Crazy week for crypto! This week we have an analysis of the DAO exploit. We also bring in Anne Connelly, who is the first millennial in Notable history to be nominated for Bitcoin-related accomplishments. She currently serves as the Head of Marketing for Ledger Labs, a Toronto-based consulting and development firm that applies decentralized systems and principles to the fields of security, finance, and governance. Oh boy, this proposed soft fork is a can of worms. Rock and a hard place. No good options. Yikes.

In addition, Moritz is Exosphere's Ethereum Curator which he is building an 8-week Ethereum development course at the residential program Exosphere Academy in Chile, supported by ConsenSys and Ethereum Labs. Philip Saunders, the instructor, is a voracious reader and enthusiastic amateur debater. These guys enjoy hands on, gloves off exchange of controversial ideas, and are now focusing their efforts on creating and nurturing new learning institutions that marry deep reflection with real world experience.

This episode is all about Bitcoin trading, market analysis and charting. Our guest this week is vital to this theme and we have a friend of the podcast (Marc) filling in for Marcello. I think sharing this has value to the bitcoinmarkets community because some of these experiences are hard to come by: Our guest was there when OKcoin margin called literally every short up to 350 during a DDOS causing him to lose 8% of his coins from hedging, not even trading. Amateur traders like his old self don't survive long enough to tell stories later. Well, later is here. And stories we shall tell.

Let’s face it: embracing change is no fun. Everyone likes staying in his or her comfort zone. After all, they call it a “comfort” zone for a reason—even the term itself stirs up deep feelings of calm, relaxation and security. But eventually, something comes along to shake us out of it. We welcome the team back onto the show for a third time as they revealing their latest update & expansion plans.

Coming back to the show a full calendar year later (he was our very first guest!), is Tawanda Kembo, who, having been working in IT for 13 years, has been a leading Bitcoin Evangelist in Africa. With everything going on around Nigeria’s economy, the rise in inflation rate is now about 13.7% compared to about 8% which was the inflation rate about this time last year. As Nigeria (Africa's biggest market) heads toward recession, bitcoin could offer recession proof savings. We talk all about this and more.

Is GDAX just a marketing scheme? That is the focus this week and as CEO & Co-founder of Safello, Frank Schuil is heading the efforts to revolutionize the financial markets by building a crypto currency bank. We stops in to chat a bit. Safello is supporting 32 countries and thousands of customers and is also the first crypto currency company to be accepted to the Barclays Accelerator program in London. AND he looks like Blake Shelton. This guy can't lose. Frank is a frequent speaker at events such as TEDx, Money2020, Coinsummit, and the Digital Currency Summit. This guy does WORK!

May 23, 2016

If you've known about The DAO for a few months and you still don't "get it", then we pity you. Steven Mckie, from Yours, joins the roundtable to break it down for you. TLI5 style. In addition, we invite Jesse Powell the Co-founder of, which is a digital asset exchange with support for Bitcoin, Ethereum (ether), Litecoin, and etc. We chat about being selected to aid MtGox liquidation and accepting MtGox bankruptcy claims. We also get an update on possible acquisitions. Because being the world's largest bitcoin exchange in euro volume and liquidity isn't enough!

May 16, 2016

This week we bring up 90s cartoon “Bobby's World” and discuss the 10 quotes that defined Consensus 2016. Also, swinging by our studio is Abi Aryan, who continually works to educate and enable individuals and businesses to leverage Bitcoin and Blockchain technology. How exactly can Bitcoin prevent fraud from Hawala, which is an ancient system of money transfer which originated in South Asia and is now being used across the globe?! Topics like this and more!

May 9, 2016

Bitcoin is a major technological advancement by being able to perform distributed consensus and programmable trust. This implementation, the first practical one, of triple-entry bookkeeping will lead to all types of advancements in the generation ahead and improved administration of capital. Enter, Trace Mayer, who was among the first popular bloggers to publicly recommend blockchain technology, Bitcoin, in its infancy when it was only a quarter! Oh, and he hosts the extremely popular Bitcoin Knowledge podcast. He has a voice that could make a wolverine purr, and suits so fine they make Sinatra look like a hobo.

May 3, 2016

Today we interview the CCO and co-founder of, StephanTual. He stops by to help clear up the confusion around thingsrelated to and the first ever decentralized autonomousorganization (DAO). Not only is he a smooth talkin' maama-jaama,he's smart as hell. Afterwards, we discuss how we feel about allthis, convince Cello why it's awesome, and try and figure out theeasiest way to dive in. The future is now, and it is awesome! Toget started, visit and It's got just abouteverything you need.

Wait so let me get this right, I have bit coins in this wallet, then I just pay as normal at a shop that accepts contactless payments? #Cut #It #Out #UncleJoey #FullHouse Last year we had Plutus Chief Communications Officer Filip Martinka on during the early stages in which we learned that while other methods connect to a third-party exchange or hold considerable reserves of bitcoin, Plutus uses its own decentralized exchange to directly connect customers and traders. Now equipped with a new white-paper, we revisit Plutus to see what they're up too. Don’t wait for merchants to accept bitcoin, use sucka!!

Apr 24, 2016

We wrap up April by discussing the rise of bitcoin's price, an update on the pending halving event and we invite one of the Co-Founders of Ethereum, Joseph Lubin, to chat with us so you experience a vibrant and seamless view of ConsenSys and its deep understanding of the potential blockchain technologies can bring to the world. ConsenSys has emerged from stealth with a network of members worldwide, on a mission of creating decentralized applications. Also, we celebrate a full calendar year rockin' this podcast.

