    July 18th, 2016 by epicenterbitcoin
    Exchanges are often criticized as a central point of failure of the cryptocurrency space. This isn't without justification as, in recent years, we have seen a number of exchanges get hacked, robbed, or embezzled by their founders, which is far from insignificant. One proposed alternative are decentralized exchanges that would allow people make peer-to-peer trades using sophisticated smart contracts. However, there remains the fundamental challenge of interfacing with the legacy banking syst... Read More

    The Crypto Show with Filip Martinka of Plutus.it , Chris David on APD searching AC office and we get into the 28 pages

    July 17th, 2016 by TheCryptoShow
    We start off with a pre recorded interview with Filip Martinka COO of Plutus.it an NFC payment system that allows you to spend Bitcoin anywhere an NFC payment is accepted. Plutus will have a reward coin called Plutons that will be tradable on an exchange. This should be great step in warming up merchants to the idea of accepting Bitcoin directly. Then we shift into the live show. It seems a week doesn't go by that Arcade City isn't making the news in Austin. This week is no different. Friday A... Read More

    July 16th, 2016 by adam

There are a couple of really interesting local Bitcoin traders I've tried to interview, but surprisingly, sometimes it's easier to get a Bitcoin core developer on the show, than many of the lesser-known people who also have Bitcoin-centric lives. ![The Bitcoin Game #37: Back in the S...
