Peter has been publicly discussing Monero as an interesting project from its earliest days. In fact, Doug reveals how he first learned of Monero from a Peter Todd Podcast. In this episode Doug asks Peter a series of questions comparing bitcoin’s various security risks to Monero's, most notably they discuss Bitcoin’s most glaring security risk— a fixed coin supply that lacks a monero-like tail emission to insure miners will have an incentive to mine in perpetuity.Links: Peter Todd: https://twitter.com/peterktoddSPONSOR: Cake Wallet, the first open-source Monero (& now Bitcoin!) wallet for iOS.

Hard Forks Better Than Soft Forks? Dev Peter Todd on the Bitcoin Scaling Debate, Why it Was Controversial, and Is the Lightning Network the Right Solution?
Developer Peter Todd joins Charlie Shrem on this week’s episode of Untold Stories. They begin by talking about Peter's focus on community rather than software as an important aspect of crypto. Charlie asks why the Bitcoin scaling debate was so controversial and it leads to an extensive discussion of the events of the debate, people involved, and some of the toxic environment during that period. They compare scaling and community aspects as it relates to Bitcoin, Ethereum, and Ripple as well. Peter predicts that Lightning Network will continue to grow, but not everyone will like it. He talks about the risks associated with ICO's and dishonest projects, Tierion, stablecoins, his open source project OpenTimestamps, and other decentralized projects. Charlie and Peter finish up with a discussion on hard and soft forks and Bitcoin's Berkeley DB hard fork incident.---BitPay gives you the tools to live life on crypto.
