(New Prediction Andreas M. Antonopoulos) The Internet of Money:The Future Bitcoin -Five Years Later
 
39:33
In this talk, Andreas reflects on all the exhilarating and terrifying moments of the last five years in Bitcoin, especially the price bubble of 2017. But he also reminds people who have come for the price that they should stay for the principles. This keynote talk happened during the epic one-night only extravaganza at the historic Music Box Theater in Chicago on April 25th, 2018. The main event, emceed by Pamela Morgan, was a live recording of the 5-year anniversary episode of the Let’s Talk Bitcoin Podcast. All four hosts Adam B. Levine, Stephanie Murphy, Jonathan Mohan, and Andreas M. Antonopoulos were together on-stage for the first time ever. The hour-long episode included the hosts discussing some of their favorite memories over the past five years, what’s happening now, and of course, they encouraged some audience participation. The show was recorded and made available as a podcast on the LTB network.

If you want to help me produce more high-quality episodes like this one you can send bitcoin 1gnjsmU3TzWF1LXNFrm3egYYuh3ZJrJ7F See my original article here: http://www.singularityweblog.com/andreas-antonopoulos-on-bitcoin/ Andreas Antonopoulos is arguably the face of bitcoin because he is probably the most prolific interviewee as well as the most publicly recognized expert in the field of crypto-currency. To top it off, Andreas is extremely eloquent, has an impressively broad spectrum of knowledge and is an admitted disruptarian. I have been receiving numerous requests to interview him on Singularity 1 on 1 and was very happy to finally have the opportunity to do so during the recent Bitcoin Expo 2014. During our 85 min conversation with Andreas Antonopoulos we cover a very wide variety of topics such as: the very first time he heard of bitcoin and his instant dismissal as "nerd money"; Satoshi Nakamoto's whitepaper and the monumental impact it had on Andreas; what is bitcoin and how it solves the technical problems of past crypto-currencies; decentralizing trust, money and the consequent revolutionary changes; deflation, inflation and the ability to divide a bitcoin into 100 million Satoshis; money for AI; proof of work and "mining" of coins; why trying to shut down bitcoin is like trying to shut down the internet; the blockchain security, anonymity, transparency and implications thereof; Charlie Stross' criticisms; libertarians, disruptarians and money neutrality; whether bitcoin is the singularity of money...

Bitcoin Q&A: Why Bitcoin is the poison pill of global finance - The Internet of Money
 
05:08
In this talk, Andreas looks at scaling as an ongoing process. Using the example of the Internet which has "failed to scale, gracefully for 25 years", Andreas discusses the scaling debate and looks at how bitcoin will scale over the next several years. Keywords/phrases: Why banks can't adopt Bitcoin or implement secure blockchains. Bitcoin is the poison pill of global finance. Banks accepted and sometimes even lobbied for a regulatory system to stall competition and now they're now trapped in it. We are building the internet of money - they are building the Microsoft frontpage of money.

Bitcoin Q&A: The internet will eat your business

Performance issues are an engineering optimisation task. The history the Internet swallowing industries. Lightning Network outpacing innovation of VISA. Don't hire a blockchain consultant -- ask people from the music, movie, or phone industry when they realised the Internet was going to eat their business, what they did to try to stop it, and what they would do differently now. If you are staking the survival of your business on "the engineers who built the Internet can't figure this out," you're in trouble.

Bitcoin Q&A: Do "crypto-banks" threaten hard money?
 
04:44
Do custodial "crypto-banks" and systems threaten bitcoin's potential as hard money, and the financial stability of nations? Being a banker, having a banking license, or being a financial regulator makes you a great thief. Can blockchains change governance in governments? People are misusing the term "blockchain" to mean "database," and fundamentally their business models are not about decentralisation. The problems in democracy have more to do with voter disenfranchisement and apathy about the blue vs. red Goldman Sachs.

Bitcoin Q&A: Bitcoin vs. blockchain
 
04:27
What is the difference between Bitcoin and "blockchain"? Blockchains are only one of the foundational technologies. In an attempt to co-opt the interest around Bitcoin, companies and governments are trying to circle the square by creating centralised and permissioned versions while entirely missing the point: decentralization.

The Stories We Tell About Money
 
47:28
In this talk, Andreas recounts the history of Bitcoin and what it represents, building upon all the stories we've been told over the centuries about what "money" is, how we perceive its value, and why the old answers have changed as we adjust to this new world of digital peer-to-peer currencies. He also discusses global threats to economic stability and trust in the financial system, including demonetisation and wealth destruction through inflation.

Bitcoin's Origins and the Genesis Blockade
 
33:50
In this talk, Andreas recounts the origins of Bitcoin, the meaning of the message embedded forever in its genesis block, and how we figured out who the banks truly serve when there was no other choice. He also speaks about what happens when money stops working, why censorship resistance was one of Bitcoin's most valuable characteristics from the start, and what possibilities lay in store with a global, voluntary financial system.

