It saddens us how many people don't understand the difference between the maximum block size, and the actual block size. We dive into this and try not to get TOO excited about Litecoin. But it is hard not too. No guests this week, just a short fireside chat, PABs!

Reem El Seed is a self-starter driven by the pursuit of knowledge and a desire to shape solutions for a better tomorrow. Her explorative nature propels her to push the boundaries of discovery and uncover organic solutions to human-computer interactions. It was only natural this lead to her curiosity of cryptocurrency. So what exactly is it about the deep fascination with the correlation between human behavior and tech innovation that drives her? Well, Dee is going to get to the bottom of it, on another exciting episode!

On this episode of BlockChannel, McKie, Dee and Dr. Petty put on their hella skeptical caps, and sit down with Galen and Curtis from the Urbit project. Urbit claims/seeks to be a “virtual land in the clouds” that will enable siloed, encapsulated computing environments for users. They believe in a new type of digital freedom; and even the mere mention of freedom gets out American blood boiling with excitement 🇺🇸, so of course had to chat and get an in-depth breakdown into crazy new adventure they’re embarking on. Confused? We we’re, but we’re onboard now. Hopefully you will be too.

As an attorney, a teacher, and a smart contract enthusiast-Cynthia Gayton is the perfect guest to join Corey Petty and talk about bitcoin and blockchain technology, from a legal perspective. They discuss the current laws as well as speculate on the laws that could be introduced. These two are peas in a pod when it comes to bitcoin’s blockchain and the future of decentralizing everything.

On this episode of BlockChannel, McKie, Dee and Dr. Petty finally get a chance to have a chat with Jarrad Hope and Carl Bennetts of Status. After many reschedules due to their non-stop hustling the past few months since the announcement of their project — we got the scoop. We get an inside look into how Jarrad and Carl met, insights on the projects, and their vision for the platform in the future. Messaging applications are all the rage lately, and by embedding decentralization applications (DApps) into the heart of the experience, you get whole new type of platform — and we think that’s going to game changing for Ethereum.

On this episode of BlockChannel, McKie, Dee and Dr. Petty sit down with Shawn Wilkinson of Storj. Storj is a decentralized cloud storage provider that was created back in 2014. Since its inception, Storj has been hard at work on creating “cloud farms” of user submitted disk storage, where individuals who “rent’ out their additional disk space can receive monetary incentives for supporting the network. Originally built on XCP (Counterparty), Storj now plans to make a migration away from the now abandoned project (XCP is platform created originally on the bitcoin blockchain), and move their token and service over to Ethereum, to leverage its smart contracting capabilities, and reduced fees.

This week we sit down with former Wall St. trader and now Bitcoin expert, Tone Vays. We talk about his stance on drugs, Roger Ver debates, and of course, the technical aspects on what makes crypto tick nowadays. Let’s move this discussion beyond Roger Ver’s complaints of not being able to make micro transactions On-Chain and move straight to the Chinese Miners and more specifically Bitmain. They not only manage the biggest mining pool in the space, they are also the predominant chip maker that most of the world uses to then compete with them for global hash rate. They have already demonstrated that they don’t care about clearing transaction by not mining full blocks, so what can be their motivation for wanting Bigger Blocks? Press play to get the low-down.
