#121 - All Aboard the Q4 Hype Train!

There are a lot of indicators looking positive for a good finish to the year for crypto, and today Nathan and Neal drink a bit of the Kool-Aid and climb aboard the hype train.  Has the strong US Dollar been supressing the crypto markets?  Will the new NAFTA deal help the turnaround?  We don't know, but that won't stop us from raising our expectations up to 11!

#120 - Interview with John Wu, CEO of Sharespost DAG

It's important to keep the fingers on the pulse of the institutional investors and financial markets. And these fingers are feeling the beat of the security token!

 

Today I talk with John Wu, CEO of the Digital Assets Group of Sharespost. John comes from the financial market and technology investment background and saw the opportunity in crypto. The excitement is real among the big corporates for crypto, and John and I discuss the pieces that have to come into place for the real money to flood into the scene.

#119 - Blockchain Without Crypto?

"I like blockchain but I don't like cryptocurrency"

 

It's a phrase that gets tossed around a lot at larger companies moving to experiment with blockchain projects.  Many companies are wary of cryptocurrency, partly because of shady practices of the 2017 hype, and partly because it's an easy sales line for large proprietary DLTs.  But can we really split the crypto from the blockchain? What do we lose if we do?

#118 - Interview with Phil Zamani, CEO of Aergo.io

Today we speak with Phil Zamani, CEO of Aergo, a blockchain base protocol that uses sidechains as a way of balancing big companies' need for privacy and transparency at the same time. Phil comes from a background of working with open source projects such as Red Hat, and we talk about what makes a truly open source project, and whether blockchain's distributed past will continue to an open future, or whether proprietary technology and patents will dominate the space.

You can check out the project at https://www.aergo.io

It's time for the world's new favourite game show, The Crypto Game!  

To a hammer, every problem is a nail, and to a blockchain person, every problem is a blockchain problem.  To play the crypto game, one of our hosts has to toss a problem at the other, who then has to use blockchain in such a way as to address that problem!  Fun for the whole family!

#115 - (PART 2) Interview with Rob Hanson, Senior Research Consultant at CSIRO

Welcome to part two! 

I was recently part of an academic research forum in Perth Australia where I had the honour to sit on a panel with Rob Hanson.  Rob wrote a highly influential report on blockchain and its application and influence in the Australian context, and we had a long conversation about the future of blockchain, how people in academic and state institutions are warming up to it, and how it can be applied, especially in an African context.

 

We got pretty deep into the conversation, and we went on long enough that it justified making this into two podcasts.  We pick up the conversation talking about whether regulatory bodies and academics are fast enough to keep up with the blockchain world.

#113 - Why, Ether, Why?

Happy fall everyone! The school year begins, Nathan and Neal are back in the saddle, and Ether is taking a pounding, even more than Bitcoin and other cryptos.  Is it fate or is there something larger at play, and what can pull the market out of its slump?

#112 - Interview with David Doepel of Demand Film

The glitz and glamour of show biz!  Demand Film is using crypto to disrupt the independent film industry.  I had the opportunity a few weeks back to attend the red-carpet screening of the movie Schneeflockchen and interview the CEO of Demand Film, David Doepel.  David and his team are using crypto to decentralize independent film promotion, removing inefficient middlement and rewarding people who are interested in and support these films, and it is an interesting example of how a niche yet traditional business can be completely modernized by blockchain.  Also the film was a lot of fun.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Promotional announcement:

If you would like to see the movie Schneeflockchen, I really enjoyed it.  It's in 3 languages, a darker version of "Stranger than Fiction" that's set in an alternate timeline of Berlin. I'm biased because I am friends with David, but that aside it's still a fun film.

#109 - Throw it in an institution!

People are anxious for insitutions to start investing in Bitcoin for good reason - the influx of money will drive the price to the moon.  But what are the real barriers to institutional adoption?  How should large companies manage their private keys, deal with insurance and custody, or protect themselves against confidence scams?  And is the influx of institutional money even in line with the original Bitcoin vision of a decentralized currency without the need of trusted third parties?

There may be a crypto winter but the big boys are still playing. The owner of the NYSE is launching Bakkt, a crypto exchange that has the backing of Microsoft, BCG and Starbucks. Does this mean mainstream acceptance of crypto?  Could this mean a first move toward security token exchanges?  Or nothing more than a quick pilot project with a lot of hype?

Bitcoin is revolutionary technology because it allows a way to electronically transfer funds without trusting a third party.  But what happens when you need to interact with the off-chain world?  Or when you have a large amount of crypto assets sitting on a bookshelf vulnerable to theft? Crypto startups need bank accounts, insurance, brokerages, custodial services and more, and financial institutions are reluctant to work with crypto startups because of the regulatory and financial risks involved.  

