Rick Falkvinge: Let's talk more about what Permissionless actually means.
 
10:40
In this video, Rick talks about what a Permissionless environment actually means, and *that* manifesto on Bitcoin Cash. Many people don't realize how deep the rabbit hole goes, and keep asking permission -- from each other, from miners, from anybody. Permissionless means you do first, and worry about what other people think later. Not the other way around. That is, in the case you worry about what other people think _at all,_ which you probably shouldn't. We're All Satoshi is sponsored by Private Internet Access, the world's leading no-log VPN service.

Jörg von Minckwitz of Bitwala on bitcoin factions, Ethereum, and the rise of Iota (3 of 4)
 
06:59
Episode 6. Clip three of four. Jörg von Minckwitz, CEO of award-winning Bitwala, is strongly in favor of Bitcoin Core (the current majority-hashrate bitcoin team and blockchain). But he leaves a generous opening for Bitcoin Cash to prove itself over time: "This is why we're supporting both coins [bitcoin lecacy and cash]. I like challenges. I didn't sell my Bitcoin Cash. If [Bitcoin Cash] wins, I'm there too, like I'm a bitcoin enthusiast and I like evolution - if it's Bitcoin Cash, I'm the biggest fan too, but for now, they need some proof of... work. [...] We'll see in which direction it goes, but I'm a little bit sceptical [of Bitcoin Cash]." Regarding small payments, Jörg wouldn't use bitcoin. Nor would he use Ethereum: "I would use Ethereum as a supercomputer where you can write smart contracts... but the [micro]payment itself, I would use Iota." Jörg further notes that Iota is developed here in Berlin, and that the internet-of-things company SatoshiPay recently started using Iota: "Iota has a different principle behind it... you don't need a blockchain to confirm transactions... I find it really interesting in terms of scalability."

Going from Fiat Money to Bitcoin: Jörg von Minckwitz of Bitwala (2 of 4)
 
08:46
Episode 6. Clip two of four. Jörg von Minckwitz, CEO of Bitwala: "When I got into bitcoin, there was only MtGox, which is... not here anymore." Jörg explains that there were so many which could benefit from bitcoin, but they didn't want to do anything with it. "So we needed to make it ourselves, we needed to bridge the old system with the new." Bitwala is not just challenging the central-bank fiat system using cryptocurrency transfers and cryptocurrency money services comparable apples-to-apples with legacy banking, but is also interfacing with other challengers the Kenyan M-PESA system: "The old system isn't made for international transfers. We are 15 employees, we have customers in 100 countries." "The old system just isn't made for it. When we did a legacy transfer to Argentina, it took us six days. We said, this is not an option for bitcoin users. So we did the same thing with bitcoin, and [the delay] went down from one week to less than a day, and then, even conservative people realized: Maybe Bitwala is onto something here." "Up until now, [we've just been offering] crypto-to-fiat, but we already have the infrastructure to do fiat-to-fiat. We will finish this by the end of 2017." Bitwala won third prize in the German innovation contest earlier this year - not in the Fintech category, but across all categories: "That was the moment when we realized even conservative people in our government is realizing that what we're doing is changing the world." "That was a really big moment, because it was a governmental prize, and we won third prize! And so we realized that when even conservative people in our government see this, we can really change the way people transfer and use money in the future."

Psychopath Code: Let's talk about predators

Having been a couple of years into politics, Rick has extensive experience with people who seek to prey on a collaborative and friendly environment.

If you haven't encountered a person like this, you would find it hard to believe they even exist.

Episode 7. Clip 4 of 4. Aaron draws the big picture from his experience as a futurologist. On the value of Bitcoin in 10 years, as measured in USD or Euro: "This is like measuring Facebook shares in the value of Friendster shares, or Myspace shares... it doesn’t make sense to use that measurement [after a certain point]... the interesting question is, what's the value of bitcoin in gold?" "I'm in favor of cities. I'm very much in favor of the free private cities..." "The first [free private] city will be on an island off the coast of Honduras. I really like that concept." "Capitalism is all about cooperation... it's actually quite altruistic, because you have to put yourself in the shoes of your customer, you can't be an egoist. You have to think about others and do something that is beneficial to them."

Episode 6. Clip one of four. Jörg von Minckwitz, co-founder and CEO of Bitwala, compares bitcoin to Napster - he says there has been three times in his life when truly disruptive technology hit him in the face and made him realize nothing's gonna be the same again: with the Internet, with the rise of the freely shared MP3 files, and with bitcoin. "Sometimes, you have an opportunity to change to something new that makes you completely rethink what you had before." Discussion with Rick Falkvinge about how the United States demanded Russia would change their radio law, permitting cheap mp3 files, as requirement for admission into the WTO: the US could have demanded absolutely anything, and they chose to demand an end to discounts on mp3 sales. Clear parallels to current bitcoin development. Jörg bought his first two bitcoin for one euro, giving an incredible one-million per cent return on investment. "I bought much more bitcoin later, but these first two ones were the best."

Jörg von Minckwitz on leapfrogging technologies and changing the world (4 of 4)
 
12:39
Episode 6. Clip four of four. Jörg von Minckwitz, CEO of Bitwala, explores the future of cryptocurrency a little longer term, and discusses the adoption of electricity, of the Internet, of Napster and other technologies with Rick Falkvinge. What will our grandchildren think of bitcoin that we don't see today, the way we don't think in electricity in terms of how it replaces steam power? Jörg observes that innovation is exponential, ideas move faster and faster. The Internet was adopted in a fraction of the time it took electricity, and newer technologies go even faster. Future technologies will be built on blockchain technology in the same way, and we'll see it for what it has enabled. Ideas move much quicker, but do people change their habits faster just because ideas spread faster? Jörg observes that this is not a problem for large-scale change, as two-thirds of the world's population do not have access to money as we know it, access to financial services: "Bitcoin changes this completely, there's no credit score checks or whatever, because it's not based on debt anymore - but as soon as everything is prepaid, when you can't go into debt, you don't need the credit scoring anymore." The other big thing that's about to change, says Jörg, is identity. He has had people give his address as "I'm living in this street, right hand side, blue house" as their actual address. Without the requirement for a credit score, the need for this address and similar data also disappears. The third thing is raw efficiency. As an example, Jörg mentions that the stock exchanges of Germany and Switzerland are still operating on paper documents, where somebody literally crosses out a previous owner on a document and writes in a new owner, to store the document in the basement.

Jörg brings more than 6 year of experience in Blockchain and Cryptocurrency sectors. Prior to Bitwala, he co-founded Transisor Coworking, Europe’s first Bitcoin coworking space; Bitcoin's Berlin, a Crypto Incubator; and All4BTC - Europe's first crypto e-commerce shop.

Let's talk about UTXOs and "batching"
 
09:22
In this video, Rick responds to comments on our Segwit update that so-called "batching" would be the cause of the lower transaction count on the BTC chain, with the argument that measurably lower transaction count therefore wouldn't be worth any attention. In short, batching is neither this magical unicorn word it's thrown around as (it's actually quite a simple concept), nor the reason for transaction count being down. As a bonus, there's a primer here on what UTXOs are. Connect with Rick on Twitter: @Falkvinge Blog: https://falkvinge.net/ Free download of _Swarmwise:_ https://falkvinge.net/books/
