Link - Yang Later on, we'll dig into the "why" of scams as we begin a longer conversation on the topic. Three main points on scams: Ponzi schemes thrive in disrupted spaces with uncertainty, poor credentialing, and poorly understood complexity The crypto currency space has these attributes The underlying appeal of ponzi scams and bitcoin comes from the mythology of redemption, getting something from nothing, the genie in the bottle, etc Links: How MLMs Use the Psychology of Influence The Cult Psychology Behind MLMs This episode of Let's Talk Bitcoin!

Show gathered to discuss Lightning Network technology and two innovative approaches at the wallet level which simplify the new-user experience at a tangible, but seemingly minimal cost.
In today's podcast we zero in on the challenge of "Channel Management", an until-recently-mandatory and manually-managed part of connecting to and utilizing the still-nascent Lightning Network. A little context: The way Andreas someone already using Lightning sends a payment to Stephanie through Lightning is either through a direct channel to her or through a route of hops that can eventually reach Stephanie. But if a user is brand new to the Lightning network, how do they go about receiving their first payment?
When Stephanie, a new user of Phoenix wants to be paid by Andreas, she will create an invoice on her phone, just like any other wallet. Andreas will then scan that QR code, send the payment, and it will look just like any other Lightning transaction to Andreas. If Stephanie currently has channels open with enough inbound capacity - Then it will complete successfully.
But what happens when there is not enough inbound capacity, or no channels at all? This is where Phoenix differs. Phoenix wallet offers no channel management to the end user, it is all done under the hood. This comes at a cost though, 0. Show gathered to discuss decentralization in blockchain projects, the historical context of decentralized organizations, the robustness it conveys but also the difficulties it engenders.
On today's podcast we apply concepts and stories from "The Spider and the Starfish: The Unstoppable Power of Leaderless Organizations", a formational book on pre-blockchain decentralization written in the early 's, as the centralized US military struggled to effectively dispatch a much smaller decentralized force in Afghanistan.
Later, we discuss the similarities between decentralized organizations and the Buddha's concept of self. Later, we'll discuss how AI and lawyers have more in common than you'd think, and what kind of protections we may need as autonomous agents become ubiquitous. Music for today's episode was provided by Jared Rubens, and general fuzz, with editing by Jonas. Hey folks, Adam B. Levine here with a brief update on LTB!. With dawning, we're coming up on year 8 of the Let's Talk Bitcoin!
In the early days we did a lot of interviews, but with the commercialization of the space, then ICOs, and now a world where there are literally thousands of blockchain projects hoping to strike it rich, we quickly became uncomfortable as the original nerd-money with its idealists became the world of pitches and marketers. Without many interviews, as the years passed the show has become more inward-looking, as we explored our personal passions and perspectives.
Perspective and personal context are arguably the thing I think is most important about what the show is, and what it's good at doing, and we'd like to build on that this year. So in , we want to do something a little different, and add more perspectives to the show without adding more permanent hosts.
We're looking for up to four listeners to join the Let's Talk Bitcoin! Junior producers will be asked to write up and send in a monthly report of the most important, most under-appreciated, most misunderstood, or other such personal judgments about the world of crypto.
You'll also be asked to join me on a monthly call to discuss your report, and make sure I understand your perspectives correctly. All told, for the right candidate, this work and follow-up meeting should take no longer than five hours per month. And this is a paid role. To apply, send an email to Adam ltbshow. On Today's episode of let's talk bitcoin, we're listening to echoes of the past.

Update Season 2 Coming Soon! Levine provides a brief update. LTB Why? That's the last thing that got us out of the last emergency and then people will finally realize they got nothing left.

Any questions or comments? On Today's Episode, Andreas M. Levine are back with part two of our recent live show recorded at BTC in front of a live studio audience. Enjoy the show! The truth is on a daily basis, every single miner in the industry looks at six or seven different factors: the efficiency of their mining equipment, the price of electricity in their local fiat, the cost of their operation system, the current price of Bitcoin in fiat, the reward that's available as a block subsidy, the average amount of fees they can get, and the relative proportion of hashing power.
They decide based on all of these factors. Do I leave this specific machine on at its current efficiency, or do I turn it off, or do I point it to another coin? That happens every single day. So the shift between block subsidy and fees happened every single day since January 3rd and it continues to happen today. Sometimes, the capacity of the blockchain, the number of transactions that are in there, the value of the fees mean that it really attracts miners because there's a lot of fees to take.
Other times, the fees decrease, the number of transactions decreases, so they're now more reliant on block subsidy and then it swings back and forth and back and forth. It's gonna oscillate in that way all the way to Antonopoulos: I don't think Rootstock is putting smart contracts on Bitcoin. Rootstock is allowing you to use Bitcoin to pay for smart contracts on the Rootstock Drivechain, which you could theoretically do by shifting money into Ethereum.
In fact, recently I saw someone who had built a gateway that allowed you to make a Lightning payment that terminated in an Ethereum contract. So there's many ways to bridge different blockchains together. Quite honestly, I don't think we should be doing smart contracts on Bitcoin. Bitcoin doesn't do smart contracts, and it doesn't do smart contracts because it does security.
That's not a trade-off I think is worth doing. It's much better to leave that to a chain that has a much more experimental culture and can take bigger risks. As to whether we can do smart contracts, that's not a binary question; it's a question of value. No, the DAO proved that. How about now? DAI is doing more, so maybe yes. So it's basically a moving front. As the maturity of the smart contract ecosystem expands, we can do bigger and bigger stakes no pun intended within the smart contract ecosystem.
Every now and then there's gonna be a fairly catastrophic failure that's gonna cause a regression in the amounts of money that's put in them. But essentially it's growing. We're proving this every day, and it's the same thing with Bitcoin.
The way you measure security in a smart contract or you measure security in a cryptocurrency like Bitcoin is how secure is Bitcoin? X billion dollars. That's the stake that is sitting on it right now, unhacked so far. We'll meet Jason, Chris, and Nicholas, all relatively new bitcoin users for a look at the value proposition and paths in for more recent converts.
