Lyn Alden wrote a longform article about the 3 reasons why she is investing in Bitcoin. Lyn Alden is an investment strategist with a background in engineering and finance. She focusses on value investing with a global macro overlay. When I first heard Lyn Alden speaking I immediately knew, that I wanted to have her on my show, because her insights are smart, concise and I learned a lot about the global and US specific economical situation. I think it is one of the best interviews so far on my show. I hope you can take as much away from it, as I did. Our topics: Her Bitcoin storyFitness and MMAThe macro view on the economical situationThe price to be the world reserve currency nationReasons she is investing in BitcoinScarcity and network effectWhy bitcoin is superior to altcoinsComparing Libra and gold to BitcoinThe thing nobody is talking about What are the main reasons why you are bullish on Bitcoin?"The first reason is, that, Bitcoin has demonstrated that it has a pretty strong network effect over time. The second reason is the halving, most of the bullish price action of Bitcoin tends to happen in the first year or two after a halving. And then the final reason was the macro backdrop, it pretty much, couldn't be better for Bitcoin and also for things like silver and that's because with so much money printing with so much bailouts happening, if you look at it historically, just whenever debt levels reach this high, there's usually some sort of a macro economic event like a currency devaluation that happens over the subsequent decade." - Lyn Alden Full transcript on the episode page

The reasons to hold either gold or Bitcoin are similar, yet the two assets possess different tradeoffs and risks. Bitcoiners often refer to Bitcoin as digital gold or gold 2.0, as they consider it a store of wealth like gold. Whether you prefer one asset or are a proponent of both, these assets help protect individuals against the broken fiat monetary system, inflation and a debt-based economy. While the assets have many similarities, for some, it isn't gold and Bitcoin; instead, it is gold vs Bitcoin. Peter Schiff is a stockbroker, financial commentator, economist and gold bug who is hugely sceptical about Bitcoin. Schiff regularly derides Bitcoin on twitter and has done so since 2012 claiming that Bitcoin has no intrinsic value. In this interview, I speak to Peter Schiff, and we discuss what he doesn't like about Bitcoin, if he sees the alignment between Bitcoin and gold, the properties of sound money and if Bitcoin should be considered a store of value.

Libertarianism is something I have been wrestling with since I discovered Bitcoin. Hard money leads you down many rabbit holes, and questioning the role of the state is one of the deepest. At face value, libertarianism sounds perfect; more freedom, less intervention and limited or no state. However, I have struggled to understand how this would play out and if the idea of an anarchist society being civil and moral is just an ideological fallacy rather than a practical reality. Many libertarians see hyperbitcoinisation as the most likely manifestation of an anarchist society, in that it allows individuals to be self-sovereign, take control of their wealth and remove power from the government. In this interview, I talk to Knut Svanholm, author of Bitcoin: Sovereignty Through Mathematics and Bitcoin: Independence Reimagined. We discuss libertarianism, collectivism v individualism and how Bitcoin is the only path to a libertarian society.

Reason senior editor Elizabeth Nolan Brown has done extensive research and coverage on the topic of sex work and joins us in this episode to talk about it from a liberty-minded perspective. She also takes the time to define sex work vs. sex trafficking and explains how authoritarians use the latter term to punish and harm people who engage in sex work without coercion. She also details how inaccurate studies have led to paranoia about child sex trafficking. There's conversation about how radical feminism colluded with social conservatives to blur the definitions between consensual prostitution and sex trafficking, how criminalization of sex work protects rapists & abusers, whether there's such a thing as "safe" sex work, as well as the rise of webcamming and web galleries as a way for sex workers to avoid exploitation. There's talk about the recent Wayfair "scandal," as well as the "happy ending" massage parlor phenomenon and how it has become the #1 way for law enforcement to make themselves look like they are effectively fighting trafficking. You can't miss this incredibly compelling episode of Proof Of Love! About the Guest: Elizabeth Nolan Brown is a senior editor at Reason, where she writes regularly on the intersections of sex, speech, tech, crime, politics, panic, and civil liberties, and president ofthe libertarian feminist group Feminists for Liberty. Her writing has also appeared in publications such as The New York Times, the Los Angeles Times, The Daily Beast, Buzzfeed, Playboy, Fox News, Politico, and Libertarianism.org.

Pretty much all of you will know Guy, he's the creator and host of Bitcoin Audible, one of the most valuable educational resources in Bitcoin. He's also a buddy of mine and it's always fun to chill and chat with him for a couple hours. We go all over the place in this one - we talk open source software, privacy, our post-truth society, go pretty deep on Taproot and why it's such an important soft-fork upgrade, the emerging bitcoin-only industry and at the end we get bullish on price and the official beginning of the next bull run.

On this week's episode of the Unhashed Podcast: Golden Sachs predicts a dollar dump, Ledger let's customer data slip, and big tech is coming for you! Weekly News Wrap Up:This week Goldman Sachs Group Inc. put a spotlight on the suddenly growing concern over inflation in the U.S. by issuing a bold warning Tuesday that the dollar is in danger of losing its status as the world's reserve currency. 'œGold is the currency of last resort, particularly in an environment like the current one where governments are debasing their fiat currencies and pushing real interest rates to all-time lows,' and 'œ[There are now] real concerns around the longevity of the U.S. dollar as a reserve currency.' It's interesting that we're seeing this type of commentary from a stalwart (and gold bear) like Goldman. In an email to customers sent early Wednesday morning, Ledger stated that 'œOn the 14th of July 2020, a computer researcher ... notified us of a potential data breach on the Ledger website.... [W]e discovered an unauthorized third party had gained access to customer information. Contact and order details were involved. This is mostly the email address of our customers. Further to investigating the situation we have also been able to establish that, for a subset of customers were also exposed: first and last name, postal address, phone number and ordered products. Due to the scope of this breach and our commitment to our customers, we have decided to inform all of our customers about this situation. Payment information, credentials (passwords) or crypto funds are not impacted by this data breach. This data breach has no link nor impact on our hardware wallets and the Ledger Live application. Your crypto assets are safe and are not in peril.'

Squarespace, a leading drag-and-drop website creation service and hosting provider, took down the website of americasfrontlinedoctors.com . Bitcoin Mailing list - Ruben, what is it that you say you do here? Bitcoin Optech writes: Bitcoin Core is adding support for witness txid announcements. Prior to this, all Bitcoin nodes announced new unconfirmed transactions to their peers by the transaction's txid. However, txids don't commit to the witness data in segwit transactions, so a node that downloads an invalid or unwanted segwit transaction can't safely assume that any transaction with that same txid is also invalid or unwanted. That means nodes may waste bandwidth by downloading the same bad transaction over and over from each peer announcing that transaction. So far this hasn't been an issue '" honest peers usually don't announce transactions they wouldn't accept themselves, so only a disruptive peer that wanted to waste its own upload bandwidth would advertise invalid or unwanted transactions. However, one type of unwanted transaction today are the type that taproot plans to use. Each time a taproot-unaware nodes receives a taproot-spending transaction, it will download it, realize it is unwanted, and throw it away. This could be very wasteful of network bandwidth, both for older taproot-unaware nodes and newer taproot-aware nodes. The implemented solution is to announce transactions by their witness txid '" which includes a commitment to the witness data for segwit transactions. A taproot implementation in Bitcoin Core could then only relay transactions by their witness txid to prevent newer nodes from accidentally spamming older nodes.

