    The Bitcoin Game #33: Hacker J. Maurice

    February 5th, 2016 by Rob
    Hello, welcome to episode 33 of *The Bitcoin Game.* I'm Rob Mitchell. J. Maurice is everything you’d expect in a [crypto-anarchist](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Crypto-anarchism) hacker. When I had lunch with him before our interview, Maurice kept his phone powered off and explained he wouldn’t use a credit card, except maybe to pay for already-tracked air travel. After our meal, he used his [Trezor](https://www.bitcointrezor.com) to sign a Bitcoin payment on his laptop, via the cafe's W... Read More

    February 5th, 2016 by Legendface66
    Juan Bennet is the founder and CEO of Protocol Labs. The chief project under development over there is IPFS or the Interplanetary Storage Network. I keep hearing IPFS mentioned in the same sentence as Ethereum so I thought I’d ask Juan what the deal was. [Note: This episode does not contain a magic word.] Read More

    EB116 - Eli Ben-Sasson: Zero Knowledge Proofs

    February 1st, 2016 by epicenterbitcoin
    Zero Knowledge Proofs are methods of providing cryptographic proofs to another party while keeping some information secret. The simple concept of ZKP offer tantalizing possibilities: Banks could prove solvency without revealing depositors. Governments could prove the fairness of an election without compromising privacy. Computer science professor Eli Ben-Sasson joined us to discuss where blockchains and cryptocurrencies intersect with Zero Knowledge Proofs and related technologies such as... Read More

    'The State of Bitcoin from a Stateless Point of View,' by Jamie Redman

    January 29th, 2016 by JamieCrypto
    A couple days ago, I watched [a video of Amir Taaki](https://youtu.be/A0tCaOI0UYM) rise to the [top of the Bitcoin subreddit](https://www.reddit.com/r/Bitcoin/comments/433rmx/great_listen_great_attitude_amir_saw_mike_herns/). Many people said they missed the kind of spirit that Taaki brought to the table, along with others like him. Whether we like to admit it or not, we think Bitcoin is going through an identity crisis.

    Tokens and Open Source Hardware Manufacturing, Distribution and Sales

    January 26th, 2016 by adam
    Open Source Hardware is a popular and growing movement. An organization (sometimes charity, usually a non-profit) develops hardware designs and specifications and publishes them to the open source without the desire or potentially the ability to produce the physical products exclusively themselves. The Raspberry Pi project is a perfect example of this with two official stocking manufacturers who share back some of their revenue in compensation for their official status. This money supports further development. By adding three types of tokens to the ecosystem, what is a game for only the biggest of players can become a vibrant environment of efficient, decentralized and distributed reselling. Now distribution can start to take place. Read More

    January 25th, 2016 by epicenterbitcoin
    The idea that in the future tokens will play a crucial role in networks and organizations to incentivize decentralized collaboration and reward contribution is not new. It's the original decentralized autonomous organization idea that has informed many projects that have been on the podcast (Swarm, Ethereum, Factom, Storj, etc). For Matan, the vision originally led to found decentralized ride-sharing application LaZooz. One year ago, he left LaZooz to found Backfeed, which is building the to... Read More
