    Episode 72: Bitcoin and American Values, with Nic Carter

    25/05/2020 Duración: 56min

    On this episode of BlockChannel, McKie, Dee and Dr. Petty have an astute conversation with Nic Carter, GP of Castle Island Ventures and Twitter renowned Bitcoin enthusiast. We like the way Nic thinks about dollarization, governance, and how they coincide with certain aspects of bitcoin, such as its distribution, to better understand its tech and where its going in the future. This episode is a tad longer than usual, but we think you'll enjoy the lack of brevity in this one.  Show Link(s): Castle Island Ventures: https://www.castleisland.vc Intro/Outro Music "Borderline" by Baby Rose: https://soundcloud.com/babyrosemusic/borderline-5 Show Sponsor(s): Amentum: https://Amentum.org Disclaimer: This is not investment advice, it is an engaged discussion on new technology; BlockChannel reminds you to always do your own due diligence before investing in any crypto-related project in the industry.

  • Episode 71: Crossing the River of Ethereum Governance, with Hudson Jameson

    Episode 71: Crossing the River of Ethereum Governance, with Hudson Jameson

    02/05/2020 Duración: 40min

    On this episode of BlockChannel, McKie, Dee and Dr. Petty finally get a chance to sit with one of their favorite members of the Ethereum Foundation, Hudson Jameson. As one of the main managers of the EIP process as an active DevOps manager at the Ethereum Foundation, Hudson has a very high-touch role in managing and interpreting the emergence of developer consensus around the Ethereum protocol. Governance can be a complex topic, and one that is often misunderstood since decentralized protocols are self-sustaining systems -- but it's incredibly important to understand how decisions and improvements are made in these trust-less ecosystems. Come dive in with us and learn more about how Ethereum get its updates from Hudson himself.

    On this episode of BlockChannel, McKie, Dr. Petty and Dee are back with a new season, with fresh new faces and guests.
