    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 fi... Read More

    The Bitcoin Game #58: Jennifer Zhu Scott

    September 12th, 2018 by Rob
    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... Read More

    The Bitcoin Game #57: BCH Lead Dev Amaury Séchet

    August 2nd, 2018 by Rob
    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 Séchet, lead developer of Bitcoin Cash (EDIT: note it's been pointed out that Amaury is the lead dev of Bitcoin ABC, the main client used for BCH, but he isn't technically the lead dev for BCH - apologies for the inaccurate wording). I like that many of Amaury's opinions seem fairly independent, rather than sticking to a party l... Read More

    The Bitcoin Game #56: Paper Wallet Inventor Peter Kroll

    July 4th, 2018 by Rob
    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, includ...

    May 15th, 2018 by Rob
    Welcome to episode 54 of *The Bitcoin Game*, I'm Rob Mitchell. Back in 2015, I had been waiting and waiting for a Bitcoin conference to be held here in Los Angeles. I finally gave up and booked a trip to the 2015 Texas Bitcoin Conference. Of course, shortly after making arrangements to go to Austin, LA’s first Bitcoin conference, The State of Digital Money, was announced. 2018 marks the third year I've participated in SODM, this time moderating a diverse panel of guests speaking on the broad ...

This episode I speak with Mike In Space, longtime creator of Bitcoin memes, and more recently, the host of the comedy series, *Bitcoin Car Talk*.

    Hello, welcome to episode 50 of *The Bitcoin Game*, I'm Rob Mitchell. This episode also marks three years since I started this podcast. Back in 2013, when I was first getting into Bitcoin, Jeremy Allaire's interest in the space was a big validation of Bitcoin's importance as a disruptive technology.

    Hello, welcome to episode 47 of *The Bitcoin Game*, I'm Rob Mitchell. We recently had the State Of Digital Money, the first big Bitcoin conference in Los Angeles since 2015. Actually, I'm unsure if I should call it a Bitcoin conference, since the majority of the presentations were not directly related to Bitcoin. Luckily for me, I got to moderate a panel on scaling Bitcoin with notable Bitcoiners: Core developer Eric Lombrozo, longtime Bitcoin developer Ryan X. Charles, vocal trader and personal... Read More

    July 8th, 2017 by Rob

    The Bitcoin Game #41: Charlie Shrem

    January 14th, 2017 by Rob
    Hello, welcome to episode 41 of *The Bitcoin Game.* I'm Rob Mitchell, and my guest today is Charlie Shrem. When I got into Bitcoin, the two ways I was most familiar with to buy Bitcoin were to wire money to Mt. Gox in Japan, or go to the local 7-Eleven to send cash to BitInstant. It's not hard to see why BitInstant became one of the biggest Bitcoin companies in the U.S., until it stopped doing business in 2013. ![The Bitcoin Game #41: Charlie Shrem](https://c1.staticflickr.com/1/493/314509...