Today we talk with Lorne Lantz, CTO of Formosa Financial, who are working with banks and crypto startups to add a layer of trust to this trustless industry.

#102 - Interview with Mikko Alasaarela CEO of Inbot

Greetings fellow hashers,

 

This week I had the pleasure of attending the Blockchain Visionnaires Summit.  It was a beautiful day so I went down by the river during a break and had a chat with Mikko Alasaarela, the CEO and founder of Inbot, a blockchain-based platform that incentivizes business referrals, helping businesses to grow through a trusted network.  

We sat by the river and discussed the project, as well as the future of business and work, and the role AI will play. It was a nice light topic for a summer day, so come pull up a chair, get some iced tea, and come listen in.

#102 - Interview with Mikko Alasaarela CEO of Inbot

Greetings fellow hashers,

 

This week I had the pleasure of attending the Blockchain Visionnaires Summit.  It was a beautiful day so I went down by the river during a break and had a chat with Mikko Alasaarela, the CEO and founder of Inbot, a blockchain-based platform that incentivizes business referrals, helping businesses to grow through a trusted network.  

We sat by the river and discussed the project, as well as the future of business and work, and the role AI will play. It was a nice light topic for a summer day, so come pull up a chair, get some iced tea, and come listen in.

#101 - Impromptu Interview with Sasha Ivanov CEO of Waves Platform

Happy Monday felow hashers!

Summer is the season of events, and in Berlin there are multiple events every day.  On Friday I had 3 separate blockchain events to attend: One for the opening of the Full Node coworking space, a followup afterparty for DAppCon, and the Waves Platform Road Show.  While I was event-hopping I was able to snag Sasha Ivanov, the CEO of the Waves platform for an on-the-spot interview to talk about their new smart contracts, his take on the future of base protocols, and the role of regulators.  Thank you Sasha for coming on the show!

Over the years computer gaming has become an increasingly online activity funded by loot boxes, and in game cosmetic and functional items that can be purchased via microtransaction. Blockchain has offered an exciting way of guaranteeing rarity of in-game items and providing secondary markets for your loot.  But with every innovation comes challenges including developers losing dictatorial authority over their in game economies and external requlatory issues surrounding lootboxes being classified as gambling.  How will blockchain pave the way forward for the hats your elves wear?  Join Nathan and Neal as they explore the topic!

#95 - What problem are you solving?

With the crypto crash, today Nathan decided to take a bit of a break from talking about the rollercoaster ride that is Crypto and instead talk about something close to his heart - how he frames and looks at the world.

Blockchain is very popular right now and a lot of people are evaluating whether to change careers to get more involved in blockchain. New graduates are looking at how to start a career in tech.  Young entrepreneurs are thinking of doing blockchain startups but aren't sure what idea they should have.

 

Nathan's advice - instead of framing your career or business in terms of what you're good at, what you want to do, or what you want to get, frame it in terms of what problems you want to solve, and all the rest will get much clearer.

Everyone has been excited about cryptocurrency since last summer, but we all know that as blockchain goes mainstream, it's the big companies who will be the driving force in adoption.  Today Nathan speaks with Daniel Benkenstein, CMO of Unibright.  Unibright has blockchain agnostic tools for registering workflows on the blockchain to help companies communicate key data securely and immutably without giving access to their private databases.  They spoke about the project and also about how companies are viewing blockchain vs. cryptocurrency and the important distinctions between them.

This week Nathan meets with Chris Tse, the founder of Cardstack.

Cardstack is an open-source framework and consensus protocol that makes blockchains usable and scalable for the mass market, creating a decentralized software ecosystem that can challenge today’s digital superpowers.

In recent years we have seen fewer internet superpowers control all the details of the masses since applications depend on Facebook and Google accounts to sign up and register. Cardstack aims to decentralize app logins to help prevent future personal data hacks such as Cambrdige Analytica from happening again in the future..

#87 - The Crypto rally that didn't happen

This week was the crypto rally that didn't happen thanks to Tom Lee's prediction based on historic trends after the Consensus conferences. There were big price predictions based on crypto conference attendance trends,  but it was a damp squib in the end. Should investors focus on these stats for price predictions? Or are they better off following the product development of an ICO to gauge opportunities?

As a bonus, we have an interview with Prince Constantijn of the Netherlands discussing crypto.

#87 - The Crypto rally that didn’t happen

This week was the crypto rally that didn’t happen thanks to Tom Lee’s prediction based on historic trends after the Consensus conferences. There were big price predictions based on crypto conference attendance trends,  but it was a damp squib in the end. Should investors focus on these stats for price predictions? Or are they better off following the product development of an ICO to gauge opportunities?

