Hello, welcome to episode 22 of The Bitcoin Game, I'm Rob Mitchell.
In today’s podcast you’ll hear the Blockchain Tech panel from the State Of Digital Money conference, which took place earlier this year in Los Angeles. I thought it was a very fun panel that was filled with many insights. You might say the panel was stacked a bit on the side of blockchain tech over Bitcoin, and Bitcoin maximalists (amongst others) may not agree with some of the points made. But hopefully everyone can still appreciate hearing ideas and discussion from very bright people in the field.
Some interesting tidbits: It’s Jeff Garzik you’ll hear yell “not true” from his seat in the audience, and Connie Gallippi also speaks from the crowd. I was surprised to learn the source of inspiration for Medici (the blockchain-based stock exchange being pioneered by Overstock CEO Patrick Byrne).
On the panel, you’ll hear (in order of appearance):
Senior Manager in the Deloitte Transactions and Business Analytics LLP
Co-Founder and CTO for Tether
VP of Payments at BitReserve
Director of Communications at Overstock.com
Associate Venture Capital Investor at March Capital Partners

Bitcoin Keychains by Bkeychain
You’ve seen these keychains on dozens and dozens of websites, it’s about time you had one of your own! These substantial metal keychains make great conversation starters, and they also make great gifts to or from Bitcoiners. You can find a list of online retailers at Bkeychain.com, and several support Bitcoin so much, they don’t even accept fiat currency. So what are you waiting for?
Below is a YouTube video of the panel.
