How Central Planners Could Encourage More Geographic Distribution Of Bitcoin Podcasts

DEI and 15 minute city policies could help to geographically distribute the Bitcoin podcasting ecosystem leading to further decentralization of Bitcoin. While many people are against CBDCs, programmable money could be used to restrict V4V transactions in certain jurisdictions due to an over saturation of podcasts in that location.

As a stop gap until full CBDC adoption, V4V protocols could switch to using USDC and Tether as a stop gap. The issuers of both stablecoins could act as benevolent overseers of the V4V transactions by restricting podcasters that are in too close of a proximity of other already established Bitcoin podcasters. There is a real danger of Bitcoin podcasts becoming too geographically centralized, leading to a complete takeover of PODCONF and only one uninclusive narrative taking it's place.

Tether and Circle could work with V4V podcasting platforms like Fountain and Breez to make sure that the podcasters IP address is not located to close to another podcaster. The proposed distance needed to prevent this is for each podcaster to live at least 15 minutes away from the next closest podcaster.

The bull market presents a serious potential issue for an over saturation of Bitcoin podcasters, and policies implemented by Central Planners could make sure that there is continued signal instead of just more noise. Podcast sponsors could be ranked by their geographic distribution scores based on the podcasts they sponsor, similar to ESG scores that many Fortune 500 companies proudly display on their sites.

This focus on influencing podcast sponsors could bring a whole new level of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion to the Bitcoin podcasting ecosystem, leading to a bull run in areas where podcasts have yet to pop up. In the US, there are many rural communities without Bitcoin podcasters, and outside the US there is a lot of development that could be increased by these policies.

If for whatever reason, the podcaster is a Bitcoin maximalist, and uses only custodial lightning for V4V transactions, Lightning Service Providers could be leaned on to ensure compliance to the proposed DEI policies. The first step of being able to enforce this would be stringent KYC which fortunately is being adopted more and more by companies interacting with lightning like Cash App and Coinbase.

The ruling class has determined that the future organization of society will consist of 15 minute cities and it is important to be looking for ways to comply with their standards, as well as trying to keep Bitcoin generally decentralized.
