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.

Technology’s greatest potential is to increase the ability and ease with which connections are forged and understanding between people is built.

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.

Nate Dogg said it best: 'Smoke weed everyday'. Well, at least the legal kind, right? Well this episode, it's blockchain meets cannabis as The TOKES Platform provides a digital currency solution dedicated to the Cannabis Industry via a token called, you guessed it, “TOKES.” With this episode, we invite Michael Wagner on to facilitate the necessary education and training to secure and protect digital assets. Also, our faith in bitcoin is kind of in limbo. UH OH!

On this episode of BlockChannel, McKie, Dee and Dr. Petty are joined by Richard Craib. Richard is the mind behind “Numerai”; an AI-based hedge fund that feeds off of data science and machine-learning modeling. Models that are used on Numerai for algorithmic trading are submitted by users (Data Scientists) on the platform, where they are rewarded “Numeraire” tokens for successful modeling. Numeraire is not a currency in itself; the tokens are used for Data Scientists to essentially “bet” on their own machine learning models and how well they’d actually perform on a live market with real money. This form of “staking” allows the scientist to essentially receive a dividend of sorts for their successful modeling. As the success of Numerai grows, so will the overall proportion of funds being paid off to data scientists.

This project is made possible my utilizing the Ethereum public chain; we believe it’s a ground-breaking concept, one that hopefully is replicated across other hard sciences. Dive in and keep an open-mind!

It came to me when I was sitting in the shower, and I couldn't stop laughing about it. The juxtaposition of an educational website with an egregious grammatical error is immensely satisfying, and also acts as a reminder that seriousness doesn't help you to learn anything. That is the explanation of our guest today, Greg Walker a.k.a. inersha, about why he started a Bitcoin website. Bitcoin is currently the biggest possible challenge at this moment in time for explaining how something works, so here we go, PABS!