Andreas M. Antonopoulos | What is Happening With Bitcoin? The Price Of Losing Privacy
 
07:17
Privacy is described as a fundamental right now in many countries, but why is financial privacy so hard? How do we make it easier for more people to afford privacy? Does censorship-resistance matter without privacy? What is the historical context informing the demand for privacy and fear of its erosion? Correction: The quote from Mao Zedong (3:10) is actually "let a hundred flowers bloom" as part of the Hundred Flowers Campaign.

Bitcoin Q&A: Borderless money
 
07:30
Are cryptocurrencies subject to the same border restrictions as foreign currency and cash? Where are bitcoins "located"? What happens when money is data? What are the geopolitical implications of borderless money? Bitcoins 'live' on the blockchain, on a global network, in "the cloud." When you make a transaction, bitcoin is not transmitted anywhere; it simply changes ownership. National "flag" money went from being a store of value, medium of exchange, and unit of account into a system-of-control for playing political games. It removes the power of central banks to take entire populations hostage under hyperinflation experiments. Therefore the framework of money transmission laws is obsolete and fatally undermined. This is part of a talk which took place at Pebble Beach for the Capgemini CXO Forum on November 1-3rd 2017 in Monterey, California.

Bitcoin Q&A: Inflation and debt systems
 
12:04
How do you see the roles of debt and inflation changing in society with the advent of cryptocurrencies? Does Bitcoin have the best monetary policy? Bitcoin and many other cryptocurrencies are not debt instruments, whereas most of the popular, state-run forms of currency today are. You can't do fractional reserve banking or issue debt with bitcoin. Airdrops / fork coins are a form of supply inflation. How do you explain the different approaches to cryptocurrencies from China and Japan? The first question is from the patron-only live Q&A which took place on January 27th 2018. The second question is from the first monthly live Patreon Q&A session on November 27th, 2017. The third question is from the patron-only live Q&A which took place on February 24th 2018.

Bitcoin: Where the Laws of Mathematics Prevail
 
23:48
In this talk, Andreas speaks about Bitcoin as a system of commerce that is the culmination of decades of research into cryptography and digital currencies, and how it achieves digital scarcity through proof-of-work and decentralized consensus. He argues that Bitcoin is powerful because it is where the laws of mathematics prevail to deliver robust security, financial autonomy, and censorship resistance.

Bitcoin Q&A: Energy consumption
 
05:51
Is the "energy consumption" in mining a problem? Mining is a business of arbitrage for the cheapest sources of electricity. Proof-of-work mining is contributing to massive investment and subsidy in renewables / alternative energy and efficiency improvements in processing. It is driving the decentralization of energy production. "Consumption" in Bitcoin is easy to criticize because it is obvious, whereas the hidden externalities of the traditional financial system are massive.

Bitcoin Q&A: From barter to abstract money
 
07:12
Centrally controlled currencies were not the norm for most of human history, and in many small-scale human societies today it is still not the norm. Will people in more barter-based, technologically illiterate economies be able to adopt cryptocurrencies like bitcoin? What does the type of money people use say about their level of social organisation? Why are abstract forms of money the most useful for trade on large scales?

Bitcoin Q&A: Lightning Network scaling

What is the capacity difference between utilizing second layers, like the Lightning Network, and block size increases? Are hard forks harder to execute with the existence of second layers? BCH supporters say that the Lightning Network will not be able to scale, remain decentralised, or be secure. Is that true? How surmountable are each of these challenges? What are the security risks of running a Lightning node, and how many channels should each node open? Why are routing algorithms not part of the BOLT standards?

Advanced Bitcoin Scripting -- Part 1: Transactions & Multisig
 
59:58
This is the first part of a more technical talk where Andreas explores Bitcoin script, with examples from the 2nd edition of Mastering Bitcoin, focusing on the use of conditional statements, flow control, guard clauses and time locks. The examples will include advanced multi-signature scripts, hash time lock contracts and asymmetric revocable commitments. Then he answers questions about Bitcoin's quirky bugs, where Bitcoin differs from Ethereum at a scripting level, how SegWit works, how consensus rules change, and whether Bitcoin is more than just a currency.

Bitcoin Q&A: The value of proof-of-work
 
14:30
Can a blockchain exist without miners, proof-of-work, or blocks? What are the implications for security, trustlessness, and decentralisation? Not all distributed ledgers are blockchains. What is the influence of alternative energy generation on mining in proof-of-work cryptocurrencies? Should we use alternative algorithms that generate "useful work" in addition to mining cryptocurrencies? The hard promises that Bitcoin provides are valuable and useful in themselves. What is the difference between proof-of-work and proof-of-stake? Note: These sessions were recorded live using Google Hangouts. The audio and video may be slightly out of sync at some points. These questions are from the MOOC sessions 7.2 and 8.2, covering the Byzantine Generals' Problem, which took place on February 26th 2017 and September 15th 2017 respectively.

