Build on Harmony, run on all chains : Everyone buys Bitcoin for a different reason, but there is one thing about Bitcoin that we all stand behind - the benefit to humanity. Alex Gladstein, from the Human Rights Foundation, shared why Bitcoin matters for the advancement of financial freedom. For the bulk of humanity that are subject to oppressive regimes, live with tyranny or deal with inflation, Bitcoin is a life raft. As Alex elaborated on in the podcast, Bitcoin is “an escape hatch from tyranny” and “Trojan Horse for freedom” - Bitcoin is our treasure. Alex Gladstein: -- Harmony: Build on Harmony, run on all chains Harmony is your open platform for assets, collectibles, identity, governance. Be the ONE to bridge to all blockchains. Harmony is an open and fast blockchain. Their mainnet runs Ethereum applications with 2-second transaction finality and 100 times lower fees. Harmony’s secure bridges offer cross-chain asset transfers with Ethereum, Binance and other chains. -- Timestamps: 00:00 Intro 01:03 Bitcoin is for freedom 09:10 Do I save or spend my Bitcoin? 11:48 Trickle down Bitcoin economics 14:14 Personal and geopolitical Bitcoin 19:22 Bitcoin mining and governments 23:27 Harmony Ad 24:16 Bitcoin in Afghanistan 37:04 Bitcoin fixes this 40:03 Are CBDCs good? 44:48 Where do stablecoins fit in? 50:00 Accessing the dollar 52:12 Evolving monetary systems #Bitcoin #Crypto #AlexGladstein -- If you enjoyed this conversation, share it with your colleagues & friends, rate, review, and subscribe.
