BITVOLT: Podcast for Bitcoin Plebs

BITVOLT: Podcast for Bitcoin Plebs

By Nico
Real Talk with Bitcoin Industry leaders, developers, miners, CEOs, artists, entrepreneurs, traders and toxic plebs. Some of the most interesting stories i’ve encountered going down the Bitcoin rabbit hole all these years are from everyday Bitcoiners that are not well known, I decided to give those fellow plebs a voice.

(This podcast was initially called “CryptoKreamers” but since I only covered Bitcoin content I felt it would be appropriate to rebrand it to something that represented the content.)

BVP | #025: Building Hardware Wallets with Lixin Liu, CEO of @KeystoneWallet (Formerly Cobo Vault)
Join my conversation with Lixin Liu - CEO of Keystone and former Head of Hardware at Cobo. Lixin created the hardware wallet - Cobo Vault - allowing people to take possession of their Bitcoin. However, Cobo wanted to focus on the growth of their exchange system and get rid of their hardware wallet. Lixin bought out his side of the business and is now on a journey to grow his new hardware wallet - Keystone Wallet, with plans of making a BITCOIN-ONLY Wallet coming soon! Join us in talking about China’s Bitcoin regulations and why most people in China use exchanges rather than taking full possession of their coins. Lixin believes, unlike India, China will NOT ban Bitcoin. I had a great time talking to Lixin - a hardware genius - about his plans with Keystone and the growth of his hardware wallet. I hope you enjoyed the convo as much as I enjoyed recording it!

Join my chat with Richard Myers - founder of Global Mesh Labs, who has successfully created a mobile mesh network that does not rely on the internet and offers “… an anti-fragile, decentralized alternative that can extend connectivity to places centralized networks can’t.” Myers, a software engineer and programmer, took the leap of faith and left his 16-year job to jump onto the Bitcoin wagon. His interests in the philosophy of decentralization and individuality behind Bitcoin drove him to open Global Mesh Labs. Join us as we talk about number stations, mesh networks, ham radio, and the history of technology and Bitcoin. I hope you enjoyed the convo as much as I enjoyed recording it!

BVP | #022: Buying NON-KYC Bitcoin in Europe w/ @julian_liniger
I had a blast talking with Julian Liniger, CEO of Swiss application "Relai." As a former psychology major and MBA student, Julien worked as a banking consultant for many years. This made him realize how broken the financial system truly is, and that is why he "...came to bitcoin, a money that gives you freedom," says Julien. Being a former psychology student, he realized that for 90% of the population, Bitcoin is too hard to understand. Thats why he founded Relai, where they enable everyday people like you and me to buy Bitcoin. Ultimately, Relai hopes to be the world's most accessible Bitcoin investing app. I hope you enjoyed the convo as much as I enjoyed recording it!  Check Out the Relai App Below!  https://relai.ch Follow Julian Liniger to Find Out More! https://twitter.com/julian_liniger
