    Ledger Hack Revisited with Pascal Gauthier & Matt Johnson

    Ledger Hack Revisited with Pascal Gauthier & Matt Johnson

    “ It’s not data that we need, it’s not data that we want, and so the only reason why we are doing all of this and why it sounds complex is because we have these legal obligations everywhere in the world.”— Pascal Gauthier
    Location: RemotelyDate: Wednesday 14th AprilCompany: LedgerRole: CEO & CISO
    In July last year, Ledger was the victim of a data breach, with hackers gaining customer email addresses, phone numbers and physical addresses. Over 270,000 people were affected by the hack.
    Pascal Gauthier, CEO of Ledger, previously came onto the podcast to answer questions shortly after the hack. Since the interview, Ledger asked to sponsor the podcast, and one condition was that they come back on the show and answer listener questions.
    I believe it is vital to have a healthy and competitive marketplace for hardware wallets, firstly to give customers a choice and competition between the manufacturers pushes them to be better.
    Listeners of the podcast still have questions regarding the hack, so I asked the Ledger CEO and CISO Pascal Gauthier and Matt Johnson to come on the show and answer some more questions and explain the changes they have made internally.

    The Psychological Barrier of a $100k Bitcoin with Willy Woo

    The Psychological Barrier of a $100k Bitcoin with Willy Woo

    “You’re definitely a moron… if you sell in a bullrun and try to buy back lower, that doesn’t work.”— Willy Woo
    Location: RemotelyDate: Thursday 15th AprilCompany: HypersheetRole: Co-Founder
    Bitcoin has broken an all-time high again, rallying to over $64,000 this week, and it appears to be holding its ground with more new investors entering daily. 
    Willy explains how he uses models that rely on moving averages to observe the rising “natural price” of bitcoin and how they help him identify the degree to which it is above or below a specific natural range. If it goes up or down too quickly, for example, it might be a good strategy to use a little leverage to ride it back to a more locally appropriate price. 
    Managing risk is very important for traders, and Willy takes the time to explain how he uses various strategies to hedge his bets. He also clarified how I could manage my risk of not winning my bet with American HODL.
    In this episode, I talk to on-chain analyst and the co-founder of Hypersheet, Willy Woo. We discuss moving price targets, hedging my bet with American HODL, and some of the strategies and risks of trading.

    Bitcoin v The Banks with Simon Dixon & Bill Barhydt

    Bitcoin v The Banks with Simon Dixon & Bill Barhydt

    “I’m truly blessed to be able to be involved in the disruption of the entire financial system one product at a time, until eventually Peter can just say Fuck the Banks.”— Simon Dixon
    Location: RemotelyDate: Tuesday 13th AprilCompany: BankToTheFuture, AbraRole: Co-Founder, CEO
    The banking system is a regulated Ponzi scheme driven by leverage and debt with onerous rules and powerful gatekeepers. When you are in the system, you are a slave to it, and worse still, the banks can freeze your payments and shut down your accounts.
    Simon Dixon envisions a future where we aren’t beholden to deputized authoritarian institutions to move and store our money; he thinks we can achieve it by plugging decentralized and centralized systems together. And Bill Barhydt is helping build that future.
    While Bitcoin is a savings based economy that may help rid us from a world drowning in debt, there are still questions about how people with one foot in the old system, and another foot in the future, will make the transition while maintaining their privacy. While many promising solutions are in development, it’s not clear exactly how we will be borrowing, transacting, and securing our wealth.
    In this interview, I talk to Simon Dixon, the Co-Founder of BankToTheFuture and Abra CEO Bill Barhydt. We discuss the legacy banking system, the fight for privacy, and the future of banking in a bitcoin world.

