On this episode of the Unhashed Podcast, we take a break from out regular weekly news wrap-up. Instead, Mario and Ruben dig into fundamental questions about bitcoin - What gives it value? Can you care about "number go up" and not about censorship resistance? Do devs control bitcoin? For the second half of the show, we do a monster overview of all possible scaling avenues, from present working implementations (Liquid and Lightning Network), experimental projects (statechains), those still being researched (softchains, spacechains, drivechains, SNARKs), and the classic methods of blocksize increases and improvements to bitcoin script (like segwit and taproot). We finish off by announcing a new and totally novel scaling solution destined to solve the issue once and for all.
