Comparing blockchain now to the the iPad’s predecessor



Did the iPad have a predecessor? Yes. Why don’t we even know it by name? Will we remember blockchain as it is today? If not, why not?

In this podcast episode we explore this idea that a first version of a technology is often not the ultimate version. Give it a listen.


Traditional Thought Leaders vs Ascending Crypto Thought Leaders



In this podcast, we consider people who promoted the rise of the Internet and how they differ from those today that promote the rise of blockchain and cryptocurrency. We also discuss those today who endorse blockchain and how they differ from those today who endorse cryptocurrency as a cash replacement. Below is a chart that shows the details of the matrix we discuss.

Mr Lambo / Hat dude Wall Street / Academia
Blockchain Tech in General Thumbs Up Thumbs Up
Crypto Replacing Cash Thumbs Up TBD or ???

For whose with podcasting apps/clients that can’t read the table above:

  • Mr. Lambo / Hat Dude’s likely views on…
    • Blockchain Tech in general: thumbs up!
    • Crypto likely to replace cash: thumbs up!
  • Wall Street / Academia views on…
    • Blockchain Tech in general: thumbs up!
    • Crypto likely to replace cash: Unknown, TBD or just ?

Also mentioned in this episode is a podcast resource with a series of episodes that explore the future potential of blockchain and cryptocurrency. I really endorse this series of podcasts, especially for the newbie in the blockchain space. But fair warning, this resource is sponsored by a traditional player on Wall Street. Ohhhhh, no!

Crypto Mining and My First Rig



In this episode, we talk about mining crypto and compare it to mining for gold. Yes, there are similarities. I then share my experience as I build my first mining rig.

I mention Corey Blaser and suggest you follow him at @CoreyBlaser on Twitter. Also, I mention a helpful resource for visually learning about hashing calculations and the immutability of blockchain transactions. See it here on YouTube. Also, I bring back the offer of a hands-on exercise from a previous podcast where I send you some Ether cryptocurrency. All in an effort to spread the good word. This is extended through March 2018. Find the episode here under the month of Oct 2017, called “Your Hands-on, First Experience with the Blockchain”.


Sending Bitcoin: Behind the Scenes



There’s a lot more than meets the eye when sending bitcoin. Here we’ll talk about what happens after you hit “send” from your wallet. Sending bitcoin involves digital signatures, broadcasting to a network and other interesting stuff. As a bonus (which you can fast-forward past by going to 14:30ish) I talk about alt-coins, ICO offerings and how they differ from IPOs.
