Why 'Peer-Reviewed' Research Is Key for Bitcoin's Mass-Adoption:
The reality is that without peer-reviewed research, altering the narrative around Bitcoin remains a challenge. Lawmakers and regulators are often skeptical of our claims without solid evidence. These claims include:
- Bitcoin can mitigate methane emissions
- Bitcoin is beneficial for renewables
- Bitcoin can balance the power grid
We've seen evidence of these claims, like the partnership between Nodal Power and Marathon in Utah to clean up methane at a landfill. However, to convince busy lawmakers and regulators, peer-reviewed research is essential.
The Role of Peer-Reviewed Research in Validating Bitcoin's Benefits:
This research acts as a credibility stamp for our claims about Bitcoin. The newly published Bitcoin research agenda is critical in this respect.
The Importance of the Research Agenda:
The Bitcoin space currently has few researchers, partly due to its novelty and lack of incentives. This research agenda aims to change that by identifying the needs of both the industry and lawmakers, thus creating better incentives for research.
Researchers are driven by career advancement and real-world impact. Demonstrating a demand for Bitcoin research by lawmakers creates a strong incentive for researchers to focus in this area. When their work influences policy, it significantly boosts their career.
Our Concern and Your Role:
With this agenda in place, we anticipate a surge in researchers interested in Bitcoin, but funding remains a concern. This is where you come in. Satoshi Action Education is ready to support these researchers, but our resources are limited.
Your Contribution Can Make a Difference:
By donating $10, $50, $100, $250, $500, $1,000, $5,000, or any amount you choose, you can enable critical Bitcoin research that could profoundly impact the technology's narrative and accelerate mass adoption. With $50,000, we can fund essential research; $100,000 would allow for a significant output of papers and articles, potentially transforming the narrative around Bitcoin.
It's in our hands to reshape the conversation around Bitcoin. Together, we can make a difference in the world of Bitcoin mining.
