Bitcoin Toxicity with Giacomo Zucco & Neil Woodfine
What Bitcoin Did
“It may be one shot, it’s important, the consequences on civilisation are huge, so we want to be over-cautious about not compromising the culture or the technical features of Bitcoin.”— Giacomo ZuccoLocation: SquadcastDate: Thursday 24th September Company: BHB Network & BlockstreamRole: Director & Marketing DirectorBitcoin can be a toxic place. Ask the wrong question or fall on the wrong side of an argument; the community can be vicious in its response. It is a daunting place with Bitcoiners not only clashing with altcoin projects but with each other regarding Bitcoin ideas too. Rarely a day passes without a fight of some kind exploding on Twitter.However, toxicity plays an important role. Bitcoin is a threat to the legacy financial system, and being decentralised; anyone can contribute. Bitcoin is therefore open to a broad range of attacks from technical to social and Bitcoin's immune system defends against these attacks to protect the protocol.Segwit2x highlighted how a group might choose to co opt Bitcoin with dangerous consequences. Radical scepticism is levelled against other projects, people and companies to ensure that no outside party can have a negative influence on the future of the best money we have ever had.So, what are the positives and negatives of toxicity in Bitcoin? When does toxicity cross the line and are there any unintended consequences?In this interview, I am joined by Bitcoin consultant and educator Giacomo Zucco and Neil Woodfine, Marketing Director for Blockstream. We discuss toxic Bitcoin maximalism, unintended consequences and politics within Bitcoin.This episode’s sponsors:Kraken - The best place to buy, sell & trade BitcoinBlockFi - The future of Bitcoin financial services Sportsbet.io - Online sportsbook & casino that accepts BitcoinCasa - The leading provider of Bitcoin multisig key security.Least Authority - Helping projects improve their security and build secure technology.-----WBD267 Show Notes: https://www.whatbitcoindid.com/podcast/bitcoin-toxicity-----If you enjoy The What Bitcoin Did Podcast you can help support the show my doing the following:Become a Patron and get access to shows early or help contributeMake a tip:Bitcoin: 3FiC6w7eb3dkcaNHMAnj39ANTAkv8Ufi2SQR Codes: BitcoinIf you do send a tip then please email me so that I can say thank youSubscribe on iTunes | Spotify | Stitcher | SoundCloud | YouTube | Deezer | TuneIn | RSS FeedLeave a review on iTunesShare the show and episodes with your friends and familySubscribe to the newsletter on my websiteFollow me on Twitter Personal | Twitter Podcast | Instagram | Medium | YouTubeIf you are interested in sponsoring the show, you can read more about that here or please feel free to drop me an email to discuss options.

What Bitcoin Did
Interview location: SkypeInterview date: Wednesday 2nd Jan, 2019Matt Odell: Co-host of Rabbit Hole Recap podcastNeil Woodfine: Marketing Director at Blockstream2018 was quite the year for the cryptocurrency space, a space which many maximalists do not even believe should include Bitcoin. There is a growing voice of “Bitcoin, not crypto”, where Bitcoiners are creating a divide between Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies as they believe that Bitcoin is different and should not be tarnished with the bad publicity regarding many of the other projects.While Bitcoin prices have also dropped, there was a considerable amount of good news in 2018: from the rise of institutional products and the growth of the Lightning Network.In this episode, I talk with Bitcoin Maximalists Matt Odell from Rabbit Hole Recap and Neil Woodfine from Blockstream. We discuss what we would like to see for Bitcoin in 2019, challenges Bitcoin companies face and Bitcoin education.-----If you enjoy The What Bitcoin Did Podcast you can help support the show my doing the following:Become a Patron and get access to shows early or help contributeMake a tip:Bitcoin: 3FiC6w7eb3dkcaNHMAnj39ANTAkv8Ufi2SQR Codes: Bitcoin | Ethereum | Litecoin | Monero | ZCash | RipplecoinIf you do send a tip then please email me so that I can say thank youSubscribe on iTunes | Spotify | Stitcher | SoundCloud | YouTube | TuneIn | RSS FeedLeave a review on iTunesShare the show and episodes with your friends and familySubscribe to the newsletter on my websiteFollow me on Twitter Personal | Twitter Podcast | Instagram | Medium | YouTubeIf you are interested in sponsoring the show, you can read more about that here or please feel free to drop me an email to discuss options.

Wyre's Neil Woodfine on Bitcoin in China (Part 2): the Bitcash split and the trouble with ICOs
The Fintech in China Show
Neil Woodfine is the Growth Manager for Wyre in Asia and the Organiser of Beijing’s Bitcoin Meetup. He is Long Bitcoin. In this follow up episode of The Fintech in China Show with Neil Woodfine on Bitcoin in China, Neil talks with us about the tumultuous events within the Bitcoin network up to early August 2017.This episode was recorded before the People’s Bank of China's decision on September 2, 2017 to halt unregulated Initial Coin Offerings (ICOs) in China. Nevertheless, the questions we discuss the recent attempt to fork Bitcoin and the creation of Bitcash, the extent to which power over the Bitcoin network protocol had become concentrated among Bitcoin miners in China, and the resilience of the Bitcoin network will remain crucial to Bitcoin’s future beyond the recent regulatory moves in China against illegal fundraising via ICOs, and beyond temporary halts to trading by any Bitcoin exchanges in China.In this follow up episode on Bitcoin in China, Neil talks with us about: The recent attempt to split Bitcoin and the creation of the altcoin, Bitcash. Why ‘scalability’ is a big issue for Bitcoin. The degree to which control over the Bitcoin protocol is decentralised. Whether ICOs are primarily scams. How these dynamics have played out inside and outside China. Bitcoin s development potential in China and elsewhere. We hope you enjoy this Q & A with Neil Woodfine. You can catch our earlier discussion with Neil here on Bitcoin in China: Part 1.Wyre is a cross-border payment platform for businesses making payments around the world.
