Digital Cash Rundown 32 with Spencer Kuzara: THORChain Exploits, Bitcoin Twitter Tipping and More!
Spencer Kuzara comes back on the Rundown to talk the latest happenings, including of course the high-profile THORChain exploits/hacks resulting in the loss of millions of dollars, and their path forward with the "Chaosnet" approach to mainnet testing and the associated risks. We also go over Twitter's plan to include Bitcoin tipping on the platform, and the technical means by which that may be achieved, most likely by the Lightning network. We also go over central bank digital currencies, in this case Nigeria's, and the continuing decentralization of Bitcoin mining after the China ban. Donate - Sponsors Thank you so much for listening!

Jeremy Kauffman on the LBRY Blockchain's Future and Odysee's New Features
LBRY and Odysee CEO Jeremy Kauffman comes back on the podcast to talk about the recent progress both have had, but also to address some concerns as to the future, particularly in the age of the SEC's lawsuit against LBRY, which Kauffman believes may be looking shakier by the day. We talk about Odysee's move to facilitate credit card payments on the platform without using the native token, as well as what that means for the token itself's viability moving forward. We also talk about the LBRY blockchain itself, its potential future scaling challenges, and why the token will still be in demand no matter what happens.

How Did Bitcoin's Clunky User Experience Get the Way It Is?
Anyone who has actually used Bitcoin recently knows that the user experience for the average user isn't so great: transactions can take a long time, fees are crazy, addresses are confusing, and plenty of network disruptions can happen. But how did it actually get this way, and why is it that way? I break down the real technical limitations that lead to this end result, as well as the design choices, both politically-motivated an otherwise, that led to this current state of affairs.

Why You Need Explicit Governance Mechanisms in Cryptocurrency
As a decentralized system, any cryptocurrency or blockchain project worth its salt is without masters telling it what it can and can't do. But how do you decide on things when you need to? The answer is decentralized governance. Nakamoto Consensus, or how proof-of-work mining chains come together, was initially thought to be enough in this regard, but I'm here to show you why it isn't anymore, and what major functions of governance you need that aren't provided.

Why Is Cryptocurrency Journalism So Bad?
Why is news coverage and journalism in the cryptocurrency and blockchain industry just so shoddy these days? Well, for several reasons, not least of all is just how new the industry itself is, but also because journalism as a whole needs a major overhaul in order to survive and thrive in the new era. How can we fix this important yet dying industry? I have no concrete answers, but some ideas. Donate - Sponsors Thank you so much for listening!

Josiah Spackman, a.k.a. DGB_Chilling, comes on the podcast to discuss the particulars of proof-of-work mining, the various types of mining algorithms, with the drawbacks and benefits of each approach, in the context of recent 51% attacks. We go into just how fragile the security models are behind most prominent cryptocurrencies, particularly those which are purely GPU-mined or are not the dominant chain on their selected hashing algorithm. Finally, we go into DigiByte's multi-algorithm mining system and ask some tough questions about what happens in the worst case scenario. Donate - Sponsors Thank you so much for listening!

How to Solve LBRY’s Problem of People Not Using the Token
LBRY and it's associated apps has seen a tremendous increase in user base over the past few years, with mainstream adoption on the horizon.

Dr. Darren Tapp, blockchain scaling researcher for Arizona State University, comes on the podcast to break down scaling research for blockchains, illuminating the limitations of growing a network on-chain, rather than off-chain through methods such as the Lightning Network on Bitcoin. We go through current research and how far scaling has proven to be able to go, as well as theory on how far it might be able to go in the future. Finally, we delve into what makes Dash unique in its rapid security model, and how well its special features, including the upcoming Dash Platform, can scale along with the regular Bitcoin-like blockchain.

Why Is Utility Not Always Valued in Cryptocurrency?
Like any technology or business, cryptocurrencies are supposed to be useful. The thought is, if something solves real-world problems for people cheaply and efficiently, the market will reward the technology by valuing it in the market over competitors which are objectively less useful. It doesn't always seem to turn out this way however, with some of the best projects buried at the bottom of market captialization charts, while inferior competitors are at the top. Or maybe, is there something we're missing? I'm breaking down why it actually makes sense that your favorite cryptocurrency isn't valued higher. Donate - Sponsors Thank you so much for listening!

Scott Cunningham of Crypto & Things comes on the podcast to talk about the latest happenings in the cryptocurrency and blockchain world including recent attempts by US regulators to both regulate the issuance of stablecoins and ban self-hosted wallets, as well as LBRY's rise to prominence with wide coverage and a nice price bump.

Alex Agut of HandCash on PayMail, Usernames in Cryptocurrency, and Decentralization
Alex Agut of HandCash comes on the podcast to talk about HandCash's username setup, as well as PayMail, the protocol running on Bitcoin SV that allows users to transact to each other similar to the way email operates. We go over the way both setups operate, where data is stored, who controls it, who can use it, and, most importantly, who can shut down and censor people they don't like, and what a user can do about it.

How Dash Decentralized Autonomous Organization Governance Votes Turn Out
Recently, the Dash DAO (decentralized autonomous organization) completed another important governance vote between two proposals seeking alternate ways of improving its self-funding treasury system. In the end, the proposal by the main development team won, but by looking back and comparing past votes, we can see how the network doesn't simply vote to validate the requests of the main developers, but rather they make decisions based on a completely rational set of requirements, which doesn't always favor the Core Team. Moreover, we can learn a lot on how other cryptocurrency and blockchain governance systems might shake out based on their incentive systems. Extended version exclusive to the audio only podcast!
