Show 36: Paul Puey - Edge Mobile Crypto Wallet & User Security
By Crypto Voices
Show support appreciated: 35iDYDYqRdN2x6KGcpdV2W1Hy3AjGje9oL Matthew and Fernando interview Paul Puey, founder and CEO of mobile blockchain wallet Edge. We discuss lots of security topics in Bitcoin and other crypto assets, specifically regarding the average user’s concerns. Paul details his history in tech and how we got into Bitcoin, as well as why he decided to found Edge (formerly known as Airbitz). We cover the current differences between the newly branded Edge wallet versus Airbitz, and the longer-term plans for the company under the Edge brand. We cover a good deal of time on the exchanges, how their business model differs from wallet providers, security versus utility versus risk, how they work together, fees, and some of the challenges of centralized entities (exchanges) in crypto versus more decentralized ones, such as client-side wallet providers. We discuss some of the technical, longer-term prospects for Edge, such as when and how multi-sig will be usable and easy for the average user (across crypto assets, not just in Bitcoin). Also, will the future of crypto use wallets? We further do some speculating on more philosophical questions, such as will all bitcoin in the world eventually be lost (or stolen)? Paul has some cautious views on the Lightning Network, which tandems with their more crypto-agnostic efforts and company direction.
