Description

Even though I am in Acapulco, and the sun is oh so alluring, I still found time to do an episode with Dan Spuller from the Chamber of Digital Commerce to talk about the upcoming Summit. We also got an update on the recent work being done in DC on behalf of the Blockchain community by Dan, Perianne, and their team. Co-Host Joshua Scigala was able to join, which was great as he has been tied up with fundraising and speaking publicly at a variety of conferences for Vaultoro. We mentioned the upcoming release of Proof of Love as well, releasing on Valentine's Day

About the Guests:

Daniel Spuller is the Director of Member Services for the Chamber of Digital Commerce. Prior to joining the Chamber, he held senior-level positions in North Carolina's Department of Commerce and Department of Transportation.

Since 2012, he has been an advocate of decentralized digital assets, bitcoin, and blockchain technology. He was instrumental in facilitating negotiations between the Office of the North Carolina Commissioner of Banks and the Chamber of Digital Commerce. The Chamber was successful in driving a multi-stakeholder campaign leading to the passage of America's first comprehensive blockchain-related legislation through the North Carolina Money Transmitters Act of 2016.

Spuller most previously served as Administrative Officer to the North Carolina Turnpike Authority, overseeing the integration of toll technology interoperability between states, and the electronic collection of $41 million+ in revenue on the first toll road in America built exclusively to use only cashless-collection technology. He was later was appointed by North Carolina's Secretary of Transportation to serve as a member of the NCDOT Autonomous Vehicle Roadmap Project.

In 2014, Spuller co-founded the Cryptolina Bitcoin Expo, North and South Carolina's conference dedicated to the bitcoin and blockchain industry. The conference won accolades from across the community, and welcomed hundreds of industry professionals to Raleigh and Charlotte in 2014 and 2015.

