Bitcoin news for the week of May 1st with your hosts @theonevortex @miketwenty1 @AnselLindner @sharkybit @desantis and special guest @dieguito!
-Thanks to everyone who signed up for my consulting service so far. I’ve been having a great time speaking about bitcoin to you in a 1 on 1 personal setting.
First Half Topics:
-Bitcoin price – Bitcoin is on another tear taking the world by
storm with it’s recent price rise breaking new ATHs yet again,
passing up gold, yet again. What do we think is causing this, how
long can it last, and where are we going from here?
-The scammer & fraudster Craig Wright recently attempted to step back into the public eye with the announcement of his new company nchain which claims to be a competitor to the Bitcoin Core implementation. With people like Jon Matonis, Gavin Andresen and Jeff Garzik all saying it’s a good idea, what do we think about nchain and it’s future?
-After a back and fourth on twitter with Andrew Desantis & Jihan Wu, Wu replied back saying bitmain may likely accept code to stop ASICBoost. Is this a sign of bitcoin game theory at work, forcing Jihan to finally realize what the market wants and is this the next step towards Jihan accepting segwit?
Second Half with Special Guest:
-RSK was created to make smart contracts more accessible to bitcoin, has it done this and is RSK compatible with any other chains?
-What makes RSK different/better than other platforms like ethereum?
-Can you name some good examples of ideas that RSK makes possible that otherwise would’nt able to be developed with just bitcoin?
-How far away are you guys from launching on mainnet?