Andy spent 17 years in the investment world on Wall Street, working for Goldman Sachs and is now a wealth manager at his familiy's firm West Cap Group.

After discussing some important information regarding purchasing Bitcoin, CoinDesk editor, Adam B. Levine discusses the advent of the Tatiana Coin and intention behind tokens in modern commerce. Referencing many projects Adam and Tatiana Moroz participated in, the discussion leads to real world examples of where token technology and blockchain technologies can improve the quality of life and commerce' when used correctly. Adam also discussed the many use cases explored at Tokenly.com including e-commerce, NFTs, and the advantages of various blockchains. About the Guest(s): Adam B. Levine joined CoinDesk in 2019 as editor of their new audio and podcasts division. Previously, Adam founded the long-running Let's Talk Bitcoin! talk show with co-hosts Stephanie Murphy and Andreas M. Antonopoulos. Finding early success with the show, Adam transformed the podcast's homepage into a full news desk and publishing platform, founding the LTB Network in January of 2014 to help broaden the conversation with new and different perspectives. In the Spring of that year, he went on to launch the first and largest tokenized rewards program for creators and their audience. In what many have called an early influential version of "Steemit"; LTBCOIN, which was awarded to both content creators and members of the audience for participation, was distributed until the LTBN was acquired by BTC, Inc. in January of 2017. With the network launched and growing, in late 2014, Adam turned his attention to the practical challenges of administering the tokenized program and founded Tokenly, Inc. There, he led the development of early tokenized vending machines with Swapbot, tokenized identity solution Tokenpass, e-commerce with TokenMarkets.com and media with Token.fm.

The global economy is in a precarious position. With the coronavirus enforced lockdowns closing down businesses around the world, central banks have been printing money at unprecedented levels to prevent economies from collapsing. While this has eased the pressure in Western nations, some smaller countries are starting to experience the impact. The currency in Lebanon has all but collapsed, and inflation in Zimbabwe has nearly reached 800%. Could high inflation be coming to the UK, Europe and the US? While the implication of a global economic meltdown may not be known for years, it is precisely this sort of situation that many Bitcoiners have highlighted as the perfect environment for Bitcoin to thrive. So, what comes next for Bitcoin? This interview is from a panel I recently hosted for Real Vision's The Crypto Gathering event, with Nic Carter, Tuur Demeester, Robert Breedlove & Alex Leishman. We discuss the current state of the economy, Bitcoin as a peaceful protest and what comes next.

Tatiana & Laren are joined by Dr. Tiffany Graham to help listeners gain an understanding of holistic wellness and how her practices approach to healthcare incorporates the best parts of traditional medicine with those of natural medicine and chiropractic care. The trio touch on topics ranging from the impact of hormones and eating habits on fertility to increasing food sensitivities in the world today to antibodies and how vaccines work. Did you know there is no single hormone responsible for estrogen levels? Or that estrogen levels impact how your body handles fat cells? Listen to the entire episode to hear why plant-based meat replacements such as Beyond Meat may not be good for everyone, how the growing number of additives in food today can do damage to your gut lining, and what Dr. Graham thinks about efforts to develop a COVID-19 vaccine. Don't worry, guys, the ladies plan to have Dr. Graham back for a future episode of Proof of Love to cover more on men's health! About the Guest: Even though she is not a native of Colorado Springs, Dr. Graham has always felt like this is home. Growing up across the country, summers were spent visiting family in Colorado Springs and adventuring in the nearby mountains. That is why, when the opportunity to move here and open up a practice in 2013 presented itself, she jumped on it immediately. Dr. Graham's journey and commitment to health started as a young athlete. Her commitment to pursuing excellence eventually led her to accept a scholarship and play collegiate volleyball at Minnesota State, Mankato. In 2005/6 she was awarded with All-Region honors and even Minnesota State's "Top Female Athlete of the Year". Following college, she accepted an offer to play volleyball professionally in Spain for 2006-07. Her passion for athletics eventually turned into a passion for health and a calling to help people live to their God-given potential. Chiropractic became the obvious choice to live out that calling, as she had been adjusted regularly since 5 years old, experiencing the benefits of having a healthy spine and nervous system, recovering quickly from injuries and sickness. She hopes to lead families, especially women, to lead and enjoy healthier lives through chiropractic and addressing the three T's (trauma, toxins, and thoughts).

In 2017, Bret Weinstein was thrust into the public limelight, when he objected to a change in the college's tradition of observing a "Day of Absence". Bret stating that "there is a huge difference between a group or coalition deciding to voluntarily absent themselves from a shared space in order to highlight their vital and under-appreciated roles, and a group or coalition encouraging another group to go away." It led to widespread protests and claims that Bret was "a racist" and the college was forced to close for two days. Following the Evergreen College protests, Bret outlined the threat of behaviour like this spilling over into the outside world. His concerns were proven correct after the death of George Floyd. In the days following Floyd's death, people took to the streets across the US and then across the world. What originated as a Black Lives Matter movement, quickly became infiltrated by far-left groups. In this interview, I talk to Bret Weinstein, a biologist and evolutionary theorist, who was at the center of the Evergreen College controversy. We discuss the US protests, bipartisan politics, inequality, and where Bitcoin fits into this and #Unity2020.

It is solving real world problems for many under-banked people across the globe, people who have limited access to a modern economy and empowering women is another big aspect for me. There are unfortunately still countries where women don't have free access they are not allowed to open bank accounts without permission of, for example, a family member. And Bitcoin is obviously solving that problem. And I'm personally very happy about that." - Elena Tonoyan "I'm sure that during the coming years and decades, we will see several booms and busts in Bitcoin.

iframe: On this episode of the Unhashed Podcast: Paypal may integrate buying and selling Bitcoin soon, The Canadian Government wants you to use glory holes to social distance while having sex, and soft forks, soft forks, SOFT FORKS GALORE! Weekly News Wrap Up:In a twitter thread that got a large amount of interest, there was a challenge laid down on twitter to trace a shielded transaction on Zcash. A user quickly identified the source transaction and then chaos ensued. How is this possible? Have ZK-Snarks been broken? In a CoinDesk Article earlier this month, the CENTRE consortium, run by Circle, the Poloniex exchange parent company and USDC creator, announced that it was going to freeze $100,000 worth of USDC at the behest of US law enforcement. Are we going to see more of this happening going forward? Could this happen on Liquid? The dumpster fire that is Etherium turns 5 years old this week. Happy birthday ETH! It looks like the rumors from a month ago that PayPal was getting into crypto have some merit to them. Coindesk is reporting that PayPal will be using Paxos as its brokerage for crypto buys. This begs real questions though: What will PayPals crypto experience be like? What will the impact be on the broader bitcoin ecosystem? Will this change PayPals strict stance on where you can and cannot send money? As we talked about a few weeks ago, according to theBlock, Coinbase was hawking its analytic wears to the DEA. But this past week, the Block found that there was an active 4 year contract with the Secret Service. While this is not surprising the price tag is' $250,000 over 4 years, or $62,500 per year. So, what is Coinbase's street cred worth to Brian Armstrong? Not much apparently. Aaron van Wirdum of Bitcoin Magazine summarized a number of soft fork activation proposals. Taproot, a proposed protocol upgrade that would improve Bitcoin's privacy and flexibility, is in its late stages of development. Bitcoin Core contributors agree that the upgrade would benefit Bitcoin, and so far it generally appears to be welcomed by the wider Bitcoin ecosystem as well. It's therefore likely that Taproot will make its way into a Bitcoin Core release, with other Bitcoin implementations possibly to follow. But one question remains: how should the Bitcoin network itself upgrade? Taproot is a consensus protocol change, which means that Bitcoin nodes must somehow switch from the old rules to the new rules without splitting the network into factions enforcing different rules. For various reasons, this has in the past sometimes proven to be a challenge. Improved strategies to activate protocol upgrades are now being contemplated.

