Podcast series about the creation of different forms of money

As part of my podcast Bitcoin, Fiat & Rock’n’Roll, I have produced a series (in German) about the creation of money. I start with common forms of money such as central bank money and bank money (Buchgeld). In later episodes, I talk about more “esoteric” forms of money such as Libra, Bitcoin, and Gold.

The series aims to give you an understanding of our current monetary system and how new forms of money relate to it. The podcast is in German. You can find the series below and on most of the relevant podcast apps.

Part 1: Zentralbankgeld

Part 2: Buchgeld

Part 3: Libra

Part 4: Bitcoin
