The concept of a decentralized exchange has been a holy grail in the cryptocurrency space for many years. Many attempts have been made, but most decentralized exchanges suffered from central points of failure, poor user experience and little liquidity.

Launched during Ethereum's DevCon 2018, Uniswap is one of the first fully decentralized exchanges and managed to become the leading DEX very fast. We were joined by Uniswap Founder Hayden Adams to discuss Uniswap's unique model, the different participants in the protocol and the importance of decentralized exchanges for the blockchain space.

Topics discussed in this episode:

  • How Hayden's exploratory project to learn smart contract development took off and became Uniswap
  • How Uniswap works and its different participants
  • The advantage of an automated exchange instead of using order books
  • The role of liquidity providers in Uniswap
  • Feedback loops that can make Uniswap markets popular or collapse
  • The challenging economics of liquidity shares
  • Addressing Arthur Hayes' criticism of decentralized exchanges
  • Why Uniswap didn't create a tokeneconomic monetization model

Chuck and Danny from The Crypto Show stopped by to chat with Josh and myself. The show has been on the air since 2013 and has made an impact beyond just entertainment. They have helped feed the homeless in Austin, assisted with Hurricane Harvey relief, and were on-hand to help those affected by earthquakes in Mexico.

We ask them who their most interesting guests have been over the years and their thoughts on the future of crypto-currency and Facebook coin.

Thank you to our sponsors SaltLending.com, Blocktap.io, & Vaultoro.com!

About the Guests:

Danny Sessoms is a Central Texas entrepreneur that not only accepts bitcoin for services but actively encourages other business's to do so as well. After realizing the joke called the political system was not designed to help anyone, bitcoin was easily realized as an actual form of activism. As cohost and creative director Danny mixes various pro liberty topics with the ideas of decentralized technologies.

Chuck enjoys researching, understanding, and evangelizing the convergence of technology, economics, & philosophy in cryptocurrency & blockchains. He executes these activities as co-host of The Crypto Show (www.thecryptoshow.com), as an advisor to blockchain/software projects, and orchestrating software product implementations with the Equa Start (equastart.io) team.

Interview location: London

Interview date: Tuesday 11th Jun, 2019

Company: Casa

Role: Founder

One of the hardest things to define is what Bitcoin is. Is it digital gold, a medium of exchange or an entirely new financial system? As people continue to fight on Reddit about whether Satoshi built Bitcoin as a store of value or a medium of exchange, would he have envisaged Microsoft would create decentralised IDs using the protocol?

As Bitcoin continues to evolve, it is becoming more apparent that the protocol has the potential to be much more than just money, even more than a new financial system. Bitcoin could change our entire relationship with the Internet, each other and our governments.

I met with Jeremy to discuss the Tweetstorm he published addressing threats to the ad tech industry. I wrote about something similar, the decentralised threat to advertising, the common thread being the growth of data farming by silicon valley behemoths eroding our privacy.

Jeremy identified that Bitcoin has changed the game, creating an imperative for Bitcoiners to protect their privacy. Other large companies are recognising this too, not just Microsoft with their decentralised IDs, but now Apple is stepping up their game with their new privacy-focused login functions. What is clear is that privacy is now in demand and becoming a tool for competition.

In this interview, we quickly moved beyond ad tech and discussed how Bitcoin changes everything, a civilisation change and we may be just scratching the surface. The impact on the Internet and society at large could be profound, killing the freemium web model and giving users much more control over their data and online relationships.
