    Welcome to episode 15 of *The Bitcoin Game*, I'm Rob Mitchell.

    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.

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

    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.
