The gang call a Burger King in Arnhem who reward Bitcoin customers with a free Whopper and then we call a Burger King in the United States who have no idea what Bitcoin is. Quite the fun social experiment. In addition, we explore the how blockchain technology will effect real estate transactions, records, and investing. We welcome the two hardest working men in the Crypto space, Director of Business Development, Matt McKibbin and our past guest Christian Saucier. To give you an overview; they launched their real estate MVP, and in talks with several prominent VC’s who have expressed interest. We have a lot to talk about this episode. Lets do work!
It’s only natural that we keep our eye on the rising tide of alternative content delivery platforms, particularly ones that incentivize decentralization using cryptocurrency. It will likely take years of technical development before this suite of technologies is commercially viable. Yet, this mountain of computer engineering is not our greatest challenge. The real challenge is to build something that’s actually worth building. To know more about PopChest and the platform decentralization process, we invite the platform creator, Valerian Bennett, onto the show to discuss his enthusiasm for the world-changing possibilities of Bitcoin. Drop-dro-dro-dro-drop it like Robocop!
One of bitcoin’s most-often cited challenges is the need for widespread merchant adoption. Enter...SNAPCARD! They help consumers spend their digital currencies. Good onya, mate! Our guest this week, co-founder Michael Dunworth came into our studio and immediately we felt like old chaps as we both all try and rethink the way that merchants accept digital currency. It is our focus to help merchants understand the value of accepting digital currencies. So you know...this episode is important. Did we just label our own podcast as important? Bloody oath we did!
In the 1960s, when the practice of software development was first emerging, the industry chose to take the ‘code-domain’ route. We have wound back the clock, and we are choosing differently. Code Valley is poised to bring a potential trillion dollar industry to bitcoin. This development team is lead by Noel Lovisa, who joins us in the studio to tell us about an entirely new software development technology. When Bitcoin appeared on his radar in 2011, he immediately recognized that a software supply-chain, fueled by a Bitcoin blockchain, would make a dangerous combination. In addition, podcast regular Tony Sakich joins us on the roundtable.
If not for DNS (domain name systems), very few people would be able to visit this website. They'd have to know that our server's IP address is something like 220.127.116.11. Needless to say, readership/listenership of The Bitcoin Podcast would probably never reach “mass adoption.” Netki is a company that's betting that domain names will do for Bitcoin what they did for the Internet. But instead of visiting websites, you'd be visiting someone's wallet. CEO of Netki, Justin Newton, joins us in the studio this week to discuss both usability and user security.
The question of "how to store your bitcoins" leads to one of the most important decisions for a Bitcoin user to make. Keeping your private keys strictly offline used to require two computers until Trezor came along and made cold storage easy and affordable. But like Reading Rainbow, you don't have to take our word for it. Joining us this week is Alena Vranova, creator of TREZOR. She chatted with us about crypto, economy, security, questions of life, everything! It's a good listen. You know what to do.
