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...

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...Read More

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...Read More

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...Read More

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...Read More

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...Read More

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...Read More

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. ...Read More

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

Hello, welcome to episode 21 of The Bitcoin Game, I'm Rob Mitchell. This podcast is my opportunity to learn from all types of people involved in cryptocurrency.
For today’s episode I spoke to Marco Cuesta of Alt-Options. This company is aiming to bring a high-end option trading platform to Bitcoin. Alt-Options earned 2nd place at the startup pitch competition at Inside Bitcoins in Chicago shortly after this interview took place, and the company is planning to go live with Bitcoin option t...Read More
