What Bitcoin Did #84 Surveillance Capitalism With Amber Baldet

What Bitcoin Did #84 Surveillance Capitalism With Amber Baldet

‚œEvery tool is a weapon if you hold it right.““ Amber Baldet

Interview location: New York

Interview date: Wednesday 6th March, 2019

Company: Clovyr

Role: Founder

The line between data collection for commercial use and surveillance by the state has become blurred. Where the NSA tracks online user activity for crime prevention, Silicon Valley behemoths have become increasingly hungry for user data with the goal of building ever more targeted advertising solutions.

Within the world of cryptocurrencies, the requirement for KYC/AML checks has blurred the lines between data collection and state tracking.

Privacy is often touted as a fundamental human right, but our moves are tracked both online and in the real world at an increasingly alarming rate. In this interview I talk with Amber Baldet about the growth of surveillance capitalism, the impact on society as well as question recent Coinbase decisions and Web 3.0.

#278 Daniel Lehnberg & Michael Cordner: Grin – Cypherpunk Mimblewimble

#278 Daniel Lehnberg & Michael Cordner: Grin – Cypherpunk Mimblewimble

Three years ago, a mysterious txt file signed by a pseudonymous Tom Elvis Jedusor was dropped in the Bitcoin-Wizards IRC channel outlining a proposal called Mimblewimble. It proposed a novel way of combining many ideas from Bitcoin research in order to create a new blockchain protocol that will be highly scalable and increase privacy, while still using the same cryptographic assumptions as Bitcoin. A few months later this project was picked up by another pseudonymous individual who started working on an implementation he called Grin. Grin slowly began to draw attention from the Bitcoin community and got a lot of traction.

We join Michael Cordner (Yeastplume) and Daniel Lehnberg, two of the core developers of the Grin blockchain. In this episode we discuss some topics around Grin’s cypherpunk origins, privacy and scalability features, no-premine fair start, and interesting monetary policy.

Topics discussed in this episode:

  • Origins of the Mimblewimble proposal and the prior work it draws upon
  • Andrew Poelstra’s contributions to improving and fixing the original proposal
  • Scalability and fast sync times achieved through mimblewimble’s UTXO set compression
  • How UTXO compression when combined with the Dandellion p2p protocol can increase privacy
  • Changes in user experience from Bitcoin to Mimblewimble
  • Beginning of the Grin project as an implementation of the Mimblewimble protocol
  • Comparision to BEAM, a competing Mimblewimble implementation
  • Innovating on fair Proof of Work through dual Cuckoo Cycle
  • Grin’s Monetary Policy and the Mining Fair Start

Let’s Talk Bitcoin! #391Exploring California’s Crypto-Legislation

Let’s Talk Bitcoin! #391Exploring California’s Crypto-Legislation

On Todays Episode of Let’s Talk Bitcoin…

Adam B. Levine explores AB1489 or „The California Bitlicense“ and AB953, or what we’re calling „The California Stablecoin Cannabis Taxation Bill“ through a series of short interviews on various sides of the issues.

First, we speak to Colin Gallagher, a longtime community member in California who shares his concerns about the process and substance of both the bills we’re discussing today.

Next, Peter Van Valkenburgh joins us from Coincenter.org for his perspective on why the California Bitlicense is a de-regulating bill, why they help craft good legislation for those states who want it, and more.

We close today’s show with Alexandra Medina, Mayor of Emeryville, California, executive director of BlockAdvocacy.org and a relative newcomer to Bitcoin. Ally tells us what AB953 and the option to remit taxes in stablecoins could mean to the cash-rich but unbankable California Cannabis industry.


Let’s Talk Bitcoin! is a labor of love, but we very much appreciate tips.

Interview location: New York

Interview date: Tuesday 5th March, 2019

Company: Morgan Creek Capital

Role: Founder & Partner

The Bitcoin and cryptocurrency space is experiencing a golden age of podcasting, but often the work behind the scenes in creating a podcast is not always understood. With sourcing guests, creating engaging shows, sound engineering, ad sales and marketing, podcasters have a range of demands which help make their show a success.

In this episode, I sit down with Anthony Pompliano, founder and partner at Morgan Creek Capital and the host of the Off The Chain podcast to talk about this. We discuss how much work goes into creating a show, our favourite episodes, our target guests, marketing, guns and our favourite restaurants.

This show was a bit of fun for us. We decided it would be a $10 fine if either of us said Bitcoin or Crypto, I lose 5-3. The podcast is available in two parts, the first half is available on Pomp’s podcast and the second on mine.
