What Bitcoin Did #55 The Bullish Case For Bitcoin With Vijay Boyapati

Dec 11, 2018

Description:

'œBitcoin is like gold but with this magical ability that you can teleport it.'

'" Vijay Boyapati

Interview location: Skype

Interview date: Tuesday 4th Dec, 2018

Project: Bitcoin :)

Bitcoin is a survivor. In the 10 years of the protocol, Bitcoin has survived the collapse of Mt. Gox, the closing of the Silk Road, the banning of Bitcoin by the Chinese government and relentless attacks from politicians, economists and journalists.

With each attack, the Bitcoin immune system gets stronger, and with each market cycle, the infrastructure grows. In the last two years the network market cap peaked at nearly $300bn, futures have arrived, custody solutions have improved, and Lightning Network is in beta with a rapidly growing capacity.

The potential of the Bitcoin network is enormous, and the Lightning Network offers scale which the base layer has been unable to provide. Together, Bitcoin can be both a global settlement layer for digital gold and a payment network better than the current fiat system.

Vijay Boyapati highlighted the potential with his article The Bullish Case for Bitcoin, making a case for why it is the hardest form of money and the best store of value. In this interview, we discuss the originals of the article, why Bitcoin is so important and why we should be bullish about its future.

Distributed Dialogues EP #11 - The Data Death Star

Dec 10, 2018

Description:

"Your healthcare data's sold, it's being sold for tons of money every year. People are making tons of money on it. You should be getting a cut, you should be getting rewarded for that."

'" Kamal Obbad

Data could quite possibly be the buzz-word of the 21st century. This is especially true in terms of health data, which is what this episode is all about. As a topic, health data is a behemoth not unlike the Death Star; so, we spend time in this episode pulling it apart piece by piece, and in the end, we may just have a happy ending via a hard to find thermal exhaust port...or at least blockchain technology.

What Bitcoin Did #54 VanEck's Gabor Gurbacs on Bringing a Bitcoin ETF to Market

Dec 7, 2018

Description:

'œIt should be less burdensome to get an innovative asset to market. The world is moving fast and we need regulatory support to keep newer technologies in the US.'

'" Gabor Gurbacs

Interview location: Skype

Interview date: Sunday 2nd Dec, 2018

Project: VanEck/MVIS

Role: Director, Digital Assets Strategy

The crypto bear market has been felt by many. From traders to miners, the fall in prices has led many to lose a significant amount of money. The fall in prices has also impacted companies and projects: GigaWatt has filed for bankruptcy, ETCDEV - an Ethereum Classic team has shut down, and many others are facing challenges times.

Institutions have regularly been cited as a potential end to the bear market, yet ICE's Bakkt has delayed the launch of their Bitcoin settled futures until January 24th '˜19 and the SEC continues to either delay their decision or deny every application for an ETF. Only yesterday, the VanEck application, the remaining open application was delayed until February, the deadline for deciding on the application.

Jay Clayton, Chairman of the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, recently spoke at Consensus: Invest about ETFs, highlighting his and the concerns of others within the SEC. All do not share these concerns, Commissioner Peirce dissented in response to the rejection of the Winklevoss denied application and spoke to The What Bitcoin Did Podcast about her concerns that the SEC is overstepping their mandate, stating 'œBy precluding approval of cryptocurrency-based ETPs for the foreseeable future, the Commission is engaging in merit regulation.'

Gabor Gurbacs, Director, Digital Assets Strategy at VanEck/MVIS shares Hester's frustration, telling me that America wants a Bitcoin ETF and that a Bitcoin ETF faces a higher bar than other markets. In this interview, we discuss the VanEck application, why market manipulation is not unique to Bitcoin and the unfair standards by which the SEC treats Bitcoin.

Technology & Choice #40, Ayurveda Technology, with Vaidya Lokesh Rathuri

Dec 6, 2018

Description:

Ayurveda is a practice for maintaining and restoring health with origins dating back 10,000 years. It has been practiced consistently since. Might there be something to learn here? Might it offer choices for health and healing which are not available in the modes and institutions which most of us are used to?

I recently had the privilege of meeting and interviewing a Vaidya (practitioner/doctor) of Ayurveda, Lokesh Rathuri. He presents the basic understandings on which Ayurveda is built, in a way that opens the subject for a beginning understanding. It is a different view than most in the West are used to. You get to decide where there is merit there to warrant further exploration. We also discuss the interface of eastern and western practices and how they can inform each other's understanding and practice.

What Bitcoin Did #53 Grin's Michael Cordner aka Yeastplume on Implementing Mimblewimble

Dec 4, 2018

Description:

'œThere may be a few people who genuinely think a deflationary currency is the way to go, nobody on the Grin team does.'

'" Michael Corder (Yeastplume)

Interview location: Skype

Interview date: Friday 30th Nov, 2018

Project: Grin

Role: Developer

Outside of the most hardcore Bitcoin maximalists, there are some who respect a minimal number of alternative cryptocurrency projects. My experience in creating this podcast is that you find some who say they are maximalists, but Monero is cool, or that Decred is interesting.

The ability to command respect is usually steeped in a currencies foundation sharing characteristics of Bitcoin:

An anonymous founder

A focus on decentralisation

A monetary policy which does not enrich the founders and developers

No premine

One such project which has sparked interest is Grin's implementation of Mimblewimble, a new coin which attempts to solve some of the privacy and scaling issues of Bitcoin.

On August 2nd, 2016, Tom Elvis Jedusor, a contributor to the Bitcoin Wizards IRC channel dropped his whitepaper, describing a blockchain with a radically different approach to transaction construction from Bitcoin. In October 2016, Andrew Poelstra from Blockstream completed his analysis of the whitepaper and dropped a position paper filling in some of the gaps from the original paper to make precise the idea.

In the middle of November, Ignotus Peverell, another anonymous developer, appeared on the same IRC channel with a link to GitHub with an implementation of Mimblewimble, and this is how Grin was born.

Fast forward to today and Grin has launched its fourth testnet and is preparing to launch its mainnet in January of next year.

In this interview I talk with Michael Cordner, aka Yeastplume, a developer working on the Grin implementation of Mumblewimble, we discuss why Grin is acceptable for some Bitcoiners, their approach to monetary policy and governance, and how to mine Grin.

#264 Nick Sullivan: Cloudflare - The Internet's (De)centralized Security Blanket

Dec 4, 2018

Description:

We enter dozens of trust relationships ever time we interact with the Web. Browsers, ISPs, DNS providers, cloud hosting companies, all the way down to the handful of people who control certificate root keys; we rely on the integrity of these intermediaries to serve reliable, and accurate information. The concentration of power by any one of these actors threatens to compromise the very foundational principles of the Web. Decentralized technologies, like Bitcoin, Ethereum, Tor, and IPFS seek to reverse this trend.

We're joined by Nick Sullivan, Chief Cryptographer at Cloudflare. Founded less than 10 years ago, the company offers content delivery services (CND), DNS, and DDoS protection to over 12 million websites. The company contributes to open source cryptography libraries, some of which are used by Etherum. They recently launched an IPFS gateway and features which allow users to have strong guarantees as to the integrity of the content.

Topics discussed in this episode:

Nick's background as a cryptographer and previous position at AppleThe Internet's infrastructure and trust modelHow Cloudflare is experimenting with IPFSThe challenges to hosting static websites with IPFSCloudflare's Onion routing service (Tor) and the benefits to usersThe Roughtime protocol and encrypted SNICloudflare's contribution to open-source cryptography librariesThe vulnerabilities of DNS and Cloudflare's free private DNS service (1.1.1.1)

What Bitcoin Did #52 Exploring Crypto Narratives With Nathaniel Whittemore

Nov 30, 2018

Description:

'œThe business model for surveillance, which can be used for ill, is advertising.'

'" Nathaniel Whittemore

Interview location: Skype

Interview date: Wednesday 28th Nov, 2018

Company: NLW & CO

Role: Lead

The crypto industry is blessed with many smart thinkers and content producers. Across Twitter, Medium, news sites and blogs there is a regular supply of thought pieces and analysis where contributors speculate on the future of the industry.

There are often opposing views which can stretch to disagreements and impassioned debates. Keeping up with all this content can be difficult, which is why Nathaniel Whittemore's Long Reads Sunday has become an essential follow for anyone in the industry.

Nathaniel carefully curates all the news, articles and discussions into a super thread of threads on Twitter where he carefully knits together the narratives from the week into a coherent story.

Nathaniel came on the podcast this week to discuss Long Reads Sunday and other key narratives, from the problems with crypto marketing to how technology is advancing faster than society can adapt.

What Bitcoin Did #51 The Future of Banking with Zac Prince

Nov 27, 2018

Description:

'œI think the term bank won't be used so much when we are talking about banking services 20 years from now.'

'" Zac Prince

Interview location: New York

Interview date: Wednesday 21st Nov, 2018

Company: BlockFi

Role: Founder and CEO

A sign of the maturing market is the growth of traditional financial products built for cryptocurrencies. Both the corporate and retail financial sectors understand the benefits of crypto, and thus a range of companies and institutions are bringing products to market.

One of these such companies is BlockFi who offer loans backed by cryptocurrencies. BlockFi recognised that there are crypto holders who want to use the value of their crypto without selling and therefore provide loans which are collateralised with Bitcoin, Litecoin and Ether.

BlockFi also recognises that the future of banking may be very different from the high street retail banking experience of today. The company is arguably a bank, if not, then they are at least a competitor, able to offer a growing range of financial products to a global customer base. While some people do not like stablecoins, BlockFi can utilise them to provide financial products to customers in emerging markets who want access to dollar loans.

In this interview, I chat with BlockFi Founder and CEO Zac Prince about why he is building BlockFi, what the future of banking with Bitcoin looks like and how BlockFi is building new products to service a financial world which includes cryptocurrencies.

#263 Justin Drake: Ethereum's Audacious Roadmap to Build a True World Computer

Nov 27, 2018

Description:

The Ethereum vision has always been to create a world computer. But its scalability and performance limitations have meant that it has fallen far short of that vision. Yet, work on scaling Ethereum has exploded in breadth and complexity over the past years. From variants of PoS, to Plasma / Plasma Cash, sharding, EWASM, BLS signatures, everything has been on the table. While confusing on the surface, underneath a coherent vision for a new Ethereum that will scale near infinitely has emerged.

We were joined by Ethereum Researcher Justin Drake to discuss the Ethereum Serenity vision, its core components and the roadmap ahead. A particular focus was the beacon chain, the role of randomness and Verifiable Delay Functions.

Topics discussed in this episode:

Justin's previous project building on top of Open BazaarWhy he made the switch from application development to Ethereum consensus researchThe high-level vision for Ethereum 2.0 / SerenityThe Ethereum Serenity roadmap to scaling the world computer by 1m timesThe crucial role of the beacon chainThe difference between Ethereum Serenity and PolkadotThe role of randomness in making Ethereum Serenity workThe limitations of existing trustless sources of randomnessHow Verifiable Delay Functions can be used to create better randomnessThe Ethereum Foundation plans to develop an open-source VDF ASIC

What Bitcoin Did #50 Crypto Regulations With The SEC's Hester Peirce

Nov 24, 2018

Description:

'œJust because you are calling something Crypto does not mean you can ignore the rules we have had in place for years, but I do think we also need to be willing to open the doors a little bit wider for innovation.'

'" Hester Peirce

Interview location: Washington

Interview date: Tuesday 20th Nov, 2018

Organization: U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission

Role: Commissioner

As the market for cryptocurrencies has grown, so has the oversight from the various regulators who manage the different aspects of the financial markets. Specifically, the SEC has been monitoring, responding to and enforcing the rules by which they regulate the financial markets.

While the SEC initially took a hands-off approach to cryptocurrencies, they have been increasingly providing guidance as to how they view the different parts of the crypto space. From enforcement action against ICOs which are deemed unregistered securities to ruling on proposed rule changes to allow the trade of Bitcoin ETPs, it is becoming clearer that just because a project is a cryptocurrency, it can't sidestep the rules which have been in place for decades.

The Commission has yet to approve any ETP, so far, rejecting every application. Commissioner Peirce, a vocal proponent of supporting innovation, dissented after the SEC disapproved the proposed rule change to list and trade shares of the Winklevoss Bitcoin Trust on Bats BZX Exchange, Inc.

'œI reject the role of gatekeeper of innovation'"a role very different from (and, indeed, inconsistent with) our mission of protecting investors, fostering capital formation, and facilitating fair, orderly, and efficient markets. Accordingly, I dissent.'

'" Taken from Commissioner Peirce's dissent statement

I was invited by Hester to visit the SEC, and we discussed the role of the Commission, how they make decisions and why she dissented.

What Bitcoin Did #49 The Freedom To Innovate With Peter Van Valkenburgh

Nov 23, 2018

Description:

'œA system of money that can move millions of dollars across borders are going to have some uses which are unsavory, it is also going to make the world freer, better and a buttress for human dignity.'

'" Peter Van Valkenburgh

Interview location: Washington

Interview date: Tuesday 20th Nov, 2018

Company: Coin Center

Role: Research Director

In the age of financial surveillance, cryptocurrencies have created a headache for regulators. The ability to move value, across the world without any intermediary has many benefits to society but can sidestep state-level regulations. Further, the ICO boom has created new forms of capital creation and regulators have been watching the space closely.

