Will Reeves, founder of Fold, and Phil Geiger, head of marketing at Unchained Capital join Swan's Cory Klippsten and Brady Swenson. We talk about Fold’s new rewards card, a first in bitcoin, effortlessly earn sats back wherever you shop. We discuss Phil’s recent piece titled 21 million is non negotiable, I think we can all agree that Bitcoin’s monetary policy is not up for debate, but his piece in the Unchained blog is an authoritative rebuke to the idea, a must read.  We were also joined variously throughout by a few other fellow bitcoiners Guy Swann, Daniel Prince, Phil Gibson, Sergey Kotliar and Jimmy Song.

In this episode of Swan Signal we’re joined by Marty Bent, purveyor of the Marty’s Bent newsletter and cohost of the Tales from the Crypt podcast - and Conner Brown, author of a growing collection of fantastic Bitcoin think pieces. In this episode we discuss the looming economic crisis precipitated by the quaratineing of much of the world to combat the Coronavirus pandemic. It does get pretty bleak, but such are the times we are currently living in. However we do consider some of the potential positives to come out of widespread quarantine and how Bitcoin could carry us forward out of this potential darkness.

John Vallis, Guy Swann, Gigi, Hass McCook, Cory Klippsten, Yan Pritzker and Brady Swenson. This episode was broadcast live on Friday, March 13th. The day before the price of Bitcoin just had one of the largest one day drops in history - in fact all markets were in a free fall precipitated by the spread of the Coronavirus pandemic.  We gathered out of a need, really, to be around our Bitcoin friends and share some of that energy with our fellow Bitcoiners via the Swan Twitter and YouTube accounts. It was a fitting first edition of Swan Signal Live, really, a bunch of bitcoiners hanging out talking bitcoin.
