“In all affairs it's a healthy thing now and then to hang a question mark on the things you have long taken for granted.” ― Bertrand Russell

This is the twelfth episode of the Lightning Junkies podcast. In this episode, we have Ragnar Lifthrasir from Guns N' Bitcoin. Guns N' Bitcoin is a company that sells some products related to (surprisingly) guns and Bitcoin, including their scorpion case. Ragnar previously had an issue getting Lightning working for Guns N' Bitcoin and it has caused him to criticize it on Twitter previously because of that, I wanted to get him on the show to share his thoughts about this technology. This is the second episode of the "Skeptical of Lightning" series, next week we will move on to something else, but I do intend to return to this subject throughout the life of the podcast.  Ragnar and I talk about:

  • Getting Into Bitcoin
  • Guns N Bitcoin
  • Putting Guns and Bitcoin Together
  • Possible Arguments Against Guns
  • Guns and Mental Illness
  • Guns for Fun
  • Guns N Bitcoin Podcast
  • Bitcoin fixing being Poor?
  • Closed Loop Economies
  • Experience with Lightning
  • Arguments in Favor of Lightning
  • Bitcoin: Corporate vs Cypherpunk
  • Future of Bitcoin
  • Is Bitcoin going to "win"?
