My guests in this episode are Patrik Tjokorda, Josef Tětek and Tomas Marada, we met at the Hackers Congress in Prague. They are working on a project called DEBNK. Their goal is to build global peer banking on top of the bitcoin settlement layer. This trustless third layer on top of bitcoin will be able to store different assets and can make stablecoins obsolete. We talk about how this will be implemented, the use cases they see and about volatility and price discovery in bitcoin, the block subsidy, the halving and bitcoin in the Czech Republic. At the moment the development team is looking for grants to bootstrap the MVP, the minimal viable product. Patrik and Tomas just launched a bitcoin quant fund www.hedge.capital, that will also serve as funding vehicle for DEBNK later on. We talk about bitcoin will change how we cooperate as a society 3rd layer on bitcoin - financialisation of bitcoin storing different asset on bitcoin infrastructure accounting assets on top of lightning channels CFD contract for difference: Usecase derivatives No need for stablecoins Volatility and price discovery in bitcoin PlanB, Stock to flow BAKKT, derivatives space Opting out of the system with bitcoin today Personal privacy practises "Bitcoins security budget is adequat for now" Block subsidy and halving Transaction density and Lightning Network Bitcoin in the Czech Republic ---------- More: https://bitcoinundco.com/en/debnk-banking-interview/ ‎ ---------- Thank you to my sponsors: Card Wallet - the safest cold storage solution.

Austin E. Alexander is working for the office of the CEO at Kraken. He joined Kraken at the end of 2013. Back then, Kraken had only 20 to 30 employees.

In 2013 he was co-founding the Bitcoin Center New York with Nick Spanos.

The Bitcoin & Co. podcast is a bitcoin-only show that's focusing on the why of Bitcoin. Why is it important for humanity, what are the implications from a privacy perspective, how are we able to grow this space together, what are the visions of the people who drive the Bitcoin space. I want to look behind the scenes and take you with me on this journey. Sometimes my guests are rather critical about bitcoin, which I think, is a good thing. Bitcoiners tend to be full of hopium and forget to look for possible downsides. But only with critical thinking, things can be improved. Todays guest is Smuggler, a cryptoanarchist I met at the Hackers Congress in Prague. We had a wide ranging conversation about cryptoanarchy, privacy, technology and democracy and he shares some - at least in the Bitcoin space - unpopular opinions about Bitcoin. I think it is a great conversation, which is why it is longer than usual. "Decisions should be made where the highest effect is to be felt." - Smuggler "Cryptography is better for honest people, than for dishonest people." - Smuggler We talk about: Nation States, corporations, politicians and power Cryptography and dangers of technology His vision of the future Alternatives to the state and the market Bitcoin governance Scrit Cash Privacy and mass surveillance Pseudonoums societies Dark nets and the dark web Anonymity and civility How to be not mass surveillanced IP intelligence ---------- More: https://bitcoinundco.com/en/smuggler-cryptoanarchy/ ‎ ---------- Thank you to my sponsors: Card Wallet - the safest cold storage solution.

Jameson Lopp, is very well known in the Bitcoin space for his wide expertise on security, technology and privacy. He is maintaining and curating a Bitcoin resources page with links to valuable information on Bitcoin and since his house was swatted by police in 2017 after an unknown attacker reported a false hostage situation, he is a cypherpunk at heart. Jameson is the CTO at Casa, a company devoted to providing products for personal sovereignty. "Bitcoin can’t be dead, until we all agree that it is dead and it is so widely distributed now." - Jameson Lopp Topics: Money is language Byzantine generals problem Security of Bitcoin Why full nodes are important Trust and reputation When should I sell? Is Bitcoin dying because ____? On Bitcoin being built by the NSA, FBI On becoming a cypherpunk Privacy and fungibility Tainted coins Facebook and Libra A bitcoin miner in every household The Casa node, the keymaster app and the seedless setup Personal sovereignty His vision for Bitcoin "The game of just speculating is a waste of time and it’s not adding a lot of value to the system." - Jameson Lopp "We need to have a very solid user friendly foundation of security, if we want average people, who don’t live, eat and breathe Bitcoin all day long to be able to do this. They need to be as confident with their bitcoin wallet as they are with the money in their bank, so we still have a long way to go for that." - Jameson Lopp ---------- More: https://bitcoinundco.com/en/jameson-lopp/ ‎ ---------- Special offers for my listeners from my sponsors: Card Wallet - the safest cold storage solution.

Jonathan Leong is a coder as well as the Co-founder and CEO of BTSE a multi-currency digital assets exchange and derivatives platform. His goal for BTSE is to make bitcoin affordable for anyone by reducing the volatility of bitcoin through the allocation of liquidity. I also asked him about their criteria for altcoins to be listed on the exchange and how they managed to get through the bear market successfully. “I wanna make bitcoin affordable for anyone.”, says Jonathan Leong.
