Sneakerheads on Bitcoin & Business - Nicky Nu - Bitstocks Podcast Ep. 38
In today’s #ConsciousConversations on the Bitstocks Podcast, Michael Hudson (Bitstocks CEO-Founder) talks with Nicky Nu, aka The Bitcoin Tramp on Twitter; a dancer, DJ & Co-founder of @GenuineRetweets. This conversation is one that many within the Bitcoin SV space have been waiting for. While Michael & Nicky have always shared admiration for each other's sneaker game, it’s safe to say that Nicky didn’t always understand Michael and his perspective on Bitcoin, or Bitstocks’ Bitcoin ecosystem, Gravity. Today the pair sit down face-to-face for the first time. They discuss a wide range of topics: from tokens, bitcoin & business ventures, to childhood, being a black man in business, the journey of self-mastery & what Bitstocks is building with Gravity.
In today’s #ConsciousConversations on the Bitstocks Podcast, Michael Hudson (Bitstocks CEO-Founder) talks with Daniel Krawisz, founder of Bitcoin Content Delivery Network (CDN), BitcoinFiles and Bitcoin service provider, Matterpool. Daniel Krawisz is well known in the BitcoinSV space and a conversation between Daniel and Michael is one that the community has been eager to hear! The gents waste no time and immediately delve into Daniel’s Bitcoin journey and how he came about creating Bitcoin Files, Matterpool and Boost. The condition of the BitcoinSV space is a topic highly explored in this episode of the Bitstocks podcast, with Michael and Daniel discussing the danger of herd-mentality, roadblocks and what can be done to improve our execution and collective mission. It’s clear that both Daniel and Michael share similar perspectives when it comes to Bitcoin as a biologically inspired network and its effects on social constructs and Capitalism, but where the two perhaps share slightly different opinions is how we make Bitcoin easier for everyone. The conversation ends with where the pair see Bitcoin in the next 5-10 years.

Lorien Gamaroff - Empowering Africa Through Bitcoin - Bitstocks Podcast Ep. 22
Centbee CEO and co-founder, Lorien Gamaroff, talks to Bitstocks CEO-Founder, Michael Hudson about empowering humanity, and Africa in particular, through Bitcoin. Lorien, a software engineer by training, originates from Zimbabwe where he worked in the energy industry at a time when Africans had little access to digital payment platforms. Bitcoin appeared as an ideal solution. When the Zimbabwe Central Bank destroyed the local currency, he started reading up about Austrian economics and the concept of sound money. Since then Lorien’s understanding of Bitcoin has evolved significantly and he’s highly sought after by institutions like central banks and the IMF to speak on the societal benefits of Bitcoin.
