Tuur Demeester, Bitcoin thought leader and economist, joins Charlie Shrem on this week’s episode of Untold Stories. Tuur begins with a powerful comparison between Bitcoin today and the internet's Windows 95 moment when a critical threshold of people may begin to use and adopt it in 2020.

The conversation shifts to academia and the challenges facing the traditional university system in the next decades. Charlie and Tuur discuss Austrian economics, the levers of governmental power, and triggers of Bitcoin growth. Charlie confronts Tuur with his 2015 predictions of Bitcoin's development which are remarkably accurate and they discuss today's perspective.

Finally, Charlie and Tuur discuss coping and survival mechanisms, challenging your irrational thoughts, and dealing with toxicity.