Let's Talk Bitcoin! #392 'That's Not a Blockchain, that's a Sequence of Poor Engineering Decisions!'
On Todays Episode of Let's Talk Bitcoin...Join Adam B. Levine, Andreas Antonopoulos, Stephanie Murphy and Jonathan Mohan for a look at the latest Coinbase privacy kerfluffle, JPM's tepid jump into the Stablecoin market, and the still unannounced but inevitably coming "Facebook Coin" and what it means to... Banks?Tip LTB:1FZGD64BA7B9GdwDhGGGF92amt9X6VH38Kor Via the Lightning Network at tipltb.tokenly.com/Curated & Transcribed Highlights from Let's Talk Bitcoin #392: "That's Not a Blockchain, that's a Sequence of Poor Engineering Decisions!" provided by Professor MeowCoinbase Acquiring NeutrinoAdam B. Levine: The core of what's happened here is that Coinbase was representing that they were not selling or sharing data about people who use Coinbase, except under very specific circumstances. And it came out somewhat recently that it actually was not true and one of their service providers had been actually selling that data (as many of these service providers do). Coinbase opted to acquire a company called Neutrino. Neutrino basically allowed Coinbase to do the same type of thing through a third party, but there's some baggage that came along with Neutrino name.Andreas Antonopoulos: This :give-and-get data" is the Devil's deal with all of the analytics firms. Basically, if you want to get a transaction scored in terms of its AML, counterterrorism and KYC score for how tainted it is by bad-y coins, you have to give these services every transaction to review and they will return a score. You give them every transaction with all the identifiers, so they can score it, so they build a surveillance database with this. I don't know why anyone is surprised that these companies whose primary business is to collect surveillance data, also sell this surveillance data to third parties. That's the least of the problems right. Yes, they sell it to third parties. Yes, they feed it to intelligence agencies directly. Yes, they're also vulnerable to being hacked themselves, which leaks all of that data to everyone. That data is effectively public. It is a public surveillance mechanism that collects all of the information. All exchanges do this. All exchanges have to do this. And so the initial rationale of Coinbase is: if we buy a company that can do analytics for us, we won't have to give this to third parties. That's not an outlandish claim, that's a rational choice. Where things fall apart is that the team that they bought (Neutrino acquisition) is the team that has been criticized in multiple investigations of assisting horrible dictators who puts back doors into software, been involved in State-level hacking that targets dissidents in places like Saudi Arabia, all the way up to being linked to the slaughter of Jamal Khashoggi.Privacy and BanksJonathan Mohan: I remember one of the prosecutors from the Southern District of New York was saying that he couldn't be more excited by Bitcoin. He saw it as email for money. The way they can crack down on criminal enterprises is because it's almost impossible to engage in a crime with a couple dozen people without an email record. And he saw Bitcoin as that future, and actors like Coinbase are very much willing to feed into that narrative. That's why I actually think that the most contentious hard fork in Bitcoin's history will be privacy and transaction obfuscation.Adam B. Levine: If you pick a centralized exchange like Coinbase, then you just have to assume that you have no privacy within Coinbase, and further than that, beyond Coinbase. So is there a use case for decentralized exchanges, or do we need to have a different type of centralized exchange? Is there a solution to this problem?Andreas Antonopoulos: This is a battle for privacy in the 21st century, and we're fighting this on every domain. And let's not be naive - this is how all of traditional finance works. The Patriot Act imposed obligations on banks to do full time surveillance of every financial transaction into and out of every bank account, credit card, and payment. All of that information is being funnelled directly to all intelligence agencies, working in collusion, or are backdooring each other's systems. So whenever you do a transaction on your Visa card, or your Paypal transaction, or your bank accounts, you can assume that not only are the Five Eyes agencies of Australia, New Zealand, the UK, Canada, and the United States watching, but you can assume that half of the European intelligence agencies, the Chinese, and Russians are watching that transaction too, and are all doing statistical analysis scoring. That's how traditional finance works. We are heading towards a future where digital cash will be the only cash available, as they're trying to rapidly eradicate paper cash. At that point we have to choose between that, or a cryptocurrency that is not based on surveillance. Exchanges are only doing a subset of what is happening across the financial world. They have less visibility into crypto, which means that they can be thwarted, which means you can obfuscate and build better privacy into these systems. This is the primary differentiator for privacy coins. This is a battle for privacy in the 21st century. If we end up without privacy solutions then the only people who will have privacy are criminals. Coinbase is a bank. They're a crypto-friendly bank, but they're a bank. Once you accept that Coinbase is a bank, you accept that means compromising your privacy. Their business model is fundamentally at odds with many cryptocurrency values. There's really two reasons for why Coinbase is so popular. One is, for people who see cryptocurrency as an investment, which in my opinion has always been the wrong way to look at this. If you're not earning cryptocurrency you're buying cryptocurrency, then you need an exchange. You don't use cryptocurrency, so you keep moving between the two economies of fiat and crypto. So that's one problem. And the other problem that we still haven't solved, and will take a while to solve, is that security in crypto is difficult. So outsourcing that's to a bank seems natural for people who don't know how to handle their own custody. We need to get a lot better at helping people do self-custody and security of their crypto themselves, so they don't have to outsource that to a company, with all the privacy problems that come with.JPM CoinAndreas Antonopoulos: That press release about JP Morgan coin, the amount of bull**** is astonishing, even for JPM. That's not a blockchain, that's a SQL database. You may have over-engineered it to use blockchain technology to implement a database, but that doesn't make it a blockchain, that's just a series of poor engineering decisions. You didn't need a blockchain for that. All you've done is create a less scalable, less efficient version of SQL."That's not a blockchain, that's a sequence of poor engineering decisions!"This is a ridiculous thing, and we're going to see more of these emerge. The next one I think is Facebook coin. We're going to see these types of corporate coins emerge, and they're going to use words like "blockchain", but effectively what these are, is centralized, custodial counterparty risk laden, slowly inflating into shit value, pegged to the unstable debt-ridden U.S. dollar, and backed by the full faith in credit and the biggest crooks in history who run Wall Street (which isn't much faith in credit). This is a complete waste of time. Are they competing against crypto? No. They're competing against Paypal, Venmo, and things like that. It's not a game they can compete very well in, because when Facebook launches their coin, they'll eat JPM's lunch. In terms of having reach and being able to deliver the promise of a stable-shitcoin, better than anybody else in selling out your privacy, is Facebook.I'm not worried at all about crypto because crypto serves an entirely different purpose. It serves the purpose of independent, decentralized, censorship-resistant, borderless, world currency, that is not controlled by a single company. They cannot compete.Jonathan Mohan: Everyone talks about Bitcoin needing its AOL moment. They forget what AOL was. AOL was the really crappy walled-garden that you got all the rubes into because they didn't know what the Internet was. Then they got just a taste of it, and realized that they wanted more. AOL collapsed because they couldn't make money doing it, and just vomited people onto the real Internet - that was the real AOL moment. The AOL moment wasn't the celebratory thing, it wasn't a great thing, it was the collapse of the pseudo-internet that dumped everyone onto mainnet. The thing I'm excited about JPM coin and Facebook coin is that we can potentially get a billion people using a really shitty substitute to Bitcoin.Some of the articles we used in our prep for this episodeTopic 1: Coinbase ConfusionA - Coinbase acquires controversial group and tech "Neutrino" for reasonshttps://bitcoinmagazine.com/articles/coinbase-bought-neutrino-because-its-old-analysis-providers-sold-user-data/B - Backlash ensues https://cryptonews.com/news/new-twist-in-coinbase-case-raised-more-questions-about-crypt-3467.htmC - Coinbase fires Neutrino team, keeps tech https://coingape.com/coinbase-announced-good-bye-neutrino-team/Topic 2: With JPMCoin & FacebookCoin seemingly on the horizon, let's talk about Corp-o-Stable-CoinsA - JPM Coin, in their own words. https://www.jpmorgan.com/global/news/digital-coin-paymentsB - Speculation on Facebookcoin' https://hackernoon.com/facebook-coin-a-necessary-evil-3a9ad3414abeC - Perspectives on whether FacebookCoin would be good or bad for Bitcoin https://www.newsbtc.com/2019/03/02/dont-count-facebooks-crypto-or-jpm-coin-out-they-could-boost-bitcoin/Thanks for listening to this episode of Let's Talk Bitcoin, content for today's show was provided by Stephanie Murphy, Jonathan Mohan, Adam B.

