🗑️ Mining Research Paper

A new study was released this week, exploring the economic viability of coupling bitcoin mining's financial incentives with methane capture at landfill sites.

Co-authored by a former Greenpeace activist and an environmental economist (PhD), it confirms that Bitcoin mining is a powerful tool to clean up the environment and mitigate methane emissions.

🤑 How Money Works

Lyn Alden, author of the book ‘Broken Money’ has produced a half-hour animated overview of the subject matter.

A good cheat code for those that haven’t yet read the book. It covers the history of money, the development of banking, and how new technology changes the way we interact with money over time.

📞 Interview With A Hacker

Junseth, an early Bitcoin podcaster, recently recorded a phone conversation with a hacker, exposing a phone scam operation targeting Bitcoin and cryptocurrency holders. 

The scammer explains in this impromptu interview that their approach is to prey on human emotions such as greed and fear, convincing people that they are either entitled to a windfall or at risk of losing their assets unless they comply with the instructions given over the phone.
