    Raoul hit the nail on the head ---- WE GET TO FRONT RUN the biggest movement of capital EVER. The old financial system is dying and crypto is going to replace it. I bought my first bitcoin in 2014 and have watched the space grow and it is more than just bitcoin ---

    I feel like all these new segments recently introduced on RV i.e. membership plans and now RV Crypto are taxation on my annual membership I was happy to pay the last two years. I used to have access to all of the content on RV with a simple membership plan with an expectation of having access to quality & balanced content on all macro areas. However, the same membership I paid last year have been inflated away and I am now expected to put in more $$. I totally understand that this is being done for members to get focused content and increase revenue for RV but you are changing the rules after my membership started and I do not think this is fair for those who have already subscribed. This should only be offered for new members (and membership renewals) and the existing members should have all the right to access the new content. Please keep this in mind and do not deliver less on what you have promised. In the end, what's keeping you from introducing 50 more new segments and force existing members to subscribe to all for more $ whilst their memberships are still active?

      Im also getting the same feeling...if team size (their time invested in producing content) is the same as before I dont think they should charge extra....but at the end its their business and they can set the price anyway they want...

      Disagree. Like Raoul said, RV is not changing the Essential plan or even removing the regular crypto content. This is additional crypto content for those who are interested in more on crypto than we're already receiving. You get what you pay for! I think it's worth checking out.

    It's nice to see where RV is going. I've been fascinated in the space since 2012 and it has blown my mind how far it has come. DeFi is a big winner where I can actually make far more interest than leaving it in a bank collecting dust. It's already working now it's time to show the world.

    Software eating money is a great metaphor. Still as someone new to Bitcoin but open-minded, I worry that these guys have swallowed the kool-aid and their reporting may not be balanced, especially because it is a new revenue stream for RV and that may make it easier to want to pump BTC beyond what it deserves. We'll see.

      The proof will be in the pudding, as they say. If you concur you buy #BTC now. If not don't, sit on the sidelines, listen and learn, invest should you feel comfortable. #BTC is super cheap now, at $20,000, at $30,000 - LTF it's headed to infinity or more precisely it's headed towards being adopted as the Unit of Account, usurping the $. When? Egal (as the Germans say)! That should be all you need to know. Ergo fiat is doomed.

    I think you have 2 cultures colliding here - tech that knows the crypto and traditional investors that know the economic fundamentals. Neither side knows the other. In fact they are so far away from each other as to not even speak the same language. (a point mentioned in this video) That said, tech is used to coming up to speed quickly and the best performing asset class is impossible for traditional investors to ignore. (and they are also used to getting up to speed quickly) What I wonder about is as DeFi completes its replication of all the traditional financial instruments in a distributed context and starts to experiment with things with no Wall Street analog, will we have to suffer the volatility (YAM / SUSHI and now UNI) before society demands some systemic limiting features / encumbrances?
    • AG
      Andrew G.
      19 September 2020 @ 22:18
      Traditionalists predominantly know & understand a fiat regime, unbacked by gold. Current market volatilty (regardless where) is the price we pay for change, and the symptoms of the deaththroes of an outdated regime: let's hope that does not turn to violence before we emerge into the new financial age....

      (Fiat)) Money is only a concept, an hallucination, a faith, like religion: the "eating" of which is also as spurious and unreal as the value of the money in your pocket. Get on board #BTC - it's going to be a wild ride...

    I'm an electrical engineer, computer engineer, and technologist. I'm very interested in BTC but I need answers on some major structural concerns I have: Is proof of work sustainable, Will the BTC network survive as mining rewards diminish, Can BTC continue when TWhs of power are devoted to useless proof of work, will BTC be surpassed by a faster more secure crypto... I'm interested but not yet convinced.

      Proof of Work consumes a sizable amount of energy, although it incentivizes greener and cheaper sources to be competitive. Moreover, dedicating miners to natural gas harvesting reduces wasteful flares. One could also argue that the price in energy is worth the overall societal benefits of a hard money standard. The BTC network will survive diminished block rewards as price adjusts accordingly. When rewards are dimished more extensively (e.g. the year 2140), miners will be suitably compensated in transaction fees. BTC is already faster than confirming credit card transactions, and the lighting network second layer is extremely fast. The benefit of the base network layer being limited in terms of transactions per second is security - there is simply less surface area to attack. Metcalfe's Law suggests BTC has already been firmly estabilished as the dominant crypto, and there is next to no chance another competitor will arise that can supersede it (think Google, Facebook, etc.).

      Proof of work sustainable from an energy point of view? Mining rewards over the longer term might be complicated as lightning network removes fees from the chain but pretty unknown what the exact impact will be. Proof of work ensures optimum security and validation of the network, not sure that it is useless - it is the most secure protocol available. Could it be surpassed by a faster more secure crytpo? not sure that is possible at the moment for a crypto to solve the tri-dilemma 1/ Scalability 2/ Decentralisation 3/ Security - changes to one impact the other, anything is possible I suppose. The way to think about bitcoin is that it is not static but 'living', if the network is threatened or needs to adapt to satisfy a new threat e.g. miner capitulation the node operators will follow a new fork that protects / optimises their investment. What bitcoin has, is a major lead in network effect. Any new crypto would have to be a radical improvement and solve the tri-dilemma - at that point Bitcoin follows suit through consensus to a new fork OR you get enough knowledge of the space to know when to jump ship. I think of bitcoin as http: to the internet, Mike Berners-Lee gave himself a B+ for his work on the www but it is still there 'chugging away' with layers on top - hope my ramblings are helpful.

    Will all the content (ie the 4 pieces a week) always come from the same side - the pro bitcoin, pro crypto community? How do you plan to make it balanced? Will you also do interviews with people who fundamentally see this as a bubble etc? (disclosure i'm pro bitcoin but keen to understand how you will present a balanced view and even though I am long crypto I also appreciate seeing opposing views from respected investors)

    Just a few months ago I had no interest in Crypto, focusing on gold miners as the ultimate play. You're discussions about how it fits with the macro environment convinced me that I need to be in the space. To be honest, I'm fascinated with the reasons money is pouring in, and the use of Bitcoin to hedge volatility in portfolios and emerging market currencies- but I'm not as into the tech side because it seems obvious that the modern structure of markets is set for the biggest players to continue to win. Hopefully I'll be able to hit my desired allocation in a pre-election pullback but for now I'm 3/4 of the way there. I'll be watching all the videos, and trying hard not to let your infectious enthusiasm drive me into a bullish frenzy.
