🎓 Penny Wise: Asset Diversification
Hello, I'm Penny Wise,
Today we're delving into the strategic role of Bitcoin in asset diversification. 📈 In the realm of investment, diversification is a critical strategy to mitigate risk and enhance potential returns.
💼 Bitcoin, with its unique characteristics and non-correlation with traditional financial assets, stands out as a compelling option for portfolio diversification. 💰 Its distinct market behavior provides an opportunity for investors to hedge against volatility in other asset classes, potentially smoothing out returns over time.
⚖️ By integrating Bitcoin into a diversified investment strategy, investors can explore new avenues of growth, leveraging Bitcoin's potential to act as a counterbalance to traditional market fluctuations. 🔄

2. The Problem with Fiat Food
The Scoop🕵️♂️: Fiat currency can distort the food system by driving inflation and reducing the purchasing power of money, which affects both producers and consumers. As fiat values fluctuate, the cost of agricultural inputs, like seeds and equipment, can rise, squeezing farmers' margins. Simultaneously, consumers face higher food prices. The reliance on fiat can also encourage unsustainable farming practices to cut costs. This dynamic has contributed to widespread protests by farmers across Europe, who are protesting the EU so-called “Net-Zero” measures.
Why you should care🚨: The corruption of our money permeates many aspects of our lives, but the food supply corruption is particularly dangerous, for reasons which should be pretty obvious. A monetary system like Bitcoin that cannot be inflated will fix this and protect our food, our planet 🌏 and our lives.

Breez is an innovative, full-service, non-custodial Lightning client (app) designed to enhance the Bitcoin payment experience. By leveraging the Lightning network, Breez drastically reduces transaction times from minutes to milliseconds and cuts transaction fees to a fraction of their usual cost, transforming bitcoin from a digital gold into a usable digital currency. Unlike many Lightning clients, Breez does not take possession of users' funds, empowering users to be their own banks. It achieves this through the use of a forked version of lnd and Neutrino, running a full Lightning node under the hood.
Breez simplifies the technical complexity of Bitcoin transactions by automating operations like channel creation and routing, making it accessible to a broad audience. The app includes unique features like a Point-of-Sale mode for merchants and a next-generation podcast player for users, showcasing its versatility.

On-Chain Transactions: Through Submarine Swaps, Breez supports seamless on-chain transactions, maintaining a unified balance in Lightning channels. This simplifies the user experience by eliminating the need for managing separate balances for on-chain and Lightning transactions.
Enhanced Privacy and Security: Utilizing Neutrino for chain information fetching and including a background watcher for channel monitoring, Breez provides better privacy and security compared to current alternatives. It alerts users to any cheating attempts, adding an extra layer of protection.
Merchant and Podcaster Friendly: With its Point-of-Sale mode and podcast player, Breez caters to a wide range of users, from merchants looking to accept Lightning payments to podcast listeners wanting to support content creators directly.
Given its blend of user-centric features, security measures, and innovative use of the Lightning network, Breez represents a significant step forward for anyone interested in the practical use of Bitcoin in daily transactions and content consumption.

👩👧👦 Bitcoin for Kids
We love the Tuttle Twins Bitcoin cartoons. Here, Connor Boyack, the creator of Tuttle Twins and author of 30 books, talks about how the cartoon series came to be.
🎧 & 🎥 Vibe of the Week
Must-Listen Podcast: 🎧 This week we caught up with Carri Cee, host of the Bitcoin People podcast.
We talked about:
✅ Her Bitcoin journey
✅ Why we are here
✅ Spirituality 🌟
About Carri: Carri was 30 years self-employed as a presentation skills coach 🎤 until going through the longest lockdowns in the world 🌍 in Melbourne, Australia, which decimated her business at the time.
In seeking a new income 💰, she followed a friend into crypto trading 📈 and, in short order, got rekt 😵.
So began her bitcoin journey 🔸. In the midst of the darkness, she noticed a small orange light 🟠 that shone through the hearts ❤️🔥 and minds 🧠 of bitcoin educators, and before she knew it, she’d seen the light 💡 and become a full-blown bitcoiner, class of 2021 🎓.
By the end of 2022, she was deep down the rabbit hole 🕳️, connecting with other bitcoiners, a member of the Libertarian Party of Australia 🇦🇺, and had started her own podcast, ‘Bitcoin People’ 🎧.
She has entirely failed at orange pilling 🍊 her husband and son but continues to work on them.