    Bitcoin Rehab: BitcoinTINA Yells at Everyone with American HODL & BitcoinTINA

    Bitcoin Rehab: BitcoinTINA Yells at Everyone with American HODL & BitcoinTINA

    “This business of crashing, that’s only because we’ve had these stupid idiots who had too much bitcoin who thought they could play with this market, and they’re wrong; they can’t play with the market. Bitcoin is going to be ripped out of those sellers hands; they will never own bitcoin again, they will not be able to afford to own bitcoin, they will have less because they played dumb games.”— BitcoinTINA
    Location: RemotelyDate: Sunday 11th AprilCompany: N/ARole: N/A
    With bitcoin currently sat at ~$60,000 and looking likely to break its previous all-time highs, the bull market is in full swing. After a massive end to 2020 with no signs of slowing, analysts predict anything from $100k to $300k+ in 2021. Are we still in the early stages of this bull market?
    Typically, bitcoin has had clear 4-year market cycles based around the halving; however, some people think this time may differ. 
    In 2017, it was mainly a retail-driven bull market, with few institutions investing in bitcoin. Still, now with institutions following MicroStrategy’s move, the market has matured, and we have big money investors buying up every dip. So, is this enough to prevent us from ever seeing an 80% drawdown again? Are we amid a supercycle?
    In this interview, I talk to American HODL & BitcoinTINA. We discuss the current market conditions, if we are in a supercycle, and Hodl and I bet another bitcoin, this time on whether the price reaches $300k in 2021.

    COVID Lockdowns: One Year On with Zuby

    COVID Lockdowns: One Year On with Zuby

    “I do really, really hope that things sort of snap back and people quite quickly go to normal just as quickly as they fell into this weird sort of madness and totalitarianism, but I think that it’s a real fight.”— Zuby
    Location: RemotelyDate: Wednesday 7th AprilCompany: zubymusic.comRole: Rapper, Podcaster and Author
    With the emergence and rapid spread of COVID-19 in early 2020, governments worldwide opted to lockdown in an unprecedented move. After struggling to contain the spread of COVID and the deadliness and contagiousness relatively unknown, they argued that it was a temporary measure and a necessary step to take as they learned more about the virus.
    Now, one year on from the initial lockdowns and with vaccination programs well underway, many countries are on their way out of lockdown, but did the lockdowns work? And, was it a necessary reaction to the virus?
    In this interview, I talk to rapper, podcaster and author Zuby. We discuss the government's response to COVID, the economic and social impact of lockdowns, libertarianism, and the state's role.

    Bitcoin HODL FOMO with Brady Swenson

    Bitcoin HODL FOMO with Brady Swenson

    “Money is the pillar of civilisation, and our money is broken, its breaking down, its crumbling.”— Brady Swenson
    Location: RemotelyDate: Monday 5th AprilCompany: Swan BitcoinRole: Head of Education
    The current bitcoin bull market has been unlike any before. While retail traders have led previous rallies with speculators looking for short term gains vs fiat, this time, institutions are here and buying vast amounts of bitcoin, and many have no intention of selling.
    The macro conditions this time around are entirely different. Bitcoin investing is no longer a speculative bubble, rather a rational response to the debasement of fiat currencies at an accelerating rate. Investors are looking for a store of value to protect their money from losing purchasing power. 
    Bitcoin buyers and HODLers are not just looking at bitcoin as a way of making money, but truly seeing it for what it is, a hedge against inflation and the hardest money the world has ever known. 
    This is the Bitcoin Renaissance.
    In this interview, I talk to the Head of Education at Swan Bitcoin, Brady Swenson. We discuss the bitcoin bull market and HODL FOMO, the transitional period between fiat currency and bitcoin and how the future role of state and government will change.

WBD rocks!

The Bitcoin rabbit hole journey couldn’t have been better thanks to Pete McCormack and this fantastic podcast. After a few episodes listened you’ll have the sensation of being spending time with a long time friend with a lovely Bedford accent.
If you’re new to Bitcoin go to his beginner’s guide series, a fantastic resource.
Keep it up Pete!

hrablock ,

Great content

Just learned about btc a couple of months ago, and learning a lot about it, stumbled upon with this channel and its so cool, very laid back conversations and easy to understand. I don’t know much about the speakers because as I said I’m new in this world, but how they explain things and the topics they talk about are really interesting. I even send Peter a couple of emails about btc and he responded very quickly! Thanks for the podcast
Harrold R.