The Tatiana Show Ep. 183 Jordan Page
Schaeffer Cox is a political prisoner, held in an illegal US prison called a CMU in Indiana. In 2011, he was convicted and sent to one of the world's most inhumane prisons. Although one of the main charges was dropped in August of 2017, he still remains in prison. My guest Jordan Page, a singer-songwriter and musician, co-wrote "The Persecution of Schaeffer Cox" to bring awareness to this injustice and raise funds for his defense. Jordan shares the song with us at the end of our discussion.Jordan began writing politically bent music during the Bush administration at the end of 2008. His early music is critical of US foreign policy, advocating for peace and non-intervention. A strong supporter of civil liberties, his music has been embraced by libertarians. He has performed at events in support of Ron Paul's 2008 and 2012 presidential runs. About the Guests:Jordan Page is a national recording and touring artist known for writing songs in support of freedom, peace, and limited government. His music is a mixture of rock and folk with powerful spiritual and political poetry that has captivated audiences all over the world.As an activist, Page has championed many freedom causes ranging from anti-war initiatives to gun rights to medical cannabis freedom to Bitcoin, and he is known as a leading voice of liberty in America. Jordan first arrived on the national scene through the Ron Paul movement and shared the stage with Congressman Ron Paul dozens of times as his opener during the presidential campaigns in '08 and '12. He has headlined at hundreds of large events in support of peace and individual liberty since then.His new song "The Persecution of Schaeffer Cox" is an iconic anthem calling the public to witness the abuses of power by agencies that weaponized the American justice system against an innocent man.More Info: TatianaMoroz.comCryptoMediaHub.comJordanpagemusic.com The Persecution of Schaeffer Cox Friends and Sponsors of the Show: ProofofLovecast.comToken Talk Podcast

