    Carla Kirk-Cohen: Bitcoin Is the Ability to Take Back Control Over Your Financial Situation

    Today's guest is Carla Kirk-Cohen she is a developer at Lightning Labs and is living in Cape Town in South Africa. Carla is building infrastructure around lightning nodes that makes it easier for people to run their own nodes at home.

    "I was really drawn to the security model of Bitcoin, really interested and thinking, oh, this can't possibly work. There must be some way that it breaks. And then going back and learning a bit more and realizing how incredible the entire system actually is. For me Bitcoin is really about self determination. I think the ability to take back control over your financial situation is a really powerful thing and it's a really interesting thing because it's something that's never been possible until Bitcoin existed." - Carla Kirk-Cohen

    "That 21 million that will never change and is finite really does ensure value of Bitcoin through scarcity and that I think is the most important feature and just fundamental to the entire system." - Carla Kirk-Cohen

    Our topics:
    Her career in the Bitcoin space
    What Bitcoin means to her
    The 21 million hard cap
    The Lightning Network
    Lightning infrastructure projects
    Loop, Faraday, Multipath payments
    Privacy in the Lightning Network
    The Bitcoin community in South Africa
    Lightning Wallets
    How to become a Bitcoin and Lightning developer

    Leo Wandersleb: Bitcoin Wallet Security to Avoid Exit Scams

    Leo Wandersleb: Bitcoin Wallet Security to Avoid Exit Scams

    Our topic today is all about Bitcoin wallets and their security. I am talking with Leo Wandersleb a german developer living in Chile, who is the founder of a project called Wallet Scrutiny. The goal of his project is to avoid exit scams through the verifiability of the wallet source code.

    "The goal of Wallet Scrutiny is to avoid exit scams and to avoid major flaws that would make all the users of a certain wallet vulnerable to some back doors that get injected by the provider or by somebody who has a means to add an attack through maybe some libraries that are used in that wallet, et cetera." - Leo Wandersleb

    Why he started Wallet Scrutiny
    His take on Bitcoin as the major cryptocurrency
    How bitcoin wallets are built
    The importance of a verifiable source code
    Anonymity and transparency in respect to security
    Why hardware wallets are the most secure wallets
    Bitcoin fee estimation

    Tuur Demeester: The Bitcoin Reformation in Times of COVID-19

    Tuur Demeester: The Bitcoin Reformation in Times of COVID-19

    Today I am talking with Tuur Demeester, who recommended Bitcoin as an investment to his readers at $5 back in 2012. I would say Tuur is a philosopher with a greater perspective and an historical approach to today's developments. We discuss his findings in his paper "The Bitcoin Reformation". Published that at the end of 2019 he is drawing comparisons between the Dutch reformation in the 16th century and the emergence of Bitcoin in this century. This bring us to discuss COVID 19 and Tuur's thoughts about the impact of this crisis on the Bitcoin reformation.

    Topics:
    The similarities between the Dutch reformation and Bitcoin
    Who is profiting from the current financial system
    The Catholic church and Central Banks as rent-seeking monopolies
    Differences between the schools of Keynes and Austrian Economics
    Bitcoin lending
    Attacks on Bitcoin, Bitcoin Cash
    Money as a language
    The growing risk of hyperinflation
    Interest rate is the price of money
    His take on liquid and accessible assets in the future

    Part 6: The Future of Bitcoin Is Big in Africa – With Alakanani Itireleng

    Part 6: The Future of Bitcoin Is Big in Africa – With Alakanani Itireleng

    In this episode I talk with Alakanani Itireleng, who founded the Satoshicentre in Botswana in 2014 and single-handedly built a growing Bitcoin community. She is the heart and center of Bitcoin education there, even the government is relying on her consultancy. We recorded this interview in February 2020, only days before the Covid-19 lockdowns went into effect. Her greatest ambition, the organization of a Bitcoin conference in Southern Africa will not come true soon. If you like to support her work and the Satoshicentre - please do so, her Twitter handle is @bitcoinlady.
    If you have a question, feel free to go to https://bitcoinundco.com/en/africa6 and press the appropriate button and record your question.

    "Bitcoin is for everyone, Bitcoin is the currency of love." - Alakanani Itireleng

    We talk about:

    How her sons illness and death lead to the first meetup
    The internet as "white people's problem"
    The high unemployment rate in Botswana
    The cost of internet connections
    Ponzi schemes and how they are disturbing bitcoin adoption
    Bitcoin usecases and regulation in Botswana
    Exchanging the local currency Pula to Bitcoin
    African countries on the forefront of adoption
    Her opinion about Libra and Lightning
    Mobile Money in Botswana
    The Future of Bitcoin in Botswana

    This episode is sponsored by https://localbitcoins.com/ a person-to-person bitcoin trading site, Coinfinity and the Card Wallet https://www.cardwallet.com/anita, SHIFT Cryptosecurity, manufacturer of the hardware wallet BitBox02 https://shiftcrypto.ch/bitbox02/, The What Bitcoin Did podcast https://whatbitcoindid.com/ and many thanks to several unknown private donors, who sent me Satoshis over the Lightning Network.

    This special is edited by CoinDesk’s Podcasts Editor Adam B. Levine and published first on the CoinDesk Podcast Network. Thank you very much for supporting the Bitcoin in Africa series with your work.

    Thanks goes also out to stakwork.com - stakwork is a great project that brings bitcoin into the world through earning. One can do microjobs on stakwork, earning Satoshis and cash them out without even having an understanding about the lightning network or bitcoin. I think we need more projects like that to spread the usage of bitcoin around the world.

    Thank you also to GoTenna https://gotenna.com/, for donating several GoTenna devices to set up a mesh network in Zimbabwe and to Team Satoshi https://teamsatoshi.org/, the decentralized sports team for supporting my work.