"Blockchain" or Bitcoin: Understanding the differences
 
37:15
In this talk, Andreas explores the rise of the term "blockchain" as a counterweight to bitcoin. The term blockchain does not provide a definition, as it has been diluted to be meaningless. Saying "blockchain" simply invites questions, such as "what is the consensus algorithm". Meanwhile, bitcoin continues to offer an alternative to the traditional financial system. Andreas looks at the value of private ledgers, which he sees as having a small impact on finance, versus open, global and accessible payment and currency systems such as bitcoin which he sees as fostering a global revolution in finance and access to financial tools.

Bitcoin Q&A: Reflections on the last five years
 
07:12
What is the most significant thing you've changed your mind on with respect to cryptocurrencies in the last five years? Making predictions with certainty in a new and fast-paced industry; under-estimating the resilience of Bitcoin; the social attack / argument surface. If you were to make one change to Bitcoin, what would it be? I would like to see more implementations of privacy features, which is already happening. However, no one person gets to make changes to Bitcoin. There is not much else I would change in the original design; I think it would be hubris even for me to say I can do it better. There has been a "next Bitcoin" that fixed supposed fatal flaws ever year since the beginning of Bitcoin, but none have superseded its design choices aimed at security, censorship resistance, and decentralisation. (And no, market capitalisation is not a great measurement for comparison.) This is a question from the patron-only live Q&A which took place on February 24th 2018.

Bitcoin Q&A: Net Neutrality and open blockchains
 
04:32
How does Net Neutrality impact Bitcoin and other open blockchains? How could we combat caps to certain services? Broadband providers currently operate in a licensed cartel environment, not a free market. Cryptocurrencies could change how we fund the infrastructure of the internet itself.

Bitcoin Q&A: Job opportunities with cryptocurrencies
 
07:31
Job opportunities provided by the Bitcoin ecosystem, beyond software development. When you change one of the most fundamental technologies (money), anything and everything that is touched by it will be affected.The user composition of the Bitcoin community is becoming more diverse and the mainstream consciousness is changing over time. There are dentists, hairdressers, and cab drivers who have now heard of Bitcoin. We really need graphic designers, UX/UI designers, and customer service people to contribute. We need accountants who are willing to learn to understand this new form of money. Artists can now bypass the intermediaries and connect directly to their audience.

Bitcoin Q&A: Fungibility, privacy, anonymity
 
12:29
Is Bitcoin as anonymous as cash? Cash is still more anonymous than Bitcoin, which is pseudonymous. However, Bitcoin will become more anonymous and there are a number of other related cryptocurrencies which you can move in and out of to increase your privacy under certain conditions. The conference on Bitcoin scaling in Milan addressed strengthening privacy and fungibility. I'm a strong believer in financial privacy. Fungibility in Bitcoin, creating blacklists are expensive, common laws "receiving stolen property" and fungibility of fiat. Discount rates, bad money chasing out good money. Gresham's law in India. Human graphs, six degrees of Kevin Bacon. How easily bitcoins are tainted. Lightning Network. The trade-offs for privacy and anonymity. Privacy is inefficient and costly, it takes commitment and sacrifice to implement, but being able to serve that community is very important. Some people think that trade-off is one worth paying because it pays back in the currency of freedom, and there are many places in the world where the trade-off is very easy. You never really appreciate freedom until you don't have it; for most people, privacy and freedom will not be issues until they start feeling their loss, and by that time it's usually too late. The first question is part of a talk which took place on October 19th 2016 at the Bitcoin Wednesday Meetup in Amsterdam, Netherlands: https://www.meetup.com/BitcoinWednesday/events/234498117/ Watch the full talk here: https://youtu.be/P6F1vTG_hA0 The second question is from a talk which took place at the Silicon Valley Bitcoin meetup on April 11th 2017 at the Plug and Play Tech Center (@PlugandPlayTC) in Sunnyvale, California: https://www.meetup.com/Silicon-Valley-Bitcoin-Users/events/233760417/ Watch the full talk here: https://youtu.be/i_wOEL6dprg The third question is from a talk which took place during the 3rd Hackers Congress at Paralelní Polis (30th of September - 2nd of October) in Prague. #HCPP16 Watch the full talk here: https://youtu.be/n2yD1PSWBU0 RELATED: How is fungibility tied to privacy? - https://youtu.be/VuI-8EwqIS8 How do we protect privacy when bitcoin is traceable? - https://youtu.be/PaNDHsix8cs Privacy, Identity, Surveillance and Money - https://youtu.be/Vcvl5piGlYg Why we should resist financial surveillance - https://youtu.be/KBFedmrDTQw The future of digital money - Open Blockchains or Dystopia? - https://youtu.be/Z3oArEyen6M Why KYC is dangerous - Microviolations of Privacy As Payment - https://youtu.be/rwF7nMWUjBs The Lightning Network - https://youtu.be/vPnO9ExJ50A Does MimbleWimble enhance privacy? - https://youtu.be/paOAgR3LuGI Zcash in the cryptocurrency ecosystem - https://youtu.be/j8ILYfIm_G0 Who is Satoshi Nakamoto? - https://youtu.be/1iEv-gUZNx4 Andreas M.
