We chat in depth about the negative and positive aspects on increasing the bitcoin blocksize. In addition, Lil B comes through to the Bitcoin Podcast to talk about bitcoin, the music industry and spread love. In fact, he specializes in love. After appearing on MSNBC, and conducting lectures at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and at Carnegie Mellon University, we wanted to hear from The BasedGod himself about life's most wonderful internet magic money. Quiet children....The BasedGod is speaking.
Marcello sings Ace of Base and makes a 9/11 reference. In addition we talk about Mike Hearn and how it has affected the crypto-community and M.K. Lords joins us on the show this week! And although she sounds like the level 9 boss on Dark Souls II, she is a prominent voice for privacy and accountability in the Bitcoin space and she brings her diverse experience in public speaking, writing, event organization and content creation to the podcast to school us on spreading the values of the Airbitz team. After all....Airbitz helps to spend bitcoins “in the real world”. If you start seeing the same black cat walk past your door twice, YOUR WINDOWS JUST TURNED INTO BRICK WALLS, RUN!!
Imogen Heap joins us in the studio this week to get to the bottom of why, in our age of the internet, many artists are struggling to get a fair deal. She is hoping to change all that, using a technology that could revolutionize the way music is produced and shared. Blockchain technology aims to record all recent transactions on a network and file them back as a permanent database. In addition, past guest Tony Sakich (Augur) loved being on the show so much he joins us this week on the roundtable. IMOGEN HEAP IS ON THE SHOW! A monstrous psychedelic bubble just exploded in our minds!
Circumnavigating the planet teaching blockchain, Ryan X Charles finds himself in our studio to discuss how he is starting his own blockchain-based social media company called Datt, a decentralized content sharing app with integrated bitcoin payments. Oh, and he just created his own fork of bitcoin called Ryan X. Charles Bitcoin, and it’s exactly the same as bitcoin, except MAX_BLOCK_SIZE is eight million instead of one million. No big deal. Oh, what can I say, we love the nerdy stuff. Holla at your Datt, son!
One look at the Canadian bitcoin scenario and anyone can predict that it has the potential to become the world’s bitcoin hub. This week on the show we discuss 2016 price predictions and put the spotlight on Equibit, which bills itself as a global P2P OTC (over-the-counter) platform; a block-chain-based securities register that manages OTC equity, warrants and more. The CEO himself, Chris Horlacher, joins us in the studio from Toronto and by democratizing the OTC securities industry, Equibit gives back more control to issuers, brokers and investors. They represents a totally new model that automates tasks investors are currently paying billions each year to have performed. Saving BILLIONS! Holy shit. Press play!
