This weekly podcast about Bitcoin is the initiative of the Viennese financial journalist Niko Jilch. The goal: to strengthen and network the German-speaking Bitcoin community - and to bring the Bitcoin phenomenon closer to as broad a mass as possible.
We accompany this project as one of the main sponsors in this blog and also make all podcast episodes available here as a video.
Peter Taschler comes - he says so himself - "from the last valley in South Tyrol". And yet the big world of money reached him early. In the 1970s, when inflation was on the rise. And in the 1980s, when his father did not get a promised loan because interest rates had risen.
"On the farm, you learn that you can only harvest what you've sown before. And that trees don't grow to the sky," he says.
From September 15 to 17, 2022, he will host the largest Bitcoin conference in the German-speaking region so far. The BTC22 will take place in Innsbruck, Tyrol and numerous renowned speakers and Bitcoin experts are expected! Among them are Microstrategy CEO Michael Saylor and bestselling author Saifedean Ammous.
But the South Tyrolean has truly come a long way before he arrived at Bitcoin. From the mountain farm to Innsbruck, from the founding of the company on September 11, 2001 to the financial crisis in 2008, which brought him to gold - and to the Corona crisis, which finally made him a Bitcoiner.
He tells his story in the podcast: from the farm to Bitcoin - and to the realization: "Very few people think about money. But you have to think about it. And talk about it."
Niko Jilch is a financial journalist, speaker and moderator. He has been dealing with our monetary and financial system, inflation, central banks, gold and of course Bitcoin for more than ten years. His ongoing column "Young Money" is published at the digital business medium "Brutkasten".
