2021 Bitcoin Review with Matt Odell

“Bitcoin was a hacked together project run by a nym…why don’t we see web3 projects done the same way? Because they can’t raise a shit ton of fucking money from American venture funds, and those American venture funds are the vulnerability because they will get pressured and they will censor things.”

Role: Co-host, host

Twelve months ago, we felt 2020 had been a defining year for Bitcoin, yet it pales into insignificance compared to what bitcoin has done in 2021. Microstrategy, Elon Musk, El Salvador, China, the list goes on. And now we have a football club run on the Bitcoin standard!

Each event was surprising and seismic. And yet, we end the year feeling like the price has tracked sideways (albeit with the characteristic volatility). Now, the year ends with some red lines being drawn by powerful players on either side of the Web3 debate. 

It’s time to take stock, review what just happened and what is in store for 2022.

To round off 2021, I talk to Matt Odell, co-host of Tales From the Crypt and host of the Citadel Dispatch. We discuss everything in Bitcoin in 2021, from the Bitcoin podcast space, price action, Elon Musk, El Salvador, Web3 and a Bitcoin Football Club.