Friend of The Tatiana Show, Lyn Ulbricht, returns to catch up on the fight to free her son Ross from prison. With more than 340,000 signatures on the Change.org petition to grant him a pardon, Lyn is going hard for one of the last courses of action that could set Ross free after nearly eight years of incarceration. Ross was convicted based on transactions that happened on the free trade platform, Silk Road. Each of the charges for which Ross was convicted is a non-violent offense. Yet, he is serving two life sentences plus 40 years in a maximum security prison. Tatiana, Josh, and Lyn recap the corrupt investigation, the dubious charges, the incredible trial, ongoing international efforts to set Ross free, and the toll it has taken on him and his family. About the Guest: Lyn Ulbricht is the mother of Ross Ulbricht, a peaceful 36-year old who was sentenced to double life plus 40 years without parole for all non-violent charges associated with his role in the Silk Road website.Since Ross's arrest Lyn has strived to direct awareness to the issues at stake and how the case impacts freedom in the digital age. She has spoken at numerous events; appeared on many TV, radio and podcast shows, including Reason TV, CNN, HuffPost Live and Fox; and conducted interviews with major and alternative media, including the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, Forbes and The Guardian. She is also featured in the documentary, "Deep Web."When not working to raise awareness and gaining support, Lyn focuses on raising funds through www.freeross.org.

In late 2019 and early 2020, the global economy was showing signs of stress. Even before coronavirus, we saw the Fed having to step in and provide liquidity for the repo market and issuing rate cuts. But the rapid spread of coronavirus around the world and the resulting lockdowns has further exposed cracks in the global economy. Stock markets experienced high volatility as the economic impact of businesses closing hit with Wall Street suffered its worst day since '˜Black Monday' and oil prices going negative for the first time in history. Governments responded with unprecedented levels of quantitative easing, and some countries are now seeing their currencies collapsing. Many analysts have suggested that rather than coronavirus being the cause of this economic downturn, it was instead the black swan event that acted as the pin that popped the bubble and the enormous debts that have been amounting for decades was a disaster waiting to happen. Over the past year, I have spoken to several economists including Raoul Pal, Caitlin Long and Travis Kling, all of whom warned that a financial collapse is coming. So, what is happening at the moment, what can we expect to see next, and how can we all prepare? This interview is from a panel I recently hosted for Real Vision's The Crypto Gathering, with Raoul Pal, Caitlin Long & Travis Kling. We discuss the early warning signs of systemic issues in the global macroeconomy, what might happen next and where Bitcoin fits into this.

Throughout 2019, President Trump's re-election campaign looked to be on steady ground, but 2020 has been a very different story. Following the outbreak of COVID-19, countries across the world have gone into lockdown. However, Trump, Fox News and a large number of key Republicans initially played down the risk of the pandemic, and Trump has faced fierce criticism for his lack of decisive action. The US has been the most severely affected country, with around one quarter of all recorded infections and deaths. During this same period, the killing of George Floyd sent shockwaves across America. Millions took to the streets to protest police brutality and to campaign for Black Lives Matter. Many of these protests quickly turned violent and, again, Trump was criticised for his lack of decisive action and leadership, epitomised when he retreated to his bunker rather than addressing the nation. The pandemic and protests have opened up the election race, and while Trump has furiously Tweeted, Joe Biden has mostly retreated from public view. Support for Trump appears to be dropping, and most recently, Trump's rally in Tulsa was only attended by 6,200 people in attendance, in a building with a 19,000 capacity. While 2020 has been mostly negative for Trump's re-election campaign, he does have fiercely loyal supporters, and while the polls indicate Biden has a clear lead, this will likely be another close election. I tweeted that I would bet anyone $5,000 in Bitcoin that Trump would lose. American Hodl (@hodl_american) took me up on the bet. Phil Geiger, from Unchained Capital, agreed to arbiter the debt, holding the 3rd key in a multisig wallet we set up using Unchained Capital's Caravan product. In this interview, Hodl, Phil and I discuss the bet, US politics, if the current economic and social situation is positive or negative for Trump, populism, voter suppression and the election race.

"Bitcoin's capped supply is one of its most well-known features, and it is regularly cited as a hedge against inflation caused by government money printing.Most people don't know that Bitcoin has another attribute that acts as a hedge against a far larger risk." - Nick Neuman Today we read a short article on Bitcoin Magazine that shines light an incredible benefit of the Bitcoin system that isn't so widely understood. It isn't simply an independent monetary policy, its an independent monetary system, and by that fact a hedge against the instability of much more than merely inflation.

My guest today is Gigi a software developer and computer scientist. Gigi wrote "21Lessons", a book in which he shares his learnings from falling down the Bitcoin rabbit hole. Two years ago he quit his job and started to work solely in the Bitcoin space. "Bitcoin already has all three functions of money. It is a store of value, medium of exchange and unit of account. It's just not evenly distributed yet." - Gigi "As I see Bitcoin evolve, I think it will be a global settlement layer for something approximating central banks. And since it's obviously superior to gold and every other form of money we had, like Bitcoin is by far the best money we ever had." - Gigi Our topics include: Building reputation in the Bitcoin spaceAll mistakes he madeHow to educate people about BitcoinThe different entry points to BitcoinExplaining scarcityThe three functions of moneyBitcoinization will happen in 10 yearsLightning Network adoption and usabilityWhy Bitcoin does not "move fast and break things"Current technical developments in BitcoinMessaging on top of Bitcoin Full transcript on the episode page

The very early believers in Bitcoin tended to fall into two camps, the Libertarians who were drawn to the censorship resistance & self-sovereignty of Bitcoin and the tech-savvy developers who saw a new experimental technology that was the first to truly offer a distributed & decentralised digital money. As Bitcoin has gained in value, it too has grown to appeal to audiences that don't necessarily fit into these two camps. Fewer tech-savvy people have come to Bitcoin for '˜number go up' more than the censorship resistance and decentralisation. For these people, coming into Bitcoin can be hostile and confusing. The community is understandably frosty to those not willing to learn about the importance of holding their own keys, protecting their privacy and being self-sovereign and the software can be confusing and unintuitive. For newcomers running a node is difficult, holding your private keys daunting and interacting with the community scary. So, improving both the UX and marketing of Bitcoin is key to attracting less technical people to the space. In this interview, I talk to Dan Held the Director of Business Development at Kraken. We discuss the importance of easy user experience, how Bitcoin can be a daunting experience, self custody and why marketing matters.

Liberty activist and longtime friend of Tatiana's, Ernest Hancock, turns the tables in an interview of her that he recorded earlier this month at PorcFest. The pair discussed everything from why Tatiana wants to leave New Jersey and rent control to the real-life playing out of Ayn Rand's "Atlas Shrugged." Tatiana and Ernie discuss, in depth, her entry to the liberty activism scene around 2011, the changing philosophies of the liberty and crypto spaces, Trump's impact on everything from political discourse, social media, the validity of mainstream media, and more. Tatiana dives into the impact COVID-19 and the quarantines have had on her personal life and on people around her and where her various business projects are heading. Ernie shares the inspiration for Freedom's Phoenix and how his views and goals have changed over his career as a liberty activist. Listen in to hear how both Tatiana and Ernie feel about the current protests, lockdowns, and calls to defund the police and how they are pushing through this unprecedented time in the U.S. and how they think America moves forward, toward liberty.

