    July 18th, 2019 by Rob
    Welcome to episode 68 of *The Bitcoin Game*, I'm Rob Mitchell. I introduced myself to Paul Sztorc at [Bitcoin 2019](https://www.bitcoin2019conference.com) and asked him if he'd be up for an interview. I was thrilled that he gave me an unqualified "yes." This ended up being, by far, my longest interview of the conference, and I appreciate that Paul was willing to hang out with me for a big chunk of the second day of the event.

    The Bitcoin Game #64: Farbood Nivi of Coinmine

    June 14th, 2019 by Rob
    The other day, an interesting post crossed my path on "Crypto Twitter." This guy was super excited about receiving his Coinmine, a device I was not familiar with. It appeared to be a plug-and-play multi-purpose GPU miner and Bitcoin/Lightning Network full node. And it looked pretty. I was intrigued. I started investigating the product, and quickly discovered that Coinminer's headquarters is right here in Los Angeles. And that's how my interview with Farbood Nivi, CEO and co-founder of Coinmine, ... 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

    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...
