Welcome to episode 11 of The Bitcoin Game, I'm Rob Mitchell.

Welcome to episode 10 of The Bitcoin Game, I'm Rob Mitchell.
I wanted to really have fun and celebrate this 10th episode. I never knew if I'd be able to get ten episodes out, so this is quite an achievement for me. With that in mind, I decided to focus on something the entire cryptocurrency community loves to talk about… Taxes!

Gray is also involved at mixing entertainment and comedy with tech and science. He shares two...Read More

Danno Ferrin's current day job is working on Java for the Oracle Corporation. But for fun, Danno uses his programming skills to create visualization software for the BItcoin blockchain. In the wake of the large Bitstamp theft, Danno has been able to analyze some of the Bitcoin movements, using his software.