In an inflationary Keynesian economic system, governments target low inflation to ensure a healthy economy and steady growth; however, inflation functions as a hidden tax on savings. Inflation also leads to a drop in purchasing power which drives the incentive to spend and invest rather than save. Deflation, the opposite to inflation, is when the price of a basket of goods and services drops. Unlike inflation, deflation means the purchasing power of your savings increase over time and therefore, incentivises saving as opposed to spending. Many traditional economists see deflation as dangerous as people will reduce spend with an expectation of products becoming cheaper, but this leads to an economy based on growth at any cost. Jeff Booth, author of The Price of Tomorrow: Why deflation is the Key to an Abundant Future presents an alternative argument. In this interview, I talk to Jeff Booth, and we discuss the current economic & social situation, how an inflationary system has caused inequality & division and how Bitcoin & deflation can fix this.

Shownotes:On this week's episode of the Unhashed Podcast: Bitcoin gets funding out the ass! Shitcoine and First Kiddie Fiddler Brock Pierce announces his independent run for president. And'Hamas has raised a laughable amount of money in crypto. Is this good or bad? Weekly News Wrap Up:BitcoinMagazine writes: As the saying goes: when it rains, it pours. And lately, the Bitcoin Core development community appears to be experiencing a welcomed shower. On June 18th, Cryptocurrency exchange OKCoin and HDR Global Trading Limited, which operates the cryptocurrency exchange BitMEX, announced a $150,000 grant for Core developer Amiti Uttarwar. The donation follows similar gifts from both donors, as well as others, that have been announced in recent weeks. Uttarwar focuses on Bitcoin's peer-to-peer layer, notably reducing the frequency that wallets attempt to rebroadcast transactions and, therefore, the frequency with which transaction information is revealed through her work on PR #18038. From the HRF's site: The Human Rights Foundation has launched a fund to support software developers who are making the Bitcoin network more private, decentralized, and resilient so that it can better serve as a financial tool for human rights activists, civil society organizations, and journalists around the world. An initial gift from the fund was given to Chris Belcher, a UK-based developer working on a technique called 'œCoinSwap' (originally invented in 2013 by Greg Maxwell) which helps defeat state and corporate financial surveillance by making it much harder for authorities to trace Bitcoin transactions. As announced on BTCpayserver's blog, We're thrilled to announce that the BTCPay Server Foundation has received a grant of 150,000 USD (received and held in Bitcoin) from Kraken. This is the biggest donation we've received so far. Founded in 2011 by Jesse Powell, Kraken is one of the world's largest, oldest and most reputable bitcoin exchanges. Based in San Francisco with offices around the world, their core mission is to accelerate the adoption of cryptocurrency so that anybody can achieve financial freedom and inclusion. Everyone's favorite Bitcoiner Foundation Chairman has tossed his goofy-ass fedora into the presidential ring! Yes, Brock Pierce is now running for president. No he doesn't think he can win, but in comparison to Ron Paul, he stated that he was running to bring certain issues to the forefront. An interesting statistic from a new Leigh Cuen Coindesk article 'œTo date, evidence suggests terror groups like Hamas are using only small amounts of bitcoin, at volumes far smaller than what the civilian population in the region is using. In fact, the analytics firm Chainalysis estimates most campaigns by terror groups like ISIS have raised 'œless than $10,000' worth of cryptocurrency, less than a single Palestinian trader typically sells in a week.' From the Desk of Coin (ahem...Coindesk): More than 75 companies in the blockchain and cryptocurrency industry collected at least $30 million in payroll loans from the U.S. government. The U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) published details of its Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) on Monday, revealing a who's who of major and minor firms in the industry. Loan recipients included Zcash developer Electric Coin Company, Ethereum venture studio ConsenSys and Rainberry Inc., the U.S. entity acquired by Justin Sun's Tron Foundation at the time of its BitTorrent acquisition in 2018. Crypto venture firms were also represented on the list, including Polychain Capital and Unchained Capital. Price Analysis:Number go sideways One Final Note:Firstly, Support us on Patreon.

New concerns have been raised around Apple's business model after the company rejected future updates for Basecamp's newly launched email app Hey. Apple initially approved the app, but then put it on hold '" meaning Basecamp couldn't submit any updates or bug fixes until it added an option for users to subscribe to Hey's service through an in-app purchase. Basecamp has disputed this decision, saying it shouldn't be forced to allow users to sign up for Hey through in-app purchase, subjecting then to Apple's 30% tax on its subscription fee. HEY's predicament has highlighted inconsistencies in Apple's policy execution, having allowed other apps with similar business models to exist in the App Store without mandatory in-app subscriptions. They have also made exemptions for streaming applications and rivals; Amazon and Netflix. The case has raised questions about how Apple is operating and whether it's exercising an anti-competitive advantage over services from third-party developers. HEY's fight comes as the company is already facing two EU antitrust investigations after Spotify and other firms filed similar complaints to those raised by Basecamp. In this bonus episode, I talk to Basecamp Founder & CTO, David Hansson. We discuss Apple's threats to remove their email app HEY from the App Store and Apple's monopolistic business model.

Chrissa McFarlane, CEO and Founder of Patientory, is tackling global need: secure health information management that is concerned with patient privacy. And McFarlane sees blockchain technology as a part of the solution. McFarlane realized the world has a very big problem: the healthcare industry is slow to innovate and inefficient. Nothing in recent memory has made this more clear than the current COVID-19 pandemic.

"Money is a tool for trading human time. Central banks, the modern-era masters of money, wield this tool as a weapon to steal time and inflict wealth inequality." - Robert Breedlove Breedlove brings us another excellent write up, this time on the nature of monetary masters and the power dynamic they embody. Exploring the Trans-Atlantic slave trade, the monetary origins of the decline of Western Africa, the logos, and the free speech of human value and time, "Masters & Slaves of Money" is a brilliant investigation to the monetary hierarchy of our world, and how its control has shaped history. We will break through this piece in 2 parts, starting with today, Part 1 of "Masters & Slaves of Money" by Robert Breedlove.https://medium.com/@breedlove22/masters-and-slaves-of-money-255ecc93404f Secure your Bitcoin savings with the best and lowest cost auto-buy service in the ecosystem at SwanBitcoin.com/guy Thanks to the Let's Talk Bitcoin Network & Bitcoin Magazine for including Bitcoin Audible and spreading these incredible works to everyone in the Bitcoin space!

Privacy is a fundamental human right, and with society migrating away from physical to digital cash, we are losing one of the remaining ways to transact privately. Bitcoin is an entirely public ledger, in that every transaction is broadcast to everyone running the Bitcoin software. Anyone can view these transactions, but there are ways to obfuscate your spends and make it more difficult, or even close to impossible to follow the trail of transactions. Currently, the most widely used method for adding privacy to bitcoin is to use CoinJoin services like Wasabi or Samourai. These wallets allow you to add your UTXOs to a transaction along with numerous other participants. Coinjoin can significantly increase anonymity, depending on the number of other participants. Originally put forward by Greg Maxwell in 2013, Coinswap is a somewhat different method of anonymising your footprint on the Bitcoin network. Chris Belcher recently took the idea and put together a proposal and has received funding from the Human Rights Foundation to develop it. In this interview, I talk to Bitcoin developer Chris Belcher and Alex Gladstein, the Chief Strategy Officer at the Human Rights Foundation. We discuss financial privacy as a human right, Bitcoin privacy, financing devs and Chris' work on Coinswap.

