Dear Steven Schnall, I hear a lot about entities buying bitcoins for their clients and partners. In your case, you take the Interchange fees and buy bitcoins for your customer and then redistribute them. I am not sure I understand a basic premise her...

Welcome to episode 76 of The Bitcoin Game, sponsored by eToro. I'm Rob Mitchell.
Today's interview is with Andrew Tierney, otherwise known online as Cybergibbons. Andrew hacks everything from oil rigs at his day job, to Cryptocurrency hardware wallets and smart locks in his free time. We conducted this interview a bit before COVID-19 had taken over the planet, back in the good old days (a few weeks ago), when we were more worried about malware than going to the grocery store without an N95...Read More

Welcome to episode 75 of The Bitcoin Game, sponsored by eToro. I'm Rob Mitchell.
I started podcasting in late 2014, and one of the greatest things to happen in those early episodes was landing an exclusive longform interview with Dr. Jochen "Johoe" Hoenicke, the 2014 Bitcoin Hero. Badass white hat Bitcoin hacker Johoe (at least that's what I call him) rescued insecure Bitcoin UTXOs from Blockchain.info wallets before they could be taken by less-scrupulous hackers. This was after his contri...Read More

Welcome to episode 74 of The Bitcoin Game, sponsored by eToro. The Bitcoin Game has been a featured podcast on the LTB Network since 2014!
A few facts about David Jevans: In the late '90s, David attended monthly Cypherpunk meetups in Palo Alto. David hired Nick Szabo to help with IronKey (David's previous business, a secure USB product). And David is currently the founder and CEO of CipherTrace, one of the big three "blockchain analysis" companies.
David's past and present positions g...Read More

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
