    The Bitcoin Game #38: Rodolfo Novak of Coinkite & Opendime

    August 21st, 2016 by Rob

    Hello, welcome to episode 38 of The Bitcoin Game. I'm Rob Mitchell.

    It's always great interviewing a knowledgeable person who's not afraid to give an opinion, and Rodolfo Novak is that sort of guest. In this interview, we discuss Coinkite's early days, which started with a Blockchain explorer, custom Bitcoin payment terminals, a widely-used wallet hosting service, and a backend that utilizes hardware security modules of Coinkite's own design. And now, with Opendime, they've moved on to a fa...

    The Bitcoin Game #37: Back in the Saddle with Christopher Camp

    July 15th, 2016 by Rob

    Hello, welcome to episode 37 of The Bitcoin Game. I'm Rob Mitchell.

    Everyone has a unique story. When I started this podcast, I really wanted to talk to Bitcoiners who hadn’t been exposed in Bitcoin media. There are a couple of really interesting local Bitcoin traders I've tried to interview, but surprisingly, sometimes it's easier to get a Bitcoin core developer on the show, than many of the lesser-known people who also have Bitcoin-centric lives.

    The Bitcoin Game #36: The Ethereum Perspective with Arthur Falls

    The Bitcoin Game #36: Ethereum with Arthur Falls

    Hello, welcome to episode 36 of The Bitcoin Game. I'm Rob Mitchell.

    I have to admit, as cool as Ethereum has always sounded to me, I haven’t kept up on it. Then, earlier this month, the market cap of Ether surpassed one billion dollars, about a sixth of Bitcoin’s market cap. The price has come down a bit since then, but seeing the high valuation made me realize I’d b...

    The Bitcoin Game #34: Bitcoin Core Dev Peter Todd

    February 17th, 2016 by Rob

    Hello, welcome to episode 34 of The Bitcoin Game. I'm Rob Mitchell, and my guest is Bitcoin Core developer Peter Todd.

    Peter was really open in this interview, and we talked about everything from his relationship with Gavin Andresen, to mistakes he made in his early days working with Bitcoin Core, and a dozen topics in between. A lot of Peter’s focus was on explaining what he feels are the differences between Bitcoin Core and Bitcoin Classic, and why he believes Core is the path to follow...

    The Bitcoin Game #33: Hacker J. Maurice

    February 5th, 2016 by Rob

    Hello, welcome to episode 33 of The Bitcoin Game. I'm Rob Mitchell.

    J. Maurice is everything you’d expect in a crypto-anarchist hacker. When I had lunch with him before our interview, Maurice kept his phone powered off and explained he wouldn’t use a credit card, except maybe to pay for already-tracked air travel. After our meal, he used his Trezor to sign a Bitcoin payment on his laptop, via the cafe's W...

    The Bitcoin Game #32: Brock Pierce

    January 15th, 2016 by Rob

    Hello, welcome to episode 32 of The Bitcoin Game. I'm Rob Mitchell.

    Today's interview is with Brock Pierce, chairman of the board of The Bitcoin Foundation, and a highly-accomplished VC in digital currency. Brock got involved in digital token entrepreneurship at a very young age, with a focus on gaming, an activity he excelled at. As he reached his mid-twenties, Brock's companies were doing $100,000,000 in business. By the time Bitcoin was released, Brock had become a veteran in the busines...

    The Bitcoin Game #31: Bitcoin, Micropayments, Action! With Valerian Bennett

    December 19th, 2015 by Rob

    Hello, welcome to episode 31 of The Bitcoin Game. I'm Rob Mitchell.

    I used to run into Valerian Bennett frequently at Los Angeles Bitcoin Meetups in 2014. I thought he’d disappeared from the Bitcoin scene, only to realize how wrong I was. Valerian has taken his experience in mainstream television production, and combined it with his passion for Bitcoin, to create several online Bitcoin video services, with his partner, payment channels developer James Poole. I hope you enjoy our discussio...

    The Bitcoin Game #30: The Biggest Blockchain Company You've Never Heard Of

    November 19th, 2015 by Rob

    Hello, welcome to episode 30 of The Bitcoin Game. I'm Rob Mitchell.

    What’s the oldest blockchain company you can think of? What if I told you a Blockchain company in Estonia called Guardtime was founded before the Bitcoin white paper was released? And what if I told you they are now a highly profitable company, doing large amounts of business with government, the world’s largest defense contractor, and a multinational communication technology company?

    I only found out about Guardtime...

    The Bitcoin Game #29: Bitcoin Journalist Brian Cohen

    November 5th, 2015 by Rob

    Hello, welcome to episode 29 of The Bitcoin Game. I'm Rob Mitchell.

    I first became acquainted with Bitcoin journalist Brian Cohen in mid-2014, as we were both active on the then-new Let’s Talk Bitcoin platform. I saw he was doing some fairly serious Bitcoin journalism. Soon after I launched this podcast, I reached out to Brian for an interview. It took a year for us to finally connect, but I finally spoke to the man who digs up a lot of...