Shownotes: On this episode of the Unhashed Podcast: Blockstream's liquid bridge is bugged, Lightning Network may be vulnerable to an easy attack, and Casa's Jameson Lopp is shilling their wallet without being upfront about the 100% trust assumptions you must make with Casa to use it or even their 2-of-3 product. On top of this, there is no mnemonic'but at least google gets to hold your backup, right?! Weekly News Wrap Up:A malfunction in Blockstream's Liquid bridge for Bitcoin (BTC) resulted in a Blockstream-owned 2-of-3 multisig contract briefly controlling over 870 BTC, worth $8 million. This was discovered on June 26 by James Prestwich, founder of blockchain software development company Summa, which contributed to the tBTC project. According to his findings, the spending script for the transaction was configured so as to transfer control to a simple 2-of-3 multisig contract after 2,015 blocks, or about two weeks. While this is intended behavior, this is only meant to be triggered as a last resort if the Liquid network were to collapse, as explained by its documentation. Prestwich found the issue just as the waiting period expired, which created a window of about thirty minutes, or three Bitcoin blocks, during which the emergency multisig could have taken control of the money. This did not result in a loss of funds as the emergency multisig is held by Blockstream. [Blockstream post-mortem] Two Bitcoin researchers claim to have found a way to steal funds on the Bitcoin Lightning Network. In a research paper, titled 'œFlood & Loot: A Systemic Attack On The Lightning Network,' researchers Jona Harris and Aviv Zohar, both of Israel's Hebrew University, found that attackers can exploit a bottleneck in the system to drain wallets of funds. The researchers found that an attacker has to attack 85 channels simultaneously to make some money. They also show that it's fairly easy for them to find unsuspecting victims. All vulnerable nodes must do is show a 'œwillingness to open a channel' with an attacker. 'œWe discover that a vast majority of active nodes (~95%) are willing to open a channel upon request, and are therefore susceptible to becoming victims in our attack,' wrote the researchers. Casa has released their free version of the Casa Keymaster app. With it you can run a seedless wallet. The key will be backed up between your own cloud storage and the Casa server. Writing down words will not be needed. The free setup only allows for one key only, for multisig a subscription is required. 'œWe're excited about launching a free and simple bitcoin wallet that anyone can use,' said Nick Neuman, Casa's CEO, in a statement shared with Bitcoin Magazine. 'œMore people are turning to Bitcoin as a long-term investment, but they may not know how to store it safely' We want to offer this simple wallet for beginners for free, so they can start their Bitcoin journey safely.' 'œThere is no location tracking, no data tracking and no invasive third-party analytics: users simply sign up with an email and an alias to start improving their Bitcoin security immediately,' according to a press release. Variable amount chaumian coinjoin is one step closer to becoming a reality, thanks to WabiSabi. This new protocol for Wasabi wallet has just been announced on the Bitcoin mailing list, and it's something to be excited about. Users can come together and create a coinjoin with any inputs & outputs that they want, by communicating with a single server that learns nothing about the relation between inputs & outputs. While this does NOT address amount correlation by examining the transaction on the blockchain, it lays the foundation for future work in this direction. The protocol is quite versatile and also lends itself to e.g. Chaumian ecash, for which variable amounts can be extremely useful. In technical terms: the server essentially signs "blind" Pedersen commitments of which the owner can prove arbitrary statements in

"We're in it to win." Tatiana sits down with Libertarian Party nominee for Vice President Spike Cohen in this episode of The Tatiana Show and he holds nothing back in explaining why he and Presidential nominee Jo Jorgensen are the answer to the country's two-party woes. Spike recounts his evolution from young neo-con to liberty-lover and shares how his initial dislike of Ron Paul grew to admiration of his position on foreign intervention and fiscal responsibility. Ultimately, leading him to sell the business he built to pursue spreading liberty full time and running for the VP nomination in the Libertarian Party. Spike's reading list is one that every libertarian will recognize: Bastiat, Spooner, Hayek, Von Mises, Rothbard, and more. His articulate explanation of his positions on things like handling social media censorship, the mainstream media, and what libertarians everywhere will get out of this election are enough to get Tatiana excited about November. Tatiana and Cohen cover issues ranging from police brutality and qualified immunity to the drug war to the Fed's interference in markets and government overreach in every area of Americans' lives, and how the Libertarian Party has faced an uphill battle to get access to debates and media, but that they are meeting those challenges and exceeding their expectations. Make sure to check out The Tatiana Show interview with his running mate, Jo Jorgensen. About the Guest: Jeremy "Spike" Cohen is the Libertarian Party's 2020 Vice-presidential nominee, running with Dr. Jo Jorgensen, the LP's presidential nominee. He promotes a vision of common-sense Libertarian solutions that will make us all more free, safe, and prosperous.Cohen started a web design company in 1999. He retired from that 3 years ago to promote libertarian ideas fulltime. His great aim is to make people more familiar with voluntary solutions and property rights.He is the host of My Fellow Americans, the co-host of The Muddied Waters of Freedom, and the co-owner of Muddied Waters Media, a podcast platform that reaches millions.Cohen hosts two live programs every week, interacting with countless people across the political spectrum. This experience has convinced him more than ever that the Democrats and Republicans have both failed us.He believes Dr. Jo Jorgensen is the right person to counter Trump and Biden. He hopes to work with her to end wars, free the innocent, and end the infringements that impede voluntary problem-solving. He brings over 20 years of experience in leadership positions to complement Dr. Jorgensen's knowledge and talents.

With the current global economic outlook and rise in social unrest, we are living in unprecedented times. The coronavirus pandemic, subsequent lockdowns and preventative measures put in place by governments around the world has led to many businesses closing or relying on bailouts, and jobless figures are amongst the highest since records began. The killing of George Floyd at the hands of the police has seen protests against racial inequality have spread across the world. In the US, especially, these protests turned have turned into riots with looting, buildings burnt down and violent clashes. During this time of uncertainty, the S&P500 and Dow Jones Industrial Average have both climbed ~40% since the drop in March, seemingly proving that the markets can behave irrationally. Some analysts are pointing to dangerous signals that we are heading towards the collapse of currencies. Are all of these combined events the perfect storm for Bitcoin? In this interview, I talk to Preston Pysh, author, engineer & the host of The Investor Podcast. We discuss the global macroeconomy, deflation vs inflation and why now Bitcoin is more important than ever.

Location: Zoom Date: Thursday 28th May Project: Microsoft Role: Head of Decentralised Identity Social media is omnipresent with most all of us have a Twitter, Facebook or Google account, using them every day for both personal and business. We build connections, relationships and trust through them. However, these companies implement strict controls over the content on their platforms with shadowbanning and deplatforming growing. The controls which they enforce on their platforms can have further-reaching consequences. As well as offering access via a standard email and password, most websites also provide the option to login via a Facebook, Twitter or Google account. If one of those services decides to deplatform you, then you could lose your account with any associated websites. To solve this issue and improve on the nature of IDs, Microsoft has launched their Decentralised Identity program in which they offer users a decentralised personal identifier, which is under your control, using the most immutable and secure solution; Bitcoin. In this interview, I talk to Daniel Buchner, Head of Decentralised Identity at Microsoft to discuss how a Bitcoin-based decentralised identity system works. We also talk about libertarianism, coronavirus and the protests over the death of George Floyd.

