Tim had reached out to OneCoin rep Ken Labine who indicated he would participate in this interview. We also sent invites as well. Needless to say he did not participate. So the information here is one sided. I'm sur... Read More

    The Choice Eaters

    June 23rd, 2016 by fergish
    BEWARE THE CHOICE EATERS! Politicians and other shysters take up and use the Choice that others have abandoned, and they encourage others to abandon their own Choice so that it’s easier for the Choice Eaters to consume. They are like carrion fowl: they consume the corpses of abandoned Choice. Some few of them know well what they’re doing. The rest are just chumps, following “conventional wisdom.” But, you know, even the chumps will eat your Choice if you abandon it. **Wake up my fe... Read More

    EB136 - Arthur Breitman: Tezos - A Self-Amending Crypto-Ledger

    June 20th, 2016 by epicenterbitcoin
    The lack of an explicit governance mechanism has created deep problems for Bitcoin. Ethereum, with the DAO-related soft/hard-fork discussions, may face similar challenges ahead. Yet, already in 2014 Arthur Breitman quietly started working on cryptocurrency network Tezos that has an explicit mechanism to let coinholders vote on protocol upgrades. Our discussion with Breitman centered around how explicit governance could lead to a more secure and evolutionary protocol. We also discussed Te... Read More
