    Distributed Dialogues EP #4 New Markets

    August 24th, 2018 by DSholla
    **"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** Read More

    Distributed Dialogues EP #2 - Checks And Balances

    August 7th, 2018 by DSholla
    "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 Read More

    August 6th, 2018 by DSholla

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.

    What Bitcoin Did #27 An Interview with Lyn Ulbricht

    July 27th, 2018 by DSholla
    **“That’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.

    July 23rd, 2018 by DSholla
    **“I 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 ... Read More

    What Bitcoin Did #23 An Interview with Michael Sonnenshein

    July 3rd, 2018 by DSholla

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.
