are it’s properties? What’s the point? That’s the topic for today

**There is one error in the audio newsletter - there are 100 million satoshis in a Bitcoin, not 80 million as I said.
