    April 15th, 2015 by Rob
    Welcome to episode 15 of *The Bitcoin Game*, I'm Rob Mitchell. While I usually try to be extremely professional on my podcast, this episode from the Friday night Kickoff Party for the Texas Bitcoin Conference may expose a slightly different side of me. I went straight from Austin–Bergstrom International Airport to Maria's Taco Express, where the party was held. I arrived to the sound of live music and a large patio area completely packed with Bitcoiners. I made my way through the crowd a... Read More

    EB74 – Robby Dermody: Counterparty - Assets, Dividends And Decentralized Exchange

    April 13th, 2015 by epicenterbitcoin
    In the crowded race to become the leading ‘Bitcoin 2.0’ platform, Counterparty has stood out by avoiding fancy crowdsales and instead building a platform that works. The protocol, which sits on top of Bitcoin and thus benefits from the security of its mining power, allows issuing assets, paying dividends or trading in a decentralized way. Over the past year, it has been the platform of choice for many crowdsales and is also what powers LTBCoin. Co-Founder Robby Dermody joined us for a... Read More

    Bitcoins and Gravy #63: Airbitz the Wallet of the Future!

    April 12th, 2015 by johnbarrett
    On today's show I travel to beautiful San Diego, California for a conversation with my good friend Paul Puey the founder and CEO of Airbitz.co. The Airbitz wallet is a leap forward for Bitcoin wallets where data is strongly encrypted on each user’s device using each individual user’s login and password. The Airbitz wallet does not host user funds on their servers so your chance of being goxed is nil, zero, nunca, nada. With meta data options the Airbitz bitcoin wallet is one of the most use...

    April 6th, 2015 by epicenterbitcoin
    The cryptocurrency ecosystem is increasingly divided into different camps. There are those betting and working on the eventual mainstream success of Bitcoin. And there are those who take elements of Bitcoin’s technology and repurpose them to improve existing systems. Hyperledger is one of the projects firmly in the latter camp. They are envisioning a world where innumerable interoperable ledgers are operated by different parties. Hyperledger is their tool for the creation and managemen... Read More
