The largest ASIC manufacturer and operator of several mining pools, Bitmain is the center of many controversies and discussions around centralization in the space.

We explore the origins of Bitmain and its founders, the economics of ASIC production, its past and current relationships with different communities, and the future of the company.

Topics discussed in this episode:

  • Nishant’s Story in the Bitcoin mining space and how it led to joining Bitmain

He started working at BlueWallet after seeing all the wallets in the space drifting towards ICOs and altcoins. The lack of a dedicated bitcoin option was pretty disappointing. After a quick online search he stumbled upon BlueWallet. After sending them an email, contributing some code, he officially joined the team. Bluewallet is a free and open source project ran and bootstrapped by volunteers, and Bitcoin users. It was forged in the ashes of the 2017 bull run, where wallets where not prepared to handle the high fees scenario, giving benefit to the miners instead of the users. At the same time most wallets were doing ICOs and promoting anti-bitcoin forks. Bluewallet was then created to focus on bitcoin and its users.

What Bitcoiners Can Learn from the OneCoin Scam with Jamie Bartlett – WBD168

What Bitcoiners Can Learn from the OneCoin Scam with Jamie Bartlett – WBD168

‚œPeople who invest heavily in something, put all their money and their hopes into it. It’s very hard for them to leave because they have to accept that all that was a waste, that they’ve been duped, that they’ve been tricked and they tricked other people.‘‚“ Jamie Bartlett

  • Location: London
  • Date: Monday, 11th Nov
  • Project: The Missing Cryptoqueen
  • Role: Host

OneCoin, a project founded by Ruja Ignatova, promised a financial revolution. By the time Ignatova disappeared, the scam was alleged to have received over $5bn in investment (though some estimates may put it at over $15bn).

While OneCoin claimed to be running a private blockchain, in reality, it was a Ponzi scheme where buyers purchased ‚packages‘ and received ‚educational material‘. During the process, they earned OneCoin tokens, and there were incentive schemes to onboard new users.

Once people had received their OneCoins, the only place they could trade them was with another OneCoin user on the scheme’s private ‚exchange‘. While the scam began to unravel with the disappearance of Ruja and the arrest of her brother, many struggled to accept it was a scam and money continued to pour in.

The word scam is thrown around loosely in crypto, often from cult-like followers who disagree with an ideology that another coin possesses or sometimes due to a lack of knowledge. While some projects may be misguided or have questionable use-cases, not all are scams like OneCoin Bitconnect and PlusToken.

Experienced investors see these projects and immediately identify the warning signs; sadly, this is not necessarily the case for newcomers. The language used in Bitcoin and crypto can be confusing, and when regular people hear or read about a project that is ‚The New Bitcoin‘ with promises the project is like buying Bitcoin at $1, $10 or $100, these scams can quickly suck in naive investors.

So, should Bitcoiners be doing more to spread awareness of these scams as they arise and what can Bitcoiners learn about guiding new investors from scams such as this?

In this interview, I talk to Jamie Bartlett, host of the BBC’s podcast The Missing Cryptoqueen, an investigation into OneCoin and the disappearance of its founder Ruja Ignatova. We discuss scams, Ponzi’s, pyramids, cults and multi-level marketing.

Bitcoin Magazine: Mati Greenspan on The Motion in Bitcoin Markets

Bitcoin Magazine: Mati Greenspan on The Motion in Bitcoin Markets

‚œAs master Yoda says, the future is always in motion.‘-Matti Greenspan

There will always be different takes on the news. Something like China’s recent endorsement of blockchain technology might seem bearish for human rights advocates but others might just as easily recognize it as an opportunity for sector growth and, perhaps, investing. For example, what happens if China unbans Bitcoin trading?

Mati Greenspan, the guest on today’s show, comes to Bitcoin as a financial asset trader and portfolio manager. That means his thought process comes purely from a trading perspective. And, while Bitcoin plays a large role in Mati’s portfolio, he also follows a lot of other types of markets including renewable energies and Biotech.

Dave posed the validity of different trading strategies and some of the latest narratives in the Bitcoin news cycle to hear what Matti had to say.

Until recently, Mati was the senior market Analyst for Etoro. Shortly after this interview, Mati announced that he has chosen to leave Etoro to pursue an independent blogging and newsletter project.

Jim O’Shaughnessy – From Wall Street to Bitcoin – WBD167

Jim O’Shaughnessy – From Wall Street to Bitcoin – WBD167

‚œThe last sustainable edge in investing is human behaviour‘ because it doesn’t change.‘‚“ Jim O’Shaughnessy

Location: New York

Date: Tuesday, 22nd Oct

Project: O’Shaughnessy Asset Management, LLC

Role: Chairman & Chief Investment Officer

Jim O’Shaughnessy is a true Wall Street Legend and the best selling author of What Works on Wall Street and Invest Like the Best.

With over 30 years of research in equity returns, Jim O’Shaughnessy is a pioneer of quantitative equity research, with over $6 billion under management.

How he achieved this success is no secret, and his four books share, in detail, what he’s learnt along the way. As a New York Times bestseller, he writes on the roles that value, quality and momentum all play in investing.

His grandfather’s success sparked Jim’s interest in investing. O’Shaughnessy’s grandfather built what was, one of the world’s largest privately-owned oil companies, before giving away 95% of his fortune. It was family discussions around what to do with that money which got 17-year-old O’Shaughnessy interested in the markets.

In this interview, I sat down with Jim to discuss his career, media power & bias, censorship and free speech, quantitative easing and investing.