As a bonus, we have an interview with Prince Constantijn of the Netherlands discussing crypto.

#84 - Interview with Ben Jessel from Kadena

Blockchain technology is still in its early days and has a long way to develop in order to be adopted on a wide scale by industry.  Today we present an interview with Ben Jessel from Kadena who are trying to help with that.  Kadena has built PACT, which is a programming language for smart contracts that is more easily human-readable than other languages out there, as well as a "Chainweb" which is an approach to increasing the throughput of blockchains while maintaining a proof-of-work consensus algorithm.

#83 – What Tesla stock price tells us about Crypto valuations?

Neal and Nathan draw parallels between Tesla and crypto valuations, and how the mindset of investors is changing from traditional methods. The valuation of Tesla reflects the disruption potential in a given industry, and is not being valued the same way GM would be. For ICOs, they are being valued similarly to how Uber, AirBnB were valued when they were raising funds from VCs, and naturally their valuations can seem out of touch with reality since they too are valued on industry disruption potential. Given that ICOs are more accessible to modern day crypto investors this naturally pushes their prices even higher since everyone wants in on the next big thing in Tech.

#81 – Market momentum continues, but how do investors choose from so many crypto options?

Neal and Nathan announce some exciting news where Analysis In Chains are now a part of CryptoNews.com

Will we start to see more indexes for crypto? With so many projects out there, how can anyone stay on top of related crypto? And, will we start to see some form of curation of funds like we see in stocks on Wall Street?

While crypto buzz gains momentum, it is getting harder for ICOs to raise money since there is so much competition to raise money. VC Money continues to pile into Crypto and blockchain and is badly needed by anyone starting an ICO.

Also, Nathan deep dives into Hashgraph who presented in Berlin and he gives his take.

#73 – Crypto Community growing while prices are dropping

While the world assumes that the crypto bubble has popped, little do they realize that crypto communities are blossoming everywhere.

Neal and Nathan discuss signs of how healthy the crypto community is lately, with so many exciting projects and people looking to give a helping hand however they can.

One exciting project that has caught Neal’s eye is Turtlecoin, which is a privacy coin launched last December. It gives blockchain enthusiasts an opportunity to join a committed community, and actually make an impact on a crypto without having to participate in an ICO. It's also a great oppotunity to dip your toe into mining and understand why it's an important part of blockhain technology. 

Check out more about Turtlecoin at: https://turtlecoin.lol/

Also, Nathan notes how he is seeing a boom in meetups in Berlin, and made a lucky break in his company Minespider thanks to the growing crypto community support.

We wrap up with a quick on the spot interview; Nathan grabbed Saar Levi, CEO of CEDEX at the Cryptocurrency World Expo this week.

#72 - Interview with Axel Schumacher, CEO of Shivom

Today we have a special treat - Frank Chen, our local leader in San Francisco makes his on-air debut interviewing Axel Schumacher, CEO and Cofounder of Project Shivom.  Project Shivom has the ambitious task of allowing people to store their genomes on the blockchain. This allows people to participate in ancestry exploration, or help researchers access to enormously valuable genomic data for medical research, while maintaining control over their self-sovereign data and being rewarded with tokens.  

If you want to learn more about Shivom, check out their website at: https://shivom.io/

#69 - Crypto Markets are spooked again – do we really care?

Just when Crypto was looking like it was gaining strength, some SEC news made it crash again.

Neal and Nathan try to unravel the complexities or market behaviour and discuss what really matters for crypto – community building and blockchain awareness.

Looking forward, it’s more likely that Crypto Whales and Venture Capitalists will begin to influence markets since prices are looking attractive and retail investors are fleeing for the time being.

Also, will we soon start to find ways to properly value crypto? Techniques are emerging, but which ones will be adopted?

#66 – Where is Crypto Valley? And are the Chinese still into Crypto?

Nathan shares his experiences from the Crypto Assets Conference and what he realized about how the landscape of Crypto is changing.

Locals laws will play a more prominent part in the development of the blockchain ecosystem and some hubs have started to emerge. Will there be a new Silicon Valley for Blockchain? Or will it be a truly decentralized industry?

In the West we often hear about the Chinese crackdown on crypto and mining, does this mean that their interest has died down? Will Crypto only develop in Europe and North America? Nathan shines some light on the contrary evidence that Asia is the most active crypto region out there.

#66 – Where is Crypto Valley? And are the Chinese still into Crypto?