#279 Brian Hoffman & Washington Sanchez: OpenBazaar - Growing a Permissionless Marketplace
In the early days of Bitcoin, much of the community's focus was around payment and getting merchants to adopt cryptocurrencies. Although the technology and narratives have evolved, some projects continue to embrace that original vision of peer-to-peer business, where merchants and their customers interact directly, and if they so wish, anonymously. We're joined by Brian Hoffman and Washington Sanchez of OpenBazaar. Since we last interviewed Brian in 2015, the project has grown to become a mature decentralized marketplace where people come together to buy and sell products and services anonymously with crypto. Its polished interface and reputation system gives users a similar experience to that of using eBay, but without fees or the risk of censorship.Topics discussed in this episode:Brian and Washington's respective backgroundsThe origins of OpenBazaar as the Dark Market projectThe history and evolution of OpenBazaar since their last appearance on episode 67How OpenBazaar managed to survive all these years and how the vision has evolved over timeWho uses the platform and to what endsHow it compares to traditional dark markets like The Silk RoadOpenBazaar's position on deplatforming and how it responds to pressure to censor contentHow OpenBazaar works under the hood as a collection of decentralized technologiesThe company's business model and future plansLinks mentioned in this episode: OpenBazaar websiteDark Market project on GitHubEpisode 67 of Epicenter with Brian HoffmanTrust is RiskBrian Hoffman, TwitterWashington Sanchez, TwitterSponsors: Cosmos: Join the most interoperable ecosystem of connected blockchainsSupport the show, consider donating: BTC: 1CD83r9EzFinDNWwmRW4ssgCbhsM5bxXwg (https://epicenter.tv/tipbtc)BCC: 1M4dvWxjL5N9WniNtatKtxW7RcGV73TQTd (http://epicenter.tv/tipbch)ETH: 0x8cdb49ca5103Ce06717C4daBBFD4857183f50935 (https://epicenter.tv/tipeth)This episode is also available on :Epicenter.tvYouTubeSoundcloudWatch or listen, Epicenter is available wherever podcasts are distributed.Epicenter is hosted by Brian Fabian Crain, Sƒbastien Couture, Meher Roy, Sunny Aggarwal & Friederike Ernst.
The Tatiana Show Ep. 181 Ryan and Scott of Music for Liberty
Scott and Ryan have been composing music together in the spirit of liberty since 2015. I was lucky enough to meet them along the way in my journey, and have a great respect for artists that realize the need for a touch of freedom in the message. It can be so powerful, as evidenced by Scott and Ryan's work. We get into their journey, some of the challenges along the way for their political views, and some stories of success. There have been a few notable releases we recommend, so please look in the bio below.About the Guests:Scott McRae and Ryan Rapsys founded Music for Liberty in 2015 in order to elevate the quality of music used in media focused around ideas of human liberty. Since then, they have scored the feature film Little Pink House (about the Kelo vs. New London Supreme Court Case) for which they received the award for Best Score at the 2017 Anthem Film Festival, the documentary Can We Take a Joke? (which explores the intersection of comedy, free speech and outrage culture), and have provided music for media from organizations such as the Institute for Justice, Smock Media, The Atlas Society, Taliesin Nexus, Moving Picture Institute and others. Their recent endeavor, the Composing Freedom Initiative, has two aims: 1) educate liberty-minded filmmakers about how to more effectively use music in their projects and 2) raise funds to augment the music budgets of media that celebrates human freedom and individualism.Individually, they have each worked extensively in the entertainment industry. Scott has contributed his musical skills and knowledge to over 100 films and television shows, including Crazy Rich Asians, Fences, the Fast and Furious franchise, The Pursuit of Happyness, Rush Hour 3, the Final Destination franchise, and Cold Mountain. He founded and runs Janen Music, which provides quality music preparation services and rents music to orchestras for liveperformance. He co-produced two Christmas albums, and his score for The Box was nominated for Best Score at the Madrid Film Festival in 2014.For nearly two decades, Ryan has composed music for numerous feature films, short films, documentaries, theatrical productions and commercial projects. His score for the short film Stay won Best Original Score at the Los Angeles Cinema Festival of Hollywood in 2016. He's also released electronic music under the aliases Transistorface, Microquasar and Pineriver. He's composed classical music, with concert performances by small ensembles up to full orchestra. His production music has been used in hundreds of television shows, including Dateline NBC and The Today Show. He owns and operates Total Music Metadata, a music service business which catalogs, edits and optimizes music tracks for licensing for music libraries and organizations, with clients including top trailer music houses as well as the in-house music library for Discovery Communications.

