Banking on Bitcoin with Max Carjuzaa
This week for the Bitcoin Magazine podcast, host Christian Keroles sits down with Max Carjuzaa the cofounder and ceo of Money on Chain. Money on Chain is a fascinating new trustless application built on the RSK side chain. RSK is a sidechain that pegs 1 to 1 with Bitcoin and allows users to leverage a turing complete computing environment. Money on Chain is part of the emerging decentralized finance and banking movement coming to bitcoin in a more native way. Money on Chain allows users to leverage their bitcoin collateral to mint dollar backed tokens as well as their B2X token that enables the users earn a 2x leveraged bitcoin position all with minimized trust on the RSK sidechain.
Carjuzaa explained the story behind money on chain and how he and his team conceived of the idea and leveraged RSK and learning from other ecosystems to build the MoC system in the most Bitcoin native way possible. Money on Chain is built to enable bitcoiners to express short and long sentiments on Bitcoin while also creating a dollar synthetic token that is permissionless and censorship resistant. Carjuzaa explains how RSK and Money on chain are thriving in Latin America where financial services and fiat currency are much worse and there is a substantial need for alternative banking solutions.

Optimizing Bitcoin with Gloria Zhao
This week for the Bitcoin Magazine podcast, host Christian Keroles sat down with young Bitcoin developer Gloria Zhao to discuss her story and contributions to Bitcoin core. Gloria grew up in the bay area and led the elite Blockchain at Berkeley group at UC Berkeley. Gloria discusses the misaligned incentives for top college developers pulling them toward altcoin and defi projects. Gloria stated that she needed to be in tune with herself and her motivations in order to see Bitcoin Core as a viable and exciting career path.
Gloria's talent was quickly discovered by top Bitcoin contributors and she started as the first fellow of nonprofit Bitcoin development organization, Brink Bitcoin. Gloria is currently working on the very important and thankless work improving the p2p layer between nodes. Her specific projects are called Package Mempool Acceptance. P2P development is incredibly stressful because it is how nodes talk to each other and there is massive opportunity for an attack on Bitcoin.
We cover the following topics:
Gloria's Bitcoin story
Experience at Cal and Blockchain at Berkeley
Bitcoin v blockchain in education
What is it like learning the technical side of Bitcoin
Advice to young aspiring bitcoin devs
what is package accept or package relay
Gloria's most profound lesson form learning the technical side of Bitcoin
