In this episode, Dave and Grahm talk with Leo Weese, a Bitcoiner and statistician living in Hong Kong about the anti-extradition bill protests that have been escalating over the past week. Leo explains why Hong Kong isn't already under mainland China's rule as well as how serious of an infringement this bill could be on the rights of the citizens of Hong Kong and foreign nationals passing through the city. He gives tips for safe and private communication, and how Bitcoin is regulated in Hong Kong.

The other day, an interesting post crossed my path on "Crypto Twitter." This guy was super excited about receiving his Coinmine, a device I was not familiar with. It appeared to be a plug-and-play multi-purpose GPU miner and Bitcoin/Lightning Network full node. And it looked pretty. I was intrigued. I started investigating the product, and quickly discovered that Coinminer's headquarters is right here in Los Angeles. And that's how my interview with Farbood Nivi, CEO and co-founder of Coinmine, was conceived.

I hadn't really considered multi-purpose devices such as a Coinmine, which currently can mine Ethereum, Monero, Zcash and Grin. It's not hard to imagine that future incarnations of this product could bring full Bitcoin/Lightning nodes and speculative Cryptocurrency mining to many new mainstream people who are willing to pay a premium for this level of simplicity. Could cloud-controlled plug-and-play devices theoretically give a centralized party too much control over a lot of miners? Please comment below if you have thoughts!

After arranging this interview, Coinmine offered me a $50 discount for listeners, which can be claimed using the discount code BitcoinGame at checkout, or going to this URL: https://coinmine.com/bitcoingame. The Bitcoin Game will receive a referral fee for purchases using this code, however, that did not influence the content of this episode. Before purchasing, please consider electricity usage in addition to the cost of the miner itself, and note that Bitcoin and Lightning Network features are not active yet.

Lauren, Stephanie, and I sat down for our third show in which we answered questions from the audience. These are easily becoming our favorite and most popular discussions. The first question deals with consent from a listener whose boyfriend secretly video taped an intimate evening. Where do you draw the line and is this grounds for a break-up?

Next up, we discuss sexy pregnancy pictures which also brings up the topic of breast-feeding in public. What's appropriate and is this something you need to share on social media? Finally, we answer a question about facial hair. Is the beard trend becoming a bit too much?

Thank you to all of our listeners for your great questions. Be sure to keep them coming and share your questions with your friends.

Do you have a burning question, or a show idea for us? Please email us at tatiana@proofoflovecast.com!

Interview location: Munich

Interview date: Saturday 1st Jun, 2019

Company: Crypto Advance

Role: CTO & co-founder

Cryptography is the art of writing or solving codes, and there are several technologies which enable Bitcoin to function. When choosing to send Bitcoin to someone, a transaction is broadcast using the new owners public key and signed with the senders private key, and it is the senders private key which confirms to the network that the transaction is authentic. Further, a hashcash function is used to preserve the integrity of the blockchain.

'Ĺ“With this framework, we are able to achieve the essential functions of the Bitcoin system. We have verifiable ownership of bitcoins, and a distributed database of all transactions, which prevents double spending.'

The cryptographic protocols are hard to crack, which maintains the security of Bitcoin, but quantum computers pose a threat to this as they would be able to solve these problems easily.

In this interview, I chat with Stepan Snigirev about the quantum threat to Bitcoin. Having left his role as a quantum physicist to work on Bitcoin, Stepan is ideally placed to discuss the topic. Stepan explains the weird world of quantum mechanics, the status of quantum computing and the threat it poses to Bitcoin.

Before Josh and I sat down with Ford in this episode of the Tatiana Show, we caught up with Patrick from PorcFest. After we learned all about this year's event happening later this month in New Hampshire, we talked to Ford and the problems he is having with censorship on YouTube. After two of his videos were deleted, YouTube decided to demonetize him, which is basically a death sentence for independent journalists who rely on revenue from the site to survive and continue their work.

Is this practice a violation of our 1st amendment rights and would it be wise to ask the government to get involved? What other platforms are there that are available? Have incidents such as the shootings in New Zealand that were live streamed giving the platforms another reason to censor us? What updates does he have regarding Chelsea Manning and the Wiki-Leaks drama? We discuss all of these topics and more on today's episode.

About the Guests:

Ford Fischer is the co-founder and editor-in-chief of News2Share, an outlet that uses raw footage and livestream to cover activism and extremism. His work has been used in dozens of documentaries and films including Oscar and Emmy winners, and every major news network.

We're joined by Tal Mogan, Chief Scientist at Spacemesh. This new consensus protocol is designed to run on home desktop PCs, filling free space on users' hard drives to create a Proof of Space-Time. The goal of this new blockchain protocol is to solve the issues with Proof of Work and Proof of Stake, that is, energy inefficiency on the one hand, and possible centralized plutarchy of rich validators on the other.

Topics discussed in this episode:

  • Tal's background as an academic and researcher
  • The problems with Proof of Stake and Proof of Work
  • What is Proof of Space-Time and how it works
  • How miners use their hard drive space to establish proofs
  • How randomness is generated in Spacemesh
  • Spacemesh's DAG architecture and how blocks are added to the chain
  • The tortoise and hare protocols proposed by Spacemesh
  • The Spacemesh team and recent funding round
  • The project's business model and roadmap
