This week on the Bitcoin Magazine Podcast, host Christian Keroles sat down with the CEO of Argo Blockchain (ARBKF) to cover all things mining. The conversation starts with a dive into Peter's Bitcoin story which starts in a hostel in Bali as these stories often do. Peter's journey from running that hostel to operating one of the largest public mining companies in the industry is a tad out of the ordinary.  Wall discusses how Argo breaks down their business among BTC Mining, Alt-coin mining, venture capital, and R&D. Of all of these pillars BTC Mining is by far the most important and the cash cow of the business. Argo is focused on deploying hashrate across the US with an emphasis on mining using renewable resources. Peter think's is not good that so much mining in China uses coal power, especially during the dry season. He and Argo see North America as being an opportunity to align Bitcoin with Green Energy while still being extremely competitive globally on energy costs. Peter thinks that Bitcoin mining can get the best of both worlds. Other topics covered in this podcast: Mining Bitcoin & treasury management The current ASIC market? How is the ASIC Market Changing? Misconceptions around Bitcoin mining and energy usage? Mining in North America. Mining Bitcoin in Texas.

This week on the Bitcoin Magazine Podcast, host Christian Keroles sits down with Professor of Philosophy at Northern Illinois University Craig Warmke. Professor Warmke is quite unique in academia because he has fallen deep down the Bitcoin rabbit hole.

Warmke believes it is this hyper focus in academia that causes most academics to miss Bitcoin altogether.

For more technical content like this Subscribe to The Van Wirdum Sjorsnado in your primary podcast app! In this episode of The Van Wirdum Sjorsnado, hosts Aaron van Wirdum and Sjors Provoost discuss activation of the Taproot soft fork upgrade, and more specifically, the lock-in on timeout (LOT) parameter. The LOT parameter can be set to either “true” (LOT=true) or “false” (LOT=false). LOT=false resembles how several previous soft forks were activated. Miners would have one year to coordinate Taproot activation through hash power; if and when a supermajority (probably 90 percent) of miners signal readiness for the upgrade, the soft fork will activate. But if this doesn’t happen within (probably) a year, the upgrade will expire. (After which it could be redeployed.) LOT=true also lets miners activate the soft fork through hash power, but if they fail to do this within that year, nodes will activate the soft fork regardless. Aaron and Sjors discuss the benefits and detriments of each option. This also includes some possible scenarios of what could happen if some users set LOT to true, while other users set LOT to false, and the associated risks. Finally, Aaron and Sjors discuss what they think is most likely going to happen with Taproot activation.

This week, Christian sits down with long time Bitcoin podcaster and advocate Anita Posch. Anita is the host of the fantastic Anita Posch show where she highlights the efforts of bitcoiners around the globe especially bitcoiners in Africa and Latam.  In this episode ck and Anita focus in on new Podcasting technology being built on top of the bitcoin lightning network. Podcasting started as the ultimate way for individuals to broadcast information without corporate influence. It was a medium for the people. Since it's humble beginnings, Podcasting has turned into a cultural phenomena but its has also become corrupted. Current podcasting infrastructure no longer supports the censorship resistant dream of it's origin. Bitcoin looks to be an answer here for creators to cultivate community and monetize directly with p2p cash.  Listen in to learn more about Anita and the cross roads between bitcoin and the future of podcasting. 
This week on the Bitcoin Magazine podcast, Host Christian Keroles sits down with long time Bitcoiner and cofounder of the RSK Bitcoin Sidechain Diego Gutierrez Zaldivar. RSK has been live on top of Bitcoin since 2018 and has been quietly building a fantastic ecosystem of wallets, Decentralized order-books, Bitcoin backed stablecoins and more. The projects being built on and enabled by RSK have been making an incredible amount of hype in the Bitcoin community and they are all enabled by the RSK sidechain.   RSK is merged mined with Bitcoin and leverages Bitcoin as it's own native currency. Bitcoin has to be pegged into the RSK chain and Diego's team are working on greatly improving the UX and wait time for a trustless peg between BTC and RBTC. We discuss how Bitcoiners can easily and trustlessly peg into the RSK chain and start taking advantage of all the applications built on RSK. There are several user friendly wallets including Edge Wallet that allows for a non technical users to get access to RBTC.   In this interview it is very clear that Diego and his team are true Bitcoiners and are building with Bitcoin's best interest in mind. Because the RSK team is located in Latam and Argentina they have a very close touch with the struggles and needs of the unbanked and underbanked. RSK is building the decentralized infrastructure needed to sustain a financial system completely on blockchains.
