Show 41: Jameson Lopp - Cypherpunk, Bitcoin

By Crypto Voices

Show support appreciated: 35iDYDYqRdN2x6KGcpdV2W1Hy3AjGje9oL Matthew and Fernando interview Jameson Lopp, professional cypherpunk. We start asking Jameson 'what is Bitcoin?'. We explore some of his prior writings, and get his latest perspectives on difficult topics (in the world of Bitcoin) such as roadmaps, scaling, technical upgrades, and consensus. We take some time to unpack the idea of bugs in the code and the human factor involved in dealing with them if and when they surface (and preventing them). We explore his new non-custodial, cryptoasset key-storing service Casa, and some of the features and benefits he and his partners will offer. We discuss some economic and risk-topics surrounding Bitcoin and other cryptoassets (such as ICOs). We close with his latest (brief, more philosophical) thoughts on the risks Proof-of-Work and Proof-of-Stake.
