Monero Talk broadcasts weekly conversations on YouTube (https://www.youtube.com/c/monerotalk) with topical guests to understand what the Monero cryptocurrency is today and what it hopes to become.
We strive to give birth to new Monero users by simply reporting on the facts in our search to answer the question--Is Monero the truest cryptocurrency of them all? In staying true to the Monero ethos, we aim to always be skeptical. While we are Monero Talk by name, and Monero devotees at heart, the intention of the show is to ultimately discover and support the one blockchain that is most aligned with the original cypherpunk and crypto-anarchist ideals that cryptocurrency was born from. And the one that is most likely to succeed at becoming true digital cash. So far, we believe Monero is the one.
Guests include:
The developers and researchers working on the open source core protocol and the cryptography behind it;
The people building the projects and infrastructure supporting the protocol;
Privacy advocates and people building privacy enhancing technologies;
Analysts and investors speculating on Monero's growth;
Journalists and pundits weighing in on Monero's place in the crypto-sphere; and
Respected (sometimes controversial) contributors and community members.
If you enjoyed the show & would like to support us, a donation of any size would be greatly appreciated and would mean so much!

    TODAY'S SHOW: Douglas Tuman was LIVE at MoneroKon24 in Prague and interviewed Sterlin Lujan - a crypto-anarchist and contributor to the Logos Project.


    Sterlin shares his background, including what led him to discover the ideas of anarchism and voluntaryism. He discusses his views on crypto-anarchism, the importance of privacy, and the potential for technologies like Monero to help people opt-out of state control.


    Sterlin is optimistic that tools like Monero can gradually erode the power of the state through non-violent resistance and counter-economies. He also talks about the Logos Project, which aims to develop decentralized infrastructure for network states and autonomous political formations.

    TODAY'S SHOW: Douglas Tuman was LIVE at the Libertarian National Convention with Chris Luchini, chairman of the New Mexico Libertarian Party.


    Chris shares his experience working with Phil Zimmerman on encrypted voice communication technology in the 1990s. He also shows his interest in exploring Monero's privacy features and algorithm - acknowledging the need for truly anonymous digital cash.


    They also discuss the traceability of Bitcoin and the potential for a nation-state to possibly crack Satoshi's key using supercomputers. Both agree on the need for privacy and anonymity in digital currencies like Monero.

UsrReview ,

We are talking about digital cash

Monero is freeze peach money.

JeffA5268 ,

No longer useful

This was a useful podcast a few years ago. They spend more time bashing Bitcoin than talking about Monero. The people on this podcast are obviously bitter about the non-store value of Monero. Go look elsewhere for useful information about Monero, like YouTube.

Shoeless Juan Jackson ,

Blissfully ignorant

My Tuman is a talented host of this podcast. He is, of course, devoted to the first mover in the privacy space…….Monero! That’s all fine, but he often has guests that he discusses the issues with and they either deceptively or blissfully ignorant that Pirate Chain ($ARRR) has the tech that he is looking for. For example, a recent guest and he discussed Monero and z-cash as if nothing else exists. All his disappointments with Monero are settled with the adoption of Pirate Chain. Wake up buddy!
