Glad you found the episodes successful :) I agree that could make for a good episode. @adam if you want to feel free to go ahead, if it interests you. Otherwise, we'd be happy to revisit the topic with Rusty in late September / October.Posted on August 15, 2015 at 4:05 AM
thanks for all these insightful answers. Super interesting. You seem to know a lot about this topic. We'll definitely try to address some of these points when we talk to Paul.
Feel free to add me on Skype if you want to talk further or email me: fabian.brian.crain or [email protected]
We're recording Sunday morning PDT time so I guess we won't be able to talk before we record.Posted on April 19, 2015 at 7:45 AM
I'm not sure I understand the question. Do you mean how do we deal with the recycling of devices? What does that have to do with IoT? That would seem to be a general problem related to the increasing number of devices.Posted on April 17, 2015 at 3:03 AM
Brian here from Epicenter Bitcoin. We'll be recording an episode with Paul Brody who was in charge of Internet of Things at IBM until recently and launched this project there to use the blockchain to power IoT infrastructure.
It's a super fascinating topic, though we're much less familiar with it than with others. Any IoT enthusiast here with opinions on this? What should we cover? What are your views?

A topic which is often discussed is the limited use of Ethereum applications without stable cryptocurrencies. Prediction markets are a prime example of this. When one makes a prediction using Ether, he or she is in fact entering into to speculations: one being the outcome of the actual prediction, the other being the price of Ether when the prediction resolves. Projects like Maker DAO try to solve the problem by developing complex systems to ensure that a blockchain token keeps its value in ...Read More

Before 2013 few people paid attention to Bitcoin and blockchain, yet even back in the 1990s a vibrant group of prioneers pursued the vision of financial cryptography and digital cash.

Grigg joined us for a discussion of the history of the digital cash, Bitcoin and his work on Ricardian Contracts, which foreshadowed today's smart contracts.

We're joined by Ryan X. Charles, Bitcoin Developer and Founder of Yours. Yours would like to address the monetization problem by allowing content produce...Read More

One of the sectors which is ripe for disruption is the real estate industry. In the US for instance, a handful of historic and very powerful players operate what is known as MLS, or Multiple Listing Services, and hold unofficial monopolies on residential and commercial real estate listings. Brokers, who depend on these listing services to sell properties, agree that their incumbent positions have created a situation where fees have continued to rise, while little to no added value has been a...Read More
