T- Thoughts
“The government wants to fool its people by doubling the minimum wage but at the same time printing more than enough money into circulation. We can’t solve problems by creating more problem for generations to come which is why Bitcoin and some other decentralized finance applications powered by blockchain technology looks to be our only hope of creating a better future.” 
― Olawale Daniel
I’ve been thinking and following each day about the future of money, cryptocurrency, and just the new category of DeFi (Decentralized Finance). Honestly, it’s so complicated that I have no business even discussing it in the sense that I "know” more than you.
That being said, I think it’s important as currencies like Bitcoin and Ethereum gain more traction. Remember, money is a story. That’s it. If we all wake up tomorrow and declare the US dollar worthless. Well, it’s worthless.
Here is the future of DeFi in a simple graphic:
This new technology is going to disrupt so much and create so many interesting opportunities especially as it relates to land. I can envision the end of title work by just using smart contracts on the ethereum blockchain to close transactions.
I think traditional lending is going to be disrupted. Check out Compound
I think traditional insurance is going to be disrupted. Check out Cover
I think assets stored in traditional banks will be burdened by barriers to exit and confiscation risk. DeFi enables yield farming and strong property rights.
Here are some interesting opportunities I’m exploring now:
I think if this is new to you like it is to me, it’s worth learning more. Here is where I got educated and I’m always learning more:
 A Beginner’s Guide to DeFi • A primer on key areas of DeFi including stablecoins, insurance, and exchanges. 
These are early days and the risks are high and the volatility in these cryptocurrencies is insane. That being said, here are the key takeaways from what I’m learning:
  • DeFi is unstoppable. There’s no single point of failure. Nations that attempt to ban crypto set citizens behind culturally and financially. 
  • We’re living in a lag. Strong property rights, programmable money, and permissionless loans are here. Awareness isn’t evenly distributed.
  • DeFi is antifragile. Hacks strengthen the system. Bans prove the need for DeFi. Like a Hydra, when one head is cut off, two grow in its place.
If this is too geeky for you I promise next week will be much more technical, traditional, and more philosophical! Nevertheless, awareness of these changes is so important and we need to be educated so we can spot the opportunities and areas where we as land investors can build more passive income and wealth.
Ultimately, we are not in the land business. Land investing is just the best vehicle I’ve found to create wealth and passive income. We are in the total freedom business.

Episode Notes
Joining Mark this week are:
  • Scott Bossman
  • Tate Litchfield
  • Teria Harris
  • Scott Todd
Listen in as they go around the table and discuss some of the ways in which they have seen people complicate the process of land investing.
Teria: I was looking to solve a problem and the issue was, we wanted to kind of pull our buyer’s list and we were looking for a nice quick way to have a form generated. So I found this old website called, they will create like 3-4 minutes max landing page forms. There’s a trial period, I think it’s $9- $19 a year after the initial period. There are samples in there, just add your graphics, logo, and your information and from there you can get a form.
