He’s the inventor of Hashcash, the proof of work system used by Bitcoin and after we were initially introduced by a mutual acquaintance Charles Hoskinson, I met him at the vegas conference surrounded by a large huddle of conference attendees listening to him speak in the hall.

I’m a pretty sharp guy, but I know my strengths and organized what I hoped would be a half hour interview between he and Andreas M. Antonopoulos the next morning before our Brunch meetup. We finished brunch and Andreas never showed up, today I’m pleased to share with you the reason why. What follows is a very deep, lengthy and many times highly technical conversation about Bitcoin. It will not be for everybody, but I encourage you to listen to it anyhow because it is an important conversation.
