Podcast 1 – Beginners Guide to Bitcoin

This is the launch of the beginners guide to bitcoin podcasts.

In this first episode I have a wide-ranging conversation with Sam Odegbaro about the basics of bitcoin, blockchain and all things cryptocurrency. There will be a part 2 to this conversation in a weeks time.

We cover quite a lot, including:

What is Bitcoin?
What are cryptocurrencies?
What is the blockchain?
Blockchain governance — is there any existential risk?
Quantum computers and the risk they might pose to bitcoin in the future.