Coin Center recognizes the benefit of preserving the freedom to innovate with these permissionless public blockchains such as Bitcoin and Ethereum, and they support this by:

Producing and publishing policy research from respected academics and experts

Educating policymakers and the media about blockchain technology

Engaging in advocacy for sound public policy

In this interview, I talk with Coin Center's Research Director, Peter Van Valkenburgh about the complexities of state v federal legislation and how they work with policymakers to support public blockchain innovation.

#262 Brian Behlendorf: Hyperledger - From Blockchain Hype to Production Networks

Nov 20, 2018

Description:

Most observers of the ecosystem will probably agree that 2015-2017 were the years of the enterprise blockchain. It was during that time that many startups catering to enterprise were founded and funded, including Monax and Stratumn (where Brian and Sebastien previously worked). For the permissioned blockchain camp, adoption would come in the form of enterprise use cases, arguing that public networks carried too much risk, and lacked needed features like privacy. While much of the hype has subsided, large companies in every sector are forming consortia and leveraging blockchain to provide better process traceability and transparency, and reduce their reliance on third parties.

We're joined by Brian Behlendorf, Executive Director of Hyperledger. When Brian was last on the show, he had recently started his role at the Linux Foundation. Now, two years later, Hyperledger has gone from a nascent project to a mature ecosystem of technologies with hundreds of members. With dozens of networks in production, and backed by companies like IBM, Hyperleger is the most widely used blockchain technology for permissioned networks.

Topics discussed in this episode:

The most important developments in Hyperledger in the last two yearsHyperledger's family of technologiesProduction networks on HyperledgerHow Hyperledger Fabric differs from Tendermint and EthereumThe evolution of the enterprise blockchain ecosystemThe separation between the permissioned and public blockchain ecosystemsIndustry use cases for Hyperledger FabricBrian's skepticism about ICOs and tokensThe growing Hyperledger community and upcoming Global Forum in Basel this December

The Third Web #11 - Scuttlebutt & Cypherspace

Nov 20, 2018

Description:

Dominic Tarr is a hacker who resides on a sailboat, usually found in New Zealand's beautiful Hauraki Gulf. In recent years he has risen to fame as the creator of the Secure Scuttlebutt protocol, Scuttlebutt for short. Scuttlebutt is comprised of a standardized message format and a subjective append only log stored locally by users.

The first application has been a multi-client decentralized social media platform that is an absolute joy to use, and I encourage everyone to download my favourite desktop client, Patchwork, or Manyverse for Android. As an autonomous software system, like Bitcoin, Scuttlebutt rewards the provisioning of resources to support the network, only rather than a point system and money myth, Scuttlebutt offers something far more valuable, conversation. This mostly covers the origin of the protocol but I will definitely conduct more interviews with Dom and others close to the project, which is today one of the most impressive, and well used decentralized applications in existence.

Visit scuttlebutt.nz for more information,

https://twitter.com/thethirdweb

@ecfGe81VMJ3iko5++/KfD51omfNtLSd50nS1omUyj/Y=.ed25519

History of Secure ScuttlebuttThe name is coincidental. It comes from an old amazon paper describing a subsystem of the amazon dynamo database that used a gossip protocol.Gossip protocols are robust because, like human gossip, messages can be passed through third parties ensuring that if a network is disrupted communication can still take place.However as the message is passed from party to party there is the opportunity to manipulate its contents. This is easily countered using cryptography

What is secure scuttlebutt?Came from looking at the problem of getting two databases to store the same information.Dom was looking at building something like IPFS he called CyphernetCyberspace is the space made by signals, cypherspace is the space made by algorithmsHyperlinks tell you where to go to find a piece of information, a hash is the primary identifier in cypherspace. The hash tells you what the thing is once you have found it but not where to find it.With hyperlinks the server can give you anything. With a hash you always know you have the right thing but another system is required to help you find the thing.Dom found that in private software development there was an incentive to make poor software because that results in more billable hours for the service industryThis is because software contains a power structure encoded in itToday we live in an age of digital feudalism

From reading the Dynamo paper and learning node.js dominic became recognised as a distributed systems expert.This was the toolkit needed for the data replication he imagined.After presenting at a javascript meetup people responded wellHe got a job at a company, nearform, to build a distributed database. Through this project the idea for secure scuttlebut emerfged and dom gained the skills he needed to build itPerkeep, Cryptosphere - distributed file storage systemLearned from Cryptosphere's design philosophy that included a credit system that powered a reputation system. Realised that if this was used as a feed for a social network there was no need for the reputation system because users would only follow feeds they trusted and wanted to. This also provided sybil resistance.
Using a system like this you could separate the protocol, and information feed from the application preventing platform risk experienced by businesses building on platforms like facebook.The obvious first choice was a social media application By building a social media application the properties of the protocol could be discussed in that contextFirst contributor - Paul Frizee now works on the beaker browserPaul worked on the front end, Dom worked on the back endNow there is a large community and a number of applications using the protocolSome describe it as the internet in the early 90sConsensus Algos are slow and expensive. Dom learned this from seeing how Web 2.0 systems scaled. We should design things not to need consensus.Instead use eventual consistencyAvoid strict message ordering wherever possible. This makes the system much lighter weight.

The client ecosystemAt least 5 clients to the social network appPatchworkPatchbaypatchfooManyverse: Android client by Andre StaltzGit SSB: back end for GitAnything can be built as long as the message format supports a type field and the messages fit in 8KB

Multiple devicesSeparate client instances use different keysClients can identify themselves as belonging to the same identityIn the case of key theft the community can sort out which is the legitimate accountThis implements a variant of the web of trust model from the PGP days

Disappointment with blockchainThere is so much potential in cypherlinks - hashes and signatures - an opportunity to create a 'œthird web'In the early days of the internet everything worked so well just being free, why would you make everything cost money?Insisting on strict ordering makes it really hard to 'œget life done'

What Bitcoin Did #48 Jesse Powell is Building a Culture of Crypto Values at Kraken

Nov 16, 2018

Description:

'œIt is not just about making money. We didn't start this company to make PayPal 2.0.'

'" Jesse Powell

Interview location: Skype

Interview date: Tuesday 13th Nov, 2018

Company: Kraken

Role: CEO

Volatility in crypto is reflected in the businesses which have been built upon it. Only recently have we seen this volatility with Bitmain, where during the bull run of 2017 the business was generated $billions in revenue and profit, but as the market has corrected, both revenue and profit has seen a sharp fall.

The same can be said for exchanges, in 2017 most could not recruit support staff and engineers fast enough, but recruitment in crypto comes with risk. Exchanges are a honeypot for thieves and hackers with wallets containing vast amounts of crypto wealth. Not only must exchanges protect themselves from outside hackers but they too must be prepared for staff compromising data and wallets.

Under the leadership of Jesse Powell, Kraken has grown to a global team of over 800 people. To ensure smooth operations, Kraken must recruit the right people and develop robust processes to protect the security of the company, while ensuring that they maintain a healthy culture.

As an old-school, early days crypto enthusiast, Jesse has led by example, rebelling against the BitLicense and donating $2m to Coin Center to ensure regulations do not swamp the industry.

In this interview, I talk to Jesse about the journey he has been on growing Kraken, the challenges of building an exchange and broader industry issues from regulation to mainstream journalism.

'" Francis Pouliot

Interview location: Skype

Interview date: Wednesday 7th Nov, 2018

Company: Satoshi Portal & Bylls.com

Role: CEO

Crypto tokens have come under increasing scrutiny over a range of issues:

Are they unregistered securities?

Do they hold any intrinsic value?

Can they be a medium of exchange when prices are volatile?

Are they scams?

Francis Pouliet, CEO of Satoshi Portal, recently entered into a Twitter debate with Brave CEO and President, Brendan Eich over the BAT token. Francis questioned both the legality of the ICO and the added friction for users of the Brave browser when using BAT.

In this interview, I discuss the value of tokens with Francis, whether Brave should consider using Bitcoin, the network effect of money and why the value of all tokens will eventually go to zero.

Technology & Choice #38, The Mid-Terms Through the Looking Glass

Nov 7, 2018

Description:

A rather historical event in the United States gives us an interesting opportunity to examine a bunch important dynamics through the lens (or "Looking Glass") of Technology and Choice as a tool.

There may never have been a time, not only in the United States but the rest of the world, when we have been so connected and yet so polarized at the same time. Whether you hold to the old Chinese curse ("May you live in Interesting Times") or not, there is no question that we do live in interesting times.

While a listener may be able to guess the co-hosts' political inclinations, this episode is not about that. It's actually much more about what we all have in common, and how the interplay of technology and choice can help us understand what's happening and effectively use technology to magnify our individual and collective influence.

What Bitcoin Did #45 Fixing Online Advertising With Brendan Eich

Nov 6, 2018

Description:

'œThe system is so lacking in integrity, at least 20% of $100bn is going to fraud.'

'" Brendan Eich

Interview location: Skype

Interview date: Friday 2nd November

Company: Brave & Basic Attention Token

Role: CEO/President

The online advertising model is broken all parties are hurting:

Users encounter a degraded experience as web pages take longer to load - leading to an increase in mobile data charges

Publishers are losing revenue to fraud, and ad blockers are reducing the reach of campaigns

Advertisers lack good information on who they are advertising to, and their ads are appearing on fake websites

Brave is attempting to fix this, but not without controversy. Brave is growing as users are increasingly demanding greater online privacy and the tools which Brave uses to block scripts and ads is improving the experience for users, but this, in turn, is causing problems for advertisers and publishers.

Brave is attempting to change the model by changing the relationship between the three parties, ensuring that only ads that real people see on real sites are paid for, and providing a better distribution of income. The controversy comes with the Basic Attention Token, which Bitcoin maximalists have regularly criticized, both for the ICO issuance process and whether the token has any value for users.

Brave faces an uphill task in convincing people to use the token which arguably adds friction for all parties. In this interview, I talk with CEO and President of Brave, Brendan Eich about his rich history in tech, why he built the Brave browser and some of the controversies around the token.

What Bitcoin Did #44 Debunking Economics and Why Bitcoin Will Fail With Steve Keen

Nov 5, 2018

Description:

'œOne of the great weaknesses of the human species is we have this belief of a perfect world.'

'" Steve Keen

Interview location: Skype

Interview date: Monday 29th October

Project: Debunking Economics

Steve Keen is challenging modern economic theory which led us into the 2008 crisis. With his two books: Debunking Economics and Can We Avoid Another Financial Crisis, Steve outlines the inherent flaws in the capitalist system which are required to make them work.

Bitcoin is often praised by proponents of Austrian Economics, but Steve believes that Bitcoin will fail due to flaws in the protocol design. In this interview I talk to Steve about why the 2008 financial crisis happens, the flaws in the current capitalist model and what Steve like and dislikes about cryptocurrencies.

The Bitcoin Game #60: Dr. Adam Back Part 2 - Liquid

Nov 4, 2018

Description:

Welcome to episode 60 of‚The Bitcoin Game, I'm Rob Mitchell. I'm happy to bring to you part two of my interview with Cypherpunk and CEO of Blockstream, Dr. Adam Back. In this episode, we take a deep dive into Liquid, Blockstream's new federated sidechain. There's a lot more to Liquid than I realized, and it's fascinating to hear tons of details about the protocol. I lead us astray with some of my questions, but Dr. Back never fails to drop tons of crypto-knowledge.

And if you missed the first part of my interview, give episode 59 a listen to hear a great Cypherpunk history lesson.

What Bitcoin Did #43 Dan Held on Bitcoin's Immaculate Conception

Nov 1, 2018

Description:

'œI think the world becomes a better place when we stop asking for permission and start building.'

'" Dan Held

Interview location: Skype

Interview date: Thursday 25th October

Company: Picks & Shovels

Role: Co-founder and Director of BD

It is 10 years since Satoshi Nakamoto released the Bitcoin whitepaper, and in that time the protocol has survived so much: state-level bans, the Mt. Gox collapse, the closing of the Silk Road and civil war to name a few. Bitcoin has survived and is a +$100bn network, changing the rules and nature of money.

In this bonus release, I talk with Dan Held from Picks and Shovels about Bitcoin's immaculate conception.

SAFE Crossroads #45, Approaches to Alpha 3, with Nikita Baksalyar

Oct 31, 2018

Description:

In this episode we catch up on some of the things that have been going on in SAFE Network development, where it's been and what's coming down the line now, including the roll out of public testing of the automated peer-to-peer connection library, Crust (standing for "Connected" "Rust").

How do you ensure all the nodes of an ever-morphing P2P network get and stay connected, even past firewalls and routers? How do you do it when most nodes are being run by non-technical people using their spare computer resources?

The demands are high. Will Crust be up to the job?

What Bitcoin Did #42 Crypto Custody With Jeremy Welch & Alena Vranova

Oct 30, 2018

Description:

'œBitcoin does form the dominant position, it has the most hash power, it is the currency in terms of design, decentralisation, or ability for governments or corporate actors to control it, it is the strongest, therefor everything relies on Bitcoin's survival.'

'" Jeremy Welch

Interview location: Skype

Interview date: Saturday 27th October

Company: Casa

Role: Founder (Jeremy Welch), Strategy (Alena Vranova)

As the value of Bitcoin and Cryptocurrencies increase, custody has become an increasingly important and sophisticated part of self-sovereignty. The freedom and ease at which cryptocurrencies can be transferred also makes them a honeypot for hackers, coupled with immutable records, there is little recourse should your funds be stolen.

