WBD271 - Becoming a Bitcoin Core Developer with Amiti Uttarwar
Due to the decentralised nature of Bitcoin, committing to becoming a full-time core developer comes with challenges. While the Bitcoin network is worth over $200 billion, there is no central development fund to ensure that developers are working full time on the protocol. While there are numerous independent contributors, many developers rely on support from a growing number of companies such as Chaincode Labs, Blockstream, Lightning Labs and a handful of others who fund work on the protocol. In this interview, I talk to Bitcoin Core Developer Amiti Uttarwar. We discuss her residency at Chaincode Labs, contributing to Bitcoin Core, working on open source projects and the blacklist controversy.

Unhashed Podcast - White Walkers & Polite DeFi Thieves
On this episode of the Unhashed Podcast, Colin, Mario, and Bryan discuss the advent of KYC on mined bitcoin transactions by BlockSeer and whether this presents the beginnings of a threat to bitcoin. We also enjoy the strangely cordial discussion between DeFi hackers and a "nurse" that they stole funds from. Meanwhile, Cred deals with liabilities of...well, they're not sure how much, but it's a LOT. On the brighter side of things, mining pool Poolin spearheads a miner-backed effort to support Taproot activation, hopefully an indication of a smoother update than experienced with SegWit.