Nathan shares his experiences from the Crypto Assets Conference and what he realized about how the landscape of Crypto is changing.

Locals laws will play a more prominent part in the development of the blockchain ecosystem and some hubs have started to emerge. Will there be a new Silicon Valley for Blockchain? Or will it be a truly decentralized industry?

In the West we often hear about the Chinese crackdown on crypto and mining, does this mean that their interest has died down? Will Crypto only develop in Europe and North America? Nathan shines some light on the contrary evidence that Asia is the most active crypto region out there.

Finally! Some good news! Neal and Nathan dissect the CFTC (Commodities and Future Trade Commission)  and SEC (US Securities Exchange Commission) hearing and look into what this will mean for Crypto Markets. Is the downward trend over? Or should you stay buckled in?

Nevertheless, long term, things are looking up for ICOs, with Dow Jones volatility potentially pointing to crypto as the major investment vehicle for 2018.

#55 - Interview with Chris Housser, COO of Polymath

This week, Nathan interviews Chris Housser the COO of Polymath.

Polymath create a KYC platform for securities and accreditied investors. They aim to facilate the process to bring securities to the blockchain world and allow investors to participate in offerings in a compliant manner.

Bloomberg on Polymath:

"If a platform like Polymath gains steam, it could magnify the consequences of the booming world of token sales, which has spurred the rise of more than 800 coins. The digital fundraisers have given entrepreneurs greater access to capital and opened the tech-startup scene to a broader investor base, while also providing plenty of opportunities for fraud. The ease at which companies could issue tokens has the potential to raise the already high levels of skepticism surrounding the offerings."

The digital fundraisers have given entrepreneurs greater access to capital and opened the tech-startup scene to a broader investor base, while also providing plenty of opportunities for fraud. The ease at which companies could issue tokens has the potential to raise the already high levels of skepticism surrounding the offerings.”

#54 - Ride the Lightning!

It’s tin-foil hat time! Neal and Nathan attempt to explain the mechanics of the Lightning Network, which is supposed to be a massive gamechanger for Bitcoin. It has the potential to reduce fees and transaction time which should help increase Bitcoin adoption with merchants and the masses. Not the easiest of topics to discuss on a podcast, which is why we often fell over ourselves trying to explain it.

 

Apart from the impressive innovation of the Lighting Network, the other reason why it is getting so much attention is due to how it is “centralized” in nature. On one hand Lightning Network transactions will happen “off chain” but will eventually end up “on chain” over time. Given how the decentralization of crypto is such a hotly debated topic, will this matter for Bitcoin’s loyal fan base, and would it matter to the masses who are coming to crypto like a stampede?

#53 - Interview with Xinshu Dong, CEO of Zilliqa

Good news, everyone! We have a bonus episode this week!

I had a chat this week with Xinshu Dong, the CEO of Zilliqa. They are a digital currency, similar to Bitcoin, who are attempting to solve the "throughput problem". The Bitcoin blockchain can only process about 7 transactions per second, and when demand goes up, the fees go up.  Zilliqa uses proof of work and sharding in order to reduce the burden on the network.  This episode gets into some of the details on how it works technically and is interesting if you want a better sense of how these blockchains work.

#50 - Live Recording of Analysis In Chains 2nd Meetup in Berlin with Joshua Scigala, CEO of Vaultoro

You've probably seen all the crypto prices fall since the news of the Bitconnect scam.  But there have been crypto winters and scams before, and crypto has recovered.  To mark our 50th episode we present to you the audio recording from our Blockchain Unpacked live event from January 11th where Nathan interviewed Joshua Scigala, CEO of Vaultoro.  Josh founded Vaultoro after losing money in the Mt.Gox scandal, and created a transparent exchange between bitcoin and physical gold in response. So take comfort in the fact that others have lived through crypto winters before, and the sun will rise again.

#46 - Basics of Bitcoin and Blockchain

Happy new year fellow hashers!

Have you been excited about crypto but don't really know how it works?  What is Bitcoin exactly?  How is it secure against being hacked?  Why is blockchain so disruptive, and what problems does it solve exactly?

We have received these questions a lot in the past weeks and so we are starting the new year with this foundational explanation.  It gets pretty technical, and may leave you with more questions than answers but hopefully as you start the new year looking at the hottest crypto to invest in, this will help you understand how and why it all works and give you a good basis for knowing what these companies are doing.

Debitum started as a standard lending platform, but when they recognized the disruptive power of blockchain they moved to transform the network into a platform where people can secure loans using smart contracts directly on a blockchain network. It was interesting to get Martins’ take on the power and limitations of blockchain for lending, and to discuss the ICO process itself, and why they made the choices they did.