People hold their cryptocurrencies in a variety of wallets, from paper to hardware but these still expose vulnerabilities. From lost seed phrases to personal attacks, there is a demand in the market for more sophisticated custody solutions, and Casa is leading the way in developing the space.

With their central three-of-five management solution, Casa has targeted those with significant portfolios, but with the release of their Bitcoin full node and lightning node they are opening up options to more customers.

In this interview, I talk with Casa founder, Jeremy Welch and strategy lead, Alena Vranova (previously Trezor) about how the Casa solution works, the challenges of managing custody and why design is central to everything they do.

Distributed Dialogues EP #8 - The Great Firewall

Oct 29, 2018

Description:

"We have to learn from history and we want people to understand to not forget about history, what lessons we have to learn, and to make a new impact on society."

'"Fang Zheng

"If the hope for Google in 2010 was, if we pull out of this market, maybe it'll encourage them [China] to reform. If that was the hope, that has definitely not come to pass and if anything the opposite has happened."

'"Megha Rajagopalan

"If the Chinese government comes to me and says 'hand me over a user's data and everything you have on them', I have nothing on them because Graphite doesn't have any servers, doesn't have a database and the user stores all of the data himself and is encrypted. So even if I could point a government to where the data is located, it would be encrypted and the user is literally the only person that can decrypt it."

'"Justin Hunter

Welcome to Season Two of Distributed Dialogues. This season was inspired by the Human Rights Foundation's Oslo Freedom Forum, focusing on the intersection between human rights and decentralized technology. In each episode we'll tell stories where basic human rights have been jeopardized, then present ways in which decentralized technology might serve as a tool for overcoming these challenges.

This episode is called 'œThe Great Firewall'; in it, we bring you the story of how, for better or worse, technological innovations and the rule of law have influenced China's cultural present and past.

Distributed Dialogues is a BTC Media-produced podcast on the Let's Talk Bitcoin Network. Visit www.letstalkbitcoin.com for more engaging podcasts and follow us on twitter @TheLTBNetwork.

What Bitcoin Did #41 Bitmain's IPO With Samson Mow & Katherine Wu

Oct 27, 2018

Description:

'œI think that they don't want to IPO right now, but they have no choice because they raised with the expectation that they would IPO, so they had to file and it had to look good, or as good as they could make it look.'

'" Samson Mow

Interview location: Skype

Interview date: Thursday 18th October

Company: Blockstream (Samson Mow), Messari (Katherine Wu)

Role: Chief Strategy Office (Samson Mow), Director of Business Development (Katherine Wu)

The Bitmain IPO was to be the largest in history. Riding the 2017 bull run, Bitmain delivered staggering growth numbers with $billions in revenue and profit, but the bear market crash of 2018 has exposed fragilities in the business and raised many concerns with operations and strategy.

Coindesk reported this week that investors received false information around the most recent funding round, this alongside the significant questions surrounding the balance sheet, faltering innovation and the decision to support and prop up the price of Bitcoin Cash is casting a shadow over the IPO.

In this interview, I discuss the IPO and the state of Bitmain with Blockstream's Samson Mow and Messari's Katherine Wu.

The Third Web #10 - Jack du Rose, Colony & Coase

Oct 27, 2018

Description:

In 2015 I interviewed Jack du Rose about Colony - his autonomous platform that could track contribution to a common enterprse and reward tokens representing stake in said enterprise. Three years and two private betas on, we hear from Jack about his experience building a system to revolutionize the way we work together.

Part of what makes Colony facinating is to see the enormity of the events that have taken place in the years since it's conception and how in spite of these events, the process of product design has proceeded in a linear and systematic fashion, uninfluenced by the white hot speculative market.

Colony is preparing to go live this year if you'd like to learn more visit colony.io,

#258 Monica Quaintance: Kadena - Public and Permissioned Blockchains that Scale

Oct 23, 2018

Description:

We're joined by Monica Quaintance, Head of Engineering and Adoption at Kadena. While most companies providing enterprise solutions focus primarily on permissioned systems, Kadena is building both a public network protocol and private blockchain infrastructure. Their Chainweb protocol will soon launch as a public network and smart contract platform. The company claims their novel approach to proof of work offers enormous gains on transaction throughput, even at scale, while benefiting from the same security as Bitcoin. Alongside Chainwebs, Kadena is building a permissioned protocol more suited for enterprise applications in insurance and finance.

Topics discussed in this episode:

Monica's background at the SECThe genesis of Kadena and why the founders left JP MorganKadena's unique approach to building both public and permissioned protocolsThe Chainweb protocol and it's approach to proof of workThe incentive mechanisms in ChainwebHow Chainweb protects itself against common attack vectorsThe PACT smart contract languageKadena's enterprise blockchain offeringThe company's go-to-market strategy and business model

What Bitcoin Did #40 An Interview with Jameson Lopp

Oct 23, 2018

Description:

'œIf you want to protect yourself from this over arching legal system then you will want to hide as much of your activity as possible.'

'" Jameson Lopp

Interview location: Skype

Interview date: Thursday 18th October

In his book, Nineteen Eighty-Four, published in 1949, George Orwell wrote about a dystopian future where the government subjects the population to omnipresent surveillance. That day is here, but the surveillance isn't just that it's operated by the government; from Google scanning emails to Amazon recording your conversations with Alexa, Silicon Valley behemoths, hungry for data to provide their clients with more innovative advertising solutions are operating surveillance operations of there own.

These advertising solutions range from the innocent use of location data to recommend nearby restaurants to the more sinister use of data to influence elections, as seen with the Cambridge Analytics scandal.

There is a small but growing group of people who are rejecting this form of surveillance and business is responding. Privacy tools have gone from niche to standard. Opera includes a built-in VPN, Brave blocks ads and allows for Tor tabs for anonymous browsing and DuckDuckGo has placed personal privacy at the centre of search.

A lack of privacy protection can lead to a multitude of problems:

Hacking

Personal attacks

Extortion

Unwanted attention

Damaged careers

Despite the risks of not taking control of your privacy, there is still a general lazy attitude towards it. Integrating privacy as standard and simplifying the user experience is why companies such as Brave and DuckDuckGo are growing. They are making privacy easy.

In this interview, I welcome back Jameson Lopp to talk about his approach to privacy and his recent Medium post on the subject: A Modest Privacy Protection Proposal - How to reclaim your privacy in the surveillance age, as well as Jameson updating me on progress at Casa.

Distributed Dialogues EP #7 - Cambodia and the Fall of its Free Press

Oct 22, 2018

Description:

"I think you need to keep alive some sort of a citizen journalist concept, so that eventually, if there is some kind of a civil-society movement, there's something to hold it together, a glue that will hold it together."

'"David Andelman

Welcome to Season Two of Distributed Dialogues. This season was inspired by the Human Rights Foundation's Oslo Freedom Forum, focusing on the intersection between human rights and decentralized technology. In each episode we'll tell stories where basic human rights have been jeopardized, then present ways in which decentralized technology might serve as a tool for overcoming these challenges.

This episode is called 'œCambodia and the Fall of its Free Press'; in it, we bring you the story of Cambodia's civil war and its current need for citizen journalists.

What Bitcoin Did #39 An Interview with Giacomo Zucco

Oct 19, 2018

Description:

'œEthereum itself is not an experiment in something new, because they tried to implement any bad idea that was already discussed with Bitcoin in 2013.'

'" Giacomo Zucco

Interview location: Skype

Interview date: Tuesday 16th October 2018

Giacomo Zucco is a proud Bitcoin Maximalist, and his presentation on the subject at the Honey Badger conference in Riga led to mixed reactions. Some called out the stupidity of Bitcoin Maximalism specifically concerning his slide: The Four Universal Truths of Bitcoin Maximalism:

Everything which is not Bitcoin is a scam!

Every attempt at changing Bitcoin is a scam!

Every attempt at pushing people to spend Bitcoin is a scam!

We shouldn't be nice to scammers!

While the slide was part tongue in cheek, and I suspect point 3 was trolling Bitcoin Cash supporters, many took this as a strict doctrine of Bitcoin Maximalism and attacked Giacomo for it. Bitcoin Cash is indeed under threat, the Bitmain IPO has identified how much Bitmain accepting and buying BCH is supporting the price, and outside of Bitcoin, very few projects have managed to demonstrate use case or adoption.

Even with Bitcoin, there are no coiners who attack the entire crypto space, chief amongst the naysayers is Nouriel Roubini, who last week declared war on crypto with his testimony to Congress. The disappointing thing about Nouriel's presentation was that he made many good points, but became lost amongst exaggerations and falsities.

In this interview, I discuss Nouriel's testimony with Giacomo Zucco, the disservice he did himself with how he presented his arguments and what Giacomo and I agreed and disagreed with. We also discuss:

The B Foundation

Brexit

Monero

#257 Kevin Owocki: Gitcoin - Aligning Incentives in Open-Source Development

Oct 17, 2018

Description:

Building open source software is a collaborative process which relies on good faith and willingness of volunteers. While most of the software we use daily relies heavily on open-source libraries, incentive models are broken. Repo maintainers are eager to see their projects evolve, but have little leverage to encourage developers to contribue. And projects contributors create enormous value by dedicating their time and expertise while getting little in return. Both open and closed-source projects utilize bountied to source engineering talent. Combined with blockchain technologies, there is a potential to create efficient, two-sided markets which align incentives for all participants.

We're joined by Kevin Owocki, who is the Founder of Gitcoin. The Ethereum-based platform leverages the open source community to incentivize and monetize work, remunerating developers for pull requests made to projects. Gitcoin was itself built using Gitcoin and is today facilitating bug bounty payments for dozens of blockchain projects. At the time of writing, over 200 projects have used the platform to distribute over $340,000 in bounties to developers. As Gitcoin continues to grow, the goal is to expand its reach to the broader open-source ecosystem.

Topics discussed in this episode:

Kevin's background as a software engineerThe fundamental challenges in open-source development and fundingWhat is Gitcoin and how it addresses incentive alignmentHow Gitcoin works from the perspective of both project funders and contributorsThe platforms usage statistics (projects funded, contributors, bounties paid, etc.)How Gitcoin may be used to fund closed-source bountied and public goodsKevin's proposal for recurring payments in Ethereum (EIP1337/ERC948)How Gitcoin is funded and the project's business modelGitcoin's roadmap moving forward

What Bitcoin Did #38 An Interview with Nic Carter

Oct 12, 2018

Description:

'œMoney might be the only case where you desperately need to radically decentralise the set of people who can create and have influence over the creation schedule.'

'" Nic Carter

Interview location: Skype

Interview date: Wednesday 10th October 2018

Union Square Ventures posted a blog post this week titled The Myth of the Infrastructure Phase, shining a light on the imbalance between infrastructure work in crypto and DApp usage. There is an abundance of blockchain scaling projects, alternative currencies and governance protocols but a distinct lack of users. Why is this? Are people solving problems which do not exist? Is this a speculative land grab? How will this all play out?

In this interview, I talk to Nic Carter, a partner at Castle Island Ventures, who invest in equity deals for companies building on public blockchains, specifically Bitcoin.

We question a number of crypto related topics including:

Token models

The obsession with blockchains

What is the point of on-chain governance

Whether the web 3.0 stack is a thing

Mining centralisation

Bitcoin privacy

Realised cap as an economic model for Bitcoin

What Bitcoin Did #37 An Interview with Jimmy Song

Oct 5, 2018

Description:

'œThis is why proof of work needs to be expensive, if it is cheap you can roll back things easily. You want it to be very difficult to change history. The only way to make it difficult to change history is to make the process of writing the current history very expensive.'

'" Jimmy Song

Interview location: Skype

Interview date: Monday 1st October 2018

The recent Bitcoin protocol bug, CVE-2018-1744, received considerable amounts of alarmist press, 'œFor less than $80,000, you could have brought down the entire network,' 'œThe most catastrophic bug in recent years, and certainly one of the most catastrophic bugs in Bitcoin ever.' Despite these claims, few looked into the detail of the bug and the game theory behind executing an attack.

Code has bugs; code has always had bugs, rather than focus on criticising developers it is important to assess how it happened, why it happened and how to avoid similar problems in the future. Alongside process, it is also important to not just analyse the potential damage a bug can cause but also the game theory behind an attack.

While the founder of the bug, Awemany, used his discovery of the bug to launch a scathing and personal attack on Bitcoin, Jimmy Song analysed the bug, how it could be exploited and the game theory behind such an attack.

This week I caught up with Jimmy to discuss his findings, and also:

State level attacks

Mining centralisation

51% attack game theory

Why proof of work needs to be expensive

How non-techies can support Bitcoin

What Bitcoin Did #36 An Interview with Caitlin Long & Saifedean Ammous

Sep 28, 2018

Description:

'œNegative interest rates are purely a construct of the artificiality of the monetary system. There is going to a major bond crash - the challenge is that this could be years if not decades away, or it could be tomorrow.'

'" Caitlin Long

'œWhat is going to be interesting in the next crisis is whether Bitcoin behaves as a speculative asset. Will people exit it towards more safer, more liquid assets like the Dollar or gold, or whether it is going to behave more like safe haven asset itself, and people will be exiting other things, particularly the altcoins for the relative safety and liquidity of Bitcoin.'

