The Global Impact of Bitcoin Education

Real Vision crypto editor Ash Bennington welcomes Cory Klippsten, founder of Swan Bitcoin, to discuss his journey into crypto, the founding of Swan Bitcoin, Bitcoin education, the development of layer 2 solutions and beyond, and how Bitcoin can help or harm the world. Since leaving Google in 2013, Klippsten has spent his time operating in Silicon Valley, working with startups to advise and raise capital through seed A and B stages. It was through tech and these connections that he found Bitcoin in 2017. Through his evaluation, Klippsten found that the Bitcoin project was sound and worth building his own company, Swan Bitcoin, to help others safe, easily, and quickly enter the space. Swan Bitcoin encourages self-custody and education into the space. Klippsten views Bitcoin as the third leg of the stool in one's "set it and forget it" wealth building plan with the first two being a 401K and a mortgage. According to Klippsten, by creating a baseline of automatic reoccurring purchases, auto dollar-cost averaging (DCA) or, as he calls it, getting paid in Bitcoin, is a great way to build a solid foundation for oneself. Filmed April 29, 2021. Key Learnings: It is clear to Klippsten that Bitcoin is the new global money. If Bitcoin’s market cap continues to rise, Klippsten predicts that more and more people will hold their wealth in Bitcoin. Where there is friction going back and forth between bitcoin and traditional units of exchange over the next 10 years, it will eventually become easier to exclusively transact in bitcoin. Further, Klippsten believes that Bitcoin holders will be much more comfortable spending bitcoin once the expectation of its meteoric rise begins to taper. Once it reaches a $20 trillion market cap, which he expects over the next decade, this shift will occur, and by 2035, most goods and services will be able to be purchased with Bitcoin globally. Klippsten identifies that there is a direct line between one's understanding of Bitcoin and how much a user is willing to allocate their assets to it. It is through education that Klippsten feels Bitcoin and its usage will continue to grow.

Ampleforth: Ideal Reserve Currency
Real Vision senior editor Ash Bennington is joined by Evan Kuo, founder of Ampleforth, to discuss how Ampleforth was engineered specifically to satisfy characteristics of the ideal reserve currency. By working with Stanford's Hoover Institute for several years, Kuo and his team have been refining what it means to be a "good" reserve currency. A key innovation lies in their maneuver to substitute price volatility with supply volatility. Kuo's goal is to create the ultimate unit of account, resistant to demand shocks typically seen in business cycle contractions. Filmed on June 17, 2021.
