The Miami City Commission just voted in favor of accepting $4.3 million in protocol contributions generated by MiamiCoin, which is built on top of bitcoin.

Today marks a huge day for Miami, and a milestone for crypto.
MiamiCoin mining (the first of many @minecitycoins) generated this initial $4.3 million contribution in just over 1 month since launch.

Even better: This isn't just a one-time donation: Total contributions continue to grow as the MiamiCoin protocol continues to gain usage.
.@minecitycoins is leading the way out of the crypto casino, and straight into crypto civilization.

Importantly, MiamiCoin — and all future CityCoins — are built on Bitcoin via @stacks.

This gives all CityCoins superpowers.
Miami will initially convert their crypto earnings into USD.

But, if and when they can legally accept crypto, they can:

- Earn crypto rewards from miners mining MiamiCoin
- Stack those rewards to earn BTC and begin building a Bitcoin treasury
In a nutshell: @minecitycoins affords cities an incredible way to add BTC to their balance sheet by creating their own open-source city protocol.

CityCoins was launched by the community with no pre-mine or ICO, and is a shining example of what’s possible building on Bitcoin.

Incentives drive the world.

This concept is frequently cited, but rarely productized.

I'm fascinated by how prediction markets can change that.

A few thoughts 👇🏼👇🏼👇🏼
We live in a world where "truth" has become highly controversial and debatable.

One idea is to financially incentivize the crowd to identify the truth.

This type of mechanism can essentially tell people to "put up or shut up."
Information markets like those on @PolymarketHQ let users make a return for correctly forecasting future events.

If you truly believe something is going to happen, you can risk capital on it.

If you're right, you win. If you're wrong, you lose.

The market is the referee.

The single most important thing to teach a child is how to think, rather than what to think.

We need more independent thinkers, problem solvers, and entrepreneurs in this world.

@synthesischool is a no brainer for every parent.

1/ The legacy education system was built for producing factory workers that simply did what they were told.

Young kids are ill-equipped for the dynamic, digital world that makes up modern society.

We don't need factory workers. We need problem solvers:
2/ The school system literally tells young kids to sit down, don't move around, and be quiet.

It goes against everything a child naturally wants to do.

@synthesischool is pioneering a new way to give your child the tools they need to succeed:

Companies across the country are raising their prices in order to combat rising costs.

There is nothing transitory about these price hikes.

Here are a few examples 👇🏽👇🏽👇🏽
Chipotle knows inflation is real:

- Increased wages to $15/hour
- Increased prices about 4%
- Q2 revenue higher than pre-pandemic

“There’s still that possibility that we could take additional pricing action to fully close the gap...So far, really, really good." - Chipotle CFO
Whirlpool won't be left behind:

“We are confident that sustained strong consumer demand and our previously announced cost-based pricing actions will offset the impact of global supply constraints and rising input costs." - CEO

Raw materials go up = Prices go up. Simple math.

If Peter Thiel's $5BN Roth makes him The Lord of the Roths, William Roth is the Rothfather.

Today would have been William Roth's 100th birthday. In 1998, he created the ultimate (tax-free) 3rd stack for future bitcoiners -- the Roth IRA.
2/ The former US Senator believed that if you work hard, save, and invest you should keep more of your hard-earned money.

So he pushed until we got an account from which US citizens can invest, tax-free; an incredibly powerful investing tool - and an incredible way to HODL.
3/ So powerful that Investing legend Peter Thiel was recently highlighted for (legally) accumulating a $5 billion tax-free Roth IRA.

Thread on how he did it here:

The lack of financial education in our country should be a national emergency.

Just as young people are becoming interested in investing, the legacy system is mocking & ridiculing them.

Monday that changes.

We're going to build the world's largest business show :)
We'll be streaming live every weekday.

No nonsense. No corporate talking points. We're not journalists. We have skin in the game.

We'll tell you what is happening, why, and exactly what we're doing with our own money.

The game has changed. Subscribe:…
I have no clue what this will grow into, but I know that the average person is struggling to understand why they can't seem to get ahead.

They feel like the game is rigged, but the system is working exactly as designed.

Financial education is the great equalizer.
