I failed to define some key terms in Episode 5, “Buying Bitcoin with Cash”. This short postscript episode’s purpose is to define a few terms and give examples of bitcoin wallets.
In this episode I talk about my first experience buying cryptocurrency. I was a bit annoyed that Coinbase asked me for social security information (and maybe later a blood sample, for all I know), so I decide to do it the hard way. I buy my first crypto with cash at an ATM on Overstock.com’s corporate campus. Hear about the full adventure here.
In this podcast, we review blockchains and define hashes. We talk about the basis for alt-coins. Why so many ICOs? Then we dig into an article that takes a stab at valuing bitcoin. Here we go.
Here we’ll talk about digital assets, the “double spending problem” and how blockchain is like an insect in amber. Let’s go!
In this episode of the podcast we talk about money in general. Including Rai Stones of the Pacific, mulberry paper money of the Khan empire, and the US Dollar. And we compare all to Bitcoin. Of course, we sing the accolades of blockchain and cryptocurrencies too, quoting Silicon Valley greats like Marc Andreessen.
Thank you for your patience as we’ve learned the mechanics of recording, optimizing and posting our first podcast. This episode with give you a little history and some basic concepts related to blockchain, Bitcoin and cryptocurrencies.
We look forward to your feedback!
We’re just getting started. Welcome!