'" Saifedean Ammous

Interview location: Skype

Interview date: Fri 21st September 2018

Following the 2008 market crash, analysts are highlighting new risks for the global economy with rising government debt presenting a risk of a bond crash. The last 12 months have also seen a fall in the value of the local currency in countries such as Iran, Turkey and Venezuela. Data from Local Bitcoin's highlights that in failing economies, Bitcoin is often seen as a safe haven.

Bitcoin is playing an increasingly important role in the global economy with regulators and Wall Street coming to the table.

In this episode, I talk with the author of The Bitcoin Standard, Saifedean Ammous and Wall Street veteran, Caitlin Long. We discuss:

The state of the global economy

Keynesian economics

Negative interest rates

Deregulation of the banking industry KYC/AML

The Bank Secrecy Act

Privacy and is it dangerous for Bitcoin

Rehypothecation

Fractional reserve Bitcoin

Implications of Wall Street adoption of Bitcoin

How the Bitcoin revolution will happen

#254 Allen Day: Google's Mission to Provide Open Datasets for Public Blockchains

Sep 26, 2018

Description:

Public blockchains produce enormous amounts of data. In theory, anyone can access the raw contents of transaction and blocks. In practice, however, querying blockchains can prove to be a daunting task.

The difficulty lies in the fact that blockchains are particular types of distributed databases and thus carry several limitations. Most, if not all, blockchains lack the most basic SQL querying capabilities supported by nearly every off-the-shelf database system.

Take Bitcoin as an example. Its API lacks even the most basic calls which would allow a user to query any address and receive the balance. In order to achieve this, block explorers and alike have developed sophisticated middleware infrastructure that parses the blockchain, normalizes the data, and stores it in a database, where it can be queried. In the best of cases, companies offer API calls for only a limited set of operations. Google hopes to change this by freeing blockchain datasets.

We're joined by Allen Day, Science Advocate at Google's Singapore office. Earlier this year, he and his team released the Bitcoin blockchain as a public dataset in Big Query, Google big data IaaS offering. In August, they added Ethereum to their list of freely available public datasets, which includes US census data, cannabis genomes, and the entirety of Reddit and Github. Anyone wishing to query the data can do so in SQL on the Big Query website or via an API. For instance, a relatively simple query would return the daily mean transaction fees since the Genesis Block in just a few seconds.

Coupled with Google's AI and Machine Learning infrastructure and other open data sets, one can only imagine the potentially groundbreaking insights we could gain from this data.

Topics discussed in this episode:

Allen's background as a geneticistThe similarities between blockchains and evolution process in lifeformsGoogle's cloud platform and its various componentsBig Query and its publicly available datasetsThe Bitcoin and Ethereum datasets in Big QueryWhy this data is useful to the public and for what it may be usedThe particular challenges in implementing Ethereum as opposed to BitcoinInsights we may gain by crossing blockchain dataset with other dataHow machine learning and AI could help us better understand specific transaction patterns

Let's Talk Bitcoin! #376 Stablecoins (and the Irresistible Urge to Peg)

Sep 23, 2018

Description:

On Todays Episode of Let's Talk Bitcoin...

Join Stephanie Murphy, Andreas Antonopoulos and Adam B. Levine for an in-depth conversation on pegged, "Stablecoins". We discuss the two approaches that have been tried so far and what's different about this latest generation for better or worse.

Correction: Towards the end of the episode we discuss the "Law Enforcement" controls within the Paxos dollar smart contract. It turns out they are labeled "Law Enforcement" to illustrate how they'll be used, rather than because they literally are keys controlled by Law Enforcement. This is a subtle difference, but it does at least partially assuage the concern about seizures that lack a legal order as was briefly discussed.

Q: Some of your code is labeled LawEnforcement. Does law enforcement have direct access to your code?

A: No, we will never give law enforcement direct access to our code.We have the ability to freeze and seize tokens, and we have labeled the related code to make it clear that we would only utilize this functionality if required to by law. Illegal activity is strictly prohibited. Please see our policy for more information.Read the full FAQ

What Bitcoin Did #35 An Interview with Jake Chervinsky

Sep 21, 2018

Description:

#253 Angela C. Walch: The Case for Treating Developers as Fiduciaries in Public Blockchains

Sep 19, 2018

Description:

The expectation has become widespread that blockchains will end up underpinning major societal infrastructures. The narrative in the blockchain space is that networks are decentralized and trustless and thus regulation should not apply to networks directly. Legal scholar Angela C. Walch has been questioning terms like decentralization and trustlessness and argues that blockchains shift the need for trust rather than remove it. Her controversial ideas include that key developers of open-source project should be treated as fiduciaries and held accountable for the consequences of their work.

Angela Walch is a professor of law at St Mary University School of Law and a Research Fellow at the Center for Blockchain at UCL. She is a graduate of Harvard College and Harvard Law School and has been doing academic work on legal issues surrounding public blockchains since 2013.

Topics discussed in this episode:

How she became interested in Bitcoin and issues around the narratives of decentralization and trustlessnessHow her work has been received in the blockchain spaceThe problematic lack of a clear definition of terms like trustless, immutable and decentralizedWhy blockchains should be looked at as trust-shifting, not trustlessThe definition and role of fiduciaries in societyWhy blockchain developers could be considered fiduciariesThe practical implications and difficulties of regulating blockchain developers as fiduciariesHow the SEC's stance on blockchains connects with the question of developers being fiduciariesHer personal views on the value and promise of blockchain tech

What Bitcoin Did #34 An Interview with Riccardo 'FluffyPony' Spagni from Monero & Tari

Sep 14, 2018

Description:

'œOver the last 10 to 15 years there has been an uprising of people who value privacy, not because they are weird and want to go and hide in the woods, ordinary citizens who are not happy with how much data they are handing over.'

'" Riccardo "FluffyPony" Spagni

Interview location: Skype

Interview date: Thu 13th September 2018

Company: Tari (and Monero core team member)

Role: Co-founder

David Chaum said that 'œPrivacy is tied to human potential, an important aspect of democracy', yet increasingly we are finding our lives are being tracked, both commercially and via the government. We blindly provide Internet giants such as Facebook and Google with massive amounts of data about who we are, what we do and the things we buy.

The Cambridge Analytica scandal highlighted how are data is abused and used to manipulate us. There is now an uprising, a growth in awareness of the value of privacy. People are hiding their browsing activity, and Internet giants are under pressure to be more responsible with data.

In this episode, I talk to Riccardo 'œFluffPony' Spagni, core team member of Monero, a privacy-based cryptocurrency. Monero is often accused of being a tool for the criminals and drug dealers, but Monero is a tool for financial privacy, a way for us to keep our economic activities and transactions private.

In this episode we discuss:

-The importance of privacy

-Why there is apathy towards privacy

-Riccardo's new project Tari

-Privacy tools

-The potential for a privacy web stack

-What is coming up for Monero

The Bitcoin Game #58: Jennifer Zhu Scott

Sep 12, 2018

Description:

Welcome to episode 58 of‚The Bitcoin Game, I'm Rob Mitchell. In January of this year, I saw lots of talk about the World Economic Forum's speeches and panels in Davos. Even Donald Trump spoke at this event. But the panel I was most interested in was called The Crypto Asset Bubble, and it featured Nobel Prize Laureate Robert Shiller. I didn't know any of the other panelists, but the one who stuck out to me the most was Jennifer Zhu Scott. She seemed very pro-Bitcoin and was a very eloquent speaker. I wondered why I'd never heard of her before. I immediately invited Jen to be a guest on my podcast, and we finally connected just a bit ago, thanks to Twitter. We cover many topics including the World Economic Forum, her favorite project, China, and her involvement in the hit HBO series, Silicon Valley.

What Bitcoin Did #33 An Interview with Kyle Samani

Sep 7, 2018

Description:

'œBitcoin is not going to zero, I don't even think Bitcoin is going to be irrelevant, I do think in 10 years time there will be at least one asset worth materially more money than Bitcoin.'

'" Kyle Samani

Interview location: Skype

Interview date: Wed 5th September 2018

Company: Multicoin Capital

Role: Founding Partner

Kyle first appeared on the What Bitcoin Did podcast in March, where we discussed his views on regulation in Crypto, institutional inflows and his doubts about Bitcoin. Since then, Kyle Tweeted about his changing stance with Bitcoin, specifically stating "TLDR: I'm bought in. Kind of."

Kyle does split opinion; there are maximalists who think he talks nonsense, some who hold him to account for his over bullish thoughts on EOS and others who appreciate his hard work and the thought pieces he puts into the market.

Following Kyle, I have come to understand his approach. As a hedge fund manager, his goal is to create a return on his capital, and he sees blockchain as a disruptive technology which can change the world, thus creating a return for the fund. Kyle, therefore, puts out statements, questions and ideas into the market to spark a debate. He doesn't mind being wrong, insulted or challenged; everything is done with the goal of finding value and investment ideas.

Whether you agree with Kyle or not, if there is value to be created outside of Bitcoin then Kyle will likely find it, which is why significant other investors are backing him. In this interview we discuss:

-Why his view has changed on Bitcoin

-Miner rewards after the 2024 halving

-Proof of stake v proof of work

-What will be the global digital reserve asset

-Kyle's article: Aggregation Theory, Thin Protocols, And Recentralization: Augur Edition

Distributed Dialogues is a collaborative show between the Let's Talk Bitcoin Network and Distributed magazine. In each episode we'll introduce you to people who are using blockchain technology to change the way we interact with the world around us.

What are the risks and rewards of government involvement in the crypto space? For enterprises, there are little to no regulatory hurdles. They essentially use blockchain technology as a new type of data system. On the other hand, the government's intended role has been to prevent nefarious activity, scams and any kind of pandemic economic crises. The ongoing point of contention, here, is assessing what level of involvement the state and its laws should have in open source projects. And if there is needed governmental input, would this type of involvement prevent decentralization?

In this episode we will hear from two current and former government employees, John Collins and Jason Hsu, who act as significant points of contact between the cryptocurrency community and their respective governments, the United States and Taiwan. In between, we talk with Konstantin Richter in a sponsored interview, about his company BlockDaemon, which helps new companies build decentralized infrastructures by offering nodes-as-a-service.**

The Tatiana Show- Scott Horton

Sep 6, 2018

Description:

Late 2018 will mark the first time that children bornafterthe 9/11 terrorist attacks in 2001 can enlist and join the still ongoing war in Afghanistan. The Tatiana Show marks this dubious milestone with our episode featuring Scott Horton, director of the Libertarian Institute, host of the Scott Horton Show podcast on Antiwar.com, and author of "Fool's Errand: Time to End the War in Afghanistan" (2003).

The episode kicks off by noting a resurgence of interest in America's foreign relations with Russia since Trump's election. Horton gives a brief overview of the cold war, outlining dynamics between global superpowers since the end of World War II in 1944. He describes the communist construction of the Berlin wall, the fallout of a destroyed Europe, and America's inheritance of a world empire and its subsequent recklessness in that role.

Picking up again in the 90s, Horton reviews the recent Bush Sr., Clinton, Bush Jr., and Obama era presidencies, and cultural shifts in the perceptions of communism, socialism, fascism, and capitalism. He also examines U.S. justifications for wars in the middle east and the ways in which their reasoning falls flat.

Finally, the team returns to the present era Trump administration, discussing how Trump's trade policies affect geopolitical relations and what moves the U.S. might make next on the world stage.

#251 Glen Weyl: Radical Markets - Uprooting Capitalism and Democracy for a Just Society

Sep 5, 2018

Description:

The rise of populism and increasing inequality have led to widespread questioning of democracy and capitalism. Glen Weyl, a political economist and Principal Researcher at Microsoft, along with legal scholar Eric Posner, published a book called 'Radical Markets'. Radical Markets explores how restructuring property rights and voting systems could lead to more efficient markets and a more just society. Glen joined us to discuss the book and why the blockchain space is a fertile testbed to explore these radical new ideas.

Topics discussed in this episode:

Why blockchain is on a trajectory to exacerbate inequality and fail at improving the worldWhy property should be seen as a monopolistic institutionHow property rights create inefficient marketsThe radical idea of transforming property rights via a Common Ownership Self-Assessed Tax (COST)How the one-person-one-vote system contributed to the crisis of democracyHow quadratic voting works and leads to fairer outcomesWhether or not buying of votes should be allowed in QVHis work with Vitalik and radical markets experiments in blockchain

#250 Clement Lessage & Federico Ast: Kleros - Crowdsourced Arbitration for Blockchain Applications

Sep 5, 2018

Description:

Dispute resolution is the process by which contracting parties settle disagreements. Whether in the form of litigation, arbitration, or other means of mediation, every contract defines a dispute resolution mechanism and jurisdiction. It is the metaphorical Lady Justice, measuring the strength of each party's arguments, and reaching a decision based on evidence.

Smart contracts are unique in this sense. Unlike traditional contracts, they are rigid and deterministic. Written in computer code, nuances in human language and vagueness of terms do not exist in this realm. There are no judges, no jury, just calculated execution.

The DOA hack and other similar events have prompted observers of the space to express the need for smart contract dispute resolution. Some have suggested 'œexit switches' that would allow for human intervention when edge cases appear. But could the arbitration process be integrated into the smart contract and on the blockchain?

We're joined by, Federico Ast and Clement Lessage, respectively CEO and CTO of Kleros. This dispute resolution layer provides contracting parties with a fast and secure process for arbitration. The system is broken up into courts and sub-courts, each specializing in specific matters like e-commerce, insurance, and transport. In the event of a dispute, parties submit their case to Kleros, where a crowd of expert jurors analyses the evidence. When all votes are cast, the decision is enforced by the smart contract, which may unlock funds, or provide parties with additional time to fulfill the terms of the agreement. Clever incentive mechanisms reward jurors who vote with the crowd, making Kleros resistant to bribe attacks and collusion between jurors.

