Hayden Adams: Uniswap ‚“ An Auction-Based Decentralized Exchange for Ethereum

Hayden Adams: Uniswap ‚“ An Auction-Based Decentralized Exchange for Ethereum

The concept of a decentralized exchange has been a holy grail in the cryptocurrency space for many years. Many attempts have been made, but most decentralized exchanges suffered from central points of failure, poor user experience and little liquidity.

Launched during Ethereum’s DevCon 2018, Uniswap is one of the first fully decentralized exchanges and managed to become the leading DEX very fast. We were joined by Uniswap Founder Hayden Adams to discuss Uniswap’s unique model, the different participants in the protocol and the importance of decentralized exchanges for the blockchain space.

Topics discussed in this episode:

  • How Hayden’s exploratory project to learn smart contract development took off and became Uniswap
  • How Uniswap works and its different participants
  • The advantage of using auctions instead of order books
  • The role of liquidity providers in Uniswap
  • Feedback loops that can make Uniswap markets popular or collapse
  • The challenging economics of liquidity shares
  • Addressing Arthur Hayes‘ criticism of decentralized exchanges
  • Why Uniswap didn’t create a tokeneconomic monetization model

What Bitcoin Did #117 – Bitcoin Changes Everything with Jeremy Welch

What Bitcoin Did #117 – Bitcoin Changes Everything with Jeremy Welch

Interview location: London

Interview date: Tuesday 11th Jun, 2019

Company: Casa

Role: Founder

One of the hardest things to define is what Bitcoin is. Is it digital gold, a medium of exchange or an entirely new financial system? As people continue to fight on Reddit about whether Satoshi built Bitcoin as a store of value or a medium of exchange, would he have envisaged Microsoft would create decentralised IDs using the protocol?

As Bitcoin continues to evolve, it is becoming more apparent that the protocol has the potential to be much more than just money, even more than a new financial system. Bitcoin could change our entire relationship with the Internet, each other and our governments.

I met with Jeremy to discuss the Tweetstorm he published addressing threats to the ad tech industry. I wrote about something similar, the decentralised threat to advertising, the common thread being the growth of data farming by silicon valley behemoths eroding our privacy.

Jeremy identified that Bitcoin has changed the game, creating an imperative for Bitcoiners to protect their privacy. Other large companies are recognising this too, not just Microsoft with their decentralised IDs, but now Apple is stepping up their game with their new privacy-focused login functions. What is clear is that privacy is now in demand and becoming a tool for competition.

In this interview, we quickly moved beyond ad tech and discussed how Bitcoin changes everything, a civilisation change and we may be just scratching the surface. The impact on the Internet and society at large could be profound, killing the freemium web model and giving users much more control over their data and online relationships.

The Bitcoin Game #64: Farbood Nivi of Coinmine

The Bitcoin Game #64: Farbood Nivi of Coinmine

The other day, an interesting post crossed my path on „Crypto Twitter.“ This guy was super excited about receiving his Coinmine, a device I was not familiar with. It appeared to be a plug-and-play multi-purpose GPU miner and Bitcoin/Lightning Network full node. And it looked pretty. I was intrigued. I started investigating the product, and quickly discovered that Coinminer’s headquarters is right here in Los Angeles. And that’s how my interview with Farbood Nivi, CEO and co-founder of Coinmine, was conceived.

I hadn’t really considered multi-purpose devices such as a Coinmine, which currently can mine Ethereum, Monero, Zcash and Grin. It’s not hard to imagine that future incarnations of this product could bring full Bitcoin/Lightning nodes and speculative Cryptocurrency mining to many new mainstream people who are willing to pay a premium for this level of simplicity. Could cloud-controlled plug-and-play devices theoretically give a centralized party too much control over a lot of miners? Please comment below if you have thoughts!

After arranging this interview, Coinmine offered me a $50 discount for listeners, which can be claimed using the discount code BitcoinGame at checkout, or going to this URL: The Bitcoin Game will receive a referral fee for purchases using this code, however, that did not influence the content of this episode. Before purchasing, please consider electricity usage in addition to the cost of the miner itself, and note that Bitcoin and Lightning Network features are not active yet.