    The Bitcoin Game #28: Would You Trust a Bitcoin Trading Bot?

    October 22nd, 2015 by Rob

    Hello, welcome to episode 28 of The Bitcoin Game. I'm Rob Mitchell.

    When I scheduled an interview with CoinCube CEO Robert Allen, I felt pretty skeptical. My gut told me a cloud-based Bitcoin-trading-bot would be something like a cloud-mining Ponzi-scheme on steroids. I wondered, would this interview be my first exposé? Would my "gotcha" questions be too difficult for Robert to field? Listen to find out!

    *7/19/16 UPDATE: For the sake of being informative, the gains in my CoinCube-traded...

    The Bitcoin Game #27 - John Barrett of Bitcoins and Gravy

    October 9th, 2015 by Rob

    Hello, welcome to episode 27 of The Bitcoin Game, I'm Rob Mitchell.

    I’ve been a podcast listener for many years now, so when I got interested in Bitcoin, listening to Bitcoin podcasts was a natural. I think Adam B. Levine launched The Daily Bitcoin the same day I first searched for Bitcoin podcasts. And I've been hooked on Bitcoin podcasts ever since.

    Bitcoins and Gravy has always been a hugely influential show for me. In a sea of podcasts with poor audio quality and barely exist...

    The Bitcoin Game #26 - Jeff Garzik’s The Future of Bitcoin

    September 24th, 2015 by Rob

    Hello, welcome to episode 26 of The Bitcoin Game, I'm Rob Mitchell.

    Back some months ago, Los Angeles had its first Bitcoin conference called The State Of Digital Money. Jeff Garzik (Bitcoin Core Developer for BitPay and CEO of Dunvegan Space Systems) was the featured speaker, and he gave a presentation called The Future of Bitcoin. I originally believed the presentation needed the accompanying visual slides, but after giving the audio of Jeff's presentation a fresh listen, I realized...

    The Bitcoin Game #25 - Mining At Scale with Marco Streng

    September 10th, 2015 by Rob

    Hello, welcome to episode 25 of The Bitcoin Game, I'm Rob Mitchell.

    If I were to meet Marco Streng on the street, I’d never guess he hands-on controls perhaps the largest amount of hashing power in the world. Marco is the CEO and cofounder of Genesis mining, a company that mines for profit, and also offers cloud mining. I met Marco back at the State Of Digital Money conference in Los Angeles earlier this year, as he was one of the speakers.

    I've always been skeptical about cloud minin...

    The Bitcoin Game #24 - Exploring Purse with Andrew Lee

    August 27th, 2015 by Rob

    Hello, welcome to episode 24 of The Bitcoin Game, I'm Rob Mitchell.

    Earlier this month I got to speak with Andrew Lee from Purse, a company that allows people to use Bitcoin to buy stuff on Amazon, and at pretty large discounts. My own first thought about Purse was that it was some strange company trying to shoehorn its way between Bitcoiners and Amazon. But after talking to Andrew, I now see Purse as a company that is helping to spread the use and adoption of Bitcoin throughout the world. ...

    The Bitcoin Game #23 - Mainstream Investing with the Bitcoin Investment Trust

    August 14th, 2015 by Rob

    Hello, welcome to episode 23 of The Bitcoin Game, I'm Rob Mitchell.

    I decided to experiment with buying Bitcoin a new way; I bought shares of the Bitcoin Investment Trust. The trust is the first, and I believe the only current way a U.S. citizen can add an investment in Bitcoin to a recognized retirement account. You can buy shares of the Bitcoin Investment Trust with symbol GBTC using a standard brokerage account, just like buying a stock or ETF. You could argue that one doesn't actually o...

    The Bitcoin Game #22 - Blockchain Technology Panel from SODM15

    July 30th, 2015 by Rob

    Hello, welcome to episode 22 of The Bitcoin Game, I'm Rob Mitchell.

    In today’s podcast you’ll hear the Blockchain Tech panel from the State Of Digital Money conference, which took place earlier this year in Los Angeles. I thought it was a very fun panel that was filled with many insights. You might say the panel was stacked a bit on the side of blockchain tech over Bitcoin, and Bitcoin maximalists (amongst others) may not agree with some of the points made. But hopefully everyone can st...

Alt-Options earned 2nd place at the startup pitch competition at Inside Bitcoins in Chicago shortly after this interview took place, and the company is planning to go live with Bitcoin option t...

    Hello, welcome to episode 20 of The Bitcoin Game, I'm Rob Mitchell.

    On April 18th, 2015, Los Angeles Bitcoiners were treated to our city’s first Bitcoin conference, called The State Of Digital Money 2015 (or SODM15). I recorded a lot of great content at this conference, and in today’s episode, I bring you the first of these recordings.
