On a very special episode of The Tatiana Show, Tatiana brings you a 3 part interview series from her recent trip to Birmingham, England for the 2019 BitBrum Conference.
Josh returns to the show as he and Tatiana speak with Marcos Rodriguez from Blue Wallet. Blue Wallet is a free and open source project ran and bootstrapped by volunteers and Bitcoin users. Forged from the ashes of the 2017 bull run when wallets were not prepared to handle the high fees, Blue Wallet was created to focus on Bitcoin and its users providing an alternative to the corporate focused wallets. Marcos discusses where he sees the company heading in the future and the challenges and opportunities of monetizing a wallet.
Next up, Tatiana sits down with Tom and Will from www.myhardwarewallet.co.uk. They are the biggest resellers of the best hardware wallets in the U.K. The duo give some insight into what attracted them to Bitcoin and the trends they have noticed in the wallet market.
The final interview comes from Holland crypto artists Eppo and Anita Leemburg. The couple have worked in many artforms including epoxy, acrylic jewelry, painting, and woodworking. Discovering Bitcoin led to them creating crypto art and offering pieces for sale at Bitbrum. Eppo and Anita discuss the creative community in Holland and their attitude towards Bitcoin as well as the future they see for cryptocurrency.
About the Guests:
Marcos Rodriguez hails from Puerto Rico, and currently based out of Atlanta. He started working at BlueWallet after seeing all the wallets in the space drifting towards ICOs and altcoins. The lack of a dedicated bitcoin option was pretty disappointing. After a quick online search he stumbled upon BlueWallet. After sending them an email, contributing some code, he officially joined the team.
Bluewallet is a free and open source project ran and bootstrapped by volunteers, and Bitcoin users. It was forged in the ashes of the 2017 bull run, where wallets where not prepared to handle the high fees scenario, giving benefit to the miners instead of the users. At the same time most wallets were doing ICOs and promoting anti-bitcoin forks.
Bluewallet was then created to focus on bitcoin and its users. Providing an alternative to the corporate focused wallets we see today.
Tom and Will are the proprietors of https://myhardwarewallet.co.uk/. They are UK-based hardware wallet specialists here to ensure no crypto-enthusiasts in the UK go without the best cryptocurrency hardware wallet security solutions available.
Eppo and Anita Leemburg are crypto artists from Holland. They pursued many avenues in the art world including jewelry, painting, and woodworking before discovering Bitcoin. Now they have added crypto art to their portfolio of work and their art can be seen on their websites as well as conferences like BitBrum.
