    The Bitcoin Game #68: Paul Sztorc

    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. I really feel like I got to know Paul in this longest episode I've re... Read More

    The Bitcoin Game #66: Jeremy Rubin

    July 2nd, 2019 by Rob
    Welcome to episode 66 of *The Bitcoin Game*, I'm Rob Mitchell. My second interview at the recent Bitcoin 2019 conference in San Francisco was with Jeremy Rubin, a fascinating guy who has contributed a ton to Bitcoin. We review Jeremy's background, discuss his current project (a BIP intended to aid with scaling pressures), and we revisit his controversial idea of a Bitcoin reorg in the wake of the recent Binance hack. And a lot more! Jeremy provides some pretty compelling content; I bet you'll en... Read More

In less than two years in the space, Leigh Cuen has become a mainstay in cryptocurrency journalism, as well as a highly elite user of GIFs on Crypto-Twitter.

    The Bitcoin Game #69: Doug Scribner's Smart ATM

    August 5th, 2019 by Rob
    Welcome to episode 69 of *The Bitcoin Game*, I'm Rob Mitchell. I attended [Bitcoin 2019](https://www.bitcoin2019conference.com) in June and recorded a bunch of great interviews. But only one interview was with someone I kind of knew, and that was Doug Scribner. He's been in the scene a long time, and recalls buying Bitcoin at Porcfest from Charlie Shrem, Erik Voorhees, and Roger Ver. His first major project, WatchMyBit, was a *bit* ahead of its time (pun unintended). Now he's focused on Vault L... Read More

    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. ... Read More

    The Bitcoin Game #46: Jameson Lopp - The Benefits of Coopetition in Adversarial Environments

    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 ... Read More

    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... Read More

    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 #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... Read More

    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... Read More

    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... Read More

    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... Read More

    The Bitcoin Game #56: Paper Wallet Inventor Peter Kroll

    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...

    The Bitcoin Game #29: Bitcoin Journalist Brian Cohen

    Hello, welcome to episode 29 of *The Bitcoin Game.* I'm Rob Mitchell. I first became acquainted with Bitcoin journalist [Brian Cohen](https://letstalkbitcoin.com/profile/user/bcohen) 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... Read More

    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... 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
