    Douglas Bakkum: Building Bitcoin Hardware Wallets to Empower Individuals

    Douglas Bakkum: Building Bitcoin Hardware Wallets to Empower Individuals

    My guest is Douglas Bakkum. He is the Co-Founder and CEO of the Swiss hardware wallet manufacturer Shift Crypto. Douglas holds a Phd in neuroscience and shifted his career from starting a scientific research lab in academia to building a hardware wallet manufacturer at a time, when no hardware wallets existed on the market. Douglas saw a problem and the need for a solution and started the company together with bitcoin core maintainer Jonas Schnelli in 2015.

    Shift Crypto is one of my sponsors, and after this conversation I have to say I am even more impressed with their work. The BitBox02 has some additional features that set it apart from the other hardware wallets in the market. Like the dual-chip approach. I did not know how that works before and as I want to have a general understanding of the concepts, his explanations strengthened my trust in this new technology even more.

    Topics:

    Robotics and artificial intelligence
    Parallels between academia and the start-up world
    Neuroscience, the brain and artificial intelligence
    Stress and routines to stay stable
    Launching SHIFT Crypto
    Trusting new technologies
    Bitcoin self-reliance, privacy and freedom
    How SHIFT handles user-data
    Gaining privacy with your hardware wallet
    Apple as tollgate
    What is more secure: using a hardware wallet on the desktop or on a mobile?
    How are hardware wallets more secure than software wallets?
    Paper wallets
    What is the dual-chip approach of the BitBox02 and how does it compare with Trezor and Ledger?
    What he would put on a giant ad on social media

    Liam Ball - Maui: Bitcoin Is Truth

    Liam Ball - Maui: Bitcoin Is Truth

    Today I am talking with Liam Ball a real estate broker on Maui, who tells us his story of how he got into Bitcoin, why it is interesting to him, the parallels of Bitcoin to his personal journey and also my journey, his real life use cases with Bitcoin and why Bitcoin is real.

    Bitcoin can allow person to person generosity over the entire planet. I think that’s an incredible thing. You’re taking these charitable organizations out of the middle and you’re just saying, I feel like being generous, here’s somebody who needs something and in 10 minutes they have it and it’s going right there. I think that’s amazing. – Liam Ball

    I do like some of the the ethical changes or ideological changes that one tends to feel when you dive into the Bitcoin space. Things like responsibility and not entrusting third parties or governments. I like that aspect of encouraging humans to take responsibility for their situations in a self sovereign way but also in a community way. I think at the community level, where you live and helping people around you is really the best way to offer that kind of help. – Liam Ball

    Topics:

    Bitcoin and Buddhism
    Being a Bitcoiner and coming out of the closet
    Use cases: supporting HIV outreach team for sex workers in Uganda
    paying rent for a friends mom in Venezuela
    Bitcoin is like property title
    Learning about Bitcoin with podcasts

He does not own or hold any Fiat currency like Euros or US Dollars. We will talk about his motivation for doing so, how his wife and children deal with it, why he is using different identities, what LSD has to do with it, his Silkroad experiences, if he gets paid in Bitcoin and much more....

    "2010, that's very early in the Bitcoin world, I discovered Bitcoin on a mailing list. It was probably one of the cypherpunk mailing lists, I downloaded it, I played with it, I mined some Bitcoin as far as I recall, I mined four blocks and then I made, what was probably the silliest mistake of my life, I said this isn't as interesting as "City at Home" so I deleted it. I thought why use my computing power to create these virtual coins I've got two hundred of them already [Laughter]." - Dale Bewan

    Guy Swann: Bitcoin A Revolution With Historical Impact

    Guy Swann: Bitcoin A Revolution With Historical Impact

    Guy Swann is the host of the Bitcoin Audible podcast, where he is reading Bitcoin articles and essays by different authors. In 2011 Guy Swann found out about Bitcoin. Back then he used money he did not have to buy Bitcoin, just to watch it loosing it’s value in the following bear market. For him, this was not the moment for an exit, it was the moment, when he really started to investigate and learn what Bitcoin is.

    Topics:

    Why he started his podcast Bitcoin Audible
    His Bitcoin story
    The real value proposition of Bitcoin
    Digital scarcity
    The Bitcoin Reformation by Tuur Demeester
    Lightning as a global payments network
    The Bitcoin renaissance
    The agricultural revolution
    From decentralization to monopolies back to decentralization
    Bitcoin will change internet business models
    Coping with bull and bear markets
    What he would put inside an ad
    Filtering through Bitcoin information

    I truly think that what we saw as changes from the printing press and the oil revolution may very well be an understatement of the potential impact that Bitcoin could have on the world when you’re looking out 30 to 50 years. And like you said earlier, it’s about having patience because we need to make sure that we don’t lose what makes this thing so revolutionary. – Guy Swann

    Now that we finally have real value in the digital space and we can build open source permissionless payment systems and contract systems and ownership systems on top of this, I think it is going to change all of the models that we’re used to on the internet and open up access to so many things that just didn’t quite work before. – Guy Swann
