You might remember Moritz pillaging around Brazil teaching but now he has relocated to Europe, where he is now a renaissance man, a side-kick to the founder in explaining Blockchain to the world. Joining us is also Marcin Rudolf, serial CTO and startup founder.
Mark aka Crypto Maak has been a hands on crypto enthusiast since 2013. His passion for tech and crypto led him to a profession in the industry, to which he currently still does. He's a trader and sports gambler at night but by day he is the tech support you hope your ticket goes to. Working for an exchange gives Maak a different POV of the industry, and I had to have him on to talk about it! Besides the trading, betting and tech support work Maak also does DIY mining from home. This makes for an awesome conversation, and you're in for a treat. Plus we hit the buzzword of the week "scams", so please join us and press PLAY!
In today’s discussion we look at the legality of raising money through token launches, the potential risks involved, and approaches to improving the safety of these new bearer assets. We also examine the term ICO in depth and find that terminology, while relevant is second to the nature of the offer and state of the project involved. Following the discussion is an interview With Peter Van Vaulkenburg recorded at Devcon 2, applying the Howy test to TheDAO.
This week on the show is Margaux Avedisian is a bitcoin investor, founder of two bitcoin-related companies and an adviser and director at others.

Ms. Avedisian has traveled the world using bitcoin, accepts tips in the form of the cryptocurrency and has worked at every level of the industry. We talk, Ripple, ICO, investing, jokes and jokes and jokes and more.

Sandra Malalah is a new crypto enthusiast producing original content on YouTube. Her high energy and level of excitement for the Blockchain technology and the future it brings. She's very worldly and with that perspective her vision of financial liquidity is unique. Personally I'm a spoiled hermit American with practically zero money transfer/ storage woes, so to expand my horizons I've invited Sandra onto my show to a simple conversation between two crypto Blockchain fintech nerd money enthusiasts. Thanks for listening, many more, more juicy, chit chats to come.
On this episode of BlockChannel, McKie, Dee, and Dr. Petty are joined by Dan Finlay from the Metamask team. Metamask is a chrome extension that enables you to access a variety of different ethereum related tokens in order to transact and interact with the web — with the additional capabilities of interfacing with the Ethereum public chain. Their plugin and service has exploded in popularity, and developers are using it to embed Ethereum related functionality into traditional webpages. These sorts of services are pivotal in bringing more adoption in the crypto space by simplifying interacting with these new complex networks of trust online; thankfully we picked Dan’s head accordingly and got the scoop on their vision and background. We also discuss ICOs, and potential alternative methods for raising that may be coming around the corner in the future to alleviate congestion on the network.

