Back in 2013, everyone was sure bitcoin was the next big thing. Then the world’s largest bitcoin exchange, Mt. Gox, imploded, and everyone was sure bitcoin was dead. Pundits tend to think that way: you’re It, or you’re not. The reality of it is a little different. But not for one man. Arthur leads ConsenSys Media, the in house media outlet and produces the ConsenSys State Change podcast.
This week we dig deep into what is known as a tech revolution. You see, Bruce Pon, has helped to build a dozen bank and industry startups while working with leading companies. He is an advisor / investor to six startups. He believes (as do we) that Blockchain will usher in the era of decentralized computing. He is the founder of BigchainDB! BigchainDB was built as a result of seeing scalability as a fundamental barrier to wider adoption of blockchain technologies. Our patent-pending approach to “blockchainify” databases give enterprises the possibility to get up and running with blockchain technologies quickly.
On this episode of BlockChannel, Hosts McKie and Dr. Petty sit down with bitcoin OG, and all-around optimistic technologist, Charlie Shrem.

He shares his views on Bitcoin, Ethereum, and even Steem/Yours Network. Sit down, and learn from Shrem his lessons on avoiding legal repercussions in early crypto ventures.

Given the current focus on blockchain development, it makes sense to support the development of decentralized applications. Wefunder’s BitPay integration allows ANYONE from cryptocurrency enthusiasts to mainstream investors to support companies using bitcoin, in full SEC compliance supported by Title III of the JOBS Act.

Airbitz, Bitcoin wallet provider and creator of the Edge Security SDK for decentralized apps, is announcing the launch of its equity crowdfunding campaign and CEO Paul Puey comes back to the show (for the first time in 90 episodes, mind you) to talk shop.