Topics discussed in this episode:

Federico and Clement's respective backgrounds, including a crowd arbitration project called Jury.The vision behind Kleros and the problem it addressesThe case for crowd-sourced jurors as a means to find the best judgmentThe game theory and incentive mechanisms embedded in KlerosKleros' hierarchical system of courts and sub-courtsHow jury selection works and who administers courtsThe system's built-in governance mechanism and its purposeThe Kleros token, Pinkaion coin, and it's utility in the system'œDoge on Trial,' a clever experiment to find authentic dogesThe current status of the project and roadmap

Universal basic income, pros and cons

P3D, POWH.io, and FOMO3D

Thank you to my new sponsor, Equity Trust. Check out their free e-book, "Guide to Investing in Digital Currency with an IRA."

In this episode, entrepreneur Rob Viglione discusses new branding for his company, Horizen (formerly Zencash). The coin name and ticker remains "ZEN," and users of zencash don't need to change anything! The new branding reflects their broader vision to build a full digital economy, including investments, new wallets, and liquid democracy with an on-chain voting system. See their website and exciting new projects at horizen.global.

Next, we feature Bob Murphy, an economist at Texas Tech University, the Institute for Energy Research, the Fraser Institute, and The Independent Institute. He's also a co-host of Contra Krugman, a weekly podcast in which he addresses The New York Times economist Paul Krugman.

Relatedly, I'll be joining Bob Murphy on the upcoming Contra Cruise, October 21-28, sailing from San Diego along the Mexican coast with like-minded libertarians, economists, and fun people. At various stops, people can enjoy beaches and touring local cities. While sailing, the cruise features sessions in the morning on history, economics, and more.

Bob Murphy discusses how he became interested in cryptocurrency and how he brought his knowledge of monetary theory to understanding the new technology, eventually releasing a book online, Understanding Bitcoin.

I also recently did an episode of The Tatiana Show on P3D, POWH.io, and FOMO3D.

Bob assesses their models along with ideas about universal basic income and existing solutions to certain economic problems, such as Sam's Club. Do you think P3D or similar projects represent brilliant new economic models? Do you support a universal basic income policy? Comment below or ping me on Facebook or Twitter.

Technology & Choice #36, Creator and Created, a Converstation

Sep 4, 2018

Description:

right click here and select "save link as" to download

As the creator of something, do you give it life? As a fiction writer, does a story acquire a life of its own? As a software programmer, do you sometimes feel that what you're creating has something to teach you? Is your creation of any sort just something you do and have done, or do you nurture it and query it about what it needs to succeed?

I recently had the pleasure of visiting my old friend, Robert Worstell, on his farm in Missouri, after 20 years of not seeing each other in person, but 15 years of regular communication and collaboration.

This was a very meaningful and useful time for us both, and I hope our conversation conveys some fraction of meaning and usefulness to the listener. We mine a vein of gold here, not just about writing, but about the relationship of anyone with the subject of what he or she is creating. It's a perspective that applies across the board, whether one is a writer, a programmer, a salesperson or carpenter, etc.

We hit on something very interesting regarding the intersection of technology and choice which I, personally at least, found quite profound.

Enjoy. And consider how the mechanics discussed here might apply to what you do and what you create.

Distributed Dialogues EP #5 - The East

Sep 4, 2018

Description:

"We realized, blockchain is something different...the internet of value can be created by this new technology."

'"Jack Lee

Distributed Dialogues is a collaborative show between the Let's Talk Bitcoin Network and Distributed magazine. In each episode we'll introduce you to people who are using blockchain technology to change the way we interact with the world around us.

With the advent of bitcoin, the idea of a global currency, not unlike the credits of Star Wars came into focus as a reality. People from opposite ends of the globe, and without any greedy intermediaries (looking at you banks & Western Union) could exchange verifiable digital money for goods and services. Crypto established one of the first monetary fields that was without borders and promised to play on a level field for everyone. Today, the globe wheels and deals in cryptocurrencies, and lots of amazing projects, not to mention, investment capital, targeted at growing crypto and blockchain use cases, is coming from Asia and the east.

In this episode we hear from two people who carry the leading perspectives on Asian blockchain investment efforts at two of the world's largest corporations, Jack Lee of Foxconn's HCM Capital and Riddhiman Das of Alibaba's Ant Financial. Also, in a sponsored interview, we talk with Larry Liu of the Genaro Network, a Singaporean project building a smart data ecosystem that integrates blockchain and storage layers.

Distributed Dialogues EP #4 New Markets

Aug 24, 2018

Description:

"It was extremely difficult to create new books before the invention of the printing press. It was expensive and unsystematic. After the printing press, disseminating new books across the world became much simpler. The prices of books dropped and more people started reading. It's the same way with the financial market today... It's kind of like a world where there is only a couple hundred books, it's not nearly as interesting as it could be."'"Joey Krug

Distributed Dialogues is a collaborative show between the Let's Talk Bitcoin Network and Distributed magazine. In each episode we introduce you to people who are using blockchain technology to change the way we interact with the world around us.

What if you could make money trading on the outcome of the next presidential election? How would one go about selling rental properties, TV shows or oil through a blockchain? And what exactly does it mean to be leading the race towards enterprise adoption of blockchain technology? As people begin to look at the many ways that blockchain technology can change the way we interact with the world, they begin to see opportunity.

New markets can grow fast, exceptionally so. But the risk of entering a new market can be profoundly underestimated. No matter how good a company, team or project is, if demand does not emerge at the speed and size predicted, success might be unattainable.

In this episode we run the business gamut, hearing from both new ventures in the crypto space, including the team at Augur, crypto's best-known decentralized prediction market, and new moves by an older tech giant interacting with the Blockchain space. In between, we speak with Trust Token, a project that allows for the tokenization of real-world assets.

Guests include Eileen Lowry of IBM, Jeremy Gardner and Joey Krug of Augur, and Rafael Cosman of TrustToken.

The Tatiana Show- talking P3D, FOMO, POWH w. Kingsley Edwards, Preston Byrne

Aug 21, 2018

Description:

Hi everyone! I have been talking about P3D,POWH.io, andFOMO3Dfor about a month or so now to anyone who will listen. I have suffered many eye rolls at what a fool I am to be taken in by this OBVIOUS ponzi' but I persisted. I wasn't going to let close minded thinking shut me down! I thought it was an exciting project and experiment.Hopefully you guys agree!

It was good to hear Kingsley's perspective, as he is the bringer of P3D to me, as well as one of my first Bitcoin friends. Preston was a great skeptic, and was chosen for his tweet a few weeks ago around when P3D was popping. Petros brought in the dev perspective. Josh was a bit skeptical, but def intrigued. Where did we end up after the convo? I don't know, but it was a cool exploration!

We also had on Sharon fromChicago Blockchain Project.Check out the conference this weekend Aug 24-25! I can't wait to perform, and I know I have some cool panels with some other neat music/blockchain projects. The vibe in Chicago is awesome, and I love Navy Pier, especially the ferris wheel!

Hey y'all! I really enjoyed talking with everyone today, and I know Josh did too. I have been interested in the use of cryptocurrency in South America, but we got a peek into Dash in Venezuela, arguably one of the most fertile grounds for this new technology. In the midst of the horror, Dash and other cryptos are finding their way on the ground to help people get around the inflation. When I say inflation, I mean it's estimated to hit 1,000,000% this year!

Company: Crypto Cast Network and Programming With Bitcoin

Role: CEO

The Bitcoin rabbit hole is deep, and there are many areas to research and understand. As I try and increase my knowledge, I have found myself learning about economics, politics, philosophy, history to name a few.

When talking to Bitcoiners, I have found that they all have a solid understand and view of the economic reason for Bitcoin and therefore why it is so important to them, whatever their discipline.

In this episode, I talk with Vortex, founder of the Crypto Cast Network and Programming With Bitcoin. We talk about how he is teaching C# developers to integrate Bitcoin within their applications, ICE/NYSE and Bakkt, and fractional reserve Bitcoin.

#248 Uri Klarman: bloXroute - Layer-0 Scaling with the Blockchain Distribution Network

Aug 15, 2018

Description:

Until now, proposals to improve blockchain scalability have addressed the problem in one of two ways. One seeks to increase efficiency by optimizing the blockchain or improving the consensus algorithm. The other comes in the forms of layer-2 solutions such as payment channels or side chains.

However, none have addressed the core bottleneck to scalability: TCP/IP network limitations. Improving the speed at which blocks propagate through the network is the layer-0 problem few people consider when thinking about scaling.

Fundamentally, network bottlenecks are what prevent blockchains from increasing their transaction throughput. Raising the block size or reducing the time between blocks has devastating effects on usability as the probability of a fork increases. At a certain point, the blockchain simply breaks as forks occur faster than blocks can propagate to all validators.

Remarkably, the web figured out how to scale decades ago with the invention of Content Distributions Networks, or CDN. This is what enables platforms like YouTube to steam thousands of hours of video to hundreds of thousands of people every second. However, traditional centralized scaling solutions lack the privacy and censorship resistance necessary to serve the decentralized web.

We're joined by Uri Klarman, CEO of bloXroute. Founded by a team of researchers and systems designers from Northwestern and Cornel University, including Emin Gƒn Sirer, bloXroute allows practically every blockchain network to 'œscale today.'

As a scalability infrastructure service, their Blockchain Distribution Network, or BDN, sits underneath blockchain networks. Anyone operating a miner can use the BDN without any changes to their consensus algorithm or protocol. By simply pointing their software to a bloXroute node, miners immediately benefit from propagation speeds orders of magnitude higher than the time which is currently required for blocks to be seen by all validators. This global network of servers is optimized to receive and stream massive amounts of transaction data to vast networks of nodes and miners.

While bloXroute relies on some level of centralization, it is provably neutral and cannot discriminate based on the contents, provenance or destination of a block. It also includes clever redundancy mechanisms which ensure availability in the event of an attack on the network.

Topics discussed in this episode:

Uri's journey as an academic working in the field of networkingDefining the blockchain scalability problem as a networking problemPast work and attempts to scale blockchainsThe vision behind bloXroute and the problem it aims to solveThe Blockchain Distribution Network (BDN) and its technical architectureHow the BDN optimizes blocks and achieves 1,000x faster propagation timesHow bloXroute archives provable neutrality and ensures network resiliencyThe BLXR token and incentive mechanismsThe project's goals, milestones, and product roadmap

DD Episode #3 - Privacy & Trust

Aug 10, 2018

Description:

"Remember the story of Frankenstein. Frankenstein wasn't the monster; Dr. Frankenstein was the young scientist who was so excited about what he could build that he didn't forsee the possible ramifications' I hope that the new age coming to mankind remains one where the consent of the governed still matters."

'"Patrick Byrne

This episode was recorded at the 2018 Distributed Conference in San Francisco, CA. Sometimes there is streetcar noise--such is life.

Distributed Dialogues is a collaborative show between the Let's Talk Bitcoin Network and Distributed magazine. In each episode we introduce you to people who are using blockchain technology to change the way we interact with the world around us.

As a currency, Bitcoin is not controlled or supported by a third party entity such as a bank or government. And while the idea of everyone using a currency that no one controls can seem chaotic and counterintuitive, many people see it as the best alternative to the internet's current paradigm.

Recently, it's been made clear that paradigm is one where an online user's most intimate information can be readily accessed by third party entities such as Google and Facebook and sold to companies with more nefarious goals, like Cambridge Analytica. One great hope of blockchain technology is that it could help create a new version of the internet that puts control of privacy and trust back into the hands of its users.

In this episode we speak with David Chaum, cryptographer and creator of Digicash, Rebecca Lerner, Executive Vice President of the Mad Network, Reuben Yap, COO of Zcoin and Patrick Byrne, CEO of Overstock.com and Executive Chairman of tZERO.

WBD #29 An Interview with Jamie Burke

Aug 10, 2018

Description:

'œIt is probably going to be true, as in most tech cycles that the first attempts at something won't be the ones that succeed.'

'" Jamie Burke

Interview location: London

Interview date: Tue 8th August 2018

Company: Outlier Ventures

Role: CEO

The Crypto bear market has highlighted the lack of value creation within the space. While Bitcoin has many proven use cases, protocols, DApps and other altcoins are under increasing scrutiny from investors and market analysts.

While there are plenty of theories on how the financial and technology markets will be disrupted with decentralised blockchain based ideas, there are few, if any, proven and sustainable Crypto startups. This raises some questions:

Do any project outside of Bitcoin require a blockchain?Do users care about decentralisation?Are these all just shitcoins?Significant money has been invested in these new protocols and DApps, but many are struggling to ship, and those who do ship are struggling to gain traction. Supporters will argue that we are early, and that patience is required, but are these Crypto startups trying to solve problems which do not exist?

Building DApps is hard and smart contracts come with many complications. Still, this hasn't stopped investors from investing and coders from building. Only time will tell as to whether there is a need for blockchains outside of the Bitcoin 'Sound Money' theory or whether this is one large innovation bubble heading for a crash.

This week I interview Jamie Burke from Outlier Ventures who has invested in a number of token-based blockchain startups. We discuss token economies, the fat protocol thesis which Jamie wrote a supporting piece about called the hungry protocol and the path to decentralisation.

