Bitcoin 2022 * Valuation

One of the stars of the event, ex-Blockstream Samson Mow, found controversial TV host Tucker Carlson in attendance. Although Carlson has talked as regards a lot of bitcoin lately the question remains. What was he doing there? We wouldn’t know, but apparently he interviewed Michael Saylor.

Afterwards, Mow reflected on the Bitcoin 2022 experience. “I appreciate the words of encouragement to push for greater adoption of Bitcoin in the nation-state. The most meaningful thing was meeting Salvadorans and hearing first-hand from them that we are making a difference in El Salvador.”

Jameson Lopp of Casa tells us that, among other things, he was “pulled onto a panel without notice” and “targeted by a prostitute/gold prospector in a whale-only area”.

Although the bitcoin core developer with the oxygen mask was heavily mocked online, the toxic bitcoin maximalist Giacomo Zucco showed the world that “you can have quite different risk assessments and still be friends!!”

Bitcoin 2022 * Reflection

Bitcoin Commons Austin organizer Parker Lewis had tough words for the controversial Bitcoin Mining Council based on: this panel† “After watching a panel with Marty Bent, Jamie Leverton, Greg Beard and Tony Cross, it is clear that ESG is an attack on bitcoin and that many of the public companies are a big part of the problem, but especially the bitcoin- my council.”

Author of “The Price Of Tomorrow” and participant in one of the conference’s top panels, Jeff Both, reflects on the Bitcoin 2022 experience. “It is impossible to leave the Bitcoin conference without hope for our collective future because of all the wonderful and intelligent people building it.”

While Michael Saylor and his MicroStrategy are all into bitcoin, he wants more. “All the talent and passion at Bitcoin 2022 made me realize that I need to focus more on Bitcoin,” he concluded.

Brian Harrington’s Reflections After Bitcoin 2022: “There was literally a 25,000 meeting at a volcano with a bar that we paid in Bitcoin and we saw a demo of a lightning power node paying a supermarket and Peter Thiel made mainstream news financial gerontocracy again.”

He also hosted this behind-the-scenes look at the entire conference.