The Tatiana Show Ep. 180 Kirk Phillips, The Bitcoin CPA
I am excited to have Kirk Phillips on this episode, he has been a long time supporter of The Tatiana Show and has helped me personally with my taxes. On this episode he joins us to speak about what you can do when you are getting SIM card attacked! He has been a victim himself and will tell us his experience and advise us on how to increase our security and how to step up our digital identity game. Here are some ways to protect yourself:The 7 Secret Weapons from Crushing a SIM Card AttackKirk's Double SIM Card Attack Story#1 on 1-18-19 and #2 on 1-26-19First things first: Where are the enemies?Three Main Enemies/Attackersa) Yourself: In crypto you are your own worst enemyb) The External Enemy (The Hackers)c) The Enemy Within (The most dastardly of ALL)1) "The Golden Thread Principle" Bifurcate your emails:a. Communications emailb. Username emailc. Never the same for both2) Password Manager: LAST PASS (A digital vault for all your sites and platforms)3) Encrypted email service: PROTONMAILa. Jurisdictional powerb. Self owned and operated servers (no AWS-3rd party servers)4) Email Aliases for Obfuscationa. Special single use username emailsb. Examples: the protonmail login (creation email), icloud, ATT ie phone account, Last Pass, Mega-Dropbox etc., recovery emails5) Cold storage is for more than private keysa. 2FA backup codeb. Anything else that has a back up codesc. One time back up codesd. Last Pass ie password manager emails and passwordse. Protonmail main email and password6) Bifurcate your phone numbers (same as golden rule above but for mobile numbers)a. Communications mobile phoneb. 2FA mobile phonec. Google voice to obfuscate your communications # if you can only have one phoned. Google Fi or pre-paid burner phone7) Business vs. Personal: Add more obfuscation by creating business accountsa. Biz identity points: Biz name, State of formation (WY privacy state), phone number and physical addressb. Create a mobile carrier account in business nameAbout the Guests:Kirk Phillips, aka the TheBitcoinCPA, is an entrepreneur, Certified Public Accountant (CPA) and a self-taught woodworker therefore an artist of sorts in all areas of life. He brings the same attention to detail necessary for creating finely crafted furniture into the business world. He is fanatical about technology, business processes, fraud prevention, time management, learning and peace of mind. When Kirk discovered Bitcoin at the end of 2013 it magnified and extended his passions leading him down the Bitcoin Rabbit Hole, an experience described by many Bitcoiners. A friend of his asked for advice saying, "Kirk, my husband and I want to invest $800 in a computer to mine bitcoin and make some money. What do you think?" to which he responded, "I don't know anything about Bitcoin, I'll have to get back to you." This simple question was the birth of The Ultimate Bitcoin Business Guide.Security Articles: The Good, The Bit and The Ugly (Kirk Phillips Bitcoin Article on Security)https://www.wired.com/story/sim-swap-attack-defend-phone/?mbid=BottomRelatedStories_Sections_1https://www.forbes.com/sites/laurashin/2016/12/20/hackers-have-stolen-millions-of-dollars-in-bitcoin-using-only-phone-numbers/#754f131e38bahttps://blog.kraken.com/post/219/security-advisory-mobile-phones/Tax Articles:The Ultimate Bitcoin Business Guide„AICPA Virtual Currency Comment Letter for IRS May 2018What To Do If You Can't Pay Taxes by April 17thBitcoin Taxation: A Gift From The IRS and The Coffee ProblemEliminate Short-Term Capital Gains for Warp-Speed Bitcoin AdoptionIf you like this content, please send a tip with BTC to: 1444meJi7YjgQGNg3U8Z6qYZFA5cgz4GmjMore Info: TatianaMoroz.comCryptoMediaHub.comVaultoro.comTheBitcoinCPA.comTheBitcoinCPA.com/blog/7%20Secret%20Weapons Friends and Sponsors of the Show: SaltLending.com
The Third Web #16 - Urbit, Your New Server
The range of third-web platforms in development today is greater than ever. From data-centric blockchain based approaches to agent-centric designs like Secure Scuttlebut, the potential futures of the third web are rapidly expanding. Today we look at another approach with the Urbit platform. Like Secure Scuttlebutt, Urbit is agent centric. It is a deterministic operating system designed to be the filter between a user and the online services they use. I last covered Urbit in 2016 and the project is now nearing public launch. Galen Wolf-Pauly explains.What is Urbit?A personal ServerA secure computer that you actually ownStores an event log of everything that has ever happened to itThat's designed to live on any cloud serverBut be controlled by a private key that you actually ownYour Urbit is meant to replace all of the consumer cloud software that you already useHow can it possibly be better than all of the expensive software that has already been created?The basic thesis is that everything we use today runs on top of a unix of some kind.The reason we wound up in this centralised world of cloud-based software is that Unix is too complicated.Because the Unix is complicated, complicated layers between Unix and the application are needed.The Urbit solution is to rip all of that out and create a single, extremely simple, complex system.Urbit is a virtual machine, programming language, and operating system in 30,000 lines of code.For comparison, Wordpress, an application that runs on Unix is 500,000 lines of codeTechnical simplicity should turn into user interface simplicity.Additionally, by hosting your Urbit in the cloud you no longer have a middleman serving you applications, Instead you only need them to host your virtual computer. What does an Urbit future look like?A single platform allows tighter integration of, for example, productivity software like Git & Asana.As a designer, Galen looks forward to interface standardisation, -having messaging, documenting, code collaboration, task management and other consumer software working seamlessly as one system.Rather than interfaces built for many people.Do we need a new back end