#247 Ryan Selkis: Messari - Bringing Transparency and Self-Regulation to the Blockchain Industry

Aug 9, 2018

Description:

Since he started blogging as Two Bit Idiot in 2013, Ryan Selkis has been both industry insider and industry critic. Consistently calling out excesses and abuses, but also maintaining his sights on the long-term potential.

He recently founded Messari, a project that aims to bring more transparency and fairness to the industry. Messari has narrowed in on siloed, inaccurate and incomplete data as a key factor that allows insiders to profit at the expense of the public. We talked about the various ways in which Messari tackles that problem, ranging from a community-led effort to gather project data to the ambitious goal of a token-curated registry of stand-up projects.

Topics discussed in this episode:

Ryan's start into the crypto industry as pseudonymous blogger Two Bit IdiotHis insights from being the Digital Currency Group's first employeeCoinDesk and the challenges of journalism in cryptoWhy poor and inaccurate information benefits industry insiders at the expense of retail investorsMessari's mission to lead a self-regulatory effort for the crypto industryHow an open, distributed crypto data library could help create a fairer playing fieldThe plans for Messari's token-curated registry of projects following reporting standardsThe economics and game theory around the Messari token and TCR

DD Episode #2 - Checks And Balances

Aug 7, 2018

Description:

"There's a natural inclination to believe humans or structures are the problem, that if we just wrote software that made things run automatically and such malfeasance impossible, then we would end up in some gorgeous world. I think there's a lot to that concept, but you don't need to turn the keys over to the algorithms to make that happen."

'"Brian Behlendorf

Distributed Dialogues is a collaborative show between the Let's Talk Bitcoin Network and Distributed magazine. In each episode we introduce you to people who are using blockchain technology to change the way we interact with the world around us.

Blockchain technology has catapulted us into a fast-paced technological present of rapid software development and industry disruption. It seems like everyday a new project is proposing greater efficiency or protection for some aspect of our lives: healthcare, privacy, data storage, the list goes on. But at the same time, the role of the human, the developer, the citizen, is more significant than ever. Blockchain technology promises a more accountable future; however, if managed incorrectly, it could also make more room for digital tyranny. So, today's episode explores the various ways that people and organizations plan to use blockchain technology to do social good, without solely leaving control to algorithms.

In this episode we hear from a human rights activist, Alex Gladstein, and an early internet software pioneer, Brian Behlendorf, about how blockchain technology could check and balance power. In between, we talk with Flux, an open source blockchain-based project that is trying to revolutionize agriculture.

What Bitcoin Did #28 An Interview with Pierre Rochard

Aug 6, 2018

Description:

'œBased on our understanding of monerary economics, the outcome will be such that most of the value will accrue to one coin and one coin will at the very least be the world reserve currency, and even more than that, the one global money.'

'" Pierre Rochard

Interview location: Skype

Interview date: Sun 29th July 2018

From: Noded Bitcoin Podcast & Nakomoto Institute

In December 2016, I opened a Coinbase account to buy Bitcoin. It was a straightforward process: Google "buy Bitcoin", click on Coinbase link, register an account, deposit from the bank and buy. What I was not prepared for was the option to buy Etheruem too. I had never heard of it and had no idea what it was, but whatever, it was only $9 so I bought some of it too.

I had no bias; Bitcoin was something I had been aware of for years, though not on any deep economic or political level. Ethereum for me was another Bitcoin, but a cheaper Bitcoin, probably something many new entrants to Crypto feel at first. I didn't know about decentralisation, why it is important or the differences between the two coins, I just bought them without thinking too much about it. I didn't stop there, I bought Monero, Dash, Augur, Ripple and so on, endless other coins, endless other opportunities to make money.

Over time, I have found myself researching and trying to understand the business and use cases for each coin while becoming more aware of a group of Bitcoiners, known as maximalists, who have a significant disregard for any Crypto outside of Bitcoin. Having spent too much time arguing on Twitter and increasingly finding myself blocked by some of these people, I decided to spend more time understanding maximalism, what it is I am missing, why are this group of people so anti altcoins.

I have been reading Saifedean's book, The Bitcoin Standard and I binged on all episodes of the Noded Bitcoin Podcast by Pierre Rochard. This content, along with the bear market asking serious questions with regards to altcoin use cases has pushed me closer to understanding maximalism.

Am I a convert? No. My intention is always to keep an open mind and watch the market develop. I also believe that altcoins and tokens have a net benefit to Bitcoin and likely there will be some projects which find a place in the ecosystem. I do though understand there will only be one winner with regards to a digital store of value, and the most likely candidate for that is Bitcoin.

I expect there are many people like me, who have either come to Bitcoin recently or who do not have the broad technical, economic or political experience to understand the reasoning being maximalism. There are others too who see altcoins as an economic opportunity and do not care for the Bitcoin narrative.

I want to spend some time exploring Bitcoin, the history and reasoning for maximalism and why it is important. As such, this week I have an interview with Pierre Rochard, host of the Noded Bitcoin podcast and co-founder of the Nakamoto Institute. We talk about Bitcoin Maximalism, the net benefit of altcoins to Bitcoin and hyperbitcoinization.

Aug 3, 2018

Description:

"Every individual person that buys into cryptocurrencies needs to do their own research. You hear this all the time, but that is the truth of the matter. If you're going to put your money in, you should really understand what you are buying. You need to understand all the ways it could go right. You need to understand all the ways it could go wrong. You need to be completely willing to go along for the ride."'"Laura Shin

Distributed Dialogues is a collaborative show between the Let's Talk Bitcoin Network and Distributed magazine. In each episode we introduce you to people who are using blockchain technology to change the way we interact with the world around us.

Since the start of 2018, there's been increasing attention paid to how journalism is practiced in the cryptocurrency and blockchain technology space. Because of the youth and relatively small size of the space, drawing clear ethical lines has been grey. It can be argued that the pace of the industry's news cycle favors publication speed over accuracy. Also, the nature of covering a new type of asset class, can breed an environment for sensational journalism that, in the worst cases, becomes complicit in enabling give-away scams. How journalists maintain ethical integrity within this environment is still more art than science.

In this episode we will hear from two journalists, Laura Shin and Aaron Van Wirdum, about how they see and think about the ethics of their profession. In between, we will hear a sponsored interview with Jarrod Dicker, CEO of Po.et., a decentralized protocol for content creators to use for ownership and the monetization of creative assets.

The Bitcoin Game #57: BCH Lead Dev Amaury Schet

Aug 2, 2018

Description:

Welcome to episode 57 of‚The Bitcoin Game, I'm Rob Mitchell. I'm someone who feels a bit like a Bitcoin Maximalist, yet I still really wanted to learn about Amaury Sƒchet, lead developer of Bitcoin Cash. I like that many of Amaury's opinions seem fairly independent, rather than sticking to a party line. In this long-form interview, we talk about Amaury's initial interest in Bitcoin, why he started Bitcoin ABC, the software behind Bitcoin Cash, and what he saw as three critical mistakes he believed would prevent a big block fork from becoming the majority chain at launch. So BCH haters, put down the pitchforks for a second and give this a listen to better understand the French Bitcoiner known as Deadalnix.

#246 Guy Zyskind: Enigma - Providing Scalable Privacy-Preservation to Smart Contacts

Aug 2, 2018

Description:

Privacy and scalability are arguably the most challenging issues blockchains face. Scalable privacy-preserving state machines are inherently difficult. While cryptocurrencies like Zcash have proven trustworthy for simple transactions, privacy in smart contract platforms is an entirely different animal.

We're joined by Guy Zyskind, CEO of Enigma, a platform for scalable decentralized apps which preserves privacy. The Enigma network treats Ethereum smart contracts as 'œsecret contracts' and can perform computations on encrypted data. Inputs are broken into pieces and distributed to network nodes which perform computations on a segment of the full data. Once returned to the Ethreum chain, data is reassembled and may be decrypted to reveal the result. Leveraging secure multi-party computation and Trusted Execution Environments (TEE), Enigma prevents a malicious actor from gaining access to the input data and the computation results.

Topics discussed in this episode:

Guy's background and secure computation research at MITThe different approaches to privacy preservation in computingThe different multi-party computations methods and how they workFully Homomorphic Encryption in the context of MPCHow Enigma would preserve privacy for a simple application like tallying votesHow Enigma reads encrypted data from the Ethereum network and leverages Trusted Execution Environments to perform computationsHow developers build smart contracts which use EnigmaThe role of the Enigma token as an incentive mechanismHow Enigma ensures network availability by penalizing nodes which go offlineThe current state of the project and upcoming milestones

What Bitcoin Did #27 An Interview with Lyn Ulbricht

Jul 27, 2018

Description:

'œThat's why the founders wrote the 6th ammendment, to protect the accused from judges, just on their own, deciding that something is true without the ruling of 12 jury members.'

'" Lyn Ulbricht

Interview location: Skype

Interview date: Tue 23rd July 2018

Campaign: Free Ross

I first met Lyn Ulbricht in Austin in March earlier this year to discuss the case of her son, Ross Ulbricht, the founder of the online marketplace: The Silk Road. Our interview was before the decision of the Supreme Court to decline their petition to have the case reviewed.

Ross and the family are now left with very few options and are focused on raising awareness in political circles in search of clemency from the President.

If you are interested in the case and did not hear my first interview with Lyn, I would recommend listening to it or watching the interview on YouTube.

The petition to the Supreme Court focused on alleged violations of both the 4th and 6th amendments, yet the Supreme Court denied Ross a retrial and provided no comment. The case is widely misunderstood, often with those not aware of the full facts of the case raising the charge of murder for hire as justification for the sentence, a charge which has been dropped.

Ross is facing the rest of his life in prison for what was a non-violent crime, and for which the Drug Policy Alliance said:

In a world operating on the modus operandi of prohibition, users are often left in the dark and all sorts of other precarious situations; purchasing at music festivals is one glaring example. 'œThe overwhelming consensus among users of the Silk Road,' Bartlett realized, 'œwas that the quality of the product was far higher and its purity far more reliable than anything you'd find on a street corner.' Goodbye stranger-danger, dark alleyways, and unknown/unlabeled substances. The Global Drug Survey of 2015 confirmed this, stating 'œreduced rates of exposure to violence, less adulterated drugs, more confidence in product quality and removal from street dealing were clear benefits.' Will this access lead some to experimenting with other drugs? Sure, maybe. What's clear however, is within this system, people are able to better regulate and reduce harm associated with their drug use.

In this interview, I talk to Lyn about the denial of the Supreme Court, the support of the Libertarian Party, the petition for clemency and life for Ross inside the prison.

#245 Martin Becze: Primea - The Next-Generation Blockchain Operating System

Jul 25, 2018

Description:

Martin Becze is a researcher at Dfinity working on a next-generation 'œBlockchain Operating System' called Primea - a continuation of his work on the eWASM project from his time at the Ethereum Foundation. Primea is an actor based IPC layer intended for use with WebAssembly programs.

Martin first learned about Ethereum in 2014 and was immediately drawn into the possibilities opened by having a contracting virtual machines on a blockchain. While the EVM was impressive, Martin saw the possibility for greater usability and efficiency by using the new WebAssembly standards being created, and so led a team at the Ethereum Foundation in the creation of a new blockchain virtual machine, called eWASM. We learn about Martin's experience on the eWASM project and how the limitations of backwards compatibility led him to begin writing a brand new execution environment from scratch, rethinking some of the core designs and mechanics of the EVM - this project became known as Primea. Martin explains many of the fundamental design shifts involved with the Primea platform, including his focus on using the actor-based model and object capabilities (and what these even mean!). He also lays out how the Primea platform fits into the larger design of the Dfinity blockchain.

Topics discussed in this episode:

eWASM - Ethereum flavored WebAssembly (eWASM) Design.Primea - an actor based IPC layer intended for use with WebAssembly programs.WebassemblyDfinity - blockchain-based cloud computing project. Its aim is to develop a decentralized internet computer that will become the cloud 3.0.

What Bitcoin Did #26 An Interview with Richard Burton

Jul 24, 2018

Description:

'œI think the notion of a protocol which has 21 data centres to which you delegate priority to run smart contracts is a really interesting experiment, but nobody has explained to me why you need $4bn to run that experiment.'

'" Richard Burton

Interview location: Skype

Interview date: Wed 18th July 2018

Company: Balanced Software

Role: CEO

Nothing can prepare you for running your first startup. After the excitement of raising capital, founders are thrown into a race to achieve some form of product/market fit, whereby either they can close further funding or drive customer revenue to a level where the business can operate economically.

It can be both rewarding and hugely frustrating. Emotions can flick between joy and desperation as you rapidly iterate your product while dealing with a range of opinions, from users to shareholders.

Despite the stories from Silicon Valley, a tiny percentage of founders exit their startup with life-changing money. Even VCs expect the vast majority of their investments to fail, relying on a handful of successes to outweigh this. And despite the odds, entrepreneurship is an itch many have to scratch, usually not for the financial returns but for the success of building something which people use.

In this interview, I talk with Richard Burton from Balance.io about the challenges of being a CEO, delivering a return for investors and his frank opinions on EOS.

SAFE Crossroads #44, PARSEC Consensus Code Release, with Bart'omiej Kami"ski

Jul 19, 2018

Description:

In late May, MaidSafe released the whitepaper for PARSEC (Protocol for Asynchronous, Reliable, Secure and Efficient Consensus).

