    The Bitcoin Game #49: Digging Deeper (Part Two) - Eric Lombrozo

    August 25th, 2017 by Rob

    Hello, welcome to episode 49 of The Bitcoin Game, I'm Rob Mitchell.

    After moderating a Bitcoin scaling panel at the State Of Digital Money in Los Angeles, I followed up by arranging back-to-back interviews with Ryan X. Charles and Eric Lombrozo. I wanted to dig a bit deeper into some issues around scaling and Bitcoin forks. Last episode was my interview with Ryan, and now the yin to Ryan’s yang, Eric Lombrozo.

    The Bitcoin Game #48: Digging Deeper (Part One) - Ryan X. Charles

    August 22nd, 2017 by Rob

    Hello, welcome to episode 48 of The Bitcoin Game, I'm Rob Mitchell.

    In episode 47 you heard the Bitcoin Scaling panel I moderated at the State Of Digital Money in Los Angeles. While I loved being part of that panel, I really didn’t get to ask many questions. The time allotted to that panel went by so quickly that I really wanted more! So, I was able to arrange interviews with Ryan X. Charles and Eric Lombrozo to dig a bit deeper into some issues around scaling and Bitcoin forks. In this e...

    The Bitcoin Game #47: Scaling Bitcoin with Paul Puey, Tone Vays, Ryan X. Charles, and Eric Lombrozo

    August 3rd, 2017 by Rob

    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...

    July 8th, 2017 by Rob

    Hello, welcome to episode 46 of The Bitcoin Game, I'm Rob Mitchell. In these times of uncertainty and division, Bitcoin could use some fence menders. Especially if they have technical chops and experience in the space. Jameson Lopp is just that kind of person. This episode contains his entire talk from The Future Of Bitcoin, the recent Bitcoin conference held in Arnhem, The Netherlands. The conference audio includes an extended intro from me as the MC of this event, and you'll hear just a bit ...

    The Bitcoin Game #45: Pamela Morgan, Crypto Estate Planning & Key Management

    June 5th, 2017 by Rob

    Hello, welcome to episode 45 of The Bitcoin Game, I'm Rob Mitchell. Sometimes it’s pretty cool being a Bitcoin podcaster. For instance, I was really curious about estate planning in terms of cryptocurrency and key management. So I reached out to expert Pamela Morgan, and she agreed to come on the show. Pamela has a law practice called Empowered Law, and she’s the CEO of Third Key Solutions. If you've pondered about best practices in key management and estate planning, please give this a li...

    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 #40: 2016 Year End Special!

    December 30th, 2016 by Rob

    My name is Rob Mitchell, and it's hard to believe this is my 40th episode of The Bitcoin Game. I was a fan of Let's Talk Bitcoin from day one, since it launched right after I got into Bitcoin. I reached out to Adam B. Levine early on, and worked with the LTB Network in various capacities. During that time, I recorded a number of interviews that weren't quite publishable, for one reason or another. But after attending a Bitcoin Job Fair, I eventually collected enough solid content to release ...

    The Bitcoin Game #39: Roger Ver

    September 5th, 2016 by Rob

    Hello, welcome to episode 39 of The Bitcoin Game. I'm Rob Mitchell.

    Odds are, if you are into Bitcoin, then you know Roger Ver, a.k.a. Bitcoin Jesus. And you possibly are aware that Roger is a huge proponent of increasing Bitcoin's maximum block size as soon as possible. But he's not just talking about it, he's taking action, as you'll hear.

    Roger is certainly a doer, and besides all th...

    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: 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...

    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...

    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...

    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...