for a new front end? Hasn't Wechat done this?Today we use many services that have unified UIsGoogle has both email and documents but do you really trust Google to have total control and visibility into your use of those services?What if Google goes away?Being able to run a server myself that I trust will be around a long time and is secure to me makes me feel alot better. [Platform Risk]Wechat is a really great achievementApps are more like modulesBut you have given total power to a single companyThe decentralised Wechat pitch has gotten tired but Urbit is very much targeting that problem.The future of cloud computing does look like that but makes no compromises in privacy or durability.So is your vision as a designer that an individual defines their interface standard and that the applications automatically conform to that individual standard?Yes, instead of going to facebook, twitter, Google Docs, etc. and having them deliver the interface to me it is much more like installing a desktop application.In a desktop application scenario most applications make use of common interface elements because it makes more sense to the userYour computing environment should feel like your physical environment. Individuals have different preferences with regard to furnishing and it is relatively easy to pick from different modules of furniture or colours of walls. These are decisions of the size that we are comfortable making. Contrast this to computing interfaces which are like a prefab trailer, or hotel room that you wind up living in the whole time but have no power to customise, only choose between. The alternative is being a Linux SysAdmin who builds their entire interface home themselves. That tradeoff is as unfair and unrealistic as everyone physically building their own homes from scratch.To clarify, it is people working on Urbit full time who would be the ones building interfaces but those interfaces would be able to be applied to all of the applications that run on Urbit, and tweaks to those interfaces would affect all apps.Moving on from the interface. What is the advantage over existing cloud platforms? How is it possible to build something from scratch that is easier to use than the systems that have been developed by hundreds of thousands of people over the course of 30 years?Firstly, Urbit runs on Unix, the internet, TCP/IP, UDP We take the existing infrastructure and build a new layer on top.We are antagonistic toward the existing web stackUrbit is designed for an individual to useYou can think of Urbit as a personal blockchain or a 100 year computer - something that has never existed.Who is the target user?The gold standard is 'œWould I recommend this to my Mom?'More than just the technical community is interested in online privacy and security.The question is more like 'œWould I send an Urbit to my cousin?'This year your friend will be able to acquire an Urbit address and use it to chat with others and make the decision for themselves.Urbit is most interesting to somewhat technical people who are interested in unusual system software. It is also populated by small interesting micro-communitiesThe Urbit testnet has been live since 2013Does Urbit have enterprise applications?In the world of agriculture you cannot customise the software that runs in the machinery commonly available.You can't customise the software inside a Nest IoT device. You cant even connect it to a different server.Urbit operates on it's own network of devices.It is ideal for industrial IoT and can communicate on a local network.Currently data from these devices is collected and stored by third parties who represent a risk of abuse or leaks. Let's take a look at how it works, the networking and application stack.3 main components:Azimuth - the identity system. A series of Ethereum contracts. An Azimuth point is like a combination between a domain name, an email address and an IP address. There is a finite address space and each address is represented as a pronounceable phrase. In total there are ~4 billion user addresses. These addresses are divided hierarchically and have different uses in mind: 264 'œMoons' (devices), 232 'œPlanets' (user addresses), 216 'œStars' (routing nodes), 28 'œGalaxies' (protocol governors).Arvo - the Urbit OS. Very clean separation from external identity system on Ethereum, connected by a common key pair. The Arvo OS has a file system, a system for building applications, a webserver, a networking protocol which is routed over UDP, a vault for secrets or keychain, and a build system. These aree individual kernel modules that provide things from the web stack. A core kernel manages the interactions between these components. The OS is written in a custom language called Hoon which compiles to the Urbit assembly language called Nock. The result is a single deterministic function that Urbit executes every time it gets an event.Aegean?Who makes money from Urbit?Employees of the Tlon company that is developing Urbit, in the form of wages.Holders of Azimuth address space.Providers of Urbit hosting & application development services Recently, Curtis Yarvin, the founder of the Urbit project, left.

The Tatiana Show Ep. 178 Caleb Slade of Salt
Caleb and Tatiana have hung out at several conferences before, and she's been a big supporter of the SALT team early on. However, at the Miami conference, they were able to get a bit further into exactly what SALT lending has to offer. It appears to be a pretty cool way to leverage your holdings, and it is a US based company, so the stricter laws may be helpful. Who knows? Do your own research, but get a taste of what they have to say on this short but sweet Tatiana Show. About the Guests: Caleb Slade is co-founder and chief knowledge officer at SALT where he is responsible for cultivating and maintaining a strong company culture. He spearheads education and evangelism efforts for SALT and blockchain technology at large, and is also responsible for leveraging insights to explore opportunities for SALT to stay both relevant and innovative.
