What I'm Focused on Now

Updated June 20, 2022

Themes: Bitcoin, markets, monetary policy & history, resiliency, privacy

Doing

  • Work I’m grateful for, expanding access to bitcoin by helping others build on the Bitcoin and Lightning networks with Bottlepay/NYDIG
  • Investing more time and energy in the growing Nashville Bitcoin community as part of Bitcoin Park
  • Preparing my family for an uncertain year ahead and bracing for impact as the US runs headlong into recession

Learning

  • Taro, a new protocol and extension of the Lightning Network, built on Bitcoin’s latest major update, Taproot
  • The Lightning Network, diving deeply into the protocol and major software implementations
  • The history of monetary policy and central banking

Reading

I keep a handful of books on the go—a few non-fiction and a sci-fi selection for nighttime reading, when my infant permits

Listening

My podcast selection is Bitcoin-heavy, mixed with macro economic trends and privacy, and delivered via the Lightning-powered Fountain app. And always new music.