This week MaidSafe published the open source code for implementing PARSEC so that it can be used by any other projects which would find it suits their needs.

This episode, we talk to Bart…'omiej Kami…"ski, a developer who works on the MaidSafe team in the Routing section, and a co-author of the whitepaper.

We cover a lot of relevant concepts that should allow most anyone to get a deeper idea of how PARSEC works and how the SAFE Network uses it--without putting developers to sleep, either! We also talk some about how other projects may find PARSEC useful and wish to use and contribute to it.

What Bitcoin Did #25 An Interview with Toby Simpson

Jul 17, 2018

Description:

'œI don't like calling it artificial intelligence as it implies it is not real. At some point, we will create this digital intelligence, and it will think, communicate and exist. I think that is an exciting thing and can be something which transforms our lives in all sorts of positive ways.'

'" Toby Simpson

Interview location: Cambridge, UKInterview date: Tue 10th Jul 2018Company: Fetch.aiRole: Co-founder and CTO

In 2014 Stephen Hawking told the BBC: "The development of full artificial intelligence could spell the end of the human race." A fear echoed by many tech leaders, from Bill Gates to Elon Musk. The concern is the unknown unknowns; while technology has managed to improve our lives in many ways, machines operate by code based rules, but with AI, we are moving towards machines which can think for themselves.

AI is already part of our lives, from Google suggestions to Siri and Alexa learning about our personal preferences, but this is basic machine learning. More advanced questions are now being asked, for example with driverless cars, the car may have to make life and death decisions, should these be a programmed set of rules or is the computer left to think for itself? If the car is heading into a crash with another vehicle and the only option is to swerve into an oncoming bicycle, what decision should the car make?

What is the full extent of the risk? From autonomous weapons to destructive decisions to achieve something beneficial, AI faces many complicated moral and ethical questions. And the unknowns, a digital superintelligence released onto a global network, able to think for itself, hack and make decisions which humans would not.

Artificial intelligence innovation is accelerating, and regulation is light to non-existent. Companies such as Fetch are using machine learning to build a better future, for business and the public too, but are we heading into a dangerous period for humans?

In this interview, I talk with Toby Simpson, the co-founder and CTO of Fetch.ai. We discuss the world they are building for autonomous economic agents and broader opportunities and threats from artificial intelligence.

#243 Izaak Meckler & Evan Shapiro: Coda - A Succinct Blockchain

Jul 12, 2018

Description:

One of the key scalability challenges with public cryptocurrency blockchains is that their size grows linearly with the number of transactions. Mature blockchains such as Bitcoin and Ethereum contain >170GB and >1 TB of historical data respectively. New nodes joining these chains need to download this data and verify it in order to become a ""full node"". The number of full nodes is a key measure of decentralization, and difficulty becoming a full node translates into future centralization.

In this episode, we are joined by the duo of Evan Shapiro and Izaak Meckler, CEO and CTO at O(1) Labs respectively. O(1) Labs is a pioneering company that uses zkSNARK technology in order to construct a cryptocurrency blockchain, called Coda, that solves the blockchain size scalability bottleneck. New nodes joining the Coda network will be able to trustlessly boot up in under a minute by verifying cryptographic proofs that attest to the validity of the current chain. This technology has great potential to enable decentralization, and for one blockchain to be a light client of another blockchain.

Topics discussed in this episode:

Scalability challenges of current cryptocurrenciesBackground on O(1) Labs and their mission statementHow Coda uses succinct computational integrity technology (zkSNARKs) to enable further decentralization of blockchainsSnarky - a domain specific language for zkSNARK computationsCurrent state of Coda and roadmap

What Bitcoin Did #24 An Interview with Max Keiser & Stacy Herbert

Jul 7, 2018

Description:

'œThere is no win for the UK economically, you can change the colour of your passport and you might feel good, but you are not going to have any economic benefit at all from Brexit.'

'" Max Keiser

Interview location: London, UKInterview date: Thu 28th Jun 2018

In 2010, Max Keiser called JP Morgan Chase "the biggest financial terrorist on Wall Street" and started a campaign to crash the bank by encouraging people to buy Silver, leaving JP Morgan with a significant short position.

JP Morgan is just one example where Max has challenged financial institutions. Whether as a guest on TV, via Twitter or his media outlet, The Keiser Report, alongside his wife Stacy Herbert, Max regularly highlights the unethical practices of big banks and fiscal mismanagement from governments.

Max first introduced Bitcoin to the Keiser report in 2011; he realised that it was sound money, outside of the control of governments and banks, and The Keiser Report was the only media outlet promoting it. Max has continued to support Bitcoin and is one of the leading voices in the community, confident that the price of a single coin will reach over $100k.

In this interview, I talk to Max and Stacy about Brexit, the inevitable death of paper money and why Bitcoin is so important.

The Bitcoin Game #56: Paper Wallet Inventor Peter Kroll

Jul 5, 2018

Description:

Welcome to episode 56 of‚The Bitcoin Game, I'm Rob Mitchell. I met Peter Kroll at a Bitcoin conference about a year ago. When I asked Peter what his involvement was with Bitcoin, he told me he created the original Bitcoin paper wallet at BitAddress.org. I was pretty impressed, having used his tool often! Peter had kept it a secret that he was behind BitAddress.org until late 2014, and even since then, he's kept a pretty low profile. We cover a ton of topics in this exclusive interview, including Peter's introduction to Bitcoin, his paper wallet system, Bitcoin's division, and much more.

What Bitcoin Did #23 An Interview with Michael Sonnenshein

Jul 4, 2018

Description:

'œThe taboo nature of the asset class has been shrugged off'Goldman Sachs invested with Digital Currency Group in Circle and as soon as they did that it provided enough cover for pretty much every other bank or financial institution to get involved in the space.'

'" Michael Sonnenshein

Interview location: London, UKInterview date: Mon 18th Jun 2018

The institutional relationship with Crypto Assets has been one of light touch. Where banks had been dismissive of Bitcoin, but open to the opportunities with blockchain, the demand from institutional investors has contributed towards the changing banking narrative towards Crypto.

There is growing demand from institutional investors to hold Crypto Assets within their portfolio, yet these assets present new challenges from custody to regulation. Still, the need is driving forward a growing industry of solutions for those who want exposure to the market.

Institutions hold the capital but want to avoid the risk of handling the asset, but with companies such as XAPO and BitGo offering institutional custody solutions and the likes of Coinbase and Grayscale offering products which expose investors to the class without the headache of buying, selling and managing, institutions now have viable options to invest in the market.

The banking sector is adapting; Goldman Sachs and JP Morgan have opened trading desks, and the crypto market has gone from enemy to friend. As Crypto Asset and blockchain innovation continues to move at pace, investors do not want to miss out on the opportunity within these market.

With over $1.5bn in crypto assets under management ($3bn before the crash in January), Grayscale is one of the leading companies providing products for institutional investors. Their range of Single Product Investment Trusts and Diversified Large Cap Fund allow institutional investors to place bets on the Crypto market without the risk of custody or challenges associated with buying and selling.

Michael Sonnenshein knows both sides of the market. His career started in the traditional banking sector as an analyst at Barclays before he moved to JP Morgan and then onto Grayscale in 2013, where he is now the Managing Director.

In this interview, we discuss the interest from institutional investors, the impact of the bear market on sentiment and how Grayscale handles custody for $1.5bn in assets under management.

The Crypto Show: Crypto For Cannabis A Reality In Las Vegas

Jul 1, 2018

Description:

While Crypto for Cannabis has been contemplated for a long time, in legal dispensaries anyway, it's finally here. It is admittedly an awkward process through a token called "Tokes" on the "Waves Platform" and so far only available in one dispensary in Las Vegas.
However the effort to make that awkwardness a lot less awkward is taking place this week through an integration with the "Vaultlogic" BTM.Michael Wagner with "TokesPlatform"at a fraction of the price and time delivers what some other platforms promised but have yet to finish.Michael talks about that integration in the first half of this episode.In the second half I talk with the store manager of this Las Vegas dispensary "Pisos". Jeff Siebolt the Pisos manager discusses some of the hurdles in banking for the Cannabis industry and the leap Pisos is taking into the digital age by integrating Tokes.

#239 Grigore Rosu: The K framework - a framework to formally define all programming languages

Jun 12, 2018

Description:

In the past few years, we witnessed the development of multiple smart contract languages - Solidity, Viper, Michelson, Scilla etc. These languages need to enable developers to write correct, predictable behavior smart contract code. Each language development effort therefore ends up spending resources into building formal verification toolsets, compilers, debuggers and other developer tools.In this episode, we are joined by Grigore Rosu, Professor of computer science at UIUC [University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign] for a deep dive into the K framework. The K framework is mathematic logic and language that enables language developers to formally define all programming languages; such as C, Solidity and JavaScript. Once a language is formally specified in the K framework, the framework automatically outputs a range of formal verification toolsets, compilers, debuggers and other developer tools for it. Updates to the language can be made directly in K. This technology has massive implications for smart contract programming language development, and formal verification efforts in the blockchain space.We also cover his efforts to express the Ethereum virtual machine using the K framework, and to develop a new virtual machine technology, called IELE, specifically tailored to the blockchain space. Check out the episode to understand a game changing technology in the formal verification and smart contract safety space.

Topics discussed in this episode:

Grigore's background with NASA and work on formally verified correct softwareMotivations to develop K frameworkBasic principles behind the operation of K frameworkHow K deals with undefined behavior / ambiguities in a language definitionThe intersection of K framework and smart contract technologyRuntime Verification's collaboration with CardanoKEVM and IELE, smart contract virtual machines developed by Runtime VerificationBroader implications of the K framework for the blockchain industry

#238 Dr. Amrit Kumar & Dr. Ilya Sergey: Scilla - A Formal Verification Oriented Contract Language

Jun 5, 2018

Description:

With the rise of smart contract technology, we've become acutely aware of the need for smart contract code to accurately reflect the intentions of its author; and for the code to have certain (safe) behaviors in all circumstances. Creating the languages and software tools to enable ordinary developers to write safe contracts has become an intense research endeavor in the cryptocurrency space.

Scilla is a Turing incomplete intermediate level language; inspired from the paradigms of functional programming and formal verification; that makes it easy for smart contract developers to automatically prove statements about smart contract behavior. For example, Scilla could allow a future multi-signature smart contract author to mathematically prove that funds in that contract would always be retrievable by certain addresses (and never get stuck like the Parity incident). The ability to mathematically prove such safety properties of the smart contract has the potential to be an enabling invention prior to widescale use of this technology.

In this episode, we are joined by Dr. Amrit Kumar and Dr. Ilya Sergey to discuss Scilla, the smart contract language of the upcoming Zilliqa blockchain. In a previous episode, we've already covered the vision and technical approach of Zilliqa to solve the transaction scalability problem of permissionless blockchains. This episode focuses specifically on their smart contract language development efforts.

Topics discussed in this episode:

Updated on Zilliqa's progress since our last episodeThe technology of mechanised proofsDr. Ilya Serger's effort to mechanically prove safety properties of a blockchain consensus networkAims of the Scilla languageFuture capabilities enabled by the Scilla languageDeveloper experience and perspective using formal verification toolsHow Scilla compares to Michelson, Tezos' approach to smart contract languages with a similar end goalCurrent state of development of Scilla, and next milestones

Technology and Choice #34, On Writing and Research, with Robert Worstell

Jun 5, 2018

Description:

My old friend and sometimes co-host, Robert Worstell, returns and we explore the topic of research, especially from the angle of learning how to write fiction, and writing in general.

Over the years Robert has rolled up his sleeves and plunged into many subject areas to establish for himself what the underlying principles are that allow one to master the subject or action, used what he learned to be effective in the field, and then shared what he learned with others. In the process he has published an impressive volume of books, articles and stories, and learned to make a reasonable living doing so, sharing what he has learned so that others can benefit from what he finds.

In our discussion we also get in pretty close to the essence of what makes the pair of concepts "technology" and "choice" such a powerful tool to examine how to do things.

SAFE Crossroads #43, PARSEC - Efficient, Provable Consensus Has Arrived, with Pierre Chevalier

May 25, 2018

Description:

On Thursday evening, May 24th, 2018, MaidSafe released publically the PARSEC consensus protocol. PARSEC stands for Protocol for Asynchronous, Reliable, Secure and Efficient Consensus. It is being released under very permissive, open-source GPL and MIT licensing for potential use in a wide variety of circumstances by a wide variety of projects quite aside from the SAFE Network.

For the MaidSafe, the release of PARSEC puts the final major research barrier behind it, opening the door for a straightforward path to releasing the SAFE Network. More accurate timelines should now become possible.

Our guest is Pierre Chevalier, a software engineer with MaidSafe, who is one of the authors of the PARSEC protocol whitepaper.

We make an attempt to help listeners who lack a technical background to grasp the meaning and importance of PARSEC, as well as many aspects of the SAFE Network and consensus challenges in related projects. We also try to include enough to appeal to the more technically savvy.

Enjoy.

Technology and Choice #33, The Meritocracy Chronicle (Log 1, Entry 1)

Apr 30, 2018

Description:

The Meritocracy Chronicle will be a regularly recurring segment, dedicated to discussing and documenting the evolution of the game SFEOS and the principles of crowd founding. See links below for more details on both SFEOS and Crowd Founding.

