Junseth’s World Episode 37: Ambien Dreaming to the Third Realm
PSA: Opinions expressed on Junseth’s World may or may not be the result of Ambien consumption by at least one of the show’s hosts. However that doesn’t stop Junseth, Dante and Shawn discussing everything from the week’s crypto news, Visa’s amazing uptime, Bitcorns and crypto-collectibles, Beanie Babies, criminal asset forfeiture, Lambos, governments… and, of course, the ethics of Bitcoin mining.

Police Lambos and Worthless Tokens
Junseth continues to rail against Bitcoin miners who will inevitably destroy small rural communities — people who want nothing more than to enjoy their subsidized electricity in peace. Dante says it’s unfair to call them “energy pirates” if they’re paying the market rate, but there’s debate over who actually “owns” a country’s energy resources, and who gets to decide its best use. Could an “energy neutrality” debate be next on the horizon?
Why does Florida’s Broward County have a Lamborghini police car? Who donated it and what did they expect in return for their generosity? And do criminal asset forfeitures in the U.S. create a perverse incentive for police to target suspected crimes by people with nice stuff?
Listen to the full episode for that and much more, including why crypto exchanges’ KYC policies could be a trap, why Junseth still collects Beanie Babies, and why it could be profitable to simply follow what Dan Larimer and Charles Hoskinson are up to now. Unlike Ambien, this episode will definitely not put anyone to sleep.
For the Uninitiated: WTF Is Junseth’s World?
JW hosts Junseth, Dante and Shawn are Bitcoin’s Florida Men. They don’t always agree but, when things get heated, it’s usually due to prescription medication.
Spawned from the greater Miami area blockchain scene, the three reluctant sitcom housemates embody that region’s unique approach to business. They’ve seen and done things for Bitcoin you probably never imagined … and some you wished you could un-imagine.
Somewhere in the mix, you actually get a good education and some surprisingly useful insights into the world of finance, trading, business and economics. Subscribe to the entire series on Soundcloud.
