This is above my ability to relate to. I don't know enough about the Lightning Network, nor how it might integrate with SAFE once launched, to respond sensibly. But I can tell you that if you go to https://safenetforum.org and ask, you'll be swimming...

Welcome to episode 60 of The Bitcoin Game, I'm Rob Mitchell. I'm happy to bring to you part two of my interview with Cypherpunk and CEO of Blockstream, Dr. Adam Back. In this episode, we take a deep dive into Liquid, Blockstream's new federated sidechain. There's a lot more to Liquid than I realized, and it's fascinating to hear tons of details about the protocol. I lead us astray with some of my questions, but Dr. Back never fails to drop tons of crypto-knowledge.
And if you missed the fi...Read More

Welcome to episode 59 of The Bitcoin Game, I'm Rob Mitchell. I'm happy to bring to you part one of an interview with Cypherpunk and CEO of Blockstream, Dr. Adam Back. Dr. Back talks about topics such as his first computers, his early privacy-oriented work, Hashcash vs. other proof-of-work, various early electronic money systems, and his work on Bitcoin Confidential Transactions. Get ready to soak in some history from one of the people whose "work" became an integral part of Bitcoin.

Welcome to episode 58 of The Bitcoin Game, I'm Rob Mitchell. In January of this year, I saw lots of talk about the World Economic Forum’s speeches and panels in Davos. Even Donald Trump spoke at this event. But the panel I was most interested in was called The Crypto Asset Bubble, and it featured Nobel Prize Laureate Robert Shiller. I didn’t know any of the other panelists, but the one who stuck out to me the most was Jennifer Zhu Scott. She seemed very pro-Bitcoin and was a very eloquent...Read More

Welcome to episode 57 of The Bitcoin Game, I'm Rob Mitchell. I’m someone who feels a bit like a Bitcoin Maximalist, yet I still really wanted to learn about Amaury Séchet, lead developer of Bitcoin Cash (EDIT: note it's been pointed out that Amaury is the lead dev of Bitcoin ABC, the main client used for BCH, but he isn't technically the lead dev for BCH - apologies for the inaccurate wording). I like that many of Amaury's opinions seem fairly independent, rather than sticking to a party l...Read More

Welcome to episode 56 of The Bitcoin Game, I'm Rob Mitchell. I met Peter Kroll at a Bitcoin conference about a year ago. When I asked Peter what his involvement was with Bitcoin, he told me he created the original Bitcoin paper wallet at BitAddress.org. I was pretty impressed, having used his tool often! Peter had kept it a secret that he was behind BitAddress.org until late 2014, and even since then, he's kept a pretty low profile. We cover a ton of topics in this exclusive interview, includ...Read More

Welcome to episode 54 of The Bitcoin Game, I'm Rob Mitchell. Back in 2015, I had been waiting and waiting for a Bitcoin conference to be held here in Los Angeles. I finally gave up and booked a trip to the 2015 Texas Bitcoin Conference. Of course, shortly after making arrangements to go to Austin, LA’s first Bitcoin conference, The State of Digital Money, was announced. 2018 marks the third year I've participated in SODM, this time moderating a diverse panel of guests speaking on the broad ...Read More

Hello, welcome to episode 53 of The Bitcoin Game, I'm Rob Mitchell. In this episode I speak to Zac McClure of TokenTax, in what I feel is one of the most in-depth cryptocurrency tax discussions I’ve ever heard on a podcast. We discuss everything from like-kind cryptocurrency exchanges to the idea of selecting specific cost-basis cryptocurrency when giving a gift. We also cover some of the features of TokenTax, a new service to help people manage cryptocurrency taxes.
If you decide to giv...Read More

Hello, welcome to episode 52 of The Bitcoin Game, I'm Rob Mitchell. This episode I speak with Mike In Space, longtime creator of Bitcoin memes, and more recently, the host of the comedy series, Bitcoin Car Talk. I’ve never heard Mike interviewed, so I thought it would be fun to learn a bit more about him. I enjoy Mike’s unique sense of humor enough that you'll hear me laugh just hearing his voice at the beginning of our conversation.

Hello, welcome to episode 51 of The Bitcoin Game, I'm Rob Mitchell. Since my last episode, we’ve seen the Bitcoin 2X fork called off, and just when it seemed everyone could relax for five minutes, the Bitcoin Cash fork went on a full scale blitz. Bitcoin never disappoints in providing interesting times.
In October, the Los Angeles Bitcoin Meetup featured a talk with Bitcoin Core developer Jonas Schnelli. Jonas gave a presentation called The Bitcoin Core project explained: What is Bitcoin...Read More
