Stan's Christmas Eve on Coast to Coast AM with Connie Willis!

in bitshares •  last year

I just got invited to spend four hours tonight on the American national airwaves.
Standing in for Archbishop James Long

Talking about everything from 2018 Crypto Trends, to our latest BitShares announcements, to Liberty vs. Safety, the Mark of the Beast, Statists as Demonic Hybrids and whether the Star of Bethlehem was a UFO.

"Hey Leonardo da Vinci, listen up!

This is a blues riff on the BitShares Renaissance.

Watch me for the changes and try and keep up!"


Here's how the show's producers synopsized 4 hours on the air.

Joining Connie Willis (email) for the full show, the 'Godfather of Bitshares,' Stan Larimer, discussed the good, bad and the ugly in crypto trends for 2018. He related crypto to the Biblical end of times, and also examined Christmas and how the paranormal compares to miracles. Larimer’s son Dan started the crypto-currency site Steemit, and together, they are developing other types of online currencies as well as cutting edge tech such as autonomous software for use in specialized parking lots. In 2018, Larimer sees a "flight to safety from dollar abuse," where more people will seek other ways to protect their assets from what Larimer sees as dangerous and restrictive regulations and rules imposed by bankers and the government.

Larimer warned that the way the banking system is set up at present can be used to silence dissent by essentially shutting off an individual’s ability to buy and sell and ruining their lives, which is why he sees more people moving towards methods that bypass this sort of control, such as crypto cuurenies. However, Larimer also sees a sort of backlash against Bitcoin and others in the next year because of the abuses of the system that have crept in, allowing charlatans and criminals to take advantage. He said that scams and hacking of the system took "a wonderful idea and has rendered it a wild west." This has created a worrisome situation where people will start to ask the government to step in and regulate crypto currencies, which were ironically developed in an effort to eliminate regulation.

The idea of the "Blockchain" is that a network of computers all running the same code, which keeps a check on any inequities or abuses by making them impossible to hack and completely open to all who are using the system. The ultimate vision of Larimer and his son is a decentralized system of online trade, where people can be allowed to conduct transactions with each other without appealing to a central authority, and which is incorruptible and can’t be modified. He sees it as the best hope of limiting government power, which he sees as dangerously omnipotent. Larimer also listed companies that will be moving into the bitshare markets in the next year, such as one which will use advertising and surveys to allow users to buy such things as big screen televisions at half price.

In the spirit of the season, Larimer also discussed his view of the birth of Jesus story from the perspective of an engineer and scientist, theorizing that the Star of Bethlehem may have been "one of the first UFOs in recorded history." He stated that anything outside of the Earth’s atmosphere could not have pointed out anything on the planet’s surface as the Star supposedly did, so that it must have been, as he remarked, an "inside-the-atmosphere event." Larimer further believes that the Star could either have been extraterrestrial or "spiritual" in origin, perhaps entering from another dimension.

Wow that is huge! This show is amazing, I have been listening to this show since 1996 and it is still amazing today. I loved Art Bell, and also thought everyone after him including tonight' host is great. I feel like over the years since Art Bell hosted, George Noory has continued his legacy and has done an amazing job. I hope you have fun, and remember millions of people listen, and also as a Linux user for 19 years now, I can say thoes books there in the bottom left are quite amazing I have them as well! I had to upvote and follow and resteem this hopefully you have a great time!


Fantastic show indeed, and this will be great!

Thanks so much for your subbing for the Archbishop, I hope everything is okay with him. Your appearance with Connie a few weeks back is 100% the reason I am now a member of this community. I would like to think we think alike in very many ways and am absolutely thrilled to be a part of this platform you and your son have bestowed upon the public.
I have included a link to one of my articles I think you would enjoy....

Safe journey and Merry Christmas and make sure you make a lot much merry because that's what Christmas is all about.

Merry Christmas to all bitshares community...

I've not listened to this at all. I wonder if I should give it a try? There are so many things on here to listen to.

Great show on c2cam, the 11/23 interview inspired me to sign up here on Steem, and also grab me a hand full of BTS @ $0.169. Keep up the good work, and I look forward to your future projects.

I have yet to hear but a bit of the broadcast, but I have it recorded, so there is that. You have led me to Steemit, so I am glad of that. You take care and have a blessed day.

Darn it darn it darn it! Would have loved to hear this live. Dont listen to coast to coast that often anymore.. Good for you and bitshares though

Amazing pict @stan, foll back and upvote my picture
