This week on the “Bitcoin Magazine Podcast,” host Christian Keroles sat down with Eric Weiss, CEO of the Bitcoin Investment Group Fund (BIG Fund). Weiss was early to Bitcoin and saw its potential as an alternative store of value over the internet immediately and he was the person that helped introduce Michael Saylor of MicroStrategy to Bitcoin. Weiss and Saylor are long-time friends and it was during the initial fallout of the COVID-19 lockdowns when bitcoin as a money outside of the system started to finally make more sense to Saylor.

Keroles and Weiss discussed people waking up to Bitcoin, how Bitcoin is actually good for the dollar, Bitcoin exceeding Weiss’s expectations for 2014, BTC incentives and much, much more.

Topics discussed include:

  • The Bitcoin Investment Group
  • Bonds to bitcoin
  • Buying bitcoin in 2014
  • Buying bitcoin versus business risk
  • Bitcoin’s incentives and game theory
  • Saylor’s quick onboarding and conviction
  • Turning data into value
