Join us to hear more about their new grants program, Aragon Nest as well as how they continue to think about how they are in the process of transforming their DAO-producing organization into a DAO.

On this episode of BlockChannel, McKie, Petty and Demetrick finally sit down with our first female guest on the show, Kristen Stone from Coinbase. Don’t judge us, we’re gonna ensure she’s not the last, not to worry. Kristen took time in her busy day working hard behind the scenes to help build and scale Coinbase, to discuss with us her past, insights on Coinbase’s day-to-day culture, and how our rapidly evolving industry can work to empower, involve, and create an inviting environment for more brilliant women such as herself. It’s a very enlightening episode into what it’s like at Coinbase, as well as how we all can be advocates to create a more diverse mind-share as we all continue to scale socially.

Lauren Slade is the co founder of the Decentralized Art Shows, a grassroots effort to built the culture in the cryptocurrency community, hands on. Using local meetups and combining the art world with the blockchain industry has, so far, proven itself successful in acceptance and adoption. Artist want to sell their goods or services and crypto enthusiast want to buy goods and services with their cryptocurrencies. It's a win-win.

If you're in the Miami area make sure you check out the Decentralized Art Shows.

Chris Rice is a businessman, college student, a bitcoin enthusiast and a late night toker. His love for anarchy is what fuels his passion for Cryptocurrencies and blockchain technology. We sparked up and spoke about Texas kicking USI Tech and Bitconnect to the curb and what's next to expect with regulations in 2018. Chris dug deep into the practical use cases for blockchain technologies as well as the weighted stress by investors for real life applications. The wealth paradigm shift is only the beginning, it's the social and cultural stereotypes that bitcoins blockchain will truly set us free form. Bitcoin is the blockchain of freedom.

Today we talk with Fred Dionne from DubDub. As the web becomes increasingly cluttered with out of touch content, invalid traffic and pointless attention based metrics, advertisers, content creators and publishers struggle to find the proper way to reach consumers. Sensory and content overload make it almost impossible to captivate and monetize audiences looking for targeted experiences.

The IVEP’s economy will be tokenized and centered around dubtokens. A dubtoken is a multi-faceted unit of account offered to members of the IVEP Crypto Association with various utility, consumptive, trust, governance, transfer, growth incentive and loyalty attributes. Its holder has the right and limited license to use the IVEP protocol together with the underlying services offered by the community through a newly introduced decentralized application store (dApp Store).

Enjoy!

Happy New Year, folks! Let's talk about Marketing in 2018 - lots of topics in this episode as Jeremy Epstein joins us. For example, we talk a bit about what Bitcoin Cash needs to do to increase their marketing efforts. Branding: you need to convince people that a "new product" (Bcash) is worth more than 9 years old recognized one (Bitcoin). There's coins that are cheaper and faster than both the Bitcoin and BCH and didn't succeeded in this mission after years; Branding is an issue. That's why it's going to take promotion and demand from users. All this and more!

Richard Jacobs is no stranger to the show. However, we take a moment to really examine what it takes to put on a crypto conference. I mean, think about it -- conferences continue to be the premier international forum for research, advanced development, education, exploration, and debate regarding security in the context of finance and commerce. So how do you put one on? We also discuss crypto tax and what it costs to be poor & unbanked. Meaningfully. That's right, let's look at a reloadable debit card fee structure and imagine that coming out of a $250 a week paycheck. Yikes. Last episode of 2017 ya'll. Let's do this.

Happy Holidays everyone! Trust in news media is at a global, all time low. And democracy is failing because of it.

Elais, also joins in on the roundtable discussion.

It almost feels like the Cryptoverse is a desolate planet of intellectuals, where intelligence runs scarce and stupid rome rampant. In times like this the PABs all tend to look to the most intelligent person in the room, rather than think for themselves. Right now, that person is Jimmy Song. With fake news and FUD fueling FOMO, it’s a refreshing change of pace to see bitcoin enthusiasts like Jimmy Song staying cool, keeping calm and relaxing in a burning building. Why hasn't Coinbase integrated Segwit? What effects can the loss of Net Neutrality have on decentralized cryptocurrencies? Can our ISP censor the blockchain? Press play and jam out to everyone's favorite Song to find out more!

Wills on the blockchain? Felipe and I talk about how Legacy Network aims to create a solution to sending your digital assets to loved ones when you die, including your (encrypted) private keys. They hope to integrate in the future for offchain assets as well.

Their solution could create a trustless way to bequeath property and memories for a much cheaper price and at your convenience.

It can also be a solution for sending messages not just on passing but on birthdays and anniversaries. Listen to the episode and find out how.

On this episode of BlockChannel, Mckie and Petty sit down with John Pacific and Michael Egorov of the NuCypher project to learn more about their upcoming protocol token for encryption services. Their platform enables users to create key-based authentication to create permissioned access to platforms and services that are created by other DApp developers by utilizing Ethereum smart contracts. Think of it like Keybase…but for enterprise and developers looking to more easily shield and protect their personal data. It’s a great project with a lot of potential and these guys really know their stuff — so we dove in to get to the bottom of their vision.

What does half a trillion dollars of cryptocurrency mean? We've been saying for months now, that 2018 will be the year institutional money starts flooding the Crypto market. It's the next phase of the "bubble" forming patter. Like in the internet boom of the late 90's, we first saw early adopters, institutional money, and finally mass populous adoption and then the bubble burst. We're still very early, straddling the early adopter/institutional money phase. Also Preethi Kasireddy says goodbye to Silicon Valley and says hello to L.A. She has a passion for understanding things at a fundamental level and sharing it as clearly as possible. Oh, and Daniel Baker, fan of the show joins us on the roundtable. Lotta fun!

Welcome to a special CROSS EPISODE where this week Monero Monitor does a guest episode on our network. In July 2016, an unknown developer going by the name "Tom Elvis Jedusor" dropped a link to a Tor hidden service on the bitcoin-wizards IRC channel. In it, he revealed a new protocol dubbed "Mimblewimble" after the tongue-tying curse in Harry Potter, because "it is used to prevent the blockchain from talking about all user's information".

In the time since, multiple researchers and developers have continued to flesh out and build on Jedusor's innovation, in many respects led by Andrew Poelstra, a Bitcoin developer and mathematician at Blockstream.

This deep dive with Andrew covers the technical details of Mimblewimble's scaling and privacy-enhancing features, discusses the real world logistics of using the protocol, and looks at some of the coolest features enabled by the technology. We discuss how Bulletproofs can help both Mimblewimble and Monero better scale, and also touch on how ValueShuffle might further improve privacy in Mimblewimble.

How can projects like Gitcoin and Bounties Network help shape the evolving nature of work? The internet and sharing economy has changed many things about how we think about work. Now imagine what the next generation of work platforms built on Ethereum could do.

We talk about why Mark and Kevin chose to work on similar projects, how they collaborate, and the breadth vs depth differences between incentivizing open source software projects (Gitcoin) vs open-ended work platform (Bounties Network).
