In this podcast you'll hear interviews with principal members of four Bitcoin businesses that were hiring at the job fair (there were many more than just these four!). I started with a quick chat with ExpressCoin CEO Will ...Read More

Hello, welcome to The Bitcoin Game #6. I'm your host, Rob Mitchell.
I spoke to Adam B. Levine a few weeks ago. We talked about his original Bitcoin podcast, The Daily Bitcoin, and why it morphed into Let's Talk Bitcoin, with Andreas Antonopoulos and Stephanie Murphy. In this interview, I found out how insanely early Adam wakes up each day, his takes on crypto crowd-funding platforms, as well as some of his grave concerns about potential U.S. governmental actions against crypto-projects ...Read More

Welcome to episode #7 of The Bitcoin Game, I'm Rob Mitchell.
The white hat hacker known as Johoe ("Yo-ho") rescued over 870 Bitcoins recently from addresses compromised by a temporary bug in Blockchain.info's web wallet.

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. Danno might be one of the most knowledgeable people about the loss, other than insiders like Bitstamp employees and the actual hacker (I ha...Read More

In December of 2014, I went to visit Gray Bright, an Australian currently living in Los Angeles. He's been a maker all his life, and he graduated with an advanced degree in Robotic and Mechatronic Engineering. Gray has notable experience in product development, but what he enjoys making most are hardware / software creations that simply make him smile. Gray is also involved at mixing entertainment and comedy with tech and science. He shares two...Read More

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!
While cryptocurrency taxes may not be a favorite topic, I actually had a lot more fun than I expected, speaking to Jake Benson, CEO and founder of LibraTax. Thi...Read More

It's great to live in a big city such as Los Angeles because of the opportunity to network with people doing amazing things in the Bitcoin space. While Paul Puey founded Airbitz from San Diego, he still has managed to attend enough Los Angeles Bitcoin meetups that he seems like a local. In January of this year, Airbitz was selected by Plug and Play to take part in their Startup Camp Accelerator in Silicon Valley. Paul still had no...Read More

Welcome to episode 13 of The Bitcoin Game, I'm Rob Mitchell.
For today’s episode I spoke with Steven Sprague, an expert in an under-utilized technology called the Trusted Execution Environment that exists in many of our devices.

Welcome to episode 15 of The Bitcoin Game, I'm Rob Mitchell.
While I usually try to be extremely professional on my podcast, this episode from the Friday night Kickoff Party for the Texas Bitcoin Conference may expose a slightly different side of me. I went straight from Austin–Bergstrom International Airport to Maria's Taco Express, where the party was held. I arrived to the sound of live music and a large patio area completely packed with Bitcoiners.
I made my way through the crowd a...Read More

Welcome to episode 16 of The Bitcoin Game, I'm Rob Mitchell.
I was excited to talk to Bruce Fenton at the recent Texas Bitcoin Conference. It was a fun conversation, and I think it gives a good sense of Bruce as a person. He answered my questions about the exclusive Satoshi Roundtable Bitcoin retreat he organized, and filled me in about his impressive background in financial management. Our interview concluded with passionate exposition by Bruce. Note that we spoke before Bruce was elected ...Read More