The term meritocracy can have a variety of connotations and meaning, depending upon users and context. Here it is used only to indicate that the levers of control and influence within a group or activity are best and most justly yielded by those with "skin in the game," i.e., those who have invested time, energy, heart and effort to the creation and sustenance of the activity.

The advent of cryptocurrencies, crypto tokens, smart contracts, and other such tools offer a lot of possibilities that are worth exploring in terms of creation and maintenance of social activities, groups and economies. Building SFEOS is a project to implement and evolve those tools in an environment that is interesting, engaging and desirable, but where catastrophic events have less catastrophic real-world consequences. In other words, we want SFEOS to be a big, beautiful, inviting sandbox which will, hopefully, grow to be a potentially lucrative economic and social reality.

Having fun, sharing experience and learning are the keynotes.

The Meirtocracy Chronicle is your touchstone on how and where it's all going.

Enjoy!

#231 Ajay Prakash & Gavin Brennen: Qubit Protocol - Quantum Computing & The Coming Threat to Crypto

Apr 17, 2018

Description:

With the advent of mature quantum technologies, many of the critical cryptographic protocols which secure the Internet, financial transactions and even military secrets may become susceptible to new attack vectors. For instance, while it may take a computer millions of years to decipher a public key's corresponding private key, a sufficiently powerful quantum computer might achieve this in a reasonable amount of time. With this reality looming over us, many in the blockchain space worry that someone with access to a quantum computer might one day have the ability to steal their hard-earned crypto.

We're joined by Ajay Prakash and Gavin Brennen, founders of the Qubit Protocol, a decentralized blockchain-enabled governance protocol that is meant to select and fund the best startups in the quantum world. As a co-author of the recent paper 'œQuantum attacks on Bitcoin, and how to protect against them,' Gavin walks us through the primary threats that quantum computing poses on Bitcoin. Among the major vulnerabilities are hashing functions and Elliptic Curve algorithms used for digital signatures, both fundamental components of Bitcoin, as well as many other blockchain protocols.

Topics discussed in this episode:

What are quantum technologies and how they differ from the existing paradigmThe areas and industries which are to benefit most from quantum computingA refresher on hashing algorithms as one-way functionsWhat a quantum attack on Bitcoin mining might look likeHow Elliptic Curve digital signature algorithms work and how public and private keys are generatedThe three types of attacks a quantum computer could perform digital signaturesThe expected timelines for these attacks to be viableThe potential countermeasures which could circumvent quantum attacks on BitcoinThe Qubit Protocol as a DAO to fund quantum technology startups and the challenges of investing in the quantum spaceThe project's roadmap and upcoming ICO

Technology and Choice #32, A Case for EOS, with Chadrick Mahaffey

Apr 13, 2018

Description:

As promised in the last episode, Chadrick Mahaffey shares his presentation about EOS, the history behind it, the value proposition and why he is bullish on its mass adoption.

This is far from an exhaustive and authoritative treatise. It maybe even leaves one with more questions than answers. But it is a good foothold about the EOS platform as it is developing, and why an enterprise developer such as Chadrick could be excited about the possibilities of what should be enabled by it.

If you haven't listened to episode #31, about SFEOS, don't miss it. It highlights some of the uses to which Chadrick and others are looking to put EOS to work doing.

#230 Loong Wang & Taiyang Zhang: Republic Protocol - A Decentralized & Trustless Crypto Dark Pool

Apr 11, 2018

Description:

Dark pools have existed for as long as there have been financial markets. Over-the-counter, or OTC markets, are sometimes also referred to as 'upstairs trading,' evoking the era when firms and high-net-worth individuals would meet in the upper quarters of financial markets to make large trades privately. A dark pool is a private forum where one has access to high volumes of liquidity outside the boundaries of public markets. Orders and trades represented in dark pools typically remain confidential outside the purview of the general markets, thus preventing undesirable market impact.

#229 Ryan John King: FOAM - A Geospatial Proof of Location Protocol for Blockchains and Dapps

Apr 4, 2018

Description:

In just over ten years, geospatial tracking has gone from being a niche technology used by the military and outdoor enthusiasts to mass adoption, available to just about every connected device in existence. GPS and other location-tracking systems not only allows us to find our way and share our location but is critical to businesses and governments. However, while GPS has become a standard thanks to its accuracy and availability, decentralized applications can't rely on its location data as it can be easily spoofed and lacks reliability.

We're joined by Ryan John King, CEO of FOAM, a blockchain protocol which aims to offer secure location services independent of external centralized sources such as GPS. FOAM introduces a novel crypto-spacial coordinate system that is better suited to blockchains than standard addresses or latitude and longitude coordinates. It also provides a Proof of Location Protocol, which leverages long-range low-power radio networks, and incentive mechanisms, allowing network participants to arrive at consensus on whether an event or agent is verifiably at a particular point in time and space.

Topics discussed in this episode:

Ryan's background and how he became involved in the spaceHow geospatial tracking works and the pitfalls of GPSThe vision for FOAM and the problem it is trying to solveThe proposed Crypto-Spatial Coordinate StandardFOAM's Spacial Index fullstack visualizerThe Proof of Location Protocol proposed by FOAMLow-power radio networks and their role in the systemThe civil and business applications for FOAM

#228 Corey Todaro & John Bass: Hashed Health - Rebooting The Healthcare Industry

Mar 29, 2018

Description:

The healthcare industry is paradoxical. On the one hand, treatment technologies represent some of the most advanced science known to humankind, while some administrative tasks are still performed using paper and fax machine. Studies have shown that the administrative costs of healthcare can represent up to one-third of the total cost of care. Also, as diagnosis, treatment, and care, becomes increasingly data-driven and patient-specific, the industry needs to adopt more secure and robust technologies to manage patient data and communications between the patient and the different participants in the healthcare supply chain.

We are joined by John Bass and Corey Todaro, who are respectively CEO and CPO of Hashed Health, an innovation firm focused on accelerating the meaningful development of blockchain and distributed ledger technologies for the industry. Hashed Health works to build solutions which leverage blockchain to solve some of the most important challenges facing this sector.

Topics discussed in this episode:

John and Corey's respective backgrounds in the building technology for the healthcare sectorNashville as a hub for the US healthcare industryWhat is Hashed Health and what problems the company is trying to solveThe particular issues facing the US and global healthcare sectorsHow healthcare in the US differs from that of European countriesThe different entities of Hashed Health: Hashed Collective, Hashed Labs, and Hashed EnterpriseHashed Enterprise and the products they are building for the industry

#227 Peter Van Valkenburgh: Where US Cryptocurrency Regulation is Heading

Mar 21, 2018

Description:

Over the past year, as cryptocurrencies and ICOs started to go mainstream, we have seen a huge surge in regulatory activities.

Topics discussed in this episode:

The recent congressional hearings about cryptocurrencies and ICOsHow the US regulatory environment for cryptocurrencies evolved in the last yearWhether overly broad and contradictory regulation is emerging in the USUnderstanding the difference between CFTC and SECWhy CFTC regulating existing cryptocurrencies and SEC ICOs would be a good outcomeWhy decentralized exchanges will be a likely target by SECThe recent letter by FinCEN about ICOs and money transmissionComparing US to European regulation and why the US could end up more friendly

#226 Bob Summerwill: Sweetbridge - Rewriting the Operating System for the World Economy

Mar 18, 2018

Description:

According to the World Bank, universal financial access is vital to reducing poverty, and lack of access to credit plays a significant role in widening inequalities between developed and developing nations.For producers at the end of the supply chain, and who typically have little access to capital, waiting for customers to pay for their products puts them at high financial risk and threatens their livelihood. What if there was a way to bring more liquidity to global supply chains, by allowing anyone to create liquidity from their existing assets.

We're joined by Bob Summerwill, Community Ambassador at Sweetbridge, an ambitious project that aims to change the way global business operates at a fundamental level. While supply chains account for about two-thirds of the World's GDP, value is trapped in non-liquid assets sitting in warehouses, on store shelves, or in the form of outstanding invoices. Sweetbridge acts as a sort of OSI model for global business. In the Sweetbridge economy, working capital is freed up by enabling individuals and organizations to borrow from themselves interest-free.

Topics discussed in this episode:

Bob's background as a game developerHow Bob got involved with Ethereum and his role at The Ethereum FoundationWhat is the Sweetbridge and how it aims to transform global businessHow one can use Sweetbirdge to collateralize assets and borrow moneyThe different protocol layers of SweetbridgeHow Bridgecoin and Sweetcoin work, and their respective rolesThe role and goals of the Sweetbridge AllianceThe upcoming token saleThe project roadmap and upcoming product releases

Description:

On tonight's episode of "The Crypto Show," Rod from Dash Brazil and Brian Deery, Chief Scientist at Factom, join us in studio while we talk to Andrew Poelstra, Pieter Wuille and Benedikt Buenz through Internet magic boxes.

We discuss zero-knowledge proofs in all their varieties, details, and implementations. We discuss the differences between snarks, starks, and bullet proofs, their various advantages and trade-offs, and what problems each is most suitable for solving. Toward the end Benedict shares some quick info on the cryptographic material on which they are working at Stanford and gives credit to those whose work became the foundation for their "bulletproofs" work.

Technology & Choice #30, Decentralizing Energy for Real (Plus a BIG Crypto Easter Egg)

Mar 6, 2018

Description:

NOTE: There is an explosive Easter Egg of revelation in the body of this episode regarding cryptography. It is likely you haven't heard about it before, so keep hands on your bonnet.

"Alternative Energy" as we've known it has been a disaster for the most part. Everybody wants to "be green," do it right, be efficient, be really smart, but billions in government subsidies have mainly resulted in no progress except to line a lot of pockets and increase central control.

Professor Jim McCanney is an almost unicorn-level oddity amongst scientists: a truly independent scientist who has funded his own research and never signed non-disclosure agreements or other intellectual chains to any government, corporation or other institution. He's gone his own way and applied his genius where he thought it was needed.

Scientists and their institutions either love him or hate him. He's made many discoveries that contradict "main stream" scientists. You'll have to judge for yourself whether he connects with truth or not. Just remember to use objective rather than authoritarian standards in your analysis.

Prof. McCanney's Wing Generator and Water Project is a monumental effort to break the chains of centralized control of power and water, and give choice back to individuals and smaller groups. Real science and independent action are the road. Government subsidies? Not so much.

How about cheap, plentiful power that is available almost anywhere? Can real science do that? Can WE do that? Might Bitcoin miners profit from using this resource? You decide. It's sure worth giving a listen to someone with his track record.

#224 Jeff Garzik: Metronome - Of Bitcoin Satellites and Built-to-Last Chain-Hopping Tokens

Feb 28, 2018

Description:

We're joined by Jeff Garzik, who was among the very first developers to work with Satoshi in the early days of Bitcoin. Later, he was a core developer at Bitpay and even tried to put a Bitcoin node on a satellite in space. Today, he is co-founder at Bloq, a company providing enterprise-grade blockchain infrastructure. Bloq recently announced a new project called Metronome that challenges some of the design and governance principles of many public blockchain networks.

Metronome is cryptocurrency that sits on top of existing blockchains and aims to allow tokens to easily move from one network to the other. A series of standard blockchain contracts allow for daily descending price auctions to occur automatically, and for users to buy and sell the tokens using a Bancor-like system with built-in liquidity.

Topics discussed in this episode:

Jeff's background as a web developer at CNN and as a Linux developerHis early days in Bitcoin working with SatoshiHis thoughts on Bitcoin governance and lessons learned from the Segwit2X episodeThe lessons learned from founding BloqWhat is Metronome and what problem does it aim to solveMetronome's self-governance and how the system is meant to evolveThe different smart contracts which make up MetronomeHow Metronome allows MTN tokens to move to different blockchainsThe economics of the protocol and the descending price auction systemThe upcoming Metronome token sale and development roadmap

Feb 27, 2018

Description:

A live show from the Mexico City Bitcoin Meetup at EBC Escuela Bancaria Y Comercial which is also venue where a previous Latin American Bitcoin Conference was held. This was an Amazing event sponsored by Ripple and 150 people were turned away because there wasn't enough room.

SAFE Crossroads #40, The SAFE Network Primer

Feb 23, 2018

Description:

The main problems in talking about the SAFE Network are understanding (1) the enormous scope of the project, (2) the various specific innovations it represents, (3) how those innovations interrelate in the overall system, and (4) why the approach is fundamentally different than pretty much anything else that is being attempted.

Regardless of the technical level of the enquirer, Project SAFE has lacked a really good landing place to begin exploration into it.

In this episode we interview the originators and main contributors to the recently released SAFE Network Primer and give some very good insights to what the SAFE Network is about, why it's important and how to more easily approach and understanding of how it is designed.

Feb 22, 2018

Description:

That decentralized networks represent a massive investment opportunity is no longer a controversial view. In the last year alone, over 200 funds dedicated to investing in cryptoassets have been created.

But the principles and frameworks to understand this new world are still in its infancy. One fund at the forefront of advancing this understanding has been Multicoin Capital. Their Founders Kyle Samani and Tushar Jain joined us to discuss some of the concepts they use to invest in decentralized networks.

Google Glass and the origin story of Multicoin CapitalWhy the most used smart contract platform will produce the winning store of valueWhy they are bearish on BitcoinWhy money is best thought of as an adjective not a nounDifferentiating between work, payment and burn-and-mint tokensWhy work tokens capture network value better than payment tokensThe future of Multicoin
