    Bitcoin Blockspace As Electrical Markets With Leo Zhang

    Bitcoin Blockspace As Electrical Markets With Leo Zhang

    Welcome back to The Mining Pod! On today’s show, we’re sitting down with Leo Zhang of Alkimiya Protocol to discuss their novel trading solution for Bitcoin blockspace. Yes, you read that right! Alkimiya enables parties like wallets, miners or professional traders to take a position on Bitcoin blockspace. Widespread usage of this trading platform could enable wallets or others to issue on-chain transactions even when fees are high, balancing out the long term volatility of Bitcoin transaction fees. For miners, it might open up doors for trading a new commodity: Blockspace.

Not stale

Refreshing content in an ecosystem of overdone, lower-level bitcoin discussion. Nice to have a bitcoin pod that understands I don't want to listen to the same content over and over.

Bitcoin Charles ,

Everyone can mine bitcoin now!

Not only is this podcast fun and exciting to listen to, but there is a wealth of information that can be learned about an industry that will impact the future of our global macroeconomy. Highly recommend!!

Jamonun ,

LOVE THIS POD
