    Let's Talk BItcoin! #390 Revisiting Lightning (Part 2)

    March 3rd, 2019 by adam

    Adam B. Levine: Do you think this [collaboratively signing with someone else] solution is becoming more prevalent? You're effectively using coin-join as a way to create composite transactions for a purpose that goes beyond privacy.

     

    Andreas Antonopolous: Yes absolutely. I believe in the long term we're going to see the vast majority of transactions migrate to Lightning channels. Therefore every transaction you do on-chain, you're using the opportunity to bootstrap a channel, fund a channel, increase the funding of a channel, rebalance a channel, whatever you’re doing. We're going to see a lot more complex transactions that involve multiple different steps...

    Let's Talk Bitcoin! #391Exploring California's Crypto-Legislation

    March 10th, 2019 by adam
    ##On Todays Episode of Let's Talk Bitcoin... Adam B. Levine explores [AB1489](https://leginfo.legislature.ca.gov/faces/billTextClient.xhtml?bill_id=201920200AB1489) or "The California Bitlicense" and [AB953](https://leginfo.legislature.ca.gov/faces/billNavClient.xhtml?bill_id=201920200AB953), or what we're calling "The California Stablecoin Cannabis Taxation Bill" through a series of short interviews on various sides of the issues. First, we speak to Colin Gallagher, a longtime community member in California who shares his concerns about the process and substance of both the bills we're discussing today. Next, Peter Van Valkenburgh joins us from Coincenter.org for his perspective on why the California Bitlicense is a de-regulating bill, why they help craft good legislation for those states who want it, and more. We close today's show with Alexandra Medina, Mayor of Emeryville, California, executive director of BlockAdvocacy.org and a relative newcomer to Bitcoin. Ally tells us what AB953 and the option to remit taxes in stablecoins could mean to the cash-rich but unbankable California Cannabis industry. Read More

    September 29th, 2019 by adam
    _...the panopticon works both ways. If you surveil people, they can surveil you back. Blockchains give you a really important thing, which is immutability. So, for example, the next set of leaks of Panama papers, what you do is you embed them in the blockchain so they cannot be erased from history. - **Andreas M. Antonopoulos, LTB #414**_ ###On Today's Episode of Let's Talk Bitcoin! Andreas M. Antonopoulos, Stephanie Murphy, Jonathan Mohan, and Adam B. Levine are back with part two of our recent live show recorded at BTC2019 in front of a studio audience. This time, we've got nearly an hour of audience Q&A. Enjoy the show! Read More
