Bitcoin Magazine Podcast

We have very special episode this week featuring some of the godfathers of Bitcoin: Nick Szabo, Adam Back and David Chaum. This was recorded as a live panel from Seoul at Korea Blockchain Week and is laid out as a history of the ideas and events that led to Bitcoin from their first person accounts, plus their current thoughts on the experiment and what excites them about the future. From the cryptography and cypherpunk movements to David’s DigiCash, Adam’s Hashcash proof-of-work, Nick’s Bit Gold, and more. Their own contributions were foundational to the development of Bitcoin, and it was fascinating to have them together and playing off of each other in a discussion of that history. A special thanks for fact block for organizing.

35. Hope Floats Amongst The Hyacinths: Eliminating Nuisance Vegeation While Exporting Nutrients For Improved Water Quality; with Nick Szabo, founder of AguaCulture and Mike Elfenbein, Sportsman/Conservationist


Sometimes the answer to your biggest problem is in fact the problem itself. In this episode, we discuss a new pilot project in Glades County involving AguaCulture and my family's Lazy JP Ranch. This pilot project sponsored by the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission along with the United States Army Corps of Engineers, co-sponsored by the South Florida Water Management District, and funded through the Florida Department of Environmental Protection seeks to employee a radically improved system for mechanical harvesting of invasive aquatic vegetation, converting it into an organic resource that leads to the removal of nutrients from our state's water bodies. No one method of control will solve the challenge ahead of us, but this new approach has the potential to be a very powerful weapon in the arsenal. * Become a supporter; sign up as a Patreon Member ! *** Find Florida Art and Ranch Inspired Gear at Cowhunters Unlimited

Reboot - Shelling Out: The Origins of Money [Nick Szabo]

Bitcoin Audible

"The precursors of money, along with language, enabled early modern humans to solve problems of cooperation that other animals cannot – including problems of reciprocal altruism, kin altruism, and the mitigation of aggression. These precursors shared with non-fiat currencies very specific characteristics – they were not merely symbolic or decorative objects."  - Nick Szabo If you haven't listened to it yet, the time is now. If you have listened to it, then it can't hurt to listen to it again. One of the most essential prerequisites in the Bitcoin space to shine a light on the foundations of money, its history, and the nature of its origins. Today we reboot Nick Szabo's incredible piece, "Shelling Out: The Origins of Money."Check out the original piece hosted on the Nakamoto Institute, and of course the unenumerate blog where you can find hundreds of other excellent posts and works by Nick Szabo.https://nakamotoinstitute.org/shelling-out/https://unenumerated.blogspot.com/ Learn more about your ad choices.

Nick Szabo on Cypherpunks, Money and Bitcoin

What Bitcoin Did

Location: San FranciscoDate: Monday, 21st OctoberProject: n/aRole: Blockchain, cryptocurrency, and smart contracts pioneerOn October 31st 2008, Satoshi Nakamoto emailed the cypherpunk mailing list, telling them "I've been working on a new electronic cash system that's fully peer-to-peer, with no trusted third party." In the 11 years that followed Bitcoin has proven to be the most successful attempt at creating a censorship-resistant and trust minimised digital currency.Bitcoin was not the first attempt at creating a trust minimised currency, and there were several proposals, implementations and technologies which led to Bitcoin:In the 1990's DigiCash, headed by David Chaum, attempted to make online payments anonymous.In 1997 Adam Back created HashCash using a proof-of-work system to reduce email spam and prevent denial of service attacks.In 1998 Wei Dai proposed B-money to allow for an "anonymous, distributed electronic cash system".In 2004 Hal Finney built upon the idea of Hashcash and created Reusable Proofs of Work.And in 2005 Nick Szabo proposed Bit Gold. Where unforgettable proof of work chains would share properties of gold: scarce, valuable and trust minimised but with the benefit of being easily transactable.When Satoshi released the Bitcoin whitepaper, rather than a revolution, Bitcoin was an evolution of all that had come before it with Bitcoin being the most trust minimised, censorship-resistant and hardest currency that has ever existed.Among Satoshi's email recipients was Nick Szabo, a computer scientist, cryptographer, the designer of Bit Gold and Smart Contracts pioneer. In a rare interview, Nick joins me to discuss the cypherpunk movement, what money is, privacy and of course, Bitcoin.-----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 | 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.