Tatiana and Lauren devote this episode of Proof of Love to catching up and discussing Tatiana's upcoming travels to California, dating during COVID-19, dating apps, and finding true love. Finally escaping from the coronavirus lockdowns, Tatiana is traveling from coast to coast, in part to support her joint project with Alyze Sam: #ProofofGratitude. Tatiana and Lauren discuss life after lockdown in California and the dating scene, leading to Tatiana's surprise over the policies of "content" site, Only Fans. " Billed as a site for exclusive content for subscribers, a way to "make money and interact with your fans!", many have come to the conclusion that Tatiana reaches: that it is a modern, digital twist on the "Sugar Daddy ( or Mama) relationship. And the elite iOS dating app, Raya, with its elaborate application process and "utopian" vision, offers Tatiana a little facetious fun. Lauren shares her experiences with learning about her relationship wants from her parents' example and from relationships gone wrong,and reminds that all you probably really need to do to find love is to be open to it. Tatiana and Lauren venture into a great discussion about what true love is, the stumbling blocks to falling into it, and if self-improvement can help get you in the right place at the right time ( or wrong place at the wrong time) to find love.

Location: Zoom Date: Friday 5th June Project: Coindesk Role: Journalist The role of a journalist is to question, educate and inform. A truly free press is a fundamental pillar of a free society, and unbiased and objective reporting is crucial in getting a broad understanding of any industry. News corporations are now arguably more partisan and divided than ever before, highlighted by how Fox News and CNN have become partisan propaganda outlets. Fox News is pro-Trump and will defend him and his policies almost without exception; alternatively, CNN is pro-democrat and will question almost everything Trump and his administration do. Within Bitcoin, there can be a similar lack of objectivity and willingness to challenge the status quo critically. The Bitcoin community are often referred to as its immune system, by being aggressive and vocal about anything that seemingly questions the direction or ethos of the network they protect it from coercion and negative outside influences. While this is mostly a useful stance in an industry that has more than its fair share of scammers and questionable projects, this can make the role of journalism within Bitcoin tricky to navigate. Despite long and firmly held beliefs, Bitcoin evolves, as does the size of the user base and how they use Bitcoin. Journalists must challenge commonly held beliefs, even if these means hard criticism from Bitcoiners. In this interview, I am joined by Leigh Cuen, a journalist and writer at Coindesk. We discuss the importance of journalism, Bitcoin as a peaceful revolution and the strict narratives that are held by Bitcoiners.

If choosing between terrible and awful for president this year makes you want to take a hard look at seasteading or joining an autonomous zone, this episode of The Tatiana Show may just offer some hope.

The episode is sponsored byeToro.comandThe Internet of Money Vol. 3On today's show we're going back to basics.While bitcoin and digital bearer assets in general are an incredibly important technology, the reason they're likely to be important to the future has little to do with the token and everything to do with the context surrounding them: The world we live in every day, where government controlled money is abused for the benefit of the few and to the detriment of the many.* * *"Bitcoin is a way of achieving consensus. And consensus is a way for a bunch of people who may disagree on things to agree to a singular fact that they then execute, so imagine if Congress actually had bipartisan support to unilaterally pass a bill every ten minutes... That's basically what's occurring in Bitcoin.There's nothing more political than money because money affects everything else, and yet Bitcoin works. I think there's a lot of people looking at trying to reform the governance structures of the places that they're in, what they really should be doing is looking at things like Bitcoin and frameworks using blockchains to say "OK, how can we come to consensus over this or that governance issue of which money would be one... But I think the most transformative and phenomenal thing it'll do is, Nakamoto Consensus and then just blockchain governance writ large is a phenomenal way to have self governance.We see these breakdowns and these desires to federate cities and the way decisions are made, [but] maybe rather than turning to a government based political solution, a community based solution using something like a blockchain would be something with a lot greater staying power and impact."- Jonathan MohanTopics:Who is the economy still working for, and who is it not serving?What's wrong with money that makes alternatives attractive?Why and how is Bitcoin disconnected from the current system?What's the value in the US and western Europe compared to the value in less developed parts of the world?What role does speculation play in the story of bitcoin?Bitcoin's been around now for more than ten years.Are we on track to make a difference?What's the normal adoption curve for disruptive or revolutionary technologies?What IS a disruptive or revolutionary technology? Who is bitcoin potentially disrupting?Does being part of the bitcoin community make you politically affiliated, or represent a distinct political viewpoint?Selected excerpts from this week's discussion:"Money, because it's central to markets, which are central to the ways we organize societies is on of the most powerful technological tools that exists. If you then put the control of that technological tool in the hands of a monopolistic entity of any kind, whether that's facebook libra or the US dollar under the federal reserve or whatever else it is, what happens is that that tool can be used to exert power on the way society is governed and on the way resources are allocated in a non-transparent way that is not subject to political correction or adjustment by democratic means.And when you take a tool that's that powerful and take it out of the oversight and control of democratic institutions, then it attracts the kinds of sociopaths who want to control that lever of power and they use it to distort the market in their favor. And that's the really dangerous aspect of money, because it's not simply neutral fuel for an economy or some forms of it are not neutral fuel for the economy. I've talked about this in the past as 'Money is a system of control in addition to its function of medium of exchange, unit of account, and store of value.And when it can be used more effectively as a system of control, then it starts losing it's utility as a medium of exchange, a unit of account, and a store of value because it's power as a system of control is so intoxicating and so overpowering that it erases all other uses of it.And that's exactly what we see. Centralized money is no longer offering useful

Location: Zoom Date: Wednesday 27th May Project: Guns N' Bitcoin Role: Chief Range Officer Bitcoin's immune system has evolved from years of defeating threats, staving off bad actors and protecting the core principles of the network. Many Bitcoiners consider Bitcoin as gold 2.0, threatening the corrupt practices of central banking. As such, small blocks, the fee market and hodling are essential components of defeating fiat. With such staunch views from within the community, even just opening up these topics for debate can see a backlash from Bitcoiners. Why has spending Bitcoin become such a contentious issue for some? It was the Silk Road and Wikipedia, which proved the importance of censorship resistance, enabling people to circumvent oppressive government rules. Developers working on Bitcoin are held to the highest levels of scrutiny, and rightly so, but why aren't the ideas around Bitcoin usage equally scrutinised? In this interview, I talk to Ragnar Lifthrasir from Guns N' Bitcoin. We discuss the Bitcoiner narratives, why spending Bitcoin is as important as hodling, libertarianism, guns and the 2nd amendment

Living in gratitude is being aware and appreciative of what we have and the world around us. While the world is more connected than ever, it is also sicker than ever: We use our connectivity to lament about our sick economies, our sick policies, and our sick relationships. What if we connected over love, giving, and gratitude, instead? What if we saw our way over and around roadblocks to solutions and what if we saw what we all have to be grateful for and what we have in common, rather than what divides us, each day? Hospice nurse, author, and entrepreneur Alyze Sam joins Tatiana and Lauren on Proof of Love to share her journey from life-shattering injury, illness, and loss to a life lived full of love and gratitude. Her inspiring story of saving her own life by turning her daily suffering into daily gratitude and all that led to is one that everyone should hear. Alyze, Tatiana, and Lauren share their "coming to gratitude" processes and daily habits, how living with gratitude can help during the current COVID-19 crisis, along with Tatiana and Alyze's latest project, Proof of Gratitude, in hopes of helping others connect over what is precious in life. Alyze also shares how she got into blockchain and crypto while stuck in bed recovering from multiple major surgeries and her wonderful insight as to how to inspire more women to pursue interests and careers in STEM fields and her passion about being a mother and about providing education, security and tons of love for children. Tune in and share the love ' and don't forget to share your #ProofOfGratitude on social media! About the Guest: Alyze Sam is a refreshing blockchain strategist, a novel educator, and vehemently driven advocate.

