In this episode of the Bitcoin Magazine podcast, host Christian sits down with rising Bitcoin developer Ben Carman to discuss his cutting edge work in the Bitcoin Smart Contracting space as well as controversy and disputes Ben finds himself in as he trolls Bitcoin Twitter.
Ben and Christian first met far before Ben's rise to prominence int he Bitcoin community at the Bit Block Boom Conference in 2019. Since then, Ben has joined SuredBits as a leader in DLC technology. DLC's show promise as the smart contracting and oracle layer for the Bitcoin financial stack. Ben has since built Krystal Bull which is a wallet for hosting an oracle. Ben throws in his two cents on the Taproot activation discussion and educates CK about all of the benefits and features that Taproot enables.
Lastly we dive into a recent confrontation between Eric July and Ben. Eric is a prominent libertarian pendent who does not really recommend or educate his following on Bitcoin. Ben and other Bitcoin plebs joined Erics podcast to call out the fact that Eric and other libertarians that do not take action are LARPS and the fall out from that confrontation.
