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. Steven leveraged his extensive knowledge in this field to launch Rivetz, a company dedicated to bringing personal security to Bitcoin transactions, and more. The capabilities of this technology give me hope that there will soon be a migration past the current broken security paradigm. And perhaps Bitcoin’s need for ultimate security will be a catalyst to expand the use of this technology.
