Bitcoin Blocksize Rants & Raves: Long Waits & High Fees (Bonus Episode)

Scaling Bitcoin: Increasing the Maximum Blocksize

After recording last week’s podcast—Ep195: Confessions of a Bitcoiner, South Korea Scandal Fit for a Movie, Crypto Security—Darren continued chatting with our friend/special guest Andy, who works at a Bitcoin ATM company. While JJ and Randy began prepping the new episode for publishing, Darren said he wished we could have an episode where we just kind of vented about what was happening to the Bitcoin network and within the Bitcoin community.

Rather than wait for some other time, we hit record again while the energy was still high. And thus, a bonus episode was born! We also talk with Andy about some of the topics we discussed with him in our main episode… like privacy, encryption, Dash, Monero, Zcash, Ethereum and how to better secure & anonymize cryptocurrency transactions.

Link from the show: Darren mentioned a short post he’d written for the Neocash Radio blog several years ago—How to rebroadcast a transaction on Blockchain.info—and Andy commented that it had been helpful to him and that he’d sent it along to several other people, so we’re including an additional link to it here for anyone interested!

Bitcoin Unlimited: on-chain scaling -- Roger Ver interview -- Neocash Radio podcastRelated listening: We’ve also got a special bonus interview with Roger Ver that we recently posted! Listen in as Bitcoin Angel Investor and Bitcoin.com CEO Roger Ver talks with us about how the current Bitcoin block size limit is throttling the Bitcoin network, and how Bitcoin Unlimited could be poised to increase the block size and allow the Bitcoin network to scale.

Bitcoin Unlimited: Special Interview with Roger Ver

In this bonus episode of Neocash Radio, Bitcoin angel investor & Bitcoin.com CEO Roger Ver talks with JJ, Darren, and Randy about Bitcoin Unlimited, a new initiative that lets Bitcoin miners dictate the block size they want to use. Could this be an end to the BTC block size debate? Will this require a hard fork? Could that create two different Bitcoin chains like what happened with Ethereum? What does Roger plan to do if Bitcoin doesn’t scale and loses its value? We also discuss censorship on Reddit’s r/bitcoin channel, the Lightning Network, SegWit, and more!
