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...

My name is Rob Mitchell, and it's hard to believe this is my 40th episode of The Bitcoin Game. I was a fan of Let's Talk Bitcoin from day one, since it launched right after I got into Bitcoin. I reached out to Adam B. Levine early on, and worked with the LTB Network in various capacities. During that time, I recorded a number of interviews that weren't quite publishable, for one reason or another. But after attending a Bitcoin Job Fair, I eventually collected enough solid content to release ...Read More

Hello, welcome to episode 39 of The Bitcoin Game. I'm Rob Mitchell.
Odds are, if you are into Bitcoin, then you know Roger Ver, a.k.a. Bitcoin Jesus. And you possibly are aware that Roger is a huge proponent of increasing Bitcoin's maximum block size as soon as possible. But he's not just talking about it, he's taking action, as you'll hear.
Roger is certainly a doer, and besides all th...Read More

Hello, welcome to episode 38 of The Bitcoin Game. I'm Rob Mitchell.
It's always great interviewing a knowledgeable person who's not afraid to give an opinion, and Rodolfo Novak is that sort of guest. In this interview, we discuss Coinkite's early days, which started with a Blockchain explorer, custom Bitcoin payment terminals, a widely-used wallet hosting service, and a backend that utilizes hardware security modules of Coinkite's own design. And now, with Opendime, they've moved on to a fa...Read More

Hello, welcome to episode 37 of The Bitcoin Game. I'm Rob Mitchell.
Everyone has a unique story. When I started this podcast, I really wanted to talk to Bitcoiners who hadn’t been exposed in Bitcoin media. There are a couple of really interesting local Bitcoin traders I've tried to interview, but surprisingly, sometimes it's easier to get a Bitcoin core developer on the show, than many of the lesser-known people who also have Bitcoin-centric lives.

Hello, welcome to episode 36 of The Bitcoin Game. I'm Rob Mitchell.
I have to admit, as cool as Ethereum has always sounded to me, I haven’t kept up on it. Then, earlier this month, the market cap of Ether surpassed one billion dollars, about a sixth of Bitcoin’s market cap. The price has come down a bit since then, but seeing the high valuation made me realize I’d b...Read More

Hello, welcome to episode 34 of The Bitcoin Game. I'm Rob Mitchell, and my guest is Bitcoin Core developer Peter Todd.
Peter was really open in this interview, and we talked about everything from his relationship with Gavin Andresen, to mistakes he made in his early days working with Bitcoin Core, and a dozen topics in between. A lot of Peter’s focus was on explaining what he feels are the differences between Bitcoin Core and Bitcoin Classic, and why he believes Core is the path to follow...Read More

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...Read More

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...Read More

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...Read More
