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.
