My guest today is Phil Geiger, the managing director of concierge services at Unchained Capital. Unchained Capital is a blockchain financial services company that lends cash to long-term crypto holders. It offers cash loans to long-term cryptocurrency holders in a secure, fast, and transparent manner, backed by multi-signature cold-storage custody solution. The company was founded in 2017 and is headquartered in Austin, TX. Phil is the managing director of concierge services at Unchained Capital. His team teaches clients how to hold the private keys to multisignature addresses in the personal, retirement, and business contexts. Prior to joining the Bitcoin space, Phil spent a lot of time in the healthcare space. Phil was a PM at Epic, a software and IT company focused on building products and services for the Healthcare industry. Phil is a Bitcoiner, before joining Unchained, he regularly helped curious people try Bitcoin by teaching the economics that describe it. He gave educational presentations for beginners, provided one-on-one consulting, wrote featured articles for publications, and contribute meaningfully to the discussion on social media. His technical contributions include running a full v0.17.1 BTC node plus LND (ran BIP148), contributing to BTC fork claimer python script testing, and testing Éclair and LND Lightning nodes. Phil even developed a safe process for claiming 25 Bitcoin forks, and advised where and how to sell most of them. My conversation with Phil is a must listen for anyone interested in understanding Bitcoin-native financial services or the philosophical aspects of Bitcoin. In our discussion we cover how Unchained Capital is building tools to empower Bitcoiners, why Bitcoin is the perfect money, the Cantillon Effect, why Central Banking is unAmerican and much more. Phil explains how Unchained Capital gives their clients access to self-custody Bitcoin Roth IRAs and how Unchained Capital structures their company to never be the single point of failure for their clients. Phil goes on to discuss the differences between Bitcoin Financial Services and DeFi. We get into a deep discussion about the growing impact Bitcoin and Bitcoiners are having on mainstream society. Another important topic we discussed is how the principles behind Bitcoin are fundamentally American and how principles of Central Banking are inherently communist. We finish our conversation by discussing how Unchained Capital's Bitcoin-backed Loan service works and how Unchained is building the safest Bitcoin native financial service platform for Bitcoiners.
