    EB100 - Juan Benet: Decentralizing the Web With the Inter-Planetary File System (IPFS)

    October 12th, 2015 by epicenterbitcoin
    We've made it to episode 100! Our guest for our celebratory episode is Juan Benet, inventor of the Inter-Planetary File System and founder of Protocol Labs. IPFS is a distributed file system that seeks to connect all computing devices with the same system of files.

    The Bitcoin Game #27 - John Barrett of Bitcoins and Gravy

    October 9th, 2015 by Rob
    Hello, welcome to episode 27 of *The Bitcoin Game*, I'm Rob Mitchell. I’ve been a podcast listener for many years now, so when I got interested in Bitcoin, listening to Bitcoin podcasts was a natural. I think Adam B. Levine launched *The Daily Bitcoin* the same day I first searched for Bitcoin podcasts. And I've been hooked on Bitcoin podcasts ever since. *Bitcoins and Gravy* has always been a hugely influential show for me. In a sea of podcasts with poor audio quality and barely exist... Read More

    SAFE Crossroads Podcast #19 SAFE School, Class Two, Going Deeper

    October 7th, 2015 by fergish
    ####In this Episode#### Class Two of the SAFE Network School takes us deeper. We probe down and start to pull apart the great intricacy of the SAFE Network by closely examining the key elements that make it work. But not too fast or overwhelmingly. You'll be surprised how understandable it is when guided by a Simpleton who has already done most of the brain-warping exploration, so that you don't have to warp YOUR head so much. Come along as we start to peel apart the "secrets" of how the ... Read More

    The Rise of the Internet of Value (IoV)

    October 7th, 2015 by PFarah
    ###How Blockchains Are About to Disrupt Industries, Governments, and People’s Lives Most people are familiar with the trajectory of digital evolution to date, from Web 1.0 (a one-way content distribution net) to Web 2.0 (an interactive social net) and possibly Web 3.0 (where smart applications monitor data and make decisions as human’s agents, and in doing so interact with both humans, other apps, or IoT-enabled machines). What might be less well-understood is the disruptive power of a new wave of digital capabilities enabled by cryptocurrencies (e.g., Bitcoin) and the underlying distributed ledger technology enabling the P2P exchange of digital value (e.g., the blockchain).

    EB99 - Manuel Aráoz And Esteban Ordano: Streamium, Pay-Per-Second Video Streaming For Indie Producers

    October 5th, 2015 by epicenterbitcoin
    One of the key innovations of Bitcoin is the ability to easily implement payment channels. A number of use cases have been discussed or demonstrated, among which is the idea of pay-per-use. This is particularly useful when charging for things like WiFi or streaming video by the second. With this in mind, one could imagine a line of communication between two peers, where data flows in one direction and payments flow in the other. This is the idea behind Streamium, a free and open-source se... Read More

    SAFE Crossroads #18 SAFE Network School, Class One

    September 30th, 2015 by fergish
    ####In this Episode#### We're happy to announce the opening of the Simpleton's School of the SAFE Network. Since the SAFE Network is being built on a very different combination of fundamentals than has ever been used before and because it is so intricate, it's not possible to just wade in and get a full picture of it without some work. This is especially true because the network is still in development and so can't be used and learned by experience, either. Therefore, the effort of this ... Read More
