Have you had the chance to read Jeff Booth’s, The Price of Tomorrow? His basic premise is that continued technological advances will accelerate deflation and this require a deflationary money like Bitcoin, and that to avoid social chaos UBI will become necessary. It would be interesting to read your review of the book.
I think you might also enjoy Layered Money, by Nik Bhatia. Also on case you missed it, Nic Carter recently published a very detailed look at Bitcoin energy usage here on Medium.
