Welcome to episode 73 of The Bitcoin Game, sponsored by eToro. When I started paying attention to Bitcoin Twitter in 2013, I noticed a guy named Tim Pastoor, who seemed pretty well-respected by the Bitcoin Twitter community. He and I eventually became good friends on Twitter, so much so that we hung out for a long afternoon when I visited Amsterdam a few years ago. Tim has been focused on peer-to-peer identity and reputation systems for the past five years, supporting Martti Malmi's work in t...Read More

Welcome to episode 72 of The Bitcoin Game, I'm Rob Mitchell. This episode came about in an unexpected way. I had the opportunity to speak with Guy Hirsch (USA Managing Director for eToro) at the CIS conference in Los Angeles. My plan was to grab some sound bites from Guy to use in podcast episodes as part of eToro's sponsorship. But I'm such a curious person that I couldn't help but ask a bunch of genuine questions I had about the platform. Turned out, the brief interview was interesting and i...Read More

Welcome to episode 71 of The Bitcoin Game, I'm Rob Mitchell.
I met Brian Lockhart while having lunch at Bitcoin 2019 this summer. Brian recently joined the team at Casa, which happened to have just released details on the Node 2. So this seemed like the perfect time to have Brian as a guest.
I learned a lot from Brian, including how Bitcoin got on his radar (hint: it's the tech), his five-year Bitcoin Rip Van Winkle experience, and the Casa Node 2. We even review some recently highlight...Read More

Welcome to episode 70 of The Bitcoin Game, I'm Rob Mitchell. I'm always wanting to learn things via my podcast, and hopefully it helps others learn too. So when I heard Michael Flaxman on Stephan Livera's podcast, I thought he was such a compelling guest that I just had to have him on The Bitcoin Game. In this episode we dive into details about Bitcoin, security, and multisig.

Welcome to episode 69 of The Bitcoin Game, I'm Rob Mitchell. I attended Bitcoin 2019 in June and recorded a bunch of great interviews. But only one interview was with someone I kind of knew, and that was Doug Scribner. He's been in the scene a long time, and recalls buying Bitcoin at Porcfest from Charlie Shrem, Erik Voorhees, and Roger Ver. His first major project, WatchMyBit, was a bit ahead of its time (pun unintended). Now he's focused on Vault L...Read More

Welcome to episode 68 of The Bitcoin Game, I'm Rob Mitchell. I introduced myself to Paul Sztorc at Bitcoin 2019 and asked him if he'd be up for an interview. I was thrilled that he gave me an unqualified "yes." This ended up being, by far, my longest interview of the conference, and I appreciate that Paul was willing to hang out with me for a big chunk of the second day of the event. I really feel like I got to know Paul in this longest episode I've re...Read More

Welcome to episode 66 of The Bitcoin Game, I'm Rob Mitchell. My second interview at the recent Bitcoin 2019 conference in San Francisco was with Jeremy Rubin, a fascinating guy who has contributed a ton to Bitcoin. We review Jeremy's background, discuss his current project (a BIP intended to aid with scaling pressures), and we revisit his controversial idea of a Bitcoin reorg in the wake of the recent Binance hack. And a lot more! Jeremy provides some pretty compelling content; I bet you'll en...Read More

Welcome to episode 65 of The Bitcoin Game. I'm Rob Mitchell, and I just got back from the Bitcoin 2019 conference in San Francisco. I'm really glad I decided to attend after taking a long break from conferences, as I had a great time and got some really good interviews. I'm going to release them in the order I recorded them, so up first is Jimmy Song.
Oh, I also want listener feedback. This interview is unedited, whereas my typical episodes are heavily edited, with the goal of delivering th...Read More

The other day, an interesting post crossed my path on "Crypto Twitter." This guy was super excited about receiving his Coinmine, a device I was not familiar with. It appeared to be a plug-and-play multi-purpose GPU miner and Bitcoin/Lightning Network full node. And it looked pretty. I was intrigued. I started investigating the product, and quickly discovered that Coinminer's headquarters is right here in Los Angeles. And that's how my interview with Farbood Nivi, CEO and co-founder of Coinmine, ...Read More
