“Mathematics is the art of finding patterns in logical structures and finding connections between seemingly apparently different structures.” — Andrew Poelstra

Interview location: Boston

Interview date: Saturday 9th March, 2019

Company: Blockstream

Role: Director of Research

I usually write a few paragraphs about each show, but with this interview, I struggled, primarily because Andrew’s work for Blockstream is so technically advanced that I didn’t know how to describe it, this might be why we had so much fun in this interview.

Before recording I watched Andrew’s presentation at the MIT Blockchain Expo where I understood nothing. Still, in this interview, we talk about math, signature technology, Bitcoin fungibility and his role researching Bitcoin.
