    Chia Asset Tokenization and Offer Files on the Chia Blockchain

    Chia Asset Tokenization and Offer Files on the Chia Blockchain

    In this episode of The Third Coin Podcast, Chia Asset Tokens and Offer Files on the Chia Blockchain.  Grant and Dan introduce Chia Asset Tokens and Offer Files.  Two new real-world use cases, one of which is exclusive to the Chia blockchain.

    (00:01:07) Grant introduces some new topics about Chia,

    (00:02:48) Dan explains offer files on the Chia blockchain.

    (00:03:48) Lewis asks how this differs from other chains and Grant clarifies what is new and what is similar to other blockchain codes.

    (00:08:20) Grant and Lewis talk about escrows and how blockchain can solve this real-world problem of trust.

    (00:11:37) Dan talks about his acquisition of CATs, the Chia Asset Tokens that are being produced and traded.

    (00:13:02) Grant and Dan talk about Chia Offer Files and how they can have more than two parties take place in a transaction.

    (00:13:56) Lewis and Grant realize how because of offer files and the fast-moving market of crypto that equity can be found when looking for offers that are still open.

    (00:16:57) Lewis and Grant talk about the idea behind the tech that created “offer files”.  This transitions to how the “coin” or UTX model blockchain works.  How in the coin model you always only have one coin in a wallet.  That one coin is the value sum of all your coins.

    (00:23:24) Lewis asks if you can trade other blockchains through the offer files…

    (00:23:41) This moves the discussion to “wraps” of the wrapping of a coin which is recommended for the next show.

    Something's Fishy about The Bitcoin Heist, The Third Coin Podcast

    Something's Fishy about The Bitcoin Heist, The Third Coin Podcast

    In this episode, we talk about privacy on a blockchain and what that means but to get there first we talk about how Something’s Fishing about the Bitcoin Heist Arrests on The Third Coin Podcast.

    The Third Coin Podcast is a conversation about the past, present, and future of Blockchain, Crypto, NFTs, and technology.  Discussions, interviews, answers, opinions, and maybe some conversation about what is the third coin.

    (00:00:32) Lewis intro’s the show

    (00:01:28) The gang talks about the people involved, Heather Morgan, 31, a published Forbes writer and rapper, who goes by the name 'Crocodile of Wall Street,' and her husband Ilya Lichtenstein, 34, a startup founder.

    (00:01:42)  Dan quote the article

    (00:02:32)  Grant gives his opinion, “something doesn’t smell right” we joke a little more, and at

    (00:03:43)  Lewis begs the question, “how does one steal bitcoin?” and Grant Explains. Grant, Dan, and Lewis continue about private keys and mnemonic word keys.  The conversation refocuses back to how one steals bitcoin for 4 minutes.

    (00:07:53)  Dan explains how glitches and vulnerabilities are the other way bitcoin could be stolen.

    (00:08:40) Grant finishes explaining wallets and how the coin is transferred and stored, ultimately what has to happen for it to exchange hands and what the ledger says.

    (00:12:08) Grant tells us about how to have a completely anonymous wallet.

    (00:14:24) Lewis makes the statement that most people aren’t putting the correct thought about how to remain anonymous and the conversation starts to explain the different ways an anonymous wallet becomes “doxxed” or exposed.

    (00:15:44) A good last explanation of what happens when people move stolen blockchain coins.

    (00:17:15) After seeing that only 96,000 of the stolen bitcoins were recovered the discussion turns to how do you own and transfer digital assets without losing anonymity?

    (00:17:53) Enter the privacy coin and coins like Monero. Multiple different questions and answers about privacy coins continue on.

    (00:22:48) Lewis wraps it up with a statement about the Bitcoin heist and how it almost has to be purposeful to get caught doing what Heather Morgan and her husband Ilya Lichtenstein got caught for.

    (00:24:24) Everyone wraps it up with some ideas for another discussion.

    That's everything for today's episode.
