Once Bitten Podcast w/ Daniel Prince https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/once-bitten/id1497540130

In this episode of Bitcoin Magazine’s Fed Watch podcast, Christian Keroles and Ansel Lindner sit down with Daniel Prince, host of the Once Bitten podcast. Daniel offers a perspective from his unique experience, starting from a successful career in global Forex and trading, to traveling the world for years with four kids, and now host of a bitcoin maximalist podcast interviewing many great bitcoiners.

This episode discusses a wide range of macroeconomic topics at a high level using bitcoin as the central force. Daniel represents the demographic of people entering bitcoin, professionals with experience with money markets and a concern about the current system and its effects. 

Fifteen years in Singapore enabled Daniel to meet influential macro experts and be exposed to a sound money culture, being that gold is more respected in the Far East. He relates his experience getting red-pilled about fiat money, fiat education, and fiat food. It seems that fiat delusions are infecting all aspects of society and culture. The conversation takes a dark turn when discussing what a collapse of the fiat Ponzi looks like when the topic of depopulation comes up, but we quickly turn this back to the positive by discussing how bitcoin will help the world. 

Mr. Prince brings up Central Bank Digital Currencies (CBDC) in the latter half of the episode and that brings us back to Fed Watch’s bread and butter. We all agreed that CBDCs are a central bank attack on banks, and in that event, banks will win. They have the opportunity to wield the new weapon of bitcoin against the central banks. This is a much different way to answer the Fear Uncertainty and Doubt (FUD) spread by nocoiners about bitcoin being attacked by governments.

Fed Watch has established itself as the bitcoin podcast which goes past the surface arguments about the monetary system, uncovering uncomfortable topics and diving deeply into how bitcoin will reshape that system. It brings on exciting guests from all corners of macro to discuss the most important topic in finance today.
