For the past year, bitcoin’s narrative has been deeply tied to the larger macro narrative of looming inflation. As the economy starts to boom, many continue to point to the spectre of inflation as a bullish force for bitcoin.

In today’s episode, NLW explores growing confidence in the markets and what it means for bitcoin. In particular, he looks at what it would mean if consumer inflation didn’t show up. Would bitcoin be cast aside, or are there properties and uses that make it relevant even outside its role as a monetary hedge?
