What Bitcoin Did #25 An Interview with Toby Simpson

What Bitcoin Did #25 An Interview with Toby Simpson

‚œI don’t like calling it artificial intelligence as it implies it is not real. At some point, we will create this digital intelligence, and it will think, communicate and exist. I think that is an exciting thing and can be something which transforms our lives in all sorts of positive ways.‘

‚“ Toby Simpson

Interview location: Cambridge, UKInterview date: Tue 10th Jul 2018Company: Fetch.aiRole: Co-founder and CTO

In 2014 Stephen Hawking told the BBC: „The development of full artificial intelligence could spell the end of the human race.“ A fear echoed by many tech leaders, from Bill Gates to Elon Musk. The concern is the unknown unknowns; while technology has managed to improve our lives in many ways, machines operate by code based rules, but with AI, we are moving towards machines which can think for themselves.

AI is already part of our lives, from Google suggestions to Siri and Alexa learning about our personal preferences, but this is basic machine learning. More advanced questions are now being asked, for example with driverless cars, the car may have to make life and death decisions, should these be a programmed set of rules or is the computer left to think for itself? If the car is heading into a crash with another vehicle and the only option is to swerve into an oncoming bicycle, what decision should the car make?

What is the full extent of the risk? From autonomous weapons to destructive decisions to achieve something beneficial, AI faces many complicated moral and ethical questions. And the unknowns, a digital superintelligence released onto a global network, able to think for itself, hack and make decisions which humans would not.

Artificial intelligence innovation is accelerating, and regulation is light to non-existent. Companies such as Fetch are using machine learning to build a better future, for business and the public too, but are we heading into a dangerous period for humans?

In this interview, I talk with Toby Simpson, the co-founder and CTO of Fetch.ai. We discuss the world they are building for autonomous economic agents and broader opportunities and threats from artificial intelligence.

The Crypto Show: Cody Wilson Discusses Bitcoins Roll In Getting 3D Printed Guns Off The Ground & His Recent Defeat Of The Us Government, Gun Control Is Dead!

We kick off todays show having a little fun talking about stupid shit the government does. Then a little bit of Bitcoin 101 before Cody Wilson joins in to talk about the role Bitcoin played in getting his project off of the ground as well as his very recent victory over the State Dept. in regards to his project from 6 yrs ago DefCad.org that released the first 3D printed gun files, on to the internet. Cody says this victory in essence has put an end to gun control forever. Not only will he bring DefCad back, he’s planning on expanding that file library exponentially.

#243 Izaak Meckler & Evan Shapiro: Coda – A Succinct Blockchain

#243 Izaak Meckler & Evan Shapiro: Coda – A Succinct Blockchain

One of the key scalability challenges with public cryptocurrency blockchains is that their size grows linearly with the number of transactions. Mature blockchains such as Bitcoin and Ethereum contain >170GB and >1 TB of historical data respectively. New nodes joining these chains need to download this data and verify it in order to become a „“full node““. The number of full nodes is a key measure of decentralization, and difficulty becoming a full node translates into future centralization.

In this episode, we are joined by the duo of Evan Shapiro and Izaak Meckler, CEO and CTO at O(1) Labs respectively. O(1) Labs is a pioneering company that uses zkSNARK technology in order to construct a cryptocurrency blockchain, called Coda, that solves the blockchain size scalability bottleneck. New nodes joining the Coda network will be able to trustlessly boot up in under a minute by verifying cryptographic proofs that attest to the validity of the current chain. This technology has great potential to enable decentralization, and for one blockchain to be a light client of another blockchain.

Topics discussed in this episode:

  • Scalability challenges of current cryptocurrencies
  • Background on O(1) Labs and their mission statement
  • How Coda uses succinct computational integrity technology (zkSNARKs) to enable further decentralization of blockchains
  • Snarky – a domain specific language for zkSNARK computations
  • Current state of Coda and roadmap

What Bitcoin Did #24 An Interview with Max Keiser & Stacy Herbert

What Bitcoin Did #24 An Interview with Max Keiser & Stacy Herbert

‚œThere is no win for the UK economically, you can change the colour of your passport and you might feel good, but you are not going to have any economic benefit at all from Brexit.‘

‚“ Max Keiser

Interview location: London, UKInterview date: Thu 28th Jun 2018

In 2010, Max Keiser called JP Morgan Chase „the biggest financial terrorist on Wall Street“ and started a campaign to crash the bank by encouraging people to buy Silver, leaving JP Morgan with a significant short position.

JP Morgan is just one example where Max has challenged financial institutions. Whether as a guest on TV, via Twitter or his media outlet, The Keiser Report, alongside his wife Stacy Herbert, Max regularly highlights the unethical practices of big banks and fiscal mismanagement from governments.

Max first introduced Bitcoin to the Keiser report in 2011; he realised that it was sound money, outside of the control of governments and banks, and The Keiser Report was the only media outlet promoting it. Max has continued to support Bitcoin and is one of the leading voices in the community, confident that the price of a single coin will reach over $100k.

In this interview, I talk to Max and Stacy about Brexit, the inevitable death of paper money and why Bitcoin is so important.

  • How her interest in distributed systems and scaling lead led her to the blockchain space
  • The mission and history of the MIT’s Digital Currency Initiative
  • How cryptocurrency might evolve over time as an academic field
  • The DCI’s project on digital fiat currency
  • How zkLedger could enable privacy-preserving auditing for distributed ledgers

What Bitcoin Did #23 An Interview with Michael Sonnenshein

What Bitcoin Did #23 An Interview with Michael Sonnenshein

‚œThe taboo nature of the asset class has been shrugged off’Goldman Sachs invested with Digital Currency Group in Circle and as soon as they did that it provided enough cover for pretty much every other bank or financial institution to get involved in the space.‘

‚“ Michael Sonnenshein

Interview location: London, UKInterview date: Mon 18th Jun 2018

The institutional relationship with Crypto Assets has been one of light touch. Where banks had been dismissive of Bitcoin, but open to the opportunities with blockchain, the demand from institutional investors has contributed towards the changing banking narrative towards Crypto.

There is growing demand from institutional investors to hold Crypto Assets within their portfolio, yet these assets present new challenges from custody to regulation. Still, the need is driving forward a growing industry of solutions for those who want exposure to the market.

Institutions hold the capital but want to avoid the risk of handling the asset, but with companies such as XAPO and BitGo offering institutional custody solutions and the likes of Coinbase and Grayscale offering products which expose investors to the class without the headache of buying, selling and managing, institutions now have viable options to invest in the market.

The banking sector is adapting; Goldman Sachs and JP Morgan have opened trading desks, and the crypto market has gone from enemy to friend. As Crypto Asset and blockchain innovation continues to move at pace, investors do not want to miss out on the opportunity within these market.

With over $1.5bn in crypto assets under management ($3bn before the crash in January), Grayscale is one of the leading companies providing products for institutional investors. Their range of Single Product Investment Trusts and Diversified Large Cap Fund allow institutional investors to place bets on the Crypto market without the risk of custody or challenges associated with buying and selling.

Michael Sonnenshein knows both sides of the market. His career started in the traditional banking sector as an analyst at Barclays before he moved to JP Morgan and then onto Grayscale in 2013, where he is now the Managing Director.

In this interview, we discuss the interest from institutional investors, the impact of the bear market on sentiment and how Grayscale handles custody for $1.5bn in assets under management.
