@MrTimothyAllen - Award Winning Human Planet Photographer! #90
BTC $ 18'768 Today's guest on the show is the award-winning Photographer @MrTimothyAllen who was one of the geniuses behind the Human Planet Series and an awesome Britcoiner! Join Tim and I as we face down questions from each of our kids about homeschooling, photography and #Bitcoin. Listen to some of the most amazing stories from far off worlds as Tim describes some of his work on the Human Planet series. Do you remember the scenes of a tribesman scaling a tree for honey or the guy crossing a raging river on a tightrope? How did Tim feel about the series filming an uncontacted tribe in Brazil and how have these peeks into primal humanity shaped his thinking about our species? What lead @MrTimothyAllen to #Bitcoin and how does he hope to be able to transition away from his current projects to somehow work in the #Bitcoin space? A huge thank you to @MrTimothyAllen for taking the time to come on the show and share these stories with us! Make sure you go and check out Tim's new project, a new movie that launches for free next week! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O59DuGXdCbM I stand on the shoulders of giants, these guys are amazing.

Eliza Orlins has spent over a decade serving the citizens of New York City as a public defender. Now she is taking her fight to the political arena, running for the position of Manhattan DA. Her goal is to fundamentally alter a rigged system that serves the powerful and elite and punishes the poor and disenfranchised. The job has only been held by white men - upon her election she would be the first female to hold the position. Scott Melker and Eliza Orlins further discuss what it's like to run for office, competing on Survivor, her plans as district attorney, career prosecutors, lock em’ up culture, defeating the boys club, broken windows policing, the price of a prisoner, accepting cryptocurrency in her campaign, campaign finance reform, getting arrested on an empty subway and more. --- VOYAGER This episode is brought to you by Voyager, your new favorite crypto broker.

Guy's Take #37 - Dear James Woods, Sincerely Guy Swann
"All you can do with Bitcoin once you buy it is sell it, but you need somebody else to buy it from you." - Peter Schiff James Woods shared a tweet with what is, in the end, a generally rational skepticism and common initial impression of Bitcoin. From an article at Fox Business, that based its argument on a few quotes from the king and queen of Bitcoin trolls, Peter Schiff and Nouriel Roubini. "You can't do anything with it but sell it," they claim, "its a huge scam and pump and dump" they added. As a Bitcoiner I would obviously argue this is completely false, but its not easy at first to see why, and it takes a huge amount of history, and close scrutiny to see the bigger picture. That's why in this episode, I hope to answer the article, and maybe shed some light on why its views are wrong. Maybe James will listen to it, maybe not, but hopefully some skeptic out there can find value in hearing answers to very common, but ultimately very wrong views as to what Bitcoin is. Todays episode, I get into all of it, with "Dear James Woods." The tweet and article in question: https://twitter.com/RealJamesWoods/status/1329513077654528002?s=20 As mentioned, a brilliant and extensive series hitting so many of these concepts in far greater detail, by the amazing author Parker Lewis, is the Gradually, Then Suddenly, series.

Fan Long: The Problem with PoS, Conflux and the Chinese Crypto Environment
My guest today is Fan Long, co-founder of Conflux, founder and president of Tree-Graph Blockchain Research Institute and currently an Assistant Professor at University of Toronto. Conflux is a next generation blockchain protocol with a focus on scalability, security and extensibility. Fan holds a Ph.D in Computer Science from MIT.

He was also a competitive programmer, winning two gold medals in the International Olympiad of Informatics (2005, 2006). Our conversation covers the origins of bitcoin and blockchain with an emphasis on comparing bitcoin and blockchain to previous distributed system networks and how they attempted to solve the Byzantine Generals Problem, we also compare and contrast the differences between the proof-of-work (PoW) and proof-of-stake (PoS), the current crypto environment in China and what it’s like running a Crypto Company in China and his work at Conflux, and which country fears Bitcoin becomes the world reserve currency the most. ––– Coingaming was formed when one Australian professional poker player, who knew first-hand the importance of fun, fast and fair gaming, met two Estonian tech whizzes who just so happened to be vanguards of Bitcoin.
