Hello, welcome to episode 23 of The Bitcoin Game, I'm Rob Mitchell.
I decided to experiment with buying Bitcoin a new way; I bought shares of the Bitcoin Investment Trust. The trust is the first, and I believe the only current way a U.S. citizen can add an investment in Bitcoin to a recognized retirement account. You can buy shares of the Bitcoin Investment Trust with symbol GBTC using a standard brokerage account, just like buying a stock or ETF. You could argue that one doesn't actually o...Read More

Hello, welcome to episode 22 of The Bitcoin Game, I'm Rob Mitchell.
In today’s podcast you’ll hear the Blockchain Tech panel from the State Of Digital Money conference, which took place earlier this year in Los Angeles. I thought it was a very fun panel that was filled with many insights. You might say the panel was stacked a bit on the side of blockchain tech over Bitcoin, and Bitcoin maximalists (amongst others) may not agree with some of the points made. But hopefully everyone can st...Read More

Welcome to episode 16 of The Bitcoin Game, I'm Rob Mitchell.
I was excited to talk to Bruce Fenton at the recent Texas Bitcoin Conference. It was a fun conversation, and I think it gives a good sense of Bruce as a person. He answered my questions about the exclusive Satoshi Roundtable Bitcoin retreat he organized, and filled me in about his impressive background in financial management. Our interview concluded with passionate exposition by Bruce. Note that we spoke before Bruce was elected ...Read More

Welcome to episode 15 of The Bitcoin Game, I'm Rob Mitchell.
While I usually try to be extremely professional on my podcast, this episode from the Friday night Kickoff Party for the Texas Bitcoin Conference may expose a slightly different side of me. I went straight from Austin–Bergstrom International Airport to Maria's Taco Express, where the party was held. I arrived to the sound of live music and a large patio area completely packed with Bitcoiners.
I made my way through the crowd a...Read More

Welcome to episode 14 of The Bitcoin Game, I'm Rob Mitchell.
I recently attended the Texas Bitcoin Conference, and had a great time. I got to meet fellow LTB podcasters John Barrett and John Bush, people I listened to well before I started this podcast. I also got to meet some Bitcoin heroes of mine, as well as listeners to this show.
To kick off my content from the conference, I bring you this informative but somewhat scary talk about Cryptocurrency Regulation, delivered by the very kno...Read More