Location: Zoom Date: Thursday 28th May Project: Abra Role: Founder & CEO This week, Goldman Sachs held an investment advisory call for its clients during which it slammed Bitcoin as an investment and refused to accept it as an asset class. Goldman's take on Bitcoin was in equal parts bearish and ignorant, with the investment bank listing five reasons for not classing Bitcoin as an asset or a suitable investment: Bitcoin does not generate cash flow like bonds. Bitcoin does not generate any earnings through exposure to global economic growth. Bitcoin does not provide consistent diversification benefits given its unstable correlations. Bitcoin does not dampen volatility given historical volatility of 76%. Goldman points to March 12 when bitcoin fell 37%. Bitcoin does not show evidence of hedging against inflation. Goldman raised numerous regularly debunked points as a negative, from scarcity to hard forks to illicit use cases, and compared Bitcoin to the Tulip mania of the 17th century. Godman's investor call is not Bitcoin's first time Wall Street has challenged Bitcoin. In 2017 Jamie Dimon, the CEO of JP Morgan called Bitcoin a fraud and Warren Buffet has called all cryptocurrencies worthless. So why do some on Wall Street refuse to accept Bitcoin? Is it down to ignorance or does Bitcoin threaten their business model? In this interview, I am joined by Bill Barhydt, the CEO and Founder of Abra. We discuss and debunk Goldman Sachs' arguments against Bitcoin as well as the reasons behind their lazy research.

Josh and Tatiana are spending this episode of The Tatiana Show focused on privacy and they welcome Isabela Bagueros, Executive Director of the Tor Project to explain why privacy on the internet is important. Isabela recounts how she first came to use the Tor browser and then began working for the Tor Project, eventually becoming its Executive Director. She also, very simply, likens the layers of encryption applied when connected to Tor to the layers of an onion' hence, the Onion Router. Previously, Tor users were able to use the browser to visit the web anonymously. The latest Tor project, the open-source OnionShare, now allows users to offer and exchange content with the same encrypted protection. Isabela also addresses the term "dark web," and explains that there is no such thing'at least, not as it exists in the imagination of people who are not familiar with how internet infrastructure works. What most people think of is the "dark web" is really just the "unindexed web." What Tor offers is not a doorway to some secret part of the internet, but privacy, security, and a way to circumvent censorship across the entire public internet and the network of unindexed sites and Onion servers. This is a must-hear episode for a concise explanation of how Tor works, why you need it, and how far it has come in providing security and privacy and where it goes from here. Remember: there is no dark web. There is only Tor. About the Guest: Isabela Bagueros is the Executive Director of the Tor Project since November 2018. She joined the Tor Project as Project Manager in 2015, after working as Product Manager for International and Growth at Twitter for four years. Isabela has been part of the free software community since the late 90s, and in 2007 she co-founded and worked as LatinAmerica Project Manager for North by South, a startup from San Francisco focused on free software projects. Isabela was also part of Brazil's Federal Government Free Software initiative, working in 2005 on the Ministry of Communications digital inclusion project and participating in 2006 on a project to migrate the IT of the Presidential Palace of Brazil to free software.

On today's episode of Let's Talk Bitcoin! you're invited to join Andreas M. Antonopoulos, Adam B. Levine, Stephanie Murpy and special guest Richard Myers for an in-depth look at the past, present and future of 'Mobile Mesh Networking' technology and the open source LOT49 protocol built on top of lightning. Just as cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin don't rely on static infrastructure and professional providers, mobile mesh networking allows the creation of inexpensive, high range, low bandwidth and power consumption ad-hoc networks that'll let your phone send text messages or even bitcoin lightning network micro-transactions, even in areas with no coverage. According to Richard, Bitcoin's Lightning is a what's needed to make mobile mesh networks catch on by bootstrapping on top of the payment routing infrastructure. "'the Lightning network currently sends payments from A to B to C and then all those intermediate nodes can connect a small fee if the payment is delivered at the end. All we're doing is saying 'Not only [can you send] a payment, but [you can send] a small message. In our case it'd be a SMS message. So you're sending an SMS message along with a Lightning payment from A to B to C to D, and when D receives that message they return proof that it was delivered and that's what flows back through the network. In the Lightning sense, that's your pre-image. It's computed from the message, that's how the nodes are able to collect payment even if they lose touch with the original person who sent it." But the way the Lightning network uses data natively isn't ideal for mobile mesh. The open sourceLot49 protocolis another layer on top of lightning that Richard says is necessary to make it work at scale while using mesh devices as an extremely low-bandwidth TOR-like privacy layer. "In many ways we're not making a new protocol, we're literally using lightning.Lot49is custom communication protocol that's optimized for mesh. For example, right now there's a 1300 byte onion that's used to route messages over the internet and that's very important because you lose a lot of privacy' you lose all your privacy' if you were to just send messages over the internet without onion routing. We're sending over more or less a physical TOR network since it's going from node to node, not through a central ISP who can associate who you're trying to pay. We're also doing it over a low bandwidth network, so if you were sending 1300 bytes it may not sound like much in the age of the internet but we're talking about devices that [have a maximum data transmission capacity of] about a kilobyte a minute so that's a significant amount of the bandwidth that you have [tied up just in the web's onion routing] So for example with LOT49, we take out the onion and we use the native routing at the mesh device [level] which is optimized for mesh communications. And there's a few other little changes we make like that in order to reduce the bandwidth by chunking up messages' the ultimate goal is to minimize the lightning protocol overhead so that there is more bandwidth available for data' For things like sending an SMS and as bandwidth increases there may be things like internet protocol'" Credits This episode of Let's Talk Bitcoin features Stephanie Murphy, Andreas M.

Location: Zoom Date: Friday 22nd May Role: Independent Trader Despite being the best performing asset over the past decade, Bitcoin is an incredibly volatile asset and risky to trade. Outperforming the market is hard, and very few people manage to beat the strategy of buying and holding. Unlike traditional markets, bitcoin markets are open 24/7/365, and traded on both regulated and unregulated exchanges. High leverage options and low liquidity altcoins make it easy for a newcomer to wipe out their trading accounts quickly. While few traders are profitable, a large number of the Bitcoin community find the temptation to increase their bitcoin stack hard to resist. I always recommend against trading, especially if you are new to Bitcoin, but this doesn't stop people. So, if you want to try trading, what are the basic things you need to understand? In this episode, I talk to Flood, an independent Bitcoin trader. We discuss the key things a newcomer to trading needs to know from which exchanges to use, trading strategies, leverage, finding your edge and the common mistakes.

