The Anatomy of Satoshi’s Place with LightningK0ala [Episode 20]

I’m joined for episode 20 by LightningK0ala to talk about his creation, Satoshi’s Place, a collaborative drawing experiment powered by lightning payments. We discussed the software it’s running, the low-end hardware he’s using to process the lightning payments, and the API that has allowed some really creative interactions on the site. We also waxed philosophical about the value of games and comedy in stressful times. Full conversation available on Patreon
[*We also referenced the body parts drawn on Satoshi’s Place, so probably not an episode for younger audiences*]

What’s going on in Venezuela? [Episode 19]

Randy Brito, founder of BitcoinVenezuela.com, talked to me about what’s going on in Venezuela. We talked about the authoritarian regime, merchant adoption, getting people to understand what Bitcoin can do for them, the Petro and more. Randy also talked about the difference between the government sanctioned exchange rates and the real price on the street, and how developers need to consider this when making tools for other countries.

The right way to view (and buy) Bitcoin with Akin Fernandez [Episode 12]

In this episode I was joined by Akin Fernandez to talk about the correct way to think about Bitcoin and why incorrect thinking leads to a convoluted, invasive process for getting it. We also talked about his company Azteco, a new, consumer-driven, Bitcoin top-up service.
