Special Bitcoin Event: Zuby – Sound money, Financial self-sovereignty & Freedom

October 5 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Zuby is an independent rapper, author, podcast host, public speaker and creative entrepreneur, with over 1.5 million followers on social media. He was born in England, raised in Saudi Arabia and is a graduate of Oxford University. He’s also a Bitcoiner and has advocated for it extensively.

He has sold tens of thousands of albums independently, performed in 8 countries, and gained 20 million+ online video views. His podcast ‘Real Talk with Zuby’ has surpassed 3 million downloads and reaches thousands of listeners every week.

Zuby has featured on The Joe Rogan Experience, BBC, Fox News, Sky News, The Adam Carolla Show, The Rubin Report, The Candace Owens Show and The Ben Shapiro Show, amongst others. He has made countless mainstream media and podcast appearances articulating his common-sense yet heterodox world views, epitomising a maxim often attributed George Orwell: “*Speaking the truth* in times of universal deceit is a *revolutionary act*,”.

This evening will feature a panel discussion with Zuby as well as our local roster of Bitcoin experts. Topic: Sound money, Financial self-sovereignty & Freedom. There is plenty to discuss here including:

* The rise of authoritarianism and the threats to liberty posed by Central Bank Digital Currencies and other worldwide events
* The importance of truly decentralised systems and how Bitcoin achieves this with the most important system of all: Money
* How and why Bitcoin plays the “long game”, encouraging “low time preference” behaviour vs the short-term and “move fast and break things” mentality of fiat money and altcoins
* Bitcoin scarcity vs altcoin saturation
* “Steel-manning” Bitcoin against common objections from both extremes; no-coiners to the “blockchain not Bitcoin” crowd.

There will be plenty of opportunity for the audience to put their own questions to Zuby and the panel too.

PLEASE RSVP ASAP BUT DO NOT RSVP UNLESS YOU INTEND TO ATTEND. PLEASE UPDATE YOUR RSVP IF YOU CAN NO LONGER ATTEND. This is likely to be a popular event and accurate numbers will be necessary to ensure we have a Sydney CBD venue of sufficient size, which we will add to the details here closer to the date.

This will be a combined event with the Blockchain Sydney meetup and a great opportunity to bring Bitcoin to an audience who often have had surprisingly little exposure to it and relieve them of many of the misconceptions that may have caused them to chase alternative “projects”.