Amiti is working full time as a Core developer, focusing on the peer to peer aspect of the protocol. Her latest contribution is a pull request that improves wallet privacy. I enjoyed our chat a lot, because Amiti has a clear and concise way to communicate which had even a calming effect on me. Maybe her daily meditation practice is the reason for that. We talk about How different forms of money form expectationsThe gift economyWhy she chose bitcoin and not another 'œcrypto' projectCensorship resistanceWhy privacy is importantWhat a PR isInfluencing the direction of Bitcoin developmentBitcoin Core releasesHer educational comicsHow Bitcoin developers are getting paidHer message to women in BitcoinDiversity in BitcoinMeditation Full transcript on the episode page

Location: Zoom Date: Monday 18th May Project: Gemini Role: Co-Founders The Social Network, directed by David Fincher, introduced Cameron and Tyler Winklevoss to the world. The film told the story of how Mark Zuckerberg stole their idea to create Facebook, and would later settle for $65 million. After settling the court case and retiring from their careers in rowing, where the twins represented the USA in the 2008 Beijing Olympics, they started a fund and discovered Bitcoin. In 2014 they created Gemini, now one of the largest regulated cryptocurrency exchanges. The film portrayed the twins as cliche sporting jocks, an image which has been hard to shake off. Cameron and Tyler are more at home building things and their success since Harvard is not luck. My picture of the twins, like most, was created from the Social Network and their appearances on mainstream news discussing finance, but I wanted to know more about them. This interview is, therefore, the interview I have wanted to hear from them. We discuss The Social Network, Facebook and Mark Zuckerberg, how they discovered Bitcoin, regulations and the role of Wall Street.

BlockSpaces co-founder Rosa Shores and CTO Chris Tyler join Josh and Tatiana to share the evolution of BlockSpaces from a community participating in local meetups in the Tampa area to a powerhouse of enterprise development in the blockchain space. Rosa's first exposure to cryptocurrency was through the lens of libertarian economic ideology, but her corporate background led her to consider how tokens could be used for making ecommerce payment more efficient and transparent track and tracing to highlight product sourcing for brands. BlockSpaces moved to solve some B2B enterprise issues with their development services. Josh and Tatiana ask, and Chris and Rosa answer, the questions: How does BlockSpaces define "enterprise" applications? Why blockchain and not just existing database technology? How do you insure the integrity of data at the original input? Which issues along supply chains can blockchain solve? Where do ideas such as Digital / Decentralized ID fit into enterprise solutions? Does cryptocurrency have a place in enterprise solutions? Which blockchain protocols does BlockSpaces work with? Rosa explains another project that inspired the formation of BlockSpaces: Clearvoter. Clearvoter is a civic engagement platform, proposed in 2014, born of the founders' desire to employ the blockchain and cryptocurrency in a way that would provide transparency to potential voters around local policy issues, while solving some of the issues (*cough* social media *cough*) that caused division and diffusion in politics that lead to tribalism and hyper-partisanship. If you thought you knew everything that blockchain could be used for, you definitely want to hear what Rosa, Chris, and the BlockSpaces team have in store for the enterprise world. About the Guests: Rosa Shores is co-founder of BlockSpaces, a blockchain-focused product development company located in Tampa, Florida. As a seven year veteran of the blockchain industry. She is also the co-founder of ClearVoter, an early stage digital democracy/civic engagement platform. As a former eCommerce digital analyst with Qurate Retail Group (HSN/QVC), she first heard of bitcoin and cryptocurrency in 2013 and is recognized in the blockchain community as a passionate speaker and advocate for blockchain technology. She is the co-organizer of several of the largest and longest running blockchain/cryptocurrency groups in the Tampa Bay region since 2014, and is the Vice President of the Florida Blockchain Business Association, a group dedicated to helping blockchain focused businesses thrive in the state through industry focused legislative efforts and education. The FBBA was instrumental in supporting the passing of Florida SB 1024 which established the Florida Blockchain Task Force within the Florida Department of Financial Services, and also helped develop what is now SB 1870 which proposes a fintech regulatory sandbox for Florida allowing innovative companies to build outside of regulatory restrictions with oversight. Chris Tyler is an experienced IT professional with over 25 years experience in the software industry. Over the past 15 years with IBM, he has been a trusted advisor to many software companies on the monetization of data through the use of analytics, data science, IoT and blockchain. Recently, Chris has taken on the role of Chief Technology Officer for BlockSpaces.

Levine, Jonathan Mohan and Stephanie Murpy for an in-depth discussion about the ups and downs, the good and the bad about being your own bank in the modern world of Bitcoin.The episode is sponsored byeToro.comandThe Internet of Money Vol. 3The powerful idea and meme at the core of Bitcoin self-sovereignty is incredibly empowering but has an unspoken element that requires persistent competence and at least for some makes it more trouble than it's worth.As the world reels from the response to COVID-19 and disorder seems the trend on the rise, we discuss how although Bitcoin makes it possible for anyone to be their own bank, who actuallywantsthe constant vigilance and anxiety that goes along with it? And what happens when things go wrong and there's no-one to blame but ourselves?"...There is tremendous luxury in having institutions that at least appear to be stable over some period of time where you don't need to worry about the details of how they work and what happens under failure conditions. That luxury is pretty concentrated in just a few places in the world and at some point you can't afford that luxury of apathy. - Andreas M.

Scott shares the joys and challenges of parenting, dating while parenting, and some of the conflicts that come along with juggling a romantic relationship and parenting. For ladies considering dating a dad, Scott advises that dads aren't always as available as single men without children and that being understanding and accommodating is an appealing quality. Lauren points out that a relationship with a single dad shines a spotlight on the importance of communication to keep everyone's expectations in the realm of reasonable. The trio discuss whether single parents look for other parents in similar situations when they are dating, the intricacies of navigating divorce and co-parenting, and parenting styles as they relate to getting into a serious relationship. Finally, Scott chats about dealing with COVID-19, dating apps, and his preferences for meeting people. You might be surprised to hear his thoughts and experiences. About the Guest: Scott brings more than 14 years of experience in driving revenue for high-tech start-up businesses and technology resellers. During this time, he has served in various senior management, consultant and business development roles for both successful start-ups and mature technology businesses. Additionally, Scott brings a deep level of expertise in the blockchain and enterprise data center sectors, having served as a long-term, trusted partner to executive IT decision-makers. Throughout his career, he has generated more than $40 million in revenue while creating and managing teams across new markets.

Location: Zoom Date: Friday 15th May Project: Blockstream Role: CEO & Chief Strategy Officer Bitcoin: decentralised, permissionless, censorship-resistant and unconfiscatable. Unique properties which make it a unique form of money For Bitcoin to keep growing, these features mustn't be compromised. However, scaling solutions for Bitcoin, may trade off some of these features for other benefits. With the vast majority of the community in agreement that block sizes must remain small to maximise decentralisation, Bitcoin is best scaled using layered solutions. The Liquid Network, like the Lightning Network, is a layer two solution that, by sacrificing some aspects of decentralisation and censorship resistance, can improve speed and scalability. Liquid is a project spearheaded by Blockstream and is aimed at traders, exchanges and market makers to offer faster and more confidential transactions than the Bitcoin basechain. It also adds the ability to build tokens on the network. In this interview, I talk to Adam Back and Samson Mow Blockstream's CEO & Chief Strategy Officer. We discuss The Liquid Network, the tradeoffs between Liquid and the basechain, how it differs from Lightning network and tokenised securities.