Coming back to the show THREEPEAT — its only been a month between appearances, but we were eager to get him back on. Jeremy Epstein is CEO of Never Stop Marketing which provides blockchain marketing and consulting. With 20+ years of international marketing experience it has led to speaking engagements in over 15 countries, working at Microsoft, led marketing at Sprinklr — basically when he talks you listen. All three hosts are here for the interview, which is rare, so tune in as we tackle, sales funnels, segwit, ICO's, and more!
Shortly after Ethereum launched, Taylor built MyEtherWallet.com with her partner because she wasn't confident with command-line. MyEtherWallet is a “do-it-yourself-&-secure-it-yourself” FREE Ethereum wallet that is extremely easy to use. So obviously, we gots ta talk about it. ICO Woes included. Also we talk about Tropic Thunder, and who can sing R&B better. It gets serious.
What?! Another Erik Voorhees podcast?!!!
In this, the sixty seventh episode of The Ether Review, we set out to understand Prism, Shapeshift’s new non-custodial synthetic asset built on the Ethereum network. In reviewing this episode I feel I was unsuccessful in achieving this. However, the peripheral conversation about Erik’s view of the space is extremely enlightening, especially writ large in his positioning of Shapeshift. The Bitcoin scaling debate, the future of digital assets, the financial world’s response — it’s all here.
Some of this interview was geared to fit Shapeshift’s messaging, not something you’ll hear on TER very often. None the less, it’s fun to hear such an astute thinker and communicator knock some soft ball questions out of the park.
This week the boys welcome back to the show and interview Erik Voorhees of the instant, trustless cryptocurrency exchange ShapeShift.io about their new venture, Prism, which is a trustless means of holding multiple assets via ShapeShift.io and its own Ethereum token. Also we talk about how a person brand new to crypto, how easy the process really is. Spoiler alert: It's not. Are there any real world solutions? Also we slam Ethereum Chamber scamming everyone and we talk about Sean Paul's (remember him?) accent during breakfast.
OK, here we are in June 2017 and it is TIME to start rethinking identity on the internet. The internet was built on principles of openness, freedom and decentralization, but the current configuration frequently falls short of these standards. Now, there is an open-source project is trying to address some of the fundamental problems with the modern web. This week we are ALL about snagging Muneeb Ali to chat about the freshly announced Blockstack browser, which changes the dynamic and brings the power back to the people.
Welcome to Announcements with Dr. Petty, a show that provides you details on current events, upcoming projects in the blockchain space, and token offering details. Today's announcement is about Patientory, a start-up attempting to tokenize the healthcare industry. I talk with its founder and CEO, Chrissa McFarlane, about what problems the healthcare industry has, and how she feels blockchain technology might help.
Sup PABS?! Brandon Bradshaw, your normal everyday student at Missouri State University is your honorary onrampee this week. He is jetting toward a Computer information systems degree with a minor in insurance risk management and economics. So...it's safe to say he is interested in all things tech/business/political.
He is fun too! He likes to wake board, chill with the homies, and travel. Let's get to onrampin'!
SPHRE aims to sort through the tangles and knots that are clogging progress by identifying and addressing the issues at hand. It's been awhile since we talk about AirBitz, but our guest this week, CEO Daren Seymour, has partnered up with them. The partnership will allow AIR to benefit from the versatility of Edge Security, which is blockchain-agnostic to ensure intuitive and secure user experiences on both public and permissioned blockchains. Color us excited!
On this episode of BlockChannel, McKie is completely solo; he sits down with Stephen and Russel from REX. REX is seeking to cater to the real estate market, using Ethereum and smart contracts to connect home buyers, vendors, and agents from all over the world. Real estate listings and buying homes can be a fairly complex process; their project aims to simplify this process, from listings, to escrow, to closing. These gentleman believe the real estate industry is ripe for a product like theirs. We agree.

This week we take a quick look at ICO's and risk. For more on the topic, we bring in Nick Johnson from the Ethereum Foundation. His mission is to promote and support research, development and education to bring decentralized protocols and tools to the world that empower developers to produce next generation decentralized applications (dapps). We are all fairly language-agnostic, as long as it's sane. Strap in crypto geeks. Another week another hour!
This episode we recap on current events. For example; transaction fees, lightning network, Mark Sinclair and SCAMS. Satoshi, we have take off…There’s a lot of off topic comradery in this conversation but don’t be fooled, we drop some knowledge-bombs on you. KENN BOSAK IN THE HOUSE!
Coming back to the show -- its only been a month, but we were eager to get him back on, especially since Cello missed the first go around - Jeremy Epstein is CEO of Never Stop Marketing and with 20+ years of international marketing experience it it has led to speaking engagements in over 15 countries, working at Microsoft, led Marketing at Sprinklr -- basically when he talks you listen. I know I do. People don't believe what you tell them. They rarely believe what you show them. They often believe what their friends tell them. They always believe what they tell themselves. This is just part of it, but you get the gist.
Dee interviews his bestie, his bestie named Talon. They get extra philosophical for getting philosophical's sake. Talon is obsessed with Satoshi Nakamoto.
First and foremost, Congratulations to Litecoin and Charlie Lee, our guest this week, on locking in Segregated Witness activation! In an era when blockchain upgrades have been defined by years of intellectual combat, a new milestone is set to offer a stark contrast to that narrative. If SegWit proves to be safe, it will put more pressure on bitcoin mining pools to adopt the change. Although it seems unlikely LTC will overtake BTC anytime soon, things will get very interesting moving forward. A successful SegWit activation for Litecoin could have an effect on the bitcoin network too, though. These are exciting times to be involved in cryptocurrency, that much is certain.
On this episode of BlockChannel, McKie, Dee and Dr. Petty are joined by John Lilic of ConsenSys. John’s role has been busy working to proliferate their vision for Ethereum everywhere, all over the globe across various enterprise sectors. They’ve been very successful thus far (have you seen the price of ETH? lol jk); so John fills us in our their vision for ensuring as the Ethereum ecosystem matures, no one is left behind. Very eye opening discussion on just how far ConsenSys is going to embed Ethereum, everywhere.
