    The Bitcoin Game #33: Hacker J. Maurice

    February 5th, 2016 by Rob

    Hello, welcome to episode 33 of The Bitcoin Game. I'm Rob Mitchell.

    J. Maurice is everything you’d expect in a crypto-anarchist hacker. When I had lunch with him before our interview, Maurice kept his phone powered off and explained he wouldn’t use a credit card, except maybe to pay for already-tracked air travel. After our meal, he used his Trezor to sign a Bitcoin payment on his laptop, via the cafe's W...

    The Bitcoin Game #32: Brock Pierce

    January 15th, 2016 by Rob

    Hello, welcome to episode 32 of The Bitcoin Game. I'm Rob Mitchell.

    Today's interview is with Brock Pierce, chairman of the board of The Bitcoin Foundation, and a highly-accomplished VC in digital currency. Brock got involved in digital token entrepreneurship at a very young age, with a focus on gaming, an activity he excelled at. As he reached his mid-twenties, Brock's companies were doing $100,000,000 in business. By the time Bitcoin was released, Brock had become a veteran in the busines...

    The Bitcoin Game #31: Bitcoin, Micropayments, Action! With Valerian Bennett

    December 19th, 2015 by Rob

    Hello, welcome to episode 31 of The Bitcoin Game. I'm Rob Mitchell.

    I used to run into Valerian Bennett frequently at Los Angeles Bitcoin Meetups in 2014. I thought he’d disappeared from the Bitcoin scene, only to realize how wrong I was. Valerian has taken his experience in mainstream television production, and combined it with his passion for Bitcoin, to create several online Bitcoin video services, with his partner, payment channels developer James Poole. I hope you enjoy our discussio...

    The Bitcoin Game #30: The Biggest Blockchain Company You've Never Heard Of

    November 19th, 2015 by Rob

    Hello, welcome to episode 30 of The Bitcoin Game. I'm Rob Mitchell.

    What’s the oldest blockchain company you can think of? What if I told you a Blockchain company in Estonia called Guardtime was founded before the Bitcoin white paper was released? And what if I told you they are now a highly profitable company, doing large amounts of business with government, the world’s largest defense contractor, and a multinational communication technology company?

    I only found out about Guardtime...

    The Bitcoin Game #29: Bitcoin Journalist Brian Cohen

    November 5th, 2015 by Rob

    Hello, welcome to episode 29 of The Bitcoin Game. I'm Rob Mitchell.

    I first became acquainted with Bitcoin journalist Brian Cohen in mid-2014, as we were both active on the then-new Let’s Talk Bitcoin platform. I saw he was doing some fairly serious Bitcoin journalism. Soon after I launched this podcast, I reached out to Brian for an interview. It took a year for us to finally connect, but I finally spoke to the man who digs up a lot of...

    The Bitcoin Game #28: Would You Trust a Bitcoin Trading Bot?

    October 22nd, 2015 by Rob

    Hello, welcome to episode 28 of The Bitcoin Game. I'm Rob Mitchell.

    When I scheduled an interview with CoinCube CEO Robert Allen, I felt pretty skeptical. My gut told me a cloud-based Bitcoin-trading-bot would be something like a cloud-mining Ponzi-scheme on steroids. I wondered, would this interview be my first exposé? Would my "gotcha" questions be too difficult for Robert to field? Listen to find out!

    *7/19/16 UPDATE: For the sake of being informative, the gains in my CoinCube-traded...

    The Bitcoin Game #27 - John Barrett of Bitcoins and Gravy

    October 9th, 2015 by Rob

    Hello, welcome to episode 27 of The Bitcoin Game, I'm Rob Mitchell.

    I’ve been a podcast listener for many years now, so when I got interested in Bitcoin, listening to Bitcoin podcasts was a natural. I think Adam B. Levine launched The Daily Bitcoin the same day I first searched for Bitcoin podcasts. And I've been hooked on Bitcoin podcasts ever since.

    Bitcoins and Gravy has always been a hugely influential show for me. In a sea of podcasts with poor audio quality and barely exist...

    The Bitcoin Game #26 - Jeff Garzik’s The Future of Bitcoin

    September 24th, 2015 by Rob

    Hello, welcome to episode 26 of The Bitcoin Game, I'm Rob Mitchell.

    Back some months ago, Los Angeles had its first Bitcoin conference called The State Of Digital Money. Jeff Garzik (Bitcoin Core Developer for BitPay and CEO of Dunvegan Space Systems) was the featured speaker, and he gave a presentation called The Future of Bitcoin. I originally believed the presentation needed the accompanying visual slides, but after giving the audio of Jeff's presentation a fresh listen, I realized...

    The Bitcoin Game #25 - Mining At Scale with Marco Streng

    September 10th, 2015 by Rob

    Hello, welcome to episode 25 of The Bitcoin Game, I'm Rob Mitchell.

    If I were to meet Marco Streng on the street, I’d never guess he hands-on controls perhaps the largest amount of hashing power in the world. Marco is the CEO and cofounder of Genesis mining, a company that mines for profit, and also offers cloud mining. I met Marco back at the State Of Digital Money conference in Los Angeles earlier this year, as he was one of the speakers.

    I've always been skeptical about cloud minin...

    The Bitcoin Game #24 - Exploring Purse with Andrew Lee

    August 27th, 2015 by Rob

    Hello, welcome to episode 24 of The Bitcoin Game, I'm Rob Mitchell.

    Earlier this month I got to speak with Andrew Lee from Purse, a company that allows people to use Bitcoin to buy stuff on Amazon, and at pretty large discounts. My own first thought about Purse was that it was some strange company trying to shoehorn its way between Bitcoiners and Amazon. But after talking to Andrew, I now see Purse as a company that is helping to spread the use and adoption of Bitcoin throughout the world. ...