Apr 21, 2016

This week, we are joined by David Seaman who has been an energetic voice in favor of digital payment innovation, entrepreneurship, and protection of our Constitutional rights. He has been a guest on CNN Headline News, FOX News, and! We dive deep, focusing on spreading news of the quiet assault on our core Constitutional rights, and what we can do to stop it. Seriously, what could be more exciting than bringing Crypto to the masses while developing financial infrastructures for the 21st Century citizens of Earth! Boom-shaka-laka!

Apr 18, 2016

This week we get James D'Angelo in the studio to explore his new data and stance that miners are in trouble. His math holds up though and we find out the problem with proof of work is that it is completely mistaken. Satoshi made a fundamental mistake and we're just going to have to get over it. And his mistake was right there in the whitepaper; it says, "one CPU is one vote". What we really have to come to terms with is it's basically centralized from the very day in 2012 when there was a high number of miners and ASICs came in and mining started to centralize. And it's centralizing exponentially; we don't know the numbers but I think almost everyone can feel it.

The first time we had MK Lords on the show, it depicted a world gracefully drifting towards the apocalypse, and to celebrate the release of Dark Souls III, this show is one on a spiraling, feverish descent directly into it. Oh, that's right, she isn't a videogame end boss! She is indeed Community Manager for Airbitz and she is doing her interview rounds to discuss the recent Software Development Kit (SDK) launch and other announcements made earlier this year. Lords says the team has been busy this year with development, and the company has more releases to come in the future. Which means, CTO, Jim Horton drops by the studio as well. Airbitz, come out and playyyyyyyy!

Apr 11, 2016 is the quirkiest video channel using PopChest Bitcoin micropayments. On episode #42 we talked in length about the micropayment system but now we wanted to record a show with someone that uses the system itself. Laura Lopez is a genius and she just so happens to be our guest this week. She is a Los Angeles-based reality TV editor. Most people are doubtful about bitcoin and its price volatility. But as soon as content creators realize they can win a lot more distributing their creations through bitcoin than with actual models like adsense or amazon, despite the variability of its price, the bitcoin market can explode.

Apr 4, 2016

Steven McKie is basically a UI designing, marijuana card havin’, business and technical professional with a broad skill set who is committed to any growing, or established business. We talk about a variety of topics such as Datt, Yours, Blockchannel, and E-40. OK, maybe not that last one. He has a BSBA in Information Systems Engineering and Technology, and a masters in thuganomics as Crypto alter-ego Lil’ Buterin spits hot blockchains at us…because he spits hot fire.

Jon Fitch says he is “too good anywhere” for most welterweights in MMA. We tend to agree. This weekend he will collide with Joao “The Brazilian Samurai” Zeferino for the vacant World Series of Fighting welterweight (170 pounds) championship at stake. As we anticipate the weigh-ins tomorrow and the actual fight, we talk a bit about being the first MMA fighter to be fully paid in bitcoin. Fitch loves cryptocurrency and he thinks it is bringing about a new form of commerce. Tony Swish and Cello are your guys on the 1's & 2's while the normal gang sit in for this special mid-week roundtable. Iiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiit's Tiiiiiiiiiiiiiime!!!

When the blockchain and bitcoin are invisible to the end user, then that must mean that you’re adding some other value to the consumer. Align Commerce enables businesses and payment platforms to send and receive payments in local currency, by using the blockchain as a new payment rail. On the surface, it doesn’t seem like a very exciting premise for a “financial revolution,” but Co-Founder, Aldo Carrascoso joins us in the studio to chat about all this juicy Bitcoin remittances stuff.

Mar 21, 2016

Baby girl, whats your name? Let me talk to you, let me buy you a drank. We're the BTC Podcast, you know us! Another drunk episode in the books, ladies and gents. This time around Corey's wife, Erin, joins us with a fancy drink to talk about what it's like being a Bitcoiner's wife. Rather than simply bemoan the lack of ladies in the Bitcoin world, she decided to confront the issue head-on. Drunk. Enjoy, ya filthy savages!

Mar 14, 2016

The boys compare Bitcoin to the Animatrix and we invite Emin Gün Sirer, a professor at Cornell University to talk a bit about how he has worked to improve Bitcoin in various ways during these, oh so troubling times. In the past, he's worked on peer-to-peer systems of various kinds. Emin has also built many other academic peer-to-peer systems, and has worked to defend some of the most popular ones in court. Let's get into it!

Mar 7, 2016

Aw shit. We're big time now. Yessir, Roger Ver is in the building! If you're into bitcoin and you haven't heard of Roger Ver, well, you're not into bitcoin. He is not your typical millionaire. Dubbed ‘Bitcoin Jesus’, the 35-year-old was the first person to start seeding Bitcoin startups and is a convicted advocate of the cryptocurrency and its potential to revolutionize modern payment systems. We chat about the Blockchain, his team, and his vision for the bitcoin industry. Sadly, Cello and Corey are out this week so host #2 Demetrick is doing this whole shebang solo dolo.

Mar 3, 2016

You know that feeling of true love you feel when you read a revolutionary white paper for the first time? Or that feeling of unbounded joy when you realize that there is no counter party risk in this new currency you're using and you've reclaimed your economic freedom? No? Well, Naomi Brockwell has carved out a most unusual career in the US, combining her twin passions for the arts and free-market economics. You see, in order to spread, ideas need a communicator. They need a representative. In short, they need a face. And, what better face than an attractive redhead?

Feb 29, 2016

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!

Feb 22, 2016

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!
