The Bitcoin Game #26 - Jeff Garzik’s The Future of Bitcoin

Published on 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 the audio is really good on its own. I even found it refreshing to hear a core developer speak on a variety of Bitcoin topics, without having to weigh in on the current contentious block size debate. So relax and enjoy this presentation by Jeff Garzik.
