    Episode 72: Bitcoin and American Values, with Nic Carter

    Episode 72: Bitcoin and American Values, with Nic Carter

    On this episode of BlockChannel, McKie, Dee and Dr. Petty have an astute conversation with Nic Carter, GP of Castle Island Ventures and Twitter renowned Bitcoin enthusiast. We like the way Nic thinks about dollarization, governance, and how they coincide with certain aspects of bitcoin, such as its distribution, to better understand its tech and where its going in the future. This episode is a tad longer than usual, but we think you'll enjoy the lack of brevity in this one.

    Episode 71: Crossing the River of Ethereum Governance, with Hudson Jameson

    Episode 71: Crossing the River of Ethereum Governance, with Hudson Jameson

    On this episode of BlockChannel, McKie, Dee and Dr. Petty finally get a chance to sit with one of their favorite members of the Ethereum Foundation, Hudson Jameson. As one of the main managers of the EIP process as an active DevOps manager at the Ethereum Foundation, Hudson has a very high-touch role in managing and interpreting the emergence of developer consensus around the Ethereum protocol. Governance can be a complex topic, and one that is often misunderstood since decentralized protocols are self-sustaining systems -- but it's incredibly important to understand how decisions and improvements are made in these trust-less ecosystems. Come dive in with us and learn more about how Ethereum get its updates from Hudson himself.

    Episode 69: The Evolution of Mix Tapes, with Audius

    On this episode of BlockChannel, McKie, Dr. Petty and Dee finally may have found someone who can bring crypto + music & audio to the masses. We're joined by Roneil Rumburg, CEO of Audius, and an all around incredibly nice guy. He's sharp: he understands Ethereum; he built on Bitcoin back in the day; and is familiar with the music industry. His team realizes the barriers that stand between Audius, and mass adoption - and we think he just might succeed. We discuss the platform, his vision for the future, and have some laughs along the way.

    Episode 68: The Future of Streaming Value, with Sablier

    Episode 68: The Future of Streaming Value, with Sablier

    On this episode of BlockChannel, McKie, Dr. Petty and Dee are back with a new season, with fresh new faces and guests. To start off this season, we spoke to Paul Berg, CEO and Co-Founder of Sablier Finance. Many have sought to scale Ethereum transactions off-chain, with the use of Roll-ups/Plasma/State Channels, but Paul's team took a different approach. They're building an on-chain protocol for real-time payments; one that's lean, extendable, and a great PoC into how the future of real-time finance will work going forward. Join this enlightening discussion into his design decisions, and why he thinks Sablier is going to revolutionize payments by allowing you to stream digitized value of any form.
